Robert Pattinson believes he landed his starring role in Twilight because of his connection with costar Kristen Stewart.
The British actor plays vampire Edward Cullen in the smash hit movie franchise.
And Pattinson is adamant it was his inability to be “Prince Charming” during his audition for Twilight that got him his part in the film.
He explains, “I was one of the last people they saw.
“I just went in and I had a connection with Kristen. I think it was because I so expected it to be different to how it turned out and expected the girl who played Bella to be so different to Kristen, that I was so genuinely shocked when she did her performance.
“I just thought it was going to be a real damsel in distress actress. And I couldn’t pretend to be the Prince Charming to some dippy girl! Not that that is how the book is.
“But I thought that was how the film would turn out. And of course Kristen is tough, smart and a good actress, and so it completely changed my opinion and so I ended up playing him as a kind of a wreck. That was how that happened.”
Pattinson and Stewart reprise their roles as Edward and Bella, respectively, in Twilight sequel New Moon, which is due out later this year.
Kristen, 18, recently denied she and Robert were a couple.
