Yo, M.C. Cullen! Twilight's Robert Pattinson says his teenage ambition was not to be an international sex symbol in vampire movies -- rather, he wanted to be a rapper. That's right, during Thursday's Twilight-themed episode of The Oprah Winfrey Show, Pattinson, 23, says he perfected his American accent by dropping rhymes. "I grew up watching American movies," the blushing Brit tells Oprah, "but the main thing was, I used to want to be a rapper when I was, like, 14. I swear to God."
Hmm, let's see... R-Pattz would have been 14 in 2000, which is when The Marshall Mathers LP was released... think he fancied himself the British Eminem? For what it's worth, costar (and rumored girlfriend) Kristen Stewart doesn't think Pattison's American accent is so hot. "Kristen thinks I do the most terrible American accent in the world," he tells Oprah, laughing.
"No, I don't!" Stewart replies. "Occasionally some word will come out and I'll be like, 'We don't say that.'"
For more confessions from the Twilight cast, including what Taylor Lautner looks for in a girl, tune in to today's Oprah -- airing, appropriately, on Robert Pattinson's 24th birthday!
