Woodley is only the latest in a string of celebrities to endorse the empowerment cause.
Like a number of her fellow next gen Hollywood actresses, The Descendants star Shailene Woodley is conscious of the messages she sends to young people and young women in particular. Woodley is on the verge of superstardom, with teen novel adaptations Divergent and The Fault in Our Stars both due later this year. And since she’s all about empowerment for young women, you can bet that she has an opinion on other members of the genre.
Woodley thinks that movies should send a strong message of empowerment.
Speaking for TIME, Woodley took issue with one infamous piece of teen fiction in particular – Stephanie Meyer’s infamous Twilight books. Bella isn’t exactly known as the most looked-up to female protagonist and Woodley explains why: “Twilight, I’m sorry, is about a very unhealthy, toxic relationship. [The protagonist Bella] falls in love with this guy and the second he leaves her, her life is over and she’s going to kill herself! What message are we sending to young people? That is not going to help this world evolve.”
Twilight alternate cast, with Jennifer Lawrence and Vanessa Hudgens seems pretty strong to us.
Welcome to the latest instalment in our ‘Alternate Movie Cast’ series! Last time we invited you to think about what the Harry Potter films would have been like if other actors who had auditioned for the roles had won them instead of the cast that we’ve come to know and love. This time, we’re taking a look at actors and actresses who auditioned for roles in the movie adaptions of Stephanie Meyers’ Twilight series. Obviously the coveted roles of Edward and Bella went to Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart and, as we all know, the dramatic romance that ensued offscreen between R-Pattz and K-Stew was almost as intense as the one onscreen. We wouldn’t have had it any other way, but imagine if these other celebs had won out instead of the tumultuous indie pair.
Jennifer Lawrence was upset she missed out on the role of Bella Swan
Jennifer Lawrence and Kristen Stewart are often compared to one another as both are young Hollywood actresses around the same age. However, did you know that J-Law is a huge Twilight fan and did in fact audition for the role of Bella Swan? Jen admitted “I love the ‘Twilight’ books. I’m not even ashamed to say it, they are like methamphetamine to me. So when I heard Kristen Stewart say, “I only read the first one”, I was like, “Oh man,” because she wasn’t a huge fan of the books”. We’re sure that Twi-hard Jennifer was pretty upset at the time, but she’s since gone on to star as Katniss Everdeen in The Hunger Games as well as winning an Oscar for her performance in Silver Linings Playbook. We think she’s probably recovered from the blow of losing out on the role of Bella.

Kristen Stewart's poem to Robert Pattinson is published in Marie Claire magazine.
It’s no secret that Kristen Stewart is often portrated as an angsty soul who bears the weight of the world on her shoulders, but we weren't expecting the 23-year-old to start writing deep poetry!
Kristen Stewart's poem was revealed in Marie Claire
We shouldn’t be too hard on her for this, she does have her fair share of problems. The whole cheating scandal was picked up by the world's media and it wasn't very fun for anyone involved.
Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart have got big but perhaps very different years ahead. Next month sees the release of Dior Homme Eau for Men - a new fragrance that the French fashion giant plans to shift with the help of the 27-year-old British star. Since its arrival on YouTube, the black-and-white commercial for the fragrance starring Pattinson has racked up 15 million views.
Robert Pattinson is the new face of Dior.
"I like trying to do ambitious things," Pattinson tells the Wall Street Journal of the collaboration, "That's what got me really enthusiastic about the campaign, that [Dior] wasn't shying away from anything."
The 23-year-old actress is making a big career change.
Kristen Stewart might be a terrible bowler, but the woman knows how to make a comeback. After taking a break in 2013, following the success of the Twilight saga, Stewart is back on the Guantanamo Bay-set drama Camp X-Ray, currently playing at Sundance Film Festival. Camp X-Ray has received mixed reviews, but Stewart’s performance as a guard at Gitmo seems to be almost universally liked. It’s a bit of a surprise, since her role as Bella Swan became a universal punch line in bad movie jokes during the Twilight years. Maybe that was why Stewart was so nervous to take on the new and radically different role this time around.
Stewart's break in 2013 meant that audiences could get some distance from her stint as Bella Swan.
"I was so nervous when I first started working and preparing because I didn't think that people would believe me or think that I looked tough in a uniform," she said for MTV News at Sundance "that I could do that job, that I could wrangle detainees that are massive and scary."
Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson have given up ownership of the Los Feliz mansion.
Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson have given the signal that their days of lovin' are probably in the past after the former couple's LA lovenest was sold to The Big Bang Theory actor Jim Parsons for $6.37 million, according to the LA Times.
Robert Pattinson Has Sold The LA Home He Shared With Kristen Stewart.
It seems as though the former Twilight co-stars' love was too hot to handle, as the 1.5 acre Spanish colonial dreamhouse failed to attract a buyer at the original asking price of $6.75 million when it was first listed in October. The immaculate 1922 hacienda boasts three bedrooms and three-and-a-half-bathrooms as well as a grand courtyard, palm trees, a swimming pool, a waterfall and fountains.
Kristen Stewart's role as US guard 'Amy Cole' in Peter Sattler's 'Camp X-Ray' is a far-cry away form her days as wannabe vampire 'Bella' in the film franchise 'Twilight', but the actress is triumphantly praised for the portrayal.
Kristen Stewart needn't be worried of being typecast following her role as 'Bella' in the teen vampire romance film-franchise 'Twilight'. The 23 year-old has a full transformation, like her fans have never seen her before, as she stars in the gripping drama 'Camp X-Ray'.
Kristen Stewart as US guard 'Amy Cole'
Peter Sattler wrote and directed the film, which also stars Peyman Moaadi, John Carroll Lynch, Lane Garrison and Joseph Julian Soria, and it is set on the temporary detention facility Camp X-Ray on Guantanamo Bay.
The Guantanamo Bay-set drama is the talk of Sundance, but Stewart has admitted that she was worried it could be a career-ruiner
Kristen Stewart will look to cast off the shackles of her Twilight past once more in the new film Camp X Ray. The film premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this week and has so far received relatively positive reviews (it currently holds an 8.1 rating on IMdb), yet Kristen has admitted that it is a film that she thought may bomb thanks to her unconvincing performance.
Kristen's performance has been singled out for praise by some critics
The actress spoke to MTV News this week about her concerns about the film, concerns that she was not a worthy enough actress to play the conflicted young soldier stationed at Guantanamo Bay who goes on to befriend an inmate of eight years. The young actress has admitted that during film and before the film premiered at the festival this week that she was worried people would struggle to buy into her character and that they were likely to write her off straight away.

