Robert Pattinson Says He Still Feels Like a 'Fraud' in Hollywood

He's been acting in major films for over a decade, and is definitely considered an A-lister, but Robert Pattinson still believes he's a fraud in Hollywood. In a recent interview, the Twilight star opened up about the downside of fame, and why he still considers himself to be a pretender in the industry.

Talking with The Observer, Pattinson opened up about living life in the limelight, and about playing James Dean's photographer in the upcoming Life.

"The idea of taking a photographer back to my family's house ... it's just insane!" he said. "It's not really even to do with the photographs -- it might be nice to have a really good photographer do it, but it's bringing your family into the public domain and then having to have them deal with this horrible cacophony of demons who live on the internet."

He said that he believes "internet trolls" have destroyed a lot of things by the hate and negativity they bring into people's lives. "Even if you can ignore it, and I don't think anyone can really ignore it," he lamented.

RPatz also admitted that he's felt the need to apologize to his sisters about the craziness he's brought into their lives, even though they've asked for it. "With my sisters, you just bring people into something they have not asked to be part of," he explained. "It's impossible for you to stop it afterwards. All you can say is: 'I'm sorry. I'm sorry for bringing this darkness into your life. And also you don't get anything out of it, either.'"

But maybe the craziest thing he copped to was feeling like a "fraud" as an actor. He confessed, "I definitely feel like I need to prove something, and I'm not entirely sure what it is ... So that's probably what my turmoil is."

He continued, "In a lot of ways, I'm quite proud that I'm still getting jobs. To go from starting a job by accident when you're 16 and maintaining it somehow and learning how to do it on the job as well. Because of falling into a job, you always feel like you're a fraud, that you're going to be thrown out at any second. So yeah, the main thing I do hope is to gradually get rid of that and really be doing without feeling like you're faking it."

It just goes to show that no matter how successful you become, or how famous you get, or how much money you earn -- you'll still have those same inner demons trying to convince you that you're not good enough. Hopefully Rob can find some peace about it, because definitely want to see more of him onscreen!
