Twilight might have made author Stephenie Meyer a household name, but if there's one thing she regrets, it's actually the problems the media spotlight on the film has put on Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart's desire for a happily ever after. Although they've had their fair share of relationship struggles this year, they made it back together just in time for the premiere of final film Breaking Dawn Part 2, but it's been anything but plain sailing since.
To be fair, if Stephenie hadn't written Twilight, we can't help thinking the magical relationship that is R-Patz and K-Stew might not have ever happened, but she still regrets the pressure the franchise has put on their desire to take Bella and Edward's loving into their personal lives.
Speaking to The Times, Stephenie said: "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," she continued.
"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.''
Ouch. Well we for one are glad that they did and have our fingers crossed that they'll sort themselves out and have an extremely snoggy future.
While they do that, let's just re-live the magic of all five films shall we?
What do you think about what Stephenie had to say?
