Twilight's Xavier Samuel Crushes On January Jones

Xavier Samuel, an Australia native who’s joining the Twilight cast in Eclipse, drops by Teen Vogue to chat.

The 25-year-old actor, who’ll play Riley, talked about the film, his favorite directors and actors who he crushes on.

On how filming went: “Playing Riley was cool – I get to boss around a bunch of newborn vampires. I had a really good time hanging out with everyone in Vancouver. I play the guitar, so [Jackson Rathbone] and I had a few jams together – [Robert Pattinson] plays as well, he’s really good.”

On his favorite actors and directors: “I’d really like to work with the Coen Brothers, as well as Wes Anderson and Paul Thomas Anderson. For actors, I’d say Mark Ruffalo, Billy Crudup, and Philip Seymour Hoffman.”

On which celebs he crushes on: “I’d have to say January Jones from Mad Men, Natalie Portman, and the girl who plays the obsessive fan Mel on Flight of the Conchords.”

LOL Mel on Flight of the Conchords

haha Good luck on working with any of those directors. They dont want to be associated with Twilight whatsoever especially if thats the only thing on your resume. Better do some independent movies to let the real directors see if you have any talent.

He has already done 4 independent movies, his latest “the loved one” has created a lot of buzz at Cannes, he’s a very good actor.
