Last night’s MTV Movie Awards delivered something for everyone. That is, if everyone loved Twilight. The third film in the vampire franchise walked away with five golden bags of popcorn, including the prize for Best Movie. Alas, The King’s Speech — and it’s mature cheering section — went home emptyhanded. For an entire list of winners, click below: READ FULL STORY

It’s clear that the stars of The Twilight Saga have become close over the years — particularly during the long process of shooting Breaking Dawn Part 1 and Part 2 (in theaters November 2011 and 2012). “Having to spend so much time with people…it’s just nice when you like them. There is a real bond. I think also there’s something humbling about wearing the makeup and contacts,” says Robert Pattinson.
But of course all that bonding doesn’t stop him from teasing one of his co-stars. “Except Taylor [Lautner]–he doesn’t have to do a thing. He’s managed [to do] no work on this last one,” Pattinson laughs. “He’s always a wolf!” However, as Pattinson is quick to point out, Lautner will face plenty of challenges when it comes to Breaking Dawn Part 2 (beware, spoilers ahead!). “He has to fall in love with a baby,” Pattinson says (kinda gleefully). “Oh, God, I can’t wait to see how that goes.”
Lautner doesn’t seem too surprised to hear about Pattinson’s ribbing. “Oh my gosh. That sounds like him,” he says. “Everyone is always complaining to me that I don’t have to wear the contacts, I don’t have to wear the white makeup or wear wigs and all that stuff. And I’m like, ‘I’m the one in the freezing rain and cold not wearing a shirt! I paid my dues in New Moon and Eclipse.’”
For more behind-the-scenes details on Breaking Dawn, plus exclusive photos — including one of Bella and Edward in a steamy waterfall embrace — pick up the new issue of Entertainment Weekly, on stands now.
Next month, Robert Pattinson will finish filming Breaking Dawn parts 1 and 2, the final installments of The Twilight Saga (in theaters November 2011 and November 2012). And he says it’s been a long time coming: “I literally feel like we’ve been doing it my whole life,” he laughs during his sit-down interview with EW last week.
Breaking Dawn, as anyone who has read Stephenie Meyer’s best-selling book can tell you, poses a lot of challenges for the big screen — not the least of which involves the very bloody and graphic scene with a half-vampire baby (with teeth!). “There’s some interesting and weird stuff going on — really very, very, very strange.

We now know that Jennifer Lawrence will play Katniss Everdeen, but all the fan anticipation and hand-wringing over who would/should/could be cast in Suzanne Collins’s The Hunger Games might remind you of a time way back when (or, 2008) when there was a similar frenzy over the casting of Twilight. When EW recently sat down with Robert Pattinson, we asked the 24-year-old actor if he was familiar with the YA world’s latest obsession.
“I sort of came across it last year, and I didn’t realize it was the most enormous thing in the year,” says Pattinson. “It’s good! It will be a good movie.” As to whether or not he’d ever consider acting in another big franchise, Pattinson says he would. “But I’d want to have more input. The only horrible thing about being part of a franchise…well, not horrible…no, it is horrible…is that the bigger and bigger you get, it’s quite difficult to break out of stuff. When you’ve been playing the same part, you can’t suddenly start playing it differently. It takes away a little bit of the creative kind of … urge.”
Another new trailer for Water for Elephants has hit and the big guns are out: Mainly, a glimpse of at least one forbidden sex scene between veterinarian Robert Pattinson and married, abused circus performer Reese Witherspoon. Watching it, I have to say I’m excited for Pattinson, who gets to show a far wider range of emotions than he does in the Twilight movies or Remember Me. He looks up to the challenge, even if his breathy voice at one point (“You’re a beautiful woman… “) sounds a little Brando to me. READ FULL STORY
Red Riding Hood director Catherine Hardwicke has certainly proven she knows how to cast a movie. (Would Twilight have been the same if she hadn’t nabbed Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson?) Now, in an EW interview, the director unveils some of her casting secrets. “Starting with Thirteen, my known technique is to cast the lead, then find someone with whom they have incredible chemistry,” Hardwicke tells EW. “Like Nikki Reed and Evan Rachel Wood. Same with Rob and Kristen. The same was true with [Red Riding Hood star] Amanda [Seyfried]. I wanted her to be on fire with the person.”
So, for Seyfried’s romantic interest in Red Riding Hood, Hardwicke called in what she labels the “80 hottest guys from around the world” — and narrowed them down to eight. READ FULL STORY
