Kristen Stewart turns 22 with RPattz, Charlize Theron video card

Kristen Stewart turns 22
Kristen Stewart cleaned up on her 22nd birthday, from quality time with Robert Pattinson to some via-satellite love from Charlize Theron and Chris Hemsworth. 

As Stewart, she of "The Twilight Saga" fame, turned one year past that of legal drinking age in the U.S., it was fitting she enjoyed a low key celebration in a Hollywood bar, her on-screen vampire beau beside her.

At nightspot Harvard & Stone, the couple enjoyed cocktails in intimate upper-level seating, according to E! News.

"They were having lots of drinks on the top floor of the bar and seemed to be having fun," a source claimed. 

Joined by friends, Pattinson and Stewart took interest in some dancing ladies flanking the space as "the bar had a burlesque show which took place every 30 minutes and they were watching that." 

We, on the other hand, can't stop watching Stewart's evil queen. Charlize Theron, the serial-killing monarch in "Snow White and the Huntsman," wished KStew a happy birthday via YouTube. Check out Charlize's video card and a second clip from "Huntsman" Chris Hemsworth below.

'Breaking Dawn Part 2' trailer: Kristen Stewart as a vampire

The teaser trailer for "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2" is here — and Kristen Stewart's Bella Swan is a newborn vampire, y'all.

As "Breaking Dawn Part 1" ended with a fan-favorite human-to-immortal transformation scene for Bella, the first look at the final film in the franchise shows us how Stewart is getting down with her undead self: dashing, climbing, chowing on forest creatures and other badness.

"After 18 years of being utterly ordinary, I finally found that I could shine," Stewart says in the brief clip (below), which also features Robert Pattinson as Edward Cullen and Taylor Lautner as Jacob Black.

The conclusion to the franchise will hit theaters in November, drawing to a close the tale of Edward and Bella and their struggles for eternal bliss. But Stewart's fellow actors are quite amused with her struggles as a new vamp.

"When she finally wore them and was complaining about them every second of the day," Pattinson said of the colored contact lenses the bloodsuckers are required to wear, "it was kind of satisfying."

What do you think of the "Breaking Dawn Part 2" teaser? Tell us in comments.

'Snow White and the Huntsman' trailer: five awesome moments

Kristen Stewart in "Snow White and the Huntsman"

"Snow White and the Huntsman" dropped a few more apples Monday morning, after its leads Kristen Stewart and Charlize Theron appeared at WonderCon over the weekend.

In a blissfully extended five-minute trailer, a lot of light (and dark) is shed on the motives of evil queen Charlize and the righteous Snow Stewart, plus some seriously burly moments from "Thor" himself, Chris Hemsworth.

The Ministry's five awesome moments from the "Snow White and the Huntsman" extended trailer (watch it at Xfinity TV) are:

London calling: We heard rumblings that Stewart's character speaks in a proper English accent, now confirmed. She's doing herself pretty proud (and let's face it, all that, um, time with "Twilight" costar Robert Pattinson must have helped in developing her dialect).

The dwarves: While the competing Snow White film "Mirror, Mirror" features a zany pack of dwarves sprinting and doing their Disney-esque shtick, the band of men we meet in this "Hunstman" are serious in an exciting way. Part of a kingdom disenfranchised by the queen, they recognize Stewart as salvation and help Hemsworth lead her into battle. And speaking of ...

Chris Hemsworth, you guys: He's just all kinds of yes in this, and before you get on us for the beefcake thing -- there's nary a shirt off or chainmail vest on bare skin. He's all man power, and some of the action sequences look up to snuff with hard-core Hemsworth projects such as "The Avengers." 

Beauty is only as deep as Charlize will cut you: Seriously, Theron isn't anyone to mess with. Earlier glimpses of her matriarch Ravenna showed a gold-clad, aging pageant queen with a penchant for murder. She's so much more: delusional, psychotic, maniacal, impulsive and a total rage case. Plus a chilling laugh.

This quote: "I will give this wretched world the queen it deserves," Theron slithers in an updated theatrical trailer (below). Yes, Charlize. Yes, you will.

Below is the newest, 2 3/4-minute theatrical trailer:

Charlize Theron talks motherhood, Kristen Stewart with Seacrest

Charlize Theron

Charlize Theron has long been a fashion plate, but her favorite look these days? Swaddling clothes for the new baby.

The Oscar winner called in to Ryan Seacrest's radio show Friday morning to discuss the whirlwind week she's had thanks to the announcement of her adopting a 4-month-old little guy named Jackson.

