Look, this Twilight thing isn’t going to last forever, but it sounds like no one is wishing for it to end more than Robert Pattinson. In an interview with the New York Times this weekend, our favorite sensitive vampire copped to being a little tired of the saga that’s turned him into a teen heartthrob and turned his relationship status into the topic of serious debate.
Pattinson said of his role as Edward, and the unending fascination we all have with the franchise, “It can get a little boring. The good news is that the whole thing is done in seven months.” Sure, he means the shooting schedule will wrap in seven months, but RPattz and Co. will still have to endure shrieking fans until at least 2012, when the final installment of Breaking Dawn is expected to release. But don’t get him wrong, he’s not putting down the films or his fans, just the monster that the media has created. He explains “The more you are exposed, the more people irrationally hate you, I think we reached a point, a peak, with New Moon where the stories became so saturated into the culture that it started to feel normal. It’s like the tabloids don’t know what to write anymore because they’ve used up all their scandals.” True, Pattinson and co-star/possible girlfriend Kristen Stewart have been fake engaged, fake pregnant, and fake broken up already, so we can see his point. Pattinson has been shooting the upcoming Water For Elephants as a vacation from vamping, but he can’t distance himself for long – production on Breaking Dawn begins in October.
