Middle-class depression & bed stills

"To get a modern image of a vampire, Pattinson initially watched movies such as "Interview With the Vampire" and "Blade". But he really discovered who Edward was by researching outcast roles not involving the undead. "Rebel Without a Cause" was a big influence on the first ["Twilight" film] -- it influenced the hairdo and stuff", Pattinson says, laughing. "In lots of ways, it has a very similar character arc: An everyday girl brings this relatively strange individual out of his slump."A James Dean type -- that is, Pattinson -- always attracts teenage girls in flocks. "It's like The Birds, with teenage girls," says "New Moon" director Chris Weitz. "You turn around, and there would be a line of girls standing there."
And there's the fact that many haven't yet separated Pattinson the actor from Edward the vampire. "Right at the beginning, everyone just called me Edward", he says. "I don't really mind either way. There's something about that character that, for some reason, has sparked an interest in massive degrees in so many different people."If you want to compete with your own character, you have to really fight. I don't know if I could be bothered to fight", he says, chuckling again. "I just let it go by." Source:

"An apathetic and uninteresting young Brit, played by Robert Pattinson (Cedric Diggory of the Harry Potter series), recruits a Canadian self-help guru to assist him with sorting out his relatively trivial personal issues in "How to Be", a taxing reminder that middle-class depression ranks among cinema's least engaging topics. Winner of Slamdance's special jury honorable mention, this pic represents the other side of the "Control" coin, depicting the mopey adolescent despair of a wannabe rocker who lacks any sign of Ian Curtis' musical talent".
