During a chat with comedian Jordan Firstman for Interview, Pattinson said he's constantly thinking he's going to spend his life "unemployed and desperate."
Pattinson also opened up about why he'll only take on parts he's truly passionate about.
"I have a deep, deep fear of humiliation," he said.
Despite being a movie star beloved around the world, Robert Pattinson has the same self-doubts and anxieties most of us share.
"The Batman" star revealed this side of himself while chatting with comedian Jordan Firstman for Interview. During the conversation, Pattinson opened up about a topic he says he thinks about often: his place in society.
"I'm constantly thinking that you're just going to spend the vast majority of your life unemployed and desperate and kind of feeling like you're a total failure," Pattinson said. "I think that's just what life is."
Firstman responded: "If Robert Pattinson is saying that, there is no hope for anyone to ever be satisfied."
But Pattinson further elaborated, explaining that he feels this way due to the sporadic nature of being a working actor, a career that lacks job security.
"I don't know, I feel like you're specifically at a maximum most of the time you're doing a job and you're employed for three months," he said. "That's the most stressful thing in the world."
That may be a reason why he'll only take on roles he's passionate about. Pattinson told Firstman later in the conversation why he's driven to be on projects he believes are good.
"I have a deep, deep fear of humiliation," he said. "And also, you sort of know it's down to you. You can say it's a shitty script or the director's a dick or blah, blah, blah, but at the end of the day, no one's going to care about the reasons."
"You're the one who everyone's going to say is lame," he continued. "And the vast majority of people will say you're lame even when you tried your best."
Pattinson will star in the sequel to "The Batman," which is currently slated to hit theaters in 2025.
