New Faces Friday: MacKenzie Foy


You thought we forgot to feature MacKenzie Foy for New Faces Friday, didn’t you? Well, we didn’t.

But we already featured her interview back in July, so hop on over to that old post to read our sit-down with MacKenzie the adorable: LTT and friends interview MacKenzie Foy.

Guys do you know what is almost live? That’s Normal. That’s right- we didn’t forget about that either (We have more lives these days than we used to so we’re behind on most except for drooling over Damon on Vampire Diaries. Well, UC, that is) But seriously: GET EXCITED. We are. That’s Normal will officially launch 11/1.

Oh and try not to be creeped out by this. You’re welcome:

Renesmee: It’s happening whether we want it to or not

Dear Renesmee,

I feel like here on LTT we haven’t been fair to you. The only time we talk about you is when we’re posting the most creep-tastic images we’ve gathered of you and Jacob from across the web like this old favorite:

or this new epic find:

And what can we do BUT make fun of or be creeped out by the whole Jacob/Nessie story line after seeing these pictures? Nothing. And so we haven’t. For a long time (for all of time, actually).

But maybe we’re not being fair. Maybe we just have the inability to view your relationship like it should be viewed as this innocent big-brother-little-sister thing like shown here in this (fan made, I think?) picture:

because we’re old cynical women– kinda annoyed that you came into the picture just when it was getting steamy between your mom & your dad– but also because in real life the grown(growing)-man-little-girl relationship isn’t usually a positive one…. but what IS real life about Twilight? It’s a story about VAMPIRES and WOLVES and a Police Chief Grandpa who doesn’t question his daughter disappearing and reappearing less than 9 months later with a baby growing years-worth in mere days. Why do we judge YOUR character in real life terms when we don’t bat an eye at townspeople not questioning how a 20-something couple are raising 6 model-like teenagers?

I don’t know. But Renesmee seems to be happening whether we want it/her/you to or not. Evidenced by a sit down Moon got to partake in during Comic Con week with some other fan sites. And MacKenzie Foy (you, IN REAL LIFE!) is kinda adorable:

Peekaboo Moon in the back!

I guess we’ll try to deal. I said try. (And we’re pretty horrible at trying, fyi)

UC & Moon

What do you think? Concerned about how creeped out we’ve made you over the years over the Renesmee story-line? Wondering if Chris Hansen might be in your theater the first time you see Breaking Dawn Part 2?

Wanna hear what MacKenzie had to say? Wondering how many teeth she lost and which female Twilight star DEFINITELY had to contribute to her “Swear jar” (Easy guess) Full interview with MacKenzie after the jump!

“Is Edward Gay?” And other things Guys say about Twilight…

I’m back from a business trip to Kansas City (Did I even tell you I was gone?) and Operarose shares a hilarious story with us today!

Breaking Dawn Letters To twilightDear Breaking Dawn,

My husband is perhaps the only person in the universe who does not know what’s between your covers. I know you might be surprised that there’s someone out there whose heart isn’t palpitating in anticipation of the impending magicness of the Robst-I mean, Bella and Edward wedding and subsequent deflowering that results in a precious birth scene followed by the “Sequence In Which Taylor Lautner’s Career Will Likely End,” but as a PhD student in industrial engineering, Mr. Operarose is far more likely to have his nose buried in a book on Pierce-Smith Converting than the tale on Bella Converting into an Anorexic Vampire.

That’s not to say he’s a complete Twilight virgin. Mr. Operarose was introduced to Twiworld back in 2009, accompanying me to New Moon when the only people in the world I felt “safe” seeing it with were busy. To my shock, a few days later he requested to watch Twilight and later insisted we go see Eclipse together in theaters.

Although he’s far from being a unicorn, it’s safe to say that he’s interested in seeing this Twilight experience through. So, it’s a given that we’re going to see Breaking Dawn together in November. However, he has not yet seen the Breaking Dawn Part 1 trailer and I have never told him what happens in the book. Over dinner tonight, I confessed that I wasn’t looking forward to the movie this time around. Naturally, he wondered why.

