Asked whether the intrusion has ever discouraged him from acting, Pattinson said: "Acting is the one thing you can control. If you give that up you're just a pawn in someone else's game. But I've definitely become a recluse.
"I hate getting photographed. So my life has contracted a lot. I only go to places with underground parking lots that sound stupid. But it means I don't have to deal with that anxiety."
The "Twilight" star says the paparazzi attention in London made him relocate to Hollywood, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
"If you're going out and you're a bit drunk, it's the law of averages ... it's just a matter of time before you punch someone in the face and that's a million dollars. That's why I can't live in London. I would love to live here, but there's no point," he said.
