Meet Robert Pattinson: Unsuccessful Model

Robert Pattinson has found plenty of success as an actor, but before that, he tried his hand as a model as a 12-year-old. Newsflash: it didn’t go so well. He wasn’t very good at it and it obviously wasn’t the right path for him at the time.

From GQ Germany:

“I [modeled] to meet girls. I was still young. I did it without a plan for a career of any form.”

“When I first started I was quite tall and looked like a girl, so I got lots of jobs, because it was during that period where the androgynous look was cool.

“Then, I guess, I became too much of a guy, so I never got any more jobs. I had the most unsuccessful modeling career.”

Things have obviously improved for him since then, and he’s now modeling for Dior Homme, so every cloud has a silver lining, I suppose. That picture above is hilarious, though. Is he… modeling the scarf? Showing off his boyish body?
