A sit down with Esme, Carlisle & Rosalie

Dear Twilight,

We got a chance to sit in on another round table interview with our fansite friends during Comic Con with Peter Facinelli, Elizabeth Reaser & Nikki Reed. We aren’t the “post transcripts of interviews” kinda-gals (partly b/c up until 5 minutes ago we were the red-headed stepchildren of Twilight and all our interviews were made up (Have no fear– we still are stepchildren. We just would rather be pink-haired if that’s cool with you)) and also because there are tons of fansites out there if you want to read interview with the cast. We’d rather share our commentary. We think it’s that important*

But today I have 1,000 things on my to-do list & MOON is leaving us AGAIN for Africa on Friday. She needs to stop going to Africa. For reals. Twilight needs her. So not much commentary to share.

But I DID discover that we’ve never shared fanart of Esme & Carlisle. Which I apologize for. Because this shizz is goodddddddddddd:

Breaking Dawn is trying to sell us something else

Dear Breaking Dawn Promo stuff,

Sometimes I get the feeling you are trying to sell me more than just the movie. Like when I look at the promo pictures it feels like there’s really an underlying message or brand I’m being sold. It’s as if the Summit Marketing team got together to come up with some ideas for “brand partnerships” to create “film and corporate synergy.” Yea, I’m pretty sure the word “synergy” was used a lot… So when I saw this latest batch of promo headshots from Breaking Dawn I knew I had to be onto something…
.


Poor dude who plays Caius, with every movie he loks progressively more and more like Fabio. They might as well just give him a tub of butter to hold while he’s sitting behind Aro in the Voltera, Italy scenes and help make some extra money with product placement.

Charley Bewley is like one faux hawk and guy liner fueled make up and hair session away from his own Ed Hardy ad campaign. Poor guy, it’s not like he wants a rhinestrone tiger havng sex with a Koi fish on his chest, give the guy a break folks.
.


Carlisle’s not just the president, he’s also a member!

Dude, Carlisle is already winning the race for worst wig in Breaking Dawn and we haven’t even seen the film yet. YIKES.
.


Sure, most of Kellan’s life has been spent looking like an outtake from International Male Catalogue but we don’t need the official promo shots reminding everyone! Though I’m pretty sure Emmett did some Internantional Male Modeling in the 80s, I don’t want to see his mesh shirt collection any times soon.

(For a good time google image search “International Male Catalogue”)
.


Why does Edward ALWAYS end up looking like an Insurance salesmen/Real Estate broker/Weatherman/Boringest Person In the World??? How is it possible to make Robert Pattinson look like the dad across the street? Stop trying so hard Wardrobe Dept! We know he’s 107 years old, we’re supposed to be tricking the dumb Forks, WA townspeople not making a neon sign pointing to this guy saying “This guy could be your great grandpa not your son’s classmate!”
.


Sorry Alice… Sorry Twimoms but COME ON! Though I feel this latest incarnation of Alice’s hair is probably closeted to how Stephenie describes it, it still looks like she should be loading up orange slices and Capri Suns into the mini van.
.


While Emmett was busy modeling for International Male in the 80s, Jasper deciding to make some extra dough moonlighting at the local Chippendale’s club. Doing that face the entire time. Just that face, some cuffs and a g string. All night long. Try not to laugh. When Chippendale’s went belly up because of a Bachlorette party done awry Jasper made the move to modeling heinous man jewelry for Hot Topic. They already have replica Bella saint bracelets, the wedding ring and Alice’s velvet choker (!!!) why not take the next step and offer the small male contingency who loves Twilight some Jasper jewelry? I know what I’m getting The Font and White Yorkie for Christmas! Terrible  jewelry!!!

Am I the only one who feels this way about some of these promo’s? Maybe I should be hired by Summit to oversee Brand Synergy! Clearly, I have a knack for what’s happening.

Off to Chipendales!

Why do they always look so crazy? Do you guys feel the same way?

Twilight Rumors

Not a rumor- a dream

Dear Gossip hounds,

A few weeks back I got a frantic IM chat from a friend saying BREAKING NEWS: The Twilight saga ends on 11/16/2012. My immediate thought was, “Breaking? Didn’t that break months ago?” And as I thought more about it…. I don’t know. I definitely knew the Twilight Saga was wrapping in November of 2012- or maybe that was a rumor I heard once. Orrrr maybe someone in the know told me. Maybe Stephenie Meyer wrote it on a slip of paper & passed it to us under the table at the interview and we were like, “Seriously? We ask you for the Robsten audition tape so we can burn it and you give us this?” or maybe I actually didn’t know that date and just assumed that to be the case? Because that’s what Harry Potter did (and Summit realizes they should copy them since they’re kinda successful) or I’m just way too involved in this fandom that I have a sense about these kind of things. I get a tingly feeling & just know the Twi-future. Call me Alice.

