Robert Pattinson Disses Vampires That Came After 'Twilight'

Robert Pattinson Interview

Watch out, ‘Vampire Diaries’ — R-Patz just accused you of copying his film series!

Robert Pattinson is passionate about Twilight, and it seems the Breaking Dawn star has some harsh words for other vampire-based dramas like The Vampire Diaries!

Rob, 25, said he sees too many similarities between his movie and the copycats it inspired, German television station VIVA reports.

“It’s like that Coke versus Pepsi thing, and how Coke just said ‘There’s a reason everyone compares themselves to us,'” he said. “‘Twilight’ was the original and everybody’s trying to copy it. They’re all just trying to jump aboard the ‘Twilight’ train!”

What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers — is Rob being totally mean or totally honest?

First of all the vampire diaires book series was created way before twilight, 1991, so Stephanie Meyer just copied lj smith. Rob needs to shut his mouth and be more like Ian somerhalder,

There were way better vampire series before either were created. Obviously Rob doesn’t know his vampire history.

OK, But Twilight and Vampire Diaries have only one similiar thing: there are vampires and werewolfes on it, nothing more.
There is all diferent. And it’s good. Noone want to copy Twilight…
IMHO, I like more Twilights books than movies, and I like more TheVampireDiaries TV series than books ;)

Can everyone stop arguing? TVD books came out first and Twilight movie came out first. Even if the Twilight series never existed, we wouldn’t know if TVD would get popular or not. Fans of TVD say yes, fans of Twilight say no.

THE VAMPIRE DIARIES SERIES WAS WRITTEN BEFORE TWILIGHT WAS… HOW COULD THEY POSSIBILY HAVE COPYED IT?!
THE TV SERIES CAME AFTER BECAUSE OF THE ATENTION VAMPIRES WERE GETTING, BUT THERE WAS NO COPYING….

deny it or not..twilight had started these vampires and supernatural things in this generation..even ian of TVD admitted that rob is really of different level and he has this job now becoz of the vampire craze brought about by twilight.
let us be happy that these two are hits!

Yes TVD books came out first but they didn’t make the show until they saw how big Twilight got and then they thought to do the same.I love TVD and everything but it will never be as big and amazing as Twilight!!!!

Rob is totally right the “Twilight” book series came out way before Vampire Diaries and in VD a young girl falls in love with a hot vampire! What does that sound like? Oh right! Twilight! Rob is totally right.

Get your facts straight, VD books were written waaay before stephanie had that stupid dream! That said, it’s true that VD got attention because of the attention Twilight was getting. That said, VD totally owns Twilight. Everyone in their right minds and not in love with a fictional character who sparkles know that. VD actually has a plot and action, not like Twilight, which is all about this girl who falls in love with a vampire.. BIG DEAL!

The Vampire Diaries was published BEFORE Twilight was, but i think because so many people liked Twilight, it brought back the interest of vampires

If he is talking about The Vampire Diaries, he should go see when the first TVD book was published. Then maybe, he would think two times before saying another word.

erm, how do you know if he meant vampire diaries? If he did then Rob really needs to brush up on his facts. Firstly, the vampire diaries is a love story about two vampire brothers and a human girl, not a vampire, a werewolf and a human girl. Secondly, the vampire diaries was written at least ten years before the twilight series. Thirdly, and this is just my opinion, the vampires in tvd are way better than the sparkle brigade from twilight. Finally, the cast of vampire diaries have said in interviews that they are greatful for the success of twilight, as without it, tvd wouldn’t have happened, so rob really shouldn’t bite the hand that feeds him.

Sorry Rob, but the Vampire Diaries series was written in the late 80s/early 90s; and if anyone would go back and read them, they’d see that Twilight (which was written long after) resembles them quite a bit.
