As we brace ourselves to see good ole Emmett Cullen grace our screens for the last time in the foreseeable future, arm-wrestling with Bella in Breaking Dawn – Part 2, Kellan Lutz isn’t quite ready to say goodbye to the franchise. This is, of course, after a bit of encouragement from our own Kate Spencer. She asked the beefy blond what she’d asked Robert Pattinson earlier — whether he thought about his kids seeing the Twilight franchise one day — and his answer was both delightful and mind blowing.
“I’m excited to have my grandkids laugh at my funny one-liners. It’ll make me crack up,” he said. “It would be really special to hopefully have some boys dress as Emmett for Halloween.”
Apparently not one to hold classics too sacred, Kellan also suggested a different future for himself and the Twilight fandom: “I just wonder if they’ll ever remake it,” he said. “They remade Star Wars. They could remake this, and maybe I’ll play Dr. Carlisle. Why not? It’s been such a big part of my life, I’d love to. I’d definitely come back.” Read more…
We’re loving these little insights into Robert Pattinson‘s adorably scruffy-haired head. Yesterday, we posted a clip of the actor talking about whether he drew on his experiences with his own father to play a dad on screen. Today, we’ve cast the net a little wider with an exclusive video of VH1’s Kate Spencer asking Rob about his Twilight character, Edward Cullen. More specifically what he’s “learned playing Edward both on screen and off screen that you think you’ll take with you in your next roles.” Rob’s answer is detailed and thoughtful, and broken into bits and pieces before looping in again, in pure Pattinson fashion, saying, “It’s a surprisingly challenging part. I think everything which … because people like to look at the audience because of it’s like, having young, screaming girls and stuff.” The screaming girls aren’t just the young ones, trust us, Rob. He adds, “It’s quite easy to sort of, not actually watch the movie. But I mean, the core story is so strange and also the part is quite difficult to know what to do with. I learned a lot about camera technique because I think if you take away every line in your face and your eyeballs and everything, you know … you have to do very, very limited movements on camera to not look like an idiot, basically…” Look at the picture below. No sign of an idiot anywhere, thank you very much.
Thank you, TMZ, for giving us this gift today. Do join us in laughing hysterically at this video of Jamie Foxx busting out some hardcore Michael Jackson moves, in his underwear. Sorry, we lie. It’s not just his (red) underwear. He has a cap and sneakers on too! That’s ALL. The video was taken about a decade ago but was just fished out now. It doesn’t matter, though. Now it’s going to be a part of pop culture’s collective consciousness forever. Our man’s strutting his stuff like it’s going out of style to the sound of Prince‘s I Wanna Be Your Lover. Could it get better? No it can’t. This is sort of NSFW because of Jamie being in his skivvies. But watch it as soon as you can because it don’t get more … foxxy, than this.
Tis the season to talk to celebs on the red carpet about the ups, downs and WTFs of the holidays. In the video above we’ve got Jay-Z dissecting the drama of drinking too much egg nog (we’ve all been there, Hov), Nicole Scherzinger getting grossed out over fruit cake, and Shame star Michael Fassbender claiming that he still believes in Santa Claus. Funny, that’s kind of like us still believing we can one day date Michael Fassbender! Here’s to ho-ho-hoping that he’s under the tree waiting for us this Christmas. If not, an advance copy of Shame will do. (Guys, he’s naked in it! NAKED. Happy Holidays to our eyes!)
You know when you have to go to your niece’s vocal recital, and you can tell she’s trying so hard but maybe hasn’t been practicing as much as she should have, so all you can do is stare silently at the program in your lap until it’s all over? In related news,Jersey Shore‘s Deena covered Alicia Keys’ “Fallin'” out of what was apparently sheer boredom, at least according to her YoutTube channel. “[B]ored in my room singing,” the Jersey diva wrote. Makes sense to us! Now, we know about Pauly D’s DJing and The Situation‘s…affordable tuxedos, but maybe singing just isn’t destined to be your calling, Deena. We say go with what you know. Not even the actualJersey Turnpike can do the Jersey Turnpike like you, girl.
