"There was an interview where somebody asked me how I was feeling at that moment with everything that was going on with 'Twilight,' and I said, 'You know? I'm really devastated right now, because I have never heard the amount of criticism and hurt and pain from some things that I've read going on the Internet [about me] right now, like, 'She's fat' and 'She's ugly' and 'She's not blond' and 'She's supposed to be the most beautiful girl in the world?' and 'Couldn't they cast someone who was remotely beautiful?' It's like, thank God I'm not so callous that I'm totally desensitized, but I am sensitive and that really hurt my feelings."
-"Twilight" and "New Moon" star Nikki Reed, admitting that she is engaged in the online fervor surrounding the vampire-centric film series. The actress was responding to a question posed by a reader on the site as a part of the ongoing series of "Twilight" stars answering fan questions. She also added that though the thought has crossed her mine, she doesn't get involved in the Internet rumors herself. "I've joked with Kristen [Stewart] a few times about how tempted we are to defend ourselves. But there's no point," she said. "For every one person who says something, you always hear about the squeaky wheel or the plane that crashes. There might be a person that is really mean, but [you hear about them, not] the million people that say really nice things."
"New Moon," the second film in the series, hits theaters on November 20, and you can stay tuned to MTV News, MTV Movies and Hollywood Crush for all the latest insider information, cast interview, exclusive clips and fan reactions.
