Robert Pattinson has said that he thinks his loyal fanbase are unfairly labelled as "crazy" in their dedication to the star and the ‘Twilight’ franchise.

Speaking to the BBC, Pattinson said:

"People put down ‘Twilight’ fans, but yesterday I got given on the red carpet in Berlin all these books from people who are lined up in the rain and are probably judged by everyone to be crazy.

"I got a signed first edition of the Martin Amis book, ‘Money’; a Lawrence Ferlinghetti book; the new [Michel] Houellebecq book. All these people come up and give what they've been reading and found interesting. This is not giving you teddy bears!"



On whether they’d like his new film, the talky futuristic David Cronenberg film 'Cosmopolis', he added:

"Some of them will just want you to play vampires, but most people don't want you to repeat yourself. So hopefully they'll like it."
