While it’s been nearly two years since the final Twilight flick hit theaters, the wildly popular franchise still holds a special place in many fans’ hearts.
So when E! News caught up with Kristen Stewart at the NYC screening of her upcoming flick Camp X-Ray, we had to ask the 24-year-old stunner to share the most profound way her life has changed now that the Twilight franchise is officially in the rear view mirror.
“It’s difficult to answer that question,” the Clouds of Sils Maria star admitted before carefully taking a moment to reflect. “On an exceptionally obvious note, it’s opened a lot of doors, but I’ve become who I am because of that. It was five years of my life.”
Remember how Kirsten Stewart doesn’t care about being loved or hated because “it doesn’t keep me from doing my s–t”? Well, that hasn’t changed.
During an in-depth interview with Vanity Fair France, the actress (who also snagged the September issue cover!) revealed that she does feel a certain way about how things are handled in the media, but the stories and constant craving to know what’s going on in her private life doesn’t affect the 24-year-old because—well, to put it in K.Stew’s words—no one knows “d–k s–t” about what’s happening.
C’mon, did you expect anything less from K.Stew? Exactly. Anyway, here’s what she had to say about the press:
The Twilight movie series has wrapped for good – but its spirit lives on in the friendships formed over several movies together.
Actresses Ashley Greene and Nikki Reed were reunited Thursday night at the Heineken U.S. Open Kickoff Party at the Dream Downtown hotel in N.Y.C., and they were excited to catch up with each other.
Both stars travel, move between coasts and take on varied projects, such as Reed’s current directorial project for ESPN, Nine for IX, so it’s a rare moment when they find time to reconnect, the pair told PEOPLE.
“We worked so closely for so long and it’s strange because you become this family unit, and the series ended and you’re pulled [apart],” Reed explained of the cast, which included Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart. “You kind of hope that you cross paths, and we all keep in touch like via text or email or whatever, but it’s not often we all get to be together.”
There is a moment in The Rover, David Michôd’s futuristic western set in the Australian outback, in which Robert Pattinson’s character sits in the cab of a truck at night listening to the radio play Keri Hilson’s hit Pretty Girl Rock. The night is black and the radio tinny, and softly Pattinson begins to sing along. “Don’t hate me ’cause I’m beautiful,” he sings, his voice high and whiny, the lyrics muffled by lips that cling to dirty teeth. “Don’t hate me ‘cause I’m beautiful.”
?It’s a pivotal moment for Rey, the slow, needy, uncertain young man Pattinson plays, but it also feels like something of a reference point in the career of the actor himself; a small reminder for the audience of just how far he has run from his days as the pretty-boy Hollywood pin-up.
The Pattinson who walks into our interview this morning seems to play a similar trick, pointing out, two steps into the room, that the hotel carpet “looks like a Magic Eye picture”. And indeed it does – a bold, blurry pattern in stripes of cream and black. But Pattinson’s remark also serves to shifts attention neatly away from himself, as if he is weary of being the centre of it, the face that everyone stares at.
Kristen Stewart has been given the prestigious honor of landing Elle magazine’s September cover.
The 24-year-old is snapped rocking layered Chanel necklaces—which is fitting considering she’s currently the face of the fashion house’s Paris-Dallas collection—and a metallic low-cut cocktail dress.
K.Stew is also photographed wearing this season’s most coveted couture while posing in a grocery store near her hometown in West Hills, Calif.
But it’s not all fun and fashion for the brunette star, as she opens up to the women’s mag about the pitfalls of fame.
Aww…Robert Pattinson is one proud little brother!
It was reported in late July that the 28-year-old Twilight alum’s 31-year-old sister, Lizzy Pattinson, passed a closed-door audition for The X Factor U.K. in front of judges Simon Cowell, Louis Walsh, Cheryl Cole and Mel B, which means she could end up appearing on the singing competition series’ 11th season.
“I’m like, so ridiculously proud of her,” a beaming Rob told Grazia Daily in an on-camera interview at a photo call for his movie The Rover in London on Wednesday. “I would never have the balls to do that, ever, in a million years. I can’t believe she’s done it. So, it’s amazing.”
Filming The Rover in a remote part of south Australia with cast and crew all staying in a local pub was just about perfect, says Robert Pattinson. The filmmakers all mucked in together, braved filming in soaring temperatures, and at night bonded over a drink or two. Pattinson wouldn’t have had it any other way and says that it helped director David Michôd and his cast and crew build an unbreakable bond.
“It was amazing,” he says. “Because the whole crew was staying in the same place and there was nothing else to do, we were living in a pub. It’s annoying if you’re in an unfamiliar city and all the people you work with are from that city, they all go home, so you’re just stuck in your hotel.
“When you can hang out with a bunch of new people, you get close to them really quickly, especially when there’s literally nothing else to do. It’s really fun. I hadn’t done that for a long time. I had a fantastic experience making this film.”
Kellan Lutz gets truly into character in this exclusive, behind-the-scenes look from Tarzan.
Cameras take us behind the motion-capture picture to see how it was really filmed, into the recording studio and Kellan‘s co-star Spencer Locke chats up the film, now out on DVD and Blu-ray NOW.
Tarzan summary: During an expedition to a remote African jungle, the Greystoke family’s helicopter crashes, leaving one survivor: the young boy J.J., nicknamed Tarzan (Lutz). Raised by gorillas, Tarzan lives by the laws of the jungle — until he encounters another human being, the courageous and beautiful Jane Porter (Locke).
For Tarzan and Jane, it’s love at first sight — and the beginning of a thrilling adventure — as Tarzan uses his instincts and intellect to protect his jungle home and the woman he loves.
What happens when two young, hot, single stars get together to make a movie halfway around the world?
Kristen Stewart and Nicholas Hoult are about to find out.
The day after sources confirmed Hoult has split with longtime girlfriend Jennifer Lawrence, he and Stewart took to the stage in Tokyo at a press conference to announce the start of production of their sci-fi movie, Equals.
“I can’t stand him,” Stewart joked of Hoult, according to the Boston Herald. The two, both 24, were spotted earlier this week sharing a meal at a sushi restaurant.
He’s the 28-year-old British actor who has survived trial by fire – the Twilight phenomenon, tabloid hysteria – to become one of our most promising leading men. Over the next few months, you’ll see him deliver top-drawer performances in movies by David Cronenberg, Werner Herzog and Anton Corbijn. First, The Rover, this summer’s must-see film. To celebrate, Esquire’s man in LA invited September’s cover star over for beers and a barbecue
He doesn’t seem the nervous type, Robert Pattinson. He always looks so calm, in the face of all those screaming girls. But there are times when he gets very anxious indeed, and the heart quickens and the behaviour changes. And when he does, he lies, he just makes stuff up. Or at least that’s what he told US late-night chat-show host Jimmy Kimmel recently, when he was a guest on the show to promote his latest movie, The Rover.
