Robert Pattinson Is Scared Of Acting Because Of Twilight
Robert Pattinson finds taking on work outside of the ‘Twilight’ franchise “scary”.
The actor – who plays vampire Edward Cullen in the hit movie series – says that it is more difficult to take on new roles now that he is so famous because there are so many things to consider.
He explained: “You get offered stuff that you would never dream of getting offered before, but that’s also scary. You don’t have to audition for anything. But I don’t want to do a movie just so it gets made. You have to question yourself a lot more. “Before ‘Twilight,’ I did any movie that I got offered, and you’d try and make the best of it afterwards. “But now, you’re expected to come into the movie and provide not only economic viability, but also a performance as well. You can’t just mess around. People are like, ‘We’re employing you to be here, as a star and an actor.’ It’s difficult, and it’s scary.”
After recently working on the third ‘Twilight’ movie, ‘Eclipse’, Robert is looking forward to taking on some radically different projects before getting to work on fourth instalment ‘Breaking Dawn’.
He added to MTV Radio: “I think the tentative time for ‘Breaking Dawn’ is fall next year. Depending on how things go, I’m doing a movie called ‘Bel Ami’ in February, an adaptation to a Guy de Maupassant novel. And I’m doing – I hope – a Western with Rachel Weisz and Hugh Jackman called ‘Unbound Captives’ sometime around there as well. They’ve got to try and juggle things around until everybody’s schedules work.”
