Rob Pattinson Fears Hugh Grant Comparisons
Twilight star Robert Pattinson is refusing to sign up for any romantic comedy movies - because he fears he'll be hailed as the next Hugh Grant.
The British hunk, who shot to international fame in the vampire franchise, has been offered a number of slushy roles, but has been unimpressed with every script he's received so far.
And he's worried that if he heads down the rom-com route, he will draw comparisons to fellow Brit heart-throb Grant.
Speaking on Britain's Gmtv, Pattinson says, "I'd love to (star in a romantic comedy) but they're always just so rubbish. I mean It's like... I'd absolutely love to do it but I've literally never read a good rom-com script... I think it's such a typical career choice for me as well to be honest - if you do a big franchise thing, especially for English guys, you know, (it's natural to) try and do a Hugh Grant part or something, which I don't think would be the best idea for me, mainly because it's quite hard to be Hugh Grant."
