We now totally get it why you're acting like the mysterious guy-next-door. Robert Pattinson recently revealed that he is inspired by the Hollywood icon James Dean. That was the hint he's trying to emulate while portraying Edward Cullen in the Twilight film franchise. No wonder, the 23 year old actor owes his success to the Rebel Without a Cause star: "I tried copying James Dean's accent just because I've always wanted James Dean's voice. I think that is why it has worked. Everyone loves a bit of James Dean."
In fact, Robert Pattinson revealed that Edward was influenced by the Hollywood legend all through out - like the hair and stuff. RPattz also noted that an intense similarity of Edward Cullen's character arc to what happened to James Dean: "An everyday girl brings this relatively strange individual out of his slump." We just hope you just try to copy James Dean acting-wise - minus the dying part when he was 24 years old because of a vehicular mishap. Until now, Robert Pattinson is still uncomfy about the upsurge of female fans rooting for him: "I'm not entirely sure what it is. I'll probably realize afterwards how I could have controlled it a little bit more. But I am still like a deer in headlights at the moment."
