How Twilight's Jasper, Rosalie, & The Volturi Were Named + Cullen Vampire Powers

A long, long time ago, June 2010 to be exact, TwiFans.com had the great opportunity to interview Mrs. Stephanie Meyer for 4 hours.  We blogged and blogged right after it happened for weeks and weeks until our little twi-fingers fell off.  But after careful review of all the audio, we have just realized that there is more to blog.  So here we are with *air quotes* "The Lost Stephanie Meyer tapes."  We have a couple more blogs to do.  We hope you don't mind....


 How Jasper, Rosalie, & The Volturi Were Named by Stephanie Meye... by twifans

TRANSCRIPT:
Question: We’re from Texas. Of all the places in the south…Was there a specific reason
you chose Jasper to be from Houston or Galveston, that area?

SM: Umm….southern accents are sexy. (laughter, chatter) And then I needed….there
were certain things I needed for his character. I wanted the military background. And
you only have so many wars to choose from. Umm…then, with the sunshine down there,
I was able to evolve into this whole other world that Bella sees. Also, I found his name
— this is really where it got started; this is gonna make you all very sad — his name
originally was “Ron.” When I picked the names originally I’m going through, the side
characters weren’t as important to me at the time. I looked at census records from the
years that they were born. So Rosalie’s name was “Carol.”

Group: (General disbelief and unable to wrap their heads around the name “Carol” for
Rosalie)

SM: But the year that she was born, that was one of the top names. “Rosalie” was not on
that list, but later I was thinking, “This name doesn’t fit her.” As she became more of a
character, I was like, “I hate that name.” Ok, I’m sorry, my aunt Carol — I do not hate

that name.

Group: (laughing)

SM: The name for the character…(laughter)…and as I was doing Jasper’s name—

Girl: Is that off the record?

SM: Off the record, yes (laughing). I found his name on a roll call of soldiers in
Texas. “Jasper” was one name and “Whitlock” was somewhere else, so I put them
together. It’s a hot name…“Jasper.”

Group: (Agreeing)

SM: Once I heard “Jasper,” I said, “oh yeah, oh yeah….so much better.” You just have to
take time with some people’s names. Some people’s names come super easily. Alice was
always “Alice,” was always “Alice” — was so perfect for her. Edward took some time
to come up with a name. He was “he” for a very long time. Bella was a nightmare. I still
don’t know that her name…..NOW it has come to fit her. But from the beginning, I never
had a name that I really liked for her. And I made her name kind of a bad joke because
I could see her as a child with her name being “beautiful swan” being this awkward kid
who hated her name. And that never comes…..that fact, I cut out of the original…..she
hates her name, and…always wanted to change it, but then, ya know……her mother’s
maiden name — before she got married, the name was “Higginbotham.” And so there
was…..Renee wouldn’t go back to her name…..Yeah, there’s a whole story here. There’s
always a story. There were name issues. She does not like her name.

 Hardest Twilight Character to Name & Vampire Powers-TwiFans.com by twifans


TRANSCRIPT:
Guy: What was the hardest name for you?

SM: “Bella” was probably the longest, the longest name (meaning, the one she struggled
with the longest). “Rosalie” and “Jasper” were easy, once I kind of committed to the
characters. I do need to have…to pick something out. The names got easier with time.
I had to do some research for how I wanted the Volturi to sound, particularly the really
old ones. “Caius” and “Marcus” were names that were around. “Aro” was…I wanted
something strong and different. So I…took sounds rather than actual names that existed.
Names are fun. They really are. It’s fun to play with them.

Girl: Aro is probably my favorite. That was brilliant.

Girl 2: Did Jasper’s special power come from you researching the name “Jasper”?

SM: He had special powers when he was human. Because you have this group that have
to have….to be able to do what they do, they really kind of need something extra. Like,
they ARE special amongst the world of vampires because they do something that’s very
difficult, and so…that they would be talented kind of came naturally. Alice is….Alice
is so easy. From the minute Edward had a sister, her name was “Alice,” and she could
see the future. I mean, she just…she was one of those that you’re almost like “wow! It’s
like I knew this person,” but you don’t, because it’s so clear. And, that she would be with
someone special also was a given, I think. That he had to have some way to pull himself
out of his past. Something extra.

