Twilight: Its "Imperfect"ly Sexy Cast and the New Rules of Attraction

Twilight is being marketed as a film geared towards teens, but that's not stopping the women on our message boards from talking (and talking and talking and talking) about it.

This morning, Meredith Vieira interviewed Twilight's two lead actors, Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson, on TODAY (watch the video below). Meredith mentioned that Kristen was given a say in Robert's casting, and she asked Kristen what it was that stood out about Robert. Kristen responded something along the lines of, "He was so imperfect. The typical leading man is just so unappealing to me." She said he seemed frightened, as if he didn't belong at the audition--and she liked that about him. He responded, "Well, that's a back-handed compliment."

While I can understand why he'd think that, of course, I think he's got it all wrong. On the contrary, I found it so refreshing that Kristen was looking for someone to share the big screen who stood out for his uniqueness and not for being conventional, cocky and traditionally handsome (unlike so many movies, teenager-geared and otherwise... and I'm not namin' names!).

I'd have to guess that what attracted you to your boyfriend/husband was not that he was cocky and traditionally handsome, right? So what was it that caught your attention?  Maybe he even had--or still has!--some sexy, bad-boy (vampire-like... haha) traits?  Talk back in the comments section below.

Plus: Vampire lovin'? (Yes, really.) Take our poll!
