The clouds are low, the sky is grey and moody. It’s a perfect day for the vampires to come out — or at least the cast and crew of New Moon, the follow-up to last year’s hit film Twilight.

Though Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart have laughed off their hooking-up reports, Emma Watson says she believes that there must be something special happens between the twosome. The depicter of Hermione Granger on “Harry Potter” recently dished on the matter in an interview with Entertainment Wise. “Oh god! He’s absolutely hot!” she talked about the British hottie. “He’s driving me crazy…But we’re just good friends and can be on the phone for hours, because I know that there’s something going on between him and Kristen Stewart.”
Emma Watson worked together with Robert Pattinson when he portrayed Cedric Diggory on “Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix” and “Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire”. Talking about the 23-year-old hunk’s sudden raise of fame, she said, “I’m really happy that Rob became so popular on ‘Twilight’. He’s so gorgeous.”
# 5 – Robert Pattinson: He puts himself into this ‘gentle’ ‘fetal like position’ to protect himself from the outside world. But then again, he has the guts to portray a gay artist named Dali and a bland, almost fatalistic guy named Art in a movie named How To Be. Is he Hollywood’s next golden boy?
Why a #5 ranking: One of the biggest news in December of 2007 was British actor Robert Pattinson being cast as the lead in the much-awaited film Twilight. Twilight is a young adult / horror / fantasy / romance novel written by author Stephenie Meyer, originally published in hardcover in 2005. The story is about seventeen-year-old Isabella Swan, a girl who moves to Forks, Washington and finds her life in danger when she falls in love with vampire Edward Cullen. We reported earlier that the character of Isabella Swan will be portrayed by Kristen Stewart. Pattinson already has a huge following after the Harry Potter film, but he is more than just a pretty face. Beating out a number of hot and rising teen actors for the Twilight role, he definitely aspires to be a great actor someday.
The young actor recently won a Best Actor award for How To Be at the Strasbourg Film Festival, which was duplicated at the First Glance Film Festival in Hollywood, California
Twilight and its sequel New Moon are not the only feature films for the actor; he also portrayed artist Salvador Dali in Little Ashes and coming up are three more exciting new films, including Unbound Captives and Remember Me.

We give you a peek at the other lines that could have made it into the film instead.
VENICE, California — In the time since it was first revealed by MTV last year, it has gone on to become one of the most famous lines in the “Twilight” world.
“You’d better hold on tight, spider monkey.”
And while an actual spider monkey isn’t nearly as cute as Kristen Stewart, the phrase has taken on a life of its own, inspiring MySpace pages, T-shirts, and dozens of other fan tributes. Now, “Twilight” director Catherine Hardwicke is cluing fans in on the eight other lines that nearly became Robert Pattinson dialogue in that “spider monkey” scene.
“There’s some stuff in here like … well, like the ‘Hold on tight, spider monkey’ line,” laughed Hardwicke last week when we visited her house to see the fabled rooms where she held her “Twilight” casting sessions. In the kitchen’s glass case, she showed us a dog-eared copy of her shooting script — with the “spider monkey” line scribbled into a margin.
“That would be [written in] the night before,” Hardwicke remembered of the evening before she shot the now-famous scene where Kristen Stewart’s Bella hops on the back of Pattinson’s Edward, getting an eye-opening glimpse at his superhuman powers as they frolic through the woods together. “I woke up in the middle of the night. I thought, ‘They’re going to be climbing that tree, and they’re not going to have anything to say. It’s just going to be another scene of them looking into each other’s eyes.’ ”
Unfortunately, the writers’ strike had begun, and “Twilight” screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg was no longer available to provide dialogue. “So I typed up, like, 10 ideas,” Hardwicke recalled. “And thought, ‘OK, maybe they could say this …’ ”
At this point during our interview, Hardwicke went over to her computer and printed out a sheet from her personal archives. Titled “Sc. 86 pt. DIALOGUE ALTERNATIVES,” the sheet lists the eight other options that Hardwicke wrote that evening. Read more…
A vast majority of Tom Felton fans reacted positively to the news that Tom could be in the running for a vampire role in Twilight. Twitter user MegTao told Feltbeats.com that she thought Tom would do the part justice. “I mean, come on, it’s Tom Felton. He fits the description of the character incredibly well.”
MegTao also thought Tom would catch on to the Riley role easily due to his similarities with Draco Malfoy. “Draco is normally calm and calculating, as is Riley,” she said. “But they both have that desperate edge to them. And, both characters really want (and need) to please their Masters.”
Pepper, another Felton fan from New York, agreed with MegTao. “Tom would be absolutely perfect,” Pepper said. “He has such a sweet and innocent nature about him, and yet he has a skill at playing (very well) a dark and complex character.”
Winner of “American Idol” season 1, Kelly Clarkson, joins the long list of A-list celebs who have a crush on Robert Pattinson, publicly admitting that she admires the British actor. “Yes, he’s an attractive guy,” she told Australia’s 2 Day “Kyle and Jackie O Show”, adding “But I think girls are more so into that whole Dracula bit. It’s very sexy … I don’t know him. I’ve never really seen him in interviews either … [But] yeah, he’s cute.”
During the same interview, Kelly also made no attempt to hide her love for Stephenie Meyer’s “Twilight” novel series. She, moreover, verified rumors of her writing a song, titled “Empty As I Am”, for the upcoming “Twilight” sequel “The Twilight Saga’s New Moon.” Read more…
More on what we briefly noted: Because the creative drought in Hollywood isn’t letting up anytime soon, what better time than the present to roll out yet another musician’s biopic? Since we’ve already dispensed with the obligatory Elvis Presley and Johnny Cash flicks and aren’t quite ready for a look into Freddie Mercury’s life, why not settle on the man who gave capable and unfortunate musicians alike a chance to sing their own “Hallelujah”s?
Currently competing for the chance to play Jeff Buckley are heart-throbs Robert Pattinson and James Franco. Since auditions and line-readings are things of a former era in the world of casting, the final decision will probably come down to whichever thesp can demonstrate the dreamiest Buckley pout.

“I don’t know how many more of these awards I can come up for because I think a little bit is coming out of my pants right now.”
– Robert Pattinson, having trouble making it to the men’s room while accepting his second of four Golden Popcorn trophies, at the MTV movie awards
You people are not going to like this. And I am so gonna love this.
You want me to talk about Robert Pattinson. You want me to wax forth about his irresistible cadaver complexion, and his Englishy English accent, and his hair, which is so vertical it can pick up radio waves from any lonely 12-year-old heart on planet Earth.
Sure, I’ll talk about him.
Here’s the truth: He is nowhere near the “hottest” twentysomething actor on the planet, at least, in the eyes of producers, directors, casting execs and me.Outside of the bubble of tabloids—and, um, E!—Pattz has little traction with the people who count. In fact, among the power players, several other young actors are kicking Pattz’ concave buttocks…
Let’s start with worldwide bankability—the ability to sell or greenlight a movie based on name, or face recognition, or reputation. Pattinson isn’t even in the top 10. Read more…
