All week long, we’ve been bringing questions straight from the mouths of Twilighters worldwide to the stars of this month’s [movie id="414921"]“New Moon”[/movie] You guys have already been able to get them to open up about online haters , vital plot points and even “sexual white chocolate.”
Now, the fun continues with part four of “New Moon” Stars Answer Fans’ Burning Questions, starring three of our favorite “New Moon” males. Read on for their revealing thoughts on iPods, extra scenes they wanted inserted in the sequel and why it ain’t easy being [movieperson id="365131"]Robert Pattinson[/movieperson].
Jamie Campbell Bower
Q: What is Rob Pattinson like behind the scenes?
Campbell Bower: Well, he’s into his music. He loves all kinds of music. I don’t know if there’s a tidbit I could give, a snippet of his life that I could give. He’s just a normal guy. I feel for him already, because people just want to know everything about him and feel like they own [people who are that famous]. It’s tough, man. It’s tough for them.
MTV: But Rob’s experience could be a preview of what’s to come for you after “New Moon.” Does that kind of fame concern you?
Campbell Bower: I don’t know. Probably not, just because of the character. I think people won’t be as in love with the character Caius as they would be in love with Edward. [Laughs.]
Q: We know there will be more Edward in the “New Moon” movie than there was in the book, but did you and the other Cullens ever try to lobby for more screen time as well?
Lutz: I think I really tried to. I tried to throw in my two cents, to see if Emmett and Rosalie could have a honeymoon again in Italy so we could be around and be part of the whole situation of Edward, Alice and Bella. [But the script] has to really follow the book, because the fans are so die-hard about what happened in the book. I mean, I had a line that was in the ["Twilight"] trailers that wasn’t in the book, and I heard some of the fans saying, “That’s not in the book!” Like, “What the heck is up with that?” So, in “New Moon,” the script is very similar to the book and the Cullens are in where they would be in, and they aren’t put in anywhere else.
MTV: It would be kind of cheesy if Edward and Bella just happened to bump into the Cullens in Italy.
Lutz: [Laughs.] Well, I thought it would be a fun idea. Because my character, as well as Nikki Reed’s Rosalie, we go away to college. We’re a year older, along with Jasper and Alice, so I think it could be a cool thing to maybe show a clip of them somewhere — a fun honeymoon, away from the rest of the family. But, no.
Q: What music is on your iPod playlist?
Burke: I have a huge, hugely eclectic collection. There’s a lot of the stuff that’s swimming out there right now. I’m a big Kings of Leon fan, then I like some of the older [stuff]. I like old Billy Joel, old Elton John. I’m a huge Tom Waits fan. I have his entire collection. And a lot of Peter Murphy’s stuff with Bauhaus . Then the other side of that, I like country music as well. I’ve got a lot of country music on there. So, it runs the gamut.
MTV: We all remember those shots a few months ago of the “Eclipse” cast at the Kings of Leon concert . Were you there?
Burke: I was not there. I was gone. I come to the set for a week, two weeks at a time, and then I’m away. And I happened to be away at that time during that week, which was kind of a pisser.
MTV: That must have sucked, to see the photos online of your friends at a concert by one of your favorite bands.
Burke: Yeah, and they probably got carte blanche to do anything they wanted, like hang out, go backstage, whatever. But you know what? That’s OK, because I probably would have felt like the old guy hanging out with them anyways.
