Robert Pattinson wants you to know he’s doing fine, guys. After his sexy Cosmopolis premiere pop-up, classy appearance on the Daily Show and his New York Stock Exchange bell-ringing, it was time to sit down, along with his director, David Cronenberg with Showbiz Tonight. When asked whether he was doing okay — since reports of him wallowing and boozing it up are rife — he succinctly replied, “Yeah” and laughed! The reporter even admitted he looked “absolutely fine”, to which he said, “Since the first Twilight, you enter this kind of realm where… you get stuff reported about you, and it’s weird.” Cronenberg added, “It’s a very abstract realm that doesn’t have a lot to do with personal reality” following that up with “People think they know what’s going on but they don’t know what’s really going on.” Robert continued the vein of thought, saying, “You start having a total disassociation … On top of that, loads of people just make it up anyway so it doesn’t make any difference.”
And then, when the interviewer asked one last time, if he was really okay (as in really, really okay, RPattz), same answer. “Yeah.” You heard it guys. And you can see it too, not just in the video, but in the photographs of him above, looking like some sort of ’90′s heartthrob, in a backwards cap, heading out of Soho House last night. With a very over-enthusiastic security dude, we might add. He looks just fine, like he’s had a couple of drinks even! Bonus picture after the jump, which illustrates our point! Read more…
While we’re putting this in rumor territory, the buzz around is so strong, we have a feeling it’s probably true. Kristen Stewart‘s affair with director Rupert Sanders and subsequent, alleged, break-up with Robert Pattinson has had so much fallout already, that this development could be part of the afterburn. It is being said the Snow White and the Huntsman sequel is being canned by Universal and that a new film fashioned on the Huntsman’s story is being touted. Which means it’s all about Chris Hemsworth. The gossip mill is in overdrive saying that Kristen is not going to be involved at all in the spinoff, if its given the green light. Whether Sanders is going to be involved is as yet unclear. What we do know is that screenwriter David Koepp, is being bought out of his contract. By that we mean, he’s going bye-bye. Koepp had been hired to write the Snow White sequel, and the fact that a new writer is going to be hired instead of him, is quite a strong indication that a new storyline is being discussed. A Universal rep has even said, “The studio is currently exploring options to continue the franchise.”
This story doesn’t seem to be unlikely. Snow White is where Stewart and Sanders met and obviously the space where their “affections” for each other grew. And the affair has been met with such universal censure that its natural that studios would get antsy. But is it fair? That’s a whole different argument altogether. We do agree that having Sanders and Stewart together on a project would be toxic. At the same time, we also have to take into consideration that Universal hasn’t exactly announced what they’re planning to do — and if there is going to be a sequel at all. “Exploring options” doesn’t translate into a film being made. So before anyone goes around saying Stewart’s being canned proper, we’re going to have to wait and see what sort of film Universal is going to go ahead with — if they’re going ahead at all — sequel or spinoff?

More like Watch What Happens Love! Okay, we’ll readily admit that was a horrible joke. We are just too excited for witticisms, now that we caught wind of the fact that Anderson Cooper and Andy Cohen could possibly, potentially, allegedly be dating. Based on their respective Instagram pics, Gawker deduced that the Anderson journalist and Bravo late night host are vacationing together in the romance capital of the world: Croatia. “Look who just took the same instagram pic as me @bravoandy,” Cooper tweeted earlier today, along with a shot of Cohen beaming in front of a sunset. Why not put it in sky writing, you guys? Actually, could you do that? That would make things easier for us, both legally and emotionally-speaking.
Add to this the facts that 1) photos emerged yesterday of Anderson’s boyfriend Ben Maisani making out with another dude and 2) both Cohen and Cooper have taken down the photos captured by Gawker, and all signs point to some sweet, sweet, Kathy Griffin-approved lovin’. Besides, even if they’re just friends now, who can resist the erotic power of a Croatian sunset? Literally no one. Oh man, just thinking about their celebrity wedding makes our hands go number with gleeeeeeeee.

