Robert Pattinson Hates ‘Twilight’ More Than You Ever Will [VIDEO]
Much like the majority of the population over the age of 14, Robert Pattinson has always been very vocal about how he thinks the ‘Twilight Saga‘ is an awful, awful mess of a series, even moreso as the movies wound down to their (thankfully) inevitable conclusion.
And now we have irrevocable video proof of such.
One intrepid YouTuber put together a compilation of Pattinson’s most hilarious put-downs about the wretched series that took him from drooled-over wizard to drooled-over vampire, and we’ve included some of the more worthy quotes below — including his thoughts on his salary, his feelings about the moniker R-Patz, and his very favorite co-star (it’s not who you might think).
Based on the somehow popular ‘Twilight’ book series of the same name, which Pattinson had to read (he should’ve gotten hazard pay for that alone), the actor couldn’t help but think that Stephenie Meyer’s series “seemed like a book that wasn’t supposed to be published.”
“I was convinced that Stephanie was convinced she was Bella,” he wisely observed. “It’s like, this woman is mad.”
Regarding Edward (who was easy to play thanks solely to his vampire contact lenses), Pattinson is of the belief that if the character existed as a regular person in real life, “You can tell he’s just gonna freak out one day and shoot someone … He’s one of those guys who would be like an ax murderer.”
As for Bella, Pattinson said it’s incredulous that despite dating someone who repeatedly tells her he thinks about killing her, she wants to be with him anyway. “She’s like, ‘I don’t care. I love you.’ Well, there’s definitely something wrong with her.”
In addition to all these jabs at the characters, Pattinson says that his pay “could’ve been better,” and that his most favored co-star was … a line of moisturizers he liked. Let your imagination run wild with that.
Pattinson also details the most ridiculous part of the series, when in ‘Breaking Dawn: Part 1′ he had to Google “vampire babies” to learn more about Bella’s pregnancy: “Really? We’re all like 300-year-old geniuses, and then it’s like ‘vampire babies’ on Google Images.”
Finally, in response to the anonymous person who gave him the nickname R-Patz: “I would like to break the hands and mouth of the person who came up with it.” (Not sure if that was a threat or a promise, but we’re pretty sure a whole lot of chicks will take the blame just to find out.)
Bottom line is that if Robert Pattinson keeps this up, we might actually have to stop tooling on him around here — because he’s doing all the heavy lifting for us.
