::Team Edward:: Rob Says Fans Protected Him From Paparazzi on WFE Set

Paparazzi have always been a long-time nuisance for celebrities all over the world. But then what would we do without them? But when things go from bothersome to troublesome, that’s when the paparazzi game can be a bit of an annoyance, and the fans of Robert Pattinson were not having it on the set of  Water For Elephants.
ROBERT PATTINSON’s fans came to his rescue on the set of WATER FOR ELEPHANTS – they forced the paparazzi to stop snapping the star as he shot dangerous scenes with REESE WITHERSPOON.
Snappers frequently descended on the California set to try and catch Pattinson and Witherspoon at work, and at one stage they were distracting the pair during a scene – but the Twilight star’s waiting fans saved the day.
He tells Telepoche magazine, “(The funniest fan experience) happened while I was filming Water for Elephants in which my partner is Reese Witherspoon. We had a scene with elephants but there were so many paparazzi around that it was scaring the animals and it was impossible to film.
“Out of the blue, fans, that were waiting for autographs, had enough and circled around the paparazzi. Teens made big guys run away. It was unreal! I was pleased.”


::Team Twilight:: Muse Bassist Compares Being On 'Twilight' Soundtracks To Selling Soul

After making millions of potential new fans thanks to the inclusion of their songs on all three "Twilight" soundtrack albums, Muse bassist Chris Wolstenholme may be risking the bloodthirsty wrath of the Twi-Hard Nation with some comments he recently made about the vampire sensation.

"I'm not sure how cool it is to be on those kind of things, but sometimes you've just got to get your music out there in different ways," he told BBC Radio 1's Newsbeat column.

Even with the films' box-office success and the massive exposure for the band, which is stadium-rocking huge in Europe but has not yet broken through in the same way in the U.S., Wolstenholme said he's not sure the trade-off has been worth it. "It's very difficult in America, because you don't have anything like Radio 1, nothing is national," he said. "You have to take every opportunity you get over there, and sometimes you have to sell your soul."

The group's "Supermassive Black Hole" was the lead track on the original "Twilight" soundtrack — and it played a pivotal role in the key baseball scene in the film — while "I Belong to You (New Moon Remix)" appeared on the "New Moon" disc, and "Neutron Star Collision (Love Is Forever)" is on the "Eclipse" album.

"Twilight" author Stephenie Meyer is an avowed fan of the drama-loving band and has said that their music inspired her writing, but Wolstenholme appeared ambivalent about how the music has been used in the films. He said he watched the original movie and "quite enjoyed it," even if it wasn't his "cup of tea," but he has not seen the two sequels.

When it came time to place "Neutron Star Collision" in "Eclipse," there appears to have been some confusion over where it would fit in that added to his uneasiness about participating in the project.

"When we were in the studio writing it, one minute they said they wanted to use it in the end credits, then they said they wanted to use it in another scene," he said. "Then it was another scene, and in the end, we were like, 'Do what you want with it, we don't care any more.' "

The comments were a bit of a turnabout from ones drummer Dominic Howard made in October, when he said the band was flattered to be the only group to appear on the first two "Twilight" soundtracks.

"It might be something to do with Stephenie Meyer and that she loves us," Howard told MTV News. "We met her quite awhile ago in Phoenix — it was before 'Twilight' came out. She's a very nice lady and talked about how she listens to our music as she writes her books. This is all way before it turned into this huge success that it is, before everyone went vampire nuts."

At the time, Howard said that inclusion in the "Twilight" franchise had helped Muse reach out to "whole loads of new people that haven't heard us before. ... It's a nice side project to be involved in."

After pushing back, rearranging and canceling a pair of North American dates due to the impending birth of Wolstenholme's fifth child, Muse are slated to be back on the road in the U.S. for a September 22 show in San Diego. And the bassist said things are finally breaking through for them stateside.

"It's going great over there," he said. "Early this year, we started playing in arenas, so it was great to finally take over the full production that we toured with in Europe. ... For a long time, America fell by the wayside and nothing was really happening at all, and we were having problems with our record company over there."

