Edward Cullen 2016? With the tremendous outpouring of support heaped upon the vegetarian vampire during MTV News’ Twi-Fight Saga, we wouldn’t be surprised if he eyed a presidential bid next. Which is all to say, yes, after more than 2 million votes, the hunky vampire was selected as the No. 1 “Twilight” character by fans. Three cheers for Eddie!
In fact, the final face-off wasn’t even a close contest. Edward battled lady love Bella Swan in the Championship Round, handily spanking her as he earned 70 percent of the vote.
It was a victory the bloodsucker’s real-life alter ego, Robert Pattinson, relished while on the black carpet for last night’s “Breaking Dawn – Part 2” premiere.
“I like that MTV just invents awards,” Rob said with a laugh when informed of his character’s honor. “They have, like, six different things.”
Once his own win sunk in, Rob then inquired as to the standing of co-star Kristen Stewart’s character, Bella Swan.
“Did she get second place?” he asked with a grin. “I want to see that. You have to call me back when that happens.”
