Robert Pattinson thinks Justin Bieber will be okay.

The Twilight Saga star worries about a lot of young stars and thinks most of them need therapy, but believes the Heartbreaker hitmaker, 20, is well-equipped to cope with the pressures of fame and success.

The 27-year-old actor said: "When you see these kids, there is only one way: you either get in therapy now or become a serial killer, or kill yourself. I mean, you can see it really early on - it's terrifying."

Asked about Justin, he said: "I've met him before, though, on his party bus. I've met him a couple of times. He's all right."

The British actor feels lucky that he was able to live out his teenage years away from the spotlight and thinks it helped him not to fall off the rails.

He told Vanity Fair at the Cannes International Film Festival: "I did Harry Potter when I was like 17, and nothing really happened after that. I mean, I made loads of money compared to anyone my age - it was incredible. But I mean, then I just did little TV things afterwards. But I got to live from 18 to 21, you get your own apartment and basically I didn't star in Twilight until 21. It's different because you're still young, but you've had a life beforehand. Where as if you are 10, it's a totally different thing."