“There’s a part in it that not a lot of us are looking forward to,” I said (and by us, he knew who I meant because I’ve told him about LTT) “It’s not going to translate well on-screen.”

Mr. Operarose pushed me further.

“What is it? Does Edward turn out to be gay”

As if I hadn’t heard that one before.

Breaking Dawn White Trash

Bet Mr. Operarose will NEVER guess this one

I decided to have a little fun and see if he could really guess the outcome. He’d successfully guessed the major points of the ending of the Harry Potter series before the release of Deathly Hallows Pt. 1&2, despite having never read the books. But it’s one thing to determine that Snape is good, quite another thing to predict the birth of Renesmee.

He took up the challenge, and grew serious. “I think the Volturi want Edward and Edward is going to consider joining them.”

Not a bad guess – and not a bad plot idea. “You’re sort of on to something,” I said. “That’s a little bit of part of the story, but not the main thing most of us are concerned about. There’s something major that happens to Bella and Edward.”

I told him they got married and honeymoon in Brazil.

“So something happens in Brazil,” he said.


“Is Bella kidnapped by Columbian drug dealers?” he joked.

I shook my head. “I wish.”

I said Jacob would still be a big part of the story and gets a happy ending despite not having ended up with Bella.

“He ends up falling in love! So Jacob gets himself a little girlfriend,” he mused.

“Little being the key word.” I was getting worried, suddenly, not so sure I want to get into it after all. Thoughts of sippy cup blood and Chris Hansen chasing after Jacob were ruining my perfectly good macaroni and cheese dinner.

“A magical creature?” he continued.

“Sort of…”

“Jacob is gay!”

There it is again, universal straight male “I don’t know what to say” reaction to anything Twilight.

“A little GIRL friend is more accurate,” I said, trying to steer him back on course.

He starts to get really off track then, going on about how on their honeymoon, Edward will come over to where we are living now (which happens to be in South America, not too far from Brazil) and I will fight Bella for Edward. Before the conversation goes way off into a territory which usually involves me mud wrestling Bella (it may or may not have gone there before), I recap, and let him know that Jacob’s story gets brought in LATER, after SOMETHING happens to Bella and Edward on their honeymoon.

Jacob Black and Renesmee

Yep. This is about right

“Jacob falls in love with a vampire?”

“Pretty close.”

“But he falls in love with something much smaller? That’s bad.”

He’s so astute. “You have no idea,” I tell him.

“Is it a bird? A ghost? An Ewok? A short hunchback that is bald?”

“That may have been much better, for on-screen purposes at least…”

“So it’s not quite a vampire, it’s much smaller. Is it a bat?” He asks, joking again.

By then I felt a bit like an anthropologist, studying what people predicted would happen to Bella and Edward “BBD” (Before Breaking Dawn).” If Mr. Operarose, who is normally incredibly observant and extremely intelligent, can’t predict the absurdity that is Renesmee, then I decided that I should probably just let it be a surprise for him in November.

Besides, I realized just in time that I maybe shouldn’t risk him deciding not to go with me to Breaking Dawn. I don’t have anyone else to see it with (my social circle is small since we just moved here, and I’d rather not risk making it smaller by coming out of the Twicloset).

Breaking Dawn Scares meTo conclude our conversation aka my “BBD anthropology” research, I asked him how he wanted Bella and Edward’s story to end.

“I’d like it if we saw Edward trying to react to the Volturi’s attempts to take him in. It should be revealed that the Volturi are in conflict with a group of vampires who are challenging their power in the vampire world. The rival group should rise up and then there would be a Cold War situation between them.”

Duly impressed, I told him that he might just like Breaking Dawn after all… part 2, that is.


Have you had to explain the err more interesting parts of Breaking Dawn to a guy? I’m pretty sure I STILL haven’t told Mr. Choice what happens!

