Robert Pattinson has admitted that he lost his appetite for Twilight.
The British heartthrob, whose final movie in the hit Vampire series is out later this year, apparently told ShortList magazine that he wanted to stop making films for a teenage audience.
Robert, 26, whose new movie Cosmopolis, directed by David Cronenberg and recently premiered at Cannes Film Festival, said he got to a point where he no longer felt inspired.
"Playing the same part for a while, you just run out of ideas," he was quoted as saying of his role as Edward Cullen. "You feel kind of useless, you don't know what to do any more."
The actor, who shot to fame around the globe in the Vampire series, said: "I'm not trying to get away from it. You're screwing yourself, you're saying you think your work is s*** if you try and get away from it. And I never thought it was.
"But I kind of got to the end of my inspiration. You get to the point where you're like, 'I don't want to do a film for a teen audience any more'."
The final film in the Twilight franchise, Breaking Dawn - Part 2, which also stars Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner, is set for release in November.
