ABC tackles why Twi-moms *crush* on younger Twi-Actors...

ABCnews reports:

"Jill Etesse was hooked on the "Twilight" books the second she cracked the series opener. She ripped through the saga on paper and rented movie No. 1.

Then the madness began.

"I joined the lines of teens for 'New Moon,'" said the 38-year-old mom of two. "My husband is deathly embarrassed. Half my friends think I'm crazy."

Etesse, from Leesburg, Va., won't let her 8-year-old daughter anywhere near Team Edward OR Team Jacob, but did she take herself to "Eclipse" this summer? "Oh yeah."

Is there something, um, icky about moms lusting after the boys of "Twilight" or other morsels of ripe screen candy? Heck no, said 54-year-old Toni Downey of Limerick, Pa. We're not dead yet!

Downey's more into Matt Bomer, 32, of TV's "White Collar" at the moment, but "I've had impure thoughts about barely legal boys as well." Strictly the celebrity look-don't-touch variety, she notes.

Eighteen-year-old Taylor Lautner's six-pack? "Mind-boggling," said Downey, who has a 25-year-old daughter. "She likes Buffy as her only vamp thing, and we both thought Pattinson was hotter as a blond in Harry Potter."

Into the light they've come, publicly declaring their sometimes puzzled joy, juggling movie schedules with diaper changes, kid lunches and soccer practices. They're definitely looking forward with younger fans to the last two "Twilight" movies starting next year, and they're scooping up all sorts of reads intended for the young.

"I have no idea why it's so appealing to me," Etesse said of her "Twilight" jones. "I'm married to a tall, dark and handsome French-Irish guy, but those abs, you know. I'd trade a pair of my Jimmy C's for my husband to have those."

In June, 30-year-old mom Christina Fiedler was undaunted by a tent city of young people on her way in to a special screening of "Eclipse" at a Los Angeles theater. She's not all that much older than 24-year-old Robert Pattinson and his mid-20s Cullen kin, played by Kellan Lutz and Jackson Rathbone, but her mom status makes her feel light years their senior, especially since they're all supposed to be teens on screen."

OH PLEASE. "But those abs, you know." GROW UP. How old is this woman? I mean, my mom is like in her late forties and she loves Twilight but she looks at it from a more grown-up point of view than THAT. I you know what that looks like? That's just embarrassing. Somebody never grew up. If you're gonna like it for a good reason. Jeez. Of COURSE, Taylor is hot and Rob is hot. No duh. But it's like all these women think about. It's sickening. It's kind of low, too. What about the fact that Taylor is a sweet guy? You know, what about the fact that Rob is a beautiful man? How about that. I'm sorry, don't yell at me..but it should take a lot more than a six-pack on a guy to impress a woman.

Personally, I fell in lurv with Charlie Bewley because he brought a whole new degree of depth to the role of Demetri... while I do fan girl over his pics now and then... I do really like him as a person (I follow him on Twitter). Meh... I have always been the kind of girl that liked a man for his mind and sense of humor over looks any day.

Ummm I love the comment "We're not dead yet." Even though some of us are older, we can appreciate the actors that play the characters we love from the books. UNF for Rob/Edward...either one.
