The same women and I are gathering again for an opening day sceening of Breaking Dawn: Part 2.
Like other Twilight fans, I buy my movie tickets weeks in advance.
In 2009, I attended the midnight premiere of New Moon with hordes of screaming teenage girls, young women and, well, older ladies.
Pattinson and Kristen Stewart, 22, who plays Bella, are an on-again-off-again off-screen couple as well.He cuddles her to sleep at night even though, as a vampire, he never sleeps.Edward doesn't care that Bella will age and he won't.Or, more directly, forgetting our age, she has created a youthful romance we wish could be our own.Much of the excitement about Breaking Dawn: Part 1 was that Bella and Edward wed — and went on a honeymoon. ) Check out the now married-with-child couple in a Breaking Dawn: Part 2 movie trailer below.Jacob Black, the third member of the film's love triangle, is portrayed by Taylor Lautner, 20.(In order to keep the role of Jacob, who between the first movie and the second matures from boyish teen to muscled vampire slayer, Lautner developed killer six-pack abs.) While crushing on the young Taylor Lautner/Jacob Black may be age-inappropriate, older fans can justify a Robert Pattinson/Edward Cullen attraction by noting that their crush is on Edward the character, not Pattinson the actor.Years later, in the course of daily, grown-up life, it becomes hard for couples to remember a time before babies and bosses, bills and to-do lists, beer bellies and less-than-firm bustlines. Our Twilight addictions will subside, or we'll get our fix by continuing to connect through our shared obsession.The arrival of Breaking Dawn: Part 2 is a bittersweet event for many a Twihard. I can count on my own intergenerational community of Twilight obsessives.He loves her for who she is, not what she looks like. In many ways, author Stephenie Meyer created the fantasy boyfriend we'd wish for our daughters (e.g.Edward doesn't believe in premarital sex), and the cautious, responsible, gentlemanly son we'd be proud to call our own.
