The British teenage heartthrob catapulted to success after he starred as Edward Cullen in the hit Twilight movies. And, now, the 23-year-old star has confessed that the transformation has been very difficult, and fame has ruined his life because he can no longer go outside without being dogged by teen fans.
In fact, Pattinson has even stopped trying to have a social life, claiming that he only feels safe in the vicinity of a closed film set.
"I've always been a bit of a recluse anyway so it doesn't make too much of a difference now that I actually am one," the Daily Express quoted him as having told Britain's Hello! Magazine. He added: "I've always felt more relaxed when I'm actually on set than I do in the world. I feel more relaxed there than doing interviews and talking to people I don't know."
