There is a fine line between acting and singing. Not everyone can criss-cross platforms, but when they do, they can get very infectious – making that leap from silver screen to your iPods. Here are some of today’s actors who can actually sing:

Just days before the Oscars, Kristen Stewart had been awarded a different kind of Trophy. The trophy for being the most UGLIEST Hollywood Starlet, For the English guys.


British men we’re recently polled to determine which actresses they’ve found are the most ugly – and probably the ones they would not want to get their teeth on and princess Snow White surprisingly reigns.

Stewart is that Hollywood actress – who had a fling with married director Rupert Sanders while dating movie hunk Robert Pattinson (who are both British by the way) – that stars as Bella on the Twilight Saga.


A spokesman for MenKind said: “Our Oscars poll has been a fascinating insight into the minds of British men – it’s shown that sexiness and beauty is far more than appearance. They were turned off by volatile and moody actresses as well as ice queens. And they don’t want to see unhealthily skinny starlets on the big screen.”

Do Brits think Snow White is an ice queen? Is she too thin? Or did Liberty Ross and R-Patz merely encourage their friends to vote against the starlet who hirted them? We have no earthly idea! But we guess beauty is not everything nowadays. And we like that.

Guess who comes in second though? This comes to us with no surprise – Lindsay Lohan. Of course.


Chcheck out the complete list of winners (or losers) below and let us know if you agree:

1. Kristen Stewart
2. Sarah Jessica Parker
3. Lindsay Lohan
4. Denise Richards
5. Kirsten Dunst
6. Mischa Barton
7. Hilary Swank
8. Lucy Liu
9. Tilda Swinton
10. Uma Thurman



What’s In The New Moon DVD?

It’s officially out today, so Twilight fans are probably in line at the video stores or waiting by their mailbox for the New Moon DVD. Some die-hard fans aren’t exactly excited to watch the movie all over again. They’re in it for the bonus DVD, where they can view behind-the-scenes clips, deleted scenes, never-before-seen red carpet footage, and much more.

Here are some documentary clips that fans are looking forward to watching:

Too many mosquitoes. During that scene in the forest where Edward tells Bella that he will never see her again, there were so many mosquitoes. Director Chris Weitz says he certainly couldn’t show a mosquito landing on a vampire’s nose, “sucking blood from the apparently bloodless Edward,” so they filmed many, many takes.

Shirtless in the cold. Taylor Lautner’s character Jacob supposedly has a temperature of 108 degrees, so he’s not supposed to get cold. A shirtless Taylor had to act like he wasn’t freezing under the rain, but as soon as the director yells “cut!” he would run to warm up under a parka.

Stunt doubles outnumbered the main cast. They were everywhere—getting beat up by Volturi, jumping into a cliff, etc.

Read up on the other deleted scenes here, or better yet, order your own copy of the two-disc Special Edition New Moon DVD here.


The Runaways: Then and Now

The Runaways had its red carpet premiere last Tuesday at The Arclight Theaters in Hollywood, California. It was a cool moment in rock ‘n roll history when lead actresses Dakota Fanning and Kristen Stewart ran into real-life Runaways Joan Jett and Cherie Currie.

Dakota and Kristen play Joan and Cherie respectively in the ’70s biopic of their all-girl rock band The Runaways. Fans are looking forward to Dakota’s mature role and her onscreen kiss with rebel Kristen.

Although the PG kind is worried about the movie’s sexual, druggie, and wild partying themes, I say nay to the critics! The ’70s was an iconic time in history when rock ‘n roll was in its purest form—way before the pop kind tainted it with bubblegum and candy.

Two days to go before it’s out for public consumption!

The Runaways’ New TV Spot

Call me a fan. Call me overexcited. Call me a flower child wannabe; I don’t care. March 19 is too far away and I cannot wait to see The Runaways. I’ve raved about it for the past few weeks, and like most overindulgent fans, my heart rate speeds up whenever I see new tidbits, videos, and photos of the movie.

Here’s my fix of the week—the new 30-second TV spot.

There’s also the official teaser poster to smile about.


Hooray for fashionistas! They dare challenge fashion convention and make us look forward to their red carpet photos because we know they won’t be wearing the usual glam gowns.

