But not all guys, it seems. Robert Pattinson himself confessed to MTV News that he never felt comfortable during those action sequences. "Normally I just feel so silly," he said. "In 'New Moon,' I remember starting the fight with Taylor at the end. I felt like such a moron."
It's not that Pattinson felt ill at ease throwing punches — it's that his wardrobe was not exactly the sort of gear that made him feel like a badass action star. "You're always wearing skinny jeans, a little blazer and a kind of woolen sweater and trying to act like you're tough," he laughed. "You just know it's not going to happen."

"For some reason, I felt a lot more comfortable with the action stuff this time," he said.
That's a good thing, since he had a ton of action scenes to shoot. You might even say Pattinson does three things in "Eclipse": He runs around in action scenes, argues with Taylor Lautner and snuggles with Kristen Stewart. So which of these three on-set activities did he enjoy the most?
"What about those scenes snuggling with Taylor?" Pattinson joked. "Was that cut?"
