London: Hollywood`s latest heartthrob Robert Pattinson bombards his friends with phone calls because he is desperate to have people to hang out with when he isn`t working.

The 24-year-old actor, who is dating his `Twilight Saga` co-star Kristen Stewart, admitted he often has to call people and asks them to let him go out with them because he hardly ever gets invited anywhere due to his hectic career, reported Sun online.

"I was thinking the other day that no one ever rings me up or anything. No one ever asks me to do anything. When I`m not working, I`m one of those people who calls up their entire phone book to say, `Hey, what are you doing? Are you doing anything tonight? Can I go with you?`

"I just hang there (in my hotel room) and get drunk. It`s terrible," said Pattinson.

The British actor has made no secret of the fact he is uncomfortable with fame and jokingly claimed he would feel safer if he was allowed to carry a gun.

"I want to get really good at fighting because then I can just walk down the street. There is something about it. Or just get a gun. I would feel a little bit more comfortable walking around with a Taser. But no, I mean, I try to avoid as much hassle as possible," he said.
