Robert Pattinson: Cosmopolis gave me confidence boost

The Twilight actor has revealed that he used to suffer from pre-movie nerves and worried about whether or not he was good enough

The Twilight actor has revealed that he used to suffer from pre-movie nerves and worried about whether or not he was good enough.

Robert Pattinson opened up on his lack if confidence in an interview about his new film Cosmopolis, directed by David Cronenberg.

‘Filming Cosmopolis with Cronenberg changed something in me. It gave me balls,’ he told Premiere magazine, adding that Cosmopolis is one of the only films he has actually watched himself in.

‘Before, I spent my time doubting myself. As soon as I read a script that I liked, I was working myself up, asking myself if I was good enough. Now, I tell myself: ‘F*** it! If they want to hire you, go!’

‘I’m going through a phase where I’m trying to determine what I can accomplish or not as an actor. It’s even more complex when you know you have a past, even though people like David don’t pay any attention to it.’

And by ‘past’ he was referring to his hugely successful role of Edward Cullen in the Twilight films where he met girlfriend Kristen Stewart.

Robert Pattinson went on to talk about the Twilight movies: ‘I can’t believe there’s still one more to come. I’m not the same as I was at the beginning. First, I’m older. When I have to go to the make-up chair, I see all those wrinkles…I filled out too.’

‘I’ve always wanted to make good movies. But before, I was more the type to get drunk and say, ‘If people don’t like me, they can go f*** themselves!’

Well that’s us told…
