Robert Pattinson has made no secret of the fact that he doesn't want his career to be defined by Twilight.

But while distancing himself from Edward Cullen is one thing, the actor might've taken a step too far when talking about his fans in a recent chat with Germany's Interview magazine.

He told the mag: “The real odd thing about this ‘Twilight’ target group is that they aren’t really teenagers. Most of them are older.

“Twilight has its own parallel world, its own fan culture that has been forming on the net since day one. And in an intense way that has never existed before. Sometimes I ask myself what these masses of people do the whole day. They sit in front of their computers and comment on anything having even remotely to do with Twilight.

“Suddenly everywhere I went people thought they already knew me,” he said. “They look at a photo of me and think they have a special relationship, a friendship, an affair with me—someone they haven’t met their whole life. That’s crazy…but I try to laugh it off.”

It's a little scathing, don't you think?
