I’ve never been a huge Robert Pattinson fan. Don’t get me wrong. I love Twilight, and I think he does a fantastic job playing the part of Edward Cullen. But other than that, I’ve never been gaga over him and he’s never really stood out to me as particularly interesting. And now, I have even less use for him. From the sounds of it, he’s gotten a pretty big head.
It seems that he thinks he’s some sort of God to the Twilight series, and also seems to forget that Stephenie Meyer didn’t actually write those wonderful books with him in mind. She wrote the books, they got a huge fan following, and then the movies came out. But, if you were to ask Pattinson, the pandemonium didn’t start until he became a part of it. Or, in his own words, he’s “been central to the whole thing since the very beginning.” I beg to differ, and I wonder what Stephenie Meyer would think about it. From Contact Music,
“Robert Pattinson has difficulty connecting to the ”crazy” fans of ‘The Twilight Saga’ but enjoys ”participating” in the pandemonium the series causes.
Robert Pattinson “can’t connect” to fans of ‘The Twilight Saga’.
The 24-year-old actor – who plays vampire Edward Cullen in the movie series – admits the huge following the films have amassed is still a mystery to him, but he enjoys the attention it brings.
He said: “We’ve been sort of central to the whole thing since the beginning.
“It started, really, when no one knew anything about it. I still, to this day, can’t really connect to the craziness, and it’s a great position to be in.
“You walk in a room and everybody’s screaming and it’s not really about you, so it never really goes to your head. You can kind of participate in it.”
He’s so wrong in so many ways. Firstly, he has admitted in the past that he really knew nothing about Twilight when he auditioned for the part. And that he was quite surprised to find out that the books were such a huge phenomenon in the States. But people, young people especially, were crazy for those books before people like Robert and myself even knew about them. And I’m not saying that he, or the movies, haven’t played a part in making the books more successful. I may have never picked up Twilight if I hadn’t seen the movie first, and I’m sure that there are many people like me out there. But, to claim that you’ve been central to the whole thing since the beginning? Sorry, I think that’s a right that only belongs to the author, Stephenie Meyer.
And as for all the screaming girls when he walks into a room? He’s wrong there too. That is about him. Girls are crazy for him. And if they had chosen someone super fugly to play the part of Edward Cullen, I doubt those same girls would be screaming, just because they love Edward so much. So yes, in some ways, Robert Pattinson deserves to enjoy every inch of his oversized head. But, to say that he and the rest of the cast are the reason for the series’ success? No I’m sorry. That’s not gonna fly with me.
