Stephenie Meyer Hates Twilight - "I'm So Over It"

If you want to make millions of fans angry, just act like Stephenie Meyer did yesterday. In an interview promoting the movie she is producing, the Twilight author was asked about the series of books and she replied, "I'm so over it. I have moved so far beyond what that was." Yeah. Not a nice thing to say to all the people who continue to buy your books and pay to watch the movie and continue to generate tons of income for you. Stephenie Meyer is a terrible author who got lucky. Very lucky. She should be grateful every second for the fans and think about where she would have been if not for them. She would be trying to scratch out a living instead of producing movies and acting like a Hollywood big shot. She is going to learn that she should not be putting up her own money for producing and when she crashes and burns, she is going to be looking to the same fans she is now trashing. Make no mistake. She is trashing them. She thinks they should move beyond Twilight and move on with their lives like she did.

I said this yesterday on Twitter, but JK Rowling would never say that about Harry Potter. First, she loves the characters, and second, she would never do anything to tick off the fans who keep buying the books. As much as you might dislike Tom Cruise's choice of religion, if you decided to ask him 20 questions about Days Of Thunder, the guy would answer every single one of them with a smile and never make you feel bad about asking them or tell you he was so beyond that. I once asked Anthony Edwards about something in Top Gun and he gave the same kind of answer that Stephenie Meyer did. He came off as a jerk and someone who didn't care. Not a good trait when you are dependent on others for your success and fame.

Twilight Actor Sentenced To Probation For Peeing On Airport Floor

I'm trying to think what it must be like to have to pee so bad that you would have to pee on the floor at the airport. Not in a corner or in a plant, but right out in the middle of everyone. I know if you are drunk out of your mind and high on meth that it can be hard to read the signs to the bathroom, but you couldn't pee in your carry on bag or something other than peeing in front of everyone? Yesterday Bronson Pelletier pleaded no contest to public intoxication and was sentenced to two years probation and ordered to attend two AA classes a week after being arrested for peeing on the airport floor right in front of everyone.

Twilight Actor Bronson Pelletier Had A Bad Week

Bronson Pelletier, who stars in Twilight as one of the Wolf Pack has moved into rarefied celebrity air. He has been arrested twice in a week which puts him right up there with such criminal masterminds as DMX, Jenelle Evans, and Katt Williams. You might think that Lindsay Lohan must have been arrested twice in a week before. Nope. She has managed to be arrested twice within two weeks on two separate occasions, but has never managed to crack the one week barrier.

Bronson was arrested last week for meth and coke possession at a bar after he became aggressive and the staff called police. Then, two days ago he was arrested at LAX after police found him peeing at the airport gate rather than the big rooms designed for peeing that are scattered all over the airport. Bronson had previously been hauled off a plane by police and told to sober up before he could fly. Obviously didn't. Guess he is not figuring on getting much more work now that Twilight has ended.

Taylor Lautner Dating Again

After what seems like a really long spell since Taylor Lautner has gone out with anyone, he was spotted with his high school girlfriend, Sara Hicks. Sara is a cheerleader for the LA Clippers and has known Taylor forever. I think Taylor dated Lily Collins but it was so fast, that no one even noticed. Remember when he dated Selena Gomez? Oh, and when the tabloids would die every second when he was dating Taylor Swift. I think Taylor seems very uncomfortable dating.

Lions Gate Buys Summit - Wants More Twilight

Variety sends out these little blurbs to my phone when something interesting happens. Most of the time it is yawn inducing stuff or so hard to translate their Ted Casablanca speak while I'm drinking that I just give up and hit delete. Yesterday I got one that said Lions Gate bought Summit. The first thing that came to my head was they wanted the Twilight library. It turns out they want way more. Lions Gate said they are not finished making Twilight movies. There is that little problem of having no more books to adapt. Oh, and none of the original cast signed for any more of the movies. Honestly, I think it might be tough to get Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart back. The rest of the cast? Throw some money their way and they will come back. It is possible that with new writers and not confined to the no action and Harlequin romance style of the first 5 installments that the movies could bring in a whole new audience. Or they could turn into American Pie 6-13.

The other idea is to bring Twilight to television. I think that is way too much overkill. There are so many vampire and supernatural shows on television, including a show called Supernatural.

