It’s true: ‘Rob’ is tying the knot at the end of January — and Kristen Stewart doesn’t even know!
Here’s a shocker: a Twi-hard is about to do something really crazy. In Touch magazine reports that Lauren Adkins, a 24-year-old grad student at the University of Nevada Las Vegas, is planning to exchange vows and rings with Robert Pattinson in an elaborate wedding ceremony. The catch? She’s going to have to drag him down the aisle!
It turns out Lauren is merely saying “I do” to a cardboard cutout of the Twilight star as part of her thesis for her Master of Fine Arts degree. She explains it’s part of a performance-art project to address the stigma attached with being a Twi-hard.
“Being interested in vampires and romance is seen as less worthy than being a fan of a sports team or a band,” she tells the mag. “Why is it so terrible to be a fan of Twilight, but OK to be a fan of Katy Perry?”
So how did this absolutely insane idea come about?
“Talking to a friend, I was like, ‘I love Edward Cullen so much, why don’t I just marry him?’” she explains. “And I thought, ‘Wait a minute — maybe I should marry him.”
And Lauren’s got every last detail of her big day planned out:
>> The venue: The Viva Las Vegas wedding chapel
>> The guests: 100 people, including Lauren’s parents, have been invited
>> The dress: Lauren insists “Rob” won’t see the dress — which is “lace, satin and long-sleeved” — before the ceremony
>> The ring: It costs a whopping $7. (Hey, big spender!)
>> The vows: Lauren describes them as “mostly traditional”
What say you, HollywoodLifers? Is Lauren’s crazy idea a stroke of genius — or just straight-up crazy?
