The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2 won in seven categories at the 33rd Golden Raspberry Awards in California last night. The vampire series - whose stars Kristen Stewart, Taylor Lautner and Mackenzie Foy won solo prizes - dominated at the annual ceremony, which celebrates the worst movies in Hollywood.
As well as being named Worst Picture and Worst Prequel, Remake, Rip-off or Sequel, the entire cast picked up a gong for Worst Screen Ensemble. Individually, Kristen Stewart was awarded with Worst Actress (also for her role in Snow White and the Huntsman) while Bill Condon picked up the Worst Director prize.
Meanwhile, Taylor Lautner was recognized individually with Worst Supporting Actor and collectively with Mackenzie Foy as they were named Worst Screen Couple.
Elsewhere, after he swept the boards with every award at last year's ceremony, Adam Sandler won Worst Actor for his role in That's My Boy, which beat The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2 for Worst Screenplay.
Kristen Stewart is "creeped" out by fans of the book Fifty Shades of Grey.
The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 star - whose boyfriend and co-star Robert Pattinson is being hotly tipped to secure the lead role of Christian Grey in the big screen adaptation - admitted that although she has only read a few pages of the erotic novel she finds it disturbing.
"I've skimmed parts of it. When I read the first few pages describing her messy hair, I was like, 'This is so strange.' But it's just so raunchy! I mean, obviously, everyone knows that. But when I see people reading it on planes and stuff, I'm genuinely creeped out. Like, you're basically just reading porn right now! Get that blanket off your lap!"
The actress's boyfriend of four years Robert Pattinson was considered a favorite to play the starring role in the film version of bestseller because the role is based on his character Edward in the Twilight Saga franchise. But according to new reports the British star may be too busy working on other projects to take on the role.
Kristen Stewart has reportedly pulled out of the London premiere of her new movie On The Road because she is too embarrassed to appear in public in the wake of her cheating scandal.
The 22-year-old actress was originally planning to walk the red carpet for the film version of Jack Kerouac's classic novel on August 16 - but with her co-star Tom Sturridge, a close friend of Robert Pattinson.
"Kristen won't be doing the red carpet for On The Road - she's too ashamed to show her face in public right now. After everything that has been said, and in light of the revelations that she cheated on Robert with director Rupert Sanders, she's running scared at the moment. There's also the dilemma of standing next to her co-star in the movie, Tom Sturridge. He's very close to Rob and Kristen thinks it would be awkward for her to promote the movie on the red carpet alongside him. Kristen is very proud of her work for On The Road, she grew up reading Kerouac novels and this is a production she always wanted to star in," an insider said.
Robert Pattinson wants to take on the role of James Bond after 20 more years of experience in his acting career. The 26-year-old star wants to play Ian Fleming's iconic spy but thinks he'll be perfect for the role in two more decades.
"Yeah, I'd definitely like to go for Bond, but in more like 20 years. There'd be nothing worse than, like, 'Let's get a fresh-faced Bond!' That would be the worst idea in the world. It would be ridiculous to reinvent it as some young posh kid. After Daniel Craig you have to have some baggage. I'd have to be tortured in the first few scenes. I'd have to do the first film with one arm or something."
The Twilight Saga star added that he is becoming more conscious about his health as he gets older: "I think 26 is the turning point. I've got to make up for 10 years of living like a degenerate. I've suddenly become conscious of being unhealthy. You've spent every bit of free time since the age of 15 in a pub. And suddenly you're like: 'Oh God, I don't want to be this grey ghost sitting there with a pot belly. I've got to get it together.'"
Robert Pattinson says most movie scripts are "s**t."
The Twilight Saga star plays the lead role in David Cronenberg's new movie Cosmopolis, and Robert revealed the script stood out for him because it was so well written in comparison to most others.
"[With Cosmopolis] there was such a specific voice from the very beginning. It's just really well written. Most scripts are really s**t and you're just thinking 'how can I make it better?' but this one, all you had to do was just say it. A really s****y actor could just sit there and say it and make it sound really good."
Robert rose to fame playing vampire Edward Cullen in the Twilight franchise and revealed he hopes to use his star power to make smaller movies that wouldn't otherwise get the funding to be made: "When you get some kind of success quite quickly you have to pay for it somehow, pay your dues and stuff. I want to support the whole part of the industry that I like and got me interested in film. With the limited amount of power I have I would love to use it to get indies which never would be made or seen, hopefully seen. And also I just want seem cool!"
