'Twilight's' Peter Facinelli Named 'Worst Movie Vampire'

August 27th, 2010 8:36am EDT

Peter Facinelli "Twilight" patriarch Peter Facinelli has laughed off a leading critic's dishonor - the actor has landed at the top of Rolling Stone magazine film buff Peter Travers' Worst Movie Vampires list.
Facinelli's Carlisle Cullen in the film franchise 'beat' Eddie Murphy's monstrous performance in "Vampire in Brooklyn" and Gerard Butler's turn in "Dracula 2000" to land at the top of the dis-list.
But he refuses to feel sorry for himself. In a tweet to fans, he writes, "YES! I finally came in Number 1 in something! Thank you Mr. Travers. As Carlisle is a compassionate humanitarian, and anti-vampire in nature, being the worst Vampire was quite the compliment."
Bela Lugosi was named the Best Vampire for 1931's "Dracula" in Travers' list.
