Listen, I’m a huge fan of The Twilight Saga too but you have to admit the acting isn’t stellar. In fact, some scenes are so uncomfortable to watch, it seems like someone forced Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson to wear mole-hair corsets under their clothes.
Their lack of body movements and uncomfortable facial expressions is one reason why dubbing over their dialogue is so HILARZ. BadLipReading had actors read over scenes of the movie with a script that has NOTHING to do with the plot. The editing is so seamless that if I hadn’t seen Twilight already I wouldn’t have questioned Bella and Edward’s conversations about eating cake and spitting… though I probably would have questioned the writer’s sanity.
In the past, they’ve worked their magic on Taylor Swift and Justin Bieber, brushing on topics like Asian babies and being a “dumb girl.”
Watch it here:
As if your clothes aren’t branded enough with logos, now you can literally wear your stance on a hot pop culture topic on your chest. Never again will your friends have to question your stance on the whole K-Stew/RPatz fiasco and if they do, you can just point to your shirt.
Online retailer Skreened is offering a variety of themed T-shirts so you can broadcast your loyalty or undying hate for the Twilight star, who cheated on boyfriend Robert Pattinson with Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders.
At $20 each, you’ll be able to minimize the
obligatory Kristen Stewart chatter and zone right into the heart of the debate.

Robert Pattinson must have expected the obligatory, intrusive breakup questions when he appeared on Jon Stewart last night but according to The Daily Show host everything is less scary when you have the ultimate breakup remedy on hand — a carton of ice cream and a spoon.
The Twilight and Cosmopolis star joked about not knowing how to deal with slightly intimidating questions about his scandalous breakup with Kristen Stewart, who
“had a moment of indiscretion” cheated on him with Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders. ”God, I thought we already prepared this. I had a joke prepared!” he told Stewart. “I was all set up and ready to go.”
You have to give Pattinson some credit. For an actor who’s already quite
reserved awkward in interviews it must be tough for him to handle such personal questions.
Luckily Stewart had some helpful breakup advice for RPatz: “last time I had a bad breakup, Ben & Jerry’s got me through some of the tougher times. So I thought you and I could bond over this and talk about ‘boy, you are better off, kick her to the curb.”
Watch it here:
Will Ferrell appeared on Conon last night to promote his new movie The Campaign that he stars alongside Zach Galifianakis as political rivals. He didn’t seem to be acting himself, and soon broke out into an emotional outburst after Conon questioned his well beings.
“I don’t know if you follow the news at all but there’s this actress, Kristen Stewart – she goes by KStew. She had a boyfriend, right? Robert Pattinson, he’s RPatz and she cheated on him.” O’Brien tried to assure Ferrell (who’s definitely acting like a total Twi-Hard) that everything would be okay, but he burst back shouting, “What they had was so special, Conan! You don’t even know what they had! They were in love and she just threw it all away!”
Okay I mean he does has a point, what’s going to happen with the next installment from the Twilight series. Awkz. Do you think they’ll be able to work things out?
Kanye is a master sleuth

How could he be so bold?
A picture’s worth a thousand words and gif is worth even more. Kristen Stewart is giving director Rupert Sanders a bit of ‘tude while motioning to his crotch. In reality, she probably just said something really mundane like “Wow, what nice jacket lapels.” [Jessica Messica]
Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez record a sex tape NOT
Come on guys! JB and Selena Gomez would never 1) Record a sex tape on an iPhone 2) Be careless enough to leave the iPhone in Starbucks. Did you buy the satirical report by Hollywood Leek and Best Movies Ever?
Chris Brown gets NO STARS EVER Read more…
While Carly Rae Jepsen is doing her best to dodge an alleged nude photo scandal, Lady Gaga just puts it all out there. Her recently posted nude photo is certainly one way to grab attention, whether you think it’s artistic or not. She posted the photo to her social networking site LittleMonsters.com and although she supposedly has nude underwear on, it’s hard to tell.
Alongside the photo she wrote: ”Resting after BARNEY’S GAGA WORKSHOP OPENING IN NY.” Her new site has tons of other amazing photos, including pics of her and Lindsay Lohan’s slumber party at the Chateau Marmont.
If you think about it, Lady Gaga is doing a total solid for Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson by taking some of the unwanted media attention away from them. Plus, you’ve got to give it to the girl for baring it all for her fans!
