Gorgeous Photos: Alex Meraz's Mythic, Envy-inducing Marriage

[Photos removed b/c they were not meant to be shared]

Celebuzz has an article and story about some of the pics that photographer Iscah Trujillo took of Alex and his 8-months pregnant wife Kim:
"Alex is so happy as a father," says Iscah. "He loves it. And you can really see the love come through."
Read the rest - and drool over several more pics of my new favorite Twilight DILF (you know you were thinking it too!) - here.

"At Least He's Man-scaped": Oh, oh...I really wish I hadn't seen this...

Follow the rabbit trail if you dare: Little Ashes Spoiler- R Rated

Thanks for the tip, Camille! I think. Sniff.

P.S. I'm starting to get some comments here...please don't get me wrong; Nobody's hatin' on anything and we all think RPattz is *awesome* for taking on this daring, iconic role. I was only initially bummed because when I saw 'Rated R' I thought I was gonna see something *Smexy & Hot* when I clicked on the link.

Sorry, I don't enjoy seeing anybody's pubes, no matter who they are attached to or how artistically presented. Can't help it! :-)

P.P.S. Gallifrey's comment has inspired me to change the title of this post. :-)

P.P.P.S. JanetOC helped me realize that it's the *TUCK*, not the BUCK (nekkid) part that may be giving people pause. :-)

Nekkid RPattz = Good
The Tuck = Confusing
(What the Buck, is up with the Tuck?)

LettersToRob ponders the Tuck. Read. Laugh. It's hilarious.


Ashley Greene Hanging out H. Wood Lounge in West Hollywood Last Night

Here is a Pap video of the night, if you can stand watching. Ashley has really sweet friends!

Video thanks to Stacy!

Nikki Reed in Vancouver...Having a Slumber Party?

Lainey Gossip provides the goods & dirt again:
Exclusive shots of Nikki Reed on Sunday afternoon. Shortly after these photos were taken she took off for Rob’s place. Later that night (Sunday) they met up with friends, then ended up at one of the label parties after the Junos with Kristen Stewart and her boyfriend Michael Angarano. Am told Rob and Nikki spent much of the time talking to each other, heads bent close together.

My sources tell me exclusively that at the end of the evening, or early morning depending how you see it, the four of them left the event, hugged before parting ways (a weird 4-way group hug), Kristen and Michael hopped in a cab, and Nikki and Rob walked further up the block… arms wrapped around each other on their way home.

She stayed with him overnight, was supposed to be back in LA on Monday….

But never showed.
Inneresting. Very inneresting. I like slumber parties. Don't believe everything that you read. :-) See the pics here.

Cute (OLD) Pics of Ashley Greene Hanging Out With Chace Crawford

My Undercover TwiCrack Dealer sent me these random pics taken on an undetermined date of Ashley Greene with some guy who kinda looks like Chace Crawford. Cute!

Rachelle Lefevre Has a Super-Cute Doggie

Gossip Girls has some pics of Rachelle Lefevre out and about in LA a couple of days ago with her pooch. Check out the rest of the photos - including semi-invasive ones of Rachelle in her bathrobe & eating with friends - here.

New Moon La Push Scene Photos: Nice Big Flowing Wigs!

Are you digging Bella's big hair and Jacob's halfsie-up do?Lainey does it again:
As you can see, they’re both wearing wigs. Movie making magic! And I always thought her hair was that thick and lustrous! There’d been a lot of questions about whether or not Taylor could grow into the role. From the back, Taylor does look kinda man now. Kristen’s make up is great. Am all over the stain they use on her lips. Gorgeous.

Right now, filming has primarily involved these two with some wolf shots thrown in here and there. However, while Taylor/Jacob will feature prominently, right now there are several “Edward” dream sequences planned, just so the crazy fan moms don’t lose their sh-t over not enough Robert Pattinson. Whether or not those parts make it to the final cut is another story.
See all pics here.

Alex Meraz is a Married Daddy & Other Shizz You Didn't Know About Him

Celebuzz has a new article on 7 Things You Need to Know About 'New Moon' Wolf Alex Meraz. Here is an excerpt:

THE DUDE WORKS HARD: Nabbing the key role in Twilight was no fluke for the young actor. "If there's anyone I have known in my life that deserves this, it's Alex," says Trijillo. "He's worked his ass off in the time I have known him. He never lets up."

