Stephen Colbert: Trump Tweets More To Attack Kristen Stewart Than Condemn Anti-Semitism
Huffington Post - 14 days
Stephen Colbert just highlighted a disturbing statistic regarding President Donald Trump’s Twitter use. Specifically, the “Late Show” host said Thursday how Trump has used the micro-blogging site more times to attack actress Kristen Stewart than he has to condemn anti-Semitism. Colbert reminded Stewart on his show how Trump had repeatedly attacked her in 2012 for ending her three-year relationship with fellow “Twilight” star Robert Pattinson, after she kissed her “Snow White and the Huntsman” director, Rupert Sanders. Stewart literally brushed off Trump’s tweets: But the host’s appalling statistic came as more of a shock. “Oh my God,” said Stewart on hearing the news, shaking her head in disbelief.

Kristen Stewart Hated How Her Relationship With Rob Pattinson Was Turned Into A Commodity
Huffington Post - 17 days
Kristen Stewart opened up about her relationship with her former “Twilight” co-star Robert Pattinson.  In an interview with The Sunday Times, Stewart, who was never one to share personal details about her relationship with Pattinson, said she kept things private, “because I wanted things that are mine to be mine,” not because she was trying to hide.  The pair, who dated for more than three years, were one of the most famous celebrity couples in Hollywood. Much to Stewart’s dismay, keeping their relationship out of the public eye wasn’t really possible.  “I hated it that details of my life were being turned into a commodity and peddled around the world. But considering I had so many eyes on me, I suddenly realized [my private life] affects a greater number of people than just me,” she said. “It was an opportunity to surrender a bit of what was mine, to make even one other person feel good about themselves.” She continued, “If it didn’t seem like a relevant topic, like some ...

Kristen Stewart Called Herself 'So Gay' On 'SNL.' Here's Why It Matters.
Huffington Post - about 2 months
Last night’s episode of “Saturday Night Live” was must-see TV for a number of reasons: The Grim Reaper was tapped to play Steve Bannon, Melissa McCarthy showed up and delivered a blistering, pitch-perfect portrayal of White House press secretary Sean Spicer, and host Kristen Stewart said the F-word on live TV during her monologue. But there was another equally remarkable, though admittedly quieter, moment in the first five minutes of the show that you might have missed: Stewart, for the first time ever, publicly used the word “gay” in reference to herself (see the above video at the 2:26 mark). Stewart’s sexual identity has been the subject of rumors for years. It’s difficult to avoid speculation about your private life when you’re not just famous but also one-half of one of the most famous couples in the world, as Stewart was when she dated “Twilight” co-star Robert Pattinson for several years. But even after that relationship ended, Stewart was still dogged by ...

Amazon's original content might not get as much buzz as the average Netflix series , but that hasn't stopped the company from pressing forward with new movies and shows.

What Happened To The Ingénue?
Huffington Post - 3 months
You can be highbrow. You can be lowbrow. But can you ever just be brow? Welcome to Middlebrow, a weekly examination of pop culture. Last week, when film icon Debbie Reynolds died at 84, her New York Times obituary headline dubbed her a “Wholesome Ingénue in 1950s Films.” Quickly, lookups for the etymologically French term soared, according to Merriam- Webster. As those curious readers likely found, the Times was being slightly redundant in its description of the one-time starlet. The term “ingénue” itself ― which usually describes a wide-eyed, innocent young woman, a stage or film role depicting such a young woman, or an actress typecast as playing these roles ― denotes wholesomeness, sexual purity and naiveté, and sweetness.  When Reynolds broke into Hollywood as a teenager, she starred as girl-next-door sweethearts opposite the male matinée idols of the day in films like “Singing in the Rain” and “Bundle of Joy.” She filled a classic role at the time, guileless lead or f ...

10 Eyebrows As Famous As The Men Who Own Them
Huffington Post - 4 months
By Adam Hurly for GQ. Good eyebrows are mostly genetic — plucking will clean things up, but it can only do so much. And no two pairs are alike for the same reason: Drake’s bushy brows might look good on him, but they’d seem funny on John Boyega’s face; Boyega’s magnificently arched, ultra-friendly brows would detract from Drake’s bad-boy cred, and so on. We hope you have two reactions to brows-ing this gallery: a newfound appreciation for geometry, and gratitude that we included exactly zero unibrows. DRAKE Drake must “Take Care” of his thick brows; they look like a painter’s perfectly graduated brushstroke, and strongly complement his dark beard and mustache.

