Peter Facinelli’s Daughter Embarrassed by ‘Twilight’

Peter Facinelli may be beloved by Twi-hards in Forks and beyond for playing do-gooder doctor (and very well-behaved vampire) Carlisle Cullen, but Peter’s own 13-year-old daughter is a little embarrassed by her dad’s connection to the Twilight mega-franchise.

Facinelli’s wife Jennie Garth tells Parade that their daughter Luca Bella, like any teen, isn’t leaping at the chance to show off her dad at school:

She’s more embarrassed by it, actually. She’s like, ‘Let’s not talk anything Twilight. Don’t mention it. Wear a hat to my school.’ She’s a little embarrassed by it, she wants people to like her for her and not because of him, or want to come to our house because of that. It’s something we deal with. But she’s proud of him.

Though Facinelli was named worst vampire ever by the discerning critics at Rolling Stone (a charge Twi-fans vehemently denied), he will return to film Breaking Dawn this fall. If Luca is embarrassed by her dad’s fame now, she’s really going to be reeling after the final two installments of Twilight are revealed to the viewing public. Sorry Luca!
