Robert Pattinson argued with Twilight author Stephenie Meyer because he felt his character Edward Cullen was “depressed and suicidal,” revealed Meyer on Thursday during an appearance at New York Comic Con.

As Gossip Cop has reported, Meyer is currently promoting the re-release of Twilight for the novel’s 10th anniversary. The updated edition comes with bonus content, but she has also written a brand new novel, Life and Death: Twilight Reimagined, which tells the same story as the original but swaps the genders of the main characters.

“[Pattinson] was very, very passionate about the character,” Meyer told the crowd at her Comic-Con panel, adding, “Very intense.” In fact, the actor was so passionate about the role of the teenage vampire that he wound up fighting with Meyer over his perception of Cullen’s persona. “And we argued about Edward for several hours,” the author revealed. “Because he was convinced that Edward was depressed and suicidal!”

As Gossip Cop also noted, another revelation that came out of Meyer’s Comic-Con panel was her confession that she has canceled the release of the Twilight pseudo-sequel Midnight Sun because of Fifty Shades Of Grey similarities. Tell Gossip Cop what you think about Pattinson and Meyer’s disagreement over a supposedly “depressed and suicidal” Edward Cullen.
