From this interview:

After replying to the text message, we found out that Rupert recently lost a bet to actor Robert Pattinson, who was once part of the Harry Potter cast in a previous film, and insisted that Rupert read the bestselling book. Rupert is now “stuck reading ‘Twilight’” and that Rob was just texting him to see how far along he was getting.

Rupert admitted he had only read the first five chapters of the bestselling book and we just informed him that there were three more books in the series. “No, really, are you serious? I thought there was just this one book?” Only now realizing he has to read three more, Rupert took his phone out and sent another message to Rob. By the looks of things, we can bet it wasn’t a very pleasant message.

Poor, poor Rupert. It was cruel of Robert to do something so inhumane. I can tell Rupert is regretting not agreeing to shave his head completely bald, or something similarly stupid. Now he is stuck reading four (although this part is sort of lame—four books, big deal) of those little horrors.

See what other nice things Pattinson had to say about Twilight

    How could you do that to a person? This should be covered by the Geneva convention.

    What Meyey needs is some camlove. If only she had a little more camlove in life, she wouldn’t have been bored out her mind enough to write tehse.

    Camlove is the answer to everything… ;)

    Oh, my.

    Bringing people along to the a midnight release day showing of Twilight might be more dangerous than I had anticipated. I’m making a new line of garlic-emblemed t-shirts to ward off all the Team Edward stuff. Hopefully it will be enough.

    I’ll try to get us some pepper spray… This will be scary.

  8. Virgil on 10 October 2008, 15:25 said:

    Wow. I’m rather speechless. Hopefully the movie will be as bad as Eragon’s was, even though it will make a decent amount of money.

  9. SlyShy on 10 October 2008, 16:32 said:

    Of course the movie will be bad. Have you seen the trailers? The prevalent opinion is that it looks like a Hallmark Channel.

  10. Virgil on 10 October 2008, 16:43 said:

    I’ve seen a trailer, but I lost interest afterward.

  11. Snow White Queen on 10 October 2008, 19:30 said:

    go on youtube and see the spoof trailer. i love these people!

    mwahahaha made my day!

    i would much rather watch two hours of that than the real mushy gushy stuff the movie will of course be.

  12. Virgil on 10 October 2008, 19:36 said:

    Hahaha that spoof is so funny, it made my day too.

    Hey.. hey I’m immortal!

    Well, I think I’m actually going to see the movie at midnight, if only to make fun of it during the movie…Who’s with me?

  14. Snow White Queen on 11 October 2008, 19:46 said:

    my favorite part was the end, when they’re going to jump out the window and they crash… ‘WHO SHUT THAT!’. priceless

    those folks are right on. their other stuff is pretty good too…although perhaps the twilight spoof was my favorite because i hate the series so much.

    i kind of want to see the movie, just to see how mushy it is…however, it’s not worth sacrificing my sleep. (if anyone hasn’t noticed, i HATE mushy stuff). hopefully someone will post a chat spork like exitmouse and slyshy did for brisingr? that would be great.

    “(although this part is sort of lameā€”four books, big deal)”

    Four books isn’t that many if you’re reading, say, Harry Potter books.

    Having to read FOUR. BOOKS of Meyer’s long-winded, abuse-celebrating, 600+ pages of purple prose, though … that’s a significant chunk of your life down the tubes, and I can’t blame Grint for reacting in that manner when he thought he only had to plow through ONE.

    I’m a teen librarian, and I am often reading books I have no interest in for our book group (we did “Breaking Dawn” two months ago; this month is “Brisingr”) — so I relate to it, though. When you have a limited amount of time to read and you are surrounded by dozens of books you WANT to read, and you have to waste your time on this drivel … oh yes, four books is a lot! :D

    I <3 Rupert Grint for this, though. And Pattenson, for that matter …

  16. SlyShy on 27 October 2008, 13:07 said:

    Hey Rose,

    Oh god, you’ve had to deal with Breaking Dawn and Brisingr? Hopefully the book in the month between those two was good… I admire what you are doing to promote reading though. :)

  17. RandomVisitor on 28 October 2008, 23:05 said:

    Ahh poor Rupert. He is now one of the four males in the world to ever read all four books… what an awful fate.

    Snow White Queen; thank you for posting that link! HILARIOUS!!!

    Bella: “So, what, now he wants to kill me?”
    Edward: “No! He wants my candy bar!!”

  18. Snow White Queen on 29 October 2008, 10:49 said:

    @Random Visitor: You’re welcome…I think it’s a pretty popular video, because it was once featured on YouTube. (It’s one of my favorites too…)

  19. GC on 30 October 2008, 00:49 said:

    Yeah, it’s pretty popular. My favourite part is where the macho vampire goes ‘I want your snack’ or something, and this guy shields his candy bar. XD

    Another Robert Pattinson quote:

    “I was convinced before I ever met Stephenie that she was a mad person who completely believed she was Bella, and this was just her fantasy,” said Pattinson, best known for playing Cedric Diggory in two of the “Harry Potter” films. “It’s kind of like voyeurism. … It seems like it’s something like a fan-fiction thing, which was never intended to be read by anyone.”

    I love Rupert Grint so much. ANd Robert Pattinson for that matter. Only because of what he said about Edward…. I hate him.
