A very nice present, indeed!

2010 in Review: The Twilight Saga Continues It's Vampiric Reign


Last year we listed off the movies, TV shows and other pop-cult gems we were most excited for in 2010, and though the Wizarding World of Harry Potter got the top spot (come on, it's a theme park), "The Twilight Saga: Eclipse" was the movie we were most looking forward to. It's been a big year for "The Twilight Saga," and "Eclipse" definitely did not disappoint. As another year of "Twilight"'s domination is about to begin, we figured now would be a good time to look back at the series' biggest moments in 2010.

"New Moon" had hit theaters only several months before, but "The Twilight Saga" started 2010 off with a bang when there was reportedly some drama between Stephenie Meyer and Summit Entertainment over "Breaking Dawn," though the "Twilight" author quickly dispelled that rumor. That was followed closely with producer Wyck Godfrey's announcement that "Breaking Dawn" was gearing up to film the coming fall. We were all holding on to every will-they-won't-they rumor (3D? CGI Renesmee? One or two films?), and it took the majority of the year for any of those questions to be answered.

While we waited for more "Breaking Dawn" news, Summit announced the "New Moon" release date and two "Twilight" stars went from dating to engaged. In February we learned that we'd get a trailer for "Eclipse" before RPattz's other film "Remember Me," and found out why Robert is bothered.

A month later we got a teaser for that trailer, and then had to wait six days until we got the full-length version. We were all pretty thrilled when we found out the trailer showed Bella's engagement ring, but that was nothing compared to the excitement we felt when Stephenie Meyer announced she was releasing a novella about Bree Tanner.

While all that was unfolding, there were still a lot of questions being asked about "Breaking Dawn." Three directors had been short-listed for the job, and the stars were pretty excited about them. On April 28 director Bill Condon was chosen for the honor. Bill convinced fans he was the man for the job by writing them a letter, and an official release date announcement came soon after. Hello, November 18, 2011!

But we weren't the only ones with "Twilight" fever; Oprah caught the bug too! First she premiered an epic new "Eclipse" trailer and then showed some lucky fans an early cut of "Eclipse". Audience members gave us the inside scoop on her special "Eclipse"-themed episode, too.

There was more "Breaking Dawn" drama when rumors hit the web that Ashley Greene and Kellan Lutz might not be returning for the final "Twilight Saga" film, but those were quickly resolved. And, with a month left until "Eclipse" hit theaters, the soundtrack listing was finally revealed. As if we couldn't get any more excited for the film, it was announced that Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner were going to be presenting a new clip from the film at the MTV Movie Awards, and we totally loved it when they did. It helped that "New Moon" swept the awards show as well.

By the time June finally rolled around, we had two things to look forward to: "The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner" and "Eclipse." We camped out all night for both, and both surpassed our expectations.

With "Eclipse" out, all the focus could now shift to the final film in the "Twilight" series. Or rather, two films. "Breaking Dawn" was announced as a two-parter and the second half would be released on November 16, 2012. Wyck Godfrey also leaked that Robsten are totally an item, and we found out "Twilight" could be the most successful film franchise ever, on top of the fact that vamps have made $7 billion since 2008.

Screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg hinted that there might not be a birthing scene, but she quickly retracted that statement and instead started talking about all of "Breaking Dawn"'s new vampires. There are a lot of them, and they're pretty much all cast by now. Unfortunately, James Franco wasn't one of them. But the most important casting announcement was that 9-year-old Mackenzie Foy would play Bella and Edward's daughter, Renesmee.

"Breaking Dawn" filming is now underway, and we've seen awesome paparazzi pictures of Bella and Edward's honeymoon and the Volturi hanging out. Of course, we also found out why Bella is covered in feathers. The "Eclipse" DVD release got us looking forward to a whole new year of "Breaking Dawn" news as we count down the next 11 months until the first film hits theaters. After all, there's soundtracks to be announced, awards shows to sweep and relationships to cross our fingers for in the meantime, and probably lots of "Twilight"-related fodder we can't even begin to anticipate.

