Robert Pattinson recently spoke with British fashion magazine AnOther Man claiming that he’s not an attention seeker and he doesn’t want to be an actor for the sake of it. The actor talked briefly about his role as Edward Cullen in the ‘Twilight’ series saying that he couldn’t even find a copy of the best-seller in London to read before his audition.
“It’s strange because even though the figures show that the books were successful and sold millions of copies, you couldn’t even buy them in London,” he claims. “I tried a couple of bookshops and they weren’t available. Hardly anyone I knew had read them apart from one girl, a friend of my sister.”
Pattinson also added, “I don’t think even the production company had any idea the extent of the success they had on their hands until the weekend of its release.”
Be sure to catch ‘New Moon’ the sequel to ‘Twilight’ in theaters on November 20th.
