Could there be too much to know about Robert Pattinson?

Consider what he said Thursday at Comic-Con while promoting Breaking Dawn: Part 2.

When questioned, he and Kristen Stewart were mum on whether or not they've been reading E.L. James's sex-filled bestseller, 50 Shades of Grey – but the Twilight actor knows what he would do if the risqué read was right in front of him.

"I would just sit there and lick the pages," Pattinson, 26, told MTV's Josh Horowitz with a laugh on Thursday during an interview at the fest in San Diego, adding, "What are we live on?" – as he realized his silly response would gain attention.



Stewart, 22, on the other hand, was less upbeat about the topic.

When asked if she reads the novel in a book club with Pattinson and fellow Twilight star Taylor Lautner, she said simply, "That would be disgusting."



While no mention of the pair's off-screen romance came into question, Pattinson did address smooching his on- and off-screen love.

"She always just kissed me and I'd always be like –," Pattinson said, holding up his head and puckering his lips, while referring to winning best kiss with Stewart in Breaking Dawn: Part 1 at the recent MTV Movie Awards. "I just receive. I just receive pecks."
