The Cosmopolis star also mentioned people wrongly assume he's not going to be smart just because he's been in teen movies. "It is surprising the amount of people who think I"m going to be really dumb. I think they think anyone who has done teen movies is just an idiot."

Then Robert coyly added, "I don't know, maybe I am. Some of the best actors, if you talk to them, they're not the smartest people in the world."

Dare we say the nickname, R-Patz sounded pretty fueled in the piece by naysayers. "Nothing ever matters to me apart from the people with negative opinions. That's literally it. That always drives me on to the next thing."

He added, "It's funny, you just focus on them and then the next movie. That's the only thing you're thinking about when it comes out."

What do you think about his comments? Do you like the R-Patz nickname or think he should have a new one? Sound off below!
