Robert Pattinson hates Twilight, the movie franchise that made him both a worldwide household name and a millionaire? Well, let’s just say that Pattinson is glad that the five-movie Twilight Saga is over, as this video montage proves beyond any reasonable and unreasonable doubts. The Robert Pattinson vs. Twilight video compilation is hardly new, but it’s hilarious all the same. A must-see. (Please scroll down to check out the video montage “Robert Pattinson Is Happy Twilight Is Over.”) [Image: Robert Pattinson.]
Pattinson on his character, the centenarian vampire Edward Cullen: "If Edward was not a fictional character, this man would have been in reality … You know, he’d have been one of those guys who would be like an axe murderer." Regarding Bella Swan (played by Kristen Stewart), the vampire Edward Cullen’s paramour who doesn’t care whether or not Edward wants to kill her: "There’s definitely something wrong with her."
Robert Pattinson on Twilight Saga book author Stephenie Meyer: "I was convinced that Stephenie was convinced she was Bella. And especially when [Meyer] said that [Twilight] was based on a dream, and it’s like, ’Oh, I had this dream with this really sexy guy!’ and she just writes this book about it. This woman is mad!"
Robert Pattinson: Best quotes
But perhaps the best Robert Pattinson reply is the one to the question: "Were you happy with your pay?" Pattinson: "Hum … Hum." Ah, also when Pattinson says, "I’d like to break the hands and mouth of the person who came up with [the moniker R-Pattz]."
Oh, no. Wait. The best Robert Pattinson response is to the question, "The Twilight fans out there just cannot wait to see this [I’m assuming that’s Breaking Dawn Part 2], but it’s almost heartbreaking because they don’t want it to be over. It’s a little bittersweet, isn’t it?" Pause. Pattinson, cracking up: "For them!" (See also: “Twilight Record: Breaking Dawn Part 2 International Success.”)
Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson topline the Twilight movies
The original Twilight (2008) was directed by Catherine Hardwicke. Chris Weitz directed follow-up New Moon (2009). David Slade directed Eclipse (2010), and Bill Condon was the "prestige" filmmaker brought in to direct the film version of the final book, inevitably split into two: Breaking Dawn Part 1 (2011) and Breaking Dawn Part 2 (2012).
Besides Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart, the Twilight cast included co-leading man Taylor Lautner, and supporting players Elizabeth Reaser, Peter Facinelli, Dakota Fanning, Michael Sheen, Kellan Lutz, Ashley Greene, Nikki Reed, Jackson Rathbone, Billy Burke, and several others. Among the dozens of featured "guest" stars in the various Twilight movies were 2004 Best Actress Academy Award nominee Catalina Sandino Moreno (Maria Full of Grace) and 1990 Best Supporting Actor nominee Graham Greene (Dances with Wolves).
