Kellan Lutz gives a special message to Seventeen readers!
Twilight alum Ashley Greene is exploring a different side of nightlife in the latest CBGB poster.
In the newest poster, exclusive to The Hollywood Reporter, Greene portrays Lisa Kristal, daughter of the famed punk club’s owner Hilly Kristal (played by Alan Rickman) in the film).
Her father started CBGB in the 1970s, and the club would help launch the careers of Patti Smith, Blondie, Talking Heads and the Ramones, among others. CBGB examine’s New York’s punk seen through the lens of the club.
Randall Miller directed the film and co-wrote the script with Jody Savin. Miller and Savin’s Unclaimed Freight Productions is producing, along with former senior vp of Warner/Chappell Music Brad Rosenberger and this poster’s namesake, now known as Lisa Kristal Burgman.
This is the first of five exclusive CBGB posters that THR will unveil this week. Earlier this month, THR debuted CBGB posters honoring Joey Ramone, Debbie Harry, Smith and Stiv Bators.
EXCLUSIVE: Gemma Arterton and Anna Kendrick have been set to star alongside Ryan Reynolds in The Voices, the Marjane Satrapi-directed psychological thriller that is being co-produced by 1984 Private Defense Contractors and Mandalay Vision. Filming is about to start in Berlin, with script by Paranormal Activity‘s Michael R. Perry. Reynolds plays a lovable but strange bathtub factory worker who yearns for the attention of a woman in accounting. When their relationship takes a sudden murderous turn, Jerry’s evil “talking” cat and benevolent “talking” dog lead him down a fantastical path that ultimately brings him to salvation.
Arterton just wrapped Runner, Runner opposite Ben Affleck and Justin Timberlake, and was last seen in Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters. Kendrick is coming off the sleeper hit Pitch Perfect. Both are repped by CAA.
1984 Private Defense Contractors’ Adi Shankar and Spencer Silna are producing with Mandalay Vision’s Matthew Rhodes, and Roy Lee. Mandalay’s Adam Stone will have a producing credit and Cathy Schulman is exec producing.
Anna Kendrick is a newly-minted blonde bombshell. The 27-year-old Pitch Perfect actress recently dyed her hair blonde, but admits she’s still adjusting to her shocking transformation.
“Had to dye my hair for a film. Keep getting spooked when I pass reflective surfaces,” the former brunette joked on Twitter Tuesday, April 9. “Now I know how puppies feel.”
On April 11, she shared a black and white picture on Instagram of her long blonde hair concealing her face. She joked, “Debuting my new hair color in B&W in case any of my followers are colorblind. Or dogs.”
But the Oscar-nominated actress doesn’t plan to stay a blonde for long. She added, “So strange. Just until we wrap.”
Unfortunately, Kendrick’s new blonde ‘do may not be making its red carpet debut Sunday at the 2013 MTV Movie Awards. Though the cast of Pitch Perfect is set to join former costar and host of the show Rebel Wilson in a special opening act number, Kendrick may not be joining them.
A rep for the actress told the Huffington Post that Kendrick will not be attending because she’s filming The Last Five Years in NYC.
Taylor Lautner might have won the Best Shirtless Performance award at the 2013 MTV Movie Awards, but it wasn’t his rockin’ body that he was showing off on the awards show stage. Instead Lautner came up to accept his Golden Popcorn sporting a (fake) beer gut and slurping from a massive soda while admitting that his life has changed significantly since he turned 21.
“I’m just going to be real honest with you guys, I turned 21 recently I’ve been drinking a little bit, eating a little bit — a little too much drinking probably,” he said during his acceptance speech. When a photo of him in all his shirtless glory appeared behind him, Lautner added, “That picture was actually taken a few years ago. Those were the good old days. You could actually bounce a quarter off those things.”
He continued, “But in all seriousness, for us shirtless actors out there this is like winning an Oscar. … This is as high as it gets. This is the shirtless Oscar for all of us who have to take our shirts off — McConaughey, Tatum, Lena Dunham — this is it.”
This was the only award that “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 2″ was nominated for and won at the 2013 MTV Movie Awards.
What do you get for the girl that has everything? “Twilight” star Robert Pattinson certainly knows the answer. After he and girlfriend Kristen Stewart celebrated her birthday on April 9, the actor reportedly gave his lady love the perfect gift.
Kristen, an avid pen collector, was given a limited edition Bentley fountain pen, according to the Sun. The very rare ink pen set Pattinson back a reported $40,000. A source says, “Kristen has always collected pens, and has a variety of stylish ones. Rob decided to go big for her birthday this year and brought her a limited edition white gold Tibaldi Bentley Crewe fountain pen.”
He even had the pen, of which there are only 40 on the planet, engraved with her name, the year and the message “From R.” The source says the pen features “a two-tone 18-carat yellow gold nib covered in rhodium and ruthenium,” with the barrel that is identical to the dashboard in the earliest model of Bentley automobiles.
In addition to the pen, Pattinson is said to have also given Stewart an antique bracelet, along with an invitation to move back in with him. Though back together, the couple has lived apart since it was revealed that Stewart had an affair with her “Snow White and the Huntsmen” director, Rupert Sanders.
And another celebrity gets the chop! Nikki Reed debuted her stylish new lob (long bob) Wednesday night, April 10, at the 3rd Annual Coach Evening to Benefit Children’s Defense Fund at Bad Robot in Hollywood.
The previously long-tressed Twilight actress spoke to Us Weekly about her decision to cut off “at least a foot,” she estimates, of her hair. “I’m doing a new movie, and although the role doesn’t require a short hair change, it’s something totally different than anything else I’ve done and I wanted to look and feel like a different person,” she tells Us.
The 24-year-old star normally entrusts her haircuts and color to her mom, a hairdresser, but for this makeover, she called in a neutral party, stylist Mara Roszak. “I called Mara and was like, I need to do something really drastic, but I don’t want my mom to cut it because if something goes wrong, I don’t want to hate my mom. She totally got it and I’m so happy.”
Unfortunately, the actress, who’s married to American Idol alum Paul McDonald, wasn’t able to donate her chopped locks. “They wouldn’t let me. My hair is super processed, I guess, from years of being bleached and dyed,” she explains.
Reed isn’t the only star to be enamored with the mid-lenth haircut. In January, the New York Times declared model Karlie Kloss’ chin-length ‘do “the haircut of the year.” Shortly after, Nicole Richie debuted a new choppy lob, and in March Naomi Watts had her hair cut into a classic bob.

Another birthday together! Kristen Stewart turned 23 on Tuesday, April 9 and boyfriend Robert Pattinson was by her side to help her celebrate.
The Twilight costars and real-life couple of over three years were spotted at the Mexican restaurant Malo in L.A.’s Los Feliz neighborhood with a group of nearly 40 friends, including Spring Breakers actress Ashley Benson, X17 reports.
Stewart kept the dress code casual in jeans, a black zip-up hoodie and sneakers. Pattinson, 26, followed her lead by wearing a black jacket, gray hoodie, jeans and sneakers.
The twosome appeared to be in good spirits as they were seen exiting a car together. The birthday girl was also snapped with a big smile on her face while walking arm-in-arm with a female friend.
