If you’re a fan of the Twilight series, you’re in luck because a new film is set to premiere just before the end of 2019. However, if you’re a fan of actor Robert Pattinson, you might be in for some disappointment because he recently revealed that he doesn’t care much for the Twilight franchise. In fact, he thinks it’s horrible. Here’s what he had to say.

On Why He Wants To Stay Far Away From The Twilight Franchise

Pattinson admitted that he’s never really been a fan of the Twilight series. In fact, he said that he didn’t even know what it was when he was first offered the role of Edward in Twilight. The British actor said that when he read the script, he realized it was just another vampire story and that he didn’t want to be a part of it.

He continued,

“I was aware of the Twilight phenomenon, but I didn’t really get it until I was offered the part. When I first read the script, I thought it was quite boring. I mean, it was just another vampire story and there was nothing new in it. When I was asked if I would be interested in playing Edward, the first thing that came to my mind was ‘No, I don’t want to be a part of it.’ And then, a few weeks later, I found out that Summit had hired a different actor to play the part, and here I am.”

On Why He Thinks The Twilight Franchise Is Poorly Made

Pattinson doesn’t seem to have a problem with the fact that Twilight films are made for an American audience, as he admitted that he doesn’t understand why his movies are only released in English speaking countries. For instance, he thinks that Russia would probably love his movies since he is often referred to as the “English Robert Pattinson.”

Pattinson also has a lot of respect for Alfonso Cuaron, the director of the latest Twilight film, who he feels is a cinematic genius. But, he thinks that Cuaron’s movies are poorly made because he doesn’t use any scripts and just goes with what he feels. In contrast, he feels that he does a good job when he scripts his own movies because he knows exactly what he’s doing.

The Twilight franchise is one of the most popular movie series of all time. And, it’s probably not a coincidence that many of its fans are also Robert Pattinson fans. So, if you’re a Robert Pattinson fan, you might be in for some disappointment since he doesn’t seem to want to be associated with the Twilight franchise.
