Stephenie Meyer Agrees With Robert Pattinson That Twilight Sucks, So Now We’re All On the Same Page?

Stephanie Meyer The Host Book Launcg Coral Gables US February 19 2013

Whether you love the in/famous Twilight series so much that you alienate your family and friends due to your obsession or you hate it as much as Robert Pattinson does, you surely have an opinion on it. And, naturally, so does its creator, Stephenie Meyer, although it probably isn’t the one that you might expect. As a matter of fact, Stephenie just joined the “Wow, I Wish I Never Wrote That” club with a lifetime platinum membership because she thinks that the books and the movies are stone cold life-ruiners.

Sugarscape reported that in an interview with Variety, Stephenie confessed that she’s not into the series at all any more.

“I get further away [from Twilight] every day. I am so over it. For me, it’s not a happy place to be.”

Her stance on her work is pretty sad, if you think just long enough about it. Here is a woman who was able to share with everyone an elaborate fantasy world that she’d invented and written about, only to be her very own biggest critic just a few years later. It’s like spending a full day lining up dominoes all throughout your house in an effort to make the most epic chain reaction thing and then violently sneezing and Godzilla-ing the formation. In both cases, the parties responsible feel a crippling mixture of dread and regret.

She also discussed with Variety how awful she feels for being the reason that Kristen Stewart and Rob Pattinson have way more fame than they want or can deal with.

“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. 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.”

Well, I, for one, would just like to say that I know with a 99.9% certainty that, knowing all that they know now, neither Rob nor Kristen would go back in time and re-do their roles. For evidence of that claim that I just made, look no further than the fact that Kristen practically lost the ability to smile since making these films and that Rob makes a game out of how miserable he can seem whenever talking about them.

Rob Pattinson Discusses Twilight


Just look at that grimace, the disgust in his eyes, and the way he calls the first-born child of his character “creepy”. Those are all signs of someone who is thinking, “I have made all of the worst choices in life and now I must suffer through them.”

But worry not, little Robbie and anyone else juggling large amounts of the bad kind of fame because of this series. You don’t have to schlep through your dislike of Twilight in solitude. After all, you’ve got most of the world and, now, Stephenie Meyer on your side of the Twilight protest line.

      Ugh Sorry. That’s ridiculous. She’s ridiculous. If you wish you hadn’t written it, gimme all your money.

      • Jenni

        Also when will she apologize for 50 Shades of Grey?

      • MCR

        When she becomes senile enough to imagine she wrote it?

      • Olivia Wilson

        So you’re saying that E.L. James *isn’t* just her fancy pen name?

      • MCR

        Nope, I’m saying Meyer isn’t aware of it. Multiple personalities, I think, neither aware of the other’s existence, one of which writes girl porn while the other writes teen vampire stories.. Which would probably provide the basis for a successful YA novel with movie potential.

        Meyer is perfectly aware of 50 Shades. Not possible for her not to be. She took the high road about being ripped off. Could have sued and won, but was more interested in going forward with her life than engaging in a a lawsuit which takes a lot of time as well as money. So what would she have gotten out of it? MOre money she didn’t need. Smart woman.

      • Jaidyn Page

        Stephenie mayer wrote Fifty Shades or Grey?

      • Alexis Rhiannon

        No, but it’s Twilight fanfic, so we’d still like an apology.

      IF Stephenie said that then it is because she doesn’t fully understand the significance of what she wrote in Twilight. Twilight is perfectly named. It is the end of the Tristan and Iseult legend which ruled Western Civilization concerning all the rituals of love and marriage for 800 fucking years until the pill. As Nietzsche has said, “Only what is over can be fully understood.” And that is what she has given us. The full understanding of Courtly Love in all its splendor, passion, death, courtship, engagement, marriage, and ritualistic behavior. Meyer did it perfectly. Every nuance and turn is in place even with its inversions.

        But Twilight is not night. It is not over. It’s ghost will be around for a long time.

      • Olivia Wilson

        You’re probably right about that.

    • Rachel

      It’s just cheesy young adult romance novels based on a dream she had, not Harry Potter. She cashed in, enjoyed a little bit of fame, and moved on. Good for her, after seeing the way the movies turned out i’d be ready to move on too. In fact I did lol couldn’t even make it to the last two

      • Olivia Wilson

        Me too! I popped in to see what all of the madness was about and was…not impressed, haha.

    • Drama Queen

      It’s like giving birth to a baby and then speaking out: “I wish I’d never brought it into this world.”

      Why would you ever turn against your own creation?

      • Olivia Wilson

        Well if your creation cries and poops a lot…

        Kidding, books don’t poop! (I think)

      • Mierzwiak

        Poop don’t poop, right? :)

      She didn’t invent this world. She might have said she got this ‘idea’ in a dream, but it was completely ripped off from The Vampire Diaries. I refuse to believe this was original in any way.

      • Kristen

        Yes. She totally ripped off a series that began in 2009 with her books that were published between 2005 – 2008. That’s pretty impressive. LOL

        I hate Twilight, but saying she ripped off a TV show that didn’t exist when she wrote the books, well, that’s just hilarious.

      I thought Twilight sucked big time from the first line of the book. I read all of her books and it felt like I was going through hell ugh. But for a writer to say that, I think it’s pretty retarded LOL. Why would you write a book if you’d regret it later? LOOOl the worst autor possible. Please top writing books if you’ve got no talent!

    • Roxy

      Guilt, regret, pain…nonsense! The vampire has always been a metaphor…the bad boy, unconditional love, bite being a metaphor for sexual intercourse and loss of innocence. Changing the girl into an experienced/enlightened person. B.S. on that, but, nonetheless experienced.

      And, the movies were absolutely beautiful with their richly mysterious, & atmospheric surroundings. Beautiful people. And, sexy. Nice. And, likeable characters. Not highlighting the low-life vile scum so many movies try to pass off as average teenagers.

      Lighten up everybody (Stephenie, and stars). I can see the stars dissing it in order to smash the lingering personna. But, Stephanie…yes, you should have written it. Never feel bad about writing from the heart. Good grief! It’s lovely and enjoyable.

    • Elizabeth Cumbo

      I think maybe she doesn’t necessarily dislike Twilight, but doesn’t want to be known as the Twilight lady for the rest of her writing career? Like start over, start a new series?
