Twilight hunk Robert Pattinson has been in the media as of late, whether he has been dising Justin Bieber about his lies, talking about his co-stars or his upcoming movies. Previously, we have talked about Pattinson being scared to commit to a house because he lives from hotel to hotel, but when he talked to USA Today’s Andrea Mandell, we didn’t expect this. Get this: Pattinson is afraid of horses!

“I had to get knocked down by a horse,” Pattinson stated. “That was terrifying. It was just one split second but (it was) a fully grown stallion…I’m kind of relatively scared of horses as well. I’m just glad I didn’t have to ride any of them. I’m not particularly good at horse riding.”

Pattinson also opened up about the release of Breaking Dawn in late 2011: “The main story line is so far outside of the box,” he says. ”It’s really different from the other ones. There are some days on set just watching you go ‘How is this going to be PG-13?’” he said with a laugh. “It’s like totally ridiculous.”
