Shailene Woodley Thinks “Twilight” Sends A “Toxic” Message To Teens

“Twilight, I’m sorry, is about a very unhealthy, toxic relationship. [The protagonist Bella] falls in love with this guy and the second he leaves her, her life is over and she’s going to kill herself! What message are we sending to young people? That is not going to help this world evolve.”

Our love for Shailene Woodley just grows and grows. In a new interview with Teen Vogue, the actress shares her thoughts on Stephenie Meyers’ wildly successful Twilight series and nails what is so problematic about the romance between Bella and Edward. Shailene stars in the upcoming “Divergent” films, which are based on another young adult novel series, only instead of her character Tris being completely obsessed with a dude (though she does have a hot romance of her own), she’s focused on, you know, overthrowing an oppressive totalitarian regime. Veronica Roth’s Divergent books are only slightly better written than the Twilight series, but plot wise, they are significantly more bad ass and inspiring. I’m psyched to see Shailene and the rest of the cast — including Kate Winslet and Julianne Moore! — bring the story to life on the big screen. [Teen Vogue]

“Twilight” Almost Used This Creepy Animatronic Baby As Bella And Edward’s Daughter Renesmee

  • Good call, “Twilight” producers, for keeping this creepy-ass animatronic baby out of the film! In the boxed set for the movie saga, director Bill Condon explained how the props department tried to create an “otherworldly”-looking baby for Edward and Bella but little Renesmee turned more into “Chuckesmee” — a baby Chucky doll. BRB, off to have nightmares. [Refinery 29]

Robert Pattinson Talks Anxiety, Insecurity, Being “Quite Sensitive”

The more Robert Pattinson speaks, the more I am convinced that he is The Boyfriend for me. This confounds my better judgement, because there are few things in the zeitgeist of the past ~5 years that I’ve enjoyed less than “Twilight,” but Robert Pattinson, the real Robert Pattinson, is a strange and wonderful being. He hates people and loves dogs! He would improve upon the “Twilight” sex scenes by adding a walrus! He also hates “Twilight”, maybe even more than we do!

In a new interview with Australia’s Sunday Style, the 27-year-old actor got really real, opening up about his anxiety and the insecurities that have defended him against the egotistical pitfalls of fame. “Up until [the moment I get out of the car to the event] I’m a nut case,” he told the publication. “Body dysmorphia, overall tremendous anxiety. I suppose it’s because of these tremendous insecurities that I never found a way to become egotistical. I don’t have a six-pack and I hate going to the gym. I’ve been like that my whole life. I never want to take my shirt off. I’d prefer to get drunk.” You and me both, Rob. He also confessed to being “quite sensitive” in relationships and thinking of himself as the best “gift giver.”

In all seriousness, though, what does it say about me that my ideal man is anxiety-ridden, insecure, very sensitive, and likes to drink? Probably nothing good. [Huffington Post]

Robert Pattinson Implies “Twilight” Super Fans Are Kind Of Pathetic

Erotic Twilight Fanfic Duo Nabs 5-Book Deal With Simon & Schuster

Congratulations, writers of Beautiful Bastard, you just got a five-book deal for creating hot, steamy Twilight fanfiction.

Seriously though, good on them.

We previously reported fanfic authors Christina Hobbs and Lauren Billings (who go by the pen name Christina Lauren) had landed a two-book deal with Simon & Schuster for their workThe Office. That was reworked into Beautiful Bastard, which will be released February 12, 2013, and a second book, Beautiful Stranger, will come out May 28, 2013. The premise, as written by The Hollywood Reporter:

The Office, which reimagined the Edward Cullen-Bella Swan relationship as a steamy love/hate romance between a boss and his assistant, was one of the pioneers of the Twilight fanfic genre, generating more than two million downloads, before being taken offline by the author in 2009…Beautiful Bastard tells the story of the whip-smart Chloe Mills, an intern at a company who is about to earn her MBA and embark on successful career, but finds her herself caught up in a steamy love/hate relationship with her ‘exacting, blunt inconsiderate’ boss Bennett Ryan.”

This Woman Covered Herself In “Twilight” Tattoos–And You’ll Never Guess Why

This is 51-year-old Cathy Ward. Back in 2008, Cathy started reading the Twilight books, and became so engrossed by the story that she forgot to eat, and ended up losing six dress sizes. To honor her new favorite books and her new body, she decided to cover every inch of her skin with Twilight tattoos. She’s currently almost finished with her back and arms, which include detailed portraits of Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, and Taylor Lautner. “I’m still continuing with them,” she says. “We’ve got plans and designs for my legs next year – the aim is to cover my whole body.” Reaching her goal will require hundreds of hours at the tattoo shop and an estimated $30,000 on top of the $11,000 she’s already spent, but Cathy insists it’s worth it. “I’m having a blast,” she says.

Twilight vampire reborn doll

… wrote no one ever.

We’ve written about “reborn dolls” before: they are extremely lifelike baby dolls which are often purchased by women who have suffered miscarriages and/or had abortions. Often women dress them up in outfits and give them names. The dolls are usually pretty creepy-looking on their own, but this vampire baby reborn doll for sale on Etsy.com is gives me extra chills.

In Defense Of (Being A Fan Of) “Twilight”

Between The Hunger Games, TwilightGame of ThronesThe Walking Dead, etc. etc., it seems that of late the publishing industry has more sway in Hollywood than ever before. (I could go on about the perception that the film industry is “creatively bankrupt,” but that, dear readers, is another story and shall be told another time.) This recent glut of book adaptations has led The Hollywood Reporter to create its first list of Hollywood’s 25 Most Powerful Authors. Included on the list are eight female authors: EL James (#4), Suzanne Collins (#5),Stephenie Meyer (#10), J.K. Rowling (#11), Charlaine Harris (#14), Laura Hillenbrand(#19), Candace Bushnell (#21), and Gillian Flynn (#22).

Yeah, I can see you gritting your teeth at Stephenie Meyer being included above J.K. Rowling. Stop it.

Pardon my ignorance, but I was not aware that there were people who called themselves vampires. Even being A Person Who Is On The Internet All The Time, this had eluded me. But alas, Movies.com has found the “Twilight” interview to end all “Twilight” interviews: a man named John Reason who lives in East Texas and claims he realized at age 14 that he is a vampire. John rides a motorcycle, wears cowboy boots, and was married for seven years … which all sounds pretty normal until you get to the part where he runs a site called RealVampireNews.com.

After the jump, here are some of the oddest tidbits from John Reason’s interview with Movies.com. Keep reading »
