Actor opens up about childhood dreams

Robert Pattinson thought about becoming a rapper when he was a teenager.

The Twilight hunk, 24, used to listen to hip hop music to try to pick up a US accent.  

‘I grew up watching American movies and stuff,’ he says

‘I used to want to be a rapper when I was 14.’

Robert is glad he decided to pursue an acting career instead.

‘It’s a great position to be in because you can walk into a room and everybody’s screaming,’ he tells The Oprah Winfrey Show.

‘It’s about the fans themselves.’