Then I got to thinking- I don’t know what’s real, rumor or secretive anymore. I mean, IS it public knowledge that Ashley Greene & Joe Jonas are together? Or is that just still a rumor circulating among the gossip rags? And is it actually true or do I just want it to be true- a former Disney star with a purity ring giving it up to an up-and-coming star too beautiful to be already desperate enough to date someone born in the 90s (who just yesterday turned old enough to legally knock back a few shots before she shows him what’s underneath that painted on bathing suit)  And don’t even get me started on all the rumors we’ve been told about different Twi cast members being gay. (Some obvious, some not so obvious, some that we spent an entire weekend laughing over until we decided it couldn’t be true- or wait, could it!? Sorry- mums the word!) I mean unless it’s Rob- does anyone honestly really care? Well, maybe we’d care if we found out Taylor was too… because that would make so much sense.

So I started thinking about all the rumors I’ve heard over the past almost 2 years and I came up with quite a list…. mostly about Robsten… and people Ashley may or may not have slept with… Did I miss anything?

  • Why would you cheat on me? Do I look special or something?

    Rob & Nikki are together

  • Rob & Kristen are hooking up behind Oregano’s back
  • Kristen & Nikki are more than friends (I started that one, thank you very much)
  • Nikki sold out Rob & Kristen
  • Kristen is pregnant
  • Ashley’s hooked up with Kellan
  • Ashley’s hooked up with Jackson
  • Ashley’s dating Jared from Kings of Leon (and assumingly has hooked up with him)
  • Rob & Kristen are together
  • Rob & Kristen are no longer together
  • Rob & Kristen- BACK ON
  • No one likes Nikki Reed
  • Jackson hooks up with anyone & everyone
  • Rob & Kristen like to hold hands
  • Kellan is sticking his tongue down that Anna girl’s throat
  • Taylor is with Taylor Swift
  • Taylor is gay
  • Justin Chon is gay
  • David Slade is gay
  • People still don’t like Nikki Reed. And possibly don’t like Elizabeth Reeser either

    Why don't people like me!?

  • Peter & Jennie are swingers
  • Twi (male) cast member in Vancouver put ad in Craig’s list for Asian male companionship
  • Big Daddy Lautner wears a fat suit (he’s actually really in shape)
  • Chris Hansen likes little boys
  • Nikki Reed started a blog so that people like her
  • A cat will play Edward Cullen in Breaking Dawn parts 1 & 2
  • Buttcrack Santa: What does he really do with those little bottles?
  • UnintendedChoice to replace Kristen Stewart as Bella in Breaking Dawn Parts 1 & 2 (for this rumor to be true the Edward Cullen played by a cat is not true)
  • Rob & Kristen open mouth kiss before heading into house parties where dirty men’s sweatpants are considered appropriate attire.

Okay so maybe I took some creative liberties on a few rumors… but most of them I’ve honestly heard at one time or another… So all that to say, this is what I have to say about the BREAKING NEWS about Breaking Dawn Part 2 that I may or may not have already known:

“Holy Shit. I seriously have to talk about this every day for another effing 2 and 1/2 years?”

Hold me,

UnintendedChoice

Beg all you want, some rumors stay with me- but seriously… what have you heard that came true or was proved wrong? Any good rumors circulating out there right now? Was there an immaculate conception of the Robsten baby by the open mouth house party kiss? Fingers crossed!

Open Post: BrookeLockart gets on the red carpet

For this week’s Open Post, we remember back to when that movie about vampires came out in June. Remember the one? Remember all the stuff that happened during the month of June for LTT & our friends? Well, we didn’t even get to all the stories yet! @Brookelockart got ON the red carpet & she regales her story with glee for us this weekend!

Dear LTTers,

Once upon a time, a bright-eyed, bushy-tailed, girl (me, duh) traveled across the country to the mean streets of L.A., on no sleep to venture to her first movie premiere ever! Not buying the innocent Brooke? Yeah, okay – I was freaking ecstatic about getting into the Eclipse premiere. I mean when @Lolashoes told me she came across tickets and asked me to go, I think that all brain functioning stopped.  I suddenly yelled out a, “SHUT THE FRONT DOOR!” in response to the amazing news. After Lola stopped laughing at my hokey outburst, we decided on our plans: I would meet @tby789 at the airport then go and pick up Lola and @wearingwords on our way to LA.

The Last Minute Twitter Fashion Show where I still hide my face

I stressed over what to wear to LA and gave my twitter following a mini fashion show to help me pick an outfit out. I mean really… what does one wear?

