Peter Facinelli Outlasts the Rest of the Cast

Peter interview with People Magazine.

What he had to say:
"I love night shoots. Everybody else is [tired] by like two, three in the morning, which is weird because I'm the old guy!" Facinelli tells PEOPLE at the Los Angeles premiere of Ghosts of Girlfriends Past on Monday night. "They should be the ones that should be like party hardy all night long," jokes the 35-year-old of his young costars including Robert Pattinson, 22, Kristen Stewart, 19, and 17-year-old Taylor Lautner. "At five in the morning I was like, 'I could go another 10 hours!' And they were like, 'Crash!' " "The first [film] we were just hoping people went to see it. We knew there were diehard fans and those are the ones we're like, 'Let's make a good movie for [them],' but we didn't know the diehard fans were going to explode into the amount that they did," he says. But the father of three insists he's nothing but grateful for the fan-demonium. "I feel loved by so many fans, like I went to Disneyland the other day, and I took like 100 pictures just walking like 10 feet … you want to give back to them."
He goes on to talk about boob grabbing - so go read the rest :p

Cameron Bright Interview

Another Cameron interview - this time by The Vancouver Sun.
He talks about being dragged to see Twilight and about his fans and all the attention he's been getting from the ladies...
"All the guys were saying, 'It's a chick movie,' but it was really good,"... "I'm glad to be a part of it."
"I say 'no' right away, because when they walk up to me I can sense what they're going to say," ... " 'Can you get me Robert Pattinson's autograph?' "
"My fans make me, and if I didn't respect them I wouldn't be here,"

Fandango Interview with RPattz

Rob is interviewed by Scott Huver from Fandango. Here's a small bit of the hilarious interview:
"Fandango: DalĂ­ was a famed surrealist and no doubt you’ve had your share of surreal experiences in the last few months – like fans screaming over cardboard cutouts of you at the video store.

Pattinson: I know! I was in a Blockbuster on the day it was being released. I had forgotten it was being released that day. There were two families who had come with eight- or nine-year old-daughters to get their DVD. They were standing in the line crying and I stood watching what all this commotion was about. They didn’t know I was there or anything. I was just thinking “Wow, you’re crying about a DVD.” It’s fascinating.

Fandango: And you never revealed yourself to them?
Pattinson: No way! [laughs]

Fandango: Do you and your castmates try to top each other with the wild post-fame encounters you’ve had?
Pattinson: In a lot of ways they are all quite similar. The funny thing is that I’m always going around trying to look as inconspicuous as possible I find that people are always really disappointed when they actually recognize me. They are like ‘”Oh! At first I thought you were a bum but then I realized who you were.”

haha, a I'm sorry he does look like a bum sometimes. An adorably cute bum =P

Blonde Baby Rob

[thanks My Twilight Saga Blog]

awww how adorable! why are people talking all this cute couple/baby stuff all of a sudden - must be cause we're twiddling our thumbs waiting for New Moon to finally arrive!!

Rob and Kristen on the Cover of Girlfriend

Yes, they're on the cover of the June edition of Australian Girlfriend magazine. Damn we only get the NZ version here. If anyone is able to get their hands on a copy - mind telling me what's in it? perhaps some scans? :p

Jackson on Inked

Inked Magazine interviewed Jackson Rathbone recently about tattoos,shenanigans and Twilight.
When asked about tattoos:
"I only have one right now, but I definitely plan on getting more. My friends and I were kind of the bad kids in school, the troublemakers. We went to Interlochen Arts Academy, this really great boarding school in Michigan, and there were six of us who were always acting out against authority. The school administration was like, "Stay away from those boys-they're ‘Lost Boys,'" so that's what everyone called us. When I was 18, I got a tattoo that says, "I'm lost."
Remember the prohibition era? It was kind of like that.
on the Twilight sequel:
Wait, there's another one? [Laughs.] Just kidding. Yes, I'm on board. I actually go up to Toronto to start training in a few days.
So adorable lol.

Twilight Lexicon in Vancouver!

I'm sure I don't need to tell you guys to keep your eyes peeled for news from the Twilight Lexicon!
They're in Vancouver! Lucky guys and gals! I'm sooo jealous. I know I will be checking their sites regularly; I just know they'll have some fantastic coverage for us ;)
Also why not send in a question - who knows they may get to ask it!

