I can hear you through my monitor now. “What are you getting at Tassi? Are you turning into some sort of Twilight apologist or something?” Nope, rather I’m writing this to show that there is a distinct difference between actors BEING douchebags, and actors PLAYING douchebags. You all may hate Robert Pattinson as you only know him as the sparkly, weepy vampire in the Twilight trilogy, but fun fact, did you know that he actually hates the series more than you?
Below is a collection of quotes that has Rob expressing his true feelings about the movies, the books and Meyer herself, and his level of harshness will likely surprise you. By the end, I think you may even like the guy a little bit. Read on:

On Meyer and the books:
“When I read it … I was convinced that Stephenie was convinced that she was Bella, and … It was like it was a book that wasn’t supposed to be published, like reading her – her sort of sexual fantasy about some – especially when she says that it was based on a dream, and it’s like, ‘Oh, then I had a dream about this really sexy guy’ and she just writes this book about it, and there’s some things about Edward that are just so specific that … I was just convinced that this woman is mad, she’s completely mad, and she’s in love with her own fictional creation.
“And I sometimes … Feel uncomfortable reading this thing, and I think a lot of people feel the same way, that it’s kind of voyeuristic … It creates this sick pleasure in a lot of ways.”
From a 2008 E! Online interview that’s been stripped from the internet:
“Girls often say that Edward’s ‘sooo perfect,’ but he’s not. I do not like people who try to exert control in a relationship, when there is an imbalance. This is very wrong and very strange.”
Last month in Brussels, as to why Cullen is such a d-bag:
“… The more I read the script, the more I hated this guy, so that’s how I played him, as a manic-depressive who hates himself.”
At Comic-Con on Breaking Dawn’s insane plot:
“Have sex, demon baby. No, they get married first, demon baby, Jacob falls in love with the little baby [laughs], then everyone tries to kill each other, but nothing happens. Oh, that’s the second one [laughs even harder].”
On the infamous sex scene:
“I wanted to have it as a line so much. [He switches to an ‘Edward’ accent] ‘I bit through all the pillows. Every. Single. One.’ And then he’d start crying. By the way, that’s what he should be ashamed of in the morning. All those beautiful pillows! Egyptian cotton! (Laughs) ‘I ruined this bed!'”
