If you've already snagged yourself a copy of the soundtrack to "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2," you might have noticed that there's a strange similarity between the credits on the album, and the cast of the movie: Nikki Reed, who plays Rosalie Hale, shows up in both! Nikki, along with "American Idol"-atrous husband Paul McDonald, penned and performed the song "All I've Ever Needed" —and if you're wondering why, then guess what? She did it for you.
"I just wanted this for the fans, so much," she explained. "I wanted the fans to know how I connected with these films."
Yes, we know what you're thinking! Robert Pattinson hasn't been a Hump Day Hottie yet? But, we were waiting for now to celebrate Robert's greatness. As he bids "Twilight" a fond farewell, and he looks ahead to his very bright future, now feels like the perfect time to let the British babe know how much we love him. So, it’s finally Robert’s time to sit in the hot seat as we finally(!) name him this week’s Hump Day Hottie.
Check out this dreamy photo of Rob and keep reading for more details about him!
Vital stats: The 26-year-old grew up in a suburb of London. As a youth, he honed his craft in theater and also put those good looks to use as a model before finding fame and fortune in Hollywood.
With "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2" hitting theaters this Friday, the time has come to say some hard goodbyes. Goodbye to copper-eyed vampires with glittering pecs that sparkle in the Pacific Northwest sun; goodbye to shapeshifting wolfmen who are allergic to wearing shirts; goodbye to Forks High School and its charmingly clueless student body. But of all the things we'll miss from the annals of the "Twilight" universe, there's one individual whose loss we're feeling particularly keenly —one who made us laugh, who made us swoon and whose mere presence on camera stole the show every time. And today, we're delighted to announce that this star of the films has taken time from his busy schedule to chat exclusively, one-on-one with Hollywood Crush.
We're talking, of course, about Charlie Swan's Mustache.
Edward Cullen 2016? With the tremendous outpouring of support heaped upon the vegetarian vampire during MTV News' Twi-Fight Saga, we wouldn't be surprised if he eyed a presidential bid next. Which is all to say, yes, after more than 2 million votes, the hunky vampire was selected as the No. 1 "Twilight" character by fans. Three cheers for Eddie!
In fact, the final face-off wasn't even a close contest. Edward battled lady love Bella Swan in the Championship Round, handily spanking her as he earned 70 percent of the vote.
It was a victory the bloodsucker's real-life alter ego, Robert Pattinson, relished while on the black carpet for last night's "Breaking Dawn - Part 2" premiere.
"I like that MTV just invents awards," Rob said with a laugh when informed of his character's honor. "They have, like, six different things."
And so it was that Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner put on their prettiest party frocks and walked "The Twilight Saga" black carpet one final time, for last night's premiere of "Breaking Dawn - Part 2" at L.A.'s Nokia Theatre. And, as we've come to expect from the top trio, they did it in fine fashion.
But there was a twist! Surprisingly, the award for most stunning style went not to one of the lovely leading ladies but to dapper hottie Rob, who flaunted an emerald green Gucci suit with the aplomb of someone twice his age. Well done, sir. GF Kristen wasn't to be overlooked, though: She simply sparkled in her strapless, nude Zuhair Murad, which she topped off with soft curls and a blood-red lip. So Old Hollywood glam!
Tonight's the night, Twilighters: the final "Twilight Saga" premiere! It's hard to believe it's all coming to an end, and we're not the only ones in denial. Starlet Ashley Greene (who it seems has finally been able to leave New York after a number of weather-related delays), took to Twitter today to remind fans of the big fete in La La Land tonight.
No doubt it will be a bittersweet moment for the stars, who have spent the better part of half a decade filming and promoting the five films.
Ash, if you ever need a girls' night, you know where to find us!
"But is it scary?" I asked rather sheepishly.
Having never cut my teeth on Anne Rice, or soaked in the suds of Sookie Stackhouse, I was anything but fang-friendly when a photo editor colleague at Entertainment Weekly recommended I read a buzzy bloodsucker series penned by Stephenie Meyer. But after a splashy cover story (for which Robert Pattinson famously posed as the love child of Fabio and Donald Trump), my curiosity could not be denied. And I bit into "Twilight."
It was 2008, and I had moved to the city a few months earlier to pursue a career in magazine journalism. Little did I know as I paged past the lacquered black cover and into the depths of Edward and Bella's star-crossed romance how pivotal the series would prove to my career path.
As one of only a handful of dot-com writers who had—at that point—become intimately acquainted with the goings on in Forks, Washington, I became one of the go-to scribes for all things related to the series, which provided many more writing opportunities and reporting outings than the average intern would have dreamt of. One of my most cherished memories from that time speaks to just how nichey the saga scene was before the "Twilight" film debuted later that year.
With this month marking the release of "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2," the media landscape has turned into a markedly more bloodthirsty version of Old MacDonald's famous farm—with sparkly members of the Cullen family popping up here, there and everywhere. (Insert your E-I-E-I-O refrain here.) And few of the cast members from the saga have been more ubiquitous than the Ashley Greene, whose supporting role as Alice has given her just as much star status as if she'd headlined the films along with Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson. Her latest appearance? It's in Seventeen, where her photo shoot showcased a series of fun, colorful looks and featured the actress perched on a carousel! And inside, she happily dished with her interviewer on relationship drama, her evolving style sense and bidding good old Alice Cullen a fond farewell.
Of course, the relationship drama everyone's really wondering about isn't Ashley's; the much-discussed saga of Robsten is still on everyone's mind, but Ashley was characteristically cagey about any mention of her costars' romance. The one thing she would say? That she hopes the whirlwind of gossip surrounding the film's headliners won't ruin the franchise for the people to whom it matters most: the fans.
After three weeks of biting, clawing and sparkling their way to the top, it all comes down to this: vampire loves Edward Cullen and Bella Swan face off for the title of No. 1 "Twilight" character in MTV News' epic Twi-Fight Saga! The newlyweds have easily undone their competition in each of the five rounds, meaning this—the Championship Round—could be anyone's game.
Along the way, we've had a handful of "Twilight" experts weigh in with their picks, and we've offered our own round-by-round commentary, but it's really all up to you! Voting concludes today at 6 p.m. ET, with the winner to be announced shortly thereafter. All of which means, you best pick a side and cast your ballot before it's too late!
From the outside looking in, being a working actor or trying to be one seems like far too much of a headache to give it any serious thought. (At least from my perspective, that is.) The road to fame and fortune is more often than not a rocky one, paved with more No's than Yes's.
MTV's new show "This Is How I Made It" is an exploration of some of those challenges in the biz, and this week's episode features a story of how "Teen Wolf" star Tyler Posey almost ended up in "Twilight."
