On Twilight

Like little sister number two – see post below – I haven’t read Twilight or watched the movies. But people I respect have. And their opinions on the matter seem divided.

One thing I can’t understand. And I am a completely heterosexual male so this might be a case of perspective… but one thing I just don’t get – is how the guy from the Twilight movies is considered remotely good looking. Let alone the officially recognised “Sexiest Man in the World”…

I think my friend Benny put it best when he asked when the disheveled homeless look came in. Robert whatever his name is always looks like he’s spent the last week sleeping on the street. And perhaps he has. Derelict was a Zoolander satire – it wasn’t a prophecy.

The author

Nathan runs St Eutychus. He loves Jesus. His wife. His daughter. His son. His other daughter. His dog. Coffee. And the Internet. He is the campus pastor at Creek Road South Bank, a graduate of Queensland Theological College (M. Div) and the Queensland University of Technology (B. Journ). He spent a significant portion of his pre-ministry-as-a-full-time-job life working in Public Relations, and now loves promoting Jesus in Brisbane and online. He can't believe how great it is that people pay him to talk and think about Jesus.

  1. I think in this case he is considered attractive because Edward is attractive. That sort of logic makes sense if you are a rabid fangirl twihard.

    Derelict!

  2. I am glad that I am not the only person who has been wandering round saying ‘derelict’ lately.

  3. Robert Pattinson is attractive. I don’t really like what they’ve done with him in Twilight, and I think the way they’ve styled him in Twilight has rubbed off on him in real life. He needs a haircut and needs to shave more often.

    He is good looking though. Find some photos of him from his Harry Potter days.

    I still wouldn’t rate him sexiest man alive though.

  4. Agree. He looked pretty good in Harry Potter. The accent helps as well.
    ..
    I really wonder now if he regrets taking the role. Because he doesn’t look like he is enjoying himself.

  5. Haha. It’s true, he appears to despise the freakish fan girls. But he must be enjoying the role, because I don’t believe they signed up for all 4 movies at once – but he keeps coming back. (Could be wrong about the contracts there).
