What’s In A Best Kiss? MTV Stars’ Opinions Might Differ From Yours

Just as Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart have dominated the MTV Movie Awards Best Kiss category for the past four years — including last night, when KStew had to settle for a little onstage self love — their first onscreen lip lock was victorious in our own tournament last week. By an overwhelming majority of 84 to 16 percent, the Twilight kiss crushed The Notebook in our Ultimate Best Kiss Smoochdown. Judging by that vote, you guys your kisses wrought with tension and danger, but no tongue.

VH1 News hit up the Movie Awards carpet last night to find out what the stars thought was their own best kiss, and their tastes tend to differ from the typical Twi-hard.

“A five-minute Frencher is usually the go-to, and if that’s too long of a scene and people get all weird about it, then a nice, light tongue nibble on the lip kind of thing with groaning,” said Jeff Dye, the host of MTV’s hidden-camera show Money From Strangers.

“When a guy takes me out on a date and it’s a surprising kiss,” said Kirsten Prout of ABC Family’s The Lying Game. “Not like a sneak attack, pins you against the wall kind of kiss. When they dip you down low and it’s romantic and it’s like an old Hollywood movie, I’m a sucker.”

“Yeah, and I like up-against-the-wall hair pulling,” chimed in Lauren McKnight, Prout’s co-star in the My Super Psycho Sweet 16 movies.

To each her own!

Paris, Nicky Hilton And Nikki Reed Do Precious Metal Right At The MTV Movie Awards

Paris, Nicky Hilton, Nikki Reed MTV Movie Awards

Let’s for a second forget that Paris Hilton is contorting her body into shapes that shouldn’t even exist. Trust us, this was the least pretzel-like image we could find of her with her sister, Nicky Hilton. Let’s also, for a second, forget that Nikki Reed‘s smile is more of a grimace than a grin. Because all three of them have absolutely nailed  a trend we love at the MTV Movie Awards, precious metal. Seriously, anything metallic or sparkly brings out the magpie in us. We all know that embellishment and sequins don’t always go right, so when the wearer manages to get every detail spot on, it’s a cause for celebration.

We’ll start with Paris in a gunmetal Marco Squared sheath with an embellished neckline and hem. We love the fact that the silhouette is cut like a simple, sleeveless sheath. No frills, no hipbones jutting out — she let the fabric and the lines do all the talking. Her sister, Nicky, also wore a Marco Squared design, putting on a silver-grey jacquard strapless dress. It had amazing attention to detail, especially on the drapes of the skirt. Big win for the Hilton sisters! They look sexy, but nowhere close to trashy. We’d go as far to say that they look pretty darn fine. Nikki also joins their ranks in a stunning Randi Rahm cap sleeved, gold micro-beaded cocktail frock. Again, the silhouette is one of a shift, but who needs anything fancy with that fabric? We’re glad she kept it simple, but slightly cheeky — note the keyhole neckline. Dull gold peep-toe Giuseppe Zanotti pumps and a Pierre Hardy animal print clutch completed the look. Take a bow, ladies. Which look is your favorite?

MTV Movie Awards: The 10 Worst-Dressed Ladies Include Some Surprises

MTV Movie Awards Worst Dressed

We feel really bad for the ladies on the worst-dressed list at the MTV Movie Awards. A couple of tweaks to their outfits and they could have been on the best-dressed list, easily. None of the looks in this selection are heinous, except a few. Brooke Hogan would be one of the few. We can’t even begin to deal with her bedazzled, stomach-baring WTF of an ensemble. Another, would be Ciara, whose red Balmain mini-dress crosses the line from sexy short to wardrobe malfunction short. We get that the deep neckline and little skirt slit are supposed to be artful, but they looked ripped. Julianne Hough should be given the memo that a peplum is not necessary for everything. Especially not ’80s looking lace Sally LaPointe cut-out dress. They make the dancer look boxy when we know she isn’t at all. Bad silhouette.