"It’s been amazing, the amount of emails and congratulations," she said. "Everyone’s just been so lovely, so it’s been really nice." 

This is the first child for single Theron, who has several films slated for premiere in the coming months. In addition to acting, she's got a charitable foundation helping African youth avoid HIV/AIDS and is the face of Dior fragrance J'Adore.

"I didn’t think I would be a fan of the swaddling, but the swaddling is pretty amazing. It looks a bit like a straitjacket ... but for some reason they just love it," she said of the practice in which an infant is  wrapped tightly in a blanket. Some say the practice helps babies fall asleep -- and stay that way.

While she's a nurturing mom at home, come May we'll see Charlize as the Evil Queen in "Snow White and the Huntsman." For her thoughts on working with "Twilight Saga" star Kristen Stewart, check out her full Seacrest interview, below.

Jennifer Lawrence not envious of Kristen Stewart's fame

Jennifer Lawrence isn't feeling Kriste Stewart-level fame

Kristen Stewart became an undeniable franchise queen thanks to the global adoration of "The Twilight Saga," and now young Jennifer Lawrence prepares to handle the same level of attention with "The Hunger Games."

But she's not necessarily digging the fame thing.

"I look at Kristen Stewart now and I think, 'I'd never want to be that famous,' " Lawrence told Glamour UK. "I can't imagine how I'd feel if all of a sudden my life was pandemonium."

She may have to use her imagination, however, because the film adaptation of Suzanne Collins' blockbuster novel will release stateside March 23. There's already major groundswell for the flick, which costars Liam Hemsworth and Josh Hutcherson. 

The 21-year-old Kentucky native must be giving some thought to an onset of interest if the film is as big a hit as it promises to be?

"In some ways, it's a hard life, but it's a great professional life," she said. "I'm doing what I love, and then I get months and months of rest. I have a lot of money for a 21-year-old. I can't stand it when actors complain."

May the publicity odds ever be in your favor, Jennifer.

Robert Pattinson: $12K in guitars (but no KStew) for Christmas

Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart dropped some cash on Xmas gifts

Though Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart spent the Christmas holidays with their respective families this year -- on different continents -- the couple exchanged some impressive gifts to serve as romantic reminders.

For Pattinson, Stewart nabbed two vintage guitars (a 1959 Fender Jazzmaster and a 1947 K&F Lap Steel, for you music buffs). The instruments cost something to the tune of $12,000.

"She said, 'He's gonna ... when he sees them!' " the owner of Norman's Rare Guitars in Tarzana told Us Weekly, which first reported the "Twilight Saga" heroine's purchase.

Pattinson was spotted on Christmas Eve in London palling around with his close friend Tom Sturridge's ex-girlfriend. Stewart was said to be in stateside in Los Angeles with her family.

Stewart got some creature comforts of her own, however, courtesy of her "Water for Elephants" hunk: around $500 worth of vintage furniture -- lamps and a wooden bench -- from an L.A. operation called TINI.

As any avid follower of the couple knows, their Christmas separation isn't anything to raise an eyebrow over: These two have a New Year's Eve tradition. For the past two years they've done their own little countdown on the modest Isle of Wight, a seaside haven that offers them added privacy.

Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson are sure things at box office

Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart are box-office gold

Hey Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson — we at the Ministry love a sure thing, and that you are. The "Twilight Saga" couple top a new list of actors who provide the most bang for their buck.

While some overpaid stars only break even or get labeled as the dreaded "box-office poison," Forbes has compiled a list of talent that nets big money for studios and production companies beyond their pay rates.

Stewart comes in at No. 1 on the list, fetching $55.83 for every $1 she's paid. Impressive, considering Stewart's stomping grounds as a post-adolescent actor have been indies (save for "Twilight," natch). Next she'll square off against Charlize Theron in "Snow White and the Huntsman."

Anne Hathaway comes in No. 2, nabbing $45.67 to the dollar, followed by Pattinson at $39.43 per note. Calculations were made using stars who have opened at least three films in the past five years, excluding animation.

Rounding out the top 10 are Daniel Radcliffe, Shia LaBeouf, Robert Downey Jr., Matt Damon, Cate Blanchett, Meryl Streep and Johnny Depp.

'Breaking Dawn' birth scene causing seizures in the audience?

Is 'Breaking Dawn' giving moviegoers seizures?

Apparently some of the fainting at screenings of "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn -- Part 1" isn't over the epic romance between Edward Cullen and Bella Swan. Folks are allegedly having epileptic seizures.

