Even before she admitted to a “momentary indiscretion” with the married director of a movie she was starring in (the first time, incidentally, that such an indiscretion has ever taken place in the history of show business), Kristen Stewart was a lightning rod for haters. There are a number of reasons for that — I’ll get to those in a moment — but the most immediate reaction to Trampire-gate was, of course, an instant spike in the hatred. With this one sordid, seemingly out-of-character, unlucky-enough-to-be-photographed transgression, the normally wholesome, media-shy Stewart suddenly appeared to have committed three sins at once. On the most basic level of Tiger Beat soap opera, she betrayed her boyfriend and Twilight co-star and fellow teen idol Robert Pattinson, thus soiling their highly burnished romantic image. The affair was also a grenade tossed into the marriage of her Snow White and the Huntsman director, Rupert Sanders (who has to shoulder a lot of the blame — but that’s another story). And so, in the eyes of an increasingly nasty and judgmental horde of tabloid-gossip junkies, Stewart got to wear a scarlet ‘H’ for homewrecker. READ FULL STORY
Tag: Twilight (41-50 of 179)
Abe, meet James and Anna. Oh, and also Bella and Edward.
Lincoln, Steven Spielberg’s epic Civil War-era presidential portrait, will open in limited release on Nov. 9, the same weekend as Skyfall, Daniel Craig’s third outing as James Bond, and Anna Karenina, starring Keira Knightley as Tolstoy’s tragic heroine.
Twilight author Stephenie Meyer knows that even her most ardent fans haven’t always been sold on Renesmee. Not the character, of course — the half vampire, half human child of Edward and Bella who lies at the heart of the drama in Breaking Dawn 2 – but the name itself.
“I was lost in fantasy land,” she told EW shortly after the Breaking Dawn-Part 2 panel. READ FULL STORY
Now that it’s the last Twilight appearance at Comic-Con, Robert Pattinson told EW he realized he would like to come back someday and experience it as an attendee (in costume, of course). “I’d love it,” he says. “Maybe a Darth Vader mask or something.”
The question first came up at the Breaking Dawn –Part 2 panel when an audience member asked Pattinson and Stewart what villain they’d choose to dress up as if they came to Comic-Con for fun. Stewart, with a sly smile, said the Evil Queen — a nod to her co-star in Snow White and the Huntsman. Pattinson named Zod.
“I can’t believe I said Zod,” Pattinson said a couple of hours later, relaxing in a much-quieter-than-Hall-H hotel room. “He’s the bad guy from Superman II. I actually have no idea why I said him. I just remember, ‘Kneel before Zod‘. Now that’s been stuck in my head all day.” The actor estimates that he probably last saw Superman II when he was 9-years-old.
Twilight author Stephenie Meyer and director Andrew Niccol (Gattaca) visited EW.com’s Comic-Con video studio today to talk about the upcoming movie adaptation of her book The Host. READ FULL STORY

The Project: The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 2
The Panel: Taylor Lautner, Rob Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, Mackenzie Foy, Peter Facinelli, Elizabeth Reaser, Nikki Reed, Kellen Lutz, Ashley Greene, Jackson Rathbone
The Big Revelations: After a long wait, fans finally got to see Bella as a vampire! “I’ve been waiting too,” Stewart said later. “I love [Vampire Bella]. I think she’s the coolest one.”
Footage Screened: After a pre-taped intro from director Bill Condon (who couldn’t make it as he’s busy working on the score of the film), fans got to see the first seven minutes of Part 2. Highlights included Bella trying out her vampire strength and speed for the first time as well as taking down a mountain lion. The crowd went wild.
Snap Judgment: Fans are enthused! There’s a lot of humor and warmth that comes through these first few minutes and later, the scene in which the Cullen clan advised Bella how to pass as human drew big laughs and cheers.
Most Incisive Audience Question: Rob Pattinson was asked what advice Breaking Dawn Edward would give to Twilight Edward. His answer? “Keep it in your pants.”
Check back at EW.com later today for more on the Breaking Dawn panel and press conference at Comic-Con.

EW's Comic-Con 2012 movie preview: 'Iron Man 3,' 'Django Unchained,' 'Pacific Rim,' and 'Man of Steel'
Let’s face it — Comic-Con has become Movie-Con.
Though it originated decades ago as an annual haven for comic book fans, this week’s festival of all things geek-chic has become the ultimate place for Hollywood to show off its biggest, loudest, and most expensive tentpole motion pictures.
There are still comic books at the convention, and a lot of TV, and pretty much everyone involved in any type of genre storytelling will be trying to make an impact in and around San Diego this coming weekend.
But the biggest tent in this sci-fi/fantasy circus is the 6,000-plus-seat auditorium known as Hall H — and that’s where all those fans dressed as superheroes, stormtroopers, and Slave Leias will be fighting for a front row seat to the main event — movies.
Here’s a preview of what’s expected to shock and awe:
We’ve already introduced you to Mackenzie Foy, the actress who plays Renesmee in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 2. But we haven’t yet discussed the character’s supernatural link to a certain older man. Jacob (Taylor Lautner), who’s spent most of the series in unrequited love with Bella, has imprinted on her daughter, Renesmee — “imprinting” being the process of which his tribe of werewolves discover their soul mates.
In the past, Lautner has said he found the metaphysical mechanics of it all a bit confusing. But talking to Stephenie Meyer and diving back into the book got him more comfortable with the notion of being in love with a child. “Everybody likes to tease me about it,” he says. READ FULL STORY
The full teaser trailer for The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 2 has arrived. Watch it below to see Bella in action as a protective mother vampire (Kristen Stewart is already a more convincing badass here than she was in Snow White and the Huntsman), along with Michael Sheen chewing some scenery in the most delicious manner.
