Robert Pattinson lied about his education to get the role of Cedric Diggory in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.
He actually lied to land most of his earlier acting gigs, and they happen to include this popular role that helped him skyrocket to fame.
"I'd been unemployed for ages, and when I came to Los Angeles all the casting directors would ask what I'd been doing for the past few years. I'd say, 'Oh, I was at RADA' – if you've got an English accent you can get away with it. I'd say I went to Oxford, too. I did it for years,” he said.

Rebel Wilson allegedly lied about her age to get several roles, including Pitch Perfect.
For years, everyone thought that she was seven years younger than her real age. But then a magazine reported that she was actually in her 30s. Rebel revealed that she kept that secret because of ageism in Hollywood.
"For the press to do a story that I was deliberately, you know, lying or whatever… No, I was just being a lady and not telling my age when I moved to America. And that’s not really a crime. Also, most actresses do that," she explained.

Anne Hathaway lied about her horse-riding experience to get the role of Lureen Newsome Twist in Brokeback Mountain.
She had no idea how to ride a horse, so she lied about it. But then she landed the role and decided to teach herself how!
"When I left the audition, the last thing [the director] said was, ‘Oh, by the way, can you ride a horse?’ My parents have given me a lot of gifts in my life, and one of them is: If you’re ever asked if you can do anything, say yes. You can learn anything in two weeks if you’re motivated enough. So I’d never been on a horse, and I replied, ‘Oh yeah, I’m a really good rider.’ So I knew I had to learn to ride," she said.
