Kristen Stewart got props from two of her "Twilight" castmates this week, who defended her over her affair with director Rupert Sanders while dating their other castmate Robert Pattinson earlier this year.
"Well, I just think that media frenzies like that," said Dakota Fanning, for the December issue of InStyle U.K. "Everyone thinks they have the right to, you know, publicize the struggles and sadness and heartbreak and all that. It's like, 'Why do you think you think you are the authority to judge people's experiences?'"
Yeah! Who the hell are you people in the media who think you can just keep taking advantage of Kristen Stewart's love life and heartbreak by writing about it every day just to get traffic on your website, especially you grown men in your 40s who seemingly have nothing better to do with your lives then live gratuitously through the lives of people better looking and more talented than you?
Uh ... anyway, Taylor Lautner was a bit more diplomatic.
"To be honest, I've never been involved in any of those situations, so I don't know (if trust can be regained)," Lautner told the December issue of Cosmopolitan when the topic of cheating not so subtly came up. "It would be just a guess and a shot in the dark, and I don't want to give that if I haven't even been there myself."
In any case, he had nothing but praise when asked directly about his costar.
"Kristen is fantastic at everything she does. I'm
We all are, Taylor. We all are.
LINDSAY LOHAN COULD BE IN BIG TROUBLE ... BUT PROBABLY NOT: Lindsay Lohan will be charged this week with of lying to police when she claimed she was not behind the wheel of her Porsche when it crashed into a big rig on the Pacific Coast Highway in June, according to TMZ.
Really? That's impossible. I find that hard to believe.
Lindsay Lohan still works enough to afford a Porsche?
Lohan told police her assistant was driving when the Porsche collided with the 18-wheeler. But multiple witnesses said Lohan was behind the wheel and they all, like, totally ganged up on her and snitched or something.
Law enforcement sources supposedly told TMZ the case will be filed as a misdemeanor by the Santa Monica City Attorney, possibly this week. Which doesn't sound like a big deal, until one factors in the fact that Lohan is currently on probation for stealing jewelry ... after her DUI and another car crash, but before she was accused of stealing stuff from a private party and running her car into that other guy.
Where have you gone, Amanda Bynes, a nation turns its lonely eyes to you.
Anyway, judges tend to not like it when people on probation crash into big trucks and lie to police about it.
Then again, Lohan could be caught setting fire to the judge's robes and probably get away with it.
TMZ also said its police sources say officers found prescription pills in her purse after the crash. Witnesses told TMZ pills were also scattered in the car's trunk. But to be fair, sometime Tic Tacs melt a little bit and can re-form looking like prescription drugs.
Those same sources said authorities were prepared to charge her for illegal drug possession as well, but Lohan's lawyer produced a doctor's note ... for the drugs, not her driving.
HAN SOLO MAY FLY AGAIN: This will likely be bigger news to "Star Wars" geeks than any dumb old presidential election.
According to Entertainment Weekly, Harrison Ford is open to bringing Han Solo back to life on the silver screen in 2015.
"Harrison is open to the idea of doing the movie and he's upbeat about it, all three of them are," , a source close to the just-announced "Star Wars" sequel told the magazine, referring to Ford, Mark Hamill, and Carrie Fisher, the trio that starred in George Lucas's first three Star Wars films.
As for Hamill, he's now an in-demand voice actor; and Fisher used a gift for acerbic memoir to deliver "Postcards from the Edge" and "Wishful Drinking."
Unlike his co-stars, Ford, who was 35 when the Star Wars franchise was launched, became a Hollywood megastar. But for some reason Ford, now 70, hasn't disguised his disdain for Solo. "As a character he was not so interesting to me," the frosty Ford explained in an ABC interview in 2010.
Stop it ... (sniff). You STOP IT HAN SOLO!
Solo was actually supposed to be killed off in early outlines for "Episode VI: Return of the Jedi," a decision that would have upset many, many fans and ewoks. As Ford told ABC in the same interview: "I thought he should have died in the last one to give it some bottom ... George didn't think there was any future in dead Han toys."
Ha Ha Ha (I laugh nervously, clutching a Han Solo action figure in each hand).
No, really. I am.
Disney, which acquired Lucasfilm in a $4.05 billion deal, sees plenty of retail future with the "Star Wars" franchise, and the media giant will certainly be offering a stellar payday to coax Ford back to the series.
Entertainment Weekly also pointed out that Ford might be drawn back by changes at Lucasfilm, where the respected Kathleen Kennedy is taking over as company president and as executive producer of the "Star Wars" series, while Lucas will take on a consultant role, leaving the director's chair for someone else.
In other words, having aliens in the last Indiana Jones movie was stupid.
A source told EW that Ford won't engage in serious contract talks until there's a script and director in place.
Still, Ford signaling any interest has to warm the hearts of wannabe Jedi everywhere.
CAMERON DIAZ WANTS HERSELF A VAMPIRE BOY: The whole Robert Pattinson-Kristen Stewart thing doesn't seem to faze Cameron Diaz.
The 40-year-old was allegedly all over Pattinson on Oct. 27 at the L.A. County Museum of Art's Art + Film Gala, according to Us magazine.
I'd make a "Mrs. Robinson" joke here, but anyone interested in this story probably wouldn't get it.
"She was pretty obvious," says one of three witnesses who watched Diaz come on to the 26-year-old "Twilight" star. "Cam was seated next to Rob at dinner. She was touching his arm, doing her big Cameron laugh at everything he said and trying really hard. He was polite, but not having it."
He should've bitten her.
His non-interest shouldn't be surprising. Just two days earlier, Pattinson and Stewart couldn't keep their hands off each other at a Prince show at Hollywood's Sayer's Club.
"They were inseparable -- kissing passionately," says a concertgoer. "It was like watching one of their movies"
That bad, huh?
Just kidding, Twihards. Please don't come to my house.
The pair even danced together. "Rob was grinning the entire time," said the onlooker.
