Robert Pattinson Hates Twilight and His Character, Edward!
Is Robert Pattinson a Twilight hater? It sure sounds that way!
Based on a video by The Mary Sue of compiled responses that Rob has made over the years about Twilight and his character, it seems that he's had a lot of problems with the material that has made him a superstar.
"When I read it, it seemed like a book that wasn’t supposed to be published," Rob says in one interview about the first time he read Twilight. In another interview about the book, he says, "It was so long."
About the books' author, Stephanie Meyer, Robert makes cracks about the fact that Stephanie supposedly came up with Twilight in a dream. "It's like, 'This woman is mad,'" Rob says.
He also doesn't seem to enjoy the part that he plays in the series. "If Edward was not a fictional character, and you just met him in reality, he’s one of those guys who’d be an axe murderer," he says.
Rob doesn't seem to be a big fan of Bella and Edward's relationship, saying he doesn't get why Bella would want to be with someone as potentially dangerous as Edward. "There's definitely something wrong with her, and there's very obviously something wrong with me," he says of Bella and Edward.
And he was hoping for a few more action scenes. "I hardly get to do any vampire stuff," Rob continues.
While we're on Rob's negativity, he's not crazy about the "R-Patz" nickname either. "I would like to break the hands and mouth of the person who came up with it," Rob says with a laugh.
And finally, if you didn't get the gist yet of Rob's feelings about the series, you're about to. Talk show host Jimmy Fallon tells him that many fans of the series are feeling depressed that it's over, so Jimmy asks if it's bittersweet. Rob thinks for a moment, and then says, "For them!"
Yep, R-Patz is so not a Twihard. (And Rob: Please don't hurt us for calling you "R-Patz.")
