Robert Pattinson bored with Twilight

Robert Pattinson is happy The Twilight Saga is almost complete.

The British actor - who has become an international heartthrob for his role as vampire Edward Cullen in the hit movie franchise - admits working on the series can be 'boring' and he is delighted he will soon finish work on the final installment, Breaking Dawn, which will be split into two films.

He said: "It can get a little boring. The good news is that the whole thing is done in seven months."

The 24-year-old London born star - who is in a relationship with co-star Kristen Stewart - admits he still feels "bothered" by other people's opinions of him and admits he is tired of reading about himself.

He added in an interview with The Times: "Kristen is better about dealing with photographers than I am. I've learnt to let it go a bit, but I'm still really bothered by it. The more you are exposed, the more people irrationally hate you, I think we reached a point a peak with New Moon where the stories became so saturated into the culture that it started to feel normal. It's like the tabloids don't know what to write any more because they've used up all their scandals."

Despite admitting he is bored by the films the actor recently expressed his delight at the latest installment of the series, The Twilight Saga: Eclipse.

He enthused: "I've seen a very early cut. It's good. It's different. It's really different, like, it's kind of serious.

"All the kinds of fight scenes that are in New Moon... they're real fights now in Eclipse. They're not, like, fantasy things. It's like a horror film!"
