The actor won't return as Edward Cullen

Robert Pattinson has ruled out doing any more films in the Twilight saga.

The actor shot to fame in his role as vampire Edward Cullen in the franchise but thinks he’s aged too much to ever play the immortal teen again.

I couldn’t do another Twilight movie,’ says Rob, 28.

I’m too old.’

Rob starred in the first Twilight flick with on-off girlfriend Kristen Stewart back in 2008 and the final film was released in 2012.

The saga was hugely successful and Rob admits its popularity took him completely by surprise.

No one thought it was going to be a big deal,’ the actor tells Variety.

We thought it was going to be like Thirteen [the debut film by Twilight director Catherine Hardwicke].’
