Below is Forbes Profile of him:

Immortal vampire, small town doctor and value investor said to be a huge fan of getrichslowly.org, a penny-pinching personal finance blog that extols the extraordinary power of compound interest. It’s worked for Cullen: The fresh-faced 370-year-old undead monster amassed one of the largest fictional fortunes largely simply by banking a small amount of capital in 1670, and letting the interest accrue. Early investor in Wal-Mart, Google thanks to prescient advice from adoptive daughter Alice, who can see into the future. Featured in Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight novels and films.

Warning: Breaking Dawn Game Facebook Scam

Here’s an article and videos on a Breaking Dawn game scam on facebook, found at

http://nakedsecurity.sophos.com/2011/04/11/the-twilight-breaking-dawn-facebook-scam/

Facebook users are finding themselves tagged in their online friends’ photo albums, in an attack seemingly targeted at fans of the “Twilight” teen vampire romance movies.

Following an attack against photo albums using an image of a Playboy-style bunny girl, scammers are now pretending to link to a game promoting the upcoming movie “Twilight Breaking Dawn” starring heart throbs Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart as the starcrossed lovers Edward Cullen and Bella Swan.

As well as Facebook photo albums, users are also being tricked into “Liking” the scam links.

Twilight Breaking Dawn message

Play Twilight: Breaking Dawn
Be the first of your friends to play the awesome new Twilight game on Facebook!

If you click on such a link then you will be taken to a Facebook page which to all intents and purposes appears to be promoting an online game, being used to market Twilight Breaking Dawn.

Twilight Breaking Dawn on Facebook

But if you click on the button marked “Play Now” then you will be clickjacked into saying you “Like” the link, thus spreading the link virally to your Facebook friends.

If you’re running a protection against clickjacking, such as Firefox add-onNoScript, then you will be warned – but most people are probably unaware that the page has secretly claimed that they like the game, even though no game has yet been played!

NoScript warning of clickjacking

The scam doesn’t end there, however, as that would simply spread the link without earning any money for the ne’er-do-wells behind it.

Users are then presented with a dialog, asking them to grant permission for a third party application to access their Facebook account, and post messages, updates and photos to their wall.

Rogue app requests permission

Of course, if you’re a fan of “Twilight” you will quite possibly grant permission without thinking. The only problem being that this isn’t a legitimate application request, but being done by a rogue app which wants to make money out of your devotion to the works of Stephenie Meyer’s series of novels.

Predictably, with the ability to now post to your Facebook account, the scammers now present the final piece of the jigsaw: an online survey which earns them affiliate commission for each person who completes the questionnaire.

Survey scam

You will note that the survey deliberately presents itself in a convincing Facebook style, which may trick some users into believing that it is legitimate.

It seems that fans of Twilight are only too easy pickings for Facebook scammers, judging by the large number of reports from affected Facebook users we are seeing today.

If you’ve been affected by this scam, you should clean up your account before any further damage is done.

I’ve made a YouTube video where I show you how to clean-up your Facebook account if you were hit by this, or similar scams on Facebook:

Ashley Greene: I Used to Be a Tomboy

Here’s an older article on Ashley Greene, found at

Ashley Greene InStyle Hair

She may be known for her pretty red carpet dresses and girly on-screen persona, but growing up, Ashley Greene says she was “definitely” a tomboy. “I was always trying to be like my older brother,” she admits in the latest issue of InStyle Hair. But as she grew up, Greene became more aware of femininity. “I got really self-conscious because I had older friends. I thought they were prettier, and they were going through all these life experiences before I was.” So Greene’s mom enrolled her in modeling classes, aimed at giving her confidence a boost. “[They] helped a lot,” she says. Now, the 24-year-old is a total glamour girl — even starring in ads for Mark cosmetics — but she hasn’t lost her tomboy roots. “I love having my hair and makeup done, but I’m really just a 15-minute girl, throwing everything on with no fuss,” she shares. Transforming into her Twilightcharacter, Alice Cullen, however, requires two hours in the stylist’s chair. “My hair is pretty thick, and we wrap it and put it under a wig,” she explains. “To get it to fit so I don’t look like I have an alien head is a talent in itself.” Since the Twilight series began in 2008, Greene says her wig has gone through three major changes. “The newest is a classic Audrey Hepburn cut,” she shares. Perhaps we’ll see it in Breaking Dawn later this year? For more on Greene’s style evolution, pick up the latest issue of InStyle Hair, on newsstands April 8. Kate Hogan

