Twilight's Unlikely Fans: Will Ferrell is Team Jim?

MTV shares how lots of unlikely Twilight fans came out of the wood-work, including Abigail Breslin, Denzel Washington's daughter Olivia, Caleb Followill (Kings of Leon), Stephenie Pratt, and Will Ferrell - sort of:

And you may have been a little confused when Will Ferrell was seen clapping enthusiastically during the now-infamous almost-kiss, but MTV News got the inside scoop: Ferrell is a closet Twilighter.

When the comedian was asked if he was a fan of the movie, he gave a true-to-form quick response. "Obviously," he said. "It's a gimme. You look at me, you're like Twiiii-liiight," Ferrell joked. And as for what "Twilight" team the "Land of the Lost" star supports? "I'm kinda Team Edward, I'm kinda Team Jim, I'm kinda Team ... Stanley."

OK, so Ferrell may not know all the movie's characters, but he did go on to profess his love for everyone's favorite brooding vampire. Ferrell confessed he tried [unsuccessfully] to meet Pattinson all night. "He [kept] going, 'Not now, not a good time.' "

One celeb that did get to meet the heartthrob backstage was Abigail Breslin. The "Little Miss Sunshine" star officially became the envy of teenage girls everywhere and even got to shake Pattinson's hand. The star reportedly jumped up and down in excitement after the encounter.
