The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones opens today, and the movie is packed with demon-filled battles, angsty teen romance and (spoiler-ish alert!) two guys whose love for their respective best friends is painfully unrequited. Their agony is nothing new — movies have long been inhabited by lurking, lovesick pals pining over a friend who’s too busy with someone else to notice. Check out our chat with Jamie Campbell Bower, Lily Collins and Kevin Zegers, the stars of The Mortal Instruments, to hear their thoughts on the film’s two love triangles.
We’ve picked the five most memorable rejected BFFs from the big screen — from Pretty in Pink to Twilight.
That really is Kristen Stewart on the cover of W Magazine’s September issue, right? We’re typing very carefully here because these photos caused us to hyperventilate. Like, we’re feeling all Victorian here, so someone pass us the smelling salts! We’ve calmed down sufficiently to tell y’all that we think she looks FAB. Yes, her eyes are blue on the cover and green in the shoot inside but who gives a biff? This is so freakin’ glam! As long as the Converse-wearing girl is in there and we get to see her enough, we’re cool with this bouffant-eyelinered-dolce vita-esque vixen showing up to the party.
The interview inside — about The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, natch — is pretty awesome too. It’s great to hear Kristen say, “I f—ing love me a vampire. I was 17 when I read Twilight, and at the time it was so perfect for me. The script was about young kids who think they can handle stuff that they just can’t. And they’re going to do it anyway. Because, why not? Just torture yourself. I relate to that. Vampires are a little dangerous—and we girls like to test ourselves.” She’s taking about Robert Pattinson, right? Right? RIGHT? [Calm down, Ambika. Find your inner zen.]
She also reveals how she felt while putting the character of Bella to rest. It’s been a hell of a ride for her and she explained, “I’d been anticipating that end-of-Bella moment. I was going, Oh, my God—I wonder how I’m going to feel. And the last scene of the shoot was at the wedding … We needed to film one more sort of honeymoon scene and we went to the Virgin Islands. After that scene, my true final scene, I felt like I could shoot up into the night sky and every pore of my body would shoot light. I felt lighter than I’ve ever felt in my life.” Poetic.

You know what we love about Kristen Stewart, guys? Well yes, everything. But specifically her fashion sense, and the fact that she dresses like an actual human and not a BRATZ doll. While we swoon over her skinny jeans and sunglasses, we’re particularly fond of her sneaker collection, and fantasize about the massive shelving system it must take to hold them all. WHAT DOES HER CLOSET LOOK LIKE?! These are the things that keep us up at night.
We’ve often hit up red carpets with some sneaker questions for Kristen in our pocket, but have never had time to ask (you know, questions that have a bit more substance come first). But seriously – do you not love that the girl owns a gajillion pairs of Keds, Converse and Vans and wears them on the red carpet? What’s more relatable than a celebrity who hates heels?
We’re celebrating all things Kristen this week in honor of her 21st birthday, so please join us as we toast her enviable sneaker collection and her casual, cool style that is so uniquely her own. Now excuse us while we go try to look cool tying a knot in our t-shirt, and check back here tomorrow as we pay tribute to Kristen’s lengthy on-screen career!
Well we can’t have this! UK website The Mirror is reporting that Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson are “on a break” at the moment. An “inside source” claims that the pair, who haven’t been attending many public events together recently, not like they did all that much in the first place, are taking time off and are just friends at the moment.
Says the source “Things have been a bit rocky for a while. They both have hectic work schedules, Rob in particular at the moment, and their phone calls were getting fewer and further between. They started to only see each other on set and began to drift apart until a general apathy developed. The excuses why they couldn’t meet up basically got weaker and weaker, and Rob figured they should officially cool things off and have some time to figure out what they each want.” While it’s true that the pair have been separated recently because Pattinson is busy promoting Water For Elephants, they’ve also been spotted on a movie date night where they were bombarded by fans, and were out enjoying dinner in Vancouver a few weeks ago. And before we start pouring one out for their relationship, we’d also like to point out that a different source at the studio told Celebuzz that Robsten is not on a break, saying “This is nothing new, they have been apart many times before.”
We’re gonna follow The Secret here and just keep thinking positive thoughts. If it takes all the brain power we have, we can WILL them to stay together forever.