Robert Pattinson Interview with Collider on Water for Elephants

Here’s an interview with Robert Pattinson, found at

http://collider.com/robert-pattinson-interview-water-for-elephants/83885/

water-for-elephants-robert-pattinson-slice

The drama Water for Elephants, based on the acclaimed best-selling novel of the same name and opening in theaters on April 22nd, tells the story of a veterinary student, named Jacob Jankowski (Robert Pattinson), whose entire life changes when his parents die in an accident and he ends up jumping a random train that happens to belong to the Benzini Brothers Most Spectacular Show on Earth. Once he is discovered, he is put to work with the animals, where he meets the circus’ shining star, Marlena (Reese Witherspoon), and her charismatic husband August (Christoph Waltz), the often violent and abusive owner. This magical world serves as the backdrop for an epic tale of forbidden love, between two individuals hoping for a second chance at happiness.

At the film’s press day, actor Robert Pattinson talked about the impression the novel made on him, his affinity for the time period of the 1930s, working alongside an elephant as a co-star, and how he personally identified with his character’s journey. Check out what he had to say after the jump:

Robert_Pattinson_Water_For_Elephants_imageQuestion: What was the impression you got from reading the book that made you want to do a film adaptation?

ROBERT PATTINSON: I think I’ve just always had a bit of an affinity for that era. I always wanted to do a movie around that time. And, I think it was just very solid, how she (author Sara Gruen) created the world there. I just wanted to be a part of it.

How did you approach becoming a person from another time?

PATTINSON: There was a comprehensive creation of the world. I’ve never worked on anything so detailed. There was an embankment with a train track on the top. All the trailers were on one side, and then the circus world was on the other. Once you walked over the tracks, there would be a camera, but that was the only thing from the 21st Century. You could stand on the tracks and look over at everything, and you were in the ‘30s. We were out in the middle of the desert in Fillmore, and there was nothing else around. There was an orchard. We were in the ‘30s. Jack Fisk, the production designer, used authentic pegs and the ropes. Every single thing which built the world was all totally real. And, authentic period underpants do actually help, as well. I actually wore them every single day. Jacqueline West, the costume designer, was unbelievable. Almost everything was real. Every pair of jeans were all from the ‘20s and ‘30s. It was crazy.

What do you love so much, about that time period?

PATTINSON: There’s a wildness to it. I think that’s why I like that period. After that, it’s just white picket fences. It just gets progressively more boring. But, it’s the end of the Wild West. It’s why kids still want to be cowboys, even in England.

What was it like to work with Tai, the elephant, especially in the beginning?

PATTINSON: I wasn’t scared at all. There was only one moment, when we first saw the whole herd together and Gary, Tai’s trainer said, “Sit,” literally as if he were talking to a dog, and it sat down in exactly the same way a dog would. Just seeing that, it’s totally incomprehensible. I basically decided to do the movie, at that point. I hadn’t read the script or anything. It’s very powerful to think that you can have a relationship with these huge beasts.

Robert_Pattinson_Water_For_Elephants_imageIt’s been said that the elephant took quite a liking to you. How does an elephant flirt?

PATTINSON: I don’t know who started that. I’ve been asked about it all day. It sounds really disturbing. I wasn’t flirting with the elephant. I think I had a relationship with the elephant, but it was based purely on candy. I strategically placed mints. I’d suck a peppermint for a bit, and then stick it onto my body, under my armpits and covering my entire chest, and not tell anyone. So, every single time, the elephant would be constantly sniffing me and I’d be like, “I don’t know, she just really likes me. It’s crazy!” But, I think she was just sniffing around for a treat.

In the film, your character Jacob lies about being a vet to get a job in the circus. Have you ever lied to get an acting job?

PATTINSON: Oh, yeah, all the time. I don’t know if there’s the same thing in America, but there’s a thing called the Spotlight Form in England, where you have all your talents and accents and everything. You just tick these boxes, saying what you’re capable of, as an actor. I just tick everything. I can do any accent in the world. I can literally do any technical skill. I think it’s still like that. I ticked that I can do Lithuanian accents, fluently.

What was it like to do the kissing scenes with Reese Witherspoon, who is so much smaller than you are?

PATTINSON: It’s really easy for me. I’ve got quite bad posture and I’ve got a big, heavy head, so it just slumps down and she was in the right spot, naturally.

