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.”
“I’m used to long hours and late nights, but it’s much more rewarding raising a little baby,” says the 27-year old. “He’s the most wonderful thing. He’s so beautiful, he’s got the greatest smile, little dimples.” Not only is he super precious, but he’s also a sleeper. “We’re blessed because he sleeps through the night,” he added. Sounds like the ideal baby situation to us!
Confusion. Despair. Rage. Bargaining. Explosions. Shouting and waving around a dog-eared copy of Us Weekly. More explosions. All of these are completely recognizable human emotions expressed by Bruce Willis in his Twi-Hard With A Vengence parody on Letterman last night. So recognizable, in fact, that we were willing to ignore the fact that jokes about the Robsten scandal are, um, over a month old at this point. Hey, at least it was more thought-out than Will Ferrell’s Trampire rant on Conan! Or at least that’s what we going through our minds before we heard the rest of Bruce’s appearance, and…hoo boy.
“I was invited on one of their shows. The Real Housewives of Ishobistos Country,” Willis joke-mumbled to Dave about visiting Budapest. “What they do is, they get two great-looking women to stand and face each other and smack the s— out of each other.” Whaaa? Letterman then forced everyone in the audience to give the Expendable 2 star a standing ovation for no apparent reason. You know what? Maybe some people are meant to live their best lives inside a Twilight parody. Everyone who’s obsessed with 50 Shades of Grey, you know exactly what we’re talking about!
The past week has been a tumultuous one for Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and their fans, after the actress confirmed (and quickly apologized) that she had cheated on her boyfriend and Twilight co-star with her Snow White and the Huntsman director, Rupert Sanders. Currently every celebrity publication has a jillion stories up about the affair and the couple’s possible split, filled with anonymous sources and loads of speculation. So let’s walk away from the gossip for a bit and take a look at what lies ahead for each of the actors and their careers. While their personal lives might be stuck in a rough patch at the moment, their creative pursuits have never been better, with new roles (on- and off-screen) and possible awards-season appearances on the horizon. Consider this a pleasant palate cleanser from that toxic rumor mill that’s currently churning away extra hard right now.
If you haven’t been checking out the VH1 Twitter account, you should really take a look now. Our very own and very fabulous Kate Spencer and Sabrina Rojas Weiss are actually at Comic-Con and tweeting live updates and behind-the-scenes looks, which is totally awesome. And yesterday was all about — you, guesses it — Breaking Dawn, Part 2. We just posted a selection of the 10 best quotes from yesterday’s conference, which hilariously, had Kristen Stewart telling Robert Pattinson to jokingly, “Shut the f— up!” But apart from hearing what they said, we knew you would want a peek at the entire cast as well, and see how they interacted through the panel. As expected, they were amazing. The very dishy new dad Jackson Rathbone was there, not showing a hint of sleep deprivation. Ashley Greene was as lovely as ever in head-to-toe Michael Kors, while Kristen rocked it in a Fluxus tee, a BCBGMAXAZRIA skirt and Barbara Bui sneakers. The men — Peter Facinelli, Kellan Lutz, Robert and Taylor Lautner — looked smokin’. Nikki Reed and Elizabeth Reaser looked smart-smarts and smart-casual, respectively. And little Mackenize Foy stole the show with that smile of hers. Now we’re going to stop talking and let you have at the gallery so you can see it all for yourself.
It’s all come down to this: Of all the steamy Best Kiss winners in the 20-year history of the MTV Movie Awards, you, dear fans, have decided that The Notebook and Twilight were the absolute steamiest. Not that we’re surprised, of course. We just wanted to give you a chance to say so. Now, though, as we try to see which of the two is the end-all, be-all of onscreen liplocks — and I’m nearly out of synonyms for kisses here, so thank goodness we only did three days of this poll — things are really unpredictable. Both are between two undeniably hot actors, both onscreen pairings lead to real-life romances, both movies are based on beloved novels. Both are either regularly re-viewed on DVD in your home or frequent stops on your weekend channel surfs. And both make our hearts pound and concentration difficult as we merely think about them right now.
A few things that differ: The Notebook kiss isn’t Allie and Noah’s first, the drama is in their reunion after suffering a long separation — the result of meddling parents and World War II. And the instant Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams run at each other in the rain you know they’re going waaaay past first base. Also, rain-soaked clothing basically trumps all.
Twilight’s kiss is Bella and Edward’s first, with all the initial awkwardness that entails. But there’s an added element of danger that makes things much more exciting, especially when they momentarily forget to restrain themselves. Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson are all kinds of hungry for each other, and we feel physical pain when Edward launches himself backwards to prevent himself from turning this makeout session in to a feast.
