MTV has a new interview available with Kellan Lutz and Nikki Reed, where they ask the cast members some of the fans’ burning questions. In this interview, Nikki shows her appreciation for us moms!
MTV: Nikki, Jenbarns76 asks: “I was wondering if you ever take a look at the fan sites that have popped up all over the Net.”
Reed: Well, I’m sort of obsessed with the TwiMoms. They’ve definitely been the nicest to me — so thanks, TwiMoms! They’ve made me love the books. [But Web sites are dangerous because] it’s really hard for me to not be honest. It’s really hard for me to watch what I say. Because I honestly believe everybody has good intentions, and it gets me into a lot of trouble.
MTV: Like what?
Reed: There was an interview where somebody asked me how I was feeling at that moment with everything that was going on with “Twilight,” and I said, “You know? I’m really devastated right now, because I have never heard the amount of criticism and hurt and pain from some things that I’ve read going on the Internet [about me] right now, like, “She’s fat” and “She’s ugly” and “She’s not blond” and “She’s supposed to be the most beautiful girl in the world?” and “Couldn’t they cast someone who was remotely beautiful?” It’s like, thank God I’m not so callous that I’m totally desensitized, but I am sensitive and that really hurt my feelings. And the TwiMoms made this book for me that was this huge book that they had collected letters from people all over the world that just said the nicest things about me. Like, it couldn’t have been a better ego boost.
