In the new film Welcome to the Rileys,Kristen Stewarthas a gritty role as a stripper. She’s obviously been trying to make films that distance herself from the Twilight set but Stewart does consider about how her fans will react to such a hardcore change of character.
In the new film, Stewart plays a prostitute who gives James Gandolfini a lap dance and offers her services to him (we feel dirty just typing that). It’s not quite the pure Bella we’re used to, and Stewart knows it. Knowing that her Twilight fans will never see any T&A in those films, though, Stewart says this is their chance to get a good look. “It’s an independent movie that nobody would normally see and now it’s like, ‘Oh, let’s go see Bella in this stripper movie; it’ll be crazy!” She also explains, “I play a very broken young girl who is a runaway. She’s a street kid. She’s working in a strip club and James Gandolfini’s character is just as dead inside as she is.”
Well, at least she’s consistent with the dead-inside (or undead, as it were) love interests. [Photo: GettyImages]
With so many tweens and Twi-hards swooning for Robert Pattinson, you’d think he would be rotating bedfellows hourly, but that’s just not so, he claims. Nor does he have a steady girlfriend, despite the rumors that he and Kristen Stewart have an off-screen romance.
RPattz apparently told The Mirror, “I don’t have a girlfriend. I don’t know why. You always think you’re going to get more girls after you’ve made a movie and it never happens. You sit there and you’re like ‘I’m a big movie star and I want to go out with some models’ but I don’t know why that doesn’t happen.” Pattinson is hot an all, but maybe his expectations are too high?
He does joke though about his appeal to women young and old, saying, “Most of the girls are all pretty young so it’s just kind of funny. But then you get the Twilight Mums who love you like mums! And you can take that too far. I mean, it could be ‘Edward breaks up Twilight family.’” Funny. And also a little bit creepy. [Photo: GettyImages]
Attention Twi-hards! Summit has released the “Meet Jacob Black” New Moon trailer, wherein he summarizes the sequel to Twilight from his perspective. While bootleg versions have been floating around the ‘net for a couple days, theFABlife is bringing you some hi-def goodness. Enjoy.

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]
