People who tweet Chris Weitz: Your embarassing is showing!


Dear People Who Tweet Chris Weitz dumb crap,

NO ONE CARES. Seriously, no one care what camera angles he used or what movie best displays the use of the wide angle lens, or how foreign film distributors choose what day to release a film vs the US distributors and we especially don’t care for Chris’s take on Rob’s body parts (though they are lovely). You are ALL 2nd hand embarrassing to read and make the rest of us look like losers with hormonal issues who get off on tweeting semi naughty things to a guy who worked with a guy you like. It’s like asking your barista at Starbucks if your crush has ever creamed their coffee… hur hur hur… see what I did there? Yea, it was gross and that’s how some of you make us all look!

Srsly! How cute is this kid??

Don’t get me wrong, it’s BEYOND awesome that Chris tweets regularly and responds to his followers at all! It’s super cool and we love it and whatever but all I’m saying it stop with the facade of really caring about camera lenses, we know you just want to ask about Robsten. So check yo’self before you wreck yo’self. Annndddd if you feel the need to tweet him here’s a list of approved topics I’ve come up with:

Things we care about Chris Weitz tweeting about:

  • Taylor Lautner bits
  • Jokes about his mustard pants
  • Cute stuff about his freaking adorable son
  • Things tweeted in spanish (caliente!)
  • Restaurant recommendations
  • Twitpics of him at the pool
  • What he’s listening to
  • Stuff about his movies he’s working on
  • Twitpics of the mustard pants
  • Twitpics of his freaking adorable son with the mustard pants near Chris in a pool
  • Secret meet up locations
  • Whether Big Daddy was a diva on the New Moon set like he ALLEGEDLY is now
  • The juxtaposition between his jewish last name and christian first name (srsly, I wonder these things)
  • Why he’s so awesome
  • Whether him, Cathi Hardi, David Slade and Bill Condon meet up regularly at Cathi’s favorite Friday’s for drinks and reminisce about the old days, share war stories and who has the best black mail tape of Robsten
    .

Every day he's tweetin'!

Tonight (last night as it were) I will be at the LA Film Fest seeing Mamitas while Chris is in a nearby theater presenting the World Premiere (oh la la!) of A Better Life… I will be enjoying Mamitas but I will be secretly longing to see your new film FIRST… and hoping that my pal who IS seeing A Better Life will get us all the TLaut and KStew gossip as they will ALLEGEDY, MAYBE be there to represent and support you. HOW great is that?! All these people love Chris! Anyway, I’m hoping Taylor brings Big Daddy and I can see the Diva from afar.

Instead of tweeting why don’t we all go see A Better Life?

Themoonisdown

Is it crazy we’re still burning a candle for this guy? NO!!! :) Also who wants to see A Better Life? Anyone been hitting up the awesome LA Film Fest over the past week?? No Eclipse this year but there are tons of amazing films, if you’re in LA go go go! Vamos!

Our internet game is ridiculous: LTR, The Forum, Twitter, The Store

    Obviously it is also appropiate to ask him about loquat pies.  You’re welcome.

    • TeamSeth

      “You’re welcome”

      So does that mean you asked?  What was the response?

      • superhumanmoron

        But of course!  I asked him if anyone had ever baked him a loquat pie.  He said something like “All the time.  When are people NOT baking me loquat pies?”

          So he IS a slutty DILF!

  • Rob’s slow mo’ strut

    Eek! Guilty! I did tweet him once! *hides face in shame* But I swear it wasn’t about Robsten. I asked him about Edward’s lipstick that STILL bugs me every time I see any of the twilight movies. And from the looks of BD, it seems like it will keep bugging me till BD part 2 ends. In fact, Edward’s lipstick makes me cringe more than any of the stuttering/blinking/cheesy special effects/ cheesy dialogues, especially when I’m watching it with a non-fan.

    But you’re right. His kid is adorable. And so is he.

