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

Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart in "Breaking Dawn Part 2" trailer

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.

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 -- Part 1': A love fest will greet its arrival

The "Breaking Dawn" wedding can be re-created at Madame Tussauds in London

With the premiere of "Breaking Dawn -- Part 1" coming at midnight Thursday, "Twilight" fandom is officially entering its final -- and perhaps its most bizarre -- stages.

To commemorate the series' penultimate installment, Madame Tussauds in London has invited female "Twilight" fans to come to the wax museum Friday dressed as brides and re-create the wedding of Edward and Bella by "marrying" their statue of Robert Pattinson as vampire Edward Cullen.

If the Twi-hard in question is lucky enough to have a real wedding on tap (to a breathing person, waxy or not) they can travel to the site of Edward and Bella's honeymoon, the Brazilian town of Paraty, which stood in for Brazil's Isle Esme in the film. There, fans have the option of renting out the location where Edward and Bella finally consummated their on-screen relationship for about $7,000 for a two-night stay. Or they can follow in the footsteps of the real-life couple Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson, who stayed at the nearby hotel Pousada du Oro during filming. The rates there are a little more reasonable, with a suite going for about $700 per night.

In Flower Mound, Texas, a suburb of Dallas, two Twi-hard moms have laid down their credit cards to rent out an entire auditorium for them and their friends to watch Edward and Bella get married in semi-private. One of the women, Christy Lorbach, told Dallas-Fort Worth station KDAF they did it "because it's our night … once a year, no, once every 18 months. There were 500 some odd days between these two movies.  No, that’s our night."

And back in England, one British fan who spent $6,320 and 46 hours to cover her body in tattoos of Edward, Bella and Jacob managed to take advantage of the next-to-last wave of "Twilight" mania by getting Pattinson to sign her arm at the film's British premiere.

"Robert signed my arm and I am going to get my tattooist to trace its outline so I have it on me permanently," 50-year-old fan Cathy Ward told the Daily Mail. She’s going to spend another $3,000 to finish the tattoos over her arms and chest. She claims her "Twilight" fandom helped her lose enough weight to go down 14 dress sizes.

With the final film in the series coming next year, it's still possible for "Twilight" fandom to cure cancer. Or at least generate one last gasp of extravagant spending.

'Breaking Dawn' stages wedding reception for 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.

'Breaking Dawn': Stewart, Pattinson, Lautner at a crossroads

Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner at the "Breaking Dawn" premiere

At "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 1" premiere Monday night, there were the usual screaming fans, outlandish signs and slew of press outlets. But for the first time at a "Twilight Saga" premiere, stars Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner weren't preparing to film another installment in the mega-popular franchise.

Since "Breaking Dawn" Parts 1 and 2 wrapped this year, the actors have been free to pursue other film offers. Lautner, for one, just had his first leading-man turn in the action flick "Abduction" — which, unfortunately, did not do near the level of business typical for a "Twilight" film.

Indeed, the 19-year-old admitted, he finds himself at an interesting crossroads. Asked if he is excited to be moving on to post-"Twilight" projects, he replied: "No and yes."

"It's moreso no, I'm not excited to be done. We have a lot fun making these movies together. We all get along great, and we're like a family by this point, so it's tough," he explained. "But yes at the same time, because we get to go off and do other things as actors, and this has been an incredible platform for us."

Stewart, meanwhile, is filming "Snow White and the Huntsman." Still, on the black carpet, she seemed comfortable jumping back into "Twilight" world, saying she found herself surprisingly at ease playing a mother in the latest film, out Friday.

"I really took to it. My favorite thing to play in this was that feral sort of mother," she explained. "None of it was really as strange as you think it would be.

"I guess it got strange when things were incredibly unreal, like when we had a fake baby. The real babies were amazing to work with, but suddenly you pick up this goopy, hairy doll, and it just doesn't really work.

As for what Pattinson found most surreal about shooting the infamous birth scene in the film, he offered up this, um, lovely gem:

"I mean, it's a little bit difficult to get more surreal than chewing through a placenta."

"Breaking Dawn -- Part 1" premiere camp in L.A.

This post has been corrected, as indicated below.

One big difference between the "Breaking Dawn" premiere campers, and the folks farther northeast downtown at Occupy L.A.? The Twi-hards have a clear set of demands: "Twilight," "Twilight" and more "Twilight" -- and if you would cap that with a little Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner on the red carpet before "Breaking Dawn -- Part 1" premieres at the Nokia Theatre, everyone would go home happy.

The "Breaking Dawn" fans, who've been camped in tents gathered under a larger tent at L.A. Live since Wednesday, got some extra entertainment Sunday morning: Supporting cast members, including Cullen family patriarch Peter Facinelli, vampire Jackson Rathbone, werewolf BooBoo Stewart and Denali vixens Casey LaBow and MyAnna Buring showed up for a breakfast-time autograph session and photo fest ahead of Monday's big event.

The "big three" stars will hit the scene Monday evening.

Twilight saga author Stephenie Meyer also showed ahead of the red carpet for the first time, handing out 600 pre-autographed copies of "Breaking Dawn" and delighting fans, some of whom thanked her for friendships that had resulted because of her books. 

"They're really kind to each other, which I love, and all very excited," Meyer said in a video interview Sunday, "and looking pretty good for having slept on the street."

The Ministry of Gossip will have the premiere's official live-streaming video from the red carpet starting at 5 p.m. PST -- so either bookmark this post or come back to the Ministry later to see KStew, RPattz, Taylor and more from the red carpet in Los Angeles.

There's a premiere in London's Stratford district Wednesday, and the movie hits U.S. theaters Friday.

[For the record, 6:11 p.m.: As commenters Andrea Lavigne and Candice Davis point out below, this post originally mixed up details on roles played by Jackson Rathbone, Casey LaBow and MyAnna Buring. Should be right now! No excuses, just blushing bright red right -- now back to the live feed and Twitter!/cdz.]
