Amusingly Played, Twilight Cast


I’ve gone from finding this three super annoying to finding them totally amusing. This stems both from my usual Stockholm-Syndrome reaction to things — hit me over the head with something long enough and eventually I give into it (NOT YOU, KARDASHIANS) — but also because every time EW interviews the three of them en masse, they’re really funny. RPattz had me that time he said that he thinks Edward is  “a manic depressive who hates himself,” and I embarrassingly found Taylor Lautner to be nearly the only bearable part of Valentine’s Day. Plus, he was funny on SNL. And I obviously decided I had to sort of like Kristen Stewart that time she gave us finger guns.  Apart from each other, I have to go on a case-by-case basis, but when the three of them are doing an event today, hilarity usually ensues. BEHOLD.

    I love them too. I bet they’re happy it’s all over. I hope no one was standing behind K. Stew while she was kneeling in that skirt…

    Maybe it’s because we had to endure the awfulness of the Joan Jett ‘do for so long, but I swear to the follicular gods that I have never, EVER been so in love with extensions as I am with hers. She looks amazing with that long hair. (I am assuming they are extensions, if her hair has really grown that long, that fast, then I will be quite overcome with jealousy)

    The dress may be a bit short, but if I had those legs like that, I’d want to show them off, too. Wish is wasn’t so beige though.

    Also, photo 4 is hilarious.

    They look relaxed and happy, which is all lovely and stuff. I’m just mostly viewing this as confirmation that the whole “Walk of Fame” thing is a sham. These three? On the walk of fame? Really?

      It’s fan clubs who vote (and PAY) for stars to get theirs and to maintain the stars after they’re done.

      It’s why lots of people who you think SHOULD have stars don’t – Susan Sarandon for instance, I bet wouldn’t want the kind of fans who would bother with all that.

        Hang on a sec– I thought the STARS on the Walk of Fame (the street) are petitioned and paid for. The hand and footprints in Grauman’s are a separate thing. If you could pay for that, there’d be waaay more cement in front of that theater, no?

        Anyway, I love that Marios Schwab dress she’s wearing, and I like her long black hair extensions. Pretty.

        That makes a lot of sense Kit, I was also slightly horrified they’d get a star so thanks for the clarification for those of us across the pond.

      All I could think of was, Damn: a housewife in Utah gets bored, and a few years later three previously unknown actors are getting immortalized at Grauman’s…what the hell am I doing with my life?

        Actually she’s a housewife in Arizona, but the mistake is understandable since she’s Mormon. Damn, I really know too much about Stephenie Meyer already.

    Her hair looks so greasy here. Like she hasn’t washed it in days. Gross.

    The dress is kinda cute actually but she might have chosen something a bit, ahem, longer for a “kneeling down on the pavement” event, huh?

      The hair didn’t get any cleaner looking on Leno last night. Where, I might add, she was remarkably awkward. Seemed nice but really shy and overwhelmed. This is nothing new but one would hope she’d be a little better at it by this point.

        Guess it’s a good thing that I have no desire to go on talk shows like, oh, say, KStew here. Honestly, can someone have an opinion about an actor on the interwebs without being labeled jealous or accused of claiming they would do it better? I wasn’t trying to be mean; just honest. Lower your weapon, there, killer.

      But the hem looks like someone hacked it with none-too-sharp scissors… and does no one remember when STARS got immortalized, not these three flashes.
      (Why does anyone think R P is cute?)

    Very nice, B+, with a few quibbles: Patt, if your pants have belt loops, wear a belt. Stew: It’s called shampoo. Try it. And when bending over, stooping, and kneeling in public, add two inches to the hem. The rest of the dress, black and beige, Swiss dots, bias lines, excellent.

    Thank goodness it (this terribly boring movie series) is almost over. Seriously, this has to be the worst trilogy ever, especially given that vampires and werewolves seems to be inherently interesting characters upon which to base a movie.

    They all look great. Love each and every one of them. Adorable dress. And, the before cement shoes are great.

    I am just happy she can sit and stand and kneel in that skirt without flashing her girl parts! Seriously she needs to give lessons, because she has the legs to wear a short dress and has never (to my knowledge) flubbed it by showing her ass.

      She’s still got plenty of time to do that.

      Obviously, you haven’t clicked through to the Celebuzz photo gallery of this. There’s one of her on her knees. While she is doing an excellent job of keeping her thighs pressed together, I’m pretty sure we’re getting an underwear shot there.

      It’s a cute dress that fits her sensibility, but perhaps not the best choice for an event where she knew she was going to have to kneel while facing the cameras.

    It looks like she shortened her hem by hacking it off with scissors.

    When she doesn’t look in pain, she is quite pretty.

    I always forget how pretty K.Stew is when she’s not grimacing and glaring at the cameras. Also, R.Pattz appears to have washed his hair for once! Things are looking up, kids.

    Her dress is so short but she knelt down impressively well. Umm…. And the boys look cute as well. Good for them. I’m a Twilight fan so I’m all in.

    I believe this is the first time I’ve ever seen a picture of Kristen Stewart without hating her. She doesn’t have her bitchface on AND she looks like she’s washed her hair at some point this month! And Sandra is right, she is so pretty when she smiles! Go Kristen!

    Still hate Twilight, though.

      “I believe this is the first time I’ve ever seen a picture of Kristen Stewart without hating her.” — Ditto.

      “Still hate Twilight, though.” — This too. :D

    I love all 3 of them :) And KStew is gorgeous…. and looks even better when she smiles.
    The dress IS a little short, but holy shit does that girl have LEGS! I am so jealous.

