PETER FACINELLI NEVER TIRED OF MEETING TWILIGHT FANS.
"When I get in a room filled with Twilight fans theres so much energy in the room and it completely recharges my batteries," said Facinelli, by phone, earlier this week.
The actor, who portrays the father figure Carlisle Cullen in the "Twilight" movies was recently in Canada filming the last two installments of the popular series. He said filming was expected to be complete on the "Breaking Dawn" installment by the end of this week. Its expected to debut in the fall.
Facinelli will be prepared to engage in lots of "Twilight" talk - but cant spill any beans about the new movies - as well as his role in "Nurse Jackie" and other movies and television series when he makes an appearance Sunday at Westfield Hawthorn Shopping Center in Vernon Hills, Ill.
The actor will sign autographs, take pictures and talk with fans from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. in Macys Court at Hawthorn. A V.I.P. Meet and Greet will take place from 11:30 a.m. to noon. His appearance is being done in conjunction with the charity Alexs LemonadeStand Foundation and a portion of the proceeds from autographs and photos will benefit the group. Autographs cost $25 while photos are $40. (Cash only).
Facinelli said hes happy to support the foundation, which is dedicated to finding a cure for childhood cancer.
"Awhile back I was on the Internet and I read about Alexs Lemonade Stand Foundation and the story was just so inspiring to me. Alex was 8 years old and she had cancer. She used to hold these lemonade stands outside of her house to try to raise funds to find a cure for her disease. When she passed away her parents took this idea and they created the AlexLemonade Stand Foundation in honor of their daughter and to keep her memory alive in hopes of one day maybe parents like themselves wouldnt have to go through the trauma that they went through," he said.
As the father of three daughters with his actress wife Jennie Garth, Alexs story really touched Facinellis heart.
"Im happy to spend my time to raise awareness for a good cause," Facinelli said.
About his involvement with the "Twilight" movies, Facinelli said he almost had nothing to do with the Cullen clan.
"When I first got the phone call asking Hey, do you want to be in a vampire movie?, I said No! I was thinking it would be some kind of B-horror movie with blood and guts and bats and caves. Then I read the book and it was really a beautiful love story set in this timeless classic backof a vampire tale," he said.
Facinelli believes "Twilight" really caught on with people because "it has a lot going for it."
"Its a classic love story. ... And I think people really latch on to the family element. The Cullen family is a family that really sticks up for each other and has a lot of love for each other."
Roberts film Water For Elephants har nu haft premiär i de flesta länder i världen (Sverige hölls premiären den 22 april) och nu åker han runt för att "fira det". Här är han på premiären för hans film i Paris:
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.
Fans have waited years to see Bella (Kristen Stewart) and Edward (Robert Pattinson) tie the knot, and the wedding scene, scheduled for the end of production on The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, proved to be equally climactic for those involved. “It was one of the coolest things that I’ve done,” says Stewart. “There was a certain point when I walked on set, and I saw everyone from the entire cast sitting there in the pews, about to do their bit. And it was just so perfect for me in that moment. It was so emotional in such a real way. I literally felt like thanking them for coming.”
But filming wasn’t always quite so idyllic. As the stars and director tell EW, Breaking Dawn Part 1 and 2(in theaters November 18 and November 2012) involved a grueling, globe-trotting shoot, and scenes far darker, bloodier, and more polarizing than any in the franchise so far. If audiences haven’t matured with the Twilight books, they’re about to grow up fast. “We shot everything — whether it’s the lovemaking or the childbirth — as potent and powerful as it can be,” says director Bill Condon, who knew he was working within the constraints of a PG-13 rating. “It will be interesting to see whether there will be people who think it too disturbing for this universe.” For her part, Stewart wishes the movie could have been even truer to the graphic nature of the book — not so much the honeymoon sequence (“It feels like a real love scene, not necessarily vampire-y, which is good”), but the brutal birth of the baby, Renesmee. “It’s funny because when [the PG-13 issue] comes up, everybody thinks it’s all about the sex,” she says. “The birth is really effective, and I’ve heard it really hits you in the face. But what it could have been? It could have been shocking and grotesque, because that’s how it was written in the book.” She sighs: “I would have loved to have been puking up blood.”
Taylor Lautner, who plays Jacob, says that even being a member of the wolf pack didn’t have its privileges. “Everybody is always complaining to me that I don’t have to wear the contacts, I don’t have to wear the white makeup or wear wigs and all that stuff. And I’m like, ‘I’m the one in the freezing rain and cold not wearing a shirt! I paid my dues in New Moon and Eclipse.’” And as for his plot arc in Part 2, which will involve falling for — or imprinting on — Renesmee? “There were many times I walked up to Stephenie [Meyer] and asked her, ‘What exactly is imprinting?’” says Lautner. “It’s still a very confusing thing for me, so don’t ask.”
