Hitfix.com has an interview with Taylor Lautner
Becoming a movie heartthrob is never easy and Taylor Lautner is handling it with as much patience and class that you could expect for a 17-year-old whose become instantly recognizable to almost every teenage girl in his peer group. So, when this writer and a number of journalists visited the set of “The Twilight Saga: New Moon” in May, Lautner was kind enough to journey to the Vancouver studio during his offtime to chat about the highly-anticipated sequel. It’s well documented how much work Lautner did to gain the muscle mass to play Jacob, a character that is described as physically imposing in Stephenie Meyer’s books.

hollywood.com interviewed robert pattinson while on a visit at the new moon set!
Here’s one thing they learned about him:
Robert is alarmingly, nerve-wrackingly handsome in person. He also seems to have some sort of gravitational pull, as every woman on set, not limited to, but certainly including me, inched closer to him as covertly as possible when he was in the vicinity. He didn’t seem to care or notice.

Jamie Campbell Bower’s girlfriend has been very supportive, but she’s got a right to his support, as we can see in this picture as Jamie models for his girlfriends clothes.
“I’ve always made tapestries with my mother,” says designer Zoe Graham, who applies rainbow-bright weaves to one-off vintage leather and denim jackets. “She was a real Sixties child, so my jackets are inspired by the natural imagery of psychedelic poster art.” As seen on singer Marina and the Diamonds, goth boys The Horrors and Zoe’s boyfriend, actor Jamie Campbell-Bower.

Rachelle Lefevre talks to London Free press about the comparison between her character in Twilight, and her character in New Moon.
“In the first movie, because I didn’t have as much screen time, I wanted to be very clear. I wanted to convey energy and be very present, but also very playful. And that’s because (Victoria) enjoyed stalking Bella with James.
“But when James is killed, it becomes about exacting revenge, which comes from a totally different place. It’s not just a game any more.”

E! have an article talking to Billy Burke about certain rumours which have been spread about Rob and Kristen. Here’s some of what Billy said:
So Kristen was reportedly pregnant, which we cleared up and showed to be totally false.
“Rob is probably pregnant with my child. It’s funny no one picked up on me and Rob’s affair.”
Do you wish you were more involved in rumors like your younger costars?
“I don’t feel left out at all. They can keep me out of those rumors as much as they want.”
How do you think Rob’s handling all this attention? He seems stressed out on the set of his new movie, Remember Me… Think R.Pattz would ever get totally fed up with it and quit acting altogether?
“You mean pulling a Joaquin Phoenix? I doubt he would go that route. He’s got a lot of talent. He’s got his art, as opposed to being bogged down by all this bulls–t. I think he’s handling it well. I feel a little bit for [Rob and Kristen]. I think [the attention] was unexpected by both of them.”

Christopher Heyerdahl, who plays Marcus in the upcoming film, New Moon, speaks to Sci-Fi wire about New Moon.
“Well, it’s a little independent film I’m helping out with,” the good-natured Heyerdahl said with a chuckle and tongue firmly in cheek. “This guy, poor old Marcus, is a 3,000-odd-years-old vampire who has spent at least the last 2,000 of it with a broken heart. Really, one of the main reasons to play that character and have anything to do with that series is my niece, who is absolutely obsessed with this series of books. To see how it has had such an effect on the teenage female community throughout the world is amazing.”
