But on Tuesday, that description could be taken quite literally.
The Twilight star was photographed in Toronto filming scenes for his upcoming drama Cosmopolis in which he gets ambushed, hit in the face with a pie, and then chases off photographers.
Cosmopolis, directed by David Cronenberg [History of Violence, Crash], follows multimillionaire Eric Parker, played by Pattinson, 25, who intially sets out to get a haircut, but ends up on a 24-hour odyssey across Manhattan.
The film, due out in 2012, also stars Jay Baruchel and Paul Giamatti.
