Can you remember when you saw Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart kiss for the very first time ever in Twilight Saga? The scene was totally epic, right? While most of us stuck around for the Bella and Edward drama that went down in the four movies that followed, according to Rob, there were also plenty of people who bailed on the franchise over the years — and even started to bash it!
"I don't understand the backlash against Twilight," the star revealed to The Daily Beast. "The first movie, everyone liked it. But then it was suddenly… I don't quite get why people turned on the other ones."
"In a lot of ways, people have decided what Twilight is about before they’ve even thought about it, and then they’ve labeled us, the actors, as part of whatever that may be," he continued. "Even the sparkling thing. I get so many sparkly criticisms! But I don't actually remember a moment of in any of the movies where I sparkle."
Rob also had some very nice things to say about the star of another big franchise: Jennifer Lawrence.
"She's amazing. She's absolutely incredible," he said. "But also we're different types of people. She seems like she's super-confident — and I don't have the kind of confidence. She glows. I think you can fit that into quite a few different areas. Whereas I've got a kind of sneak-through-the-cracks style."
Were you a huge Twihard back in the day? Are you surprised that Rob is such a big fan of JLaw? Sound off in the comments!