We’ll be the first to admit: we checked out a few of the Breaking Dawn sex scene pics that leaked late last week. But we tried to avoid most of them, for as much as we like broken headboards, we like remaining spoiler-free even more. That and, well, the images were obtained illegally and we try to be on our best behavior when we’re on the clock, though it’s admittedly hard to do so when dealing with Robert Pattinson‘s (photos) surprisingly ripped back. (Seriously, who knew he was that jacked? He’s so slender in person.)
Over the weekend, author Stephenie Meyer, director Bill Condon and producer/super cool dude Wyck Godrey released a statement all but begging fans to avoid the images. Their argument—in addition to the legality of it all— is that it disrespects those people who are working tirelessly to bring the movies to the fans in “its beautiful, finished entirety.” Good point, Twilight team. We were additionally moved when we saw how passionate Rob got discussing the leak with MTV’s Josh Horowitz this weekend. In the clip below he calls the hackers “s—heads” and asks for fans to “destroy them.” Adds Rob, “Why do this maliciously? You’re not a fan, you’re just a dick,” and “A lot of people have worked really, really hard [on the film].” See RPattz’s rant against the hackers above.
We agree that people who hack into personal email accounts or FTP sites are indeed dicks, but is it so wrong to look once the content is out there? It’s kinda like telling kids where their Christmas presents are hidden and then getting made if they go and shake the boxes. Thoughts on hacking and or Rob’s rippling back muscles? The comments section is all yours. Pics of Rob and Reese Witherspoon appearing at the Academy of Country Music Awards last night await you below.
We heart this picture of a glammed-out Kristen Stewart and her Panic Room co-star Jodie Foster chatting it up after the 2010 Oscars. Two superstars, known for their dedication to the craft of acting and their introverted, private ways, just shooting the sh*t in black tie wear. Jodie is out promoting her latest film The Beaver, and in an new interview she dishes on her first impression of Kristen, back when they first worked together in 2002.
“I just love Kristen Stewart, but I didn’t think she’d choose to be an actress,” Jodie told The Hollywood Reporter. “I said to her mom, ‘She doesn’t want that, right?’ And she’s like, ‘Well, yes, she kind of does.’ Because she’s very much like me: She’s not comfortable in life being a big externally, emotional person, beating her chest, crying every five minutes. I felt she was such an intelligent technician, so interested in camera – I thought that would translate to other things.”
When we spoke to Kristen this fall we asked her if she was down to produce and direct and she seemed into the idea – so maybe she’ll branch out behind the camera…just like Jodie is doing now.
According to Page Six, Ashley Greene and Joe Jonas are finished!Ã‚Â They’re claiming that the hot young couple split weeks ago with a source saying, “It was mutual and amicable.” The cause? Their crazy work commitments. Apparently, Joe’s spokesperson didn’t want to comment on the matter, which tells us something’s totally up.
This really is kind of sad because we were finally wrapping our head around the idea of these two happening.Ã‚Â We love Ashley because she’s got mad skills when it comes to the men folk — Chace Crawford and (sigh) Ian Somerhalder included, and was reportedly chilling with Kings of Leon uber-hottie Jared Followill at NYC’s Avenue this week. So when Ashley and Joe got together we thought that she would dirty him up (in a really good way), because even with Taylor Swift and Demi Lovato fuming in his wake, he still seemed kind of bland (read: boring). We were right -Ã‚Â he did supposedly remove that purity ring for her! And Joe’s latest Details magazine cover is anything but vanilla. Mission accomplished, Ms Greene (and thank you!). Now we just need to hear some statements about whether we can putÃ‚Â Gronas to rest.
That Emily Browning has some nerve. Though her potential breakthrough Sucker Punch doesn’t come until the end of the month, she went and upstaged star Amanda Seyfried at her Red Riding Hood premiere last night by showing up in a tiny red strapless dress. Red! And she’s not even in the movie! Adding injury to the insult was Seyfried’s battle with her own dress, which had her tugging at the bottom all night like she was worried about flashing the paps. Hopefully the Twilight crowd will support director Catherine Hardwicke‘s new movie at the box office, so Amanda doesn’t have to storm the Sucker Punch premiere in a racy school-girl outfit. Actually, we’d love that.
See photos of Browning, Seyfried and other celebs—like American Idol‘s Top 13!—at Riding Hood‘s Hollywood premiere in the gallery below.

You know we love us some Robsten news here! Last week’s details of the couple breaking it down on the dance floor at the Chateau Marmont made us squeal, so you can imagine our glee when Twilight‘s director Catherine Hardwicke opened up about Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart‘s epic romance. It’s an EPIC romance, okay — which is totally softly lit and sexy in real life too. And no one can tell us otherwise.
Since Catherine didn’t really have that much faith in him, RPattz had to get to L.A on his own for the original audition. She explained, “I looked at a couple pictures and was like, ‘I’m not sure’. He had been fired from his last job, he was unemployed, he was in debt”. Apparently, KStew came to Rob’s rescue. “Kristen was like, ‘It’s got to be Rob!’ She felt connected to him from the first moment. The electricity, or love at first sight, or whatever is is.” Hah. See it was destined. That attraction between the now-couple was so palpable that it actually had Hardwicke worried, so much so that she had to lay down the law with him. She says she told Rob, “You’ve got to realize that Kristen is 17 years old. She’s underage. You’ve got to focus, dude or you’re going to be arrested. I made him swear on a stack of Bibles.” Hardwicke—who’s directing Red Riding Hood now—also has a piece of that romance right at home. Her beachfront property’s bed is where Rob kissed Kristen for the first time. For the screen test that is, and she said, “That bed made Pattinson who he is right now.” Looks like art mirrors life in this case!

Way to have your Robsten cake and eat it too, Ted Casablanca. The E! Online scribe is throwing doubt on the rumor that Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart were kissing on the dance floor at a pre-Oscar party last weekend, saying his sources didn’t even see the couple there. Plus, it’s not like these two are into public displays like that, right? But wait! Turns out Ted’s people did spot the duo getting close somewhere more private, though—a vintage clothing store in Sherman Oaks!
Yes, E! claims that RPattz and KStew were at American Vintage last Saturday, and “it was very obvious they were so in love.” Were they rutting in the dressing room or something? “Rob was a total gentleman, and was very attentive to Kristen. He also paid for everything they bought.” Well with their Twi-cash, they could have bought the damn store. So wait, Ted can’t believe they’d dance at a private Hollywood party, but he can believe they’d cuddle about a hip clothing store infinitely more likely to contain a Twi-hard or thirty? Next time try to put the contradictory logic in separate posts, dude.
