Celebrities and Twilight
I was saying to Moon that I want to have FUN with Twilight again. It feels like it’s been awhile. I was thinking about to what has made Twilight so FUN all along, and while there’s many reasons, one that kept popping into my mind was all the celebrities that kept admitting they were as into the saga as we are! Let’s recap who we’ve heard from over the years:
First up on the RANDOM list, Fall Out Boy’s Pete Wentz, who said: “I went to Chinatown, picked up a bootleg version of Twilight and watched it like, 72, times.” Summit Entertainment thanks you, Pete, for contributing to their bottom line.
“GO GO POWER RANGERS! lol jokes, im a guy and im all 4 team edward =) F*CK U JACOB
Then there’s Kelly Clarkson: “I’m on ‘Breaking Dawn.’ It’s actually interrupting my sleeping pattern. Every girl is, like, obsessed. I went to Cancun, Mexico, for New Year’s with a bunch of friends and we were laughing because, as we were laying out, literally every female at the pool had one of the books from the series.”
Oh- let’s not forget that Malia Obama and her dad, ya know, The President read Twilight. I wonder if Mr. Obama pawned off the Isle Esme scenes to a female cabinet member. “Daddy- why is Edward naked in the water? Won’t he get sand on his butt?”
And ugh- Dakota Fanning got the role because she made it public that she was a Twilight fan. WIN! Oh- AND this happened with Bryce Dallas Howard too! (Though it did NOT work for Vanessa Hudgens & Lindsey Lohan! THANKFULLY)
Must we mention Taylor Swift? We all know what team she is/was on!
Emma Watson CLEARLY needs to be told about LTT because in 2009 she told Elle UK: “I love those books. This is so sad, but I literally felt depressed when I finished reading them because I thought, ‘Oh my God, what am I going to do now?'” COME TO LTT, EMMA!!!
Also pass that message along to Rosario Dawson who realized that Twilight is like a drug to us: “I just read the first book, it’s ridiculous, it’s like crack cocaine. I read it for 10 hours straight until I finished it.”
(Ps: Notice a trend that ANYONE who admits to loving the books discusses how addicting they are & how depressing it is when they are over. And those who just watch the movies might LOVE THEM, yet don’t have the same connection? READ THE BOOKS PEOPLE!)
Jimmy Fallon channels Edward Cullen every chance he can get with “Robert is Bothered” (Did it ever bother anyone that he dresses as Edward yet acts like Robert then realize that you shouldn’t actually let something that was never supposed to be taken seriously bother you? Phew. Glad I’m not alone there) and FANGIRLS over any other Twi cast member
Plus Hayley from Paramore got her MUSIC into the first film AND a sit down with Rob Pattinson because she’s such a big fan. Lucky!!! (Okay, our fangirlyness got us in the presence of THE CREATOR but still… We always want what we don’t have)
OHH wait! Our favorite Twilight-loving “celebrity”: OLIVIA on the Biggest Loser. You remember her- she’s an LTT-turned-real-life friend kicking butt on Season 11 of the Biggest Loser! Have you been watching her on Tuesday Nights? Our friend @lula34 gave us a quick update on her progress on the Biggest Loser: “She’s an award-winning chef (after last night’s BL episode, that is), she has charmed the Moms of America (after last wk’s ep)–not the Oprah-red carpet basement-Twi-moms, of course–& she looks good in purple, black, & blue. Oh, & she changes her nail polish to match her team color.” WE LOVE YOU OLIVIA!!! Win this thing!
I JUST HAD A LOT OF FUN REMINISCING!!!! Okay… well, not as much fun as if NEW celebs admitting that, while they were late to the party, they jumped on the Twilight train!
Let’s have fun together, again!
What celebrities can you remember mentioning Twilight? Who DO we want on our “Team?” Can we get an athlete mention? Maybe that dude who just got kicked out of BYU? He heard about it from some Mormon classmates? Who else!?