Sweet and innocent: Red Top and Polka dot skirt

All dressed up with somewhere to go! H&M party dress

Simple and breezy: The Loft silver/gray dress for elegance

Party Animal!: NY&CO Animal print

I’m not a lucky biatch like Moon is who has a different premiere to attend every month. These decisions were hard! I mean, what if I did run into Rob in the rest room… I mean lobby of the theatre? MUST look my best!

California Girls!

Fast forward to LA. We quickly (and by quickly, I mean that I changed my outfit 4 times) got ready at a nearby hotel, and we strutted our stuff over to LA Live. While the other ladies went to wait in the will call line, I called over to Moon to find out where she was hiding…

Can you spot Moon? Hint: She’s wearing pink

There was no way I could get to Moon in the stands, so I found my other #leghitch2010 ladies chilling at the ESPN zone where they had a clutch spot to see all the action.

Let me just tell you that I had no idea what to expect and there was no way I could have even imagined the insanity. Fans screaming, offering their first born, yelling for the stars’ attention while the MC of the event spoke like he just rolled in from East Compton. It was around the time that Tia and Tamara Mowry (Yeah, I watched Sister Sister, too!) rolled up when I got the call from Lola to haul ass over to will call because they were being ushered in.

Read the rest after the jump!

F*cking Amazing Luck for Lola and Me

I finally find Lola after power walking around the Nokia Theatre in 4.5 inch heels, where she’s waiting for me and a friend of a friend (let’s call him Bill) who’s coming by to make sure everything was okay with our tickets. Apparently while I was off with my LTT girls, there were issues finding the tickets. Bill finds Lola and me and offers to take us out to the red carpet. I’m sweaty, my hair is frizzing and starting to recurl, but THIS East Coaster was NOT going to miss out on this opportunity. Lola and I look at each other with wide eyes and give a resounding YES! Sadly for our friends, they had already gone in the theatre so we did what any modern ladies do: text them what’s happening and say we wished they were here too! We really did miss you @tby789 and @wearingwords!

Drunk on the Red Carpet

There we are, on the Red Capet – well the area next to the red carpet – and we’re drunk. There were a few drinks to be had while getting ready for the event and maybe a chocolate cake shot with @obird to celebrate #leghitch2010. So imagine how surreal being on a red carpet can feel… now imagine that a bit tipsy. YEAH!

There was no way I was letting this opportunity pass us by… I went into full East Coast mode: AGGRESSIVE. I politely loudly called over several stars, spoke to some and got photos with others… Just one little problem.. my cell and camera were about to die. Please, do not let this EVER happen to you because my cell and camera did eventually conk out, right around the time Kristen hit the red carpet. Sigh.

No fan girling here…

The first celeb that I inner fangirled over was Daniel Cudmore. My exact words to Lola were, “I think that I just want to rub my body against him” He is QUITE hot and manly in person. I was in LUST.

The celebrities flowed; I spoke to Anna and drunkenly told her she owns every scene she’s in. Really meant to say she steals every scene she’s in, but hey… close enough.

Got pictures with Peter (o hai Dr. Cullen), who was basically being groped by his wife as he walked around the red carpet (Jennie looked really pretty though).

Made eye contact with Mr. Copstache himself who sadly was sans stache. No matter, he was still looking fine and we got a fantastic photo with him.


And then I spotted Stephenie. I made it my mission to get her to come over and take a picture. I called her name a gazillion times and then called her assistant’s name, hoping that it was her assistant. After making a fool of myself for a good 10 minutes, Stephenie came over and took a picture with Lola and me (yes, the picture is full of irony)… I turned thanked her and then did what anyone does… I name dropped! Told her I was good friends with UC and we chatted about LTT. Stephenie gave me the tidbit about the Jorts making it into the commentary and babbled on…wondered if she knew I was the one that wrote the letter about Bree and asked her if she wouldn’t mind taking another picture with just me. FYI – I rule at the self-portrait.

(See Stephenie, LTT gives me laugh lines too)

Stephenie started talking to some other fans nearby and someone asked where she got her necklace. When she responded Anthropologie, my drunk ass decided to interject, “You know, Anthro’s headquarters are in Philly… you should come visit me and UC!” GAH, OMG, so embarrassing. Yes, I invited the queen of Twi universe to come chill with UC and me. *facepalm* At that point I just had to let her walk away. You are all welcome to be second-hand embarrassed for me because I’m certainly embarrassed for myself. (BTW Steph, that invite is still open)

We saw more celebs and Olympians. I loudly called them over and got some great pics. I saw Rob and Kristen fly by with their entourages. I loudly called them over too, but I was drowned out from the apparently team Jacob crowd fangirling so loudly that I couldn’t hear myself think. I never realized how many 15 year old girls somehow get onto the red carpet.

