Movieline Catherine famously made you, along with her other candidates, kiss Kristen Stewart in auditions for Twilight. Were there any similar chemistry tests on Red Riding Hood?
Yeah, we did a bunch of auditions with Red Riding Hood, too. I’ve really never played the romantic role. Skateland, sort of, but aloof. That’s not really a romantic lead, he’s a charismatic kid who’s probably attractive to some people in East Texas. But Twilight and this movie would be more considered romantic, and I just never get those opportunities. I would say that Catherine has a different take on how she finds that chemistry. There was a quote that I gave about Kristen that came off very poorly and they didn’t use my [full quote]. I felt bad because it was something about her being nervous, and truly it was me. She had the part and I came in so nervous and so wanting it that I probably blew it. I probably wasn’t ready as an actor, wasn’t mature enough to match her, because she is a fantastic actress.
Robert Pattinson recently said he spends his spare time in his trailer watching Two and a Half Men. So life after that role ain’t that grand after all.
Well on set I spend my time in my time watching The Biggest Loser. No, I’m joking. It’s The Bachelor. No, I’m joking. I’ve said it before, I think he’s handled himself amazingly well and he’s a very interesting person.
