Robert Pattinson may now be an international movie star with millions of adoring fans, but in a candid new interview, the actor admits he was a “dork” growing up and spent a lot of time alone. The actor made the confession in W Magazine’s Best Performances issue, which highlights the actors and actresses who most stood out in 2017.

“Growing up, I was pretty much a dork,” Pattinson tells the publication. “I really liked playing Warhammer, but I never actually figured out the rules. I just made up my own. So I never played with anybody else, because I was playing by my own rules. I was alone a lot.” For those unfamiliar, Warhammer is a role-playing board game set in a fantasy world.

Pattinson graces one of six covers for the special edition of the fashion magazine thanks to his critically-acclaimed role in the crime thriller Good Time. The actor appears on the cover alongside transgender actress Daniela Vega, who’s generating buzz for her starring role in the Chilean drama A Fantastic Woman.

The Twilight star is featured on the cover wearing a Dior Homme tuxedo, shirt and bow tie. Inside the magazine, he’s pictured leaning against a brick wall wearing a Burberry coat, Dior Homme sweater, Berluti pants, Frye Company boots and a Rolex watch. Following the success of Good Time, Pattinson has more highly-anticipated films lined up in 2018. Some of his upcoming projects include the western Damsel, the space drama High Life and the two-part movie The Souvenir, a romantic mystery from executive producer Martin Scorsese.

Additional performers paired up together on separate covers for the latest issue of W include Jennifer Lawrence and Emma Stone, Tom Hanks and Mary J. Blige, James Franco and Gal Gadot, Margot Robbie and Nicole Kidman, and Saoirse Ronan and Andrew Garfield. See Pattinson’s cover photo and his accompanying image below.
