Pattinson can’t cook

The ‘Twilight Saga’ actor Robert Pattinson admits he often craves home-cooked food but because his culinary abilities are so limited, he has to rely on room service in hotels.

He said: “In London recently, my hotel had really good room service and I just ate the same thing every day – chicken tikka! I crave a home-cooked meal sometimes, but I only know how to make a piece of toast.”

The British star also admitted spending so much time staying in hotels has made him lazy.

He explained: “Hotels have made me more lazy, you can throw the towel on the floor and someone picks it up, and there’s a mini bar.”

The actor – who first found fame playing Cedric Diggory in ‘Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire’ – also spoke about how much he enjoyed fame before the ‘Twilight Saga’ made him a global superstar.

He added: “There was a really good period just before the first Twilight film came out and I went to an LA club and said, ‘Rob Pattinson – I think I’m on someone’s guest list,’ and he said, ‘Oh, it’s fine.’

“It’s strange, you’ve been refused entry to everywhere for years and all of a sudden all the doors are open to you. Then, four months later, you don’t even want to go to clubs!”
