Paul Wesley Admits: I'm No Robert Pattinson

by at . Comments

A couple months ago, we asked if Paul Wesley compared to Robert Pattinson.

Readers responded, overwhelmingly, in the negative. Many seemed aghast that we dared to compare anyone with the Twilight hunk, but it only seemed natural.

Bruised and Battered

After all, on The Vampire Diaries, Wesley is portraying a vampire with a good heart and an eye on a lovely, young, human high school student. Sound familiar?

At Comic-Con last week, aware of the inevitable comparisons, Wesley admitted that he's really no Robert Pattinson.

"I just want to create a character independent of that," Wesley told a fan that asked about similarities between he and Pattinson's roles. "Besides, I think nine out of 10 girls would throw me under a bus to get to Edward Cullen."

The crowd booed at that response. But is it accurate? You tell us!

Who makes the cuter pretend vampire?
