Robert Pattinson Imagines a Twilight Sequel Involving a Gay Edward and an Alien Invasion
It’s rare to get a glimpse inside the beautiful mind of actor Robert Pattinson, but that’s exactly what happened during his appearance with Taylor Lautner on The Ellen DeGeneres Show this week.
When asked what it would take to get Rob to return for a sixth installment of the Twilight series, the British star joked (via Us Weekly) that he’d be on board “if there was an alien invasion and stuff.”
Ellen must have unlocked a creative box in Robert — the space in which he’s stored years of ideas for how to switch up the famous franchise — because he didn’t stop there. “Or [they could] make it Twilight-slash-Avengers,” he continued.
His next gem, however, would be the true game-changer: “I was also thinking another way to do it would be to make it look like Will & Grace, where Edward turns gay. But they still stay together, and they raise the kid and everything,” he added, conceding that this option would be more exciting if combined with the alien invasion plot.
We dig his energy, but this is why Rob acts in movies and doesn’t write them.
The episode of Ellen will air tomorrow (Friday, November 9).
