Robert Pattinson - Robert Pattinson's audition nerves

Robert Pattinson gets ''cripplingly nervous'' at auditions.

The 28-year-old actor insists he is ''bad'' at showing his talents when trying to land a role and the whole experience makes him very unhappy.

He said: ''I hate auditioning. I just can't do it. I get so nervous, like cripplingly nervous. I'm bad at them, and I feel awful afterward.''

Robert can next be seen starring as a gang member on a road trip in 'The Rover' and was particularly nervous before auditioning for the movie as he wanted the role so badly.

He told The Hollywood Reporter: ''It was terrifying. It's kind of rare that I really, really want stuff.''

The 'Twilight Saga' star almost gave up acting when he was 21 because his first Hollywood audition, for romantic comedy 'Post Grad', went so badly.

He said: ''I was so into the script of it and thought I knew exactly what I was doing. And then I went in and just completely blew it. And honestly, I remember talking to my family afterward and going, 'I'm done. I can't handle how gut-wrenching it is.' And I kind of knew that I was messing it up. It was my own fault.''

The British star can no longer remember what life was like before he found global fame, and is even used to being followed around by photographers.

He said: ''You figure out ways to deal with it. It's been such a long time now, it just becomes what your life is. I can't even really remember what my life was like before.''
