Good news, Robert Pattinson fans: He’s not dating anyone, reports.

At least that’s what the Twilight star, who only days ago was seen getting cozy with co-star Kristen Stewart, wants Britain’s Daily Mirror to believe. “I don’t have a girlfriend,” claimed the actor. “I don’t know why.”

Pattinson, 23, appears surprised at this turn of events. “You always think you’re going to get more girls after you’ve made a movie and it never happens,” he insisted.

“You sit there and you’re like, ‘I’m a big movie star and I want to go out with some models,’ but I don’t know why that doesn’t happen.”

Pattinson offers a tip to the hopeful: He doesn’t “have a type.”

“It’s especially different in L.A. Most of the women there are actresses and by default that makes them a little bit nuts — not that that’s a bad thing,” he observed. “Whenever I get asked who my favourite celebrity crush is, I have no idea.”

When it comes to the attention he does manage to receive, Pattinson said, “Most of the girls are all pretty young, so it’s just kind of funny. But then you get the Twilight Moms who love you like moms! And you can take that too far. I mean, it could be ‘Edward breaks up Twilight family.’”

The sex-symbol image surprises him, adds. Originally he aimed to become a politician, though he did model, despite lacking athleticism.

“I always looked like a girl up until a few years ago, and because I never did any sports or anything I was always kind of gangly,” he said. “I was never really a good model.”

In fact, he concedes, “I was terrible at it. I wasn’t skinny enough to be a little waif and I didn’t want to work out to be a beefy guy, so I was always stuck between two things and so I never got any jobs.”