I get really really sappy

It was the experience of a lifetime! There are so many little funny stories that happened on the red carpet or in the theatre, but apparently I cannot tell this as a short story (sorry for the long read). Yes, I got to see Rob and Kristen, got pictures with Kellan, Peter and Billy, fell in lust with Daniel Cudmore, but it truly meant the most to me to meet Stephenie. Without her, there’d be no #leghitch2010, no friendship with Lola and no LTT girls. It’s been a rough couple years and that week in LA with my LTT besties was EXACTLY what I needed.

With much love and much embarrassment,

Brooke

Aww! Don’t be embarrassed Brookie! We’ve all been there & done that drunkenly around Peter, Billy Burke, Anna, Rob, Kristen & Stephenie before! Oh wait….. never mind….

Caught in the act, the real Twilight stars stealing from the set!

Dear In Style Magazine,

I just happened to be reading a little something in your magazine  In Style about the Twilight cast and if you had to chance to gank something from the set what would it be…

Robert Pattinson – “I keep everything from the set. I’ve stolen all of Edward’s clothes.”

Elizabeth Reaser – “My original Esme bracelet. I’ve seen reproductions of it in stores, but I want to keep the one that I wear once we finish [filming]. It’s mine!”

Taylor Lautner – “All my character wears is jean shorts, so I’ll have to go with those. That’s my only option!”

Julia Jones – “Leah’s cut-offs!”

Kellan Lutz – “Emmett’s Jeep! I’ve wanted it since we shot the first movie. I keep saying that, but nothing’s happened. I’m still waiting!”

By our powers combined he is Captain Compassion!

Peter Facinelli - “Carlisle’s ring! It has the Cullen crest, the symbol of the whole family, on it. I’d like to take it home and keep it in a drawer somewhere. Once, I couldn’t get it off my finger, so it did go home with me.”

Tinsel Korey – “My relationship with everybody from set. We get along like a real family. Our relationship is special.”

Xavier Samuel – “Vampires dress really well, so it would have to be Riley’s jacket. When you run it’s a bit flamboyant, but it looks good. I recommend running in those jackets.”

Alex Meraz – “The shorts are all I’ve got! We keep using the same shorts but I keep getting bigger for each film, so the shorts keep getting tighter. By the end of the series, they’re going to be torn. Hey, sex sells and I’m glad to sell it!”

Sure, the main cast is important, we all know Rob is clepto or just super cheap and hates shopping, and of course the wolves want their jorts, who doesn’t?  And someone had to give the cheesy answer about friends (Tinsel!) but what about the real people in these movies! What about the people that REALLY matter in the Twilight world, what would THEY keep from the set?

  • Dean – One of Jacob or Bella’s wigs. It’d be much easier to hide Rob in some of those shiteous wigs then a baseball cap and dirty clothes. Everyone’s looking for a dude in a hat and dirty clothes. No one’s looking for a dude with My Little Pony on his head.
  • Big Daddy – that greasy bag of leftover Harry Clearwater Fish Fry from Twilight. I don’t even care if it’s a little moldy. That stuff looked good, it’s the whole reason I made Taylor bulk up and do the 2nd movie so I could have a chance at that famous fish fry.
  • David Slade – “The step ladder from props”
  • Solomon Trimble – “The name of that gaffer he met on set who worked part time at Subway. Solomon Trimble, Sandwich Artist. Has a nice ring to it, doesn’t it?”
  • Billy Burke – “Charlie handcuffs. Heh… heh… you know why.”
  • Cathi Hardi - (said in the most creepy Cathi voice you can imagine) “That audition tape of Rob and Kristen from my bedroom where they kiss and we really see their hot, hot chemistry… OH WAIT I already have that! HA! Just thought I’d say it again in a national publication, it’s been at least a week since I last talked about it.”

I’ll trade you, Esme’s bracelet for 5 lbs

  • Mike Welch – “I’m actually trying to lose something I gained from the set. Those 5 extra pounds around my face. Maybe I can give them to Christian Serratos, she needs some meat on her chicken bones.”

So as much as we love the main characters, can we not forget about the little people? The actors and people who REALLY made Twilight what it is today? Do we have to continue to blog for year about the genius of Eric Yorkie till someone like your magazine will know what we care what they’d steal from a set? Who cares from Rob or Taylor have to say about the inner works of their characters or who Kristen draws inspiration from. Give us crap answers from the folks that really matter.

Stealing the keys to Rob’s trailer,
Themoonisdown

What would you take from the set if you could? What would Buttcrack Santa take? Any other minor characters we need to know about?