Breaking Dawn Stars Visit Louisiana Children's Hospital!


He may be missing the traditional red hat, but we think Kellan Lutz makes one seriously sexy Santa Claus!

As if you needed yet another reason to love the cast of Breaking Dawn, some of the stars took time out of their busy schedule Dec. 16 to visit sick children! Kellan Lutz, Nikki Reed, Peter Facinelli and Elizabeth Reaser brought some Christmas cheer, vampire-style, to Our Lady of the Lake Children’s Hospital in Baton Rouge, La., and the kids were all thrilled to have them there.

Breaking Dawn - First Look at Volturi


It's because we said we are almost more excited for "Water for Elephants" than we are for "Breaking Dawn," isn't it? Or maybe these awesome new set photos are an early Christmas present from Summit Entertainment? To be perfectly honest, it doesn't matter what the reason, we're just thrilled to get our first glimpse of the Volturi on the set of "Breaking Dawn"!

Dakota Fanning is getting some final touch ups on her make-up in this first photo, while Christopher Heyerdahl shows off his luscious locks and Jamie Campbell Bower looks on approvingly from the sidelines. In the second photo (after the jump), Michael Sheen looks a bit nervous as he reprises his role as Volturi head honcho. Maybe it's because he knew we missed him so much in "Eclipse"? Regardless, it's good to see the fam back together!

We're kind of curious about what scene the Volturi could be filming so early in production? After all, "Breaking Dawn" is going to have a pretty long shoot since they're filming both parts of the movie back-to-back. Either director Bill Condon has decided to film the final "fight" sequence really early in the production process, or the Volturi are going to have a couple extra scenes than they did in the book. We already heard rumors that Alice is going to have a vision of the fight scene, and we'll see that, but maybe there are going to be some shots of the Volturi when they find out about Bella and Edward's baby to add some continuity to the films and amp up the suspense? Guess we'll just have to wait and see.

These aren't the first pictures we've seen from the set of "Breaking Dawn," of course. Last month we saw Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart filming Edward and Bella's honeymoon, being all adorable and smooching in public. And then there was the first official photo released of the film showing the infamous feather scene. Who's counting down the days until November 18?

Ashley at NYC Eclipse Signing

Twilight star Ashley Greene was all smiles as she treated fans to signed DVDs of the latest installment of the Twilight Saga, Eclipse.

And while her co-stars Kristen Stewart or Robert Pattinson did not attend the signing event in New York City, Ashley had more than enough enthusiasm to go round, telling followers on Twitter after the event: 'OMG just met so many incredible fans at the Best Buy Eclipse DVD signing! I am so grateful! Love you all!'

The gorgeous actress revealed she'd come to the signing straight from a cover shoot, and after the event went out for dinner with singing-sensation boyfriend Joe Jonas.

Going for an off-duty, casual chic look, Ashley wore a black and white printed top with cut-out shoulder detailing over skinny black jeans.

But it was the Twilight star's hair that caught our attention. Moving away from her summer blonde highlights, Ashley showed off her lustrous long brunette locks, enviably volumous in a delicious chocolate hue. It's a shade we'll definitely be asking our hairstylist to recreate!

Who From Twilight Will be at the People's Choice Awards?

From EOnline:

With Eclipse leading the People's Choice Awards nominations, many are wondering who from that good-lookin' cast will be there to represent since, Breaking Dawn filming is going strong over in Louisiana.

Well, we just heard one Twilight star that will be making an appearance...

Kristen Stewart!

And we're sure there are more Twilight names to come.

Sources close to the show tell us that—as of now—our fave young starlet is set to be in attendance.

Yay! How we've missed seeing K.Stew glam it up on carpets.

There have already been some Twitter rumblings from girls in the fashion industry pulling outfit choices for Kris, so we're assuming it's gotta be for the PCA's (although all of Hollywood is currently on the hunt for Golden Globes dresses too, but uh, there are no Eclipse nom's there).

