Remember when all we could talk about for Breaking Dawn – Part 1 was that headboard-cracking wedding night? Much to our relief, the honeymoon isn’t over for Edward and Bella in Part 2, even though Stephenie Meyer let the vamps have their privacy in the book. Speaking to Australian radio’s Kyle and Jackie O Show, Robert Pattinson said this new sex scene was one of the most challenging to shoot in the whole series.
“It’s supposed to be about, like, the greatest vampire sex you’ve ever had,” Rob said of the “ridiculous” scene. “So a lot of it was just closeups on me and Kristen’s faces, but there was no one else there. So it’s literally like, try and give a face of ecstasy. … Guys’ faces I don’t think are really designed to do that.” We dare to disagree. Just look at this example he gave:
It’s the beginning of the end, guys. We’re having a really hard time believing this is finally here — weren’t we just standing in line at the midnight release party of Breaking Dawn? But yeah, this morning, on the other side of the world, Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart kicked off the big promotional tour for the The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 on the Eastern Hemisphere. Kristen just arrived in Tokyo’s Narita Airport, looking way better than anyone should after a trans-Pacific flight, and immediately smiled for the cameras and signed autographs for fans. Rob, meanwhile, did an unbelievably sexy photo shoot in Sydney before hitting the red carpet of a fan event. Of course, that’s where he made plenty of silly faces for his adoring public. We’re sure you can come up with better captions for them than our own, so share them with us in the comments!

In case you were wondering how Donald Trump felt about the Robsten reunion, the ever-outgoing mogul took to Twitter to make his feelings known. Trump issued a strong warning to Robert Pattinson against getting back together with former girlfriend and Twilight co-star Kristen Stewart after she was caught cheating on him with her Snow White And The Huntsman director Rupert Sanders back in July. Although he was probably just trying to be helpful, the 66-year-old dispensed the advice in his own uniquely abrasive way. Would you expect any less from The Trump?
“Robert Pattinson should not take back Kristen Stewart,” he tweeted last night, after reports circulated that Rob and Kristen were seen back together in LA. “She cheated on him like a dog & will do it again — just watch. He can do much better!” So we guess he’s Team Edward? Predictably, Trump faced a pretty epic twitter backlash from Robsten loving Twi-Hards, but still he remained defiant. Having zillions of dollars can do that to you, we guess. “Lots of response to my Pattinson/Kristen Stewart reunion,” he wrote in a follow up tweet. “She will cheat again–100 certain–am I ever wrong?” To answer that question, we’d like to present you with this picture of Trump’s hair. If that’s not wrong, we don’t know what is.
Kristen Stewart has a lot to be on edge about these days. It can’t be easy to go headlong into the pit of Twi-Hards alongside her boyfriend Robert Pattinson after her infamous affair with Snow White And The Huntsman director Rupert Sanders over the summer. But that’s no reason to get so down, K-Stew! Never one to be a Miss Rosy Sunshine even on the best of occasions, the 22-year-old actress took a particularly harsh view of herself in an upcoming interview with Marie Claire UK.
“I’m a miserable c—!” she said in the magazine’s November 2012 issue while speaking to Balenciaga’s creative director Nicolas Ghesquiere. “I’m not sure if I’m most happy when I’m comfortable and content or when I’m pushing myself to the limits. There are such different versions of happy. And I really appreciate both.” We guess it’s that discontent and desire to go further that makes her such an awesome actress. She even admits that she’d be lost without acting in her life. “I’d probably go back to school, read a lot and figure out what I should do,” she says if she had to quit the entertainment industry.
Although we love her trademark glare, Kristen can light up a red carpet by flashing her million-watt megastar smile. The “miserable” girl definitely doesn’t scowl all the time! Head down to the gallery below to see our 25 favorite pix of K-Stew grinning. Enjoy!

