Baby... could you please remember how to smile and not look vaguely freaked out by the questions you're being asked? They're pretty standard, I'm not understanding why you look so pissed off and uncomfortable.
(Shhh... don't worry. I still love you.)

From the press release (via EclipseMovie):
In a ten-page fashion spread and interview, the actress discusses her independent film, Skateland, as it debuts at the Sundance Film Festival. She also shares a behind the scenes glimpse at filming The Twilight Saga movies and discusses her most recent endeavor, landing the lead in the new Warner Bros. thriller The Apparition. “To actually be the lead of a studio film and to have input on it is just really cool.” said Greene.
Sounds very cool. If we find more quotes or pictures, we’ll be sure to post them.
Peter said were’re going to see Dr. Carlisle Cullen in a new light when ‘Eclipse” rolls around. He stated, “You get to see a side of Carlisle you haven’t seen before. There are some great battle sequences.” he also said that he didn’t know anything about “Breaking Dawn,” which will be the Twilight Saga’s 4th installment. He said, “I don’t know. Usually, the fans know before we do.” He expressed how great the “Twilight Saga” fans are. He stated, “The fan base has been so phenomenal. When you go to an event, people have flown in from other countries just to take a picture with you. That is a loyal fan base that you can’t even imagine having. I am thankful for all of them. That is why I try to give back in connecting with them on Twitter.”
Next, Peter explained how he was able to juggle filming the “Nurse Jackie” show and “Twilight Saga: Eclipse” at the same time. He said, “I have had a very crazy schedule. There was a whole month where I was shooting ‘Eclipse’ and “Nurse Jackie” at the same time. And I actually enjoyed it because I enjoy what I do, so when I show up for work, it’s very invigorating, and I get energized by it. So there were times where I’d get off an airplane from a red-eye and have, like, three hours sleep and then go straight to work. Because I was doing both projects at the same time, I wore a wig. There were days when I was literally running hours in the forest; then, I would jump on a plane and be on the “Nurse Jackie” set. I was going from Vancouver to New York like every three days.”
And here's the trailer for her other 2010 film, "The Yellow Handkerchief," a charming and provocative indie that hits limited theaters on Friday, Feb.12.
We've seen it and she is completely winning. We think it's her best role yet. Check it out. It also stars William Hurt and Maria Bello.
"The Runaways" (March 19)
What more can we write about this eagerly anticipated biopic covering the '70s rockers who broke boundaries, hearts and more than a few pieces of their own equipment? Kristen Stewart rocks out alongside Dakota Fanning, Scout Taylor-Compton and Alia Shawkat, and if the trailer we premiered last month is any indication, this film could prove to the haters that KStew is a lot more than just Bella Swan. Kristen as Joan Jett? Put another dime in the jukebox, baby.
"Remember Me" (March 12)
All of Hollywood is asking one simple question these days: Can Rob Pattinson open a non-"Twilight" movie? We'll find out soon enough, as he stars alongside Emilie de Ravin in this romantic drama that similarly involves family, tragedy and issues of eternal love — but minus the bloodsucking.
Kellan Lutz finally lands his first starring role in this indie film about a lacrosse player who reacts to his father's death by rebelling against anything he can find — until his dad's old Marine buddy becomes determined to straighten him out. Besides the fact that it gives "Twilight" fans a double dose of their favorite stars, there's something oddly fascinating about the fact that Ashley Greene plays Kellan's girlfriend.
"Welcome to the Rileys" (TBD)
James Gandolfini is Doug, a man whose life is in shambles since his daughter was killed eight years ago. Kristen Stewart is Mallory, a 16-year-old stripper who offers him sex — but all he wants is someone to be with while he gets his head together. As Doug's wife also comes into the equation, the couple find themselves acting as surrogate parents for the wayward teen. All reports are that it's KStew's most adult role yet — and we'll learn plenty more soon enough as the Sundance reports roll in.
Like so many of his franchise co-stars, Jackson Rathbone will aim to bust out as a leading man in 2010. This intense indie film has Jacksper playing a man caught up in an unorthodox love triangle involving a man with Down syndrome. Jackson is providing the soundtrack through his band 100 Monkeys, and if their music is any indication this will be a film that isn't afraid to take some risks.
"Scott Pilgrim vs. the World" (TBD)
Even if "Twilight" star Anna Kendrick weren't in this, it would still be one of our most anticipated films of the year. Based on the beloved Bryan Lee O'Malley graphic novels, the movie focuses on a 23-year-old slacker (Michael Cera) who falls in love with a girl (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) but has to battle her seven evil ex-boyfriends if he wants to get a chance with her. Kendrick has said the film is "really fun" and that she spends the whole movie screaming at Michael Cera on the phone — sounds good enough for us!
"Eclipse" (June 30)
It's the big kahuna, the top dog, the whole enchilada. And so far, virtually nothing has been released that gives us any indication of what David Slade's "Twilight" movie will be like. Who are we kidding? We're there anyway.
"Valentine's Day" (February 12)
OK, so half of Hollywood is in this movie. But the two that "Twilight" fans will care about most are Taylor Swift and Taylor Lautner — in his first post-"Saga" acting appearance. It promises to be this year's "He's Just Not That Into You," and all indications are that the Taylors have a small amount of screen time. But they spend it making out — so how can you not be curious?
"The Last Airbender" (July 2)
Now we all understand why they dropped "Avatar" from the title. But although this M. Night Shyamalan-directed adaptation of the popular kids' franchise might not make a billion dollars, it still seems likely to be the biggest non-"Twilight" blockbuster that any of the franchise's alumni will be involved with this year. Jackson Rathbone stars as Sokka, a warrior who wields swords and martial arts as powerfully as Jasper Hale does that creepy stare.
Over the last few years, it's been fascinating to watch all the "Twilight" stars navigate their own unique paths from obscurity to ubiquity. Miss Ashley Greene has used her fashion sense and well-spoken demeanor to make the most out of her minimal screen time as Alice Cullen — and now she may be ready to take the next step with this '80s drama about a small-town Texas skating rink. Lucky Twilighters venturing to Sundance will be able to catch a sneak peek of the flick, which should prove that Ashley is ready to take off the training wheels.
BTW - this list isn't comprehensive. There are other movies coming out that involve other Twi actors. Be on the lookout for 'em at your local theater!

