Mitt Romney and his wife Ann were spotted at a Breaking Dawn Part 2 screening at a Del Mar, California theater this weekend. Romney admitted during his campaign that he is a Twilight fan.
According to a report from the New York Daily News, the former Republican presidential candidate and his wife were joined by two unidentified young men at the movie theater and the whole group walked to a pizza parlor across the street following the screening.
Mitt Romney told The TODAY Show that he was a Twilight fan after being asked about books he had recently read.
“I like silly stuff too,” he said. “I mean, I like the ‘Twilight’ series. I thought that was fun.”
The interviewer then asked the devout Mormon if he liked vampires, and his reply was priceless.
“I don’t like vampires personally. I don’t know any,” he said, laughing. “But you know, my granddaughter was reading it and I thought, ‘Well this looks like fun.’ And so I read that.” Stephenie Meyer, the author of all the Twilight books, is reportedly a Mormon. Do you think that might have had something to do with why the Romney’s checked out this last film in The Twilight Saga? Mitt Romney really should have promoted the impending release of Breaking Dawn Part 2 during his presidential campaign. Had he locked in the votes of those Twihards of voting age, he might have won another state or two during the election. Those Twihards are eternally loyal to their Twilight films and those viewers who share their passion.
