Robert Pattinson is already a seasoned enough actor, but he still has to audition to get roles — a process that he loathes. He recently opened up to the Guardian about the process which involves making himself throw up and punching himself in the face.
Pattinson called reading the script for his new movie The Rover a “dream”, but auditioning for the role was anything but. He revealed, “I just can’t…I literally can’t do it. It’s just me looking uncomfortable, trying to put on an American accent…or sitting in the corner, making myself throw up and punching myself in the face.”
After 45 minutes of neuroses, as he calls it, he is able to perform. He said, “Just that you think that someone actually believes you can do something. That makes me sound like such an idiot. It’s crazy. For whatever reason, I think there’s something profoundly satisfying about being able to watch something you’ve done afterwards, or to just do a scene and feel like, ‘Oh, I just had an out of body experience for a second!’”
Pattinson also added that the Twilight films were the hardest out of all of his acting jobs so far. He said, “I think Twilight’s probably the hardest part I’ve done because to do it for five movies, it’s really hard to think of stuff that’s maybe not boring. Especially if you don’t die. Because what’s the drama? You’re not scared of anything! And that’s the whole essence of drama: life and death.”

“Twilight” actor Robert Pattinson arrives on a flight from Los Angeles at Heathrow airport in London, England on August 5, 2014. He was spotted by the paparazzi wearing an all black ensemble including jeans, jacket, hat and tennis shoes.
Robert has recently opened up about his failed relationship with his ex-girlfriend Kristen Stewart. He said, “S**t happens, you know? It’s just young people … it’s normal! And honestly, who gives a s**t? The hardest part was talking about it afterwards. Because when you talk about other people, it affects them in ways you can’t predict.”

Robert Pattinson covers the latest issue of “Esquire” magazine and inside this issue, he talks about his breakup with Kristen Stewart, gossip and the paparazzi.
His breakup with Kristen was the talk of the town two years ago, but the British actor has finally decided to open up about it. He said, “S**t happens, you know? It’s just young people…it’s normal! And honestly, who gives a s**t?”
With regard to the gossip about their breakup, he admitted that it was worse talking about it to other people. He told the magazine, “When you talk to other people, it affects them in ways you can’t predict. It’s like that scene in ‘Doubt,’ where [Philip Seymour Hoffman is] talking about how to take back gossip? They throw all those feathers from a pillow into the sky and you’ve got to go and collect all the feathers.”
When speaking of the paparazzi, he said, “I used to dress up my assistant as me, and get him to drive off with like five cars following him around for hours. I think it goes through periods where you’re assigned ‘this is the guy to follow’. But whenever I see a bunch of paparazzi hanging out, I always think, ‘Oh God, what have they found out!’ Oh, THAT love child! I totally forgot!”
