[On his fans and Twilight] “I don’t credit that to myself,” Pattinson says. “It’s just that there is something elemental about the ‘Twilight’ books and the movies. The core story has connected to people.
[On his fans and Twilight]“The fan love from that is kind of amazing. I guess it’s so much better than everyone hating you.”
“You have little girls going, ‘I want to have your babies, and it’s like, ‘No, you don’t, seriously.’ Even I don’t want to have my babies.”
[On the fans worrying about him] “The world is a pretty cruel place, so whatever inspires people to suddenly feel this kindness, hopefully they’ll look at themselves and they’ll look at their own lives and realize, [awestruck, Eureka-moment voice] ‘I have the ability to empathize with people!’”.
“People put down Twilight fans, but yesterday I got given on the red carpet in Berlin all these books from people who are lined up in the rain and are probably judged by everyone to be crazy. I got a signed first edition of the Martin Amis book, Money; a Lawrence Ferlinghetti book; the new [Michel] Houellebecq book. All these people come up and give what they’ve been reading and found interesting. This is not giving you teddy bears!”
[Fans from Brasil in the Twiight fandom and visiting] “I receive a lot of fans letters. It’s so strange. Since I was in Harry Potter, I received more Brazilian letters than English’s. People tell me that Brazil is beautiful, who knows someday?”
[Memorable Fan Moment]”There was a thing in New York a few sets of people were like this little tiny girl who came up to me on stage somewhere and she asked me to bite her. That was probably the most intense thing but since then I mean… actually… no, something memorable happened yesterday. There was a bunch of girls who scratched scabs to look like bite marks in their necks like full on scabs, like really torn off their skin. I was just looking at that like (shocked face) and they said ‘We did it for you!’ (shocked face) Ah. Cool. Ah…thanks?”
“I get letters that say, ‘I’m going to kill myself if you don’t watch High School Musical 2 with me.”
[During Twilight promo blitz] “A mother recently gave me her baby and asked, ‘Can you please bite his head?’”
