Robert Pattinson: I would die for true love - it's what life is about
Edward is famously chivalrous and protective of true love Bella in the vampire franchise - and it would seem some of his romantic ideals have been rubbing off on Pattinson.
In an interview with Berlingske TV, the British heartthrob said he would be willing to die for true love, saying he believes anyone else truly in love would do the same.
'If you're in love with anyone, I think the majority of people would say, "If I have to die for this person, I will." I mean, you don't really love someone if you're like, "No. Just let them die",' Pattinson said.
The actor, who is dating on-screen love Kristen Stewart in real life, also went on to defend Edward's old fashioned ideals, saying he agrees with his attitude of simply wanting to marry the woman he loves.
'Everyone is always telling me that Edward is kind of old-fashioned, but I always see him as fairly normal. I mean, he just knows what he wants,' he added.
The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1 sees Edward and Bella tying the knot, before heading off on a steamy honeymoon.
Pattinson said: 'We shot a bunch of sex scenes in a row just filming our faces having orgasms,' describing it as the 'most embarrassing thing I've ever had to do'.
aww honey, that's so sweet, but you don't have to die for me :P
