Robert Pattinson doesn't think acting is as "cool" as it used to be and says waitering is perceived to be chic than starring in movies
Robert Pattinson thinks waitering is "cooler" than acting.
The 'Twilight' star believes things have changed for people since he first became an actor and says serving customers at a restaurant or bar has become more popular than acting.
He explained to Total Film: "It's changed a little bit now. Since I've become an actor, most people don't want to admit it. When I was just auditioning absolutely everyone was. It's crazy.
"But when you get to a certain point, no-one really wants to admit it anymore. People just want to say they're a waiter! That's way cooler! I'm not trying to be an actor, I just want to be waiter for the rest of my life."
Meanwhile, the 29-year-old actor previously claimed he cannot remember his life before he became famous.
He shared: "I had a bit of a struggle at first because my life really contracted and I couldn't do a lot of the stuff I used to be able to do.
"But once I got through that a year or two ago I just accepted my life is something else and now I can't really remember what it was like before, so it's much easier to deal with."
