Rob is totally over playing a dreamy ‘Breaking Dawn’ vampire — he wants roles where he doesn’t have to wear tons of makeup and contacts!

Robert Pattinson is saying goodbye to eternal life! The 24-year-old actor is incredibly busy filming the final scenes for Breaking Dawn but it turns out he much prefers his new role as Jacob Jankowski in the upcoming Water For Elephants. But there’s one main reason he can’t stand being in Twilight — the makeup!

“It’s nice to be able to actually touch your face without thinking you’re going to get a huge smudge mark over it,” Rob tells Good Morning Arizona of his Twilight role as Edward Cullen. “Not having a big kabuki mask on and the contacts … [Water For Elephants] is a totally different experience.”

But this isn’t the first time Rob has complained about his golden black Twi-eyes — “I actually want to get some kind of plastic explosive … I want to reanimate them into something so I can kill them,” he tells Entertainment Weekly.

Rob doesn’t just stop there — he tells Australia’s Mornings With Kerri Anne that a big franchise series like Twilight can’t really be considered “film.”

“When movies become these franchises and big machines people can’t really see them as movies anymore it’s so difficult for people to understand it,” Rob says. “It seems to happen to every big franchise now, and people tend to think of the cultural relevance of it than the actually movie. So it’s nice to do this [Water For Elephants]. Things that are made purely to be a movie. They are not going to be in any fast food restaurants.”

It sounds like these past four years as a vampire have been less than thrilling for Rob — are you surprised?

Check out Water For Elephants when it hits theaters April 22!
