Teen heart-throb Robert Pattinson has revealed that he hates having coloured contact lenses put in for his role in the Twilight films.

Pattinson, who plays the role of Edward Cullen in the film adaptations of the Stephenie Meyer novels, told Entertainment Weekly about his aversion to the lenses.

"My God, I'll be glad to see the last of those. I actually want to get some kind of plastic explosive. I want to reanimate them into something so I can kill them," he said.

The 24-year-old went on to say that he finds it embarrassing that he still cannot insert the coloured contact lenses himself, as he has had to wear them so regularly over the past few years.

He told the magazine that all of the other actors in the Twilight Saga films have figured out how to put in their own lenses, but that he has to have two people holding him down to put them in.

A new book by Geoff Beattie, Get The Edge, serialised in the Daily Mail, claims that blue contact lenses can make people look more intelligent and attractive.