    • Anonymous

      I think I like the lipstick. Think about how he would look without it. Extra pale makeup with a touch of dark circle under the eye, and no lipstick? He would look more like a zombie than a vampire. I have noticed it, but then right away thought “at least he’s not wearing a wig”.

      • Stacey

        I still think they need to tone it down with the kabuki makeup. Even with the Cullen Family’s Cover Girl Ruby Sunset lipstick, they just look like zombies that enjoy getting fancy with some lip shimmer. It brings out the lovely shade of copper in those creepy contacts. The contacts that make all the vampires randomly squint like they need reading glasses. Or maybe that’s just Edward’s cranky (aka Bella is not listening to me and and trying to kill herself again) face. I get confused sometimes.

        I have a feeling with a less obvious ghostly white and more creative lighting they would still be *snicker* pale perfection and greek god statues *snicker* and might blend in more.

          Those wigs… I know there has to be good wigs around. It’s like they got them at a party store or better yet ordered them out of one of those advertisements that’s with the coupons that you find in the Sunday Newspaper.

          I still have nightmares about the Jasper wig. It follows me around dark hallways and talks in a southern accent.

      Also, did he respond? Did he mention what shade of lipstick Edward wears? Probably not I guess, it is probably one of those blended colors that shifts according to the lighting in the scene, or how fancy his outfit is. Tweed suit = more lipstick.

      • Rob’s slow mo’ strut

        Sadly, no :(( Either he wasn’t a fan of the lipstick either and chose to say nothing about it OR my tweet got lost. I tweeted him during the time he was receiving about 50 tweets every second. 

        • TeamSeth

          I have a theory that they just CGI on the lipstick.

          You know what they SHOULD do… CGI on the wigs.

          • TeamSeth

            Then at least the HUGE WOLVES’ fur would match the human hair in texture and they’d both look either real cuz they’re the same or consistently fake.

  • Stacey

    He still tweets?!? This is what happens when you never, ever go on Twitter anymore…

    Does PFach? Ashley? I do, however, know that Ian Somerhalder is still tweeting about recycling and saving trees. Some things are just forever. The Twilight cast, on the other hand, seem more random. Now when does Cathi get her Twitter up and running? That would be some GREAT drunken tweets! 

    • s.kay

      Peter – not so much lately. Ashley does regularly it seems, but not every day regularly. Kellan is completely random and always about charities still.

      I do cringe to read what some people tweet CW. Still impressed he actually responds to people though! That’s cool.

      You’re still up on me, I haven’t ever been on Twitter. I was proud enough of myself when I’d gotten on Facebook. I haven’t yet braved the Twitter waters. I get my twitter info second-hand from places like LTT and such. Maybe I’ll skip Twitter like I skipped Myspace. I’ll only join in on every other fad… It’s my way of keeping my individualism… Or something.

        Twitter. Hmmm. It’s sort of reminds me of high school. Or at least my high school experience. You try to follow the cool people, but they block you. You slip a note to some guy you have a crush on (a 140 character note that you spent 15 minutes revising/overthinking), but he never responds. Other people notice your crushing tweet failures and try to relate. And then basically you end up hanging out with 3-4 people who laugh at your dumb jokes, and you spend all your time with them and mock everyone else on Twitter. Just like high school.

          Oh my god people block you on twitter? that makes me giggle somehow. Maybe it’s the altitude, but you are pale perfection both here and on Twitter.

          Facebook is more like high school for me, in that I hide from people I knew in high school while I am there.

          • natteringyeahrobber

            I’m guessing they thought I was some spammer. Was probably my super hot profile photo and series of tweets about how to get a director-ready sexy body in 4 hours.

          CDubs ignores me consistently and I have real questions that I don’t ask IN ALL CAPPPPS. He seems to dislike the ALL CAPS, and yet only seems to respond to them. Okay, and when I say consistently I mean 3 times, not including the times I say inappropriate things about him that I just assume he is too famous to read.