To see all the Stephanie Meyer interviews go here.  It's worth it, we talk Volvos and Angryward.  Pure Epicness!

Special thank you to Ms Monkey_Man for transcribing for us and Samuel for editing
audio. Proof reading and grammar for us country gals done by Bella Black+LHJake. She makes us just like the city girls!

Twilight Saga Producer Wyck Godfrey Gushes About Breaking Dawn - Part 1

Alison Genet

Next to Stephenie Meyer, we consider Wyck a GOD amongst people involved in the Twilight world.  The God that decided to put his Benjamins into Twilight.  He has been a producer of the Twilight Saga movies since the beginning.  YAY for Wyck.

If you read our interview with Mrs. Meyer, she talks all about how Wyck and her have fun while waiting to film scenes on set, then you know Wyck is not only smart, but he's witty.  And our little experience gave us a little insight to his wittiness.  Keep reading...

We practically yell, we love you Wyck, across the lobby.  No, nothing like that, but it felt very enthusiastic, in my mind, as we told him that we are his biggest fans.  He laughed.  Little did he know we really are!  We started reciting Stephenie and Wyck from the Eclipse commentary...okay, no we didn't, but we did say "We LOVED it."  At this point Wyck knows we don't just love his work as a producer on When a Stranger Calls or Alien vs. Predator, and he gets right to Breaking Dawn.


"We [Stephenie & Wyck] are trying to do commentary on this [Breaking Dawn - Part 1] DVD too," Wyck says with a big grin. 

"We [Dawn and I] love it the most when the two of you argue.  It makes us laugh,"  says Alison and Dawn.

He laughs and adds, "It's funny right?  I am trying to talk her [Stephenie] into it. Have you seen the new trailer?"

Dawn and I both enthusiastically say, "yes!"

"I can't wait for the fans to see the movie.  It's my favorite of all the movies!" Wyck exclaims.

At this point they are trying to usher people to their seats and I am in a Wyck conversation haze, but I had the presence of mind to ask Wyck for a picture.  He says, "Of course."  But security has other plans and tries to get all of us out of the lobby.  Wyck stops him and says, "but these girls are old friends."  Security smiles and let's us grab the photo above!

We found him lying fibbing to security to be sharp and hysterically funny, and great timing.   Just like producing the Twilight movies. 

If Wyck ever gets a gander at this, we would just like to say thank you for spending 3-5 minutes with two of your biggest fans.  See you at the Breaking Dawn - Part 1 premiere.  We will be there just like the last two!

Read the blog where Stephenie Meyer talks about Wyck here.
See a video that includes Wyck saying HI to TwiFans.com here from the Eclipse premiere.

Are Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart & Other ‘Twilight’ Actors Like Their Onscreen Characters? ‘Breaking Dawn’ Star Elizabeth Reaser Spills The Secrets!

BY 10.44 AM EDT 09.09.2011

Kristen plays Bella, who is very timid and soft spoken, and Rob’s fearless Edward Cullen would do anything to save her — but are they like this in real life?

If you ran into Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart on the street would you be disappointed because they’re nothing like their Twilight characters Bella and Edward? HollywoodLife.com spoke with Twilight actress Elizabeth Reaser at Time Warner’s Beyond 9/11 Photo Exhibit and screening on Sept. 8 and she revealed exactly what Rob and Kristen are like off set — and you’ll never believe what she says!

