Ms. MS Letter to Rob Pattinson

Image
A good deed deserve a thank-you letter, yes? A sick fan wishes to send Rob a thank-you letter to him for signing her copy of New Moon when she couldn't meet him as planned. Fortunately for her, her letter has caught the attention of Peter Facinelli, who tweeted about it. Here's what the girl wrote back to Rob: Dear Rob, I recently received the signed New Moon book that you autographed for me in NYC while you were filming Remember Me. The wonderful ladies at the Morgan Stanley Childrens Hospital Fund especially Ms Chris and one of her friends spent alot of their own personal time and effort in getting this for me after contacting Ms C from Remember Me. I will always be truly grateful to them for this gift. I can't thank you enough for taking the time out of your busy life and schedule to sign this for me. It means more to me than you will ever truly know. I am not sure how much you were told of me, but my name is Ms. MS and I am nearly 24 years old. I have a very rare lung disor…

Rob Pattinson and Kristen Stewart To Confirm Relationship??

Image
All together now. OMFG!!! It has been reported that Rob and Kristen will finally announce their relationship (seriously??) The latest from the Twilight camp is that Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart will go public with their real-life romance in a revealing interview in the December issue of Harper’s Bazaar Magazine! A Harper’s employee who was at the photoshoot for the mag revealed to In Touch that “Rob and Kristen were relatively open about their relationship." The tell-all interview will supposedly confirm the months and months of speculation about the Twilight star's intense romance that they've been trying so hard to keep behind closed doors. The magazine should hit newstands right before New Moon's November 20 opening. Could this be another rumour, or is it so true?? It's Harper Bazaar, anyway... via Celebuzz

Taylor Lautner almost missed Jacob role

Image
It's true! Taylor Lautner auditioned for the role of Jacob Black in Twilight at the same time he auditioned for another role in the movie adaptation of the musical Fame. He was auditioning for Fame along with actress Keke Palmer. Keke told an interviewer: "We were both up for roles in the movie, and we both didn't get parts. He wouldn't have been able to do Twilight if he did Fame, so I'm happy he lost out." via Take40

Eclipse set update

Image
Another tweet from David Slade. 2 days ago spent an entire day shooting in a tent. Today shooting with 2nd unit. Big Thanks to all birthday well wishers its been a good day 11:02 PM Sep 26th from web Malicious Mandy also has many, many new photos of the cast heading out to dinner yesterday. Tonight was pretty amazing. I had a chance to go fangirl - and that doesn't happen very often anymore.... I knew it was David's Slade's birthday and people suspected a "cast party" but I also suspected he was out of town for filming on the island. [Which I believe even more so now based on his tweets tonight] Still, paparazzi in high numbers usually indicates Twilight Cast... there are few other stars in town that would generate that kind of excitement and since my friends had reservations already I decided - why not? [Twitter has been a buzz about a fan tipping off paparazzi where the cast was but I can assure you that wasn't me because when I arrived there were a ton of papraz…

Celebrity sites says Eclipse shooting is 'unique'

Image
The Globe and Mail has an article on how celebrity gossip sites are buzzing about the shooting of Eclipse. The Twilight films are based on Stephenie Meyer's novels of the same name about the vampire Edward (Pattinson) and Bella (Stewart), the human teen who falls for him. The novels were bestsellers before they hit the big screen, but the films have turned the Twilight industry into an even larger phenomenon – fuelling a staggering interest in the stars. “Any and every photo – it doesn't matter how bad it is, it doesn't matter how little you can see of the people, the fans want to see everything and they will look at every single photo all day long,” To say the photos are good for driving traffic to the websites is an understatement. “I think there's probably more interest in this film than any other,” says Adam Nutburn, whose U.K.-based site Showbiz Spy posts daily updates on the stars in Vancouver. “It's constant.” “We've never seen this level of interest by the p…

Kellan Lutz supports animal welfare

Image
We just love a guy whom loves animals, don't we? Kellan Lutz is showing his support towards animal welfare. Kellan Lutz, who plays Emmett Cullen in the 2008 film 'Twilight' and in the soon-to-be-released 'New Moon,' has joined Brooke Shields, Kristin Davis, Christina Applegate and Joanna Krupa in signing the "Animals Matter to Me" petition for a Universal Declaration on Animal Welfare. The purpose of the document, which urges the United Nations to adopt an international agreement on the welfare of animals, is to raise awareness about animal welfare issues during World Animal Week from October 4 to October 10, 2009. "Support from the entertainment industry is vital in helping to bring attention to animal issues on a global scale. We are thrilled that these stars aligned themselves with WSPA to ask for a Universal Declaration on Animal Welfare. Whether providing comfort and companionship in our homes or supplying crucial labor to support families in need…

