Humble and handsome! Rob said he never imagined that the ‘Twilight Saga’ would be the blockbuster sensation it is today!

When everyone’s favorite vampire signed onto The Twilight Saga, he never expected it would have the success and cult following it has today. Robert Pattinson told Empire Magazine that after reading the Twilight script, he thought he would be starring in an indie film about teenage vampires.

“I thought at the time, with Catherine Hardwicke and Kristen Stewart, it was going to be an indie movie. It seemed really interesting: a teen vampire movie that was going to be like Thirteen and really serious. I had no idea it was going to be this big thing you’d get on Burger King hats,” revealed Rob.

After all the money, media, and female attention, it’s refreshing to see that Rob hasn’t let fame get to his head. He became an A-lister overnight with the success of Twilight, but he still acts like an average Joe.

We think Rob’s humility is genuine, and hope he never lets his popularity spoil his down-to-earth charm. Rob has proved himself to be more than just the brooding, teenage vampire Edward Cullen, and we’re excited to see where his bright career will take him! Tell us what you think about Rob’s humble personality!