Heads up, Hallmark, it’s Crazy Celebrity Arrest week starring Taylor Swift! But don’t worry Team T-Swizzle, it’s not in the way you think. In addition to her full schedule of buying houses and dropping singles, Taylor somehow managed to cause Crocs footwear founder George Boedecker to get a DUI…without even being in the same state! At least that’s what the shoe baron drunkenly claimed. In a tale as ridiculous as Crocs themselves, the 51 year old Boedecker was discovered passed out at the wheel of his Porsche in Boulder, Colorado. According to TheSmokingGun.com, police arrived to find him being treated by EMTs, who diagnosed Boedecker as being “drunk as crap.” It’s unclear exactly why he drank so much, but then again if we invented the ugliest shoe known to human-kind we’d probably drink to forget, too.
When questioned by police, he insisted that he was merely napping and that his “girlfriend” was driving the car. Who was this girlfriend, you ask? “A really f—ing famous [singer],” he told authorities, before coyly asking if they had ever heard of Taylor Swift. When cops asked where this non-present girlfriend was at the moment, Boedecker claimed that she had gone back to Nashville after an argument and that she was “batsh– crazy.” It seems like someone’s definitely batsh– crazy in this story, and it doesn’t seem like it’s Taylor. But the best part of the whole incident? George was reportedly wearing flip-flops, which just proves that no one likes Crocs.
Incredibly, this may not be the most insane celebrity arrest of the day. MMA fighter Jason “Mayhem” Miller was found sleeping naked on a couch in an Orange County-area church this morning. The pastor saw signs of a break-in at the Mission Viejo’s Mission Hills Church and phoned the authorizes, who discovered the first floor in complete disarray with walls spray painted and books strewn across the ground. It was mayhem, in every sense of the word.
Some might be surprised that Sylvester Stallone is making the rounds to promote his new movie, The Expendables 2, just a month after son Sage Stallone died of yet-undetermined cause. But the actor spoke on Good Morning America this morning and explained why he was back at work.
“I think it’s important to get back and start reliving your life. Otherwise, you can go into a spiral,” he said, appearing on the show with co-stars Jean-Claude Van Damme, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jason Statham and Dolph Lundgren.
It was his first interview since Sage Stallone, 36, was found dead in his apartment on July 13.
We should probably feel bad about the fact that we feared Robert Pattinson would somehow manage to avoid all questions about his personal life and only plug Cosmopolis when he appeared on The Daily Show tonight. But hallelujah! About 90 percent of the interview was personal. Or, was it?
“Obviously, uh, uh, what have you been up to?” Jon Stewart opened the interview. And as Rob complained that that the host had ruined his setup joke, Stewart proceeded to bring out two pints of Ben and Jerry’s ice cream. It was an obvious nod to the fact that Rob was going through a breakup. “We’re just two gals talking,” Stewart said.
But then, it turned out, “talking” equalled a lot of talk about the ice cream melting in front of them. Or were there subtle references to the Kristen Stewart-size elephant in the room? It’s hard to tell.
“What are we doing here? Are you all right? Is everything OK? I’m worried about you, and you’re all right,” Stewart asked, sounding a little more like a grandma than an interviewer.
“I just don’t even know how to approach this now,” Rob answered, which out of context, sounds like he’s actually referring to how to approach questions about his love life.
Hot on the heels of 50 Cent referring to her as “trash” in XXL Magazine, Kim Kardashian can start her week out right by reading about how Jeremy Renner hates her family. As part of an interview with Britain’s The Guardian, Jeremy griped that the Kardashians are “ridiculous people with zero talent who spend their lives making sure everyone knows their name,” as well as “stupid, stupid people.” Tell us how you really feel, Jeremy! Actually…please don’t. If this is what he said off the cuff, his actual opinion about the Kardashians is probably downright devastating.