          • natteringyeahrobber

            But you assumed the same about Jacksper. And then he sent you a secret coded message (pizza = love you) revealing that he does in fact read all your tweets. He probably even calls CW for a slice of pepperoni when they are both in town and they probably compare MNS tweets (“she likes me more”).

      I only follow CW, PFach, and the ever hilarious Jackson. (he says “pizza” just for me, I know it. <3)

       I started following PF because he would tweet cute sweet things about his kids, but sometimes it's uncomfortable when he is all "I will be at a mall! I will sign your boobs or whatever!" and worse: "Watch my wife's horrible Lifetime movie! It's awesome!" *cringe*

      This is why I don't follow celebrities. I get second hand embarrassed for both of us sometimes.

  • ladyofthemeadow

    I hope Chris tweets and answers some of my burning questions:

    - who can benchpress more weight, Taylor or Kellan? and who’s got bigger biceps? did you see any ‘roids? (maybe I don’t want to know, on that last one)
    - at what time did you notice the possibility of Robsten getting together?
    - did Rob borrow your mustard pants ever? did he return them? do you think he kept them and dyed them red?
    - did those skinny actors ever EAT anything? if so, I will hate them for being able to eat and still stay skinny (half kidding)
    - can KStew really act or did she play herself?
    - why didn’t the makeup people bleach Nikki’s eyebrows to match her blonde hair?
    - did Rob complain when he got his brows waxed? we heard he was a wuss about the contacts
    - what’s his opinion on whether we should get a preview of the BD wedding dress?
    - definitely agree, I’d like to know if Big Daddy is a Big Diva and whether Taytay cringed when the Diva came out

       ‘did Rob borrow your mustard pants ever? did he return them? do you think he kept them and dyed them red?’ hahahaha

      speaking of bleaching eyebrows, don’t they get paid enough to dye their hair instead of using stupid wigs?  Well Alice’s hair is a different story, but serious, it would grow out.  Kristin had a mullet for her other movie. 

      • ladyofthemeadow

        I agree, please cut and style the hair instead of give them wigs! I wonder if actors get to put in their contracts that their hair won’t get cut (i.e. destroyed to the point of being a problem for their next role).

        On the plus side for wigs: wigs don’t change, so no continuity problems from one day of filming to the next.

        Okay, I’m just wondering aloud here. I  don’t know anything about this really.

        • natteringyeahrobber

          On the negative side for wigs: wigs don’t change, so actors look continuously, consistently ridiculous in every single shot.

          Also, they should have just had Bella going through a Joan Jett/80′s rocker phase (just like they have some actresses go through an ugly tunic phase whenever they are pregnant IRL). Work that into the script somehow, why not, would have beat the wig. Plus JJ songs could have easily been worked into the soundtrack – JJ’s version of Have You Ever Seen the Rain (very Forksy), Bad Reputation, Light of Day, Do You Wanna Touch Me.

          • Anonymous

            Yeah, screw ‘My Love’. ‘Do You Wanna Touch Me’ would have been the best choice for the leghitch scene, obviously. 

          • TeamSeth

            I’d like a little Bikini Kill too… 

            When Bella cuts her arm to distract Victoria they cue “Rebel Girl! Rebel Girl! Rebel Girl you are the queen of my world!” and then when Edward walks over it’d be all, “That girl thinks she’s the queen of the neighborhood,” Edward grabs her shirt “Well I’ve got news for you,” Edward rips her shirt, “SHE IS!”  Then they, instead of like tying her off and being lame, go into a really hot and aggressive sex scene like in season 3 of TB with Bill & Sookie after the wolf attack in her house.  And the blood would just pour out and sully the pure white snow.

            When she talks, I hear the revolutions
            In her hips, there’s revolutions
            When she walks, the revolution’s coming
            In her kiss, I taste the revolution

            Rebel girl, Rebel girl
            Rebel girl you are the queen of my world
            Rebel girl, Rebel girl
            I know I wanna take you home
            I wanna try on your clothes oh

            Hm, maybe that last part is a little too Robsten…

        • TeamSeth

          On the plus side for wigs: wigs don’t change, so no continuity problems from one day of filming to the next.

