Nikki Reed Doesn’t Have to Like Her ‘Twilight’ Castmates

OMG, you guys! Nikki Reed has totally unleashed the fangs on her fellow Twilight costars! Seriously she is acting like such a major b-word, probably because she had a huge thing for Robert Pattinson and he, like, totally dumped her for Kristen Stewart! Now we know the rumors of the love triangle gone wrong are true, because Nikki majorly bashed the Twilight crew in a smoking-hot interview with Seventeen magazine! Wait until you read what she said because you are going to freak OUT! Check it:

We're not all best friends, and we're not all going to hang out together after the final movie is done.

OH MY GOD I CAN'T EVEN—wait. That's ... all she said? Really?

Uh, lamest feud ever.

In the full quote, Reed tells Seventeen,

In the beginning, it was innocent and fun, and we were like one big happy family—it was like being at sleepaway camp. And then success comes along and changes the dynamic.

Sure, I can see that. You star in a movie together, and suddenly three castmembers are like the most famous people on earth. With all the insanity surrounding Twilight, does anyone really care about a single character other than Bella, Edward, and Jacob? Not really. Whether or not she's jealous of the attention, that would definitely change the dynamic, no doubt about it.

She went on to say that she doubts the whole cast will be hanging out together after
Breaking Dawn: Part 2:

It was very, very sad. Let’s just leave it at that. Attachments grow when you’re working with the same people for so long. People are friends, people fall in love, people get in fights. We’re not all robots in that way. Sure, things have gone on, and it’s weird to have them be in the public eye.

Once again, this seems like a reasonable thing to say. It shouldn't be a major surprise that people who work on a movie franchise together don't necessarily end up as BFFs. I mean, it's like being in an office together. There are probably some people you love, some people you barely know, and a couple folks you'd cheerfully shove in front of a speeding freight train. Am I right?

Besides, add in the dating-your-coworker element and things were bound to get messy.
Twilight fans seem to want to make Reed's statements into some kind of dramatic East Coast-West Coast rapper beef, but to me, she just sounds human. Maybe it would have been better from a public relations standpoint to just stick to the typical movie promotion party lines—"We're like one big happy family!"—but I actually think it's kind of refreshing that she's being honest about things.

If I were her, I'd probably be glad as hell the franchise is coming to an end, because it must suck to be forever
compared to the superstars of the film. Frankly, I've never seen her in anything else, but it sounds like she has a shot at being known for something other than "That Cullen vampire who isn't Edward" in the upcoming Bret Easton-Ellis thriller Downers Grove. And hey, if that doesn't work out, there's always her music career.

What's your take on the Nikki Reed drama? Do you think her comments were out of line?
