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.”
IFC Films has released a new Camp X-Ray trailer online. The film stars Kristen Stewart as a young private stationed at Guantanamo Bay, and revolves around the complex relationship that develops between her and a foreign detainee, played by A Separation star Peyman Maadi. I’m glad to see Stewart using Twilight and Snow White and the Huntsman as a springboard to do a collection of more indie material, which also includes Clouds of Sils Maria and Still Alice. Adam saw Camp X-Ray at Sundance, and while he said it’s a bit of a mixed bag, he praised Stewart’s performance, and I’m interested to see what she did with this material.
Hit the jump to check out the new Camp X-Ray trailer. The film also stars Lane Garrison, John Carrol Lynch, and Cory Michael Smith. Camp X-Ray opens in theaters and VOD on October 17th.
EXCLUSIVE: Joe Dante has jumped into the zombie world with Burying The Ex, the Voltage Pictures’ romantic comedy starring Anton Yelchin and Ashley Greene and world premiering Thursday out of competition the Venice Film Festival. Greene plays an ex-girlfriend who dies in a freak accident but rises from the dead and expects her relationship with her boyfriend (Yelchin) to continue as normal — like if Dante’s Gremlins were clingy significant others. Problem is the boyfriend is ready to move on with True Detective‘s Alexandra Daddario. Check out the clip.
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.”

After being nominated by her friend Anne Hathaway, Kristen Stewart completed the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge with Nicholas Hoult and Scott Fahrendorf on Thursday. The trio made sure to put a personal spin on the task; they literally took the plunge by dunking their heads in buckets of freezing-cold water before pouring them out over themselves. Nicholas and Scott then dumped a larger bucket on Kristen’s head. After gathering her composure, she nominated singer Jenny Lewis and actress Brie Larson, whom she recently starred alongside in the video for Jenny’s song “Just One of the Guys.” At the end of the clip, Kristen tells viewers that their stunt was done with dirty bathwater, adding, “Please be considerate of California water conservation.” Watch Kristen’s Ice Bucket Challenge above, and then be sure to check out all the other celebrities who have taken the challenge as well.
No social media? No problem.
Hollywood hunk Zac Efron got wet yesterday for the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge and in turn nominated his famous pal Robert Pattinson. That obviously got fans excited—because who doesn’t want to see the Twilight star get dumped on?—but many also wondered how we would see R.Pattz’s video. After all, he’s not on Twitter, Instagram or Facebook.
Luckily, Efron helped his buddy out and posted the clip for Pattinson, and what we saw is so hilarious and so adorable, we couldn’t help but fall in love with Edward Cullen, er, Robert Pattinson’s boyish charms all over again.
In the first season of BBC Three’s Cuckoo, a normal family was turned upside down when their daughter came home from a summer abroad having married an unusual man named Cuckoo (played by Andy Samberg). But with season two of the series kicking off with Cuckoo’s death, there was a hippie-sized hole left in the show’s lineup. Luckily, Taylor Lautner was there to fill it.
In the first episode of the second season, which premiered last Thursday, Lautner came on board as Dale Jr., a very hairy young man who left behind his ashram in India to look for his biological father. Twist: His father was Cuckoo, which meant Dale Jr. now found himself among his father’s widow and her family.
But that isn’t the only twist in the episode. Rather, Lautner’s comedic debut quickly became the most talked-about element of the show, both shocking and impressing viewers who perhaps only knew him from his work on the Twilight films. And let’s just say that Dale is a far cry from Jacob Black. Below, watch a clip from Lautner’s debut.
Cuckoo‘s second episode airs on Thursday, Aug. 14 at 10 p.m. (U.K. time) on BBC Three.
IFC Films has released the first Camp X-Ray trailer for writer/director Peter Sattler’s Guantanamo Bay drama. The film stars Kristen Stewart as a young private stationed at the aforementioned prison and revolves around the complex relationship that develops between her and a foreign detainee, played by A Separation star Peyman Maadi. I caught the film at Sundance at found it to be a bit of a mixed bag. It touches on the controversial issues surrounding the treatment of Guantanamo detainees and does a nice job of portraying them as human beings rather than faceless villains, and in particular the scenes between Stewart and Maadi are quite strong and compelling. However, other aspects of the film tend to delve into melodrama territory and certain subplots coming off as superfluous and unfocused. This is Sattler’s first feature and he certainly shows some promise, especially when it comes to intimate character-driven scenes, so I’m definitely eager to see how his career progresses going forward.