Now on to the ones we truly feel sad about. We love Christina Ricci, but we feel she’s got so tiny that nothing fits her right anymore. Her Christian Siriano strapless number would have looked awesome if she could fill it out a little. As a result, the fabric swamps her and it, somehow, looks synthetic. Lucy Hale fell prey to that same problem. Her color-blocked Catherine Malandrino dress just didn’t sit right on her, which is shame, because Lucy is so lovely! We also beat our heads about Elizabeth Banks, whose sartorial flag normally flies high. We just coudn’t get on board with her black Elie Saab jumpsuit. The detail down the arms and bodice looked … spidery. Look, weird fashion stuff can also be amazing when people own it. She’s trying desperately to own this — we love the makeup and hair — but the outfit has run away with her. Better luck next time. That applies to all these ladies. Have a look at the gallery to see who else is on the list.

Snow White Huntsman Chris Hemsworth Was Once Just As Afraid Of Charlize Theron As We Are

We have made much of the fact that Snow White and the Huntsman is a bad-ass, girl-powered (but still feminine!) take on the traditional fairytale in the weeks leading up to the movie’s release today. When our own Kate Spencer traipsed off to a castle in the U.K. to interview the stars, she also took a moment to speak to the men in the cast, Sam Claflin and Chris Hemsworth, to see how they felt about taking a backseat to the ladies. That’s when Chris admitted how much Charlize Theron had him shaking in his old-timey Huntsman boots.

“The stuff that Charlize does in this film as the queen, she’s intimidating to meet in person, let alone when she’s there as the evil queen,” he said. “My first day was with her, and I felt pretty rattled trying to stand eye to eye with her. Originally it was supposed to be my first couple of weeks were pretty minimal. But then they called me the day before we started shooting and they were like, ‘Now tomorrow, we’ve changed the schedule and you’re going to be with Charlize in that big scene with the two of you.’ And I hadn’t even met her or rehearsed, and I didn’t even know the scene properly.”

Much to his relief, Theron is more seasoned pro than evil queen, however. “She’s just so good that whatever she’s trying to do to you, your character, you’re feeling it,” Hemsworth said. “You’re sucked into the moment. She’s a hell of a lot of fun.”

Hemsworth seemed to have a lot of fun with Kristen Stewart, too, as evidenced by his retelling of the story of her punching him in a scene — watch it all above. Then check out a video below to revisit all the great conversations Kate had with the SWATH stars.

Movie Over, Christopher Meloni, Ice-T Says He And Coco Should Play Zombie Vampires In Space

When VH1 sat down with Ice-T at a screening of his film Something From Nothing: The Art of Rap, we did not expect the conversation to go the way of zombie vampires … in space. Ever the awesome interviewee, Ice humored our vampire-obsessed tendencies and fielded some very important questions.

After 12 years, Ice’s Law & Order: SVU co-star Christopher Meloni left the series last year presumably to pursue a film career and obviously for his four-episode stint as Roman on True Blood. As a 500-year-old leader of the Vampire Authority, one could say he traded one form of Law & Order for another, much more undead one. On the departure of Detective Elliot Stabler, Ice said “I’m happy for Chris. At some point, you gotta make your exit… If it’s up to me, [Law & Order] will be on for 20 years.” Hilariously Ice added, “He’s going to the best vampire they’ve ever seen because the man’s crazy – he’s got beady eyes.”

Naturally our imaginations wandered and we had to ask about he and wife Coco‘s vampire potential. “We’d be the best vampires in the history of the world,” Ice-T confidently declared. “But I think we need to be a different kind of vampire… like vampire zombies. [Laughs] The next generation – space zombies or something.”

Full interview below, wherein Ice describes Coco’s undercover love for hard-core gore flicks.

Exclusive: Kristen Stewart On Making A “Feminine” Action Movie

Snow White and the Huntsman is unique in that it’s an action movie with two women at the helm – the always fierce Charlize Theron and Kristen Stewart. The guys in the movie, Chris Hemsworth and Sam Claflin, play important but supporting roles. We chatted with Kristen about the “girl powerness” of it all, and asked her if that influenced her decision to sign on as Snow White. “I am really excited about that,” she tells us. “It’s so on trend right now to have that girl power thing. It’s great when it’s done in a way that’s actually feminine.”