- I'm telling you, as with the Twilight Lexicon, I too do not condone the "marry me" question. So please, don't embarrass the rest of the Twilight nation by asking!

Rob Lands Lead Role In Remember Me

MTV is reporting that Rob has landed the lead role in the upcoming movie Remember Me.
"While Robert Pattinson is deep into filming the "Twilight" sequel "New Moon" for Summit Entertainment, the studio has tapped the 22-year-old British star for another project about star-crossed lovers.

Pattinson will play the lead role in "Remember Me," a story of a young couple whose burgeoning relationship is complicated by a succession of family tragedies that test their bond, according to The makers of the film, which had previously been titled "Memoirs," have not yet settled on which actress who will play Pattinson's love interest"

Sounds like the making of a great movie - I'm interested.

Thanks to Courta who mentioned this earlier and which I did not post LOL - my bad =p

Rob greets fans in Norway

Rob makes a video message for Norwegian Twilight fans from the set of New Moon. Think it was for the Twilight DVD release party? - Anyway, what a horrible video LOL so un-Rob like! he's just reading off cards! and he doesn't even laugh. It's not Rob if he doesn't even laugh. Or smile for that fact!

[thanks NewMoonMovie]

Kellan and Edi do the Nutbush!

LOL I have no idea what the Nutbush is...but it looks like a dance the Australian's do? Edi looks like he has mastered it better than Kellan haha. Would've been awesome to attend the Prom!

Channing Tatum in Eclipse?

Hell yeah! okay it's not even up for discussion as far as the big bosses are concerned. But Melissa Rosenberg made a suggestion in an intervew with E!'s Mark Malkin -
“There’s a very big battle at the end with Riley, and I think Channing would do that so well…And there are some complexities to that character,” she adds. He really is tragic. He’s a puppet for Victoria. So he has to break your heart a little bit at the end when he realizes that she doesn’t want him. Channing could do that beautifully.”
And she talks Edward in New Moon -
“In the book, he’s actually an enormous presence in [Bella’s] mind,” Rosenberg said. “He’s so present in her mind throughout the entire center of the book, so we really played off that, and it kept him alive in a slightly different way, but fans will feel it’s true to the book. You can’t have a Twilight without Rob Pattinson.”
I'd like a piece of Channing Tatum in the Twilight Saga ;)

Kristen and Michael Angarano Go Out to Play

It really does seem like couples day today, doesn't it?
While I really should be doing my computer science website mark up lab, I'm on here blogging. *laughs sadly* ah well - that's next on my to do list!xx

Lainey Gossip has pictures and reports:
"Michael is back in town, seen with Kristen on Saturday. Looks like Kristen is breaking the rules. Good.

But she got caught.

They went for sushi, she playfully hopped on his back, then when she realised she was being papped, she quickly jumped off. The two continued on their way all awkward and sh-t. She looks great, right? Very pretty, beautiful skin. Happy.

Am told exclusively that they spent a romantic weekend together – Michael arranged for accommodation at a different hotel, with an open ocean view, and they were able to escape for a day from the crowds waiting outside all the time."
How cute. what's with all this cuteness?
But I'm really glad she's happy, she deserves to be after all this Twilight happiness we get off here =)

Taylor and Selena?

alrighty-o...I realy wan't going to post it cause lets face it Taylor's love life is none of our business...I'm sorry even saying that, I can't help but care =P
Since Lainey Gossip's peeps have snapped Taylor and Selena together twice now, I think I'll post!

This cuteness… it’s killing me.

I was the first to tell you about Taylor Lautner and Selena Gomez last week – now more exclusive details about their adorable weekend date.

Saturday night: they had dinner at the Cactus Club in Coquitlam, emerged in great spirits, both with big smiles on their faces, Selena held on to Taylor’s arm. At one point, after they had become separated and she fell behind to sign autographs, she ran back up to join him, throwing her arms around his neck, both bursting into giggles.

I'm wondering what everyone else thinks? They do make a cute couple. They have the same big smile - I don't know if it's a good or bad thing *raises eyebrow*
Taylor has definitely come a long way...that's for sure!

