Robert Pattinson is one of the hottest stars right now thanks to ‘Twilight’, a film that made his character one of the most desired vampires of all time. But what is it that attracts people to love vampires so much?
Pattinson admits he doesn’t actually know, but when he came into the ‘Twilight’ project – he didn’t look at it as a vampire story.
“When I try to play it [Edward] I try to eliminate the vampire element as much as I can and just kind of see it as a tool to make their relationship a little more fraught.” explained Pattinson, “Right after the audition I found myself kind of bizarrely invested in the story and I hadn’t even read the books at that point.”
Pattinson also admitted that the more and more he deals with the ‘Twilight’ books, the more he becomes invested. “I’ve kind of gotten more and more attached to it. I’ve been talking about the script for ‘Eclipse’ to people over the last few weeks and I find myself getting very argumentative which I’m not usually.” Pattinson admitted, “They [vampires] definitely have some kind of power.”
Is it vampires that have the power? Or just the ‘Twilight’ books? What do you think?
