‘New Moon’ Star Robert Pattinson: In Real Life, Edward Cullen ‘Would Be An Axe Murderer’

You may find Edward Cullen’s brooding, dark nature kind of sexy and attractive, but the man behind the character, Robert Pattinson, thinks it’s all kind of creepy.

“It’s weird, but girls always seem like that. Being a guy, you always just look at girls and think, ’why are you with that guy?'” he told OK magazine in the U.K. “With virtually anyone, the nice guys always seem to come last. You always get weirdos like Edward who seem to attract women for some reason.”

The kicker comes where he explains that in real life, his alter-ego wouldn’t be a vampire but something, quite possibly, even darker. He said, “If Edward wasn’t a fictional character and you met him in reality he is like one of those guys who would probably be an axe murderer or something.”

And, for the ladies out there who always get RPattz and Edward Cullen confused with one another (we, too, have referred to him as Edward Pattinson), the British heartthrob wants you to know: They are not the same guy. “I had no idea people could get so obsessed. But it’s not scary — it’s amazing,” he said. “People just project their idea of my character on to me and they just seem to assume that I’m the same, when in reality I’m not.”

So, what do you think Edward Cullen would be like in real life (aside from being your boyfriend)?
