Robert Pattinson fears of failure

The 26-year-old insists he stumbled into acting rather than setting out to make a career of it, and he has learned to use his phobia of failure to inspire him to greater success, reported Daily Star.

"I think as soon as you feel validated, you're a bad actor. You have to constantly feel that there's a 99 per cent chance of failure. Total failure. Devastating failure.

"You should feel like every single job is the potential where you're never going to get another job again. Not in a bad way - you should feel good about it, because then you're in it. It's all about living in the present," he said.
