ShockYa: “Twilight” is enormously popular and “Breaking Dawn,” which you are in, is sure to be huge. You play Egyptian vampire Tia, which sounds kind of sexy and dangerous.
AS: She is, both sexy and dangerous. It’s not that much make-up, actually, but it will be extraordinary. I keep using that word! I’m sick of that word. It will be huge! The whole thing will be mind-blowing, I think. Tia comes from Egypt, and she grew up in poverty, so she’s learned to survive as a person from the streets. Her and Benjamin both lived, struggled, did things, and eventually they get this opportunity with what happens with Renesmee to fight authority. And I think that’s a really exciting thing for both of them, because if you look at it it’s incredible. The book and movie actually covers really big themes — the rich against the poor, power against the person that is oppressed. And I think in Egypt, especially with everything that is happening now, well, it’s funny that that is happening. …Most women from the Middle East are told to cover their faces, but I don’t think that (choice) exists for Tia. She’s a strong, beautiful, sexy woman. So I compare it to Cleopatra and MarkAntony in a way. She was a ruler, and so I think they’re a team, working together to maybe fight something that will save a lot of vampires ultimately.
“Never in a million years would I have even guessed it, you know?” she said. “It was amazing.”
She was a fan before she auditioned for the role, which she snagged quickly, though she didn’t know she was cast until months afterward.
“I was introduced (to “Twilight”) by my sisters, and my sisters are quite a bit younger than me, and they introduced me to the movies,” Quintanilla said. “And I thought it was really silly at first … and then I watched them and was in love with them and couldn’t wait to see the next one.”
Those who have read the books know how important the role of Huilen is. And though the “Twilight” saga is officially over with the release of “Breaking Dawn,” there’s a lot of back story author Stephanie Meyer could explore.
If Meyer does change her mind and revisits the “Twilight” universe of vampires, shapeshifters and humans, perhaps it could mean more screen time for Quintanilla as Huilen.
“Fingers crossed, believe me, it was discussed on set with the boy that plays my nephew,” she said. “We were like, I mean, come on, they have to do another movie, or at least a webisode about these characters. There’s like, a whole world that they could talk about.”
She worked directly with Robert Pattinson (Edward) and Kristin Stewart (Bella).
“It was surprisingly amazing and easy and just so easy, breezy, cool and casual,” she said. “They had no attitude; everybody on the set was just kind, generous and in a way that I was just really taken aback by because these people are so famous.”
In spite of how some media paint Stewart out to be a snob, she was anything but, Quintanilla said.
“She was just the sweetest thing. She was really nice and shy, if anything,” she said. “She’s so much like (her) character: shy, a little awkward – in the cutest, most endearing kind of way.”
And Quintanilla had nothing but praise for Pattinson, too.
“Rob, as well, (was) just so nice and soft-spoken. Neither of them is ever loud or getting all the attention or anything like that on set,” Quintanilla said. “They’re just really quiet and do their job and nice to everyone."
This month’sTotal Filmfeatures an hunktastic shoot with Abduction star Taylor Lautner, and we’ve got an online exclusive image below.
We caught up with Lautner in LA to discuss his leap to action movie stardom with Abduction.
With his legions of squealing fans, Lautner has the teen idol/lust object bit down pat, but will he convince as an action man?
He certainly has some lofty aspirations, telling us, “The most important thing I did with John [Singleton – director] was sit down beforehand and watch a lot of movies and study actors that I look up to.”
“We studied Tom Cruise in Minority Report, Harrison Ford, Matt Damon, Denzel Washington…”
When we asked if he was actively looking to inherit their gig, he replied: “That would be an honour, to be compared to people like that. I look up to Tom Cruise and Matt Damon.
“I would kill to have the careers they’ve had…”
Pick up the new issue of Total Film Magazine, which hits newsstands on 1 September 2011!
Question: You were cast as Emily Young, the fiancée of Sam Uley over 800 other actresses. How did you react when you were told you had been cast?
Tinsel Korey: I was really excited. Especially since I thought I hadnt done well on the audition. But Im also my toughest critic.
Question: The character, Emily is scarred from a previous incident with Sam Uley; can you talk about the time you spent in make up preparing for your role in the Twilight Saga movies.
Tinsel Korey: We had different make up teams for the different movies. For New Moon the make up took three - four hours on the day; because we had two test days. For Eclipse they had to do the make up on set and try to match the first teams job, so it ending up taking eight hours, then five hours, then they got it down to three hours. Then in Breaking Dawn they had a new type of scar material, and it only took two hours. It is quite a process for sure.
Question: Were you sad to say goodbye to filming the Twilight Saga when you finished part 1 of Breaking Dawn?
Tinsel Korey: Of course, its a chapter in your life ending. I remember being at dinner with everyone, and was like "Are we all still going to be friends after this ends?"
Question: How has your life changed since being cast in the Twilight Saga?
Tinsel Korey: I guess the amount of attention I get has changed. But how I perceive my reality hasnt, I always remember to stay humble. As fast as something is given to you, it can be taken away just as fast!
Question: In the movie you are a motherly figure to Sam Uleyswerewolf pack, how are you similar to the character of Emily Young?
Tinsel Korey: I take care of the boys the same way. Always acting like the big sister, and making sure theyre ok.
Question: Can you share with our readers what goes on, on the set of Twilight?
Tinsel Korey: There are pranks and stuff that we play on each other, and Im surrounded by boys, so theres lots of male energy on set.
Question: How do you deal with the crazy fan mania that surrounds Twilight?
Tinsel Korey: Most of the fans are just really passionate about the Twilight Saga. Some can get a little "interesting", but thats normally online, never in person, for me at least.
Question: Have you had a crazy fan experience?
Tinsel Korey: With Twilight? No. Outside of Twilight, yes.
Question: Did you read any of the Twilight books before auditioning for the role of Emily Young?
Tinsel Korey: Of course! I read New Moon before filming that movie. Then I spent some time on the Quileute Reservation teaching drama to their kids and visited the Makahnation (where Emily is from) as well, before I started filming Eclipse. I have a very deep understanding of where my character comes from.
Question: Did you meet Stephanie Meyers on the set of Breaking Dawn?
Tinsel Korey: No, but I did get the pleasure of meeting her on the set of New Moon.
Question: Could you talk about your character in the upcoming films Avarice and Stained?
Tinsel Korey: Avarice: Shes sort of a lost soul, really edgy, and her and the other character come upon this mystery box that shows you the one thing you want in life. Its a sci-fi action film.
Stained: Was a darker role cause its a horror. I played a schizophrenic serial killer. Every day was a challenge for me, as I had to dive into this really dark place. I got to push myself as an actor though, and my craft is the most important thing to me.
Question: You are working on the comedy Fishing Naked at the moment, can you talk about this film and what audiences should expect?
Tinsel Korey: After doing such intense films, I started to look for comedies, which is actually a strength of mine. And thats when Fishing Naked came my way. Its sort of like American Pie with a Super Natural twist. I get to work with Bronson again, and I just think hes so talented, so Im really excited about that. We start filming in September.
Question: What was your inspiration to get into acting industry?
Tinsel Korey: Art is a way of me expressing myself. I play music and paint as well. I cant live without art. I dont know if something specific inspired me; I think it was just a part of my core.
Question: How do you have time to focus on your acting career and your singer-songwriting career?
Tinsel Korey: Well doing a studio album has been a challenge because every time I get started with music, acting takes my attention away. But I just move with whatever medium inspires me at that time.
Favorite memory with Rob Pattinson is trying to teach him to play baseball. Favorite Rob memory? Teaching him to play baseball. Favorite part of Eclipse? Throwing Rob to the ground, says it was not ed. ;) Peter jokes that the 20 somethings just want to know what Rob smells like.
Says Rob is "really cool" to work with and enjoyed finally getting to know him during filming of Breaking Dawn. BooBoo was finally able to talk with Rob Pattinson. Says hes hilarious and just a cool guy. Asked if hes Team Edward or Jacob. Says Edward first and then says both. BooBoo jokes that he is Team Edward... then says he doesnt know. Theyre both cool. Says Rob was the funniest guy on the set.."naturally funny guy". BooBoo says that Rob is naturally funny, when asked who was the funniest on set.
Little girl asks him his fave part of first movie-giving Rob the hairy eyeball and play fighting with @billy_burke. Gil says he enjoyed play fist fighting with billy burke & another fav was giving the stink eye to Rob Pattinson.
"hey.. Im sorry Im not Robert!" when telling funny fan story Craziest fan experience-guri says in Italy someone kept staring at him. Says"sry Im not Robert." When his experience gets shot dwn by vamps.
Says that you shouldnt take others opinion too seriously cites the protest of Rob when originally cast as Edward.
"The end was a shock for us" Romantic, hot - and painful! In this way, the "Twilight" stars Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson experienced the final of the vampire saga.
TV Movie: Finally! The wedding bells are ringing for Hollywoods dream couple. For now, though, only in cinemas: In the first part of the "Twilight" showdown (part 2 starts in 2012) Kristen as a beautiful mortal, and Rob as a sexy vampire pledge their troth either to other. And: For the first time there are some really hot bed scenes! We met the young stars for an interview at San Diegos ComicCon.
TV Movie: Be honest: Was the film sex difficult for you? Rob: Oh yes! I felt really uncomfortable.
TV Movie: Too many people on set? Rob: No, a fear had rather something to do with Taylor and his fantastic body. Jacob, as a werwolf, has bared all already in the last two films. And to be honest, I cant keep up with him.
TV Movie: The fans will be pleased with the new passion nevertheless... Kristen: After for year its about time! [laughs] Rob: Theyre very emotional scenes. For the first time I felt like a human, not like a vampire.
TV Movie: What do you think of Bellas wedding dress? Kristen: I love it! Its old fashioned, though, but thats exactly what I like.
TV Movie: Would you wear such a dress on your own wedding? Kristen: No, no. But it fits for Bella, and thats most important.
TV Movie: Do you believe in marriage? Kristen: I like the thought of two people staying together for the rest of their lives. For me, however, this doesnt need to be sealed with signatures.
TV Movie: How would you describe the first part of "Breaking Dawn"? Kristen: Mature is the right word. This time its not about fighting, but the fact that we start a family.
TV Movie: The film is also very dark... Kristen: Thats right. Bella keeps saying that she would die for a life with Edward. In the movie she shows how seriously she takes it.
TV Movie: Is Edward the great hero like everyone thinks? Rob: For me hes never been the great hero. Edward isnt interested in the rest of the world at all. Just at the end.
TV Movie: With the birth of his vampire daughter... Rob: Exactly. The moment when the baby comes into world, he no longer thinks only of himself.
TV Movie: [Part 2] is filmed already, the Twilight saga is over. What does it feel like? Rob: Im a bit paranoid and think after every film "That was my last one..."
TV Movie: What will you miss the most? Kristen: Ive been living in a different world for 4 years and I really liked it there [laughs]. Ill miss everything. Rob: Same for me. Especially the last day was a shock. Ive never wanted to think about the end, and then it was suddenly there. Now we have to live with it.
Kellan Lutz can’t wait for fans to watch Edward and Bella tie the knot in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1, which is in theaters this fall.
“I’ve been waiting for it,” he tells me during the DKNY Sunglass Soiree at The Beach at Dream Downtown in NYC. “I read all the books. What I get the biggest kick out of is knowing what the fans are really going to love, so when we shoot a scene like that, like the marriage and the arm-wrestling scene for Kristen [Stewart] and I, I just love when you bring this idea in your head – ‘cause you envision how the scene is going to be shot – and then it comes to reality, and you’re really in the moment and you feel alive and interjected with it. And then you step back, and you’re like ‘the fans are really going to like this. They’re *really* going to like this."
He adds, “It was cold as heck that day, but it was beautiful. It really was. It was really special seeing Stephenie Meyer in the back, crying, because this is such an important scene in the movie, the book and the series, and in all the fans lives for them to see it.”
Hm, what was so beautiful about it?
“It’s a wedding, and these forbidden loves finally become one. The lion and the lamb becoming one, which is truly special. I’m all for marriage. My brother got married – I got teary-eyed at that. I think it’s special. I can’t wait to hear the music that’s going to be laid behind it. I think everyone’s going to love it.”
InStyle Magazine talked to Jamie Campbell Bower about Camelot and his fantasy projects.
Instyle: A lot of your roles seem to be quite fantastical -Harry Potter,Twilight, evenSweeney Todd, would you like to do a role that was just simply a guy living now?
JCB: If it was a good story I would jump at the chance, it just so happens that most things that I’ve done has been that sort of supernatural role. But that’s because it’s a good story. I’ve just got a new project, which is a fantasy series, so for the near future its all fantastical.
Instyle: “You’ve been in both Harry Potter and Twilight, was it a different experience on each set?
JCB: Every job is different. My time on Harry Potter was very, very short, whereas my time on Twilight was quite long and extended. Every job brings a new life experience. I was able to come back home when I was in Potter, whereas when I was in Twilight I was out in Baton Rouge and Vancouver for five months together. Every job should just bring something new and exciting and should help you grow. Instyle: Who would win the battle between team Twilight and team Potter?
JCB: Now, I got asked this question the other day, but if it was just the two leads – Edward vs Harry. I said Edward would win in that situation, because once you get the wand out of Harrys hand, he’s dead. But, you’ve thrown a new dynamic into it because if it was a team battle, honestly then, I don’t know. I probably have to say the vampires again, they do move at super speed but the other guys have wands and you can stand back, you don’t have to get so close. Who knows? It’s a debate that philosophers have been thinking about for years now!"
Rising star Sam Claflin talks about his upcoming role as Prince Charming himself in Snow White and the Huntsman.
British actor Sam Claflin is quickly becoming one-to-watch in Hollywood. After completing his acting training at LAMDA, and doing a few roles on television and one smaller film, Claflin managed to land a coveted part in one of the most well-known franchises today, Pirates of the Caribbean. We had the chance to speak with the actor about his character Philip (the missionary lost in a sea of ruthless pirates) in Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides at the Los Angeles press day for the film. Stay tuned for our coverage from the event.
During the course of our conversation, we also touched upon the two (notable) films that Claflin has signed on for, following his turn in Pirates. The actor will star opposite cinematic icon Jeff Bridges in The Seventh Son (though production has been delayed on that film); he will also portray none other than Prince Charming himself in one of the two upcoming twists on the Snow White legend, Universal’s Snow White and the Huntsman. Claflin joins Kristen Stewart as the ever-in-peril-but-always-victorious Snow, and Charlize Theron as the beautiful and deadly (some might say reactionary) Evil Queen.
Armie Hammer, who gave a standout performance in The Social Network as the simultaneously attractive and repellent Winklevoss twins, will play the part of the prince in the other interpretation of the classic tale, Snowand the Seven. When we asked Claflin who would win a Prince Charming “throwdown,” the actor laughingly responded:
-“He’ll definitely outdo me! Undoubtedly! Hopefully, and I’m sure, we’ll both portray two very, very different Princes. But being humble, I’d have to say that he would do a very, very good job and probably ‘smash it’ more than I will. But I’m going to obviously put my heart and soul into that, as much as I have for this (“Pirates”) and try my hardest to beat him."
Perhaps as a result of Kristen Stewartsinvolvement in the film, some fans are beginning to liken Snow White and the Huntsman to Twilight, and speculate that there will be a love-triangle between Snow, the Huntsman and the Prince. “It depends really who plays the huntsmen I suppose,” Claflin mused.
-“Because there were rumors that it would be Viggo Mortensen or Hugh Jackman, (if it were) someone like that with Snow White being Kristen Stewart it wouldn’t be as much of a triangle. However, if it’s someone like Chris Hemsworth (who is rumored to be in talks to take on the role) yes, maybe it would be more of a love triangle."
Boo Boo Stewart and his sister Fivel Talk Breaking Dawn , Wedding Scene at Teen Choice Awards with OKmagazine.
Sister and brother duo Fivel andBoo Boo Stewart weren’t shy last night when it came to dishing all about Twilight, including the wedding scene and whether or not Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattison live together!
So, when it comes to the wedding scene, was he there for filming or not? BooBoo got tripped up on his words! Maybe he just got overly excited with this cryptic quote? He told OK!, “Yes. I mean, I don’t know if I was! Oh no, that’s in the trailer so it’s okay."
Moving right along, considering he’s known K-Stew and R-Pattz for the past two years, he says they haven’t changed a bit and they’re “exactly the same.” He told reporters, "It’s not like I get to hang out with them all the time but every time I’ve been with them, it doesn’t matter how crazy the situation is, and they’re just always so laid back."
And in case you’re wondering, it was a bit strange since they’re a couple in real life. Booboo added, "It was weird. I was sitting there and I was like, ‘this is actually really touching.’ I was sitting in the back."
Considering Ashley Greene and Kellan Lutz moved in together as roommates in NYC, BooBoos not sure if others from the cast will be doing that so soon, ahem K-Stew and R-Pattz? Fivel asked OK!, "Oh, they’re not already?" And then her brother chimed in, “I don’t know!"
The previous films were fairly close to the books; what about ”Breaking Dawn”?
Kristen : It’s pretty true to the book – so if that’s what you thought about the previous films you’ll definitely [feel the same with Breaking Dawn]. The story this time is a little bit more life and death, in a realistic sense – - what with Bella pregnant with a demon baby. It’s the first time, I think, that you’re not worried about Edward and Bella breaking up, they’re actually working through issues that are kind of make or break… I don’t know how to say it without giving away all the story.
