SOTL: Quid pro quo

Rob at LAX

Both wearing their fave ballcaps, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner make their way through LAX airport in Los Angeles on Saturday afternoon (May 1).

The duo headed up to Vancouver over the weekend to re-shoot a few scenes for the third film in the series, The Twilight Saga: Eclipse. Kristen Stewart and Dakota Fanning also joined the pair.

If you had never read the books...

discussion post;

Last night I rewatched bits of Twilight now that New Moon is fresh in my mind.  And I couldn't help but think that E/B's relationship got short shrift when compared to J/B's friendship in the movies.  Plus, I just don't think Edward and his motivation were explained very clearly.  It seems to be that in New Moon the J/B friendship was told with a lot more nuance and finesse than E/B's story in Twilight.  And it's too bad because in the book it was the exact opposite for me.  I felt so much depth with E/B than I ever did with J/B.  I can't stand J/B just because I love E/B so much.

So my question is, if you had never read ANY of the books and JUST saw the movies, what do you think your shipping preferences would be? If you had never read any of the books, would you still ship E/B?

Poll #1559295 If you have never read the books...

Would you still ship E/B?

Yes, definitely.
Yes, but not as strongly.
No, I probably would have been Team Swiss.
No, I probably would have shipped J/B to be honest.

Stephenie Meyer Talks About The ‘Breaking Dawn’ Book Cover And Possible Book Spin-Offs!

MTV Rough Cuts has 4 new videos with Twilight Saga author Stephenie Meyer explaining Breaking Dawn, and the possibility of more books!

“It represents Bella and Bella,” Stephenie spills. “This cover, one of the reasons why I love it and was so happy we finally came up with the concept, is that it’s the whole book series on one cover. Bella’s starts out as the weakest player on the board and she ends up as the one who decides the outcome of the story. She became the most powerful player, and I really liked that metaphor. I liked seeing her evolution in one picture.”

Breaking Dawn’s cover shows the weakest piece on a chess board – a pawn – and focuses on the strongest one, the queen. Although Bella’s character comes full circle, Stephenie still feels that other players in the Twilight saga have more to share. She confesses that Leah’s story doesn’t feel resolved to her and foresees future writing from Renesmee’s point-of-view.

“If I were to go ahead with the Cullen universe — and honestly I’ll do it for myself, whether I publish it or not is questionable at this point — but the narrators that I would go ahead with…would be Renesmee and Leah. Probably about the age of five, which would be about 16 or 17 for Renesmee.”

Look at the videos at this link


So, no Edward's point of view???? That's disappointing.....

Summary: The story of Bella's corruption -- "If only I made myself look beyond the illusive idea of changing my life around, I would've realized how incredibly naive that idea sounded. At some point, I was bound to find out that all previous lessons in life would prove to be futile, as I was never taught that no great change can come without a great sacrifice. I was destined to figure it out on my own--the hard way.!

It's not Edward's past, it's his present that puzzles Bella. What will happen when she figures it out?

Kristen Stewart — Fashion Designers Love Your Rock-Hip Chick Style!

Kristen Stewart’s endless love for plaid shirts and jeans might cause some people to criticize her fashion sense — but fashion designers Vera Wang and Derek Lam LOVE it! “She brings an element of sort of rock and hip, but not just because she’s on Twilight,” Vera told EXCLUSIVELY at the DKMS 4th Annual Gala at Cipriani in NYC on Apr. 29. “She brings that aura herself innately.

And Derek agrees! “Kristen reminds me of Elvis for some reason,” he told us. “She’s got that swagger. I think she’s a tom boy at heart, and I feel like it’s really about the simplest thing and she’s sexy without even trying.

When asked if she would like to chance to personally style Kristen, Vera said, “Yeah, I’d like to dress her for anything!” (Ya hear that, K-Stew? She’s waiting for your call!)

I think a lot of the actors in Hollywood like to down play in the day,” Vera continued. “It’s all about jeans and being groovy and t-shirts. [For Kristen] I think something very goth but kind of cool. She works that so well!

And if Derek had the choice for one stand-out accesory (especially for the summer) to see K-Stew sporting, it would be a bit ”bucket bag in color — something that works in the city and on the beach.”

“You can pack all of your stuff in it for the weekend and you're ready to go,” Derek explained. “A bright beautiful leather — It really works all year around. Color is very forgiving. Everybody thinks to go buy a black bag or a black pair of shoes, but a great color piece, you’ll have a whole new wardrobe!”

Despite what skeptics say, it sounds like K-Stew’s closet has it goin’ on! These two renowned designers wouldn’t change a thing about her style — but would you? Tell us what you think below & vote!

I'm looking forward to seeing what she wears tomorrow night!
