Even though Breaking Dawn just wrapped shooting, the madness surrounding the film has barely begun. We won’t be seeing the movie until November, but Entertainment Weekly has already revealed their latest Twilight covers. The photos are pretty straight forward, one features Edward and Bella (Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart) kissing foreheads, the other shows Jacob (Taylor Lautner) giving the camera his wolfiest Blue Steel. What’s most interesting, surely, is the story inside, in which we learn a bit more about some of the major moments in the film. You know: wedding, Brazil bone sesh, crazy clawing baby blood-fest, in that order.
First up, Kristen talks about her fake big day: “It was one of the coolest things that I’ve done. There was a certain point when I walked on set, and I saw everyone from the entire cast sitting there in the pews, about to do their bit. And it was just so perfect for me in that moment. It was so emotional in such a real way. I literally felt like thanking them for coming.” Yeah, we know it’s adorable because she and Rob are doing kissy things in public, but it’s even sweeter thinking of the entire cast coming together like that at the end of three years of making movies together. Tears, shed.
As for the honeymoon cherry-popping and the vampire birth, director Bill Condon says, “We shot everything — whether it’s the lovemaking or the childbirth — as potent and powerful as it can be.” HELLS TO THE YES.
To say we’re excited for Breaking Dawn would be the greatest understatement known to mankind. And the best part? All the good stuff happens in the first movie! Which means the second half of Breaking Dawn is just gonna be Stephenie Meyer sitting in a chair explaining for 2 hours how she came up with the concept of “imprinting,” right?

Well, we tried to come up with a creative way to post these pictures of the final Breaking Dawn shoot in St. Thomas this weekend, but we ‘re stumped. Why the brain fart? Because we can’t focus when staring at two perfect specimens trotting around half-naked on a beautiful beach. Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart in hardly any clothes? The best we can come up with is “asdfghjklasdfghjkasdfghjkl”
That’s not to say we didn’t try. Here are some alternate names for this post that we batted around:
- Do Want Kristen Stewart’s Bikini Body
- World’s Best Day Job
- Oh To Be Wardrobe Assistant For A Day
- Fail Me Now, Sticky Tape
- The Luckiest Ocean In The World
We’d love to hear your suggestions, so please get typing. That is, if you can stop staring.

We’ve got more pictures of Robert Pattinson traveling on Sunday (see photos of Rob in St. Thomas), this time at the airport in Miami. He seemed to be smiley and in a great mood for someone who works 23 hours a day, but what really caught our eye was this observation. According to the Splash News photographer on the scene, Rob “was welcomed to Miami by an airline greeter and refused a complimentary VIP shuttle, opting to walk out of the terminal himself.”
You know that moment when you’re explaining to a friend why you can’t stop swooning over Rob, and you’re like, “It’s not just because he’s gorgeous and has a jawbone that won’t quit, it’s because he’s down to earth and a good dude.” And your pal is like, “But how do you know he’s a good dude if you’ve never met him?”
Well, this is how. The guy’s net worth is rumored to be around $25 million and yet he refuses VIP shuttles at the airport. BRB, swooning again.