What do you think about them splitting “Breaking Dawn” into two movies
Taylor : I think it’s perfect; it needed to be done. This Part 1 is amazing, I can’t wait for everyone to see it.
Would you say this was the most difficult book to bring to the big screen?
Absolutely. It was very challenging. There was a lot of stuff that was just.. difficult to show.. difficult to do.. and Jacob goes through a lot – I mean, his number one goal has been to always end up with Bella, and of course we know that doesn’t exactly happen; from the beginning of the movie to the end he changes a lot.. he’s forced to mature.
What do you remember from the very last day of shooting?
Kristen : The very last day of shooting I was in a wetsuit and – I’d been in the water for like ten-hours, literally; it was tough to ‘get the light’ or whatever – I ran over to my producer Godfrey and wrapped my legs around his waist, because he didn’t get in the water all night; so I took him on in, it was fun.
And Taylor, will we get to see more of your Abs before the “Twilight” series comes to an end?
Taylor : [Laughs] Um.. I’m not sure, I’ll guess you’ll have to wait and see.
The Twilight cast hit Comic-Con to talk about Breaking Dawn part one, and I had a few minutes to chat with Julia Jones, who plays Leah Clearwater, the lone werewolf girl in the wolf pack. Jones chatted about her role in the film and her emotional scenes with Taylor Lautner, as well as getting to check out the big Breaking Dawn wedding.
BuzzSugar: What are we seeing from Leah in Breaking Dawn?
Julia Jones: All my scenes are with Jacob [and] that was such a treat because theyre very intimate scenes, and pretty much until this point all our scenes were like, wolf pack scenes: all of us, running around and saying a few lines and doing a lot of "business." So to actually get to have these scenes that go somewhere, where you care so much about your character because youve been living her for so long, and to really get into what happens with both of them, is rewarding. Im excited to see how that plays out.
Buzz: What was it like at this point being the only girl in the wolf pack?
JJ: It changed. Its very different this time, because the dynamic of the wolf pack changed — Jacob and Leah and Seth sort of break off. It felt a lot more comfortable. Part of why she leaves the pack in the first place is because she feels like she doesnt belong there. She just feels so out of place and constantly trying to prove herself and be one of them, which shes never gonna be; shes not a guy. So when they leave, the dynamic shifts, and its like Im with my best friend and my brother. We just feel like this close, tight-knit family.
Buzz: Youre not in the wedding scene, but did you get to see any of it shot?
JJ: That was tricky for me, because the wedding was shot toward the very end of filming, and literally every character except for me was in the wedding. I got to the point where I just started going to the set to hang out. But it was great; I saw everybody dressed up! Im so glad that I did that, because it was just such a wonderful way to finish filming.
Movies.com: Today is your first time at Comic-Con , and your first exposure to the Twilight fandom at large. What was going through your head on that dais?
Bill Condon: I was praying that nobody booed at the clip, that they would be accepting of it, because that’s like crazy. I’ve been in the editing room, and it’s so cocooned. We haven’t had any test screening. So to show scenes, six to seven minutes of the movie, my heart was beating definitely. But it felt good. I thought it went well.
Movies.com: In the Hall H panel, you talked about how you feel that there is no bigger Twilight fan on the set than Kristen Stewart. Can you expand on that?
Condon: Right from the beginning she was a real collaborator. When I sit down with her with and a draft of the and she says, “God I miss this part not being in,” most of the time we put it right back in. I think she never loses sight of what it was like for her the first time she read Breaking Dawn. She’s reading it as a fan, but also with the responsibility of giving and living up to what is expressed in the books about what Bella is feeling. She becomes an important voice to listen to in all of that. As I said we’d talk about it, then we’d rehearse it, then we’d block it, then we’d come to the day and we would still find some nuisances that we’d want to explore having reread it again the night before.
Playboy: Participating in the Venice Biennale is by invitation only and a big deal. What are the specifics of your project? James FRANCO: It’s a huge project I’m incredibly honored and proud to be presenting. It’s based on Rebel Without a Cause, and some of the best contemporary artists alive—Paul McCarthy, Douglas Gordon, Ed Ruscha, Aaron Young, Damon McCarthy and Harmony Korine—worked on different sections. I wanted Robert Pattinson to be in the project, but when Harmony (Rebels director) contacted him and told him the concept, Rob said, “I don’t get the point,” so that was that.
PLAYBOY: Is it true you wanted to do a Twilight movie? FRANCO: I had my agent tell [director] Bill Condon that I’d be happy to do anything in Breaking Dawn, but that was because it was supposed to be part of a multimedia project at Yale. I was working with a Yale undergraduate who had written an autobiographical play about putting on a theatrical production of Twilight in which I was a character. So I was interested in Twilight because I was going to be part of that play. I thought what a great connection it would be if I were also involved with the real Twilight.
John Singletion - "Abduction kommer bli en stor hitt"
John Singleton är regissör för Taylor Lautners senaste film Abduction. Här pratar han lite om att han tror att Abduction kommer bli en stor hitt...
TR: What are you working on right now?
JS: I have a new movie coming out called Abduction. It’s a spy thriller with the most popular teenage star in the world, Taylor Lautner, who starred in the Twilight pictures. It’s about a teenage kid who finds out his parents aren’t his real parents and his real father is a big dangerous spy. I really can’t tell you too much more, so what is there to say about it but that I know it’s going to be a big hit?
“I really want to see how they’re going to figure out the part where the vampire baby chews its way out of Kristen Stewart’s stomach,” said “New Moon” director, Chris Weitz, when we recently asked him what he’s looking forward to seeing in the final “Twilight Saga” movies.
Chris quipped with a smile, “I certainly wouldn’t know how to shoot that. I’m sure Bill Condon is going to figure it out, because he’s a terrific director.”
As for the future of Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner after “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn” Parts 1 (to be released in November this year) and 2 (next year), here’s Chris’ wish for them: “For the three leads, they’re going to need to handle this last tsunami of publicity and distinguish themselves in other films.”
“With Kristen, she has always done terrific independent-film roles, and that’s great,” said Chris, who also directed the memorable “About a Boy,” “The Golden Compass” and, now, the acclaimed “A Better Life.” “Rob is doing that sort of thing, too,” Chris pointed out. “Rob is filming with David Cronenberg (‘Cosmopolis’) now. Taylor is carving a different path in action films.”
“I want to see them succeed,” Chris stressed. “I want to see them retain their essential humanity. I like them very much. What I also wish for them are happy lives that aren’t impinged on too much by the downside of the great things that have happened to them."
Fan sidan BellaSugar, fick chansen till en eklusiv intervju med New Moon & Eclipses film-sminkör (make Up artist), Leslie Graham:
BellaSugar: You created some of the looks for the vampires in New Moon and Eclipse — who did you look after and what were the key products you used to create their looks?
Leslie Graham: For New Moon I was brought in to be a personal makeup artist for actor Jamie Campbell Bower, who played the role of Caius (one of the leaders of the Voluturi). For Eclipse I did the makeup for all of the Wolfpack [Alex Meraz, Julia Jones and Chaske Spencer], Jodelle Ferland and some of the newborn vampires. On set I would take care of Dakota and the other Volturi. We did a lot of air-brushing using MAC Micronized Airbrushed Formula to give the “onion” skin tone. It has a little silicone in it, which works to keep the makeup in place as we were often working in the woods and in the rain — vampires in the rain can be quite difficult!”
BellaSugar: One of the key looks in the Twilight films is the perfect pale skin — how can we recreate this look without appearing washed out?
LG: I would say go with a colour two to three shades lighter than your own skin tone and apply it with a wide and flat synthetic foundation brush. Make sure you go right down your neck and over your ears and don’t make it too white or too grey — it shouldn’t be "death" makeup, it should be just enough to lighten your own skin tone. Try Revlon Colorstay in a buff, nude or ivory tone, again depending on your skin.
Q:How were you able to get such amazing emotions out of the actors, especially [Jose Julian] – I just read on his page that he’s never done anything like this before. The movie’s so powerful; how did you get the actors to portray that on-screen?
Chris Weitz: Well, I mean Demian Bichir is a big actor in Mexico. He’s been in many movies; he’s incredibly technically accomplished and a brilliant actor so that was never in doubt for me. Of course, when you’re starting with a newcomer, you don’t really know what you’re going to get, but I think the thing that we managed to do was to schedule it so that the scenes which he was being a difficult teen and kind of a pain in the butt were early on, which is kind of easier for a sixteen-year-old actor to go to, and then the more emotional scenes, by the time we got around to shooting that, he had lived in our little circus for you know a couple of months. He had learned from Demian; he had learned how to focus; he had been through all this thinking about things, and so that helped him. And of course acting with Demian when he’s delivering that sort of final speech in the detention center, I would find it hard not to convey a hell of a lot of emotion myself.
Q: Twilight fans obviously, certainly we love our good-looking men and the abs, but we do like more than that, and one of the big themes in the Twilight series is family and relying upon your family. Can you speak to those similar themes in A Better Life?
Chris Weitz: Yeah, well that’s kind of why I started tweeting and why I thought it would . . . why I was really glad you all could see it early . . . because you know it’s not about vampires and werewolves and that sort of thing, but the great thing about Twilight, I think the revelation is that people will go see a movie that concerns itself with emotions, and that is very much about family. I mean, Carlos . . . like Charlie Swan is a great dad, he will always be there for his daughter. Carlos is a character who just keeps his head down and works hard to do everything that he can for his son, and he and his son are at odds because they don’t have the chance to be with each other enough to understand one another, and, you know, part of the interest of the story is that it’s this terrible thing that has happened that allows them to learn more about one another. So, I mean, to me, it’s not so weird that we’re talking together about this. I mean, of course I want as many people as possible to see the movie, but I think that the great thing about the success of the Twilight films is that it’s not just going to be . . . it’s defined sort of the strength of movies about emotions in the marketplace. And that’s kinda what I do, so that’s something I’m very happy about.
Q: With New Moon, I know you were pretty specific about your intent to bring on only First Nation or Native American actors for the wolfpack, and I was wondering if with A Better Life, you required all the actors to be from Mexico or of Mexican descent.
Chris Weitz: Yeah, I did. The reason is that people would tell the difference. You know, for instance . . . there are a couple of reasons I didn’t go after someone like Javier Bardem. Javier Bardem is Spanish, and that’s from the Conquistador culture. Mexicans are from the culture that has been dominated. And also there’s a difference between a Mexican Latino-American and a Salvadoran Latino-American. Just ask them. And they recognize those differences, just in terms of the accents and everything. And we wanted this to be as authentic as possible, so for instance, with the three characters who are supposed to have been born and raised in Mexico, those are all actors who flew up from Mexico in order to . . . those are three big Mexican actors who flew up in order to play those parts. And we’re proud to do so because they were sort of representing the experience of Mexicans who come to this country. And just as I thought it was somehow, I don’t know, karma-cally appropriate to cast First Nation actors in New Moon, it was in this case as well.
What do you make of the current vampire craze? It really shows no sign of abating.
SM: It doesn’t seem to be abating. It’s one of those unanswerable questions because when you think it’s one thing, it turns out to be another. … I think in the teen world, there’s a beautiful romance about that stuff. I believe this year the Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart characters [in the "Twilight" saga] have a baby. It’s this perfect romance, this perfect ideal. Ours isn’t quite as fluffy as that … our characters and the way that Alan works is, as soon as a character has a semblance of happiness, he digs a h*** for them to drive into.
Peter Facinelli - pratar om hur bra Robert & Kristen är på att kunna hantera deras kändisskap!
And hello! You have Twilight. That must be the coolest thing to be a part of. Im having a good time with it. We finished filming four and five. Im excited to have the filming portion of it over and now I can sit back as one of the fans and see how it all comes together.
Do your daughters think you’re so cool because you work with Robert Pattinson? My daughters don’t usually get impressed by people I’ve worked with because they’re just Dad’s friends. I think they’re just enamored I’m part of the whole franchise. Rob is just one of Dad’s friends
Are you amazed at what he and Kristen Stewart have to put up with? I’m very proud of how they’ve handled it. It’s been fun for me to watch them rise to fame the way they have and the way they’ve handled it. When your life is put under a microscope like that it’s very difficult to function and I give them great credit for functioning and living a normal life within the realm of their fame.
Spelar olika mammor - Elizabeth Reaser (ny intervju)
Was playing Charlotte an antidote to playing Esme, the picture of maternal perfection?
ER: That was exactly it. I was fascinated with someone who would behave like that, who was clearly free of inhibitions, who’s okay with herself and is not a perfect mother. Esme is perfect. There’s not a bad word you can say about Esme. She does everything right. She just loves with every ounce of her being, while Charlotte is drunk, walking around in a negligee and tickling her daughter’s underage boyfriend! [Laughs.] I think women who don’t understand boundaries are fascinating. I sort of modeled her after a girlfriend of mine who is the most fun, the most outrageous, life of the party — hang out with her and you will end up in the hot tub at the end of the night. And that’s what I thought about in terms of Charlotte. It was a little bit of a leap for me, that scene in the garden where I tickle Freddie Highmore, because I kept thinking of him as the boy from Finding Neverland. But he’s not a boy. He’s a young man.
Emma Roberts plays your daughter, Sally, but your relationship to her feels more sisterly than it does maternal.
ER: It is more sisterly, more like friends. They’re close. Charlotte sees something in Freddie’s character because she’s been around the block, and she knows that we don’t appreciate those boys when we’re young. She tries to impart that wisdom, but Sally’s not having it. I love how Emma calls me “Mom” offscreen; she even called me on Mother’s Day! We just really hit it off. We ran around the Lower East Side, the meatpacking district. She knows, like, 8 million people! She’s really smart, sophisticated, worldly. She’s like a 45-year-old woman in the body of a 20-year-old.
Did she pepper you with Twilight questions?
ER: Yes! She’s a bit of a Twihard. I remember she was Team Jacob at one point. She definitely played it cool, though. Those movies, I’m always surprised when older kids are obsessed with them. You’d think they’d be too-cool-for-school for them. But the films seem to capture all ages. I’ve met a lot of Twi-Moms. I get a little uncomfortable when they start talking about Taylor Lautner’s body, because I’m like, “He’s a baby! Don’t talk about him like that!” But the movies definitely capture the imagination of even older women. I’m 35, so I guess I would be a Twi-Mom.
You’re too young to be playing all these moms!
ER: Bless you! And I’m not a mom myself. People who don’t know me see me as motherly, for some reason. People who know me, they think it’s really weird that I’m playing the mom.
Vem var din favorit person du mötte på MTV Movie Awards?Jag träffade inte någon direkt, utom Tila Tequila som intervjuade mig, och hon kallade mig en heting så jag gillade det. Det var typ det. Jag var väldigt nära många kända personer. Det är något med Robert Pattinson, du vet vad jag menar va? Jag har egentligen aldrig varit nära honom, men han har fortfarande den där "bra looken". Det är rätt galet, det är typ som "Wow, han ser verkligen ut som en forntida vampyr."

Chris Weitz (NM regissör)-hur skulle HAN göra Nessie?
When you were shooting New Moon, did you think about how on earth you would shoot the birth scene if you had to?
CW: [Laughs] No, I wasnt because I knew that I wasnt going to do Eclipse and I thought, "No way can I figure this one out." I thought, "Well who could do it? David Cronenberg?" I have no idea how theyve managed to get around all of that. I would imagine, you know, since Im a coward it would be a lot of quick cutting, dissolve-y misdirection. I dont know. Its a tough one. Im not sure how I would have figured that out.
Catherine Hardwicke - pratar om Red Riding Hood & Twilight ned Seventeen magazine
CG: Theres a much darker, alternate ending to Red Riding Hood on the DVD. As a director, did you get attached to one particular ending?
CH: I like both endings! Theyre very different. If I had it my way, I would have had one ending in one theater and one in another.
CG: What draws you to these dark, fantasy movies, like Twilight and Red Riding Hood?
CH: When I read the Twilight book, I didnt see it as fantasy. I saw it as a love story. I really wanted to create that feeling of being madly in love with someone. With Red Riding Hood, there was whole different feel. Although there is that sense of falling in love, its different than Bella and Edwards relationship. Valerie gets suspicions of the person she loves, which is a very real theme. Sometimes youre looking at someone you love your whole love and think, "Could they have a secret?" Maybe you dont think your boyfriend is a murder, but youre wondering if hes cheating behind your back!
CG: You were originally interested in casting Shiloh Fernandez as the role of Edward in Twilight. What made you go back to him for Red Riding Hood?
CH: I liked him when he did the auditions for Twilight, but Rob and Kristen had more chemistry, which is something you just cant fake. Ive always believed my leading lady should have a say in who plays opposite her. I wanted Amanda [Seyfried] to be very involved with the person she was supposed to be in love with on screen. We had a bunch of guys come in to read with Amanda, but her and Shiloh just hit it off best!
CG: What do you want to do next—what does your dream project look like?
CH: My first movie, Thirteen, and it was very real-almost too real. It was very gritty, with raw human emotion. Id love to do something like that again. I have a project in the works that would be something like that. I cant say the name yet, but my fingers are crossed. It would shoot in Europe and would be a character piece.
Exklusiv intervju av Twilightish - Lisa Howard (Siobhan)
Twilightish: Being a newcomer to the Twilight Saga, how was it joining this tight group of friends?
Lisa: Everyone was very welcoming. We had fun on and off the set.
Twilightish: Famous Fandom Question: Did you read the books or see the movies before you went for the part of Siobhan? If not did you read them when you received the part? If so, were you a fan of the series before?
