RPatz sounds like a workable rap name, but it isn’t the one Robert Pattinson would choose for himself.

The heartthrob formerly known as Edward Cullen went on Late Night Tuesday and revealed his early career aspirations. Pattinson told host Seth Meyers that acting wasn’t his original plan; instead he wanted to be a rapper.

“You wanted to be a rapper?” Meyers questioned.

“Yeah, a 100 percent,” Pattinson seriously replied. “My rapper name is Big Tub.”

Big Tub? Not MC Sparkly Skin? Meyers wasted no time poking fun at the actor’s alter ego. Pattinson said he chose the name Big Tub because he felt self-conscious about his weight during his younger years. Hopefully, the teeming ranks of Twihards have proved to RPatz that he can put those worries behind him.
