London, Jan 24 (Calcutta Tube) ‘Twilight’ star Robert Pattinson has been approached by music moghul Simon Cowell to sign a major record deal.
The young actor has even been told he can basically write his own cheque, reports thesun.co.uk.
Other record companies have got wind of the offer and a bidding war has broken out.
Pattinson, who plays vampire Edward Cullen in the ‘Twilight’ films, is a keen musician who plays piano and guitar and has even contributed songs to the movie’ soundtracks.
Being appreciated also for his singing, record bosses reckon his voice could turn out to be a big money-spinner.
‘Robert is reluctant to be turned into a pop star and takes his music very seriously. He is a bit wary of signing up with Cowell who is, of course, associated with ‘The X Factor’ and pop,’ said a source.
