If you've been dying to get an advance look at little Renesmee Cullen, the rapid-growing spawn of the newlywed Edward and Bella whose traumatic birth concluded the penultimate film in the series and who will finally (finally!) make her big appearance in "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2," then Entertainment Weekly has a little treat for you over on Facebook: a sneak-peeky family portrait of the Cullens, with Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson keeping close parental watch on the mysterious daughter who's making her debut in the magazine this week! Just click the Like button, and then feast your eyes on the first media glimpse of Renesmee.
...And we do mean "glimpse." You can only see, like, one-sixteenth of the child in this photo—it's less a full-on portrait than it is some hair, an eyeball, and part of a leg. (Wait, is that her leg?)

Some things in life get old after the third or fourth time. Winning Best Movie at the MTV Movie Awards? Not so much.
Not too many people are in a position to comment on that feeling, of course. And not too many movie franchises achieve the "phenomenon" status of "The Twilight Saga" ('though "The Hunger Games" may be on its way!), which collected a fourth consecutive Movie of the Year Golden Popcorn on Sunday.
"It's always meaningful," Nikki Reed told MTV News backstage, as she laughed off the idea that it could ever get old.
"Twilight" faced perhaps its toughest challenger yet in the form of "The Hunger Games," whose box-office success surpassed every entry in the romantic vampires-and-werewolves series in terms of opening weekend gross and overall domestic numbers. The fan base for each franchise is fervent in its devotion, but the "Twilight" legions are the stuff of pop culture legend where the MTV Awards are concerned.
Is Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart's "Breaking Dawn - Part 1" smooch hot enough to cinch a Movie Awards Best Kiss four-peat? We'll have to wait until tomorrow (the agony! the ecstasy!) to find out if the pair can beat out competitors Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone ("Crazy, Stupid, Love"), Rupert Grint and Emma Watson ("Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2"), Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson ("The Hunger Games") and Rachel McAdams and Channing Tatum ("The Vow"). And if the "Twilight" stars do indeed score another Golden Popcorn, there will be yet another question to address: Who will Kristen kiss?
You see, while the "Snow White and the Huntsman" star will be in attendance, the other pair of lips in this equation will, sadly, not be. When our friends at MTV UK caught up with the hunk at a junket for his upcoming "Cosmopolis," they got down to the bottom of KStew's quandry.
"I don't know," Rob said when asked if he'd be devastated if he and Kristen didn't win Best Kiss. "We didn't get nominated for anything else. I'm like, 'Grr.' I have to be in Toronto for 'Cosmopolis,' but I think Kristen is going so she's going to kiss herself if she wins."
We're psyched about all the stars who will be in attendance at the MTV Movie Awards this Sunday, but all that mega-wattage means producers had the tricky task of seating everyone in the audience of the Gibson Amphitheater. It's a job that many would consider quite daunting, but those in charge were up to the challenge.
Needless to say, "Twilight" star Kristen Stewart is going to be sitting front and center during the ceremony. Nearby will be the "Magic Mike" crew, who we assume will spend the show spontaneously grinding against every woman who walks by. (Let us dream, people!) And keep an eye out for Michael Fassbender and his two seats. MTV News' Jim Cantiello, who shows off the celebrity seating arrangements, has quite the theory as to who (or what) will be the "Shame" star's plus one.
The competition is stiff this year in the MTV Movie Awards Best Kiss category, but there's no performance anxiety for "Twilight" producer Wyck Godfrey! When we caught up with the man who's been responsible for heading things up behind the scenes on all four films in "The Twilight Saga"—including the most recent "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1"—he confessed to being all kinds of confident that Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart will be taking home the Golden Popcorn for the fourth consecutive year in a row. Why? Er, let's just say that the shattered furniture and shredded pillows that come later in the film might have something to do with it.
"The Best Kiss is when it's really about a prelude to sex," Wyck grinned. "Sometimes that takes it up a notch, and that could be what might get us over the hump."
