"I've never actually said this before. I was stealing porno magazines and selling them at school," he told Howard Stern. "No one knew at all what to do with them, though... I'd sell them for a lot of money."

"I used to go in and take, like, one or two, and then put them in my bag. I was in my school uniform when I was doing it, and it was kind of risky," he continued. "At the end, I got so cocky that I would take the entire rack."

He finally got caught stealing the magazines by a store employee.

"I remember the guy who worked in the store shouting, like, 'Hey!' and then my two friends ran off, and I turned around, like, 'What?' I walked back up to him. I hadn't zipped up my bag," he explained. "This guy is pulling out all these porno magazines -- and it was when porn used to have, like, VHS tapes in the plastic sheet with it -- and he's pulling all these things out, and I was sitting there humiliated with all the old people looking at me disgusted."

Pattinson said the man told him that he would either call the cops or his parents and Pattinson begged him to call his parents. But it didn't end there, because the man then told his school that he had been stealing and selling the magazines. "Basically, a couple of days later, everything fell down," he said. "Basically every single one of my friends snitched on me, literally, across the board."

During his interview with Stern, the two also discussed how Pattinson was almost fired from Twilight for not smiling enough.

"I was very serious. I thought at the time – I was 21 – if you were going into a relationship with someone, the way to make it really intense was if you could barely talk to each other, you could barely touch each other, incredibly serious all the time," Pattinson shared. "Everyone was like, 'No, it should be happy and having fun! That's what people want!' ...Now the whole series is known as a brooding thing. But I remember the producers giving me a copy of the book, and every single instance where my character smiled, they'd highlighted. I got a different color highlighter and highlighted all the times he frowned."

The actor said he was later told by his agent to change his behavior or be let go. "I came back after lunch and I was like 'Hi! Look at me, I wanna keep my job!'" he joked. "I was probably going a little too miserable, so some kind of compromise was OK."

The heartthrob also opened up about whether or not he's engaged to FKA Twigs and how he tries to protect his relationships from the "Twilight crazies." See what he had to say in the video above.
