Young Fan Asks Twilight Star Robert Pattinson to 'Bite Me'
Pattinson, who plays vampire Edward Cullen in the upcoming flick (opening Nov. 21), recalls a fairly unusual request he recently received from a 7-year-old girl.
"She went really quiet and she was like, 'Can you bite me?' " Pattinson, 22, told E! Online. "It wasn't a joke ... I looked at her and thought, 'Do you know what you're saying?' "
Pattinson also revealed that he put off auditioning for the high-profile role for five months because the script described the character, created by novelist Stephanie Meyer, as "the ideal, perfect man."
"I felt like an idiot being like, "Hi, I'm here for the ideal man audition," he said.
He eventually landed the role – one that required he develop a six-pack – and now he has tweens shrieking at the sight of him during appearances for the vampire movie.
"It's pretty nuts," he says. "It doesn't seem very real at all. I just go to these different cities and people start screaming."