Less than two weeks after Scarlett Johansson nude photos leaked onto the internet, the actress sat down with CNN’s David McKenzie toÃ‚Â discussed celebrity privacy. We know, but it is a thing. “Just because you’re in the spotlight or just because you’re an actor or making films or whatever doesn’t mean that you’re not entitled to your own personal privacy,” Scarlett Johansson explains to him. “I think no matter what the context, if that is besieged in some way, it feels unjust. It feels wrong.”Ã‚Â Do any of us really want our A-listers to feel unsafe taking and keeping nude photos of themselves in their phones and computers? We know that’s not the kind of America we want to live in.
When not stopping by the Dolce & Gabbana fashion show in Milan, Scarlett is working as an Oxfam Ambassador to provide aid to famine-stricken parts of Africa, a strong argument for hackers not to use up her precious time tracking down leaked pictures of her boobs. “[People] say ‘How do you deal with the invasion of privacy?’ and I don’t know,” Johansson explains. “To me it’s an adjustment, and there’s certain instances I think where you give a lot of yourself, and finally you have to put your foot down and say ‘No, wait, I’m taking it back.'” You go, Scarlett! Take all the nude photos you want. Let freedom ring.
Hey girl, Ryan Gosling’s Jimmy Fallon interview was super cute last night, probably because he knew you’d be watching it today. While visit the show to promote his upcoming movieCrazy, Stupid, Love, your boyfriend brought his floppy dog George along to the set, complete with a sock over his leg to prevent him from chewing on his foot. Ryan even taught that dog to eat an adorable apple as opposed to a big sloppy bowl of Alpo for you. The only reason we don’t think Ryan is a cyborg programmed to make us fall in love with him are those loafers. No man can be completely perfect.
If earlier this week you were wishing you were a middle-aged weather man after Ryan Gosling lifted Al Roker a la Dirty Dancing, today you’ll wish you were a Turkish bath employee, who’s stomach apparently got wedged in Ryan’s mouth during a scrub-down, according to his anecdote. ““Don’t judge me, but you know how when you eat something weird your brain sends your tongue to investigate?” Gosling timidly admitted. Oh, to be that hairy, sweaty man-belly for a day!
Thank goodness we as a people already saw Rebecca Black’s “Friday” video over 160 million times—we may never see it again! The singer has pulled the video off YouTube after the geniuses at Ark Entertainment tried to turn the clip into a rental, requiring you to pay $2.99 to watch it for three days. Since Black and Ark are already tangling over who exactly owns the rights to what, with her parents threatening to sue, the family decided to curb Ark’s bizarre last dash for cash.
Robert Sean Leonard is probably best known in millennial circles for his work as Dr. James Wilson on House, but those of us whose pop culture knowledge runs a bit deeper will recall that he portrayed a vampire in the teen-friendly My Best Friend Is A Vampire. This film was part of Hollywood’s late Eighties vampire frenzy, a period in which actors like Jim Carrey (Once Bitten) and Chris Sarandon (Fright Night) also played these fiendishly handsome creatures of the night.
Well, as we all know, the vampire craze has experienced a resurgence over the last few years, thanks mainly to the work of one Robert Pattinson in the Twilight Saga. So when Robert Sean Leonard stopped by the set of VH1’s new morning show, Big Morning Buzz Live, we asked him if he, as an elder statesman of the Sexy Vampire set, had any advice for R Pattz. Well, he hilariously admitted to us that he “couldn’t tie Robert Pattinson’s shoes — and I mean that literally,” but what really made us laugh was him trying to work out the logistics of how a vampire could kill a werewolf (and vice versa). Watch the video above, you’ll see what we mean!
The lawsuit says “the music video is directly derived from and substantially similar to the LaChapelle work,” specifically eight shots in the video, which he claims copy the “composition, total concept, feel, tone, mood, theme, colors, props, settings, decors, wardrobe and lighting” of his previous work. LaChapelle has worked with Rihanna in the past but he had nothing to do with the “S&M” video, it was directed by Melina Matoukas. The Daily Mail has a shot-for-shot comparison to see just how similar the Rihanna video is to the photography—what do you think? We think it’s similar, but not a total rip-off. Although eight instances of similarity might be too many for one video.
