It’s been almost 10 years since Twilight hit theaters and the world was introduced to Robert Pattinson in all his vampire glory. The actor has had a lot of work since his rise to fame in the successful franchise — but he noticeably hasn’t had a role quite like Edward Cullen since. The 31-year-old said goodbye to his super pale skin and color contacts in order to pursue different kinds of movie roles.
However, that doesn’t necessarily mean he’s not open to the idea of reprising the role of the beloved vampire. Film studios have already expressed interest in making another Twilight film in order to continue the story. When he was told this in a recent interview with Huffington Post, he responded, “Really?” He then thrust his hands into the air and yelled with “faux-enthusiasm: “Yes!”
“Well, you never know,” he admitted. “It did inspire me at the time. And, really, it’s kind of awesome. It’s the way people interpret it. People would excuse you for not taking something seriously if it becomes this mainstream thing and everyone’s fiending. I took it just as seriously — more seriously — than other things I’ve done.”
Well, whether Rob decides to make another Twilight movie or just continues making movies in other genres, we’ll be happy. He just looks so good on the big screen!
