Despite what a super-legitimate sounding website like Ancestry.com might be telling you in order to cash in on some of the Twilight: Eclipse traffic, Robert Pattinson is not related to the world’s first bloodsucker. Because vampires aren’t real. Are we actually having this conversation? Fine.
Robert may be (very distantly) related to Vlad III Dracula, who was the influence for Bram Stoker‘s legendary story. In which case, R-Patz is the closest living person we can blame this entire vampire insanity on, so you know what? Go ahead and pin this one on him. Did you know Taylor Lautner‘s great-great-great grandfather was actually half-wolf, half-abs? True story.
