This week’s Hotness is a tough matchup, for both talent and smoldering looks: Jamie Campbell Bower vs. Andrew Garfield. Frankly, we’re glad it’s up to you to decide, because we certainly couldn’t do it on our own.
In this corner, we have Jamie Campbell Bower, known to every Twilighter as Caius, to Potterheads as Gellert Grindelward and to costume drama buffs as King Arthur in Camelot and soon as the young Earl of Oxford in Anonymous. But soon enough, we may all think of him as Jace Wayland, the brooding hero of The Mortal Instruments. (No wonder our friends at NextMovie are calling him Mr. Franchise!)
The combined power of these fanbases should seem formidable, but then Andrew Garfield has shown that he thrives as the underdog. We wanted to boycott Facebook after seeing how his Social Network character Eduardo got screwed by Mark Zuckerberg. And though we can’t believe they’re making another Spider-Man movie, those expressive eyebrows alone are enough to make us say “Tobey Ma-who?” Will the fanboys and fangirls prevail to steal the Hotness crown from such a powerful vampire? Vote after the jump. (Polls close at 2 p.m. on Friday.)
5. We’ll be honest. We thought Anna Kendrick‘s role as Jessica in Twilight was annoying and poorly acted. Homegirl stepped it up for New Moon! She provided some of the most (intentionally) funny moments in the film as she frankly expressed her annoyance with Bella’s depression and lack of appreciation for shopping.
Twilight Saga: New Moonreview time! We caught New Moon last night (yes, squeee!), and while the movie will undoubtedly make Twi-hards bubble over with excitement as the title card rolls, the much-anticipated film was filled with moments of ridiculous lines, shots, and less-than-Pixar quality animation. [Ed. note: While Taylor Lautner standing in the rain shirtless, above, may seem to qualify as cheese-tastic, there were far too many squeals of joy in the theater for us to knock it.]
Here are our top five most unintentionally hilarious moments (and yes, there are spoilers up ahead):
5. The animated wolves. If they looked fake on the big screen, we can’t imagine how horrible they’ll be on our 27″ screens on DVD.
Four more Velveeta-licious moments after the jump!
Co-stars and rumored-couple Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart have been hopping all over Manhattan the last couple days wrapping up their press tour for New Moon. The pair has consistently tip-toed around the question on the tip of every interviewer’s tongue; whether their steamy onscreen relationship has seeped into their personal lives. Despite leaving Twi-hards with nothing but paparazzi shots of hand-holding and OK! magazine covers to debate, their interviews have proven them to be very likable and amazingly unaffected by their phenomenal fame.
On the “Today Show” this morning, RPattz confirmed every tabloid rumor ever, telling Matt Lauer that in the last year, he’s been engaged, dated constantly, overdosed on drugs, and dated someone named “Listten Hewert.” Before and after the interview, he graciously signed autographs and took photos with the crazed fans that had occupied Rockefeller Center for over 24 hours. See clip above.
After the jump, see Kristen Stewart spill the beans to Jimmy Fallon about Martha Stewart‘s crush on Pattinson and toss a football around. We’ve also rounded up Rob’s appearance on Letterman last night, as well as Kristen on the “Today Show” yesterday.
The fashion was “dazzling,” with many of the ladies donning sequins, jewels, and sparkles. The guys went for a Mad Men-esque look with slim-fitting suits and skinny ties.
Missing from the red carpet was Rachelle Leferve, who tweeted “being fired from Eclipse tonight was just 2 emotional 4 me & I couldn’t manage it. So sorry.” Bryce Dallas Howard was cast to replace Leferve as “Victoria” in The Twilight Saga: Eclipse. [Photos: Getty Images]
The Twilight photos keep pouring in from Europe.New Moon stars Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, and Taylor Lautner have been to Paris, London, and now Madrid for three consecutive premieres, and the jet-setting appears to be wearing on Robsten‘s red carpet composure. While the cast consistently looks fab (check out Stewart’s bangin’ pumps), it seems Pattinson caught a case of the chuckles in Spain. Pattinson’s giggly face is a welcome alternative to Edward Cullen’s often stoic, albeit handsome, facial expression. [Photos: Getty Images, Splash News Online]
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.
Okay, Rob, we get it. You’re ferociously sexy doing anything. The hottest vampire on the planet is featured in the December issue of Vanity Fair, wherein he’s photographed by Bruce Weber lying in bed, falling off a piano bench, and waiting at a bus stop…all while looking impossibly gorgeous. Accompanying the photo shoot is a candid interview in which RPattz reveals one of his legs is longer than the other causing him to look “like an idiot,” denies a relationship with co-star Kristen Stewart, and says he thinks he resembles a “cartoon character.” We’re not sure what cartoons he watched growing up outside London, but he definitely doesn’t look like anything we’ve seen on a Saturday morning.
Did we mention these pics are outtakes? We can only imagine what made the final cut. The December issue hits stands November 4th. [Photo: VanityFair.com]
Tween tourism is heading for a slump in sunny party towns like Cancun, Cabo, and Daytona Beach. This year’s hottest spring break destination? Rainy and formerly off-the-map Forks, Washington. The town where much of Twilight takes place has now added a Twilight-themed restaurant to its ever-growing list of establishments dedicated to the phenomenon. Joining the existing retail store Dazzled By Twilight and special event venue Twilight Lounge, is a family-style steakhouse and bar to be named “Volterra.” We can only hope the waitstaff is required to emulate Caius, Aro, and Alec.

Much to the Internet’s discomfort, the last few months have produced hundreds of videos of teenagers high on hormones reacting to the Twilight: New Moon trailer. While their overly exuberant and awkwardly sexual screams may have caused you to vow to avoid movie theaters on November 20th (New Moon‘s release date), we would like our readers to know that not all Twi-hards are deafening.
There exists a quieter, much cuter, feline fanbase. They call themselves “Twi-Cats” and they’re blowing up YouTube with their little paws, purring over Jacob’s muscles and captivated by Edward’s confrontation with the Volturi. TheFABlife has compiled the most die-hard of Twi-Cats into one video for your viewing pleasure. Meeeeeeow!
