Robert Pattinson Questions Good Looks, May Have Body Dysmorphia

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Have you seen the new set of Robert Pattinson Dior ads? They make it rather clear: The actor is smoking!

But try telling that to Robert Pattinson's harshest critic: Robert Pattinson!

In the new issue of InStyle UK, The Twilight Saga stud comes across like ex-girlfriend Kristen Stewart, dour... reflective... somber... questioning the same looks that leave young women screaming in the streets upon his appearance.

"Maybe I have body dysmorphia," he wonders. "I’m quite lanky. You can’t exactly see me in a sports film or something, can you? I’m never going to play ‘one of the guys."

But, come on, Robert. You must be aware you're handsome, right?

“It depends, sometimes," he says. "But I’m weird about my looks. Once you get photographed a lot it changes you. I remember when I first did Twilight I didn’t care about how I looked – there was less pressure."

And now?

"Everyone who works with me knows they’ll have to sit there and wait for me to go through my process of having my panic attack about how I look.”

And while he's only 27, with a lot of life and a long career ahead of him, Robert was asked by the magazine how he wants to be remembered. As a sizzling stud muffin? Not exactly.

"I don’t know," he says. "I guess I’d want them to say I’m a really good friend."

Feast your eyes below on a couple Robert Pattinson photos from the InStyle spread and ask yourself: How can this guy question his looks?!?

Rob is very handsome. He was cute as a teenager, but manhood becomes him. Yes he is sooooo good looking. I truly hope he's as nice as people say. I feel for him living in a fish bowl and he and Kristen had no peace. I understand the relationship ending. I don't think anyone could have survivedthe media on slot and in your face 24/7. Sad they couldn't make it. But the world is their oyster and great things are to come yet!
