Robert Pattinson can now add journalist to his resume.

OK, he's not gunning for a Pulitzer, but the actor did interview Jamie Bell for the new issue of Interview magazine.

Right off the bat, Pattinson begins the fun by telling Bell, 'Let's not talk about any of your work. Let's only talk about your personal life. Your crack usage. Who are you f--king?"

Needless to say, but their chat was anything but about the Turn: Washington's Spies star's private life.

Instead, the two Brits talked about Bell's new superhero movie, a reboot of Fantastic Four.

In the film, the Billy Elliot star plays Thing.

"He's a human being before he turns into Thing," Bell says. "But there is certainly something about the anonymity of the character that is kind of intriguing. I like that. I think your anonymity has been somewhat jeopardized."

Pattinson asks, "But for any sequels, we're never going to see your face ever again?"

Bell explains that in the comic book series Miles Teller's character, Reed Richards, develops technology where he can be changed back so anything is possible with Thing.

The two then discuss Bell avoiding the pitfalls of being a child star.

"Why do you think you're not crazy?" Pattinson asks. "I mean, you are a little. It's a strange trait for actors not to have, but most of them don't have a lot of humility. I find that you're one of the most humble people I've ever met. It's unusual."

Bell, 29, admits, "I think my demons are my demons, and we all have them, and we work on them. But, I'm always impressed with people. I'm always impressed that other people are not as crazy as I would expect them to be, or more grounded, or more human than I anticipated. I'm constantly surprised by people. When you see people who could so easily be a d--k or full of themselves or not giving their time or their attention or whatever, I'm always reminded to be humble and have humility. Because it's a great trait. It reminds me that I need to do the same."

Fantastic Four is in theaters July 30.
