What you hope doesn’t happen when your book is made into a big movie
Twilight is to be released this week and the stars are out giving interviews left and right and left again. We have the actress not reading the rest of the series :
Even though all the adorable sour-pussed faces from the new vampire movie Twilight have been signed up for the sequel, New Moon, the movie’s lead, Kristen Stewart, has not read the second book of the series by Stephenie Meyer. “I couldn’t wrap my head around all four huge stories at once,” she told Sci Fi Wire. “It was too informative. [Bella] wasn’t supposed to know those things, so I didn’t want to know them.” We just hate it when things are informative.
Then we have the actor playing Edward :
Well, I mean, I think people — there’s a thing about the books where, uh, when I was reading them, I, ugh, I didn’t know how to read it from, you know, teenage g– or any woman’s perspective, I guess. I don’t really know why they like it. But what I thought was weird about it, the, what, the reaction I had with it was … umm…. When I read it, it seemed like (grimaces) I was convinced that … Stephenie was … convinced that she was Bella, and uh, and you, it wasn’t, 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 it’s like, I was just convinced that, that this woman is mad, she’s completely mad, and she’s in love with her own fictional creation and I — sometimes you, like, feel uncomfortable reading this thing.
