I dunno, I maintain that (a) he auditioned as a joke, thinking he'd never get the role of someone described as ~SO GORGEOUS~, and then got sucked into the madness and (b) the fandom really does take it too far. AFAIK he's actually pretty nice about doing pics & autographs and stuff when people act sane, but these people are scary-ass stalkers and totally cross the line of reason. So he's allowed to be wary of them without seeming too ungrateful, IMO. And I dunno about all the staged/tabloid stuff; I can't tell how much is actually fake. But I did always get the impression he genuinely loved Kristen. IDK.