Robert_Pattinson_Water_For_Elephants_image

How was it to do the scenes where you have to shovel the animal poop?

PATTINSON: I don’t mind working with poop, at all. I have a natural propensity to work on big piles of poop. I’m very familiar with it. I don’t know why I wasn’t grossed out by it, at all. Because everything felt so authentic all the time, you just accept it, as part of the world. The scene where we were in that train car, there were like 10 billion flies. On any other movie, I think I’d be like, “Let’s just do one take!” But, I was perfectly happy to make a little mound and sit there and eat my lunch.

Did you enjoy getting to shoot some of the film in Tennessee?

PATTINSON: There was an amazing moonshine day. It was one of the best days of the shoot. Drinking moonshine in 120 degrees, half of the crew was passed out, after one sip. It was amazing!

Was there anything about Jacob Jankowski’s journey in the film that you, personally, could relate to?

PATTINSON: I don’t know. I guess I had an experience, when I did a Harry Potter film, years ago, and I was just starting to realize that I wanted to be an actor, even though I had already finished three movies, by that point. I remember being in Tokyo and looking out the window and seeing the Tokyo skyline. It made me reflect on what had happened in my life, and I was in awe of what road I had taken, by accident. In terms of being mesmerized by a girl, like he is, I guess that happens.

Taylor Lautner’s #4 Favorite MTV Moment

Here’s an article on Taylor Lautner, found at

http://hollywoodcrush.mtv.com/2011/04/08/mtv-first-taylor-lautner-countdown-no-4/

‘MTV First: Taylor Lautner’ Countdown: It’s All About The Abs!

We’re still counting down the days until the trailer premiere for “Abduction“—also known as the day that Taylor Lautner will sit down for an exclusive interview, participate in a Q&A session featuring fan submissions and present our first look at his action thriller. And in honor of his impending arrival, we’ve been having inappropriate dreams about hot shirtless werewolves every single night counting down our top five favorite Taylor MTV moments from years gone by. And here it is: Favorite Moment No. 4!

In this video, MTV News caught up with Taylor on the red carpet at the “New Moon” premiere, where we had a chance to chat with him about some of the most important, pivotal scenes in this installment of the “Twilight” saga. And by “pivotal” we mean “shirtless.”

“I think they might start crying,” Taylor replied, when asked how fans might react to the sight of his topless bod on-screen. Why? Because (get this) he was afraid that they’d think he looked “bad.” (Um, what? Does this kid not own a mirror?)

But really, we love Taylor’s humility—particularly when he claimed that co-star Robert Pattinsonwas just as hot and muscly as him. [Ed note: No. Just…no.]

“I don’t know, Rob, he’s getting some muscle. Some good competition,” Taylor admitted. “He definitely doesn’t need any pointers at all.”

Personally, and despite a few Team Edward die-hards on staff, we still think there’s kinda no question as to which leading man has the better bod. But if Taylor thinks there’s some doubt, he’s welcome to use his upcoming visit to stage a Who Looks Better Shirtless contest! Flexing, posing, and freestyle dancing in leather pants will be required.

Mini Biography

Though most famous for her role as Bella Swan in the Twilight saga, Kristen Stewart has been a working actor since her early years in Los Angeles, California. Her parents, John Stewart and Jules Mann-Stewart, both work in film and television. Her mother is Australian. The family includes three boys, her older brother Cameron Stewart, and two adopted brothers Dana and Taylor.

After a talent scout caught her grade school performance in a Christmas play at the age of eight, she appeared on television in a few small roles. Her first significant role came when she was cast as Sam Jennings in The Safety of Objects (2001). Soon after that, she starred alongside Jodie Foster in the hit drama, Panic Room (2002) and was nominated for a Young Artist Award.

Praised for her Panic Room performance, she went on to join the cast of Cold Creek Manor (2003) as the daughter of Dennis Quaid and Sharon Stone. Though the film did not do well at the box office, she received another nomination for a Young Artist Award. After appearing in a handful of movies and a Showtime movie called Speak (2004), Stewart was cast in the role of a teenage singer living in a commune in Sean Penn‘s Into the Wild (2007), a critically acclaimed biopic. A third Young Artist Award nomination resulted in a win for this role. She also appeared in Mary Stuart Masterson‘s The Cake Eaters (2007) that same year.

