In this video from the LA premiere of The Host, Entertainment Tonight spoke to Saoirse Ronan, Max Irons, Diane Kruger, and Stephenie Meyer (who again addresses returning to Twilight) on the blue carpet. The video spends the most time focusing on Max Irons.
Because Max is a male lead in a Stephenie Meyer film adaptation, the Robert Pattinson comparisons are plentiful.
“I can probably name 10 actors who’ve been compared to Robert Pattinson,” Irons said at the film’s Hollywood premiere. “So it’s an honor — I think he’s doing very well for himself, he’s got some amazing projects coming out — so it’s a bit of an honor, but I think everyone’s an individual. But it’s nice to be likened to him.”
He also comments on rumors about his possible involvement in the film adaptation of 50 Shades of Grey.
“Jesus, rumors,” he laughed. “Hey, I’m open to anything, let’s go!”
