Robbie Williams: 'I was weird and fat, looking at UFOs'

Robbie Williams has admitted that his obsession with UFOs made him "weird and fat".

The former Take That member took a keen interest in extra-terrestrial beings after becoming 'burnt out' from his 20-year-long music career.

The 38-year-old star, who is about to become a father for the first time with wife Ayda Field in the next few weeks, was ridiculed in the past for his interest in outer-space.

Williams told The Sun: "Ever since I was 16 all I have been doing is make album, promote album, tour album... and I did that for 20 years.

"Then I got a bit burnt out and I was looking for something else. I thought that something else was making documentaries about UFOs."

He added: "But that wasn't going to work out for me. It just made me weird and - at the time - fat. Weird and fat, looking at UFOs.

"So I thought I would reverse out of this situation, which was a PR nightmare, and my management put the idea [of a clothing line] to me."

Williams launched his own fashion collection, Farrell, yesterday (August 30).