It's that time again - a week of innovative, independent films. Oh, goody!
With the Twilight franchise firmly behind her, Kristen Stewart has moved on to bigger and better things – namely the Guantanamo Bay drama Camp X-Ray, which debuted during the first day of the Sundance Film Festival on Friday. Other titles from Friday include “Whiplash,” the surprise hit starring Miles Teller and Aaron Paul’s first post-Breaking Bad project, Hellion.
Aaron Paul stars in the coming of age drama Hellion.
The film is so far receiving moderate reviews – according to The Huffington Post, there are some things that work and some that don’t and Stewart’s performance is simply described as “fine”. Stewart plays Amy Cole – a private stationed at Guantanamo, whose job it is to make sure the detainees stay alive. According to the Huff Post review, the film carries a strong message, but the execution makes it slightly boring and too contained within its setting. Still, it’s probably a good thing that Kristen Stewart has moved so far away from the teen movie genre. Maybe.
Are the 'Twilight' co-stars still sweet on each other?
Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart are rumoured to be rekindling their romance after their difficult May split. The former Twilight co-stars reportedly talk all the time via Skype and text despite being thousands of miles away from each other.
Rob & Kristen's Romance Had An Intoxicating Effect.
"Kristen and Rob have been keeping in touch by Skyping," a friend of Kristen's told Hollywood Life. "They make sure to Skype at least once a week and text in between, and send each other funny photos. Being away from each other has actually made them closer."
Several films due to be premiered at the Sundance Film Festival are generating a hefty amount of conversation
The Sundance Film Festival is the place to be for young, aspiring filmmakers hoping to crack into the hotly-contested business of the movies. By the end of the film festival, which this year runs from 16-26 January, there are always a selection of film titles that are revived for the following awards season, and this year people are so eager for the celluloid showcase that a number of early contenders for festival glory have been marked before their debut release.
The dark God's Pocket stars Philip Seymour Hoffman and Eddie Marsan
In thirty years the film has discovered some of the most promising filmmakers out there and continues to deliver, from Roland Joffé’s The Killing Fields in the festival's opening year (1985) to last year's most notable success; Fruitvale Station, the debut feature length from Ryan Coogler. With another 120 films to get through this year it seems more than likely that at least one of the releases will be leaving Park City, Utah, with more than a few skiing lessons and a commemorative t-shirt.
Take a look at Sundance 2014 - the pick of the bunch.
Sundance 2014 promises to be as varied as ever, with a healthy mix of world cinema, documentary film and Hollywood output. Celebrating its 30th anniversary, the festival will run from January 16-26 and, by the time it closes its doors, will have showcased 117 feature-length projects, 16 of which are world premieres.
Philip Seymour Hoffman and Eddie Marsan in God's Pocket
"This year's lineup is reflective of film-makers wanting to tell new stories, and we're seeing a broader range of characters and ages," Trevor Groth, the director of programming, told the Hollywood Reporter. "A lot of times, the typical Sundance film-maker has a younger perspective and tells stories of what they know. But this year we're seeing more stories about people who are older."

The creepy Twilight doll - also known as Chuckesmee - is finally revealed.
The creepy Twilight doll known only as Chuckesmee was supposed to serve as the love child of Bella and Edward in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2, the final chapter in the vampire franchise.
Fans have speculated over the doll for months, which was first mentioned by cast-members around the time Breaking Dawn came out though never made it into the final cut of the film - which is jyst as well, because it's without a doubt the most terrifying thing we've ever seen.
Now, thanks to special feature from the Twilight Blu-Ray/DVD collection that's out this week, Chuckesmee is finally unleashed on the innocent public. Named after a combination of evil doll Chucky and Renesmee Cullen, the doll was said to have genuinely terrified cast-members and director Bill Condon called it "a giant misfire" and "a horror show," instead casting Mackenzie Foy to play the real life daughter of Edward and Bella.

Liberty Ross describes marriage breakdown after cheating revelation as 'the worst'.
It's been more than a year since photographs surfaced of her husband kissing Kristen Stewart and now Liberty Ross has finally found the courage to speak out about her heartbreaking ordeal.
The model's life was thrown into turmoil in 2012 when images emerged of her husband, director Rupert Sanders, enjoying a romantic tryst with actress Stewart who starred in his movie Snow White And The Huntsman. "I have no words to describe what we went through," Liberty told Vanity Fair about her struggles in the relationship following the incident. "It was horrible. It was really the worst."
After it happened, both guilty parties made public apologies - with Kristen mainly aiming it at her then-boyfriend and 'Twilight' co-star Robert Pattinson. However, it wasn't enough for Liberty, who admitted she had to estrange herself for a little while to cope with the pain and media attention and ended up living in a house borrowed by a friend of her brother Atticus along with her children Skyla and Tennyson.

