Co-stars and rumored-couple Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart have been hopping all over Manhattan the last couple days wrapping up their press tour for New Moon. The pair has consistently tip-toed around the question on the tip of every interviewer’s tongue; whether their steamy onscreen relationship has seeped into their personal lives. Despite leaving Twi-hards with nothing but paparazzi shots of hand-holding and OK! magazine covers to debate, their interviews have proven them to be very likable and amazingly unaffected by their phenomenal fame.
On the “Today Show” this morning, RPattz confirmed every tabloid rumor ever, telling Matt Lauer that in the last year, he’s been engaged, dated constantly, overdosed on drugs, and dated someone named “Listten Hewert.” Before and after the interview, he graciously signed autographs and took photos with the crazed fans that had occupied Rockefeller Center for over 24 hours. See clip above.
After the jump, see Kristen Stewart spill the beans to Jimmy Fallon about Martha Stewart‘s crush on Pattinson and toss a football around. We’ve also rounded up Rob’s appearance on Letterman last night, as well as Kristen on the “Today Show” yesterday.
In the midst of New Moon madness, a trailer has debuted of a more critic-friendly, less-squeal-inducing venture for Kristen Stewart. In Yellow Handkerchief, Stewart takes an unplanned road trip through rural Louisiana with two strangers, William Hurt as an ex-convict and Eddie Redmayne as the awkward driver. The lonely threesome learns to trust each other and share their personal stories. The film has been received well at independent film festivals, and will surely appeal to those who avoid the Twilight phenomenon. We’re getting a feeling that Adventureland is the closest KStew will ever come to a romantic comedy…and that’s pretty refreshing.
Yellow Handkerchief hits select theaters in February 2010.
RPattz fans suffered a false alarm on Twitter last night, thanks to a fake People cover announcing Robert Pattinson as 2009’s Sexiest Man Alive (come on, people, what kind of headline is “Fergie: Talking Back”?). The “news” appeared on quite a few blogs today, despite a warning tweet from the magazine this morning. People will reveal the real cover tomorrow, and we pity any fool that gets the nod instead of Pattison. Considering the Twilight star is a little young for the mag’s tastes, we’d suggest more mature hunks like Jon Hamm, Gerard Butler and Mark Wahlberg stay clear of graveyards and teenagers this week.

Okay, okay, Twi-hards, no need to get your Edward Cullen undies in a bunch! Taylor Lautner and Kristen Stewart merely posed for the paps at the premiere of New Moon in Los Angeles last night, while Robert Pattinson avoided perpetuating the Robsten gossip by flying solo down the red carpet. His shocked expression can probably be attributed to the hordes of crazed fans begging him to bite their neck. The entire New Moon cast showed up for the American premiere, including Dakota Fanning, Nikki Reed, Ashley Greene, and Anna Kendrick. Unsurprising Twilight fanatics like Emma Roberts and Jennifer Love Hewitt accompanied the cast on the carpet, as did closeted Twi-hard 50 Cent, proving no one is immune to the vampire craze.
The fashion was “dazzling,” with many of the ladies donning sequins, jewels, and sparkles. The guys went for a Mad Men-esque look with slim-fitting suits and skinny ties.
Missing from the red carpet was Rachelle Leferve, who tweeted “being fired from Eclipse tonight was just 2 emotional 4 me & I couldn’t manage it. So sorry.” Bryce Dallas Howard was cast to replace Leferve as “Victoria” in The Twilight Saga: Eclipse. [Photos: Getty Images]
We’ve stared at our share of Kristen Stewart photos, and trust us – the Twilight star has serious style. While she keeps it super casual during her down time, she favors towering heels, super-short hem lines, and edgy mini-dresses while strolling the red carpet. Kristen may have declared herself “skinny fat,” but you wouldn’t know it from her stick-thin legs, which she flaunts with fervor. Low-key hair, smokey eyes and minimal jewelery complete K-Stew’s signature look. Not many stars can manage looking both beautiful and bad-ass (hello, bullet skirt!), but this girl’s got it down.
We’ve picked the best of the actress’ looks – ranging from the 2008 and 2009 VMAs to her recent European press tour promoting New Moon – for our gallery below. Is it any wonder that she caught Robert Pattinson‘s eye? [Photos: GettyImages]
Kristen Stewart, is that really you? The Twilight star looked unusually frisky at a fan party last night in Madrid (the cast’s second photo call that day), showing up in a slip of a dress complete with see-through skirt panels. You’re an adult now, Kristen—you shouldn’t be showing Taylor Lautner your underwear! One has to wonder what’s bringing out clumsy Kristen’s stylish wild side…someone want to ask Rob Pattinson?

Well, it’s kinda official: Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart are indeed a couple! Twilight director Catherine Hardwicke has definitely-maybe confirmed their relationship in an interview with Time magazine. She says: “After I cast him, I told Rob, ‘Don’t even think about having a romance with her. She’s under 18. You will be arrested.'”
When pressed about the status of their alleged love affair, Hardwick adds, “I didn’t have a camera in the hotel room. I cannot say. But in terms of what Kristen told me directly, it didn’t happen on the first movie. Nothing crossed the line while on the first film. I think it took a long time for Kristen to realize, ‘O.K., I’ve got to give this a go and really try to be with this person.'”
Um, so…there you have it. Kristen straight-up told her that she and Rob are getting that bed head from bedding each other, and hey – they held hands in public! What other proof do we need? Well, okay – a kiss would be nice. [Photo: GettyImages]
Who ever said Twilight was only for Robert Pattinson-obsessed fangirls? The lovely Ashley Greene is this month’s Maxim cover girl, and the sultry star manages to bring a whole lot of sex appeal to her relatively tame photo shoot. Not that we need string bikinis to admire beauty, but it is Maxim. You can check out more pics here, and flip through our giant Ashley Greene photo gallery below.
Taylor Lautner can’t turn 18 fast enough for some ladies. The Twilight star recently revealed he’s been the target of some wholly inappropriate behavior from mature fans. “I’ve had women in their 40s come up to me and ask if I can sign their underwear! The weirdest thing is that their daughters are with them…The moms are crazier than the daughters, going: ‘Taylor, I’m wearing your Team Taylor panties, can you sign ‘em?’ And the daughter’s in the background, going: ‘Urrghh, Mom!'”
Is it even legal to ask an underage guy to sign your underwear? Sounds pretty grey area to us. Better you appreciate the New Moon studboy from a respectful distance by soaking in the gallery below.

The Twilight photos keep pouring in from Europe. New Moon stars Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, and Taylor Lautner have been to Paris, London, and now Madrid for three consecutive premieres, and the jet-setting appears to be wearing on Robsten‘s red carpet composure. While the cast consistently looks fab (check out Stewart’s bangin’ pumps), it seems Pattinson caught a case of the chuckles in Spain. Pattinson’s giggly face is a welcome alternative to Edward Cullen’s often stoic, albeit handsome, facial expression. [Photos: Getty Images, Splash News Online]
