I did. But I was never against Rob Pattinson playing Edward. Besides, I think that Rob fits Bella's 'beautiful boy' description better, even though Hayden has the tall, brooding look down to a science.
With that said, everytime I re-read the Twilight books, I always see Rob in my mind as Edward (except he speaks with that delicious Brit accent of his).
Totally! i have a friend who saw Hayden as Edward- and for a minute i considered it, but couldn't really imagine him being Edward...i don't know for some reason it just didn't fit for me. Sure, Hayden's gorgeous, but it seems to me he doesn't really have that certain charisma that Edward has. As for Robert, he pulls it off perfectly
Not only that- but it's true, Edward's physical descriptions are from a matter of perspective---BELLA'S PERSPECTIVE. So in many ways, just cause she says he's beautiful doesn't mean he will be to everyone else; we all have our own opinions as to who is attractive/unattractive you know? That's also another reason why i hate talking to people who become arrogant and say "ROBERT'S NOT HOTT! UGH HE'S HORRIBLE!" because just cause someone says a guy is beautiful doesn't mean he is- it's all a matter of interpretation and opinion...
