Robert Pattinsonwas a complete unknown when he signed on to play Edward Cullen, Twilight’s melancholy bloodsucker in the thrall of Bella Swan, the average girl from Forks.

In the four years since, he has become a household name to Twilight fans the world over. In Beverly Hills this morning, he sat down to talk about how the franchise changed his life and the upcoming final installment, Breaking Dawn – Part 2.

And what’s the main difference between life before and after Twilight?

“I’m drinking vodka instead of beer,” laughed Pattinson. “Try to get a six pack as early as possible and you’ll be a much more successful actor.”

In Breaking Dawn – Part 2, Pattinson and Kristen Stewart play parents to Renesmee, their supernatural love child on which the film’s plot turns. Pattinson hasn’t played a father before but relished the chance to work with his little costar.

“Working with a baby is great. Put a baby in every scene,” he smiled. “You could put a dog in a scene, everyone’s going to be better. And if they’re not better, just shoot the dog.”

Watch what else he had to say above, and watch the trailer below. Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 hits theaters Nov. 16.
