According to an interview she did with The Times, Stephenie Meyer blames herself for Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart’s troubles. Because, you know, it’s all her fault and totally not theirs. Sigh.
When asked if she feels guilty about their issues, she told The Times: “Absolutely. Here’s the thing: there are some actors who are looking to be world famous, to be that household name, and although they might discover that there are a lot of negative things involved in that, it’s what they want.
“But that doesn’t apply to Kristen and Rob. That’s what makes it kind of ironic and tragic.”
Meyer admitted the main source of her guilt comes from the fact that they have had to deal with all of the public attention, something that she has mostly escaped from.
She added: “I just don’t think they enjoy the parts [of fame] that other people would. And I totally get that, because it would not be my thing either.
“At the same time – and this is where the guilt comes from – it’s created this nice, peaceful place for me.
“They took all of my heat, which I feel bad about. If they had the choice, I’ve no idea if they’d even do Twilight again. I just don’t know. I think this has all come at a heavy price.”
Personally, I think it’s absolutely absurd for her to feel guilty over their problems. It’s not her fault in the least, but theirs. Look at the Harry Potter cast for example, they are doing pretty well for themselves, and that is their own doing, not Rowling’s. So why would Meyer blame herself for the route Robert and Kristen took? If they didn’t want to be in a big blockbuster hit, then they should have stuck to the indie flicks they were making before Twilight.
Stephenie Meyer is just being ridiculous. But what do you think?
