Celebrities and Twilight

Dear 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.

Then we’ve got Jennifer Love Hewitt who fangirls harder than the teenagers that comment on the Twilight Facebook wall (For a laugh- here’s my favorite teenager Facebook comment from today)

“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.”

This spoof is blowing my MIND!!!

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!
Love,
UnintendedChoice

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!?

    : “I love those 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?’”

    I too felt like, Edward is gone now. I felt like Bella in New Moon when I finished the books. My reason for existing was gone. Yes Emma, we understand.

    (please laugh with me that my phone put, “Edward is ginger” instead of “Edward is gone”)

    • Ish

      according to Bree he is ginger xx

    • TeamSeth

      I am laughing! “Still not ginger!”

    It rained here last yesterday, resulting in the parking lot at work being quite slickery (I know that is a made I word, but I like it and out describes it better, slick + slippery). Anyway, when I parked my car, I had this urge to stand at the back side of my car and examine my tires and wait for someone to pull into the lot too quickly, to reenact the Phenomenon chapter from Twilight. But then being crushed when the fictional character, Edward did not show up to save me sounded not so fun.

    What do you mean that’s not normal? hehehe

    • Anonymous

      Slickery is definitely a word, no matter what autocorrect says. (see? it doesn’t even register its own name)

      It is pissing down rain here right now. It makes it slightly better to pretend I am in Forks, and that perhaps Bella’s hair does this crazy flippy thing sometimes when it rains and perhaps Edward thinks its adorable and funny and not just horribly unattractive on me…HER! on her. Yes. Ahem.

          Dateline: ITALY

          A group of deranged women were arrested for inappropriately molesting and attempting to punch the lower portion of Michelangelo’s statue of David. Overheard above the drunken cackling were nonsense words, such as, “I am a slut for your nuts, RPattz!”

          Bail was posted hours later by an anonymous donor, only giving the last name of Meyer. No further details have been obtained.

          I’m going to be in Italy–Firenze, this summer. I will wear my Tweed-Serious hat everywhere.

    • Anonymous

      Normal!

    • TeamSeth

      That’s why I put some new tires on your car. Old ones were getting bald. Because new tires really work so much better on icy roads.

      Just don’t look at them too fondly.

    • P.S.

      When I was leaving work today, I had the urge to tell my co-worker “done for the day”. She did look at me a little funny.

  • Ish

    Totally off topic but just been waiting to share this with someone who understands… I had my first EVER robbity bob dream last night – albeit he was missing presumed dead and i kept diving down deep deep into the ocean to try to find him – have been watching too much cnn japan tsunami, but I met his ma and whole fandangle and we were so thankful that he had gone missing after finishing breaking dawn. Weird or what! Has anyone else dreamt of the man or the series would interest me xx

    • Anonymous

      Robdreams are always a hot (and depressing for those who don’t dream) topic on LTR. My latest Robdream: Rob and I were eating guacamole on some ship. It was short but sweet!

      Congrats on the Robdream Ish! I’m sure next time Rob will make an actual appearance for you!

      • Ish

        yeah but that is the weirdest thing he was in the dream but missing! So I was talking to him about being missing? thats normal right…. oh why why did my alarm not fail this morning?

        • Anonymous

          That is weird but sooo DreamNormal! Love it!!

    • Anonymous

      Thanks for sharing your Rob dream with the less fortunate (those of us who are Rob-dreamed deprived, that is). I’m sure Summit would be very relieved that he went missing AFTER filming BD – it would have been a mess for them otherwise. Maybe they’d have to hire that fake Rob guy who wears a diaper (I’m not making this up – you can Google it). And viewers would just have to wonder why Edward showed up for the epic non-battle battle wearing only Huggies.

    • TeamSeth

      Sigh. I just had a tsunami dream period. And it was fresh, warm water…like a Florida lake. And I was more worried about the bacteria getting into my ears than drowning. It was super scary though. Sigh. Why didn’t Steve Jones show up on his yacht! Unfair.

    • Anonymous

      Unfortunately no Edward dream yet. But I did see a guy at work yesterday with dark hair, pale skin and blue eyes that really popped. The colors were a real contrast. He was older, not hot, but in his younger days I am sure he turned a few heads.

  • Anonymous

    You know, I’ve always hated when they ask celebs What Team they are on. But really that’s how we know that some of these people are actual Twi fans, so I guess it’s okay. I just wish they would stop asking that of Rob’s new costars. They are working on totally different movies!!

    • Anonymous

      yeah, it must be embarrassing to have reporters ask Reese Witherspoon if she is Team Edward. He’s pretty…ahem, I mean talented enough to be an actor in his own right.

      Also, Ish, it is sort of hilarious that you were all, “oh noes tragedy…oh wait he’s finished filming the Twi movies? well, that’s lucky then!” hahaha.

