Robert Pattinson compares having a baby to having a puppy
Robert Pattinson compares having a baby to having a puppy

Robert Pattinson is set to appear on the big screen as a father in the final Twilight movie, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2. Robert has claimed that nobody really knows how to be a parent from the word go but admitted that it was easy in Twilight as it was much like looking after a puppy.

Pattinson explained to the Daily Mirror, “It is the ultimate fantasy, I guess, to some people, that you can avoid all the annoying parts of having a kid, if they are already fending for themselves. It is like having a puppy. Just leave it alone and thank you very much.”
 
He added, “No one really knows how to be a father when you first begin - there is no way to prepare for it, and it is very easy to react to holding a baby, especially when the baby is looking like a newborn and you have just delivered it - it is very simple, as it is just crying in your hands, so you end up being very careful with it and stuff.”
 
Robert Pattinson will reprise his role as Edward Cullen for the final time when the last Twilight movie hits the big screen later this month. The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 will be released in the US and the UK on November 16.

Twilight star Robert Pattinson has revealed that he knows his parents understand the pressure he feels as a heartthrob movie star.

Robert admitted that when he phones home and tells his parents that he wants to end his own life, they know he’s just being a bit dramatic.

Robert, 25, said that he gets very frustrated on long film shoots and that he needs someone to vent to: ‘They think I’m insane,’ says Robert.

‘They are the only people I really let rip on - “I’m going to kill myself!” My family all think I hate my job so much, but it’s just the boredom that gets to you.’

Robert, who stars as manipulative playboy Georges Duroy in Bel Ami - a role which he says has changed his life - admits that he enjoys the acting side of his career, but that he gets depressed when he’s forced to stay indoors to avoid being followed by fans and paparazzi.

‘I do everything to hide because, if someone finds out where I am, there are people outside 24 hours a day,’ Robert tells The Sunday Times Culture.

‘And that’s what drives you crazy, because you can’t escape. It makes you not want to go out - then you don’t meet anyone and just get insanely bored.’

Twilight star Robert Pattinson is set to break the hearts of thousands of Twihard fans after stating that The Hunger Games has replaced Twilight as the top teen flick.

The hunky actor, who plays vampire Edward Cullen in the hugely popular series, has admitted he feels people are already losing interest in the vampire movies following the popularity of Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson's movie, The Hunger Games. This is despite the final Twilight installment, Breaking Dawn - Part 2, not having been released yet.

Speaking to Telegrama magazine, R-Pattz confessed: “I feel like the frenzy is starting to die down. We step into the era of The Hunger Games, the world wants fresh meat!”

The 26-year old, who is dating co-star Kristen Stewart, has already shot his final scenes as Edward Cullen in Canada, marking the end of his Twilight Saga journey, which has shot Robert, somewhat begrudgingly, to superstardom.

Despite the end of Twilight drawing ever closer, Rob went on to add that he is looking forward to revisiting the franchise for the final time. He stated: “I’m curious to reunite with this universe for the last time, to see the effect it will have on me and on the audience.”

Earlier this week, Kristen revealed that she would love to work with her beau again, telling Celebuzz: “I’m dying to make another movie with Rob. I think that we’re a good team.”                       

Kristen Stewart reveals she thinks Twilight sex scene could have been noisier
Kristen Stewart reveals she thinks Twilight sex scene could have been noisier

Kristen Stewart has revealed that she can’t understand why the sounds she made during her Twilight sex scene were drowned out by music.

The actress, who plays Bella in the popular vampire franchise, is dating co-star Robert Pattison in real life, too. In The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1, Bella marries vampire Edward. The honeymoon love scenes had to be shot sensitively, as the movies have a huge teenage following.

Although Kristen understands the sequence couldn’t be too graphic, she wishes it had been sexier.

