One in the "Best Book of 2008" about Stephenie Meyer:
Forget about boy wizards - in '08 Stephenie Meyer's vampires ruled
It's been "very surreal," says the author, whose bestselling Twilight quartet was the year's must-read even before the movie it spawned became a hit. "When I first sat down to write Twilight, it was just a story I enjoyed telling myself that nobody was ever supposed to see." Next up? "Getting back to what I love the most: writing."
Then, during "A Look Back at the Year's Hottest Celebs," there was a little thing about Rob:
Sexiest Undead Alive
As the novel Twilight made its way to the big screen, people wondered how Robert Pattinson, 22, would live up to the romantic ideal of vampire Edward Cullen. Turns out, maybe too well. Pattinson, while promoting the $150 million-grossing blockbuster, said he had a weird experience in New York: "One little girl looked at me and said, 'Can you bite me?'"
Nothing new, but still thought I'd share. Once I scan the pictures, I'll add them.

"Now I can hear what you say, and then maybe respond intelligently," the 21-year-old beauty laughed, comparing the red carpet to the last time we saw her, at the "Twilight" premiere.
Looking forward to the upcoming sequel, she said she was "very excited. Alice, [my] character, is a lot bigger and a lot heavier in the second one, so obviously I'm looking forward to that. And hopefully we'll go to Europe to film.
"I want to drive the yellow Porsche, really bad — in Europe," she giggled, citing the "New Moon" moment she's most eager to film. "That's what I'm most excited about now. I keep saying I hope they let me drive it, because on the first 'Twilight' we wanted to do our own stunts, and they let us do everything we realistically could. So, I'm hoping if I learn how to drive stick-shift, they'll let me drive the Porsche."
Greene also addressed the recent controversy surrounding Chris Weitz replacing Catherine Hardwicke as the series' director. "I'm sad to see Catherine go, but I think Chris is going to do a really great job," said the star. "I'm excited to work with him, because obviously he's worked with CGI before, and he's very familiar with it. It'll be good. We all knew [Catherine leaving] was a possibility, and I respect the fact that she said, 'Hey, I want more prep time. Maybe I wouldn't do the best job,' and that she gave someone else her place. That's what we do; that's our job. We work with different, great people every day."
Greene also offered her support for Lautner, who is meeting with Weitz on Friday to determine whether or not the young star will continue playing Jacob Black. "I hope so," she said, bringing her hands together in prayer. "We all love Taylor. He's the best kid. He's so adorable and so good-hearted, and he's a good actor too. He did a great job, so I'm hoping to see him come back."
Ever since Lautner landed the "Twilight" gig, claiming that he could play the character throughout Jacob's supernatural maturation, some have insisted he isn't physically appropriate, an argument that Greene doesn't understand. "Oh, neither am I! I mean, really?" laughed Greene, who dealt with a backlash herself after being cast as the 4-foot-10 Alice Cullen. "If that's the argument, then they should replace me.
"I love him to death, and he'll grow; I know he's working out like crazy to try to bulk up," she said of Lautner. "I think there are a lot of people [in 'Twilight'] who don't necessarily physically fit their part. So I'm hoping we keep him."
The actress — whose career has soared to the point that she wrapped one film this week and began another the very next day — added that she's eagerly waiting for the inch "New Moon" script by Melissa Rosenberg to arrive on her doorstep.
"I haven't [read the script]. Apparently, it's under tight wraps," she grinned. "I'm sure Rob [Pattinson] has, but [not me]. No, I haven't gotten to see it yet."
Greene said she doesn't agree with the argument that the "Twilight" films should be overseen by only female directors. "I don't, necessarily. Chris put out a statement that I thought was very sweet, talking about how excited he is about the books. He read them and spoke with Stephenie, and he definitely wants to do them justice," she explained. "Stephenie also released a statement saying she'd spoken with him. And with the two of them working together, because I'm sure Stephenie will be around a lot, I think he's going to do a great job. And like I said before, he did 'The Golden Compass,' so he's definitely familiar with the kind of film we're doing, as far as the technicality of the stunts and the CGI."
Before entering the party, Ashley also cautioned that fans shouldn't be sad that "New Moon" would force her to chop off her beautiful hair, revealing that much of Alice's pixie hairdo is movie magic. "I cut it to here," she said, holding her hand at her shoulder. "You didn't know they wigged me? That's good; that means it looks good. They wigged me for the first one, and I joked, 'Maybe I should just cut my hair off for the second one.' And they said, 'No, we'd still have to wig you, and we'd kill you on top of it!' I'll probably chop it down to my shoulders again, which I hate doing, but for this I don't mind."

