If you were anywhere near Sydney’s State Theatre on Saturday night you might have been mistaken for thinking we were back in the times of Beatlemania, as hundreds of fans lined the streets to catch a glimpse of the British heartthrob.
In an MTV exclusive, we quizzed the former Twilight star on what he thinks of his adoring fans that came out to see him ahead of the Australian premiere of his new film The Rover for the Sydney Film Festival.
“They’re really sweet,” he blushed as they hysterically screamed behind him.
Before he hit the red carpet the 28-year-old generously spent around forty-five minutes chatting to his biggest supporters, some of whom had been patiently waiting on the street since 6am.
The humble and softly-spoken actor seems to be going from strength to strength with a slew of hard-hitting films coming out over the next year; a definite departure from his star-making role in The Twilight Saga.
If he wasn’t blessed enough with some fine acting chops and a face that could turn a house-wife into a bumbling mess, he’s also got an impressive set of pipes, but says he’s unfortunately not releasing any new music.
“No, not in the foreseeable future,” he said.
If you’re aching to hear him sing you can catch him in The Rover hilariously singing along to a Keri Hilson song, one of the many memorable moments as he delivers a brilliant performance as Rey alongside Aussie great, Guy Pearce.
