We shared with you a while back that James Franco and Robert Pattinson were in a battle to play Jeff Buckley, who rose to fame covering songs like “Hallelujah” before drowning at age 30 in the ’90s. We assumed James Franco would prevail, since he looks so Buckley-esque and also has an Oscar nomination to his name. But rumor has it that a dark horse third contender has entered and won the race—Penn Badgley of “Gossip Girl,” aka Blake Lively‘s ex. This allegedly has Robert Pattinson upset. “Rob hasn’t heard ‘no’ a lot lately, so he’s really bummed. He was passionate about this project,” a source told HollywoodLife.com.
Penn looks enough like Buckley, and is a pretty good actor. But can he sing? Keep reading »

“When I first came to L.A., it was very easy to convince people I was a member of the royal family. I hadn’t worked for three years — I was unemployed in London — and when people asked what I’d been doing, I told people I went to RADA [Royal Academy of Dramatic Art] with Prince William. People would think, ‘You’re English, I completely believe you!’”
—Robert Patttinson reveals to Graham Norton the name-dropping trick he used when he first moved to the United States to pursue acting. It’s not bad. But I think he could have taken it farther. I mean, why not make himself a royal cousin or a Duke of whatnot? [PopEater] Keep reading »
We’re still not 100 percent sure if Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart are a couple. But it sure looks like they’ve adopted a puppy together. The two supposedly got the little guy from a shelter in Baton Rouge, LA, and named him Bear. Nikki Reed was the one who let the news of their co-pet ownership slip saying, “I didn’t even know they got a dog.” When reporters pounced on the use of the word “they,” she said, “Oh no, it’s Rob’s dog.” But then Robert and Kristen took him to the vet together. And brought him to set in Vancouver. Now, Kristen is caring for the dog in New York while Robert is in London promoting “Water for Elephants.”
So my question is: is it a good idea for couples to adopt pets together before making things permanent? I’m thinking of a good friend who now gets her pooch every other week after she and her boyfriend broke up. [E! Online, Hollywood Life] Keep reading »
