How Has Twilight Affected You?

I will admit at first, I didn’t know what Twilight was or had even read the book but it seemed to be a huge deal to everyone else. A cousin of mine told me, “You have to check out this movie Twilight and this guy in it is so hot.” I was curious because I had seen the previews but didn’t know exactly what  it was so she let me borrow the movie so I could see it….oh my God, what did I do that for?

I went from not knowing a thing about the Twilight Saga to reading all the books, keeping track of when the next movie would be out, any news that even mention Twilight or the people from the movies, I knew about it and writing this lovely blog about everything I could possibly find on Twilight.

Kristen, Robert and Taylor have done an amazing job bringing this world to life for us on the big screen. Stephenie Meyer has written a story that will take its place with other classic love stories of its time. Vampires and werewolves take on a whole new meaning and take us to a different world of imagination.

Breaking Dawn, both parts, will be amazing. I think it will smash records from theaters to DVD sales and I would hope that they would put it on DVD because there will be a lot of people really, really upset. The Twilight Saga is a beautiful love story that will go on forever and I will continue to follow these characters because they have ‘imprinted’ on my life and the billions of fans worldwide and only people who have seen the movies or read the books will get what I’m saying.

I will be sad to see this story end but if I want to relive this story all over again, I can pop in a movie or read the entire series again and again. Thank you to everyone involved for bringing this story to life for us.

Top Ten ‘Twilight Saga’ Surprises

OS ANGELES – The “Twilight Saga” only has one movie under its belt so far, but already there’s been enough drama surrounding the vampire franchise to fill a soap opera. With “New Moon” on the way this fall and production on “Eclipse” beginning, AccessHollywood.com counts down “Twilight’s” craziest moments so far!

10. NAKED VOLTURI 
Jamie Campbell Bower revealed that the Volturi vampires will appear naked in “New Moon” — but it turns out that he was only joking. He originally told MTV News, “We just all sit there, completely naked, for one scene.” However the film’s director Chris Weitz cleared things up in a statement saying: “Dear all, I would like to put everyone’s mind at rest and let them know that the Volturi are not naked!”

9. HARDWICKE NOT RETURNING FOR “NEW MOON” 
After helming the massively successful “Twilight,” and earning the biggest opening weekend ever for a female film director, Catherine announced that she would not return for “New Moon.” While a source told Deadline Hollywood Daily that there was friction between Catherine and the film’s studio, Summit Entertainment, both the director and the studio said the split was on good terms and the reason she wasn’t involved in the sequel was an issue of timing.

8. TAYLOR LAUTNER ALMOST LOSES HIS ROLE

For awhile things looked dicey for Taylor Lautner. It was rumored that due to how big his character, Jacob Black, becomes in the second film, Summit was concerned Taylor wouldn’t be able to fill the werewolf’s paws. It caused quite an online stir, as fans petitioned and fought to keep Taylor in the role. And Taylor himself did not take the news lightly — he hit the gym and bulked up, cementing his spot as Jacob.

 

 

7. STEPHENIE MEYER’S LEAKED BOOK


After an unfinished rough draft of Stephenie Meyer’s latest “Twilight Saga” novel, “Midnight Sun” was leaked on the Internet, the author explained, “If I tried to write ‘Midnight Sun’ now, in my current frame of mind, James would probably win and all the Cullens would die, which wouldn’t dovetail too well with the original story. In any case, I feel too sad about what has happened to continue working on ‘Midnight Sun,’ and so it is on hold indefinitely.”

It was quite a surprise when Dakota Fanning, who had been known as the beloved blonde child actor from dozens of movies, was cast to play the evil pint-sized Volturi vampire, Jane. It’s quite a departure from Dakota’s previous films, and fans are looking forward to seeing her sink her teeth into the role!

5. DAVID SLADE KNOCKS “TWILIGHT”
There’s nothing worse than angry fanpires. After David Slade signed on to direct the third film “Eclipse,” it was reported that he had made some disparaging remarks about the series on a radio show. He said, “‘Twilight’ drunk? No, not even drunk. ‘Twilight’ on acid? No, not even on acid? ‘Twilight’ at gun point? Just shoot me.” He later howledhis regrets to the fanbase, explaining, “I was being silly and none of the statements were from the heart.”

4. TAYLOR LAUTNER’S ABS

Jacob
Yes, Taylor’s abs get their own spot on the list, and rightfully so. With his shirt off for much of “New Moon,” fans can see that all the hard work at the gym has paid off for Taylor Lautner and his eight-pack. At the San Diego Comic-Con, tweens nearly lost their mind when they saw the coming attraction. Click here to hear their screams!

3. ROBERT PATTINSON AND KRISTEN STEWART DATING RUMORS

While it has long been a dream for many of the Twi-hards to see Edward and Bella spark a real-life connection, it appears as if this off-screen rumor mill has heightened in recent weeks. There were many reported sightings of the duo in Los Angeles while their co-stars were back in Vancouver, and rumors that they had hung out at the Chateau Marmont together, a source told People.

