Hollywood star and heartthrob of many Robert Pattinson may be a well-known face but Pattinson had almost decided to quit acting in the initial few years. 

In a new interview, Pattinson has revealed that he nearly quit acting before he starred in 'Twilight' because his audition for the movie went so badly.

"It was the scene when (Edward) had a guitar ... my agent was like, `Take your guitar into the audition.` I just walked in and they were like, `Oh. You brought a guitar. Do you want to play us a song,` and I was like, `No. This is the worst decision I ever made`. I was saying no and they were like, `You just brought a guitar just to hold it? Why did you bring a guitar in?` My entire confidence just s**t the bed," Pattinson said in the podcast. 

"The audition was one of the worst auditions I did in my whole life. I remember calling my parents and saying, `I`m done, I can`t torture myself anymore,` and the next day I got a `Twilight` audition."

Before 'Twilight', Pattinson shot to fame in the 'Harry Potter' and the actor says he loved the environment on set as it was "very friendly family" and everyone got along well. 

"It was a really nice environment on 'Harry Potter'. Even compared to the movies I`ve done since then, it was very protective. The way the kids were treated ... In 'Harry Potter' they were at school and they were kind of doing work at the same time ... It felt like a very friendly family environment," said the actor.
