Max Irons & Jake Abel are the stars of Stephenie Meyer’s newest project, The Host. This article is featured in VMan Magazine.
Jake: “You see all these guys you are competing with, and suddenly you’re in a franchise that’s being compared to Twilight.”
Jake: “It’s more of a love box than a love triangle.”
Can you become the next Robert Pattinson?
Max: “It is a very lazy comparison, because Twilight was a phenomenon unto itself. Pattinson was chased down the streets of Paris before the films even came out. And he is doing well for himself. He has about five films with acclaimed directors lined up.
Jake: “A lot of people expect us to knock the Twilight cast. But Taylor Lautner is a really nice kid. Robert Pattinson, I couldn’t imagine the tremendous amount of pressure he was under — and he earned my respect when I saw him fight for certain projects. Water for Elephants is a great novel, the movie is what it was. That’s not his fault. That’s the risk; we’re the face of projects.”
