Twilight's Dr. Cullen Charms Fans at AZ State Fair
Yes, Twerds, Twerps, Twilighters (or whatever moniker Twilight fans are going by these days), Dr. Carlisle Cullen paid a visit to the Arizona State Fair this past Sunday. Or rather, actor Peter Facinelli, who plays the leader of the Cullen clan in the movie series based on the popular YA novels.

After an hour of signing autographs and chatting with fans, Facinelli was starting break a sweat -- literally. But he was more concerned about his fans, offering to speed things up so they could get out of the blazing sun and onto the rides. "I don't want anyone to get heat stroke; although I am a doctor, kind of," he quipped. "If you faint, I can maybe help you out. But you're not gonna get mouth-to-mouth."

Though Facinelli clearly had his hands full with all of the adoring fans, we were able to catch up with him for a few minutes of 1-on-1 time. (That is not as naughty as it sounds.)

What kind of gifts does he get from fans? "Stuffed animals. Lots of stuffed animals. And people like to make me scarves. Carlisle wears a lot of scarves. It's really sweet."
"People always ask me if my arm gets tired. But it doesn't -- just my brain goes to mush!" Unfortunately, Twifans.com didn't have a cutout of Dr. Cullen on site.
Fans line up to meet and greet with Facinelli.
Actors like Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie have been teased for refusing to watch their own movies. But Facinelli feels watching his performances is worthwhile, if just to see how everything comes together. "At the end of the day, you're a piece to this big puzzle," he says. "I like to see how the puzzle comes out."