 

2. ASHLEY GREENE NUDE PHOTOS

After nude shots allegedly of the star were leaked online this past Monday, Ashley Greene is firing back threatening legal action. The racy photos, which appear to show the “New Moon” star nude, surfaced online one day after Ashley picked up the Choice Fresh Face Female award at the 2009 Teen Choice Awards.

The surprising news that Bryce Dallas Howard would be replacing Rachelle Lefevre in the role of Victoria for the third installment of the series, “Eclipse” sent a shockwave through the fan base. While Rachelle said that she was “stunned” by the news, the studio fired back saying that it was due to “schedule conflicts” and pinned the blame on Rachelle.

Is ‘Twilight’ Star Christian Serratos On Team Edward Or Team Jacob?

DALLAS — Imagine if you were an actor in the “Twilight” movies. Would you still wear the T-shirts? Would you attend the conventions? Go out of your way to keep up on all the latest details?

If you answered yes, then you’d be Christian Serratos, the 19-year-old “Twilight” saga star who just also happens to be a huge fan of the series. Contradicting her co-star who refuses to wear any “Twilight” stuff, we spoke with Christian atTwiCon between her shopping excursions on the convention floor. In the movies, she’s shy Angela, but in real life, the fun-loving actress was eager to talk “New Moon,” her Team Edward/ Team Jacob dilemma and why technology is stopping her from reading the new “Eclipse” script.

MTV: So, Christian, what is the favorite costume you’ve seen here so far at TwiCon?

Christian Serratos: I thought it was really entertaining when I saw a Harry Potter character. [Laughs.] We were like, “Whoa!”

MTV: There’s also one guy dressed as a Vulcan from “Star Trek,” for some reason.

Serratos: I heard that! I want to see this. I’m interested to see all this craziness. I love all the “Twilight” stuff and all the [fans] that are in clothes and jackets. I have so many “Twilight” T-shirts, it’s ridiculous. I walked out in a “Twilight” sweatshirt one time when I was trying to be incognito with Edi [Gathegi], and we were like, “Why is everyone staring? This is weird, this is more than usual.” And then he was like, “Take off the ‘Twilight’ shirt, Christian!”

MTV: That’s really funny. I always wondered with sports stars, if you were on a baseball team, would you wear their baseball cap when you go out in public? Maybe if you were a rookie?

Serratos: Yeah, well, I’m such a rookie. [Laughs.]

MTV: What do you have in your “Twilight” clothes collection?

Serratos: I have a lot of “Twilight” gear. I love the hoodies that say “vampires” and “werewolves,” but I refuse to get one because I can’t choose; I have to have them both. I have the Team Edward T-shirt, but I also have Team Jacob.

MTV: Why is there no “Team Human” stuff?

Serratos: That’s what I’m saying! I think we should take it into our own hands.

MTV: What kind of merchandise would you like to see for Angela, Mike and the other humans?

Serratos: Probably it would be an imitation of my glasses? … [It would be easy] going to a convention where you have to dress up, and you’re like “Oh, I am dressed up!” “No you’re not!” “Yes I am. I’m a human!”

MTV: OK, so let’s talk “New Moon” a little bit. How was the shoot?

Serratos: Chris [Weitz] was amazing, like, fantastic. I was really happy working with him. We shot in Vancouver [British Columbia], which was a good change from Portland [Oregon]. I love the city Portland, and I’ve been back there since, but in Vancouver the weather was a lot better, and I didn’t wanna die at the end of the day, because it wasn’t extremely cold. I’m excited to go film “Eclipse.” That’s gonna be next month already — they are already cranking it out.

MTV: And they’ll be shooting that in Vancouver as well?

Serratos: Yeah. I haven’t read the script yet. I didn’t bring my laptop with me, so I saw it on my phone — on my e-mail — and I was like, “I wish I could download this as an attachment, but I can’t!”

MTV: How were the re-created sets in Vancouver? Obviously, most of your stuff takes place in the school cafeteria.

Serratos: Yeah, they did a really good job re-creating things. Obviously, we didn’t have the same parking lot and everything. There were a lot of green screens and things. I don’t even know how they do it.

MTV: Was it weird walking into the “new” cafeteria with the other humans?

Serratos: Yeah, because the cafeteria was still a cafeteria. When we walked into that cafeteria, we were like, “We’re in a different country, and it still looks exactly the same!” Like, seriously, they could have just picked it up and dropped it in Vancouver. It looks identical — that was creepy until I got used to it. But the parking lot, that is what was green-screened.

MTV: What did you think of the footage we saw at Comic-Con, of Rob as a “hallucination”?

Serratos: I still haven’t seen it; but I wanted to stay and watch it. Rob’s gonna be in it a lot more [than in the book]. I really love how they did that. It was really clever.

MTV: You seem like you’re as much of a fan as an actor sometimes.

Serratos: Oh, God, yeah. We’re all “Twilight” fans. We all read the books, we all fell in love with the books — and being a part of it is great and everything, but we want to see the footage!
