Hollywood actor Robert Pattinson has revealed he considered ditching his London home in favour of living in a camper van. The ‘Twilight’ star said when he is not shooting films he just goes around east London on a pushbike and he almost made a Stealth van – a general white van which is a home in disguise – his full-time home.
However, he decided against it because of insurance issues, reported Contactmusic. “I go around on my bike, so I’m basically a ghost. I nearly did it, I was 100 per cent going to live in a van, but not just any van – a stealth van! It’s a special niche, not like living in a trailer,” he said in an interview to Esquire UK magazine.
“Stealth vans look like a normal Transit van, so you can park on the street, put signs on saying you’re a plumber or whatever and no one would notice. You can just leave in the middle of the night and, like, drive to Nebraska. I’d love that so much. And I was like, ‘I’m still young, this is my chance…”
On why he never went through with it, he added, “Once you build a toilet and shower yourself, you can’t get it insured and blah, blah, blah.”