Jacob & Renesmee: I just can’t imagine it

I realize that reading this NOW after the big MAJOR SPOILER BREAKING DAWN LEAKAGE OF STILLS OF BASICALLY THE ENTIRE TWO MOVIES is pretty anticlimactic, but I wrote this Wednesday night & I’m currently on a plane to Florida, so there was no time for an update. But laugh with me that I considered THIS a spoiler as of Wednesday! Xo

Dear Breaking Dawn,

Today’s letter is brought to you by a MAJOR SPOILER ALERT. Well, I think. I could have actually imagined that I heard this little Breaking Dawn rumor. I’m not SEEKING out info. If I come across it, I sometimes read it, but I’m not opposed to being completely surprised with this movie. Just because… I can’t imagine how it’s not going to be so freaking’ creepy. Like when I imagine Breaking Dawn, I picture this Halloween costume:

So I try to not to go there, ya know? Anyway, back to my SPOILER ALERT. I remember hearing that they “Cast” the older Renesmee. And, as a result, speculation was swirling that there would be a “grown up” scene between Jacob & Renesemee. Aww sweet. Less ick factor, right?


Jake needs a Do-over

That’s where I have a problem. IS that less “ick factor?” Let’s say, for example, that Taylor gets his day in the sun. Or Jacob does, rather. They both need to get some- doesn’t matter who. Taylor needs to prove to the world he CAN kiss without major head-bobbing motions like with Jake’s big moment with Bella, but….. with Reneseme? Renesmee who we see as a baby one minute, a child then next & then flash forward to a scene where she is potentially kissing her big bro-protector-turned-lover Jacob Black? Umm… ick. Right?

Team Jacob deserves this, I get it. There is a HUGE portion of the Twilight fandom on Taylor’s side & they’d LOVE to see him with a little tonsil hockey action with anyone (Suggestion: Maybe Jake & Leah sip a few too many Mike’s Hard Lemonades down at La Push one night? Give Team Jacob a little french-kiss action there? Just a thought) But what if there is a Jake & Nessie scene that is…. HOT? Maybe Alice is seeing the future or something (creepy, Alice…has life with Jasper really gotten that stale?) but then we go back to the present, where Renesemee is a CHILD? I can’t wrap my head around this….!

I know I should probably trust the movie makes on this one, but, of course I don’t.

During my first read of Breaking Dawn, Jake & Nessie never creeped me out. I didn’t like that a kid was introduced.. I wanted Bella & Edward love making 24/7 without the distraction of a mouth to feed a deer to, but I never really thought about the creepiness till I met you all & your aversion to the creepiness effed with me! But NOW it’s all i think about… WHAT WILL THIS BE LIKE!?

Think on this for a few minutes with me. The following is cute:

Aww! It's like Jake's a 24/7 petting zoo

Only thing creepy about this is Bella creeping in the corner (Reminds me of Creepy Eddie in the van. Remember him?)

Everyone needs a fluffy friend to comfort them

and my own personal favorite:


Jake, Nessie & Seth

All appropriate, right? Weird, sure. But we’ve known that Jacob imprints on Renesmee now for like 3 years. We need to get over this. It’s time to move on. We get that he’s not creeping on a kid. It’s just a weird thing that doesn’t actually happen in real life.

But THEN…. this:


Jake & Nessie of Green Gables

"This is how your mom liked to be held too!"


Am I right to be worried?

Don’t creep me out,

So…. WHAT do you think? How is this gonna go down? Am I overreacting? Will it be all cool? Will we be able to look at little McKenzie Foy the same way again if the flash-forward scene happens like is rumored? (PS: I found the link where I think I read the spoiler)

*UPDATE – this seems ironic now that we’ve sen them together (allegedly). This is a reminder PLEASE DO NOT LINK OR POST ANY OF THE LEAKED IMAGES. We like our limbs and our money. THANKS!*

Breaking down THE bed picture- you know, the underwhelming one….

Dear Breaking Dawn,

Moon & I started breaking dawn THE BED picture, and then ended up just creeping each other out. Hope you enjoy!