It was revealed by Harvey Weinstein this week that Kristen Stewart was given $500,000 for a Hurricane Sandy charity for spending time with a rich prince
Kristen Stewart managed to earn half a million dollars in only 15 minutes, and if that wasn't impressive enough, the money she made was donated straight to charity. The Twilight star caught the attention of an unnamed Middle Eastern Prince, who was so taken with the actress that he forked out the huge sum for just 15 minutes of her time.
Just $500K can buy you 15 minutes with Kristen Stewart
According to film producer Harvey Weinstein, Kristen was helping to raise money for the victims of Hurricane Sandy when Weinstein was approached about spending some one-on-one time with Kristen by the mysterious, ultra-rich Middle Eastern monarch. Initially dismissing the requests, Kristen soon caught wind of what was happening and was actually willing to meet with the high-paying Prince, leading Weinstein to broker a deal to arrange the meet-up. Sounds seedy doesn't it?
Ben Affleck visited Lindsay Lohan whilst in rehab to advise her on how to remain sober and on her career.

Michele lost her boyfriend and Glee co-star over a month ago and has attempted to remain out of the public eye since. Monteith died on July 13th, aged just 31, he was found dead in his Vancouver hotel room. The British Columbia coroner ruled his cause of death was a lethal mix of heroin and alcohol.
Could Rob's flirting with Michelle Rodriguez the night before have had something to do with it?
Despite Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 2 sweeping the board at last night's Teen Choice Awards ceremony, neither of the movie's stars - Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart - were in attendance, presumably to avoid any kind of awkward encounter.
Kristen & Rob Dated For Years, Is This Really The End For Their Love?
The former couple, whose lovelife echoed that of their on screen human/vampire romance, weren't at the event to pick up even one of their seven Teen Choice surfboards. Ironically, the pair were nominated for 'Best Romance' for their steamy on screen relationship but as the franchise wound up with its final instalment, it looks like the real-life couple will never been seen again either.
The 2013 Teen Choice Awards, held last night (11th August) saw the likes of the Twilight cast; Pretty Little Liars; The Vampire Diaries and Glee taking home a full sized surf board as a trophy.
The 2013 Teen Choice was held last night, Sunday 11th August, at the Gibson Amphitheatre in Universal City. The event was star studded with attendees photographed on the red carpet including Selena Gomez, Lucy Hale, Brittany Snow, Michelle Rodriguez, Chloe Grace Moretz, Cher Lloyd and Naya Rivera.

The Teen Choice Awards are an annual event held to celebrate what teenagers think deserves recognition from the world of film, TV, fashion and music. It was first held in 1999 and has gradually grown increasing popular with the passing years. This year, according to the Teen Choice Award Website, over 150 million teenagers voted on the various categories.

Lindsay Lohan commented on Kristen Stewart's outburst at a photographer, referring to the 'Twilight' star's past indiscretions whilst guest hosting 'Chelsea Lately'. Lohan was released from rehab last week and appeared to be on good form whilst filming the talk show.
Lindsay Lohan, whilst filming Chelsea Lately, was back to fighting form - quite literally. The 27-year-old actress may have just left rehab but she's not holding back when it comes to Kristen Stewart.

Last week, Stewart was caught on camera swearing at a TMZ photographer in L.A. Lohan, whilst guest hosting the talk show, felt the need to comment indirectly on Stewart's limited acting range: "I'm just excited that Kristen Stewart, you know, finally showed some emotion." Then on the Twilight stars personal life, which included a relationship with Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders, on which Lohan said: "I will say this, of course she hates photographers, they got a picture of her kissing a married man in a Mini Cooper."
Kristen Stewart has been caught on camera swearing at a paparazzo in L.A. The 23-year-old Twilight actress told the cameraman "you don't deserve to breathe the same air I do".
Kristen Stewart told a paparazzo he was "a piece of sh*t" who didn't "deserve to breathe the same air". The footage, which has since been leaked to TMZ, shows a different side to the Stewart. However, the video is clearly edited and only shows Stewart's reaction as opposed to the paparazzo's, probably inappropriate, questions.

The footage starts with, presumably, one of Stewart's minions waiting outside a L.A. building, where Stewart is hiding behind a gate and is obscured by its mesh. The paparazzo asks Stewart "why are you saying f**k off?" to which Stewart replies "because you're a piece of sh*t". She continues making friends by saying "you don't deserve to breathe the same air I do". She continued to insult the paparazzo before confirming her identity by leaving the safety of the gate to enter a car.
Katy Perry and Robert Pattinson are simply "friends" and that she has no wish to "disrespect" Kristen Stewart. Perry opened up in a magazine interview about her friendship with Pattinson and Stewart, relationships and John Mayer.
Katy Perry has set the record straight when it comes to her relationship with Robert Pattinson. It seems highly unlikely, judging from her recent interview with Elle magazine, that the 'Part of Me' singer is having a liaison with the Twilight star.

