Colton Haynes wants everyone to know that he doesn't hate Robert Pattinson. In fact, he's never even met R.Pattz.
Why would people think he has a problem with Rob? Well, because Mr. Haynes auditioned for a certain starring role in Twilight…
Soon after Haynes started getting press for his work as a werewolf on ABC's Sunday-night vampire series The Gates, word got out that the 22-year-old former Abercrombie & Fitch model had read for the part of Edward Cullen.
"It's funny because I auditioned for it but it's not like it came down to me and Rob," Haynes told me earlier today. "But the headlines are 'Colton Hates Robert Pattinson!' or 'Colton On Hating Robert Pattinson.' I'm like, Are you kidding me? I don't even know him. It's more like, Congrats to him. He has a career that's going to last forever."
Besides, Haynes' career is coming along quite nicely, thankyouverymuch. Not only does he play watch-out-when-he's-angry Brett in The Gates, but he also appears in the upcoming Teen Wolf reboot on MTV (this time, he plays a human and not a four-legged killer) and Look on Showtime as a drug-fueled sex-crazed high schooler.
"He's a 17-year-old asshole who tries to be with this girl he likes in high school but she's a virgin," Haynes says of Look. "She won't sleep with him, so he starts making sex tapes with all her best friends.
"It's a blast," he laughed. "Showtime's all the drugs and sex and The Gates is the nice, teenage sensitive werewolf stuff. It's the best of both worlds."
Haynes was voted "Most Likely to Be Famous" in high school. Looks like he's having no problem living up to the title.
