Celebrities who love 'Twilight'
Before settling into your seat at the movie theater for "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2," you might want to look around. The person sitting next to you could be Kelly Clarkson, Nina Dobrev, 50 Cent or one of the many other celebs who are admitted Twi-hards. Here's a look at a few of the famous peeps who are just as obsessed with the series as you!
Kelly Clarkson: After watching the first "Twilight," Clarkson became so obsessed with the vampire saga that she gave props to it on her website. "And by the way, i'm now on 'eclipse' of the twilight series and so is my mom, my sister and all of my friends," she wrote in 2009. "you could say we're a bit addicted and all searching for our very own personal 'edward.'" A few months later, she even serenaded a cardboard cutout of Robert Pattinson during one of her concerts! The "American Idol" alum also has confessed that her song "Empty As I Am" was inspired by the "New Moon" movie.
50 Cent: While he's definitely not a teenage girl, the rapper raves about "Twilight" as if he is one! When asked during an MTV interview in 2010 which celebrity he'd like to join his group G-Unit, 50 Cent answered Robert Pattinson. "'Twilight' ain't no joke," he said. The 37-year-old, who attended the red carpet premiere of "New Moon," also gushed about the franchise when he appeared on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" in 2009, citing its special effects and its impressive ability to rake in the money.
Nina Dobrev: The "Vampire Diaries" star is a "Twilight" fan, at least in part, for selfish reasons. The franchise helped to create the vampire phenomenon that blazed a path for her show, a fact she's more than willing to acknowledge. "I definitely love that I'm part of [the vampire trend]. I love the 'Twilight' movies," Dobrev told MTV after "Eclipse" cleaned up at 2011 MTV Movie Awards. "I think that we're all really happy for each other," Nina noted when asked by MTV News' Josh Horowitz if she felt a kinship with her vampire counterparts. "I'm very happy that they exist because we exist because of them. Their success is our success. I'm kind of sad the movies are almost over."
Rosario Dawson: The "Seven Pounds" actress found the vampire story addictive, to say the least. "I just read the first book, it's ridiculous, it's like crack cocaine!" she exclaimed to People in 2008. "I read it for 10 hours straight until I finished it." Dawson seemed to have a hunch as to why she liked the tome: "It's like Judy Blume and Anne Rice had a child and made this book. I'm so attracted."
Adam Lambert: The "American Idol" runner-up publicly lobbied to get his song "Suburban Decay" on one of the sagas soundtracks. "Hey, 'Eclipse,'" he asked during an interview with MTV in 2009, "want my song?" Lambert dubbed the tune "too theatrical" for his album, and noted that it contained a verse about "bloodlust." Although he didn't make the soundtrack, there don't seem to be any hard feelings, since Lambert is still a vampire lover. He dressed as a vampire for Halloween in 2009 and 2012, and posed for a picture as a vampire for a photo just last year when he ran into Catherine Hardwicke, the director of the first "Twilight" movie, pretending to take a bite out of her neck.
Barack Obama: It's much easier to understand why the President of the United States is thinking about the Bella and Edward romance when you think about the fact that Obama's a dad to two tweens. Back when Stephenie Meyers' books first became all the rage, it was reported that President-Elect Obama and his oldest daughter Malia, who was then 10, were bonding over the series. "They read all the Harry Potter books together and have moved on to the Twilight series," a source told Us Weekly.
Ryan Seacrest: The "American Idol" host has been known to read excerpts of the "Twilight" books on his morning radio show in Los Angeles. For the dramatic scene of Edward and Bella's breakup in the book behind "New Moon," Seacrest even lit a candle that he could blow out during the scene's final line. "Love, life, meaning ... over," he read dramatically.
Kendall and Kylie Jenner: The Kardashian sisters' ambitious younger half siblings Kylie, 15, and Kendall, 17, who are regulars at "Twilight" movie premieres, credit sci-fi franchises, such as "Twilight," "Harry Potter," and "The Hunger Games," with inspiring their next project. The models and Seventeen magazine fashion columnists plan to co-author a novel for young adults that will come out in summer 2013. We suggest that they call it Daybreak!
