‘Twilight’: Fans Discover the Most ‘Cringe’ Line in the Franchise

A little more than a decade after the Twilight film series officially concluded, fans are now discovering the most “cringe” line in the supernatural romance saga. 

The Twilight films were based on the popular book series Twilight by Stephanie Meyer. The films starred Kristen Stewart as Bella Swan and Robert Pattinson as her vampire love Edward Cullen. The series takes the viewers through the story of the couple finding love in each other, eventually getting married, Bella becoming a vampire and she ends up having a child. With their vampire family and allies, as well as werewolf friends, the duo take on the vampire leaders, The Volturi. 

However, the cinematic saga had noticeably awkward moments. According to Unilad, among the long list of cringe lines in Twilight is the obviously weird metaphor from Edward Cullen, “You better hold on tight, spider monkey” to Bella. 

Another line that could arguably rival that first one is none other than the one from werewolf, Jacob. “Bella! Where the hell have you been, loca?”

And finally, another metaphor that was also pretty cringy was from, once again, Edward. “Stop trying to take your clothes off. It might be too late for my soul, but I will protect yours.” 

Kristen Stewart Once Called Her ‘Twilight’ Years a ‘Weird Time’ 

During a 2017 appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Kristen Stewart spoke about working on the Twilight films and how it was an entirely “weird time” for her. 

“I was 17 or 18 when it all kind of went down,” Stewart explained to DeGeneres. “And that’s the most uncomfortable, terrible, weird [time]. At the same time, it’s good. It kind of forced me to stand attention in this way, which I didn’t have that.”

The Twilight star also said that she was invested in the saga and how it mattered to so many people. “It was something personal that became not the most personal thing,” she reflected. “Which is awesome because to share that is great, but then at the same time [it isn’t].”

Although the Twilight films were a huge success at the box office, Stewart shared with The Hollywood Reporter that she wasn’t focusing on her past successes. “Actresses go crazy when they feel like they want to hold on to what used to be,” she stated in the 2015 interview. She noted that she was satisfied, happy, and looking forward to her acting career’s future.
