'Twilight' Author's Diss on '50 Shades' Author E.L. James Is Priceless (VIDEO)

LOL 55

It must be awesome to be Stephenie Meyer, the author of one of the most successful series of books in history: the Twilight series. Hey, if it weren't for Stephenie, Robsten would have never existed, ya know? But in some ways, it must kinda suck to be Miss Meyer, because everyone is always asking her about another mega-successful female author, E.L. James! James, aka Erika Mitchell, wrote one of the other most successful series of all time: the Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy. And as Stephenie has already made clear, she has not read Fifty Shades nor does she have any intention of it. Watch the look on her face when a TMZ reporter asks Meyer a Fifty Shades question. It's pretty hysterical.

Stephenie had already said awhile ago:

Erotica is not something I read. There’s a reason why my books have a lot of innocence.

She also reportedly said the books were "too smutty" for her. Which is all kind of ironic since the erotic trilogy was orginally fan fiction based on Meyer's super-innocent trilogy. Must kind of gall her to have her characters turned into sex-crazed ben wa ball hounds!

On the other hand, by the time the book reached print, there was little resemblance to the vampire characters Stephanie created. Still ... everyone knows! It's quite clear that Erika is a big fan of Stephenie.

Not so much the other way around. Catch Stephenie's reaction when she's asked if she has "any casting advice" for the upcoming Fifty Shades movie. It leaves nothing to the imagination about how she feels about it:


So, um, Stephenie ... Guess you won't be seeing the movie? Haha. Nobody give Steph a pair of CG-monogrammed furry cuffs for her birthday, 'kay?

Well, Stephenie, if it's any consolation, I haven't read E.L. James' books either. Or yours for that matter.

Do you think Stephenie was dissing E.L.?

She wrote a book where a werewolf is attracted to a baby. Erotica is bad, but pedophilia is okay?

I didn't even make it through the first chapter of her first book, the writing was so bad.  As E.L. James' books, not even interested.  Tripe, especially that loosely based on other tripe, is still tripe.

@What?! -not to mention bestiality! :)

They both suck. They both just have really good publicists

Meyer can't offer casting advice because the casting in her films wasn't anything to brag about especially K.Stewart ruining Bella. I can't even watch the movies because of that wooden plank mumbling her lines.

She's one to talk, necrophilia and bestiality are totally ok though? Either way, both books were horribly written as if they were first drafted on thin paper napkins with crayons and backwards Rs... Lmfao

well considering how myers technically ripped off a manga series called millennium snow and how her books glorifies domestic violence, i don't put much stock into anything she says.  That said, I barely got through the first chapter before I wanted to throw the book against a wall; her books are practically a guide on how not to write a novel

Necrophelia? Bestiality? Pedophilia? Domestic violence? Are you people for real? I'm no huge Twilight fan, but I'll call bullshit when I see it. The vampires are living, not dead unresponsive corpses - so no necrophilia. The werewolves are regular guys and only change when they are fighting vampires, they are human - so no bestiality. Jacob realized that Bella's daughter would grow up to be his soulmate, yes. However he was her protector until she became older. They dealt with that in the book - so no pedophilia. And domestic violence?! Because Bella had some bruises after really good wedding night sex? Which she enjoyed?! I'm pale and I costantly get random bruises from good sec with my husband. I guess he is "abusing me". Twilight is no great novel, but stop grasping at ridiculous theories to slam it. It's weak plot points and horrible grammar and sentence structure do enough.
