Vampires Suck's Matt Lanter Talks RPattz and Twilight
08.07.10 by REELZ
Matt Lanter, star of new Twilight Saga parody Vampires Suck, will soon get a taste of just what the Twilight fandom is really like. In a recent interview, the 27-year-old 90210 actor talked about fan backlash, Robert Pattinson, and Edward Cullen impersonations.
When asked about working on the spoof, and whether he expects any fan backlash, Lanter said of Twilight, "Let's be honest, they had it coming, right." He also says he worries "a little bit" about 13-year-old girls turning up at his house, asking them to "please not hurt me."
On the subject of RPattz, Lanter had only good things to say, admitting he hasn't yet met him but that "He seems like a great guy, though. He really does. Honestly, I'm a fan. He does a great job in the Twilight series."
He also went on to talk about his Edward Cullen impersonations, saying:
I had the eyes and I had the hair. My hair was longer too, I had a very good, disheveled Rob Pattinson look going on. It was great, we pretty much closely follow the Twilight film. So a lot of the scenes in Twilight we're actually doing. What's also kind of cool is that we also follow our own storyline. It was fun.
So, Twilighters, how do you think Matt Lanter compares to Robert Pattinson? Could he ever rival the British global superstar? Let us now whose hair you think is better in the comments.