She her tweet below:
If you can’t stand to read the book on your own, let these celebrities and YouTubers do it for you…
Ellen was asked to record the steamy novel Fifty Shades of Grey but was shocked at the pornographic language, so she opted to paraphrase the most obscene terminology (think of secret gardens and hammers). She went one step further by adding in sound effects, using her own vocalizations and props. Oh my.
Gilbert Gottfried’s cranky voice doesn’t lend itself well to BDSM. We hope this doesn’t ruin the book for you.
This drunk chick reads Fifty Shades of Grey while (obvs) drinking white wine. For some reason, she insists on speaking in a variety of Shakespearean accents, even though both Christian and Anastasia are both American. This is why you disable your webcam before a night at the bar people…

In the world of celebrity news, there’s no shortage of hits and misses. This week, Christian Bale visits the survivors of the Colorado shooting, and LMFAO is accused of firing a bikini girl for being big boned.
HIT: Christian Bale visits the Colorado theatre shooting memorial and meets the survivors
The Batman star and his wife visited the Aurora, Colorado hospital where seven survivors are being treated for their injuries after the mass shooting during a screening of The Dark Knight Rises. He asked staff beforehand not to notify the media as he wasn’t there to represent the studio, but instead, himself. Bale reportedly spent two and a half hours at the hospital and also paid a visit to the memorial near the movie theater. It’s nice to see that he went beyond his duty as the star of the franchise, by answering the pleas of the Facebook campaign asking him to visit. He became a real hero to all Batman fans. We can now add Bale to the list of “celebrities who are awesome.”
MISS: Justin Bieber, Drake Bell Twitter drama
Former Nickelodeon star Drake Bell tweeted it was ridiculous for artists to have autobiographical films when they haven’t been around for all that long, referring to Katy Perry. Later, he said his account had been hacked and he “… wouldn’t randomly bash @katyperry….bieber however lol.” Then things went CRAY. Fans tweeted the expected “you’re just jealous” comments, but one also sent him a photo of a knife and he received threats of death by stoning. This is why you don’t upset Beliebers people! They mean business.
HIT: Rupert Grint runs with the Olympic Torch
I hate watching sports on TV, but I love the Olympics. I also love all things British, and that includes Harry Potter. I was super stoked to see Rupert Grint run with the torch and it brought a happy, proud tear to my eye. Now, if the Olympic Committee has Doctor Who’s David Tennant run with the torch like he did in one episode, I may just start bawling. Please higher beings, make it happen.
MISS: Kristen Stewart cheats on Robert Pattinson with her Snow White director Read more…
Did you feel that shift in the wind this today? That was when we got the
confession apology letter from Kristen Stewart, dedicated to everyone she upset after cheating on Robert Pattinson with Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders. That subtle but visible change in temperature was due to all the Twihards losing their FREAKING MINDS.
And now it’s starting.
This will be our life for the next couple days — nay weeks — people. Reaction videos, top ten lists about why Kristen sucks or rocks and parodies about her awkwardness (which I happen to love). Experts will theorize about how they saw it coming through the couple’s stiff body language, cursive handwriting and “telling” facial expression. This is the state of pop culture people…
Through all the media cacophony there’s at least one reasonable voice. Okay, it’s not really reasonable at all. In fact, this video from nuttymadam3575 is just a sampling of the reaction videos to come. We’d just like to remind everyone that Kristen Stewart is in fact a different person than Bella Swan and that Robert Pattinson is not ACTUALLY Edward Cullen. Kay, glad we sorted that out.
The thing that bothers me most about this whole “OMG Kristen Stewart cheated on Robert Pattinson” scandal isn’t that we’re so feeble that we crumble whenever the shiny veneer of Hollywood demi-gods fades (because it seems like we do), it’s that our teeth come out and we judge judge judge.
Pretty much everyone knows by now through Twitter, Facebook, blogs or just a friend calling them up to bare teeth that 22-year-old K-Stew had an intimate relationship with 41-year-old Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders.
At first it was gleefully trilled by Hollywood rags with photo evidence but then we got confirmation from Stewart herself, who went straight into public apology mode: ”I’m deeply sorry for the hurt and embarrassment I’ve caused to those close to me and everyone this has affected,” she said in a statement to People. “This momentary indiscretion has jeopardized the most important thing in my life, the person I love and respect the most, Rob. I love him, I love him, I’m so sorry.”
