The Twilight franchise is like junk food for my head. It’s like looking at a big, sugary donut and you crave it, so you eat it, but afterwards you feel a bit guilty and sick and think you really shouldn’t eat one again any time soon. But then of course you do.
The films in particular are a total sugar-crash for my mind. They seem like a really good idea at first, but by the time I’m halfway through I’m sort of waiting for it to end and feeling sort of silly for getting so excited over scenes of saccharine teenage love in the first place.
But I went to see Eclipse last night with about 500 other loons who thought it was worth going to see in the middle of the night and actually really enjoyed it and think I probably could watch it again without asking myself “why!?” afterwards.

Ok, am I the only one stupidly excited about the New Moon trailer? I mean, the film will be awful, just like Twilight was, but as I’m a bona fide loony fan of the books, Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart, I still can’t wait to see it.
First of all, let me point out once again why I love Kristen.
Awkward but totally gorgeous and not afraid to opt for comfort on the red carpet. I like that she does her own thing.
The film managed to scoop loads of awards, with both Kristen and Rob getting best male and female actor and they also got one for best screen kiss which they pretended to reenact:
Sigh. Lucky, lucky girl.
The devastatingly gorgeous Rob Pattinson has revealed that he was bullied at school. The heart-throb actor, who plays vampire Edward Cullen in the Twilight films, said he still has a pair of shoes that are missing their laces from when school bullies stole them. He also revealed he wasn’t a very a good student and was expelled at the age of 12.
I can totally imagine Rob being the weird kid at school. In fact I know someone who knew him as a teenager and she does say he was quite strange. But it makes me fancy him even more! Good looking, unconventional and a little bit naughty is extremely sexy in my books.
