And in the boneheaded casting category, we have Robert Pattinson competing against Rupert Friend and Rupert Grint for a role as Prince Harry in a movie about his life.
Rupert Friend, 28, and Harry Potter star Rupert Grint, 21, will go head-to-head with R-Pattz to portray the prince on screen.
The movie, called The Spare, will cover the highs of lows of his royal experiences, including the death of his mother Princess Diana and his time spent on the front line of the Army in Afghanistan.
With the screenplay in the works, film bosses are searching for the perfect young star. Filming is set to begin next year in both the UK and the Middle East.
I’m sorry, but in what universe would Robert Pattinson make a good Prince Harry? The only reason to cast him would be to secure the swooning female moviegoer dollar, which is probably their primary aim with this flick.
For the sake of cinematography, I hope they cast Rupert Grint. Not only is he scads more believable, but personally, I’d like to see him get a chance to stretch his acting skills and prove whether or not he’s capable of more than the rubber-faced “schmacting” they make him do in the Potter flicks.

Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson were snapped cozying up at a Kings of Leon concert in Vancouver this weekend (yes, the rest of the cast was there, too). Do these two look like a couple or do these two look like they’re too stoned to keep their heads up? Personally, I think it could go either way.
Oh, and the last picture in the gallery is of the two of them kissing. I guess … For me, no matter how long I stared at it, I really couldn’t tell. It was like those 3D posters from the ’90s that had the hidden picture in them. I could never see the hidden picture.

Jennie Garth attended a TJMaxx event in New York City and was asked about Robert Pattinson’s love life. Garth’s husband, Peter Facinelli plays Pattinson’s father in the Twilight movies, so the reporter rightly thought Jennie might have some inside info. Her reply? ”I can’t say [if it’sKristen Stewart or Nikki Reed], because that would be breaking my promise to [husband Peter Facinelli], but he is dating one of them!”
Well, well, well. I guess for all the vampire fans out there who care, which one do you think Pattinson is doing? If this is even real, and I wonder if it’s not all a publicity stunt, I’m voting Kristen Stewart based on her refusal to discuss her co-star.

It’s red carpet time! Or, I guess in this case, it’s green carpet time. Young Hollywood turned out in droves for Sunday night’s Teen Choice Awards. I don’t know who won what award because I’m not a teen, and it’s not my choice. I chose to watch football. But I do enjoy seeing who wore what to the awards show.
The green carpet was shot outside, in natural light– something for which Beet always cuts celebs a little extra slack. But not me. Because its the same light that all of us have to live every day of our lives in. So when a celeb shows up on the red carpet in natural light that reveals their haggard eye bags and pancake makeup, I feel highly vindicated. Case in point: Amanda Bynes (above). I’m not sure what kinds of bottles she’s been hitting, or how often, but I’m convinced that bottles are definitely being hit.
I’m also convinced that inside Rumer Willis’ gullet is a pelican desperately struggling to swallow a fish.
Britney Spears, on the other hand, looked fabulous. I’ve never been a big fan of her fashion choices, but her dress tonight was sexy with a touch of class.
Miley Cyrus showed up in an outfit that may have been made up of pieces from her Wal-mart line. I have nothing against Wal-mart, and definitely nothing against Miley, but I’m not so sure that was the best fashion choice for an awards show. Nothing says tacky like a darkly colored bra showing through a wife beater.
Other atendees included Robert Pattinson, looking drugged and disheveled as ever, Kristen Bell in my least favorite celeb fashion trend of the last few years (a jumpsuit), the Jonas Brothers, Fergie, Emma Roberts, Jordin Sparks, Kristen Stewart, Alexis Bledel, Ashley Tisdale, Selena Gomez, and Kat Von D.
So who had your favorite look of the evening? Worst?

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?
