Robert Patttinson's James Dean Inspiration

USA Weekend's article on Robert Patttinson's inspiration for Twilight's Edward Cullen was James Dean. The cool and reclusive actor who died in a car crash at the age of 24. What do you think? Did Rob pull it off? I think so. Here is part of the article.

To get a modern image of a vampire, Pattinson initially watched movies such as "Interview With the Vampire" and "Blade." But he really discovered who Edward was by researching outcast roles not involving the undead. "Rebel Without a Cause was a big influence on the first ["Twilight" film] -- it influenced the hairdo and stuff," Pattinson says, laughing. "In lots of ways, it has a very similar character arc: An everyday girl brings this relatively strange individual out of his slump." 

A James Dean type -- that is, Pattinson -- always attracts teenage girls in flocks. "It's like The Birds, with teenage girls," says "New Moon" director Chris Weitz. "You turn around, and there would be a line of girls standing there."

Thanks for article tip @TwilightGuide_
