Robert Pattinson

What words spring to mind when you think of Twilight star Robert Pattinson? “Hot”, “confident”, “self-assured” and… “hot” are the first ones that spring to our minds. Which is why we were so surprised to find that the 27-year-old is seriously concerned that his looks are depleting. Yes, really.

When asked by InStyle magazine whether he considers himself to be doing OK in the looks department, he replied: “It depends, sometimes. But I'm weird about my looks.” Er, what? The man who was voted Sexiest Man of 2012 by Glamour UK and was named fragrance ambassador for Dior Homme is weird about his looks? This saddens us deeply!

The actor went onto say: “Once you get photographed a lot it changes you. I remember when I first did Twilight I didn't care about how I looked - there was less pressure, I guess. I was like, 'I'm cool as s**t!’ [Now] every time I appear somewhere, I think, 'I don't know how many more times I can do this'. Dressing up to go somewhere and be looked at - I get so nervous. Up until the second I have to leave, I'll get changed a million times.” Wow, we’ve never heard a celeb admit to being nervous on the red carpet; we just assumed they had bullet-proof confidence. Props to R-Pattz for being honest about it.

But he didn’t stop there, Rob revealed that he gets so stressed about his appearance before an event, he actually has panic attacks. "It's crazy. Literally, just before I go, I look in the mirror and think, 'You look like s*'. I start worrying about wrinkles. Honestly, everyone who works with me knows they'll have to sit there and wait for me to go through my process of having my panic attack about how I look."

R-Pattz, we have a message for you: please, please stop stressing about those chiselled looks of yours because they’re totally doing it for us. Also, STOP stressing about wrinkles because you’re only 27! If we can learn anything from Rob’s insecurities it’s that we all need to place a little less value in our looks and just enjoy life (or in Rob’s case, being super rich and famous). Agreed?
