‘Robert Pattinson admits he ignores the media hype surrounding him.
The British actor – who became a household name playing vampire Edward Cullen in the recent Twilight movie – says he is determined to remain level-headed, and refuses to read about himself in the press.
“I try to ignore what people say about me,” says Pattinson. “You tell yourself that everything you do is crap.
“The more people who tell you [how great you are], the bigger the need for you to prove it.
“It’s like everyone is saying how great you are even if you haven’t done anything.
“Besides, there’s always a bigger number of people who want to screw you over.”
Pattinson, 22, reprises his role as Cullen in Twilight sequel New Moon, which is due for release later this year.
