Robert Pattinson at the End of His ‘Twilight’ “Inspiration”: “Playing the same part for a while, you just run out of ideas”

Although Robert Pattinson has gained international fame with his portrayal of vampire Edward Cullen in the Twilight franchise, the 26-year-old says he is more than ready to put the part behind him.

In an interview with ShortList, Pattinson admits that “playing the same part for a while, you just run out of ideas.  You feel kind of useless, you don’t know what to do anymore.”

The fifth and final film, Breaking Dawn: Part Two, will be released in November, and it seems like that end date can’t come soon enough for the British actor. 

Pattinson said, “I’m not trying to get away from it.  You’re screwing yourself, you’re saying you think your work is sh*t if you try and get away from it.  And I never thought it was.  But I kind of got to the end of my inspiration.  You get to the point where you’re like, ‘I don’t want to do a film for a teen audience anymore.’”
