Robert Pattinson Targets Himself

Robert Pattinson on the cover of GQ magazineSo what do you do when you’re Robert Pattinson, and you have one of the most attractive, beautiful faces on this planet? How about throwing some darts at it!

The Twilight star is so sick of seeing his photograph in magazines and newspapers (oh poor him), he stuck an image on the wall of his trailer and invited his co-stars to throw darts at it.

A source on the set of The Twilight Saga: New Moon told the National Enquirer magazine, “Robert got a magazine cover with a picture of his face on it and pinned it to a dartboard that was in his trailer. He took shots at it and asked everyone else to do the same.”

Robert, 23, is finding his newfound fame increasingly difficult to cope with, and has confessed he came close to “losing it” earlier this year: “I was getting really paranoid. But then I realiszd that if tomorrow I say, ‘OK, I’ve had enough we’re stopping everything,’ it won’t change anything. Might as well try to accept it and stay Zen as I have no control over it. It’s not always easy. But whining won’t change anything.”


Kristen Stewart Scared of Vamps

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Movies, Meltdowns, Rumors,

Kristen Stewart is scared of vamps!Believe it or not, Kristen Stewart is scared of vampires.

The Twilight actress is so terrified of the mythical blood-sucking creatures that she festoons her home with cloves of garlic in an attempt to deter them.

A source told National Enquirer: “People are always remarking how smelly it is, but Kristen doesn’t care. She’s been afraid of vampires for years, even before she signed up to do the movies, and read somewhere that garlic is supposed to repel them.”

Kristen, 19, hangs pouches of the smelly foodstuff on her bedroom door, and even keeps an emergency stash in her car.

In the movies, Bella falls in love with the vampire Edward Cullen, played by Robert Pattinson. She becomes so enamored with him that she tells him she wants to become one too, but Edward will not grant her wishes.

Kristen recently revealed that she finds the movies’ fans frightening because they are so obsessive: “I’m scared. I feel like I could go out in disguise, but they would recognise my feet or the shape of my leg.”

Kristen Stewart Admits Closeness With Pattinson

Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson: close friends or lovers?Kristen Stewart has figured us out.

The Twilight actress “understands” why people think she is dating Robert Pattinson. Although she admits they are “close,” Kristen claims they are just pals:

“Robert and I are great friends, but I understand why you would assume that, when we lean on each other for support, there must be something more. And I’m not criticizing anyone for thinking it either. If anything, they’re really perceptive because they can see a closeness.”

The actress has just completed work on The Twilight Saga: New Moon, the sequel to Twilight. With two more movies left in the Vampire Chronicles franchise, the 19-year-old star admits she is looking forward to finishing the series.

Kristen explained: “I can’t wait to be finished because initially when I start a movie, I’m dying to get it done. I’m thinking about it all the time, I want to do the scenes and I want to make sure we do them right. Usually I have six weeks and at the end of that we will have our product and gone through everything we wanted to, but in this case I have to wait literally years. I’m waiting to get it done.”

Kelly Clarkson sings to an Edward Cullen poster

American Idol alum Kelly Clarkson was performing last night when a fan handed her a poster of Robert Pattinson (as brooding vampire Edward Cullen, of course). From there, she took the poster and sang “I Want You” to it! Clearly, celebrities aren’t too immune to Pattinson’s lure. Check out the video of her serenade after the jump.

Robert Pattinson Shears His Shaggy Locks

UPDATE: Co-star Ashley Greene says Robert “got in trouble” for cutting his hair.

Maybe he was trying to hide from screaming fans?

Just when we thought would go a few more weeks without a good shampoo, the Twilight star decided to throw us off. In the picture on the right, the vampire is seen walking around Los Angeles with an entirely new head of hair. (You can see more pics here.)

What do you think of his new look? Did you like the thought of running your fingers through his (sticky) locks…or would you be happier touching his freshly cropped ‘do?
