Miles Teller is the latest addition to the club of celebrities who publicly diss the franchises their associated with. In September he Teller told W Magazine that his Divergent role wasn’t “an interesting part” and that he took the role solely for “business reasons.” He also revealed to the magazine that he told his agent it “sucks.” He said working on the adaptation made him feel “dead inside.” Harsh considering the movie with an international automatic fan-base built in from the movies and his character will be included in the sequel, Insurgent.

An Open Letter to Robert Pattinson

Dear Rob,

I hope you don’t find this too informal. It’s just that, I feel like I know you. I mean we technically grew up together, if you recall. First, you captured my heart (and broke it) as Cedric Diggory in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. By the way, just so you know, that fictional death has yet to not render tears (okay, they’re more like sobs… but what happens while watching Harry Potter is between me and my television screen only) every single time I watch it. Kudos, my friend. I can usually move passed on-screen deaths after I’ve seen them multiple times, but yours will forever make me feel irrevocably (or at least, it feels that way in the moment) depressed.

But then by God’s good graces, or perhaps the sheer brilliance of Mary Tricia Wood, Deborah Aquila and Catherine Hardwicke, you were cast as Edward Cullen in The Twilight Saga, and for the duration of my high school years I could swoon over the intelligent, self-deprecating version of you with the rest of the world. And it was even better because you playing this role meant I got to see you in multiple interviews, like, all the time. You sat in front of the camera with nothing to prove and let your witty and charming personality pour out without filter. Needless to say, in these pivotal moments I knew that our love precedes physical attraction alone. Is it okay that I say “our” love? Not stepping too far? Okay, good.

Did it stop there? Oh, no, Rob. You then proceeded to take on the roles of Tyler in Remember Me, and Jacob in Water for Elephants, delivering a performance in both films that both impressed me and made me fall even more in love with you. Which is strange, you know, considering I already had a life-size standup of you in my bedroom at the time. I thought that kind of meant I would top out in the way I felt for you… but this love is one that just keeps on giving.

So, it’s in this moment that I must ask you straight up: Are you quitting acting? Rumors have been stirring around the Internet, saying that you’re done being in front of the camera. Why, Rob, oh why would you do that to me? Don’t you know how much I’d miss you running your fingers through that insanely beautiful, messy head of hair? I think I speak for a large percent of the population when I say that you’d be bowing out way, way too soon. Besides, if you quit acting and fade out of the spotlight, how am I ever going to find you when I graduate and am ready to get married? Think about it.

Sincerely,

Brailey

4 Actors Who Will Never Be Able to Break Away From That One, Iconic Role

When I say the name Samuel L. Jackson, I’m sure Pulp Fiction comes to mind. Or, when I mention Johnny Depp, I bet that most of you start picturing the rustic English pirate with dreadlocks, Captain Jack Sparrow. What about Sarah Jessica Parker or, should I just say Carrie Bradshaw?

These are just a few actors of many that have played an iconic role, one for which they will always be remembered. But, due to the success of these actors, they’ve gone on to play other roles…just, maybe, ones that aren’t quite as iconic.

I’d like to name a few actors who’ve played iconic roles but have yet to break away from them. Continue reading

Are there more Twilight movies on the way? Back in June, rumors were swirling that a reboot of the original series was being considered by Summit Entertainment, but the studio swiftly responded by saying no reboot was planned. Summit is not, however, as swift to knock down the recent rumors that a new series of movies set in the world of Twilight could be on the way. With Breaking Dawn: Part II introducing a smorgasbord of new vampire clans, a new set of movies following the lives and loves of vampires and mortals would have no shortage of characters to choose from.

Are Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart back together? Has she been forgiven?

Image Credit: Crestock

Are R-Patz and K-Stew back together again? Rumour has it they are! Cue the uproar of ‘Trampire’ haters and all over the world. The pair split up just a few months ago, due to Kristen’s little liaison with ‘Snow White and The Huntsman‘ director Rupert Sanders, evoking hate from ‘Twilight’ fans and ‘Team Edward’ obsessives everywhere.. *How could she do this to  Rob?* (just remember girlies, it takes two to tango!) The news broke, Kristen was in tatters, R-Patz moved out – so much scandal and drama! BUT that was then, reports suggest that the couple have decided to try and rekindle the flame. According to British tabloid The Sun, 26-year-old R-Patz has forgiven her ‘stupid mistake’ during an emotional heart-to-heart with the 22-year-old. Sources claim, “They pretty much decided they couldn’t live without each other. Kristen poured her heart out to Robert and told him it was a one-off and a mistake.” Shortly after news of the affair hit headlines, Rob went to stay at Hollywood pal, Reese Witherspoon’s California Ranch. Reports claim, K-Stew’s father, John, visited him there, acting as a go-between for the couple, begging him to patch things up with his heartbroken daughter. It seems like it’s worked! He’s a smitten Brit. “Rob sees it as Kristen made a really stupid mistake. After a lot of long tearful talks, they’ve worked it out. Rob can see how truly sorry Kristen is and has totally forgiven her. They really do love each other.” The young lovers are claimed to have moved into a secluded pad in the same Los Angeles compound where Brad and Ange also have a place.

The reconciliation comes just before the ‘Breaking Dawn: Part 2’ promotional tour. Phew! We’ve been spared of a few very awkward red carpet moments! What do you think of the revelations? You might say he should have never forgiven her, ‘a leopard never changes it’s spots’, ‘if she loved him she wouldn’t have cheated in the first place’, the list is never-ending but everyone makes mistakes, famous or not famous and everyone deserves a second chance, right? Cue the sound of teen girl hearts breaking everywhere.
