Despite the millions of teen girls who want him, just wants to be his own man. After a tough year, the The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2 star wants to move on with his life and career, keeping his friends close and his enemies far, far away.
In a new interview with Australia's Sunday Style, RPatz gets confessional:
I don't ever feel the need to forgive or expect people to be. I judge people on their actions. I don't really care if it's wrong or right, I give them the benefit of the doubt. If they do something I can't be bothered to deal with, I just cut them out. There's not very much that really bothers me.
But there are still people who can count on him:
I'm quite sensitive, and I do like a bit of grand gesturing, but that's just my ego. I like to give people presents and I think of myself as the best gift giver, but only because I get stuff for myself and then make it work for the other person.
Although none of his other flicks have been able to eclipse the Twilight bubble, Rob is committed to be taken seriously as an actor:
I'm 27 now and I can feel people looking at me differently, it's a weird year. With Twilight ending and other films I've done, like Cosmopolis, I suddenly feel like I'm being treated like an actual actor.
Next year, Rob will appear in The Rover, an Australian crime drama set in the near future and across the desert. Directed by the critically-acclaimed , I'd say he's moving in the right direction.
