Twi-Screenwriter on Robsten: Leave Their Private Lives out of It!
Just because Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart are such a perfect match on screen, Twilight screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg thinks it's time we mind our own business about what goes once the cameras stop rolling.
"Their chemistry on film is so extraordinary," Rosenberg told us at the Entertainment Weekly/Women In Film pre-Emmy party. "They were beautifully cast for those roles and their chemistry is amazing. I think people often confuse chemistry onscreen with chemistry offscreen.
"I think people should just enjoy what's onscreen and leave their privates lives wherever they are," she continued. "I don't actually know what they are."
So what scoop did Ms. Rosenberg tell us about our fave vampire movies? Read on to find out…
First up, Breaking Dawn. Rosenberg is not allowed to could not confirm she's going to be tackling the script. "That's still up in the air," she said. "We're still talking and nothing's been decided."
Eclipse's Riley (Xavier Samuel) will have a much bigger presence in the movie than he has in Stephenie Meyer's novel. "This is a character that's really interesting and I got a chance to flesh him out," Rosenberg said, adding, "It's going to be really interesting watching the relationship between Riley and Victoria [Bryce Dallas Howard] growing."
As for the next flick to be released, New Moon, she said, "There's a lot of things that go on in New Moon that expand on the book. The conflict at the end with the Volturi is an example. Building on them is going to be really intriguing for the fans."
Among the other guests at the EW/WIF bash was Twilight's original Victoria, Rachelle Lefevre, who is doing just fine since her dramarama with Summit Entertainment, thank you very much. "To be honest, I sort of feel like I have everything," the ginger beauty glowed. "I have an amazing boyfriend, I love my house, I'm wearing a great Jay Godfrey dress and I'm at an Emmy party."
And we can attest to the amazing boyfriend, The Tudors star Jamie Thomas King—well, at least what he looks like. We got a peek of him at the bash and he is quite the hottie.
Also seen mingling at the soiree, which took place at the Sunset Marquis Hotel, were Audrina Patridge, Sela Ward, AnnaLynne McCord, Shaun Sipos, new So You Think You Can Dance judge Adam Shankman, Andrea Bowen, Katie Cassidy, Johnny Galecki, John Leguizamo, and Sharon Stone, who made her way through the party on the arm of EW's managing editor Jess Cagle.