The People's Choice Awards are Jan. 5 in Los Angeles.

The cast will obviously get some time off from filming Breaking Dawn over Christmas, but we doubt Stewart will get as much of a break as she did last year.....

No word quite yet whether Rob will be at the People's Choice Awards too, but we'll keep ya posted.

We've put in a call to Stewart's rep to see if we can get official comment on her PCA appearance but have yet to hear back.

Kellan: Rob Has the Best Abs Now


Twilight star Kellan Lutz has revealed that he is “very impressed” with Robert Pattinson’s abs following his co-star’s intense training for new movie Breaking Dawn.

Lutz, who stars as buff vampire Emmett Cullen in the film series, told Access Hollywood that Pattinson has been training hard in preparation for the upcoming movie.

Asked who has the best abs, he said: 'I think Rob does now. Rob has been very diligent on his bicycle. He bikes a lot and he's been training.

'I'm very impressed with him and I'd say that Rob [has the best abs] now.'

Lutz added that he is looking forward to shooting his Breaking Dawn scenes with Kristen Stewart, who plays Bella Swan.

He said: 'I'm really excited to shoot the arm-wrestling scene between Bella and Emmett because I know it's one of those scenes that the fans are really looking forward to.

'Even when I do conventions or hang out with the fans, they're excited and they're like, 'Is that going to be in the screenplay, in the movie?' And it is… and I can't wait to shoot it.'

Reese's Take on Rob!


Reese Witherspoon says she finds her "Water for Elephants" costar, Robert Pattinson, "extraordinarily attractive."

The actress made her comments about the "Twilight Saga" hunk to MTV during an interview to promote her upcoming film, "How Do You Know?"

In the film, which is based on a novel by Sara Gruen, Pattinson plays a veterinarian who joins the circus to take care of the animals. He falls in love with Witherspoon's character, an equestrian star in the circus, who is married to an abusive animal trainer.

Witherspoon tells the music network that while filming "Water For Elephants," "Twilight" fans would camp out for a glimpse at Pattinson. "The only thing I can compare it to is when Leo [DiCaprio] was in 'Titanic,'" she said. "It was that kind of fervor about a person. The women lining up outside the set - it was just unbelievable - till 5 o'clock in the morning waiting to just glimpse him."

She went on to compliment her costar saying, "Robert is such a great guy from a great family."She added, "That's the thing that's so funny. He's not really this bad boy; he's just a great guy and really worked hard on 'Water for Elephants.'"

"Water for Elephants" is set for release on April 15, 2011.

Which Twilight Vampire Wants His Own Spinoff Flick?


Anyone up for some more Twilight flicks after the franchise's last installment Breaking Dawn?

It could happen if one of the film's stars gets their way. In fact, a certain member of the Cullen clan already has a name picked out for their very own spinoff...

"The Emmett Chronicles!" Kellan Lutz told us last night at the Hollywood premiere of his film Meskada when asked about adding to the Twilight series.
"Sure, why not?" he says. "I would love to have dialogue more than one-liners. That would be amazing! Emmett really has a great side story. Just his whole upbringing and how he got turned into a vampire and his whole grizzly bear attack and how Rosalie saved him. It would be nice to see a spin[off]."

Attention Nikki Reed: Lutz wants you to join him as onscreen love interest Rosalie Hale for some extra-steamy R-rated scenes.

"You see Rosalie and Emmett go into a shack and have monkey madness fun," adds the 25-year-old. "I mean, there could be some great moments for the older fans."

Sounds pretty sexy to us!

One thing the actor won't miss when all the Twilight films are over? The pasty white complexion he rocks in the vampire series.

"I cannot wait to get a freaking tan!" Lutz laughed. "I just want to go to an island and get a real tan. The whole black and pale skin just does not work."

Wednesday, December 1, 2010



Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart are the stars of the 'Twilight Saga' movies and are currently filming the sexiest movie yet. 'The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn' is the most romantic and sexy of the 'Twilight' books written by Stephanie Meyer and the movie promises to highlight that subtle sensuality.

