Video/Pics - Ashley Greene at Wet Republic in Las Vegas

Showing off her fabulous figure in a name-appropriate green bikini, Ashley Greene spent the weekend partying it up in Las Vegas, Nevada.

On Saturday afternoon (August 7), the Alice Cullen cutie greeted press before joining her pals in the water at Wet Republic at MGM Grand Resort Casino.

Once finished getting her share of sunshine, Ashley continued along with a night in The Cabana at Wet Republic - sipping on fruity cocktails while joined by her comrades.

Keeping things a bit more low-key the previous evening, Miss Greene's Sin City weekend kicked off on Friday night with a stop at Tabu Ultra Lounge inside the MGM Grand.

Matt Morris Praises KStew After She Listened to His Song in Concert Earlier This Year - Music Video of the Song in Post

It's been a year of momentum for Matt Morris. In January, his debut album, 'When Everything Breaks Open,' was released on Tennman Records. That same month, he was a featured performer -- singing a memorable rendition of Leonard Cohen's 'Hallelujah' alongside Justin Timberlake -- on the 'Hope for Haiti' telethon. In June, he joined Ingrid Michaelson on the road, and his latest project involved shooting his first music video, 'Live Forever.' Along the way, he's seen plenty of new faces in attendance at his shows; at one of his sets in March, he even spotted 'Twilight' star Kristen Stewart.

"She was there for my last song, 'Live Forever,' which is an appropriate song for someone in a vampire movie," Morris told PopEater when he recently visited our New York office.

The Denver, Colo.-based singer-songwriter, whose name you may recognize from his childhood days on the 'Mickey Mouse Club' in the early '90s, said that he likes the 'Twilight' series, though his cinema-going experience for 'Eclipse' was a bit alarming.

"We went early on, right after the movie came out, and so we were there for, what is it, Team Jacob and Team Edward? They were in the audience. I don't know if you've experienced that before but, you know, Jacob walks out on screen, right, and like the front six rows erupt and scream," Morris said, laughing. "And then you hear people on the other side go, 'No, Edward!' A teenaged girl mob scene."

Such a story begged the question of whose team Morris was on, but he forewent taking either of the usual sides to defend the acting chops of the film's female lead.

"I think the one person who I walked away sort of most excited about was Kristen Stewart," he revealed. "I always thought she was really wonderful and has this sort of consistent little flighty thing she does. She had some moments in the movie where I thought she delivered such a ... she'd hold the gaze. It was like, this is why she's a movie star. This is why she's brilliant, because I cannot stop looking at her."

This is the Matt Morris song that Kristen showed up to his concert to listen to.. I wonder who she was thinking about during the song.. :)

New Pics of Taylor Lautner on Set of 'Abduction'


New 'Eclipse' Action Figures, Barbie Release Date Revealed

NECA's action figure collection for The Twilight Saga: Eclipse has now been revealed, and part of the selection, including those pictured right, are already available for purchasing.

Series 1 action figures for "Edward Cullen," "Victoria," and "Jacob Black" are each available for ordering on Amazon at $51.99 for all three or at ToysRUs for $13.99 each.

One fansite got the skinny on what is left to come with Series 2 action figures by NECA, and the toys yet to be available for sale include a shirtless "Jacob Black," another more casual "Edward Cullen," a new "Bella Swan," and "Rosalie Hale."

(For The Twilight Saga: New Moon, it was "Alice" and "Jasper" who joined the action figure fold, but there do not appear to be any new ones for those characters in this line-up.)

In addition to this news about NECA's line, another Twilight doll-related update has also come along: the release date for the forthcoming The Twilight Saga: Eclipse Barbie dolls by Mattel.

According to, the new "Victoria" and "Alice" Barbie dolls announced in early May will be released on August 23rd, and they are currently available for pre-ordering here and here for $24.99 each. The "Victoria" and "Alice" Barbies add to the already available "Bella," "Edward," and "Jacob" Barbies of the Pink Label line.

