Poor dazzling, dumb Robert Pattinson. The British actor has revealed that he had no idea what he was getting into when he agreed to play a handsome, thoughtful, virginal vampire alongside Kristen Stewart in the Twilight movie series. In next month’s cover story in AnOther Man magazine, RPattz reveals that he thought the flick would be “something really small.” Oops!
“It’s strange because even though the figures show that the books were successful and sold millions of copies, you couldn’t even buy them in London,” reveals the hottest man alive. “I tried a couple of bookshops and they weren’t available. Hardly anyone I knew had read them apart from one girl, a friend of my sister. I had no idea at all. I’d seen Kristen Stewart in Into the Wild and some of the director Catherine Hardwicke’s other films, and that’s all I thought it was, something really small.”
And, well, we all know how that turned out. Twilight is huge, 1.6 gazillion teenage girls want Rob to touch their lady parts (poor guy), and the rest is history. Amazingly, he has yet to turn into a fame hungry attention whore (aka Lindsay Lohan Syndrome), choosing instead to shun the spotlight. “I don’t find any particular pleasure in being an attention-seeker,” says Rob. Too bad his legions of screaming, grabby fans don’t seem to care about his desire to disappear. [via DazedDigital]
