London: Hollywood heartthrob Robert Pattinson says that he was plagued by insecurities during the filming of `The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn` because he had to take his shirt off.

The 25-year-old British hunk said that his most anxious moment on set was when he was asked to bare his torso, reported a website.

"The thing I was most nervous about was taking my shirt off. I`ve managed to have my shirt on the whole series. In the book, (my character Edward is shirtless) almost every
three pages. (I thought) `How can I wear a T-shirt in the sea?" Pattinson said.

He also warned fans not to expect too much from the shirtless scenes.

"I don`t want to get anyone`s hopes up. I look like an inflatable frankfurter in some of those (scenes)," he said.
