The star of the hit Twilight film franchise has shed some light on the contact lenses he wears during each film.
Robert Pattinson, who plays the role of Edward Cullen in the hit movies based on novels by Stephanie Meyer, said that putting in the contact lenses helps to get him into the role for playing a vampire, Zap2It reported.
However, the actor joked that this is not necessarily for the right reason, as he is not a fan of the products.
At an LA press conference, the actor stated: "It makes me miserable the minute I put them in."
Pattinson is not the only one to use contact lenses to help transform him into a sinister character in recent months, as Jackie Earle Haley recently revealed that contact lenses were a key part of his transformation into horror icon Freddy Krueger in the remake of A Nightmare on Elm Street.