I thought this was a cute piture of Joan Jett, Kristen Stewart and Dakota Fanning.
From LA Times:
“I talked to her all the time,” Stewart said of Jett on the carpet, appearing
decidedly punk in an unzipped black hoodie, t-shirt and jeans. “To tell you what
it was about would be me summing up for a soundbyte. And I don’t want to do
She paused, knitted her brow and then continued.
incredibly outspoken and embodies freedom in every way,” Stewart said. “It

When the sisterhood first ventured out, veteran blogging site Confession of a TwiCrack Head helped us out, and we want to pay it forward to the newbie Twilight Bloggers. Like Chris Weitz said, "Its sharing information and keeping the frenzy going."
Our first guest in the Newborn Corner is…..
Twiworld 24/7 has spunk, creativity, humor, a little craziness, and above all, a love for the Cullen's. The blog is fun to read, and Twiworld 24/7 (AKA Deejay) has a lot of great insights on the Twilight phenomenon.
My favorite part of this blog (aside from the pics of Mr. Lutz) is the idea for the Blogger's Book Club. Twiworld 24/7 blogged about having a book club stating that, "this is not a typical book club, it will be much differen't," where all the Twihard fans can express their thoughts about the books, chapter by chapter, starting with Eclipse. GASP! You mean not starting with the first book, Twilight?? But you see that is why I like this blog. It is written in a free spirited way and throws a little fun in the mix.
Now, the blogger book club has not yet started, and I think that with some more support (and followers) Twiworld 24/7 will become a favorite in the Twilight Blogging world. This is the purpose for the Newborn Corner...give the newbie bloggers some exposure and support so that they can continue to entertain us with new ideas and opinions on all things Twilight.
Show your support for our newbie blog in this weeks Newborn Corner, and check out...

There's also a James doll, which I think is hot.
Victoria (love the hair)
My name is Nancy (also known as nancita in twitter world) and I'm here to introduce myself, although some of you already know me whether through twitter or I met you at Comic Con 09. I actually came to know about the sisterhood from Maria whom I met in a forum for a Colombian singer known as Juanes.
I never actually knew much about Twilight until I became submerged in the books after watching the movie. Yeah, I did it backwards. Anyway, I'm excited to be part of the blog and having the opportunity to get to know all of you! Thanks to Nessa for the opportunity!
Just to share a little bit about me: I'm 25, working towards my BA in Interior Design and will be soon relocating to California. I love the sisterhood so much, I'm heading toward the HQ. Just kidding, I am relocating for educational purposes and I'm just lucky that a lot of the sisters are there. :)
Enough about me, I'm really looking forward to hear more about you! Feel free to follow me on twitter (shameless plug http://twitter.com/nancitastwittah) or shoot me an e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.
I wanted to introduce myself, as I am a new blogger to the Twilight Sisterhood. My name is Kelsey (AKA MissTwiShopper) and I reside in Gig Harbor, WA, about 2 short hours away from Forks. I am a full time student, a part time server, a social networking guru, a daughter, sister, girlfriend, an awesome friend (if I do say so myself), and now an official TS Blogger! Yay!
Of course I am BIG Twilight fan, and when asked, "Team Edward? or Team Jacob?" it is Team Edward every time!!
I am so excited to be a part of the Twilight Sisterhood, and I can't wait to get started blogging.

