Before he hit it big with his Twilight role, Robert Pattinson spilled to Seth Meyers on Tuesday's Late Night that he once had aspirations to become a rapper --and his hip-hop name is what Meyers calls "some real, hardcore sh**."
Confirming the reports that he once wanted to drop rhymes, Pattinson tells the host, "100 per cent. I still kind of do [want to be a rapper]. I was Big Tub, that was my rap name."
Explaining his alter ego, he adds, "I was very paranoid about my weight. I got quite sick in the last couple of days and I'm so excited about it. Next week I'm going to be so skinny!"
The 28-year-old actor was a bit more serious than expected about having a rap career. He even recorded! "I didn't know how to scratch so I used to pull up and down the zip on my hoodie and record it," Pattinson admitted. "It sounds exactly like it! [We were] Big Tub and the Tabby Cats."
Pattinson is currently on a busy press tour for his film The Rover, and he recently spoke to The Daily Beast about another super-popular actress known for a hit franchise -- The Hunger Games' Jennifer Lawrence.
"She's amazing. She's absolutely incredible," he gushed. "But also we're different types of people. She seems like she's super-confident -- and I don't have the kind of confidence. She glows. I think you can fit that into quite a few different areas. Whereas I've got a kind of sneak-through-the-cracks style."