      • Ish

        I know and the funniest thing is that I was finally getting over my crush only to be back on you tube today watching all things Rob. Oh dear actually considering purchasing bad mother’s handbook.

    iam so obsessed with twilight it’s serously not funny! :D I dream about them.. Think about jacob, and fantasise that I’ll be a vampire too because hell if their real!!!… BITE ME!! Lol I was so depressed when I read the last words from breaking dawn “forever and ever and ever” WTH!!.. So I lost it and kept saying this isn’t over we need more! So for my senior prodject I become to write a story called “overcast”. Though I won’t give info on my story being stolen..and right now it was hard enough to give away my title! :( but let me say.. Trying to publish a book is expensive.. Trying to find stephanie myer to read the damn book is hard!!! Though I will not give up trying to publish it.. My heart n soul went into this story..and many of my friends are trying to get me to post it online!! The internet is scary and I’m afraid someone will steal it! But all in all.. Those heart broken twilight fans who crave more.. Iam with ya! And I’m hoping to get that book published soon!! ~love, Amie Figueroa

    • Tinkerbellbabii5

      sorry iam typing on my phone, some words are missed spelled! (wahh) :(

    • Bubs

      Good luck with having it published !!!! Hope we get to read it some day. Waiting for SM to keep writing ANYTHING new, Twi related, is soooo frustrating. Personally I’m hoping she’ll keep going with Jacob and “Renameme”‘s story. Summitt should be pushing that one !!! Then again I’m soooo Team Jacob-that poor boy deserves a happy “forever and ever and ever” too !

      • Tinkerbellbabii5

        oh in my story jaboc n renesseme go on.. :) and I make rosalie have a story too!! Don’t worry I got my twilighters covered hehe.. Just gotta find SM!! Ugh

        • Tinkerbellbabii5

          sorry my phone.. Jacob*

    Go Olivia!!! I’ve been watching every week and when my friends ask why I say “a friend of a friend is on it” because really, how else can i explain how I “know” her??

    • P.S.

      Yay! Go Olivia! I’ve been watching every week too! I told my kids that I sort of know her, and they were just like wow, really? No questions asked.

    It is funny to think about celebrities watching old Twilight cast interviews on YouTube for kicks.

  • Jazzled

    The books really do have *some* sort of addictive quality to them…I moved recently, and can only find New Moon and Breaking Dawn. No idea where Twilight and Eclipse are, and it’s freaking me out majorly. The sad thing is I won’t rest until I find them even though I have no plans to read them again anytime soon, being how I know that they’re actually horrible literature…but I also know that if I pick them up, I’m a goner. All over again. Damn Twi-crack.

    • Anonymous

      Do you have a husband? Maybe he hid them on you. I could TOTALLY see Mr TJE playing a prank on me saying that they got “lost” in the move.

      Horrible literature? No. Technically stellar literature? No. Completely and grossly entertaining and spellbounding? YES.

      and I know how you feel about needing to know where your books are even with not having any intention of reading them again any time soon.

      It’s weird. The books calm me. …Thought. I heard that there has been a proven study that men seeing boobs at least 10 min a day, every day, lowers their blood pressure. Maybe Twilight is for women what boobs are for men… ;)

      • Anonymous

        Hmm, wondering if there is a point where boob size increase is related to blood pressure increase. Like if boobs are below a 40DD, blood pressure decreases, but over 42F, it increases? I’m sure they did not account for that variable, as variables are rarely accounted for in scientific studies about men and boobies.

        But I like the idea of Twilight as a prescription for high blood pressure. I think my boss needs a serious dose of S. Meyer.

    • Bubs

      “Horrible literature”[????] Nooooo!!!! I could start with engrossing, enthralling, enveloping etc. that’s why it’s “Damn Twi-crack”, as you correctly put it :-]. It’s not just the story, it’s how it’s WRITTEN. Do yourself a favour and buy new copies, it’ll add to the over 100 million copies already sold and you don’t sell these numbers if you’re not a great writer. I’ll get off my soapbox now…..

    I’m really hoping doing Cosmopolis makes Paul Giamatti a Twi-hard. Way more delightfully random than even Pete Wentz.

    • Anonymous

      haha, that would be Epic. I think Paul Giamatti would be a good “squee-er”.

      Watched Cronenberg’s Naked Lunch last week. If you haven’t seen it, there’s this talking roach that’s…squicky. And Cronenberg is just a very, err, visceral moviemaker. Very fleshy and squicky. And, no spoilers, but Cosmopolis has our boy getting a proctology exam in a limo. Oh and also he’s seducing a female employee at the same time. And it’s hot, even in the book. (I know, I know. Just trust me on this.) It’s a disturbingly weird and awesome book.

      • Anonymous

        I just have to say, Twilight the so-so book spawned Twilight the movie that spawned my Robsession, which then spawned my reading of all kinds of books I never would have otherwise, just because he is associated in some way (Bel Ami) and Cosmopolis. (an interesting book, and our Rob is perfect for the part).
        All to say, thank you, Stephenie for broadening my literary horizons!

    Also Martha Stewart. I’ve read a few quotes from her about being a fan, and having a Robsession.

