Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson had reportedly grown apart in recent weeks. The stars recently ended their four-year on/off relationship and while the pair were seen as inseparable before becoming distant after the 'Bel Ami' actor returned to Los Angeles from New York earlier this month. An insider told People magazine: 'They again went from spending every second together, to spending more time apart at their separate houses. 'Kristen has been in a terrible mood, and it was obvious that things were not great with Rob.' It is said Robert's 27th birthday on May 13 was a hint at the downfall of their romance with the actress not present on his big day. The source added: ''It was very strange »
Of all the actors to have ever played a vegetarian vampire, a corrupt journalist, a circus veterinarian, and a Hufflepuff House Triwizard Champion, birthday boy Robert Pattinson has to be our absolute favorite. In honor of his big day, we decided to indulge in an RPattz-Stare Supercut made by Film.com. That fella sure does know how to serve up a stare, whether it be sultry and seductive, full of disgust or the physical manifestation of a bitter inner conflict. Hopefully he's able to lighten things up today and simply enjoy a birthday celebration.

Robert Pattinson Mission: Blacklist movie: Filming in August? Mission: Blacklist is not the upcoming fifth installment in the Mission: Impossible franchise starring Tom Cruise. For the time being, that’s concisely called Mission: Impossible 5. So, what’s Mission: Blacklist? Well, as every ardent Robert Pattinson fan will tell you, that’s a Pattinson movie project initially announced in early May 2012. Pattinson is attached to this Embankment Films-financed (or to-be-financed) production based on Eric Maddox and Davin Seay’s book Mission: Black List #1 - The Inside Story of the Search for Saddam Hussein - As Told by the Soldier Who Masterminded His Capture. The title of Maddox and Seay’s book says it all. But just in case, here’s the brief Mission: Blacklist synopsis found on the Embankment Films website: Unlike other Interrogators fresh out of training, Eric Maddox (Robert Pattinson) has a brilliant and beautiful mind. He has »

Deanna Durbin assesses her own movie stardom: Private individual vs. public persona [See previous post: "Deanna Durbin: Less-Than-Rosy Hollywood Memories."] While researching Deanna Durbin for this article, what impressed me the most — besides her beatific singing voice — was her clear-headed appraisal of her own popularity, and by extension, of fame in general. Much to her credit, she apparently never believed her own publicity. In fact, Durbin’s is probably the most incisive, bluntly honest assessment of the appeal of any celebrity who, like her, at an early age became associated with a public persona — from Betty Bronson and Jackie Coogan in the ’20s, Shirley Temple and Mickey Rooney in the ’30s, Margaret O’Brien and Jane Powell in the ’40s, and Debbie Reynolds and Sandra Dee in the ’50s to Macauley Culkin, Daniel Radcliffe, Zac Efron, Kristen Stewart, Miley Cyrus, and Taylor Lautner in the last two decades. As illustrations of the sort of publicity enveloping Deanna Durbin in her heyday, »

Pattinson fights Pearce in violent The Rover image In the last few years, British actor Robert Pattinson has courageously made a point of distancing himself (and his film career) from Edward Cullen, the Twilight movies' lovestruck, sparkling vampire that made the actor famous worldwide as one of the "angles" in the insufferable love triangle also featuring vampire-to-be Kristen Stewart and werewolf Taylor Lautner. Writer-director David Michôd's upcoming thriller The Rover, co-starring Guy Pearce, is Pattinson's latest tentative to create a character vastly different than the vampire Cullen. (Pictured above: Pattinson vs. Pearce in a bloody The Rover battle.) Currently filming in Australia, Michod's film is set in the near future, in the aftermath of a global financial catastrophe (at this stage, it remains unclear whether or not said catastrophe was the result of the recent highly controversial Cyprus bail-out). Pattinson plays a good-hearted Australian Outback gang member, while Pearce, »

Robert Pattinson's latest bid to shed his "Twilight" reputation is the dystopian drama "The Rover," and as you can see below, he's taking quite a beating from Guy Pearce to prove he's no longer Edward Cullen. In "The Rover," Pattinson plays Reynolds, a down-on-his-luck fellow driven to desperate lengths in the remote Australian Outback. Scoot McNairy, who turned heads with his performance in "Killing Them Softly," plays Pattison's brother, while Pearce is on board as a rather menacing character named Eric. Co-writer and director David Michôd told EW.com, "The basic story is really quite elemental… You've got a really dark, dangerous, murderous person in Guy's character, and in Rob's character you have a quite troubled and damaged, but beautiful and naïve, soul." Pattison's valiant attempts to shed his sparkly alter ego have included the misguided drama "Remember Me," sexy period piece "Bel Ami,"the romantic "Water for Elephants, »

Apart from his part in the indie film Little Ashes, Robert Pattinson's been graced with a lot of hunky roles. In Harry Potter And The Goblet Of Fire, his Cedric Diggory was one of the most popular kids at Hogwarts, and his role as Edward Cullen in The Twilight Saga was of course the dreamiest of the dreamy. But even his villainous roles - as in Bel Ami and David Cronenberg's Cosmopolis - allowed him to remain handsome as usual. David Michod and The Rover gang, however, are clearly dialing his looks way, way down for the Aussie flick. View slideshow: Robert Pattinson Today, photos of Pattinson on the set down under surfaced (see The Daily Mail, e.g.) which show Pattinson sporting a super busted set of chompers and a dingy costume. That sparkly smile of his muted, if anything. 'Cosmopolis' Photo credit: Alfama Films In the film, »

The 'Bel Ami' actress - who gave birth to her third child on July 15 - and her financier boyfriend, Arpad Busson, 49, named the their daughter Rosalind Arusha Arkadina Altalune Florence Thurman-Busson, and Uma says it was her 14-year-old daughter Maya who convinced her to go with the unusual moniker. Speaking about the baby - who is known as Luna - she told chat show host Jimmy Fallon: '[Maya] came up with the best excuse, [which] was that I probably wouldn't get to have any more children, so I just put every name I liked into [Luna's. '[Arpad and I] couldn't quite agree on the name. We call her Luna, so »