Robert Pattinson doesn't think he'd return to the Twilight Saga for "a billion dollars."
The British actor has portrayed vampire Edward Cullen in all five movies of the series and admits the thing he was most pleased about coming to an end was wearing uncomfortable contact lenses for the role.
"It's a relief not to put the contact lenses in. It's been absolutely awful having those stupid things in my eyes. Even if they said, 'We'll give you a billion dollars to do it again,' I don't know that I'd want to."
Robert can next be seen starring as billionaire tycoon Eric Packer in Cosmopolis and says the film has given him the "happiest moments" of his life: "I saw Cosmopolis and liked it. I don't normally like my stuff but I didn't really recognize myself. I was so terrified to do it at the beginning and thought I was going to f**k it up and everyone's going to say, '[Director] David Cronenberg's sold out...' so to get it to Cannes was the coolest thing ever. Getting this movie, getting it into Cannes and getting the movie I got recently are three of the happiest moments of my life."
Robert Pattinson has blasted film age restrictions as "crazy."
The Twilight Saga heartthrob claims adult movies shouldn't be subject to strict restrictions since most teenagers already have access to pornography on the internet, and thinks violence is more damaging than sex.
The 26 year old actor - who currently stars as a billionaire embarking upon a violence-ridden 24 hour journey across Manhattan in David Cronenberg's Cosmopolis - told The Sun, "You're immediately in the highest rating with things to do with sex. But you can have violence. It's like, 'What?!' It's completely crazy. I don't think there's anything in Cosmopolis that's particularly... there's nothing bad. I don't think there's anything that would have shocked me when I was 13. Especially when every single kid nowadays probably watches hardcore pornography on the internet. It's no worse - in fact, it's a lot better."
Robert has a wild threesome in the film and shoots himself in the hand but he insists it's not as violent as people make out: "I'm not worried about the violence or the sex or anything like that. Transformers is more violent than Cosmopolis."
Robert Pattinson isn't "buff enough" to be an action star.
The Twilight Saga hunk admitted he would prefer to make smaller, gritty dramas rather than take on blockbuster roles because he thinks he doesn't have the physique to be an action hero.
"If there is a way to maintain a career doing small, interesting movies I would take that option. I'm not buff enough for robot movies."
Robert also revealed he lacks confidence in his abilities and isn't expecting anyone to go wild for his latest movie Cosmopolis: "That's my biggest problem, confidence. I'm taking baby steps and hoping people will keep employing me. I can't see tons of people watching Cosmopolis and screaming at it. It would be amazing if they did."
Robert Pattinson was cast in Cosmopolis because he didn't understand it.
The British actor plays billionaire tycoon Eric Packer in the movie - set in a futuristic New York, which is in turmoil because of the decline of capitalism - and thinks being "lost and confused" when reading the script worked in his favor.
"It's funny, I kept saying when I read it, 'I can't understand,' I told David [Cronenberg, director] I didn't understand it. I kind of still, I watch it and I want to imagine something else, and I guess that's how I was trying to play it, like just imagining something as something else the whole time, and not being able to identify it. David quite quickly realized that what he liked was when I didn't have any idea what I was doing, like I mean I was sort of sitting there, completely lost and confused, and he was like, 'That was the one!'"
Robert Pattinson spent two weeks "worrying" about playing a billionaire in Cosmopolis.
The Twilight actor locked himself in his hotel room for a fortnight prior to shooting the drama movie - which sees him play Eric Packer, a multi-billionaire Wall Street CEO - but he was calmed down by director David Cronenberg who reassured him that his talent would bring out the best in his alter-ego.
"The preparation, I kind of spent two weeks in my hotel room worrying and confusing myself. I remember the weekend before we started shooting, I called David to talk to him about it, to ask him 'one question' like, 'Want to talk about the movie for a bit?' So then I went round to David's house and he said, 'It doesn't really matter. Let's just start, then something will happen.' I think Eric Packer's impossible to approach like you would a normal character."
The 26-year-old star felt the film script was more like lyrics from a song which he found "easier" to comprehend and as a result he didn't want to alter any of the words.
