When Kristen Stewart was asked about Robert Pattinson on The Today Show this week, she tried to laugh and brush the question off.
It was awkward, but mostly calm and successful.
But the stress of the situation is clearly getting to the actress, as evidenced by another interview she gave this week to The Los Angeles Times.
Alongside Stephenie Meyer, Stewart went into depth about Breaking Dawn Part 2 and The Twilight Saga in general, but somewhat lost her cool when the topic of her personal life was addressed.
“People are just going to write the movie version of your life andMore >

[HMG Celebrity News] – The world of heavy metal is rich with unique characters and Van Halen front-man, Sammy Hagar is certainly among them. In his new book, ‘Red: My Uncensored Life in Rock’ Sam tells some amazing stories of back-stage life, but most striking among them is the tale of being abducted by aliens.
Within the slender 256 pages are the usual tales of drugs and wild sexual exploits, but it also outlines Sam’s long-standing interest in UFO’s and the more mystical areas of life. He’s a fan of psychics and numerology, and MTV recently asked why this was never really clear in hisMore >

Love argued (to no avail) that her comments were protected as free speech and that Simorangkir could not prove how the tweets wereMore >
