Robert Pattinson starred as Edward Cullen, the iconic vampire who fell in love with an ordinary teen named Bella Swan, played by Kristen Stewart in Forks, Washington. Catherine Hardwicke directed Twilight, which is based on Stephenie Meyer’s best-selling fantasy novel of the same name.
Robert Pattinson recently claimed that the days of hating on Twilight are long gone. “It’s not even cool to be a hater anymore,” Pattinson stated in a recent interview with People aired on the publication’s TikTok account, in response to The Batman costar Zoë Kravitz confessing she wasn’t a fan.
It’s not even cool to be a hater anymore. That’s so 2010.
Kravitz clarified herself stating that: “I don’t hate it, I just didn’t see it. I just didn’t participate in it.” Kravitz again corrected herself, recalling that she did watch the first film because her best friend basically forced her to go.
The film became a global hit upon its release in November 2008. Twihards went to theatres to see the sequels, all based on Meyer’s books: “New Moon” (2009), “Eclipse” (2010), “Breaking Dawn: Part 1” (2011), and “Breaking Dawn: Part 2” (2012). Not everyone was a fan at the height of the franchise’s popularity.
In interviews, Pattinson famously slammed the Twilight films. He appeared unenthusiastic about the franchise in video compilations, from how long the filming took to how odd the plots were.
