Robert Pattinson - Robert Pattinson looks for his niche

Subscribe to Robert Pattinson alerts

Robert Pattinson is looking for his career ''niche''.

The 27-year-old actor has a diverse range of projects in the pipeline, including 'Maps to the Stars' - which he describes as a''darkly comedic Hollywood satire ghost story'' - and he thinks it is important to experiment until he finds the type of movie which he is best suited to.

Robert - who is best known for playing vampire Edward Cullen in the 'Twilight Saga' - said: ''This year, I'm trying to see what my niche is.''

The British actor is the face of Dior Homme and he loved getting the chance to work with director Romain Gavra on the commercial for the brand.

He said in an interview with the Wall Street Journal: ''I like trying to do ambitious things. That's what got me really enthusiastic about the campaign, that [Dior] wasn't shying away from anything.''

The 'Bel Ami' actor was famously the subject of rumours about his poor personal hygiene in the past, but he insists he has now cleaned up his act thanks to working with Dior.

He said: ''I was a brush-your-teeth-and-have-a-shower kind of guy. I can't tell if it's because of my association with Dior or because I'm older, but I've started moisturising.''

He jokingly added: ''It's been a quite profound change in my life.''
