Robert Pattinson sat in the hot seat this morning on SiriusXM鈥檚 Howard Stern Show, talking about everything from why he almost got fired from Twilight to how he鈥檚 鈥渒ind of鈥 engaged to UK singer FKA twigs.

Pattinson reportedly proposed in early 2015, but neither he nor FKA twigs has ever talked about it publicly. So on Tuesday, Stern asked Pattinson to confirm that he was, in fact, engaged to his girlfriend of three years. Pattinson鈥檚 response? 鈥淜ind of.鈥 The radio host howled back, 鈥淜ind of?! Wait 鈥檛il she hears this!鈥

Pattinson said in the interview that he likes to keep his private life private, but that it can have its own challenges. He鈥檚 been working on 鈥渃reating a big boundary between鈥 himself and the public, but admitted that 鈥渢hen it makes it difficult for your actual relationship.鈥 He did say, though, that FKA twigs is 鈥渁mazing鈥 and 鈥渟uper talented.鈥

Elsewhere in the interview, he explained what happened on the set of Twilight all those years ago that led to his near-dismissal. 鈥淣ow the whole series is known as a brooding thing, but I remember the producers giving me the book and every single instance where my character smiled, they鈥檇 highlight,鈥 he told Stern.

鈥淚 was very serious. I thought at the time 鈥 I was 21 鈥 if you were going into a relationship with someone, the way you could make it really intense was if you could barely talk to each other, you could barely touch each other, incredibly serious all the time,鈥 he said. 鈥淓veryone was like, 鈥楴o, it should be happy and having fun! That鈥檚 what people want!'鈥

Eventually, his agents had to step in and tell him, 鈥淵ou have to do the opposite of what you鈥檙e doing now or you鈥檙e going to get fired today.鈥 That changed Pattinson鈥檚 tune.
