MTV Preps for Their Live Interview w/ Rob by Counting Down Their Top 5 Rob MomentsMar 14th, 2011 | By Stefanie | Category: Fandom, Featured Articles, Movie News, Videos
In anticipation of Rob’s live interview with Josh Horowitz on Friday everyday this week MTV is looking back on some of their favorite moments they’ve had with Rob. Today’s #5 moment is Rob and Kristen’s first interview with MTV back when they were filming Twilight. Check out the video, which includes an intro from Josh, below!
It was early April 2008, and “Twilight” hadn’t yet become a global box-office phenomenon and set off an epidemic of pop-culture copycats seeking to suck up some of the franchise’s supernatural lifeblood. Back then, when Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart were just two up-and-coming actors making a movie for an independent studio, MTV News traveled to the film’s Portland, Oregon, set to find out just what was happening with this gothic-tinged love story everyone seemed to be buzzing about.
The duo were alternately shy and unguarded, jokey and awkward, and generally far different than they are these days, with the press invading every aspect of their personal and professional lives. That’s why, even years later, our first-ever “Twilight” interview remains one of our favorite RPattz moments. And as we count down the days until “MTV First: Robert Pattinson” airs next Friday at 8:56 p.m. ET, we hauled the footage from our vaults.
