His nickname as a boy was Patty. His sisters used to dress him up as a girl and introduce him as Claudia.
Who are we talking about? None other than that dreamy blood-sucker Edward Cullen -
It was all part of growing up as a shy boy in a cozy Victorian home in London's Barnes neighborhood. The current issue of Life Style magazine examines Pattinson's earliest days before he became the "Twilight" hottie.
“Rob’s gobsmacked [British for astounded] by all the attention he’s getting,” his aunt,
, tells the magazine. “He’s very cool about it all, but he can’t believe it either.”
Pattinson himself says that all the attention he gets now is "mind-bending."
“You do tend to get a little bit paranoid when you’re walking down the street and looking around, just in case you’re getting mobbed by teenage girls," he says.
The magazine has even more childhood pics.
