Sydney (ANI): Twilight made actor Robert Pattinson famous overnight, but his star status is not coming handy in finding him a date. While talking about the global hysteria surrounding his name, he said: “I just don't take any of it seriously. It's just a job and while it's a job I love, girls scream out for Edward, not Robert. I still can't get a date." He also mentioned that he doesn"t know how to react to the sudden fan following, reports The Sydney Morning Herald.
"To be honest, I still don't really understand what's going on. Like yesterday, I was having lunch down the road. We were in this place for a couple of hours and suddenly there was like 400 people outside on the street. It was just so nuts and it's like that all the time now. When the second one comes out, then I'll see how I am. Mostly I can ignore things to quite a big extent and kind of pretend they''re not really happening," he said.
Pattinson, who is also a good singer, added that he regrets performing two songs in Twilight. "When the first film came out I felt like a complete tosser," he says. He added: "It looked like I was trying to be cool or something, like Eminem. You know, be in a movie and then do a song for the soundtrack. But I didn't look cool, I just looked ridiculous."
