Robert Pattinson says he finally feels like he’s being treated like an actor.

According to Gossip Cop – in the  September 15 issue of Australia’s Sunday Style – he explains, “I’m trying to get out of being perceived as really young and I think doing [Dior] helps along those lines. I’m 27 now and I can feel people looking at me differently. It’s a weird year. With Twilight ending and other films I’ve done, like Cosmopolis, I suddenly feel like I’m being treated like an actual actor.”

Talking about fame – he admits, “It’s difficult to remain sane. It’s really difficult. In the beginning I didn’t even notice my life had changed so massively, because I was always working. I suppose eventually I got used to it.”

Pattinson also confesses he panics when he has to walk red carpets.

“I get a ton of anxiety, right up until the second I get out of the car to the event, when suddenly it completely dissipates. But up until that moment I’m a nut case. Body dysmorphia, overall tremendous anxiety. I suppose it’s because of these tremendous insecurities that I never found a way to become egotistical. I don’t have a sixpack and I hate going to the gym. I’ve been like that my whole life. I never want to take my shirt off. I’d prefer to get drunk.”

The Maps to the Stars also discusses friendships.

“I don’t ever feel the need to forgive or expect people to be,” says Pattinson. “I judge people on their actions. I don’t really care if it’s wrong or right, I give them the benefit of the doubt. If they do something I can’t be bothered to deal with, I just cut them out.”

On romantic relationships he shares, “I’m quite sensitive, and I do like a bit of grand gesturing, but that’s just my ego. I like to give people presents and I think of myself as the best gift giver, but only because I get stuff for myself and then make it work for the other person.”

Asked why he is now the face of Dior Homme he jokes, “I just got so smelly that I had to start wearing it.”
