Robert Pattinson reportedly doesn't like being famous.

The 27-year-old actor - who was catapulted to the spotlight in the 'Twilight' films as vampire Edward Cullen alongside his ex-girlfriend Kristen Stewart - isn't a fan of his celebrity status and gets agitated by the attention he receives.

A source told ''The cost of fame is the thing he and Kristen used to complain about all day and that hasn't changed at all for him.''

Pattinson is hoping to get involved in other aspects of filmmaking and is considering stepping behind the camera instead of fronting another film.

The source added: ''[He] is looking at a whole new approach to his future and is even considering going to theatre school to focus more on getting behind the camera.

''Rob's been talking to a lot of independent filmmakers and­ the last thing he wants to do is act in another blockbuster. He would like to direct a movie one day.''

Pattinson is set to hit the big screen in 2014's 'The Rover' and 'Maps to the Stars' which are in post-production and is currently filming 'Queen of the Desert' and 'Life'.
