Los Angeles - Robert Pattinson says most movie scripts are "shit".

The Twilight Saga star plays the lead role in David Cronenberg's new movie Cosmopolis and Robert revealed the script stood out for him because it was so well written in comparison to most others.

He told Total Film: "[With Cosmopolis] there was such a specific voice from the very beginning. It's just really well written. Most scripts are really shit and you're just thinking 'how can I make it better?' but this one, all you had to do was just say it. A really shitty actor could just sit there and say it and make it sound really good."

Robert rose to fame playing vampire Edward Cullen in the Twilight franchise and revealed he hopes to use his star power to make smaller movies that wouldn't otherwise get the funding to be made.

He explained: "When you get some kind of success quite quickly you have to pay for it somehow, pay your dues and stuff. I want to support the whole part of the industry that I like and got me interested in film.

"With the limited amount of power I have I would love to use it to get indies which never would be made or seen, hopefully seen. And also I just want seem cool!"
