Robert Pattinson is trying desperately to lose his heartthrob image
One mention of Robert Pattinson’s name and girls the world over swoon, but not for much longer, if the man himself is to get his way.
Pattinson has revealed that he is trying desperately to move away from his current heartthrob persona by picking some strange future movie roles.
The actor, who currently stars in Cosmopolis, is yet to announce his next two film projects but has revealed that one is ‘actiony and funny as well, and the next one after that is pretty strange.’
He told The Press Association: ‘It’s not like a cool part. He’s a really strange person and a bit of a simpleton, which I haven’t really done before… apart from in my real life.’
The star also admitted that his Twilight star status does have its positive points, especially when it comes to enticing audiences to see his new movie, Cosmopolis.
He said: ‘I’ve done three premieres for this and to see screaming teenagers coming in to see Cosmopolis is the craziest thing in the world.
‘One of the most interesting things about it I think is the fact that it’s making two audiences collide.
‘And if you get one out of every 500 people to get into Cronenberg movies who wasn’t before then it’s great.’