Summit Entertainment has released the first photograph highlighting that subtlety and it looks pretty hot. While we don't know exactly how much sex and romance will be in 'Breaking Dawn' - remember a lot of fans are very young, it still promises to be a movie highlighting the passion between Bella Swan and Edward Cullen, played by real life couple Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart.

Eclipse DVD "Tent Scene" Including Hiliarious Commentary by Rob & Kristen


All right Twilighters, have we got a Thanksgiving treat for you! While "The Twilight Saga: Eclipse" DVD doesn't come out until December 4, MTV News is delighted to present an exclusive clip from the highly anticipated release — complete with commentary from Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart!

This isn't just any clip either. Summit has kindly bestowed upon us a juicy little snippet from the fan favorite "tent scene."

In this clip, fans get to see the heated exchange between Edward (Pattinson) and Jacob (Taylor Lautner) as they discuss how Jacob will have to get into a sleeping bag with Bella (Stewart) in order to keep her warm and save her from freezing to death. Edward, of course, is not at all pleased with Jacob getting anywhere near Bella, but he must concede for Bella's sake. Jacob, taking advantage of the situation, revels in the fact that his warmer-than-normal body temperature means he can do for Bella what Edward can't.

The scene itself offers plenty of entertainment, but it's Pattinson and Stewart's hilarious voiceover commentary about the scene that really sells it.

"Slurp your coffee a little bit more," we hear Stewart say to Pattinson. "That's what the fans want."

"It's not coffee," Pattinson responds. "It's an Arnold Palmer," he says, attempting to pronounce it with an American accent.

"You're drinking an Arnold Palmer?" Stewart asks, sounding amused. "Having a little lemonade and iced tea?"

Meanwhile, Jacob has just crawled into Bella's sleeping bag, which draws Stewart and Pattinson back to the clip.

"God, he's so gross, so brazen!" Pattinson says of Lautner's werewolf. "I really don't like Jacob."

"Aww," Stewart says.

"Look at him and his tattoo and stuff. Ugh," Pattinson mock scoffs.

"He's just young and overzealous," Stewart says defending the young wolf.

"He's not!" Pattinson insists. "He does it on purpose. He's looking at me when he's saying this stuff."

"Yeah, that is weird," Stewart agrees.

"What is wrong with him? He's like, 'I don't even care about her, I just want to,' " Pattinson trails off.

"Look at him cradling!" Stewart points out, which provokes a burst of laughter from Pattinson. "His little head nooked in there," she adds.

"You look like you're milking him," Pattinson says as both "Twilight" actors break out laughing.

A terrific tease, and if that little sneak peek doesn't make you want to pre-order that DVD now, we don't know what will.

Breaking Dawn Honeymoon Rumors - False!

From Gossip Cop:

Whenever an outlet like OK! claims an “on-set exclusive,” we get a bit suspicious.

And if HollywoodLife picks it up, let’s just say it doesn’t exactly put those doubts to rest.

This week, the site hops on an OK! report alleging that Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart are “demanding” that producers “really push the envelope” with their Breaking Dawn sex scenes.

“They want to show tasteful but extremely sexually charged nudity,” claims an OK! “insider.” Another tabloid source says the scenes “will shock” fans when they hit the big screen, and OK! even suggests the scenes “might ruin the movie’s planned PG-13 rating.”

This is utter nonsense.

First of all, as Gossip Cop already reported, Stewart will not be naked on screen, despite rumors. Loose talk of nudity and graphic lovemaking have been linked to Breaking Dawn for weeks — and it’s simply not true.

The Twilight movies have wide appeal (as their box office power proves).

But part of the core audience is young women, many of whom are teenagers. Even beyond the fundamental fact that graphic sex isn’t in the script, producers have zero incentive to put out an R-rated product that could leave out some of the movie’s biggest fans.

So let’s put an end to these persistent, silly rumors.

Kenneth Cole to Design Bella's Wedding Gown?


