Robert Pattinson finds ‘perfect man’ role in Twilight embarrassingMay 18th, 2009 - 12:43 pm ICT by ANI
New Delhi, May 18 (ANI): Robert Pattinson finds it embarrassing to portray Edward Cullen in the hit film ‘Twilight’ because he feels that the character is nothing less than a perfect man, unlike him.
Despite an overwhelming fan following, the 22-year-old star said that he did not feel he was attractive enough to play the handsome vampire.
The Brit further revealed that he felt like an “arrogant p***k” when he went for the audition, and could only imagine flawless High School Musical star Zac Efron doing the role, reports the China Daily.
He said: “The Edward in the book is like an enigma of everything that’s perfect about a man. It’s like, ‘He walked into a room and it hurts to see how beautiful he is.’ It’s just kind of embarrassing.”
He added: “I just couldn’t figure out a way to act perfect. I felt like an idiot going into the audition - even having the gall to go in means you’re a bit of an arrogant p***k. Who could possibly play it apart from Zac Efron?”
Pattinson also said that he had expected the initial rejection by the fans of the book series.
He told Look magazine: “‘Twilight’ fans are very loyal to the book and to the author Stephanie Meyer. And I got a 100 per cent negative reception when I got cast. I kind of expected it, though.” (ANI)
