Robert Pattinson: Simon Cowell would never be able to mould me and my music into a brand
Rob, whose new film Cosmopolis is out this month, is a talented musician and hit the studio to lay down some 'guitar-based' tracks last year.
'I am never going to be an artist that Simon Cowell can mould into a brand,' says Rob, 26, reports the Daily Star.
'I only play what I like, and I guess the issue might be that it wouldn't sell records.'
Though Rob doesn't fancy being an X Factor contestant, he wouldn't mind being one of the judges.
I think it would be amazingly cool to be a judge on The X Factor,' R-Pattz told us.
It would be one of the best things ever to get paid for handing out Simon Cowell-style insults for a day.
I wouldn't want to be one of the nice guys.
'I'd want to be like Simon - otherwise it's no fun.
I don't think he's rude, I just think he's painfully honest, which is what makes him so good.'
