London: Actor Robert Pattinson says he "definitely" imagines becoming a father and admits he can sometimes be a "little control freak".

After getting engaged to FKA twigs, it`s certainly something the "Twilight" star has had on his mind while he enjoys the next step in his relationship, reports eonline.com.

Pattinson was asked by a German publication if he could "imagine becoming a father".

"Definitely, although I still do not know when. Therefore, I was so attracted by the role in `Life`," Pattinson told Jolie magazine via Thinking of Rob. 

"At my age, you do not get so many chances to play a father and certainly not one who leaves his family in the lurch."

He added that personally "I imagine it different, of course". 

Pattinson also opened up about his self-confidence in Hollywood. 

"Well, someone who voluntarily stands in front of a camera needs to have a bit self-confidence," he assured the publication. "Nevertheless, I am also shy. And a little control freak. Not the best combination for an actor, because the control has indeed the director?"

He added, "I`ve always had the feeling of having to prove myself as an actor, as a star, as a human being. This might have kept me more on the ground. Although I have often wished I had a bigger ego then I might have been able to enjoy the bustle a bit more."
