Alex Meraz Isn't Worried About Being Becoming a Sex Symbol

E!Online has a new interview with Alex Meraz, our new favorite New Moon DILF, where he reveals he's already encountered TwiLoonies, among other things:

"Someone started yelling at me because they didn't like my character," Meraz told us last night at a Carrera Vintage Sunglasses party at the Chateau Marmont hotel.

"I play a bad boy, so she got mad at me," he added. "She said, 'I hate you, Paul!' That was the craziest thing for me—being confused for a character."

Meraz's response to the hater?...

"I yelled back at her, 'I love you, too!'" he said.

Not only good-looking, but he's charming, too, and already one of the gang on the set! Uh-oh, is Meraz about to give Rob Pattinson a run for his money in the sex symbol department?

"Rob's just kind of soaking it up for everyone," Meraz said. "I'm happy to have just a smidgen of what he's got...I'm not worried about being a sex symbol."

It sounds like Meraz will be around for awhile. He kind of revealed that he may already be signed on to reprise his role in the third Twilight flick. "The next movie we're doing is Eclipse, so I'll wait to read the book a couple weeks before we start doing it, so I can really focus on it," Meraz said. "I don't want to spread myself too thin."

Alex also dished on some of the behind the scenes wolfpack bonding:

Meraz, who plays a volatile member of the wolf pack named Paul, tells us he and fellow furry friend Taylor Lautner often pass the time between shooting doing martial arts, including karate and backflips.

"The wolf pack is like brothers," squealed Meraz, eagerly.

The crew is currently shooting in Vancouver, and Meraz says it is going "great." He adds that the sequel, in his humble estimation, will definitely be superior to the original.

"It gets bigger, better and more exciting," gushed Meraz.

*Squee*

  1. Or rather his wife has a tight leash on his symbol status. LOL!

    I cant believe someone would shout that in his face. I think the last thing I would do if I saw a Twilight celebrity would be to shout at them. Id probablly freeze and squeek like a moron.

    On another note, I was hoping they would incorperate some of Taylor and Alex's martial arts into their fight. THAT would be soooo cool!