Assuming the tradition with these dolls continues into Breaking Dawn, are there other characters you'd like to see an action figure for? Perhaps a "Jane" Barbie or a "Bella" wedding Barbie? A "Renesmee" action figure?

Behind the Scenes Video/Pic of Ashley Greene's 'Mark.' Photo Shoot

Check out this behind-the-scenes look at Ashley Greene’s Mark photo shoot!

The 23-year-old actress — who has six movies coming out in the next two years (wow!) — shared just why she’s a Mark ambassador and a few of her favorite products.

Ashley shared, “I really connect with the brand’s target consumer because I am one. I was originally drawn to mark because of the cosmetics. But the empowering message to women everywhere — to make your mark in the world — solidified my decision.”

She continued with her favorite products: “My career does keep me busy. Every day I wear concealer, mascara and lip gloss. I really like the mark Save The Day anti-acne concealer stick, the Light Bright lighten and depuff eye gel and Gloss Gorgeous lip stains.”


Two Chattanooga Brothers Picked as RPattz's Sons in 'Water for Elephants'

Hollywood crews have wrapped up their work in Chattanooga after shooting the movie 'Water for Elephants.' It stars Robert Pattinson and Reese Witherspoon but some of the littlest stars are from right here in the Tennessee Valley.

Last Friday, while hundreds of fans were kept far away from the set on a Chickamauga farm, Sonya Gonzales got a first-hand look. Both of her sons had roles. "They play two of Robert Pattinson's kids in the movie," says Sonya. 7 year-old Mason and 5 year-old Liam were both chosen, despite the fact that casting agents didn't even know they were related.

Sonya took plenty of pictures, including several of her kids in costume. "Well I had overalls with this shirt that was short sleeves and two buttons and with all these different colors on it," says Mason.

Sonya almost managed to make it into the movie herself. In a pinch, they nearly pulled her in as a body double for Witherspoon before deciding not to shoot the scene. But she did manage to get some one-on-one time with Pattinson during the Saturday night cast party. "He was so sweet and really nice and he let me take a picture with him," says Sonya.

Now some of her kids have caught the acting bug, including big sister Abby. She is happy for her brothers even though she was hoping for a part herself. At least she got to visit the set. "It takes a lot more people than I thought it would just to get that 5 minutes of that part," says Abby.

The director told Sonya her sons' scene is part of the important ending so she doesn't expect it to end up on the cutting room floor. It certainly won't if Mason has anything to do with it. "We had to keep doing the same scene over and over again so they could see which one they liked better," says Mason.

Both kids will be compensated for their roles though they don't know how much yet. But the experience alone may be worth more.

'Water for Elephants' is expected to open next spring.


Kellan Lutz Walks/Kisses Neighbor's Dog Then Starts Moving in a U-Haul

Kellan Lutz packs up his belongings and drives a U-Haul away from his place in Los Angeles on Tuesday (August 4).

The 25-year-old actor took a neighbor’s dog for a walk before he left!

Kellan showed the neighbor how to walk the dog without it pulling on the leash, and after their walk together, he got a big kiss from the furry friend.


Kellan Lutz Attends 'The Expendables' Premiere in LA

KELLAN Lutz sexed up the black! carpet for the world premiere of new movie The Expendables at Grauman’s Chinese Theatre in Los Angeles Tuesday night.

The hunky Twilight actor doesn’t star in the movie — he had to turn down his role because of his various other filming commitments.

“I love action movies, I want to work with Sylvester Stallone one day. I was supposed to work on his movie The Expendables,” Lutz said last month.

“I auditioned for it and I got the role, but the scheduling didn’t work out with New Moon. And I was just like, ‘What a bummer.’ It has seven of my favorite action stars. Jason Statham, Jet Li, Mickey Rourke, Randy Couture… it’s such an all-star cast. If the name ‘Kellan’ would have been up there with them, I would have died happy.”


