Think again.

Heart-throb Robert Pattinson has revealed a surprising ambition before he turned to acting. Seems one of his first career aspirations was to be a rapper.

“I used to want to be a rapper when I was, like, 14,” the British actor, now 24, said during an appearance on “The Oprah Winfrey Show”  with co-stars Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner, which is set to air on Thursday.

He recalled that he perfected his American accent by watching Hollywood movies. “But Kristen thinks I do the most terrible American accent.”

“No, no I don’t,” Stewart laughed in response. “Occasionally, some word will come out, and I’ll be like, ‘We don’t say that!’ ”

Rapper or vampire?  How do you prefer your Pattinson?