Beyond staying in top physical shape, the actor-student works hard on honing his craft, including his New Moon audition. "Alex drove from Phoenix to my ranch in New Mexico on his birthday weekend so I could help him with his audition," says Trujillo. "It's about 8 hours each way. But he knew he needed to get this done."

"He's humble," says Trujillo. "And he always showed that he was willing to listen and learn."

SORRY LADIES, HE'S MARRIED: Alex is madly in love with his Vietnamese-American wife Kim. They have a child named Somak (Trujillo is the god-parent). Kim was the one who was a true Twilight fan.

"His wife is the one who has read all of those books. And she's the one who said look, you have to got to get into this. This is perfect for you. You're the one."

TwiHards Staking-Out Filming Locations: I Want In On This Set-Stalking Ring :-)

Vancouver Sun reports that New Moon fans are rushing from location to location and using high-tech James Bond techniques to set-stalk:

Twilight fans have been running off their feet to catch a glimpse of New Moon stars Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner.

New Moon, the second book in the Twilight series, is being shot at locations across British Columbia and the Twilight fansites and Twitter networkers are actively stalking the production and broadcasting locations as they become known.

Oh, wait. Are they talking about fansites like mine? Oops. Anyhoo, in spite of all the TwiHards' efforts, set-stalker Michele Danielov reports that there's not much to see:

When a friend called to say that the New Moon shoot had set up at Minnekhada Regional Park in Coquitlam, she didn't hesitate.

"I went down there during the day, but it was all blocked off," said the 37-year-old accountant. Although no active filming is taking place there now, Danielov plans to return to the park.

"The trucks are still there so they will for sure be coming back," she said.

On Friday Danielov spotted another film crew working in Pitt Meadows, by chance as she was driving by and returned that night with a friend

"On both sites, they brilliantly located them so you can't see anything," she said. "It's surrounded by trees."

A Game of Probability & Chance

Also, here are this morning's Dazzle Award results. As you can see, I'm majorly (but quite contentedly) losing to many of my personal Twilight fansite favorites in both of the categories for which I've been nominated; I can't believe that this many have actually even voted for me so far. Haha. Thanks for taking the time to do that, people! :-)

I can't even believe I'm a contender in the Blog category; I only voted for myself to help ensure I don't come in last. hehe. The constantly-updated New Moon Movie is whupping arse.
I love Lauren's Bite too! :-) And bloggy friends Ana Cristina & Amber.

Rene Haynes Bombarded with Calls & Emails from Opinionated, Passionate TwiHards - and a TwiCrack Shout-out :-)

Rene Haynes shares more details about her New Moon casting experience with Celebuzz, including just how vocal Twilight fans are:

When Haynes was hired to cast the Native American roles in New Moon, she immediately became the center of attention of fans eager to speak their minds.

"It was crazy, especially in the early days," Haynes tells Celebuzz.

"In the first four weeks after the announcement that my office was casting these roles we stopped counting emails after 20,000," she tells Celebuzz. "I am not exaggerating."

P.S. Look who's listed as one of Celebuzz's fave fan websites passing on the good word at the end of the article. Tee hee. (Thanks, Ashton!)

Vancouver Sun Talks About Cuckoo Fansites Like Mine Clamoring for New Moon Cast Photos

The Vancouver Sun reports:

Real star sightings are hard to come by as Pattinson is not showing up at location shoots to date. Twilight fan sites are speculating that his scenes are not yet filming.

Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner have been sighted on location near Long Beach, Pitt Meadows and Port Coquitlam.

The Wolf Pack, the young first Nations actors cast to play the La Push first nations gang of Stephanie Meyer's novel New Moon have been extensively photographed on the streets of Vancouver over the past few days. Photographs of Chaske Spencer, Alex Meraz and Kiowa Gordon are on laineygossip.com and links to those pictures are proliferating on Twilight fan sites.

Bring it on! I loves me some TwiCrack. :-)

P.S. Why is this news?

