For the film adaptation of the Green Day album and Broadway musical, American Idiot, the band is rooting for one vampire to take the lead.
Frontman Billie Joe Armstrong said Robert Pattinson would be the ideal actor to star in the lead role.
“I’m gonna say that kid in Twilight. He’s a good actor. There’s still more to come with that kid,” Armstrong told reporters a few years ago.
MTV says the only reason this quote is being resurrected now is because the film’s beginning the preproduction phase and casting has not been made yet. So, Twilight fans might be seeing Edward on the big screen again, only this time, less fangs and more jazz hands.
Glamour’s 50 Sexiest Men poll has come out, and for the third straight year, Robert Pattinson tops the list. His co-star Taylor Lautner came in a close second.
Glamour’s Sexiest Men of 2011 top 20:
HRH Prince Harry
‘Harry Potter’ star Daniel Radcliffe is the richest actor under 30, reports CTV.
The actor, who recently finished filming his run of ‘Potter’ films, made £28.5 million ($45 million) in 2009-10, pushing his net worth to about £48 million ($75 million).
The 21-year-old is not the only ‘Harry Potter’ actor to appear in The Sunday Times Rich List of young people. Emma Watson comes in at 13 with earnings of £2 million, pushing her total up to £22 million, joint with Rupert Grint.
Radcliffe is now currently appearing in the Broadway musical ‘How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying.’
Other stars who made the list include ‘Twilight’ star Robert Pattinson, who came in at number nine worth a total of £32 million, narrowly beating Keira Knightley, whose net work is £30 million – putting her at number 10.
Princes William and Harry came in one place after Keira thanks to their inheritance from their late mother Diana and land owning. Wow, the thought of royalty being worth less than a vampire in a really bad movie frightens me.
Here is The Sunday Times’ Rich Top 10 List of the 50 Richest Young People:
1. Thomas Persson, Fashion, £700 million
2. Robin Arora, Retail, £343 million

We guess Kristen Stewart is more like her Twilight character, Bella Swan, than we thought!
Instead of ringing in her 21st birthday with the traditional booze, her Breaking Dawn co-stars decided to wring in Stewart’s big 2-1 with none other than a motorcycle as a gift, reports MTV.
“Rob was so excited for Kristen, and they each took turns riding it. Kristen learned to ride a dirt bike in ‘New Moon‘ so they thought it would be appropriate,” a source said. “Rob was supervising as she sat on it to make sure she was OK. They looked like they were having a great time, and it will be something they can really enjoy!”
Stewart, along with beau Robert Pattinson and co-star Taylor Lautner, among others, celebrated her big day at Rockwell’s Bar & Grill in Squamish, British Columbia on her birthday this past Saturday night.
“Rob led the crowd singing for her, and you could tell she was so embarrassed but in a cute way!” a source told Us Weekly. “Everyone was in a good mood, but it was a bittersweet night [as filming is almost complete].”
As excited as you are about your new gift, Kristen, we advise you to be careful –a shirtless and “sorta beautiful” Jacob Black/Taylor Lautner can’t always be there to help you when you fall!
In an interview with MTV News Friday, a 24-year-old Pattinson stated the obvious, joking that the looks of his costars are of the utmost priority.
“I like hot girls,” he said. “I like being in movies with lots of hot girls.”
Pattinson, who plays the love interest for none other than long-time hot girl, Reese Witherspoon in the upcoming film, Water for Elephants, has acted alongside such silvers-screen beauties as Emilie de Ravin, Uma Thurman, and of course – real life love-interest, Kristen Stewart.
Of his former costars, Pattinson said, “They’re all very strong, actually, I always end up being in movies with very experienced and passionate people. They’re never just flimsy floozies.”
Well, I don’t know if I’d qualify any performances I’ve seen of Kristen Stewart as passionate per se, although admittedly the only thing I’ve seen her star in was the first installation of Twilight. I thought perhaps Pattinson’s and Stewart’s real-life relationship may have created a more visible passion for the highly anticipated love scene in November’s Breaking Dawn, but when asked about it though, Pattinson simply said, “It’s pretty funny.”
I may not be a Twi-hard, but I’m fairly certain that is not the answer loyal fans want to hear.
Before the “funny” Breaking Dawn scene hits though, Pattinson’s fans will get to see the actor in another love scene with Witherspoon when Water for Elephants opens in April.
“The love scene in this, I was doing it when I had a really bad cold,” Pattinson said. “My nose was running all over the place…and Reese had this wig on, and literally, I was wiping my nose on her wig.”
With memorable gems like these, Pattinson is doing a wonderful job at living up to his teen heartthrob status. Who wouldn’t want Rob to use their hair as a substitute for Kleenex?
With as many Twi-hards as there are out there – I’m not sure even I want to know the answer to that.