Lisa: I was a HUGE Twilight Fan before I auditioned for the role of Siobahn. I ,of course, had read all four books and was so excited just to get an audition. When I actually got the role, I just about died!
Twilightish: Siohan is quite a strong willed character, (she even suspects that she can effect the outcome of a situation by willpower alone!). How did you go about forming her character for the big screen?
Lisa: To get into my character, I re-read Breaking Dawn and I watched all the prior Twilight movies. I tried to be as familiar with the world that Stephanie Meyers created as I could. Then on set, my costume, hair and make-up really helped transport me into that world. Who couldn’t feel like a vampire with those red eyes!
Twilightish: Did you find instant chemistry with your on-screen mate Liam (played by Patrick Brennan)?
Lisa: Yes, he’s a great guy. Maggie (played by Marlane Barnes) and Liam and I spent a lot of time together on set, you get close with everybody.
Twilightish: Would you like to see spin off movies for the Saga? Perhaps an Irish Coven movie?
Lisa: Of course! That would be so fun J.
Twilightish: Do you have a favorite moment from your time on set? Either on camera or off camera?
Lisa: My favorite time on set was the first night I shot a scene. It was an all night shoot and we were out in the middle of the woods and they made it snow. It was very surreal.
Michael Sheen - "He’s a fascinating character (Aro)"
Your character in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn is seen as the villain, but he’s really much more complicated, sinister and self-serving than that. How do you perceive that character?
SHEEN: Well, what I love about that character is that I think he’s totally insane. Immortality – living forever – has driven him completely insane, or certainly into an area of sanity that is not really accessible to most people, and yet, part of his insanity is that he thinks that he’s a sentimental, little old lady. He thinks he’s this cuddly grandmother, somehow. In a way, he keeps himself interested in life and people around him by playing this weird game with himself where he role plays and it amuses him to think of himself as being someone who just enjoys watching young people enjoying themselves. He’s like, “Oh, it’s so lovely. I cry at romantic films.” There’s that kind of persona that he has, when actually he just wants to kill people and eat them. It’s this weird game that he plays. So, I love that. There are a lot of places to explore with that. Underneath it is this insane animal, but on the surface is this very sophisticated, cultured, sentimental character. I just think he’s great. I love it!
Do you feel like he always has a personal agenda and that he doesn’t do anything unless it’s self-serving?
SHEEN: Yeah. He’s incredibly intelligent. The viewpoint that he has is from someone who has been alive for centuries upon centuries, and so he sees things in a very different way. He’s a great chess player, in that respect. He’s lots of moves ahead of everyone. It’s all a game that he plays and enjoys. He’s a fascinating character.
Because there’s not a lot of information on Aro, did you get any tips from Stephenie Meyer about playing him?
SHEEN: I took what Stephenie had written, and there was enough there to get my imagination going. There were enough things there to explore. And then, I wanted someone to tell me, “Actually, no, that’s not an area that’s appropriate for this character,” but on the whole, until that happened, I just kept going. Stephenie was always very supportive. I really enjoyed just letting it go and develop, and go further. Thankfully, no one told me to stop.
Twilightish: Being a newcomer to the Twilight Saga, how was it joining this tight group of friends?
Judi: I didnt know what it would be like coming into a movie where people had already shot 3 films. Its amazing. They have new people coming into every film, theyre used to it. It was great working with people who are established and know what is going on.
Twilightish: The Famous Fandom Question: Did you read the books or see the movies before you went for the part of Zafrina? If so, were you a fan of the series before?
Judi: I was already a big fan of Twilight. Waited for each book to be released, and read all four years ago. I knew about the project (film). I was a fan from the beginning when Kristen was announced as Bella. I love the series.
Twilightish: If you could (or did) take one prop or costume piece of Zafrina, what would it (or what was it) and why?
Judi: Contact lenses! Id wear them at night and scare people! You really cant stop staring at yourself. Makes me less me and more of the character. I felt more animal. More in character.
How it shines! Its my first thought when I, a reporter for Bravo met Robert Pattinson for an interview in Berlin. The 25-year, seems to have much luck. Perhaps because of his girlfriend Kristen Stewart (21). They seem so relaxed when they are together. Just happy! How they do it? So thats the perfect relationship.
Would you fall for someone who just friendship? No. Absolutely not. I do not think that friendship can be a great love. As one of the two often feels different.
You mean you often feel that it is not enough ... Exactly. It is this: If you were friends before, so the girl thinks you can find someone better or boy [think so].
Yes I know so. I just spend time with the girls that I was also attracted. So I had to decide whether to go out with me or not.
How do you know a girl you like? Did you just ask him? In the initial phase, it may not be as easy as you might say, "not me." Better relax. Wait. It is the best way.
Is age difference a problem for you? Not at all. Whether you are in love - even if she is 95 [years]. No matter what others think, about other peoples feelings are genuine.
Good keywords. If your friends talk bad about your relationship? I would never say anything bad. But who knows what will happen if one day we parted. Can complain: "Juhu, shes gone always wanted to tell: the hated" (laughs).
Tell me when you get to know your girlfriend, and remain in a relationship. How do you think of dating someone who is not free? It is a horrible situation because you have the impression that they destroy a relationship. But it happens that a relationship is about to end. And then suddenly someone new enters your life and you can not control your emotions.
Share the same interests or opposites attract: What makes your life easier? I think the longer they are together become more similar. But you must not go too far. Just love so hard and kept moving.
Where is the limit. You say: "No, we can be together"? If she is bad with my dog. (Laughs) But for the rest? There are problems in any relationship. Only the lie could be the end.
Tell me an example! If she said nasty things about my friend and I hurt. Lies will always come to light. Therefore: Do not!.
But secrets are safe? Sure! I think the secret is very important.
People always say to be honest! I do not know. In a relationship, it is important to be diplomatic and say very cruel things. Total honesty can lead to separation. And it is wrong: You should never control your phone from your partner. It is terrible! It may never end up with something good.
Your path to happiness? Confidence! If one is destined to be together, then it will happen.
Michael Sheen - "I would imagine it’s quite a difficult balance to strike"
What can you say about what you’ll be doing in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn?
SHEEN: It’s the same part that I played before – Aro.
Was there anything you got to discover in playing him this time around, that you hadn’t learned the last time you played him?
SHEEN: He’s more of a presence in these films than he was in New Moon, so I got to explore the character a bit more and probably fleshed it out a bit more. I don’t think that there’s anything that I learned. I just was able to go into the insanity of the character a bit more. I got to show what’s under the surface a bit more this time, which was fun.
How was Bill Condon to work with, as a director?
SHEEN: Bill was wonderful. He was terrific. He’s a very, very friendly, warm person. He obviously has a very varied and interesting body of work, and brought that to bear. He made everyone feel very comfortable. It must be quite hard, coming onto a film where people have already been together for a long time. Each film is a different director and you think, “What’s this one going to be like?” But, everyone really warmed to him and thought he was terrific. I think he did a really good job. It was a huge organizational thing. We had something like 40 new characters being introduced in this film, and the big battle scene took about four or five weeks to film. It was a huge undertaking, and he handled it brilliantly.
When a new director comes on and you already know the characters from having done previous films, do you feel like you know the characters more than the director, or does each director really bring something new out of you?
SHEEN: Personally, I was only on New Moon for two weeks, so it’s not like I got used to it. But, for the other actors, there’s probably a wariness about, “Is this person going to come along and not really get what it is we’re doing, or are they going to try to change it too much?” For a director coming on board, I would imagine there’s the pressure of wanting to make your mark and be different to what other people have done, but at the same time, not wanting to go against the flow of the whole series. I would imagine it’s quite a difficult balance to strike, but everyone seemed very happy on it and seemed to enjoy working with Bill.
Lastly, regarding Snow White and the Huntsman: Have you yet met with Kristen Stewart? Sam: No!
So there was no chemistry read, you were cast separately for your roles? Sam: No, but from my understanding she seems like an absolute legend of a girl. I have a friend who worked with her, my friend Eddie Redmayne, and he says she’s really down to earth, really talented. She’s so talented, I’m a big fan of hers. So fingers crossed there’ll be chemistry. But no, I didn’t have the opportunity to meet her, which is a bit of a shame.
"Jag hade en bra tid under Twilight" - Michael Sheen
MichaelSheen (aka Aro) medger att det är bittert att filmningen är över och det kommer bli en stor "inställning" för alla skådespelare.

Ny intervju med Billy Burke (aka Charlie) - Twilightish
Twilightish: Hur känns det att se slutet av Twilight Sagan? Är du glad att ni är klara och att du kan fortsätta?
Billy: Det är konstigt, du vet? För det är typ som en TV-Show för de tre senaste åren. Det var en jämn inspelnings tid för mig, du vet? Jag kan inte säga att jag är hjärt-krossad om det men det var en bra inspelning för mig. Jag är lite på gränsen om hur jag känner mig. Jag tror det har sprungit förbi såklart, och vi som artister och skådespelare har fått ut allt vi vill ifrån det. Är alltid glad att förtsätta. Jag har ingen aning om vad som kommer komma att hända mig här näst.
Twilightish: Önskar du fler filmer av Twilight Sagan?
Billy: Nej, nej jag önskar inga fler Twilight filmer. Blir det för mycket utöver detta, skulle det bli för mycket press.
Twilightish: När du tittar tillbaka på Twilight, skulle du vilja göra om det igen?
Billy: Självklart! Absolut! Faktiskt, njöt jag av att spela Charlie (Swan). Jag gillade honom!
Twilightish: Har du någon favorit stund från en av de 5 filmerna? På duken, och utanför?
Billy: Jag tror mina favorit stunder är på gång i de 2 kommande filmerna, jag kan inte säga hur de är men de kommer!
Twilightish: Fann du något känslomässigt i när du skulle se Bella gifta sig?
Billy: Vet du vad? Det var inte så mycket så att det var känslomässigt. De dagar vi spelade in bröllopet, ärligt talat, var det någonting som höjde något inte bara i mig, i de andra personerna on set. Något som var "känslomässigt". Vi slutade med att säga "Det här är lite knäppt, eller hur?". Jag kan inte förklara hur det var, det var inte som om min dotter skulle gifta sig, men det var definitivt något rörande som var på gång.
Audiences saw a whole new side of Ashley Greene this weekend as her 80s-set coming-of-age flick "Skateland" rolled into theaters. The 24-year-old actress will continue to keep busy during the latter part of 2011, with movies like "LOL," co-starring Miley Cyrus, and "A Warriors Heart" slated for release. And then, of course, theres "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1" hitting theaters November 18.
When we got on the phone a few months back to talk to Greene about "Skatetown," she was in the midst of final shoots for the "Twilight Saga" finale and preparing to say goodbye to the cast shes spent the last four years with.
"Its fun to go to work every day, but its kind of bittersweet," she said. "Its sad, because I feel like its high school or something. Weve been doing it for so long."
Yet Greene considers it a boon to have worked with director Bill Condon on the final installments. "Working with Bill Condon makes it kind of the cherry on top, because hes so excited and hes incredible at what he does," she enthused.
And, lest we forget, the two-part "Breaking Dawn" will roll out over the next couple of years, giving the cast plenty of opportunities to see each other, even as stars Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner continue to book high-profile projects.
"For two years, were going to have these movies coming out and press tours and all that stuff, and premieres. So the nice thing about that is that we know we are going to see each other over the next two years. Its not as hard to finish out the franchise."
The first time I met Robert Pattinson, a few months shy of the release of Twilight in 2008, he strolled into the lobby of the Beverly Hills hotel completely unnoticed. No one had the slightest notion that his character, the charismatic vampire Edward Cullen, would soon prevent him from sustaining any kind of normality come the release of the film. He said back then, "I still havent decided if acting is going to be my career. I dont know if its going to work out. Who knows if people will go and see this movie?"
As we know, this would turn out to be an understatement of epic proportions. This afternoon, three years later, were in the same hotel but with a few changes to the scenery. Two burly bodyguards stand protectively outside his door, a couple of hundred paparazzi wait in the street and a horde of teenage girls are ready to stampede.
Life hasnt turned out the way Pattinson expected. Reminding him of what he said previously, he laughs: "You know, seriously, I just never thought Id have that kind of effect on anyone and I still dont really understand it."
He admits to mixed feelings about saying goodbye to Edward Cullen.
"Ill be very glad not to put those contacts in anymore or have to put on the sparkling makeup, but I will really miss the character. I do love the guy. I feel like I know him pretty well now."
Much ado has been made of his Twilight co-star, Kristen Stewart, and the nature of their offscreen relationship. Both have remained tight-lipped on the subject and have never made any public declarations, although there are numerous photographs, shot all over the world, documenting their romance.
In Breaking Dawn, their characters Edward and Bella marry and have a child. One of the most pivotal scenes is the birth of the couples baby and turning Bella into a vampire.
"It was insane, intense," he says of the scene, explaining that Edward can either lose Bella or give her a bite and thus immortality. "It was a pretty traumatic scene for me to do as an actor and, frankly, horrible for me emotionally. Edward has tried for so long not to turn Bella into a vampire and now ... well, its very sad. He feels like he has let her down."
Sam Clafin - "Jag är ett fan av Robert och Kristen"
Den brittiska skådespelaren Sam Clafin ska spela prinsen i Kristen Stewarts film Snow White (andthehuntsman). I intervjun med Screenrant, pratade han om kärleken mellan prinsen och Snövit, om Robert, Kristen och Twilight...
"Jag har faktiskt bara sett den första filmen (Twilight), och det är inte för att jag inte är ett fan, det är bara för att.. jag... jag njöt av den första filmen och jag är ett fan av Robert Pattinson och Kristen Stewart och de andra casten. Så, med de nya filmerna som kommer ut (Breaking Dawn part1&2), så ser jag framemot att se dem som en helhet."
"I hope if I ever have to deal with fame I handle it with the grace that Taylor Lautner does. He had 600 girls waiting outside the set for him one night and we didn’t finish filming until about 5am but he still went out for over an hour and signed all the autographs and posed for photographs. He’s extremely handsome and I like a guy who isn’t afraid to be himself. A sense of humor is important and I like someone who is confident and can show vulnerability as well as being strong."
Ny intervju med Robert - hans "vampyr-karriär" & W.F.E
You have a very special relationship with Spain, even lived in Barcelona for the filming of No limits, which were playing Salvador Dalí ...
True, here I have always been very well received. Barcelona keep a good memory, but if you ask me now you do not really say where was the apartment I stayed for several weeks. The team of No limits was mostly Spanish, only two or three spoke English and treated me very well. That film was part of the shift in my career. I keep a very good memory of the experience.
After finishing the filming of the saga Twilight, can you change urgently concerned about image?
In fact, I never worried how the public sees me, what picture is of my audience. We must also take into account that the films Twilight sees very different people. For example, over 25 do not perceive them as teenagers, they are screaming at premieres. According birthday, you will also mature and like other things. The same thing happened to me as an actor.
So from now we will see a more mature actor, a Pattinson she gets older?
Like I said before, the least of my worries right now is doing things to the gallery. Many actors when they finish a stage in his career, as is happening to me right now to me, make the mistake of denying their past, to attack everything became so popular. I do not want to fall into that.
Have you lost a role because you were considered too cute to interpret?
I do not think (laughs) I have other excuses, but Im too handsome. The truth is that people began to see me beautiful from the premiere of Twilight. Had previously played other roles, and had never heard of my beauty. You look beautiful is a matter of fashion.
Is it true that youve reduced your cache to be, along with Reese Witherspoon and Christoph Waltz, in the casting of "Water for Elephants?
Thats right. And I think it has nothing wrong to admit it. Usually the best salaries often come with the worst jobs ... (Laughs).
During the promotion of New Moon suggested the possibility to take a sabbatical this idea is he still hanging around your head?
The truth is that what I valued seriously. I thought when hed just shoot all the chapters in the saga I would, but ... now is not the right time, I showered and projects is not the time to stop.
So much weight you have to endure to be Edward Cullen, the most famous vampire movies?
Is that character very well and I owe a lot. But now I had to get rid of many bonds and break down many barriers in order to become free, to behave like a normal actor. Playing a human being is very rewarding, much more than being a vampire!
Youve said on occasion that your great passion as well as the film is music, do you plan to devote a future singing career?
I have no thought about it. I like it, keep working and writing. Ill settle for writing some songs (it did for the soundtrack of Eclipse).
So, for the moment, focused 100% on your acting career ...
Of course, as the promotion end of Water for Elephants I will travel to Canada to begin filming Cosmopolis, under the command of David Cronenberg. This project is part of my intention to mature as actor, director for the character and history that we can talk to an author and film that, now, brings me a lot.
Moviefon: Youve worked with Kristen Stewart before, and now Jennifer Lawrence in this film. What are your thoughts on young female actors today, and how does that compare to your earlier days in film?
Jodie Foster: These actresses are amazing. Theyre great, and their feet are firmly entrenched in drama, which is very nice to see. It is definitely an answer to all those people who say being a young actress in Hollywood will make you crazy. These are very well-adjusted people were talking about. Their experiences will be very different from mine; it was a different world when I was growing up. News and entertainment were two different compartments, you didnt have the mad reality show mentality about celebrities then, and actresses that were 17 or 18 werent really worth a lot, financially. Its only recently that young actresses have become a hot commodity in film..
Rob pratar om djur, slutet av Twilight & bröllopsscenen - Glamour Magazine UK
Your character Jacob is a natural with animals but are you and did you have pets growing up? Rob: I just had a dog growing up so I don’t know if I’m a natural with anything. I like animals a lot. I’ve never really… I’m very trusting in them. I trust them more than I trust people. I think there is some kind of connection in that.