    I could have lived without the shot up her crotch. I’m so tired of these three. Kristen, go home and get dressed.

      wordphreak…go home and STFU

      • vandalfan
        0

        Oh, I’m afraid Wordphreak speaks for many. Stew’s legs are long and thin, but not shapely; they have no musculature and look like little meat tubes, like a foot long hotdog without the bun. (And the older gentleman with the red tie and averted eyes is showing incredible restraint.) These kids have been overexposed to the point of surfeit, like the K’s, but unlike the K’s, there is actually a purpose to the hoopla, to sell tickets. The K’s value escape me, but they can all be lumped together in the Had Too Much Already pile.

        Please don’t tell other posters to STFU. That’s not appropriate, even if you disagree. Thank you.

    Poor Taylor got his oranginess accentuated by posing with an english man and a really pale californian girl who has been living in the not so sunny London…

    Taylor does do cool and casual very well, but his voice! His high squeaky surfer dude voice ruin him for me. Leo has the same problem, but obviously overcame the shortcoming.

    I love her dress. I would love it more if it were just two inches longer because it makes me nervous. However she seemed to manage herself quite nicely, so good for her. And she does have nice legs. Is that really her hair however? Is it really that long or are those extensions? Because that’s a lot of hair.

    I think all the pained expressions and sideways-looking may be because they are being forced to look out into the bright sun.

    I hope she was wearing some good old fashioned “old lady underpants” (to quote Joey Tribiani) under that dress. Although, she never seems to flash people while wearing her micro-minis, so she must be doing something right.
    Taylor is orange-oh my.
    Otherwise, I think they all looked great. Nice to see.

      She’s got on black boy shorts underneath… I saw a pic but I can’t find it right now.

        I think she always wears the boy shorts, now that you mention it. Saw them on Leno under a different dress.

    While I wish K’s dress was longer, I do love those shoes. The stilettos, not the Vans.

    They look like they are having fun and all that. And it’s nice to see K Stew with a different expression than her usual “Do I smell something?” face. Other than that … snore. People, please step away from the Twilight kool aid.

    I bet you 15 dollars that K-Stew chopped the hem off that dress herself. At 5’3 and with a penchant for heels myself I’ve had more than one opportunity to rough cut myself a miniskirt!

    I’ve always thought Kristen was really pretty. She looks great and has legs that go on for days! They all look pretty nice (minus the orangeness).

    meh… these three don’t add up to even one of the true movie starts immortalized at the Chinese Theatre. I mean.. Judy Garland, anyone? Elizabeth Taylor? Jimmy Stewart, Paul Newman, Meryl Streep…? puh-leeze…

    Great pics! They’re all so, so much looser out in public. Except Taylor, of course. Kid has been groomed since age 13! Kristen is absolutely stunning, and I love her hair that length! But enough with the micro-minis, already! Also, she still affects that ‘smirk’ for a smile. Unless she just can’t help it! But I noticed she does it in the movie trailers, too.

    Hmm, if you have to wear boy shorts with everything, shouldn’t that tell you something about the length of your skirts?

    Actually I think this dress would look great with another FOOT or so – a longish flared skirt would look really retro cool. We don’t have to SEE your long legs to know you HAVE long legs.

    Yeah, sure, they’re cute & fun & charming & blah, blah, blah, but OMG THE SHOES!!!!!!! I covet her shoes!

    I’m with you. The immediate reviling is being replaced with mild to outright amusement. The dudes especially don’t seem to take themselves too seriously.

    And sister, if I had legs like K and could rock the heels like that I would probably hack off all my skirts too.

    K Stew really doesn’t have much waist does she?

    Is anyone completely disturbed that these three are now immortalised in front of Graumann’s, along with Hollywood greats like Clint Eastwood, Humphrey Bogart and Clark Gable? I cannot think of three people less deserving, except maybe the Kardashian sisters. Or the Jersey Shore guys.

    Ugh, I can’t believe how jagged the “hem” of her dress is. Like she just shaved off the bottom with a box cutter. So much for all that expensive beading. I still don’t like her, or the movies.

    Who cares about a love triangle between a vampire, an werewolf and a zombie, anyway? ;)

    Am liking the line of white buttons on black shirt which elongates T.L. (I call him that ‘cos we’re buddies.) Also like the breadth a white shirt lends to the otherwise skinny looking R.P ( I call him that ‘cos we’re also buds.) Clever to use a cross on the front of the dress that girl is wearing. (I call her that because I forgot her name, and not because I’m jealous.) It accentuates her waist nicely, when she might look a little rectangular without the garment given assistance. ( I alliterate because I can, and not because I’m a raving fantasist who never met T.L or R.P)…

    My friend’s brother is a flight attendant, and he had them on one of his flights. Since he lives in Spain, he didn’t know anything about Twilight, and when he asked them about it, they told him “don’t bother, it’s crap.” I will always love them for that.

    RPattz is adorably cynical, awkward and charming. his interviews are hilarious.

    I wish KStew would step away from the micro-minis. -_- please, try another (longer) length. she was very believable as an awkward, emo, butch, teenage Joan Jett. that kind of role fit her like a glove.

    T.Lautner is always the most well-groomed.

  37. Jenna Horko

    I kinda feel bad for Lautner, because judging by what little I’ve seen of him of late, he’s not unusually orange. It’s kinda like what happened with the Middletons at the royal wedding: you have a healthy-looking complexion, but you are suddenly at a public event surrounded by deadly pale people and lo, you look like a Jersey Shore cast member.

    But I’m still outraged that they’re getting their feet and hands in front of Grauman’s. Seriously!?! If they got stars, I wouldn’t mind. They probably all have them already, come to think of it. Hell, way less deserving people have stars, they just mean a person has active fans. But this? This is supposed to be reserved for true greats. And even if you were a massive Twihard person, I don’t think you would call these three “cinema greats” or legends.
