The Twilight Saga: Eclipse
As expected, Kristen Stewart has apologized for comparing her treatment by paparazzi to rape. “I really made an enormous mistake—clearly and obviously,” she told People. “And I’m really sorry about my choice of words.” Kristen had previously told Britain’s Elle Magazine that photos taken by freelancers “make me feel like I’m looking at someone being raped.” “‘Violated’ definitely would have been a better way of expressing the thought,” she says now, concurring with rape workers who criticized Kristen for comparing the harassment of celebrities to sexual assault.
Judging from our TheFABLife poll, little over half of the voters felt Kristen needed to apologize for her words, but the actress (who played a rape victim in 2004′s Speak) felt strongly enough about the issue to make amends. “People thinking that I’m insensitive about this subject rips my guts out. I made a big mistake.” Now that that’s out of the way, Kristen can get back to posing in glamorous dresses, touring the world to promote Eclipse and coyly avoiding questions about her alleged romance with co-star Robert Pattinson. You know, the stuff that had people scrambling to take her photo in the first place.

Seriously, you guyssssss – look at our girl! Kristen Stewart (photos) is out promoting Eclipse looking like – okay, we’re gonna just say it – a hot piece of ass. (Somewhere on the set of Water for Elephants, Robert Pattinson is shaking his head in agreement.)
KStew wore Prabul Gurung to the Eclipse premiere/fan event in South Korea, and it may be her sexiest look ever. We have no idea who coerced her into that fake hair, but when we find out we’re taking said stylist out for a drink or five. Now can we all just forget about the hoopla over Kristen’s rape/paparazzi comment and focus on the sparkly, vampy goodness in front of us?
Kristen Stewart‘s comparision of photographers to rapists in Elle recently may have been over the top, but there’s no denying things have gotten out of hand. Kristen and Taylor Lautner departed Sydney yesterday when security and photographers began fighting over access to the Twilight stars. Here’s one pap’s account:
Robert Pattinson may be busy filming Water For Elephants, but the rest of the Twilight-eers have already begun the press deluge for Eclipse (only 29 days away!!!!). Taylor Lautner and Kristen Stewart were in Australia this weekend, shaking hands and answering questions for fans down under. Meanwhile, Tyson Houseman, one of the new werewolves in the film, told the Sun-Times the answer to our big question: can a dude watch it without clawing his eyes out? “There’s going to be a lot more action,” he promised. “There’s a very climactic fight scene. There’s an entire war at the end of the movie, and I think it’s going to be a lot more guy-friendly.” Frankly, it would have been hard to make a more painful date movie for (straight) dudes than the two-plus hours of Bella missing Edward while Jacob stands shirtless that was New Moon.
Along with action, Houseman promises an opportunity to nerd out. “Another thing that’s really, really cool…you get a lot of really cool background stories, like with the Quileutes. And with the other vampires, too, like, you get to learn about the history, about who they are.” More action and more backstory? Don’t worry, Twi-hards, we’re sure they included plenty of staring time in the forest for you, too.
In a behind-the-scenes video of Kristen Stewart (photos) shooting a spread for Flaunt, she casually chatters while adorably fussing with her well-moussed coif and exchanging her on-set pumps for all-black Converse. The interviewer asks Stewart about inner beauty, and after denying them some cheeseball sound bite, she answered ”I’ve never really gone out with someone I’ve found attractive, initially.” This is where countless media outlets gasped, foamed at the mouth, removed all context and rabidly announced “Kristen Stewart Thinks Robert Pattinson Is Ugly!”
We’re here to defend KStew and her occasional inarticulateness, and call out the insanity that anyone with the ability of sight (or feeling, hey, we have to believe a run through his glorious mop could tingle the loins) would ever think RPattz is anything but drop-dead. Kristen met Rob at their audition for Twilight, when he was just some tousle-haired, bushy-eyebrowed British actor who played Cedric in Harry Potter. And while we’ve always thought the international hysteria-inducer was handsome, after we had the joy (that’s an understatement) of interviewing Robert Pattinson, we fell head-over-heels for his self-deprecating humor and befuddled attitude regarding his fame. We’re confident Kristen simply meant she fell for his bumbling goofiness, not his gorgeous good looks, like anyone who passes a magazine stand. Though given the eye-f*cking that went down on Oprah, we’re certain the secret lovers are plenty attracted to one another.

We had hardly begun wiping up the drool from the Muse music video premiere, and these arrived in our inbox. Our friends/enablers over at Summit just made our day even better by sending us three new Eclipse character banners featuring the Volturi, the heart-throbbing trifecta, and the newborns led by Riley. From what we’ve seen thus far, there was no shortage of male hair product on this set. [Photo: Summit Entertainment]
Let us first apologize for making you all suffer a week after feeding you a 30-second sneak peek of Muse‘s music video for “Neutron Star Collision (Love Is Forever).” We’re making it up to with the fully-amazing, full-length premiere. Team Edward will be squealing over the footage of the gorgeous vamp proposing, brooding and then sucking face with Bella. Did we mention the song rocks?! We just set it to loop x infinity. Enjoy!
Robert Pattinson (photos) appeared on Ellen today to discuss Eclipse, his adorable shyness, and as we mentioned earlier, his mostly-favored new haircut. While RPattz was as bumbling and giggly as ever, Ellen was able to pry five fun facts from the hysteria-inducing hunk:
5. He thinks he’s more beautiful than Julia Roberts. When Ellen asked RP how he felt about being named one of People‘s most beautiful people, he said he didn’t realized ranking was involved, and jokingly said that Julia Roberts “came out of nowhere” and he had been working on the title all year.
4. He “doesn’t think well in real-time.” When asked why he’s more at ease with a script in hand and the cameras rolling than in interviews, Pattinson said he hasn’t perfected the art of thinking before he speaks.
3. He shaved his head due to a bad case of “nits” AKA head lice. Truthfully he lopped off his lovely locks for his role opposite Reese Witherspoon in Water For Elephants, but he jumped at the chance to start a rumor that didn’t involve knocking up Kristen Stewart.
2. He practiced ballet until he was 10 years old, then “realized he was a guy.” Ellen then joked that Rob missed his opportunity to hookup with female dancers, but given he and KStew‘s eye-f*cking extravaganza on Oprah, we think Robsten (photos) is doing just fine.
1. He cannot be identified by his pecs. Producing a studio full of girl boners, Ellen invited one lucky audience member to participate in “Pattin’ Pattinson” where while blindfolded, she had to pick Rob out of a line-up just by feelin’ him up. She failed at the game, but won the award of luckiest b*tch on the planet, second only to Kristen.