Reese got to go to circus school. Were you jealous and what circus trick would you learn if you could? Rob: I’d love to learn how to juggle. I’m physically incapable of juggling. It’s very annoying. Circus school is tough. I mean she had to go there every day. And they’re really hard on the performers. I mean it’s like a bootcamp. I was really glad I didn’t have to do anything. I was like, I’m not a performer. I don’t know anything about the circus. My part doesn’t involve anything so it was great. I just got to hang out with animals for my part. It was very simple.
Was it surreal seeing yourself as an old man? Rob: Yeah definitely. I’m curious as to whether that is what I’m going to look like. I love the fact that Hal…[stomach grumbles] my stomach will not shut up…that Hal is so in demand as an actor at 84 years old. It’s insane. It’s an incredible life.
Would you still like to be doing it then? Rob: I don’t know. I’d love to be in demand for something. I just have a feeling that I’m going to be one of those crazy old people that not even their own family want to see.
We had the Royal Wedding this weekend. Did you celebrate it at all? Rob: I was in Paris working and I was doing these interviews and the TV was behind the interviewer so I was watching it. I was surprised how interesting I thought it was. It was nice to see everyone look so happy in England. Because everyone normally looks so miserable walking down the street and you see everyone waving their flags. It looks very sweet.
You’re coming to the end of filming Twilight. Do you think you’ll hang out with the cast afterwards? Rob: I really hope so. It’s such a big part of our lives. I get on with everyone really well. Literally everyone in the cast I’m great friends with. So I would hope so. I can’t imagine not doing that. I mean, especially in LA. I mean most of my closest friends in America are people I worked on Twilight with.
You’ve been voted Most Stylish Man 2011 by GLAMOUR readers. Do you see yourself as a style icon? Rob: It’s funny because I think I do. But no one who knows me notices. There are a lot of different things that I do. I swear a lot of people repeat my little gimmicks. Or maybe I’m completely insane. I used to mis… [Rob suddenly stops] do up my shirt buttons wrong and I see a lot of people doing that now.
BBC Speaking ahead of the release of his new movie Water For Elephants, the British actor told Newsbeat that hed much rather do romcoms.
"If you want to do big movies you have to do either big action explosion movies or you do romances because theyre the only things that get made," he said. "I think romances allow you to develop a character more. I hate working with computerised stuff. Its incredibly boring."
Pattinson, who rose to fame after playing the role of vampire Edward Cullen in the Twilight franchise, also had a dig at action films saying although he likes watching them, theyre boring to make.
He said: "If theyre just well written [Id consider an action movie] but its not good writing most of the time. I enjoy watching them but it would be boring to do. Youve basically got to do it if you want to be famous."
In Water For Elephants, the 24-year-old British actor plays a vet who runs away with a circus and falls in love with one of the performers, played by Reese Witherspoon.
He admitted that he decided to do the film after meeting the elephant used in the production. "I met the elephant before I accepted the movie and before Id read the ," he said "It really was [the deal breaker].
"I remember going home in the car waiting to read the and I was like, Please, please be good. "Id basically already decided to do the movie not knowing anything about it just because I got on really well with the elephant and thought it was really fun."
Breaking Dawn The actor also revealed that filming for the final Twilight films, Breaking Dawn parts one and two, has now finished. "Im sure we will have to do something," he said. "We finished a week and a half ago. All done. Yeah, she (Kristen Stewart) loved that [wedding] scene. Its a very girly scene. I do quite a few scenes with a baby and thats quite odd. Its so different in those movies because we were doing it with a real baby. But it was fun."
Q: How did you like all the 80s details in the film, particular your hair and costumes?
AG: They were very fun, certainly a departure from anything Ive ever known. Im very I think simple in my fashion, my hair and makeup and all of that stuff. I mean, it was fun. I looked exactly like my mother which was the funny part. I sent my mom pictures and her and my dad were like, This is crazy and uncanny. So it was fun to be able to do. Honestly, when else am I going to be able to wear blue eye shadow.
Q: Your character is the kind of music aficionado in this movie. What kinds of music did you end up appreciating and liking as a result of this movie?
AG: As much as I hate to admit I didnt really know who The Cure was. I know, I know, but I do now. I do now. The director made me a compilation. I think that I had twelve CDs of 80s music. So The Cure was definitely one. I think Joy Division was another big one that I kind of now have an appreciation for. But I was sadly not well versed in 80s music before I did the film.
Q: It wasnt the Totally 80s compilation set was it?
AG: No, it wasnt. It was a bunch of burned CDs.
Q: In what ways was Michelle, your character, like you and in what ways do you think youre different from her?
AG: Im definitely hardheaded and I think of myself as a strong girl. Im kind of no nonsense as well. Im driven. Right out of high school I moved to L.A. to kind of pursue my dreams and do what I wanted to do, and of course had the plan and path to go to college like everyone else and then decided that if I didnt do this I was going to regret it. So I kind of bit the bullet and did it. I think theres a lot of similarity there. I think differences are probably how much shes into music. I dont know that I wouldve had as much patience as she did with Ritchie Wheeler. I think that might not be one of my strong points. So thats kind of a difference between she and I.
Q: Can you talk about working with Shiloh Fernandez? You two have great chemistry in the film.
AG: It was really, really fun working with Shiloh. It was fun and easy. I kind of knew from the chemistry read that it was going to be great and easy from the second that we started bantering and working back and forth. We butted heads a few times on set, but I actually have an appreciation for that because were both artists and I think that we both, in the same scene, sometimes have different views on our characters and what we would do. I actually really appreciated that because wed butt heads and then wed come to an understanding and go from there. I think that we actually learned some things about ourselves and our characters in the process, but hes still a very close friend of mine and it was a really positive thing that I took out of the film.
Q: At what point did you film Skateland in the Twilight series? Was it before or after the second one?
AG: It was before, right before New Moon. It was a while ago. This is something that I filmed like two years ago.
Q: The after-effects of the earthquake and tsunami in Japan temporarily halted filming of "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn" in Canada’s Vancouver area. What’s the latest update on the filming?
AG: Everything kind of got turned upside down and inside out. We got the least of the brunt of things. We have to be thankful for that. But really, it’s more about that we had to pick up and move to a different location and switch scenes around, but we are certainly moving forward and carrying on. It’s not really going to affect the film too harshly.
Q: Do you have any comment on the disasters that have hit Japan?
AG: I’ve certainly voiced my opinion — as have a lot of my other friends — about raising money for Japan and being with them and praying for them, because I think it’s something unpredictable and horrible and unexpected and really unfortunate and heartbreaking. I certainly send out my prayers and my thoughts to the people and to their loved ones and lost ones. And hopefully, we as Americans are going to do everything we can to help them rebuild.
Q: Did you and Shiloh ever get a chance to talk about working with Catherine Hardwicke, even though he made Little Red
Riding Hood long after this film, what she was like?
AG: Yeah. Shiloh was actually one of the frontrunners for Twilight and so whenever we were doing Skateland we certainly had discussions about her and I think that we kind of have the same opinion on her, that shes just fantastic. Shes wild and crazy and eccentric and very fun to work with. He kind of after the Twilight process remained friends and in contact with Catherine and I know that she really did like Shiloh for the film and he didnt just quite fit. So I think its really cool that it did come back around and that he was able to work with her on Red Riding Hood.
Q: Have you seen the film?
AG: I havent seen it, no. I really want to. I mean, it looks very cool and beautiful. Im going to see it, absolutely, and kind of support him. Im very excited for him that he finally got to get out there and do something.
Q: What about working with a writer/director on this film. Does it make it easier when you have questions on the film, working with Anthony Burns on this?
AG: Definitely. He kind of had all the answers and because it was kind of based on their adolescence and they grew up in this small town. Some of these characters, the character that I played is actually a person that exists that they know, who I met while I was filming Skateland. So, yeah, thats definitely helpful and they know everything.
Tinsel Korey may not be a familiar name (yet!) but this Canadian singer/actress has made a mark in the indie scene, appearing in films like "Mothers and Daughters", "Hybrid", It Waits", "The Lookout" and of course, the big one - "The Twilight Saga", as Emily Young, fiancee to the werewolf leader.
We spoke to the 31-year-old about the appeal of Twilight (she made a good point that its probably all the hot guys!) and her music career, plus an upcoming movie with Kevin Sorbo ("Hercules").
When you first heard about Twilight, did you have any idea it would turn out to be this successful?
When my little sister brought it my attention, Twilight had just been released on film. So I didnt know how popular it was, it wasnt everywhere like how it is now. I actually dont think it was released internationally at that point yet.
Have you read the Twilight books? What do you think is the appeal about vampires and shape shifters, especially the ones that fall in love with humans!
I have read the books. I think regardless of supernatural element; its about love. And it was the first fantasy movie that was directed towards a female audience. Actually you know what I think the actual appeal is...its the hot guys! Joke...
Your character Emily Young is heavily scarred in the movies. How long was the makeup process and was it tedious to go through?
I had three different make-up teams for each movie Ive been in. The longest it ever took was 8 hours and the shortest was 2 hours. Its a process; Im the first one in the make-up chair and the last one out. You just learn to meditate and understand its part of the process. As long as it looked good, thats all that mattered to me.
Switching gears: Breaking Dawn. I know you’re on set, how does it feel winding it down?
It’s been a whirlwind. We’ve been filming for six months. You take it day by day. I feel good about what we’ve shot. Now it’s up to the editor, and I hope it all comes out well. At the end of the day, it’s hard because you don’t have control over how it’s put together. But I’ve seen some put together, and it looks pretty good. I’m excited to see the finished product.
Anything you can tease to us about it? I hear the wedding scene is grand.
The wedding scene, first of all, was really beautiful. The way the set was decorated, the way they lit it. It’s in the backyard of the Cullen house, and they utilized the space really well. For us as actors, it was hard because it was raining the whole time we shot, but you’ll never see it on film. For us, it was raining and muddy, but on film, it will look beautiful. In the baseball sequence [from the first movie], it rained the whole time, but you can’t tell.
How did you magically stay dry?
It’s very difficult. I remember the first day [on the first film], we were in the midst of shooting, and they said [to the director Catherine Hardwicke], ‘”What do you want to do Catherine?” So they started passing out baseball hats to anyone whose hair looked too wet. It was movie magic; you never see it. It has to rain really hard for it to read on film.
Give me a visual tease of the wedding, for the wedding geeks, like yours truly.
It looks very magical. It was a real treat to be able to watch the two of them get married. It was a longtime coming, this wedding. It didn’t disappoint me when we shot it, so I think it will be magical.
Donna Scott has a role millions of women would kill for in Water for Elephants. As bawdy burlesque dancer Barbara, she initiates Robert Pattinsons character into the circus — sexually! We chatted with the mother of two and wife of director Tony Scott this weekend, just before she headed out to the theater to see the movie for the first time. She talked about shooting under the big top with Robert and Reese Witherspoon, how Robs family helps him handle his unprecedented fame, and filming her slightly awkward sexy scene with him! She also told us about training with a tassel-twirling expert for her risqué role, and what happened when a trio of zebras got loose on set and sent her, Reese, Rob, and Christoph Waltz ducking for cover.
Tell us a little bit about your character, Barbara. Shes a sideshow coochie dancer, a burlesque dancer, definitely targeted to the male audience going to the circus in the 1930s. There was one part [of the circus] that was for the family, and the other was the sideshow.
Was Rob nervous for your kissing scene? Just a little bit. It’s really funny, because Rob is so...Rob. And even though he’s a huge heartthrob movie star, he’s so genuine. I figured since he was a megastar that he’d be like, Yeah, ok, and I saw that because I’m older and lived a lot more life, I was comfortable being way more forward than he was. So, I definitely was aware that it was genuine, and that when I would move in to kiss him, he’d be like Whoa! He was genuinely shy and it was all fantastic. How we prepared was just stepping into it and doing it. [He played] naïve and deflowered!
How does Rob rate as a leading man and kisser? Rob, on a scale of one to ten, is a ten. He’s got luscious lips, and he’s so sweet, and he’s a tender person. (WHOA!! Died a little...ok, moving on)
Reese told a story about Rob running scared from the zebras on set. Is that true? After Reese had injured her ankle and when Rosie ran off, we were shooting this scene where it was just Reese, myself, Christoph, and Rob, and there were three zebras staked right near us. They’re very high strung, and they were going crazy and pulling up the stakes. Rob went running away and Reese grabbed Christoph and put him in front of her as a human body shield, and she was like; Oh my god, I don’t know what I just did! And I was behind one of the support poles, and it happened so fast, it was really funny. But Rob was running away because he was supposed to be leaving to do something in the scene, so I think he didn’t want to break character. He felt so bad. He was like, Everyone is going to think I ran away because I was scared!
Rob actually has to cross-dress for a particularly funny scene in the movie. How did he handle that? I think he was genuinely really shy about coming out of that trunk. It was pretty funny for him to come crawling out with all of us eating our breakfast. And no one had seen him in his outfit, because his double was in there the whole time they were setting up. So when he came out of the trunk all the response to him was genuine. I think his response was genuine, too. He was really embarrassed!
Was there a lot of fandemonium near the set for Rob? Every day. It was insane to me, because where we were shooting was so remote. We were an hour and a half outside of LA in these huge orange groves, and we’d be shooting nights, and when I’d leave work 4:00, 5:00, 6:00 in the morning there would be unbelievable amount of women in a ditch across the shooting area waiting for Rob. They didn’t leave. I was blown away. I’ve never seen that level commitment from fans until I saw all that.
How does he deal with that remarkable level of attention? It’s remarkable how he deals with it. He deals with it immensely well, and I also think he can’t believe what’s going on. I think he stays really grounded, and I think he views it from a point of view of, Is this really happening in my life? And all of the craziness around him and Kristen, I think they navigate it immensely well in how he handles situations. He’s so close to his family and they’re so grounded, his mom and his dad and his sisters, so I think that helps him. And the maturity. Hes very well educated and very well read, but it’s lovely that he can be that mature.
Cat: Welcome! You are joining Cat &Emma on The Daily Twimes. You can find us at blogspot.dailytwimes.com or on twitter at dailytwimes. Today, we are chatting across the globe in Wisconsin, the U.K… and in L.A. we have the very talented, Guri Weinberg, who plays Stefan in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn.
Guri: Hi! [waves]
Cat: Thank you Guri for joining us!
Guri: Thanks for inviting me!
Emma: So… what was your reaction after you were cast in Breaking Dawn and who was the first person you told?
Guri: Well, I was ecstatic. My managers assistant is a HUGE Twilight fan, so she kept screaming into the phone while I got the news. I told my wife first. My wife was happy I got to FINALLY play a vampire. I had always wanted to play a vampire.
Cat: Your wife has great taste! Now, were you already interested in the Twilight Saga before you got the part? Had you read the books or watched the movies?
Emma: Apart from homework!
Guri: I didnt know too much about the Twilight series before I got the role. In fact, when the part first came up, I told my manager I didnt think I was right for it. My managers assistant called me saying, "Its TWILIGHT, Guri. Not only will you audition but you BETTER get the role! I WANT TO MEET STEPHENIE!!!"
Emma: Haha brilliant!
Cat: You are such a giving person for taking the role for your managers assistant, haha!
Guri: Well, all the film breakdown said was "Breaking Dawn". Not being "in the loop", I didnt know it was a Twilight film. So, naturally, I was very happy to audition.
Emma: So REALLY out of the loop then!!
Guri: Pretty out of the loop. I am just NOT that cool...
Cat: Oh, stop!
Emma: [laughs] Stephenie is producing on Breaking Dawn, so you got to meet her?
Guri: Oh, yes. I met Stephenie when we did our make-up/wardrobe screen tests before filming began. She was also there throughout filming. We immediately "clicked". Shes a really down to earth person and put me at ease right away. I was a little nervous to see how she felt about me in costume and make-up. When she saw me, she told me that it was exactly how she pictured Stefan. I was pretty happy about that.
Emma: That is really amazing to hear! I mean for you to hear from her.
Although he couldnt go into too much detail, we asked Facinelli to describe the heavily hyped wedding scene for us.
"Beautiful and spectacular," he said. "Its funny, because whenever we have a big important scene on Twilight [movies], it rains. I was doing the baseball sequence [from Twilight], and it was raining. But you never see it on film," he said of the filmmaking crews movie magic. "With this wedding, it rained the whole time we shot the two scenes. But youll never see it on film, they block out the rain. They put tarps up and youll never see it. But for us, it was very wet and muddy and cold."
Fans fick chansen att ställa frågor till PeterFacinelli (aka Dr. Cullen). Här svarar han på frågorna:
Comment From Calista: What is the best part of being part of the twilight saga??
Peter Facinelli: The fans are really great. They’ve been really supportive and I appreciate all of them.
Comment From Kimberly: how are you and carlisle similar and different?
Peter Facinelli: I like to think I have his passion. Carlisle is the head of a family. I have children so I can relate. I don’t have blond hair and he’s an older soul than I am. I also don’t wear cardigan sweaters in real life.
Comment From Onix: What will you miss most now that you are finishing the Twilight Saga?
Peter Facinelli: I don’t know, I’m not sure because it hasn’t sunk in that’s it’s over yet. Even though filming is pretty much over there are still two more films coming out. What I won’t miss is shooting in the rain and mud!
Comment From Stefanie: What is one of the funniest things that has happened on set of one of the Twilight movies?
