Rob as Salvador Dali

People magazine has a great article
about Rob’s new role in Little Ashes as Salvador Dali. xD

Twilight star Robert Pattinson can’t always play a vampire heartthrob. 
In his next movie, Little Ashes, set in 1922 and described by Variety as an “arty Bohemian romp,” the London-born actor, 22, plays Spanish surrealist painter (1904-1989) Salvador Dalí as a young man – in love with the poet Federico GarcÍa Lorca, played by Javier Beltran. 
The two meet at university, with Lorca attracted to what the movie’s production notes call Dalí’s “bizarre blend of shyness and rampant exhibitionism.” Hey, beats a bite in the neck. 
Little Ashes opens in late March. 

Thanks to Cold Twilight for the tip! And, Rob, loving the stache! Not quite as awesome as Charlie, but it’s getting there. Lol. Everytime I see him with the handelbar-mustache, I giggle a little. But a good giggle Rob! A good one! xD Read the article HERE!



MTV Interview: Kristen and Joan Jett”

Along with the slues of videos of Kristen from Sundance we have already seen, MTV has up another one, accompanied by a great interview. As most of us know, Kristen will be portraying Joan Jett in the up-coming, The Runaways.

“I’m, like, vibrating,” grinned Stewart when we asked about “The Runaways,” a 1970’s-era flick about the influential all-girl rock band fronted by Jett and Lita Ford. “I’m just so excited about that movie.”

“I’m really, exceedingly, more excited than normal,” she laughed.

Directed by Floria Sigismondi, the flick will tell the story of the teenage band who were brought together and thrown into leather and lace, performing such sneer-filled songs as “Cherry Bomb.” Although they barely lasted four years and only put out a handful of albums, the band was able to overcome their sleazy “jailbait” gimmick to become an influential punk band that would eventually help birth such successors as The Breeders, L7 and The Donnas.

Taylor Wants A GirlFriend

Gossip Teen recently interviewed Taylor Lautner and he talked about something that everyone has been wondering: DOES HE WANT A GIRLFRIEND?

Super cute and how Taylor Lautner, who has been way too busy working out to play the teenage werewolf in Twilight sequel, “New Moon”, confessed he is single and looking for the perfect girlfriend.

Taylor says: “I look for someone honest, loyal and someone who can be a dork. I don’t want anybody too uptight and trying to impress me. If they’re just a dork and really outgoing and fun, then that works for me.”

Any dorks out there want to apply??

Taylor!! IM A DORK!!! Although, I am sure anyone who isn’t a dork will surely turn if given the chance to be with Taylor! Source.



Peter Facinelli: Pro-Dakota

PopEater.com has up a great article about Peter Facinelli being Pro-Dakota. And can I just say that Peter is the most awesome guy in the world and I wish I was his kid?

“I always think of her as this 12-year-old girl, but she is older now. What is she like 16 now?” he joked.
Fanning, who turns 15 in February, is in talks to play bloodsucker Jane opposite Robert Pattinson in ‘New Moon.’ The character of Jane is described in casting docs as a terrifying petite blond with a “Botticelli angel-like face… [and] crimson irises.”
According to reports, there were no auditions and the part was just handed to Fanning. Facinelli believes she will make a great addition to the cast and bring something new to the movie.
“I have been very fortunate to work with great people. The [‘Twilight’] cast is really great. We are like a family,” Facinelli said. “[During filming] I took on the father figure role, and they were all my kids. I love all of them,” he added.
They are exactly like a family! Awwwe. Read it all here!

My Park Magazine has up an article where they talk to Kristen about New Moon. And, just like the rest of us, she’s pumped for the sequel.

Kristen Stewart is “really excited” about ‘New Moon’.

She told MTV: “It’s such a machine now. All of a sudden, this movie has become something biggerWith all the expectations – usually, you make a movie and think, ‘If it touches people, great; if it doesn’t, then you move on to the next one, and no one’s personally affected by it.’ But everyone’s really sensitive with any changes right now.”

The actress says she can’t wait to reprise her role as Bella Swan in the sequel to hit vampire love story ‘Twilight’ but is stunned by how big the movie franchise has become.

She expressed her fandom for all things Twilight and that she would love to be in the film.

Access Hollywood

“I think it’s too soon to tell if I’ll for sure be doing it, but it’s so great,” she told Access Hollywood on Saturday at the junket for her latest film, “Push.” “I’m a really big fan of that series and the first film and all the actors in it, so it would be wonderful.”

E! Online’s Marc Malkin reported on Thursday that Dakota was currently negotiating for the role of Jane, a member of the deadly Volturi vampires from Italy, where much of “New Moon” takes place.

Following Malkin’s report, a rep for Summit Entertainment confirmed to Access there had been talks with the actress. 

“We are considering all actors that have the unique requirements for the look of Jane — Dakota being one of them,” a rep for Summit told Access.

The Insider

Asked by “The Insider” whether the rumors were true that she’d signed on for the ‘Twilight’ sequel ‘New Moon,’ Dakota tells us: “I really hope that works out. It would be interesting, really fun to be a part of. I’m a huge fan of all those actors. So, it’s too soon to tell right now, but I really hope that it does happen.”

Dakota, 14, tells us that although contracts haven’t been signed yet, she does hope to join the cast of ‘New Moon,’ possibly as the sadistic bloodsucker Jane.

“It would be so cool to play a vampire,” she gushes.

Chris Weitz on New Moon

USA Today has an article up called “Move over, movie vampires: Werewolf Pack is Back!” In it, it talks about a bunch of movies werewolves star in such as Wolverine, Underworld, and of course, the upcoming New Moon.

New Moon, due Nov. 20 and based on the second volume of the Twilight saga, expands upon a supernatural love triangle. While vampire Edward (Rob Pattinson) runs away to Italy to keep his mortal teen queen Bella (Kristen Stewart) out of danger from others of his kind, she makes time with the less-complicated Jacob (Taylor Lautner) as he finally reveals his hairier, scarier side.

Director Chris Weitz (The Golden Compass) picks up where Twilight‘s Catherine Hardwicke left off on the production that starts shooting March 23. One of his first tasks on the sequel was deciding to keep Lautner, whose gangly Native American high-schooler in the first film transforms into a hulking giant over the course of the book series as he fulfills his tribe’s destiny.

“Taylor is a formidable guy, kind of a great tool in the toolbox,” Weitz says of the nearly 17-year-old actor who has been working out daily and has packed on 29 pounds, most of it muscle. “In the first movie, we did not see or recognize how dangerous a character he could be.”

As for Taylor himself, “he can kill me with his left pinky. But he is too nice to do that. There is something compelling and sexy about him. He captures the spirit of Jacob.”

Grounded in ‘real world’

The backdrop of the Twilight books might be a gothic fantasy, but the filmmaker sees his characters as expressions of emotional attitudes shared by young people. “One of the great things of Stephenie Meyer’s novels is that she keeps them very grounded in the real world,” Weitz says.

“The vampires are about distance and reserve,” he says about the contrast between his male leads. “Edward represses his desire to do harm. Jacob is very warm and emotional, but also feels the heat of anger. When he transforms, it’s like losing your temper — sudden, explosive and lightning-quick.”

Where Bella is concerned, he adds, “Edward represents the unattainable perfection of first love. Jacob is friendship.”

I think I really like this Chris Weitz guy. He will be an excellent director for New Moon! To read the rest of the articles, click HERE.
