Entertainment Weekly Goes Twi-Hard

There’s a great new interview with Kristen Stewart, Taylor Lautner, and Robert Pattinson on the special edition double cover of the new Entertainment Weekly.

Oh by the way, they are calling Eclipse the “BEST Twilight movie so far.”

It’s interesting, they ask Kristen Stewart about her comments comparing being hounded by the media to rape, and R-Patz quickly swoops in to her aid, just as Edward would for Bella.

Check out some highlights

You got a lot of criticism recently for comparing the intrusiveness of the paparazzi to rape. The comment got blown out of proportion very quickly, and you apologized.

Stewart: I’m so sensitive about stuff like that. It is the one subject that means a lot to me. I made one movie directly concerning it and I made another one where my character has a horrible history of rape. I talked to a lot of people about it. I used the wrong word. I should have said “violated.” But I’m young and emotional. It’s just the way it goes sometimes. I probably shouldn’t say this, but I just feel like people got so excited once they saw that it was me. It was like, “Sweet! Lets get her!” And then for the people to exploit it under the guise of being morally upstanding is disgusting – and it embarrassed me because I was part of it.

Did you see it all unfold and then think, I have to issue an apology?

Stewart: No, I was in Korea when it all got bad. My publicist called me and said RAINN had issued this terrible statement.
Pattinson: Who’s Rain?
Stewart: You know, The Rape, Abuse and Incest National Network.
Lautner: I thought you were talking about Rain, that Korean star, or something. I was like, What did they do? They sicced Rain on you? The Ninja Assassin?!
Pattinson: None of those associations came out and gave a statement {criticizing Kristen} without being called upon by the media first – who were doing it specifically to get hits on their websites. That whole system of Internet journalists, where no one is called to account, is almost entirely about hate. All these people get away with doing it because they have no responsibility to anyone. All they need is to get a salacious headline and people click on it, because it’s easy. And it’s quite good being part of these ‘Twilight’ films because you have to give so many interviews all the time, you can defend yourself. That’s the only way. All of us stick together as well. There as so many little nerds behind their computers, on their little blogs.
Stewart: See, if I said that? Crucifixion. You can say so much more than me. It’s insane.
Pattinson: That’s not true at all. When did I say anything {controversial}?
Stewart: You’re really good, but you could say “I just took a s— on the Queen’s face,” and people would be like, “Oh, I love him! I love him!”
Pattinson: That is so not true.

Dating?  No? No?

We bet Robert could “take a s— on the Queen’s face” and somehow get away with it too.

The Twilight Eclipse red carpet premiere is TONIGHT in downtown LA and you can catch it live online on a number of websites at 8pm ET and 5pm PST
