Over the weekend, “Twilight” actor Kellan Lutz officially began the process of stepping into the vampire flick’s highly anticipated sequels. But when he spoke to us just before leaving for the set, we learned that the man called Emmett Cullen knows some things and doesn’t know others — and somehow both are equally revelatory.

Austin 360 has a new interview with Twilight director, Catherine Hardwicke:
We caught up with the University of Texas graduate to discuss her Texas roots, the “Twilight” phenomenon and the struggle women face in the movie business.
‘Thirteen’ and ‘Twilight’ deal with young girls coming of age and the perils and enticements therein. What it is about that time of life that intrigues you as a storyteller?
I didn’t start out thinking that I would make a teenage movie and get on a teenage career path. But after “Thirteen,” I realized I do love this age because every possibility is happening for you at that age — you suddenly have breasts, you can kiss a boy, you can smoke, you can drive a car, you can make your own choices.
What is the story behind your decision not to direct ‘New Moon’ (the follow-up to ‘Twilight’)?
If I felt like it was right, if the schedule worked right and the way the studio wanted to do the next one felt right for me, then I wanted to do it. And, if not, I didn’t want to. I’d have had like 10? weeks to prepare the movie. I didn’t think the script was there, and it wasn’t ready. I wanted the second one to be better than the first one. I wanted more time to at least think about it and dream about how to step it up to the next level.

E!Online has a good interview with Kristen Stewart where she talks about the Oscars, rumors, and more:
“We all really hope there is going to be a number four,” Stewart, 18, told me yesterday afternoon when we sat down to chat in a suite at L.A.’s Sofitel hotel. “I’m pretty confident that the fans aren’t going to all of a sudden lose interest. The only case that a fourth one wouldn’t be made is if all of a sudden people stopped caring, and I really don’t think that’s going to happen.”
And that’s not about to happen for Stewart, either. In fact, she’d like to set the record straight about critics who have come to attack her as some sort of Hollywood ingrate who doesn’t think very highly of Twilight or its more dedicated—some would say obsessed—fan base.
“I love the fans,” she insists. “I feel like I am one of the fans and any direct interaction I’ve ever had with them has been the most warm and pleasant and enthusiastic. If anything, it’s the biggest driving force that could propel you to do something.”
That doesn’t mean all the new attention—OK, hysteria—can’t be overwhelming at times. But when she was recently quoted in a magazine as describing some of these experiences as “psychotic,” some felt she was taking a dig at the fans. “It’s not normal for me to be in a situation that Twilight puts you in,” she explains. “It’s not personally normal for me to see 5,000 screaming girls. But I’m not criticizing them for being ‘crazy’ about me. I’m sort of going, “Wow, this is just crazy!’ ”
When Stewart wasn’t at the Oscars last month, critics pounced again. Did she dislike Twilight so much that she wasn’t willing to support it like Pattinson, who was a first-time presenter? Was she scared that the supposed secret romance between her and her costar would be too hard to hide if they appeared together on the same stage on Hollywood’s biggest night?
Um, no! She had a very good reason for not being there—she wasn’t asked. “If I was invited to the Oscars, I would be there in a nanosecond,” she says. “If I got an invitation to the Oscars, I wouldn’t turn it down!”

Kristen Stewart has brought an update for “The Twilight Saga’s New Moon”. In an interview with MoviesOnline, the “Twilight” beauty shared that the starting date for the shooting of the vampire drama sequel is close. In fact, she pointed on March 23 as the day the filming will be kicked off.
“Very soon,” Stewart responded on the shooting schedule’s question. She then added more details, saying, “In a couple weeks. March 23rd I think is the first official day of shooting.” Asked about what part she looks forward to shoot, the 18-year-old gushed, “It’s a completely different story. It’s like it entirely undermines the first. Edward is gone and, for me, that was the whole story.”

The Insider did an interview with Kristen Stewart about the upcoming film New Moon and her new movie The Cake Eaters.
Kristen Stewart talks with Collider about her recent interview with Nylon.
When asked what she thought about the bad press she’s been getting in the wake of her Nylon interview, Stewart is adamant that her words are being taken out of context—professing, believably might I add—to having nothing but the utmost respect and care for the Twilight story and situation as a whole. “I love the Twilight fans. I have literally never said anything remotely negative about them,” she told us.
So all the hullaballoo? She attributed that to learning the ropes about what is going to read in print and what isn’t. “You have to stay away from certain key words that can be twisted in a negative connotation. Like the word ‘psychotic’ apparently is really bad,” she said, provoking laughter around the table.
