You’ve seen the breathtaking new pictures from Rob Pattinson’s upcoming Vanity Fair photospread, now it’s time to hear what he has to say about his crazy, new life and those pesky Robsten rumors.

On his newfound fame:

“I’m trying not to drown. I guess I’m not the type of guy cut out to do a franchise. I’m not much of a crowd person.”

On the Kristen Stewart rumors:

“It doesn’t make any difference what you say [to the tabloids]. I’ve literally been across the country [from Kristen], and it’s like ‘Oh, they were on secret dates!’ It’s like ‘Where? I can’t get out of my hotel room!’ ”

On his admiration for K-Stew:

“I think she’s the best young actress around. She’s influenced how I’ve done all the Twilight stuff. It’s quite nice to have someone who is genuinely indifferent to the whole spectacle of everything.”

On his audition for Twilight:

“I was still in the mode thinking, I’ve got to make this really, really serious. This is not just a sexy thing…. I was slamming my head against the wall and kind of going nuts.” He was sure he had made a complete ass of himself. “I remember calling my parents and saying, ‘That’s it. I’m not doing this anymore.’ And then hearing, ‘O.K., fine,’ which was not the answer I wanted to hear at all.”
