There's been all this madness following you in America on the promotional tour for Twilight. Did you find that easy or hard to deal with?
I'm really not good at it. Some people are great at it. It's like the other side of the job. I can't believe I have to do it. It makes it easier because I'm really proud of the movie and I'm a fan of the book as well. So it's weird to see people mainly my age flipping out over Rob [Pattinson] walking into the room. He shifts in his seat and they all just go crazy. It's a little daunting.
How do you deal with that? Do you take the mickey out of Robert all the time for the reaction he gets?
Oh my god. All the time. Constantly. It's like, 'Rob. Touch your hair again'.
Your first scene together is almost quite comical. Robert Pattinson almost looks pained trying to control his feelings for you. Did that make you laugh?
It's so funny. We thought we were being so intense and serious. We watched the film and everyone was laughing. It was like, 'Oh my god. This is actually quite funny'. We didn't picture it like that at all.
Your character, Bella Swan, is very intense when she first arrives and very moody. How did you get into character?
Yeah. She's sort of happy being solitary. She doesn't intentionally try to push people away. I think sometimes when you're quiet and shy, you just come across pensive. I can fully relate to that. People are always asking me what's wrong and I'm like, 'Wow. Nothing. Absolutely nothing is wrong'. It's weird.
