Twilight star Xavier Samuel claims he doesn’t “tailor his appearance” to look like the British hunk Robert Pattinson.
Xavier, 26, was pictured at the Flickerfest short film festival at Bondi Beach in Sydney, Australia.
He was there to promote his new drama Drowning – and he won over one fan, model Lara Bingle, who was in the packed audience.
Speaking before the event, the Aussie actor, who appears in the third Twilight film, Eclipse, said it was a compliment to be compared to Robert Pattinson, described as a “good-looking guy”.
But he added: “I don’t really, like, tailor my appearance to look like him.
“I actually think we’re really quite different.”
Lara, fiancée of Aussie international cricketer Michael Clarke, is one of Bondi’s most glamorous residents.
The third Twilight film, Eclipse, is released later this year.
Xavier, originally from Adelaide, South Australia, plays a young vampire called Riley in the film.
He is staying with his brother Benedict while he hangs out in Sydney.
