Robert Pattinson stays young by acting

London: Robert Pattinson says it`s great being an actor because he doesn`t have to grow up like people in other careers and can delay being an adult.

The 25-year-old, who achieved worldwide success with his role as vampire Edward Cullen in the `Twilight Saga` film series said one of the main benefits of his job is that he can have fun at work every day, reported Contactmusic.

"I`m living a life I didn`t really know existed and I can kind of delay being an adult for a while! It`s fun. I get to meet really interesting people who think they are making something great," Pattinson said.

The actor recently finished shooting the final two `Twilight` movies and says he is now looking forward to starting a new chapter in his career.

"I`d be interested to see how I`m perceived in a couple of years.

I don`t know how to predict anything. Edward`s so specific, you can`t really get typecast. I mean, there are only so many parts that are benevolent vampires! It would be insane to do another one afterwards."
