Check out an excerpt via The Mirror:
Robert Pattinson has said starring in the Twilight franchise meant he couldn't step foot in a supermarket for SIX years.UPDATE
The actor, whose fame skyrocketed after landing the role of vampire Edward Cullen in the movie adaptation of the popular books, revealed he'd have people following him around 24/7.
"I had people sitting outside my house every single day, and it drove me crazy," Robert, who also recently admitted he finds it hard to stay in shape these days, told NME magazine.
"I didn't go into a supermarket for about six years. But now I can go in and chat to the guy who's working there about his kids, or where he's going on holiday, and not be thinking, 'Is he gonna sell me out?'
He added: "I just don't have to think about that stuff anymore."
Pattinson, who looks as handsome as ever on the cover of the magazine, reckons the most embarrassing photo anyone could ever take of him would be "in a bookshop and everyone can see what book you're buying".
He also has mixed feelings about certain award show ceremonies, saying: "I was watching the MTV VMAs the other day and thinking how bizarre it was that I ever did that s**t.
"I remember doing those awards and saying the dumbest stuff. And I was hungover for most of it."
Googling himself is not something he does often, but he admits to doing it every now and then.
"I go through periods where I don't do it at all and feel glorious! Then I'll fall back into this pit," he says.
"It really does affect you, and it all comes from some moron sitting on a comment board. It's always that person who's needling away at you, who you either want to destroy, or convince them to love you."
Robert Pattinson labels people who leave abusive messages online as "demons who live in basements" in his NME cover feature.
FKA Twigs responded to racist abuse on Twitter last September, following news romantically linking her to the Twilight actor.
Speaking to NME for the cover feature of this week's all-new free magazine, distributed in more than 500 locations on Friday, September 25, Pattinson is asked what he thinks about the comments – specifically those aimed at his girlfriend.
"I was talking to my dad about this and I bet him that if he looked up Nelson Mandela's funeral on YouTube, the first comment would be a racist one," Pattinson says. "And it was, with like a million upvotes."
"What I don’t get is why. I think it’s because most normal people are not commenters – I’ve never met anyone who’s left a comment on anything," he adds. "It’s just demons who live in basements. You have this weird thing where you end up trying to fight against this faceless blob, where the more you hate it, the bigger it gets, because it’s all in your head.”
That said, Pattinson admits that he does Google himself, not out of vanity, but out of a “weird compulsion” to “reinforce my negative opinion of myself."
