“I’m not gonna lie. He’s a very, very handsome man,” revealed Reese Witherspoon to USA Today. But of course, is our response, because that paragon of steamy, sparkly manliness she’s referring to is Robert Pattinson, future babydaddy of our dreams. We’d also like to thank the blonde adorbsÃ‚Â actress for complying with an earlier request: whenÃ‚Â Reese got her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, we’d asked her to dole out more dish on RPattz in the next interview she gave. For that we got a fair amount of snark, with people commenting that we were asshats for daring to ask an Oscar-winning actress such mundane questions. Guess what people… she’s dishing (whut with a sprinkle of hah).
Spending a fair amount of time with him on the set of Water for Elephants, Reese has become quite the authority about His Royal Sparkles. She continued, “The fervor and madness and girls waiting at 5 a.m. on a set in the middle of nowhere just to see him. He’s sweet and loving and has the nicest family. Kristen (Stewart, Pattinson’s girlfriend) is really sweet, too. He’s a very sensitive soul. He worked really hard. He looks great in the movie, too.” Ã‚Â Excuse us while we melt.
Possibly the only girl on the planet who’s not smitten by RPattz is Reese’s daughter, Ava, who at 11, hasn’t read the Twilight books yet. But because she’s the luckiest 11 year old ever, she got to meet him anyway! And Mom’s reading list is A-Ok with us. Reese commented, “I really liked them, me and all my 30-year-old friends! I love the books.” Just another reason why we like Reese so much.
rnrnWe have never stepped foot into a Twilight convention, but having braved the red carpet at the premiere of Eclipse this summer, we know how passionate and intense Twi-Hards can be about the stars of this awesome series. Which is why we were stunned to learn this morning that Bronson Pelletier, the actor who plays werewolf tribe member Jared, was assaulted while attending a Twilight convention over in Knifecrime Island (aka England).rnrnLest you think that he was beaten up by a gaggle of screaming, autograph-seeking fanatics, Radar Online reports that Pelletier ran afoul of four drunken men staying at the hotel where the event was being held. Fortunately, Pelletier was not seriously injured, but he did end up suffering a broken nose after the tossers repeatedly attacked him with headbutts. No motive was given for the crime, but we can only assume that the guys were card-carrying members of Team Edward.rnrn[Photo: Getty Images]
We are Harry Potter nerds, and as such, anyone involved in the franchise can do no wrong in our eyes. However, we found a quote from a recent interview with Emma Watson to be kind of peculiar. Emma explained the romantic element of the final Potter films, she said “This kiss between Hermione and Ron is highly anticipated, it’s been building up for eight films now. And Harry Potter is not Twilight, you know; we’re not selling sex.” Don’t get us wrong, we love everything about Emma, we love her new pixie hair, and mostly we love Hermione Granger, but we found this to be weird, since Twilight is 3,000 pages of sexual tension and about 2 pages of island sex.
These are the books where the main characters do it all of two times (in no gratuitous detail, thanks for nothing, Stephenie Meyer) before a monster starts growing inside Bella, trying to punch, kick and eat it’s way out.Ã‚Â Sure, there’s the mental image of Robert Pattinson biting his pillow to downy bits which we’d pay good money to see, but there’s only about 2% more sex in Twilight than there is in Harry Potter. Just, you know, to clarify. Of course we don’t blame Emma for not reading the books, girlfriend has movies to shoot and Ivy League universities to attend.
To be fair, it was mostly vamps, but not all vamps at the 2010 Teen Choice Awards. Look at the hosts: Glee studs AND Katy Perry, who visited various high-school stereotypes through the show. Cue a gazillion costume changes (we like geeky Katy the best). And watching them were young Hollywood’s finest, including Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner, approximately 3 million peeps from Twilight, Megan Fox, Channing Tatum, Sandra Bullock, Selena Gomez, Leighton Meester, Ellen DeGeneras, David Beckham (wtf?), and The Kardashians. And my oh my, didn’t they look pretty? And some, well, didn’t.
The tweeny-teeny utopian 2010 Teen Choice Awards taped yesterday and were hosted by “Prom Kings” (the dudes from Glee) and “Prom Queen” (aka, Katy Perry, who doubled as a geeky backstage nerd wearing braces and bobby socks). As expected, vamps took over the show.
Robert Pattinson (photos) scooped up four surfboard awards (sans his pale, winsome lovah Kristen Stewart, who was MIA). The toothsome star won Choice Liplock and Choice Chemistry with KStew for New Moon and also got Choice Movie Star, Male for Eclipse. In non-vampirical news, he also won Choice Actor, Drama for Remember Me. But that’s just him moonlighting as a human, so it doesn’t really count.
The vamp tally stayed ridiculously high with KStew also picking up Choice Actress, Fantasy and Choice Movie Star, Female. What’s that we hear being chanted in the background? Team Jacob? Never fear, everybody’s favorite werewolf Taylor Lautner also walked off with Choice Fantasy, Actor, Choice Male Hottie AND Red Carpet Icon, Male. *Rwar*
There was a bit of a surprise element too. In a win that must’ve been bittersweet to say the least, ousted actress Rachelle Lefevre won Choice Villian for her cut-short turn as Victoria in New Moon. Ashley Greene and Kellan Lutz also scored for Choice Scene Stealer Male and Female respectively. And don’t even get us started on how many film categories New Moon and Eclipse won in. Hint: plenty.
BUT, they weren’t the only vampires (and, well, solo werewolf) who stole the show. The Vampire Diaries picked up six awards in the television category as well, making it one fangtastic night.
The winners list is long and dripping with hotties so if you’re interested, take a gander here. And look below for all the vamps risking life and limb to come out in daylight for our viewing pleasure. The show airs tonight at 8PM EST on Fox. [Photo: Getty Images]
Carlisle Cullen has a soulmate, but her name’s not Esme, it’s Jennie. In real life, Peter Facinelli, who plays the eldest Cullen in The Twilight Saga is married to our most favorite refugee from the original Beverly Hills 90210, Jennie Garth, and they are one adorable couple. The couple have been married for nine years and have three daughters and there’s no sign of their love fading, judging from a recent interview Facinelli gave.
Facinelli said of his wife “Sometimes we’re in a store and I’ll lose Jennie for a second. Then I’ll see her out of the corner of my eye, and she’s just the most beautiful woman. And I say to myself: ‘Oh, that’s my wife, I’m so lucky.’ Those moments just hit me — and they hit me often.” Look out, Robsten, our new favorite couple just might be Pennie.

