EXCLUSIVE: Robert Pattinson is tired of Twilight

Known predominantly for his work in the Twilight saga, 26-year-old Robert Pattinson is keen to put the blood-sucking behind him and embark upon a more mature career.

We spoke to the man himself and he revealed that as the fifth and final film is about to be released, he's happy to see the back of his 107-year-old character.

“Playing the same part for a while, you just run out of ideas," he said. "You feel kind of useless, you don’t know what to do anymore."

"I’m not trying to get away from it." he added "You’re screwing yourself, you’re saying you think your work is sh*t if you try and get away from it. And I never thought it was. But I kind of got to the end of my inspiration. You get to the point where you’re like, ‘I don’t want to do a film for a teen audience any more'."

You can read the full interview in next week's ShortList out on Wednesday.
