Jamie Dornan has admitted to being jealous of his pal Robert Pattinson's early fame when the pair were young actors.

While trying to make it in the film industry, Dornan and Pattinson shared a flat alongside future fellow stars like Charlie Cox, Andrew Garfield and Eddie Redmayne.

Pattinson was the first to hit it big, initially featuring in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire as Cedric Diggory before being cast in the juggernaut Twilight franchise as Edward Cullen.

Those two roles in particular sent him into the fame stratosphere, which left his room-mates behind for a while.

“I’ve known Rob forever,” Dornan told Wired.

“He’s a really good friend. I love him. I think he’s one of the most interesting, exciting actors around. I probably at one point was quite jealous early on. We were all friends back in London and Rob was going places and we weren’t. I think he’s the nicest guy in the world.”

The Irishman would go on to carve out an impressive career for himself, and he hit similar fame to Pattinson when cast in the adaptation of one of the most popular novels of all time, 50 Shades of Grey. 

He is currently promoting the spy thriller Heart of Stone, which co-stars Gal Gadot.

Robert Downey Jr. and Robert Pattinson join Adam McKay's new movie

Robert Downey Jr. and Pattinson will star in Adam McKay's next project which is titled Average Height, Average Build.

McKay made his name through comedies like Anchorman and Step Brothers, but over the last decade, he has become an awards darling through movies like The Big Short, Vice and Don't Look Up.

His next movie has been confirmed to be a comedy-drama that will focus on a serial killer who attempts to get into politics in order to make the law more "murder friendly".

Downey Jr. and Pattinson have already been cast in the film but it is unclear who will play the main character, the killer.

Further details on the project are fairly scarce at the moment.