Peter Facinelli: We were shooting a big stand-off sequence between the Volturi’s and the Cullen’s and it was a crazy experience because we had 100 people going through hair and makeup in the morning. One of the actors thought it would be funny if we had a dance off. We didn’t tell the director and when they yelled action we broke out in dance. It could end up on the DVD extras.
Sorry, ladies. In the daylight, Robert Pattinsons skin does not sparkle like diamonds. Hes not even unusually pale. The closest he gets to his dreamy-vampire persona is when, during the course of conversation, he absently tousles his hair into something like his undead do. Perhaps the most surprising thing about Mr. Hunky Bloodsucker in person is how soft-spoken he is.
Why we care: The "Twilight" movies have been sort of popular (nearly $800 million in domestic box office, about $1.8 billion worldwide), making the 24-year-old the highest-paid British actor in 2010, according to Vanity Fair. Thats the magazine, not the movie that dissed him in his screen almost-debut. The two-part sexy-vampire finale kicks off with "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn (Part One)" in November. Says Pattinson, "Its a horror movie. (laughs) Incredibly strange, its a totally different genre. The first part of it is really a straight-up horror movie. The second one is more similar - well, there are a couple of weird bits in the second. The first one is like, Huh? (laughs) Its really left the box behind. But its fine - its such a long shoot, theres no consistency to which movie were shooting at any time. I just know theres no way to avoid the freakishness of the story. The key story points are the weirdest parts of the story. It might end up being a cult movie."
Quotable: Pattinson admits that fame has gotten into his head a little bit, but what he misses are normal things for a guy his age. "I wish I werent so paranoid about things. Im always certain that the main thing about young actors careers now is being overexposed because people just seem to want to do it so much - [hard American accent] Just stick his face on this piece of crap - I wish I could avoid that, get it out of my brain. But when youre working you cant do anything anyway; I go straight to bed. I wish I could go to the cinema more often. As soon as people know youre in the cinema, theres this horrible energy - no ones concentrating on the movie. Thats the biggest downside. And not being able to be incredibly drunk in public."
By the time you’re reading this article, Robert Pattinson will have wrapped his final scene for “Breaking Dawn: Part 2.”
In a way, he’s breaking up with his ethereal BFF.
“It does feel like a breakup. I do love the guy — and I’m going to miss him,” Pattinson, 24, says during an interview with the Sun-Times on a cool Sunday afternoon from his hotel suite in Santa Monica, Calif. “I prefer to think of ending this franchise like leaving school. It’s the last day of high school.”
He mulls over the plusses of leaving behind his romantic alter ego.
“I’ll be very glad not to put those contacts in anymore or have to put on the sparkling makeup,” he says with a giggle.
The thing about Pattinson is, he likes to giggle. A lot. Then his voice softens.
“It’s been amazing to play the same character through so many adventures. And it’s so strange because my life has changed so much over these years, but ‘Twilight’ and Edward Cullen will always be a part of me. It’s been my whole life. My whole 20s,” he says. “And I wouldn’t have it any other way.”
He knows that there is no way he’s leaving this room without spilling some secrets about “Breaking Dawn,” a two-part finale debuting in November.
“I haven’t really seen any of the footage, so I’m not sure how any of it turned out. All I can tell you is, it felt right. It was from the heart.
“I’m as curious as any ‘Twilight’ fan,” he insists.

Michael Copon var ju killen som egentligen skulle spela Jacob Black i Twilight Sagan, innan Taylor Lautner tog platsen som Jake.
I en ny intervju med Michael berättar han lite om det;
Michael Copon confirmed that he was a step away from getting the role of Jacob Black in “Twilight” and Troy Bolton on “High School Musical.”
“Yeah, originally the first director was fired and then there was confusion if I still had the role because they were talks about keeping the same cast…
“Taylor [Lautner, who eventually landed the role in ‘Twilight’] and I had the same agent then…” was Copon’s rambling recount about being picked for the Jacob Black role.
He disclosed to Bulletin Entertainment that he didn’t even have to audition for it as the was handed to him by his agent for approval. Upon reading it, he knew instantly that he likes to be part of a movie about vampires and werewolves; adding that he was interested in playing the older Jacob Black.
“That’s because I’m tall at 6’2---taller than Taylor---so that kinda made sense,” Copon said of the predilection.
Madame Figaro. - You shoot a lot. Besides the last two episodes of the Twilight series, youll see in June in Bel Ami, Declan Donnellan and Nick Ormerod, and soon in Water for Elephants, by Francis Lawrence. What attracted you in the role of Jacob Jankowski, animal trainer in a circus? Robert Pattinson. - First, the book of the young novelist Sara Gruen, an incredible success in the United States, whose action is in the 20s in a traveling circus. Suddenly, with this role, I had the opportunity to leave the modern fantasy of Twilight, to live among the animals, touching the concrete things.
You seem drawn to the romantic past ... Yes, I include the history of America, Im interested. In reading the , I immediately hooked. It seemed obvious and easy. Jacob is a being tormented and mysterious. He lost his parents, he does not want to dig into his past and if this includes traveling circus, it is to prove himself as a veterinarian. It also ignores that he will live a violent passion and forbidden.
Your profile is accurate: that of being lonely, misunderstood and very attractive. It is a common point to all your characters. Thats true. As if Edward, the hero of twilight, was the common thread of all these roles. Jacob sees things in black and white. As for Edward, he always distinguishes good from evil. In a sense, my characters are Manichaean. Thats why I try to bring inner complexity.
And Bel Ami, how did you work? Georges Duroy, the hero of the novel, is older than you. It made me hesitate. And then I started because Maupassant he is my favorite French writer. Bel Ami is a classic unbeatable. With Uma Thurman, Kristin Scott Thomas and Christina Ricci, my playmates, we had fun. I concentrated on my game its great freedom of action. Bel Ami is an animal, my first character is completely cynical and ironically enough honest. But it is destructive. He plays a sort of game where nobody respects the rules, where everyone has connections, a great travesty worldly where the key is to pretend. He cares, he does what he pleases, and that is precisely that appeals to women.
A bit like you after all ... Oh no! Im no Don Juan. This is something that is beyond me and is actually quite cool, all those fans who take pictures of me, these blogs, this buzz. Frankly, I have no sex appeal. (Kate: That Is a matter if opinion! ) Just strolling in Los Angeles, London or Paris to find a bunch of young guys like me. I am not James Dean.
Q: There are other Snow Whites being made too, but yours is going to be the best, right?
LC: [Laughs] Kristen Stewart is the other Snow White and I really admire her as an actress. She’s so fun and so sweet and we’re both very different. We’ve both very, very different and I think we’re going to have two totally different takes on it. So it’ll be interesting to see what happens but I’m very excited to be involved with mine with Julia Roberts and Armie Hammer and Tarsem. I’m still completely amazed.
Peter Facinelli har blivit ny intervjuad av @celebuzz, där han b la. pratar om att Twilight Sagan börjar glida mot sitt slut, och även om sitt nya projekt Loosies;
What was your motivation for starting your own production company, Facinelli Films, and creating your own films?
You know I had a couple of films that I had written and I thought it was time to get them off the ground. I wrote a television movie for the Hallmark Channel that aired last month and that my wife [Jennie Garth] starred in called Accidentally in Love and it did really well in the ratings so I was really happy about that. Loosies was the second movie that I had written and we shot it last August and are now in the middle of post-production.
To be able to create something and give other people a job and have the whole crew working on something that was just an idea in your head, that was very exciting for me.
You mentioned that you are in the middle of shooting Breaking Dawn, is it a bittersweet feeling to know that the Twilight Saga is coming to a close?
Yeah. I mean, we’re so busy working that I don’t think that we’ve wrapped our heads around the fact that it’s ending soon. We still have another month to go so right now we’re just knee-deep in the work of it. I haven’t really given much thought to it being over. Even when it’s over, the films will be coming out over the next two years so I’ll still see everybody.
I en ny intervju med Ology, pratar TinselKorey (aka Emily) om hennes senaste singel Letter (Köp låten här!) och även om sin roll i BreakingDawn;
So how is Breaking Dawn coming along? How was filming this time around?
It was a lot different. It was a much bigger production than the other ones were. The cast was just massive. I think they have like 60 new vampires. So the feeling of a closer production, it didnt feel that way because it was just so massive. But Bill Condon, the director, is really, really sweet. He takes his time to introduce himself to everybody, get acquainted and get a feel for the scenes and everything like that. So that was a really big delight this time.
Whats it like being one of the only girls around the wolfpack?
They are like my brothers. Were really like a family. Just from the Twilight conventions and stuff like that, we get to see each other a lot more. Most of the time when youre filming a movie, its kind of like summer camp. You finish it and youre like, "Yeah, we should keep in touch." And that never happens. But with this, where were constantly doing promotion for the movie and seeing each other and interacting with the fans, weve had more of a chance to bond as a family. And Im kind of like a guys girl anyway. I get along better with guys I think than I do with girls. I dont know. They are like my brothers. They are really cool.
Is it safe to assume that youre Team Jacob?
I think by Breaking Dawn there are no teams. Bellas marrying Edward, so I think the team scenarios are gone out the window at this point.
I en ny intervju pratar Jodie Foster, Kristen Stewarts förra co-star i filmen Panic Room från 2002, om Kristen;
Picture from Oscars 2010.
Panic Room (2002) "I just love [co-star] Kristen Stewart, but I didn’t think she’d choose to be an actress. I said to her mom, She doesn’t want that, right? And she’s like, Well, yes, she kind of does. Because she’s very much like me: She’s not comfortable in life being a big, externally emotional person, beating her chest, crying every five minutes. I felt she was such an intelligent technician, so interested in camera — I thought that would translate to other things."
PIONEER: Isnt it just a little frustrating to play a good-guy vampire? Do you ever wish Dr. Cullen would cut loose and do something monstrous?
FACINELLI: That sort of character doesnt interest me. To the extent that I ever imagined playing a vampire, it was always one who is more mysterious than monstrous -- like Bela Lugosi in "Dracula." The brutal, horrific stuff never appealed to me. Ive always been more interested in the character of Carlisle than the idea of playing a vampire, and being a good guy is what hes all about.
PIONEER: Whats it been like being involved in such an enormously female cultural phenomenon?
FACINELLI: I think the films have their share of male fans, especially now that the stories are becoming more action-oriented as the series progresses. But I love the fact that "Twilight" is something that particularly appeals to women. Thats something I enjoyed about the books from the beginning. I grew up with sisters, so I know something about what its like to be in a world thats male-oriented in so many ways. Its very rewarding to me to see a theater crowded with women enjoying a story that appeals to them directly and specifically. I love being a part of that.
Christine Hardwicke har nyligen sagt i en intervju med henne om att hon gärna skulle ta chansen att jobba med Robert & Kristen igen;
Twilight director Catherine Hardwicke has been hard at work promoting her new flick, Red Riding Hood, with Amanda Seyfried. But that doesnt mean shes forgotten past stars Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart.
"Id love to [work with them again], if the right project comes up at the right time, that would be awesome," Cath dished at the RRH premiere Monday. "I think theyre wonderful; theyre super close to my heart."Know why?
Because she takes credit for getting them together, duh! Although she proceeded with caution at the time. "I was exactly right there when they first met, so I saw it all from the beginning," Hardwicke told us years ago about Robstens romance. "I saw that they both had that wonderful fascination with each other, and thats why I cast Rob."
Would you all like to see a Catherine, Rob, and Kristen reunion on screen? We would! Just last summer there were rumors that Pattinson and Stewart were going to star in Summits adaptation of Men are From Mars, Women are From Venus.
While Kristen told us that was not true, she did say she would want to work with Rob in a non-sparkly vampire project. "Yeah, we talk about it all the time," beamed K.Stew.
Angela Sarafyan (aka Tia) har nyligen blivit intervjuad av NextMovie, där hon b la. pratar om Breaking Dawn, Bill Condon, etc:
What is next for you after the madness of South by Southwest?
Well, you may have heard, but Im about to head to Vancouver to finish shooting "Twilight" ["Breaking Dawn"]. That has been really great, a lot of fun. This will be my first time in Canada and everyone tells me its a good time.
So you started shooting and now you’re returning?
We were shooting down in Baton Rouge for about three months and I just got back to Los Angeles, we were shooting there. And when I get back, then well finish in Vancouver for a month. And that will be the end, the end of "Twilight!"
How different is the experience of shooting a big, Hollywood movie like "Twilight" as opposed to a smaller film like "American Animal?"
I imagine they must be two ends of the spectrum.Its funny you say that because it was quite the opposite from what I expected. Its a very big, big film and youd think it would be filled with pressure and… its not at all like that. Its very intimate. Easy to do, somehow. The people I work with are so helpful, kind and welcoming. Its been fun to go to work with those kind of people, especially under very extraordinary circumstances.
It doesnt feel as big as youd think, which has been good for me as an actor. I get to play around and create things and have fun in the moment. Were only one part of it as actors, because the special effects and visual effects all come in [after]... and [director] Bill Condon conducting the whole thing – only half the film is being shot, the other half is in post-production. Itll be a huge surprise at the end, [laughs] I don’t know what it will look like!
Max Irons har nyligen blivit intervjuad, där han pratar lite om Rob Pattinson;
"Tja... Robert är en väldigt duktig skådespelare, (men) det här är en olikt odjur till filmen som inte borde bli nämnd" Han skojade, innan han meddelade: "Du vet, jag tror han blir belönad och förbannad.
"Robert kommer förresten ha en lång, lång kariär." Meddelade Max. "Jag har en känsla av det... för han är Engelsk!"
Noel Fisher (aka Vladimir) har nyligen blivit intervjuad av MovieLine, där han pratar om b la. Breaking Dawn, Bill Condon, Mackenzie Foy osv;
Your character in Breaking Dawn is an ancient Romanian vampire. What was your approach to the character of Vladimir when you auditioned? I read the book, re-watched the movies. I watched some other vampire movies and really tried to immerse myself in the Twilight world and this idea of being so ancient. I play a vampire that’s very old.
It seems as though this kind of character would offer a new challenge especially to a young actor, in that you get to play a very, very old soul. Vladimir has been around for centuries and has even ruled the vampire world. Again, the was done in a really great way, and Stephenie [Meyer] wrote the characters in a great way so that they are quite different from the rest of the vampires we’ve seen. They come from a much more vicious, kind of ruthless period of time. He’s been a lot of fun to play.
Vladimir has a Romanian vampire buddy, Stefan. Is it fair to call them hetero vampire life partners, a la Jay and Silent Bob? Yes! Well, they’re kind of brothers in arms, that’s how I would describe it. They’re the only two remaining Romanian vampires left, I believe, so they are kind of brothers in their need for vengeance and that’s what keeps us going.
Your character, Vladimir, interacts a bit with the Renesmee character in Breaking Dawn, who’s played by Mackenzie Foy — Who is awesome, by the way. She is fantastic. She’s just a beautiful little soul, and she’s going to be awesome. I can’t wait for everyone to get to meet her.
Was green screen or CG involved in your scenes together? I can’t tell you. My lips are sealed! I wish I could. You call me back in a year and I’ll tell you all about it.
Fair enough. What’s Bill Condon like to work with, and how do his sensibilities as a director mesh with the material? I think it’s a perfect fit. Bill Condon is obviously just an amazingly talented director and working with him has really been… I don’t want to be tacky, but it is very much an awe-inspiring experience. He’s got this massive cast and he is so energized and so loving what he’s doing. He will take time; if you don’t have a single line in the scene, he is so happy to take time and talk with you about where your character’s at and what’s going on. He’s really happy to be doing what he’s doing, and that’s one of the greatest things. I think that’s the mark of a good director, in a lot of ways. It was the same with Jonathan Liebesman on Battle: Los Angeles. He’s just a big kid, but the movie is very much like a bunch of kids getting to play. It’s a bunch of guys running around in Marines costumes with rifles and stuff, and it’s like the games you played as a 12-year-old boy but with way, way better props.
Lee Pace (aka Garrett) pratar lite om sin roll som Garrett i Breaking Dawn. Han nämner även Bill Condon & Kristen Stewart;
Intervju: Jag undrar om du kan prata om din roll som Garett i The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part2. Kan du ge oss några detaljer om karaktären? Är han en av The Volturi?
Lee Pace: Nej, jag är en bra kille. Jag är med Team Cullen. Jag är bara med i den sista filmen. Jag spelar Garrett, som avslutar den sista scenen i den sista filmen. Jag har det svårt med det. Bill Condon är fantastiskt. Jag menar, har du någon gång sett en film av hans, som du inte gillar?
Intervju: Aa... nej.
Lee Pace: Det är hur jag känner också. De filmerna är vad de är. Det är inte min typ av film, men jag behöver säga, att arbeta med Bill och låta honom visa mig några grejer, är det totalt min typ av film. Det är verkligen coolt och mörkt. Han får Kristen (Stewart) i en väldigt bra väg. Hon är otrolig i filmen. Hon ser ut som en film stjärna.
Billy Burke (aka Charlie Swan) pratar om Breaking Dawn, Catherine Hardwicke och Kristen Stewart och lite andra saker i den här nya intervjun:
Were you excited to work with Catherine Hardwicke again?
Absolutely. I love her to death, and I always have a special place in my heart for her. When she called me and pitched me the movie and the idea, I was all in. She created the Twilight world and she did an amazing job with that, and I figured if anyone could make a picture like this, it would be her.
People are comparing this movie to Twilight. Why do you think that is?
