Imagine a world where Robert Pattinson was never photographed again.
While that hypothetical situation may sound sad and traumatic to fans of the Twilight star, Pattinson says he'd love never having to worry about paparazzi again.
"I'm just trying to not be in stupid gossip magazines, basically, and I think the best way to do it is never be photographed ever," R.Pattz joked this week during a press conference at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival in France. "As I get older, I just get more and more and more self-conscious about getting photographed. I don't know why. I've done it too many times and now I feel like everyone can see through me."
Meanwhile, the 28-year-old actor opened up about his diversifying career. He has two upcoming films: The Rover, a gritty action drama, and Maps to the Stars, a Hollywood-set indie drama.
"I had done so many parts where I was super-still—like the whole of Twilight. It's so restrictive," Pattinson said, adding of his Rover action scenes, "You do something where you have blood all over your face, you can't be expected to fit into any kind of mold."
Pattinson also joked about broadening his character repertoire, "Also, I don't really know who my audience is. I don't know if I have an audience. Outside of Twilight, I don't know."
