Robert Pattinson blasts 'crazy' film age restrictions

Robert Pattinson has slammed film age restrictions as "crazy" and has claimed that violence is more damaging than sex for teens.

The 'Twilight Saga' heartthrob insists that adult movies shouldn't be subject to strict restrictions since most teenagers already have access to pornography on the internet

The 26-year-old actor currently stars as a billionaire embarking upon a violence-ridden 24 hour journey across Manhattan in David Cronenberg's 'Cosmopolis'.

"You're immediately in the highest rating with things to do with sex. But you can have violence. It's like, 'What?!' It's completely crazy," Contactmusic quoted him as telling the Sun.

"I don't think there's anything in 'Cosmopolis' that's particularly... there's nothing bad. I don't think there's anything that would have shocked me when I was 13. Especially when every single kid nowadays probably watches hardcore pornography on the internet. It's no worse - in fact, it's a lot better," he said.

Pattinson has a wild threesome in the film and shoots himself in the hand, but he insists that it's not as violent as people make out.

"I'm not worried about the violence or the sex or anything like that. 'Transformers' is more violent than 'Cosmopolis'," he added.
