Robert Pattinson says that his mother asks him about his love life because she often believes what she reads about her son in the tabloids.

The actor has been dating Twilight co-star Kristen Stewart for the last few years and recent reports suggest the couple are to wed leading his mother, Clare, to call asking him if the rumours are true.

"There was a magazine, with these pictures, saying I was getting married,” Pattinson told Blackbook magazine.

“No one ever knows what is true or what isn't. Even my own mum called to ask me if it was true."