We’re sure you’ve all been counting down the days until the next Twilight movie, Breaking Dawn Part 1 opens in theatres (November 18th for those not in the know). Well, it looks like the people over at Summit Entertainment have decided to reward the patience of Twihards everywhere with an exclusive snap of Edward and Bella – canoodling in bed!
Actors Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart bear all in the next installment as their on-screen counterparts finally tie the knot and have an emotional honeymoon filled with long walks on the beach, staring deeply into each other’s eyes, and lots and lots of beautiful, respectful intercourse.
The film is said to be a study of capitalism in a slightly futuristic metropolis. The film will star Pattinson playing Eric Packer, a young financial genius and risk taker who stakes his entire fortune on a dangerous trading day. The decision turns ugly and he becomes a possible assassination target during a 24-hour adventure through Manhattan. The film will also star Marion Cotillard and Paul Giamatti.
Cronenberg can be seen walking the streets of Toronto. Does this mean that Pattinson may too be walking them soon? Cronenberg has filmed in Toronto for the majority of his movies like Videodrome and Crash. Toronto is often used as a New York City stand in, so perhaps he will stay in Toronto to film Cosmopolis. One can only hope.
However, we may see a certain increase of paparazzi and screaming 13-year-old girls running around Toronto if word does get out that Pattinson is in town.
When filming “New Moon”, Robert Pattinson needed some extra protection from the screaming fans. So producers of the film hired some Canadian mounties, reports RadarOnline.com.
“It was an unusual mission but our remit was to keep the fans off the set,” Constable Baillant told RadarOnline.com exclusively. “Everything went well on the first day but then a group of teenage girls got a little too close when the filming moved to the Long Beach area of the island.”
“They were totally miffed with us when we told them that they could not get any closer, however, their spirits lifted when Kristin Stewart came over to pose for a few photographs with them,” he recalled. “It was raining really hard the whole time but the producers loved that because it helped to make their scenes much more gloomy and atmospheric too. This is a beautiful part of the world but when it gets cold and wet even a vampire would get the chills.”
E! Online reports that shooting for parts one and two of the final ‘Twilight” saga begins in the fall.
Locals better get ready for a lot of paparazzi moving into their town!
PerezHilton reports that Taylor Lautner, Kristen Stewart, and Robert Pattinson are guaranteed $25 Million for the last two “Twilight” films, “Breaking Dawn” Parts One and Two.
Perez also notes that their payday could be potentially even bigger. They have apparently been offered 7.5% of the theatrical gross, which could be $41 Million a piece.
But seriously, aren’t we bored of this “Twilight” thing yet?
Twilight star Robert Pattinson took valium 20 minutes before his first audition for the movie, MuchMusic.com reports. During an interview with Nightline on Monday, Pattinson admitted that before he did his audition in front of director Catherine Hardwicke he stole valium from his roommate’s bedside table.
“Probably one of the best decisions I ever made,” he said.
Some of Pattinson’s co-stars, including Kellan Lutz and Ashley Greene, will be in Toronto this Sunday (June 20) to present at this year’s MuchMusic Video Awards.
Breaking Dawn, the fourth book of the hit vampire series, Twilight, will be split into two different movies, reports People.com.
Fans can expect to only see half of what is featured in the novel by Stephanie Meyer when the first part of Breaking Dawn is released in late 2011. The second half to the movie doesn’t have a release date as of yet, but production of both of the films is set to happen at the same time, starting this coming fall.
Oscar award winner Bill Condon is slated to direct both parts of Breaking Dawn and you don’t have to worry, of course Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner will all be returning.
The latest instalment of The Twilight Saga, Eclipse, is set to hit theatres on June 30.
Robert Pattinson is loved by Twilight fans for too many reasons to list. He is known all over the world. His face is on almost every magazine cover, he has T-shirts and dolls embellished with his face, and at the MTV Movie Awards on Sunday, his face dominated again, reports MTV News. So naturally, this poses the question – is it all going to his head?
“To be honest,” Rob said, “I should’ve been nominated in a few more categories.”
As if winning three awards for “New Moon” and having his face absolutely everywhere isn’t enough.
“It’s a disappointment,” Rob said, regarding “New Moon” winning multiple awards Sunday. “It’s an OK result.”
“I think it’s only three,” the star added. “We did better last year.”
What! Arrogant is not the first word to come to mind.
But wait, there is more. After one closely reviews the tape of the interview, it becomes clear that Rob is joking and being playful. Fame still hasn’t changed the man.
So in this world of spoiled and giant-ego headed stars, it is nice to know that at least one guy in Hollywood still knows how to laugh at himself. And there is no need to worry about Rob making the above statements for real anytime soon.
