Twilight, the movie that’s inciting Beatles-level hysteria in teens around the country, opens on Friday. Based on the beloved series of books by the same name, the movie stars Brit heartthrob Robert Pattinson as head garlic-hater Edward Cullen, a vampire who falls for mortal teen Kristen Stewart. But Pattinson’s perfectly tossled hair, cerulean eyes and pointy teeth are just the latest in a lengthy tradition of hot vampires. From Brad Pitt to Salma Hayek to Kate Beckinsale, find out who else we’d let suck our blood.
People love starting rumors about celebs kicking the bucket, and while the trend has picked up steam in recent years, we’re old enough to trace back it to the Great Mayim Bialik Is Dead Rumor of 1997. Just last week the Miley Cyrus rumor was all the rage, and now we’ve moved on to Robert Pattinson, the hair-groping star of Twilight. But of course he’s still alive, eagerly promoting his new movie to the billions of horny tween girls who are going to pad his pockets with cash. Phew!

The shrieking. The screaming. The crying. It has to get to a person, and it looks like it’s gotten to Robert Pattinson. The Twilight star looked dazed and confused on the red carpet of the Twilight premiere last night in LA, telling MTV News “I left my brain at the door. It’s completely insane. You never expect it. … I’m completely deaf!” While he held it relatively together during the opening festivities, signing autographs and sucking in his cheeks for photos, snaps of the heartthrob leaving the premiere show him looking more than frazzled. Even vampires have long nights!
After the jump, check out a video of Pattinson doing his best to get through an interview at the premiere. It’s amazing he even heard the question.