To design or not to design. That is the question. We previously reported, that famed designer Zac Posen was to design Bella Swan’s wedding dress in the first part of the upcoming final Twilight Saga installment. Then Zac tweeted that he was not designing the gown after all. Now we have the wonderful and talented Mr. Kenneth Cole who may be next up to bat for the coveted position.

Famed fashion designer Kenneth Cole wants to see Kristen Stewart in a whole new look for Breaking Dawn. And if he has his way, Bella Swan may be vamped up to ward off bad vampires!

On Wednesday, November 10th, we talked to Kenneth at the grand opening of the Kenneth Cole Boutique at Santa Monica Place. “The dress would repel the less than desirable vampires,” the fashion icon tells “It can pick and choose. It’s a smart dress. And with that kind of dress you can make it sexy and engaging or intimidating. So it depends on how you choose to wear that black leather dress.”

So, the dress would scare off bad vampires and attract the nice ones?
Im kind of confused here. I love Kenneth Cole, but I don’t know what to make of this vision he has for Bella’s gown. And most of all…what does Alice have to say! We need this gown to stay true to the book. This is going to be a looong bumpy ride for us fans trying to sort out the rumors, the truths and the details.

New Moon and Eclipse Beat New Harry Potter Movie for Midnight Showing

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows
brought in $24 million for it midnight showing.

But it doesn’t set a midnight record. Eclipse and New Moon earned more.

Eclipse brought in $30 million and New Moon earned $26 million at midnight shows.

It will take another few days to see if New Moon can stay ahead of the new Harry Potter movie for it's opening weekend. New Moon earned an amazing $143 million its opening weekend. Harry Potter is expected to earn between $125 million and $135 million this weekend, according to Exhibitor Relations.

Who's Got the Wackier Fans - Twilight or Harry Potter

This is just funny, and frankly, a little bit scary....enjoy ~ LOL!

From EOnline:

Watch out, Eclipse, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 is already breaking box-office records.

It's true, we admire Harry Potter's creative superiority to the Twilight flicks (tho, it's the vamp stars we hold closest to our hearts), but we think it's time to really examine who really brings the crazy: Twi-hards or Potterheads.

Meet Anita, a (we can only assume) vampire bride who entered Moviefone's biggest Twilight fan contest...

Anita professes in the video above that Twilight is the reason for her existence and that she would take a bullet for any castmember. She adds it's not Robert Pattinson's hair or Taylor Lautner's chiseled mid-section that reel her in, but "the world they live in."

Please refer to the video in order to asses the girl, er, bride's level of obsession.

Now, Moviefone is also hosting a contest for the world's biggest Harry Potter fan.

While we think this worshiper equally brings the crazy (three rooms dedicated to H.P. for freaks-sake, and the guy can wear Harry Potter clothing for three months without wearing the same thing twice), the video is much more interestingly done (Just like the movies themselves).

Way clever or too much time on his hands?

You be the judge.

Zac Posen NOT Designing Bella's Wedding Dress

From TwiFans:

Designer Zac Posen spoke via his official Twitter page to address the Breaking Dawn wedding dress rumors. His response:

"Heard the bella/twilight rumor and it's just that. I design for real women..."

Well since he designed for fictional characters Miranda, Charlotte, and Samantha in the movie Sex and the City 2, what exactly does Zac mean with his statement!?

All three fictional women in a Zac Posen design.

Is he talking smack about Kristen's body? Is he calling her a girl or a tom boy? LUCY [Zac] you got some splaining to do!!!

Well Mr. Posen decided he needed to change his wonder why....and here is the NEW tweet.

Is someone trying to make TwiFans happy with his choices of REAL woman in the 2nd tweet. We think so...never underestimate Twilight love Mr.Posen.

Ashley: Working on Twilight is Like Going Back to High School

ETonline exclusively chats up Ashley Greene about sinking her teeth into 'The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, Part 1' and going on tour with her boyfriend, Joe Jonas.

