A source close to the situation explained:
While The Host and Twilight are both science fiction love stories based on books written by Stephenie Meyer, the new franchise's hunky stars, Max Irons and Jake Abel, insist the similarities stop there!
“A lot of people expect us to knock the Twilight cast, but Taylor Lautner is a really nice kid. Robert 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 is what it was. That’s not his fault. That’s the risk; we’re the face of projects.”
And Max continued:
“It is 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 doing well for himself. He has about five films with acclaimed directors lined up.”
Us???! Lazy?! We're going to overlook that insult because you are just that damn beautiful, but until you guys prove yourselves the similarities will continue to be pointed out.
