Robert Pattinson ate very little apart from bread and barbecue sauce while shooting his latest movie 'The Rover' in Australia

Robert Pattinson lived on a diet of bread and barbecue sauce while filming 'The Rover'.

The 28-year-old actor insists he didn't mind shooting the movie - in which he plays a troubled man who is left for dead by his brother in the Australian outback - in remote surroundings because he found it so peaceful.

Asked whether it was a miserable experience filming in the heat and humidity of the desert, he explained: "No! Everyone keeps asking about how it awful the conditions were. But it was kind of nice.

"I liked it. The landscape is amazing and beautiful. The town was nine hours out of Adelaide in the desert. There was nothing to do. One pub. That was it. I literally ate bread and barbecue sauce for six weeks, every single day."

Pattinson also revealed that despite his acting successes, he still struggles from debilitating anxiety in front of the camera.

He told Time Out magazine: "My main problem with acting is crippling anxiety, especially in auditions. Since 'Twilight' I've tried to avoid them; I've maybe done three.

"The idea of it being a competition gets too much for me."
