Wordy Wednesday-what should have been?

If you're not a Twilight fan this post will mean nothing to you.

If you are a fan, this may be blasphemy.

I've made no bones about my feelings about Robert Pattinson.

He's ok as Edward. He'll do.

But he's not MY Edward...not the image I had in my head
when I was reading the books.

So the other day I came across something on the internet about
Stephenie Meyer being Mormon and went looking for details.

She IS a practising Mormon, BTW, and put in the movie contract
that none of the movies could be rated R because, as a Mormon,
she doesn't watch rated R movies! Good for you, Stephenie!

While I was searching, I discovered something very interesting...

Robert Pattinson isn't her perfect Edward either!

This yummy guy is;

Meet Henry Cavill, Stephenie Meyer's choice for Edward.


All I can say is wow. Yeah, he is MUCH closer to MY Edward!

So, you're wondering why they didn't transform
Henry Cavill into Edward Cullen?

By the time the movie deal was offered and then all
the kinks were worked out, Henry had hit the ripe old
age of 24, and they were afraid he was just too ole
to play the 17 (albeit 108) year old Edward.

Such a shame.

This last pic is off Stephenie Meyer's website.

Rare indeed.

You're welcome.

P.S. For those of you so inclined, there are pics out there of
Mr. Cavill shirtless-I was not comfortable posting those here.
However...let's just say he would be perfectly capable of giving
a certain, often shirtless, buff werewolf a run for his money physically.
As eye candy, anyway.
Something I wouldn't say about the current (hairy!) Edward!

OH MY! I didn't know 1. we shared the twilight thing and 2. that you felt the SAME way about Rpatz as I do! Here is MY edward:

He looks a lot like this other guy. I like 'em both!

I'm not a twilight person so I don't really keep up with all the hot guys in the movie. BUT, {Kimber may hate me for saying this},I never really understood the attraction to Robert Pattinson. I guess is just not my type! This guy Henry is pretty cute though...and I love that his name is Henry too!

first I could never hate you :)
and second WHA?!!!!
while I am in agreement that RPatz is NOT the Edward I pictured either when reading the books he IS yummy

jennifer...Stephanie's Edward is WOW!!!!
now I'm going to look at Julie's Edward
PS...I may have found my real life Edward--Le Sigh :)

Not a twilight fan, but this guy is way cuter than edward. The guy that plays edward creeps me out. Sorry to all the twilight fans out there. Just sayin

Foursons said...

I agree- he is so much closer to the Edward I pictured! They did a terrible job casting Robert P. as Edward. Terrible.

amanda said...

have not gotten into the twilight thing. BUT totally agree...YOUR edward is MUCH cuter. i have a few friends who think edward is cute...i don't think so!

Well, as you saw I have spent time with Rob P. He is not quite as sleazy in real life, LOL. However, this yummy man-candy does fit the Edward in my head a bit better and when he looks at me I do not feel like I need a hot shower and an antibiotic.
