Pattinson recently spoke about his thoughts on the ‘Twilight’ series, and how he thinks it’s funny that so many people look at his character, Edward, as a hero. Pattinson explained that it’s usually Kristen Stewart’s character, Bella, that is saving him.
“Bella ends up saving Edward [in ‘New Moon’] as she does in every single one of the books.” Pattinson laughs, “So it’s really funny how everyone looks at Edward as the hero, and he’s been continually saved by the damsel in distress.”
Pattinson also commented saying that he thinks his character realizes this in ‘New Moon’ and therefor tries to catch up with Jacob in ‘Eclipse’. “He’s accepted being part of the world and he needs to catch up to Jacob.” Pattinson explained.
