Meyer: R-Pattz And K-Stew Trouble Was My Fault
Twilight author feels guilty about young stars being thrust into the spotlight...
The author told The Times that she thinks the media scrutiny on the couple was the reason for their problems - and she insisted that neither had been fame-hungry.
"Here's the thing: there are some actors who are looking to be world famous, to be that household name, and although they might discover that there are a lot of negative things involved in that, it's what they want.
"But that doesn't apply to Kristen and Rob. That's what makes it kind of ironic and tragic. I just don't think they enjoy the parts [of fame] that other people would. And I totally get that, because it would not be my thing either.
"At the same time - and this is where the guilt comes from - it's created this nice, peaceful place for me. They took all of my heat, which I feel bad about. If they had the choice, I've no idea if they'd even do Twilight again.
"I just don't know. I think this has all come at a heavy price."
