Fox News has a new interview with Vampires Suck star Jen Proske. Jen plays the part of Becca Crane, who is a parody of the Twilight Saga character Bella Swan.
In the interview Jen discuses how poking fun of Twilight is the highest form of flattery, and the fact that she is a fan of both the books and movies -
Were you a Twihard before being cast?
I had seen both the movies before I got cast. I was a fan of the books and the movies. I think “Twilight” is great. It’s such an amazing thing that everyone has created. Vampires are something exciting and sexy and fun to a lot of people, [including me.]

Your character, Becca Crane, is eerily similar to Kristen Stewart’s, Bella Swan. Did you intend to do that?
I didn’t want it to be an imitation of Kristen [Stewart]. I worked with the directors to find a balance [between] my own self as an actor and Kristen’s mannerisms and vocal patterns so that it was recognizable.
Will the cast of “Twilight” love it or hate it?
Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery and I really feel that this is something that they will love and be able to laugh at as well. It’s definitely not a bashing of “Twilight,” it’s something that’s definitely done out of love and inspiration from the phenomenon.
On the new Rob Pattinson and Taylor Lautner…
I think both of our guys are going to give Taylor and Rob a run for their money. I think Matt [Lanter] is going to give Rob Pattinson a run for his money. Chris [Riggi] looks great as a werewolf too. He has worked so hard to look as amazing as he does.
Will you get hate mail from Twihards?
This movie is something that both Twihards and the people who don’t like “Twilight” can find something that they love about it. I think the” Twilight” fans are going to get every single joke and little reference. I think the “Twilight” haters can find something to laugh at and enjoy seeing how much this vampire pop culture phenomenon has truly been used.
Finally, Team Edward or Team Jacob?
I’m Team Edward. Tell Chris Riggi I’m sorry.
I truly hope that they do not get ANY hate mail from Twilight fans because of this movie! It was a well done spoof. I couldn’t contain my laughter, it truly was great! A must see!
Vampires Suck hits theatres on August 18th.
