does everyone agreed that Robert pattison was meant to play edward in the twilight movie series?

im pretty sure all of you didnt imagine the same edward and when the twlight movie came out i was happy but i wasnt really happy with choice of letting Robert play edward i dont know it just doesnt look right^^ and the way he acts is not the edward described in the book well thats my opinion

Re: does everyone agreed that Robert pattison was meant to play edward in the twilight movie series?

at first i wasnt happy although i know a vamps supposed to have the high cheekbones and defined jawline, i imagined him having darker hair and abit more of a softer face, and he can act but he dosnt show the compassion, and love that edwards shows so cleary in the books, but thats my opinion, but overal he does make a good edward just not the one i imagined

I think Robert Pattinson has proved that he is the perfect Edward. The brooding gaze, the convincing acting, the beautiful piano playing (aren't those muscian's hands he has HOT?!). Three cheers for Rob!

i like Rob. he can act well and he gets job done without it seeming fake or to forced like his co-star Kirsten Stewart. and he is PRETTY!

I read the books first shy of when the movie was about to come out but I like Robert since I saw him in harry potter movie. He has the physical aspects to play Edward but I don't think he was meant to play edward, I read that Kristen practically told the director to cast him. That she wouldn't do it unless he was cast. Choosing Robert helped the twilight movies but I think Kristen was a poor choice.

i personally dont like him. hes just kinda creepy. his acting skills are good but he himself is not. his physique is too lanky and i imagine edward more buff than that. i think they could have chosen someone else to play him. personally, i think the two worst actors/actresses were Robert and Kristen. the best is Taylor and Ashley. haha.

 

Im TEAM JACOB!!!!!!! WOOOOOOT!!!!!! im also team TAYLOR!!!! haha

No offence to Robert Pattison(sp?), but in some parts in the movie he kind of looked like a stalker...

I don't think Robert was the best choice personally. Honestly I didn't like Kristin AT ALL in the movie, either. She let out air alot and looked weird part of the time. The best scene both were in was the ending fight scene.

My favorite characters were Alice, Jasper, and Jacob.

I'm a Team Jacob member! (And if there was a team Alice and/or Jasper team I'd be there, too. Haha.)

Just so you know, I don't think that was really Kristen's fault. It was probably meant to be the way they did it for making her seem nervous and such.

Re: does everyone agreed that Robert pattison was meant to play edward in the twilight movie series?

In my opinon the whole movie sucked!!! They could have done the movie much better. Edward and BElla were choosen sooo wrongly. Edward { Robert } looks stalker-ish and like a pedophile...and Bella I visioned her to be like very pretty and different. They should have casted differently they both did horrible in the movie...messing the books...which I loved!

If you ever feel the need to wonder why.
Let me know

I have to say I am NOT fond of Taylor Lautner. He seems egotistical, and he's not hot enough (or tall enough) to play Jacob.
