But the success of the first two instalments in the franchise – Twilight, which came out in 2008, and New Moon, which was released last November – has engendered its own set of problems, not least on the set of his first post-Twilight movie, Remember Me.
'Honestly,’ begins Pattinson when we meet up in a hotel in London, 'shooting Remember Me was really difficult.
I thought no way could anybody play this guy.’ When Pattinson’s casting was announced, the books’ 17 million-odd fans duly erupted with such hatred you’d think the film-makers had picked Ronnie Corbett.
Pattinson’s mother kept calling to tell her son that he was being called 'too old’ or 'too ugly’ all over the internet.
Prior to auditioning for the role, it’s safe to say that Pattinson did not fit this description.
An aw-shucks modesty has become part of Pattinson’s shtick.
' Basically, anyone who wants to be seen as attractive should just get Stephenie Meyer to say: “This guy is attractive.” Then everybody believes it.’ Pattinson grew up in the bucolic London suburb of Barnes.
His mother, Clare, worked for a modelling agency, while his father, Richard, is a vintage-car dealer.
Today, at just 23, he sits atop a film franchise that is expected to make in excess of £1.3 billion by the time it ends.
He has already filmed the third in the series, Eclipse, and will shoot the fourth and final chapter, Breaking Dawn, at the end of the year.His agent encouraged him to find similar high-profile roles, but Pattinson opted for a part on stage, taking the lead in a Royal Court production of The Woman Before.