          I heard from Stephenie Meyer during the commentary in Eclipse that Kristen had like 20 wigs in Eclipse.  So…no continuity.  And SM was not a fan of the wig.

          And I read that Nikki had so much damage to her hair after dying it for Twi that she did put it into her contract she wouldn’t dye it for the rest of them.

          No dedication.

        All of these are excellent points to bring up. (why are her eyebrows so daaarrrkkkk?) Maybe not answerable in 140 characters, but that is what DMing personal email is about. :)

        • TeamSeth

          Clearly CDubs is comfortable giving out his personal email on twitter DMs.  He gave me it so I could get his RL addy and send him a loquat pie.  I tweeted it after superhumanmoron mentioned his response to her question regarding such events.

          I actually had a dream about loquats (yes the actual fruit) last night.  It was part of my Eric Northman dream series that has graciously been going on for a couple of weeks.  I looked out the window of our balcony apartment (yes, “our” as in me and Eric) and saw the neighbor’s loquat tree had start to bear fruit and it triggered a childhood memory.  Then I woke up.  Weird.

          ANYWAY… I’ll let you know what C-Dubs says.

    OK, I have to confess I only signed up for the Twitter so that I could tweet Chris Weitz.  True. But then I forgot what I wanted to ask him, so he was spared my embarrassing questions!  And my short attention span was distracted by finding all the other celebrities and semi-celebrities and random funny people I could follow, and then I couldn’t keep up and lost interest.

    The most second-hand embarrassing thing people tweet Chris is when they ask things about Eclipse or Breaking Dawn, and he has to explain that he did not direct either one.  Geez, people.

    What about phone number gate a week or so back? CW was on after a long absence and tweeting like crazy. It was great until some (idiot) girl kept asking for Rob and kristen’s phone #s-so chris jokingly gave #’s with the 555 prefix-people were actually calling them and getting pissed they weren’t working. Hello! He got all flustered and left. It was cringe worthy.

    He answered my tweet once-I got him right when he came on and he was sweet. I did a little internal happy dance-dork.

    Is it wrong that I keep reading CW and instead of thinking Chris Weitz, I think the TV Network. Then I get confused and start thinking how would the CW know about Twilight? It’s the Vampire Diaries’s network. Are they asking about a Edward/Damon dance off? Shouldn’t they be asking about Gossip Girl and One Tree Hill?

    Now that I realize it’s CHRIS WEITZ, it all makes sense. Also, I realize how lame I am.

    A few days, someone tweeted him about his orange pants. I had to restrain myself from tweeting that person and correcting them: mustard. Not orange, MUSTARD. C’mon people. Unless he also has orange pants? He also recently confessed to being on the 4 Hour Body Diet. I googled that book and the subtitle is (not kidding): “An Uncommon Guide to Rapid Fat-Loss, Incredible Sex, and Becoming Superhuman”
    Which seems uh, gimmicky, and uh, lame, but then I saw photos of him last night wearing that hot black velour blazer, looking all svelte, sexy and superhumany. So I guess it works.

      I have a ridiculous love hate relationship with diet books. Wait, scratch that, it is not ridiculous, it is completely expected. Anyway, I checked out the (4-hour body) website once and it didn’t seem that gimmicky, mostly following a low carb and low animal diet i.e. eating a lot of lentils while spending 4 hours a month total at the gym, but making those 4 hours count. The thing that did not make me want anything to do with it however, is the whole hyper in the self help industry I’ve got so many great ideas verbal diarrhea feeling of it. I kind of got a male version of Suzanne Somers feeling. I’ll help you lose weight, and have a better sex life, and age gracefully, and be superhuman. Suuuuurrrrrre you will. Let me just go grab my facial stimulator. I guess the idea of sex and dieting advice together in the same book must appeal to people, but its a no thanks for me.

