What we love about James Franco is that, despite pursuing a Ph.D. at Yale, garnering serious Oscar buzz in “127 Hours” and embodying a Hollywood A-list persona, he’s taken time out of his busy schedule to keep up with the trends. That’s right, James has both read and watched the “Twilight” books and films, and when MTV News caught up with him at the Toronto International Film Festival where he was promoting “127 Hours,” he spent more time talking about the phenomenon than the film’s stars typically do.
While he may not be a self-proclaimed Twi-hard after reading the series, James can at least reference Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner on a first name basis (you’d be surprised to find there are celebs out there who can’t), and can clearly understand the deeper metaphors of the stories.
“I wouldn’t say I enjoy them, but I’m fascinated with them,” James said about the books. “I’m interested in the metaphor of the vampire placed in the high school setting and how a relationship with a vampire can stand in for general feelings that people have as teenagers. And the obsession people have with that is also fascinating to me.” Read more…
I’ve added new candids of Robert Pattinson spotted in London on September 18, 2010. As you may notice, the gallery files have been lost, I’m really my best to uploaded every single photos all over again. Please be patitence.
“As a person, he’s not like anyone I’ve ever met in Hollywood, and as an actor he’s a complete natural. He has no ego. Everyone loves him, but he’s una ffected by that and never seems fazed by the attention that comes his way.” – Ashley Greene (Twilight Saga)

Meanwhile the results of our Zac Efron beard poll are in, and surprisingly an overwhelming majority of you prefer the HSM star with facial fluff – a statistic we feel we should probably pass onto Zac himself as he seems to be having doubts about the new addition to his face.
At the premiere last night Zac told one reporter that his girlfriend Vanessa Hudgens wasn’t particularly fond of his beard.
“Well Vanessa finds it very itchy when I kiss her” he said. The when asked whose beard was thicker – his or Robert Pattinson’s, Zac replied: “Probably Rob’s.”

In fact, consider other great romantic figures in fiction, and a pattern starts to form: Mr Rochester? Lying toad. Mr Darcy? Emotional cripple. Edward Cullen? Controlling, and, frankly, creepy. In real life these characters would have most sensible women running for the hills. Yet confined within a book’s pages, they are strangely alluring. Perhaps it is their inaccessibility (the person who, on a blog dedicated to listing one’s favourite fictional crushes plumped for Hazel from Watership Down will know all about that). Or perhaps it’s what happens when reality is tossed aside in favour of imagination.
But while many of the great romantic figures in fiction would make for poor company, there’s no denying their charisma. Here is our list of the top 10, from high-brow to chick lit.