The big screen's Alice Cullen tells us she'll probably start shooting her scenes for 'Breaking Dawn, Part 1' around the beginning of December, and she's already tackled fittings and rehearsals for the eagerly awaited flick, in theaters Nov. 18, 2011 (with 'Part 2' hitting theaters Nov. 16, 2012).

"It's going to be incredible. At this point we're so comfortable with each other, it's kind of like high school," Ashley says of working with her vampire and werewolf co-stars. "We go to summer camp and we get to come back and be with all our friends, so I'm excited."

But that's not all Ashley's fans are buzzing about. The 23-year-old beauty recently joined her boyfriend Joe Jonas on the road for a Jonas Brothers tour.

"I live for going to different cities all the time. That's part of my job that I love is being able to travel and see the world, so I'm enjoying my life right now," she says.

Adding to the excitement? Ashley's role as the new ambassador for the beauty and fashion boutique brand "mark."

"They have a very empowering message to young women that they can succeed and they can make their mark in the world… I was really drawn to their 'm.powerment by mark' program, which is dedicated to stopping the cycle of dating abuse and violence," she says.

Robert & Kristen Dare to Bare For Breaking Dawn


It seems like a Bonanza week for all Twilight fans! From liplocks to legs, the latest installment in the Twilight series has got it all.

Since it’s the Honeymoon segment of the movie, even the ultra-conservative Pattinson has reportedly shown skin. Stewart is also reportedly sporting some short numbers. Despite of there being extra security measures taken by director Bill Condon, sources from the sets have revealed that there is going to be lot of skin show and steamy scenes in the movie.

Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson have been shooting in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil for their upcoming movie, Breaking Dawn. They are filming the post Edward Cullen-Bella Swan wedding, Honeymoon scenes here.

The British star has always been deemed as a conservative gentleman. However to much delight of all Twilight fans, he will be seen adorning shorts in the movie. Last week itself, the two were shooting some scenes in a Rio street. The scene involved the two holding hands and sharing a passionate kiss.

The two stars have been speculated to be dating each-other. Rumors of the two being a couple have been doing the rounds ever since they made the first movie in the Twilight saga. Reports of them getting cozy on the sets of the movie have been doing the rounds too. Whether it's the romantic Brazil or is their love finally beginning to gain full bloom, as long as we get to see more of 'Rob-Sten' together, nobody's complaining!

Dakota Fanning Crowned Homecoming Queen!


Three cheers for Dakota Fanning!

The Breaking Dawn actress and high school senior took the homecoming queen title at her L.A.-area private school on Monday, proudly donning her sash and crown next to king Henry Aleck.

This isn't the 16-year-old's first turn on the football field—the cheerleader was crowned homecoming princess last year, too.

With all the Taylor Momsens and Demi Lovatos of the world, it's nice to see teenagers in Hollywood just being teenagers.

Breaking Dawn Sparks Riots in Rio - Geez!


Riots have occurred in Rio de Janeiro over the shooting of the next Twilight film.

The popular vampire movie franchise, which is adapted from the novels of Stephenie Meyer, will conclude in two instalments; Breaking Dawn - Part 1 and Part 2.

Shooting for the first instalment has been taking place in the Brazilian city of Rio de Janeiro, although according to reports local residents are fed up with the disruption and have decided to protest.

Scenes for the movie starring Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner are being filmed in the central Lapa district. It has been reported demonstrators set the crew's portable toilet alight because access to their homes is being restricted.

In August a shoot-out between criminals and police occurred in the hotel where crew were staying in the area, leading to tougher security precautions.

It has been suggested the film being shot in Rio will boost the city's economy by around $1 million.

Exciting News About Bella's Wedding Dress

Above: Twilight: Breaking Dawn: Zac Posen (worn here by Penelope Cruz) is apparently designing Bella Swan's

From OK Magazine:

WE spend an awful lot of our time fantasising about exactly how Twilight: Breaking Dawn will pan out on the big screen.

And one of things that is getting us ridiculously excited is Kristen Stewart's Twilight: Breaking Dawn wedding dress for the scene Bella Swan marries Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson of course).

