It seems Robert Pattinson thinks that Twilight fans should have moved on by now from the series which made him famous.

The British actor who starred in five Twilight saga films told a German magazine that he couldn’t understand why persons were so fascinated with the movies and asked what these people do with their days.

The 27-year-old Pattinson told “Interview” magazine: “The real odd thing about this Twilight target group is that they aren’t really teenagers. Most of them are older”.

This isn’t the first time that Pattinson, who also starred in the Harry Potter franchise, has insulted his fans.

He once said that the book by Stephanie Meyer was one that wasn’t supposed to be published.

The English actor, who broke up with fellow Twilight star Kristen Stewart and had dated her friend and Elvis Presley’s granddaughter, Riley Keough, wants to break away from his association with the vampire character that made him famous – Edward Cullen.

The actor hopes to break into the music industry. He is currently in Los Angeles filming the thriller “Map To The Stars”, a movie being directed by David Cronenberg.

Australian star Liam Hemsworth who is in this summer’s biggest bomb “Paranoia” crashed and burned on his first outing outside of last summer’s movie franchise hit “The Hunger Games”.

Several of the biggest franchise movie names including Daniel Radcliffe of “Harry Potter” fame and Robert Pattinson who made his name in the vampire series “Twilight” have also had starring roles outside of their better known series.

Radcliffe starred in eight Harry Potter films and has had some big splashes in the theatre since. He starred in the play Equus as well as “How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying”. He also starred in the movie “The Woman in Black” which gained mixed reviews and earned $127 million world-wide.

Radcliffe will next star as Igor in the upcoming film FrankensteinAnother British star, Pattinson, drew the crowds as Edward Cullen in Twilight but his other roles have been not so well received including his turn in the movie “Water For Elephants” alongside Reese Witherspoon.

He also starred in “Bel Ami” and “Cosmopolis” but neither film did well at the box office. Radcliffe’s Harry Potter co-star Emma Watson has had the biggest success so far starring in the acclaimed “Perks of Being a Wallflower” and “This Is the End”.