Last month, an announcement was made that a Kurt Cobain biopic was to be filmed, and according to CHARTattack, this has resulted in a flood of suggestions as to who should play the late front man of the legendary grunge group, Nirvana.
Cobain committed suicide in April of 1994.
Jake Gyllenhaal (Brokeback Mountain, Donnie Darko) is the most recent actor to be added to the list of possible “Cobains.” Jokingly, it was pointed out that since he’s got long hair now, for his new role in Prince of Persia, he could fit the role.
“I don’t know if I’d be the right choice – but the hair from Prince Of Persia could translate somehow,” Gyllenhaal told NME. “We could just bleach it!”
The rumours last month were that Robert Pattinson (Twilight) would play Cobain, but Courtney Love, Cobain’s widow, squashed those hopes. Love said that she would rather see Ryan Gosling (The Believer) or James McAvoy (Atonement) play the role.
Gosling has got great acting skills and has proven himself to be able to pull off a wide variety of roles.
Although McAvoy is only just beginning to gain recognition on this side of the pond, he is also great. He’s won BAFTA (British Academy Of Film And Television Arts) Awards … meaning he is good.
There is also Heath Ledger. But seeing as he is dead, this is not going to happen. But he would have been fantastic as Cobain. He was deep, dark, and a little troubled in his own right. He also displayed top quality acting chops, and while he was alive, Ledger could pretty much take on any role thrown at him.
And why not Emma Watson? Cate Blanchett played Bob Dylan and got nominated for an Academy Award. There is no reason why Hermione Grainger can’t turn into the grunge rocker. And she could also bring a whole new audience to appreciate Cobain.
From here, the list goes on and on. But it’s all in the hands of Courtney Love now, more or less. Hopefully this turns out OK.
Hollywood stars Lady Gaga, Conan O’Brien and Kathryn Bigelow were the top three in the artist section and others like Taylor Swift, Ashton Kutcher and Robert Pattinson closely followed behind. Sandra Bullock, Lea Michele and Marc Jacobs were also on the list.
There were some obvious ones like Barack Obama, Oprah Winfrey, and Bill Clinton. Brazilian president Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva topped the leaders list.
Ben Stiller was near the top of the heroes list for his charity StillerStrong.org, to help build schools in Haiti.
So is it fair to put Lady Gaga in a list with Barack Obama? Her fashion sense was only a small part of why the magazine put her on the list. “Lady Gaga’s art captures the period we’re in right now,” they say.
A young 20-year-old Taylor Swift made the list and Stevie Nicks reminded us why. “Taylor is writing for the universal woman and for the man who wants to know her…It’s women like her who are going to save the music business.”
It’s also a time when other celebrities actually have nice things to say about one another. Here are a few other stars weighing in on the list, according to E! Online.
Olivia Newton-John credits Michele with “inspiring young people to get involved in musical programs in schools and encouraging communities to fund them.”
New Moon director Chris Weitz raved about Pattinson, describing him as seeming “to answer Freud’s rhetorical question, ‘What do women want?’ “
Sean “Diddy” Combs was gracious about his friend Kutcher. “Most people use it to promote themselves, but [Ashton] uses Twitter to connect, to strike up conversations, to send positive messages to the millions of people who read his words. This guy will show us the future. And it’s gonna be a blast.”

Nirvana fans are either going to love this or hate this (there is no in between). The Sun is reporting that Robert Pattinson has landed the role of the Kurt Cobain biopic.
Kurt Cobain’s widow, Courtney Love, will have a large role in the production and casting of Pattinson is a key condition of her deal.
A source also tells the newspaper that Love wants Scarlett Johansson to play herself. “She is adamant Scarlett will play her,” the source tells The Sun.
Love is also reportedly speaking with director David Fincher (‘Fight Club’) to direct the biopic, which has the working title ‘All Apologies.’
In an interview with the Sun, the actor says that 2011 maybe his breakout year for an album. Pattnson does have some experience in the area, after contributing to the song “Never Think” for the original “Twilight” soundtrack.
“He is absolutely amazing,” Efron said to Access Hollywood on the Oscar red carpet last night (March 7) of the Twilight star. “I think he’s making great choices. I think he’s handling it all really well, but you know, he’s a superstar. He really deserves all this.”
From one gorgeous man to another. James Bond star Pierce Brosnan has passed on his extensive knowledge of dealing with being a Hollywood heart-throb to Twilight star Robert Pattinson on the set of their new movie, according to msn.com.
The 56-year-old British actor appears in the new film Remember Me with the young Pattinson. Brosnan admitted that it was strange for him not to be the heart-throb in the movie.
Pattinson plays piano and guitar and has contributed some tracks to the soundtracks of his movies.
“Robert is reluctant to be turned into a pop star – he takes his music very seriously,” said a source. “He is a bit wary of signing up with Cowell who is, of course, associated with X-Factor and pop.”
