Robert Pattinson Says He’s ‘Self-Deprecating’ And Jealous Of Taylor Lautner’s Abs

Thanksgiving has come and gone, and we’re sure all you Twilighters out there had a little moment of thanks for the cast of “New Moon” and Taylor Lautner’s six-pack before gorging on turkey and pie. We here at MTV definitely did, and our chase for interviews with the stars will never cease. Robert Pattinson recently sat down with MTV Radio to share his own, slightly less-appreciating thoughts for Taylor’s abs.

“I didn’t see Taylor until just a little bit before we started shooting [’New Moon’],” Rob said. “When he came back, I had the same reaction as everybody else. I was like, ’Jeez, now I have to go to the gym!'”

He added that he didn’t get a chance to bask in the glory that was Taylor’s smokin’ new bod because the two didn’t have many scenes together in “New Moon.” Fortunately, he said, in “Eclipse” that will be a different story.

Rob did talk about why he is the “Twilight Saga” star that does the fewest interviews.

“I think it’s such a risky thing doing interviews. I try to limit the amount of interviews I do, because no one is that interesting, especially when you’re not really saying anything,” Rob admitted. “I don’t particularly want to be some kind of character in society or whatever. So I guess the only thing you can do is do jobs and see if people respond to that.”

When asked about how he is often referred to as “self-deprecating,” Rob responded with, “I’m always told that I don’t really know who I am, so hopefully I won’t compartmentalize myself because of that. I am just completely ignorant of [how others perceive me]. I’ve never really struggled with anything up until recently. I’ve got to stop being so self-depreciating, because people are starting to believe it. They’re like, “Yeah, that guy is an idiot.” So I’ve tried to stop doing that.”
