'Buffy's' Emma Caulfield: 'Twilight's' Robert Pattinson is 'painfully good-looking'
"Buffy and the Vampire" star Emma Caulfield thinks "Twilight's" pale tousled British lad Robert Pattinson is ridiculously hot.
"He's painfully good-looking, a flawless-looking individual," she told The Dish Rag during our chat last week. "And I've heard him being interviewed and he's pretty self-effacing, which makes him all the more charming."
She also talks about the impact of "Twilight" precursor "Buffy" on her life and career, her love for sci-fi, "Avatar" and "Battlestar Galactica," being leery to see "Caprica," her personal "Lost" theories, and her take on the "Twilight Saga," as someone who knows a little something about vampires.
"I think I would be obsessed [with 'Twilight'] if I was 13," Emma admits. "You can't really go wrong with vampire stories because they are inherently interesting."
Caulfield, who stars in the new sci-fi rom-com, "Timer," is also working for one of her old "Buffy" bosses, Marti Noxon, on the new cable comedy series," Gigantic," due out in July, that centers around two young girls who have very famous folks.
"I play what Marti knows how to write for me, kind of an a**hole, but ultimately kind of lovable. She's obsessed with being famous and thin, so she's always hungry so kinda grouchy and always in couture."
On "Gigantic," she'll also be working with Meryl Streep's daughter, Grace Gummer, whom she describes as a carbon copy of her famous mom. "She could not be nicer... she's the centerpiece of the show," Emma explains, "a bit like Ellen Pompeo on 'Grey's Anatomy.'"
