From Huffington Post:
Weinstein gleefully confessed that he’d sold a sit-down with “Twilight” star Kristen Stewart for charity funds. Apparently the “Prince of an Arabian country” was offering to pay top dollar for a fifteen-minute chat with the chronically awkward actress.
Weinstein called Stewart and filled her in on the situation. “She said ‘How much?’ My kind of girl,” he quipped. The mogul and the prince were eventually able to agree to a $500,000 donation. In cash. The prince, Stewart and a number of bodyguards enjoyed a lovely fifteen minutes together during the concert. (The concert went on to raise $30 million.)
I bet our girl made sure she drove the price as high as possible to raise more money

As an excluse preview of the upcoming DIOR HOMME perfume campaign featuring Robert Pattinson shot by Nan Goldin, I created a teaser video for TUSH Online. It is composed of small slides housed in a custom built camera, live-filmed in a New York street. In post-production, I added hand-drawn titles that served as a divider between the images.

I CAN’T BREATHE I JUST MET ROBERT PATTINSON I’M NOT EVEN LYING
It was in LA at a hospital
He had like people with him I guess like assistants and staff but otherwise it was just him
He didn’t have any cameras with him which made me love him even more because he didn’t do this for the media
He was visiting the patients there He is so sweet
Meeting Robert was literally a dream come true! I was so ridiculously shy but he was kind of shy too! His smile made my heart swell
We shared a few words but we were both shy. I took up most of the time trying not to fan girl
I honestly cried when he left. I didn’t want him to see my cry so I held in it but I mean as soon as he left the tears streamed down my face
I am stuck in this hospital room but the woman told me he met another fan and her heart rate went up. He was scared for her.
e don’t know if he went to any other floors but he visited two people in isolation (including me) and went to a patient lounge
But what warmed my heart a lot was the fact that Rob came into the room without looking at me as something contagious. He hugged me!
How sweet of him!!5 Comments
I get further away every day. I am so over it [Twilight]. For me, it’s not a happy place to be.
Some thought she was being ungrateful to the fans so Stephenie issued an apology via her blog to clarify her statement
I’m just back from my short publicity tour for Austenland, and very glad to be home with my boys. I hope you all are having a wonderful summer with your families, and that you have a few more weeks to enjoy (unlike Arizona, where we were back to school last week).
With all the travelling, I only just heard about the current controversy, and I am both surprised and dismayed. I am horrified that my words could be construed in any way to mean that I am “over” the lovely people who embraced Twilight, made it such a huge hit, and changed my life. The time I’ve spent with my fans has been one of the most precious gifts of this whole experience and I will certainly never forget them or think of them with anything but immense gratitude. I was lucky enough to see a few of them Tuesday night at the Apple “Meet the Filmmakers” event, and they were so lovely! I’m always surprised and touched that people still care about my stories.
Any of you who have ever watched me answer a question live, especially to an indulgent inquirer like a fansite, know that I do tend to go on. Though I try to be as concise as possible to make editing easier for whichever news outlet I’m working with, I’m (still) not very good at it. If you look at the Variety article, you’ll notice that I’m speaking in very short statements. Of course, I didn’t actually. I spoke in run-on paragraphs and made the poor, sweet man who interviewed me comb through painstakingly trying to find a few completed sentences that he could use to convey the idea of what I was saying. Unfortunately, in shortening the interview to a usable size, some of the meaning of what I was trying to say was lost, and I believe the statements I made ended up sounding much more harsh than I meant them.
Even those of you who love Twilight the most (in fact, especially those who love it the most) have probably noticed that there’s been just a teensy little bit of backlash following the success of the books and films. I try my hardest to be thick-skinned, but I’m not much better at that than I am at brevity. So when I speak of Twilight becoming a negative place for me, it is entirely that near-omnipresent Twilight antipathy that I am speaking of. And I’m not complaining or saying it’s unfair—I totally understand and even empathize with its existence. I’m just saying that Twilight isn’t the wholly positive place for me that it once was.
Also, in regards to being “over it,” I will admit, it’s getting harder to answer the same questions about Twilight that I’ve been answering for the past decade (especially when I’m so excited to talk about Austenland). I can only imagine you are just as over reading those same answers. And the little bit about posting which characters died? That was referring to a solemn oath I made years and years ago to some cool fans. I swore I would not take to my grave the ideas I had for future stories, even if all I could to was list the outcomes in bullet points.
So please, never think I don’t appreciate the people who read, watch, and love Twilight. I am grateful for your existence every single day. Thanks for the most amazing decade!
