It’s Friday, I’m feeling liberated, I’m just going to speak my mind — because I’m usually so inhibited — and tell it like it is. I do not understand the attraction, appeal or interest related to the cast of Twilight. They don’t have enough spirit to hold up their heads or their moods. That whole greasy, unwashed, flannel-donning era is so done, Played out via grunge, Seattle, 1992.
Anyway, Kristen Stewart, Taylor Lautner and Robert Pattinson did a press conference at Comic-Con in San Diego. Pattinson talks about the development of his character — he obviously takes this vampire shit really seriously — and Taylor Lautner spoke a little bit too.
Personally, I like the part at the (approximately) 2:30 minute mark when Kristen Stewart tells the press core that no question is off-limits and then again at 3:00 when a reporter asks about the possibility of a real-life romance with Robert Pattinson and she refuses to answer that question.
Kristen, I know that your current fame is a completely annoying burden that you liken to a recurring yeast infection, but enjoy it now. Once these Twilight movies are played out, you’ll be begging your agent to get you a Crest commercial.
I just had to show you this week’s People magazine cover. Discussion continues about Twilight actor Robert Pattinson’s love life while Walter Cronkite, the most trusted man in America, gets sent to the corner. What the hell is wrong with this country?
Robert Pattinson has taken a break from vampiring while he films Remember Me in New York City. According to insiders, the pantywaist is troubled by all the attention his fame garners.
“Robert is dying to get back home,” says an insider. “He’s so over everything. He’s overwhelmed by all the girls — they terrify him! He says girls grab his neck and clothing all of the time, and he’s not used to that. Fans don’t do that to him in London. Everyone there is a little cooler about the fame thing, which is what he’s used to.
He’s embarrassed by the way girls throw themselves at him. The girls here are stalking him. He stayed in two different hotels over the course of four days just to try to escape the fans who were following him. He’s afraid that if he gives a hand, they’ll take the whole arm. He’s being advised by security not to encourage the crowd, so he doesn’t even look up anymore.”
Who are these rabid women and where do they live? I can’t even draft a profile in my mind as to what type of human being would be trying to jump on the dude from Twilight. In my completely flummoxed state, I did find comfort in this comment made by the same insider: “Robert doesn’t understand why everyone is going so crazy over him.” Neither. Do. I.
This past Thursday the pale pretty-boy actor was in NYC filming for Remember Me when he was reportedly struck by a taxi cab while escaping the clutches of a gaggle of squealing female fans.
According to one onlooker, a large group of “hysterical” girls surrounded the actor when he exited a book store where he had been filming for the majority of the day. Five security guards attempted to escort Pattinson away from the “loud and upset” fans by hustling him across a rain soaked street, but neglected to look both ways before crossing.
At any rate, Pattinson appeared to be miraculously undamaged the following day as he rolled around in the sand at Rockaway Beach to shoot some scenes with Remember Me costar Emilie de Ravin (See the gallery). And justlikethat many of you now hate emile de Ravin.
The Taxi and Limousine Commission in New York City said there had been no official report of the incident, and eyewitnesses reported that it was more of a “graze” than an actual collision. Mysteriously, a large, hand-shaped dent was later found in the side of the offending taxi cab.
Before Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson can even begin their We Don’t Give a Crap tour to promote New Moon, the studio has already started hunting for the co-stars of the third flick, Eclipse.
Here’s who they’re looking for so far, according to the casting notice:
Riley “is a handsome, blond, clean-cut college boy who falls victim to Victoria,” the notice reads. He’s in his early to mid 20s and “plays an integral role in Victoria’s attempt to murder Bella Swan.”
There are two more members of the Quileute tribe and La Push wolf pack in Eclipse. Like New Moon, they are looking for Native American or First Nations actors to fill the roles.
“Seth Clearwater is a “tall, gangly-limbed boy with a huge, happy grin,” the notice reads. “Seth idolizes Jacob.”
Seth’s big sister is 19-year-old Leah Clearwater and the only female member of La Push: “She is tall and slender with beautiful skin and short cropped black hair. She would be considered gorgeous if not for the perpetual scowl she carries due to a broken heart and her anger issues.”
Meanwhile, Taylor Lautner will continue to put on mass for the third film, after having put on around 30 pounds of muscle for New Moon. “Jacob’s character is continually growing throughout the series,” Lautner said at the MTV Movie Awards Sunday night, “so I got about eight weeks off before I go back again for Eclipse and I’m going to be hitting the gym.”
As for the fourth installment of the Twilight series, Breaking Dawn? The cast — including Kristen, Robert, Ashley Greene and Peter Facinelli — have all expressed interest in sticking around for a fourth. We are NEVER going to be done with this. Kristen Stewart is going to be stumbling down red carpets and dropping awards on the floor until we’re all old and grey. Eventually, she’ll just carry the bong up on stage with her.
