I'm not judging. But........




What is so special about this guy?


I am not one to judge but when I see girls going crazy over this guy, I have to wonder.


And look.


And look some more.


I just don't get it.


Maybe I am old and out of touch with what is "in", but...well.......I don't see it.



No, I havent seen the movie.



But I have read the first two books.



In the Twilight series for those of you who are wondering.



This guy is not who I picture when I think of Edward.



I think if I did see the movie, I would be disappointed.



Are you in love with this guy?



Tell me what I am missing.

I don't see it at all, not at all. I'd like the answer too.

Stacy (the Random Cool Chick) said...

I'm waiting for the answer to that, too - I'm with you, I picture Edward different...and I haven't even read the books yet! ;)

Happy WW! :)

I pictured Edward as a young Johnny Depp.

I don't mind this guy but I don't really see what all the hype is about.

pam said...

I am with you!! And the movie, really wasn't that good...the acting was pretty bad (I thought)

I think you just need to be pre-teen, or teen age to get it:)

Well, I'm one of those TwiMoms who are Team Edward obsessed. I think I just remove the Robert from it and imagine him as Edward and since I LOVE Edward, it works for me. The funny thing is that I actually do kinda like Robert all on his own, quirky British accent and all. I'm kinda weird like that!

I don't see what all the fuss is about. (But then again, I'm not one to make a huge fuss and be "in love" with someone I will never even meet. That just seems so stupid. Isn't love based on relationships anymore? Is that an old-fashioned idea too? Is it too much to ask for someone to actually interact with a person before they start to go crushing on them?) I also think his voice is totally totally wrong in the movie from the book.

Melissa said...

It's not him at all. When he was first announced as the actor playing edward, all the tweens were pissed cuz he's not attractive.

He's just the personification of every little girls dream guy. Lucky him. I wanted a guy like Edward (not Robpatt) while I was reading the books.

Now the guy who plays Emmett... he's the hottie.

Suzie Que said...

Am I dating myself?! I think he's pretty darn cute and I am FAR from being a tween. The portrayal of Edward in the movie was awful but I find the guy to be eye candy. I can't explain my thoughts other than, "Hey, that guy is cute!"

Michelle said...

I think a big part of his appeal is that to a lot of the readers, he is Edward.

Have you ever heard him in an interview? He is really dull.

Carrin said...

I don't see it either. I think that Taylor kid is much better looking.

Allison said...

just caught up on about 2 weeks worth of your blogs - Have a great time in Disney! - remember to take it slow.....you probably won't get to see everything, so just focus on what is convenient. You will have a blast! where are you staying?

WackyMummy said...

I haven't seen any of the movies or read any of the books. I'm so out of touch. I'm still watching my DVDs from the Buffy series... now THAT was a vampire show worth watching. ;)

Diane said...

i don't get it either!! he's just yucky.

Jen said...

I am not in love at all. I don't get it either.

adlovegrove said...

When I read the books thats not what I pictured either.. Not very good looking in my opinion.

THANK YOU!!!!! I have been wondering the exact same thing for a LONG time...and just for record, I may be THE only person who has not read any of the books, seen the movie(s), or interested in anything related to this Twilight phase...and NEVER will be! :)

But I amglad to know I am not the only one who thinks this guy is no cuter than the guy next to me at the stop light in town....

Foursons said...

Those are my thoughts EXACTLY! They did not cast the movie well at all. The actors they chose do NOT resemble the characters in the book one iota. And that guy is just not that hot.

Foursons said...

Oh, and the movie stunk. Big time.

Night Owl Mama said...

FINALLY!!! Someone said it out loud. I too am still wondering. LOL

NOt a big fan of the whole vampire thing either gives me nightmares

Elaine A. said...

No, NO and NO!!!!!

I definitely don't get it either. I think the other guy is MUCH, MUCH hotter, you know the one that's dating Taylor Swift? Yeah, but I could be his mother probably so...ACK!

angie said...

I think he's cute........BUT, I'm certainly not smitted. That's the thing with movies made from books.......the actor never looks how I think they should. :)

Tiffany said...

I pictured him different too... I was totally in love with him as I read the book - Definitely preferred him over Jacob, but I agree - Not what I pictured.
