"I just don't want someone to have a needle and give me AIDS and I don't want to get shot or stabbed," Robert Pattinson says of his fear when dealing with the many fans of "Twilight."
Despite the worldwide fame he earns for playing the role of Edward Cullen in "Twilight," Robert Pattinson admits fans of the vampire drama flick have made him paranoid. He fears his fans might confuse reality and fiction that they then could do something that may endanger his life.
"People ambush me in public and ask me to bite them and want to touch my hair," so he says. "I just don't want someone to have a needle and give me AIDS and I don't want to get shot or stabbed. This is my life."
Recalling his bad experience with fans, Robert says his fears reached new heights at the Los Angeles premiere of "Twilight" last month due to the noise that the film's screaming fans made. "I thought, 'Oh my God. Are they going to blow the place up?'" he states.
In another Robert Pattinson news, the movie heartthrob has told British magazine Closer that before becoming an actor he used to be a model from the age of 12. Unfortunately, he lost the job when he was 16 years old because he started to look too manly. "When I first started I was quite tall and looked like a girl, so I got lots of jobs, because it was during that period where the androgynous look was cool," so he tells the publication. "Then, I guess, I became too much of a guy, so I never got any more jobs. I had the most unsuccessful modeling career."
