My flatmate was indignant this morning when she turned on her laptop to read an article on People.com about Ashley Greene. Greene spoke to Seventeen about Robert Pattinson and Kellan Lutz, explaining that:
"When I met Rob, I didn't think twice about him. He's really attractive, but that chemistry wasn't there. He gets a lot of attention from (girls), but he doesn't quite understand it because before Twilight, he was just a guy from Harry Potter. (Rob) doesn’t understand girls.”
By contrast, Greene conceded that she’s “definitely thought about” hooking up with Kellan Lutz but:
"He's one of my best friends, but if we were going to be romantic, we would have done it years ago! I like having him to talk to about other guys to get that male perspective. I really cherish our relationship, so I wouldn't want to mess that up by dating."
The flatmate interpreted this to mean that Ashley thinks Kellan is better than Pattinson. And therefore Ashley is a dumb twat. Might be a bit of an overreaction but in principle, I agree. On all counts. Pattinson, while not my preference, is clearly superior to Kellan Lutz. Can Kellan Lutz carry on a proper conversation without flicking his own nipples? He and Greene as you know are said to be holding out on their Twilight contracts, demanding more money because suddenly they’ve become critical to the franchise.
The fans, as long as Pattinson is kissing Stewart, don’t give a sh-t about much else. They’ll get over the replacement of Greene and Lutz. So obscurity is the word if they don’t take their heads out of their asses.
As for Pattinson, he taped an appearance on the Ellen Degeneres show yesterday that will air today. Gave the Twi-Hards a good look at his new short hair. It looks great. Really, really great. Like Xavier Dolan’s. Maybe not quite as dramatic but then again, not everyone is Xavier Dolan.
Xavier Dolan is the 21 year of phenom director from Quebec who won 3 awards in Cannes last year for J’ai Tue Ma Mere and is back this year with Les Amours Imaginaires. He’s gorgeous. And so talented. And arty. And serious. And very, very celebrated at the festival and his hair is my current favourite and I’m in love with him so much and it’s only a matter of time before Tom Ford and Karl Lagerfeld will be fighting over him. Rein in your bitches because they will come stampeding.
Various photos of Xavier at Cannes attached. And the Pattinson teaser from Ellen is below.
