Actor Robert Pattinson admits to being insecure about his acting.
“I don’t really know how to act. I kind of wanted to somehow make it real and one of the ways I’ve always thought makes that a little bit easier is if you shake up your physical state just before action. You end up walking into a scene having a different ... feeling,” Pattinson said during an interview with British daily The Observer.
The London-born actor admits to always thinking the worst is going to happen.
However, Pattinson feels that in some instances, his pessimistic outlook can be beneficial.
“I’m a catastrophist. I’m always thinking that the worst-case scenario is actually going to happen. So when it does happen, I’m like: ‘Gah! OK! I’m prepared!’” he said.
He also shared that he’s drawn to particular types of on-screen characters.
Pattinson said: “I’m not entirely sure how to play, like, a normal person. I don’t think I’m great at subtle. I like characters who, when a situation is placed upon them, their decision-making process is incomprehensible.”
