Twilight Drivel Forces Actor Jim Sturgess Onto Twitter

Former LA Times staffer Lorenza Muñoz has a fun interview on The Daily Beast with 29-year-old British actor Jim Sturgess, whose romantic drama One Day with Anne Hathaway opens today.

Sturgess tells Muñoz that he never really had an interest in joining the Twitter ranks. However, he’s there now as @mrjimsturgess (that’s his profile pic, left), and it’s all thanks to an annoying impersonator:

Sturgess was forced to start tweeting only because a fan had created his own Twitter account posing as the actor. While initially the impostor seemed benign, Sturgess drew the line when the pretender began tweeting about the Twilight series and the romantic escapades of Bella and Edward.

Sturgess also explains how shocked he was at the poor box office showing of an adventure film he recently made that was produced by Scott Rudin, directed by Peter Weir, and co-starred Colin Farrell and Ed Harris. Bemoans the poetry-loving Brit: “You don’t have any idea how any film can exist unless it’s a superhero film.” Or a teen vampire flick.
