I always feel uncomfortable on the behalf of celebrities in interviews. It must be such an awful experience, where the key is to tell a moderately amusing story, amusing enough that people won't get bored, but not so amusing that it will ignite any controversy. Ashley Greene has a longer leash than Kristen Stewart, say, but still the goal is really to be forgettable. And to look good. Ashley Greene has definitely accomplished the second goal; when the third day story about Mr. Williams being rushed to the hospital for an exploded penis breaks, that first goal will no longer be attainable.
And obviously Leno breaks out the magazine cover and asks her about her body right away. Jay has mastered the art of seduction, huh? Hey, nice to meet you. So you look really good in a bikini! You can get there eventually Jay, but do a little "how you doin' where you from" first, okay?
I was going to complain on behalf of the public education system that Ashley Greene went to a magnet school, but if she went there from a "private Christian school" then really, she's moving up the Liberal ladder.
Hey, uh, do you think Summit will let me fix the green screen in Eclipse before it is too late? Because uh-oh! Is that clip from a rough draft or something? Is Eclipse supposed to be a throwback like Shutter Island? Was that fucking rear-projection? OH MY GOD. FIX THAT, PLEASE. Maybe they spent the green screen budget on Ashley Greene's terrible wig? I am going to hate this movie, I can already tell.
Who seated Robert Pattinson's parents next to the serial killer? That is bad staffing, people. What a dashing motherfucker, this Pattinson. Jay Leno seems even more like an asshole next to him! And hey, do you think Leno's questions could be more obviously premeditated? "Hey, so was your father instrumental, or anything?" Can Robert Pattinson's dad write movie taglines from now on? "Batman: It's Like Jaws, Mixed With A Movie About A Guy Who Likes Bats."
We should also take a moment to mention that Public Enemy #1 Trudy Campbell - I mean, Emma Roberts - was also on with Pattinson. Yesterday I mentioned on Twitter that her remark that she was "Team Jacob" had prompted heaps of scorn from fans, to the point that Roberts allegedly deleted her Twitter account. I noted that I was obviously way out ahead of the hating Emma Robert's bandwagon, but it turns out that Twilight Fans have hated Emma Roberts forever. I quote from Twilight Lexicon:
Emma Roberts (who was also on Leno last night) was once suggested by Stephenie Meyer as a possible Bella back in the days before there was a movie. The fan reaction was visceral to say the least prompting Stephenie to write on her then active MySpace; “I didn’t realize that Emma Roberts had personally run over so many people’s dogs.”
So there you have it; I was more right than I ever knew. Clips of Emma Roberts's appearance are available if you follow the above links. Thoughts on these appearances?