Last month Kristen revealed she is having a tough time picking THE dress - but today we can at least reveal the designer who is rumoured to be making it.

According to reports Zac Posen whose gowns have been worn by many an A-lister (including Natalie Portman, Rihanna, Cameron Diaz, Jennifer Lopez, Mischa Barton and Beyoncé to name a few) is the chosen designer.

Bella's dress is described in the fourth novel as an early 1900s design that looks like it's just stepped out on a Jane Austen movie so we're imagining some SERIOUS corseting and SERIOUS volume in that skirt.

We know what Kristen is like about going for the girly look so we just can't WAIT to see what she looks like as a bride!

Former Summit Board Member Called Out For Misrepresenting The Twilight Saga

Nikki Finke from Deadline Hollywood has the scoop and the emails on this one. The long and short of it seems that there is a former Summit board member who is/was showing the movies to audiences at what were billed as charity screenings. At these screenings, actors associated with the franchise were solicited to appear. There were also set visits auctioned off without that were apparently without authorization.

According to Nikki Finke:

“Failure may be an orphan in Hollywood, but success has many fathers. I’ve learned that Summit Entertainment has sent a letter threatening legal action if this NYC-based businessman continues to “misrepresent that he’s involved in the ownership, management, decision-making, and operations” of Summit. Last time the studio warned him, he was claiming involvement with Summit’s New Moon and Breaking Dawn movies in the Twilight saga.”

See more details including the correspondence from the legal team and parties involved here.

It looks like the Summit legal team is pretty busy. Over the past year they have been/are currently involved in lawsuits stemming from people hacking into their photographer’s server and distributing unauthorized photos from Eclipse to stopping magazines from running photos for which they did not obtain the proper licensing.

Twilight Star Shares his Story of Struggle with Substance Abuse

From the University of Illinois - Daily Illini:

The University added a new member to its wolf pack this Thursday.

Star of the “Twilight” saga Chaske Spencer spoke about his battles with racism, alcohol and drugs at the Illini Union yesterday, sponsored by the Illini Union Board and the Native American House.

Spencer portrays Sam Uley in the Twilight series. Uley is the leader of the wolfpack, and the first of the Quilete tribe to make the human to werewolf transformation.

Born in Oklahoma, he didn’t move to a Native American reservation until later on in his childhood, where he didn’t make an immediate fit, he said.

“They teased me for being an apple. White on the inside, red on the outside, and I didn’t understand that,” Spencer said.

With a father for an alcoholic, he fell into a crowd of other youths from dysfunctional homes, he said.

“I’m talking dysfunction: There was mental abuse, physical abuse, sexual abuse. I thought that was normal for a long time, and it is on a reservation,” Spencer said.

In his teens he began drinking alcohol. He had a lot of anger inside, and the alcohol seemed to help him deal with that, he said.

“I took my first drink, and that one can, that’s what took everything away; all the pressures away,” Spencer said.

He moved off the reservation into a predominately white community during his later teens, where he experienced more racism.

To get over feeling like an outsider, he used alcohol as a social lubricant and got himself into a rough crowd. He would drink to the point of blacking out, and often didn’t know how he got home.

After high school, Spencer went to a semester of college, but then dropped out and moved to New York to pursue an acting career, where he continued to drink excessively.

He was still able to perform on set somehow, he said. But that all changed when he started using drugs.

“Things didn’t start going downhill until my 20s, when I had my first experience with heroin,” Spencer said.

A girl he was dating at the time got him into it, and he was hooked right away. He would even go to auditions high, he said.

Though his girlfriend got him started, she couldn’t stick around when his heroin use became an addiction.

“I lost my apartment, I lost the girl, I lost my career,” Spencer said. “Next thing I know, I was broke.”

He had to leave his luxurious $3,000-per-month apartment to move to a small dirty place in eastern Brooklyn.

“I just woke up and I had enough,” Spencer said. “The other option is death.”

After checking into rehab, Spencer turned a complete 180 degrees. In rehab they showed him a video of Native Americans and alcohol, where he realized what a struggle alcoholism was for his people. He said much of the reason is because of their displacement.

