Peter Facinelli Loves Twilight Testosterone

Saturday, June 26, 2010

Peter FacinelliPETER Facinelli loves the “testosterone” of The Twilight Saga: Eclipse.

The 36-year-old actor — who plays vampire patriarch Carlisle Cullen in the movie series — admits the latest installment of the franchise is his favorite because it is so action-packed.

“With Eclipse, there’s even more action, so for me, as a male, it’s my favorite because I like the testosterone of all the action, yet you still have this love triangle that’s heated up even more,” he said.

“It hits on a lot of different themes, like vengeance and the alliances formed between two families.”

Juggling his filming commitments with raising three daughters — Luca, 12, Lola, seven, and three-year-old Fiona — means Peter and his wife Jennie Garth don’t get to spend much time together, meaning even a trip to the supermarket with the 90210 star can feels like a date.

“Sometimes we’re in a store and I’ll lose Jennie for a second,” he said. “Then I’ll see her out of the corner of my eye, and she’s just the most beautiful woman. And I say to myself: ‘Oh, that’s my wife, I’m so lucky.’

“Those moments just hit me — and they hit me often.”
