Robert Pattinson put in time at the gym while filming Twilight – because he wanted to get rid of all his fat.
The actor plays vampire Edward Cullen in the movie, a character Pattinson says is “meant to have this amazing body”.
So to get himself in to shape for the part, Robert admits he followed a strict exercise regime – but he didn’t just want to end up with a six pack.
He says, “I did go to the gym for the movie in the end. I did it for a different reason. I didn’t just want to have a six pack. I wanted to have no fat at all.”
“I don’t see myself as gorgeous,” he adds. “I put off doing the audition for months because of that. I read the book and I thought, well, there is no point in going in. I thought that the whole point of the part was just to be a purely physical performance. Like a modeling job.
“And I thought, I’m not going to go to the gym for one thing and so I’m already ruled out because he’s meant to have this amazing body too.”
Pattinson reprises his role alongside Kristen Stewart & Taylor Lautner in Twilight sequel New Moon, which hits theaters later this year.
