Rob Pattinson Critiques Edward Cullen

Robert Pattinson says he’s nothing like Edward Cullen in real life because he’s ‘lighthearted,’ unlike his ‘Breaking Dawn’ character! Watch this video!

One thing Twi-hards love about Edward Cullen is his steadfast love for Bella Swan. However, actor Robert Pattinson thinks his character is too possessive over the love of his life and said he’d never be that way with Kristen Stewart!

“Girls often say that Edward’s ‘sooo perfect,’ but he’s not,” Rob, 25, told the press during a Breaking Dawn Q-and-A in Brussels, Belgium Oct. 26. “I do not like people who try to exert control in a relationship, when there is an imbalance. This is very wrong and very strange. Fortunately, he finally gives up and he tries not to boss Bella around.”

The easy going British actor went on to explain what makes him different from his head strong character.

“I can not say that I am similar to Edward,” Rob said. “From the beginning, the relationship between Edward and Bella is complicated; there is always danger against which they must fight. He thinks far too much, which doesn’t really make him lighthearted. That’s not how I am at all!”

We have to admit we’re slightly enchanted with how dedicated Edward is when it comes to Bella. However, Rob does have a point — he’s an incredibly serious character! Do YOU think Edward is too controlling?
