Robert's Talking 'bout Love

Oh. swoon. Robert Pattinson talks L.O.V.E. and his ideal girl in this telling interview with Glamour Spain... take notes, girls. You can check out the entire thing at Twilight Poison!

Does Twilight remind you of your real life and high school, when two people are attracted to each other with such energy?Yes, although I had really bad luck with girls, the ones I liked hated me and the ones that liked me were not my type. But that’s something that I still go through, I like girls that I shouldn’t like. But I’m learning and now I take my time before I let the girl know.

Do you believe in obsessive love?
Yes, but only from a girl’s point of view. I don’t think men are like that. Not many men read Stephenie Meyer books anyway.

You’re right. That’s what I was going to ask you. Do you believe this story was tailor made for young girls?
Yes, it’s so weird and funny. After reading the books I’ve been asking myself why do women act like that, why do they behave like that, especially younger girls. They turn into freaks when it comes to boys. I like normal girls who don’t pretend to be anything else.

How are you handling being the new It Boy, being in so many covers of magazines now all over the world?
I don’t mind, my character is so good and he deserves to be admired. From the moment I signed up for this I knew what I was getting myself into. Edward is a vampire, he’s not a hero like Superman, he’s a vampire in love who wants to be normal.

It took him 90 years for him to find love. Do you believe in love at first sight?
That’s so boring! I think we all have the right to fall in love several times. The conventional idea of love, the idea of being with somebody for the rest of your life and love her forever sounds so silly to me, and so unrealistic. I think you can love ten people at the same time (laughs).

What are your biggest passions? I'm boring. I like reading, watching movies, and playing the piano.

What would you be capable of doing for love?
I don’t know, climb a mountain?

Do you get hit on by difficult women?
I’m crazy about independent women who don’t require too much attention.

How did you feel at 17?
I felt increadibly awkward all the time. I’ve always been a very edgy person, especially in those years that I didn’t find my place, everything scared me. I just started reading again my journals from when I was 17….

Do you talk about love in them?
Actually, no. I’ve only been attracted to two women in my whole life.

Do you remember the first time you loved someone?
Yes. It’s weird to enjoy your first love, especially if the relationship lasts a long time. Our relationship was really beautiful, but we didn’t have an obsessive love like in the movie. Her presence in my life made me very happy for three years. Now it’s kind of hard to talk about it.

Tell me about that hair…
I always have weird hair: Harry Potter, this one and Dali.

who said messy hair isnt sexy? :) by orsi:).

Kristen Vid: New Moon is Tragic

More thoughts from Kristen Stewart on "New Moon." I really just want to see how many interviewers talking "Twilight" it takes to make her head spin...

La Push, baby. La Push.

I know I'm a day late and a dollar short with these La Push filming images from Lainey... life.happened.today. It's refreshing to see KStew smile! ;)

The hair... YIKES!

Alex Meraz: An Intimate Portrait

Celebuzz breaks down seven things you should know about New Moon hottie Alex Meraz, as told by his friend, actor Raoul Trujillo:

HE'S, UM, PRETTY HOT (OKAY, THAT WAS OUR POINT): "The camera loves him," agrees Trujillo. "Everywhere we go people are always saying, 'Good God, who is your friend.'"

HE'S GONE FROM 'NEW WORLD' TO 'NEW MOON': Meraz's first big film was New World as one of the Powhatan core warriors. "That's kind of where he got the bug," says fellow New World cast member Trujillo. "It was an incredible experience."

HE'S A SERIOUS DANCER: Besides break-dancing in Phoenix, AZ, he excels in indigenous and contemporary dancing. Meraz is "an inherent dancer" says Trujillo. who is also a choreographer.

HE CAN KICK SERIOUS VAMPIRE BUTT: Alex has studied mixed martial arts, winning numerous tournaments in karate and the martial art of Capoeira. "He's a pretty lethal martial artist," says Trujillo. "He can kick some serious ass." *Note: Maybe we can see a little fighting action between Alex and Taylor. Now THAT would be some eye-candy!*

THE DUDE WORKS HARD: Nabbing the key role in Twilight was no fluke for the young actor. "If there's anyone I have known in my life that deserves this, it's Alex," says Trujillo. "He's worked his ass off in the time I have known him. He never lets up."

"He's humble," says Trujillo. "And he always showed that he was willing to listen and learn."

"New Moon happened to be there at the right time," says Trujillo. "This is his first big break. And what a break to have. This whole thing is a phenomena."

SORRY LADIES, HE'S MARRIED: Alex is madly in love with his Vietnamese-American wife Kim. They have a child named Somak (Trujillo is the god-parent). Kim was the one who was a true Twilight fan.

"His wife is the one who has read all of those books. And she's the one who said look, you have to got to get into this. This is perfect for you. You're the one."

: "I sometimes have to tell him, 'I hate you, put your shirt on,' " says Trujillo.

"He's slender anyways and he has a body that just is that way. He doesn't even really work out because if he works out he gets huge. He's got these shoulders on him. It's from the martial arts and the break dancing. And he's one of those genetically gifted guy."

"They are going to have to get a trainer for everyone else on set or he is going to stand out like a sore thumb."

Fan-made New Moon Posters

Since the *official* New Moon poster is so boring, enjoy these fan-made posters from Cinemink, courtesy of NMM:

"Twilight" Rocks the Home DVD World for 2009... is anyone surprised?

