    Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart's Fame "Ironic and Tragic" Says Twilight Author Stephenie Meyer

    To say Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart are beyond famous is definitely an understatement.

    But it's a celebrity status that Twilight author Stephenie Meyer (and pretty much everyone else, for that matter) realizes is something that often leaves the duo feeling a wee bit uncomfortable.

    "Here's the thing: there are some actors who are looking to be world famous, to be that household name, and although they might discover that there are a lot of negative things involved in that, it's what they want," Meyer told London's The Times. "But that doesn't apply to Kristen and Rob. That's what makes it kind of ironic and tragic."

    Meyer added, "I just don't think they enjoy the parts [of fame] that other people would. And I totally get that, because it would not be my thing either."

    In fact, Meyer admits to a certain sense of relief that the spotlight eventually shifted away from her in the wake of the wildly successful Twilight Saga film franchise.

    "At the same time—and this is where the guilt comes from—it's created this nice, peaceful place for me. They took all of my heat, which I feel bad about," she said. "If they had the choice, I've no idea if they'd even do Twilight again. I just don't know. I think this has all come at a heavy price."
