“Breaking Dawn” Stars' 2011 Comic-Con Panel

Definitely one of the highlights of the 2011 San Diego Comic-Con, the stars of “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1” showed up for a press conference earlier today (July 21).

Big names in the house at the Hilton Bayfront Hotel included Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, Ashley Greene, Taylor Lautner, Nikki Reed, and Elizabeth Reaser.

During their conversations, cast members spoke about the past, present and future, with the stars saying that they believe that Stephenie Meyer is done writing as far as the series is concerned.

Picking their favorites, Taylor dished during the much-hyped panel discussion, "The third book I loved, but this movie is my favorite. In this movie, you're able to see all the characters in a different light... it was a challenge, but we had a lot of fun and this one is definitely my favorite movie by far."

Not in agreement when it comes to tastes, Miss Stewart said that her favorite is still the first movie, but "New Moon" is her favorite book.

One of the cutest moments occurred when a little girl asked Rob, "Did you like having a baby with Bella?" The British hunk immediately blushed before proceeding forth with the Q & A session.

Earlier in the day, Nikki and Ashley were joined by Boo Boo Stewart and Julia Jones for a very special Fan Wake-Up Call for the 1000+ folks who camped out to catch a sneak preview of “Breaking Dawn Part I.”

One lucky fan tweeted, "So we got a little treat! Nikki Reed, Ashley Greene and Booboo Stewart came to visit us!” while another wrote, "Nikki Reed and Ashley Greene are the nicest!”

Selena Gomez Beautifully Covers ‘ELLE’ Mexico

Selena Gomez looks like she’s ready for fall (instead of the sweltering end of summer heat) for the cover of ELLE Mexico’s August issue. The recent wedding crasher sports a deep purple long-sleeve outfit, and what appears to be a gold curtain tassel highlighting the “Love You Like A Love Song” songstress’ tiny waist. While the pop star is usually a modern dresser, the 18-year-old channeled a 1970s vibe with her giant floppy hat in this shoot. Tell us what you think of latest look from Justin Bieber’s karaoke partner.

Behind The Scenes Of Beyonce’s ‘4′ Photo Shoot In Paris

When Beyoncé visited Paris back in April, a Harper’s Bazaar spread wasn’t the only thing the VMA nominee was shooting. The complex diva was also using the City Of Lights as a backdrop to her 4 album artwork. Below, check out exclusive behind the scenes footage from Bey’s rooftop photo shoot (on Super 8 film!), as well as interior package shots and a never-before-seen image from the “Run The World (Girls)” singer’s LP pictorial.

Does the Super 8 look remind anyone else of the pop star’s “Why Don’t You Love Me?” music video?

If you’re planning a trip to Paris and want the “Beyoncé Experience”, the photo shoot took place on the roof of Hotel Le Meurice near the Tuileries Garden. Just don’t expect your pics to come out looking like the former Destiny’s Child — unless you also happen to team up with Parisian photographer Greg Gex and happen to have access to shoes designed by Alexander McQueen.

Lily Collins as Snow White

EW got a first look at the 22-year-old actress who’ll be starring in Relativity Media’s yet-to-be-titled Snow White film, set to be released March 16.

“She’s very much that fairy tale princess we’ve all read about in books. She’s been modernized in a way that she becomes a fighter in the end,” Lily told the magazine about her character.

“I keep saying to everyone I feel like I’m walking into a snow globe, a fairy tale, every single day. It’s so epic. I was part of a costume ball today, so you can only imagine the outfits,” she added.

The Social Network’s Armie Hammer is set to play the Prince, while Julia Roberts will take on the role of the Evil Queen.

Kristen Stewart will also be playing Snow White in a separate project titled Snow White and the Huntsman.

Sexy Kellan Lutz was spotted at the 2011 San Diego Comic-Con [PHOTOS]

Twilight hunk Kellan Lutz was spotted at the 2011 San Diego Comic-Con yesterday (July 21) with what looks like two cellphones in his jeans pocket!

Lutz returned to the annual comic convention this year along with several of his cast-mates to promote The Twilght Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1.

Good news for Twilight fans if a spinoff or something like that every happens to the series, Kellan Lutz and Ashley Greene verbally committed to future Twilight series opportunities if they ever come up.

When asked if they’d be willing to shoot more films as their characters in Twilight, both Ashley, 24, and Kellan, 26, responded immediately. “Yeah, of course,” Kellan told MTV.