Fake Taylor Lautner People Magazine Cover Hits The Internet

Late yesterday a fake People Magazine cover hit the internet and was immediately re-tweeted to millions of people. The cover, which alleges that Taylor is gay and coming out to the magazine incorporates some other parts of a People Magazine cover from 2006. To me this is way worse than a death hoax because as Jon Bon Jovi showed last week it is pretty easy to prove you are not dead. How does someone prove they are not gay?

Michelle Trachtenberg Says She Could Have Been Bella

Do I think Michelle Trachtenberg was considered for Bella in the Twilight series? Yes. Do I think she was offered the role as she implied? I don't think so. Michelle told US Weekly that because she is just one of a handful of "pale girls" in Hollywood that she was considered. She then makes it seem like she was offered the role but that because she was filming Buffy at the time that she could not fit the movie into her schedule. "I guess schedules never worked out. I already have Buffy. I've already done the vampire thing." Yeah, but all those seasons of Buffy combined would not give you the salary of anything after the second Twilight movie. Plus, you will probably never be as famous as Kristen Stewart now. I think Michelle got passed over for it. I think the producers probably could not afford her at the time. They went super cheap and super unknown for the most part. I think Michelle is a little bit jealous. Yes, she had Buffy, but they will probably make a new one in a couple of years and everyone will forget she was in it.

Nicole Richie actually having to pay for something. Of course she was getting paid to do it, so it is not really like she was paying for it.

Two Seizures Reported During Breaking Dawn Birth Scene

You would think with the massive headlines that I have seen that people all over the country were having seizures during every showing of Breaking Dawn. So far there have been two. Two is too many, but I bet in all the showings of the movies all over the world that two people have probably got up and been sick in a bathroom too. It is interesting that both of the seizure victims were both men. Here is what I think happened. In at least one of the cases the man and the woman had just started dating. He agreed to go see the movie and then realized he was the only guy in a theatre filled with women who was there voluntarily. The only other guys there had committed various infractions ranging from cheating to watching football in church. Wanting to get out of it, the guy had a seizure.

Nikki Reed Says Twilight Cast Are Not All Best Friends

Nikki Reed has some pretty harsh words for her Twilight co-stars in the new issue of Seventeen. She says that when they first started making the series everyone was all friendly and fun and it was like being away at camp. I think a lot of that was the fact most of the actors involved had been in very few projects and were not spoiled or divas yet. Nikki says that after the first movie came out then everyone changed. "Success came along and changed the dynamic. We're not all best friends, and we're not all going to hang out together after the final movie is done. It was very, very sad. Let's just leave it at that."

What happens is that egos get in the way and the stars of the movie start thinking they are better than the rest of the cast and the bad actors are jealous of the people that can act and then people get jealous of paychecks and who has the biggest trailer and people forget what it was like in the beginning. Since most of the cast can't act anyway it won't be long before many are right back where they were before the series.

Random Photos Part One

Three parts today.

Lindsay Lohan out last night and actually dressed up. That is a shocker. Must have wanted to put on clothes after being naked all day for Hef.
Randomness. Martin Scorsese and Dave Navarro.
Never before seen photos of Princess Diana and Charles on their honeymoon.

It's Hammer time for Rose McGowan.
Rumer Willis and about 10 new tattoos. Considering she only had one or two last week, I'm guessing they are either fake or she has a crush on a tattoo artist.
Long time no see anywhere, Renee Zellweger.
Shenae Grimes partying last night.
Sarah Jessica Parker points out the thing growing on Elizabeth Hurley's head.
Well, they did it for Harry Potter so, I guess they should do it for Twilight.

At Least An R Rating Would Have Mad The Movie More Interesting

Kristen Stewart has given an interview to Glamour Magazine. In the interview she says that the original sex scene that she and Robert Pattinson shot had to be re-cut because the movie originally got an R Rating. Not wanting to alienate the 10 year olds who love the books and movies, the scene was cut to make it as bland and boring as the acting talent in the movie. I don't know if I can handle two more of these movies. At least if they had kept the sex scene intact it would have made for something to look forward to in the movie. It is hard to believe they could make anything R rated. The books are not even R rated. The fights are not R rated. The birth of the baby/vampire will probably be no worse than something from daytime television. They should have gone dark and gone for an R and really pushed the envelope. Instead it will be the same old same old and by same old same old I mean boring with some of the worst acting this side of a CSI episode.

