Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson top Forbes' list of highest-grossing onscreen couples

When it comes to love stories, the folks at Forbes have come to a shocking conclusion: Vampires rule.

Forbes has released a list of Hollywood’s Highest-Grossing Romantic Couples (onscreen), and the results include the usual suspects. Far and away the most popular romantic movie of the last three years (the length of time Forbes measured) was the Twilight franchise, making Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson the top-earning pairing.The duo’s offscreen relationship — and the ensuing media frenzy — probably didn’t hurt things. In addition, Twilight had an advantage of having more than one film open over the past three years, but even if the grosses weren’t combined, they would have won the award. As it is, the Twilight movies have brought in over 1.17 billion dollars the last three years, trouncing all other competitors.

In the battle for the rest, Channing Tatum was great news for romantic films. The Vow, co-starring Rachel McAdams, was enough for that duo to earn second place with 125 million; Tatum also got on the list at number six for Dear John with Amanda Seyfried. Other top earners included Jennifer Aniston and Adam Sandler ($103 million for Just Go With It) as well as real-life couple Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth in The Last Song ($63 million).

Forbes ranks Robert Downey Jr. top grossing actor of 2012

The number crunchers over at Forbes have an announcement: Robert Downey Jr. is the top grossing actor of the year.

The Avengers was the only film Downey starred in this year, but its box office take, 1.5 billion worldwide, was high enough to propel him to the number one spot. But the Forbes crown comes with a few stipulations: For the box office money to count toward an actor’s total for the year, they must have had a leading role in the film — that Johnny Depp cameo in 21 Jump Street doesn’t count! — and for The Avengers, the Forbes team deemed Downey the star over his co-actors. “Yes, The Avengers are a group but Downey is clearly the main star,” Forbes explained. “Much of the film relied on Downey’s charm and humor.”

Other people raking in the box office cash this year were usual suspects like the Twilight trio. Kristen Stewart came in at number two combining her Twilight box office with Snow White and the Huntsman. Franchise-starrers such as Christian Bale, Daniel Craig, and Jennifer Lawrence also did well. Interestingly, the article states that they gave leading role status to Stewart’s co-stars Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner, allowing all three credit for Breaking Dawn – Part 2’s massive haul. But for other franchise movies it was just the lead, which explains why Emma Stone, who co-starred in The Amazing Spider-Man, isn’t on this list, but Andrew Garfield ranks number seven.

A newbie and a superfan discuss 'Breaking Dawn -- Part 2.' Will the romance work on a Twi-virgin?

ADAM B. VARY: Last year, I guided my colleague Dan Snierson through his very first experience with a wizard named Harry Potter — Dan had neither read J.K. Rowling’s books nor seen any of the movies, and we both wanted to see what would happen when a Potter newbie watched the final Potter movie. He had fun, I had fun, and I daresay at least four or five readers of our subsequent conversation about the experience had fun too.

And now it would seem the wand is in the other hand, or the the promise ring is on the other finger, or something. Because as I write these words, the final feature film in The Twilight Saga is nigh upon us, but this time, I’m the one who has never read any of Stephenie Meyer’s books nor seen any of the feature films. As I gear up to become the pop-culture guinea pig and see Breaking Dawn — Part 2 with only the second-hand knowledge I’ve absorbed walking the halls of EW, you, Denise Warner, have bravely agreed to escort me through all the vampiric romance and Taylor Lautner shirtlessness. I mean, there will be shirtlessness, right?

DENISE WARNER: You know, I can’t promise shirtlessness. READ FULL STORY

'Twilight' is a marathon, not a sprint

When I volunteered to watch a five-movie Twilight Saga marathon, I’ll admit I didn’t fully anticipate the challenges and doubts I’d encounter along the way. As the weeks, then days, then hours ticked down, I realized I’d need to get my head in the game. I trained like any marathoner would, honing skills appropriate to the course — subsisting on a diet of carbohydrates, carbonated drinks, and stale air; sitting on my rear for long periods of time, and abandoning all thoughts of age-appropriate content or cinematic quality. Also like any marathoner, I blacked out for long periods of time between the start and finish lines. But! Here’s what I do remember… READ FULL STORY

'Twilight: Breaking Dawn -- Part 2': On-the-scene fan reactions

If you’re at the midnight premiere of Twilight: Breaking Dawn — Part 2 (well, technically, a 10 p.m. Thursday night show) chances are you’re already more than familiar about what exactly goes down in the finale of the vampire saga. With my colleagues Lanford Beard (who was coming off an all-day Twilight marathon) and Denise Warner, we braved the first public showtime in Manhattan alongside a – no surprise – sold-out crowd. More surprising was how adult and costume-free our group seemed to be.

While our theater clearly was audibly buzzing with anticipation, the dirty little secret is that in the book, not a whole heck of a lot happens in the second half of Breaking Dawn. There’s a Volturi battle, and an arm-wrestling match (What big muscles you have, Emmett!), but there’s also a ton of contemplative stares and thoughts on Jacob’s relationship with Renesmee. So you can forgive fans for being a little skeptical, albeit excited, when I asked them for their thoughts prior to the final film release. READ FULL STORY

'Twilight' Memories: A total 'Eclipse' of the heart

With The Twilight Saga coming to an end, we’re reliving our favorite memories from the first four films. Eclipse is up!

How many times I saw it in theaters: 0

I couldn’t bring myself to watch Bella slobber all over Jacob on a big screen. I saw it for the first time when it came out on demand, and I fast-forwarded through all the Jacob parts.

How many times I’ve seen it since: 1

This time, I forced myself to watch the entire movie.

Kristen Stewart discusses sex scenes on 'Conan' -- VIDEO

If you think Kristen Stewart seems uncomfortable during interviews, just imagine how awkwardly she must have felt while filming “aggressive” sex scenes for Breaking Dawn — Part 2.

Stewart discussed her on-screen discomfort on Conan last night, confessing that vampire lovemaking isn’t all glitter and sunshine. Her character Bella may finally be “on top,” but Stewart said the director’s technique of shooting a close-up of her “schmexy faces” during those sex scenes made her want to shoot herself. What’s that, a pun from Stewart? She really is a new woman!
