Robert Pattinson may have graduated from “Twilight” to increasingly out-there auteur projects, but that doesn’t mean he’d rule out a return to the franchise that made him a star. Speaking to Variety from TIFF, where he’s premiering “High Life” alongside Claire Denis, the actor was asked about the vampiric YA series he starred in alongside Kristen Stewart — and, whether joking or not, appeared enthusiastic about a potential reunion.

“Whenever anyone says [‘Twilight’]’s their guilty pleasure, it’s like, you say guilty, what you really mean is just pleasure,” he said. “The amount of time I’ve spent moisturizing, I am ready to play 17 at a moment’s notice. Ready!”

Pattinson also discussed his transition to director-driven projects like “Good Time,” “The Lost City of Z,” and “The Childhood of a Leader,” calling them “just the stuff that appeals to me…Pretty much everything I’ve done are these massive processes…I’m just hoping that these things happen and there’s ton of circumstances that come into play.”
