The British actor rushed out of the LA cinema

Robert Pattinson was overcome with nerves at the LA premiere of Twilight.

The hunk, who plays Edward Cullen in the vampire flick, fled the theatre after just ten minutes.

‘I went out and sat in the car, having a full-blown panic attack,’ he admits.

Robert, 22, who is filming Twilight sequel New Moon, says he’ll be picky about his future acting roles.

‘I’m not massively concerned about doing lots of acting jobs,’ he tells GQ.

‘If it all just went, right now, I’d be like, “All right. I don’t really care”. That’s probably a stupid thing to say. But I don’t, really.

‘I think it’d be much worse to do a load of stuff that’s really bad.’

Twilight comes out on DVD on 6 April.
