Fans wait their turn for Twilight star

KING OF PRUSSIA, Pa. - November 13, 2008 Teens and tweens were screaming about one thing Thursday in King of Prussia, or one man, more specifically, Robert Pattinson.

Pattinson is the star of the best selling book series turned movie, Twilight, a modern day love story between a human and a vampire.

The big screen heartthrob, who also starred in one of the Harry Potter Movies, signed autographs for almost two hours, but fans started lining up to see Pattinson just before midnight.

Fans only got about 15 seconds with the star, but they said it was worth it.

"When I first saw him, I was taken back, his hair, he's just lovely, but I got what i wanted to say---i told him he is an inspiration," Daria Rose of Broomall said.

"He was awesome, he was so sweet, he looks you right in the face, he's so sweet, it's amazing," Diana Enes of Riverside said.

The actor, himself, was taken back, too.

"Here was nuts, generally just really speechless people, here it's like one in three people weeping. So it was crazy," Pattinson said.

Twilight opens Friday November 21.
