I wanted to play piano in restaurants in the south of France. I went there on holiday once and I saw this guy playing in an old tuxedo. He was all disheveled, with a whisky glass on the piano. I thought that was the coolest thing. So what's happened to me with 'Twilight' isn't really what I'd planned.— Robert Pattinson

I wasn't very academic. My dad said to me, 'OK, you might as well leave, since you're not working very hard'. When I told I him wanted to stay on for my A-levels, he said I'd have to pay my own fees, then he'd pay me back if I got good grades.

I aspire to be Jack Nicholson. I love his every single mannerism. I used to try and be him in virtually everything I did, I don't know why.

It’s funny now, trying to socialise with people.
There’s this cautiousness about people which I just find really weird.

It's been amazing to play the same character through so many adventures.

The only thing that you can do is do jobs and see if people respond to that.
I'm always holding onto the fact that I don't really know who I am. Hopefully I won't compartmentalize myself because of that, because I'm completely ignorant of the whole.
It's insane. I've had girls throwing themselves at me since the hype started. Now the film's out I can't walk down the street without being pounced on. All my life I've hated crowds. Now I only have to step outdoors and I'm at the centre of one. It's very cool but it's very uncomfortable too.
My little cousin tells me I look like Magneto so I guess that's who I should probably play.
Obviously, the best dressed awards is very relevant, I'm best dressed at all times.(smiles)

This girl, called Maria. Maybe I was 14. She actually thought it was from someone else, and the other guy claimed it as well, which was just great.
You're trying to play someone [Edward Cullen] who's seen by a lot of people as being this perfect thing, but what is that? That doesn't really mean anything. You're trying to play an archetype on one hand and then a character on the other, so I felt insanely frustrated right up until the last shot, and then it ended.
I never understood the nudity thing. I’m so envious of people who can walk around naked.
When something or someone is hyped and you're put on the forefront of a lot of things, people want to tear you down. That's kind of scary, especially when you're not really putting yourself out there.
The only time I ever follow Twitter is if I'm in a restaurant or something, just before I leave, to see if people are waiting outside. It does make you a bit of a loser, especially when someone asks you, 'Hey, you want to go to dinner at this place?' and I'm like, 'Can we have dinner at this place? It has three exits.'
I'd like to be called Ransom Spunk or Spunk Ransom.

I can't deal with criticism very well.
I've already got it from one angle. I don't need it from anything else.
I’ve always said to my agents and stuff, like, it’s going to be 10 years before people forget about Twilight, And that’s totally understandable. Normally people keep working and working until their big break. You just keep trying to make the best of your decisions. Like I try to think how I used to think before all the Twilight movies.
I was obsessed with Eminem when I was younger.
When he first came out I was about 12 and fanatical about his 'Slim Shady' CD. I think he's a genius.
I don't want people to hate me. I basically do whatever I want. But one of the aspects of what I want is, I want people to like me!
