The 26-year-old actor admits he gets a lot more negative attention from people back in the UK since appearing in the `Twilight Saga` film series, but can understand their responses because he used to behave in the same way.
He said: "I used to be able to be in England and be fine. No one had any idea who I was. It came later in England.
"Now it`s relatively similar [to the US]. But I get a lot more abuse in England. That`s just a general English attitude. I did the same thing to famouspeople. It`s just your instinct.."
Despite his wealth and fame, Robert - who recently reunited with his co-star Kristen Stewart after a brief split when she admitted cheating on him with married director Rupert Sanders - insists he isn`t extravagant and doesn`t splash out on many luxuries.
He told The Sun newspaper: "Fortunately I don`t really have any vices and I don`t have any extravagant fantasies like buying a yacht or something like that.
"And I`m such a bad driver that I can`t even contemplate buying a great sports car."
