New Moon star Michael Welch was interviewed by Buzznet and discussed everything from what he would say if he met Edward and Bella in real life to what is included in his daily routine! Here’s an excerpt:
Ah-nell-ee: If you met Bella in real life, what would you say to her? What would you say to Edward?
Michael Welch: I would tell Bella, “Listen girl. I know you’re caught up in this supernatural love triangle, but why don’t you give Mike Newton a shot? If the werewolf represents the stable option in your life, and the vampire is constantly fighting the urge to drain you of your precious blood, maybe you need broaden your horizons a bit and consider dating a HUMAN BEING! Just a thought.
“Oh! By the way, did you know that Kristen Stewart is playing you in the 4-part bio-pic of your life? Pretty cool huh?… What do you mean you’ve never heard of her? You haven’t seen that terrible movie Panic Room?… Well, what about Into the Wild, In the Land of Women, or The Messengers?… Wow, you need to get out more, Arizona. I’m gonna make you a list of films. You ever seen The Usual Suspects?… No?? Oh boy! You’re in for a treat! Come on, I’ll buy you a soda, then we’re renting some movies!!”
I would tell Edward, “Thanks a lot buddy! You’ve raised the bar to such unreasonable heights, the rest of us guys don’t stand a chance. We can’t sparkle you jerk! Not even Efron can sparkle. How do you think that makes him feel, huh??… Oh great, now you’re making Zac Efron cry Edward! You proud of yourself, huh, you feel like a big man?… Shhh, it’s ok Zac. I’m here for you pumpkin. Great, now I have to give him his juice box… And for goodness sake, would you take Bella out to see some movies? Rent Casablanca or something, or at least take her out to see The Hangover. Jeeze- louise Ed!”
Jolene Tangerine: What do you think would be your vampire power if you had one?
Michael Welch: Well that depends. Can I create a new power or do I have to choose one that already exists? If I could make my own, I would either want to fly or shoot lasers out of my eyes! Oh yeah. If I had to pick one that already exists, I would either want to see into the future like Alice or be a BA tracker like James. I know I’m not supposed to, but I love James.

He is right, Edward has definitely has raised the bar. C’mon guys, you better pull your socks up and take some tips from Edward!
