Alex Meraz (aka Paul) attended the debut of Karl Lagerfeld & Rachel Bilson’s original film series inspired by Magnum Ice Cream at the Tribeca Film Festival on April 21st!
Alex talked with Celebuzz about his wife being Team Edward!
Twilight beefcake Alex Meraz might be a heartthrob among the film’s “werewolf” fans, but he still can’t get his wife to leave Team Edward.Celebuzz!
“That’s a battle I won’t ever win,” he joked to Celebuzz. “She was a fan of the original books and first movie. She loved Robert Pattinson and wanted to be a vampire girl. It was the craziest thing.”
He’s not too upset about her loyalty to R.Pattz’s character though, because it was her devotion to the series that eventually landed him the role of a hot-tempered werewolf named Paul in New Moon and Eclipse.
“She was the one who told me about the audition and pushed me into getting a role,” he said.
Ironically, once he landed the gig, she only had one ground rule: no spoilers.
“It’s funny. She knows the plot but gets annoyed when I talk about what’s happening on set. I guess it ruins the mysticism of what she loves about it,” he added.
You can see Alex up next in Breaking Dawn: Part 1, which arrives in theaters November 11.