Cameron Bright Interview

There's a pretty awesome interview Nanaimo Daily News has with Cameron Bright. I just wanted to post this so we could all get a feel for this actor that has just newly joined our Twilight world. He seems like a pretty humble and grounded guy. Which is fantastic in my books =)

Here's a preview:
"Cameron Bright said his friends and family on Vancouver Island ``don't care'' about his celebrity status even after he landed a role in the teen blockbuster Twilight.

The 16-year-old Nanaimo actor will play the vampire brother of Dakota Fanning's character in the next three sequels of the popular movie.

Although Bright has acted alongside Hollywood stars such as Robert DeNiro and Nicole Kidman, this role could catapult him to a whole new level of fame. So-called Twi-hards, dedicated fans of the series by author Stephenie Meyer, are already keeping blogs updated with chatter about Bright and other stars in the movie.

But Bright said living on Vancouver Island has helped keep him grounded.

``If I didn't live here, I think I would probably be that stereotypical actor. In Hollywood, everyone wants to be an actor and just flaunt it,'' he said. ``Here, they just don't care.''

Twilight actor says Vancouver Island upbringing keeps him grounded

Independent Interview With Rob

Sleepy - last post of the night/first post of the morning....

The Independent have an interview with Rob Pattinson about his film Little Ashes. Here's a snippet:

According to Pattinson, he sees playing Dali as a turning point in his career. "To not betray or insult someone's memory, it seemed a lot more important than other jobs I've done before," he says. "I definitely felt I had a lot of freedom when I was doing for various reasons." Still, how does he think the Twilight fans will react to his love scenes with Beltran? "I think girls" – at this point he can't stop himself from a smutty chortle – "almost really like watching something like that. From what I've read, people really get excited about that – it sounds really sexy!"

Inevitably, since Twilight came out, speculation has surrounded Pattinson's own love-life, linking him with numerous starlets, including 10,000 BC's Camilla Belle. "I don't really care about it," he shrugs. "I have the same little set of friends and I don't have anyone who would really get affected adversely [by false rumours]. Every single person who they sort of romantically link me to... I just don't even really know anyone. So it doesn't really affect me that much." Is there any truth to the persistent rumour hooking him up with Twilight co-star Kristen Stewart? "Er, no," he states. "I don't understand where that even comes from."

Certainly, when Pattinson tells you that things haven't "really changed so much in my head" since Twilight came out, you can believe him. Willing to please, he carries the bewildered air of someone who still can't quite believe what has happened to him. Yet it'd be unfair to dub him "lucky", for his is not simply a case of 'right place, right time'. When he was 17, he decided against going to university – not that he got accepted to any, mind – to carry on with his acting. He immediately won a bit part in Mira Nair's Vanity Fair, followed by a more substantial role in Ring of the Nibelungs, a TV film inspired by Wagner's Ring cycle.

Raised with two older sisters, who, he has previously admitted, used to dress him up as a girl and call him Claudia up until he was 12, Pattinson's upbringing sounds comfortable. His father, Richard, deals cars and his mother, Clare, used to work in a model agency. It was his father who suggested Pattinson get involved with amateur productions at Barnes Theatre Company. "That was only because he saw a bunch of pretty girls who were going to it, and said: 'Hey Rob, you've got to go to that.' That's the reason I still do it!"

Pattinson knows that the female attention will not diminish with the Christmas 2009 release of Twilight sequel New Moon. He's pleased it doesn't feel like a mere money-spinner. "It feels like we're making a stand-alone movie." He's even at ease that his life is going to be turned upside down once again, having accepted how impossible it is to control his public image. "You can never be known for what you want to be known for," he notes. "People will know you for whatever they want to know you for." For a 22-year-old, that's surprisingly perceptive.

I'm glad he has finally realised Twilight for what it is and is actually riding it rather than letting it get to him.

And boy is it goooood =)

Chaske Spencer and Graham Greene in Vantown

Chaske and Graham were spotted in Vancouver by Lainey Gossip's people

According to Lainey, they were filming the break up and post break up scene where Bella wonders after Edward on her own, breaks down and then Sam carries her out of the forest.