Kristen told chat show host Graham Norton: “It is a bit full on, but it’s edited. I see scenes and think, ‘Why is music playing over that? I was definitely making sounds and it could be so sexy and it’s not. The ratings board breaks it down so technically and apparently thrusting is a huge problem for the children.”

Kristen was on the TV show to promote her latest movie Snow White and the Huntsman, in which she plays the title heroine role. Lily Collins recently starred in another Snow White film, but Kristen insists there was no rivalry between the pair.

“I’m actually really, really good friends with Lily and we found out we were in the movies around the same time and I promise we didn’t want to kill each other,” she explained. “It really wasn’t a big deal. People try and pit us against each other, but I really like her - she’s funny.”

Meanwhile, images from Robert’s new movie Cosmopolis have been released. The racy pictures show the British hunk in a surreal scene where he has apparently had a threesome with himself and a pregnant brunette woman. There is also a shot of him slumped over a couch with a deep wound in his stomach.

He recently revealed that playing a womanising banker in the David Cronenberg-directed picture had given him a confidence boost: “Filming Cosmopolis with David changed something in me. It gave me balls,” he explained to Premiere magazine. “I have five projects lined up right now that follow the path that movie opened for me. Before, I spent my time doubting myself. As soon as I read a script I liked, I was working myself up, asking myself if I was good enough. Now, I tell myself, ‘F**k it! If they want to hire you, go!’”

Richest Celeb Couples include Beyonce & Jay-Z, Brad Pitt & Angelina, and Robert Pattinson & Kristen Stewart
Richest Celeb Couples include Beyonce & Jay-Z, Brad Pitt & Angelina, and Robert Pattinson & Kristen Stewart

These celebrities are millionaires in their own rights, but when you throw two together, you get an unstoppable - not to mention super rich - force.

Coming first in the ranking - and somewhat suprisingly - is the powerful duo formed by supermodel Gisele Bundchen and NFL superstar Tom Brady. Gisele is well on the road to becoming the world’s first billionaire supermodel, as she recently pocketed a massive $45 million over a 12-month period. Not to be overshadowed by his more famous wife, Tom  – who signed a four-year, $72 million contract extension in September with the New England Patriots, NFL’s richest deal on an annual basis – brought home another $31 million, putting the couple’s combined annual earnings at $76 million.

Music’s most powerful couple, Beyonce Knowles and Jay-Z hauled in some $72 million over the past year, making them number 2 on the list.  Beyonce earned an estimated $35 million in a twelve month period, thanks mostly to business-focused deals such as a clothing line with Dereon and endorsement deals with L’Oreal, DirecTV, General Mills and others. As for Jay-Z, his earnings come from the 10-year $150 million Live Nation deal that he signed in 2008, and the cash he collects as a shareholder in New Jersey Nets, 40/40 Club chain and ad firm Translation.

Hollywood royalty Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt came in third place on our list, but the first appearance of an acting duo, with a combined $50 million annual income. The highest-paid actress in the world is the only woman making bank for playing action heroes in Tinseltown these days: Salt, which was originally written for Tom Cruise, earned $300 million at the box office. Her other movie from last year, The Tourist, made another $280 million worldwide. As a result, Angelina pocketed around $30 million last year, while her soon-to-be husband, Brad Pitt, cashed in some $20 million. With his Plan B production company, Brad has become as active a producer as he is an actor.

Apart from the fact that he is yet to popularize soccer in America, David Beckham, along with his former Spice Girl wife Victoria, are the world’s fourth Highest-Paid Celebrity couple, with combined earnings of $45 million between May 2010 and May 2011. David’s pitch prowess has declined in recent years as the 36-year-old’s career winds down, but he still collects big endorsement checks from companies like Adidas and, more recently, Samsung, for which he will be the global brand ambassador during the 2012 Olympic Games in London. His pay check last year: $40 million. Victoria is responsible for the other $5 million from the couple’s annual income, thanks to the percentage of sales that she collects from her fashion lines, a figure which is set to soar this year.

