Robert Pattinson stays young by acting

November 19th, 2011

Robert Pattinson says the best thing about being famous is he can "delay being an adult".

The 25-year-old actor has achieved worldwide success with his role as vampire Edward Cullen in the 'Twilight Saga' film series and one of the main benefits of his job is that he can have fun at work every day.

He said: "I'm living a life I didn't really know existed and I can kind of delay being an adult for a while! It's fun. I get to meet really interesting people who think they are making something great."

The Hollywood heartthrob recently finished shooting the final two 'Twilight' movies and he is now looking forward to starting a new chapter in his career.

Robert - who is in a relationship with his co-star Kristen Stewart - isn't worried about being typecast because of his famous role, because there aren't that many parts similar to Edward.

He added: "I'd be interested to see how I'm perceived in a couple of years. I don't know how to predict anything. Edward's so specific, you can't really get typecast. I mean, there are only so many parts that are benevolent vampires! It would be insane to do another one afterwards."
