When Twilight co-stars Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner were breaking away to work on other films, Rob felt so alone creatively.
He confesses to Première magazine: "I went through a big time of depression between 23 and 25, I couldn't go where I wanted to go, I was in the tabloids every day and I didn't have access to the roles I really wanted. I wanted more, on every level. I finally realized that you needed to earn this change I so desperately wanted. That one way or another, you had to suffer to be able to make it. I thought everything was going to be served on a plate but that's not how it works."
