We have to say, Kristen Stewart looks pretty comfy in her latest behind-the-scenes video for Balenciaga’s Rosabotanica fragrance.
Even though she’s wearing nothing but a vine of flowers and an intense gaze, K.Stew looks cool and natural in her flowerchild state. In the video, the actress explains why she felt so completely in her element during the sexy, bare-it-all shoot.
“What I like about this is that I didn’t have to turn into a different person,” she says. “The point was to capture something natural. If you ever feel like you’re forcing something or trying to get the shot suddenly it’s just not fun anymore.”
The video shows the painstaking process of gluing on the intricate 3D floral body art onto her. We don’t know that we would have the same patience as K.Stew!
The Twilight star explains to the camera, “The vines look like they’re growing into her and becoming a part of her. She’s clearly very comfortable there and owning it.”
We’re loving this more feminine, ethereal side to K.Stew! Sometimes it just takes a Balenciaga campaign to bring out the softer side in someone.
It’s not every day that you visit a movie set to interview its stars and veteran director, only to find a decomposing zombie, still oddly attractive, sitting across from you. Staring at you innocently through dead-white irises while she politely answers your questions, it’s disconcerting to say the least. And that’s exactly what happened when I met Ashley Greene on the Los Angeles set of her rollicking new “Zom-Com,” Burying the Ex, along with her very alive-looking co-star Anton Yelchin and Gremlins director Joe Dante.
And that’s also the reason why, in my video interviews above, there is no footage of Ashley from that particular December day on the set; the producers wanted to keep her horrifying look under wraps until the film is ready for release later this year.
Every Monday until the 2014 Sundance Film Festival, EW is celebrating a great success story from independent film’s most prestigious showcase. So far, we’ve revisited Lee Daniel’s Precious and Courtney Hunt’s Frozen River. Today, we look back at Adventureland, the 2009 comedy that featured a bunch of indie stars who were on the cusp of movie stardom.
To be fair, Kristen Stewart had just become a huge star when Adventureland pulled into Park City in 2009 — the first Twilight was playing in theaters — but she was still only 18 years old. Jesse Eisenberg was known best for indies like The Squid and the Whale and Rodger Dodger, while Ryan Reynolds’ name — after a decade of solid work — was just beginning to be in the mix for major studio blockbusters.
Together, they signed up with writer/director Greg Mottola, who was coming off the box-office success of Superbad, for this coming-of-age story about a recent college grad who reluctantly takes a summer job in 1987 at the local amusement park. Running the theme park is an odd couple played by Kristen Wiig and Bill Hader, and the EW video interview below from 2009 is a fine time capsule for the actors, whose careers have all skyrocketed in the past four years.
You already know Kellan Lutz is way more than just a fine piece of meat. But there are a lot of things you probably don’t know… Boxers or briefs? Miley vs. Selena? Check it out.
In the upcoming The Legend of Hercules, Kellan Lutz’s Hercules is the son of Zeus, which means he’s an incredibly strong and a respected fighter. However, it doesn’t mean he gets to be with the woman he loves.
In the film’s newest trailer, all Hercules wants to do is be with his one true love, but it seems she’s supposed to marry his brother. So instead, a shirtless Hercules is left to fight, mud wrestle, and fight some more. The trailer states: “Before he was a legend, he was an ordinary man.” Well, if an ordinary man with extraordinary abs is trying to escape an arranged marriage.
Watch the trailer below:
The Legend of Hercules hits theaters January 10.
If you’re wondering what Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson’s baby would look like, you probably will never know (because they broke up, though sources say they are now “cordial”).
But if it looked anything like the Renesmee doll (nicknamed “Chuckesmee”) that was eventually cut from Breaking Dawn (the filmmakers opted to use CGI), it’s probably for the best. Because this doll is horrifying.
In a new behind-the-scene featurette from Twilight Forever: The Complete Saga (a 12-disc DVD collectors set out today) producer Wyck Godfrey calls Chuckesmee “one of the most grotesque animatronic babies ever to not be seen on film.”
“I understand the theory behind it, to have this creature that does all the hand movements and stuff,” Nikki Reed recalls. “I’m holding a 60-pound mechanical doll and me and the doll have to move our bodies at the same time. It’s really difficult for me.”
Prepare yourselves, Twihards. Your DVD collection is about to experience a Cullen invasion (the best kind of invasion!).
Tuesday marks the release of Twilight Forever: The Complete Saga on DVD and Blu-ray. Other than a high-definition look at Edward’s sparkling skin, this DVD set also comes with some special behind-the-scenes clips. For instance, did you know that Kristen Stewart got her rear end ‘molded’ in order to create a device that would help Taylor Lautner carry her around for long periods of time (think Jacob and Bella’s walk through the woods in Eclipse)? Well, thanks to an exclusive behind-the-scenes look, we have proof.
Turns out, Lautner carrying Stewart while reciting three pages worth of dialogue wasn’t as easy as it looked, especially after the third or fourth take. “I literally went and got my rear end molded to make this day easier on Taylor,” Stewart says. Check out the video below:
For New York fans, Twilight‘s fifth anniversary and DVD release is being celebrated at The Twilight Forever Fan Experience Monday night at 6 p.m. at the Planet Hollywood in Times Square, where stars Peter Facinelli, Nikki Reed, and Jackson Rathbone will be in attendance.
The 28 years-old Twilight heartthrob Kellan Lutz, who is currently in Bulgaria for filming the multimillion dollar action saga titled “Hercules”, has released an exclusive video in support of a local NGO that is taking care of Bulgaria’s many stray dogs.
“After seeing the many stray dogs in Bulgaria, myself & the cast of “Hercules” couldn’t stand by and not do something to help “Animal Rescue Sofia”, the star says in a post on his official Facebook page.
The majority of the dogs in the Bogrov shelter ”have not fallen from the sky” but are abandoned household pets, the actor notes in the video.
The star and his crew decided to volunteer for the organization and to help the NGO in raising EUR 210,000 by the end of 2013 in order to help it in acquiring a new facility, after losing their current building.
Katy Perry is great in concert, but have you seen her karaoke with Robert Pattinson?
Well, now’s your chance!
In a video which recently popped up online today, the “Roar” singer and close pal R.Pattz offer up a lively duet of Boyz II Men’s “I’ll Make Love to you,” and one almost certainly aided by whatever it is they’re sipping on.
The clip, which was filmed at the Burbank, Calif. karaoke club Dimples a few years ago, finds Perry at one point sitting in the Twilight hunk’s lap as they give it their best R&B spin. But not to worry, John Mayer, she and Pattinson have never been romantic.
Just in time for the holidays, the ultimate Twilight movie gift pack has arrived and we’ve got a sneak peek of the DVD/Blu-ray box set featuring all of the films of the saga and more than two hours of never-before-seen bonus footage and features!
To celebrate the 5th anniversary of the theatrical debut of the first Twilight film, Summit Entertainment will release Twilight Forever: The Complete Saga, which in addition to the bonus features also includes 10 hours of all the Twilight features ever created.
The set also includes a commemorative photo album, extended scenes and music videos, a 6-part documentary and previously unreleased behind-the-scenes moments with the cast — including some hilarious bloopers involving Twilight mega-stars Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart.
Watch the video for a sneak peek of Twilight Forever: The Complete Saga box set, which becomes available on Blu-ray and DVD on November 5.
