Well, we’re back with some REAL QUICK thoughts over on That’s Normal about the BIG 2014 TWILIGHT NEWS. Oh you don’t know what we’re talking about? Nikki Reed and Paul McDonald are getting divorced you guys.
CUE STRING VERSION OF THEIR BREAKING DAWN PART TWO DUET.
no really, We cue it, embed it & so much more over on That’s Normal today. So you need to read.
We miss you guys like, WHOA. It was fun to be “UC and Moon” again for a hot minute.
In continuing with our recap of our #RIPTwilight week together (and more specifically the Breaking Dawn Part 2 premiere) we wanted to share a few videos from some of our FAVORITE cast members.
We all know we love the Cullens– I mean Hello Rob yum yum forever. Jackson is WORKING it these days with 100 Monkeys and terrible outfits & hats out of his system. Even though I’m not into the big muscular type, Kellan’s personality makes up for any d-baggery and you have to love a guy who admits to reading The Purpose Driven Life. And Peter Fach is like the world’s best dad.
That’s established. But our favorite cast members as of late have been the newbies. Maybe it’s because they’re active on Twitter & we get to see their personalities. Maybe it’s because we’ve met them in person and shared a meal and some drinks (and they EAT unlike some Cullen girls who I assume do NOT) or maybe it’s just because they’re all-around good people and they deserve to be on our favorite list. Either way, here they are:
We know, you’re busy. No time to watch videos. You have time for these! Trust!
Oh Erik, we called you Z-list last year and you read it (and remember it since you mentioned it to us recently) and yet you still talk to us. We weren’t sure what was going on with your jacket at the premiere this year, but it sure was interesting to touch. And we love you because you aren’t afraid to share your deep knowledge of all things Hobby-Lobby. Plus you treat us like we’re not fans (WE AREN’T. WE’RE NORMAL PEOPLE) and your Grandma posts cute things to your Facebook wall:
Could this girl be ANY cuter? First she ends tweets with “Beep Beep” (last name is Trucks. It took me a few days to figure that one out. So smart) and then she’s the most real, down-to-earth actress I’ve ever met. Someone give this girl a sitcom. Or a role on Downton Abbey:
JD is a new addition in 2012 to the “yum” list. Plus he’s on one of our fav new Fall TV shows (Revolution) and is pretty great! From what we can tell in the storyline, they’re making his role even more important, so I think he’ll be around for awhile. We have a joke with JD about visiting Wilmington, NC that comes up every time we see him (listen to the beginning of the interview & you’ll hear it) Plus we will one day do shots together. If we do shots together IN Wilmington I’m pretty sure the world will explode. Or at least the lights will go out (Revolution joke, holllaaaa):
I’ve never done red carpet interviews for any other fandoms, but I can’t imagine they are all as great as the Twilight black carpets. The actors & people involved are great to talk to– even when they get to us at the end after they’ve talk to HUNDREDS of others. I know it’s their JOB and some people are better at it than others, but we’ve had such a great experience with most cast members, especially our new favorite vamps! Oh, 1 of them is a 1/2 vamp if you want me to be technical (SPOILER ALERT)
Hope you love them as much as we do!!!
UC & Moon
Who is your favorite random Twi cast member? Don’t say Rob!
That’s right- this is Part 1 of 2 of our EPIC story from our amazing #RIPTwilight week together. We wish more than anything we could have taken you with us, shrunk you down a little bit and carried you in our pockets on every adventure we had together. You’d be pocket-sized LTTers. We’d even let each of you have a moment alone with Pocket Edward in our purses if that’s your thing. Some of you could even choose Pocket Bella and we wouldn’t even bat an eye. But alas most of you weren’t there with us and so we’ll do our best to share every detail we can so it feels like you were!
I (UC) flew into LA on Friday evening. After big hugs with some of the OG LTTers we had dinner & headed on over to Tent City to catch up on what was going down there.
Turns out not much. They were watching New Moon on the Big Screen at LA Live & as if God was welcoming us there the scene that was playing as we walked through security was the one when Kristen says “They’re NOT Bears!”
I found a sign that was begging to be leg-hitched
This sign was amazing:
And all the ROBSTEN signs:
It was basically a 2nd-hand embarrassment dream come true.
Then a HERD of Twilight fans went running because they heard a rumor that a Twi-cast member MAYBE was there. There was no cast member, and if herds like that happened often during the weekend I’m SHOCKED no one was killed. Angry/cold/Annoyed Twilight fans should be AVOIDED AT ALL COSTS. (of course none of the amazing “camping” LTTers were ever angry/cold/annoyed*)
On Saturday we headed back to tent city for the concert for the campers. A few people from the soundtrack performed like: A boy and his kite (Great song!), Anya Marina (YEP. HER), Paul McDonald and Rosalie Hale (I mean Nikki Reed) and Christina Perri.
Jackson MC’d and if you remember us complaining about how TERRIBLE Charlie Bewley did last year, you’ll know this a good thing. There is a DEF a career for Jackson hosting a show like “America’s Funniest Home Videos” if this acting thing doesn’t work out. He did a great job.
