Robert Pattinson: Edward Cullen is a Weird Axe Murderer!

by at . Comments

Robert Pattinson doesn't understand all the fuss fans make over him. The actor somehow does not consider himself good looking.

But at least he's a nice, kind-hearted individual.

This is a stark contrast to the character he plays in the Twilight Saga, as Pattinson told Britain's OK! that he truly can't fathom the appeal of Edward Cullen.

“With virtually anyone, the nice guys always seem to come last. You always get weirdos like Edward who seem to attract women for some reason," the actor said. “If Edward wasn’t a fictional character and you met him in reality, he is like one of those guys who would probably be an axe murderer or something.”

Apparently the fact that a vampire wouldn't be a fictional character isn't frightening enough.

Hot Goofball

As for the attention he's garnered, Pattinson countered claims that he's afraid of fans.

“I had no idea people could get so obsessed. But it’s not scary - it’s amazing. People just project their idea of my character on to me and they just seem to assume that I’m the same, when in reality I’m not.”

Is Robert out of line in dissing Edward in such a manner? We know he plays a vampire, but is it really a good idea to bite the hand that feeds you?