Of course, the Bourne Legacy star isn’t the first celebrity to rag on Kim’s family. Jon Hamm, Jonah Hill, us: you name him or her, they’ve probably trash-talked the Kardashians at some point or another. Eventually celebs will have to come out and declare their love for the Kardashians, just so we don’t assume they harbor a secret hatred for them. Well, we’ll be the first and declare it now: a part of us deeply, deeply loves Kim’s bizarre family. The other part? Well, let’s just say it has a lot in common with our “Celebs That Actively Dislike the Kardashians” gallery:

Relationship twist! After hearing that Taylor Swift and Conor Kennedy have been sharing milkshakes, holding hands and/or enjoying picnic lunches since July, we’re kind of stunned to hear that Taylor purchased a house in Hyannis, Massachusetts last week, a house that happens to be extremely close to Conor’s memaw Ethel Kennedy‘s home. “It’s in a beautiful location and right across the street from Conor and the Kennedys,” a relator confirmed to People. “It’s a beautiful home. She got a nice home, paid fair price. The house was on the market for two to four years.” Whoa! On one hand, Taylor is a millionaire and can do whatever the fudge she wants. On the other hand, imagine walking into your grandma’s house and your girlfriend is already there, sipping sun tea and looking at your naked baby pictures. Slightly unnerving, yes?
So that got us thinking: other than the obvious (Taylor is making a play for her 18-year-old boyfriend of a month with a play that is not even in the playbacks yet), there has to be a perfectly reasonable explanation for why Taylor would drop a chunk of change for a house Conor Kennedy can see while he eats breakfast. Such as:
Didn’t this guy write a YA novel about bullying? We didn’t realize it was a How-To. Heyo! Seriously though, 50 Cent was clearly in dire need of attention this week. Yes, even more than usual! Why else would he have insulted both Kim Kardashian and Snoop Dogg in the press? “I mean … if that man feel like she’s perfect, then she’s perfect. He could mean it and you’ll end up singing the words to it because he’s Kanye,” Fiddy told XXL Magazine about Yeezy’s lady Kim, adding, “You know how it is? One man’s trash is another man’s treasure.” Ouch! That’s an intense burn, 50 Cent! We guess the man did date Chelsea Handler. Have there been any studies to determine if perfect comedic timing can be sexually transmitted?
If that wasn’t enough material for Fiddy to take to an open mic, he also riffed on Snoop Dogg‘s new Rastafarian moniker Snoop Lion. “I don’t know how his little league team’s parents will feel about his new persona,” he quipped to The Hollywood Reporter. Hmmm, seeing as how Snoop’s persona has been “notorious rap stoner” since day one, we’re not sure if that joke really makes any sense. That being said, the mental image of Snoop coaching a Little League team is complete genius. Okay, we’ll give you that one, Fiddy…and start looking forward to your inevitable Comedy Central special now.

Call us crazy, but we think we just worked out the pattern dictating Lindsay Lohan‘s life: a great thing happens, followed by a terrible thing, followed by another great thing. For example, just this year it’s been: filming Liz & Dick, fender bender, shooting The Canyons, uh…another fender bender. Since we just reported that Lilo will allegedly star in a music video from Lady Gaga’s new album, it stands to reason we would also have to report that Lohan threw a tantrum at a famous person’s birthday party. It’s just statistics at this point!
Now, we’re using the phrase “famous person” loosely as we are referring to Clint Eastwood‘s reality star daughter Francesca Eastwood, but either way sources reported that Lindsay flipped out when she spotted Francesca partying at L.A.’s Bootsy Bellows. “She was yelling ‘I’m a star, she’s a nobody, get her out of here!’” they claimed. “One poor guy came over and tried to calm [Lindsay] down and she acted aggressively. At that point the security told her to leave and it was totally embarrassing. She is acting like some bad ’80s film star, and it is hard to watch because she needs help.” Seeing as how Francesca’s party was almost certainly being filmed, we could potentially get a glimpse of Lindsay’s meltdown on TV. But that would require Lindsay signing a waiver to appear on the show, which she…wouldn’t do? Let’s check the pattern again. It’s the only way to know what to expect!