...We see what you did there, sir. Over the hump, indeed! But really, the producer may be onto something when he says that the promise of post-kiss, bedroom-destroying, human-on-vampire nookie is what makes the "Breaking Dawn" wedding liplock extra-special—and exciting enough to come out ahead of even the steamy smooch in "The Vow."
Waiting for the final installment of the "Twilight" saga to hit theaters in November and reunite our fave celeb couple (Robsten, in case you couldn't figure it out) is no easy task. And though Stephenie Meyer isn't wasting time pining for vampire series past—the writer behind our favorite supernatural romance has moved on, this time to the big, exciting work of bringing her next book, "The Host," to the big screen—Stephenie admitted during our on-set visit that as thrilling as the new project is, she's also kinda missing the dynamic duo who brought Edward and Bella to life.
"It makes it a lot calmer," she laughed, when MTV News' Josh Horowitz asked if this movie felt strange or sad without Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson on board. "I do miss them though, it seems funny not to have Kristen here."
It's no secret we're pretty big "Twilight" fans here at Hollywood Crush, so you can bet we'll be tuning in to Punk'd tomorrow night when Emmett Cullen himself, Kellan Lutz, takes over. (We may own a Team Emmett shirt though we'd deny it if you told anyone.) On his prank list are "Awkward" star Ashley Rickards and actress Julianne Hough.
After knocking barrels of a dark liquid over with her car, Ashley sticks her fingers down the throat of a man who swallows a mouthful of the icky stuff, attempting to purge it from his stomach. Talk about taking action in a sticky situation! Julianne then has to try to save her brother from drowning in a lake of mud. Yikes! It's a "Punk'd: Heroes Edition" if you ask us.
With the studio behind the "Twilight" film franchise having already announced its interest in continuing the saga, the only thing standing between you and MOAR TWILIGHT FOREVER is author Stephenie Meyer—and her willingness to keep on keeping on with the stories of non-homicidal vampires, werewolves who never wear shirts and various interspecies love triangles between the living, the shapeshifting, and the living undead. So when Josh Horowitz sat down for a chat with Stephenie, he asked her the question on everyone's mind: Are there still untold stories left in the "Twilight" canon?
At first, Stephenie was reluctant to make any promises. "Things change so much," she said. "From week to week, let alone year to year."
But make no mistake: For the bestselling author, the well of sparkly vampire romance is far from dry.
Seek and you shall find. Following an online scavenger hunt, in which Twilighters followed clues to unscramble and unlock a series of 22 links, the saga's Facebook page revealed three new character posters featuring Bella (Kristen Stewart), Edward (Robert Pattinson) and Jacob (Taylor Lautner).
Bella, unsurprisingly, is in full vamp mode with piercing scarlet eyes, soft waves and...is that a leather jacket we spy? Hot! Per usual, Edward and Jacob look their usual dreamy selves in their own close-cropped images. Each one-sheet boasts the tagline "Forever," likely a reference to the final sentence of author Stephenie Meyer's best-selling source material: "And then we continued blissfully into this small but perfect piece of our forever."
Let's be honest, we all have a Hollywood Crush—a cutie whose sheer existence inspires countless fever dreams and inestimable hours of Google Image gawking. For a lucky few, those fantasies become reality when faced with said star...in real life. Welcome to How I Met My Hollywood Crush, in which readers recall the time they rubbed elbows with their special celebrity someone!
This week Sarah Sands recounts her run-in with the actor who plays Quileute pack leader Sam in "The Twilight Saga": Chaske Spencer!
Just like any other person out there I am obsessed with "Twilight." The only thing different about me is that I am not Team Edward or Team Jacob. I am Team Sam Uley (a.k.a. Chaske Spencer). So when I found out that a Twilight Convention was going to be just a mile away from my apartment, and Chaske was going to be there, I had to go.