Sanders, who is married to model-actress Liberty Ross, later issued an apology too: ”I am utterly distraught about the pain I have caused my family.” He also said: ”My beautiful wife and heavenly children are all I have in this world. I love them with all my heart. I am praying that we can get through this together.”
According to Perez Hilton, Ross, who appeared as Stewart’s mother in the movie, allegedly posted this photo on Instagram and later disabled her Twitter.
And so far, no word from RPatz camp.
It seems that never so closely is a career and social life tied up than in Hollywood. The Twitterverse is alight with people behind computer screens slaying her. And yes, it was wrong but don’t forget that Sanders is the 41-year-old here with a wife and children. Both are at fault.
While some of the tweets are pretty harsh, other are more perceptive.
Tell us: what do you think about the Stewart/Sanders affair? More importantly, do you think everyone gets too involved?
For all those people who fervently believe celebrities are in fact robots who don’t have any feelings, Jimmy Kimmel has a message for you. Pull up your pants, do some serious self reflection and STOP bullying people on Twitter. In fact, many celebrities do read your mean tweets and are hurt by them. If you insist on trolling because it’s in your genes or something, then at least use your real name.
Over the past little while, Kimmel has been rounding up celebrities like Justin Bieber, Kristen Stewart, Snooki, Katy Perry and Zooey Deschanel, to read some of the mean tweets they received from the Twitterverse. Apparently Stewart was better as a boy and Snooki has a vagina as big as an ocean (unnecessary rumor control: neither of these are true).
Ultimately, I think it’s a good idea that Twitter and YouTube are encouraging people to buck up and use their real names so they can clean up the discourse. Here’s the test: if you wouldn’t post a comment with your real name, then it’s best no to post it at all!

When it came to last night’s Teen Choice Awards, there were no glaring sartorial errors. If I had one complaint it’s that some of the styles were a little safe and boring. We saw tons of classic silhouettes and brights colours walking down the pink carpet.
Taylor Swift (above) was the big winner of the night, snatching her 20th trophy, which is the most won by a female artist EVER. Last night she won five awards: choice female artist, female country artist, single by a female artist for “Eyes Open,” country song for “Sparks Fly” and choice movie voice for “Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax.” WOA. She wins as one of my favourite stylistas of the night, opting for a white dress by Maria Lucia Hohan. The back was beautifully cut and I love the sheer straps.

Who: Kristen Stewart at Comic Con
Why we love it: Kristen exudes coolness with her wind-swept waves, casual T-shirt and stretch skirt. She epitomizes street style by completing her look with strategically undone high tops. Don’t be afraid to mix patterns and add vibrant pops of colour to this look. Stack your arms with bangles and you are ready for any summer festival.
Kristen Stewart looks absolutely stunning as the face of Balenciaga’s new fragrance, Florabotanica.
Donning an edgy, floral dress, the visual ad is our first look at the fragrance, which is set to be released in September.
While I’m no expert in beauty products, I wish she would look a little more enthusiastic instead of her usual, expressionless glare.
In the world of celebrity news, there’s no shortage of hits and misses. This week, John Mayer is creepy and hits on Jennifer Lawrence and Justin Bieber feels “disrespected” by fans.
HIT: Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone are invading your magazine stand
Garfield is on Nylon Guys, British GQ, i-D and VMan, while Stone has New York Magazine and Vogue, with an extensive spread. They also look adorable together on Teen Vogue. The Teen Vogue interview is a good read as two banter with each other, Stone talks about the stupid questions she gets, and Garfield reveals his man-crush on Ryan Gosling. I may or may not rush into my local Chapters, place all the magazines together, and label that section “OTP.”
MISS: Justin Bieber is rude to fans as he waits for Selena Gomez
While JBiebs’ star shone at the legendary Apollo Theater in New York, the media blew up a scuffle he had with some fans at the airport. Apparently, Bieber was bothered by the number of fans who were asking for his autograph as he waited for Selena Gomez. “I’ve had a long day, I flew in,” said Bieber. “I don’t have to be nicer about it. You guys are in my face.” Bieber was probably having an off day and you have to admit, it must be frustrating to have no privacy. Everybody has those days once in a while!
