Rob & Ashley's Promotional Appearance In Brussels


From HollywoodCrush.MTV.com:

The Twilight Saga" tour of Europe continues! After attending the "Breaking Dawn" premiere in gay Paree earlier this week, Ashley Greene and Robert Pattinson kept on country-hopping, this time skipping next door for another premiere event in Brussels, Belgium.

This Euro-tour kicks off the countdown to the big, exciting world premiere in Los Angeles on November 14—but despite the roughly five bajillion promotional appearances and pre-screenings on their schedule, Rob and Ashley don't appear to be showing any fatigue just yet! The pair posed on the red carpet before heading inside for a screening, with Ashley looking perfectly polished in her glittering gold L’Wren Scott dress. And Rob...well, okay, he's looking a little scruffy—again—sporting his now-signature beard and several inches of exposed chest. Been hitting the Belgian waffles and chocolate too hard, Rob? Or are you just refusing to bring your A-game as ladylove Kristen Stewart is still absent due to filming conflicts?

Kristen Calls Taylor a "Puppy"


From Celebs.Gather.com:

Kristen Stewart obviously doesn't see Taylor Lautner as a sex symbol. (Probably because she's got Robert Pattinson as a boyfriend!) The Twilight actress recently refered to her co-star as a "puppy."

Kristen Stewart compared Taylor Lautner to a playful animal, because of his antics on set. "He's literally like a puppy. There is a lot of downtime on set. I'd throw food in his mouth," she said.

"Taylor is like one of those wind-up toys. You put 20 cents in, and he runs around. Then he crashes. At lunch, he has a Red Bull, and he's back up. When I hear him talk about girls it's like, Awww," KStew said.

It seems that Kristen and Taylor have a brother and sister type relationship. While many young women around the world see Lautner as one of the hottest hunks in Hollywood, KStew is seemingly in the friend zone with the Abduction star.

Thankfully, Kristen Stewart isn't stuck in a real-life love triangle with Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner. It seems they leave that drama on-screen for Bella, Edward, and Jacob to deal with.

Twilight Time Capsule Launches Online


From MTV.com:

Want one place where all your "Twilight" memories can live? Well, Summit Entertainment has launched the "Twilight" time capsule as the go-to destination for all things Bella, Edward and Jacob.

The launch comes a month before "Breaking Dawn - Part 1" hits theaters on November 18. The time capsule is an interactive online community where fans can relive all the great moments from the Stephenie Meyer-penned franchise.

According to a press release posted on The Hollywood Reporter, the site is a place where "fans can commemorate and share content with each other, and relive any moment in 'Twilight Saga' film history."

Fans can generate their own user content for the site, as well as view a timeline that includes memories and trailers from the releases. "The 'Twilight' time capsule brings them all together in one place for all fans to enjoy together," "Twilight" star Nikki Reed said in a video about the site. "Now you can commemorate your personal memories forever and become a part of 'Twilight Saga' history."

This isn't the only way to get caught up on all things "Twilight." There will also be "Twilight" re-release events kicking off in November. The re-releases begin November 1 with the first flick in the franchise, 2008's "Twilight." "Twilight Saga: New Moon" (2009) will open on November 8, and last year's "Eclipse" opens the following week on November 15. Ticket information and a complete list of theaters hosting the events can be found at the Fathom events website.

It's not over just yet, however. The last "Twilight" flick, "Breaking Dawn - Part 2," directed by Bill Condon, hits theaters on November 16, 2012.

Twilight Films to Hit Theaters Prior to Breaking Dawn


From MTV.com:

It appears that "Twilight Tuesdays" are back. It was announced that Summit will re-release the first three "Twilight Saga" films on Tuesdays in November, leading up to the release of "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1" on November 18.

The theater events will kick off on November 1 with the first flick in the franchise, 2008's "Twilight." "Twilight Saga: New Moon" (2009) will open on November 8, and last year's "Eclipse" opens the following week on November 15.

Each showing will take place at 7:30 p.m. local time, and the films have been updated to include cast introductions and interviews as well as behind-the-scenes content. Ticket information and a complete list of theaters hosting the events can be found at the Fathom events website.