“I read so many scripts now,” she added, “where it seems like they’ve literally taken a male character and renamed it with a girl.” As for Snow White, Stewart was drawn to her “very steady, very set staying power.” Considering the positive buzz Kristen garnered in Cannes last week for her work in On The Road, we think the same could be said about her!

Nicole Scherzinger Auditioned “Fair And Square” For Her Men In Black III Spot

Nicole Scherzinger in Men in Black III

“Don’t be late for the movie, because then you’ll miss me!” Nicole Scherzinger told VH1 News of her part in Men in Black III. That’s not to say she wasn’t thrilled for her first movie role to be in none other than a major blockbuster franchise, especially since she doesn’t feel like she was just a stunt casting. “I auditioned for the role fair and square.”

This isn’t the former Pussycat Doll’s first foray into acting, mind you. “I actually grew up doing theater and my major in college was thea-TRE,” she said, with dramatic flare. “But I have a whole new respect, because I’m used to being onstage — doing film is a lot different.”

Nicole, if these faces you made for us are any indication, you should be onscreen a whole lot more:

Kristen Stewart On Beauty: “When People Are Truly Beautiful, It’s All Encompassing”

Beauty is a recurring theme through out Snow White and the Huntsman — both with the Queen’s obsession with her youthful looks and Snow White’s benevolent heart. Not to mention, the cast is really easy on the eyes. (I like my Hemsworth with a side of Hemsworth and a little bit of Hemsworth on top … you know what I mean?) I asked Kristen Stewart about her thoughts on what makes people truly beautiful, and she offered up a thoughtful answer about how genuine beauty shines through one’s physical attributes, regardless of what they are. “I meet people all the time that I think are so gorgeous,” she says. “And then it’s like ‘Oh my God, you’re wearing a costume.’ ”

My personal favorite part of the interview is the adorable hand over heart gesture she does at the end. What would a Kristen Stewart interview be without her busting out a goofy/sincere/precious move like that? Awwww.

Exclusive: Kristen Stewart “Doesn’t Play By Anyone’s Rules” Says Snow White Director

Just what makes Kristen Stewart the perfect Snow White? Director Rupert Sanders‘ answers may surprise you. Though the fairytale is all about beauty (and his leading lady is admittedly very stunning) he was moved by what he found inside the actress. “She’s very vital,” he told me at the film’s press junket in the UK last week. “She’s very on the edge and very rebellious, which I like. She doesn’t play by anyone’s rules. She’s just got all those things that make a very modern and intoxicating Show White.”

Rupert said he didn’t want this film to be about “damsel in distress waiting for her prince,”  but rather a “leader” who inspires her people to follow her into battle for the greater good. He found his heroine in Kristen. “When I first met her with the producers,” said Rupert, “we all saw something really raw and primal in this girl, and we really liked that.”

So do we!

Exclusive: Charlize Theron Wants To Reprise Her Role As Rita Leeds In Arrested Development Movie

Here’s something cool I’ve learned about Charlize Theron: She’s really funny. She was hilarious through out our interview at the Snow White and the Huntsman junket in England last weekend, and she spent the entire press day cracking jokes and doing bits with everyone. I’ve always wondered why she doesn’t do more comedy, especially because her story arc as MRF Rita Leeds on Arrested Development (one of the greatest shows of all time, IMHO), is so.damn.funny. If you haven’t seen it please stop reading this blog post immediately, run to Netflix, and thank me when you’re done.

After years of will they or won’t they, it was recently confirmed that an Arrested Development movie is in the works, for reals, after a brief run on TV. And so of course I had to dork out and ask Charlize if she’d consider reprising her role as Rita on the big screen. Good news, AD fans! The actress calls her time on the show “one of my favorite experiences I’ve ever had” and says she’d love to be a part of the film. Also she describes herself as “a nerd,” which gave me a serious case of heart explosions. Clip above.
