Do you believe that saying about "handsome is as handsome does?" Well, "Twilight" star Robert Pattinson does not go to the gym - but most would agree that he qualifies as handsome anyway. Now he's confessing that his six-pack abdominal muscles displayed in his shirtless scenes in the “Twilight” film saga were actually spray-painted, according to Celebrity Health & Fitness on September 12.
In contrast to the actors who hit the gym and dedicate hours to toning their core, Robert dislikes the gym. "I think I don’t get some jobs because I don’t go to the gym," he admitted. “I am literally the only actor in LA who doesn’t have a six-pack. Although I am going to have to change that.”
Motivating him: Roles that involve showing more of Robert's body. “In my next film I have like three intimate scenes so I am literally thinking of those to get in shape,” he explains.
But Robert still dislikes exercise.
“I don’t ever want anyone to see me doing exercise,” he says. “Even though I am doing it, I still think it’s so lame and embarrassing. I am doing it out of necessity, that’s all.”
In addition to struggling to get himself to exercise, he's struggling to quit smoking. He was seen smoking an electronic cigarette in an attempt to surrender his nicotine habit.
Overall, Robert seeks to avoid the Hollywood scene. "It’s not really me so I have never really felt attached to it.” And he feels uncomfortable with all the attention.
“I am very anti-paparazzi, but I guess you kind of get used to the thing. In fact I just started getting better at hiding,” he confessess. “As soon as you figure out a way to live where people don’t follow you around, stress levels go down.”
