Finding his nowadays fame as "a bit of a surprise", Robert Pattinson confesses he began his acting career from nothing and so credits his local drama group, Barnes Theatre Club, to have contributed to his popularity. "I owe everything to the Barnes Theatre Club," he says in a statement.

"I never did acting in school," Robert recalls further. "My dad was in a restaurant and saw a bunch of pretty girls and decided to go up and ask where they had been. They said they went to this drama club, so he said we'd better go down too! It's the only time he's done something like that," so he shares the story on how he learned acting for the very first time in his life.

"We went down there and I began to work backstage. Then one day I was the only one left to play a leading role. That was the first acting I'd done and yet somehow I got an agent," he continues.

In another Robert Pattinson news, it has been reported that the movie hunk often feels guilty over fans' fascination, reasoning that he can offer nothing to them in return. "I mean people yesterday at the premiere, some were like 'I've come from Brazil just to stand here for the premiere'. I used to get so stressed out because people are screaming at you. And you just think 'What do I have to do? I cant give anything back to you at all," GMTV quotes him as saying.

"Literally, I'm like 'Do you wanna come home with me?' Please don't answer that! I'm just saying it to be nice!" he adds.
