Robert Pattinson skyrocketed to fame with his role as Edward Cullen in the Twilight movies, but the actor reveals in a new interview that it was never his goal to become famous.

After being asked in October’s Cosmopolitan Germany how he didn’t “go crazy from the hysteria that came with Twilight,” Pattinson explains, “Maybe because I never wanted to become famous… The more famous I became, the more I wanted to hide out. The hype was irritating to me.” He further says, “It’s a lot better now. The Twilight fans got older, and it’s more relaxed now.”

Pattinson also recalls the moment he realized he was famous and a celebrity. “It was six months before the second Twilight movie came out,” says Pattinson before relating how he was invited to a hot L.A. club, and “the doorman just looked at me and said, ‘It’s OK, you can go in.’ I was like ‘What?’ Up until then I never was let into clubs that easily.”

Of course there’s also a downside to his fame. “I’m not the type who likes to draw attention to myself, but I can’t really walk around without getting recognized,” divulges Pattinson. “If people want to say a quick ‘hello,’ that’s fine, but every second person wants to take a selfie. That means I always have to be in a good mood.”