      • natteringyeahrobber

        4 hours of exercise per month? Well, I guess it does capitalize on the fact that most people hate gyms and exercising. And adding sex to the title probably attracts male readers. And the word superhuman probably lures people who want to become vampires who can eat a cheeseburger now and then.

        Sorta OT, but I like how True Blood has a few fat/bald/wrinkled vampire characters. Like, not all vampires have to be totally fit and hot looking, they can also be just regular people. I guess the Volturi code doesn’t allow vampires who are below 7 on the hotness scale, just like they don’t allow children vampires. Turning someone like Paul Giamatti would equal death, I suppose.

          I’m doing an edge of your seat holy *fuck (fanfic Edward’s favorite word, hands down) I’m hungry diet. I tend to eat anticipatorily, which is a really good idea of you are pregnant or diabetic. But if you are on the chubby side and it is hard to lose those last baby pounds, then I figure getting comfortable with a little hunger is probably beneficial, granted it is not causing any binging activity/over compensating during meals. I’m not going to count it as “working” until I’ve lost past the 5 pounds I’ve been losing and gaining for the past year.

            Hm… I call those my “flux” and count them as acceptable since sometimes they’re not there and sometimes they are…kind of like they take a vacation for part of the year (month/week, etc)

            But, I’ve not had a baby, so I can’t really comment :)

           Well, in Twi, the lore is such that you transform into super hot… whereas the TB lore is such that you are just how you were.

          I suppose that’s sucky cuz you’d not be able to change.  I guess.  They do not address that… “unchanging” in the show.  And I have not read all the books yet.  So, perhaps that’s not the case?

          Anyway, what the hell does super human even mean?!

          (ps-thanks guys, now I feel even guiltier for not having been to the gym in like 2.5 months (or more, hm.) and having this upcoming wedding thing to look hot for and try and get a tan. You know, this whole PacNW thing is way overrated. Aren’t people who aren’t vampires supposed to be, like, tan?)

        • TeamSeth

          I guess the Volturi code doesn’t allow vampires who are below 7 on the
          hotness scale, just like they don’t allow children vampires. Turning
          someone like Paul Giamatti would equal death, I suppose.

          Maybe that’s what the cut of Charlie Bewley throwing that chick across the room is all about?

          BECAUSE IT MAKES NO SENSE. (shakes fist at Condon)

    CW was on Fresh Air on NPR just a little while ago, and it was actually a pretty good interview.  Her interviews with entertainment industry people are often rather boring. But he seems like a pretty cool guy.

      I just caught the end of that interview! I was in the library for most of the interview and was kind of bummed I missed it.

        And another moment of what’s that mean… Fresh Air is NOT Fresh Prince of Bel Air.

      I caught the whole thing!  Wow amazing family.  His grandfather was Jewish and barely made it out of Germany before WWII! His father spoke German and during the war infiltrated the Nazis! His grandmother was a Mexican silent film star and made a Spanish-language version of Dracula!  His mother was nominated for an Academy Award!

      But hello, second-hand embarrassing again, Terry Gross couldn’t stop behaving like a giggly fangirl and asking about New Moon, although CW was there to talk about his new film A BETTER LIFE!  He was very polite about it, as always.

      • Stacey

        I always knew Terry Gross was a Twilight fangirl. The question is…Team Edward or Team Jacob?

        I would love to hear her interview Pattinson. It would be giggling Rob goodness.

          We talked about wanting Terry to interview Rob years ago at LTR.  Still waiting!  You know she wants it!

          • Stacey

            I really thought it was going to happen for Water for Elephants, but not then either.

            Watch it happen for Bel Ami! Ohh that would be so good and fantastically awkward.

            Every once in a while Terry Gross loses her cool and giggles so much she snorts. It’s a rare but magical moment in radio.