"Twilight" has skyrocketed to the year's biggest home-video release of 2009, says Reuters. In its first 8 days, Twilight sold 5.6 million copies, trumping "Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa's" 5.3 million copies sold since its release on February 6.

"Twilight" sold 3 million units its first day in stores, according to distributor Summit Entertainment, enough to send it to the top of the Nielsen VideoScan First Alert sales chart for the week ended March 22.

Just 3 percent of the film's total unit sales came from Blu-ray Disc, not surprising given the "Twilight's" Blu-ray Disc edition is being sold only at Target Stores and Best Buy until May 5.

Twi-Stars in Vancouver

Despite Lainey's Gossip tartness, she always comes through with fantasmic pics. Sounds like Vancouver is the happening place these days; Rob attended the Juno after-party there. Here are a few of the gang over the weekend:

Moving on from Heidi, finally... Caius has been cast!

BBC News reveals that 20 year old newcomer, Jamie Campbell-Bower has been cast as Volturi leader, Caius, in The Twilight Saga: New Moon, and he's heading over to begin filming in June.


Jamie also mentions that he knows the casting of the other characters, but is not at liberty to reveal the names, though he does mention that names revolving around fan sites are FALSE.

"I do know who else will be in it - but I can't tell you, unfortunately. "But go online and have a look at the rumours," he said, then added: "They're all false. You're putting me in a terrible situation."

The role of Caius is key to the plot of New Moon. He forms part of the triumvirate leading the Italian based coven of vampires called the Volturi.

Campbell-Bower confessed he was not previously aware of the character: "I hadn't read the books before. But it's a great thing to be a part of, and it did very well last year."

Thanks, TwiCrack!

My Banner Designer ROCKS.

If you've been to my humble blog before, you've probably noticed the transformation of banners I've gone through.

Thanks to the incredibly talented, super secret graphics person I found over at Vesperarium, I now have the perfect, yummy banners to don my site. If you scroll to the bottom of the page, you'll see the other banner. I just happen to prefer seeing Robward stare at me with those bedroom eyes! ;)

Just for Twilight.Julia.

Here you go, my Romanian friend, and any other foreign friends following along:

Extended Scenes

And I've posted this before, but if you haven't seen it yet, or don't have the Target version, this is a MUST SEE. *Warning: hyperventilating may occur.*

Vampire Kiss Montage

Canadian songstress soothes Rob's rattled nerves.

Canadian singer Adeline blogged about her encounter with Rob this weekend. As his advocate, I'm so glad she had this conversation with him:

Last night I was at a Juno Afterparty at Richards on Richards (a fantastic live music venue in Vancouver). I'm hanging out upstairs and I look over...it's Robert Pattinson. I couldn't believe it! I spent the next few minutes trying to figure out how to say hi and what I could say that wouldn't sound crazy.

I walked over and he was saying to another girl, "I can't do that. I can't do that", so I pulled up beside him and said, "What can't you do Robert" and he said, "I can't take pictures tonight". So I leaned over and said, "I don't need a picture of you. You're just a normal person trying to have a good time. I'm just happy to have this moment with you. Sometimes people want a piece of you, more specifically, a piece of Edward. I'm happy to be meeting you. At the end of the day, you're just like me."

At that point, he pulled me into an warm embrace and said in my ear, "You are the first person to say that to me all day, thank you. Honestly, thank you". I said, "You're welcome. We're the same".

I told him about how I was a performer, so you never know, maybe he'll be at a show someday!

In the end it was lovely to meet the man who so well depicted the character so many people love. I can tell you two things:
1) Even though Robert is not Edward, he has the same intense stare in real life. It took me off guard.
2) He smells lovely. The stinky thing is a bunch of tabloid garbage.

Thanks to Cullen Boys Anonymous for the tip!

These Roblicious visions are dancing in my head.

Since the official New Moon Movie poster does absolutely nothing stimulating, enjoy, instead, these visions of Rob at a Hot Topic in Dallas last November. Pure, charming loveliness, courtesy of Robsessed:

Drumroll...First Official New Moon Movie Poster Revealed! *cue crickets chirping*

YAAAAWWWWNNN... Better than nothing I guess:


Thanks, NMM!

Cullenist Religion: Taking Twilight to the Dark Side... literally.

NOTE: With all the hype on the net about this topic today, I've updated this post- see Cullenism: Update.

I'm as big a Cullen Lover/Twilighter as the next guy, but this goes overboard into a realm that would make Mormon mom Stephenie Meyer cringe:

From the Twilight Academy:

Just like any other religion, we have beliefs and values. Each belief may take on more importance for one person than it may for another, there is no wrong way to decide which beliefs are more important than others. So here are the main Cullenism beliefs, however, this list is not a limit to what you can believe in when it comes to the Cullenism religion, Cullenists are a welcoming and caring group of people, and we will accept any other Cullenism beliefs you may have!

These are our beliefs (in no certain order).

As a Cullenist we believe:
* Edward and the rest of the Twilight characters are real
* Stephenie Meyer is the (or one of the) best author(s)
* The twilight series should be worshiped
* If you are good in life, you will be bless with eternity with the Cullens, if you are bad in life, you will be sent to James' cave

Keep scrolling down the thread to find other rules:
*Cullenists must visit Forks, Washington (where the series takes place) once in your lifetime; the new Cullenists all rabidly support that proposal.
*Twilight should be treated like the Bible, reading a little each night.

When believers are criticized by a poster for creating a fiction-based religion, the critic is threated to be banned by the moderator.

Note: Please, please tell me this is all a bad joke.
