Robert Pattinson - Robert Pattinson's Gym Obsession
Robert Pattinson goes through phases of brief obsessions with different things, including exercise at one time.
Robert Pattinson used to be obsessed with the gym.
The 24-year-old British actor had to get in shape for a scene in 2009's 'The Twilight Saga: New Moon' where his character Edward Cullen appears shirtless and although he worked out every day to prepare, he admitted he stopped once filming was over.
He said: "I get obsessed with things in short bursts. Like at the beginning of the last 'Twilight' movie, I was working out a lot, because I had to take my shirt off all the time. So I was obsessed with going to the gym all the time and cycling everywhere but, as soon as I finished, I just stopped dead. And I haven't gone to the gym since."
However, despite his one-time obsession with his appearance, Robert admitted he hates his heartthrob status and hopes the "hysteria" won't last.
He said: "Most actors try to encourage a fan base because they think that's what's going to give them a long-lasting career. I just don't think that's the case, the more you reveal of yourself, the more you over-saturate your image, the less interesting people find you. There's only so long hysteria can last. Mystery lasts a lot longer. Yet the entire industry is devoted to tearing every shred of mystery away, so you have to work to maintain anything. In my case, I just hide."
