Robert Pattinson had previously struggled to land roles, spending two years unemployed before moving to Los Angeles in a bid to find work.

He was so desperate to get a job, he pretended to have attended London's prestigious Royal Academy of Dramatic Art (RADA) and Oxford University to impress potential employers.

He tells Britain's Daily Mirror, "I'd been unemployed for ages, and when I came to Los Angeles all the casting directors would ask what I'd been doing for the past few years. I'd say, 'Oh, I was at RADA' - if you've got an English accent you can get away with it. I'd say I went to Oxford, too. I did it for years. But it didn't work when loads of English people started moving to Los Angeles. So then I pretended to be American for a bit. When Twilight came out I still tried to pretend to be American but people thought I was insane, so I stopped."