Coming last, but not least, is Twilight’s Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart, who have both earned $20 million last year thanks to the franchise’s global success, making their combined annual salary $40 million. With the end of the Twilight franchise in sight, they both are preparing for a post-vampire career. Robert has taken the lead in more “serious” projects, like Remember Me, which earned $56 million on a budget of $16 million. In the meantime, Kristens’s non-Twilight career hasn’t been as promising as her co-star and real-life boyfriend’s so far. Her 2010 film The Runaways grossed only $4.6 million at the box office. But there’s still hope for Kristen as she can soon be seen in cinemas playing the leading role in the film Snow White and the Huntsman.

Twilight stars Robert Pattinson & Kristen Stewart not so loved up?
Twilight stars Robert Pattinson & Kristen Stewart not so loved up?

They are dating off screen as well as playing husband and wife in the upcoming Twilight Saga movie, so it’s suprising that Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson would need to re-shoot any of their love scenes in Breaking Dawn Part 2.

But the couple were back in Vancouver today, where filming for the movie takes place, to go over some technical work for their highly anticipated motion picture.

Even though they are thought to have been in a relationship for years, the pair refused to be seen together as they arrived in Vancouver today. The couple are notoriously private about their relationship, so the two main stars of the vampire tale walked through the Canadian airport separately and tried not to draw any attention to themselves by going solo on their travels.

However with a posse of burly minders, the duo were highly noticeable as Kristen, 22, surrounded herself with a security team.

She hardly looked like a star as she dressed down in a casual outfit of black skinny jeans, and a green jacket with tartan lining. The brunette teamed her Nike trainers with plain white T-shirt which she tied at the side to reveal a glimpse of the flesh on her flat stomach.

Robert, 25, afforded himself no company as he lugged the couple’s bags around and layered up with baseball cap, and several tops. The stars headed to the city from Washington D.C where the shy twosome went unnoticed at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner.

Books to movies and the actors who are cast
Books to movies and the actors who are cast

Right, I’m sick to death of people complaining about who gets cast as their favourite character when a book gets adapted into a big screen blockbuster. There is always somebody complaining that this person is not right or that person is not right and it drives me crazy.

The only that this could ever be stopped is if everybody had the same imagination and saw each and every character in the same way as everybody else. But if everybody had the same imagination, what would be the point in reading the book in the first place.
 
We had it with Twilight, now it’s happening again with The Hunger Games and it is bound to happen again in the future. What people don’t understand, is that the actors or actresses that they suggest should have played the character instead, would then annoy somebody else, who does not agree with their opinion of who should play the character.
 
People need to stop getting too involved in who the actor or actress is and just enjoy the movie. After all, it is a movie BASED on a book, there will always be differences. If you are going to complain about it, don’t go and watch it. Rant over. Arriba!!
Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart to star in new movie together
Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart to star in new movie together

It has been reported that Twilight love birds, Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart, are set to star alongside each other once again, in a new movie together. Robert and Kristen will appear alongside each other in the final Twilight movie later this year, before filming a new movie together early next year.

The movie is currently an untitled project and, as well as Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson being signed up to the cast, the film will be directed by David Fincher (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo). It is expected that the movie will be released late next year or early 2014.
 
Not a lot is known about the project but it is believed that Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart will be playing arch enemies in the film, a stark contrast to their previous work together. There are also said to be a few fight scenes involving the two real life lovers.
 
It will be interesting to see whether filming a movie as enemies will have a negative effect on their relationship or if it will bring Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart closer together. We will just have to wait and see.

Taylor Lautner to play fat man in new movie
Taylor Lautner to play fat man in new movie

Twilight actor Taylor Lautner is renowned for his chiselled abs and constantly taking his top off in his movies to reveal his perfect body. However, it appears that all of that is set to change, as Taylor Lautner prepares for the role of a fat man in his next movie.

