My favorite Irish redhead Kathy Griffin says she's desperate to hook up with Twilight star Robert Pattinson.

Kathy reckons she has to do it soon because she says Pattinson, who plays vampire Edward Cullen in the cult series, mightn't live too long.

Griffin was speaking on the red carpet at the Emmys when a reporter asked her who she preferred; Robert Pattinson or Taylor Lautner.

She said she would choose Pattinson any day over co-star Taylor Lautner (who?!).

And she said she needed to get to him soon because "he looks like he has about three weeks to live."

"He looks like he's about to die anyway so I've got to grab him and f*** him while I can," she said.
