Pattinson has said that as a child, his big sisters Elizabeth and Victoria would dress him up as a girl and call him Claudia. The experience seemed to help his modeling career. "When I first started I was quite tall and looked like a girl, so I got lots of jobs, because it was during that period where the androgynous look was cool," says Pattinson. "Then, I guess, I became too much of a guy, so I never got any more jobs. I had the most unsuccessful modeling career."