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.
Vad tar casten med sig hem från Twilight filmerna?
"I kepp everything from the set. Ive stolen all of Edwards clothes."
"My original Esme bracelet. Ive seen reproductions of it in stores, but I want to keep the one that I wear once we finish [filming]. Its mine!"
"All my character wears is jean shorts, so Ill have to go with those. Thats my only option!"
"Emmetts Jeep! Ive wanted it since we shot the first movie. I keep saying that, but nothings happened. Im still waiting!"
"My relationship with everybody from set. We get along like a real family. Our relationship is special."
"Vampires dress really well, so it would have to be Rileys jacket. When you run its a bit flamboyant, but it looks good. I recommend running in those jackets."
"In Eclipse, my character wears a cowboy hat and they let me keep it. Now that the movie is out, I wont be able to wear it as much."
"Carlisles ring! It has the Cullen crest, the symbol of the whole family, on it. Id like to take it home and keep it in a drawer somewhere. Once, I couldnt get it off my finger, so it did go home with me."
"The shorts are all Ive got! We keep using the same shorts but I keep getting bigger for each film, so the shorts keep getting tighter. By the end of the series, they’re going to be torn. Hey, sex sells and Im glad to sell it!"
Robert Pattinson and real-life love Kristen Stewart mark the end of the hugely successful Twilight franchise, shooting the sexy last scenes of the sagas final movie, Breaking Dawn, in the Caribbean. Under cover of darkness, the couple spent nearly three hours in the sea in a secluded cove, shooting hotly-anticipated love scenes between their characters, Edward Cullen and Bella Swan. Stewart showed off her slender frame in a lime green bikini, curiously unfastened at the back, as she strolled down the beach on St Thomas, in the US Virgin Islands, before joining Pattinson in the sea. Armed police patrolled the beach, while a police launch bobbed about in the sea, trying to ensure no one would get a glimpse of the filming, which went on until almost 5am.
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.
1. Talent embodied After his turn in Water for Elephants, this writer cannot wait to see what Pattinson does next after Breaking Dawn parts one and two hit the screen. The talent that showed great promise prior to Water for Elephants is now an absolute sure thing heading into what should be a very bright movie future for Robert Pattinson.
2. He’s hot Pattinson is a heartthrob. Period. Movie audiences treasure an actor who is not only easy on the eyes, but can deliver in the acting department. As George Clooney and Brad Pitt before him have achieved, Pattinson scores in being equally hot in looks while turning in a stellar performance.
3. A novel idea Bringing a bestselling book to the big screen and satisfying fans is one difficult task. With Pattinson’s turn as Jacob, fans of Sara Gruen’s book will be more than pleased with the onscreen incarnation of the character they have only imagined in their minds until now. Just as Twilight fans now have their mental picture for Edward, Water for Elephants fans can now put a face to the literary name.
4. Carry a film There is no question Pattinson’s character is the central individual in Water for Elephants. Without an astute performance by its lead, the film would not work as well as it does. By hitting it out of the park, Pattinson not only carries the film on his shoulders, he greatly contributes to it being a triumph of modern moviemaking.
5. Traveling soul Robert Pattinson perfectly embodies the soul of a Depression-era 20-something who has lost everything and must hit the road to find work and a future. It’s hard to explain how effective Pattinson is in capturing the elusive nature of how people of that era had to live. You simply have to see it.
6. Toe-to-Toe with Oscar winners Both Christoph Waltz and Reese Witherspoon are in the elite club of Academy Award winners. As the popcorn-Twilightguy, many wondered how he would fare opposite acting greatness. Walking out of Water for Elephants, it is the acting of Robert Pattinson that everyone will be talking about!
7. Twilight star going large A pop culture sensation proves his mettle with his turn in Water for Elephants. Twilight, New Moonand Eclipse may have made him a star, but Water for Elephants is what will solidify his place as one of his generation’s great actors.
8. Passion for animals Pattinson adores animals and his passion for our animal friends oozes out of his performance inWater for Elephants. His sensitivity towards Rosie the elephant is merely one aspect of a film that is touching beyond all others this year.
9. Playing Jacob After years of Jacob versus Edward discussions, we score one for Pattinson for taking a role where the character’s name is Jacob. After seeing Water for Elephants, you will never see the name of Jacob the same way again in the upcoming Breaking Dawn.
10. Chemistry Although Robert Pattinson has such great chemistry with Kristen Stewart in the Twilight series; his cinematic chemistry with Witherspoon in Water for Elephants is electric.
Some may have wondered about the Twilight guy starring opposite a living legend in Reese Witherspoon, but after witnessing the marvel of Water for Elephants, there is no actor on earth more perfectly cast to star as the love interest of Witherspoon’s character Marlena.

