In a new interview with The Improper, the Twilight star is asked to judge his own looks. His answer would likely shock fans around the globe.
"I never really considered myself attractive," the actor said. "I was always kind of gangly in school."
Seriously, folks. Robert Pattinson does not consider himself to be attractive.
In the Twilight book, Edward Cullen is described as an "unspeakably beautiful Adonis" by his eventual lover, Bella Swan.
Sounds perfect for Pattinson, right? Not so much.
"That’s the reason I didn’t want to go in for the part initially, because it’s really putting yourself out there," the New Moon star said. "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."
As for his sex appeal, Pattinson somehow doesn't see it.
"Good-looking? Noooo. 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.”
We think we speak for every woman in the world when we say: there's no need to do anything, Robert. No need at all.