Here’s what my guess is. There is a love triangle. There’s a young girl and two gentlemen vying for her attention. That’s probably the biggest comparison. Other than that, there’s a wolf in it. [laughs] There’s sweeping shots across the mountains in the trailer and there were some in Twilight, so I think that’s what people are looking at.
Any update you can give me on Breaking Dawn?
I’m here in Vancouver right now filming. The stache is here in all its glory. After this film, I’m not sure the stache in this form will ever return to my face. This has been a great gig for me. I don’t think that there’s any relief at all, if there were more books and more movies, I’d probably keep coming back. It’s a fun role to play and I love the peeps involved. As far as being sad, I don’t know if that’s going to happen. I’m certainly not going to be glad, though.
Fans are dying to know if the scene between Charlie and Bella after the wedding be kept in the movie?
I do have a scene with Kristen directly after the wedding, before they take off for the honeymoon.
Billy har även en roll i Catherine Harwickes kommande film, Red Riding Hood. Läs mer om det här, där han svarar på frågor om filmen.
Shiloh Fernandez spelar huvudrollen i den nya filmen Red Riding Hood som Twilight-regissören Catherine Hardwicke har regisserat. Han provspelade även för rollen som Edward, men fick inte rollen. Nedan förklarar han varför.
Hon satt på köksbänken och bet på naglarna och sparkade med fötterna och jag jag sa "Vad händer?", "Vet du hur man pratar?", "Kan vi kommunicera om det här?". Så det slutade med att jag ignorerade henne och pratade med Catherine. Vad jag inte insåg var att självklart att hon har mycket att säga till om eftersom hon är huvudrollen och man måste ha kemi.
"Its definitely sexy," Jackson Rathbone told us at Leeza Gibbons Dare2Care Pre-Oscar Cocktail party of Edward and Bellas highly-anticipated onscreen love-making. "It definitely qualifies as shmexaaay."
"Its a PG-13 movie, but also it is what it is and its a union," Rathbone said. "They are consummating their relationship and they dont just do it once, lets put it that way."
Hear that! Robsten go at it more...than...once!
Rathbone also assures us well be seeing lots of that signature Rob and Kristen chemistry in the flick.
"Oh yeah," he laughed. "It sizzles, man. It sizzles like bacon!"
Den Italienska Vanity Fair har gett oss en liten Sneak Peek på intervjun tillsammans med Robert Pattinson inför tidningen;
“I don’t know why but all Robert Pattinson interviews start with a deion on how he is dressed. My interview, however, has not yet been written: it will be ready in Italy when his new movie is released, the one after “Twilight”. I mean ” Water for Elephants”; probably in May. But what I do know is that I will do something different, I won’t say anything about how he was dressed.
I also know that in Pattinson’s case, even the smallest details can’t be ignored, as millions of women worldwide, from 9 years old, would sacrifice more than a broken a nail just to get their hands on the smallest piece of information on him. Therefore here’s a detailed account of Pattinson’s look. The location: a second floor suite at the Four Seasons hotel in Los Angeles. The time: 3:30 in the afternoon and although it is not his first interview of the day, it seems like he just got out of bed.
Finally he arrives: He pours himself a cup of coffee, “I need to wake up”, he apologizes. And, indeed, he has the sleepy face, but his eyes are incredibly clear. Then he sits down and puts his feet near the coffee table in front of the chair. He’s wearing a pair of black jeans, quite narrow at the bottom, he moves back on bended knees exposing bare skin between his short socks (which are also black) and the edge of his trousers. He has white skin and dark hair that is sparse. Oh his feet: a pair of Dr. Martens, ça va sans dire, black. His outfit is completed with a T-shirt and a jacket that I would say are vintage. The hair on his neck is shaved, with a little bit visible at the front , his skin is clear and smooth. And his lips: I swear, the reddest I’ve ever seen on a man…”

Amanda som var & promotade hennes nya film Red Riding Hood - sa den moderna-dag-sagan, regiserad av Twilight filmmakaren Catherine Harwicke, har det annrolunda med Twilight serien. "Jag tror det är svårt att inte compenera Red Riding Hood för Catherine regiserade första Twilight filmen. Men RedRidingHood är en väldigt annorluna film.
Amanda: "Jag menar, ja, det är en kärleks historia, och folket kan enkelt kompenera relationen mellan KristenStewart och de två andra gillarna i Twilight till Valerie, Henry och Peter karaktärerna i den här filmen, men vi har så många element som gör det helt annorlunda. Ingen vet vem varuleven är i vår film"
Meghan: "Goodness ..." Josh: "Bert and Ernie." (all laugh) Meghan: "Aww man, I dont know. That is a tough one. I could probably think of 10 people yesterday. I cant think of everybody right now." Josh: "Lets see. The Notebook was pretty good. Meghan: "Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams. Yeah, that was good ..." Josh: "That was a good movie. I gotta admit, man. That really hit me (Meghan laughs) ... Yeah, I mean, it was ... I just lost my grandmother to Alzheimers." Meghan: "You know, Im a sucker for Twilight movies. I like Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart. I think theyre cute."
Trots att hon ser väldigt nöjd ut där hon sitter med sin co-star Garrett Hedlund i den här nysläppta stillbilden från On the Road, säger hennes kompis och manliga co-star Tom Sturridge att han har fått förstahandsinformation om hur aggresiva paparazzifotograferna kan vara med Kstew.
"Jag tror, ni vet, för henne och för alla, är det inte rättvist, speciellt inte för unga tjejer," berättade Sturridge här om dagen när har promotade sin nya film Waiting for Forever. "Det är upprörande. Män som jagar unga tjejer? Det är hemskt."
Att jobba med Stewart i On the Road var allt annat än hemsk. "Hon är häpnadsväckande," säger Sturridge. "Jag tycker att hon genuint är en fantastisk skådespelerska, och hon gör saker i filmen som jag aldrig sett henne göra. Men ändå på sätt och vis aldrig sett någon göra. Japp, hon var brilliant." (För ert intresse: Han kysser henne inte, men det gör deras co-star Garrett Hedlund däremot.)
On the Road som är en återberättelse av Jack Kerouacs klassiska bok med samma namn, har även Sam Riley med i castet. "Det var så konstigt," säger Sturridge. "Jag kommer ihåg i början när vi alla satt på repetitionerna och tittade på varandra som Hur ligger ansvaret för den här filmen på våra axlar?"
Den här nysläppta stillbilden från filmen visar hur Stewart dansar under en tagning medan hon i den andra hänger med Hedlund i en bil.
Andrea Gabriel, som spelar Kebi i Breaking Dawn, The Egyptian Coven, pratar om breaking dawn i en ny intervju med henne:
Lets get to the first Twitter question...
@Twilightfreak72 wanted to know what it was like on the set of Breaking Dawn - and what was your favorite part of playing a vampire?
[laughs] Its a lot of fun - the vampires are a blast... all of the people who are in this cast... its a wonderful group, and its very diverse. Just like theres not two of any one kind - its a real bonding experience because were all in the same boat, were all on location and our families, our homes and our pets are all [laughs] very far away. So it does feel like camp. And then, my favorite part of playing a vampire is... I guess just being a badass. [laughs]
Another Twitter question, TwiLifeLover wanted to know: Did you really enjoy working with the cast? Was it easy? And were they funny?
[laughs] Yes... yes... and yes. [laughs] Yeah, Im having a great time - and everybody is hilarious. Theres some very clever... we laugh a lot... we laugh a lot. We have little inside vampire jokes, its a lot of fun.
And most of the cast is a lot younger than you.
Um, it depends. The main characters are younger, yeah, but as for the vampires they kind of run the gambit. There are a few in my age range, there are few in their early twenties, and then there are a few that are older. But the main characters - its geared towards the kids.
One last Twitter question, _Cammie_ wanted to know what you thought about Mackenzie Foy?
Oh, shes awesome. Shes really... really... really cool. Shes VERY smart, and shes really precocious - and not precocious in a showy kind of way that sometimes kid actors can be - you can tell that she is very wise. And wise beyond her years. And she [laughs] complains less than anybody [laughs] on the set... the adults tend to whine more than she does. Shes quite a trooper with a great attitude all of the time. Shes really wonder and really pretty - shes going to be a stunner.
Since the cast has been together for a while now, were you worried about being the newcomer?
Well, yeah... theyre all pretty well bonded so its just like showing up at a new job or a new school - and since Ive guest starred on a lot of shows I kind of know what it feels like to step into that situation. And usually people are very welcoming to newcomers. Its a long process, so its almost like youve become accustomed to each other - you become part of the gang.
Hon fortsätter. Hon är på en rulle: Stewart inspirerar mig. Kristen L respekt för att vara sann mot sig själv, avvikelse eller gör vad folk säger. till handtag berömmelse också. Hon jag tror berömmelse är vad din utveckling. Om du inte vill stå i rampljuset, kan du öva fortfarande sin konst. "
Ashley & Tom Felton pratar om Harry Potter vs. Edward Cullen
Ashley Greene & Tom Felton (fråga mig inte vem det är, hahaxD!) pratar lite om Harry Potter vs. Edward Cullen.
"Oh yeah, we had lengthy debates," Felton said of his and Greenes "Potter" vs. "Twilight" chats. "We actually spent most evenings, instead of rehearsing lines we would debate who would actually win out of Edward Cullen and Harry Potter. Its still ongoing. We havent settled it," he joked.
Nina Dobrev från serien Vampire Diaries som Elena, pratar lite om Edward och Bella;
Nina Dobrev talks aboute Elena Vs Bella and says she loves Edward Nina Dobrev might be the leading lady in The Vampire Diaries love triangle, but she has her eyes on another vampire — Edward Cullen! The actress, who plays Elena, a girl torn between two vampire brothers on the hit CW drama,says Stephenie Meyer “makes Edward seem like the ideal man, and that’s what makes you really fall in love with him.” Stefan and Damon cover your ears!
Nina also described the differences between her Elena and Kristen Stewart’s Bella telling the Associated Press, “I think the public can compare them, but I think they are so different … Their personalities are different, the reason they do things are different. Bella does everything for herself and Elena does everything for others. But both are great in different ways.”
Nina reveals how she first caught Twilight fever: “I have read the Twilight books. I actually read them before all the movies came out. I shot a movie in Salt Lake City, where Stephenie Meyer is from, and somebody who knows her gave me the books and said, ‘You need to read these. They’re great.’ They are really good.” And even though she thinks Robert Pattinson’s character Edward is ideal, she’s not making moves on Bella’s man. “I love Edward and the love story between him and Bella. It’s nice to currently experience something similar.”
Mariel Belanger is a Canadian actress who played the role of Taha Aki’s third wife in The Twilight Saga: Eclipse. Yes, she was the one who sacrificed herself so that her husband could destroy the female vampire that had killed her son (and half the village) in the flashback “History of the Quileutes” scene, as told by Billy Black.
QWP: Many seem to agree that the Twilight saga movies have “opened doors” for Native American actors to more modern roles. What are your thoughts on this? MB: The saga has definitely opened doors for some actors, I can’t say my role was modern because it wasn’t. I think the only real way doors are going to be opened is if screen writers generalize their characters more. The majority of roles are still written for Caucasian characters even though we live in a bi-racial/multi-ethnic society. The writing/casting needs to reflect that more.
QWP: What was filming on the set of The Twilight Saga: Eclipse like? Was it different from other projects you’ve worked on? MB: It was very different. TSE was much bigger than anything I had worked on. I’ve been on some T.V. sets but it was definitely different. There is so much going on all the time in many different places. The daily call sheets were quite long and laid out the going ons of every actor/ key person needed that day, what they were supposed to be doing etc. It opens your eyes as to the level of multi-tasking skills needed by key crewmembers.
QWP: What was it like to work under the direction of David Slade? MB: I only got to work with him 2 days, but my time in front of the camera was nice. He wasn’t condescending or impatient. He made me feel important and after we shot my last scene he congratulated me on now being a ‘star’.
Kristen pratar Perks & fallgropar av Twilight pengar och berömmelse; acces hollywood
Kristen Stewart loves her throngs of "Twilight" fans - but its the character Bella, not Kristen herself, who the legions of fans are really fawning over, at least according to the actress.
"Masses of girls identified with Bella in a really profound way, for want of a better word," Kristen said in a new interview for the February issue of Vogue, which features her on the cover. "The connection that Ive seen people have . . . Ive seen it physically. Its the characters theyre flipping for."
Whether its Kristen or Bella the Twi-hards are going crazy for, its the 20-year-old big screen beauty who must bear the brunt of the adoration.
"Theres no way to eloquently put this," she told the mag. "I just cant go to the mall. It bothers me that I cant be outside very often. And also to not ever be just some girl again. Just being some chick at some place, thats gone."
Dont take it the wrong way. K-Stew isnt complaining about the global superstardom which Bella has bestowed upon her. After all, its also brought a flood of something else - money, something which she said she doesnt take lightly.
"Its funny when you are endowed not only with public recognition on a [expletive] seriously vast level, but also money," she added. "Like, fund. Anytime I hear that somebodys really rich, the first question is Do you do anything with it? Or do you, like, chill? You just sit on it?"
As it turns out, Kristen does have a plan for her newfound fortune (or at least, part of it) - she wants to set up a network of halfway houses to help those who are struggling get back on their feet - a cause Kristen saw first-hand while researching for a role as a runaway from a sex slave trafficking ring, according to Vogue.
"That would be amazing," she continued. "Right now its the thing I feel most connected to."
When it comes to other roles shes had the opportunity to dive into, Kristen is hopeful her career wont be forever pigeon-holed by her time spent as her vampire-loving big screen doppelganger.
"At this point it seems like, Well see what the Twilight girl did. Lets see how shes trying to be different," she conceded.
5 frågor för Vogues Eve MacSweeney om Februari skådespelerskan Kristen Stewart
(INGEN BILD TILLGÄNGLIG JUST NU!)
Vogue.com: Where did you interview Kristen? Eve MacSweeney: Since she had just started a year’s worth of filming of the two-part finale of the Twilight Saga in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, I went there to see her. It’s a fairly small town, so at first I thought it would be fun for her to show me around and visit the local places she likes. Wrong! I totally underestimated how hard it is for her to go anywhere without being mobbed. We met in the house of a friend of hers on a gated property, and even then, if she caught sight of a teenage girl in the distance, she would virtually to the floor so as not to be seen.
Vogue.com: Did anything surprise you about Kristen? Eve MacSweeney: Since, as she herself put it, “I just can’t go to the mall,” she’s developed some unexpected hobbies. She likes golf (lots of space, not a lot of human contact), and she really is an excellent self-taught cook. She told me she reads food magazines and watches a lot of cooking shows. When we met, she made an amazing tortilla soup with all kinds of accoutrements, (see recipe here) along with pulled pork. Delicious!
Vogue.com: What did you learn about her approach to fashion? Eve MacSweeney: She had fun with the Proenza Schouler boys in our photo shoot, and she definitely keeps a young spirit in the way she dresses, like wearing short, not long. When she’s dressing for an event she likes to keep things spontaneous—she has her stylist pull three or four looks and puts on whatever she feels best in at that moment.
Vogue.com: How does she feel about playing Bella Swan? Eve MacSweeney: Kristen takes her responsibilities to Twilight fans incredibly seriously, because she knows how important it is to them that the Bella they see on-screen is true to the character in the books, which she reads and rereads on set. She was joking about the honeymoon scene in Brazil, which she had just come back from filming. As she tries to seduce Edward (Robert Pattinson) in a sexy negligee, the crew was urging her to “shake it up a bit.” But she said, “I was like ‘Aaaah!’ I couldn’t do it. It would have gone against everything I’ve ever been used to playing with her.”
Vogue.com: What did she tell you about her personal life? Eve MacSweeney: She won’t talk about Rob Pattinson, which is smart of her because if she started, it would never end. And she described how she keeps her sanity by “building a perimeter of people” around her that she can have fun with and not have to feel so aware of the strange circumstances her fame imposes on her. She has a very solid, close family and is really very down-to-earth, as well as being passionate about acting and intelligent about thinking up ways she can use her success to do good. Her plan is to find a way to help teenage runaways get back on their feet, a subject close to her heart after her role in Welcome to the Rileys.
Rachelle Lefevre berättar hur Twilight förändrade henne liv
Did you know how Twilight would change your life?
LEFEVRE: I had no idea that it was going to change my life, in that way. But, I didn’t know I was going to end up doing a show where I was going to have to move to Honolulu either. This is the kind of job where you just always have a suitcase packed in the back of your closet, and you’re just ready to go wherever the call is. After Twilight, I had a bunch of stuff that the cast had signed and I did an eBay auction and raised $14,000 for an organization in Los Angeles, called School on Wheels, which tutors homeless children. That was one of the benefits of being involved with Twilight.
Do you get approached by fans a lot?
LEFEVRE: Yeah, I feel like I do and I don’t. It depends on where I am and what’s going on, and whether my hair is in a bun or not. In Hawaii, they’re happy to hear that you’re filming a show. They love it that people actually come and make use of their beautiful landscapes. They’ve been great. We were sleeping in the airport the other night and nobody actually came up to us, but they did see us sleeping on the floor. I did see a couple teenage girls and their moms looking and being like, “Is that her? I think they’re doing a show here. Oh, my god, they’re sleeping on the floor of the airport!” Our flight was delayed six hours and it was four in the morning.
Sebastian Stan pratar om The Apparition & Ashley Greene
MTV: Lets talk "Apparition" for a minute.
