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.

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”.

It’s out with the old and in with the new and for Twilight star Robert Pattinson. After splitting from his much-publicised romance with fellow Twilight star Kristen Stewart earlier this year, the British actor is said to be hanging out and hooking up with another starlet, Riley Keough.

Pattinson and Stewart broke up a few months ago, not long after Stewart admitted to having an affair with Rupert Sanders, the married director of Snow White and the Huntsman.

The 22-year old Stewart has reportedly already met Pattinson’s new love, albeit by chance. Stewart ran into Keough at a Joan Jett concert at West Hollywood’s House of Blues. The pair previously worked together in the movie The Runaways in 2010. The film was a biopic of Jett’s life.

K-Stew is reported to have called Keough, who just happens to be the granddaughter of American rock legend Elvis Presley, and expressed her displeasure with the reported romance between herself and Pattinson.

Keough has in the meantime been spotted with her ex-boyfriend Alex Pettyfer while Pattinson’s car was spotted at Kristen Stewart’s house over the weekend.
