London: ‘Twilight’ star Robert Pattinson says he is grateful to his fans for their good wishes over his personal crisis.

The 26-year-old hit headlines last month after it was revealed that his girlfriend Kristen Stewart cheated on him with her "Snow White and the Huntsman" director Rupert Sanders.

The news sparked an outpouring of emotion from fans and Pattinson has now said he is happy to have their support, reported Daily Star online.

"I guess if people think they are worried about you, it`s sweet. It`s kind of odd... But at the same time, the world is a pretty cruel place, so whatever inspires people to suddenly feel this kindness, hopefully they`ll look at themselves," Pattinson said.

"They will look at their own lives and realise, `I have the ability to empathise with people! Hey, I`ve learned something!`," he added.
