ROB AS COMEDY? IDK BUT I WOULD LOVE TO SEE IF HE COULD DO IT
ROBERT Pattinson sees himself as the next Hugh Grant — he wants to star in a romantic comedy!
The hunky British actor — who shot to fame in the super-successful Twilight movie franchise — says he’s keen to make the transition to chick flicks, but is yet to find the right role.
“I’d love to, but they are always just so rubbish — I mean like, I’d absolutely love to do it, but I’ve literally never read a good rom-com script,” Rob, 23, told Britain’s GMTV.
“I think it’s such a typical career choice for me, as well, to be honest.
“If you do a big franchise thing — especially for English guys — you try and do a Hugh Grant part or something. Which I don’t think would be the best idea for me… mainly because it’s quite difficult to be Hugh Grant!”
Pattinson recently admitted he feels “lucky” to be considered sexy.
“I have been lucky, of course,” he said in an interview with Britain’s Telegraph newspaper. “Like, last year, if I went out, I’d have to fight to chat someone up.
“This year, I look exactly the same, which is really scruffy, and yet lots of people seem to have just changed their minds and decided I’m really sexy.
“Basically, anyone who wants to be seen as attractive should just get Twilight author Stephenie Meyer to say, ‘This guy is attractive’. Then everybody believes it.”
