Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart 'Oprah' Gig

David Slade's The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, starring Robert Pattinson as the vampire Edward Cullen, Kristen Stewart as the all-too-human Bella Swan, Taylor Lautner as the werewolf Jacob Black, plus various vampires and werewolves, had its preview screening during a taping of Oprah Winfrey's television show featuring the three aforementioned stars plus Dakota Fanning.

As to be expected, some audience members right away began tweeting about their impressions of the film. The buzz coming from those Twilight fans has been quite positive – few should be surprised by that bit of news – with some placing Eclipse ahead of both Catharine Hardwicke's Twilight (2008) and Chris Weitz's The Twilight Saga: New Moon (2009).

Also, according to some reports Oprah began nosily asking Pattinson and Stewart questions about their off-screen relationship (if any). Neither one wanted to tell Oprah “Yes” or “No” – or “It's none of your business.” Especially not the third option. After all, she's Oprah. She can crown kings, make volcanoes stop spewing ash, and lure my mother-in-law into buying a pair of pants that don't fit just because she saw them on Winfrey's show. Well, Pattinson, witty as always, joked that Kristen Stewart was pregnant. Stewart's response: “If I'm pregnant, then Rob's going to have the baby.”

Oprah must have been licking her lips wishing that were true, so she could have the surrogate father and his baby on some future show. Now, watch Pattinson's joke become “news” on some online and/or supermarket tabloid or other. Or on Twitter and Facebook. In fact, the mad buzz has already begun.

The Oprah show featuring Pattinson, Stewart, Lautner, and Fanning will be aired on May 13. The Twilight Saga: Eclipse will be released in the United States on June 30.

Eclipse's “official” world premiere will apparently be held in Hollywood on June 24, while an “unofficial” screening will take place that same evening at the Los Angeles Film Festival in downtown LA.

Also in the Eclipse cast: Bryce Dallas Howard, Kellan Lutz, Xavier Samuel, Jackson Rathbone, and Peter Facinelli.

Eclipse's The Cullen Men – Kellan Lutz as Emmett, Peter Facinelli as Dr. Carlisle, Jackson Rathbone as Jasper, Robert Pattinson as Edward – are discussing something mighty serious in the above photo. Perhaps Victoria's imminent attack? Because he's standing a little away from the others, Pattinson's Edward is the first one to catch our eye (even though he looks a tad blurry – click on the photo to enlarge it).

Peter Facinelli is the second one to have caught my eye in the photo (in any Twilight photo), chiefly because I find his make-up really overdone. Wouldn't someone in Forks and elsewhere have noticed that there's something a little odd about the way the venerable Dr. Carlisle looks?

In the Los Angeles Times, Yvonne Villarreal talked with Lutz, Facinelli, and Rathbone, in addition to fellow Cullen family members Elizabeth Reaser (matriarch Esme Cullen), Ashley Greene (Alice Cullen), and Nikki Reed (Rosalie Hale).

Here are a couple of snippets from the Times piece:

From Elizabeth Reaser: “Esme is still a vampire. She still wants to kill people all day long. It was interesting to get in touch with the vampire side of her in ways that haven't really been explored. Her family is in danger, and that brings out the mama bear in her.”

Kellan Lutz calls the Eclipse stunts “cool,” while Ashley Greene says that “Alice gets a little edgier with each installment…It's a reminder to the audience that even though we restrain ourselves at times, we're still vampires and we're dangerous.”

Also in the Eclipse cast: Kristen Stewart, Taylor Lautner, Bryce Dallas Howard (as Victoria), Xavier Samuel, and Dakota Fanning.

Directed by David Slade, The Twilight Saga: Eclipse will be released in the United States on June 30.

    Mya, Roberts an honest guy. I think it's her that doesn't want people to know about the relationship. Robert is open about his life and family.

  2. Diorgo

    There is no way they are NOT dating? If this is some kind of PR stunt, then Kristen would have traveled to Budapest, Hungary to spend her 20th Birthday to satisfy the suits at Summitt. Really?

  3. Mya

    that must suck…not to just be able to hang out, IF they are in fact dating. i hope they are a couple, but I'm starting to have my doubts. I think Summit wants them to keep the mystery swirling b/c it adds to the Twilight suspense. SO, it's either they are dating OR they are not dating bc Summit wants them to play this cat & mouse game with us. Because if they weren't dating, it's just so easy to say no we're not dating….sort of like Barbara Walters and Ricky Martin…..”Are you gay?….(awkard silence) + “i dont discuss my sexual orientation” = yes i'm gay. here sometimes failure to answer suggests yes…..OMG..maybe they'll come clean after breaking dawn if they're still dating then.

    “Now, watch Pattinson's joke become “news” on some online and/or supermarket tabloid or other.”

    Actually Robert Pattinson's joke WAS taken from a tabloid. An Australian tabloid claimed over a year ago that Robert Pattinson was pregnant with Kristen Stewart's baby. Pattinson brings up that ridiculous story in interviews a lot. That's what his joke to Oprah was about. Everybody knows they are dating they just don't want to talk about it. http://www.tvsquad.com/2010/03/09/tabloid-story-claims-robert-pattinson-is-pregnant-video/
