“Women (and men) are not in love with me but with the picture of me on the screen. I am merely the canvas on which women (and men) paint their dreams.” ~ Rudolph Valentino
And here's ANOTHER cool video from Empire Magazine!
Alot of Twilight snobs get angry because you Twilight actors always take all the big, "people-voted" awards home - they don't feel you deserve it, I guess. Based on the huge pile of evidence, you SO F*#!*** DESERVE EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THEM!
And while I really don't want to single out any "one" person because I think you've all done SUCH a wonderful job - I don't think there is a character in the mix that doesn't seem to be just about as cool as they can possibly be in the movies...
Sarah Clarke ~ Renée - Bella's kooky Mom (who reminds me an awful lot of me - LoL!
Update 5/20/12 - I'm going to insert this article about how the REAL, indigenous Quileute American-Indian Tribe feels about how their culture has been portrayed in Twilight; because I really do NOT think you Twihards "get" this. (And I know you're coming in here - this is one of my most popular pages, ha!)
As BLOOD is to a Vampire - So this beautiful, UNIQUE culture and place would be for JACOB and his family! It's ONE thing to take some obscure fable and twist it into a story, but it is ENTIRELY ANOTHER to take a real Human culture's CREATION "Oral History" (that's what they are called) and treat it with as much disrespect as the writer of Twilight has.
It is a creation story NO LESS SIGNIFICANT to this World than our MUCH younger Judo-Christian story. Stephenie Meyer COULD have taken the time to write it into her story in a MUCH more responsible way - and she SHOULD HAVE.
WHY is this important? I live near reservations now and I grew up around them in the Midwest as a child. I HAD native friends who were/are very dear to me, and I KNOW how much this would mean to them - and OBVIOUSLY, the Quileute Tribe wouldn't have went out of their way to host a site like this if at least some of them didn't have strong feelings about this subject.
This isn't how you write a saga or a beautiful fairytale, Children... You KNOW this.
Michael Welch ~ Mike Newton - Another one of Bella's highschool friends and classic "jock". You know, I can totally identify with Bella on not really getting into Mike despite his best efforts. I've never really been into jocks, so it makes perfect sense to me. But I came across a blog post one time done by a guy whose wife had dragged him along to Twilight. And the poor guy had a good point... "I'm more like Mike, why isn't MIKE one of the guys Bella is considering to spend eternal bliss with?" It was kind of funny... If I ever find the article again, I'll add it here.
Anna Kendrick ~ Jessica - Thanks for being the Twilight girl that we all love to hate. Every highschool had at least one girl like this - in Buffy the Vampire Slayer, it was Cordelia - no doubt, one of my FAVORITE Buffy characters. They can say anything and get "right to it". One of my favorite Twilight scenes is the graduation speech in Eclipse. It was PERFECT!
And you know, I ALMOST forgot someone who was OBVIOUSLY integral to the success of the original Twilight movie - maybe we all needed her to stay on board throughout the entire franchise. Thank you GOBS & GOBS & WHOLE BUNCHES & GOBS to Catherine Hardwicke, Director of the original Twilight movie, who obviously had a finger on the pulse of "what was so special" about TWILIGHT!
YEAH, go ahead and add your own praises, if you want to..!
