London, (ANI): Twilight stars Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart
are saving thousands of lives from cancer – by maintaining their
pale complexions, says experts. The hunk shot to fame as vampire
Edward Cullen in Twilight, while his co-star and girlfriend Stewart
is equally as pale-skinned in the movie franchise.
And the couple has been credited with giving youngsters the
confidence to step out without a tan - which will ultimately help
reduce cancer rates. "People have to want to resemble the
individual giving the message. If that image comes in vogue then
people will follow suit and ultimately that could be better for
people's skin," the Daily Star quoted Dr. Raj Mallipeddi as saying.
Eric Jimenz from Urban Decay Cosmetics added: "Due to films such as
Twilight, people see that pale skin can still be sophisticated,
timeless and glamorous."
