Robert Pattinson is "embarrassed" to admit he's an actor.
The British star - who plays hunky vampire Edward Cullen in the recent Twilight film and its upcoming sequel New Moon (it has a tentative release date of November 20, 2009) - admits he lies about his profession in case people think he's cheesy.
Pattinson explains, "Acting is something I'm very serious about, and that's why I chose it
"[But] I'm still embarrassed to say I'm an actor because it's kinda cheesy, so I prefer to say I do something else.
"I don't like the word 'acting'. I prefer the word 'creating,' because I want to build a character with an idea that turns into something that people will remember.
"In every job that I've done, I've put something of my life into it, I try to add my life into the movie. Every period of my life in which I've played a different character, I've been a different person."
