As the promo tour of "Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2" is about to start, everyone is wondering if Kristen Stewart will have an awkward chemistry with her on-screen husband and off-screen ex-boyfriend Robert Pattinson. But Christian Serratos, who plays Angela Weber, one of Bella's mortal friends, in all five movies of the series, says the controversy of their private lives will not affect the movie and its box office performance.
In an interview with US Weekly, Serratos was asked whether Stewart and Pattinson's fans will be turned off by the scandal. She replied, "Of course people are fans of us now, but I think above anything, they're fans of these characters. I don't think anyone's really gonna give a s--t. They're gonna see the movie; it's going to be awesome."
While Serratos thinks fans will save the movie from the trouble created by the stars and their personal lives, box office expert Paul Dergarabedian told Hollywood.com differently. hurt. He said, "The fans are so romantically tied to this movie in both the real-life romance and the on-screen romance, so I'm sure this is hitting them pretty hard." On the other hand, he added, "There's a soap opera going on off-screen, and people love to follow that. I think it only serves to raise awareness of the movie."
The issue came to light early last week when People magazine released pictures of Kristen Stewart with her Snow White director Rupert Sanders. Stewart later released an apology letter in the magazine and said she had made a mistake and "really loved Rob."
"Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1" earned $238.5 million worldwide during its opening weekend, according to the Wall Street Journal. It remains to be seen how "Breaking Dawn Part 2" will perform when it comes out at Thanksgiving.
