“New Moon,” the second movie in the Twilight Saga, hits theaters this Friday, and it seems the owner of what is used as the Cullen’s home in the film has decided to cash in on the franchise’s popularity by putting his home on the market this week. The five-bedroom West Vancouver house features an outdoor pool, hot tub, and a koi pond on a 1/2-acre of land, along with 20-foot ceilings and a chef’s kitchen. Twihards are probably salivating at the mouth, dying to live in — or see! — the place Edward and his fam call home, but it won’t be cheap or easy. Viewings of the house are by appointment only, and the asking price is $3,298,000. The Cullens certainly did well for themselves. [Jason Soprovich via Luxist] Keep reading »
OK, most of the webiverse will want to kill me for admitting this … but I just don’t get the “Twilight” obsession. I read the first book just to see what the hullabaloo was about and thought it was thoroughly “eh.” I’m not interested in reading the others, or following K-Stew and R-Patz’s are-they-or-aren’t-they drama, or lining up for a midnight showing of “New Moon” tomorrow night. And Miley Cyrus may be the only celeb on the planet who feels the same way as I do! In a recent interview with a Cleveland radio station, Miley said of the “Twilight” films, “I’ve never seen [them] and nor will I ever. I don’t believe in it. I don’t like vampires. I don’t like the wolf that pops out of the screen when I’m watching my TV at night. I don’t want anything to do with it.” I hear ya sister! [PopEater]
That said, I know that many of you out there are Twihards. And most celebs are with you—they will be there opening night … with fangs on. After the jump, the stars who can’t wait for “New Moon.” Keep reading »
“[This mom said] ‘Excuse me Taylor…. I’m wearing the Team Taylor panties right now. Is there any way I can take them off for you and just have you sign ‘em quick?’…. And the daughter goes, ‘Mom, come on!’ The mother told her daughter, ‘Honey, don’t worry. This is what we do at these things.’ And security stepped in and said, ‘No ma’am, this is not what we’ll be doing.’”

We don’t mean to sound harsh here, but it’s probably wise for Kristen Stewart to buckle down and get a stylist, or at least replace the one she’s presently working with, if she has one. She’s been looking a bit off at “New Moon” events all week, but when it comes to this getup, we can remain silent no more. Look closely at this very odd dress and notice the ill fit, unflattering silhouette and see-through panels that reveal her panty line and side boobs. What in the hell is going on here? Yes, the sheer trend is, like, a thing now, but it’s definitely one of those proceed-with-caution trends. We’re not even sure The Fashion Peacekeepers could find anything positive to say about this frock. It’s just puzzling. Keep reading »
I was an English major. And I read (and devoured) the Twilight books. My friends insist these things ought to be incompatible. I’m supposed to believe in standards! The Oxford comma! And the canon! And I do, but along with all of teenage America, I like Twilight too. And I’m completely unashamed … Keep reading »
Another day, another Twilight headline. Today, Prospect.org has an interesting article in which writer Sady Doyle (who defended Megan Fox on The Frisky) points out how books in Stephenie Meyer‘s Twilight series are a smash hit (Breaking Dawn, for example, sold 1.3 million copies on its first day), but they get a hell of a lot of flak from … well, everybody.

Dang, the naked celebrities sure are coming out of the woodwork today, heh. Nineteen-year-old “Twilight” (heard of it?) star Christian Serratos poses nude for a new PETA ad, just in time for the “New Moon” opening next week. Um, yeah. [PETA] Keep reading »
Taylor Lautner fans will see a whole lot of Taylor when ‘New Moon’ hits theaters. Even the newly bulked-up star has to laugh at one (of many) shirtless scene where he whips off his shirt to tend to a Kristen Stewart head-wound.
“I start laughing so hard every time I see that scene,” Lautner related at the ‘New Moon’ press day. “‘Oh you’re bleeding? Okay let me fix it.’ It’s so embarrassing.” Keep reading »
Sorry, but I haven’t gotten sick of making fun of “Twilight” yet. With its cheesy dialogue, hoards of screaming “Twihards” and complete and total sell-out status (think: “Twilight” tours, “Team Edward” T-shirts) I have no shortage of material. But I’ve been outdone by Ivy League satire specialists the Harvard Lampoon, who just released Nightlight, a 160-page book about an awkward geek named Edwart Mullen and his klutzy U-Haul-driving lover, Bella Goose. Edwart is a seriously craptastic driver and should the couple’s love continue to grow, Bella faces getting dismembered in a horrendous car accident. It’s a forgone conclusion that they’re going to get together, though, because Edwart likes the grapefruit-y smell of Bella’s blood. Oh yeah, and the front of the book reads, “About three things I was absolutely certain. First, Edwart was most likely my soul mate, maybe. Second, there was a vampire part of him—which I assumed was wildly out of his control—that wanted me dead. And third, I unconditionally, irrevocably, impenetrably, heterogeneously, gynecologically, and disreputably wished he had kissed me.” Wait, what’s that I hear? Pre-teen girls all over the world are screaming in rage. Heh. [LA Times] Keep reading »
Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson are being even more confusing than usual this week. The December issue of Harper’s Bazaar hits newsstands soon, featuring the pair on the cover and in a hyper-romantic photo spread. The cover story is essentially all about their relationship—their first meeting (auditioning for “Twilight” and being thrown into a make-out scene together) and who is more romantic (Rob, apparently). Heck, for half of the story, the two even play the “Newlywed Game,” answering questions about who spends more time on their hair, who is more egotistical, and who is more superstitious. But wait, what’s this? In an Entertainment Weekly roundtable interview yesterday, Kristen got crazy worked-up and dropped a few f-bombs when asked about whether they are dating. Yeah, it’s really hard to understand why people want to know when you FAN THE FREAKING FLAMES.
Check out the photos and the best quotes from these interviews after the jump. Keep reading »
