Robert Pattinson has opened up about his experience on working on the Twilight movies, saying that he will cherish those memories for the rest of his life.

Speaking to E! News, the British actor said the experience was "amazing" with him being able to spend his early 20s working on the blockbuster franchise that made him an overnight star.

"It's all fond memories. I mean it's almost more fond the further away you get from it...it's just such a magical way to spend your 20s," the 31-year-old told the publication before heading to the 27th Annual IFP Gotham Awards in New York City on Monday evening.

He continued, "I mean it's completely crazy. I still haven't really processed it. I mean I always thought that there'd be more of a fallout—a psychological fallout years later."

Pattinson's comments come just weeks after his former girlfriend Kristen Stewart dished out about her Twilight experience, saying she has become what she is today because of the success of the series.

"Every part that I've ever played has shaped me in such a significant way..." she was quoted as saying by E! News about the Twilight films.

She added, "It's made me who I am. I know from an outsider's perspective you might have something to say about that, like in general. But I kind of view it as every other thing that I've invested in and really loved. And I'm lucky to have had that experience."

Stewart also revealed that although the experience means a lot to her, she would "never really look back at her life and go, 'What did that mean?'"

Pattinson and Stewart were an on and off couple between 2008 and 2013. However, they broke up in April 2013, just a few months after it emerged that Stewart had an affair with her Snow White and the Huntsman director, Rupert Sanders, who at the time issued a public apology for cheating on his then-wife Liberty Ross and their children.
