On moving away from his vamp days:
"It can be really difficult transition from something like 'Twilight.' Once people identify you with something like that it's hard to find your way out of it. And also, I mean, I'm not that easy to case because of my... physicality. I'm quite lanky. You can't exactly see me in a sports film or something, can you? I'm never going to play 'one of the guys.'"
On being in the public eye:
"Once you get photographed a lot it changes you. I remember when I first did Twilight I didn’t care about how I looked – there was less pressure. [But now] every time I appear somewhere, I think, 'I don't know how many more times I can do this.' Dressing up to go somewhere and be looked at - I get so nervous. Up until the second I have to leave, I'll get changed a million times. It's crazy. Literally just before I go I look in the mirror and think, 'You look like s***.' I start worrying about wrinkles. Honestly. Everyone who works with me knows they'll have to sit there and wait for me to go through my process of having a panic attack about how I look."
On posing for Dior:
"Before, I was so obsessed with thinking, 'People are going to think you're a sell out,' and now, of course, every single actor in the world has done one. In the past, I always said no to everything. I thought I'd be so judged for it. Dior came up and it felt right. It was a big decision - I've turned down plenty of others at the last minute before."
