Robert Pattinson: 'I Tried to Copy James Dean'

January 10, 2009 by dino

Robert Pattinson says he has the legendary actor James Dean to thank for his new found fame and success.

The British actor – who plays vampire Edward Cullen in the new movie Twilight and will reprise his role in its sequel, New Moon – credits the Rebel Without a Cause star after admitting he tried to model himself on him while filming the hit movie.

Pattinson, 22, says,  “I tried copying James Dean’s accent just because I’ve always wanted James Dean’s voice.

“I think that is why it has worked. Everyone loves a bit of James Dean.”