MTV's Take on David Slade

MTV's Larry Carroll has his say on David Slade as Eclipse director...
I’ve interviewed David Slade before, and he’s a very smart, charismatic guy who harnesses some immense filmmaking tools. That said, I definitely thought “30 Days of Night” was a disappointment. It had a lot of fatal flaws in it, usually whenever the blood would stop flowing and it was time for us to actually start caring about the characters. “Hard Candy” also flirted with moments of brilliance, but I still feel like Slade’s best work is ahead of him.

What I am beginning to enjoy, however, is Summit’s decision to hire a different director for each film. Which is surprising, because I was definitely hoping that Catherine Hardwicke would oversee the entire series after the first “Twilight” became such a big hit. But if you’re a movie buff (and not just a Twilighter first and foremost), this is developing into a very interesting cinematic experiment.

And whereas Weitz seems likely to try and play things closer to Hardwicke’s blueprint, Slade is the kind of proudly defiant filmmaker who will want to shake things up a bit. For better or worse, the end result is going to be a trilogy of films filtered through three very different lenses.

Will Slade depict his vampires more violently than Stephenie Meyer imagined in the novels? Will he give such thespian-minded stars as Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart the opportunity to dig deeper into the sadistic nature of Edward and Bella’s romance – or will his thirst for boy-friendly action push the film too far in the other direction? Most importantly: Does this mean that Josh Hartnett is gonna play Seth Clearwater?

Josh Hartnett as Seth? I wouldn't go that far :p

Kellan and Edi in Australia

Stars of vampire film Twilight to be in Geelong

Kellan Lutz and Edi Gathegi, who both play vampires in the
film, will make an appearance at Geelong's Gifts for the Geek store on Sunday.
The pair are in Australia for a Twilight convention tour.
Gifts for the Geek
is expecting 300 screaming girls at the Ryrie St store.

Shop owners said
they saw a lot of "disappointed girls" who could not get tickets to the
convention and they wanted to do something about it.

"There's a good fan
base in Geelong," organiser Darren Parker said.

Lutz and Gathegi will be
signing autographs from 2.304pm.

The session will allow for a quick meet
and greet.

Afterwards, a screening of the movie will be held at Village
Cinemas in Ryrie St.

Twilight merchandise has been flying off the
shelves at Gifts for the Geek.

"Twilight stuff has been the biggest
seller at our store in 12 years, and the Twilight umbrella has been our biggest
selling item of all time," Mr Parker said.
Geelong Advertiser

Note what I posted previously, it was meant to be Kellan Lutz and Ashley Greene to attend Twi-Prom but Ashley had to pull out due to filming commitments [Thanks Courta for the info :)]

It's "How To Be" Day!

Well it is on ROBsessed!
They've updated their site with all things How To Be.
Heaps of Pics. Heaps of info. Heaps of trailer clips.
go check it out!

Piece that caught me:

"We expect Robert Pattinson to push boundaries, try new things, challenge us"

Deep Thought of the Day

Back in 2001 Harry Potter
and the Sorcerer's Stone eked out a respectable billion dollars. Daniel
Radcliffe and the gang appeared on magazine covers and seemed set to take over
the world. And obviously they still could, as Emma Watson and Rupert Grint have
come along nicely as actors, and Radcliffe himself occasionally makes the news
for things that aren't particularly Potter-related.

However, right now
you'd have to say that Robert Pattinson has capitalized the most off of his
portrayal of Cedric Diggory, and he's not tied up in Potterland until 2011 like
the rest of the gang (spoiler!). Of course, he will be tied up with Twilight
until 2011, but he'll only have spent three years in the "Edward" shell as
opposed to the Potter Gang's decade. Additionally, he's now considered a sex
symbol, whereas Radcliffe is considered an icon. The difference? Audiences allow
their sex symbols to try new things (Brad Pitt, Justin Timberlake, Johnny Depp)
while icons are trapped into the character they originally became known for
(Macaulay Culkin, Mark-Paul Gosselaar, Soleil Moon Frye).

