Even though Robert Pattinson broke through as a big star with the romantic role of Edward Cullen in the wildly popular Twilight movie series, based on the bestselling books, the actor keeps his real love life under wraps most of the time. Pattinson, who has since starred in other romantic films, often declines to discuss his own personal love life, despite currently being in a reportedly hot and heavy relationship with FKA Twigs. But every so often, a little nugget of wisdom about love or women slips out from his mouth in an interview. Let's take a look back at some of Robert Pattinson's best quotes about love.
“I can’t say I prefer blondes, brunettes or redheads. I like emotion and elegance. Even expensive clothes do not guarantee a good look. You must be yourself above all!” he said in an interview with a French magazine Madame Figaro back in 2011.
On His (Past) Woman
“She’s a unique girl,” said Pattinson of Kristen Stewart to Harper’s Bazaar back in 2009. “You really don’t meet many people like Kristen.”
On Admiring Tough Women
“Kristen doesn’t take any slack,” Pattinson said in the same Harper’s Bazaar piece. “She sticks to her guns — and that’s difficult to do.” Aww! Reading this almost makes us miss them as a couple… almost.
On Admiring Work Ethic In Women
“Kristen’s a really great actress. I really like working with her, and she’s very intense about things, and she’ll go just as far as anyone else will want to go with it. If you want to go as deep as possible, into any form of material, she’s more than willing to go there,” he said to Seventeen around the time when New Moon was coming out.
On Not Trash Talking His Ex
When asked by a New York Times reporter in 2012 if his fallout with Kristen Stewart after her affair was comparable to that of Princess Diana and Prince Charles, Pattinson simply said, ”No, I wouldn’t really go that far.” He left it at that. Classy move!
On Being In Love
“I spent a long time trying to figure out how to play [Edward’s part] without making a fool out of myself. The whole book is written from Bella’s perspective and she’s in love with him. I mean, the guy can be anybody — he could be an alien — and you see past everything if you’re in love with someone,” he said in an interview with Seventeen.
On Not Liking Typical Dates
“If I go and try to watch a movie by myself I’ll be completely transfixed the whole time, concentrating one hundred percent. But if I’m with another person on a date or something, within two minutes I’ll be like ‘This is rubbish, this is rubbish. We should leave and do something else.’ I don’t really know why,” Pattinson spilled to Seventeen in that same interview.
