While walking the red carpet at the Twilight: Breaking Dawn - Part 2 premiere The Host leading actors, Saoirse Ronan, Max Irons and Jake Abel, admitted that they were a little overwhelmed by the mega successes of Meyer's first franchise.
"You can't expect it too much because it may not happen. I mean, this is such a massive scale for Twilight because Twilight is so so huge, and I think that's something that can't even really enter into your head because it is so massive. But it is mad though. But it's great that all these people have been out here since Thursday because they love the book and they love the films so much that they're willing to stay out here."
While Saoirse isn't getting her hopes up, her fellow actors have already gotten a taste of what fame by looking up The Host news on the interweb.
Max explained the moment he realized this movie was a big deal, telling reporters:
"I became aware of a number … eight actors who were up for Ian and [his character] Jared, at which point looking at them, their biceps and facial hair, I just gave up. So when I finally did get the phone call, it was a good day."
WHAT? That's cray! Max is super hottie!
Perhaps modesty is a quality the director likes in his actors, cuz Max' co-star felt the exact same way. The Jake confessed:
"I saw the four of them that were up for [his role] Ian, and I was like 'Well, that would've been fun.'"
We think these guys are in for a BIG surprise!
Twi-Hards will be looking to fill the Twilight-sized void in their soul, and The Host will make a perfect replacement.
We give them three years before they have 4 personal assistants, and million dollar cars. LOL!
