Well those are Stephanie's words! I agree with her when it comes to anything Muse or My Chemical Romance as those are 2 of my fav bands! The song Newborn by Muse is absolutely perfect for Eclipse! I thought that on my own and then I'm pretty sure I read after the fact that Stephanie wrote an entire chapter in Eclipse based off of that song, so perfect!

With five films scheduled to come out in the next year, it’s safe to say that Ashley Greene is riding the momentum from the absurd Twilight wave. The young vampire with the psychic abilities—she also has the power to make girls literally break down in tears in public—has already survived a sex-tape scandal, so that’s out of her teen idol system. But how far into her own future can she see? From where we’re standing, the near-future, at least, looks promising.
ASHLEY GREENE: “I grew up in a house that would be perfect to set a horror movie in. It was out in the country, right on the water. I’m glad I never got to see scary movies when I was young. Otherwise I would have imagined things coming out of the lake.
A bit of Brando, a twinge of Dean, the Twilight star possesses that slightly strange alien quality that turns brooding good looks into the iconic.
On life before Twilight: “We spent the better part of a year just getting drunk every night… “I don’t know if that counts as ‘struggling.’”
"A line of cocaine?!" Taylor Lautnerm, 17 replies. "No I've never done any drug."
Rolling Stone descibes the Twilight books as "the love triangle between a girl from a broken home, an overprotective vampire who has intimacy issues and an amorous werewold stuck in the friend zone."
They decribe Lautner with a "squeaky-clean Disney -worthy reputation that we are attempting to ruin."
Their conversation continues...
You havent even smoked pot once?
How about cigarettes?
Not even tried them without inhaling?
Have you ever been arressted?
How about traffic tickets? What's the worst moving violation you've ever gotten?
I've never gotten one. Wow this is interesting.
Um, how have urinating on public properly? Have you ever done that?
On public property? Like an alley or a park bench.
I guess like forests in the woods if it's an emergency.
That doesnt count. What about drinking? Have you ever been drunk?
Come on, I dont believe that.
I could just be answering no to everything
Ok, so you've probably been drunk before and maybe watched some porn.
Ok, ok. Yeah it is up to you for interpretation.
So if you've been drunk what's the harm in saying it? There's nothing wrong with it.
Can I ask you something?
What did you do with Zac Efron when you interviewed him.
Lautner isnt really a star. Right now, he is a phenomenon. Out side the home where he lives with his parents and sister, there can be as many as 12 paparazzi vehicles lurking. There have been three books written about him countless fan websites and every week the tabloids offer fresh speculation on his rumored relationship with Taylor Swift.
"Your saw New Moon?!" Lautner exclaims, grinning widely. "I haven't even seen the movie yet. How was the CGI? How do the wolves look? How about the back flip at the end where I turn into a wolf?" - "So I just jump and poof into a woof?" he continues his barrage of questions as he executes a perfect double flip.
There are two kinds of child stars: the Lindsay Lohans and the Zac Efrons. Lohans are interesting but unstable and depressed, while the Efrons are boring but grounded and happy. Lautner is most definitely an Efron.
He has an inner stillness and solidity that are surprising for his age, and he tens to communicate more with his thick, low slung eyebrows than with words. At times, his laconic nature is unsettling: Questions that require deeper thought are responded to with a smiling "I got you" (which he says 18 times) or a "there you go" (9 times). Sometimes even an "Oh my" (3 times) All of which translate as "I understand but I'm either not going to reply or dont how how to reply. With such polite and seemingly obvious responses, it sometimes appears is if Lautner has taken a press-training course in evading answers. That is until one speaks to his father- and notices that they have the same "aw shucks" speaking voice and answers queries with the same vagueness.

At Bella's birthday party, when Edward pushes Jasper away after attacking Bella, Emmett turns his head to follow Jasper flying through the air. But in the next shot, he is looking in front of him as though he didn't see anything.
When Bella is in the parking lot at school in the beginning, Edward walks toward her. Bella's hair is neatly pulled off to the side. When he leans in for the kiss it is suddenly stuck to her forehead, and when Edward tells her Jacob wants her, it's suddenly back to normal.
Just as Jacob enters Bella's room through the window, a stunt prop - white band on his right wrist - is briefly visible.
In the opening sequence of the moon changing phase to reveal the "New Moon" title, the moon is actually upside down. Easiest way to tell is because the Tycho crater appears on the top-right as opposed to bottom-left as it is visible from earth.
When Jacob first shows off his tattoo, it is up at the top of his shoulder. Then when he is in the forest at the end with Bella and Edward, his tattoo is about 2 inches further down his arm.
When Sam comes into the house and kisses his fiance, you can see the ripples in the edges of the plastic film used to put the tattoo on his arm.
