Twilight stars: Most Wanted, Most Beautiful, and Most Desirable
It's almost the end of the year, and it's time for various websites to compile their lists of the best and worst of 2009. The Twilight stars have secured themselves on many, many lists this year, thanks to the huge fan attention they get thought this entire year, and also the release of New Moon.
We've already posted on Rob and Kristen in TIME's list, Ashley Greene in Baltimore Sun's, and Taylor Lautner in Fitsugar's.
There's more ahead.
Rob Pattinson and Ashley Greene made Interview Magazine's Twenty Most Beautiful People of the Decade.
With five films scheduled to come out in the next year, it’s safe to say that Ashley Greene is riding the momentum from the absurd Twilight wave. The young vampire with the psychic abilities—she also has the power to make girls literally break down in tears in public—has already survived a sex-tape scandal, so that’s out of her teen idol system. But how far into her own future can she see? From where we’re standing, the near-future, at least, looks promising. “I grew up in a house that would be perfect to set a horror movie in. It was out in the country, right on the water. I’m glad I never got to see scary movies when I was young. Otherwise I would have imagined things coming out of the lake.
A bit of Brando, a twinge of Dean, the Twilight star possesses that slightly strange alien quality that turns brooding good looks into the iconic. He has just enough edge to make teens and tabloids go into "crazed hunter" mode—have you seen Robsessed?—but also a disarming, slightly crippling self-awareness. It's early yet for Pattinson, but we're eagerly awaiting part two of his entertaining saga.
On life before Twilight: "We spent the better part of a year just getting drunk every night... "I don't know if that counts as ‘struggling.'"
Taylor Lautner and Rob Pattinson is up for E!'s The 20 Bestest Celebs of 2009.
Simple question, tough answer: Who's celebrity of the year?
As popular as he is, did Robert Pattinson actually do anything other than look good?
Kristen Stewart's Adventureland and Anna Kendrick's Up in the Air makes the list of Moviefone's 50 Best Movies of 2009.
1. 'Up in the Air'
With three feature films now under his belt – 'Thank You for Smoking,' 'Juno' and now this instant classic -- is there any doubt that 32-year-old Jason Reitman is one of Hollywood's best directors? George Clooney somehow makes a corporate downsizer (topical!) lovable and magnetic in a superb lead turn (his best yet), while Anna Kendrick and Vera Farmiga kill as the distinctly powerful women who change his life. 'Air' is a near-perfect film that is at times bitingly funny, at other times heartrendingly sad -- sort of like life, come to think of it. -- KP
Coming of age dramedies are a dime a dozen these days, so it's always a treat to find one that manages to be fresh, funny -- and not entirely clichéd. 'Superbad' director Greg Mottola scores again with this nostalgic trip to the titular park in the summer of '87 starring a lovable Jesse Eisenberg and an uncharacteristically charismatic Kristen Stewart. Plus, the film confirms what most of us have long suspected: Amusement park games are all rigged! -- KP
Meanwhile, in Twilight land, Edward Cullen and Jacob Black makes Extra's Most Desirable Male Characters 2009.
1. Edward Cullen
America’s favorite vampire, played by Robert Pattinson, returned to the big screen in “New Moon,” where his chiseled face and serious manner made Twi-hard fans wild.
2. Jacob Black
Werewolf Jacob, played by Taylor Lautner, caused fans to switch from Team Edward to Team Jacob after packing on 30 pounds of muscle — and staying shirtless throughout “New Moon.”
'The Twilight Saga: New Moon' is also among Facebook's top status trends of 2009
According to Tech Blorge, The Twilight Saga: New Moon was the most talked about movie on Facebook user status updates. Movies were, according to the list, the sixth top status trends of 2009, and of all of the movies of the year, New Moon was the biggest buzz-maker.