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.
Har Robert köpte löftesring till Kristen? - Rykte!
With the filming for The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn coming to an end, viewers are getting ready to say goodbye to Edward Cullen and Bella Swan. However the same cant be said for Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart. The couple, who have reportedly been dating since the movies began, look like theyre going to stay together for a very long time after Rob allegedly bought a diamond promise ring for Kristen.
According to Celebrity Mania, Rob splashed out a cool $17,000 for a "classic style" ring for his rumoured love. Speaking about the details of the ring, a source revealed: "The ring is rose-cut diamonds set in rose gold. Its a very feminine piece of jewellery and very old. The diamonds arent huge, and it doesnt look like an engagement ring."
It is thought that when Rob bought the ring, he apparently stated that he "knew Kristen would certainly love it."
Kristen Stewarts sminkör Beau Nelson twittrar om att han sminkade Kristen inför Water For Elephants premiären. Tyvärr befann sig inte Kristen på röda mattan, men dök upp senare under galan tillsammans med Robert.
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."
John Singleton (Abduction regissör) pratar om Abduction
It’s Taylor’s first lead role (outside of the ‘Twilight’ films) and a chance to show some range.
JS: It’s Taylor’s chance to really flex. The excitement about this is everyone loves this kid! But they don’t really know what he’s totally capable of doing. They don’t know he was a martial arts champion at the age of eleven. And that he’s physical. And that he’s actually funny. And that he’s charismatic and I was thinking they could see the potential in the ‘Twilight’ pictures then this is just like just letting it loose.
What did you do differently that would make him grow as an actor.
JS: What I did was really just brought him into my circle and have him really relax. We just watched movies together and talked about acting and I wanted him to see how there are people in the past that have been in the position that he’s like James Dean and Tom Cruise and young actors who evolved into young adulthood and the decisions that they make. And then we start just talking about the character. And he relaxed enough to improv for the first time. No one ever asked him to do these things. What’s amazing is that everyone doesn’t see how brilliant he is at his age at just picking up stuff. He’ll come and say, ‘I want to try something.’ And he never had a chance to do that. People just wanted him to look good. They didn’t want him to flex and do different stuff.
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.

Gerald Nicosia, second from left, and the cast of “On the Road,” Garrett Hedlund, Sam Riley and Kristen Stewart at boot camp.
In July, before filming began near the primary sets in Montreal, the cast and crew went through Beat boot camp — three weeks of immersion with Kerouac experts.
None of the cast and crew were old enough to remember the Beat era, so Mr. Nicosia, of Corte Madera, approached the sessions as if he were teaching ancient history, “like I was bringing them the Holy Grail.”
He said the actors were especially intense, knowing they would upset a lot of people if they didn’t portray the characters accurately."
NY Times article by Scott James Trepidations Aside. On the Road Becomes a Movie at Last.
Many consider Jack Kerouac’s “On the Road” sacred text. The novel was, after all, originally typed on a scroll. Translated into 40 languages, millions of copies of the Beat generation classic have sold worldwide since the novel was published in 1957, placing it among the 20th century’s most influential books.
When it comes to the big screen, however, “On the Road” has faced a Kerouac curse. Past efforts by Hollywood to adapt the author’s work have been failures. Now, somewhat quietly, “On the Road” has finally been made into a movie. The $25 million production, shot in San Francisco, Montreal and other locales, is scheduled for release this fall.

Exklusiva bilder: Robert Pattinson & Kristen Stewart party för Breaking Dawn & hennes föddelsedag!
Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart partied late into the night in Vancouver on Saturday to celebrate wrapping Breaking Dawn and her 21st birthday! The two were spotted sharing cigarettes outside the bash, and Robert took a turn on Taylor Lautners motorcycle. Taylor and Lily Collins went out on a date in the Canadian city earlier in the week, and this time she got to meet the whole cast and take a turn on the bike as well as they celebrated finishing filming on the last two Twilight movies. Robert and Kristen also huddled close and shared a quick kiss outside the soiree. Rob had a bit of a James Dean thing going on when he jumped on the bike, and he looked like he was having a great time letting loose with his friends.
På grund av läckningen av Breaking Dawn bilderna, tvingades Summit att ha polis övervakning när de skulle spela in de sista scenerna av Breaking Dawn filmerna, så att inga fans, paparazzis osv kom åt något material från filmen.

#4 på Cineplex’s 2011 Top 10 British imports.. - Robert
#4 ROBERT PATTINSON
As seen in: Twilight series, Remember Me
Why he’s on the list…We wouldnt dream of putting together a list of hot British thesps and not include the one and only RPattz, who went from scruffy bit player in Harry Potter to one of the most sought-after faces in show business. With two more Twilight flicks to go - Breaking Dawn, Part 1 and 2 - Pattinson has started to plot his post-tween fandom career, choosing an adaptation like Water for Elephants with Reese Witherspoon, Bel Ami with Uma Thurman andDavid Cronenberg mind-bender Cosmopolis. Aww, our Pattinson is growing up.
