Robert Pattinson almost quit Hollywood for a nomadic lifestyle

Press Trust of India  |  London 

Actor Robert Pattinson has revealed he considered ditching his home in favour of living in a camper van.

The "Twilight" star said when he is not shooting films he just goes around east on a pushbike and he almost made a Stealth van - a general white van which is a home in disguise - his full-time home.


However he decided against it because of issues, reported Contactmusic.

"I go around on my bike, so I'm basically a ghost. I nearly did it, I was 100 per cent going to live in a van, but not just any van - a stealth van! It's a special niche, not like living in a trailer," he said in an interview to Esquire magazine.

"Stealth vans look like a normal Transit van, so you can park on the street, put signs on saying you're a plumber or whatever and no one would notice. You can just leave in the middle of the night and, like, drive to Nebraska. I'd love that so much. And I was like, 'I'm still young, this is my chance..."

On why he never went through with it, he added, "Once you build a toilet and shower yourself, you can't get it insured and blah, blah, blah.
