Twilight star Robert Pattinson says he is not as big as Leonardo DiCaprio in Hollywood, and it is difficult for him to get roles.

In an interview on CBS Sunday Morning show, the Harry Potter actor also confessed that his movies haven't made money of late, reports Daily Mail.

Pattinson also said that it is just exciting to have a job where "you're allowed to consistently break the walls of the box around you."

Did you know: Robert Pattinson was nearly fired from 'Twilight'!

"It's not like, 'Oh, I'll come down from an ivory tower to be….' I mean, these roles are hard for me to get; it's not like I'm, like, Leo (DiCaprio) or something. The only thing that being famous really helps in is getting financing for your movies," he said.

The actor also said that these days "the movies I do are weird and they don't make a lot of money a lot of the time."

"I always think that at some point karma is like, 'Oh, that's all your luck run out, so a whole bunch of bad stuff's gonna happen'," he added.

After a stint as Cedric Diggory in Harry Potter And The Goblet Of Fire, the actor got popular for a five-film run co-leading the Twilight saga opposite Kristen Stewart and Remember Me. He has lately done small and art films like Good Time.