Ashley Greene on Saturday Night magazine

Image
Ashley Greene is featured on the cover of the October issue ofSaturday Nightmagazine, and they had an exclusive interview with her. Could you tell us about the new Twilight movie, New Moon? It was fun for me because it was a little more in-depth for Alice’s character. It’s more about the angst part of it than the love story as far as Edward and Bella. Edward leaves Bella, so she kind of falls into a depression and gets close to Jacob, and discovers a couple more crazy things about the town. We had a blast filming. We got to go to Italy, which was amazing. It was a couple of us who got to go to Italy, and I was included. It was coming back to the people we got really close to in the movie before so it was like a little reunion. And Chris Weitz directed it, and he was incredible. I feel like the set was so chill and really comfortable, and it seemed like it was all very planned out and very put together so we weren’t going crazy and stressing out. I’m excited to see it all put together. …

The wolfpack spotted

Image
LG spots the wolfpack in Vancouver, and gives details on a recent scene they shot. These are members of the pulchritudinous Quileute Nation out and about Vancouver recently– young BooBoo Stewart with a new haircut, Chaske Spencer and the rarely seen and very beautiful Tinsel Korey. She’s stunning. Also, oh la, Alex Meraz who doesn’t seem to be capable of taking a bad photo. I mean really, it’s like a photo shoot every time. BooBoo spent a few days working on set before heading out again after shooting the large wolf gathering scenes last week around the fire during which “Bella” hears the tale of Taha Aki and the Third Wife. via Twicrack

Eclipse update from Ashley Greene

Ashley Greene tweets from the Eclipse set! Looks like they're halfway done. That's quick, eh... Listening to old incubus...brilliant. Headed to work...I can't believe we're already at the halfway point! Check out my first cover on Saturday Night Magazine!! Very exciting for me :) Just got off set....

Harvard Lampoon spoofs 'Twilight' with 'Nightlight'

Image
Here's another Twilight spoof (people have so much time to spoof Twilight, yet spend little time actually reading it *shakes head*...), this time from the infamous Harvard Lampoon. Harvard University’s humor and satire magazine has a spoof of Twilight coming out entitled Nightlight. The Harvard Lampoon has been around nearly 300 years and was initially modeled on the British humor magazine Punch. They have done a parody of anything and everything. According to the description on Amazon “About three things I was absolutely certain. First, Edwart was most likely my soul mate, maybe. Second, there was a vampire part of him–which I assumed was wildly out of his control–that wanted me dead. And third, I unconditionally, irrevocably, impenetrably, heterogeneously, gynecologically, and disreputably wished he had kissed me. And thus Belle Goose falls in love with the mysterious and sparkly Edwart Mullen in the Harvard Lampoon’s hilarious send-up of Twilight. Pale and klutzy, Belle arrives in…

Eclipse set update

Image
Lainey Gossip gave more details on what MM reported yesterday. New photos of Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson on set yesterday. Joan Jett hair made an appearance early in the morning upon arrival – so much better than that ghetto wig – as both look relaxed, hitting up on coffee to prepare for a long day working on Eclipse. Billy Burke was also on set shooting a scene from early in the film that takes place outside the police station. “Bella” and “Edward” drive up in his Volvo. She’s all curious about sh- and demanding to know everything and he’s being cagy with his answers because what she doesn’t know might hurt her because she’s so fragile and pathetic and then “Charlie” comes out and they talk about the airline ticket and going away together. Earlier this week, Pattinson was shooting vampire fights on the second unit while the main crew filmed Stewart with Taylor Lautner’s “Jacob” and his boys and Leah’s transformation is revealed. I don't know why people send LG hate mails.…

Xavier Samuel talks Eclipse

Image
Moviehole has an exclusive interview with Eclipse newbie (and hottie) Xavier Samuel. Question: Did you know anything about that particular franchise? Samuel: To be honest, not really. Like, I watched the film on the plane. And at that stage, I hadn't read the books, but I have now. I knew very little about it. I knew that it was extremely popular, and people kind of go crazy for it. Question: Crazy is an understatement. Samuel: Yeah. Like, you know, this notion of eternal love, and danger, and - you know, the thing that you love could kill you - that sort of stuff is, like - I guess it's intoxicating for a lot of people. Question: And you play a vampire in Eclipse? Samuel: Newborn vampire. Question: A newborn vampire. Do you do any research on something like this? Samuel: Sleep in coffins at night, and stuff like that? Question: Or look at classic horror films that explored vampire culture. Samuel: I think that I've resisted that temptation, because the vampires, in Twilight, are ve…