There's been all this madness following you in America on the promotional tour for Twilight. Did you find that easy or hard to deal with?
I'm really not good at it. Some people are great at it. It's like the other side of the job. I can't believe I have to do it. It makes it easier because I'm really proud of the movie and I'm a fan of the book as well. So it's weird to see people mainly my age flipping out over Rob [Pattinson] walking into the room. He shifts in his seat and they all just go crazy. It's a little daunting.
How do you deal with that? Do you take the mickey out of Robert all the time for the reaction he gets?
Oh my god. All the time. Constantly. It's like, 'Rob. Touch your hair again'.
Your first scene together is almost quite comical. Robert Pattinson almost looks pained trying to control his feelings for you. Did that make you laugh?
It's so funny. We thought we were being so intense and serious. We watched the film and everyone was laughing. It was like, 'Oh my god. This is actually quite funny'. We didn't picture it like that at all.
Your character, Bella Swan, is very intense when she first arrives and very moody. How did you get into character?
Yeah. She's sort of happy being solitary. She doesn't intentionally try to push people away. I think sometimes when you're quiet and shy, you just come across pensive. I can fully relate to that. People are always asking me what's wrong and I'm like, 'Wow. Nothing. Absolutely nothing is wrong'. It's weird.
Title: Sleeping to Dream
Characters/Pairings: BxE, everyone is canon
Short summary:The newspapers say it all: Bella Swan is dead. But no one is sure why she jumped from the cliffs at First Beach. No one really knows why her body wasn't ever found. But everyone knows her coffin is empty and that the Cullens are back.
Any warnings: Je ne pense pas.
Note: Takes place after Bella jumps in New Moon and then set in an AU.

Robert Pattinson knows how Tom Cruise feels
Friday, 19 December 2008
Tom told Bnet: "With this role, I remember being so surprised by the controversy and thinking, What the hell is this? I remember being very hurt, actually.
"But my whole life there have been those who have told me I can't do this or that. You know, "You're going to fail. Why are you trying to do it?" When I wanted to become an actor, they'd say, "What are you doing with your life?"
"When I was offered the role of Lestat, I said, "My God, it's a fantastic role. It's a fantastic movie. I want to work with Neil Jordan." The thing is that I love acting, pushing myself, and exploring."
Some wanted Joe Jonas, others wanted Chace Crawford or Henry Cavill.
Robert has since proved that he can handle the role of Edward Cullen and now has the backing of millions of Twilight fans.
wow...being compared to tom cruise? that's huge! considering how good an actor tom cruise is (good thing it's only movies they have in common =X)
Charles is a man who has been hit in the face with a frying pan.

Talking about misconceptions..
"I said in an interview when I was a little kid, like for Panic Room or something, umm i must've gone surfing with my bro- my brothers surf. And like the week before i must've gone, "So what do you like to do?", "Umm i dunno i went surfing last week, that was fun.","She's a professional surfer!" It's like... umm.... so no I'm not a surfer, at all. I get like sea sick on a surfboard"
Woohoo! My first post!... hopefully it goes through (this time) *cross fingers*

Hurrah! Tomorrow vampire-flick-of-joy Twilight finally hits our cinemas - fangs god for that (sorry. It's Thursday. We're tired. And possibly a bit partied out). Anyway, Grazia's been lucky enough to see it already (nuh-nuh-nuh-nuh-nuh) and we can tell you it is FAB. Well, other than the few moments where they're trying to explain the ‘Ohh you're a vampire' plot line in a way that's a little reminiscent of The OC, post-Marissa years.
So to celebrate the fact Twilight's arrived for all, here are our favourite facts about the delicious Robert Pattinson, our new boy crush, who plays vamp Edward Cullen in the film. Memorise these and they'll help you wow any under-15s in your family this Christmas (always a tricky crowd to please).
1. Apparently the fashion trend that confuses Robert most is Ugg boots. However, Cinnamon Toast Crunch is his breakfast cereal of choice. This is totally unrelated, but just in case you're interested, he hails from Barnes.
