Robert Pattinson wishes he only worked one day a week and can’t stand working out to prepare for his roles. The ‘Water for Elephants’ actor loved his early career when he had more time to relax and indulge in his favourite leisurely pursuits.
He said: “My ideal job would be one day a week. When I first started acting, I’d get one job a year that lasted three months and then I’d do nothing the rest of the time but I’d have enough money to survive.” “I’d read the papers every day, get in a lot of DVDs. That was great. I’ve got simple tastes.”
Robert also admitted he hates having to work out and does as little as possible if it isn’t necessary for a role. Speaking of his preparations for shirtless scenes, he explained to Britain’s Elle magazine: “I’ll be going to the gym for four hours a day. I don’t eat at all except for protein shakes. But I don’t understand how you could maintain that all your life. After the scene’s done, I don’t work out again. It’s a ridiculous idea that you’re not a proper actor if you don’t have a six-pack.”
I guess we won’t see Rob promoting any bodybuilding contests anytime soon.
