New Moon Star Taylor Lautner Dodges Gay Rumor Questions

Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart are dating. Kristen Stewart is a lesbian. Taylor Lautner is dating Taylor Swift. Taylor Lautner is gay. And the rumors go on and on and on… There are so many rumors and tabloid gossip stories about the stars of Twilight and New Moon, it’s impossible to know if any of them even hold a spark of truth.

The dating rumors and questions about the stars’ sexuality seem to get the most attention. Everyone seems to want to know who is dating whom – but Lautner, Pattinson and Stewart aren’t interested in sharing.

Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart say they aren’t a couple, but constantly seem to delight in provoking rumors they are with public displays of affection. Taylor Lautner and Taylor Swift seem to be spending a lot of time together, but neither will confirm anything is going on.

One of the less popular but still persistent rumors out there is that New Moon hottie Taylor Lautner is actually gay. All of the Twilight main stars have been plagued by this rumor at one point or another, but Lautner seems to be the primary target.

In a new interview with Rolling Stone, Taylor Lautner pretty much managed to never directly answer speculation about his sexual orientation. After refusing to commit to saying he is currently dating anyone, Lautner danced around leading questions from the interviewer that he is “trying to figure out his sexual identity in the world.”

“OK, I see where you’re going,” Lautner said. “Interesting choice.” Trying again to prompt a more direct answer, the interviewer said, “It is a possibility.”

Lautner simply replied, without elaboration, “There’s a lot of rumors out there.”

In other words, shut up and ask real questions that actually have some kind of meaning. Don’t we have enough tabloids out there spreading around crap without turning Rolling Stone into another one?

‘New Moon’ Breaks ‘Harry Potter’ Record for Midnight Premiere Ticket Sales

Twilight sequel New Moon has broken the previously impressive midnight box office record of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Price, Summit Entertainment officials announced Friday. New Moon took in $26.3 million in midnight showing sales in the U.S. The Twilight sequel is projected to earn a whopping $100 million during the film’s opening weekend.

THE TWILIGHT SAGA: NEW MOON

By contrast, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince took in $22.2 million in midnight screenings this part July. New Moon is now the all-time highest grossing film for midnight screenings in the U.S. We’re sure it won’t be the last record New Moon will make in ticket sales and overall profits.

Summit Entertainment also raked in an additional 1.3 million in ticket sales on Thursday with special screenings of Twilight in advance of the New Moon premiere.

The moral of the story is, make the Twilight fans happy and they’ll make your wallets happy too!

Miley Cyrus Bashes ‘Twilight’ – Won’t Be Seeing ‘New Moon’

Miley Cyrus apparently is no fan of the Twilight franchise and has no plans on ever seeing the original film or the sequel, New Moon. In an interview with Q92 radio, Cyrus said she doesn’t “want anything to do” with the Twilight madness that has overtaken the country.

When asked if she was on Team Edward or Team Jacob, Miley Cyrus responded in the radio interview that she’s never seen Twilight and never will. “It’s a cult. I don’t believe in it,” Cyrus opined. “I don’t like vampires, I don’t like any of that stuff.”

Cyrus even seemingly complained about the commercials for New Moon airing in endless repeat on television leading up to the premiere. “I don’t like the wolf that pops out of the screen when I’m watching TV at night, I don’t want anything to do with it.”

Well, at least Cyrus admits she is kind of a pansy for her dislike of all things Twilight. “I feel really lame because everyone’s, like, so excited,” Cyrus said. “I’m like, ‘Don’t even talk about it.'”

Awh, Miley, did you have dreams they might pick you to be Bella and were terribly pissed when you never got the call? Or do you honestly not get that at least half your fans are probably die-hard Twilight groupies and you’ve just basically called them losers?

Johnny Depp Beats Out Robert Pattinson as Sexiest Man Alive

Johnny Depp has taken People‘s sexiest man alive title for the second time in a decade, beating out Twilight hottie Robert Pattinson for the honor. People said the magazine pondered giving the award to New Moon star Robert Pattinson, but felt Johnny Depp’s longevity as a heartthrob lent the actor more weight.

“The thing about Johnny is he has proven his sexiness over the years,” People editor Julie Jordan told Today‘s Natalie Morales. Jordan said Depp was the only actor who “can pull of the sexiness behind such bizarre characters as Willie Wonka and the Mad Hatter.”

Johnny Depp joins Brad Pitt and George Clooney as the only other two-time winner of People’s sexiest man alive title. Depp recently signed on to star in a fourth Pirates of the Caribbean film, reprising his role as the flamboyant Captain Jack Sparrow.

Congrats Johnny! We love our RPatz, but you’ve been the object of many tasty fantasies way longer!

‘New Moon’ Ticket Sales Already Breaking Records

Twilight fans are so stoked about the second installment of the vampire film series, they are already setting records for New Moon ticket sales! With only four more days until the premiere, advanced ticket sales for New Moon, starring Taylor Lautner, Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart, are already through the roof.

New Moon currently holds the number one spot on Fandango.com for advanced ticket sales, making it the top-selling pre-release for the company in the last decade. That means New Moon actually beat out the pre-sales of tickets for Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith and Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. Twilight, in case you’re curious, ranks at number five on the top advanced ticket sales list for Fandango.com.

A survey by Fandango of fans shows almost 100% think the action in New Moon looks better than the action in Twilight and 50% of respondents admit to dreaming about vampires. Okay, so that’s a little silly, but kind of amusing.

Around 500 people started lining up in Los Angeles for the New Moon premiere there on Monday in the Westwood Village. Now THAT is some serious dedication to the Twilight cause!