We’ve heard about staying together for the kids, but staying together for the parents just sounds weird. But that’s what’s happening with Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart, at least if these reports in RadarOnline are to be believed. According to this story, Kristen’s mother Jules Stewart was even more bummed than the rest of us Twihards when it was revealed that her daughter had an affair with her Snow White And The Huntsman director Rupert Sanders. “It ripped her heart in two when she saw those pictures of Kristen in a compromising situation with Rupert,” an inside source claims. “And she couldn’t believe what her daughter had done.”
The fling spelled the end of Robsten for a time, but the two are rumored to be drifting closer, even going so far as moving back in together. According to the insider, Mrs. Stewart has strongly supported her daughter’s attempts at reconciliation, and is even having words with Rob one-on-one. She apparently had a very close relationship with Rob, and thinks of him like a son. “She has been speaking with Robert, reiterating Kristen’s pleas for another chance and is trying to help build up trust between the pair. It is early days, but if this reconciliation can bring Robert and Kristen back together, they’ll have Jules to thank.” The friend goes on to describe K-Stew’s mom as the “glue” that’s keeping them together. We’ve heard about hands on parenting, but this seems a tad bit extreme.
I was excited to write up my reactions to the just released Breaking Dawn Part 2 soundtrack listing, because I truly love the previous soundtracks from the franchise and think Music Supervisor Alex Patsavas always does a killer job cultivating tracks that suit each film’s mood. However, I know that my deep entrenchment in the Twilight fandom might make my opinion a little biased. Yes, I drink out of a giant Twilight cup and can identify every pair of Kristen Stewart‘s sneakers out of a shoe lineup, so my thoughts are certainly tainted by years of Twi-obsession. So take these silly, quick comments with a couple grains of salt, okay? They’re my unedited, unresearched, immediate reactions. Besides, we all know this soundtrack could be made up solely of songs by The Wiggles and I’d still love it.
1. Where I Come From — Passion Pit
- I thought their last album was a dud, but I like these guys and imagine this song will be fun for a shot of a lighthearted giggle shared between Edward and Bella or a wide-shot of the Volvo cruising along those curvaceous roads that apparently curl through Forks like a cement river.
2. Bittersweet — Ellie Goulding
- Her voice is wonderful and haunting, but I’m a bit less enthused knowing it’s produced by her boyfriend, Skrillex. I expect some serious “womp, womp, wub, dub” happening in the middle, and can really only imagine a ridiculous wolf pack transformation taking place over dubstep. Just feels so jort-y, ya know?
After a six-part rollout on all the official Twilight Facebook pages, Summit released the final theatrical one-sheet poster for Breaking Dawn – Part 2 this morning, and man, does it get our blood pumping. Sure, we liked all the intimate family scenes and gathering of special vamps from far and wide that the previous still gave us. But this one, like the sneak peek of the movie we saw during the VMAs, is all about the action. We always kind of dug the way the second half of Stephenie Meyer’s book turns into a sort of X-Men battle, in which it’s all about whose superpowers are superior — even though we know the victory will ultimately belong to those whose motivations are pure and right, rather than petty and vindictive. OK, that sounds cheesy when we say it that way, but it totally works in the book. We are feeling fierce just looking at Edward, Bella and Jacob. Are you?
The reports that Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart have reunited and are possibly even living together again in L.A. have made our shipper hearts soar, and now we might even get to see their renewed love first-hand once more (or, at least second-hand). While they’ve managed to keep their reunion away from prying paparazzi eyes, their professional relationship may be on full display beginning this month, according to the Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 promotional schedule obtained by Deadline yesterday. Even when the fallout from the Rupert Sanders pics had many fearing a breakup, Summit promised that the final promo tour of the saga would not be compromised, so this should not come as a surprise. Rather, it’s a pleasant confirmation.
The times we’re pretty sure Rob and Kristen will appear together, per Deadline’s schedule are: October 28-November 1, when most of the cast participates in the press junket in Los Angeles; and the world premiere in L.A. on November 12. There’s no specific cast attached to U.S. events on October 11 and 21, and press/TV appearances November 4-11, so those might be good Robsten moments, too. And then we don’t know which cities will feature which stars from November 14-16, when the schedule just says “Premiere Tour in London, Madrid, and Berlin featuring Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner, Bill Condon and Wyck Godfrey.”
Us Weekly has a new story out this morning claiming that Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart have moved back in together. “They are living together and have reconciled,” says one of their infamously anonymous sources. “I knew he eventually he wouldn’t be able to resist her saying, ‘Please, please, please,’ ” said another “insider.” According to the article they’ve found a new home to share in L.A., as Rob’s Los Feliz digs “has too many memories.”
The pair hasn’t been spotted together publicly since Kristen’s Kiss-gate, but Rob was seen out and about enjoying Emmy weekend and Kristen just jetted off to Paris today for Fashion Week. Not that I expect them to go out together for a casual dinner of ramen noodles, what with the way the press is up their butts in a major way right now. Nay, I expect these two to lay kinda low, whatever the status of their relationship is (which, according to numerous reports, is very much ON).
Now, my first reaction to this new Us story was, “It’s none of our business. Let these poor people breath and live their lives without us interfering in their every move!!!” Because really.
But if I’m being honest — which I try to be, even when it’s mortifying — my second reaction to this was, ”I know I care way too much about a couple I don’t know, but this gives me all the feels, and I really hope they are taking time to work through their issues and rebuild trust and just connect with each other in a meaningful way and, like, there’s no need to rush into anything, guys, but if this is what’s best for you and you’ve decided this together, then godspeed, you attractive pair of cuties, you! See you at Ikea!”
But really, it’s none of our business. Right?
What do YOU think of Us‘ story? Holler at me — comments, Twitter…you know where to find me. (And yes, I purposefully chose an old photo of Rob and Kristen because isn’t it cute? 2008, you were fun.)

Singer/songwriter Christina Perri is one of the most famous Twilight fans around, and VH1 caught up with her recently and of course got her opinion on the effect Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson‘s recent relationship issues will have on the Twilight franchise. Her opinion: not much.
“I wrote ‘A Thousand Years’ for Edward and Bella because that’s my favorite love story,” she said of her song on the Breaking Dawn soundtrack. “Rob and Kristen, I think, are completely separate from Edward and Bella.” She added, “It’s their personal life. I think it’s totally separate.”
As for their relationship ups and downs (and now ups again, according to every tabloid today) affecting the Twilight franchise and fans? “It shouldn’t,” she said. “Because Twi-hards are Twi-hards for a reason.”
That we are!
