VIDEO: Joss Whedon Calls Edward Cullen a Wimp

Joss Whedon knows his vampires.

Way back in the day, the man behind Dollhouse created a little show called Buffy the Vampire Slayer, which chronicled a vampire slayer (aptly named Buffy) who falls for one of her undead prey (Angel).

So when MTV quizzed him about that other vampire sensation that’s been getting some attention lately, you can bet he had an opinion or six to share. 

Asked who would win in a brawl between Robert Pattinson and his own vampiric creation, Whedon shot back, “I think Robert Pattinson is really cool. Angel would kick the s**t out of him. He’s Angelus. There’s no Edward Cullunus. He just gets shiny in the sun. Boreanaz would have him down in a heartbeat. No offense, cause he’s hot.”

Sure sounds like a challenge to us. Check out the video evidence below:
