R-Patz says he won’t do any action films

Twilight star ROBERT PATTINSON has ruled out the idea of signing up to a blockbuster action movie - because he has no desire to cash in on his popularity.

The British hunk has become a megastar since landing the role of vampire Edward Cullen in the hugely successful Twilight franchise, but he insists he's most content portraying "weirdos" in independent films.

He tells Vanity Fair magazine, "There's no point (doing an action blockbuster) - I mean, I don't have any material desires at all. I wear the same clothes every single day. I don't buy anything. And I don't go out anymore either!"

Instead, Pattinson has chosen a low-budget Western based on the book Bel-Ami by Guy de Maupassant as his next movie project, playing a man who "thinks like an animal" and "just rips off and screws over all of his friends".

He says, "(When you play a weirdo), you can always have an excuse... 'He's a weirdo!'"
