Nikki Reed's Bro Chronicling Twilight Phenom as part of a Documentary

Possibly more behind-the-scenes Twilight coverage?

Nikki Reed talks to MTV about her brother's upcoming documentary about the Glorification of Celebrities, which will feature Twilight cast members:

“My brother goes to UCLA, and he’s making a documentary right now called ‘The Glorification of Celebrities’,” revealed Nikki Reed when we spoke with her a little while ago, explaining a small film that will feature herself, Kristen Stewart and other young stars commenting on the newfound power and pressure bestowed on them practically overnight. “’Twilight’ will play a role in it, but it is just about [exploring]: What is the definition of being a celebrity now?

Walk up to any supermarket checkout these days and you’ll be inundated with tabloid headlines screaming about what RPattz is up to, who Nikki is dating, or what outrageous quote KStew supposedly let slip. But as they’ve gone from relative unknowns to magazine-selling celebs, Reed’s brother Nathan has been chronicling the rise of the “Twilight” phenomenon with his camera.

“I think fans with be able to see this,” she said of the flick, which the Reeds expect to graduate beyond the little-seen world of student films. “I am trying to be as involved as I possibly can. I think ‘Twilight’ was a wonderful thing for him to use [in the film], because it escalated quite quickly. It went from being this little tiny book series that none of the actors really knew anything about to this explosion that happened somewhere around the summer [of 2008]; I started walking outside and people started yelling ‘Rosalie!’”

Ooh, I'd love to see this! Read the entire article at MTV.


  1. Look at this!


  2. I would love to see this, sounds very interesting. :)

  3. Sounds very interesting. Good for him

  4. hmm...i don't really agree with nikki's last statement of how twilight was a little known series before the movies came out. i think the books were HUGE and *opinion* are still ten times more amazing than the movie...maybe that's just me. i can see how none of the actors may have heard about it before, but to call it a little known series is a bit of an understatement...

    as for the documentary, i'll probably see it if it's available...although i'm pretty sure it'll be exactly what i imagine- how hard it is to be a celebrity. :/
    i think i'm in a pessimistic mood this morning...sorry.

  5. I don't know about that. If it is going to turn into how we should feel sorry for celebrities because they are famous----then I don't think it will be for me.

  6. Oh I bet Summit is just so thrilled. And the management of the main Twilight stars are going to be thrilled too! There is just no better way to get popular with the little people than for stars to complain about being recognized! Catherine H sort of cursed the whole Twilight phenom with the prospect of endless fame whoreing when she cast Nikki.
