When asked about Twilight in a recent interview with Variety, Robert Pattinson said he feels like he “stopped mentally progressing around the time when I started doing those movies.” When asked when he’d do a sequel, he joked, “I was literally talking to my agent about it... The amount of time I spend moisturizing, I am ready to play 17 at a moment’s notice. Ready. I’ve got the Botox out.”

Wow, thirsty much? I don’t think that’s what he meant.

Did we forget that my man hates the Twilight movies? “When I read it, it was like it was a book that wasn’t supposed to be published,” he once said. He also said Edward Cullen would have turned out to be an axe murderer in real life. Haha. And he joked that the money he got for Twilight “could’ve been better.” Folks, if that doesn’t convince you that you’d have to pay Pattinson gobs of money (which he probably would get anyway) to get him to do another Twilight movie, then I leave you with this video, aptly titled “Robert Pattinson Hates Twilight.” I rest my case.

Twilight was poorly written garbage with many deeply disturbing messages, but you did do the movies, dude.

Pattinson doing the Twilight movies and simultaneously sneering about them and the non-ironic fans, reminded me of the Cool Kid in high school who did a dorky activity like debate club or a science project and secretly rather enjoyed it but made a big song and dance about sighing to the other Cool Kids about how fucking lame it was their parents were making them be in the dumb club and what total fucking losers the other kids in the club were.

Like, wanting to have it both ways - get the benefits of playing the romantic lead in a major blockbuster film franchise and getting the adulation of a battalion of dorky Twilight fans, but wanting to keep Cool Kid Cred by sneering about it all the while to the equally large battalion of Cool Kid Twilight anti-fans.

I got dragged in the comments for having this opinion last time, LOL.
