Or at least he is related to one!
Genealogists, who apparently have nothing better to do than research the lineage of a vampire movie star, have discovered that Twilight hunk Robert Pattinson is related to Vlad the Impaler, the person widely considered the inspiration for in Bram Stoker's Dracula.
That's right! He's related to freakin' Dracula!
Let's break it down, courtesy of the
Twi-Hards "researchers" at Ancestry.com:
So, R-Patz and Vlad III Dracula are connected through their relationship to the British royal family. In a minuscule way, R-Patz is a distant cousin to both Prince William and Prince Harry; Dracula was their distant uncle.
And there you go!
And guess what, Twi-Hards? Not only is R-Patz related to a vampire, but so is the Twilight creator, Stephenie Meyer.
Wonder if these researchers could find a way to trace Kristen Stewart's lineage to the disgruntled sloth? That would explain a lot.
