If you’re like us, you’ve been following this election nonstop for a while — and if you’re like us, you mean the presidential election as much as the Twi-Fight going on over on MTV. Now we’re on pins and needles waiting to see if Kate or Jasper could possibly pull off an upset against Bella and Edward. But we also think it was kind of sadistic to pit the Cullens against any of the other vampires in the franchise. That’s why we decided to make our own little contest here this week — and to make the criteria a little bit simpler: we’re asking you to judge Volturi, Denalis, Amazonians and James’ crew all alike, purely based on their hotness. This is also tough, considering the fact that in Stephenie Meyer‘s mythology, all vampires are hot. But your blood might sing for some more than others. We managed to narrow this down to 20 vamps in all, now it’s your turn! Peruse the pics and vote. Poll closes Monday at 8 a.m.
While Kristen Stewart went edgy and black-and-white in Balenciaga for On The Road this weekend, yesterday saw her getting edgy and colorful in Peter Pilotto for Jay Leno. The actress was promotion The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 2 and chose the kaleidoscopic, digital-print ‘Damask’ Resort 2013 mini-dress you see above. She paired it with Christian Louboutin ‘Decollette’ black pumps and a Cartier ‘Juste Un Clou’ bracelet and we think the whole ensemble is pretty ace on her. And she was in quite a jovial mood through the segment. When Leno asked her, “What are you going to miss the most about playing Bella? Are you going to miss any of it?” she jokingly replied, “No, especially not these guys like ever, ever” while pointing to the audience. The conversation then skims over everything from those masks she wore for Halloween with Robert Pattinson, which she got from Tokyo. Which leads to an interesting, but hilarious, little bit about … sex toys. See for yourself!
Speaking of Rob, he was on Jimmy Kimmel the same night so it was a bit of a Twilight takeover! He also partook of the funny sauce as he was saying things like, “I don’t understand, my lip is literally like a vacuum,” when talking about his kissing scenes in the film.
Kristen Stewart plays a mom in Breaking Dawn 2, which IMHO, is even more fierce than being a vampire (but I’m a mom, so I’m probably biased). She totally nails the ferocious, feral mother thing in the film, and told me that it was the “one thing in the story that I took to.”
Says Kristen, “I’ve always thought that I was going to be a mom, but so so so far down the line. I’m not the type of person that’s like, “Oh, I can’t wait!” And I’m not hugely into babies, I don’t melt over the baby thing. But there’s something about protecting your own that is just absolutely ingrained me. I know that I’m gonna probably be a mom.”
As for that instinctive protective mom vibe, she says, “I definitely felt that. It was one of my favorite thing about playing this part, how animal she gets.”
In true Kristen fashion, she responded to my compliment about her onscreen mothering skills with “Cool! That’s f*cking awesome.”
More clips from my interview with the Breaking Dawn cast will be up Monday, including Robert Pattinson talking about his alleged golf habit and director Bill Condon on Rob’s vampire sex moves. Thanks for watching, guys!
We’ll start with the photo on the left, which was her first promotional stop in Dublin, Ireland on Friday. It’s actually our favorite from the triad of ensembles, even though it’s super casual. She wore a nude tee-shirt by A.L.C paired with J Brand leather leggings and fabulous cut-out booties by Camilla Skovgaard. What pulls this look together is the jewelry which had some pieces by Mattlin Era. Top marks for the tumbling ombre tresses and the fresh makeup. And that’s when it went downhill. We just can’t get on board with the outfit in the middle (barring the shoes again), worn at the Glasgow photo call. It’s a frumpy Dolce & Gabbana drop-waist dress and we don’t like the fit on her, or that tweet bow at the neckline. Even Kellan Lutz‘s presence hasn’t distracted us, so we know we really don’t dig it. But we do love those Rupert Sanderson ‘Flamente’ sandals. Lastly, the picture on the right is at the London event and she looks like she has a black nightshirt on. But, we’d go to despicable lenghts to own those heels. We’re hoping this is just a slow start and Nikki will bring it at the rest of the Breaking Dawn do’s.
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.
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.
