Twilight vs. Buffy
Posted 11.17.08 by reelz
In an interview with Twilight director Catherine Hardwicke, Salon tries to draw her out on comparisons to another another vampire cult with a large pop culture following. But Hardwicke won't bite, saying "This is a bit weird, but I've probably never seen one second of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. So I am an ignorant person and I cannot compare it. I know nothing about it." She does say though that she wasn't looking to make Bella any kind of powerhouse role model, but stay true to her character. And in the first book anyway, Bella remains an ordinary girl.
