'Twilight' star has bloodline to Dracula (Roots connect Robert Pattinson to Transylvania)

Bloody marvelous!

"Twilight" star Robert Pattinson was literally born for his famed vampire role, according to genealogical researchers who traced his bloodlines to the real-life Dracula.

Pattinson's English roots connect him to famed Transylvania bloodsucker and 15th century ruler Vlad the Impaler, the researchers said.

But at least the face and voice of Robert Cullen is in good company, sharing bloodlines with Princes William and Harry.

Pattinson is a direct seventh-generation descendant of the Pickering family of York, England, according to Ancestry.com.

That line gave birth to England's late, beloved Queen Mother.

Her hubby, King George VI, was 16 generations removed from Vlad II Dracula -- father to the gruesome ruler Vlad the Impaler, or Dracula. That bloodthirsty tyrant inspired Bram Stoker's novel "Dracula."

“Twilight” is a sissified version of Dracula, for adolescent girls.

The fearsome Count has been turned into a nerd.

I like the joke about the woman holding aloft a cross and facing a Jewish vampire, who says, "It won't do you a bit of good, honeybunch."

Pushing a pickup away doesn't count. The wampire must pick up the pickup.

Superman would.

He’s a cutie. But it cracks me up that these girls are all in love with the brooding Edward Cullen. If they listened to his commentary on the Twilight DVD, they’d know he’s just a flaky little goofball who spent a lot of time saying “Dang, look how dark they made my eyebrows!!” His real personality seems to be more the Bill & Ted type.
