ACTOR Robert Pattinson has never been one to hide his disdain for the franchise that kickstarted his Hollywood career - the late 2000's mega-hit Twilight series.

When the British looker landed the role of vampire Edward Cullen, he instantly became a fan -favorite with millions of admirers. However, the attention was hard to accustom to, as is evident from many past interviews of his.

One from back in the day, when Breaking Down Part 2 was about to release, was recently unearthed by Hindustan Times herein Pattinson said he would have hated the films if he wasn't a part of them. ''I think I'm a judgmental and cynical person who just mindlessly hate it without having seen anything; I just think I'm a bad person,'' he had said.

In yet another interview with Vanity Fair, the actor mentioned how he particularly disliked being a part of something he didn't personally like. ''There's nothing you can do about it. That's the way it is. But it is weird being part of that, kind of representing something you don't particularly like.''

That's not all! Pattinson had even talked about the girls that made up the majority of his fan base and gave him the success of a lifetime. It does have an angle which is attached to something quite primal in girls.

I guess people want it to define them, like, 'I'm a Twilight fan.' That's crazy just tremendously exciting about hyping yourself up to that level.''

However, over the years, as Pattinson has grown into his characters and explored more avenues, he has also come to look back with bittersweet memories.

Speaking to  USA Today, last year, he was quoted as saying, ''It's a fascinating second wave of people appreciating it, which is kind of cool.

I think when anything becomes a massive phenomenon, there's always people who get annoyed because it's just everywhere. But now it seems like a retro thing : the soundtrack, the fashion. It's like, 'Oh, that's so late 2000s'.''

He continued. ''People come up and just have very fond memories of it. It's a really sweet thing. I think the only scary part was right in the thick of it all, when it was very, very intense. Now the intensity has died down and it's just very warm memories. ''

Currently Pattinson is all set to be part of two of the biggest releases in recent years - Christopher Nolan's Tenet and Matt Reeves' The Batman, in which he will essay the role of the iconic superhero.
