‘Twilight’ Star Robert Pattinson Is Ready to Put His Paparazzi Days Behind Him

Robert_Pattinson_maps-to-the-stars

Robert Pattinson has been more famous for his former relationship with Twilight co-star Kristen Stewart than he’s been for his acting career. The 28-year-old actor is trying to change all of that.

He recently shared with the Associated Press, “I’m just trying to not be in stupid gossip magazines, basically, and I think the best way to do it is never be photographed ever. As I get older, I just get more and more and more self-conscious about getting photographed. I don’t know why. I’ve done it too many times and now I feel like everyone can see through me.”

Pattinson was at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival to promote two films, The Rover and Maps to the Stars. The movies are a part of his new strategy as an actor — he’s choosing projects by the director.

“I sort of had a bit of a list,” he said. “The things I’m going to do next I’ve said yes to them before I’ve even seen a script.”

Pattinson is finding that the strategy has been working well for him

He explained, “It takes so much of the responsibility off you. I don’t like the idea of trying to make movies as, like, a vehicle. Also, I don’t really know who my audience is. I don’t know if I have an audience. Outside of Twilight, I don’t know.”

The Cosmopolis actor loves that his work in the thriller, The Rover, is requiring him to be more physical with his acting.

“I had done so many parts where I was super still – like the whole of Twilight,” Pattinson said. “It’s so restrictive. You do something where you have blood all over your face, you can’t be expected to fit into any kind of mold.”

It really has allowed his confidence to grow as an actor, but he still has a good sense of humor about his talent.

He joked, “I’m very, very good at lower expectations. Lower expectations and over-deliver.”
