Every few years Twilight experiences something of a renaissance on the internet, reminding people why it inspired such a mania in its prime. The film turned 10 in 2018 and the cast was asked about the impact it had had on their lives and careers. Entertainment Tonight asked Pattinson what he would say to his younger self when he first walked on the set, and although the Tenet actor was a vocal critic of the series from time to time, he had good things to say about the film, who started his career.
“I don’t know, just have fun,” he replied. “The whole ride was really great. I was just incredibly lucky in my career and in my life. I’m really grateful for everything.” When asked whether or not she kept in touch with the cast – “a little” – Stewart thought about the passage of time and what a wild thing Twilight was in her life. “Yes, it was a long time ago,” she said. “I don’t know, it’s funny, I’ve lived in the same neighborhood for 10 years too and I thought about it the other day and I thought oh god it wasn’t that crowded ten years ago and I thought that’s bizarre, that So, the same thing just because … certain things, certain memories will be around you forever. So it will never be normal to say that something was like that a long time ago, and I feel that way too. “
