    Default Robert Pattinson and Vlad the Impaler "Dracula" are distant relatives

    LOS ANGELES Robert Pattinson isn't the only famous vampire in his family.
    Genealogists say the 24-year-old "Twilight" star is related to Vlad the Impaler, widely cited as the inspiration for the main character in Bram Stoker's "Dracula."

    Researchers discovered that Pattinson and the Transylvanian leader (real name: Vlad III Dracula are connected through their relationship to the British royal family. Prince William and Prince Harry are Pattinson's distant cousins; Vlad the Impaler was their distant uncle.

    "Tracing Pattinson's family back to Vlad was difficult research, but the pieces that unraveled created the perfect accompaniment to the Twilight Saga," saida genealogist at Ancestry.com. "Without any myth or magic, we find royalty and vampires lurking in Pattinson's life making his story just as supernatural as the one he's playing on screen."

    Oh please. If you go back far enough pretty much everyone with white european ancestry can be traced to a royal family and famous individuals.

    I was bemoaning all the stupid vampire shows on tv lately [sorry, I'm just not a fan], and my daughter agreed saying that vampires today are so lame. "They're all gay and sparkly." Yes, that was a direct reference to Pattinson.

    I think it was mentioned once that Colin Powell was related to the royals somehow. This is not news. Just shit to keep RPs name in the papers for this Twilight BS.
