Kristen Stewart: 'I think it's weird that we have underwear with Taylor's face on it'

New Moon undergarments were a popular subject last night. Taylor Lautner told Jay Leno about the time that a fortysomething Twilight Mom asked him if she could take off the Team Taylor panties she was wearing for him to sign them, and Kristen Stewart answered the following when asked by Conan O’Brien to name a piece of Twilight merchandise that she finds strange: “I think it’s weird that we have underwear with Taylor’s face on it.” Not missing a beat, O’Brien replied, “There’s underwear with Taylor’s face on it? Where is this available?”

Conan didn’t ask Stewart if she was dating costar Robert Pattinson. Instead, he kept to safe subjects, like the film’s rampant shirtlessness (“There’s one or two moments where they take shirts off for no reason,” he said. “Like, phone rings, ‘I’ll get it.’ [Pretends to take shirt off]”), her Bella doll (“I think that she doesn’t really look a whole lot like me,” Stewart said. “She’s very well-endowed”) and those “passionate” fans. Stewart doesn’t know how to handle the crying ones, and feels bad that she can’t have a real conversation with people and wishes she could, like, give them her shoes. She once had to be carried out of a bookstore in Italy by her security because people were going to pull her arms off. Not that they’d want to. “I mean, some people probably would,” she joked. “eBay!” O’Brien said.

Stewart’s awkwardness was endearing. (It’s like that once you’ve seen it a few times.) Conan appeared to have genuinely surprised her when he faked pulling up his shirt to mimic a fan showing her a tattoo of her face on his chest. He noted how uncomfortable she looked rocking in her seat while watching a clip from the film, which, he said, clearly scared her. “I was terrified. That’s what the problem was,” she said. “I thought the wolf may have come to get me or something.” If doing TV is nerve-wracking for her, this appearance was worth it for one reason: She asked for and was granted permission to touch Conan’s hair.

What did you think of Stewart’s stop on The Tonight Show? Can her proud father, a stage manager who only shows off interviews in which she uses complete sentences, boast about this one? (I say yes.) And what about that bit that Conan did with his brooding vampire personal assistant? Cody Devereaux (RIP) was overshadowed by the “hunky mummy” that decided to stand next to “passionate wolf boy” and keep Conan’s cellphone in his bandage briefs. Speaking of well-endowed…

    My favorite Cody Deveraux skit so far. The look on Conan’s face when the mummy pulled the phone out was classic.

  • Olga

    Drove by the L.A. movie premier on my way to work.. really a sad scene, bunch of old hags, and ugly fat chicks, and you know none of them will ever be with a guy.. hell, I bet that horrible actor, slash, only has a career for being pretty, slash, star of that crap did not look at the horrible scene.. it might depress him to know that he only attracts the ugly

      My, what a lovely dinner guest you must be. But don’t worry, your insecurity/fear of inadequacy isn’t showing. And by the way? The “/” on your keyboard is just below the question mark. On your right. Bottom row.

      • ty02

    Glad she decided to be less akward and more opened. Regarding the twilight craze, same as we’ve been able to get over Jack Dawson and Titanic, people will get over Twilight. So don’t waste your young years acting like a weirdo and live your life, Kristen.

  • badz

    Great interview from Kristen. I mean I’m not that Twilight Fan. But I love this woman. She is true to herself. And she is pretty in her dress with that interview also.

  • Diehard Twilight fan

    Likewise ;-)

  • timelord

    i mean seriously..didnt any of these fans see the twilight movie? it sucked..playing baseball only during thunder storms? a lot of brooding looks…i cant for the life of me understand what the fuss is all about!!!!

    • Yesenia

      If you understood why they do it, it would seem like a good idea and it was a great scene in the movie.

    • swthompson

      hey, that’s my favorite scene in the whole movie! If you had superhuman strength and didn’t want mortals to know about it, you might wait for a thunderstorm, too!

    • Shana

      well the Twilight film last year was primarily produced to cater to fans of the book. I assume you haven’t read it and that’s why you find the baseball scene, etc dumb.

  • Yesenia

    I was pleasantly surprised by her. She seemed happier and more at ease with the process of interviews. She looked lovely as well.

  • katieg

    you have to read the books to understand the fascination & these actors portray them well. love the twisaga.

    • Shana


  • K.W.

    She doesn’t look nervous so much as cold. You realize how cold they keep it in those studios?

  • Heather2

    I loved her dress. I like her hair better straight, like it was in Germany.

    Thought she did a great job and was funny.

    Love Mullet Mofo!!!