She felt it was particularly important to emphasis the amicability of her friendship with Kristen Stewart, Pattinson's former co-star and ex-girlfriend. After rumours circulated relating to Perry's alleged involvement with Pattinson, Perry text Stewart to clear up any misunderstanding. In the Elle interview, she said "I sent her a text message saying: 'I know you've seen all this stuff but you know I would never disrespect you. I'm not that person.'" She went on to verify that she was "just trying to be a friend to him" and commented on the unfair assumptions the media made simply because she happened to be female and comforting her friend.
Actress Angelina Jolie has been revealed to be Hollywood's highest paid actress of the last year by Forbes, with Jennifer Lawrence and Kristen Stewart far behind in earnings.
Despite Angelina Jolie's last film, The Tourist, having been released three years ago and underperforming, the actress has still topped Forbes' list of the highest paid actresses in Hollywood between June 2012 and June 2013, with an estimated $33 million (£21.6m) in the past year. Incredibly, her last year's salary is $13 million (£8.5m) more than the previous year and millions ahead of this year's second highest paid actress, Jennifer Lawrence, who starred in the Hunger Games and won an Oscar for Silver Linings Playbook.
A Multi-Million Dollar Grin: Jolie Is Richest Actress In Tinsel Town.
Twilight actress Kristen Stewart came third in the list of highest paid actresses, having earned $22 million (£14.4m) this year after topping the list last year. The blockbuster actress is looking to scale down her movie roles after the infamous Vampire saga, focussing on smaller roles such as in On the Road.

Angelina Jolie is the top of the Forbes highest earning actresses list. Jolie has not been seen in a big-budget movie for three years so her position is slightly surprising. Also in the top five are: Jennifer Lawrence, Kristen Stewart, Jennifer Aniston and Emma Stone.
Angelina Jolie returns to the top of the Forbes highest paid actress list after a three year break since her last big-budget movie.

That's not to suggest Jolie has been lazing about, quite the contrary, she has written and directed her first film The Land of Blood and Honey; opted for a double mastectomy following the discovery she carries the BRCA1 gene and wrote a New York Times article on her operation.
The Mother Monster could have made more too, if she wasn't forced to drop out of her world tour early to undergo surgery.
Lady GaGa is once again the top earning celebrity under 30-years-old according to Forbes Magazine's annual compilation of the top earning staring in Hollywood. The 27-year-old topped a mostly female top ten, amassing an estimated $80 million from the period of June 2012 to June 2013, beating her nearest rival by over $20 million. The singer could have made more too, if it wasn't for the unscheduled cancellation of the end of her 'Born This Way Ball' world tour in January after she was forced to undergo hip surgery.
Lady Gaga could have made even more, not that she needed to
Her closest competitor was Canadian teen sensation Justin Bieber, the highest place of only three males to make the list. Bieber managed to earn a reported $58m thanks to endorsements, touring, a movie and a string of releases over the past year.
In a woman-dominated list, Lady Gaga has emerged as the highest earning entertainer under 30-years-old
Lady GaGa has been a little absent from the music scene and the world of entertainment recently - put that down to her recent hip surgery - but that still hasn't stopped her from becoming the highest earning entertainer aged under thirty in the world. The 'Bad Romance' singer topped a female-dominated list, and Forbes even goes on to mention that the singer could have earned even more if she didn't have to drop out of her recent tour because of her surgery.
The Mother Monster topped the Top Earners Under 30 list for a second year
The singer has made an estimated $80 million over the course of the last year, ranging from June 2012 and June 2013. Her 'Born This Way Ball Tour' grossed $168 million before it was abruptly ended in January, with the singer also making a killing from her cosmetics range, album and singles sales and various other business ventures.

Over it, that's what they both seem to be.
It’s been two months since the Kristen Stewart/Robert Pattinson breakup, but apparently the split is still hanging heavy on Stewart’s mind. Or rather, there is always someone around to remind her by, say, vandalizing her car. The On The Road actress received a nasty little note, written on her car. But while most people would settle for the classic “Wash Me” missive, the anonymous writer chose to pen the words “I [heart] Rob” in the dust on the hood.
Following the breakup, Stewart has been living it up.
The truth of that statement is questionable though. While unnamed sources for Entertainmentwise claim that the actress still hasn’t quite gotten over her old flame, her exploits of late seem to suggest otherwise. The singer has just returned to California from her trip to Paris for Fashion Week. And while Paris might be the city of love, Stewart seemed to be coping fine on her own as she lit up the red carpet at the Zuhair Murad and Chanel shows. The past few days have also seen Stewart getting a spontaneous ink job at Nashville’s Pride & Glory tattoo parlor.
As rumours that Rob Pattinson is dating Elvis Presley's granddaughter grow wilder, Kristen has to contend with some rather crushing car vandalism.
It's safe to say that actress Kristen Stewart is going through a pretty emotionally troublesome time, having split with her long-term, on/off boyfriend and fellow Twilight co-star Rob Pattinson in May only to now hear reports that he's been publically moving on with Elvis Presley's granddaughter and Stewart-lookalike Riley Keough.
A Single Kristen Stewart Tries To Move On With Her Life Despite Reports Rob Is Dating Riley.
Not only having to contend with her crushing heartache, Stewart has also recently been the victim of a cruel jibe after someone wrote "I [heart] Rob" in the grime on the front of her pickup truck whilst she was out running errands in Hollywood. She and Pattinson split in May after a four year relationship that echoed the onscreen romance of their Twilight characters, Bella and Edward.

Robert Pattinson, star of the 'Twilight' franchise is rumoured to be dating none other than Riley Keough, Elvis Presley's granddaughter.
The actor who played Edward Cullen and the target of many a frenzied tweenage fan melt-down, Robert Pattinson, is set to be back in the game; only weeks after his split with Twilight co-star and long-term on/off girlfriend, Kristen Stewart. The Daily Mail reports that the pair were spotted speeding around L.A in Rob's pickup truck over the past weekend.
Robert Pattinson: Is He Playing The Field After Splitting From Kristen?
The relationship, described as "short-term lust right now rather than long-term love" by The Mail's source, is rather too out in the open for heart-broken Stewart, who is said to be "devastated" that her long-time lover has moved on from her since their May split. After the initial reports that Rob was dating 'I Kissed A Girl' singer Katy Perry, this last rumour is just a bit too painful for the 23- year-old. Keough and Stewart are said to be good friends after meeting on the set of 2010's The Runaways movie where they co-starred. Keough was certainly close enough the On The Road actress to be invited to her 23rd birthday celebrations - she was pictured attending Stewart's Mexican cantina birthday party.

