R Patz's Biggest Fear: Being Forgotten

Robert Pattinson recently sat down for a revealing interview with CBC Television's George Stroumboulopoulos to promote his new film Cosmopolis, where the British heartthrob talked about everything from arguing with Adele, to being naturally shy and his worries about being eventually forgotten.
"I was having this argument with Adele, which is probably the most ridiculous thing I've ever said," Robert recalls. "I was like, 'you can really just reach for it!,' and she's just like, 'wait, you do realize I'm like the biggest female-selling artist ever?,'" he jokes. "And for some reason I just like decided to get into an argument with her about it ... [I woke up] really really regretting everything I said."
About how his insane level of fame has made normal human interaction more difficult for him, he claims that nothing much has changed since he's always been a little bit of a hermit.
"I'd be one of those people desperate to go to a party, but when they go to the party, they just stand there in the corner with the people they came with and refuse to acknowledge that anyone else was there," he laughs. "I don't really miss anything."
As for life after Twilight and the "second act" of his career, it turns out his biggest fear is no longer being relevant.
"I'm just worried about people saying, 'What happened to that guy?," he admits. "And also you want to do something at least a little worthwhile with what kind of power you've been given --through luck-- and not just try to extend the same thing for as long as possible. I'm not really scared of it going away at all."