Stan: It was amazing, We were all included creatively in the process. Todd Lincoln, who wrote and directed it, wanted that. We had rehearsal time when we could come together and sometimes rewrite things for the better. We had time to improvise and see what we were missing. We discovered a lot of stuff that way. Both Tom and Ashley are coming from such huge franchises themselves, theyve sort of experienced every corner of celebrity or hype, so I kind of felt like I was more on the sidelines to that.
MTV: Dont sell your time on "Gossip Girl" short!
Stan: Oh no, never! Ill always be grateful for that show. The exposure for me has been huge.
MTV: Where does this one fall in terms of tone?
Stan: To me, it was a mixture of "The Strangers" and "Texas Chainsaw Massacre" and "Poltergeist." Todd had a huge list of movies he wanted us to watch. We saw how horror was done in the 70s, 80s, 90s into today. Its definitely more psychological than just "get scared!"
MTV: Thats kind of like "Black Swan." There are horror elements, psychological-thriller elements.
Stan: Yeah, I think a lot of "Apparition" is similar to that. As an audience, youre trying to figure out if something is happening or if youre a witness in somebodys dark thoughts.
MTV: Most people are used to seeing Ashley in her "Twilight" world. What are people going to be surprised about when they see "Apparition"?
Stan: Its different than how anybody has seen her before. Both of our characters are very simple, relatable kids. Just to finally play somebody whos more relatable rather than a vampire, somebody with flaws and dreams and goals and is struggling with life — thats amazing. These kids dont know what they want to do with their lives, just that they want to start living a simple life. There are great arcs in the characters and the story lines, and its going to be great for people to see her play that out.
En ny intervju med Ashley Greene där hon pratar om breaking dawn :
Ashley Greene has spent the first days of 2011 doing martial-arts training. If we didnt know she was gearing up for some vampire fisticuffs in "Breaking Dawn," we might say the 23-year-old is getting ready to kick, punch and otherwise pound into submission the next 12 months. Because after years spent as a beloved supporting player in the "Twilight" franchise, Greene is set to take her turn in 2011 as one of the series breakout stars.
The year begins with the debut of the Sundance indie "Skateland," an 80s coming-of-age tale. Then its on to "LOL," a comedy in which she stars as a bad girl opposite Miley Cyrus. And dont forget about "The Apparition," a supernatural thriller that brings "Twilight" together with "Harry Potter" (Tom Felton) and "Gossip Girl" (Sebastian Stan), and the ensemble comedy, "Butter." Oh, yeah — plus the first part of "Breaking Dawn."
Yep, its going to be a big year for Greene. Thats why weve named her as one of MTV News 11 to Watch in 2011. During a break from the "Breaking Dawn" set in Louisiana, the actress answered some questions via e-mail, hitting on subjects like working with Cyrus, her most anticipated "Breaking Dawn" scene and what it was like to see Kristen Stewart as a vampire.
MTV: What "Breaking Dawn" scene are you most excited to film?
Greene: Most excited to film and see would be the big fight sequence against the Volturi. As a cast, we like to do as many of our own stunts as possible, so its fun and challenging to shoot those scenes. Jeff Imada, the stunt coordinator, is such a blast to work with as well. Im learning so much from him.
MTV: Tell us about Bill Condons style on set. How does he differ from prior "Twilight" directors?
Greene: "Theres no way to describe what its like working with Bill Condon except incredible! He is so professional, patient and a fantastic leader. I get excited going to set every day knowing I get to work with him. Each director has brought such a different energy and perspective to the films. Bill is very relaxed and authoritative, in a good way. I feel very comfortable working with him.
MTV: Kristen Stewart said at the Peoples Choice Awards that she filmed some scenes as a vampire. What was your reaction to seeing Kristen as a vampire?
Greene: Glad to have her officially join the Cullen family!
Taylor Lautners kollega Lilly Collins från filmen Abduction pratar om hur Taylor är mot sina fans:
"I would watch the way he deals with his fans. Its incredible," she told us. "Wed be shooting at nights where we finish at 7 in the morning, and one night, we had 600 fans in the middle of nowhere in Pittsburgh waiting outside, and it was probably almost 5 in the morning, and he went out and signed every single autograph. He was always there to be with his fans and to make sure they knew he appreciated them.
"I watched that and I took note that its always important to give back and to make sure the people that support you know that you support them," Collins added. "Hes so humble in dealing with everyone that looks up to him."
Nu har scene magazine intervjuat Kellan Lutz & vi har även fått in 1 bild från hans nya film: Love, wedding, marriage & hans andra nya film: The killing game
The success of Twilight rocketed its cast into the stratosphere, making Kellan and company household names overnight. But while the character of Emmett has given Kellan great exposure, he hasn’t been identified with the role in the same way that Christopher Reeve, while a talented actor, was forever Superman. The result is a great deal of freedom. “It’s been such an amazing process. I fell into acting and I found a passion for it and it’s really like a hobby to me. I have a great agent, we’ve been best friends, and we have the same dream: to not care about the money and to not care about the fame. We can be cool and collected and really plan my career.” “I’m blessed to be doing the Twilight movies because I know I get to make multiple movies,” Kellan says. “So, let’s go find some independents with meaty parts: let’s find a drama, let’s find a comedy, let’s find a thriller, let’s find a romantic comedy, a love story. I know my strengths and weaknesses. So, I might not take the great paying jobs of playing the frat guy, playing the jock, playing the preppy boy, because that’s what people see me as already. I’d rather do something a little different. It’s very tough for me to be seen as vulnerable or someone who could be beaten up, so its tough to get those roles, but I’m all for it.”
The planning has paid off. While Kellan is currently in Baton Rouge filming Breaking Dawn, the two-part finale to The Twilight Saga, it isn’t the first time he’s filmed in Louisiana. Just a few months ago, he was the lead in two films that could not have been more different. While shooting the action-thriller The Killing Game in Baton Rouge, he was also starring in the romantic comedy Love, Wedding, Marriage in New Orleans.
“It was really one of the best moments in my acting career: doing two movies at the same time, shooting three days here and driving down to New Orleans with a six-hour turnaround, putting on a suit to do Love, Wedding, Marriage for two days. Then, driving back up, putting on prosthetics, getting all bloody and fighting. I didn’t have a single day off for thirty-three days,” he says. “And I was the lead in those two movies. I loved it, because I haven’t had that opportunity. Doing these two completely different projects was so challenging and I thrived on it. I never felt so energetic. A lot of times I only had three hours of sleep.”
USA Today fick möjligheten att intervjua Wyck Godfrey som är Breaking Dawns producent och han hade en del avsöljanden att dela med sig av om de två filmerna.
Var delas boken i två delar? Wyck: I grund och botten ville vi ta publiken igenom den svåra tiden med Bellas resa när hon blir vampyr. Första filmen kommer täcka, bröllopet, smekmånaden och födseln. Filmen slutar precis innan Bella går igenom hela förvandlingen.
Boken har tre olika delar, två från Bellas sida, och en från Jacobs, hur delar ni upp det? Wyck: Berättelsen kommer vara ur hennes perspektiv i början och sen gå in i Jacobs när han kämpar med sitt eget dilemma. Detta kommer utspela sig när The Cullens tar itur med sina problem med Bellas graviditet och Jacob då går igenom egna problem.
Hur är den långa väntan på Edward och Bellas stora kärleks scen filmad? Wyck: Även om dom tre tidigare filmerna visar en otrolig stark psykisk relation mellan Bella och Edward så kommer inte denna scen bli näst in till porr om det är det ni menar. Scenen är viktig i filmen och den är väldig romantisk och sensuell.
About an hour before I meet Nikki Reed at L.A.’s famed Chateau Marmont, I get a text message: “Hey, it’s Nikki. Do you want to meet somewhere else?” After she picks a mom and pop coffeehouse on Melrose, blocks away from the trendy stores of Sunset Boulevard, she explains, “I know I should go through my publicist… but the Chateau is just so formal.” For an actress who just turned 20 and is about to appear in one of the most hyped movies of the year, Twilight, Reed is decidedly un-Hollywood. Wearing a flannel shirt and faded jeans, she is the antithesis of the Emmy party scene that has gone on all weekend. Did she go to any of the soirees? “No. I’m not on a show, so it feels wrong,” she says, though she did go to another event a few days earlier. “I went with Kristen [Stewart, her Twilight co-star], who happens to be, like, my best friend now. But once you’re in there, what do you do? You go, and it feels like, ‘Alright, let’s eat some hors d’oeuvres and chat.’ But why didn’t we just stay home and chat?” If Reed’s head is refreshingly screwed on straight, perhaps it’s because this isn’t her first go-round with being a young It Girl. In 2003, the actress catapulted onto the scene with the critically acclaimed Thirteen, a movie that she not only co-starred in with Evan Rachel Wood but also co-wrote with director Catherine Hardwicke. Since that time, Reed has starred in many films, including Mini’s First Time with Alec Baldwin and Cherry Crush, and she also did a stint on The O.C. But Twilight, her third teaming with Hardwicke (Reed also appeared in the director’s criminally underrated Lords of Dogtown), is unquestionably her biggest project to date. Based on the popular vampire novels by Stephenie Meyer, the movie is being counted on as a franchise, with Reed and her co-stars signing onto three movies before ever shooting. She felt the immensity of the Twilight experience almost as soon as it was announced that she would play Rosalie. “This is by far the most terrifying thing I’ve ever attempted,” she says. “I got the first taste of what it was like to not please everybody when they released the first set of cast photos, which weren’t supposed to be released. In the book, Rosalie is like 6 feet tall and fair-skinned with blonde hair and light eyes, like a Swedish bikini model, not exactly me on paper. And when they released those photos, there was this huge uproar, like this big frenzy.” It was an abrupt transition back into Hollywood-land for Reed. At the time she got the call for Twilight, she was working on the island of Kauai in a clothing store as part of a bet with her brother. “He brought up a very valid point, which is that I’d never worked a normal job. I’ve worked hard; I’ve been living on my own since I was 14. But I didn’t know what it was like to make minimum wage,” she says. It was a humbling experience. “I walked around, and I was giving my resumé, which had nothing on it, to department stores just because my brother sort of bet me to see how long it would take me to get a job. And it was really difficult. I was pulling the whole, ‘But I’m an actor, and maybe you would’ve seen something I’ve done.’” The job quest and subsequent work was cake compared to the intensity of being in Twilight. “Some people are really supportive, and some people are so quick to pick everything apart and not understand that we’re actors playing characters in a book and that’s it, full stop, period,” she says. “And I’m definitely far away from [Rosalie], but I’ve never had people ask me questions as a character. Even when I’m going to lunch or going to dinner, people come up to the table and go, ‘Hey, Rosalie, my name is such and such. Do you really hate Bella?’” The surreality of that aside, Reed says, “I acknowledge what a phenomenon this series is; I think there’s a lot of subtext to these books. Kids like to feel like they’re reading more adult material, and this is the first book in a long time where things are softened in a way that makes it acceptable for a younger audience to read, whereas if you really get into it, it’s clear that it’s for a more adult audience. This book just cannot be categorized at all.” STEVE BALTIN Photographed by JEANEEN LUND
Eszes Szabolcs berättar om när han fick träffa Kristen
Robert Pattinsons stund double i Bel Ami, Eszes Szabolcs, pratar kort om Kristen i en nyligen gjord intervju.
Den absolut sista inspelningsdagen bjöd [Uma Thurman] in mig till en fest med skådespelarna i filmen, där även Roberts flickvän Kristen Stewart var med. När jag träffade henne, pekade hon bara på mig och sa "Herregud! Du ser verkligen ut som Robert!" Självklart på engelska. Det var allt då jag träffade henne.
Här är en "intervju" med Roberts stunt person som berättar hur det var att jobba med honom:
Bild på Robert & hans stunt:
In a recent article, Robert Pattinsons stunt double (or stand in) spoke about what it was like working with Rob on the set of Bel Ami. The article is translated to english so some of it might sound a little off:
Eszes Szabolcs really looks like the worlds most beautiful man Robert Pattinson, who is famous for his role of Edward from The Twilight Saga.
The actor recently filmed here his upcoming movie, in which Szabolcs was his stunt double.
– I read the books and watched all the movies, but thats all. I went to the casting not because of Robert Pattinson. I thought it will be an exciting experience for me as an actor to play in a film like this even if only an extra. Finally that turned out a completely different thing.
– Lots of people came to the auditions. One of my friend was wondering how we could be ahead of the long line. We walked in the hallway when a man coming from the opposite direction just took a look at me and he was surprised how much similarity is between me and Robert. As later we found out he was the casting manager. We went in and they asked if I have any experiences as an actor, and they gave me a smaller role in the movie. I became Roberts dream. This may sound a bit weird, but in the story there is one part when I meet Robert (George), Im a rich guy, while hes poor. He sees himself in me, and decides hell become like me. I also got this role because we are the same in size with Robert, so it will look good in the movie he really can see himself in me. Our head was the one thing we had not the same, because his hat was big for me. But the size of our clothes completely matched.
– In the film are many famous actors and actresses. Uma Thurman, Christina Ricci and Kristin Scott Thomas also plays in it. They are big names in the film industry. The shooting wasnt that easy the first few days. It was very cold outside to shoot. There were a lot of fans waiting to catch a glimpse of Robert, they were able to stand whole day on Andrássy street freezing. At first I couldnt even speak with Rob, cause he was stressed because of the crowd. An actor is a human as well. During filming actors make a lot of mistakes in the text or they get the whole scene bad. When we were filming the indoor scenes he was much more relaxed. He came up to me and we talked. He asked me who I was and how long was I acting.
Uma Thurman completely enchanted me. We had a scene we filmed in Tihany. After the shooting we prepared to go back to the capital, but she [Uma] asked for a little time before leaving. I was curious what she wanted, so I watched her. She went back to the Balaton lake-side, because she wanted to take some flowers as souvenirs. Since this is a costume drama, Uma is wearing a big black dress. Adorable. She is very down-to-earth and funny. She did not act like a superstar. She had only one problem. She didnt like the cottage-cheese dumpling she ate one day. In the very last shooting day she invited me to the crew-party where also attended Roberts girlfriend, Kristen Stewart. When I met her, she just pointed to me, and said, "OMG, you really look like Robert!" Of course in English. That was all about meeting her.
I en exklusiv intervju med Next Movie har regissören David Slade erkänt att han nästan tog med bröllopsscenen i Eclipse.
“We discussed a lot of the things at the -writing stage — at one point, we were even going to shoot the wedding at the end of ["Eclipse"] but we knew there was another film coming,” Slade tells NextMovie exclusively.
“We knew that a lot of that could go into the next film. And we just made the most concise version of this story that we could.”
Han pratade också om hur de arbetade hela tiden under inspelningen av Eclipse. Trots att paparazzin svärmade kring inspelningsplatserna och fans som var där, Slade erkände också att filmteamet "bara arbeta, ingen lek"
“We had a very tight schedule so there wasn’t much time to be too sympathetic, to be honest,” Slade told me earlier today while promoting this week’s release of the Eclipse DVD (out Dec. 4). “We had to go. We had to shoot. We had shoot after shoot after shoot. We had a 50-day schedule which isn’t normally what you have for a film of this scale.
“So we just had to crack on,” he continued. “If anything, there wasn’t time to go, ‘How are you feeling today? Are you all right? What’s going on?’”
They were so busy that Slade says he never even had the chance to get to know Pattinson, Stewart and the rest of the cast too well. “All the time we spent together was working,” he said. “We never hung out and had a beer. We were rehearsing. If we weren’t rehearsing, we were shooting. If we weren’t rehearsing or shooting, we were sleeping.”
"It’s safe to say that for film fans of the non-“team-Edward” or “team-Jacob” variety, “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse” is the most accessible. It was choc full of action and included considerably less navel gazing than the previous installments. I’m biased of course, as I’ve known director David Slade since the days when I was in TV commercial production and he was primarily a commercial director.
I apologize in advance, as our natural direction of conversation leans towards the technical and we tend to veer off here and there. We talk about the challenges that “Eclipse” fight sequences presented, the complexities of shooting a movie in 3D (which he hasn’t done yet) and how he goes about choosing his next project.
George Lucas has gone back and re-done and re-done the Star Wars movies, re-done the special effects because he could. You’re not of that school?
Slade: Not so much. I’d like to re-do "30 Days of Night." There was definitely a point in the editorial process that everybody acknowledges we departed from the structure. It was the first hard R-rated horror that Sony had put out and there was a lot of trepidation. And I do believe there’s another film, I’d like to call it a "better film", there’s certainly another film in that material that we shot. That’s the instance where I would go back not to kind of remaster and just polish but to actually do a director’s cut and make the film what I set out to see. Now, of the three films I’ve made it’s the only one where that happened. And I think I put a lot of that down to personal lack of experience within the studio system. But “Hard Candy” is the director’s cut and actually pretty much “Eclipse” is pretty much exactly the film I wanted to make. So, once you make the film you wanted to make, I don’t really like the idea of going back and visiting it. I prefer to spend the years I have in my life moving onwards to something else.
Now, “Eclipse” is the biggest you’ve done in terms of size and budget?
Slade: Yeah, I guess technically speaking, but I would say this: you do commercials and you get a million dollars to make a commercial. If you add that up per day, it’s a bigger budget than doing a $100 million movie. I think at the end of the day the figures that are involved in movies don’t really add up to much. At the end of the day, the question is not how “much it cost?” but “is it any good?” It’s the same when you hear people say “oh this was a troubled production” or any kind of gossip. None of that lasts. At the end of the day, is the film any good or not? Technically speaking though I mean yes, it was the biggest budget not just films I’ve done, but actually I think it was the biggest budget “Twilight” movie of all of them. It was an epic huge thing with battles and you know massive huge sets and all kinds of special effects work and a very short schedule. Usually what happens when there’s not much time there has to be more money.
