Ever since James Bond first crashed onto our shores in some tricked out experimental car/boat/plane hybrid thing, Hollywood has been nuts for hip young British thespians. They’re everywhere! They’re in our vampire movies (make some noise, Twi-Hards), our wizard movies (pour one out for Harry, Ron and Hermoine), our rom-coms (hats off to trailblazer Hugh Grant), and our TV shows about British monarchy (OK, that one makes sense). We simply can’t get enough. It’s been said before, but it’s like their hotness is magnified by that accent.
This Saturday the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) is hosting a 42 Brits To Watch gala in Los Angeles. The BAFTA president is HRH The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge (that’s Prince William and Kate Middleton to the rest of us), so these guys aren’t messing around. In honor of the big event, we’ve decided to compile our own list of 40 beautiful Brits that we’ve got our eye on; from upcoming Spider-Man Andrew Garfield, to action hunk Alex Pettyfer and dream queen Juno Temple. And of course we have our franchise favorites from the Twilight and Harry Potter sagas. Check out the gallery below to see the Anglos we’re expecting big things from!
Well, good news and bad news if you happen to be Robert Pattinson today. The bad news, he apparently got his hair cut with a weedwacker on the set of Cosmopolis in Toronto. But the good news is that he had a visit from his one and only, Kristen Stewart. So it all evens out. We hear that the new ‘do is a plot point in the movie, so we don’t think the punky look is here to stay. Be still, beating Twi-hearts!
But we’re certain it was all made better by a visit from his beloved K-Stew, who made the trek up the Great White North to visit her vamp. She did her best to sneak onto the set unnoticed, but we’d know that oh-so-casual hair brush from a mile away. Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to Squee-Town. Population: Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, and anyone who happens to gaze upon their glorious pale visages. Check out more in the gallery below!
Okay guys. Things are about to get real around here. Perez Hilton is reporting that Jennie Garth and Peter Facinelli (better known as Kelly Taylor Forever and PFach) are on the outs. “Jennie is living in the family home in Toluca Lake and Peter has been renting a home in Santa Ynez,” says Perez’s insider. “It’s not looking good!”
He goes on to insist that the couple is headed for The Big D(ivorce). Gossip Cop and Celebuzz are both refuting Perez’s story and thank the eff they are, because we can not handle our heart breaking over this dream couple. There is no married couple more perfect, more adorable, more sweet than Jennie and Peter. Together for 10 years, they have three daughters and always seem so normal, so into each other. Not to mention, PFach’s fatherly connection with his Twilight co-stars (even though he’s only like, 38) brings tears to our eyes every time we see him clap the little ones on the back on the red carpet.
Peter and his family have been on a cruise in Europe, and he’s been tweeting pics and videos of their journey abroad. We’ll take this as a sign that things our peachy-keen for now for Mr. and Mrs. So Perfect Together. Keep the dream alive, Jennie and Peter! We still believe.
Yesterday’s first annual Critics’ Choice Television Awards was quite the star-studded event, one where objects-of-desire like Jon Hamm and Christina Hendricks both took home prizes. While all the celebs congregated in one room for the luncheon and awards ceremony, the real action took place backstage, where our own Kate Spencer was holding court with virtually all of the winners. She even got a few minutes to chat with Teen Wolf star Tyler Posey and, being the Twi-hard that she is, she asked him if there was a rivalry beginning to brew between himself and fellow lycanthrope Taylor Lautner. “Do I feel a competition?,” he said with a mischievous glint in his eye. “Not really, no, because I know I would win.” Oh SNAP! Ball’s in your court now, Taylor.
Elizabeth Reaser stopped by VH1′s Big Morning Buzz Live this morning and offered up this titillating reading of some Twilight fan fiction. She’s not the first Twi-star to visit the lusty work of fan fic; Michael Sheen performed a piece from Savage7289′s Unexpected Circumstances last month. Got a favorite fan fic you want to recommend? Hit us up in the comments — you never know who might stop by next!
Um. Where do we even begin. To say Robert Pattinson was on fire tonight would be the understatement of the century ALL TIME. Our favorite hot weirdo appeared to be “chocolate wasted” on:
1) The entire Heineken warehouse.
2) The excitement of seeing his girlfriend for the first time in minutes/days/weeks (we aren’t sure).
3) The toxic fumes Tom Sturridge‘s beard is emitting from across the Atlantic.
4) All of the above.
Nikki Reed gushed to E!’s Marc Malkin that boyfriend Paul McDonald is “the one.” Sources also confirmed that the actress and the American Idol reject are for reals engaged. Of course we immediately checked out her ring finger and there is, indeed, some bling. So – is this Nikki’s engagement ring? What do you think of the news that the couple is gettin’ hitched?
We’re still high on our Kristen Stewart fashion freak out from tonight’s MTV Movie Awards. Our favorite of favorites dashed down the red carpet in a bold Balmain mini covered in sparkles and safety pins (stylist Tara Sen, we bow to you). Cue Carly Simon singing “Nobody Does It Better,” because truly, NO ONE DOES. Kristen kept her hair down and loose and her Christian Louboutin heels sky high. Do you love the actress’ look? Hit up our poll and tell us! And shout us out on Twitter too, we’ll be there all night: @thefablife.
This Sunday we’re gonna be glued to our TV sets watching the 20th annual MTV Movie Awards, and if you’re into glitz, glamor, and good times we suggest you do the same! It’s an evening dedicated to the craft of acting, comedy, fighting, and badassery, but most importantly to the craft of mackin’ it with a super hot costar while the cameras roll. All night we wait with baited breath to see which steamy screen couple will take home the coveted “Best Kiss Award.”
TheFABLife faves Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson have won the honor two years running for their part in the Twilight series, and this year they face stiff competition from Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Ellen Page in Inception, Emma Watson and Daniel Radcliffe in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part One, and Mila Kunis and Natalie Portman in Black Swan. Twi-Bro Taylor Lautner is even making a play for the crown for his lip lock with K-Stew in Eclipse.
Who’s gonna get the golden popcorn this year? Tune in Sunday at 9 PM and find out! To hold you over, check out our collection of the most sizzling kisses from the past ten years! Please don’t drool, it might short out your keyboard. Who do you think had the best movie kiss of all time?
