Kristen Stewart joins Untitled Kelly Reichardt Project (photo: Kristen Stewart in 'Clouds of Sils Maria') This news bit has been everywhere online, but just in case you've missed it: History-making César Award winner Kristen Stewart has joined three-time Oscar-nominee Michelle Williams and two-time Oscar nominee Laura Dern in an as yet untitled drama set in Montana and to be directed by Kelly Reichardt.* Deadline.com first broke the story last week (Feb. 27, 2015). If all goes as planned, Kristen Stewart will play a Boise lawyer, who, nervous after accepting a teaching position in a small Montana town, befriends a local woman auditing her class. Kelly Reichardt's usual partners Neil Kopp and Anish Savjani are producing the project, which is supposed to consist of a series of vignettes. Also in the cast: James Le Gros (Point Break), Jared Harris (Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows), and Sara Rodier (The Future »

Liberated from the clumsy cage of the “Twilight” films, Taylor Lautner stars in “Tracers,” an agreeable, if minor, thriller directed by Daniel Benmayor. Set in the concrete cliffs and canyons of Manhattan, the film kicks off when bike messenger Cam (Lautner) literally runs into Nikki (Marie Avgeropoulos) as she and a gang of like-minded individuals are racing up, around and through the city by means of the free-running art called Parkour. It’s a meet-cute with injuries — a beat-cute, if you will — and after Nikki leaves Cam a bike to replace the one she smashed up, he tries »

Leaping through skylights and surfing down stairs, Taylor Lautner and his parkour crew elevate old-fashioned cat burglary to a feat of high-speed, anti-gravity showmanship in “Tracers,” a project that takes what’s anarchic about the sport and runs, jumps and double-somersaults with it. The plot may be as creaky as an old-timer slinking across rooftops in a black turtleneck and domino mask, but the acrobatic stunts more than compensate, many of them performed by Lautner himself. After 2011’s “Abduction” cast his drawing power into question, this youth-skewing, VOD-driven release could be the “Twilight” star’s last gleaming.
Perhaps that’s overstating the stakes, as it’s only Lautner’s short-lived A-list standing that appears to be in question. Although Team Jacob fans managed to sway “Twilight” producers from recasting his role in the sequels, they haven’t turned out in sufficient numbers to carry the teen wolf into a grown-up career, »

Kristen Stewart and Alicia Cargile kept things casual while grabbing coffee together in La on Wednesday. Sporting sweatshirts, beanies, and sunglasses, the pair chatted as they grabbed their drinks. Kristen and Alicia, her rumored girlfriend, have been spending a lot of time together over the past few weeks. Most recently, they stopped by a local market in La together, just a few days after they popped up at Lax. And last month, Kristen and Alicia squeezed in some quality time at the beach in Malibu, CA, playing with Kristen's dog and watching the sunset. Meanwhile, there's plenty of excitement in Kristen's professional life, including critical acclaim for her role in Still Alice. She also covers Interview magazine's annual Fashion Issue, and she was interviewed by legendary musician Patti Smith for the feature. The actress talked candidly about everything from rocking sneakers on the red carpet to her role in Twilight, »
Taylor Lautner‘s upcoming Lionsgate thriller “Tracers” has released a new sneak peek of the “Twilight” star in action.

Taylor Swift keeps ''mementos'' from her previous relationships. The 'Blank Space' hitmaker reportedly keeps an item belonging to each of her ex-boyfriends to remember the relationship and help inspire her musically. A source close to the singer told HollywoodLife.com: ''Taylor collects and keeps mementos from all of her relationships. She has a bracelet and a scarf from Jake Gyllenhaal, guitar picks of John Mayer's, a comfy T-shirt of Taylor Lautner's, a tie of Conor Kennedy's, and of course Harry [Styles'] necklace. It's like she has a trophy case of her past loves. ''She uses the mementos to help her remember her relationships and write emotional lyrics.''

Spidey's coming home!
After the groundbreaking announcement on Monday that Sony and Marvel reached a deal for the beloved Spider-Man to appear in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, we went from marvelously happy to a bit sad. Andrew Garfield will likely not reprise his role -- and let’s face it, he’s a perfect Peter Parker.
But at least we get to speculate on who should be the newest web-slinger.
Logan Lerman is known for his title role in the Percy Jackson films, or as Charlie in Perks of Being a Wallflower. The 23-year-old actor’s gorgeous blue eyes and boyish charm are the perfect combo to perfectly encapsulate Peter Parker.
The Grammy Awards may have taken over La this past weekend, but Kristen Stewart and Alicia Cargile managed to avoid the spectacle. On Sunday, the duo went on a stroll in La's Los Feliz neighborhood and stopped by a local market. While Kristen wore blue jeans and a t-shirt, Alicia went with dark pants and covered up in a sweatshirt. The outing comes a few days after Kristen and Alicia showed sweet Pda while returning home from a quick trip. One week before, the pair went on a double date with Kristen's former Twilight costar Taylor Lautner and actress Katherine Hughes. »
Just two days after flying out of La, Kristen Stewart and Alicia Cargile returned to their West Coast home base on Friday. Sporting jeans, sweatshirts, hats, and Converse lace-ups, the ladies made their way through Lax while carrying lightweight bags. Kristen led the way for Alicia, who held on to Kristen's sweatshirt. The rumored couple's latest appearance comes after several months of fun, during which they've seemed inseparable. Most recently, Kristen and Alicia shared a special moment with Taylor Lautner at Sam Smith's concert in La, and late last month, they squeezed in quality time at the beach. Keep reading to see the duo's latest snaps, and then take the ultimate Kristen quiz. »
The former boy wonder, Xavier Dolan -- he's now 25 -- sauntered into New York about a week or so ago with a new movie, Mommy -- his fifth -- for which he won the Jury Prize at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival and received a thirteen-minute standing ovation. Well, truthfully, he shared the prize with Jean-Luc Godard (Goodbye to Language), which is inarguably like winning a second award. After all, having one's name forever linked with a kingpin of La Nouvelle Vague is nothing to sneeze at. (Who will ever forget Streisand and Hepburn sharing a Best Actress Oscar? New guard joining old guard.)
Talking about the Oscars, Mommy was Canada's submission for the Best Foreign Language Film category, and Dolan had been politicking on the West Coast, to no avail apparently, to get it a final nomination. So this afternoon the French-Canadian was a bit zonked because on top of »

On Friday, Kristen and Taylor linked up at Sam's concert in La. Sam confirmed the reunion with an adorable backstage picture he posted on Instagram. The snap shows the soulful singer sandwiched between Kristen and her rumored girlfriend, Alicia Cargile, and Taylor leaning in close to actress Katherine Hughes. According to reports, the group got together at The Forum before Sam's show started, with Taylor welcoming Kristen with a kiss on the cheek. Taylor and Katherine reportedly stayed close during the event, as she was spotted sitting on the heartthrob's lap. Although Kristen and Alicia didn't initially sit with Taylor, the duo later filled empty seats next to him, where the group sipped drinks and watched Sam wow La »
