Shailene Woodley is saying what we’ve all been thinking (and saying) for some time now — the Twilight book and film series suck. Specifically about their suckage, is that they depict unhealthy and “toxic” relationships. At least that’s what she told Teen Vogue. From Contact Music:
‘Twilight’, I’m sorry, is about a very unhealthy, toxic relationship. She falls in love with this guy and the second he leaves her, her life is over and she’s going to kill herself! What message are we sending to young people? That is not going to help this world evolve.
Girl, word. Ms. Woodley has Divergent coming out soon that hopefully depicts a strong, female character, which we really don’t see enough of.

Kellan Lutz, who played Emmett Cullen in the Twilight films, has come forward to say that he was going to actually have Robert Pattinson‘s role of Edward but he decided to turn it down for some reason. He’s saying this years after the fact, so I don’t really get his point, nor do I particularly believe him, but who knows. Stranger things have happened.
From Access Hollywood:
“The role just didn’t… I just didn’t care to entertain it,” Kellan said on Monday’s Access Hollywood Live.
“I really wanted to play a happy role or no role for a little bit,” he told Billy Bush and Kit Hoover, explaining that his role in “Generation Kill” left him wanting something more upbeat.
“I didn’t care to audition for [the role of Edward] because he was a bit moody and emotionally challenged,” the 28-year-old, who played Edward’s brother, Emmett Cullen, in the series, continued.
“But then I loved Emmett… I’m so blessed to have been able to play him,” he said.
Uh… for some reason, I just can’t see it. Also, I bet you he’s kicking himself now because he is barely a working actor now. Then again, I don’t think he’s particularly anything special (not that Pattinson is Marlon Brando or anything) so whatever.

Stephenie Meyer is corny as shit, but she thinks she’s hot shit because of the whole Twilight thing. That’s sorta over now and I don’t think anyone cares anymore (besides maybe Nutty Madam, but that’s not something to brag about), but Stephenie still feels the need to express her exasperation at the very franchise that transformed her boring Mormon housewife life and made her a multi-millionaire. She’s a true artist! She wants to work on other things! Insert eyeroll here.
“I get further away [from Twilight] every day. I am so over it. For me, it’s not a happy place to be.”
Here’s what she said when asked if she’d ever return to Twilight:
“What I would probably do is three paragraphs on my blog saying which of the characters died. I’m interested in spending time in other worlds, like Middle-earth.”
Uh… doesn’t Middle-Earth belong to a totally different (and way better) franchise? Try again, lady. I seriously think she needs to ride the end of the vampire wave while it lasts, because the fanaticism over that kinda shit is on the outs and she doesn’t have much more time to try and make a few more million off of bored teenagers before she fades back into obscurity.