A report Friday said a California man and his girlfriend were watching the vampire love story when, during a particularly gory scene, he started convulsing.

"I didn’t really remember what happened after that I think I blacked out. According to her [his lady, Kelly Bauman], I was shaking and mumbling different noises," Brandon Gephart told ABC News.

The scene in question involves Kristen Stewart's Bella giving violent birth to half-human, half-vampire spawn, a situation not only bloody and frenetic in nature but also featuring special effects including sudden bursts of light. This kind of content has been known to trigger "photosensitive epilepsy," which can send a viewer into mini-seizures.

Another man who asked to remain anonymous reported similar symptoms after watching the scene at a theater in Salt Lake City. (Don't worry, dude, your "Twilight" secret is safe with us.)

A request for comment from "Twilight" production company Summit Entertainment wasn't immediately returned Friday. The frequency, intensity, pattern and size of a flashing light source, as well as the viewer's distance from the light, all factor into photosensitive epilepsy, according to the nonprofit Epilepsy Therapy Project.

'Breaking Dawn' screenwriter talks Stephenie Meyer's weight loss

Breaking Dawn: Stephenie Meyere has lost weight
"Twilight" book author Stephenie Meyer is adored by fans for the vampire romance phenomenon she penned, but for weeks the Ministry has been admiring her new figure.

In early November, the author showed up at Grauman's Chinese Theatre in Hollywood for a handprint and footprint ceremony starring "Twilight Saga" trio Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner -- and wound up turning a few heads herself with a slimmed-down silhouette. 

So how did she do it?

"Honestly, watching what she eats, and exercise," franchise screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg told us at Monday's "Breaking Dawn" premiere. "Diet and exercise. And she looks fantastic." 

Based on the above photos, we'd have to agree (on the left, Meyer poses with Peter Facinelli at 2010's "Eclipse" premiere; on the right, she hugs Taylor Lautner at Monday night's after-party).

"You know, she had lost some weight when we filmed the wedding scene together," Rosenberg recalled of the on-screen matrimony of Stewart and Pattinson, "but then I saw her at the 'Breaking Dawn' junket and just thought, holy smoke."

Congrats, Stephenie.

'Breaking Dawn' stages wedding reception for premiere party

Stephenie Meyer and Taylor Lautner at the Breaking Dawn premiere party

In theme with the anticipated wedding of Bella Swan and Edward Cullen in "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn -- Part 1," Monday's U.S. premiere threw a massive after-party that re-created the characters' wedding reception -- and their honeymoon.

In a setting that was part tropical island shore, part Washington forest, the film's leads Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner turned up to greet castmates, filmmakers and fans at the space constructed across from L.A. Live.

Director Bill Condon toasted his team under the approving gaze of the series' author, Stephenie Meyer, and screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg, as well as supporting cast members such as Kellan Lutz, Ashley Greene, Nikki Reed and Jackson Rathbone.

Jackson Rathbone and Peter Facinelli smooch Elizabeth Reaser"I'm very happy with the film," Lutz told the Ministry while hosting a table of guys that included actor Ryan Rottman.

"Twilight" always brings famous fans as well, including Rob Lowe, Michael Chiklis and Arnold and Maria Shriver's boy Patrick Schwarzenegger. 

Produced again by Chad Hudson, the party featured a raised platform where the wedding tableau was re-created. More than 1,000 wisterias hung from vines above wooden benches and an epic trellis under which enthusiasts took photos.

Catching up with Rosenberg, who picked at sweet potato fries and sipped bubbly while twirling in her Carolina Herrera gown, she gushed that the designer had walked the red carpet with her.

"That was totally my highlight," Rosenberg said.

While Stewart changed out of her gown and into a white camisole, Lautner stayed suited to chat up industry types before all three leads left to grab a plane for London.

Across from the wedding reception stage was a beach scene with ocean waves projected onto the wall, romantic lounge furniture and even a few chess boards as a nod to Edward and Bella's honeymoon activity (well, one of their activities).  

While Rathbone puzzled folks in a crushed, red velvet suit, "Twilight" vampire parents Peter Facinelli and Elizabeth Reaser mingled with Billy Burke and Sarah Clarke from the human set.

Heads turned for Bruno Mars, who is featured on the soundtrack -- but there was one real showstopper: Hudson brought in the actual prop wedding cake from the film set, surrounding it with bejeweled cupcakes and ropes of pearls.