The actor is rumoured to be seeing Riley Keough, the King of Rock's granddaughter and Lisa Marie Presley's daughter
It wasn't long ago that everyone was talking about Robbert Pattinson and Katy Perry potentially being an item now that the who R-Patz-K-Stew love affair is over, but before those rumours even got the chance to turn into something more concrete, Pattinson has been spotted with another young lady on his arm and set the rumour mills in motion once more. The woman in question is actress/model Riley Keough, who is the granddaughter of the King of Rock Elvis Presley.
Rob has moved on fast, we think
The Twilight actor was seen driving back to his Los Angeles mansion last weekend with a mystery woman in the passenger seat, with the New York Daily News identifying the mystery woman as Keough - who is Lisa Marie Presley's daughter and the step-daughter of Michael Jackson. The two were seen in Rob's red pickup truck on Sunday (June 30) making their way back to his house after apparently spending the night together in town, although nothing else is known about their blossoming relationship.
Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart have apparently called time on their relationship.
Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart have split up again, according to fresh reports over the weekend. Sources tell People magazine that the young couple called it quits after more than three years of dating, though representatives for both could not be reached.
The news follows online reports that Pattinson failed to show up to a celebration of his 27th birthday, arranged by Stewart. Prior to that, the pair had appeared to be going strong and were spotted together at the Met Gala in New York before they flew back to Los Angeles on May 8. They celebrated Stewart's 23th birthday together and held hands at the Coachella music festival - this after the infamous cheating scandal that rocked their relationship in 2012. Stewart had a brief fling with Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders last July and made a very public apology to Pattinson. The duo reunited less than two months later and appeared to be back to normal, until now.
An insider privy to the latest split says it wouldn't be a surprise should the famous pair get back together in the near future. Stewart is about to begin work on comedy-drama The Big Shoe with Elizabeth Banks and Jim Sturgess, while Pattinson will star alongside Carey Mulligan in James Marsh's thriller Hold On To Me.

The couple seem to have had their latest breakup.
Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson – after everyone thought they’d never hear the two names together in a sentence, the stars had a miracle reconciliation, only to break up again, it would seem. According to People Magazine, after a turbulent four-year-long relationship, which saw the actors’ rise to fame, survived the scandal of Stewart’s infidelity and seemed to have continued afresh this year, the pair have called it quits. The news hasn’t yet been confirmed, as reps for the actors haven’t been reached for comment.
The breakup seems to have been brewing for a while, with reports that, instead of celebrating with his girlfriend, the Water for Elephants actor bailed on the plans she had made for them. Beer and pool tables have been mentioned, so it does look like Kristen went all out – the snub probably wasn’t pleasant.
But before that it all looked like sunshine and happiness, as the duo attended the Met Costume Gala together earlier this month and they partied it up at Coachella. So there are two possible versions of this: either Rob and Kristen change their minds about each other with lightning speed, or we’re not getting the full picture of their relationship. The latter seems more likely though, since both of them try not to address their relationship too often and remain coy about their personal lives.

Robert Pattinson really splashed out for Kristen Stewart's 23rd birthday.
Robert Pattinson went the whole hog for girlfriend Kristen Stewart's 23rd birthday this week. Forget Bentleys, Porsches, BMWs, mansions, boats and helicopters, because R-Patz bought the love of his life a pen. Yep, a pen.
However, it's not just ANY pen, it's a limited-edition fountain pen with a barrel identical to the dashboard in the earliest Bentley automobile - one of only 40 in the world, according to the UK's Daily Star. Furthermore, its estimated price was around £30,000, that's $46,000! "Rob decided to go big for her birthday this year," a source said. We think Kristen would have preferred a car. A real nice car.
Anyway, maybe Pattinson paid for the swanky party thrown for Stewart at Malo's Mexican restaurant in Los Angeles this week. According to X17, the pair dined with about 40 friends, including Spring Breakers star Ashley Benson. After dinner, the reunited couple stopped by No Vacancy at Hotel Jupiter where Hanson was having its album party release. REMEMBER HANSON? "They weren't overly affectionate or anything, but at points they were standing together as they talked to friends," a source told E! News. Perez Hilton said the couple are "100% back on".
Robert Pattinson is ready to put Kristen Stewart's infidelity behind him after realising the actress is the girl for him.
The couple briefly split up last year after Kristen cheated on him with married director Rupert Sanders but after spending time apart recently while he filmed a movie in Australia, Robert has realised Kristen is the one for him.
A source told America's OK! magazine: "If he fell for someone else, he knows he'd always be thinking about Kristen, what she was doing, who she was with. The truth is, he needs to be with her and she clearly feels the same about him.

Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart's final Twilight movie picked up seven awards at the Razzies, the cynical precursor to the Oscars
The night before Hollywood got glammed up in back-patting mode at the Oscars, the annual Razzies ceremony – an antidote to the self-congratulatory narcissism of the Oscars – took a more cynical look at the big movies of the last 12 months. Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart’s Twilight – Breaking Dawn Part 2 was the big winner (well, loser) of the evening, landing seven of the awards.
Kristen Stewart ‘won’ Worst Actress though we’re unclear as to whether or not this had anything to do with her sporting a pair of crutches at the Oscars the next evening. She told Anne Hathaway that she’d trodden on glass, but the sight of her hobbling around in her Oscars gown will certainly bump up the sympathy levels. Stewart’s co-star Taylor Lautner also ‘won’ a Razzie for his performance in the final Twilight movie and although Robert Pattinson didn’t quite get his name engraved on one of the awards, as such, the movie still landed the ‘Worst Screen Ensemble’ award, Reuters reports.
Rihanna also got a pasting, for her role in the frankly terrible ‘Battleship’ and of course, the Razzis is simply no longer The Razzies if Adam Sandler doesn’t get a look-in. Last year, he famously took home all ten of the awards. Except no one actually takes the awards home, because naturally, they don’t actually attend the evening of humiliation. The Razzies weren’t done with trying to take down Sandler’s career just yet, though. This year, he landed two golden raspberry statuettes: Worst Actor and Worst Screenplay, for his comedy That’s My Boy.
Kristen Stewart appeared distant and disinterested while presenting at the Oscars 2013
When movie fans look back on this year's Academy Awards, Kristen Stewart may well be at the forefront of their minds. The Twilight actress, fresh from winning the Razzie for Worst Actress, appeared severely dishevelled while presenting an award with Harry Potter actor Daniel Radcliffe.
Stewart, who was hardly out of the headlines last year after a well-documented cheating scandal, limped on-stage and muttered her lines. Stewart appeared distant and even failed to come in on-time to introduce the nominees - leaving Radcliffe looking pretty uncomfortable. Of course, the Twitter universe gave the actress a severe beating, with one user joking, "Kristen Stewart looks like one the chicks Liam Neeson leaves behind in Taken," and another saying, "A hobbling, disheveled Kristen Stewart is scarier than any vampire movie she's been in."
It's unclear exactly what happened to Stewart, though she seemingly wanted to be anywhere but the Oscars - watched by millions across the world. One Academy Award viewer said, "Kristen Stewart is limping because she sprained her ankle from being excessively disinterested." However, it was perhaps Heather Robinson who summed up the whole bizarre episode, "Why does Kristen Stewart always look like she's on crack," she said.

Robert Pattinson would probably be among the first to admit that his film reel isn't exactly littered with award-winning performances, however, the British star of the Twilight movies is setting about putting that right. He's made no secret of his desire to movie into 'serious' roles and made the right moves in David Cronenberg's Cosmopolis - a psychological drama based on Don DeLillo's classic novel. Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart's cheating scandal in 2012 buried the praise he won for that role, though next up for the young star is David Michod's Australian western The Rover, which began its seven-week shoot in the south of the country on Tuesday January 29, 2013.
Produced by Porchlight Films and Lava Bear Films, The River is based on a story Michod developed with Joel Edgerton, of Zero Dark Thirty fame. Set in the Australian desert, a man named Eric (Guy Pearce) has his final possessions stolen by a gang of desperate criminals. Eric sets off on a ruthless mission to track them down, enlisting the help of Pattinson's character Reynolds, the naïve and injured member of the gang who was left behind in the chaos of their most recent robbery. There's certainly plenty to get excited about here. Michod's debut feature, Animal Kingdom, was an incredible piece of work lauded by critics and audiences alike. An unnerving crime-drama set in the dusty backdrop of south-Australia, the film won various awards and landed Jacki Weaver an Academy Award nomination for Best Supporting Actress. We pretty much know what we're going to get from the seasoned pro Guy Pearce, which leaves Pattinson - can the Twilight man turn in a good enough performance to pull this promising drama together?