rnrnAnyone who’s anyone already knows that Robert Pattinson (photos) is the hunkiest actor to have ever played a vampire. But what you DIDN’T know is that Robert Pattinson might also be, gasp, an ACTUAL vampire (!!!). Well, sort of. Let us explain.rnrnAccording to the publicity seeking research team over at Ancestry.com, Robert Pattinson’s sexy bloodline traces all the way back to Vlad the Impaler, the fifteenth century Transylvanian leader who is the original inspiration for the character of Dracula and was widely rumored to have drank the blood of his enemies. It also turns out that R. Pattz is a distant cousin of two members of British royalty, Prince William and Prince Harry. This is slightly distressing, as it signals that there may have been some inbreeding on one of the branches in Pattinson’s family tree a few generations prior.rnrnNo wonder R. Pattz is so brooding and bothered!
Entertainment Weekly just posted a teaser to an interview with Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart and from the looks of it, it’s going to be pretty awesome (despite his taking a dig at our profession). The full interview will be in next week’s issue of the magazine, but the online excerpt gives us a taste of how RPattz really feels about bloggers and how unfairly he thinks the media treats the Twilight cast.
Pattinson defends Stewart, whose rape comments were a subject of gossip last week and says “That whole system of Internet journalists, where no one is called to account, is almost entirely about hate. All these people get away with doing it because they have no responsibility to anyone. All they need is to get a salacious headline and people click on it, because it’s easy. . .there are so many little nerds behind their computers, on their little blogs.”
Little…blogs? Nerds…behind…computers? Rob, how could you?
And ironically enough, Stewart calls him out on his being able to get away with murder, explaining “You can say so much more than me. It’s insane. . .You could say, ‘I just took a sh*t on the Queen’s face,’ and people would be like, ‘Oh, I love him! I love him!’” It’s true. He could crap on anyone and we wouldn’t think any less of him.

Look, this Twilight thing isn’t going to last forever, but it sounds like no one is wishing for it to end more than Robert Pattinson. In an interview with the New York Times this weekend, our favorite sensitive vampire copped to being a little tired of the saga that’s turned him into a teen heartthrob and turned his relationship status into the topic of serious debate.
Pattinson said of his role as Edward, and the unending fascination we all have with the franchise, “It can get a little boring. The good news is that the whole thing is done in seven months.” Sure, he means the shooting schedule will wrap in seven months, but RPattz and Co. will still have to endure shrieking fans until at least 2012, when the final installment of Breaking Dawn is expected to release. But don’t get him wrong, he’s not putting down the films or his fans, just the monster that the media has created. He explains “The more you are exposed, the more people irrationally hate you, I think we reached a point, a peak, with New Moon where the stories became so saturated into the culture that it started to feel normal. It’s like the tabloids don’t know what to write anymore because they’ve used up all their scandals.” True, Pattinson and co-star/possible girlfriend Kristen Stewart have been fake engaged, fake pregnant, and fake broken up already, so we can see his point. Pattinson has been shooting the upcoming Water For Elephants as a vacation from vamping, but he can’t distance himself for long – production on Breaking Dawn begins in October.

Emma Roberts has learned a valuable lesson this week: Don’t mess with Twi-hards, especially those on Team Edward. Don’t taunt them, don’t antagonize them, and especially don’t do it while seated next to Robert Pattinson. See, earlier this week, Roberts and Pattinson appeared as guests on The Tonight Show, and when Jay Leno asked Roberts her preference between Edward or Jacob, Roberts responded that she was Team Jacob. Pattinson jokingly responded back “You’ve just revealed yourself to have absolutely no taste,” cue a few more playful barbs back and forth, end of story, right? Eh, not so much.
Roberts Tweeted about Pattinson later, writing “Rob Pattinson is so nice! I was slightly disappointed his skin wasn’t glittering & the song ‘Wild Thing’ didn’t start when he shook my hand,” and she was eventually mobbed with hateful Tweets from fans who were clearly on Team Edward and were upset at her for expressing her opinion. The influx of taunts from people upset by her Jacob loyalty got so bad that Roberts shut down her Twitter account. We can’t believe people take this stuff so seriously! Yikes. (But even more unbelievable is that so many people were even watching The Tonight Show.)
Adding fuel to the Team Edward fans’ fire is the rumor that Roberts is actually dating her Homework co-star Michael Angarano, who just happens to be Kristen Stewart‘s ex. Stewart reportedly dated Angarano just before RPattz stole her heart on the set of Twilight, and Edward fans seem just nutty enough to take that as some sort of sign that there’s some real life drama between Emma and Robsten. If so, this is quite the lover’s quadrangle, and it makes Pattinson’s retort to Roberts on-air seem like it wasn’t so playful, and makes her Tweet seem like it could have been draped in sarcasm after all. Do we think there was some real tension between the two, or was it all in good fun? The only thing we can be sure of is that, as with every major pop culture drama of 2010, Jay Leno is to blame.
