26 Ways ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ Is Actually ‘Twilight,’ Minus the Vampires

twilight-fifty-copy

We all know E.L. JamesFifty Shades of Grey is Twilight fan fiction. But until you see both films, you may not realized how similar they are. The two romantic dramas are legitimately the same story, it was just a matter of adding a Red Room and subtracting a vampire.

If you’re too lazy to buy into the hype and spend time watching these films, here’s all you need to know. (And if you love both Fifty Shades and Twilight, this is about to be the best thing of your life.)

1. Female lead names.
Ana is short for Anastasia and Bella for Isabella. Each has the same amount of syllables.

2. Both take place in rainy and gray Washington towns — Seattle (Fifty Shades) and Forks (Twilight), respectively.

Which just adds to the sexual tension and dark ambiance of it all.

3. Ana and Bella are twins.

ana-bella

Mousey, totally average white girls who are awkward and fall a lot. They’re also loners who don’t enjoy group activities. Seriously, they’re “not [their] thing.”

4. As are the male leads, Christian and Edward.

christian-edward

Brooding, intense, mysteriously, and sexy brunettes who fall for these boring girls (yet no one knows why).

5. He can’t “read her.”

In the initial Fifty Shades interview scene, Christan “wants to know more about [Ana]” even though she’s the one interviewing him. Edward has the ability to read minds, but is frustrated when he can’t read Bella’s. In turn, both characters grill their female counterparts with questions about their families, yet give nothing about their personal lives in exchange.

christian-confused

edward-confused

So. Confused.

6. He feels a crazy need to protect her, especially since she’s prone to accidents.
Exhibit A: Ana almost just got ran over.

ana fall

Exhibit B: So did Bella.

“Could you at least watch where you walk,” guys?

7. Suddenly, he tells her she shouldn’t be with him.
Christian tells Ana: “I’m not the guy for you, I have to let you go.”

ana leaves

Edward tells Bella: “If you were smart, you’d stay away from me.”

8. Then, he decides he can’t leave her alone. Just can’t.
Christian: “I’m incapable of leaving you alone.”

christian-cant-leave-ana

Edward: “I don’t have the strength to stay away from you anymore.”

edward-cant-laeve-bella

To which Ana and Bella both originally reply: “Then don’t.”

9. The ethnically ambiguous friend (José in Fifty Shades, Jacob in Twilight) threatens the central relationship.

christian pushes

ed pushes jake

Why they’re all fighting over her, we’ll never know.

10. Stalker behavior sets in, especially with other men.
Christian won’t stop eying José during his photo shoot and swears he’s romantically connected to Ana.

christian-jose

Edward follows Bella to another town and wards of a group of creepy drunk men.

11. The men ask if the women have their trust.
Then, Christian binds Ana’s hands with his tie and Edward takes Bella tree-hopping.

ana-tie-yes

12. The woman’s mom lives far away — in a hot climate, with boyfriend of the month.
Their phone calls include mom asking if they’ve “met someone” because they’re as giddy as a middle school girl.

13. Of course, they both have a beloved dad or step-dad.

charlie

You don’t fuck with Charlie.

14. The trip to see mom.
Ana’s mom realizes how intense Christian is because he shows up in Georgia, at the same bar, unexpected.

fifty-trip

Bella’s mom realizes Edward’s passion for Bella because he can’t stop starring at her. Literally hasn’t blinked for hours straight.

bella-mom

15. Male lead plays piano intensely.

They know their way with their hands. This also adds to their brooding demeanor from No. 4.

16. He watches her when she sleeps.

wtach in bed 50

ed-watch-bella-sleep

Not creepy in the slightest.

17. She meets his big family at an awkward dinner.

Don’t let Rita Ora‘s cameo as Christian’s sister with two whole lines fool you.

50-dinner

Edward’s family is way cooler, obviously. Except for Rosalie who’s a total psycho.

twilight-dinner

18. Male leads wants to bite her.

ana bite lip

Lip or neck, what’s the difference?

19. Female takes part in extensive research.
Ana has to look into dominant and submissive behavior, while Bella looks up history of vampires.

ana-research

bella-research

Bella obviously got the short end of the stick here.

20. He shows up in her room randomly.
Doorbells or knocking don’t exist in these worlds, but at least Christian is prepared with the wine.

christian-show-up

edward-watch-bella

21. Her place is totally average and old while his is contemporary and fucking immaculate.

Christan’s pad:

The Cullen house:

cullen-house
But what did you really expect?

22. The “Welcome to my world” line.

Which Christian delivers after spanking Ana and Edward to Bella during their tree-hopping adventures.

christian-welcome

ed-welcome-line

23. The male lead has a troubled past.
Being that hot doesn’t come easy. Christian was actually abused as a child and Edward’s vampire/no soul struggles are killing him.

christian-past

edward bite

24. Female sacrifices everything to be with him, and he “changes” her.

ana change

ed-bite-bella
Because she’ll never be this loved by someone so hot.

25. They’ve all waited.
“You don’t know how long I’ve waited for you.”- Edward to Bella

“Where have you been?”- Christian “Waiting.”- Ana

26. Oh, and the mind-blowing sex.

The Oscars confused the hell out of everyone last Sunday when they announced that Lonnie Lynn and John Stephens won the award for Best Original Song. It turns out, those are the IRL names of “Glory” writers and performers, Common and John Legend. But pop stars aren’t the only ones who use stage names.

Here are the real names of 50 other celebrities, from actors to TV personalities. While some simply shorten their birth names, others take on a whole new identity entirely.

Check out what we learned at the Oscars, in addition to the real names of Common and John Legend.

Mariska Hargitay’s Day At Disneyland

Law and Order: Special Victims Unit star Mariska Hargitay had a fun day at Disneyland with her son Andrew, 3, and daughter Amaya, 3.

“#Hangin’withMater #”shooooot” @Disneyland,” the actress, 51, captioned the sweet shot via Instagram Saturday.

Also joined by 8-year-old son August, the mom-of-three had a blast at the happiest place on earth.

“Sometimes in life, you just have to #TakeThePlunge. #JumpJumpJumpAround #JumpUpJumpUpAndGetDown,” she captioned the fun photo with her son and some friends.

Mariska – who is the daughter of former Mr. Universe Mickey Hargitay and legendary actress Jayne Mansfield – married the kids’ father, fellow actor Peter Hermann, in August 2004.

Inspired by her role in SVU, Mariska founded the Joyful Heart Foundation in 2004, which aims to heal, educate and empower victims of sexual assault, domestic violence and child abuse.

The actress has opened up about the No More campaign.

“Society continues to misplace shame and blame on survivors,” Mariska shared with HerScoop. “That has to end.”

“What we saw during the filming, brave and strong and authentic person after person, was people standing up for each other, for the people they love, for their partners, wives, husbands, children, friends, mothers and fathers, for people they’ve never met, for themselves,” she added. “I was just moved beyond words. NO MORE fills me with confidence and renewed determination.”

We asked you to tell us which celebrity mom said the quote below:

“Growing up, whenever I was bullied, my mom would say, ‘You’re a beautiful girl. They’re just jealous. It never helped. I want my girls to know that beauty is being kind…beauty is helping people…beauty is humility.”

So, how did you do? Were you able to figure out who said it? If not, the answer is….