Right: the “impossible triangle?”
Slade: It’s an old cliché but it’s a true…as many clichés are: It’s time, money, quality. Pick two.
Was the largest set piece the vampire vs. wolves war scene?
Slade: I think the mountain top battle between Victoria, Edward, Riley, Sethwolf valor battle was probably the biggest most complex set piece. [I had to] make room in our schedule for me to go back and direct the key elements of that fight scene because the fight scene was like a three-act structure story. It’s not just, you know, a fight. It has a beginning, it has a middle, it has an end. It has various character traits that make things happen if they’re good. So, that fight sequence was one where the tree going over was a big part of the plot but was also part of the story because the story enveloped the character. The character of Victoria was that she was an escape artist. She always ran. And she was going to jump. She was going to get somewhere safe. She was always safe. So, a character is feeding into your fight. There’s no deion in the book that she jumps into a tree. It was just like, “Well let’s make her jump into a tree because...” and you work that way. You work out the ideas through -- she’s going to run away and she’s just to live another day but he’s going to have to find a way to bring her back with words. Still the character -- even though it’s a fight, you know? - And then at a certain point he’s got to use words to goad her into the proximity it’s going to take to fight, you know? It’s a very, very structured thing. We didn’t shoot it for days on end but it was certainly one of the most complex things to engineer. The actors went into training for it all and it was one of those things where I was solely kind of every day hammering away at until we shot it. And I think because there is a point where all of these things I’m talking about just randomly appear. They happen.
Slade: You know, in the end it was great in the first screening to hear everyone scream and cheer when Victoria dies. That worked.
That’s what you were working for.
Slade: Yeah, yeah. You got to the point when actually you’d taken a character who had been largely been brooding, internalized character and you turn it into a marauding beast for just a few moments. And this was such a great exciting thing to see and then she’s dead and it happens just like—bang! There’s nothing slow and deliberate about it. It just happens and yeah, that was a rewarding end and really really hard work."
Roberta är Krisens Bella double. Och hon pratar om Kristen och om hur hon blev castad till jobbet.
It all began in September when she and Raphael Martins, 22, Pattinsons look-a-like, did a photo shoot for a Brazilian newspaper. In late October, Roberta was called up to the producer Zohar, one of those responsible for filming in Rio after an indication by Raphael. "The cinematographer of the film joked that I was prettier than Kristen," she says. Prevented by contract to tell details of the shooting, Roberta had to hide the news from friends and even his brother Rafael, 11, who is a fan of the saga by Stephenie Meyer. Just told her mother. "The pay is in U.S. dollars. I can only say that it is good money," she says.
"Im not a fan. I saw the movie only because my friends said I looked like Kristen. I am not identical. We share the bright white skin, hair and delicate nose, " she says. On Monday (9), Roberta and Raphael participated in a romantic sequence in a waterfall in Paraty, a city of Rio, which lasted about 12 hours. The cast and crew are there from Monday (9), since according to the original story is in this tropical setting that Edward and Bella are the honeymoon. Roberta says that when the actors came to film at the Gloria Marina in Rios Zona Sul, Kristen shook her hand and Robert thanked her with a polite "thank you". "As I do not speak English, I did not try to respond back. They are really quick to shoot, no work at all" she says. "Sure, we wanted to take pictures and autographs with them, but we werent allowed. They were super friednly. Kristen is much prettier in person. "
LimeLife: Julia, youve just played this amazing role in Eclipse and we cant wait to hear about it. First though, can you tell us from where else we might know you?
Julia Jones: Probably the most notable thing was that I did a recurring role on ER. I appeared in their final season [as Dr. Kaya Montoya], so it was pretty cool to be a part of something that great and large as it was closing. Everybody was appreciating it, so it was a good time to be involved.
LimeLife: We heard that there were open casting calls for Eclipse. How exactly did you score the part of Leah Clearwater?
Julia Jones: The casting director Ive had a relationship with for a number of years. She actually just called us up and I went in and auditioned for the director David Slade and for her, and came back about a week later and read for some people from Summit and David again and some of the producers. And then I waited for about a month before I heard anything, and youre right, in that time they were doing huge casting calls and going up to Canada. I think they accepted tapes from anybody so really anyone in the world could put themselves on tape and potentially be seen by the casting people.
LimeLife: Okay, so basically you were tapped on the shoulder to audition for the biggest cinema craze of our time. What kind of relationship did you have with the Twilight series at that time?
Julia Jones: Its interesting because I hadnt read any of the books before I got the audition. I of course was aware of it, I have good friends who have been - I think "obsessed" is the right word - for quite some time. (Laughs.) Then when I got the call for the audition, I actually had a very serious visceral reaction. My heart started beating fast, its a very unusual thing but I think on some level I think I sort of felt like I knew that this was going to be something important and probably life-changing.
LimeLife: Julia, you were cast with a pretty dynamic and somewhat complex character. Can you tell us about Leah Clearwater?
Julia Jones: Yeah, totally. First of all shes the only werewolf whos a female, which is in itself a very cool thing, but she has this complicated backstory where she is heartbroken because the head of the pack Sam Uley left her for her best friend and her cousin. So in addition to that shes dealing with all the changes that you have in your body when you become a wolf, and as a girl theres really nobody who knows whats happening to her - shes really alone and out there and heartbroken at the same time. And it makes her very angry and mean, and really shes just in a lot of pain and she doesnt know how to ask for help so she lashes out.
LimeLife: What did you bring to Leahs character? Did you relate to her?
Julia Jones: The heartbreak is a very universal emotion and most of us have felt that - I have. So that was clearly part of it. But also just being so caught up in whats going on in your world emotionally that you cant connect to the outside world, thats something thats a hard thing. Anytime you go through something dark and painful, it makes you want to just withdraw from the world, except you cant. I explored what thats like a lot when I was preparing.
One of the fun things that I got to bring to her was just being a tomboy and hanging out with the boys. I was always a huge tomboy growing up and I was always competing. I was the only girl in my football league, and they were so mean to me! (Laughs). And so a lot of that was easy to draw on.
Här är en intervju med Robert Pattinson om "Breaking Dawn". Hon berättar b la. att han är livrädd för att spela pappa i "BD!"
Ja har översatt från Engelska till Svenska, så allt kanske inte blir helt korrekt ;)
"Vad ser du fram emot om att "vara Breaking Dawn" skott back-to-back som två filmer och Bill Condon styra dem?"
-Jag är glad att det är Bill Condon. Jag älskar hans saker. Jag har inte sett manuset ännu men jag är rädd om seriens slut. Det är en så stor säkerhet filt. Det är som ett nät. Du har råd att göra misstag när du har en annan "Twilight"-film att göra. Efter det, jag antar att du på egen hand.
-Jag är glad att "Breaking Dawn" kommer filmerna att göra tillsammans. Annars är det ganska svårt att passa en annan film i-mellan varje dos. Precis vad som hände i "Eclipse", med att få dig tillbaka till där det var innan. Jag hade ungefär en veckas förberedelsetid. Det var ganska stressigt i början. Med de två filmerna gjort tillsammans, kan du bo bara karaktär hela tiden.
"I tältet scen som redan är den mycket omtalade sak i "Eclipse", din vampyr karaktär är naturligtvis kallt, kroppstemperatur vis, medan Taylor, Jacob åker hem den grad att han bokstavligen varmare."
-Det blir liksom en udda scen. Det är ganska svårt. Det är otroligt deprimerande för Edward (skratt). Det gör honom som oerhört ointressant. Men jag har aldrig riktigt fick det i första hand. Det är som att ha några iskalla personen bredvid dig (skratt). Det är hemskt.
"Taylor berättade att du var alltid sprickbildning upp i den scenen."
-Jag var i ett väldigt konstigt rum när vi sköt den scenen (skratt). Jag höll får besatt av tanken på ordet "tankar" med en amerikansk accent. Det låter som "pruttar." Jag kunde inte komma över det hela dagen. Den första raden var, "Kan du åtminstone hålla dina tankar för dig själv?" Jag sitter i tältet och varenda gång, skrattar jag över den linjen. Taylor kom till den punkt där han var, "De ord inte ens låter likadant. Det är inte roligt alls. "
-Jag tror att jag var trött. Jag tycker att allt det här där vi måste chef varandra allt ganska roligt. Med tanke på att vi är i teen-girl tidningar och sånt ... Taylor har alltid skjortan av. Och jag har fått min lilla dricka (skratt). Vi försöker att handla alla macho. Jag tyckte det var jätteroligt.
"Snacka om dynamiken mellan de tre av er nu när Jacob får kyssa Bella i denna film."
-Det är konstigt. Inte nog med att de gör kysser scener-de aldrig göra det när jag är även på apparaten. Jag har ledig dag. Du känner dig verkligen som om någon är otrogen mot dig. Då du kommer tillbaka till den inställda. Och nästan alltid, det är efter en av sina scener där jag misstänker dem för att göra något. Det bara var så, varenda gång, jag skulle komma i arbete som i stil med "Så hur var det?"
"Kan du ställa in rak din Edward karaktär är en 100-år-plus-Old Virgin?"
-Jag tror han är ... hur gammal är han nu? Han måste vara 109 eller 110. Det är en diskutabel punkt med en annan vampyr i Alaska från den första boken. Det är kortfattat nämns. Men jag kan inte komma ihåg om det är faktiskt helt förklaras om han är oskuld eller inte. Jag tror att fansen vill tro han är.
"Eftersom dessa "Twilight" filmer är fantasy / romantik / thriller dramer, får jag fråga vilken kärlekshistorier inspirerat dig?"
-Jag måste låta riktigt cheesy och säga mina föräldrar. Mina föräldrar träffades när min mamma var 17 och min pappa var 26. De är fortfarande ihop. Jag växte upp i en ålder där alla får frånskild.
-Men när det gäller film har jag alltid gillat förtvivlad, smärtsam kärlekshistorier. Jag tror det beror väl på att jag fortfarande ung. Det finns en Godards film heter "Förnamn Carmen." Jag är inte ens ska försöka säga det franska uttal. Jag tyckte alltid att vara en av de mest sanningsenliga och inspirerande kärlekshistorier jag sett på film.
"Hur obekvämt är det att handla med kontaktlinser på?"
-Du kan inte känna ordentligt. Du kan inte svettas. Om du gör något för att svettas, börjar allt att bryta i ansiktet. Du kan inte ens psyke dig själv för en scen. Jag vet inte hur folk gör scener med kontaktlinser på. Jag tycker att det är omöjligt. Edward karaktär handlar om återhållsamhet och begränsar dig själv om allt. Han är inte särskilt översvallande person. En hel del av resultaten bör göras med ögonen men då får du undanröja denna möjlighet genom att kontakterna på. När jag gör andra filmer som jag inte behöver bära kontakter, andas jag en suck av lättnad.
"I "Breaking Dawn" så blir man en far och Bella blir en vampyr brud. Har du tips för Kristen att spela en vampyr? Känner du att du är mogen nog att spela en pappa?"
-Det är roligt eftersom jag spelar en pappa i vissa scener i "Breaking Dawn" och jag skildrar en i en film jag gör nu också. Jag är livrädd när ni gör det. Jag vet inte vad jag ska göra när det gäller dessa scener. Jag har klagat så mycket om att ha smink på och linser. Kristen är i stil med "Du är så patetisk. Du måste bara komma över det. Varför kan du bara få användas till det? "[Nu, sedan Kristen har att bära kontaktlinser, även], kan jag vara sist ut," Du vet hur det är. Du kommer att vara i ständig förvärras hela tiden. "Vilket är bra.
"Vi ser inte en massa killar som Edward som skyddar en flickas dygd. Vill du relaterar till honom alls? Hur gammal är du?"
-Jag tror jag har blivit mer gammaldags. Jag känner att jag redan är vända medelålders nu (skratt). Det är ganska trevligt att göra en serie filmer som många människor tycker att upprätthålla positiva dygder. En del tror faktiskt är filmerna ett gott inflytande på sina barn.
"Stephenie Meyer var på inspelningen av "Eclipse" oftare än hon var på de två första filmerna. Vad var det ut?"
-Det är inte skrämmande. Hon är verkligen trevlig. Hon gillar verkligen filmerna. Det var konstigt, dock. Jag märkte egentligen förrän mot slutet av inspelningen. Jag var som, "Stephenie har varit här varje dag" (skratt). Det var intressant. Hon är alltid öppen. Hon skulle aldrig komma in och skjuta något på oss. Hon var öppen för att besvara frågor.
"Du har en västerländsk projekt genre filmen, "Obundet fångar" i utvecklingen. Varför är du fascinerad av western?"
-Jag växte upp tittar västernfilmer. Min pappas favoritfilmer är alla västernfilmer. Jag hoppas att filmen händer. Det är en så komplicerad film för att få ihop eftersom det är egentligen inte en actionfilm eller något. Det är en något deprimerande romantiskt drama, varav hälften är i Comanche. Det kommer definitivt att vara annorlunda. Min karaktär är en enorm sträcka för mig.
"Du spelar gitarr. Hur viktig är musik för dig?"
-Det är verkligen viktigt. För övrigt är min syster en sångerska och låtskrivare. Agera har hjälpt och jag har aldrig riktigt haft något särskilt intresse. Den enda anledningen jag skulle starta ut skivor är förhoppningsvis så får jag ett namn inom musik och har bra folk som skulle vilja samarbeta med mig. Jag antar att ha ett namn i egenskap kan du få din fot genom dörren med en hel del musiker. Jag hoppas att jag kommer att kunna spela in lite grejer bara för mig själv. Tanken på att sälja det-så snart du börja göra det-det dör i en massa olika sätt. Det är för läskigt på den punkten. Då alla känner behovet av att bedöma det. Men om du inte tjänar pengar och du gör det själv, då ingen kommer att döma det.
"Twilight är mycket populärt bland ungdomar, däribland Jaden Smith. Vilken typ av böcker och musik tyckte du var när du var tonåring?"
-Jag var besatt av en författare som kallas Martin Amis när jag var tonåring. Jag läste allt. Varenda gång jag gick till en bokhandel, skulle jag se om han har andra böcker. Jag brukade köpa flera utgåvor av hans böcker.
Martin, Van Morrison och Jimi Hendrix-de var mitt folk när jag växte upp. Jag skulle tvångsmässigt samla in alla sina grejer.
-Det är roligt hur Jaden gillar "Twilight" sak. Han är som den första kille som är villig att erkänna det (skratt).
"Vad har hittills varit en livsförändrande upplevelse för dig?"
-Mina flyttar till gymnasiet. Jag sparkades ut från min första skola. Det finns ett helt system av skolorna i London där jag gick från en skola till en annan och sedan till universitetet. Alla gick i samma skolor. Men jag blev utsparkad. Jag slutade gå till en kulturskola där var nog den bästa som någonsin hänt mig.
"Varför blev du utslängd?"
En intervju med Carina Jansson (som översatt alla Twilight böcker)Intervjuen är från TwilightSweden.:)
Har böckerna varit svåra att översätta?
- Nej, det tycker jag faktiskt inte. Det är ett bra och lättillgängligt språk i dem och inte alltför många fackuttryck eller udda fraser, och det är alltid skönt när man kan få in ett flyt och översätta sida efter sida utan att behöva avbryta sig för att leta information.
Tycker du själv om böckerna? Vilken tycker du bäst om?
- Ja, jag tycker väldigt mycket om dem! Gillade stora delar av Eclipse, framför allt när man fick mer bakgrundsinformation om de enskilda vampyrerna och om varulvsstammen, men om jag måste välja en får det nog ändå bli Twilight.
Hur är det att jobba som översättare? Vad är det bästa/sämsta med ditt jobb?
- Jag trivs alldeles utmärkt med mitt jobb! Det bästa är nog variationen och flexibiliteten, det sämsta att det är så stillasittande och “ensamt”.
Hur går du tillväga när du översätter en bok? Läser du först hela boken och sen översätter? Eller börjar du översätta direkt?
- Jag börjar alltid översätta direkt. Är det en dålig bok vill jag inte läsa den fler gånger än nödvändigt, och är det en bra bok vill jag gärna bevara spänningsmomenten – tror också att översättningen blir bättre då!
Hur har du översatt ordet imprint?
- Än så länge med “prägling”, får väl se om korrekturläsare och/eller redaktör har några invändningar mot det :)
Hur lång tid tog det att översätta Twilight och New Moon?
- En och en halv månad, ungefär.
Tycker du att man på något sätt ‘förändrar’ karaktärerna när man översätter en bok till ett annat språk?
- Nej, det tycker jag nog inte – med undantag för att eventuella egenheter i deras språk och sätt att uttrycka sig kanske kan gå förlorade.
Har du stött på några svårigheter när du översatt böckerna? I så fall, vilka?
- Ja, det har jag säkert … men ingenting som har stannat kvar i minnet när det gäller just Twilight-serien. Då finns det böcker som är mycket, mycket värre, som Piratika-serien till exempel, där jag ständigt fick ta pauser i översättandet för att leta termer och referenser, eller bara för att grubbla över vissa uttryck och namn.
Har du någon kontakt med Stephenie Meyer?
- Inte regelbundet, men vi har mejlat fram och tillbaka några gånger och hon svarar alltid väldigt snabbt när jag hör av mig och undrar över något.
