Kelly Clarkson is a known Twilight fan (the singer wrote on her personal blog about reading – and loving – the books last winter), but the VH1 Diva took her love to a new level while performing at a recent concert. A fan apparently gave the singer a life-size, cardboard cut-out of the series’ resident vamp-hunk, Edward Cullen (played by Robert Pattinson, natch). Kelly serenaded the Cullen cut-out with the song, “I Want You,” and gushed to the crowd, “he’s so cute!”
Ashley Greene is a Twilight star and recent winner of the Fresh Face Female Award at the Teen Choice Awards, but it’s not her face we’re looking at today. Nude photos (link is very NSFW!) of Greene (who also locked lips with Chace Crawfordyesterday) have leaked on the internet and Greene and her reps are admitting that, yep, they are definitely legit. Greene’s lawyers stated, “The photos in question, which appear to be of our client, are illegal and are being unlawfully displayed. Our client intends to take legal action.”
We’re all for this very Euro style of living where today’s woman is free and confident with her body and whatnot, but a) Why does every young female star have nude photos these days? And b) Do these starlets not know how to password protect their computers so that these iPhoto mishaps don’t occur?
Greene’s people told Perez Hilton that, “Ms. Greene is the owner of the copyrights in these photos, and as copyright owner, Ms. Greene owns the exclusive rights, among others, to reproduce, distribute, and to display the photos.” Someone should also school Ash in the uses of the internet, #1 being distribution of boobie shots, illegal or otherwise.

Oh to be young, fit and fabulous. Hollywood’s hottest underage stars (and a few who are older than 21, too) were out in full force last night for the Teen Choice Awards. Everyone from the Jonas Brothers, to the Kardashian sisters, to the Twilight and Gossip Girl casts strutted their stuff on the red carpet. The show airs tonight on Fox, but you can catch all our fashion faves in the gallery below.
Cast members of the uber-popular Twilight movie series have begun arriving in Vancouver to start rehearsals for the third flick of the franchise, Eclipse. Fan favorites including Ashley Greene, Kellan Lutz, and Nikki Reed (who has moved on from Rob Pattinson to Paris Hilton dumpee, Paris Latsis) were joined at the airport by cast newbies Xavier Samuel and Bryce Dallas Howard. For a group of hot twenty-somethings with millions of obsessed fans at their fingertips, the crew appeared sullen and low-key as they sulked around the baggage claim. Ashley even made a poor attempt to hide behind her iPhone. Could they be overwhelmed by the recent re-casting drama plaguing the flick?
Noticeably absent from the group were the movie’s mega-stars, Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner and Kristen Stewart. Tay-Tay’s been busy shooting the rom-com Valentine’s Day, while one RPattz-obsessed Twitter claims the British actor will finish shooting Remember Me in NYC on Friday and then supposedly head to L.A. before landing in “The Couve” sometime next week. Think he and KStew are heading off on a romantic getaway before jetting to Canada for work? [Photo: Splash News Online]
Shooting hasn’t even begun on the third Twilight Saga flick (Eclipse), but drama is already plaguing the film. Just days after the cast got cozy in front of fans at Comic-Con, Summit Entertainment has dropping actress Rachelle LeFevre (pictured, left) and replaced her with Bryce Dallas Howard (right). LeFevre, who portrayed the vampire Victoria in the first two flicks, is a fan favorite, and is known for her friendly demeanor and her breast cancer fund-raising on Twitter. In a statement released last night, she said she was “stunned” and “saddened” by Summit’s decision, adding, ” I am hurt deeply by Summit’s surprising decision to move on without me.”
Summit responded by accusing LeFevre, who had also accepted a part in the movie Barney’s Version, of creating unresolvable scheduling conflicts. “Ms. Lefevre took a role in the other film that places her in Europe during the required rehearsal time, and at least 10 days of The Twilight Saga: Eclipse’s principal photography. This period is essential for both rehearsal time with the cast, and for filming at key locations that are only available during the initial part of production,” Summit said in a statement. “The fact remains that Ms. Lefevre’s commitment to the other project—which she chose to withhold from Summit until the last possible moment—makes her unfortunately unavailable to perform the role of Victoria in [Eclipse].”
Fans of the uber-popular series are freaking out across the web, and an online petition has been started in support of LeFevre reclaiming the role. But E! Online reports that Summit insiders – who allegedly wanted to drop LeFevre due to her gigantic salary for Eclipse – don’t care what the Twi-hards have to say. When asked if their protest would have any effect on their decision, one Summit source replied, “I don’t think so.” Ouch. Hurts almost as much as a vampire bite. [Photos: GettyImages]
Behold, Twihards – it’s the first pic of rumored couple Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewartreunited for the first time since May! The pair – along with third wheel Taylor Lautner – appeared together in a panel at Comic-Con in San Diego today to discuss New Moon, the upcoming installment of the Twilight series.
We’re following the action on Twitter, where fans, bloggers and journalists are furiously typing in updates and posting pics of New Moon mania. People magazine devoted their cover story this week to Rob’s deep and desperate love for the aloof Kristen, but we don’t see much chemistry in this pic or the video below (all we see are a bunch of bedraggled, possibly hungover hipsters). Do you think there’s a spark? [Photo: WireImage]
It’s been a while since we’ve thought about Paris Latsis, known for his inherited billions and for banging Paris Hilton. But now the heiress’ ex has reportedly moved on to a new leading lady, Twilight actress Nikki Reed. Apparently rumors have been swirling about the unlikely pair for a while, and anonymous friends confirmed the love match to E! Online. “They met about six months ago and have been together since,” said a pal. “The reason she traveled over to Greece was to be with [Paris].”
Nikki – who supposedly got sexy with Robert Pattinson while shooting Twilight – apparently bailed on hanging with her co-stars in Italy this spring to schmooze with Latsis and his Greek family. “Both families have met, and really like each other,” revealed another pal. “That’s how serious it’s getting between [Nikki and Paris]. Robert Pattinson is nowhere on the radar. She’s upgraded, in her mind.”
Going from snogging a sexy slob to a Greek shipping heir? Yeah, that’s what we’d call an upgrade. If only he didn’t come with the shame of sleeping with Hilton. That’s some pretty skanky baggage to bring to a relationship. [Photos: GettyImages]
RPattz says, “I read the script of Twilight and I barely knew that they were books too so I had no idea what I was letting myself in for. The only reason I went to the audition was to see Kristen because I had just seen Into the Wild. Of course I had a little crush on her.”
While we’d love to believe him, we can’t help but wonder if the brooding boy wonder is pulling our leg. After all, he knows this is exactly what we want to hear, right? The rumored couple is set to reunite this week at Comic Con – perhaps their body language will reveal something! [Photo: GettyImages]
You would think most girls who get to co-star withRobert Pattinson would jump on that opportunity to get close to the Twilight hottie, but Emma Watson says sparks never flew when the two worked together on Harry Potter.
“He’s just a good friend,” Emma said. “He’s a super nice guy, and girls love him. We’re just friends – but he sure was great to work with.”
Girls do love him, but Emma’s “just friends” comment makes it just one less. [Source: NYDN; Photo: Getty Images]
