Good looks. Check. Experience playing a vampire. Check. Middle name Thomas. Check. Only has sisters. Check. Seems like Robert Pattinson would be Paul Wesley's first choice to play him in the movie version of his life, right? Wrong.
"Robert Pattinson is the like the last person I want to be compared with," he told Seventeen magazine. "I think any girl would throw me under a bus to be within five feet of Robert Pattinson. I actually think he's an attractive guy. And I watched most of Twilight, and I think he was really intriguing."

It's a very original story, and it's important to me that my character and the whole story's judged for what it is."