    • Anonymous

      Robsession…. it’s an actual diagnosis now.

      • JustGoWithIt

        I haven’t seen the documentary, or whatever it is, but yes, it seems it is. It would have been funny if it had made it into one of those new words of the year things. I’m not sure how accurately quoted the snips I’ve read are, they were good. When asked about Twilight, she said something like “I’m a fan. I’m pretty sure it has something to do with Robert Pattinson”, and apparently wanted to chat about Rob to Kristen when they talked, and told Kristen that she had a dream about Rob….me too, me too Martha.

      • Anonymous

        Only there’s no treatment, just support groups. I’m fairly certain it is terminal. I’ve heard some people “get over it” but then those same people always end up going back to LTR and/or Robsessed “just to check in” – YAH RIGHT.

        My only hope is that one day (at least 10 years from now, please) menopausal hormones kick in and I no longer find him attractive. But then hearing Martha is all hot for him makes me think even menopause will not “cure” me either.

          It won’t.

    • TeamSeth

      Do you think she’s going to release a Robsession line for WalMart?

      • JustGoWithIt

        That would be a wickedly good gag gift that the person receiving secretly actually loves.

        • Anonymous

          What might be in the Robsessed line? Cosmopolis water bottles? Memory upgrades for your computer, to store the 5,765 Robporn photos? A nanny to look after your kids so you can read LTR when you get home? Blow-up Rob Dolls (with optional blow up water bottles)? Photoshopping Rob for Dummies (sold as a set with Creating YouTube Videos of Rob Set to Porn Music for Dummies)?

          • JustGoWithIt

            Forget blow up Robs, think The Rob Real Doll, which comes in Special Edition Edward.

          • Anonymous

            You know someone out there, someone with a lot of money, has a Real Rob Doll. After a long day, what could be nicer than throwing the Rob Real doll into a bath of hot water and cozying up to his silicone stuffed PVC form? I’m sure Real Rob will just hold you close, not try to get all pervy as you are trying to relax. Real Rob doll also is a perfect dinner companion, since he just lovingly stares at you and doesn’t hog all the wine in the bottle.

            But wait…there’s more…Real Rob makes for a perfect driving companion…he can get you into the car pool lane PLUS you’ll be the envy of all other females on the road!

          • JustGoWithIt

            Thank you for going there. I kind of want one now.

  • ChillinWithCullens

    Pete Wentz is a twi-hard? that IS random! And poor Swifty, she’s probably the most brokenhearted of all us fledging Team Jacob members. Also, laughed my head off at the teen’s fb comment! Ha!

  • Stacey

    I just realized that around this tine last year was when I first found Twilight , LTT and and all of you. Which makes me realized I have learned so much from UC and Moon (actually all of you) that I really should be embarrassed about like Taylor and his dad but feel really normal about. Thanks everybody!

    My favorite celebrity that mentions Twilight or is asked about Twilight is Ian Somerhalder. (I know not surprising) He gets so annoyed and then gets all cranky about it. Then makes fun of it. He gets so jealous. It’s cute. Plus, it’s a nice break from his endless talk of recycling, saving dolphins and Deepak Chokra. And the pictures of his cat. Which is admirable and all, but just tiring. That’s why I like PFach’s RV tweets.

    • http://letterstotwilight.com UnintendedChoice

      HAPPY ONE YEAR!!!!!!!!!!!

    • TeamSeth

      I always thought the pics were of the cats he was helping getting adopted out. You’d think it’d be an immediate sell! “Hey, it’s Ian here. I’ll be at Petsmart on 1207 Peachtree Rd from 10-12 today. Come adopt a cat from me!” And by 11 all the cats are adopted. (I made the address up.)

      • Anonymous

        It could happen. Allison Sweeney (from BL) was at my dad’s PetSmart promoting some Dog diet food. No joke, my dad got a signed book from her. Too bad it was The Mommy Diet! lol

  • TeamSeth

    Oh, I hope Emma does come hang out on LTT. We’re normal, we promise. Yes, we love HP as well, but no we’re not going to fangirl you about that. This is a Twilight site after all, we show respect. PappzFree is the way to be! :) Just ask Sean Penn, bitches!

    • TeamSeth

      Oh man! Have you seen the People mag cover out now? With Charlie Sheen and his two sons? The older son has a SERIOUS KStew bitchface on. Mr. Seth pointed it out to me, and I laughed so hard, then I said, “Mini Sean Penn, bitches.” and Mr. Seth didn’t get it. But I laughed even harder. (esp. since Sean Penn was on Us Weekly or something)

    So what do you think, are there two catagories of fans? Well I am sure there are more than that, but I am talking about the fans who have seen the movies only, and the ones who fell in love with the books and then the movies. I mean even if you don’t like to read, what is your depth as a fan without the books. Listen to them on CD.

    I wasn’t aware of this awesomeness until after New Moon was in theaters. I made myself read the books first because there is so much that is missed in a movie.
