Everyone else is as sick of the “Twilight” movies as I am, right? We’re just ready for this long national nightmare to be over. A second “Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 2″ trailer debuted last night at the MTV VMAs, revealing how the budget for creepy contact lenses in this second movie was through the roof. And it’s weird to see Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart onscreen together after this summer of discontent. It’s going to be a long, uncomfortable autumn of movie promotion and frankly I’d love to put that behind us as well.
Sorry, Twihards, but “Twilight” is really terrible. Which is why I love this “Bad Lip-Reading” version of the movie so much. I mean, it can’t really get more ridiculous than it already is, can it? [YouTube]
I’m loath to say it, but Kristen Stewart‘s tête-à-tête with married “Snow White and the Huntsman” director Rupert Sanders has done wonders for the careers of the scorned. Robert Pattinson is in higher demand than ever, appearing on numerous talk shows (and, might I add, being incredibly charming and self-effacing whilst doing so), and Liberty Ross, who had little name recognition in the past (she abandoned her flourishing career to support Rupert in Los Angeles), has seen an undeniable uptick in popularity. The model/actress made her first red carpet appearance since news of the scandal broke at yesterday’s “Lawless” premiere, looking fresh-faced and formidable in a pair of menacing high-heeled booties. Sure, it’s not her best look given the casual nature of the outfit, but if she’s trying to convey that she is not to be fucked with (and I think she is), it’s definitely working. To which I say: Liberty Ross, you are fierce as hell, and there isn’t a trampire in the world who can take that away.
Whether you’re a Will Ferrell enthusiast, a New York Post headline writer, or just an asswipe, this “Kristen Stewart is a trampire” T-shirt is for you!
Although why you would want the “trampire” shirt when you could have the “I Want To Take A Dump On Kristen Stewart” one instead, I don’t know. To each his own. [Skreened]
I don’t really need to tell you what’s going on with Kristen Stewart right now. If you have an Internet connection, you know. She cheated on “Twilight” co-star Robert Pattinson with Rupert Sanders, the married director of “Snow White and the Huntsman.” The scandal has given birth to a plethora of gossip rag covers, a few awkward TV interviews and speculation on how the final film in the “Twilight” franchise might be affected by the breakup of its stars.
I don’t want to talk about any of those things.
With everybody—from gossip hubs like Perez Hilton and TMZ to legitimate bastions of entertainment journalism like Variety and The Hollywood Reporter—keeping the public informed about the (possibly career-ruining, if reports can be believed) scandal, what gets me most curious about this whole thing is why people care so much.