Box Office interviews Taylor Lautner

Image
Box Office has a new interview with Taylor Lautner, giving us more about the man behind Jacob Black. If the last two books in the series hadn't already been written, what do you think Jacob should do to win over Bella? I don't think he would have changed anything, and I don't think he should change anything. Jacob and Edward are extremely different guys and it's just whether you want one guy or another. Jacob is himself, and he has a relationship with Bella that Edward doesn't. And Edward has a relationship with Bella that Jacob doesn't. So I wouldn't change a thing. As an actor, how do you make the audience root for Jacob and get invested in his feelings when the outcome of the love triangle is already known? Well, you try and take things one step at a time. When I'm filming New Moon, I'm not thinking about Eclipse. When I'm filming Eclipse, I'm not thinking about Breaking Dawn. We just have to focus on the movie that we're doing. Everybody …

Kellan Lutz talks about being a free spirit and keeping fit

Image
Here's Part 2 of Twilight Parents Examiner's interview with Kellan Lutz. About being a free spirit: I just love what I do. I found myself going on this one path becoming a chemical engineer making $60,000 a year- it was a respectable job. But my personality needs more. The rush of having an audition or becoming another character was awesome. But thank God that He was there shooing me in the right direction. He just kept me safe, and I know I put my mom through some stressful times. That’s why I wear a white bracelet on left wrist. It's my freedom bracelet. It’s finally my life and I get to do what I want to do, and it reminds me where I came from. I’m in it for the right reasons. I don’t care to be famous; I don’t care to be in the tabloids. I just love to act. I enjoy it so much. It’s just my favorite hobby that I’ve unlocked inside of myself, and I’d love to do it for the rest of my life. About being snapped by the paparazzi driving a mini-van: I did that on purpose- my fami…

People Magazine's latest issue (October 5th) will have exclusive photos from the New Moon Complete Illustrated Movie Companion!! In one photo, Edward and Bella is running through the woods. “In the film Stewart (in dream sequence with Robert Pattinson as vampire Edward) has a ‘fairy-tale’ look to her” says the movie’s key hairstylist. After Edward leaves her “She goes through degrees of …. being unkempt.” via NewMoonMovie

Eclipse set updates

Image
More set details from MM!!I went by this set the other day and got some great shots of it being built. It is always awesome to see preparation of sets....you can get closer and see more than during a live set filming. It looks just like the police station from the first Twilight Movie and was completely designed (inside and out) to be an exact replica. While the cement-looking portions are actually plywood painted with a thin layer of liquid concrete to give the illusion of being actual cement. Neat eh? With "Edward" "Bella" and "Charlie" on set - what scenes do you think they were filming? There was some interior shots, some exterior shots and of course "Edward" and "Bella" driving up in the volvo. Today (Sept 23) I went by the set and was lucky enough to walk by when they were rehersing Edward and Bella on the front porch/entry to the Police Station. I saw Robert & Kristen and a guy I didn't recognize (crew maybe? not sure) I did…

The Host may be a movie soon!!

Image
Yes! According toVariety, the rights to a movie adaptation of Stephenie Meyer's adult novel, The Host has been purchased. Producers Nick Wechsler, Steve and Paula Mae Schwartz have used their own money to acquire screen rights to "The Host," the first adult novel written by Stephenie Meyer, author of the "Twilight" series. Andrew Niccol will write the script and direct. Meyer's novel is a love story set in the near future on Earth, which has been assimilated by an alien species of benevolent parasites that call themselves "Souls." One such soul, the Wanderer, is fused with a dying human named Melanie Stryder, in an attempt to locate the last pocket of surviving humans on Earth. In addition to writing four volumes of the "Twilight" series, Meyer has been heavily involved in the screen transfers, and she spurned several overtures for "The Host." The producers continued lobbying the author and her UTA reps with a significant offer, …

