If there was a showdown between Robert Pattinson and Daniel Radcliffe and their respective magical characters, Edward Cullen and Harry Potter, who would win: the one whose skin naturally shimmers or the one who could use magic to make his skin shimmer, if he so chose? You decide:
Daniel Radcliffe has a stunt double willing to almost die for him, while Robert Pattinson just has special effects to make up for his physical shortcomings (like being able to climb a gigantic tree).
Both actors have done racy photoshoots: Daniel Radcliffe wins, however, with his ripped bod in a naked photoshoot with a horse. Robert Pattinson decided to stay a little more covered up in a bathtub.
Edward Cullen’s James Dean-esque haircut definitely beats Harry Potter’s little-boy half-chili-bowl.
Harry Potter needs a wand to fight foes, while Edward Cullen does not. Harry Potter, however, can do a lot more damage with his magic, but apparently can’t figure out how to use it to fix his eyesight. I’ll call this one a draw.
Harry Potter gets to go to school in a spooky gigantic castle full of ghosts, deadly beasts, and some teachers who may or may not be evil. Edward Cullen goes to a normal school in some rinky-dink small town. Despite the danger, I would prefer the former.
Robert Pattinson has appeared in both a Harry Potter film and the film ‘Twilight’, while Daniel Radcliffe hasn’t gotten to play a vampire (yet). He, however, gets to star in many more Harry Potter films, so I think he wins the “who has been and will be in more magical movies” contest.
Robert Pattinson can play guitar and piano; Daniel Radcliffe has appeared on Broadway. I’ll give Pattinson the multi-talented award, however, because Daniel’s Broadway role is just a different form of acting.
The girl that Harry Potter ends up with is a bigger surprise than who Edward Cullen wants to spend eternity with.
Both of their characters have to fight difficult urges: Harry Potter has to resist the urge to use magic in the nonmagical world, but Edward Cullen has to resist the urge to suck on necks (I’d say this urge is more difficult to control, and Edward does a better job of doing so than Harry, so he wins this round).
Daniel Radcliffe is definitely the richer of the two.
Most girls would agree that Robert Pattinson is the better-looking of the two.
So who wins in the end? Lovers of magical characters, books, and teenage heartthrobs, of course!