Ashley agreed, saying, “We said it was great to be a part of and it was great to finish, but I think, yeah, if there was another one, we’d do it. The one thing I’m sad about, even though I know I’ll hang out with everyone, is that we’re putting Alice Cullen up in the bookshelf. So it’s a little sad not to be able to play that character anymore when you’ve been doing it for so long.”

Do you think the series should be over and done with, or would you like to see spin-off features? Share you thought in the comments below, and check out what Kellan Lutz has in his pants in the gallery!

'John Carter' trailer: Taylor Kitsch, shirtless

"Taylor Kitsch is a man of few words and many pecs. At least that was my takeaway from the new trailer for John Carter, the first live action movie from Andrew Stanton (Wall-E, Finding Nemo). The teaser for the outer-space epic keeps much of the movie’s content close to its chest, only imparting a few details with some well-placed mood music courtesy of Peter Gabriel by way of Arcade Fire."
In Carter, Kitsch plays the titular Civil War veteran. While the denizens of Earth think he died in the conflict, he is actually transplanted to Mars. There he finds an otherworldly damsel (X-Men Origins: Wolverine‘s Lynn Collins), who is indeed in distress. So bring on the chest-baring body armor and the unreasonably high leaping skills! In a change of pace from your average alien-fightin’ flick, the trailer’s somber, chilling music provides a nice counterpoint to the many action sequences shown.

The movie, co-written by Stanton and Michael Chabon, boasts an all-star cast that includes Mark Strong, Bryan Cranston, Ciarán Hinds, Willem Dafoe, and Dominic West."

TV's 6 Most Wanted Women

The Hollywood Reporter united Sarah Michelle Gellar, Jennifer Morrison, Britt Robertson, Yvonne Strahovski, Maggie Q and Anna Torv for a no-holds-barred conversation and photoshoot.


The actress stars in the CW's upcoming suspense thriller Ringer. Of the buzz surrounding the show, Gellar says: "I definitely feel pressure. It's not outside pressure; it's pressure because the fans have been so loyal, you want to … make them happy. There's definitely something to be said for being the quiet show that gets to build on its own merit, as opposed to an expectation that already exists."

Maggie Q

The star of CW's Nikita is a pro at Comic-Con. Her advice to her fellow THR roundtable panelists who've never been? "This year, you'll say, 'It's going to be this'; 'It's going to be that.' Next year when you come back, it's going to be great. People who come are already going to be fans of the show. So you're going to be answering specific questions about the show, which is much more fun than trying to be like, 'It's not going to suck, I promise.'"

Anna Torv

Torv, who co-stars on Fox's Fringe, recalls her first Comic-Con. "I went and had a look around the first year that I went down there. The show wasn't on the air yet and everybody was at our panel to hear J.J. [Abrams] speak, so I was quite fine to go and have a look. And then, you know, it changes bit by bit. It's one of the few opportunities that you actually get to sit and talk to people who watch your show and have an interaction with them."

Jennifer Morrison
The former House co-star will play the daughter of Snow White and Prince Charming in ABC's fairy tale drama Once Upon a Time. "As an actress, it's nice to look for something different. It was wonderful playing Cameron on House for all of those years -- amazing writing and an incredible cast. I have no complaints, but it was also exciting to be let free and to play new characters and try something new. And part of the appeal of Once Upon a Time for me was that it was totally character-driven. It wasn't procedural and, you know, I've been saying medical terms for a long time."

Yvonne Strahovski

Strahovski, who co-stars on NBC's Chuck, says she can relate to the physicality of her character. "I've always been a bit of a tomboy, so I think all of the action and stunts have always been a part of me. I love doing that stuff, and now my character has sort of evolved from being very comfortable in the spy world but not very comfortable with being a normal person with family and a boyfriend and stuff. She's evolved into a more natural human being and more easygoing in social situations. It's nice to be bringing that into it … to be more normal on the show but still being the spy."

Britt Robertson

Robertson, who stars in the CW's new supernatural series The Secret Circle, says she appreciates the buzz that comes with the show. "We're working with Kevin Williamson, who did The Vampire Diaries. It has a sort of cult following, and I think because of that, and since we are sort of its sister show, people are excited for The Secret Circle. I guess we're just hoping that we don't let people down."