Eclipse Set Updates

Image
Malicious Mandy reports from the set of Eclipse. Today there were two sets and a lot of twitter drama over what was happening at each of them. For that very reason my set report will be brief tonight. Twitter was all a buzz about one set today and although I didn't go to that set today they have been there for a week now and I have other photos from there that were taken last week and I hope to post tomorrow, providing today was their last day there (The sun has been postponing/adjusting a lot of schedules) Fans there today reported seeing Jackson waving from a van and umbrella's blocking vehicles. None reported seeing him injured but I believe the reason Jackson was seen coming and going from the set today was because he had to actually leave set briefly due to injury... From what I heard that set was filming some stunt and action shots involving Jackson Rathbone & Ashley Greene... as a follow up to yesterday. I do have new photos I took from that new set today.... and I will…

Melissa Rosenberg talks Eclipse and screenwriting

Image
Screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg comments on Eclipse, and also adapting the book to the movie. She says that Eclipse will be darker. To find out how dark Eclipse will be, we'll have to wait until the movie actually comes out. But Twi-screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg says there's absolutely no doubt the third flick in the vampire franchise is taking a darker turn. And she credits the storyline and director David Slade for that... "David has a darker sensibility, so it clicks," Rosenberg said. "The story has a slightly darker tone. I mean, it goes into a full-out battle, so it is darker in the nature of what it is. David was the perfect director for it." But not to worry, Rosenberg said, Eclipse won't be unrecognizable. "They have the continuity of having the same writers and same actors, but the directors put their own stamp on it," she said. "They'll be similar, but very different." She also says that writing the Twilight series screenpla…

More tweets from David Slade! Today, vampires talking, vampires kissing, rain stayed away. We had to battle the sunlight to keep our vampires from sparkling too much.

New Moon US tickets, premiere update

Image
New Moon is about 2 months away, and tickets in the US are already selling out - fast!! Fan frenzy is already breaking records for "The Twilight Saga: New Moon." Online ticket sellers MovieTickets and Fandango report that the follow-up to last year's hit from Summit Entertainment, which sold $191.5 million worth of tickets in the U.S. and Canada, is selling out screenings earlier than any other movie to date. "New Moon" has sold out 50 showtimes of nearly 22,000 offered on Fandango and 13 showtimes of 2,912 offered on MovieTickets. Most of the sold-out shows are at or around midnight Nov. 20, when the movie debuts. The two websites started selling "New Moon" tickets extraordinarily early -- Aug. 31 for Fandango and Sep. 10 for MovieTickets -- as the theater chains they work with began scheduling screenings in anticipation of a huge first weekend. The first "Twilight" grossed a stellar $36 million on its Friday opening, reflecting pent-up dema…

Kellan Lutz: Humbled by Fans, Longs for Normalcy

Image
Twilight Parents Examiner has an exclusive interview with Kellan Lutz. After a grueling day on the set of Eclipse and playing guinea pig in preparation for shooting fight scenes, the always-gracious Kellan Lutz was sweet enough to use some of his much-needed down time to chat with me. Kellan is an open book about many things close to his heart, including a several month journey to Africa to film Generation Kill, and his dog, Kola. During our conversation, however, the issue of respect came to play, giving fans an inside peek into the lack of privacy which has become a constant in the lives of the Twilight stars. Hype surrounding the Saga and enthusiastic, gift-bearing fans are at a culminated high during the filming of Eclipse, as are paparazzi determined to catch the actors in any situation, both on and off set. While the actors of the Twilight Saga are incredibly generous and appreciative of their endearing fans, they, too, enjoy their much-needed, rarely granted seclusion. About his fa…

SNL wants Rob!

Image
The cast of Saturday Night Live tells E! they want Rob Pattinson to appear on the late night skit show! We know you're kicking off the season with Megan Fox, but how about getting Twilight hottie Robert Pattinson on to host? Seth Meyers: We would love to get Robert Pattinson. How dare you tell me he's the hot guy from Twilight, like I don't already know! Seth Meyers, closet Twilight, or maybe just Rob Pattinson fan. We love it! So the powers that be at SNL would be into Rob hosting? S.M.: Yes, absolutely. Think of all the ridiculous skits you could do with him. The possibilities are endless! That hair... S.M.: We're actually hoping if [Rob's] not available, at least his hair will come by and host. If you all didn't already heart the adorable Seth Meyers, bet you Twi lovers do now! Kristen Wiig is totally into the idea too. We're campaigning for Rob to host SNL this season. Will it happen? Kristen Wiig: Oh! I don't know. I don't know about that yet! Would you…