“I have a 12-year-old daughter [Luca Bella, whose mom is Jennie Garth]. She’s a fan and I’d want her not to feel left out or awkward,” Peter, 37, explained to HollywoodLife.comexclusively Jan. 16 at Lionsgate’s pre-Golden Globes party.
“Hopefully it’s a PG-13 type of situation,” he added. “I’m sure the producers and directors know what they want—and especially what they are doing—but I’m sure they don’t want to alienate fans.”
What do you think? Would you be okay with a PG-13 / fade to black for Breaking Dawn?

So, it looks like Nessa didn’t screen the resumes too well when she asked for new bloggers, because here I am!
I’m RobotMoose. By day I’m a Robotics Engineer. By evening I’m wife to Mr. Moose and mommy to Toddler Moose. By night I’m a fanfic writer and reader.

I’d love to say I’m a member of a local chapter of the Sisterhood, but I’m pretty sure I’m the only one in my small mountain town that is a member of the Twi Sisterhood. The closest city is two hours away. So I think I’m it for where I live.
Because I’m not busy enough, I’ve decided to add a Baby Moose into the mix. He should make his grand appearance at the beginning of May.
I love all things Twilight, from the story, to the characters in the movies, to the actors in the movies, to everything else on the periphery. I LOVE to read books and can often be found with one in my hand when not at work or on the computer at home.
Within the fandom/Twi-world, my lust, love, desire, interests and lady bits lie with this band:
YEN PRESS ANNOUNCES TWILIGHT: THE GRAPHIC NOVEL, VOL. 1 WILL GO ON-SALE ON MARCH 16, 2010
NEW YORK, NY (January 20, 2010) — Yen Press, the graphic novel imprint of Hachette Book Group, announced that it will publish the highly-anticipated first volume in the graphic novel adaptation of Stephenie Meyer's Twilight on March 16, 2010. Twilight: The Graphic Novel, Volume 1 will be released in hardcover for $19.99 ($22.99 CAN) with a first printing of 350,000 copies. As is typical in graphic novel publishing, due to the length of the prose novel, the book will be divided into two volumes and the release date for the second volume is forthcoming.
Twilight: The Graphic Novel contains selected text from Meyer's original novel with illustrations by Korean artist Young Kim. A rare fusion of Asian and Western comic techniques is reflected in this black-and-white graphic novel with color interspersed throughout. Meyer consulted throughout the artistic process and had input on every panel.
"I've enjoyed working on this new interpretation of Twilight," said Meyer. "Young has done an incredible job transforming the words that I have written into beautiful images. The characters and settings are very close to what I was imagining while writing the series."
Kurt Hassler, Yen Press Publishing Director, said, "Few American publishing properties are better suited to introduce a vast readership to the medium of graphic novel than the phenomenon that is Stephenie Meyer's Twilight. Yen Press will certainly continue to expand this audience with the help of Bella and Edward."
In four years, Stephenie Meyer has become a worldwide publishing phenomenon. The Twilight Saga’s translation rights have been sold in nearly 50 countries and 85 million copies have been sold worldwide.