HIT: Adele’s “Rolling in the Deep” wakes a girl from a coma Read more…
In the new trailer for Breaking Dawn Part 2, we finally get a better look at the plot. Bella is now a newly turned vampire and mother to Renesmee but her entire family is in danger when the Volturi hear about her new child.
For non-Twilight fans: child vampires are strictly forbidden because they can’t control their emotions and can be manipulated to kill muchos humans.
I’m pretty dayam excited about the film, but I imagined Bella would have gone through a more drastic transformation. Admittedly that’s the main reason we were all so angry when the last film ended. They were all like, PSYCH suckers, gotta see the next film to get a glimpse of Bella as a vampire.
The film is in theatres on Nov. 16, so we still have a while to wait. In the meantime Kristen Stewart is certainly raking in the cash. It was just revealed that she’s the highest earning actress in Hollywood right now. The girl pulled in $34.5 million in a year. Chunk change.
Watch it here:
Kristen Stewart looks GORG on the July cover of Vanity Fair. She’s one of the more awkward members of Young Hollywood but jeez, guys, she’s just a regular person and I definitely appreciate that she doesn’t fit the archetype. Give her a break.
K-Stew got to chill with Karl Lagerfeld AND photographer Mario Testino at the shoot in Paris like it’s no big deal. ”It was the first time I ever had an actual conversation with him. He’s incredibly sweet. It felt like such an important moment in my life,” she said about meeting Lagerfeld. “It was very cool.”
Some of the couture looks are jaw-droppingly beautiful though I’d be afraid to walk around, lest it get a scuff mark.
Stewart, who’s currently starring in Snow White and the Huntsman also revealed to VF how she was a total tomboy when she was younger.
“Look at a picture of me before I was 15. I am a boy,” Stewart said. “I wore my brother’s clothes, dude! Not like I cared that much, but I remember being made fun of because I wasn’t wearing Juicy jeans.”
Watch the behind the scenes video here:
So much HAWTNESS at the MTV Movie Awards last night. But I appreciate the misses too because at least those celebs are taking a fashion risk. Otherwise it’s just plain boring, right?
Peplum: Emma Stone & Charlize Theron
Both Emma Stone and Charlize Theron pulled off peplum looks. Theron wins by a thread because her striking red Lanvin dress complements her skin tone perfectly and is a little more fun for the MTV Movie Awards. But Stone won the trailblazer award so you know whatever look she touches is golden.
Vintage-inspired T’s: Wiz Khalifa
Wiz Khalifa wore a Joan Jett shirt (above) and sunglasses indoors because duh! I’m not sure if he’s wearing the top ironically but I NEED. It looks comfortable plus he’s paying respects to one of rock’s legends.
Sneakers: Kristen Stewart
K-Stew always steals my heart because she manages to be fashionable without sacrificing her comfort or individuality. Some old school designers might cringe (Sacrebleu!) at the sight of her sneakers but personally I think she manages to pull them off. Of course, she didn’t change into the sneakers until after the red carpet because her stylist would have died. Love the Guishem dress too.

Remember that alleged yet undeniably bogus feud between Jennifer Lawrence and Kristen Stewart? That sh*t just got real. Well, not really, but The Hunger Games and Twilight stars are going for the same movie role and in an effort to make rivalries out of thin air (like magic!) a spat is being concocted.
The two ladies are going for Peyton Loftis in Lie Down In Darkness. The character is a beaut of a girl whose family contributes to her ultimate suicide. That is dark! It’s based on the book of the same name by William Styron.
Both actresses have expressed their interested in the role. ”I want to play Peyton more than anything I can possibly taste or touch in my life,” Stewart said to Elle. ”I want to play her so bad. They’re the most fucked-up family. There’s a script adaptation . . . and it’s good. Two people vying for the part [of the father] are Daniel Day-Lewis and Colin Firth. Daniel would be perfect.”
Then Jennifer Lawrence went and told W Magazine: ”“I am obsessed with that part. I have this feeling of protectiveness over characters I want to play . . . If someone else gets the part, I’m afraid they won’t do it right.
“I’m trying to write the director . . . to convince him that I should be in his movie. I’ll chase him if I have to. I’ll sit outside his house.”
These ladies are both too laid back to get into any sort of Hollywood-style feud (thankfully) but we have to say, this must be the most difficult decision of life for the casting director. [Source]
Who do you think would fit the role?
