Actress Abigail Breslin talks about her Twilight obsession in her recent Nylon article:
Breslin, predictably, loves the Twilight books. “I’m a crazy, obsessed fan. I went to see the first one on opening day,” she says. “But I felt left out because everyone in the audience had Twilight T-shirts and I didn’t. So I have Twilight T-shirts now. And have you seen those Twilight water bottles? I have one of those.” Her concerns right now include getting a new cell phone (“no luck on that”) and having sleepovers (“my cousin Jen came over for the last one. We did each other’s hair, watched The Office, talked about Twilight stuff.”)

Saoirse Ronan of the Lovley Bones talked about Twilight in a recent interview with Hollywood.com! Read the highlights below or read the whole interview at Hollywood.com by clicking here!
When reading a novel, most of us develop our own images of its characters based upon our interpretation the text. It must have been a bit surreal for you, having already played Susie, to picture yourself within the context of the book.
SR: Yeah, it’s weird. I really sympathize with the likes of Kristen Stewart, who’s playing Bella in Twilight. I think teenagers can make their points more well known than adults, and they feel quite strongly about things — [especially] with a book like Twilight, which I read and loved and that everyone just was sort of obsessed with. And if anyone has their own image of what Bella should be like and then they see Kristen, everything is blamed on her, you know? Luckily, that hasn’t happened for me, but because I’ve done about four movies now that have been based on books, I can see how people would be like that — and even how I would be like that. But I wouldn’t blame the actor or anything. I felt a little bit of pressure, not only because [The Lovely Bones] was a book but because the whole movie was, in a way, on my shoulders. But I wouldn’t have it any other way.
When I interviewed Kristen for New Moon, I was struck by how protective she was about her character.
SR: Yeah, it doesn’t seem to her like she’s making a movie that has about three sequels and is based on a book and all the teenagers are going to see it. It seems to her that this is a very serious role that’s important to her, and I respect her for that. I felt the same way when I did Atonement and people would come up to me and say, “God, that was an awful child that you played. She was such a bitch.”
