According to The Daily Mail, Courtney Love is hoping to set up her 16-year-old daughter Frances Bean with Robert Pattinson, the 22-year-old star of Twilight. Maybe it's true. Or maybe it's just another drug-induced delusional fantasy invented by the woman who almost never fails to behave badly.
Two fairytale love stories are wooing theatergoers this season. If you have but $12.50 (as ludicrous New York City rates go) to spend, skip Twilight, the teen vampire tale, and see Slumdog Millionaire instead. The Golden Globe Best Picture nominated film is about two destitute Indian orphans from Mumbai whose fates take them on two different, equally harrowing paths before reuniting, in part, thanks to the television game show, Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? While the chemistry between Twilight's main characters Bella and Edward has been praised, the box office hit failed to do what the book series did: use an original take on an old love story about destiny and soulmates to make even jaded hearts swoon.
Socialite Life is EXCLUSIVELY (their caps, not ours) reporting that Camilla Belle and Robert Pattinson have been spotted on the street together. Well, it's a little more than that. Apparantly the two beauties were seen dining togetherin Venice, California. No official word yet, but the pairing is intriguing if only for the potential drama.
Hugh Jackman is a sexy, sexy man. That's what People magazine believes at least. Last week the celebrity mag picked the Australia star for its coveted title previously held by the likes of Johnny Depp, George Clooney, and Brad Pitt. While Mr. Jackman definitely sets our hearts fluttering we can't help but think that there are sexier men who could easily fill Hugh's shoes. We're not alone. Entertainment Weekly feels Jon Hamm was denied type honors, and comments on the site tout the sexiness of everyone from Gale Harold (Desperate Housewives) to Jonathan Rhys Meyers (The Tudors). After hours of searching through hot celebrity photos, YourTango has come up with a list of 10 men who are sexier than Hugh Jackman.
In response to a 2005 discrimination complaint filed with the New Jersey Attorney General's office, online dating site eHarmony has finally agreed to launch a new service for same-sex couples, CNN.com reports. Compatible Partners, as the new service will be called, is due in by the end of March. GoErie.com reports that police charged a 19-year old man in Florida with domestic battery after he threw a sandwich at his girlfriend while she was driving, nearly causing her to loose control of the car.
While one man—British actor Robert Pattinson, pictured, who plays main vampire heartthrob Edward in the forthcoming Twilight movie—garnered most of today's media attention today, let's check in with the rest of the XY set. Esquire, Asylum, Gardasil, gossip and a possible cause of bad sex.
Counting down the days until the Twilight premiere? I am, too, and I'm enjoying all the media attention the books and movie are getting. But a recent Gawker post about the Stephenie Meyer series ticked me off. In "Vampire Chastity Belts: Anticipation for Sex That Never Comes is the Highlight of Twilight," blogger Alex Carnavale complains that the lack of sex in the book series is unrealistic, especially since the two main characters pine over each other for hundreds and hundreds and hundres of pages.

What surprised me, a feminist, about vampire young adult novels? It was hot how both young men in the books I read were so chivalrous to their ladies. I don't just mean the "life or death" protection. The boys opened car doors, pulled out chairs and even defended their ladies' honor in front of schoolyard bullies. Both of these vampires were teenagers in different centuries and practice centuries-old gender roles. Real teenage boys? Chivalry is dead, my friends, and it can't decide who should pay for dinner.
Breaking Dawn turns out to be as cold as a vampire’s skin. It lacks all the intensity and passion that made so many fans flock to this series the first time around. The only real emotion evident in Breaking Dawn is the deep love Meyer holds for all of her characters. She wants to ensure a happy ending for everyone of them, even if that means breaking all the rules to get them there.
So what's with all the vampire love fangfare (sorry, couldn't resist), anyway? Well, for entertainment bigwigs, what better characters to invest in than those that never age? All My Children producers were ahead of the curve on this one when they hired Susan Lucci. As for the audience, we get love stories that involve temptation, restraint, eternal love and blood-sucking danger. It's almost like watching Survivor, except better.
