''Cosmopolis'' saved me from depression: Robert Pattinson

London, Nov 11 (PTI) Hollywood star Robert Pattinson says his much appreciated stint in vampire franchise "Twilight" left him struggling with depression for two years.

The 26-year-old actor, who is gearing up for the final installment of "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2", said he was saved from spiralling into depression when director David Cronenberg asked him to star in "Cosmopolis", reported Daily Mail.

"I went through a big time of depression between 23 and 25, I couldn''t go where I wanted to go. I was in the tabloids every day and I didn''t have access to the roles I really wanted. I wanted more, on every level," he said.

Pattinson found that while his "Twilight" co-stars Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner, were off working on other projects, he was stuck in a rut.

"I finally realised that you needed to earn this change I so desperately wanted. That one way or another, you had to suffer to be able to make it. I thought everything was going to be served on a plate but that''s not how it works," he added.
