Robert Pattinson has joked that he fears the day the Twilight hype dies down.
The 23-year-old, who attracts throngs of screaming fans wherever he goes thanks to his starring role in the vampire films, admitted: "If it suddenly dies down and suddenly no-one is interested ... yeah, it is worrying - it's scary to think that it all might just fundamentally stop after the Twilight thing's finished."
The actor, who is currently starring in drama Remember Me with Pierce Brosnan, added: "When I did Twilight, I had no idea it was going to be so big."
He went on: "I didn't know they were going to make the sequels afterward. ... But I don't really have any regrets about it. It's just, you can't. There's nothing you can do about it."
R-Patz also refused to say he could be classed as an Idol.
"I don't really know if I am [an idol]," he said. "It's still just the sort of character that people like a lot. I try and avoid promoting myself like that cause otherwise you end up with a huge burden of responsibility."
