FKA Twigs Hasn’t Seen Robert Pattinson In ‘Twilight’ & Let’s Be Real, This Is A Good Thing For Several Reasons
Well, no one needs to worry that FKA Twigs will ever confuse her boyfriend Robert Pattinson for his vampiric, sparkles-in-the-sun alter ego, Edward Cullen. Because FKA Twigs admits she has never seen Twilight, and to be honest, that's probably a good thing. Yeah, I said it. Sorry, Team Edward. (Is that even a thing anymore?)
Speaking with the UK's Sunday Times, the singer revealed she has never seen Pattinson in his most famous role. (To be fair, she also avoided confirming or denying that the two are engaged, instead questioning the reporter: "Who told you I was getting married? You might read somewhere I'm a monkey and it doesn't mean I am.")
"I don't understand what the levels [of fame] are," she continued. "I'm a bit naive. I don't read Heat [magazine], for example. I don't engage in that world, even with myself, even with my own career."
Let's get real. No one expected FKA Twigs to see Twilight, and it's probably relieving AF to her BF-and-maybe-fiancé that she hasn't. It's no secret that Pattison is adverse to fame (and probably hates Twilight himself), so I imagine that he's thanking his lucky stars that FKA Twigs hasn't subjected herself to watching him fly around with bloodshot eyes and partake in a break-the-bed sex scene with his then-girlfriend.
In fact, FKA Twigs joins the ranks of other celebs who have never seen their significant others in the roles that made them famous. Like how Joshua Jackson's longtime girlfriend Diane Kruger has never seen Dawson's Creek, even though watching her boyfriend play Pacey Witter would probably make her fall even more in love with him. Just sayin'.
Still, it would be significantly awkward for FKA Twigs to watch Robert Pattinson in the role of Edward Cullen. For one, Pattinson has blatantly stated his strong dislike of both Edward and the Twilight franchise, so Twigs may not want to see her boyfriend in something that he doesn't necessarily feel proud of. And then there's the whole Kristen Stewart side of things, which certainly ups the awkward factor. Not only is this the movie where Pattinson and Stewart met, fell in love, and dated IRL, but to watch them in love scenes knowing it was also happening off-screen... well, that may just be too much for one person to handle. And who could blame her?
Ultimately, though, I imagine R. Pattz and FKA Twigs' relationship like this: The two get home from a long day of canoodling at Coachella or whatever it is they do, sit down with a glass of wine and some cigarettes, and discuss all the ways in which the Twilight franchise is ridiculous. And then they live happily ever after, Volturi (and Stephanie Meyers) be damned.
