R-Patz addicted to reading gossip about himself

Robert Pattinson has admitted that although he hates talking about his private life, he can't stop reading about himself in gossip magazines.

The Twilight star compared his love for gossip to an "addiction".

"Yeah, I read it. It's my life. You sort of want to read it. You feel like you need to read it. It's one of those things where you keep picking the scab," the Daily Express quoted him as saying
"You know you shouldn't be doing it. But it's a weird kind of addiction. You desperately want to stop," he said.

The British heartthrob has been making headlines since shooting to fame after starring in the vampire franchise, but the tabloid frenzy actor reached a peak last month when his co-star and long-time girlfriend Kristen Stewart confessed to an affair with married director Rupert Sanders.
Despite the scandal, the 26-year-old the actor, who kept his interview schedules intact to promote 'Cosmopolis', has refused to talk about his romantic problems.

He insisted that he has "never been interested in trying to sell" details of his personal life.
