Robert Pattinson confesses his love of Craigslist.

Robert Pattinson admitted a very dark secret on Jimmy Kimmel Live! Wednesday night — his love for the online classified website Craigslist. Despite Pattinson's net worth of about $64 million, Robert told Jimmy Kimmel he buys as much as he can off of Craigslist, including his car — a 2001 Chevrolet Silverado.

Kimmel is a bit in disbelief and asks Pattinson, "Did you actually like go on a computer and find a Craigslist ad and buy it from some guy somewhere?" Pattinson laughs, "Um yeah, I buy everything on Craigslist." Pattinson goes on to detail a very funny — and surprising — Craigslist story that explains how he purchased the Silverado. "It was a guy in Chino Hills... he lived with his parents." The audience rolls in laughter as Kimmel cannot believe the seller did not recognize Robert Pattinson as a major movie star. "Yeah, we were talking about the gas prices. I was like, 'I know man, it's crazy' " said Pattinson about the Craigslist encounter. Robert Pattinson ended up purchasing the truck for $2,100 — $300 off the seller's asking price of $2,500.

Robert Pattinson also told Jimmy Kimmel he is "homeless" and joked about living on the streets of Los Angeles. Pattinson explained he "just rented this archway and I just live behind it. In one of those trash cans." Kimmel didn't mention Pattinson's recent relationship break from Twilight actress Kristen Stewart or that Pattinson had moved out of their once-shared Los Angeles home.
