Ashley Greene is a Twilight star and recent winner of the Fresh Face Female Award at the Teen Choice Awards, but it’s not her face we’re looking at today. Nude photos (link is very NSFW!) of Greene (who also locked lips with Chace Crawford yesterday) have leaked on the internet and Greene and her reps are admitting that, yep, they are definitely legit. Greene’s lawyers stated, “The photos in question, which appear to be of our client, are illegal and are being unlawfully displayed. Our client intends to take legal action.”
We’re all for this very Euro style of living where today’s woman is free and confident with her body and whatnot, but a) Why does every young female star have nude photos these days? And b) Do these starlets not know how to password protect their computers so that these iPhoto mishaps don’t occur?
Greene’s people told Perez Hilton that, “Ms. Greene is the owner of the copyrights in these photos, and as copyright owner, Ms. Greene owns the exclusive rights, among others, to reproduce, distribute, and to display the photos.” Someone should also school Ash in the uses of the internet, #1 being distribution of boobie shots, illegal or otherwise.

We admit that, while some of our friends and colleagues are rabid Twilight and True Blood fans, we will always be, first and foremost, Buffy and Angel devotees (from Buffy the Vampire Slayer, natch). We love a good vampire tale, but more than that we love the worlds Joss Whedon created, and we’ve been wondering what Whedon’s take on the whole Twilight thing is. Well, now we know what he really thinks, thanks to a recent interview in which Whedon claimed that if Angel (neé evil altar ego Angelus, neé Liam) and Edward Cullen ever got in a row, Angel would beat Edward’s ass. (Team. . .Angel?)
Says Whedon, “I think Robert Pattinson‘s really cool, [but] Angel would kick the sh*t out of him. Okay, he’s Angelus. There’s no Edward Cullenus, okay. He just gets shiny in the sun… [Angel star David] Boreanaz would have him down in a heartbeat. No offense, ’cause he’s hot.”
Whedon doesn’t totally hate on the Twilight series though – just like the ill-fated love affair between Buffy and Angel, Whedon thinks there’s something special about Edward and Bella’s chaste romance. “There’s something primal about that story,” he says. “You can’t get away from it, and it just works like gangbusters. I love it.” [Photos: GettyImages]
Cast members of the uber-popular Twilight movie series have begun arriving in Vancouver to start rehearsals for the third flick of the franchise, Eclipse. Fan favorites including Ashley Greene, Kellan Lutz, and Nikki Reed (who has moved on from Rob Pattinson to Paris Hilton dumpee, Paris Latsis) were joined at the airport by cast newbies Xavier Samuel and Bryce Dallas Howard. For a group of hot twenty-somethings with millions of obsessed fans at their fingertips, the crew appeared sullen and low-key as they sulked around the baggage claim. Ashley even made a poor attempt to hide behind her iPhone. Could they be overwhelmed by the recent re-casting drama plaguing the flick?
Noticeably absent from the group were the movie’s mega-stars, Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner and Kristen Stewart. Tay-Tay’s been busy shooting the rom-com Valentine’s Day, while one RPattz-obsessed Twitter claims the British actor will finish shooting Remember Me in NYC on Friday and then supposedly head to L.A. before landing in “The Couve” sometime next week. Think he and KStew are heading off on a romantic getaway before jetting to Canada for work? [Photo: Splash News Online]
Shooting hasn’t even begun on the third Twilight Saga flick (Eclipse), but drama is already plaguing the film. Just days after the cast got cozy in front of fans at Comic-Con, Summit Entertainment has dropping actress Rachelle LeFevre (pictured, left) and replaced her with Bryce Dallas Howard (right). LeFevre, who portrayed the vampire Victoria in the first two flicks, is a fan favorite, and is known for her friendly demeanor and her breast cancer fund-raising on Twitter. In a statement released last night, she said she was “stunned” and “saddened” by Summit’s decision, adding, ” I am hurt deeply by Summit’s surprising decision to move on without me.”
Summit responded by accusing LeFevre, who had also accepted a part in the movie Barney’s Version, of creating unresolvable scheduling conflicts. “Ms. Lefevre took a role in the other film that places her in Europe during the required rehearsal time, and at least 10 days of The Twilight Saga: Eclipse’s principal photography. This period is essential for both rehearsal time with the cast, and for filming at key locations that are only available during the initial part of production,” Summit said in a statement. “The fact remains that Ms. Lefevre’s commitment to the other project—which she chose to withhold from Summit until the last possible moment—makes her unfortunately unavailable to perform the role of Victoria in [Eclipse].”
Fans of the uber-popular series are freaking out across the web, and an online petition has been started in support of LeFevre reclaiming the role. But E! Online reports that Summit insiders – who allegedly wanted to drop LeFevre due to her gigantic salary for Eclipse – don’t care what the Twi-hards have to say. When asked if their protest would have any effect on their decision, one Summit source replied, “I don’t think so.” Ouch. Hurts almost as much as a vampire bite. [Photos: GettyImages]

Poor Robert Pattinson is too hot for his own good. The actor – who has skyrocketed to fame in months thanks to the success of Twilight – is constantly stalked by hordes of photogs and 12-year-old girls (uh, and twenty-something bloggers). “Poor Rob is already a Beatle,Ã¢â‚¬Â his co-star Ashley Greene tells Nylon magazine. “His whole life is documented. If he picks his nose, itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s all over the Internet. HeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s just done for. I think heÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s kinda freakinÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ out, like, ‘What the f*ck is going on?’”
Now the poor guy is worried he’s going to ruin the next girl he dates with his mounting fame. “IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m always really worried about ruining their lives, especially with people that arenÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t famous,” the actor said about his future relationships. “ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s such a massive change. IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m kind of a paranoid wreck.”
Uhhh, speaking for women everywhere, Rob, I can assure you your next paramour will deal with it just fine. Just do that thing with your hair and blink those eyes a couple of times and -Ã‚Â yeah, that. See? What paparazzi?!Ã‚Â
People love starting rumors about celebs kicking the bucket, and while the trend has picked up steam in recent years, we’re old enough to trace back it to the Great Mayim Bialik Is Dead Rumor of 1997. Just last week the Miley Cyrus rumor was all the rage, and now we’ve moved on to Robert Pattinson, the hair-groping star of Twilight. But of course he’s still alive, eagerly promoting his new movie to the billions of horny tween girls who are going to pad his pockets with cash. Phew!
