Robert and Jennifer, on him playing Batman: “I think you’d be a great Batman. An awesome Batman,” Jennifer said, to which Robert responded, “You would be as well.” Jennifer responded, “I could be Batman. Why not? I think as an actor, it would be fun to explore.”
Jennifer, on her first reaction to seeing Hustlers: “When I first saw the movie, I was sick to my stomach. I was like, ‘Oh, my God, what are they doing!’”
Robert, on Twilight: “I mean with ‘Twilight,’ it wasn’t really an established thing. To me, Catherine Hardwicke, who directed it, had done ‘Thirteen’ and ‘Lords of Dogtown.’ They were little movies, and they were kind of hardcore. Kristen [Stewart] was in stuff as well; she’d been in ‘Into the Wild’ and some other things. And it was very indie […] I mean it’s a weird story, ‘Twilight.’ It’s strange how people responded. I guess the books, they are very romantic, but at the same time, it’s not like ‘The Notebook’ romantic. ‘Twilight’ is about this guy who finds the one girl he wants to be with, and also wants to eat her. Well, not eat — drink her blood or whatever. I thought it was a strange story. Even the way I promoted it, I was very open about how strange I thought it was when I was doing it. Then afterward, I didn’t make a conscious decision at all to do smaller things. I’ve just kept doing what I wanted to do in the first place.”
