Robert Pattinson has admitted that his recently role in David Cronenberg's 'Cosmopolis' has give his confidence.
The Twilight actor confessed the sex-and-violence filled movie has made him consider tackling heavier roles.
He told Premiere magazine: "Filming Cosmopolis with David changed something in me. It gave me balls."
The film is based on the Don DeLillo novel about a billionaire who nearly loses everything, including his mind, in a day.
Before signing up to star in the film Pattinson admits he "spent time doubting myself.
He explained: "As soon as I read a script that I liked, I was working myself up, asking myself if I was good enough."
But now, he says: "I tell myself: 'F**k it! If they want to hire you, go!'."
Meanwhile, Cronenberg has insisted that he never doubted Pattinson as a leading man.
The director told Cinerepublic: "Yes I found him interesting in Twilight . . . I saw him in Little Ashes and Remember Me, and I am convinced that he could be my Eric Packer.
"It is a heavy role, he appears in each scene and I do not think I've ever done a movie before where the actor is always on the screen.
"The choice of an actor is a matter of intuition, there are no rules or instructions."