I think the
reason is psychological. We expect those considered "sexy" to push boundaries,
to try new things, to challenge us. From our icons we want safety, comfort, and
the knowledge that they are always exactly what we thought they were. Which
means Radcliffe will likely never escape the glasses-and-wand look in our heads.
All of this adds up to Robert Pattinson being uniquely positioned to dominate
the next decade of film. He'll be set up to take whatever parts he likes. It may
not work out, as occasionally sex symbols burn out (see: Rourke, Mickey) but
you'd love to be his agent right now. And with that meandering third person
omniscient reference I'll digress.

Radio Interview With Ashley

Fox 101.9 have a Radio Interview with Ashley Greene as the Twilight DVD is about to stores in Australia. She talks about Robert Pattinson, her earlier work and seems to hint at Eclipse and New Moon filming together. Ways you can listen to it:

Jackson on Nylon

I'm sorry, I don't know if I agree on the hair or not...
Nylon sat down with Jackson Rathbone to talk Twilight and music:
The Twilight actor
plays a song for us on piano. We like him.

His bandmates are old friends and actors as well, and
he shares a house in Hollywood with two of them. "We call it the Monkey
House," he jokes. "We all play all the instruments," he adds. "We
call it the Monkey Switcharoo."When asked about working with his Twilight
castmates, he praises their talent, then adds, "Kristen and Rob are both very
musically inclined, so we would have jam sessions. It was like the Cullen
Family Band."

David Slade to Direct Eclipse

Summt Entertainment have just released a press release naming David Slade at the director to film Eclipse.
Filmmaker Slade came to prominence as a director for his
work on 2006's engrossing film HARD CANDY starring Academy Award® Nominated
actress Ellen Page as well as directing 2007's genre hit 30 DAYS OF NIGHT which
opened to number one at the box office its first weekend of release.

Meyer stated, "I am thrilled that David Slade will be
directing ECLIPSE. He's a visionary filmmaker who has so much to offer this
franchise. From the beginning, we've been blessed with wonderful directorial
talent for the Twilight Saga, and I'm so happy that ECLIPSE will be carrying on
with that tradition."Feig said, "Stephenie Meyer's ECLIPSE is a muscular, rich,
vivid book and we at Summit looked long and hard for a director who could do it
justice. We believe we have found that talent in David Slade, a director who has
been able to create complex, visually arresting worlds. We cannot wait to see
the ECLIPSE he brings to life and brings to the fans eagerly awaiting its
arrival in summer of 2010."
What do you guys think? I really haven't seen any of Slade's films, so I'm eagerly waiting to see how it turns out =)

I Got My Copies of Twilight!

Okay, I officially have 3 copies of Twilight. LOL I know, I'm an addict. I've got 1 copy from Hot Topic and 2 copies from JB Hi-Fi.
I went to JBs early this morning at 6.20am in hopes of winning the first place prize. lol sadly I was 10th in line. But the first 300 copies of Twilight sold gets a free Twilight shirt, so that was pretty awesome I think.
I was only going to get one copy, I was tossing between regular and blu-ray, but i ended up getting a copy with Edward and a copy with Bella on the cover. $27.98 each which is a pretty good price I think. Whitcoulls and Borders were just a tiny bit more at $29.99.

Anyway, pretty cool cover art - different from the usual stuff. I think you can only get the 'signature' editions in Australia and NZ? I'm not 100% sure, so don't quote me on that!

His Pants Were Too Tight?

LOL, shucks, such a Rob thing I must say. Watch the vid for yourself courtesy of ET Online

How the Wolf Pack Was Cast

USA Today brings us the inside scoop to the criteria for securing a part as the wolf pack.
No. 1 on the list: Native American or First Nation ancestry, because their characters belong to the Quileute tribe, based in La Push, Wash., both in the book and in real life.

"They had to have papers that proved their heritage," says
director Chris Weitz, who was the one who insisted on hiring within the
community. "And they had to be in good physical shape."

The Twilight
sequel is filming now, and between takes, the actors usually are working out
with barbells, doing push-ups or chowing down on steak, Weitz says. "They went
through wolf camp together, and they are in constant training. It paid off as a
bonding thing for them and helped them to get to know one another. They drove
each other to get more buff."

Instead, the transformations are
computer-generated, although one part of each wolf might seem familiar.

