Red carpet: Kristen Stewart -- now you see her, now you don't
"Twilight" buds Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner adopted similar strategies, though not at the same time, when heading down the tail end of the Oscars red carpet Sunday. Both put the pedal to the metal and got where they needed to go -- which was inside to prep for their award presentation.
As we said on Twitter, "OK, if they coulda had Taylor Lautner sprint past us, I bet he woulda. Crowd hinders sprinting, however."
But as fast as Taylor went? Kristen woulda been him in a dead heat -- just check out the video. Hey, she's probably trained a lot running from folks asking her the same question over and over and over again.
At least she flashed a cute smile and wave along the way.
