'Twilight' director hopes fame won't change Robert Pattinson

Robert Pattinson is swamped by fans

Chris Weitz, who directed "New Moon," worries that the "Twilight" actors won't be able to handle the pressures of fame and fortune, especially as the franchise comes to a close.

“For the three leads, they’re going to need to handle this last tsunami of publicity and distinguish themselves in other films.”

“I want to see them succeed,” Chris told the Philippine Daily Inquirer. “I want to see them retain their essential humanity. I like them very much. What I also wish for them are happy lives that aren’t impinged on too much by the downside of the great things that have happened to them.”

"Breaking Dawn, Part 1" is to be released in November and "Part 2" will be released next year. Both films were directed by Bill Condon.
