Male stripping aside, it turns out Robert Pattinson also had aspirations to be a rapper.

While appearing on Late Night With Seth Meyers, The Rover star recalled his humble years before he made it big in Twilight -- when he was just a fresh face in living in Los Angeles who befriended Hollywood hookers and dreamt of becoming a slightly chubby rapper. Ah, those were the days.

"I still kind of do," the actor quipped about his dream job. "[I've wanted to be] a rapper named Big Tub."

"That's my rap name," he explained. "I was very paranoid about my weight."

According to Pattinson, who also said he "used to be friends with all the hookers" when he first moved to Hollywood, his rap career didn't take off because he, well, sucked.

"I didn't know how to scratch so I used to pull up and down the zipper of my hoodie," he said. "It sounds exactly like it!"
