Robert Pattinson found Twilight fatherhood strange

Robert Pattinson has admitted that he found it strange to play a father in Twilight: Breaking Dawn - Part 2.

His character Edward Cullen and wife Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart) become parent to a half-vampire, half-human child.

Discussing the change in Edward, Pattinson told MTV News: "For Edward, he kind of just started to relax in [Breaking Dawn - Part 1], and also, he's a father.

"I have an 11-year-old kid in this. It's completely different; he's like an adult.

"It's really strange, and it's kind of hitting me at this period [in my life] when I'm thinking, 'Oh, I'm not a kid anymore,' when I'm playing it, so it's a strange experience, suddenly making that transition to playing fathers of 11-year-olds.

"I've been playing a 17-year-old for five years."

The 26-year-old admitted that he found it hard to adjust to all the attention his role in Twilight brought.

Pattinson said that he was helped by his co-stars in the films.

He said: "I was incredibly insecure at the beginning. I had never done an American movie before, and everyone was more experienced than me pretty much - even the people who hadn't done anything seemed more experienced than me - so, yeah, it felt very foreign to everyone, but it's changed as it's gone on.

"These are the people I've known for the longest in LA."