It was also a night to remember because Prince William was announced as Lord Attenborough’s successor to the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA)’s Presidency.

Before She Was Bella

…Kristen Stewart was a child actress. Remember Jodie Foster’s “Panic Room” back in 2002? Kristen played Jodie Foster’s kid.

I promise I’m not trying to be mean, but I remember watching that movie and kept asking my sister, “Is she a girl or a boy?” Kristen’s character was tomboyish and sported a short boyish haircut in the movie. It was only when the scenes showed family pictures that I realized Kristen was a girl.

Who would’ve thought she’d grow up to play the lead character in one of the hottest movies of the MTV generation?


Fans Wait for Kristen’s Stripper Movie

Kristen Stewart recently hit the Sundance Film Festival with indie film, Welcome to the Rileys. “It’s about a businessman who comes to terms with the death of his daughter through an unlikely relationship with a teenage stripper [played by Kristen],” director Jake Scott told Cinematical.


The 19-year-old Twilight star doesn’t waste any time defending her new role against critics who think that it’s just another stripper movie. “It opens your eyes to people who just don’t have any options,” she said. “I’m speaking very vaguely about it, because [Mallory’s situation is] so awful. But yeah, [not having options] is the only way I can describe it.”

Although Welcome to the Rileys is already earning good reviews at Sundance, fans are on their toes as to when the official trailer and public release date will be announced. For now, you’ll have to settle for Sundance’s limited screenings.


Dakota and Kristen Channel ’70s Rock

I don’t know about you, but I’m getting sick of today’s pre-packaged bubblegum girl bands and popstars. I wasn’t born yet in the ’70s, but they sure had a lot of sincerely talented rockers back then.

In that era, YouTube and Facebook weren’t even invented yet, let alone the Internet, so wannabes had to really prove their mettle in the industry. Getting signed was the only way to get your music out there, so this was a privilege that only a limited number of talents could attain. Male rockers dominated the scene, and female rockers had to double their efforts to get noticed.

When I found out that the biopic of ’70s girl band The Runaways was produced for the big screen, I did a rock-on hand signal and screamed a la Led Zeppelin! The entertainment business needs a major transition from the likes of Camp Rock and High School Musical, and The Runaways made the perfect entrance.

The casters did a great job. Who else could channel the groovy but tough rocker attitudes of Joan Jett and Cherie Currie? Teen stars Dakota Fanning and Kristen Stewart unleash their inner wild child for The Runaways, directed by Floria Sigismondi. The girls even underwent major training and transformations for the flick.

Coming out in spring, the movie is based on lead singer Cherie Currie’s book Neon Angel, a biography of her experiences as a rock star. I cannot wait for this movie! Rock with me now: “I’m your ch-ch-ch-ch-ch-ch-ch-cherry bomb!”


Robert Pattinson may have walked out on Ryan Seacrest, but he did sneak out with Kristen Stewart during the New Moon party in New York. Eyewitnesses say they wanted a more private time together, although there was PDA involved. So Rob, still denying it?

Twilight Stars A Couple

It’s official – well, as official as it can be for now, I guess. Robert Pattinson and Kristern Stewart are a couple. That’s what the director of Twilight, Catherine Hardwicke tells the world. I guess we just have to hear it from the couple, right?


Kristen Stewart: Being Bella Is Not A Ball

Kristen Stewart gained worldwide fame for playing the character of Bella in Twilight. You’d think she loved everything that came with it. The actress says though, that she misses the normalcy of life. Well, young lady, everything has its price.


Kristen Stewart On New Moon

Kristen Stewart says shooting New Moon was not easy. In fact, it just about “killed her.” I guess she really got into her character, didn’t she?

Literally. The two stars were spotted in Vancouver, where they are filming. They were seen all over town, and their cozy snuggling at the Kings of Leon concert just could not be missed by anyone!

Twilight’s Bella To Play Joan Jett

Kristen Stewart, the actress who played the angsty vampire-loving teen Bella in the movieTwilight (yes, the book was a LOT better) is set to play rocker Joan Jett in her upcoming biopic.

According to the Hollywood Reporter:

“The film, The Runaways, which will depict the 1970s all-girl band’s meteoric rise and fall, is being executive-produced by the 50-year-old singer – best known for the hit “I Love Rock ‘N’ Roll,”
