While we were smack in the middle of watching and live-tweeting last night’s Project Runway, Lorenzo did the gay gasp, looked up from his laptop, and momentarily channeled one of our teenage nieces.
“OhmigoddidyouseeKristenStewart? In W? Ohmigodshelooksamazing!”
Tom, totally used to these sorts of outbursts and in mid-tweet, said, “Mmm. We’ll do that tomorrow, then. Did you remember to finish your homework and put in your retainer?”
“Shut up. I hate this family.”
But that little drama queen was right. She really does look astonishingly good.

On having a particular interest in vampires: “I f—— love me a vampire [Laughs]. I was 17 when I read Twilight, and at the time it was so perfect for me. The script was about young kids who think they can handle stuff that they just can’t. And they’re going to do it anyway. Because, why not? Just torture yourself. I relate to that. Vampires are a little dangerous – and we girls like to test ourselves.”
On saying goodbye to Bella: “I’d been anticipating that end-of-Bella moment. I was going, Oh, my God—I wonder how I’m going to feel. And the last scene of the shoot was at the wedding. Every single character was there on set. At the end of that day, I was kind of whacked. And so I never really had that moment then. Instead, it happened later. We needed to film one more sort of honeymoon scene and we went to the Virgin Islands. After that scene, my true final scene, I felt like I could shoot up into the night sky and every pore of my body would shoot light. I felt lighter than I’ve ever felt in my life.”
On watching herself onscreen: “It’s not like I sit around watching my movies again and again, but I’ve never quite believed actors when they say they don’t watch themselves. I hear them going around the block to make excuses for why they don’t watch their work. It’s bulls—. Sorry, guys – I know you watch your stuff.”
No real thoughts on the interview bites. You guys dissect them. Truth be told, she’s never struck us a particularly interesting person. That’s not exactly rare among stars, but she either doesn’t do a very good job of hiding it or takes a more refreshing approach of not really giving a shit. It depends on how inclined you are to like her, we guess.
For us, unsurprisingly, it’s all about the pics:
We wouldn’t suggest she adopt this look for public appearances. It’s a bit too Ann-Margret by way of RuPaul’s Drag Race to be a workable real-world (or as “real-world” as the red carpet gets) look.
But damn, is it fierce.
