Sorry Twi-hards, you won't be hearing wedding bells for lovebirds Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart - at least, not yet.
In a new interview with BlackBook magazine, 26-year-old British star Pattinson tackles the persistent rumour that he and his Twilight co-star Stewart, 22, may be revving up to head down the aisle.
"There was a magazine, with these pictures, saying I was getting married. No one ever knows what is true or what isn't," Pattinson says in BlackBook's September issue. "Even my own mum called to ask me if it was true. It's not. At least, not yet."
A recent report in OK! magazine boomed that the couple are set to marry in the "Wedding of the Year!", followed by a "multi-continent honeymoon to celebrate their nuptials".
Pattinson also laments that the media often twists his words.
"You try to say things in the perfect way but you know unless you say something stupid, from which people will make you look like a d***, you're not going to have sound bites," he says. "And if you don't say anything stupid, someone's going to make something up anyways."
The actor, who stars in upcoming David Cronenberg-directed movie Cosmopolis, discusses his thrill of scandals, and reveals that he's also tried his hand at kick-starting some rumours of his own.
He apparently told Entertainment Tonight that there was a rather sordid-sounding sex scene deleted from Twilight.
"And it didn't even get picked up," he says. "I thought, 'What the f**k? I'm giving you this stuff!"
During the confab, Pattinson reveals that he's quit smoking with the help of electronic cigarettes and jokes about staying in shape.
"I had to be shirtless for a photo shoot, so I asked a nutritionist what's a diet in which you can still drink as much as you want. She said a liquid diet," he shares.
"I was so impressed with myself yesterday," he adds, "I took a pee that was four minutes long."
The actor also talks about Cosmopolis, in which he plays Eric Parker, a billionaire whose world falls apart as he is chauffeured around Manhattan. The movie premiered in May at the Cannes Film Festival.
"I lost my mind," Pattinson says of the film's premiere. "I was preparing myself to fight with 1,500 people. I was so amped up. I was just kind of running around with my pants down and my shoelaces untied and, amazingly, not falling. Most people get 15 years of doing movies nobody sees. Now I'm at Cannes."
And the sudden onset of fame following the release of the Twilight movies heralded some big changes for the actor.
"My circle of friends narrowed pretty quickly, I like to be the parasite, not the other way around," he quips. "I never go anywhere. I don't even know where 'anywhere' is."
Another admission? He's a terrible driver.
"I learned by people crashing into me," he explains. "The first time anyone said anything about my being famous was when I tried to buy a car a few years ago. It was an '89 BMW convertible for $1,000 I found on Craigslist.
"I went out to the hills to take it on a test drive and, of course, almost crashed. A few days later I went back to pick it up. I had said I was an actor and the guy had looked me up. When I went back, he said,'Dude, do you realise you're #2 on IMDB?' I thought, 'Sh*t, now I can't ask for the 200 bucks off.'"
