"Twilight" leading actor Robert Pattinson has been quoted as stating, "I'm not afraid of anything anymore." Explaining on his statement, he reveals, "You know, I've failed at so many things in my life ..... So now I'm like, 'If it crashes, it crashes. Who cares?'" He shared further, "I modeled when I was a teenager. In that job, you learn to take rejection in stride."
Previously, Robert 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 told 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."
Considered as a heartthrob and ladies' man following the success of "Twilight," Robert Pattinson recently was named one of MTV's Male Pop MVPs in 2009. Moreover, it is also claimed that Pattinson has attracted Courtney Love's attention. Love has been rumored to want him to date her daughter Frances Bean Cobain.
