Robert Pattinson Couldn’t Convince 'Twilight' Author That Edward Cullen Was 'Suicidally Depressed'

He was obviously right though.

Robert Pattinson apparently understood his "Twilight" character better than the woman who created him. 

According to BuzzFeed, the book series' author Stephenie Meyer stopped by Comic Con in New York on Thursday, where she spoke to fans about her new gender-swapping novel, Life and Death: Twilight Reimagined. In addition to hyping the book, she also revealed that the first time she met Pattinson, they argued about his onscreen character Edward Cullen for close to an hour.

Meyer said the British actor believed that Cullen was "suicidally depressed," which is easy to believe considering the fact he was an 100-year-old vampire forever stuck in the body of a 17-year-old. 

Meyer disagreed, but it seems like Pattinson had a bit more insight into how it would feel to be trapped in teenagehood for all eternity and doomed to continually repeat high school

"He was very, very passionate about the character. Very intense," Meyer said of the actor.

Intense, indeed.
