Robert Pattinson Steps Aside: The MTV News Quote Of The Day

"I'm not the lead in the second film. Taylor is. I appear in Bella's dreams. So I'm in it but the focus is not on me. I just have significant moments at the beginning ... and the end. So I'm more of a supporting role in this one, which is why I felt so free. I didn't have to deal with any of the bullsh-- of the first one. I don't have to hold the movie or worry about the fans. I think I did it better without all those pressures."

-"Twilight" heartthrob Robert Pattinson, talking to the Sydney Morning Herald about his role in "New Moon." The story of the second book in the "Twilight" series sees Pattinson's Edward Cullen putting himself in self-imposed exile, which means that his screen time is significantly cut down in the second film. Worry not, though, as were-hunk Taylor Lautner steps in to play the role of lust object. Though the actor has had a great deal of success thanks to "Twilight," he's not without regrets. For one thing, he wishes he hadn't recorded a song for the soundtrack for the first movie. "When the first film came out I felt like a complete tosser," he explained. "It looked like I was trying to be cool or something, like Eminem. You know, be in a movie and then do a song for the soundtrack. But I didn't look cool, I just looked ridiculous."