After the Orlando shooting, America is clearly maturing from its hashtag approach to tragedy into a more proactive open letter-based approach. You know Donald Trump is taking the Orlando shooting seriously as he’s spent about as much time on it on Twitter as he did Robert Pattinson's love life.

Recently Divorced and Alone for the Holidays? These Tips Will Help You Through
Huffington Post - over 1 year
A breakup can either prepare you to receive the love your soul needs or it can throw you into the depths of despair and depression. You have to make a conscious decision as to which direction you want to take. If you want to be sane, happy and position yourself for love again, you have to decide that you will do whatever it takes to be happy again. This isn't an easy decision but a necessary one in order to prevent yourself from being stuck in the muck of divorce-land. A part of that decision is to give up torturing yourself with the "what-ifs" and focusing on the negativity of the divorce. Fighting over things, and the principle of things will only prolongs your pain and frustration. The insanity that results from the fighting, bickering, name calling and mudslinging, only serves as a scheme to keep you in pain and stuck where you are.

Learn about memorable moments in the evolution of Robert Pattinson
  • 2016
    Age 29
    As of August 2016, Pattinson has several projects in various stages of production.
    More Details Hide Details He has completed Paramount Pictures and Plan B Entertainment's adaptation of The Lost City of Z, directed by James Gray, Safdie Brothers Good Time as a bank robber Connie Nikas, and David Zellner's western-comedy Damsel. In addition, he is set to appear as an astronaut in Claire Denis's Scifi film High Life. Pattinson began modelling at the age of 12, but his workload began to decrease four years later. In December 2008, he blamed the lack of modelling work on his masculine appearance: "When I first started I was quite tall and looked like a girl, so I got lots of jobs, because it was during that period where the androgynous look was cool. Then, I guess, I became too much of a guy, so I never got any more jobs. I had the most unsuccessful modelling career." Pattinson appeared in the advertising campaign for Hackett's autumn 2007 collection.
    Next month, he was announced as the first ambassador of Dior Homme Menswear and appeared in brand's 2016 fall collection campaign shot by Karl Lagerfeld.
    More Details Hide Details Pattinson plays the guitar and piano, and composes his own music. He appears as the singer of two songs on the Twilight soundtrack: "Never Think", which he co-wrote with Sam Bradley, and "Let Me Sign", which was written by Marcus Foster and Bobby Long. Pattinson also played the guitar on the Death Grips song "Birds", which was released in November 2013 on their album Government Plates. The songs were included in the film after director Catherine Hardwicke added Pattinson's recordings into an early cut without his knowledge, and he agreed that "one of them specifically, it really made the scene better. It was like it was supposed to be there." The soundtrack for the film How to Be features three original songs performed by Pattinson and written by composer Joe Hastings. Pattinson has said, "I've never really recorded anything – I just played in pubs and stuff", and when asked about a professional music career, he said, "Music is my back-up plan if acting fails." In 2010, Pattinson was awarded the "Hollywood's Most Influential Top Unexpected Musicians" award.
    In January 2016, he appeared in another campaign for Dior Homme shot by German photographer and director Peter Lindbergh.

Lawrence aka Lawrence Of Arabia in the film, which Geoffrey Macnab of The Independent described as "comic and a very long way removed from Peter O'Toole. He plays Lawrence Of Arabia as a sharp-tongued, sardonic figure who can see through the pretensions of his bosses and colleagues." David Rooney of The Hollywood Reporter called his role "brief but significant" and concluded that "the easy camaraderie in his scenes with Kidman is appealing." Sam Adams of Indiewire said that, "Robert Pattinson gets relatively high marks for his brief turn as the bonafide T.E. Lawrence." Next he starred in Anton Corbijn's Life as Life Magazine photographer Dennis Stock; the film deals with the friendship between actor James Dean and Stock. Critical reception for the film was mixed but Pattinson received appreciation for his portrayal of a photographer. Guy Lodge of Variety called his performance a "sly turn", Little White Lies said that "Pattinson's performance is as crisp as the white shirt and black suits his character always wears.
