If you’ve seen Eclipse then you know that the Twilight gods dropped a new piece of vamp ass in the laps of Twi-hards, causing them (er, us?) to froth at the mouth. Xavier Samuel plays the blood-thirst Riley (RIP sweet newborn), and he’s Australian, boyishly handsome and generally beefier than Robert Pattinson (photos) but without Taylor Lautner‘s Jersey Shore-esque muscles. In other words, perfs.
With Rob off eating Kristen Stewart‘s (photos) loquat pies and Taylor making out with a picture of his own abs, we thought our chances of landing a Twilight boyfriend were long gone. But with Xavier, hope blossomed in our delusional heart and we knew it would not be long before we were walking red carpets in Marchesa gowns as his better half. Until, that is, we were confronted with these pictures of him and his girlfriend strolling hand in hand in New York City.
You can imagine the kind of scribbling that went down in our journal last night. We wept, we mourned, we blasted Lykke Li‘s “Possibility” on repeat and destroyed our Xavier Samuel shrine while shoving Edy’s Cookies n’ Cream ice cream in our mouth. But then we came across these pics of Xavier and our new enemy hand in hand this weekend and glanced down at his atrocious man sandals and felt a little better about letting go. Rob may be taken, but at least we know we’ll never have to see his pasty white toes pressed up against tight leather anytime soon. And that makes it all okay.
