Rob recently sat down with MTV Radio to talk about Chris Weitz, the hardest New Moon scenes to shoot, and the most romantic thing he’s ever done. Here’s a quick excerpt:
MTV: Tell us about working with Chris Weitz. What were your thoughts when you first received his now-famous “orientation guide”?
Robert Pattinson: When he gave that out, it was such [a surprise]; I mean, I’d never had that from any director. It was 40, 50 pages long, this thing. And this is in addition to a bunch of letters and e-mails and everything [he had sent the cast], trying to show that he’s on the same page as us and he’s completely with us in making the film. And he didn’t falter from that attitude throughout the whole movie. It probably sounds ridiculous how much praise this guy gets. I was just with his wife and him in Japan, and she was even sick of it! But he is like a saint. He’s one of the best people I’ve ever met, let alone directors. I think in a lot of ways that shows in the movie — it’s got a lot of heart.
