We are not prudes. We are simply scared shirtless.
With every new still of Taylor Lautner and his tersely torsoed Twilight-affiliated wolf pack, we grow concerned that our nation’s impressionable young men are taking notes—and thinking about taking off their T-shirts.
What’s the problem with New Moonings, you ask? Why can’t guys go wild like a Joe Francis DVD? What’s the downside?
Oh, nothing. Nothing at all. Except all sorts of terrible things, up to and including, economic ruin and wrinkles. And not necessarily in that order.
See, as we researched the potential impact of Lautner-inspired shirtlessness sweeping the nation with next week’s New Moon release, we were convinced anew that clothes aren’t just for hiding unsightly flab.
Dr. Gregory Buford, a Colorado-based plastic surgeon, pointed out that a shirt, combined with sun block and shade, helps prevent sun damage, if not skin cancer. And that going topless doesn’t. (“You’re just courting extra problems,” Buford said.)
Dr. D.J. Basu, a medical expert for JustAnswer, confirmed our suspicion that going shirtless in late November isn’t the wisest move for residents of the Northern Hemisphere: “If somebody goes shirtless, the risk of hypothermia is pretty high,” he said. “It’s not a good idea.”
Chris Lindland of the online pants-seller, Cordsaround, spoke of nothing less than the collapse of retail fashion. Said Lindland: “The less clothing people wear—they could put us out of business. I’m afraid of this, obviously.”
And while Lindland’s tongue was in his cheek, obviously, you shouldn’t laugh. In 1934, Clark Gable went undershirt-less in It Happened One Night, and the undershirt industry nearly went under—or so the oft-told story goes.
At least Lindland is in pants. Unlike Peter Crawfurd, who’s in shirts via ShirtsMyWay.com. “We thrive on people wearing their dress shirts,” Crawfurd said in an email, “and the last thing we want is a trend going in the direction of being shirtless!”
Ah, but that’s exactly where we’re headed if Lautner keeps making shirtlessness so attractive.
We’re all for fitness. We’re all for pride in fitness. But we draw the line at potentially dangerous Matthew McConaughey-ness.
Enough with not-enough. Button up the flannel, Taylor Lautner, before somebody gets hurt.
Besides, you’re just making all your pasty-skinned vampire friends look bad.
Twilight was the big winner at yesterday’s Teen Choice Awards, but let’s face it, the whole day was all about Robsten.
Inside the show, K and R were separated by Taylor Lautner (so friggin’ typical), but during commercial breaks they managed to squeeze in plenty of time to share a few laughs.
“Girls kept running up to [Rob] asking to get pictures with him, and he was so nice about it,” said a source sitting near the couple inside. “Rob would smile and meet all of the giggling girls while Kristen would look on and just laugh about all the attention he got. Some even asked if the two were an actual couple, and they would just shoot each other a look, blush and start giggling.”
While we’re not positive if the two arrived together, like we Twittered last night, we’re damn sure the two love-biters left together.
We saw Rob and Kristen dart out the back and get whisked off together in a black Navigator as most of the Twi cast did an interview with Entertainment Tonight. If you’re skeptical, then peep the video for yourselves.
So did Robsten celebrate all their awards privately last night?
Of course. We heard from solid sources that Rob was back at the Chateau Marmont last night, and he most definitely wasn’t hanging around any of the bars or main areas (standard Pattinson locales when he’s there, btw). So he must have preferred to hang in his room instead. Is that what you call Stewart service? Just not sure if he was also somewhat resting up for his travels to Vancouver this morning.
Paps seem to believe Kristen was at the hotel, but insiders tell us there were no documented Robsten sightings inside the über-exclusive hangout after the awards. Did they stealth suck face once again? Seems so.
However, that was so not the sneaky case for most of Rob’s stay in L.A. this weekend.
“Kristen was in and out all weekend,” pipes our first-hand Chateau source.
Love it! You, too? What a stupid question.
In what is perhaps one of the summer’s most eagerly anticipated events, Twilight dream couple Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson will finally be reunited at Comic-Con International in San Diego, which starts July 23. And fans of Stephenie Meyer’s best-selling vampire book series aren’t the only ones anxious about the pairing: For weeks, Kristen has sat back while Rob continues to get cozy with his Remember Me co-star Emilie de Ravin.
But now Kristen is determined to win back her leading man.
“Kristen’s got too much going for her to come in second,” a source close to the 19-year-old actress tells OK!. “She really cares for Rob, and if he still feels the same, she wants their relationship to progress. The Comic-Con reunion will be a real test.”
However, R-Pattz’s chemistry with Emilie hasn’t escaped Kristen, either.
“She’s seen photos of them sitting with Emilie’s hands resting tenderly on Rob’s arm, and she sees the way Emilie looks at Rob,” says the source.
Although Kristen was initially going to avoid Comic-Con, her pals, including Runaways and New Moon co-star Dakota Fanning, have convinced her to not only show up, but to fight for him with everything she has.
“Her friends are insisting she look as hot as she can when she and Rob see each other so he will fall head over heels with her all over again,” says the pal. “And Kristen is taking their advice to heart. She asked her Runaways stylist to find her a sexy sundress and a couple of great outfits to wear at the convention. She wants to look so amazing that Rob won’t be able to take his eyes off her.”

After Robert Pattinson confirmed he was signed on for the fourth Twilight installment, Breaking Dawn, back in Cannes, we’ve all been dying for more juicy deets on the hypersexualized film. (More on exactly how much naughtier the flick will be, next week.)
Yes, we know we’re getting overeager since the script for the third flick, Eclipse, which starts shooting Aug. 17, hasn’t even been finished yet.
“I haven’t seen a page,” exclaimed Ashley Greene, who’s heading back up to Vancouver to shoot the third Twi flick this summer.
Even though we’re getting a tad ahead of ourselves, we tried to pry any dirt out of Ashley and Billy Burke last weekend on what’s in store for the final movie.
“All I know is that, as of now, I only signed on to do three,” B.B. told us. Coyly played Billy. Maybe he’s just trying to keep all Twi dirt on the down-low, or it could be that the secondary castmembers haven’t started negotiations. Rob and Kristen Stewart are locked in (after so much drama you have no idea—but you’re not interested in that, right?), so that’s all that matters.
But Breaking Dawn isn’t exactly as far away as you all would think.
“We’re going to start right after Eclipse,” says Ash.
That doesn’t come as surprise to us, as we exclusively told you how Summit would be pumping out this franchise as fast as possible to avoid any “bumps” in the road.
So will we see any repeat directors for the fourth film?
“I don’t think so,” says Ms. Greene. “[Eclipse director] David [Slade] and [New Moon director] Chris [Weitz] will both be busy in postproduction, and Catherine [Hardwicke] will be doing Hamlet.”
Well, like we said in last week’s Truth, Lies, & Ted, there’s no friggin’ way Catherine would be back even if it was possible! Despite all the success and money C.H. brought Summit, insiders insist she’s so crazy she wouldn’t get the gig if Robsten themselves demanded it.
And as much as everyone adored Chris, that’s not going to happen because of “scheduling conflicts,” we’re told.
So there ya have it. Who do you all think should do the fourth one?