Just 18, Stewart took on the starring role in Twilight (2008/I) opposite Robert Pattinson who plays the vampire lead, Edward Cullen. Based on a series of the same name written by Stephenie Meyer, the novel already had a huge following and the film opened to fans anxious to see the vampire romance brought to life. Awarded the MTV Movie Award for Best Female Performance, Stewart’s turn as Bella continued in the sequelsNew Moon (2009) and Eclipse (2010/I). The final installments of the series start filming in late 2010.

Rocketed into stardom with the Twilight films, Stewart has continually shrunk from the spotlight. She’s also taken on a number of indie projects such as Adventureland (2009) (filmed prior to the Twilight series) and Welcome to the Rileys (2010). And she took on the daunting task of playing rocker Joan Jett in Floria Sigismondi‘s The Runaways (2010) alongside Dakota Fanning. Though most critics heaped praised on Fanning for her poignant performance as Cherie Currie, Stewart also received praise for her acting and musical performances.

One of Stewart’s next big projects is the upcoming film adaptation of the classic novel by Jack KerouacOn the Road (2011), in which she’ll star as Marylou. Shooting begins in the summer of 2010.

Stewart continues to live in Los Angeles, California.

Very private about her personal life. In 2010, many main stream media outlets began referring to her relationship with Twilight (2008/I) co-star,Robert Pattinson, as matter of fact rather than rumored.

Personal Quotes

On working on the film Panic Room (2002) with such a big name star as Jodie Foster: “When I got “Panic Room”, I’m like, ‘Oh my God that’s huge! It’s bigger than huge’. I was kind of freaked out at first”.

(about her love for acting) I love it because I love to tell stories. I like being in movies that have a great story. I’m not so interested in being a Hollywood star. It’s a job, you know. When you wake up at six in the morning every day for a week, it feels like hard work.

I don’t want to make movies for kids, and I don’t want to make movies for adults either.

Acting is such a personal thing, which is weird because at the same time it’s not. It’s for the consumption of other people. But in terms of creative outlets and expressing yourself, it’s just the most extreme version of that that I’ve ever found. It’s like running, it’s exertion. When you reach that point where you can’t go anymore and you stop and you take a breath, it’s that same sort of clearing of the mind.

A lot of actors think that what we do is so important, like we’re saving people’s lives or something.

All I try to do in the press is be honest about something that I really care about.

I’ve always had an aversion to looking sexy, but I’ve grown out of it.

I start everything from the same place, with that sense of responsibility. On a bigger movie, you have to be aware that you can only control your aspect of the film. It’s nice to be on a smaller movie because you’re working with your friends and you feel so close-knit. It’s your movie and you can do anything you want, and nobody’s going to have anything to say. With a bigger movie, it concerns so many people. It’s so much more of a process. But, in terms of what I do personally, it has to be the same, or else I’m just on some big movie, being a liar, and I can’t do that.

Really, I’m incredibly disjointed and not candid. Just in general, my thoughts tend to come out in little spurts that don’t necessarily connect. If you hang around long enough, you can find the linear path. But it will take a second. That is why these interviews never go well for me.

About having an aha moment when it came to pursuing an acting career: I have the “Aha” moments progressively — they’re like milestones and they hit you. I think my first “Aha!” moment was when I did this (TV) movie called “Speak.” I was just rolling with it, and ended up kind of really losing myself in it, so that I felt like I was a different person at the end. That was a big moment.

You should have the opportunity to be more than one person with different people – because you have that within you. It’s not like you’re faking it. If everyone knows you so well and can always get a hold of you, then you’re stuck to this thing that people think you are. You should have the opportunity to reinvent yourself. Because you do. Naturally.

On whether she wants to develop her skills as a writer: I do want to work on writing, because writing’s a skill. Writing is something that you can train yourself to know better. To know yourself better. And it’s intimidating as hell. I mean, I definitely will always do what I’ve been doing. I’ve also started taking a lot of pictures, and they help the writing. The pictures help the writing. I mean, I want to make books. I want to take pictures and then write all over the pictures. And then I don’t have to say a complete story, because I have the picture, and I have just a word.

About Bella in New Moon: Well, she loses what basically gives her the drive to do anything in her whole life. She loses the man she’s in love with, but she also loses her entire life plan, and she’s so young to have to be forced into a decision like that. It’s just a glorified, elaborate version of the worst breakup you’ve ever been through. All of a sudden you question everything. All of a sudden you know nothing and you’re dropped in the middle of a freezing cold ocean. Oddly, we have a character that’s warm enough and bright enough to bring her out of that, and it’s truly gut-ripping. Because as perfect as Jacob is for her, she holds on to an ideal, the ultimate fiery love that she has for Edward even though it’s not comfortable, it’s not practical and it’s not a good idea.

