Twilight Fans Line Streets and Media Surprised Again

I suppose I should be used to it by now, the assumption that Twilight fans only read Twilight, we only like virginal movies, we are all teenagers, and we have no outside interests.

The reporter from The Gothamist got quite the education checking out the line of Twilight fans lined up to see Robert Pattinson in the Cosmopolis premiere. One of the people on line was a 60-year-old grandmother and her husband!

Margaret Burton (L), 24, film student from NJ, says, “[Rob’s] charming, talented, a musician. He’s a chameleon. He’s a risk taker like Johnny Depp. If I get to see him, sleeping over will be worth it.” On his split with K-Stew: “That’s their issue. It’s private. Who am I but a fan? I just admire their work.”

Lisa Maldomado (R), 21, student arrived yesterday by herself, made friends with Margaret, and says people keep asking them what they’re protesting

Most fan reaction was similar to the girls quoted above. See the whole article and more fan reaction on The Gothamist. (Note: click through their pictures to see the quotes)

    Love it!!! We’re not a bunch of clueless teens and tweens! When will they ever learn?

  2. People are always clueless about Twilight fans. Heads up : don’t read the comments under that article, they’re vicious and cruel.

    Its very confusing. I know media outlets at least skim material from other media outlets. 4 years of surprise seems pretty clueless.
    Good to hear Gothamist was focusing on sensible fans!

  4. I love what Margaret Burton says. Intelligent, articulate and the complete opposite of that video of the “crying, rabid, my-life-is-ruined because of Kristens’s actions fan.”

  5. This reminds me of last year in the twilight marathon for breaking dawn pt1 . There were at least around 8 ladies sitting together , from 60 to 70 year old, I was like WOW !
