The two Host stars opened up about the constant comparisons to Twilight and more. Check it:
Jake on working hard in Hollywood: “Nobody’s a star until they’re a star…Everybody is a Joe So-and-So and everyone’s a hack, until they’re not. You see all the guys you’re competing with, and suddenly you’re in a franchise that’s being compared to Twilight.”
Max on the comparison: “It’s a very lazy comparison, because Twilight was a phenomenon unto itself. [Robert] Pattinson was chased down the streets of Paris before the films even came out. And he is going well for himself. He has about five films with acclaimed directors lined up.”
Jake on the Twilight cast: “A lot of people expect us to knock the Twilight cast, but Taylor Lautner is a really nice kid. Rob Pattinson, I couldn’t imagine the tremendous amount of pressure he was under and he earned my respect when I saw him fight for certain projects. Water for Elephants is a great novel, the movie was what it was. That’s not his fault. That’s the risk; we’re he face of projects.”
The Host opens March 29th.
