Jacqueline West, WFE Costume Designer, Talks About Rob's Underwear!

From hollywoodcrush:

From a dapper black tux to grungy combat boots, Robert Pattinson dons plenty of handsome looks in the upcoming flick, “Water for Elephants.” So, really, who would have guessed that his pièce de résistance on set was none other than 1930s-style underwear!

Yes, that’s right. Period underwear. Rob had to wear them to get in character for “WFE,” and apparently he was a big fan, according to costume designer Jacqueline West.

“He loved that I had period underwear for him,” she told Hollywood Crush recently (no doubt sparking the envy of girls EVERYWHERE). “Yes, and he loved putting that on every morning before he put his costume on, you know, he said that in his trailer, and he said it made him, it transported him to the ’30s. He said he got out of bed feeling like a different person.”

The underpants, along with his other period costumes, helped Rob step into the role of Jacob Jankowski, a vet student who joins the circus during the Great Depression after losing his parents, Jacqueline shared.

“I can see Rob, who is very languid, he’s very modern in his movements and he’s very cool. I could see him sort of kind of become Jacob and become a ’30s young man, who was, you know, gonna work hard to carve an existence in this circus,” she said.

Sorry, we’re still stuck on her description of languid, modern and cool Rob.

Sigh. Okay, now moving on.

Jacqueline also added that Rob, who was “manlier” than she expected (more on that next week!), carried the clothes very well.

“He would wear clothes so beautifully and you would see kind of a transformation, you know. If he put on those World War I combat boots, his work boots, you can see him stand differently. And I could tell, Rob would say, ‘Oh, this really feels right. This feels great.’”

As for whether or not Rob’s undies make a cameo in the film, Jacqueline hasn’t seen the final cut to know, so you’re just gonna have to wait until the movie comes out on April 22 to find out!

Sun Times: Robert Pattinson on the End of The Twilight Saga

As part of their coverage for Water For Elephants, the Sun Times spoke to Robert Pattinson about the end of an era... check out the interview below.

"Robert Pattinson de-fanged."

So much for immortality. Vampire Edward Cullen is gone. The fanged teeth have been put into storage. The glittering makeup has hit the Hefty bag. Bring on the sunlight.

By the time you’re reading this article, Robert Pattinson will have wrapped his final scene for “Breaking Dawn: Part 2.”

In a way, he’s breaking up with his ethereal BFF.

“It does feel like a breakup. I do love the guy — and I’m going to miss him,” Pattinson, 24, says during an interview with the Sun-Times on a cool Sunday afternoon from his hotel suite in Santa Monica, Calif. “I prefer to think of ending this franchise like leaving school. It’s the last day of high school.”

He mulls over the plusses of leaving behind his romantic alter ego.

“I’ll be very glad not to put those contacts in anymore or have to put on the sparkling makeup,” he says with a giggle.

The thing about Pattinson is, he likes to giggle. A lot. Then his voice softens.

“It’s been amazing to play the same character through so many adventures. And it’s so strange because my life has changed so much over these years, but ‘Twilight’ and Edward Cullen will always be a part of me. It’s been my whole life. My whole 20s,” he says. “And I wouldn’t have it any other way.”

He knows that there is no way he’s leaving this room without spilling some secrets about “Breaking Dawn,” a two-part finale debuting in November.

“I haven’t really seen any of the footage, so I’m not sure how any of it turned out. All I can tell you is, it felt right. It was from the heart. I’m as curious as any ‘Twilight’ fan,” he insists.

Director John Singleton Talks 'Abduction' and Taylor Lautner

Taken from

With the recent release to the trailer of Lionsgate’s upcoming film, ‘Abduction,’ which stars Taylor Lautner (of the ‘Twilight’ franchise), had an exclusive interview with the film’s director, John Singleton.

The thriller is centered around a young man (played by Lautner), who after seeing his baby picture on a missing children’s website sets out to uncover the truth about his life.

Also cast in the film are Lily Collins, Alfred Molina, Sigourney Weaver, Maria Bello, Denzel Whitaker, Antonique Smith andJason Isaacs.

For Singleton, it marks his return to the director’s chair since 2005’s‘Four Brothers.’ Over the last six years, the Los Angeles native has helped produced some independent films such as ‘Hustle and Flow,’ ‘Black Snake Moan,’ and ‘Illegal Tender.’ He most recently helmed the documentary ‘Marion Jones: Press Pause’ for ESPN’s 30 for 30 series.

In speaking with, Singleton talks about working with Lautner, shooting the film in Pittsburgh, and the state of Black films today.

It’s been a couple of years since you directed your last film. How does it feel to get back in the chair?

John Singleton:
It was cool. I love doing it. I love shooting and I love directing pictures more than anything. That’s what I was born to do. And this project came along at a great time. Taylor (Lautner) is a great kid. He’s like one of those chaps that’s going to be around for a long time. For me it was just really an opportunity to show what I would do with someone who was really young and established and very popular. You know what I mean? For me to say it’s for them. Other people could have done this movie. But what would John Singleton do with Taylor Lautner? That’s what makes it exciting. Like, wow. He does not come off in this movie like Jacob or any other thing you’ve ever seen him do. He grew up last summer during the making of this picture.

It’s Taylor’s first lead role (outside of the ‘Twilight’ films) and a chance to show some range.

It’s Taylor’s chance to really flex. The excitement about this is everyone loves this kid! But they don’t really know what he’s totally capable of doing. They don’t know he was a martial arts champion at the age of eleven. And that he’s physical. And that he’s actually funny. And that he’s charismatic and I was thinking they could see the potential in the ‘Twilight’ pictures then this is just like just letting it loose.

What did you do differently that would make him grow as an actor.

What I did was really just brought him into my circle and have him really relax. We just watched movies together and talked about acting and I wanted him to see how there are people in the past that have been in the position that he’s like James Dean and Tom Cruise and young actors who evolved into young adulthood and the decisions that they make. And then we start just talking about the character. And he relaxed enough to improv for the first time. No one ever asked him to do these things. What’s amazing is that everyone doesn’t see how brilliant he is at his age at just picking up stuff. He’ll come and say, ‘I want to try something.’ And he never had a chance to do that. People just wanted him to look good. They didn’t want him to flex and do different stuff.

Twilight Cast slowly wrapping up filming for Breaking Dawn

It’s sad but true.

The cast of The Twilight Saga are now beginning to leave Vancouver (and Twilight) behind, having completed their final scenes from Breaking Dawn. 

Ashley Greene, Kellan Lutz, Nikki Reed and Jackson Rathbone were all spotted yesterday at the airport as they headed home (See pictures at PopSugar), however some castmembers took to twitter to break the news:
Production is still on-going for the others, but it is expected to wrap within the coming week.
There have been rumours circulating about potential re-shoots being done in Florida over the Easter weekend (involving Rob and Kristen re-working some of the honeymoon beach moments), but this hasn't been confirmed by the studio.

What are your feelings as you see the cast leave Vancouver? Are you excited for Breaking Dawn, sad filming is done? I guess this just means that Breaking Dawn, Part One will be on it’s way soon...
