Pretty girls motivated Pattinson to join acting school

London: Robert Pattinson, who is dating ‘Twilight Saga’ co-star Kristen Stewart, says a chance to meet pretty girls was one of the motivational factors for him to join acting school.

"I suppose it was a variety of things - the pretty girls? There was a theatre around the corner of my house. I guess it was something I always wanted to do, but I thought it was pretty pretentious - I didn`t mind the kids that were acting at school but I wanted to do it secretly outside the school," quoted him as saying.

"I just liked the environment. I worked backstage for about three years and just watched everything and then I did a couple of plays and I got an agent from one of the plays, totally randomly," he added.
