Robert Pattinson Wanted to Be the World’s Prettiest Rapper Growing Up

MC Sparkle in the house?

During his interview with Oprah Winfrey—which airs on Thursday—Twilight hunk Robert Pattinson reveals that he didn’t necessarily consider acting as his first career option. In fact, if things had gone differently, he might be spitting rhymes in the studio instead of thrilling us on the screen today:

“I used to want to be a rapper when I was, like, 14.”

Good thing his rapping skills apparently came up lacking, because otherwise we all would have been deprived of the glory of R-Pattz playing Edward Cullen. And, truth be told, we’re just not sure that he’d look good with a mouth full of bling-ed out grills—he’s just too sparkly as it is already.

Let’s hear it for solid decision-making. And feel free to offer your own rhymes in honor of R-Pattz in the comments section. And for all things Twilight-related, make sure to visit The Forks Report.
