The British actor hates having the lenses put into his eyes to transform his appearance into that of his ‘Twilight Saga’ character, vampire Edward Cullen, and would love to find a way to “kill” them now his work on the film series is almost complete.

Speaking about the contact lenses, he said: “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.

“It’s so embarrassing for me - after so many years, it’s still a process every single morning. Everybody else has figured out how to do it, and then there’s two people holding me down because I can’t do it myself.”

Robert, 24, admits he feels like he has been working on the ‘Twilight Saga’ series of films his “whole life" and the actor – who has been dating Kristen Stewart, his co-star in the franchise, since they met on set in 2008 – is hopeful the interest in his personal life will die down once the final two movies, ‘The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Parts I and II’, have been released.

He told the new issue of Entertainment Weekly magazine: "All the gossip stories won't work - they're always combined with ‘Twilight’, so once that's done and it can't be combined with the promotion of the film, I think it will end.”
