Robert Pattinson may be brave enough to confront mobs of screaming Twi-hards, but he is terrified to display his comedic chops. The Hollywood heartthrob chatted with Kelly Ripa and special guest host Seth Meyers on Live With Regis and Kelly this morning about his fear of hosting Saturday Night Live.

"It's terrifying," Rob explained to Seth, an SNL vet, who was encouraging the Twilight star to take on the hosting challenge.

"It is scary," Seth replied. "But then it's really worth it when you do it."

Rob continued to claim that he wasn't funny, but Seth suggested he would be very funny in a bit with Jimmy Fallon — who features the hilarious "Robert is Bothered" spoofs on his hit late night talk show.

Rob explained that in the one spoof he did with Jimmy on his show, he wasn't trying to be funny.

"That's how it's going to work," Seth quipped.

Kelly also tried to convince Rob to face his SNL fears, but the actor, who is currently promoting his film Water for Elephants, was not interested.
