Robert Pattinson Explains Why Sex Scene in Latest 'Twilight' Was Rated R (VIDEO)

Robert Pattinson, 'Jimmy Kimmel Live'If you thought Robert Pattinson's discussion about the sex scene that was pushing the latest 'Twilight' film into an R rating was awkward on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' (Weeknights, 12AM ET on ABC), it's even worse when you consider that his proud parents were sitting in the audience.

The rating wasn't because of any nudity seen, though. It was something far more challenging to fix, as they apparently had problems with the thrusting. That said, Pattinson said it was Kristen Stewart who pushed the boundaries and not him. So his later comment about a leash restricting his movements would have been unnecessary.

Robert Pattinson Uses Some Weird Techniques to Disguise Himself (VIDEO)

Robert Pattinson, 'Late Show with David Letterman'One of the biggest things that celebrities have to deal with is getting recognized in public. Add to that the recognition coming from playing a ridiculously popular character like Edward Cullen in the 'Twilight' series of films, and Robert Pattinson gets more than just passively recognized. He gets mobbed, though he has some interesting ideas how to avoid it on 'Late Show' (Weeknights, 11:35PM ET on CBS).

Pattinson said he actually tried simply making strange expressions to avoid getting recognized. By this, he means contorting your face, or adopting tics to "draw attention to the wrong part of your body." However, he found that this doesn't particularly work.

Clickable: The Internet Never Forgets

by Ryan McKee, posted Sep 17th 2010 5:00PM
For years, entertainment shows would dedicate entire hours to finding photos of celebrities before they were stars. We got to see high school yearbook photos of the 'Friends' cast or a candid shot of George Clooney with a mullet. And we'd marvel at how normal they looked and gasp, "Wow, celebrities really are just like us."

The Internet has pretty much killed those shows since now anyone can do a few Google searches and come up with their own montage of crazy celebrity photos. But the Tumblr blog The Internet Never Forgets has done an excellent job of not only finding photos of celebrities before they were stars, but some of the most embarrassing.

Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart Try to Avoid Making OutHey, it's Robert Pattinson! He plays Edward Cullen -- everyone's favorite abstinence glitter vampire -- in the film series 'Twilight.' On the '2010 MTV Movie Awards' (Sun., 6PM ET on MTV), he appears along with possible real-life girlfriend Kristen Stewart, in order to receive the award for 'Best Kiss.'

However, it seems that abstinence isn't just for vampire movies, as Robert and Kristen both struggle and try to avoid making out on camera. Kristen acts like she's fairly unenthusiastic: "It takes a lot of smoke and mirrors to make us look good kissing," she says. "And ... we don't want to let you guys down."

'Twilight' star Robert Pattinson said on 'The Early Show' (weekdays, 7AM ET on CBS) that the strangest tabloid story ever written about him claimed he was pregnant and trying to keep it a secret.

"My mom .... ordered a copy of this Australian gossip magazine. It was on the front cover saying I was pregnant and hiding it from people. It's absolutely true. I thought it was absolutely amazing. It was a big scandal," Pattinson said, laughing. "The most scandalous thing was the fact that I was hiding it from everyone."

Although Emilie de Ravin and Robert Pattinson shared good chemistry in the romantic drama 'Remember Me,' de Ravin said it was difficult working with the 'Twilight' star because of the public scrutiny his immense fame brings, she revealed on 'Today' (weekdays, 7AM on NBC).

"It was challenging at times, because when you've got that many eyes on you ... and you're just trying to figure out a rehearsal, you just become so self-conscious of that," de Ravin said.

Cinematical, TV Squad's detached fraternal siamese twin, also at Comic-Con

Even though TV Squad's very own John Scott Lewinski is fighting his way through hordes of overweight Rorschachs and pre-pubescent Chun Lis to get exclusive interviews and scoops on the newest TV news at the San Diego Comic Con, don't forget that our partners-in-crime from Cinematical are also there covering the latest flim-flam in film.

The movie side of the annual pop-culture cavalcade opened with one of the biggest names in the history of film and what could very well be one of the biggest names in the future of film. Director James Cameron screened a solid 25 minutes of his forthcoming sci-fi epic Avatar. Blogger Todd Gilchrist got a hint of the plot and special effects movie-goers can expect when the film hits theaters later this year and said it "promises to be both hugely entertaining and technically groundbreaking." Man, that's got me worried. That's what they also said about Titanic.

A TV series about Twilight's New Moon movie means we have too many channels

by Jason Hughes, posted Jul 20th 2009 8:27PM
The Twilight Saga: New MoonTV Guide has a couple of weekly recap shows about American Idol when it's on, but even so this seems a bit excessive. I know Twilight is a big hit with the kids, but is it big enough that we need a weekly hour-long show to build up to the premiere of New Moon, the second film in the franchise.

"This week we'll interview the cast and crew and show you some sets. Next week we can talk more to the cast and show you another piece of set. Ooh! Ooh! Wanna see an exclusive six second sneak preview of Jacob growing fur and a snout. Enthralling!" Sadly, this will probably work. If nothing else, it will get young girls watching ReelzChannel.

I have no problem with the behind-the-scenes specials we get to spotlight upcoming movies, but an entire series based on one movie seems a bit ridiculous. That said, maybe NBC should look at picking this up in case Leno doesn't work out. Make it a nightly thing. After all, there's more movies coming!

Twilight Vs. Roswell: Are aliens more romantic than vampires? - VIDEO

by Mike Moody, posted Dec 2nd 2008 10:02AM
twilight vs roswell
Even before I caught Twilight on the big screen, I was comparing it to Roswell, the great teen sci-fi/romance series that aired on The WB (and later The CW UPN) from 1999-2002. The Twilight ads and trailers seemed to tell the same story Roswell told more than nine years ago: A sensitive girl is saved by a supernatural hunk who makes it his mission to protect her at all costs. The two fall in love, but the relationship is complicated by his other-worldly circumstances.

It's not exactly the most original story in the world. This sort of thing goes back to Bram Stoker's Dracula, (and probably further back than that). Still, after watching Twilight, I was a bit shocked by its similarities to Roswell, especially since Roswell wasn't half as popular as Twilight. I haven't read the Twilight or Roswell book series, so I can't tell you if the similarities persist in print (but my friend Stephanie can). I can only compare the big screen and TV versions.

From major plot points to character motivations, these two franchises have a lot in common, but one clearly stands above the other. Let's compare, and you'll see what I mean:
