Robert Pattinson talks about wanting to be a dad and what his kids might be like in a new interview. When asked whether he’s interested in having children in an interview with German-language magazine Jolie, Pattinson says he definitely wants kids, but “I just don’t know when.”

The actor plays a terrible father in the upcoming film Life, the true story about the friendship of photographer Dennis Stock and James Dean, played by Dane DeHaan. Pattinson explains in his interview that he was very much attracted to the role of Stock because, “At my age, you don’t get too many chances to play a dad, and certainly not one who leaves his family.” He’s quick to note, however, that he sees his future fatherhood “differently.”

Pattinson is questioned by the magazine whether it will be hard for his future kids to have a famous father. The handsome actor responds he doesn’t imagine it will be difficult, and adds that he thinks his kids will be “totally cool and confident.” However, the self-deprecating star says his kids will probably wonder why he’s so “weird” and “eccentric.”

As Gossip Cop has reported, Pattinson and FKA Twigs got engaged a few months ago, and have not commented on any immediate plans to have children. Tell Gossip Cop what you think about Robert Pattinson’s comments about his future fatherhood.
