Robert Pattinson has revealed that he would love to star in a romantic comedy.

The Twilight star fancies hiding away his vampire fangs for something more light-hearted, but claimed he hasn't found anything perfect.

"I'd love to, but they are always just so rubbish - I mean like, I'd absolutely love to do it, but I've literally never read a good rom-com script," he told GMTV in an interview airing on March 29.

Robert, who stars in Remember Me with Pierce Brosnan and Emilie de Ravin, reckoned there's too much competition to be a romantic comedy king like Hugh Grant.

"I think it's such a typical career choice for me, as well, to be honest," he continued.

"If you do a big franchise thing - especially for English guys - you try and do a Hugh Grant part or something. Which I don't think would be the best idea for me... mainly because it's quite difficult to be Hugh Grant!"

:: Remember Me is released in cinemas on April 2.