Anticipation for the first of two "Breaking Dawn" films is at a fever pitch, with fans yearning to see Edward and Bella finally tie the knot. The newlyweds' honeymoon and all the drama surrounding Bella's pregnancy will also be addressed in part 1.

"I've seen it a few times," Taylor Lautner told MTV News about the film. "I saw it for the first time while we were still filming, so it was a really rough cut, but I've seen several versions since then, and it's getting better and better."

"You are going to face a lot of emotions, definitely," he further teased about the Bill Condon-directed flick. "You are going to be angry. I guarantee you [that] you will cry multiple times. There's a good mix. It's definitely different than any of the ones before."

Of course, this is hardly the end for Twilighters. The second "Breaking Dawn" film opens on November 16, 2012.

Nikki & Paul Gush About Their Upcoming Wedding


From OKMagazine.com:

Happier than ever, Twilight’s Nikki Reed and American Idol alum Paul McDonald gushed about their upcoming wedding and how life has been as an engaged couple while out in L.A. last night.

“It’ll be small,” Nikki told reporters of her plans for the big day at Ubisoft’s Just Dance 3 Party on Tuesday, although she didn’t want to give away too much about her dress because, “I haven’t told Paul anything! He is super traditional and wants to be surprised and all of that.”

As for Paul serenading his soon-to-be wife at the ceremony – “I have a handful of songs, I may bust out one or two,” the 27-year-old explained.

Even former AI contestant and one of judge Jennifer Lopez’s favorites Stefano Langone wants in on the wedding action!

“I am singing at the wedding!” he joked to OK! at the fete and added his 2 cents on why the duo work as a couple, “They are complete opposites and opposites attract! And, I love them both. They are hilarious.”

After recently finishing the American Idol tour, where devoted fiancĂ©e Nikki came along and took, “Twenty-five flights total in just over fifty days,” to be with Paul, the adorable pair are enjoying romantic down time together before their nuptials.

“I’m always trying to step up the romantic game,” Paul gushed at the Beverly, “I’m not quite the best romantic guy, so I’m always trying to do that. Last night we went out to Topanga Canyon, got some dinner out there, and it was a cool spot, had a really good vibe.”

But, the burning question still remains. Will Nikki’s cast mates Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart be on the upcoming wedding guest list?

Best "Twilight" Saga Scenes


From Gael Fashingbauer Cooper, TODAY.com's movies editor.

Need to brush up on your "Twilight" saga vampire romance before "Breaking Dawn" comes out on Nov. 18?

You can now do just that, big-screen style. Summit Entertainment has announced that it will re-release "Twilight," "New Moon" and "Eclipse" in theaters in the weeks leading up to "Dawn's" premiere. Check your local theaters for exact schedules, but the "Twilight" screenings will start Nov. 1, "New Moon" on Nov. 8, and "Eclipse" on Nov. 15.

To stir your "Twilight" blood further, here are our favorite scenes from each of the films.

'Twilight'
The prom, maybe? Are you kidding? VAMPIRE BASEBALL! They even have old-fashioned uniforms and striped socks, and they can play only in thunderstorms because the thunder hides the incredibly loud noise generated when they hit the ball at approximately eight jillion miles per hour. And once the Cullens suit up to toss the ol' horsehide around, whoops, three uninvited vamps show up and start gunning for Bella. But in the meantime, VAMPIRE BASEBALL!

'New Moon' Oh, the Volturi. Forget Bella and Edward and Jacob. I would read an entire series of books just about them. Anyway, Edward thinks Bella is dead so he goes to Volterra, Italy, to reveal himself as a vampire in public, knowing the regal Volturi vamps will have to kill him then. So in the middle of an Italian square full of red-robed extras, he de-shirts, and Bella races across the square just in the nick of time to save him. Team Volturi!

'Eclipse' At long last, Jacob gets a little lovin'. Long story short: Bella is freezing and Edward can't warm her since he's a vampire and is icy cold all the time. So she gets in a tent and snuggles with a shirtless, hunky Jacob. Then while she sleeps, the boys have a taunt-off. It's deliciously sixth grade, and Taylor Lautner looks really good without a shirt.

