A SUPERNATURAL love story starring a teenage couple torn between good and evil: the comparisons between new film Beautiful Creatures and the Twilight franchise were inevitable - but the movie's leading lady, Alice Englert, argues that such comments couldn't be further from the truth.
"It opened the supernatural genre up to a new audience, but this film is different," Englert told us firmly. "I haven't seen all of the Twilight films, but Beautiful Creatures has a sense of humour and wit to it - at least that's how it approaches the fantasy world. I wouldn't have been able to take it seriously otherwise. And as for the Kristen Stewart comparisons, I just don't think that's fair. I thought she was great in On The Road and Into The Wild. But she's got enough people scrutinising her without me adding my take."
