The angry Twi-star has slammed ‘idiot’ hackers, who stole raw Twilight footage from his email account, and published it online
Over the weekend, photos emerged online, showing several of the most highly anticipated moments of the upcoming Breaking Dawn movie.
Several of the steamy snaps showed Bella and Edward having sex on honeymoon, while another shows Bella’s vampire transformation, and also the birth of their half-vampire daughter, Renesmee.
Now furious star Robert Pattinson has spoken out about the leak, slamming out at hackers who stole the raw footage directly from a Summit email account, and urging Twilight fans to help stop its distribution.
‘It’s just ridiculous. I literally can’t believe that it happened,’ he told MTV.
‘I want the Twilight troops to mobilize, all the good fans, and find out who these little sh**s are and just hack into their computers and destroy them. I’m being genuinely serious, Twilight fans … Punish them.’
‘Find out who hacked into my e-mail address, too, and destroy them,’ he continued. ‘It’s raw footage: It’s not even what people are going to see.’
Revealing he struggled to find the reasoning behind the leak, he said: ‘Why do this maliciously? You’re not a fan. You’re just a di**s. That’s all there is to it.I’d understand it more if they sold the stuff but, it’s like, “Oh, you just want to be annoying?”‘
Branding the hackers ‘idiots,’ Rob added the leaks were awful, ‘especially when you’ve been working on something for eight months.
‘It’s an exciting movie, and everything is so different, and a lot of people have worked really, really hard.’
Yesterday, bosses at production company Summit revealed they were ‘heartbroken’ that the unauthorized pictures had made their way on to the internet.
In a statement to fans, they said: ‘Dear Twilight Saga fans, as some of you may know, pictures and screen grabs of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn as a work in progress have leaked on the internet. We are extremely proud of this film and also extremely heartbroken to see it out there at this stage.
‘The film and these images are not yet ready or in their proper context. They were illegally obtained and their early dissemination is deeply upsetting to the actors, the filmmakers and Summit who are working so hard to bring these movies to fruition to you in November 2011 and November 2012.
‘Please, for those who are posting, stop. And please, though the temptation is high, don’t view or pass on these images. Wait for the film in its beautiful, finished entirety to thrill you.’
