BUSTED!! James Franco was recently busted again for his fascination with The Twilight Saga. James was quoted on MTV News as saying that not only has he read just about all of the Twilight Saga books, but he has seen all three movies that have been released so far. Not only that, he had some issues with some of the scenes in the books and movies.
“I read part of it,” Franco told MTV News about the final book, Breaking Dawn. “I think I got to the sex scene but it was so brief, I didn’t even know it was actually the sex scene. It was kind of really a letdown after all that build-up.”
“I wouldn’t say I enjoy them but I’m fascinated with them,” he said. “I really am interested in the metaphor of the vampire placed in the high school setting and … general feelings that people have as teenagers. And the obsession people have with that is also kind of fascinating to me.”
Franco continued talking about the outrageously popular saga, referencing a particular scene in the third installment, Twilight Saga: Eclipse. “It’s almost like a Brokeback Mountain scene where the two guys are talking in a tent and the girl’s asleep and they’re having the romantic moment almost through her in a way and one of them says, ‘Well I’m hotter than you. It’s almost like they’re winking at all the fans, to the Team Jacobs and the Team Edwards,” he said.
Well, this isn’t the first time that James has brought up Twilight in an interview. Recently, in an interview with Esquire Magazine, he admitted that he was currently reading the last book in the saga, Breaking Dawn. When asked about it, he said he was doing research for an upcoming project. So, what does that mean? Could all of James’ Twihard dreams be coming true? Could he be up for a part in one of the last two movies? If so, who could he be? Nobody knows yet, but Celebstalk has an even more pressing topic to address…Is he Team Edward or Team Jacob? So far, James has been very vocal about his fascination, but since nobody knows which side he is on…Celebstalk investigated this!
At first, we thought for sure that James Franco was Team Jacob. It just seemed more likely to us. Especially after spotting this cute pic of Franco. We know, we know…Jake turns into a wolf…but he can’t just make it obvious people!
Besides…how many Hollywood stars do you see posing with the heads of deceased animals? Just this evidence alone made us think that James very well could be Team Jacob…
But before we made any judgments, we needed to exhaust all of the evidence. And there WAS more evidence…much much more….
Exhibit B: Look at this hair. No self respecting Team Jacob member would wear this hair! This has Team Edward written all over it!
Unless Franco was out in the woods practicing his wolf attacks, we think it’s pretty obvious that this is Team Edward hair all the way…
BUT! As we said…exhaust ALL evidence!
So we are now 1:1, Celebstalkers… We weren’t sure where to turn…we even almost gave up once or twice…but we knew that we couldn’t sleep until we delivered the verdict to you…
Finally…it happened….We found this…
Disturbing? Yes…but you know what they say, sometimes the truth hurts, Celebstalkers! We believe after finding this hardcore evidence that James is not only hardcore Team Edward, but that he is somehow modeling his image after this authentic Team Edward doll…
So there you have it. James Franco: Actor, Teacher, Hottie and now Team Edward lovin’ Twihard!
What do you think Celebstalkers?
Are you shocked?
Are you thrilled?
Do you hope that James will star in Breaking Dawn?
Do you care about any of this at all?

Twilight star Kristen Stewart has announced her next big project in the works. Jumping from one book based film to the other, Kristen will play the lead role of Marylou in the film adaptation of Jack Kerouac’s On The Road.
The project has been in talks for years, but until recently, had always been put on Hollywood’s back burner for one reason or another.
In a recent interview where Kristen appeared on Live with Regis and Kelly to promote Eclipse, the third installment of The Twilight Saga in which she returns to costar with Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner, she spoke about her newest project with the hosts.
“People have been trying to make that movie (On The Road) for thirty years,” she says. “I’m so excited; I can’t even tell you. It was my first favorite book. I found this paper that I wrote in eighth grade. Not very smart, but you can tell that I loved it. You can really tell that I really loved it.”
“And here you are making that film.” Regis Philbin said.
“I know; it’s insane.” Kristen agreed.
First published in 1957, On the Road is now considered a cult classic that has inspired the likes of Bob Dylan and the makers of films like Easy Rider and Thelma and Louise. The autobiographical story tells the tales of Kerouac’s travels across the United States and Mexico after World War II in his search for self enlightenment.
Other stars set to appear in the adaptation include Kirsten Dunst, Garrett Hedlund and Sam Riley.
Filming begins in August and we can anticipate a 2011 release.
So are any of our celebstalkers fans of the classic?
Bryce Dallas Howard, who starred in Twilight Saga: Eclipse as Edward Cullen’s nemesis, Victoria, has opened up for the first time ever about her struggle with severe postpartum depression following the birth of her son, Theo, in 2007.
