We all know Robert Pattinson is real humble and is all awkward with all these sudden fame and attention. But it was, what, almost two years now since Twilight had hit the theaters. And he had already thousands of fans waiting out for any information of him whether on the net or on tv, and some stalking him all over the country. Don't you think our Rob knows by now? Uh-oh. Based from the (recent) interview he got for TheImproper
, he still sees himself as the regular guy.
Pattinson--who now attracts hordes of screaming girls everywhere he goes--doesn't understand his appeal. "I never really considered myself attractive," says Rob, 23. "I was always kind of gangly in school."
Pattinson admits he was intimidated when he walked in to audition for the part and tried hard to focus more on Edward's deep emotional connection to Bella rather than his dazzling appearance. In fact, Rob says he almost skipped the audition because he was unsure he could pull off the physicality required of the stunningly handsome Edward character.
"That’s the reason I didn’t want to go in for the part initially, because it’s really putting yourself out there," Pattinson explains. "Going in for the audition, I felt like a bit of an idiot. I felt prejudged by anyone who turned up to the casting. I just thought even having the gall to go in means you’re a bit of an arrogant prick."
"Good-looking? Noooo,” he says. "Before I go out to face a crowd, I stare and stare at myself in the mirror until I have to tell myself to stop staring, since there’s nothing I can do.” Is it because he's concerned about not living up to fans' high expectations? "Yes."
But don't expect Rob to re-watch his hit film anytime soon.
"I don't really like watching my stuff," he says. "It makes me feel sick. You imagine you look a certain way in your head, and when it looks even the slightest bit different from what you imagine, you go, 'Rubbish!'
Sweet. charming and down-to-earth... Rob makes himself more endearing to fans saying these stuff. We have enough of other A-list actors who are full of themselves. Rob is really something...:)
