Why must Robert Pattinson taunt us so? There’s still three more days until he stops by for “MTV First: Robert Pattinson,” a 30-minute chat on Friday (March 18) during which he’ll take fan questions and debut a new clip from his latest film “Water For Elephants.”
Luckily, we’ve found a way to pass the time until he arrives. In addition to checking out reader questions via Twitter (you can still send them our way @MTVNews with the hash tag #AskRob at the end of your inquiry) we started counting down MTV’s top 5 favorite RPattz moments.
On Monday we took a look back at an April 2008 interview in which the star, just shortly before the days of ear-piercing Twi-hards took over, had a playful chat with MTV and his “Twilight” co-star Kristen Stewart. Rob discussed topics like why K-Stew is the greatest actress of her generation to what their on-screen kisses were like.
Which, fittingly, brings us to our lip-smacking #4 favorite Robert Pattinson moment on MTV. Read about it after the jump!
When Rob is up for an MTV Movie Award, it’s in your best interest to check him off on your ballot. The guy has an outstanding record with voters. So it wasn’t a surprise that Rob and Kristen were awarded with Best Kiss for the second year in a row at last year’s show, this time for their on-screen smooch in “New Moon.” When the “Twilight” superstars hit the stage at the 2010 ceremony to accept their golden popcorn, they created our #4 moment: “The Kiss That Wasn’t.”
Feast your eyes on the duo’s cute/awkward banter during their acceptance speech and then as they tease the fans (See? He’s got a history of this sort of thing!) with the promise of a live Bella and Edward kiss. The moment perfectly encapsulates the two, from their grateful, yet anxious demeanor to their are-they-or-aren’t-they-a-real-life-couple vibe. You can practically feel the tension eminating from the pair and the anticipation of the audience building throughout. So, pucker up and enjoy the clip!
Watch “MTV First: Robert Pattinson” on MTV and MTV.com this Friday at 8:56 PM EST!
