Robert Pattinson discusses 'Twilight' depression

By Sarah Burbank-Douglas,

Robert Pattinson expressed in a recent interview that being at the center of attention caused him a great deal of stress and depression throughout his Twilight career.

The Hollywood Gossip reports that Pattinson talked about the difficulties of stardom in a recent issue of Premiere magazine.

He explains, "I went through a big time of depression between 23 and 25…I couldn't go where I wanted to go."

In addition, he expressed his displeasure of reading about his life in the tabloids and his struggle with seeing his costars move on to other films. "I was in the tabloids every day and I didn't have access to the roles I really wanted," he says. "I wanted more, on every level."

"I saw Kristen leave to film Snow White and the Huntsman, Taylor was also doing his thing on the side, and I was just going in circles, asking myself if I was going to take a break and go back to music."

Pattinson seems to be able to handle himself now. Ever since the grueling pain of his on-again girlfriend Kristen’s highly publicized affair with her Snow White director Rupert Sanders, Pattinson has maintained that he will not speak about his relationship with Kristen, nor will he confirm if the two are back together.

On Thursday, the actor dodged relationship questions by Today co-host Samantha Guthrie, responding to her relationship question saying, “I want to ask, because we get asked it all the time. Who is actually asking? Is it in your contract?"