Ross filed for divorce from Sanders last month following his affair with his Snow White and the Huntsman star Kristen Stewart, a film that he directed and Ross also starred in. What a way to really stick it to him then by going all the way in a breath-taking shoot for the magazine, something tells us that Sanders may very well be kicking himself right now.
Liberty also applied for joint custody of the couple’s two children, daughter Skyla, 8 and son Tennyson, 6, in the divorce settlement as well as asking for spousal support from her estranged husband, however Rupert has filed a counter suit denying her support and asking for primary custody of the children.
That’s what you get when you let your heart win – or, you know, certain other parts – actress Liberty Ross has filed for divorce from Rupert Sanders, following his affair with Kristen Stewart last year.
The announcement came this Friday (January 25) after Ross filed the divorce papers at L.A. Superior Court, citing “irreconcilable differences”. It is more than clear that the name of those differences starts with a “K” and ends with a “risten Stewart," but that name remained vacant from the divorce papers. According to a report in People Magazine, Sanders filed his counter claim at the same time. Both he and Ross are seeking joint custody over their two children – Tennyson and Skyla - with Ross also claiming spousal support and full coverage of her attorney fees, but naturally, Sanders’s claim is opposed to those details.
The split will probably come as the long awaited end of the Sanders/Stewart affair saga, which started when photos of the young star and the Snow White and the Huntsman director together surfaced. Well, there is of course the matter of Kristen and Robert Pattinson’s will-they-won’t-they relationship, but the people have publicity to gain and films to sell, so we’ll give them a little longer. Meaning, hopefully the shockwaves will stop with this or we may never actually hear the end of it.
Jodie Foster's incredible, if not slightly cryptic speech at The Golden Globes, has inspired people to be true to themselves and come out to their friends and family, but just as strangely as Foster chose to.
"Jodie Foster is being hailed as a possibly gay icon after kind of coming out during a speech at the Golden Globe Awards," The Onion reported. "The actress has become a role model to LGBT youth who are taking her lead by also giving moving but confusing coming out speeches to their friends and family." A young man in a YouTube clip is seen saying: "I have to be honest and say something that's been on my mind. And you already know it, so there it is." Foster's speech has also given rise to an awareness project for young people titled 'We are all single, just kidding, but seriously, I am together, in this room'.
Foster's denial that she's quitting the game (the acting and directing game, that is) has inspired Kristen Stewart to work with her old friend. Her buddy according to Entertainmentwise said: "Kristen knows she has a lot to learn still as an actor and obviously as a director. She's interested in possibly directing one day, and wants to learn from the best. To her, Jodie is the best. She has always been such a dear friend to Kristen," adding: "Kristen has always admired Jodie's sense of integrity and authenticity."
It's official; Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson are Hollywood's richest film couple, well, in terms of the gross profit of the movies they've been in. The couple's involvement in The Twilight Saga saw them easy take the top spot in Forbes' top 10 list.
"There is something unique about these films in the way that people have attached themselves to them," said Dorothy Pomerantz of Forbes.com. "The movies are unconventional, and you have the added element that the two people are a couple in real life," she added. The pair, of course, went through a difficult period when Stewart had an affair with Rupert Sanders - the director of the film she starred in, Snow White and the Huntsman - which only served to add intrigue to an already highly anticipated end to the vampire franchise. Channing Tatum and Rachel McAdams with their film, The Vow, earning $125 million domestically, as well as $71 million overseas. Jennifer Aniston and Adam Sandler captured the No. 3 spot with Just Go With It, which earned $103 million at the U.S. box office and double that amount after international sales were included.
The $1.17 billion that Twilight gleaned far eclipses the $125 million The Vow gained, and with their stellar reputation, it looks like it'll take a lot for any Hollywood couple to overtake the famous pair.
It's that time of year again! The nominations for this year's Razzies have been announced, with Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 2 - which made a ridiculous $814 million at the box office - leading the way with 11 nominations, including Worst Film and Worst Sequel. A spoof of the Academy Awards, this year's Razzies' picks arrived just one day before Thursday's Oscar nominations. So which directors, actors and actresses will have let out a giant, "NOOOOOOOOOOOO" when catching wind of the infamous nominations today? And perhaps more importantly, who should win (or lose). Which movies and performances really were the worst of the worst? Here goes.

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2, one of the most successfully grossing films of last year, heads up the Razzie Awards shortlist for the award no one wants to win – Worst Picture. Whilst the Twilight series has made big name stars out of the likes of Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, Taylor Lautner and Dakota Fanning, its run of films has consistently been panned by ever more desperate critics, eager to see it fail.
If reviewers haven’t had much luck derailing Twilight’s momentum, though, then they certainly did a good job of blunting the momentum of the others going up against it for this year’s Razzie. The BBC reports that high-profile failures Battleship - a film based on the board game (they probably could’ve predicted that before even going to pre-production) – and Eddie Murphy’s disastrous turn in A Thousand Words are among the contenders, with the Adam Sandler-starring That’s My Boy and sickly kids film The Oogieloves in the Big Balloon Adventure making up the numbers. It’s fair to say that all these movies took quite the tongue-lashing. Here are some choice quotes from the critics:
The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 (Rotten Tomatoes Critics Rating: 48%)
Kristen Stewart seems to have inadvertently confirmed that she’ll be appearing in the sequel to Snow White and the Huntsman.
That’s despite all the drama that occurred when she decided to have an affair with Rupert Sanders, the director of the original. There’s a been a huge question mark over whether or not Stewart would be appearing in the sequel, after her relationships with both Sanders and her actual boyfriend Robert Pattinson were dragged through the tabloids a few months ago.
After dropping a not-so-subtle hint to the Indie Wire blog, it seems almost a dead cert that Stewart will be appearing in a sequel but she’s going to try and stay tight-lipped over what happens in the film. When asked what will happen with her character in the sequel, she replied “Oh, it’s gonna be f***in’ amazing. No, I’m so excited about it, it’s crazy” and then had to reign in the chat a little bit when she was asked about where the film was going to go. “I’m not allowed (to talk about it). The other day I said that there was a strong possibility that we’re going to make a sequel, and that’s very true, but everyone was like, ‘Whoa, stop talking about it.’ So no, I’m totally not allowed to talk about it.”

Kristen Stewart is every 14-year-old girl's favourite vampire, so when she was announced to star in the cinematic adaptation of every 22-year-old man's favourite book, head's were turned, and not the right way.
In keeping with the feel of the movie, with her character Marylou representing somewhat of a wild child aside her lover, Dean Moriarty, Stewart didn't shy away from going topless in the film. She's been talking about filming the sex scenes with Indiewire. "I wasn't really having sex," she revealed, but we're pretty sure we assumed that. "I think if you were to isolate the scenes, it's fairly ridiculous watching yourself [having] fake sex. But within the movie, watching the movie, I do get so caught up in this one. I've seen it three times, and that's not typical for me." For Kristen, though, it wasn't the scenes of the sexual nature that proved the most daunting days of shooting. "The dancing scene was so much more terrifying than any of the sex scenes were for me. I was so scared of it," she says. "We crammed, I think, 60 extras into a tiny little room. Literally, I could feel the floor vibrating. It was so f--king cool. But I was terrified."
Unfortunately for Kristen, and all those who still regard the book highly, the film hasn't done its job in recreating Kerouac's beat. With a rubbish 47% on Rotten Tomatoes following some pretty awful reviews, don't expect On The Road to win any awards this season.

