Robert Pattinson has been a paparazzi favorite since he landed the lead role in The Twilight Saga; he will now get a taste of what it’s like to be the one holding the camera--sort of. It was recently revealed that he has beem given the role of photographer Dennis Stock in the movie Life, which is inspired by real life events. The film is to be directed by Anton Corbijn.
During the 1950s, Dennis was hired by the Magnum Agency to photograph the one and only James Dean. The photographs that Dennis took of James are still receiving praise by a lot of people. The editor of Life.com, Ben Cosgrove, wrote in an article that Dennis’ pictures do more than just create a diversion. “They offer us a chance to experience the jolt that must have raced through countless readers in the late winter of 1955, as they gazed at Stock’s portraits of this strange, beautiful, thrilling young star, all the while knowing, that he would be with them starting in movies for years and years to come.”
Patti Smith, the Bohemian Queen, is adapting her memoir, Just Kids for the big screen. The book was released two-years ago and there’s been nothing but buzz about the roles of Smith and Robert Mapplethorpe (Smith’s partner) since the project was first announced.
Apparently, Ms. Smith has a pair of leads in mind and her choices might just surprise you – Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson. But, don’t judge, her reasoning is pretty spot on. Stewart is "not conventionally beautiful," and Pattinson is "a bit shy, and a bit stoic."
So, who else is in the running? She mentions Mia Wasikowska, and even suggests Saoirse Ronan. As for Mapplethorpe, we think James Franco could be a sweet match.

Two-months after news broke that Kristen Stewart cheated on her hearthrob boyfriend of three-years Robert Pattinson, the couple are reportedly back together. Just like Edward and Bella, the couple might just have what it takes to have eternal love just like their on-screen characters.
When Pattinson finally started accepting Stewarts calls, he started to change his tune, according to Us weekly reports. "He started thinking nobody else would understand his life," his rational voice told him not to toss a three-year relationship for one infidelity." "They have a very deep connection," explained a source.
Stewart, however, still needs to win over Pattinson's friends who apparently think that she will hurt him again and do not want to see their dear friend go through even more public humiliation.
What do you think? Will Robsten stay together this time round?
The sexy Twilight star takes on American hero for his next role. Pattinson will play Eric Maddox, a military interrogator who led the 2003 capture of Saddam Hussein. Twilight fans will get to see their favorite vampire play a soldier, a role that is completely different from what we are used to seeing Rpatz portray. The movie is set to begin filming in the next few months, after Pattinson promotes his latest flick, Cosmopolis, at the Cannes Film Festival.
The movie is destined to be a thriller as it will be directed by Jean-Stéphane Sauvaire, with a screenplay by Band of Brothers' Eric Jendresen. The movie is based on the book Mission: Black List #1,written by Eric Maddox with Davin Seay. We cannot wait to see Rpatz in a more serious role.
Do we smell a possible Oscar in the next year? We sure hope so!
Now that the excitement and buzz over the release of Twilight Breaking Dawn: Part 1, Twi-hards have directed their attention to: the dress. Seriously, the anticipation for this wedding rivals that of actual nuptials taking place this year: Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, K and K Kardashian, Gene and Shannon Simmons--finally. We have to say, we were impressed. It couldn’t have been an easy task to create the perfect wedding dress for Bella’s inherent beauty juxtaposed with her undeniable awkwardness. But what this dress really conveys is her simplicity that will soon give way to the sexy sultriness of the Cullen clan. According to the saga.
On and off-screen lovers Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart have gotten themselves a sweet London pad!
The Twilight lovebirds have rented a nice, high-priced apartment in Notting Hill. There are scant details about the new place, but what we do know is it is a modern styled apartment, using a lot of nude color shades, with an amazing rooftop deck and incredible views of the London city skyline. We are so jealous of Kristen! Well, obviously for more reasons other than her cool new apartment like, um...her HOT roommate!
The couple chose the apartment because of its perfect location. Not only is it in the same area for their stop for the Breaking Dawn tour, It's also really convenient for Kristen because she is currently filming Snow White and the Huntsman in London as well.
Surely, Rob enjoys spending some time in London, being it is where he was born and raised. We think it's sweet that Rob will be able to share with Kristen what it was like for him to grow up in there.
We wish them the best with their new apartment in the beautiful (and cozy!) Notting Hill area. Again, feel free to express your jealousy.
[Insert a Darth Vader style "Noooo!"] I've been waiting for the new Twilight movie for months now. Sadly, I must admit, I got Twilighted last Christmas when I was sitting around gluttonous and bored back home in California. So we fired up the DVD player and I caught up on all the Bella/Edward action in about 6 hours flat. No, they're not the greatest movies of all time, but they have entertainment value and you gotta admit, it's a pretty damn good love story. While Kristen Stewart tends to be as wooden and emotionless as a no. 2 pencil, the storyline is so good, the movie-goer can grin and bear it...usually.
