Robert Pattinson has revealed his lifelong secret ambition to become a rapper called Big Tub.
The Twilight star appeared on NBC's Late Night With Seth Meyers where he chatted about the alternative career path he hopes could still open up one day.
Seth asked him: "Is it true, when you were younger you wanted to be a rapper?"
R-Patz replied: "Yeah 100%. I still kind of do. My rap name was Big Tub. I was very paranoid about my weight."
He went on to say he had made some recordings: "I didn't know how to scratch, so I used to pull up and down the zip on my hoody and record it. It sounds exactly like it."
Robert announced the full name of his act too: "It was called Big Tub And The Tappy Cats."
He said he still thinks about his weight, adding: "I got sick a couple of days ago and I was so excited about it, like, 'Next week I'm going to be so skinny.'"
The Rover actor also talked about his other lifelong dream, of having a younger brother.
He said of his two older sisters: "They always wished I was a little sister and I always wanted a little brother.
"They told me on my 18th birthday that my mum was pregnant, on April Fool's Day and I went to school just rejoicing and basking in the fact that I could have a mini me. I was so convinced it was the most disappointing day of my life when I came home."
And he said that when he first moved to LA he was friends "with all the hookers who lived down the street" because they were his neighbours.
