London: Robert Pattinson has said he always dated older women when he was a teenager because he found them more exciting.

"Every girl I went out with in my teens was older than me. My first girlfriend was 26, I was 17. Women who were older always seemed more exciting," Pattinson told Elle magazine.

The 24-year-old, who is in a relationship with his "Twilight Saga" co-star Kristen Stewart, however, said that dating older women irritated many people, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

"I used to think I was a bit of a bad-ass when I was younger. I liked that it annoyed people how much younger I was. I liked walking into a room with a woman and people looking at us and thinking, `They do not look right together`," he said.