After becoming sober and checking out, he did everything in his power to stay on that path.

He was on the verge of giving up acting when his agent called him and asked him to audition for “New Moon,” the sequel to “Twilight.”

Spencer had heard of “Twilight,” but didn’t really know what it was.

“I literally had maybe $30 to my name at the point,” Spencer said.

He got the part. Spencer is still sober.

He has used his starpower to start the organization Shift the Power, which puts spotlight on the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe. Thirteen thousand of these people are without power, heat and water due to their water infrastructure.

“It was one of the worst catastrohpes since Katrina, but the mainstream media didn’t pick it up,” he said.

Denise Poindexter, program adviser with the Illini Union Board, said her favorite part of Spencer’s speech was “the fact that he was open and honest about his past.”

Vaneitta Goines, program advisor for the Office of Volunteer programs, said Spencer’s speech could inspire students dealing wih similar issues.

“Even at this event we had a couple of students that asked questions about how to help their friends who are struggling with alcoholism or addiction,” she said.

Anne Rice Calls "Twilight Saga" a "Failure of the Imagination"


Oh snap! The grand dame of vampire literature, Anne Rice, had some not-so-nice things to say about Stephenie Meyer's "Twilight Saga" universe in a recent interview with New Jersey's The Star-Ledger while promoting her new novel "Of Love and Evil." We're wondering if this will spark a verbal smack-down in the bloodsucking book world!

"['Twilight']’s based on a really silly premise: that immortals would go to high school. It's a failure of imagination, but at the same time, that silly premise has provided Stephenie Meyer with huge success," Anne said. "The idea that if you are immortal you would go to high school instead of Katmandu or Paris or Venice, it’s the vampire dumbed down for kids. But it's worked. It's successful. It makes kids really happy."

It's not too surprising that Anne had less-than-sweet nothings to whisper about the series that has made vampires the hottest supernatural property around and virtually diluted a genre that had been a sophisticated cultural metaphor. Still, wow, those are some pretty harsh words towards Stephenie! Anne did add that "it's almost like a stroke of genius to put vampires in high school," but that still sounds a bit derogatory to us.

When speaking about how she always viewed the vampire, Anne said, "I always thought of the vampire as being a metaphor for the outsider in each of us, the criminal, the predator. I was writing about a mythical being that represented our own dark sides." She added, "Part of the mystery of being a human being is that mixture of the spiritual and the animalian. We have the capacity to murder, but also the capacity to love and respond and be tender to those in need."

Anne was sure to emphasize that, despite the range of vampires presented in pop culture since she released "Interview With the Vampire" in 1976—from "The Twilight Saga" to "True Blood" and "The Vampire Diaries"—they are still fictional characters. "They’re fantasy characters, and we have to keep reminding ourselves of this. They don’t exist," she said. "I get e-mails from people who are outraged that I watch 'True Blood.' They say, 'How can you condone the evil of "True Blood."' I say, 'Are you kidding? Vampires aren’t real. Keep that in mind.'"

Are you surprised Anne Rice attacked Stephenie Meyer so harshly? Do you agree with what she said about the vampire genre?

Robert's Breaking Dawn Halloween Party


There could be some spooky goings on on the Breaking Dawn set this weekend! Vampire heartthrob Robert Pattinson is pulling out all the stops to plan an extravagant Twilight Halloween party, according to reports.

The generous star will be treating cast and crew to a whole host of creepy delights, and has even splashed out on a costume designer to make them look their scary best.

‘Rob's organizing a huge soiree to celebrate Halloween,’ one insider told Perez Hilton. ‘He thinks it is going to be hilarious for them all to dress up in scary costumes.’

‘The crew are huge fans of Rob and are really looking forward to it. Rob knows how much they all love Halloween so has really gone to town.’

‘He's asked a couple of costume designers he knows to make special ghoul costumes for his guests.’

We wonder who will go as Edward Cullen?!
