Robert Pattinson has admitted that he was fed up of seeing his face everywhere with 'Twilight' and that he wasn't sure he even wanted a lead role before 'Cosmopolis' came along, but now the actor reveals that he's moving away from the 'heartthrob' roles.
In his hit movies with 'The Twilight Saga', Rob became a worldwide sensation with girls falling in love with him as Edward Cullen but now claims his new roles are “all quite different”.
According to the Press Association, he said that “the next few things I'm doing are all quite different”. In a move far away from the vampire role, Rob reveals that his new parts are “actiony, and funny as well and the next one after that is pretty strange".
The movies have yet to be titled, but he teased: "It's not like a cool part.”
Laughing, he said: "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.”
But, it seems that Rob isn't trying to completely get rid of his teenage fanbase, as he admits that its quite useful for him with new roles, like as Eric Packer in David Cronenberg's movie 'Cosmopolis'.
"I've done three premieres for this and to see screaming teenagers coming in to see Cosmopolis is the craziest thing in the world," he said.
"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."
