Tom Felton might have just won the Best Villain award at the 2011 MTV Movie Awards for his portrayal of the nefarious Draco Malfoy in the Harry Potter series, but in real life, his personality couldn’t be any sweeter. Our friends over at VH1 News caught up with the burgeoning hunk on the red carpet before last night’s big show and asked him about his old pal from Hogwarts, Cedric Diggory (aka Robert Pattinson). Felton praised his old pal as being “humble” not once but TWICE during our interview with him, and told us how much he was looking forward to catching up with his old chum at such a festive occasion.
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.

The world of science fiction and fantasy are more mainstream than ever, thanks mainly to awesome writing and originality in Hollywood and beyond. (For proof, we offer up the fact that we are personally not into most science fiction yet we count “Battlestar Galactica” as a favorite show). Spike TV will be recognizing the best of those genres in the upcoming Scream Awards, a show that honors the best in sci-fi, fantasy, comics and horror and encompasses films, TV and comic books. Where else will movies like Twilight and Watchmen compete against Drag Me To Hell and Transformers?
This isn’t your (genetically modified-half robot-flesh eating) grandma’s award show, however. With categories like “Most Memorable Mutilation” and “Holy Sh*t Scene Of The Year”, the awards will probably be as exciting as the nominated scenes they plan to honor.
View a few of our favorite categories with their nominees after the jump.
Mobbing heartthrobs is all fun and games until one of said heartthrobs, in this case Robert Pattinson, chooses oncoming traffic over desperate hugs. While filming Remember Me in New York City today, the Twilight stud was clipped by a cab as he exited the Strand bookstore. Though he wasn’t hurt, he was undoubtedly traumatized by the pack of unstable teenagers.Ã‚Â [Source: Radar Online; Photo: ]
He has now got practically all teenage girls in existence hanging off his every quiff-tastic word, so was it really a good idea for Twilight’s Robert Pattinson to advertise the fact he loves nutjob women? The British heartthrob gives an interview in today’s Closer magazine where he outlines his problems with the ladies — namely that he has a weakness for “mental” women. That’s “mental” as in “totally batshit crazy” rather than “mental” as in “intelligent.” Oh dear.
“The stuff I find attractive in women I always regret finding attractive. I always like a kind of madness in a woman, and when they are really, really strong. And they’re the worst – mental strong women! I like it when they hate me right from the beginning,” he tells the mag.
What kind of madness could this be, Robert? Obsessive poring over websites? Repeated viewings of vampiric teen movies? Frenzied screaming at public appearances? If any of these count, we don’t think you’ll have any trouble finding your next “mad” woman. [Source: Closer magazine, Photo: FilmMagic]

Twilight, the movie that’s inciting Beatles-level hysteria in teens around the country, opens on Friday. Based on the beloved series of books by the same name, the movie stars Brit heartthrob Robert Pattinson as head garlic-hater Edward Cullen, a vampire who falls for mortal teen Kristen Stewart. But Pattinson’s perfectly tossled hair, cerulean eyes and pointy teeth are just the latest in a lengthy tradition of hot vampires. From Brad Pitt to Salma Hayek to Kate Beckinsale, find out who else we’d let suck our blood.
The shrieking. The screaming. The crying. It has to get to a person, and it looks like it’s gotten to Robert Pattinson. The Twilight star looked dazed and confused on the red carpet of the Twilight premiere last night in LA, telling MTV News “I left my brain at the door. It’s completely insane. You never expect it. … I’m completely deaf!” While he held it relatively together during the opening festivities, signing autographs and sucking in his cheeks for photos, snaps of the heartthrob leaving the premiere show him looking more than frazzled. Even vampires have long nights!
After the jump, check out a video of Pattinson doing his best to get through an interview at the premiere. It’s amazing he even heard the question.