Austrailian beauty, Emilie de Ravin sits down with MTV to talk about 'Remember Me' and returning to the hit show 'Lost'.
MTV: You're returning to a TV show everyone is obsessed with, you're co-starring opposite one of the biggest actors on the planet — does 2010 feel like it's going to be a really big year for you?
Emilie de Ravin: Yeah, I'm insanely excited. The show's been fantastic, and I had season five off, so I had the opportunity to do some other projects, including "Remember Me." Being surrounded by all these talented groups of people inspires you so much. And with the show ending, it's bittersweet — sad, but fantastic they're ending on a high note. You don't want to be the last ones left at the party!
MTV: So how did "Remember Me" come your way? Did you have to read with Rob?
De Ravin: They'd been looking to cast my role for a while, looking at a lot of different girls. I read the script three weeks before they started shooting. I flew to New York to test with Rob and we immediately got along and had instant great chemistry, which is not an easy thing to come by. Obviously you're acting, but you want to have that connection with somebody. We had it. And I was thrown into a wardrobe fitting that same day.
MTV: Before you were cast, did you have a sense of all the craziness that surrounds Rob everywhere he goes?
De Ravin: I suppose I did, but it was not something I thought about until I got to set that first day and was like, "Ooooh, OK." Probably 90 percent of the film we shot on location, mainly in Manhattan, and having the paparazzi and fans coming to watch, it adds, um, another element. You have to focus much more.
MTV: Was it just nuts?
De Ravin: There were a lot of crazy moments where you're filming on location and you're waiting for people to get out of the shot. People don't want to move. Rob and I would laugh about that. There was a scene where we're on a date at a carnival, and it was very exposed to media, paparazzi and fans. We were rehearsing, and you become so self-conscious of people watching you, and we both stopped and looked at each other and were like, "Wait, what are we doing?" You're taken out of your work mentality with hundreds of people watching you when you're just trying to figure out your scene.
MTV: What was your relationship with Rob like off-camera?
De Ravin: It was so great being able to work with someone you immediately get along with and is incredibly talented and is driven to make the film as good as we can. Having someone you can go and talk with about a scene, and it's all very casual and easy, that made filming such a delight — having a friendship level and a commitment to the script. The way Rob and I developed our relationship onscreen was very natural, and just seeing what happened with scenes, what happens in the moment.
MTV: But you're telling me you guys didn't watch "Twilight" together in your trailer every day?
De Ravin: No! I hadn't seen the films prior to shooting. They're great. They're such a different genre to this film. "Twilight" and "Remember Me" couldn't be more different. Not so many similarities between Edward Cullen and Tyler.
MTV: So you play Ally, a college student who falls for Pattinson's Tyler. Tell me a bit about the relationship between these two characters.
De Ravin: The relationship between Ally and Tyler is so beautifully developed. It's such an honest, organic, real love story. It's not your typical Hollywood love story. Neither one of them were really looking for it, but it just happened. Obviously there's a physical attraction, but also that thing you can't put into words. They're brought together in very random circumstances. It's not love at first sight, but they're intrigued at first sight. They've both had major family tragedies that, prior to their relationship, have closed them off, thinking no one can understand the way they really feel. They just get each other. There's no false performance. It's all open and who they are. That's sometimes beautiful and sometimes ugly and sometimes frustrating, but it's all on the table.
MTV: About "Lost," you weren't in the fifth season at all. Was it hard to slip back into the character of Claire, or was it just like riding a bike?
De Ravin: I'd been playing her for four years, so it was kind of like riding a bike. I quite like that analogy. But when I'm coming back to the Island, I'm coming back in a pretty unexpected way and there's a whole other Claire for me to explore and play with, which has been so much fun, but also getting to play with who I was, with flashback stuff.
MTV: What do you mean about a "whole other Claire"?
De Ravin: Without being murdered in my sleep due to exposing secrets of the series, it's a different Claire, a different side of her, one I never thought I'd be playing. That's all I can say.
MTV: Did you watch the fifth season while you were away?
De Ravin: I made a conscious decision not to watch season five because Claire wasn't there, so I thought it was interesting to not be too in touch with what was going on with the other characters. That gave another side to the mystery for me, but there's already enough bloody mystery going on, isn't there? Even more!
MTV: Is there one mystery as a fan that you'd like to have answered at the end?
De Ravin: There was a lot of talk about how Claire's baby, Aaron, was a big key to why we're all there and what's going to happen and that he could be the element of letting us know that. As of now, I don't know, but there's something interesting going on there. I want to know!
MTV: Looking beyond 2010, do you have any personal or professional goals? Any director you'd like to work with or a genre that intrigues you?
De Ravin: I'd like to play with a period piece. Playing a girl next door in 2010 is so different from playing one in 1950, the way you talk, walk, dress, relationships. It's really fun studying all that. It's so cool.
3)The last two issues of Rolling Stone have been devoted to the decade’s best music and the climate-warming crisis — and neither cover featured a photograph. But next week when our new issue hits stands there will be rock on the cover, and that rock star (or stars) will show a bit of flesh. Who’s exposed in our new issue?
And a hand!