“I adore Rob and Kristen. They are like family to me,” Elizabeth says. “They are both very shy and very sweet. Kristen is just a little sweetheart and I love her. And Rob is the same guy I met four years ago. I don’t even think of them as celebrities until I’m going somewhere where they will be and then there’s screaming and freaking out. It almost doesn’t register until we’re in a setting like Comic Con.”
Sigh. We love hearing how down-to-earth and wonderful Robsten is in person!
But if you thought Kristen was the only actress like her onscreen character — you’re wrong Twi-hards!
“I almost feel like Ashley Greene is most similar to her character [Alice Cullen]. I don’t know if she’d agree with me. She has that sweetness and likeness and warmth and love of fashion … the aesthetic,” Elizabeth said. “Nikki Reed too, has a lot of Rosalie Cullen in her, a lot of fierceness, a lot of love, brilliant – there are pieces of all of us [in our characters]. Peter Facinelli too, he is such the dad on set to everyone. Great father, great family man.”
There you have it HollywoodLifers, what do you think of Elizabeth’s Twi-secrets?

‘Breaking Dawn’ Birth Scene Is ‘Intense’ & ‘Realistic’ — An Insider Speaks Out!

BY 8.57 AM EDT 09.29.2011

Robert Pattinson & Kristen Stewart’s troubled delivery will blow fans’ minds — we’re SO excited!

Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart will welcome a baby in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, and an insider connected with the movie says fans be stunned during the crazy scene!

Jack Morrissey, the partner of director Bill Condon, took to Twitter to answer fans’ questions about how intense the birth scene will be — and it sounds like diehards will NOT be disappointed!
“It’s very intense, realistic and subjective,” he wrote.
We’re so excited! What do you think, HollywoodLifers — will the Breaking Dawn birth be the wildest scene of the series?

Robert Pattinson debuts album



Robert Pattinson debuts album
Robert Pattinson makes the ladies swoon when on screen, but can he do the same for the ladies when on an ipod? The twilight star is said to be in the recording studio, laying down lyrics for his first-ever album. A source says "Music is his first love! He's tortured because he avoids it. When he's sitting around jamming in the studio, it's his favorite moment of life." Moreover, a second insider compares Rob's sound to a stripped-down Ray LaMontagne meets Van Morrison.

Robert Pattinson Has An Intimate Dinner Date With One Of The Most Important Women In His Life!

Kristen Stewart may still be in London, but Rob’s hitting the town with an attractive girl — find out who!

Robert Pattinson is still spending time away from Kristen Stewart, but that didn’t stop him from going to dinner with another woman! HollywoodLife.com spotted him out, and we have all the EXCLUSIVE details!

Rob, 25, was at Soho House in West Hollywood on Sept. 1 with his sister Lizzie Pattinson and good friend Sam Bradley! Three eyewitnesses who were seated at the table next to Rob’s in the Garden Room, say he looked “very happy.”
Rob was dressed down in his usual unbuttoned plaid short sleeve shirt with a black tee underneath, topped off with a trucker hat.
The trio went unnoticed as they had a quiet yet what looked to be a rather “deep” conversation. They were seated by the venue’s floor to ceiling windows which overlook a gorgeous view of LA’s twinkling nightime lights.
Our sources tell us Rob chowed down on some pizza and was drinking a “clear” cocktail.
Meanwhile, Rob was sporting a full on beard. Our eyewitnesses say it looked like he hadnt shaved in a few weeks, almost like he belonged back in Squamish, BC Canada where he filmed Breaking Dawn! We guess that’s what happens when your girlfriend is away … you don’t have to shave!
They all jetted off around 11:30pm, after about two hours.
We love that Rob was able to enjoy a night out with his sis and friend, but when will he see Kristen? We told you it’s been exactly one month since Rob and Kristen have seen each other, so we’re hoping he is headed to London to see her for the long Labor Day weekend!

K-Stew, 21, stunned in a colorful mini, chic boots and her long, pretty hair. She’s never looked better!
What do you think, HollywoodLifers — is Kristen pretty enough to be a runway model?

Breaking Dawn Movie Rating Revealed—So How Much Vampire Sex Will We Get?


