Robert Pattinson has confessed a rather odd fetish — he's addicted to reading his terrible reviews.
The 29-year-old actor admitted his "weird habit" of perusing negative reviews in an interview with The Observer.
"I do read reviews to a fault, and it's an awful thing to do," he revealed. "It's an addiction. And you only read the bad ones, too, just to foster hatred, self-hatred, self-loathing."
The star also said that he often feels like "a fraud" and has an overwhelming desire to prove himself, though he's not "entirely sure" of what he needs to prove.
Pattinson shot to fame as the dreamy Edward Cullen in the "Twilight" movies and started dating his co-star Kristen Stewart.
Their relationship spectacularly imploded in July 2012 when Stewart, 22, was covertly photographed kissing and hugging her "Snow White and the Huntsman" director, Rupert Sanders, 44.
Two years later Pattinson commented on the breakup to Esquire UK magazine saying, "S--t happens, you know? It's just young people…It's normal! And honestly, who gives a s--t?"
He's now engaged to British singer FKA Twigs but declines to talk about the relationship. "I've just found if you never talk about stuff it's better," he demurred. "But thank you."
Pattinson has also moved back to London and says that the British tabloid press are much easier to deal with than media in Los Angeles, claiming that the constant surveillance by paparazzi was driving him crazy. "Celebrity press — they are interested in different things in England," he noted. "Which is wonderful!"