But with a full slate of dates through the end of the year, don't expect a follow-up to last year's Resistance any time soon. "The touring schedules are so crazy that just the thought of another album is just not even there at the moment," he said. "I'm sure [singer] Matt [Bellamy] has plenty of ideas, but physically trying to get together and work on stuff is just not possible on tour. ... The few days off we do have, we like to go home or go somewhere and chill out. We prefer to keep the two things separate and not try and think too much about recording when we're touring."

::Team Breaking Dawn:: Melissa Rosenberg Discusses Gore and Edward's Teeth.

Now that Eclipse has hit theaters and broken box office records, Twilight fans are already anxiously awaiting the next onscreen chapter in Bella and Edward's love story: Breaking Dawn. We talked exclusively to Melissa Rosenberg, the screenwriter behind all of the Twilight films, to find out what we can expect from the final two installments. She weighed in on whether or not Bella's childbirth scene will make it to the screen, shared her most surprising fan moment, and dished on her creative relationship with Stephenie Meyer.
Melissa will be speaking in LA at the Writer's Guild Foundation on Tuesday evening — tune into a livestream here. In the meantime, check out our all-new exclusive interview with her here now.
PopSugar: How did you feel about the decision to split Breaking Dawn into two movies?
Melissa Rosenberg: Relief, actually, because it was going to be quite a challenge to condense such a large book into one movie. That's always the challenge with all of these and, more so, Breaking Dawn. Having a little more room to breathe is nice . . . on the other hand, there's also the challenge of making sure there's enough to fill two movies.
PS: We've heard there are some scenes you want to avoid showing on screen in Breaking Dawn. For example, Bella giving birth. Can you tell us why?
MR: That was a misquote. The childbirth — all the scenes, I feel — should be on screen. I think perhaps what I was referring to was, would we actually see Edward's teeth through the placenta? I don't think so. I don't think we need to see that, and if someone needs to see that, I think they should take a look at that. [Laughs.] I believe it will be implied, but I don't think we'll see teeth in the placenta.
To read the rest of the interview about her craziest fan experience, her favorite scenes to write, and more, just read more.
PS: What responsibility do you feel toward the fans? Are they on your mind during the writing process?
MR: The responsibility I feel to the fans? Well, there's one: making them happy, of course. I want people to enjoy the movie and not feel that I killed their favorite novel! But what I've realized is, you can't satisfy all the people. But the real weight that I feel is a very heavy responsibility, knowing that a lot of women and young girls are seeing this, and watching to make sure that what's portrayed in the film is that Bella's a strong female role model. That the messages they're getting are positive ones.
PS: What's the craziest or most surprising fan reaction you've experienced?
MR: You can't call it crazy, but crazy wonderful. I just came back from Paris. I was there [for a press junket] with some of the actors: Daniel Cudmore, Edi Gathegi, Michael Welch, and Alex Meraz. At the end, there was this closing ceremony and we were told there was a surprise for us, and they led us out on the stage . . . and the entire audience was sort of standing in this darkened theater, almost as if in prayer. It was very odd. And then after a moment, Lady Gaga's "Bad Romance" starts up, and they break into a dance they've been choreographing for three days. This wonderful, very unified dance, and it was amazing. We were stunned. A thousand pairs of hands all raised to the beat at the same time — it's a powerful experience . . . I wondered, could that have happened anywhere else but in France? Would American audiences have been too cool?
PS: How involved is Stephenie Meyer in the writing process and what is your relationship with her like?
MR: Stephenie is very involved. My relationship with her has only gotten better with every movie. When I met her and began to engage, I had no reason to be protective. I found her to be extremely collaborative and a tremendous resource. So I began to engage her more and that happened more on New Moon and even more in Eclipse . . . She weighs in on every draft of the outline, every draft of the script. She's on set. She's very involved.
PS: What is one of your favorite scenes from the books or films? Is there one you've especially enjoyed writing or look forward to writing?
MR: There are a number. I think seeing Bella as a vampire and her adjusting to her powers and embracing them, those are all really fun scenes to write. Particularly when you picture Kristen Stewart playing her, and the way she's embodied Bella as a sort of awkward, fidgety persona. When she turns into a vampire, all of that goes away.
