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."
