Actor Robert Pattinson, best known for his role as vampire Edward Cullen in the Twilight franchise, has revealed that his rebellious trait almost get him fired while filming the first movie, which released in 2008.
Pattinson says his agent managed to calm him down.
“I didn’t have to kiss anybody’s (bu**) the entire time. I don’t think I did, anyway,” Pattinson told nytimes.com.
On other hand, Pattinson says filming the Twilight series was “an amazing luxury”.
He said that it was “amazing luck, as well, to just have fallen into it with the group of people (he) worked with on it.”
Despite having been involved in other projects, Pattinson didn’t mind if people keep associating him with his role in Twilight.
“I think one of the best things, basically, about being a bit of a sellout, is if you’ve done five movies in a series, you’ve had to accept some responsibility for playing the same character,” Pattinson said.