"They all have the actor's eyes," Weitz says.
Wolves with the actor's eyes? That to me sounds genius! Can't wait to see what it will look like =)

Hot Wolf Pack!

Smokin' hot! =)
Unlike cold-blooded neck biters, these poster guys for animal magnetism are hot. So hot that their temperature runs a steady 108 degrees, as anyone who has read Stephenie Meyer's series of gothic romances knows.
That gives them a great excuse to doff their shirts on-screen and expose the physiques they've been pumping up for playing werewolves in The Twilight Saga:New Moon, the sequel to last year's supernatural sensation, due Nov. 20.
Four actors — Chaske Spencer, Alex Meraz, Kiowa Gordon and Bronson Pelletier, all with Native American heritage — join Taylor Lautner, 17, who returns as a hairier, scarier Jacob Black. The plotline finds Jacob growing closer to a distraught Bella (Kristen Stewart) after her vampire beau, Edward, runs off.

Among wolf pack job requirements: the ability to work half-naked no matter what the weather in the Vancouver, B.C., area, where the film has been shooting for several weeks.
"It's not pleasant for the actors," says director Chris Weitz. "But they have all been good-natured. They show up on location in drenching, cold rain, and I say, 'OK, off with the robes.' "

First look: 'Wolf pack' actors grin and bare it for 'New Moon'

Stephenie Updates

Stephenie has updated her website in regards to the rumors about her being sued:

There are a lot of things I should be doing updates on—for example, how awesome and successful the Book Babe event was, and how cool it was to meet all the other authors and hang out with them a little bit, and how much I appreciated all the tremendous support from the fans—but instead of commenting on happy things (which I admit I should have done a week ago; I was waiting for things to slow down for a day, silly me!), I'm commenting on ridiculous internet rumors so that my publicist's day will be just a little bit better.

I am not being sued. No one has contacted me or my publisher to inform either of us that I'm being sued. I never had a roommate named Heidi. There is no professor in the BYU English department named Dr. Peter Benton (though there is a character on ER by that name). And most of all, I began writing Twilight exactly the way I've told people in countless interviews and events for the past six years: I had a cool dream, I wrote it down, writing it down was really fun, so I kept writing until I had a whole book.

The sad thing about this silly situation is that so many legitimate news outlets reported it without doing any research at all to determine if there was any truth to the story. And at least two of these facts are really, really easy to confirm. Particularly, the one about the BYU professor. A simple on-line search can give you that information. Also, a quick call to my publisher would have cleared up the whole lawsuit story. (Kudos to the fansites who did their due diligence and debunked this rumor days ago.)

I guess the moral of the story is that—big surprise—you can't believe everything you read on the internet. Seems like it's April Fool's Day every day on-line. So no worries, the filming of New Moon continues uninterrupted. And, to end this on a bright note, the filming of New Moon continues to be awesome. It's all so beautiful! Chris Weitz is brilliant. Kristen, Rob, and Taylor are beyond words. I have gotten choked up more than once on set due to their amazing performances. I can't wait to see it all put together!

All sorted now people? Now spread the word!

Taylor's sneek peek

ET have just released a sneak peek at Taylor talking New Moon. Oh "it's good to be back".

Re: Stephenie Meyer Sued

I didn't want to post this in case it spread more rumors (who knows, some apparently can't read), but you've probably read on The Twilight Lexicon about Stephenie Meyer being sued by an old College friend and that this has halted New Moon filming....

As The Lexicon clears it up, THIS IS FALSE!

Twilight Lexicon has confirmation that this is bogus here: BOGUS

Sage (The Dills), Nikki Reed, Taylor Lautner and Kristen Stewart at Metropole

Gosh, what it must be like to live in Vancouver right now!
Vancity Allie was at the Sage performance at Metropole last night where Nikki, Kristen and Taylor were chillin' to the sounds.
This is what Allie had to say:
"Sage from the Dills was awesome! She had a great voice,
both chill and uptempo songs, and her song “Dawn” was great… it should really
make it into New Moon! Unfortunately her guitar broke at the beginning of the
show so she had to borrow the opening performer’s guitar."

