Comedian Ben Gleib mixes it up with Twihards at the LA premiere of the Twilight Saga: Eclipse. Twilarity ensues.
It also came out a few days ago that sparkly heartthrob Robert ‘”your dirty hair made you a star” Pattinson is related to Vlad the Impaler, the inspiration behind Bram Stoker’s Dracula. The two are actually related through none other than the British Royal Family. Pattinson is a distant cousin to Princes Harry and William, while Vlad was their distant uncle.
Genealogist Anastasia Tyler from Ancestry.com says “Tracing Pattinson’s family back to Vlad was difficult research, but the pieces that unravelled created the perfect accompaniment to the Twilight Saga. Without any myth or magic, we find royalty and vampires lurking in Pattinson’s life – making his story just as supernatural as the one he’s playing on screen.” It turns out, rather conveniently, that author Stephanie Meyer is also related to Dracula. I’m sure if you did a lot of “difficult research” you would find that I am related to Oprah Winfrey.
