Fame can be a pain, says leading man Pattinson

By Kerri-Ann Roper

Fame made Twilight star Robert Pattinson avoid supermarkets for six years.

The 29-year-old star, who has been filming The Lost City of Z in north Antrim with Brad Pitt, made the admission in an interview with NME magazine.

The actor, who was catapulted to fame as Edward Cullen in the movie adaptation of the Twilight books, said: "I had people sitting outside my house every day, and it drove me crazy. I didn't go into a supermarket for about six years. But now I can go in and chat to the guy who's working there about his kids or where he's going on holiday, and not be thinking, 'Is he going to sell me out?' I just don't have to think about that stuff any more." Pattinson, who dated Twilight co-star Kristen Stewart until she had an affair with Snow White And The Huntsman director Rupert Sanders, also told of his fear of being caught in bad photos.

He said the most humiliating picture anyone could take of him would be "in a bookshop where everyone can see what book you're buying".