KStew Joined by Boyfriend Oregano Michael Angarano in Vancouver

Lainey Gossip reports:
Meanwhile, Kristen Stewart was joined by her BF Michael Angarano and her BFF Nikki Reed on Sunday. Here they are coming from late lunch. Interestingly enough, a short while after their meal, Nikki was spotted heading over to Rob’s. She stayed at his place a few hours, then they went out and hooked up with some friends…
Read the rest of Lainey's article (where she hates on Twilighters, again) and see all the pics and here, including ones of Taylor arriving back in Vancouver on Sunday night after the KCA's.

Tap-Dancing Vampires: Entertainmentwise Interviews Ashley Greene

Entertainmentwise.com has an exclusive interview with Ashley Greene where she talks about the cast's tight bond and also reveals that they had to take *tap dancing* lessons prior to Twilight:

Ashley also reveals that there is a strong bond between the actors off screen as well as on, with the cast regularly participating in group hang-outs to take the edge off work.

She adds, "We work long, long days and then get off and go out to eat, or go shopping together, or play music. We all kind of became this close knit family."

And as for other curricular activities, Ashley is eager to get back into dancing to improve her strength and stamina in readiness for those action scenes.

She says, "They had us do this tap class before [Twilight] so that kind of jolted my memory.

"Before the second film I'm going to take some dance classes to get back into that. Alice is a thin girl so there was a lot of cardio."

Update: You can also read funny commentary about it at 4tnz!

VOLTURI CASTING: Jamie Campbell-Bower is CAIUS!

(Flock of Seagulls, anyone?)

BBC NEWS REPORTS:

British actor Jamie Campbell-Bower has revealed he will play Volturi leader Caius in The Twilight Saga: New Moon.

The 20-year-old, who has appeared in RockNRolla and Sweeney Todd, told the BBC news website that taking part in the vampire series was "very exciting".

"You're the first people I've told" he said. "Shooting has already started, and I'm going over in June."

The film, due for release in November, is the second adaptation from author Stephenie Meyer's Twilight series.

The role of Caius is key to the plot of New Moon. He forms part of the triumvirate leading the Italian based coven of vampires called the Volturi.


(Jamie in Sweeney Todd)

Jamie also reveals the following:

Campbell-Bower confessed he was not previously aware of the character: "I hadn't read the books before. But it's a great thing to be a part of, and it did very well last year."

*************

Campbell-Bower teased: "I do know who else will be in it - but I can't tell you, unfortunately.

"But go online and have a look at the rumours," he said, then added: "They're all false. You're putting me in a terrible situation."

Holy Shizz! Read the rest here.

Vampire Sighting?? Details of a Rob & Nikki Fan Encounter

Veronique has blogged about meeting Robert Pattinson, Nikki Reed & Sam Bradley recently:
Monday, March 30th, 2009

Ever heard of Robert Pattinson, Nikki Reed, Sam Bradley???

Walking down a street, looking for a cool place to hang and have a beer… As I’m walkin, I pass in front of a terrasse of a nice ”trendy” restaurant. My eyes caught the face of someone reminding me of a singer I have just discovered. It’s HIM!!! next to the ”lookalike” is the boy with the hat. Next to the one with the hat, in front of the ”lookalike” is the girl without the wig. OK, this is too good to be true. I look at Penny and stop walking. Take another look, my own little voice is screaming inside. It cant be true… My head turns back one more time. The boy with the hat is looking at me; he knows I recognized him. He’s trying to hide in his jacket… I get the message that he’d rather like go unnoticed… So I decide to keep going on my mission for a place to hang out. In the meantime, a few calls to my friends who are gonna kill me if I dont go back… What should I do, what should I say?

After 15 minutes of walking around, Penny’s got a txt message sayin we should go to a certain bar… We turn around and walk toward some pub. I HAVE to pass by again. As I’m walking passed the restaurant, there’s 3 girls (I beleive a mom and daughters, but honnestly I was so in shock I dont remember…) were talking to them and took a picture. Ok, so, if I dont do this now, I wont get another chance. I’m getting to the table and apologize (so many times, I probably looked like a total idiot) for disturbing their night, chatted for a couple of minutes, about Sam’s music and their time in Vancouver. Penny got to take a picture of Rob, Nikki and I(after several try, battery was dying, flash was off…). I have never felt so stupid (I aint natural blond!!! lol) in my life but hey, who cares? I most probably wont run into them again and if I do, then I wont be in shock state of shock!
