    Kellan Lutz in Cedars of Lebanon

    Examiner Amanda Bell writes:

    He's been in the Emmy-winning series Generation Kill, the Twilight saga, and now Kellan Lutz will appear in Cedars of Lebanon.
    According to The Wrap, Lutz has just recently signed on for the film - which will mark the directorial debut of Bradley Gregg - as one "of two brothers who are largely abandoned by their father and forced to grow up by themselves." Cinema Blend is referring to the film as a "family drama."
    Gregg's company, Eventide Fields, is recounting the storyline as follows:

    "Cedars of Lebanon" is a bittersweet tale of redemption, the story of Barry Deutchman’s ride upon the wave of his narcissistic father’s abandonment. Growing up in the San Fernando Valley during the 70's, this latch key kid struggles to thrive and grow where he is planted...atop very shallow roots. Forced to take care of his desperate single mother and angry younger brother…all while trying to heal his own wounded heart…he hits one brick wall after another. The story unfolds as Barry matures from boy to man. A self-medicating actor…with a young wife and kids of his own to nurture…he blindly sets off down the universal road of unbroken cycles. The reality portrayed in this cross-generational, character driven drama explores the progression and consequences of dysfunction in one American family. After a compassionate intervention and Barry’s own crisis of faith, he ultimately rises again…the cycle is broken and selfless love prevails.

    5 facts for Eclipse Movie

    Rotten Tomatoes posted this:

    Exclusive: We tap the cast for hints on what to expect - could there be 5 films?

    The Twilight Saga: New Moon has been in cinemas for almost a week. So, depending on your feelings towards sparkly vampires and extremely buff werewolves, you will either have seen it three times already (ZOMG RPattz!) or avoided it altogether. Either way, the fandemonium has subsided enough for us to look to the future. It's just seven months until Eclipse, the third instalment of Stephenie Meyer's popular book series, hits the big screen. RT caught up with the cast in LA's Four Seasons hotel during their manic New Moon press tour to get the latest on the eagerly anticipated film. We learned that Robert Pattinson hates pranks, that Nikki Reed loves werewolves and that we may just see a fifth film.

    Fact #1: It's Darker

    The brand new poster for Eclipse (above) hints at a darker tone with its brooding storm clouds. With 30 Days of Night director David Slade at the helm, it's unsurprising. "Every movie is different because we work with a different director on each one, which I love," Taylor Lautner tells RT. "David Slade is perfect for the third film because it's darker. Eclipse was my favourite book."

    Ashley Greene, who plays vampire Alice, tells RT that Slade isn't just a prince of darkness. "David is actually hysterical," she laughs, "He has such a dry sense of humour that sometimes you don't know if he's kidding or not. Eclipse will be amazing because he has made it far edgier and more dramatic. It's going to look very cool."

    Fact #2: There Will Be Less "Love Story" and More "War"

    "Eclipse isn't as intimate as Twilight or New Moon," Robert Pattinson explains to us. "We're at war, so I get to interact with more characters, not just Kristen. You'll also find out more about the other members of the Cullen family. It just feels bigger." But -- fear not, Twihards -- that isn't to say the love story is cast aside altogether. "New Moon set up a love triangle with Bella, Edward and Jacob," says Lautner. "So we explore that further in Eclipse. It's a tough situation for all of them because Bella is torn between two guys, Jacob can't get the girl that he loves and then there's Edward, with all of his issues."

    Fact #3: The Werewolves Will Crank Up the Sex Appeal

    "We all know the appeal of the vampire family," says Nikki Reed, who plays vampire Rosalie. "But the werewolf boys are on a whole different level. They interact with a youthful, playful, comfortable warmth. It's very sexy."

    As for Pattinson, he admits that his personal jealousy about Taylor Lautner's newly-ripped physique actually comes in handy for the role. "In Eclipse, Taylor and I have lots of scenes together where we have to be jealous and petty with each other," he says. "So it helps that I actually do feel inadequate when I see his body, especially because he's younger than me. He fulfills every criteria of what teenage girls want, physically, in a guy. I felt like a had to prove myself against him."

    Fact #4: There's More Action

    "Filming Eclipse actually changed my life," says Nikki Reed of the arduous training regime the cast had to endure. "I have never been so fit -- this is the first time in my life I have actually had a bicep. It's bizarre to compare how we look now to how we all looked in the first movie. The entire cast turned up on set for Eclipse looking super-buff."

    New cast member Bryce Dallas Howard tried to play a prank on the crew during one stunt, but she didn't count on Pattinson's awkwardness. "We had a fight scene where Bryce had to grab my hair," he laughs. "So she took a clump of hair from my stunt double's wig and was going to pretend she had pulled it from my head. She told me to scream and storm off set, but it was so embarrassing. She had this huge clump of hair in her hand, and I was like 'oww,' really unconvincingly."

