Robert Pattinson has joked he's nervous about Twilight ending due to the "fragile economy".

The British actor and his co-stars Kristen Stewart, Taylor Lautner, Ashley Greene and Kellan Lutz shot to worldwide recognition when the first movie hit screens in 2008. They are gearing up for the release of the final instalment, Breaking Dawn - Part 2, next month and have reflected on how their lives will changes once the franchise is done.

"It's slightly worrying," Robert joked to ET. "It's a fragile economy at the moment."

Robert can remember how excited he felt when he first won the part of vampire Edward Cullen. As each subsequent release came out, he began to worry about the scale of his fame.

"I felt a lot more free in the first one, it felt quite dangerous," he recalled. "This one, you know your fate is still going to be at the front of it, but you have a lot less control than the beginning so it's kind of scary."

Kristen also took part in the interview. She has a slightly different take on the films, explaining she has thrived on the anxiety she's felt to do a good job.

"It makes it incredibly worth it," she said. "As soon as you don't have that pressure, what are you doing it for?"

The pair are a couple in real life, although they experienced problems earlier this year after Kristen admitted being unfaithful with married film director Rupert Sanders.

Kristen portrays Bella Swan in the series, who is Edward's partner. In the final instalment Bella has become a vampire, something Kristen found daunting. She was particularly worried about shooting love scenes.

"You're supposed to have this mind-blowing, inhuman experience. How do you do that?" she said.