What are your favorite scenes?

Robert is Glamour UK's Sexiest Man Alive!!


From PerezHilton.com:

Who run the world? R-Patz!

The people have spoken and according to the Twi-Hards who rule the Internet, which includes Glamour UK's poll to find the sexiest man alive, Robert Pattinson has been awarded the title for the second year in a row.

The mag doesn't seem too surprised by this - nor are we - explaining:

“So for the second time on the spot, R-Patz is crowned your sexiest man on the planet. He’s wrestled the top spot from his co-star and — votes combined — proves the love among the Twi-hards is still strong. And that’s only set to intensify when Breaking Dawn hits cinema screens next month. Yes. you’ll once again get to ogle Edward in all his brooding, marble-skinned glory! Oh and we finally get to see the big sex scene. Team Edward, prepare to lose your shiz!”

Prepare? Girl, their shiz was lost three years ago and has yet to be regained!

We can feel it in the air. This is only the beginning. Some might call the coming season autum, but we know better.

It's Twi-Fall!!! How many days till Breaking Dawn?

Kristen Calls Robert "My Boyfriend" For The First Time


From Hollywoodlife.com:

In one of the most revealing interviews she’s ever given, Kristen Stewart calls Rob her English boyfriend! Plus, she talks about having babies and getting married!

For nearly three years, we’ve watched Kristen Stewart‘s every move, using it as evidence she’s actually dating her Twilight co-star, Robert Pattinson. Now, in the British GQ, the 21-year-old actress accidentally slipped on the one secret she held near and dear: her relationship with the English actor.
While discussing her time in the UK, Kristen said she was excited to see more of the country because “my boyfriend is English.”

However, when the interviewer pushed her to elaborate, she got frustrated.

“I never would have said that if I knew you were going to be interviewing me,” she said. “Yeah, I know it is. So much of my life is so easily Googled. I mean, it’s like, ‘C’mon guys. It’s so obvious.”

She added, “But this subject, I don’t think you realize what a big deal it is for people. Well, it is a big deal. And right now, even me talking about it like this is a big deal..... There would also still be a 50/50 split. Some people would still be, ‘See, told you they’re not together.’”

Kristen went on to explain her rationale behind trying to keep her relationship with Rob private.

“I don’t worry about it at all,” she admitted. “It’s just one of those things. I’m selfish. I’m like, ‘That’s mine!’ And I like to keep whatever is mine remaining that way. It’s a funny little game to play and it’s a slippery slope. I always say to myself I’m never going to give anything away because there’s never any point or benefit for me.”

She continued, “I guarantee whenever I get married or have a baby, everyone is going to want to know my kid’s name and I’m not going to say it for ages. That’s just the way I want to do it. It’ll come out but it won’t have come from me. They’re going to be really p***ed off that I won’t say it and I’m going to say, ‘No!’ I also have that desire to blurt stuff out, but I’ve learned I can’t do that. Now when you realize the whole world is listening. That’s why perhaps I look so uncomfortable in interviews at times. I mean, we’ve talked about hiding things and I’ve had to get much more adept at that, sadly. But I’m glad I’m not one of those actresses who is just so ready to open up for everyone.”

We’re still shocked Kristen even said that much! Normally shy in interviews, she sure opened up…

The Joy Formidable Surprised by Spot on Breaking Dawn Soundtrack


From MTV.com:

There are some bands prepared for the increased attention that a spot on a "Twilight" soundtrack brings. And then there are bands like voluminous rockers the Joy Formidable who, despite snagging the opening slot on the upcoming "Breaking Dawn" soundtrack, remain blissfully unaware of everything to come. Or, really, everything about the "Twilight" series, for that matter.

"I can't say I've ever read one. I haven't seen the films either, but I have heard the soundtracks, and I was familiar with some of the songs, you know, Metric and the Black Keys," frontwoman Ritzy Bryan told MTV News. "So I was more aware of the musical side of 'Twilight' than I was the books or the movies. Actually, I know very little [about the books]. I know they're about vampires, and I know they've connected very much with an audience ... so they're obviously much enjoyed by a lot of people."

