Actor Robert Pattinson, widely known for playing the vampire heartthrob Edward Cullen in the Twilight movies, said on Late Night With Seth Meyers on Wednesday that he wanted to be a rapper when he was a kid.

The 28-year-old Pattinson said that his stage name was Big Tub.

“What, did you pick last?” the late night host joked.

Patterson said that he even record some songs – with crafty solutions to create studio sound effects.

“I didn’t know how to scratch, so I used to pull up and down the zipper on my hoodie,” he said.

Pattinson was on the show to promote The Rover, a drama with Guy Pearce that opens in theaters on June 20.