Michael Sheen Was Allegedly the Highest-Paid 'New Moon' Actor

Emmy winner and BAFTA nominee Michael Sheen, allegedly got the highest pay check for his work in the second installment of The Twilight Saga

Today Michael Sheen is one of the most in demand character actors in the world. Famously cheap Summit Entertainment spared no expense in landing him for the role of evil vampire Aro in the Twilight movies. For Summit, there was simply no other option, it HAD to be Michael, and they paid him more than anybody else in the cast. For ten minutes of screen time he made more than Those Three [Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner] who had to carry the movie.

New Video - Trailer for 'Vampires Suck'

KStew is One of Hollywood's Highest-Paid Actresses According to Forbes

Kristen Stewart -- $12 million

The 20-year-old Stewart is recognizable to teens around the world as Bella, the human caught between a vampire and a werewolf in the Twilight series. The movies have so far earned $1.6 billion at the box office and made Stewart a star. She stretched her wings this year with the rock biopic The Runaways, playing Joan Jett.


'Breaking Dawn' Released in Paperback Today

The paperback version of Stephenie Meyer's Breaking Dawn has now officially been released.

The 768 page novel was released in October, 2008 in hardcover edition, and it still rests highly on USA Today's Bestseller list, having been in the top 150 for 104 weeks (two years!).

Breaking Dawn is the fourth book of Stephenie Meyer's Twilight series, of course, and it serves as the conclusion to Bella and Edward's journey throughout the Saga. It is the longest of the four, and it also boasts the most characters.

Blue October's Justin Furstenfeld toured with Stephenie Meyer during the Breaking Dawn hardcover edition release festivities in 2008.

The paperback edition is listed on Amazon for $8.24, on Barnes & Noble for $10.79, Borders and Target for $8.99, and at Books-a-Million for $8.23.

Breaking Dawn is being made into two films (currently in the pre-production process), The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1 and The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2, the first of which is due November 18, 2011 in theaters.


'Breaking Dawn' Part 2 to Be Released One Year After Part 1

For better or worse, the end is in sight, Twilighters. Summit Entertainment has announced the official release date for "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, Part 2." The final film adaptation of Stephenie Meyer's best-selling series is scheduled to open in theaters on November 16, 2012.

When Summit revealed that "Breaking Dawn" would be split into two films — with the first film's release date set for November 18, 2011 #&8212; there was much speculation that the final chapter would drop the following summer. This news puts the second film out almost a full year after Part 1, no doubt creating an excruciating waiting period for the film franchise's extremely dedicated fans.

With no official statement accompanying the news of Part 2's release date, we, too, can only speculate as to why Summit has chosen to wait a full year between releasing the two films. One likely reason is the already-crowded summer 2012 movie calendar, which has been padded with several other highly anticipated and established franchise films. "The Avengers," "Madagascar 3" and "Men in Black 3" all open in May; June will deliver a "Star Trek" sequel; the re-booted "Spider-Man" is nestled in the July 4 slot (occupied this year by "Eclipse"), followed closely by another "Ice Age" and a third "Batman."

Now that both films' release dates are set, there are a few other unresolved "Dawn" issues, namely the MPAA rating and whether director Bill Condon will choose to film the two parts in 3-D.

"That decision has yet to be made," Summit distribution chief Richie Fay told MTV of the rating question last month. "It's still the source of a discussion."

The 3-D conversation, on the other hand, involves both financial and creative decisions. "There's certainly a financial part of the discussion," Ray said. "And yes, there's a certain amount of technology that has to be considered and accounted for. But it really comes down to the creative folks.

"In any of these roundtable conversations, [Summit CEO] Rob Friedman has always been concerned about the 'Twilight' patron," Fay added. "His concern is always the people that come in to see this movie. He doesn't want to turn them off or offend. That's why it's a creative decision. A big factor is the perception of our audience. What are their feelings going to be? If it lends itself to being a better movie because of 3-D, then that's the technology we'll use."

What do you think of the "Breaking Dawn, Part 2" release date? How painful will the almost one-year wait be for you?