    While the rest of the cast were having fun with stunts, spare a thought for poor Taylor Lautner. "Eclipse is a lot more physical for my character," he explains, "but any time I have any kind of action, I'm a wolf, so it's all done with CGI. It's a bummer."

    Fact #5: The Ending Will Be Nicely Set Up For a Fourth - And Perhaps Fifth - Film

    There are four books in The Twilight Saga: Twilight, New Moon, Eclipse and Breaking Dawn. But Ashley Greene gave RT the strongest indication yet that there might be five films. "We have finished filming Eclipse and one would assume that, if New Moon does as well as Twilight, then we'll start filming Breaking Dawn next year," she says.

    "The only thing is, Breaking Dawn is a very large book so it would be a really long movie. We're thinking they might decide to split it into two parts, like they did with Harry Potter. Either way, we need to get on with shooting them because, unlike Harry Potter, vampires don't age. So we all need to look the same!"

    Mistakes in New Moon

    There are a lot of "mistakes" in New Moon, I only noticed one of these... but compared to Twilight (which had way too many errors to list) it was pretty well done... all movies have slight blips...

    There are more listed here

    Continuity: After Bella awakes from the first nightmare, we see her Romeo and Juliet book on thepillow beside her. When Charlie brings in her presents the book is gone, but then reappears on the pillow between shots.

    Continuity: Bella goes to Italy to save Edward. Alice drops Bella off - when Bella gets out of the car to ask where Edward will be, first you see Bella in front of the car door, then she is suddenly behind the car door.

    Visible crew/equipment: In the montage scenes where we see Bella's depression, when the camera is circling her, the camera man is shown in the mirror (twice) behind her.

    [ Mandy's Mind - I noticed when they did this the face shown did NOT look like Kristen Stewart, I thought maybe it was a stand-in instead... I didn't notice the crew... I thought it was done on a machine... hmmm... ]

    Continuity: When Edward takes Bella to the forest to tell her he is leaving, Bella's hair hangs down her back. But in a following shot most of it is tucked up in the hood of her coat.

    Continuity: When Alice jumps over the staircase in school to wish Bella happy birthday, between shots during the scene the positioning of the decorated scarf around her neck varies.

    EW Interviews Chris Weitz

    EW Interviews Chris Weitz

    A lot of fans say they like the movie more than the book, that New Moon was their least favorite book in the series.
    New Moon takes a lot of time to read and you have a lot of time without Edward in the picture. And here in the compressed scenario of the movie, there is less time without RPatz. And the fact that Taylor [Lautner] does such a great job, to the reading audience who’s been very skeptical of him, here he is in the flesh, and it’s quite something.

    It’s interesting then that you went forward with another book adaptation with another studio, considering how badly it went the last time.
    I really liked the actors. I saw the first movie and I thought there was something special about Kristen [Stewart] , Rob [Pattinson], and Taylor. I liked the emotional tones to the book. It was stuff I knew how to do. I had this theory that if you stay true to the book, you would win. You would not only win with the fans, but other people will get what the fans care about. If the box office tells us anything, then it’s a win. It’s made more in its first day then the entire domestic run of Golden Compass. It’s extraordinary.

    What were the highest and lowest points of making New Moon?
    The lows had to be shooting at 5 a.m. in a forest and struggling to get certain shots so a sequence would string together properly. It was a very cold forest in British Columbia, and we knew we’d have another night shoot just like it the next day. The highs were the moments of real identification with the actors. With Taylor, the moments early on when he realized he was going to do it. That was very gratifying to me.

    What do you think is Taylor’s best scene?
    When he jumps into Bella’s room. There is so much pathos there even though it’s melodrama, there’s something touching about it. Or maybe the last moment he has, just when he says Bella’s name. You sort of understand just how crushed he is at that moment. There are a few times where he’s absolutely that guy and it’s really lovely. He’s that guy for the fans and that’s what I always thought he could do.

    The music was such a big part of this film. How did that all come together?
    The songs that came in didn’t have to be as good as they were. We asked bands to come up with something in days or weeks. We screened the movie for The Killers, Death Cab, Lykke Li, Anya Marina. In the case of Thom Yorke, it was surprising and delightful that the song he did worked for the action scene. There were a lot of songs that didn’t make it because they didn’t fit a particular moment or mood, not at all due to their quality. Somewhere out there is a Anya Marina recording of Lou Reed’s Perfect Day. There’s some lovely work by the Republic Tigers, some lovely work by Moby. You could make a pretty good album of the stuff that didn’t make it.