Kiowa Gordon Busted For DUI And Warrants

Twilight actor Kiowa Gordon was arrested in Arizona yesterday on suspicion of DUI. He was also charged with failing to appear in court over a previous arrest for giving booze to minors and possessing drug paraphernalia. All of this comes of course just before the release of the next Twilight movie. Are we at the end of these things yet? Will there some a point when they are finished and I will never have to see the word Twi-hard again. I wonder if the next movie will do as well. To me, the books are akin to a boy band whose popularity diminishes as the audience gets older. Even though there are kids replacing the original fans, it is not enough to keep the fame and they eventually go bye bye bye. You like how I did that? Me too. So, it will be interesting to see if the demand stays the same for the product, especially since the acting is so atrocious. Speaking of which, I saw the preview for the Taylor Lautner movie Abducted. He is still an awful actor but give him kudos for picking a movie where he does not have to speak much and the movie actually looks interesting.

An Open Letter To Taylor Lautner

Dear Taylor,

Right now I am sure you are probably sitting outside in your garage looking at your new 2012 Mercedes SLS AMG. It is a fine automobile and I am sure some would say worth the $200K price tag. It was also a nice touch that you brought your parents along so they could try and haggle for you. You know, because it always feels good to get the dealer to come down from that $212K price tag down to $200K.

What kind of gas mileage do you get on that thing? Is that something that you are going to have to get premium gas for? Oh, sorry, where was I? Oh yeah. The reason I am writing you this is because I fear you should hang on to your money and not be spending it willy nilly on big purchases. Buy a house and pay cash. In fact, you can buy several of those. The car thing though? I want you to have a car. I just want to caution you that this big huge money train you are riding might come to a very quick end. I know you think people are going to hire you forever, but right now they are only hiring you because you bring the Twihards with you. After that is over, you are more likely to go the way of the boy band than the act which will continue delivering for the next 30 years. There are way more O-Towns in the world than there are Take That's.

I just don't want you sitting down at a Twilight convention 15 years from now selling autographed pictures for $20 and shirtless for $50 wondering where all the money went and all the attention and fame. Go buy your fun car, but try to leave it at just that one and when you feel like buying another, go watch yourself in Valentine's Day and ask yourself whether some acting lessons might not be a better investment.

The Hand Model & Twilight Money

When you are a hand model I guess it is easy to see why you would want some fame. That being said, I think hand model Kimbra Hickey needs to tone it down a notch. I know you have never heard of Kimbra but if you have ever seen the cover of Twilight, those are her hands holding the apple.

She got paid $300 for the job but wants a big piece of the Twilight money. So, she tells everyone she sees who is reading the book that they are her hands. She carries an apple in her purse with her at all times and she has been known to hang out at bookstores by her home to remind people. She is doing all of this because she wants to get into acting. Uh huh. She also wants a piece of those Twilight conventions. I bet she makes more in an hour at those things then she did for the book cover. How desperate do you have to be for attention that you hang out at bookstores and bug people on trains. That just screams of desperation. Can you imagine if you came out of a movie and some guy was standing there who said did you see me in the movie? I was waiter #4. I'm happy to autograph your ticket stub.

Four parts today.

Reader Photo #1
Reader Photo #2
Selena Gomez and Leighton Meester thumb wrestle while shooting their new movie. Apparently the loser has
to clean the teeth of the other.
A flying car is a reality. This one was given the green light to start production. It costs $170K which seems expensive until you realize that it is a plane and a car and there are several cars that cost more.
In Berlin, you don't get the Toy Story 3 stars, but you do get the dolls.
Not appealing.
Xavier Samuel and Ashley Greene keep doing the Europe Twilight premieres. At least in Belgium they got to booze it up. Ashley next gets to star with Miley Cyrus in a movie. Yeah, that is a career booster.
Wow. Virginia Madsen is looking better than she has in a long time.
I'm probably the only person I know who misses the Wayne Brady Show.
The new Wonder Woman. It kind of feels like a Michael Jackson tribute concert starring Corey Feldman.
Yoko Ono - New York City
