To Rome With Love


Robert Pattinson Gets The Woody Allen Seal Of Approval

Robert Pattinson attracts attention from Woody Allen

Looks like we’re not the only ones with Pattinson fever (yes, we’re convinced it’s a real thing)! Cosmopolis director David Cronenberg has a tight loving grip on Robert Pattinson and now Woody Allen is gushing about how he would love to work with the Twi-star! At the NYC premier of Woody’s new film To Rome With Love, he told that he “wouldn’t hesitate” to work with R-Patz. He thinks that Pattinson is “a wonderful actor. I’ve seen him act and interviewed on television. I find him charming and amusing and if I ever had anything he was right for I wouldn’t hesitate for a second!”

What an amazing compliment from one of Hollywood’s biggest directors. As if we didn’t think Pattinson was going to make it, he’s got both Woody and Cronenberg hooked and wanting to bring him even higher than vampire fan worship. During a recent Q & A at a London Apple Store, Cronenberg said he chose Pattinson to be in Cosmopolis because he ” just thought it would be wonderful to hear this dialogue spoken by wonderful actors, and I stumbled accidentally across Rob.” And of course, he fell victim to the old Pattinson charm. “The charisma that he has is obvious and is necessary for this film as his character is in absolutely every scene,” Cronenberg continued. “You have to have someone who has the chops, and is interesting and charismatic.”

Wow, our Twilight boy has a bright future ahead of him and we seriously can’t wait to see what’s next!

The Battle Of The Premieres: Silver Siren Malin Akerman Vs. Golden Goddess Penelope Cruz

Penelope Cruz, Malin Akerman: Rock of Ages, To Rome With Love

What can we say about these two stunning women, apart from it’s on! The two ended up wearing precious metal at different premieres and we were curious to see who you think won the battle of the dresses. First up, we have Malin Akerman who is looking better than she ever has in this silver Philosophy di Alberta Ferretti dress which she wore to the Rock of Ages Stockholm premiere. Malin kept everything else silver too, accessorizing with sexy Jimmy Choo heels, House of Lavande Vintage jewelry and a tiny Judith Leiber clutch. Loving the berry lips and nails with the wavy, blond, open hair.

On the other hand, we have Penelope Cruz who went a hundred percent diva at the To Rome With Love premiere at the 2012 Los Angeles Film Festival. And she went totally gold. We’re loving the Roman inflections of the toga-esque Michael Kors shimmering gold gown. Hello, legs. Add to that a gold belt, gold heels and gold jewelry and we’ve got ourselves one golden goddess. The nude makeup is ace, but we’re not too sure about the slicked back hair, but that’s a minor quibble. But is this the case of the gilded lily? Is it too much, or just right? Same with Malin. Did she go overboard with the silver, or get the right balance? You’re going to have to let us know.