    What about dealing with the paparazzi? Did you have any run-ins?
    I did a bit of a Sean Penn at LAX. When we were leaving for the European tour. We had left from our L.A. press junket to go to LAX and someone nearly ran us off the road trying to get to one of the cars. We were followed by eight different vans and there was some really dangerous driving. And I understood for the first time how things happened to Princess Diana (I don’t think I’m Princess Diana), and I understood for the first time why celebrities lash out and what’s that about. My first thought upon getting out of the car was, “Who was that driver of the car?” I never found him, but I did lift someone by the hood. A photographer. He was in my way. They have a legal right to be there but they don’t have an ethical right, and he was obstructing my path, and there was someone else I threatened to knock their teeth out. It’s not like me but I felt very protective at that moment and very attacked. There is a huge difference between the attention of the paparazzi and the attention of the fans. The fans have been lovely. The paparazzi in my opinion are a very low form of primate.

    Fearnet interviews Melissa Rosenberg *Spoilers*

    FearNet posted this:

    There is a common link between the sparkly universe of Twilight and the sociopath exploits of Showtime’s Dexter, and her name is Melissa Rosenberg. The screenwriter and Emmy-nominated television producer has been juggling the two franchises since 2007, which is when she scripted the first Twilight film from Stephenie Meyer’s novel. Following the film’s enormous success, Rosenberg became Summit’s go-to writer for the series, and she’s since written two sequels including this month's New Moon and next summer's Eclipse.

    FEARnet spoke exclusively with Rosenberg from her home in Los Angeles, where she had recently returned from a whirlwind trip to Rome to unveil new footage for Italian Twilighters. Among other topics, Rosenberg discussed her favorite new scenes and explained how that proposal scene will be split between New Moon and Eclipse -- and that, if she were to write Breaking Dawn, the subject matter wouldn’t be a problem.

    FEARnet: Summit seems to reward the Italian fans with juicy world-exclusive clips that the rest of us salivate over!

    Melissa Rosenberg: They get a lot of clips - they saw a lot of the show! It was good; they were so receptive and wonderful.

    Have you seen the final cut of New Moon yet?

    I saw an early cut of it, yeah. Some of the special effects weren’t there, stuff like that. But I have to tell you, it’s funny because for writers, and for me – I often will dread a director’s cut. As a writer, you have already seen the movie in your head. And the movie in your head costs a gazillion dollars; you can’t actually make the movie in your head, but you’ve seen it. And so, a director’s cut is almost always a disappointment because it’s not what you’ve seen in your head. It can be a major adjustment, it’s not what's in my head but this one’s different, but as good.

    When I saw Chris’s cut, about ten minutes into the movie I started smiling. I thought to myself, I get to put my name on this. It was just so thrilling. It’s really good. I have to tell you, in all sincerity, it’s really good.

    I saw you last on a set visit to New Moon’s Vancouver stages, and you had just arrived to watch the dailies. You seemed really pleased with what you were seeing from the Volturi scenes in particular.

    Yes, and that was on a sound stage. The big screen version really lives up to it. It just looks lush and beautiful; it looks like a big movie. And the budget didn’t increase that significantly. Harry Potter budgets are what, $150-200 million? This is half of that, at least.

    You’ve added a few scenes to New Moon that weren’t in the book, like the one where Jacob gives Bella a gift of a dream catcher. Can you tell us about that?

    Actually, I got the idea from a writer friend of mine. I was searching around for that moment... You had to establish the relationship between Bella and Jacob; he can give her gifts and Edward can’t. The sort of easy friendship with the two of them, and yet also, show that Jacob actually has feelings for her. He sort of casually presents the dream catcher, but really he’s shopped around for it for quite a while. I wanted it to be something that was special to him and his culture, and it was so thematic to Bella; the movie is laden with her dreams. Her dream life is a very rich part of the film. So thematically, it really blended well. I thank my friend for coming up with that.

    What’s one of your favorite new scenes or extended scenes that you’ve written into New Moon?

    One of my favorites is actually the end, when they go to Volterra and confront a couple of Volturi. In the book, the conflict in that scene is verbal; there is an attack on Edward by Jane, and it works in the book, it’s beautiful in the book. It’s never acted out; it never explodes. For the movie, because it’s a visual medium, I felt like I wanted to externalize that conflict more, turn it into more of a battle. So it’s the same scenario, it’s just enacted and externalized. We get to see an actual fight.

    We see that fight between Edward (Robert Pattinson) and Felix (Daniel Cudmore) in one of the latest trailers, and with its slow-motion elements it looks great.

