Robert Pattinson chose acting to meet girls

The Twilight actor reveals his motivation behind his career choice

For some it's about the creative process, for others money and fame, but Robert Pattinson has admitted he started acting to meet girls.

"I wanted to meet girls!" said the British actor during an interview with US chatshow David Letterman "That was the main thing."

His plan seems to have worked, since Pattinson is rumoured to be dating his Twilight Saga co-star Kristen Stewart.

The penultimate instalment of the teen vampire thriller, Breaking Dawn Part 1, is released in the UK on November 18.
