Bret Easton Ellis, the author of novels like Less Than Zero, Rules of Attraction and American Psycho, mentioned Rob and Twilight in an interview with NY Mag:
Imperial Bedrooms was, in a way, a side project. But it’s also part of the processing of his past, and of his return to L.A., where his friends are “directors, actors, producers, people I’m involved with in various projects,” he says. Ellis has always been seduced by money and fame, and that hasn’t changed. “Maybe it’s a weird strain of anti-intellectualism,” he says, but if given a choice he’d rather “hang out with Rob Pattinson than Richard Ford.”
And he also mentions that Gus Van Sant was trying to direct Breaking Dawn:
Van Sant, meanwhile, was trying to get the gig to direct Twilight. “You can make a lot of money doing that,” Ellis whispers, so lightly that it doesn’t get picked up by my tape recorder.
Here are thirties style pics of Robert Pattinson on the set of Water for Elephants today.

“[I have very specific] ideas about how i want to do my work and how I want to be perceived…i don’t listen to anyone else…can’t stand if someone is trying to tell me to do something…it’s probably a mistake sometimes…i like being meticulous and it’s quite difficult as an actor to have that much control…”

Think Apple and Android fans are hardcore? Those guys are mere lightweights compared to Twilightfanatics, who’ll soon have a phone to call their own too. Coming with eight tie-in wallpapers and that embellished back cover, this version of the GD510 — a thoroughly unexciting featurephone with ambitions above its 3-inch, resistive touchscreen station — has just become available over in France, for free on contracts with Orange or in exchange for €199 ($238). As a bonus temptation, LG is also throwing in a free copy of Twilight: New Moon, though we doubt anyone buying this phone will have seen that movie less than a dozen times.
Both consistently dominate the box office, Twitter and, most recently, the MTV Movie Awards.
But what happens when the two come face to face? Well, we’ll let Tom Felton, who plays Draco Malfoy in Potter and who won Best Villain answer that for you.
“It’s no question really,” Tom said cutely and smugly when we asked who would win in a fight between Edward and Draco. “A wand is going to beat…Oh, wait. I dare not answer that. But yeah, let’s go with a wand over fangs for now.”
We’d have to agree; score one for Potter. So how about their cult Twitter followers? We were surprised when we stumbled upon the insane fan base for Mr. Felton on Sunday at the MTV bash.
“That might be equal,” Felton laughed. However, unlike Kristen Stewart’s feelings toward the new wave of social media, Tom’s all for it.
“It’s totally cool. Twitter sprung up out of nowhere,” Tom said, adding how he thought it was a cool way to interact with the fans. “It’s great. There are so many fantastic supporters out there. I can’t thank them enough. They’re awesome.”
Then again, Felton and his GF are hardly as hounded as Rob and Kristen, so can’t say we blame the babe for hating the new form technology.
Wands down for a second, though, Tom had nothing but great things to say about good mate R.Pattz, whom he worked with in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.
“I hadn’t seen him for a long time actually, and then I saw him for his Remember Me premiere, and I was amazed that he remembered me,” Felton joked. That was the first time Tom had seen Rob since he became a worldwide phenom.
“Rob’s very sweet and just a very cool guy. He’s actually very unaffected by all this. He’s kind of the beacon of hope for life after Harry Potter. I’m very proud of him.”
Awww, see Potterheads and Twi-hards can coexist in peace! But here’s the real question: Which exclusive, and very hyped, clip from the MTV Movie Awards got you more pumped, Eclipse or Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1?