"I asked her
if I could take photos of my show and she said that was cool. Nikki Reed herself
came out and sat right in front for half the show to take photos of her friend,
support her music, take videos, and dance along to the music. What a great
friend! They were talking/shouting to each other during the show the entire
time, and Nikki was giving song suggestions."

"Near the end of the
night, Sage serenaded and sang to Taylor. It was really cute. Taylor looked very
casual and cool in a plaid shirt, distressed jeans, and rockin’ plaid

Video Message from Cast on Set

How cool of the cast to send a message to Twilight fans in Italy/Volterra - too bad I can't understand what they're saying :( someone should translate! lol
Kristen speaks Italian?? I had no idea!
And Esme's hair?? wow. I like the old hair better. The new one looks good too, I just prefer the old one. It was classic and nostalgic - just the way Esme should look.
And Jasper's hair? don't get me started on that one! I say bring back the old hair. This wig just doesn't look like Jasper! The old hair sometimes made him look like a clown, but it was edgier, this new hair makes him look tame and soft. It now just looks fluffy lol. must be the sideburns?

And the last LOL of the post...Nikki and Peter doing the "I come in peace" hand signal. haha hilarious. too funny!

Sunday Morning Herald interviews Kristen

Kristen Stewart is interviewed by Australia's The Sunday Morning Herald in which she talks about her film Adventureland and her love of Australia:

"I love Australia and we have a lot of great family and friends down there. I can't wait to get back,"
"I actually don't mind Vegemite," she says, laughing.
"I know most Americans can't stand the smell, taste or look of it but I like it."

Stephenie Meyer Reflects on Twilight

The Courier-Mail have an interview with Stephenie Meyer herself as the movie DVD is literally about to be released in Australia.
She had this to say about her vamps:

"For me, a vampire was just an embodiment of that person who's in a bad place and who's told, 'You can't be anything more than what you are'.

"And then the vampire says, 'I'm not going to be what I am, I'm going to be what I want to be'. I love that. My life has been pretty easy, but you see people who overcome enormous odds. And this was a fantasy metaphor for that kind of person."
I personally liked that part :)

New Moon no. 1 movie of 2009

Amanda Bell at the Twilight Examiner thinks New Moon will rank number 1 despite abundant competition in 2009:

"While, as a fan of the Harry Potter series myself, I can anticipate that this summer’s release will be on par with the success of the prior films, and could see it lingering at the number one spot for the year for some time, New Moon’s unprecedented fan community (who, one can safely imagine, will see the film once, twice, three times or more) will propel the film to the top instantaneously. With up-coming films such as Where the Wild Things Are and Transformers 2, it is imaginable that New Moon will have sturdy competition in the blockbuster arena, but I still think that with the millions of eager nail-biting fans out there for New Moon that the film will take the number one spot and that it will close the year as the number one film for 2009."
oh, tough call. On top of waiting for New Moon, I'm also eagerly anticipating Half Blood Prince as well as Transformers 2. Who will be number 1? I'd be happy either way between HBP and New Moon - how can I choose between the 2??
What do you guys think? - Do you agree with Amanda Bell?

Cullen House birthday party outfits!

Vancity Allie struck it lucky again! She and a bunch of others camped outside the new Cullen house set in the cold cold cold weather! WOW you guys are dedicated! and well done on the fantastic coverage - you guys deserved the hugs :)

Allie has an amazingly surreal report on the night:

We were just about to give up hope when some headlights blinded us and a
white SUV pulled up… but instead of screeching off like normal… they SLOWED

We saw
Peter roll down his window…
And believe it or not… Peter Facinelli
(Carlisle), Kristen Stewart (Bella), and Nikki Reed (Rosalie) in full hair and
make up got out of the van! Peter said, “We just have to get out and give you
girls hugs for waiting all this time!” Hugs all around. Kristen asked Amy how
long we’d been there, and Amy said “10 minutes” at first and then eventually
told her the truth. Nikki was just beaming… she looked great and her new wig
looked amazing.

were super excited to see they were in full hair and makeup, all dressed up
in the new costumes for the Birthday Party scene!

Make sure you head over to Vancity Allie to read the whole report!

Mandylicious, who was also there on the night has videos!
