Twilight success depressed Pattinson

Actor Robert Pattinson has revealed that he battled with depression after his rise to fame with the success of Twilight saga.

‘I went through a big time of depression between 23 and 25. I couldn’t go where I wanted to go, I was in the tabloids every day and I didn't have access to the roles I really wanted. I wanted more, on every level,’ quoted Pattinson as saying.

‘I finally realised that you needed to earn this change I so desperately wanted. That one way or another, you had to suffer to be able to make it. I thought everything was going to be served on a plate, but that's not how it works,’ he added. Pattinson, 26, most recently starred in director David Cronenberg’s independent thriller Cosmopolis, which helped him to come out of his depression.

‘When David Cronenberg offered Cosmopolis to me, I had never read anything as interesting for years,’ Pattinson continued.

The final instalment of the Twilight franchise, Breaking Dawn: Part 2 is set to hit screens 16 November in the US.