We've all heard of girls wearing their boyfriends clothes, but the other way round? Robert Pattinson swapped roles when he arrived in New York wearing a jacket that may very well belong to his other half Kristen Stewart, but rather that "aww," all we're feeling is "eww."
Rob was spotted arriving at JFK airport in New York City yesterday (Dec 22) after a week-long stint in the city, where he was filming for new men’s Dior fragrance advert. Although the two have been inseparable since getting back together, Stewart did not join Rob on the trip to the Big Apple, but it appears as though there weren't completely apart, as Rob was spotted wearing a jacket that may very well belong to his girlfriend.
The jacket looked a tad too small to be Rob's and with its floral lining and feminine cut, looked as though he pulled it from the wrong wardrobe when he was packing for NYC. Fans on Twitter are claiming that the jacket is a Japanese design only available in the Asian country and Rob has not been there lately, but Kristen has! Whilst some are suggesting it to be a gift others are saying it may just belong to Kristen. One Twitter user (@RobertsCaramel) said, “Apparently the Adidas jacket that Rob wore at JFK is only available in Japan and Rob hasn’t been there recently…but guess what? Kristen has."

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey is riding high in the US box office charts (way higher than its nearest competitor, Rise of the Guardians) this week and it’s unlikely that will change, though there are at least two releases this weekend that have been causing a stir. Tom Cruise stars in Jack Reacher – the adaptation of the Lee Child novel and This Is 40, the new comedy from Judd Apatow; a sequel to the popular comedy Knocked Up.
Some fans of Lee Child’s novels questioned the decision to cast Tom Cruise in the title role of Jack Reacher. He was, after all, originally on board as a producer only but after reading the script, it seems, he decided he’d like to have a go at starring in the movie too. It looks as though the gamble has just about paid off, as long as you enter the movie theatre with the understanding that what you are about to see is very much A Tom Cruise Movie, with Tom Cruise in standard Tom Cruise “cool and calculating” mode, as described by Betsy Sharkey of Los Angeles Times.
So far, the reviews are just about erring on the side of positive, with an aggregate of 63% on Rotten Tomatoes. Let’s face it, Tom Cruise’s rep has hardly had an easy ride this year and this is hardly challenging new ground for the Mission Impossible star, who has frequented many a steely action thriller of late. However, many reviewers have surmised that really, it’s Cruise that makes this movie. “This is Cruise’s show. And he nails it,” says Peter Travers of Rolling Stone. One for the Cruise fans, then. Wherever you are.
The world turned on Kristen Stewart when it was revealed that she had cheated on her boyfriend Robert Pattinson in an affair with her then director Rupert Sanders, a married man. The effect was so profound, in fact, that some die-hard fans and vloggers uploaded heartfelt and disturbing videos onto YouTube to exhibit their tears. She has since apologized for her actions and managed to win back her British beau, however in an interview with Newsweek she felt the need to apologize again.
"It's not a terrible thing if you're either loved or hated, but honestly," Kristen says, "I don't care 'cause it doesn't keep me from doing my sh*t. And I apologize to everyone for making them so angry. It was not my intention...There was a lot of skirting of little girls at rest stops. Like a volleyball team would pull up and I'd dive behind a bush." Having said this though, she added "as long as people's perspective of me doesn't keep me from doing what I want to do, it doesn't matter." It doesn't sound like she's all that sorry to us, but that's for Pattinson to decide.
She's currently promoting her latest film, an adaptation of Jack Kerouac's On the Road after finishing her final work as Bella in the four films of The Twilight Saga. On the Road will be released in the USA this Friday, 21st December.
Kristen Stewart has admitted that she felt the pressure when appearing in the film adaptation of cult classic Jack Kerouac novel On The Road. The film finally comes out in the USA on December 21 after months of hype and there are many divided on whether the novel should have ever been transfigured for the silver screen.
ITN reports that Stewart was certainly aware of that school of thinking when making the film, and admitted she too was a big fan of the book originally published in 1957. "Obviously this book is beloved by a lot more people than me and [co-star] Garrett [Hedlund],” she said. “For decades this movie has been trying to find legs and it finally did with us and that is simply mind blowing.”
Directed by Walter Salles, the film also boasts a line-up that includes Sam Riley, Amy Adams, Kirsten Dunst, Viggo Mortensen and Steve Buscemi, so the talent is certainly there to do the film justice. But will it? Stewart certainly thought that the film has done justification to the book, passionately claiming “I would do anything. I would lay in the street for this movie. I've never done a movie that had that much sort of honor about it.” We look forward to seeing Stewart laying on the street - and hopefully more – in a few days.
Kristen Stewart has been putting in a lot of effort into creating a brand new image for herself and, of course, it all comes with a new look.
The Twilight girl has really been rocking the sheer trend lately, and rocking it quite substantially too. Not that anyone minds, though, if anyone can pull off a sheer dress, it’s her. She's been busy promoting her new film On The Road lately and looking great while doing it. On Thursday, the 13th, the leading lady graced the red carpet at the On the Road premiere in a sheer Erdem mini, paired with eye-catching red heels. The ensemble sure hasn’t been a favorite with the fashion lot, but it has made headlines nonetheless. The look is part of a whole reinvention that Stewart has been going for lately.
The young actress, who has admitted on a number of occasions that she prefers a converse-and-hoodie ensemble to pretty much anything else, has been glamming up more than ever these days. Naturally, a little bit of a reinvention would be welcome for her at this point, as Stewart is just leaving her Twilight days behind and beginning a whole new stage in her career. Besides the new style, we’ll be seeing a whole lot more of Kristen in On the Road, as well as the comedy Focus, which will start filming in April 2013. We can't wait to see what she's wearing by then!
