I can’t fulfill expectations: Pattinson

London: Twilight star Robert Pattinson is concerned about not being able to fulfill expectations arising from his sudden rise to fame in Hollywood.

The 25-year-old British actor has become one of the most bankable movie stars since his rise to fame in The Twilight Saga, where he plays vampire Edward Cullen.

But he says he to being concerned about not being as good as he is expected to be, and fears his future films will be failures, reported Observer magazine.

“After the last one comes out, you can kind of have two failures – and they’d better be low budget failures. Because if you have one big-budget failure, you’re pretty much done in this environment.

“It’s different from Kristen, for example. She doesn’t like about it like that at all, because she grew up gradually, doing independent movies and stepping up the ladder, whereas I was doing progressively smaller movies in England after Harry Potter,” he said.

“I’m not just another actor who’s around a jobbing. When you hire me for a job, you’re hiring. I’m not this ‘thing that’s supposed to be something. And if you then don’t fulfil that expectation, what are you?” he added.

However, Pattinson says he is keen to be seen as more than just the guy from Twilight.

“If I do decide one day to stop acting, I just hate the idea of people going, ‘Oh, did you ever do anything else besides that Twilight thing’,” he said. (PTI)