“Before Theo was born, I had been in good humor about my 80-pound weight gain, but I was now mortified by it,” Howard explained on Gwyneth Paltrow’s blog. “I felt I was failing at breast feeding. My house was a mess. I believed I was a terrible dog owner. I was certain I was an awful actress.”
Bryce went on to add, “I definitely felt I was a rotten mother-not a bad one, a rotten one. Because the truth was, every time I looked at my son, I wanted to disappear.”
She kept her feelings and her sadness to herself, not even confiding in her husband, Seth Gabel, for awhile. She describes her outbursts towards him saying “I screamed expletives at him, behavior he had never experienced in the seven years we had been together.”
Luckily, Howard had the support she needed from her loved ones to seek professional help where she was diagnosed with severe postpartum depression. She read Down Came the Rain by Brooke Shields and describes it as “a revelation”.
Since then, the scarlet haired starlet is happier than ever and her son, Theo is now 3 1/2 years old.
Bryce describes a friends mention of her shift, writing, “He looked at me and without skipping a beat he said, “My friend is back.”
Bryce Dallas Howard has many projects in the work for the future, so keep checking back in with Celebstalk!
“Oh my God, definitely,” Kristen Stewart, who plays Bella Swan in the series, said. “I feel like everything in our movie-the reason people love it so much-is because it’s everything that we experience. It’s like put on this…I don’t want to say idealogical…It’s just put on this level that it is fantasy love. You feel like when you’re ion love it’s fake almost. I feel like that’s how everyone feels.”
When asked, Robert Pattinson added that he has no clue if holding out for something great is in touch with teens today, but it is what he’s used to.
“I don’t know, I didn’t really go to a normal high school,” he added. “I went to a very romantic high school.”
Ashley Greene, who plays Alice Cullen, and Kellan Lutz, who plays Emmett Cullen, in the hit films both agreed with Kristen about Stephenie Meyer’s mega fan base.
“I think it’s really nice that both Bella and Edward have found the complete package in each other and they are still willing to wait for each other.” Ashley said.
“You know, I think it’s coming back,” Kellan added. “I have a sister who is here, Brittany Lutz, and it’s really cool that she’s reading these books, and her friends are reading these books. The world has gone pretty corrupt.”
Kellan went on to say, “In reading these books, my sisters really stay true to themselves and their feelings and don’t just go off of lust, but love, and holding out. It’s really cool.”
Check out all of your favorite angst ridden vampires on June 30th in Twilight Saga: Eclipse!
YES MA’AM! Edward Cullen is our June Mougar of the Month! Who else? Sure, he may look a little young to be a mougar, but don’t let his heart wrenchingly, drop-dead gorgeous, youthful looks fool you. Dude is 109 and never-changing but still manages to get hotter every freaking year! Perhaps the perfect man, except for that pesky bloodlust, he is gorgeous, rich, protective, gorgeous, well dressed, perfectly mannered, gorgeous, considerate, well read, gorgeous, musically inclined, intelligent, gorgeous, strong, a wonderful dancer, did we mention how incredibly freaking gorgeous he is?! Yikes! This guy will take on a legion of blood thirsty vampires in your honor and then sing you to sleep…what more do you freaking need?! Not much, but Edward leaves us thirsty for more…
Mini Bio: Edward Cullen was born in Chicago in 1901. In 1918, while dying of the Spanish influenza, he was under the care of Dr. Carlisle Cullen who saw that Edward’s future looked bleak, especially since his parents had both died from the illness. Carlisle made the decision to “change” Edward to save his life. Years later, while living with the rest of his family in Forks, Washington, Edward meets Isabella (Bella) Swan and falls in love with her after she discovers that he is a vampire. Bella can’t seem to stay out of trouble and Edward swoops in and saves her every time, proving that chivalry is undead!
Why We Love Him (And Why You Should, Too!): Not only is this guy incredibly, heartbreakingly, slam- your-face-against-a-wall-and-yell-to-the-Heaven’s” WWWWHHHHYYYY?!” gorgeous, he REALLY is just about as close to perfect as you can get. He constantly dazzles us with his every move and we never get tired of him. It doesn’t hurt, either, that his character is played by one of the sexiest men alive, Robert Pattinson. With lines like “If I could dream at all, it would be about you.” and “Before you, my life was like a moonless night.” he is much more than swoon worthy. His story is that of a gothic romance novel and even though you know deep down that the story isn’t real, he makes you think it could be.
Mougability: Ever been in a spot with your mate where you said to yourself “Gosh! If only he could read my mind!” ? That’s right. Perfection! He can read minds, he has super strength, he has super speed, he is like the hottest super hero you could ever meet! Want to see more of him? Who doesn’t? You can see him on June 30th in theaters nationwide where he will be back in the newest film from the Twilight Saga: Eclipse! In this, the third installment, we see Edward and his family fight against an army of newborn vampires to save Bella. We’ve missed you Edward! You don’t know how it’s tortured us.
