Twilight Director Confirms Robsten Romance


Well, it’s kinda official: Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart are indeed a couple! Twilight director Catherine Hardwicke has definitely-maybe confirmed their relationship in an interview with Time magazine. She says: “After I cast him, I told Rob, ‘Don’t even think about having a romance with her. She’s under 18. You will be arrested.'”

When pressed about the status of their alleged love affair, Hardwick adds, “I didn’t have a camera in the hotel room. I cannot say. But in terms of what Kristen told me directly, it didn’t happen on the first movie. Nothing crossed the line while on the first film. I think it took a long time for Kristen to realize, ‘O.K., I’ve got to give this a go and really try to be with this person.'”

Um, so…there you have it. Kristen straight-up told her that she and Rob are getting that bed head from bedding each other, and hey – they held hands in public! What other proof do we need? Well, okay – a kiss would be nice. [Photo: GettyImages]

Taylor Lautner Making Moms Forget He’s Jailbait

Taylor Lautner can’t turn 18 fast enough for some ladies. The Twilight star recently revealed he’s been the target of some wholly inappropriate behavior from mature fans. “I’ve had women in their 40s come up to me and ask if I can sign their underwear! The weirdest thing is that their daughters are with them…The moms are crazier than the daughters, going: ‘Taylor, I’m wearing your Team Taylor panties, can you sign ‘em?’ And the daughter’s in the background, going: ‘Urrghh, Mom!'”

Is it even legal to ask an underage guy to sign your underwear? Sounds pretty grey area to us. Better you appreciate the New Moon studboy from a respectful distance by soaking in the gallery below.

Robert Pattinson Tries To Put World Off Him, Fails


Robert Pattinson may do his best to convince every single girl and woman on the planet that he’s just an average schmo, but it’s so not working.  In a(nother) new interview to promote New Moon, Rob claims that “if the fans were to talk to me for five minutes – the illusion would be gone!” Yes, because they would have passed out in a quivering heap and not be able to see their beloved “illusion.”

In the interview with New! magazine, Rob also addresses those rumors and admits he is a bit shy with a bar of soap: “it gets to the point where even I can’t stand the air around me. I don’t know, my personal hygiene – it’s so disgusting!” and that I’m-a-loser-with-ladies thing: “Any girl I’ve wanted to go out with in the past, I’ve lost to someone else.” You can do everything in your power to put us off you Rob, but, hey, everyone can’t get enough of your dull, stinky, hopeless self.

Twilight Star Strips Naked For Animal Rights


Twilight star Christian Serratos has posed naked for PETA, and the pic is – pardon the pun – bloody hot. The actress stripped down to her birthday suit for the Twilight-themed ad and voiced her anti-meat stance in a video on PETA’s site (warning: some graphic images of animals being abused and killed is shown). “I’ve always been opposed to slaughtering, eating, wearing carcass[es],” she says.

We wonder how Christian feels about the vegetarian vampires in Twilight, who avoid eating humans by snacking on wild animals. PETA would probably protest the Cullens, eh?  [Photo: PETA]


27 Sexy Vampires We Wouldn’t Kick Out Of Bed


Sexy vampires – from Twilight to “True Blood” – are taking over the world, and we’ve got the photos to prove it! While VILFs (ya know, vampires I’d like to…) may not be anything new (hello, Brad Pitt in Interview With A Vampire), there’s no denying that lately we’ve been bombarded with movies and TV shows featuring smokin’ hot vamps.

Twilight can easily be given all the credit for the recent surge in vampire lust, with Robert Pattinson at the helm. HBO quickly jumped on the vamp wagon with “True Blood,” the CW followed with “The Vampire Diaries,” and screenwriter Diablo Cody didn’t waste any time parodying the whole obsession by recruiting vixen Megan Fox for Jennifer’s Body. Yep, we’re declaring 2009 the Year of the Fanged.

The last three decades have produced plenty of vampires we’d gladly donate our blood to any day, including Salma Hayek, Aaliyah, and Alexander Skarsgard. Check our picks for Hollywood’s sexiest neck nibblers below.

RPattz: My Ego Can’t Cope With Success

Twilight star Robert Pattinson has already had the shock of his life, by signing up for a “really small” American film only to turn into the biggest craziest girl-obsession ever – and the poor love now admits he doesn’t know how to cope with the ever-escalating attention. After ‘fessing that he normally “stay[s] in the hotel” when he’s filming because of the teen-girl-and-snapper mob outside, RPattz admits that he’s finding it hard to come to terms with the success.

“It worries me because the whole Twilight thing keeps getting bigger and bigger and now it’s so big that even my own ego can’t cope with it. A certain amount of success you can mentally deal with, but there’s a point where you think, ‘Jesus Christ, what is this? I’m not that great!'” he told the Sunday Times magazine. But with vamp-freaks the world over drooling in anticipation of the New Moon release next week, Rob’s going to have to find some more space in that ego for further global craziness…


Firelight: Frankensteins Are The New Vampires

In what was undoubtedly the best sketch of last night’s SNL, host and musical guest Taylor Swift played the role of Bella in a Twilight parody, “Firelight.” In a knock-off lunch room scene, Swift passes on a hunky Edward-esque Andy Samberg for a sexy green-skinned loner played by Bill Hader. Instead of resisting the temptation of Bella’s blood, “Phillip Frankenstein” struggles with the urge to strangle her. See the trailer above.

We’ve gotta give the country sweetheart credit for her mastery of the Kristen Stewart lip nibble.

Bonus after the jump: see T-Swift blow a kiss to rumored-boyfriend Taylor Lautner during her musical monologue.