        It sounds like we should make a movie about C-Dubs life and times. 
        “Mustard Pants and Drácula: A Memoir of C-Dubs”

  • TeamSeth

    First, and maybe someone mentioned this already, is that kid full size?  He looks like super teeny in that photo, but too old to be that dinko.  Like the perspective is skewed or he’s superimposed?!

    or I’m going crazy(ier).  That’s always possible.  Especially today.  Am off to finish the letter and hopefully have a giggle or two to make today seem less like a big shit fest on my head.

  • TeamSeth

    Moon, didn’t you MEET C-Dubs back in the day before he’d revealed his mustard pants to the world?

    I’m glad all my tweets to him are on the approved list.  I’ve only tweeted about his pants and how I miss them so AND berated him for ignoring one of the LTTers (I forget who now… TJE probably?  NutSlut?  Nat?  I think it was Nat actually) because she was asking legitimate and appropriate questions (like did he plan to have the mustard pants tailored).

    I DO kind of want to tweet him and ask him if he’s like Tupac, since he said he was done with movie making and now he’s making more movies… like how Tupac died and then released more albums.

    Is C-Dubs alive?!

    I followed CW for a while, but then had to unfollow him because the 2nd hand embarrassing was destroying my otherwise happy Twitter experience. Kudos to him, however, for his attempt to brave the crazy massess and reach out to “fans.” 

    Despite my lack of Twitter support for him, I still am extremely grateful to him: I believe New Moon was the best of the 3 movies (in my opinion…and also in my opinion, redeemed the horrific cinematic experience that Cathy gave us), his mustard pants were sensational and unforgettable, and he reminds me of my husband (albeit an artsier one: sadly, my husband does not wear mustard pants, though he has a similar physique so I suppose it could work).

      Please tell me that when you say “made Twilight an embarrassment and a laughing stock” that you are not being deadly serious. Oprah Twilight Moms did that.

    OT:
    I was looking for a .75 paperback at the thrift store the other day. and picked up a Nora Roberts book. I’ve never read one, and there are like a million, so I figured if I liked it I’d have plenty more to choose from, and if I didn’t I was only out 75 cents. So I look at the first page of writing, and the first sentence I see ” Douglas Edward Cullen had to pee”. So I decided this was the .75 book for me!
    The funny thing is there is also a Jacob, and his full name is Jacob Greystone – ha ha Jacob Grey! There is also an Alice, and a Carlisle although different spelling.
    The book is Copyright 2003, so perhaps Steph was reading a certain Nora Roberts novel before she had The Dream?
    I’ve just started the book, so I am just waiting for the rest of the cast to show up.

    • TeamSeth

      Perhaps she was…  I mean, Carlisle??! I’d never heard that until Twilight, and then of course I meet someone named Carlisle…because that’s normal (e)

       well you have to get in line because there  are many book before twilght that are similar that makes people wonder if SM writing is original.

        It’s difficult not to be inspired or influenced, don’t you think? Certainly if you are an avid reader- I mean, aren’t most stories just variations on Romeo & Juliet or the Illiad?

        • Anonymous

          Originality is not terribly important to me. More important questions: How did that shit turn out? Even if she had read that book, and without knowing it named characters with the same names, even if she had started Twilight with the phrase “Edward Anthony Mason Cullen had to pee”, I would have loved the hell out of it.

            First, I have obviously been on vacation with a bunch of 6 year olds because just the word “pee” makes me giggle. (true story: my daughter asked me a question, I turned and burped loudly in her ear in response. She said, “Mom that’s the funniest thing you’ve ever done.” Yep. Time to go home. :D)

            Second, it’s sort of cliche to say there are no new ideas, but with so much media and free time available to us, it’s impossible not to be influenced. And I think it’s a good thing, because we can explore ideas more fully. I really totally had more thought on that, but my Vacation Coffee Buzz just ran out. Just think of that as my Topic Sentence.

            Certainly. I can think of a million times that I heard a song covered by another artist, and liked the cover better. Like your burp wasn’t the first burp, but it was the funniest to your daughter. There ya go.