Onward and upward, as they say. Robert Pattinson (photos) and Kristen Stewart were in St. Thomas this weekend, doing some super-sexy reshoots for Breaking Dawn. Not a bad way to end three years of shooting a franchise, eh? Rob was spotted leaving the little island yesterday, wearing a sweatshirt (Really Rob? In that heat?) and lugging a guitar and his trusty black backpack. Girlfriend Kristen Stewart was nowhere to be found, so we can only guess that she donned her ninja garb and bolted off the island unseen. Rob is presumably headed to Europe where he’ll be promoting Water for Elephants all week before jetting off to Australia. We are hoping Kristen pops up across the Atlantic and Down Under as well. After their adorable and affectionate showing at Rob’s NYC premiere, we can dream, right? Plus Kristen’s half-Australian—maybe she wants to show Rob her roots? Yeah it’s wishful thinking, but crazier things have happened. (Example: THEY KISSED IN PUBLIC.)
Water for Elephants opened to mixed reviews (read our review!) but “over-performed” at the box office, raking in $17.5 million behind Rio and Madea’s Big Happy Family. Congrats Roberto!
Memoriesssss…like the corners of my mind…No, our eyes aren’t watery – we are straight up CRYING today, because the shooting of Breaking Dawn is officially over. You know what that means, right? No more Twilight movies in production! Ever! Guises…it’s OVER. Okay, so maybe it’s more like the beginning of the end, but we’re still feeling emotional and nostalgic. Some memories we’ve reflected on today as we’ve looked back on three magical years together:
- A time when Robert Pattinson was just “that guy with the hair” to us. How naive we were.
- Nikki and Kristen‘s hand-holding BFF-ship (oh, how times change).
- Cathy Hardwicke just being Cathy! Kooky ol’ Cathy.
- Comic Con! Kristen wore flip flops!
- The 2008 MTV VMAS – the hottest the cast has ever looked on a red carpet, ever.
- Rachelle LaFevre…so beautiful, so missed. Er, what – are we being dramatic?
- The evolution of everyone’s red carpet style. Yes, there was a time when Ashley wore flip flops on carpets and Rob wore all black suits, and oh, they looked adorable.
- Taylor Lauter, pre-abs.
- Edi Gathegi and Cam Gigandet, two of our fave dudes (with the best last names) from the first film who left us too soon. RIP Laurent and James.
- Oregano who?
We dug through a ton of photos today to bring you some of our favorites from the fall of 2008, when Twilight was just being released and the cast had yet to be propelled into mega-fame. Think of it as a Twilight 2008 yearbook, with this as our sign-off: It’s so hard 2 say goodbye 2 yesterday.
We’ll be the first to admit: we checked out a few of the Breaking Dawn sex scene pics that leaked late last week. But we tried to avoid most of them, for as much as we like broken headboards, we like remaining spoiler-free even more. That and, well, the images were obtained illegally and we try to be on our best behavior when we’re on the clock, though it’s admittedly hard to do so when dealing with Robert Pattinson‘s (photos) surprisingly ripped back. (Seriously, who knew he was that jacked? He’s so slender in person.)
Over the weekend, author Stephenie Meyer, director Bill Condon and producer/super cool dude Wyck Godrey released a statement all but begging fans to avoid the images. Their argument—in addition to the legality of it all— is that it disrespects those people who are working tirelessly to bring the movies to the fans in “its beautiful, finished entirety.” Good point, Twilight team. We were additionally moved when we saw how passionate Rob got discussing the leak with MTV’s Josh Horowitz this weekend. In the clip below he calls the hackers “s—heads” and asks for fans to “destroy them.” Adds Rob, “Why do this maliciously? You’re not a fan, you’re just a dick,” and “A lot of people have worked really, really hard [on the film].” See RPattz’s rant against the hackers above.
We agree that people who hack into personal email accounts or FTP sites are indeed dicks, but is it so wrong to look once the content is out there? It’s kinda like telling kids where their Christmas presents are hidden and then getting made if they go and shake the boxes. Thoughts on hacking and or Rob’s rippling back muscles? The comments section is all yours. Pics of Rob and Reese Witherspoon appearing at the Academy of Country Music Awards last night await you below.
Our pal Rich from the VH1 Blog sat down with our dream BFF Adele to get her perspective on a variety of American pop culture phenomenons. You know, the usual – Snooki, The Biebs and a little movie called Breaking Dawn. Adele adorably had no idea what Rich was referencing, but a few hints clued her in quickly. In the clip above she gushes over her fellow Brit Robert Pattinson (photos), declaring he of THE jawline to end all jawlines “a national treasure.”
[Cue creepy fangirl voice] Hands off, Adele. He belongs to America now. No, we don’t like to share.
Last week we thought our lil’ Twi-hearts had swelled to full capacity when word got out that Rob Pattinson adopted a stray dog and today his cover story in the April issue of Vanity Fair has knocked us flat on our Rob-lovin’ rumps. In the lengthy interview, accompanied by a Water For Elephants-inspired shoot that we must say is far less loin-tingling than Bruce Weber’s 2009 spread, the ever self-deprecating Rob dishes on everything from Charlie Sheen to Cops to a Pretzel M&M addiction.
Here are a dozen quotes that made our love for Rob swerve dangerously close to obsession.
12. “She was the best actor I ever worked with in my life,” Pattinson says of Tai, his Indian-elephant co-star, who lives in Southern California, where [Water For Elephants] was mostly shot. “I cried when the elephant was wrapped,” or filmed her last scene, says Pattinson. “I never cried when anyone else was wrapped.”
11. “No one recognized me or anything,” he says [referring to Lubbock, TX]. “And I was like, Ah, this is really cool, sitting there eating chicken wings and stuff.” Read more…
Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart lived it up in Brazil late last year, but those warm days are over. The Breaking Dawn crew has set up shop up north, which is why RPattz is standing here in the Vancouver snow very much not being shirtless. Rob and Kristen were allegedly kissing on the dance floor before the Oscars this weekend in LA. Judging from this pic, they’ll need that heat now that they’re back in Canada.
See photos of Kristen arriving in Vancouver Sunday—and cold little Edward in the snow—in the gallery below.

Fame clearly hasn’t gotten to RPattz’ head. Instead of surrounding himself with an entourage to stave off the boredom all celebrities experience, Robert Pattinson’s gone an adopted himself a puppy. “[Friends would] be like, ”I’m not part of your entourage. I’ll stay in a free hotel for a bit if it’s in New York or LA but I’m not going to come out to some random town in the sticks.’ ut that’s kind of why I adopted the puppy. It’s from a shelter and he was going to be put down. I only got him two or three days ago and they only keep them for 10 days.” Hear that, Twi-Hards? This guy is a puppy saver.
“He’s been freaked out. It’s funny,” he told Scotland’s Daily Record about the dog he hasn’t even named yet (“I’m going to call him Robert”). “I got a private plane here from Louisiana, where I was filming Twilight, so he came out of the shelter and the next day he’s on a private plane. A bit like Lady And The Tramp.” Can we get a shot of RPattz rolling a meatball to the pup with his nose then?
As fans of Robert Pattinson’s music career know, he has not always been a fan of the pooches. Check out RPattz’ angry song “Stray Dog” after the jump.