Wed., Sep. 21, 2011 11:01 AM PDT by 
Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, Breaking Dawn Part 1Andrew Cooper, Summit Entertainment
It's the honeymoon heard round the world.
As we're sure all you Robsten fanatics (and non Twilight fans too, we're sure) know by now, Robert Pattinson's vamptastic Edward Cullen and Kristen Stewart's Bella Swan are finally tying the knot in the soon-to-be-released Breaking Dawn. And what comes after the wedding? The (hopefully) très sexy wedding night, of course!
So just how much heavy petting should we expect? The movie rating is in and it's...
PG-13, duh.
Did you really expect the franchise to suddenly grow some glittery balls and nab that naughty R-rating?
Nope, the film will pander toward the preteens, as did the past three films.
Doesn't someone over at Summit know that most of the die-hard Twilight fans coughing up box office bucks are of the maternal variety? We think an extended hump-happy version of the film is in order!
So what landed the film in the PG-13 spectrum? According to the MPAA: "disturbing images, violence, sexuality/partial nudity and some thematic elements."
Forget the gross demon baby eating its way out of the womb; we're far more interested in that partial nudity biz. Just how partial are we talking?
We're sure we'll get some ab shots of Pattinson (and Taylor Lautner too, right?), but maybe Bill Condon snuck in a quick look at his tush also?
We can dream, right?

Kellan says that fans will absolutely go crazy for Edward and Bella’s honeymoon!

Kellan Lutz tells Us Weekly that the sex scenes between Edward (Robert Pattinson) and Bella (Kristen Stewart) in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1 are “so sensual!”

“The fans are going to love what goes on between those two. Everyone worked hard to capture the feel of the book,” Kellan adds.
We’re so excited for November 18, we can barely stand it!

Exclusive: Robert Pattinson Is Recording an Album!





Credit: Dominique Charriau/WireImage.com
Robert Pattinson, rock star?
The British actor, 25, is prepping to record an album imminently, two sources tell Us Weekly.
"Rob has been kicking a few original songs around for a long time, but his schedule didn't allow it," one insider explains of the superstar, who recorded two songs, "Never Think" (which he co-wrote with pal Sam Bradley) and "Let Me Sign" for the original Twilight soundtrack.
"Now he's got some weeks to get everything in line before going back to promoting Breaking Dawn."
But don't expect a chart-topping album with broad mass appeal and a string of top 40 hits. "The album Rob will make will be guitar-based and drums, very organic-sounding, nothing pop," explains a second source of the indie-music fan, "Like stripped-down Ray LaMontagne meets Van Morrison."
Pattinson frequently had hotel room jam sessions with other Twilight pals while shooting the flicks in Vancouver and elsewhere. His Twilight costar (and fellow musician) Jackson Rathbone said Kristen Stewart's man "loves to play the blues. He can hold his own on a guitar. We enjoyed jamming together when we had the time. Very humble and quiet guy."
"Music is his first love!" says the second source. "He's tortured because he avoids it. When he's sitting around jamming in the studio, it's his favorite moment of life."
To prep for the recording session, the guitar player has been "studying on on other instruments -- like piano and horns," the first source reveals. "It's an obsession for him."
Tell Us: Would you buy a Pattinson record?

Rob Pattinson’s ‘Cosmopolis’ Wife Reveals Why She Didn’t Want To Have Sex With Him!

BY KIRSTIN BENSON3.33 PM EDT 09.13.2011
It’s hard to believe anyone would turn down sex from someone as attractive and charismatic as Robert Pattinson, but that’s the case with his on-screen wife in his upcoming film, CosmopolisSarah Gadon, who plays his wife, Elise, recently explained why her character is not interested in doing the deed with Rob’s character, Eric.
“I play Robert Pattinson’s wife, a woman from a wealthy New York family who’s also a poet and artist and believes she shouldn’t engage in any sexual relationship while she’s creating her art, and that obviously informs her marriage,” Sarah told the Toronto Sun at the Toronto International Film Festival, where her other David Cronenberg film, A Dangerous Method premiered.
Cosmopolis follows Rob’s character — a young billionaire — over the course of a long journey (24 hours) to get a haircut in Manhattan. The director has said the film is still in post-production, but that there’s a good chance it will premiere at the Cannes Film Festival next year.
Are YOU excited to see Rob in this highly-anticipated role?
