Robert Pattinson Freaked Out By Fame

The "Twilight Star" dishes in a cover interview with Vanity Fair

It seems like fame is getting to Robert Pattinson.

In an interview with Vanity Fair, the Twilight actor opened up about his anxieties, including his dislike for flying because of overly-ecstatic fans at the airport and how he hides in his trailer watching reruns of "Two and a Half Men."

"I don't know what's wrong with me," the teen idol told Vanity Fair's Nancey Jo Sales. "I haven't any memory. I can't write. All I can do is sign my name. I tried to write the other day--it looked like I was writing in Braille. [writes something]. See? It looks like spiders have written it."

R-Pattz, who is currently promoting his new flick "Water for Elephants" has raked in $27.5 million in 2010 alone for his portrayal of angsty vampire Edward Cullen, the magazine reports. He  bravely holds up an alligator on his shoulders in the great outdoors on Vanity Fair's cover.

But in reality, the British hunk doesn't get out much. R-Pattz also describes the effects of living in a bubble to shield himself of the mobs of people and Twi-hards who cause chaos in the streets if they know he's there.

"I've just kind of stopped doing everything," he said. "I never change the channel in my trailer. I just watch reruns of House of Payne and Two and a Half Men. I love Cops--I think it's my favorite TV show."

In her cover interview with Vogue two issues ago, his co-star, Kristen Stewart, had a similar sentiment towards celebrity. Although Pattinson refused to confirm rumors about his relationship with the starlet, he admitted the speculation was "traumatic."

"There's no way to eloquently put this," Stewart told Vogue. "I just can't go to the mall. It bothers me that I can't be outside very often."

Pattinson's interview is peppered with comments like "I'm just so dried up," and "I don't really know myself that well." But like Stewart, Pattinson recognizes there are a lot worse problems in the world other than being rich and famous.

Admitting at points in the interview he sounds "snobby" and that he feels "boring" for talking about fame all the time, he said "every time you read about someone famous talking about being famous, you're like, 'Shut the f--- up."
