The Twilight star says his parents set a good example for him in a relationship. Robert Pattinson and Edward do have something in common!
The Twilight star was asked by
Seventeen Espanol if he believed in true love that "lasts a lifetime like in the movies."
"Definitely, yes. It sounds cheesy, but I see it with my parents," the 26-year-old said. "My dad met my mom when she was 17 and they're still happily together."
Rob added their relationship is "rather cute" and that "most of the kids at my school had parents going through divorces. So it was great seeing my parents sticking together."
Too cute! Of course this summer Rob's world was rocked when on-again girlfriend Kristen Stewart cheated on him with her Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders.
"I believe in keeping your family and friends close, because they'll treat you the same no matter what," Rob told the magazine. "Real relationships are not affected by whatever happens in life. Knowing that you'll always keep something special no matter what happens is something that has made an impact in my life. That's one of the biggest lessons I've received in life."
Glad that he is such an optimist!
