Robert Pattinson: “I Don’t Think About” Fans When Choosing Roles
Robert Pattinson reveals in a new interview that he doesn’t think about his fan base when choosing acting roles, but instead picks the projects that interest him on a personal level.
The actor recently spoke with the Associated Press about his upcoming movie Life, an independent film in which he plays a celebrity photographer. During the discussion, Pattinson is asked if he “considers” his “fan base” when choosing scripts, to which he acknowledges, “I don’t think about it at all.”
The actor goes on to say that he’ll “go through periods” during which he contemplates making “a commercial movie,” but an agent once convinced him to opt for projects that intrigue him, as opposed to making calculated career decisions. “They said the only clients that are happy are the ones that just do what they want to do, so I just kind of do everything for myself,” says Pattinson.
Pattinson also discusses his celebrity status, admitting that when he first became famous, “I didn’t have any idea like what was going on at all.” The actor adds that fame was “incredibly strange to me and really fun at the beginning because you didn’t realize the consequences of anything.” Pattinson continues, “You could say or do whatever you wanted, and it just didn’t matter. I only really realized what being famous was about three years after I got famous.”
