Los Angeles: Actor Robert Pattinson has revealed that he battled with depression after his rise to fame with the success of ‘Twilight’ saga.

"I went through a big time of depression between 23 and 25. I couldn`t go where I wanted to go, I was in the tabloids every day and I didn`t have access to the roles I really wanted. I wanted more, on every level," quoted Pattinson as saying.

"I finally realised that you needed to earn this change I so desperately wanted. That one way or another, you had to suffer to be able to make it. I thought everything was going to be served on a plate, but that`s not how it works," he added.

Pattinson, 26, most recently starred in director David Cronenberg`s independent thriller `Cosmopolis`, which helped him to come out of his depression.

"When David Cronenberg offered `Cosmopolis` to me, I had never read anything as interesting for years," Pattinson continued.

The final instalment of the `Twilight` franchise, `Breaking Dawn: Part 2` is set to hit screens Nov 16 in the US.