UC: OMG OMG OMG OMG… did you see it? The most over-hyped underwhelming picture of Edward & Bella in BED of the year!?
Moon: why yes, yes i did- i tweeted it out like an hr later. and then sat around and watched the crazy descend
UC: way to be on TOP of it (ahem) on top like Edward. Missionary style what whatttt!!
Moon: Bella’s first time
UC: Question: when you thought about yourself as Bella, doing it with Edward for the first time, because you know you did, how did you envision it? Missionary? I know you save your doggy style fantasizing for your Jake fantasies..
Moon: doesn’t Stephenie describe it as missionary in the book?? Cause he doesn’t want to crush her?
UC: does she GET that descriptive? Oh yes… the crushing….
Moon: ps the fact we’re breaking down the position is disturbing for any family members or friends reading
UC: sorry to all of them. but it’s SERIOUS, and we discuss SERIOUS things
Moon: and YET you’d think if he didn’t want to crush her it’d be the other way around
UC: also isn’t missionary best for baby-making? ? and since they make a baby (SPOILER ALERT)… or is that a myth
I will google it: Ah- Informative

“You may have heard that positions that deposit the sperm closest to the cervix — such as the missionary position (man on top) — are more promising than other positions. But there are no studies to back this up.”

thank you but getting back to our fantasies.. I’m trying to think……
Moon: so wrong. isn’t everything about sex made up? it seems….
UC: I think so.
Moon: i mean if urban dictionary hasn’t heard of it than it can’t be true

Less Sex than on CSI

UC: right. So there’s that… Edward’s on top.. Big surprise. Are we jaded & t hat’s why we weren’t overwhelmed like it seemed the entirety of twitter was by this?
Moon: well i mean i guess i was underwhelmed cause its like we already know this happens, right? We’ve all read the books. they do it.
UC: right…. i know… i think we’ve built it up more in our minds… and at the end of the day… it’s just sex. And it’s going to be less sex than we generally see on an episode of CSI (believe me, I watched like 12 in the last few days i’ve been sick)
Moon: Or maybe we’re underwhelmed because it wasn’t on a bear skin rug. And even if its really Edward and Bella, Kristen and Rob should insist on any LOVE MAKING being on an animal hide
UC: I KNOW- it should be in their contracts. It should be wolf skin- just to stick it a little to Jacob
Moon: the fireplace is negotiable. The rug, NOT. It should be on a white wolf skin- the rarest of all! Suck it jacob!!
UC: have fun waiting 18 years for the zygote growing inside of me to grow up so you can get it on with her
UC: I just became Bella there.. in case you couldn’t tell
Moon: poor jacob. his life is the epitome of a “true love waits” campaign
UC: haha So true.. he’ll have to ask Kellan for tips
Moon: maybe kellan has given taylor pointers on how this works best
UC: jinx

The one where Faith Hill did it first

Moon: ALSO maybe it’s not ZOMG for us because it’s something thats pretty straightforward and less something we don’t know how it will turn out- like maybe if it was from the transformation or birth or something with Renesmee it’d be diff
UC: right…. they do it… it’s a glowing sunlit morning…. the sheets are beige….
Moon: I’d even say the feathers were better because it left so much to the imagination
UC: I’m thinking of another sex scene where you see a lot of beige translucent sheets….Wait..i’m pretty sure it’s Faith Hill’s video for “Breathe” but it might be from a movie…
Moon: and PS this is clearly from the same shoot with the feathers. give us something NEW!
UC: that’s how the scene always played out in my mind… and the hand with feathers, and now this, is proving even more to me that it will be that.. we’ll see the back of Edward- with Bella’s hand clasping at his skin…. maybe he’ll turn her on top for a second… a translucent beige sheet (or canopy from the bed) will fall and we’ll just see their outline.. and then up close shots of their mouths… all to a really kick ass song…like how the Sia song fit during the leg hitch scene
Moon: exactly. It will be all very tastefully and not crazy intense
UC: you’re right. no surprise.
Moon: cause this is a family film, and it will NOT be some crazy s&m, fan fic scenario. So everyone should ACCEPT it now
Moon: save the crazy shiz for after Bella’s is an indestructible vampire. She’d be more down for whips once he can’t kill her accidentally
UC: What this scene WILL be is great fodder for Robsten video makers. So we have that to look forward to!!
Moon: Dude bill condon already turned it sepia for them!! they’re half way there! All they need is an awkward song from celine dion and clips from a soft core porn and its done!
