Twilight author Stephenie Meyer: I feel guilty about Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart's fame pain
Stephenie Meyer's new movie The Host is released this month
Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson never wanted fame
Stephenie Meyer feels guilty about the attention the Twilight cast get
The author of the Twilight books says she feels for R-Pattz, 26, and K-Stew, 22, as they never wanted the fame that their roles in the movie saga created.
‘[Do I feel] guilt? Absolutely,' says Stephenie, 39.
‘Here's the thing: there are some actors who are looking to be world famous, to be that household name, and although they might discover that there are a lot of negative things involved in that, it's what they want.
‘But that doesn't apply to Kristen and Rob. That's what makes it kind of ironic and tragic.'
The writer, whose other novel The Host has now been turned into a movie due for release this month, isn't sure that the Twilight stars would have taken the roles if they'd known what they were in for.
‘They took all of my heat, which I feel bad about,' Stephenie tells The Times Magazine.
‘If they had the choice, I've no idea if they'd even do Twilight again. I just don't know. I think this has all come at a heavy price.'
