Robert Pattinson Thought His "Twilight" Character Was "Suicidally Depressed"

He argued with Stephenie Meyer for about an hour.

Stephenie Meyer stopped by New York Comic Con today to discuss her new book, Life and Death: Twilight Reimagined, to the delight of her fans.

She talked about her new surprise project, and how she understands it's supplementary to the original stories and was nervous about its release.

And how she's sure Midnight Sun, the book most fans were expecting for the 10th anniversary, is cursed.

But she also shared that when she first met Robert Pattinson, they argued for almost a whole hour about his character, Edward Cullen.

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

Pattinson believed Edward, the 100-year-old vampire trapped in the body of a 17-year-old, was "suicidally depressed."


And Meyer was like, "Really? I don't think so."


Edward does brood a lot. It's kind of his whole, ya know, thing.
