Pattinson Based Twilight Role On Rebel Dean

ROBERT PATTINSON based his enigmatic TWILIGHT character on movie icon JAMES DEAN.
The British actor shot to international fame when he took on the role of heart-throb vampire Edward Cullen in the hit bloodsucker movie.
Pattinson did a lot of research before he started shooting the film, and admits he used Dean's performance in Rebel Without A Cause as the basis for his character.
He tells USA Weekend magazine,"Rebel Without A Cause was a big influence on the first (Twilight film) - it influenced the hairdo and stuff. In lots of ways, it has a very similar character arc: an everyday girl brings this relatively strange individual out of his slump."
