Hollywood heartthrob Robert Pattinson is frightened by the “cult personality” that surrounds him and his ‘Twilight’ co-star Kristen Stewart after the success of the vampire romance.

The actor,who plays Edward Cullen in the blockbuster franchise,said he has struggled with the phenomenal success of the films,Contactmusic reported.

“Of course I am delighted that the ‘Twilight’ series is so successful. But the cult of personality that is around me and Kristen is a bit frightening.

“That is absolute madness,and you ask yourself,where do all these people come from? That’s a very bizarre situation,even a bit intimidating,” the actor said.

The 23-year-old star,who rose to global stardom with the surprise success of the vampire romance,revealed that he was once stalked by a crazy Spanish fan even before his ‘Twilight’ success.

“But a bad experience happened only once,but that was before ‘Twilight’. Two years ago,I was filming an independent film in Spain,and every day a girl stood in front of my apartment. She was a stalker,which was soon very unpleasant.”

Pattinson believes that the only good thing to come out of his instant fame is that he gets to stay in fancy hotels.

“You’re staying in fancy hotels with incredibly nice bathrooms. This is the best thing I can say about it.”

The actor has reprised his role in the second film ‘New Moon’,which has had a record breaking opening at the box office since its release on November 20.