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.
You know what we love about Kristen Stewart, guys? Well yes, everything. But specifically her fashion sense, and the fact that she dresses like an actual human and not a BRATZ doll. While we swoon over her skinny jeans and sunglasses, we’re particularly fond of her sneaker collection, and fantasize about the massive shelving system it must take to hold them all. WHAT DOES HER CLOSET LOOK LIKE?! These are the things that keep us up at night.
We’ve often hit up red carpets with some sneaker questions for Kristen in our pocket, but have never had time to ask (you know, questions that have a bit more substance come first). But seriously – do you not love that the girl owns a gajillion pairs of Keds, Converse and Vans and wears them on the red carpet? What’s more relatable than a celebrity who hates heels?
We’re celebrating all things Kristen this week in honor of her 21st birthday, so please join us as we toast her enviable sneaker collection and her casual, cool style that is so uniquely her own. Now excuse us while we go try to look cool tying a knot in our t-shirt, and check back here tomorrow as we pay tribute to Kristen’s lengthy on-screen career!
Dessa cast från Twilight filmerna tippade en egen plats på Peoples Mestvackraste2011;
#4 ROBERT PATTINSON While Twi-hards cant get enough of Pattinson – or his waxen face – the British star whos played vampire Edward Cullen since 2008 is done with the look of the undead. "Im so sick of my own pallid, gray complexion," hes said. "Having that makeup put on every single day, as soon as you get it taken off, its like, Oh, you do look normal. You look healthy now." - People
#15 ANNA KENDRICK
At 25, Kendrick has impressed leading men like George Clooney and Robert Pattinson with both her brains and her beauty. "Annas a wonderful breath of fresh air," Up in the Air director Jason Reitman told Vogue of his Oscar-nominated star. "Shes not afraid of her intelligence."
#1 Kristen Stewart, 21
When you think Valley girl the Twilight star, who plays tortured loner Bella Swan, doesn’t exactly come to mind. And you won’t catch this California native slaving over the latest fashion and beauty trends. “I think it’s ridiculous that you need to look a certain way to be conventionally pretty,” she declares.
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.
Kommer ni ihåg när JoshHorowitz twittrade om att han hade en överraskning till oss Twilight-fans på Oscarsgalan? Överraskningen var ju att Robert blev live intervjuad av MTV, men nu har Josh ännu en överraskning till oss fans!
Vad kan detta vara för överraskning? Han skriver i alla fall att det inte kommer vara något Robert relaterat...
Nu har nomineringarna till MTV Movie Awards "bekräftats" men de har ännu inte presenterats. Dock, ser det ut som att Eclipse redan har "presenterats" och Summit tackar alla oss som röstat på Eclipse så att de kom vidare;
Best Buy, Union Square i New York - Wendell Pierce
Wendell Pierce, som ryktas ska spela J. Jenks, befann sig på Best Buy i Union Square som ligger i New York och promotade sin nya serie Treme. Tillsammans med sina co-stars MelissaLeo, ComingRob Brown och Evans. Under eventet dansade Wendell väldigt mycket och såg ut att ha kul!
Edward och Bella platsar 3:e platsen på Screenjunkies lista över de 10 best Couples In Movies;
3. Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart) och Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson) i Twilight. En normal tonåring flicka och en vampyr ger denna film liv. Den här serien av filmer är baserade på Stephenie Meyers extremt popluära noveller om relationen mellan de här två karaktärerna.
Nu har Edwards Volvo blivit bekräftad för BreakingDawn. Den här blir lite mer svart/silver. I Twilight tycks den mest gå efter boken. Själv tycker jag att i NewMoon och Eclipse var den alldeles för stor!
Som vissa av er vet, har bilder och screensgrabs från The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn som är i pågående arbete läckt på internet. Vi är väldigt stolta över den här filmen och också väldigt förtvivlade att det är ute i detta skede.
Filmen och de här fotona är inte klara i sitt rätta sammanhang. De var olaglit erhållna och den tidiga spridnigen är djupt upprörande för skådespelarna, filmskaparna och Summit som jobbar så hårt för att förverkliga filmerna till er i november 2011 och november 2012.
Snälla, för er som för de vidare, sluta. Och snälla, fast frestelsen är stor, kolla inte eller vidarebefodra deassa foton. Vänta på filmen i sin skönhet, helt klar för att ni ska uppskatta den.
Med vänliga hälsningar ,
Stephenie Meyer, Bill Condon, Wyck Godfrey och Summit Entertainment.
