With the 2013 MTV Movie Awards bumped up two months, the ceremony now nearly coincides with the birth date of one of our very favorite actresses: Kristen Stewart. Today is the starlet's 23rd birthday, and who better to lead-off our gallery of the greatest Movie Award GIFs than the woman of the hour, who's provided plenty of memorable moments throughout the years.
Who could forget the 2009 ceremony, when KStew accepted her Golden Popcorn with a side of Butterfingers? The Best Female Performance statuette went flying from her hands, and ultimately had to be replaced.
Damsels in distress...ugh. We here at Hollywood Crush prefer our protagonists to be butt-kickers of the highest order—or, at the very least, BAMFs in training. And, happily, so too does actress Lily Collins, who plays teen Clary Fray in the upcoming "Mortal Instruments: City of Bones."
When we caught up with the starlet recently at WonderCon, she revealed how she made the character her own—and a fighter, to boot.
"I actually saw a lot of similarities between Clary and I," Lily said. "She's a go-getter. She's feisty. She fights for what she believes in, and I really associate a lot of her qualities with mine, but I also wanted to bring this realness to her, like she was just the girl next door, because I didn't want her to be this caricature of a fan-favorite heroine in a book. I wanted her to be someone you could be friends with next door."
Not an easy task, considering Clary is actually a descendant of a long line of demon-destroying Nephilim known as Shadowhunters. (I don't know about you, but the only super-human ability my childhood neighbor had was flying across the Slip 'n Slide really fast.) So how did Lily accomplish this feat?
It's easy to forget—what with those otherworldly silver irises staring back at you—that at its heart, Stephenie Meyer's alien-invasion epic, "The Host," is a love story. In fact, it even does the author's previous saga ("Twilight," duh) one better, boasting a love square (that's four sides, guys!) at its juicy center.
As we anticipate the film's Friday release, Hollywood Crush got its hands on an EXCLUSIVE trailer to evoke all the feels you will feel while watching the romantic thriller this weekend.
But wait! There's more! If you click past the jump, you'll be treated to a collection of brand-new images that are likely to cause uncontrollable sweating and swooning: Max Irons looking dreamy. Jake Abel looking dreamy. Max Irons looking dreamy again. What more do we need to say?
Things have been quiet on the "Fifty Shades of Grey" front. We know something is happening with that movie, but we have no idea what. But now comes word that "Arrow" star and all-around-dream-man Stephen Amell (and his perfect abs and baby blues) could tackle the role of Christian Grey. Our pulses are racing!
"I get questions about Christian Grey all the time," Stephen shared on Facebook. "That project is a long way off. I know this, because I had a meeting about it. Long way off. I mean, not that long, but not close. I wouldn't call it long, but I wouldn't call it close."
In the wide world of book-to-movie adaptations, nothing gives us literary snobs the warm fuzzies quite like a star who really gets it—"it", of course, being the heart and soul of the story behind the film. And nobody fits that particular bill quite like Lily Collins, who's starring in the upcoming "Mortal Instruments: City of Bones." Just watch her enthusing about the source material in this interview from the set!
"I love the stories," Lily gushed. "I love Clary because she's this heroine who's this normal girl, who finds out she has these powers."
And when it comes to seeing the world of "City of Bones" on-screen, Lily said that you can count on much, much more than just a pretty shell of a setting full of stunning special effects: "The emotion is there. It's not just a CGI world. It's not just a translation of a book. It's more emotionally, character-based than just aesthetically beautiful."
From jumping trains to battling cancer, Shailene Woodley is determined to be your YA everygirl. Months after landing the lead role of Beatrice "Tris" Prior in the big-screen adaptation of Veronica Roth's dystopian "Divergent," the 21-year-old actress has been offered the highly coveted part of Hazel Grace Lancaster in "The Fault in Our Stars," based on the beloved John Green novel, according to Entertainment Weekly.
Published in 2012, "The Fault in Our Stars" follows teen cancer patient Hazel as she falls in love with fellow support group kid Augustus Waters. The book was one of the most celebrated YA novels of of the year, even earning Time's honor of best fiction book of 2012.
Okay, YA fans: We're thinking of a number between one and 10. Can you guess what it is? We'll give you a hint: It's a magic number. A mysterious number. A number that connotes strength, and courage, and brooding tortured hotness that makes Abnegation transfers go weak in their selfless little knees.
You do know where we're going with this, right? You are getting ready to scream with delight, aren't you? Because yes, the "Divergent" movie has finally cast its leading man: The role of Dauntless leader Four will be played by "Golden Boy" star Theo James.
They can take our lives, but they can never take our FREEEEEDOM ... to make-out in the rain. That's the top-line lesson we're gleaning from a new, EXCLUSIVE clip from the upcoming post-apocalyptic romance "The Host," out March 29.
Set to the strains of Imagine Dragon's "Radioactive" (a track you should recognize from the trailer), we meet Melanie Stryder (played by Saoirse Ronan), her brother Jamie Stryder (played by Chandler Canterbury) and her boyfriend Jared Howe (played by Max Irons)— a few of the remaining people on Earth after an invading race commandeered human bodies for their own use. But it's not all bad because there's still love. (And by "love" we mean "steamy, steamy kisses.")
While "The Vampire Diaries" writers have never treated anyone like they were sacred, we were pretty shocked when Elena's brother, Jeremy, was killed off last month. It was a pretty gutsy move for the show to make—considering he was the only person really keeping the vamp from showing her fangs.
When MTV News' Tami Katzoff spoke to writer/producer Jose Molina about the earth-shattering decision to off Jeremy, he explained why little Gilbert was the character that just had to go, leaving us with Steven McQueen withdrawals.
"You never kill off a main character without giving it a lot of thought, but one of the things I always loved about 'TVD' as a fan was how fearless it was. When I joined the show this season, I wanted to keep the stakes as high as ever, and it felt like Jeremy's death would have the most impact," he explained. "Not that it was remotely a unilateral decision on my part —it was one that Julie and the writing staff made together—but I personally felt like it was a good move, and I'm very happy that I got to pull the proverbial trigger!"
