Cedric Diggory would never do such a thing

If you thought Robert Pattinson was a goody-two-shoes at school, you couldn't be more wrong – because it turns out the Twilight star was actually expelled from his private school back in the day.

Speaking on The Howard Stern Show, Rob revealed that he was 'terrible' as a teenager, and let slip the never-before-revealed reason he was kicked out.

'I've never actually said this before... I was stealing porno magazines and selling them at school,' he revealed.


'No one knew at all what to do with them though... I'd sell them for a lot of money. I used to go in [to the shop] and take, like, one or two, and then put them in my bag.

'I was in my school uniform when I was doing it, and it was kind of risky.'

Clearly the thrill took over, as Rob's thieving habit only got worse. 'At the end, I got so cocky that I would take the entire rack.'

When he was finally caught, the shop owner gave Rob the choice whether his parents or the police were called. 'I was like, "Don't call the cops, call my parents," and I was trying to make up a lie of where I lived and blah blah blah. I was terrible,' he said.

Eventually the owner told the school, Rob's friends all snitched him out and, lo and behold, he was expelled.

Well, we are horrified. Fifty points from Hufflepuff.