So, as we fluff up our couch cushions and get the popcorn ready for Sunday night’s MTV Movie Awards, you have one last chance to decide between these two delicious scenes. We don’t envy you this decision. Polls close at 5 p.m. on Sunday!
OME. Just editing photos for our MTV Movie Awards Best Kiss Smoochdown is raising the temperature in this office today. The things we do for you fans. Round 1 just finished this morning, and so we’ll say goodbye to worthy contenders Save the Last Dance, Brokeback Mountain, Independence Day and Shakespeare in Love in this grueling tournament to determine the hottest facesuckers of all past MTV Movie Awards Best Kiss winners. The victories leading up to this point were swift and decisive, but now it’s time to make some tough decisions for Round 2. Polls close Friday at 9 a.m. ET.
Blame It On the Rain: Spider-Man Vs. The Notebook Tobey Maguire and Kirsten Dunst defied gravity, bad guys and the admittedly creepy factor of kissing a strange boy in a dark alley for this Golden Popcorn worthy makeout sesh. In interviews, Kirsten Dunst said the rain made it feel like she was drowning too. But all that discomfort didn’t discourage the Spider-Man co-stars to carry on their romance off-screen while filming the 2001 flick. Rachel McAdams and Ryan Gosling’s drenched performance didn’t seem to require all that much acting in The Notebook — the two were also dating in real life. We really can’t blame them. But can we choose between them?
Once upon a time, long, long ago (OK, four years ago), the MTV Movie Awards Best Kiss category was hotly contested. That was before the Internet rose up and demanded that Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart demonstrate their dangerous love before a live audience on a yearly basis. Looking back upon the list of winners of this prestigious Golden Popcorn award, we are pretty impressed. Aliens, star-crossed lovers, American Pie stars, Will Ferrell and Sacha Baron Cohen — a lot of famous smooches have taken the prize. Check out the montage so lovingly cut together by our friends at NextMovie and you’ll see. We are starting to get antsy as we await this Sunday’s big show, so we thought we’d entertain ourselves, and you, by determining which of the past Best Kisses is the hottest. (Note, that is hottest, which is why we’re leaving out the silly ones like those in Talladega Nights and American Pie 2, and the cutest of them all, My Girl.) We selected eight contenders for our Ultimate Best Kiss Smoochdown. Round 1 begins now and ends Thursday at 9 a.m. ET.
Heroic Makeout Spider-Man vs. Independence Day
Are we the only ones who decided to introduce upside-down kissing into our repertoire after seeing Tobey Maguire and Kirsten Dunst’s Spidey and Mary Jane go at it in a dark alley? Not judging by their Best Kiss win in 2003. Will Smith and Vivica Fox are underdogs in this competition — not that their gorgeously lit kiss in Independence Day didn’t make us long for some excuse to make Will Smith say goodbye to US like that — it’s just that the 1996 flick hasn’t been clipped and replayed as endlessly online, so it’ll take a minute to jog your memory as to why they took home the Popcorn in 1997.
Paul McCartney may be turning 70 this year, but “the cute Beatle” still has no trouble attracting the ladies! Dozens of stars turned out on Friday for the L.A. premiere of Macca’s “My Valentine” music video, which the pop legend directed himself! Kristen Stewart put in an appearance, but seemed to have left her rebel roots at home as she made an entrance in a super preppy skirt and blazer. We wonder what her rock ‘n’ roll godmother Joan Jett, who showed up wearing her trademark punky black leather, must have said. But that’s just the tip of the A-list iceberg. Gwen Stefani, Miranda Kerr, Reese Witherspoon, Gwyneth Paltrow, Zooey Deschanel, Pam Anderson…will the hotties never cease? Beatlemania is alive and well, folks. Check out more in the gallery below!
This clip starts with Bella’s voice stating, “After eighteen years of being utterly ordinary, I finally found that I could shine.” It then leads to a scene that we already saw in the first teaser trailer. It’s where Jacob says, “I didn’t expect you to seem so … you.” We then get to see a little more of Kristen Stewart‘s face in the following scene — which is also in the first teaser trailer — where Robert Pattinson tells her, “We’re the same temperature now” with the addition of him saying, “So beautiful” in this clip. What are the real differences between the two then, you ask? We get to see a shot of Bella’s ruby red eyes in this trailer, that’s what! And right in the end, we see a very ominous shot of her hunting a deer. It’s the little things, guys, that make tiny, repetitive clips worth it.
