Robert Pattinson: ‘New Moon Is Incredibly Depressing’

Robert Pattinson has put a downer on the excitement surrounding the Twilight sequel New Moon, describing the storyline as “incredibly depressing”.

The Brit born star – who is currently on location in British Columbia filming scenes for the hotly anticipated sequel – says that the second instalment is less about love and more about loss, which he doesn’t believe will appeal to fans.

Rob tells Reuters, “The book of New Moon, the majority of it is incredibly depressing.

“Obviously Twilight was about finding first love and the difficulties of that, but New Moon is really about loss and reconciliation, but the reconciliation isn’t completely full.

“It’s a strange story to have for a market that, I guess, wants to see a love story.”

Meanwhile Rob, who shares similar brooding qualities with his character Edward Cullen, says that he likes to keep himself to himself: “I like any job where you can just shut yourself away from everybody.”
