Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart Cover Entertainment Weekly

Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart have been on the cover of quite a few magazines lately, but not for their movies. For issues with their personal lives. But let’s not forget they have a big movie coming out this fall – The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2! That’s why they are gracing the cover of Entertainment Weekly’s Fall Movie Preview issue.

The issue is set to hit newsstands Friday, August 10th.

Breaking Dawn director Bill Condon did have a comment about the relationship drama between Robert and Kristen.

He spoke with Entertainment Weekly and said, ‘The fact is, these are actors playing parts, and maybe it’s not such a bad thing that people be reminded of that. Both of these actors gave heart and soul to the Twilight movies, not only during shooting, but also by navigating so graciously the whole life-in-a-fishbowl aspect of the phenomenon. Above all they have always shown great respect for the fans who made these movies such a success. Now it’s time that some of that respect be returned to them.’

Well said.

Both Robert and Kristen were also interviewed for the Fall Movie issue, but before the relationship drama story broke.

Robert, Kristen and Makenzie Cover EW for ‘Breaking Dawn Part 2′

Hey Twilight fans! You just might want to head to the store today to pick up a copy of Entertainment Weekly because the cover is pretty dang awesome. It features Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Makenzie Foy. Check it out!

It’s a first look at the girl who plays Bella and Edward’s daughter Renesmee!

Here are a few snippets from the article:

Robert Pattinson says this final installment of the franchise—rated PG-13 and in theaters Nov. 16—is “stranger than all the other films put together.” He pauses. “Vampires are weird.”

“Let me tell you, this movie is so weird,” confirms Stewart, 22, clearly intending this as a compliment. “It. Is. Bizarre.”

Playing a mother, Stewart says, might have been different in a more traditional context, but this being the Twili-verse, it was easier to wrap her head around playing the mother of a child who in real life is only a decade or so younger: “[My relationship with Renesmee] is so completely rooted in this world and I could relate to it because I very much believe it.” And having an actress like Foy, who (rather spookily) resembles both her and Pattinson didn’t hurt either. “Even our hands look similar,” Stewart says. “It was kind of strange. But it’s funny how it actually helps. It’s like, Oh, hey, you look like me, kid! Come on!”

“The Hunger Games” Graces the Cover of Entertainment Weekly

It’s March people. The month Hunger Games fans have been patiently waiting for! Tomorrow, March 2nd, the special Hunger Games Entertainment Weekly issue hits newsstands and it is chock full of Hunger Games goodies. Check out the cover.

Here are a few quotes taken from the Hunger Games issue:

Producer Nina Jacobson on reading the books: “When I first read the book, of course I asked myself, ‘How can you do it? How can you possibly do it?’”

Director Gary Ross assures the movie will be every bit as raw and harrowing as the reading experience: “You don’t need to be gratuitous in order to be honest and capture the intensity of the book. Is it violent? Yes. Do we back off from what it is? No, we don’t. But I’m not interested in violence for violence’s sake. This is a character’s story; it’s about Katniss’ journey.”

Josh Hutcherson on keeping in touch with Jennifer Lawrence: “I’m constantly texting her, like ‘Oh, boy, here we go. It’s kind of like we’re getting ready for our own Hunger Games.”

Woody Harrelson, who plays Haymitch, on first turning down the role: “Listen, I’m nuts. It was just a stupid thing where I hadn’t read the books yet. I didn’t see that there was enough for me to do in the script. But then Gary called me back and said, ‘You gotta do this. I don’t have a second choice for the role.’ And of course flattery always gets the best of me, so I read the books and saw the depths of this guy. Holy s- – -, I would have been bummed to miss this.”

Jennifer Lawrence on her fear of saying yes to the role: “There was this huge moment of excitement and this huge moment of fear, because I knew that as soon as I said yes my life would change. A year from where I was standing at that moment, my life would be completely different. And I walked around a whole day really thinking, ‘It’s not too late, I could still go back and still do indies, it’s not too late.’”

Jennifer Lawrence on enjoying her anonymity, for now: “I’m just cherishing this time I have left. I’m going out of the house looking like s- – -. Going to Whole Foods looking like a train wreck. I went to Times Square for New Year’s Eve. I had a feeling it was the last year I could do that,”

The Return of Sarah Michelle Gellar – She’s Back in an All New Drama

Buffy the Vampire Slayer’s Sarah Michelle Gellar in the spotlight and featured on the cover of this week’s Entertainment Weekly. The star is making her return to TV in a new twisty drama entitled “Ringer”.

Here are a few excerpts from the magazine issue, which hits newsstands tomorrow, August 26th.

For Sarah Michelle Gellar, the road back to television has had more twists and turns than Ringer itself. She craved fresh, expanding life experiences. “I was young. I was newly married. And I had worked like a dog,” she says. “I just wanted to live and travel.” Eventually, the nomadic lifestyle that goes with making movies lost its appeal. Gellar was also growing disenchanted with the quality of parts coming her way. “That was a bit of a letdown for me after Buffy,” says Gellar. At first, she explains, “I thought, The [movie] roles are going to be just like Buffy. You’re not going to get stuck playing ‘the girlfriend’ or ‘the wife,’ you’re going to get these three-dimensional characters. But truthfully, those roles are very rare. It’s a better time for actresses on TV than on film.

For Gellar, there came a (baby) bump in the comeback road, though daughter Charlotte was more than welcome. Gellar—who shot the HBO pilot The Wonderful Maladys while pregnant—says it was always her plan to go back to work after six months. When Charlotte arrived, Gellar realized she wanted more time with her little lady. “I got to see the first step, hear the first word,” she says. “Most people—and certainly many working moms—are not lucky enough to get that. I wanted to appreciate the fact that I had worked so hard all my life to be able to have those moments. I don’t regret anything about making that choice.” The actress credits a conversation with another Hollywood mom, The Good Wife star Julianna Margulies, for counsel on how to juggle the demands of parenthood with starring on a TV show.)
