After a recent article in which Nina Dobrev stated that she had the advantage over other women in playing vampire roles on television and in the movies, Robert Pattinson has struck back.
"I'm not disputing what Ms. Dobrev said in the interview about where she was born and that was the center of the vampire legends in the past, I simply do not believe that makes her more qualified."
Pattinson, who started to walk away, met Taylor Lautner coming out and asked him the same question.
"No", stated Lautner, "I go along with you. Where you came from makes no difference. It's how you play the part."
"If you're doing a movie about Kyle Petty, you don't go looking at the right NASCAR driver to play the part, do you?"
When someone answered "No", he continued.
"Right! You would look at a lot of actors and ask them to try out for the movie if they are interested and try to get a contract signed by the best performer in that role."
Lautner added: "You might want a NASCAR driver as an 'adviser' though."
"Besides, we all now know that Pattinson here is related to the actual Dracula, Vlad The Impaler, so his connections are even closer!"