And yet, despite all that, their contribution to the "Breaking Dawn" soundtrack — a ringing, downright desperate song called "Endtapes" that will be the album's lead-off track — fits seamlessly; mostly because, as Bryan explained, it is very much about the themes that remain central to the "Twilight" series.

"The song was written at the same time as our album, and because of that, it has a lot of the tone and the feel of the album. And those songs, there's a lot of turbulence going on, and it definitely chronicles a year that was very turbulent on one hand, but you know, it's me trying to push for that hope and that sense of optimism," she said. "It's a song that captures that spirit. It's a song about the frustration of not being able to have closure on a difficult situation."

And given that, unlike fellow "Breaking Dawn" artist Christina Perri, she's basically oblivious to the entire "Twilight" phenomenon, Bryan has no idea where "Endtapes" will be used in the upcoming "Breaking Dawn" film ... shoot, she's not even sure she and her bandmates will get invited to the premiere. That doesn't mean they wouldn't go, of course.

"I don't know anything about that! If we get an invite, I wouldn't mind going to the cinema. I haven't been to the cinema for such a long time," she laughed. "We've been perpetually on the road for about a year and a half, and we watch lots and lots of DVDs in our van, but a trip to the cinema would be wonderful. I would have to do some laundry, but that would be fine!"

Dakota is Picking Clothes for College


Dakota Fanning just celebrated her move from Los Angeles to New York at her first Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, but the star is busy tackling an even bigger milestone now: starting her freshman year at NYU.

“Going to college is a bit different than going back to high school,” the new student told PEOPLE recently at a Marc Jacobs bash. “You can kind of wear whatever you want, and I had a uniform in high school.”

But don’t think you’ll catch Dakota, who’s living in a Manhattan apartment instead of the dorms, taking on sloppy student style. “If you ever catch me in sweatpants in class, that’s not good,” joked the star. “I’ve tried not to dress like that.”

However, the Los Angeles native did come prepared for the East Coast temperature changes — sans sweatpants. “I knew to bring a lot of coats, and my Hunter rain boots,” she shared. Still, Fanning admitted that shopping for school is intimidating. For instance, “What pencil case do you buy for college?” she asked.

Fanning might have a little help in the wardrobe department courtesy of her pal Marc Jacobs. The actress — a muse for his line (as is her sister) — serves as the face of his latest fragrance, Oh, Lola! “It’s been such an honor to work with someone who you admire and actually love wearing their clothes and love their brand,” she said. “I think Marc is such a genius and so creative, and I think he proves time and time again that he can do anything. To be involved in anything he touches is a pleasure.”

Though the Oh, Lola! campaign stirred a bit of controversy thanks to its provocative imagery, Fanning said she had a blast during the photo shoot. “It was amazing,” she told reporters at a recent Oh, Lola! event in N.Y.C. “Getting to work with Juergen [Teller] again, it’s always so much fun.”

And she definitely had faith in her crew — and the designer. Fanning showed up to set without having seen the bottle, and unaware of the scent’s smell. “I got there … and it was exactly what I love, and it’s pink — which is my favorite color,” she shared. “So it couldn’t have been more perfect for me.”

Jackson Thanks Twilight Facebook Fans

From Zimbio.com:

While Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart are off shooting their wedding scenes for the next Twilight installment, Breaking Dawn, co-star Jackson Rathbone took to Youtube to thank fans of the novel and film franchise for pushing 'The Twilight Saga' Facebook page past 25 million likes.

That's right; the Twilight Facebook fan page has crossed the 25 million mark, and since Rathbone's Youtube message of gratitude, the page has jumped another 21,000. To give you a little perspective on just how big that number is, there are more people who "like" the Twilight page than there are living in the state (not just city) of New York. If every Facebook fan sees Breaking Dawn on opening weekend at $10 a ticket, the film will set the box office record, topping the other fantasy franchise giant, Harry Potter, by almost $100 million. No wonder Rathbone took the time to give a shout out to the fans.

There's no telling how many more millions of people will join the party before Breaking Dawn hits theaters November 18th. For now, check out Jackson Rathbone (in full Jasper make-up and constuming) giving a much deserved thanks to Twilight's hardcore fanbase.