This weird thing happens when you’re in a movie that has some level of success. People start offering you all kinds of things, and they just expect you to do them because they’ll be good for your career. It’s not about the project’s integrity or anything like that. It’s about raising your profile and all that crap.

I was just in Botswana in Africa. I wanted to learn something about the world. I just feel really ignorant whenever I leave the country. I don’t know a lot of stuff, and I really want to. I figure that traveling is a good way to start if you want knowledge. Like, if you don’t know something about a country, then go and check it out. That’s what I did.

On how her life has changed since Twilight: My life hasn’t changed. Most circumstances I find myself in are different than they were a year ago, but I myself haven’t changed…however a normal 18-year-old girl would change in a year. But it makes things so much easier. I would do it for free every day [even] if nobody saw it. I cannot describe how good it feels to actually have something that is truly into your heart and soul actually affecting people. And that’s amazing. So that’s the biggest change.

On whether she wants to continue making movies or go to college: I absolutely have no foresight. I used to think I had a lot when I was younger. I worked really hard in school to give myself options, and I’ve literally taken those options and thrown them down the toilet. Purposely – not to make that sound totally negative. It’s what I want. I want to keep doing what I’m doing. It’s funny, people ask me all the time: ‘What do you do for fun? What do you do when you’re not acting?’ It’s a strange thing, acting. It’s a business, it’s a job, everything like that. All it is, is self-reflection. You just never stop caring about people and I’ve never stopped doing that, so I’m sure it’ll seep into other areas of my life. I want to write. I’m not going to school because I can’t take the structure of it, but I’m not going to stop learning.

Usually I come in and sit down at roundtables in America and they look at me like ‘what is wrong with you?’ Just because I don’t fit…nobody fits into the frame that typical Hollywood young actresses do, but they try to. They try to be this thing. Try to memorize answers and make everybody happy. That’s so horrifying and scary to me. So when you’re not that, you get criticized for it. You get criticized for being honest and criticized for being nervous. So that’s kind of annoying. I do a whole day of press and then I get calls from publicity people that are like, ‘you might want to be a little bit more bubbly’. And I’m like, ‘no’. People get very upset in the States. It’s weird. Fans of the book especially. They don’t understand me. Which is fine. I guess it doesn’t really matter who I am, it just matters that they like the movie.

On doing interviews: Self-evaluation is not my strong point, and you’re constantly asked to critique yourself. You just spent three months on a set and your whole life is wrapped up in that – and then it’s like, “Okay, define that right now in five seconds.” I can’t do that. I used to get so nervous that I would become a completely different person – and then they would think that was me. So I’ve tried to calm down, but no one’s ever going to write, “Oh, she’s actually just a pretty f—in’ average chick who really loves what she does.” That’s not gonna happen.

On how fame changed her life: There’s nothing you can do about it, to be honest. I don’t leave my hotel room — literally, I don’t. I don’t talk to anybody about my personal life, and maybe that perpetuates it, too. But it’s really important to own what you own and keep it to yourself. That said, the only way for me not to have somebody know where I went the night before is if I didn’t go out at all. I’m trading. It depends on what mood I’m in. Some nights, I think, ‘You know what? I don’t care. I’m going to do what I want to do.’ Then the next day I think, ‘Ugh. Now everyone thinks I’m going out to get the attention.’ and I’m like, ‘No, actually, for a second, thought that maybe I could be like a normal person.’

Speech after winning an Orange Bafta (2010): Wow. Thank you. I guess first I have to thank all the fans of Twilight for proving again and again to be THE most devoted and attentive fans ever. Considering this is voted, credit is due to them so thank you. To the other actors nominated, I am so blown away by you that I can’t even describe it. To be voted among you is just overwhelming. And I’d like to say hi to my family.

People always ask me if Im dating Robert [Pattinson]. It’s beyond annoying. What I say is, that, why would I want anything that’s private to become entertainment for other people?

My family are amazing. I had like, the perfect upbringing. It sucks for people like Lindsey [Lohan], but it’s not her fault she’s so off the rails.

I’m totally preoccupied with cooking. And now I’m obsessed with the Food Network. I like Paula Deen because she’s hilarious,
