Twilight’s Jackson Rathbone dishes to Saturday Night Magazine

By Kim Palacios

hollywoodnews.com: In an interview for the June 2010 issue, Twilight’s Jackson Rathbone dished to Saturday Night Magazine. The college-focused reader featured an easygoing conversation with the actor, in which he discussed his heros, strange encounters with fans, his upcoming movies and his six tattoos.

First in line was talk of his upcoming film, “The Last Airbender”, which releases on July 2nd, just two days after “Eclipse”. Jackson plays a young warrior who unwittingly finds himself on a quest to save the world. Said Jackson of the experience, “…that’s one of the really cool things about being an actor: you get paid to learn kung fu!”

When asked about some of his heros, he named Johnny Depp as a modern idol. “I’m just finishing [his] catalogue. I love his style of acting, it’s very organic and down to earth and then it’s also very fantastical at the same time.” His other actor picks were consistent in a single characteristic—their charismatic presence. “Clint Eastwood’s the man,” he continued. “And Jack Nicholson, I love his style.”

Of course, no current interview of the star would be complete without a discussion of Twilight. Jackson spoke about working on the first two films (read the article for a particularly funny anecdote about a fan encounter in “New Moon”. He also promised we’d see more Jasper in “Eclipse”: “Yes, we get to see Jasper back when he was a human which was back in the Civil War. So I got to ride a horse again – I grew up riding so it was fun to get back to that.”
