Critics aren't the only ones wondering if Robert Pattinson can pull off the intense role in David Cronenberg's Cosmopolis, Rob himself was also. The actor admitted to the French pulication Premiere magazine (via Us Weekly) that he had his doubts about being able to do this role justice, but he eventually told himself, "F--- it! If they want to hire you, go!"

In an interview with the mag -- of which he also posed in a photo that he says is Cronenberg (A Dangerous Method, Eastern Promises) inspired -- the Twilight actor, 25, admits that this role stretched him, and even changed him in a way.

He confesses,

"Filming Cosmopolis with David changed something in me. It gave me balls."
He adds, "As soon as I read a script that I liked, I was working myself up, asking myself if I was good enough."

The film — which has Rob in every single scene — shows R-Pattz’s character Eric Packer with guns, nearly nude women and a few sexy suits. Cosmopolis is based on Don DeLillo’s 2003 novel, which follows a wealthy young man as he tries to get a haircut in New York City. While on his way to get his haircut, the character is met with multiple obstacles which keep him from getting his trim.

The movie hits theaters this year. Do you think R-Pattz can pull off the role? Check out the teaser below and let us know:

    You may be the biggest something but you are no Rob fan. It is a shame that so much of the world is so shallow and that the pressure for physical perfection is the most important thing. Fake boobs will never be real no matter what you pay for them. LOL

    I believe rob will be amazzing in this movie because he is a great actor and because Cronenberg believed in him he didn't need rob in order to make this movie amazing but he saw something others didnt and if that doesn't boost robs confidence i dont know what will. I can't wait to watch this movie