Eventually Ashley Greene joined him and they were all cute Alice-and-Jaspery together:
Christina was my favorite because she is a major Twi-hard. She was wearing this pretty red jacket while singing her first song (or two)
and then right before she sang the song that brings us ALL to tears (especially if you’ve seen BD part 2 already!) “A Thousand Years” she took off her jacket and revealed a Twilight T-shirt like the huge Twi-dork she is:
ALSO she apparently has A Twilight tattoo that says “bitten” on her wrist. Way to keep it classy Christina!
Apparently this was Nikki Reed’s first time performing in public, something she said over and over again. Then she cried. AND had to sit while singing and everyone was soooo sympathetic. She sang. She did fine. Then she sang with her husband and at the end they shared a mic and we threw up in our mouths a little bit.
Sidenote: I think Nikki Reed is genuinely grateful for her Twilight experience & how her life has changed as a result. But she says it so often and with SO MUCH EMOTION that it seems fake. Also we liked her jacket. End Sidenote.
During the concert we saw the most EPIC Buttcrack of all time. I have picture proof and everything but…. for reasons I cannot discuss I cannot post it. But it’s like Buttcrack Santa sent us a gift in his absence. Imagine a chilly California day. You’re in California so you expect it to be warm so you’re not dressed appropriately. Then imagine your buttcrack showing SO much and somehow you DON’T notice despite the cold day and the inappropriate-for-the-weather clothing. Seems impossible, right? WRONG. It was possible. I saw it with my own two eyes. Buttcrack Santa gifted us this.
Then the BIG SURPRISE was revealed when Stephenie Meyer came on stage to talk to the fans (as much as a “BIG SURPRISE” can be when you notice a huge-ass card on the side of the stage that says “DEAR STEPHENIE” in big letters inside…. I don’t know who else noticed, but I kinda figured that was coming!) She said some sweet stuff and then ran the hardest Twilight trivia of all time- which people actually PASSED. And those who got correct answers got to dine with her that evening. Pretty fun idea & I am either the worst or best Twilight fan for not knowing the answers. I’m not sure. (but I think best…)
“What was I wearing to bed the night I dreamed of Edward Cullen?”
Move over Taylor and Kristen, there’s a new trinity in town… aka these are the videos UC chose to edit first.
Rob, Mike Welch (ROOOBBB!!) and Melissa Rosenberg. Yup, UC must have a thing for Mike Welch and Melly Rosenberg because she totally overlooked people like Jackson Rathbone and Kellan Lutz for… MIKE.WELCH. Yea, I don’t know either y’all but considering last year’s Mike Welch moment I’m surprised he even gave us a second chance much less played along with our dumb game. Whatta sport that guy!
Mike Welch. Yea, we totally asked him to act the fool and he was more than willing. And yes, this Arizona girl is likin’ da rain. .
And then Melissa Rosenberg became just like our favorite step-aunt in this video. .
And well there’s really no need for introduction to this ROBERT PATTINSON video because there are no words necessary because as you all know, this has never happened before. Special hugs to Matt and Ryan for hooking us up. WAAAAY up.
We’re sorry Taylor and Kristen but I’m sure you understand… you never would have delivered famous Twilight movie lines in Mike Welch’s voice or introduced us to your husband or told us you had to pee. So as you can see it had to be done. You’ll understand someday, when you’re older.
Who else has moved up on our list of favorites? Who will be the new Big Daddy (we miss you!)? Who will be the next Buttcrack Santa? Only time and Goldfish Cracker-fueled midnight editing sessions will tell.
Rob is the new spokeswhore (TM Dlisted) for Dior Men’s Fragrances. I know, right??!?! I guess people think he smells like stuff other than stale cheetos and the inside of a second hand clothing shop. Shocking. So clearly, Rob needed a way to pay for his new pad since he dumped the old love nest (too many memories. And stains). So enter Christian Dior and their office full of Robsessed ladies and here we are: Robert Pattinson face of Men’s Dior Fragrances.
So I got to thinking if Rob’s the new face of these fragrances, what would they smell like? Well, have no fear people I’m here and I have a warped creative imagination!
Dior Italiano – It smells like a pizza rolled up and stuffed in a sweaty men’s Italian leather shoe, that’s been worn through a dirty puddle behind Ye Rustic Inn.
Dior Angeleno – It smells like an old gym sock worn to a PF Chang’s Rock N Roll Marathon after a trip to the dog park where it accidentally stepped in dog poop.
Dior Robbe – It smells like an ’86 BMW full of greasy old In-N-Out bags on fire in the number 4 lane on the 405 North.
Dior Unbroken – It smells like adolescent tears drying on a copy of “Forever” by Judy Blume loaned out from the public library.
In light of the recent Brad Pitt Chanel Fragrance commercials there is one thing for sure: I CAN’T WAIT to see the commercials/print ads Rob’ll do for Dior. We need Rob talking about scents, and men, and life and love and he has to use the word “essence” a lot. We’d also like him to look super hot. Come on Dior DON’T LET US DOWN!!!
