Five things Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart might have talked about during their reunion

It’s been a while since Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart made headlines, but consider this a Halloween treat: The Twilight stars and ex-lovers were spotted in the same place, according to E! Online.

E! has photographic proof that the artists formerly known as Robsten spent time together. Since we are deeply invested in their relationship, we hope they engaged in a friendly conversation that, over time, will lead to their reconciliation, eventual marriage and ultimately several beautiful children.

But we don’t actually know what was said during this secret meeting. So here are five possible topics they might have discussed:

'Fifty Shades of Grey': Bret Easton Ellis tweets that Robert Pattinson was E. L. James' first choice for Christian

After countless rumors, fake magazine covers, secret conversations, and fan-made movie trailers, Charlie Hunnam has officially been cast as rich-playboy-with-a-secret Christian Grey in the big-screen adaptation of E. L. James’ Fifty Shades of Grey. But that doesn’t mean he was the author’s first choice.

According to Bret Easton Ellis, who had once expressed interest in writing the screenplay, James pictured Robert Pattinson in the role of Christian, who’s described in the books as having dark copper-colored hair and, of course, those unforgettable gray eyes.

Ellis tweeted that not only was Pattinson James’ first choice, but that fan favorites Matt Bomer and Ian Somerhalder were “never in the running.” Check out Ellis’ tweets below: READ FULL STORY

I'm Still Not Over ... The twist ending of 'Remember Me'

Here at PopWatch, we’re reminiscing about the pop culture moments that we still can’t get over — no matter how much time has passed.

It’s been three years since the release of 2010′s Remember Me, starring Robert Pattinson and Emilie de Ravin as two NYU students from different social classes, and similarly discordant family relationships, who end up falling in love. Sounds harmless, albeit even a little boring, right? Well, while I was sunk into my movie chair, going through the motions of this one-note film, soaring on a neutral emotional plane, thinking this run-of-the-mill romance-drama can’t get any better or worse, so might as well enjoy the aesthetic pleasures of Pattinson’s face and decide what to make for dinner, in a place I thought was a safe space, the movie theater transformed into a bubbling cauldron of audible audience outrage, severe shock, and popcorn projectile…

… when I saw how Remember Me ended.

It transformed the movie from the ordinary to the extraordinary offensive.

I remember other theatergoers spouting Oh no, they didn’t!, Oh, my god!, and for the taciturn, simple No, No, No‘s while distastefully shaking their heads.

'Twilight' dominates Teen Choice Awards nominations

The sun has set (or risen?) on Summit Entertainment’s venerable vampire series — but even though it, like Robsten, is officially kaput, Twilight still holds a hypnotic power over people of a certain age. (That age is “young.”)

The last installment of the blood-sucking saga dominates the “first wave” of nominees at this year’s Teen Choice Awards, which single out the movies, TV series, music, fashion, comedians, athletes, and performers that resonate most with today’s 13- through 19-year-olds. The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 2 snagged seven nods, nine if you include star Taylor Lautner’s individual nominations for Choice Male Hottie and Choice Smile.

But even if you’re over the Cullens, there must be something you like on this list — the nominees range from Argo to Zooey Deschanel, and they cover everything from mainstream action movies to “Choice Electronic Dance Music Artist.” A full list of first-wave nominees is below; starting now, fans of an appropriate age can vote once per category each day at the TCA’s website. Additional nominees, as well as performers, presenters, and a host will be announced soon. The two-hour awards ceremony will air live Sunday, Aug. 11 at 8 p.m. ET on Fox.

On her birthday, a celebration of Kristen Stewart's endearing awkwardness

Some of you might know her as Kristen Stewart. Others of you refer to her as K.Stew or “that chick who cheated on Robert Pattinson.” But regardless of what you call her, there’s one aspect of Stewart that everybody seems to be talking about, and it’s not her acting chops. The girl is socially awkward. That’s no secret. And sometimes, it does come off as though she doesn’t care about anything. Could her hair have looked a little nicer at the Oscars? Yes. Could she be a little more attentive in interviews? Yes. I understand the annoyance that many of you feel, but I also think her awkwardness is a good thing. And today’s her birthday, so hear me out… READ FULL STORY

'Warm Bodies': Which supernatural is right for you?

It’s time for Mystery Date: Supernatural Edition! While the whole vampire craze may be drawing to a close (Twilight: Breaking Dawn — Part 2 comes out on DVD March 2) 2013 is still on track to be a huge year for those that love the supernatural. Apologies to viewers who enjoy their zombies more in the style of Walking Dead, but it’s looking like the biggest trend is more romance, less death and destruction. Warm Bodies, in theaters today, centers around a love story between zombie R. and a human, Julie. It’s a great read – and surprisingly, in between the killing and the brain eating, a wonderfully original and charming boy-ish meets girl tale.

Which got us thinking: Readers probably have their personal favorites when it comes to the guys that portray these vampires, zombies, and werewolves (Ian Somerhalder, Robert Pattinson, Alexander Skarsgard, etc.) But what if we took the actors out of it? Based solely on the plotlines in the current books/movies/television shows, which supernatural should you, a “normal” human with a slight love on danger, attempt to begin a relationship with? The answer may surprise you – or help you justify a couple all-too-real conversations about an alleged hypothetical situation (ahem).

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.

Kristen Stewart is really, really, really sorry she cheated on Robert Pattinson

Although Kristen Stewart has already apologized to her boyfriend Robert Pattinson for cheating on him with her Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders, she now wants to say she’s sorry again — this time, to her fans.

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
