We all know Robert Pattinson from his early role as "Edward" in Twilight, but what you may not know is how this sparkling role has haunted the actor since his fledgling career.

The fourth installment of the Twilight saga has been out for eight years and, even now, Pattinson is having nightmares about that time in his life, ill feelings towards the paparazzi that made his life impossible, and how the whole situation has affected him.

Read on to find out what he has to say.

"Terror Memories"


Pattison recently confessed about his time following Twilight in an interview with GQ, where the actor discussed how he'd have to hide in the trunks of cars or wear actual disguises just to avoid the paparazzi.

Here's what Pattinson had to say about his experience:

"I have so many terror memories of the paparazzi… and I still don full-on protective armor, hood up, hat down."

Luckily, Pattinson isn't being followed by paparazzi near as much as he was during his time, but he confesses that he is still very careful about what he wears.

Now that Pattinson has some breathing room from the paps, he's admitted to wanting to spice up his style a little more. He has yet to muster the confidence to pull it off since so much of his career has been spent tailoring himself around the paparazzi's cameras.

"I wish I could dress like A$AP Rocky, he just has serious style," Pattinson says. "We have been to quite a few different fittings together and I will see the craziest thing and really want to wear it, but look like a total moron. Then we will go to the show and I will see Rocky in it and be like, ‘Jesus Christ, you can literally wear anything!"

From vampire to bat

Moving on from his time as a sparkly vampire, Pattinson is set to star as DC's favorite caped detective in The Batman. Frankly, he has the body to pull off the brand new batsuit in this 2021 release.

The Batman's director, Matt Reeves, delivered a camera test video of Pattinson in the new decked-out suit to fans on February 13. The video panned over the suit, showing fans that Pattinson was ready to hit the night and protect Gotham City against the Jocker.

Taylor Lautner, who played Jacob Black in the Twilight saga, didn't seem to have the same issues as Pattinson according to an interview he did with MTV, where he said:

"Obviously there's the loss of privacy and the paparazzi and the media. It comes with the territory, and I know that, and I wouldn't trade it. It just comes with it. But I'm so thankful for everything, I'll take that stuff."

Whereas Kristen Stewart discussed her mixed feeling with Ellen DeGeneres, saying:

"Something personal became not the most personal thing, which is awesome because to share that is great, but at the same time I was 17 or 18 when it all kind of went down, and that’s the most uncomfortable, terrible, weird [time]."
