But Twilighters Anonymous is reporting that Star magazine has revealed that Timberlake and Efron are a bit annoyed that Pattinson, a relative screen newcomer, has been offered a leading role.

However, Pattinson was in a Harry Potter film (even if his character did get killed) and stars in the upcoming "Little Ashes," playing eccentric, sexually ambiguous and controversial artist Salvador Dali.

So there.