It has been reported that Taylor Lautner will need to put on around 30lbs for his new role and will not be allowed to work out, so that he gets himself in the required shape for the role.
 
It is claimed that a fat suit was offered as an alternative option but Taylor is so dedicated to his art, that he wanted it to look as real as possible, so chose to put the weight on. It shows just how seriously Taylor Lautner is taking his career, now that the Twilight movies are finished.
 
Taylor Lautner will be playing a fat killer butcher, who chops up the bodies of his victims and stores them in his meat freezer, in the Guy Ritchie directed English movie. It is also believed that Taylor will have to put on an English accent for the role. Now that is dedication to the art of acting.

Liam Hemsworth the new Robert Pattinson
Liam Hemsworth the new Robert Pattinson

It seems strange that many people are comparing Liam Hemsworth to Robert Pattinson. Where do these comparisons come from? Is it because they are both foreign men making a name for themselves in a big movie franchise?

Robert Pattinson was the lead male character in the Twilight movies but Josh Hutcherson is the lead male character in The Hunger Games. If anything, surely Liam Hemsworth should be getting compared to Taylor Lautner, as they both play a similar sort of role in their respective movies.
 
However, it does not matter what we say, as everybody is already making the comparisons between Liam Hemsworth and Robert Pattinson and have even questioned the Aussie about the Brit. Liam responded, “Oh, I don’t know. He’s uh… I don’t know. I have no idea.”
 
He added, “I hope [I’m ready]… I’m trying to be. At the moment, I’m just enjoying the ride. It’s very exciting meeting so [many] passionate fans. I’m very fortunate to be a part of it.” The Hunger Games opened worldwide last week and has made an incredible $215m plus at the box office.
 
Do you think Liam Hemsworth is the new Robert Pattinson?
The Hunger Games doubles its money
The Hunger Games doubles its money

The Hunger Games movie was made on a huge budget of $100m but after its opening weekend at the box office, that figure seems small. The Hunger Games more than  doubled that amount since it opened, with a worldwide gross of over $210m.

It is fantastic news for everybody involved in the movie and even Lionsgate themselves could not have predicted such a huge income. The Hunger Games becomes the third biggest opening weekend of all time in the US, where it managed to rake in $155m. That gross is also the highest ever non sequel movie and highest ever non summer movie.
 
With those sorts of figures, The Hunger Games sits behind only Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows: Part 2 and The Dark Knight, having beaten the likes of Twilight and Spider-Man. With that said, it is now a certainty that The Hunger Games sequels, Catching Fire and Mockingjay, will be made into big screen hits.
 
It would also not be surprising if both of The Hunger Games sequels went on to make even more money than The Hunger Games has. With the rate The Hunger Games is bringing in money, it will surely not be long before it hits the $1b mark.
 
Have you seen The Hunger Games? What did you think of it?
Taylor Lautner 2012 
Taylor Lautner 2012 

20 year old Twilight actor Taylor Lautner has pretty much been living off of the fact that he has appeared as Jacob Black in all of the Twilight movies and has not really done too much else. To be fair though, after last years Abduction, where he starred alongside Lily Collins, who can blame him.

Anyway, it appears that Taylor Lautner will be doing the same thing in 2012. In fact, Taylor Lautner’s 2012 will be even less busy that previous years, as he does not have a back up movie to promote or work on. So, Taylor will be living off of Twilight again this year.
 
Of course, Taylor Lautner will not be able to sit around doing nothing all year long, as the final instalment of the Twilight saga hits the big screen later this year. So, Taylor Lautner will have to once again team up with Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart to promote The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2, which is released in November.
 
So far, that is all that Taylor Lautner’s 2012 has install for him. However, it is still early in 2012 and there is still time for Taylor Lautner to find a part in some other movies. Unfortunately though, his acting ability is lacking and there are only so many movies where you can take your top off.
 
Who is looking forward to seeing what Taylor Lautner does post Twilight?