    I’m telling you: Chris and his stunt guys and the DP are just fantastic. Daniel Cudmore, who plays Felix, did a tremendous job. I love Daniel Cudmore! Not only is he terrific in this role, he’s also just the greatest guy. Funny and charming.

    In your script for Twilight, you wrote in a number of direct quotes from Stephenie Meyer’s book. Can we expect the same in New Moon and Eclipse?

    There are definitely some quotes sprinkled throughout. In some cases I’m paraphrasing, but I do try to include as many as I can. It’s very important. It brings the flavor of the book into the movie, so I definitely try to.

    Fans want to know: Did the proposal scene make it into New Moon?

    The proposal comes into the end of New Moon, and that is the first proposal. Absolutely in Eclipse, the proposal when they’re on the bed, yes -- to me, that was a quintessential scene from the book. When Edward gets on his knees, with his mother’s ring, and she says yes -- that was one of the most romantic scenes that Stephenie wrote in all four books.

    There are so many specific scenes and events in the Twilight books, it doesn’t seem like you could take them out and still remain true to the story.

    Yes. There are several that are so essential to the storytelling that you absolutely must put them in.

    Wyck Godfrey specifically said that if Breaking Dawn was made, it would absolutely be a PG-13 film, so it seems that staying true to that story’s specific events while making it suitable for younger audiences would be challenging.

    Well yes, you have to know your audience. And... there’s no reason for it not to be. It could be PG-13.

    Is there a sense that on the one hand, you have to temper the increasingly mature content in the Twilight scripts for a younger audience, but with Dexter you’re free to go as far as you want to?

    Well what’s really true is that there isn’t a lot of tempering going on with Twilight. I don’t write the movies for a young audience. I write them for an audience of all ages. I write them for myself as an audience member; I’m the first audience the script gets, and it’s not going to be entertaining for me if it’s geared toward a young audience. You’re writing character and you’re writing emotion, and that is ageless. The major difference between the two is language and some graphic violence. If you took away the foul language of Dexter and you took away the actual... well, you see some bloody stuff in Twilight, too. No one is tempering anything.

    As long as the characters’ arcs and the emotional story is genuine... I have to say, I don’t feel held back or restrained. It’s just not necessary to see gore; gore is much scarier if you don’t see it.

    Obviously by the fourth book in The Twilight Saga, there will be subjects and events that do seem unsuitable for the younger side of the Twilight audience. How would you tackle that challenge?

    If I were to be writing that, I think there are many things that probably are inappropriate, and there are probably other things that can be implied. I don’t think that it will be a problem.

    You've been writing the Twilight films while also writing and producing Dexter. How tough has that been on your schedule?

    Dexter is on hiatus now, but yes – the entire Twilight series has been juggled with Dexter. So the last three years have been busy, but I’m not complaining. I feel blessed. I am a little tired. [Laughs] October, actually, has been a break for me. I’ve managed to kind of futz around and do nothing.

    Do you have any projects on the horizon that don’t involve Twilight?

    At the moment, they are on hold. I am contemplating a lot of things, but I haven’t latched on to something yet. I want to choose carefully.

    When you started writing, did you ever imagine that you’d be writing about serial killers and vampires and werewolves by now?

    Really, you never know what you’re going to have to write about. Vampires, I had always hoped to write about. I’m a huge fan of the Buffy series; I tried to get Joss Whedon to hire me early on, on that or Angel, but that didn’t happen. So I was a fan of the genre. I hadn’t seriously thought about it, but once it was presented, it was like, absolutely. But I certainly never anticipated this kind of good fortune.

    MTV Talks to Melissa Rosenberg about changes from book to movie that worked

    At this point most people are aware ofthe changes from book to movie, if you aren't don't read this...

    MTV talks to Melissa Rosenberg about what changes worked in New Moon (from book to movie)

    Below are four tweaks Melissa Rosenberg made to the New Moon script that she believes helped make the film work. What do you think??

    Hope Bella Got a Gift Receipt ...
    In one narrative device Melissa is particularly proud of, Jacob gives Bella a Quileute trinket meant to capture bad dreams — although, judging by all those late-night shots of Kristen Stewart in tears, it doesn't work very well. "One of my favorite things is the dream-catcher that Jacob gives Bella," the screenwriter said. "It's the first time that we see Jacob, and I wanted to establish his and Bella's relationship, his sort-of crush. [The gift establishes] her affection for him and Edward's jealousy of him. So I had the idea that he brought her a little birthday gift and came up with the dream-catcher, which would be true to his culture but also to the theme of the movie; there's a lot of dreams in this movie. That, I thought, played well."

    Getting the Cullen Kicked Out of Him ...
    In Meyer's novel, the Volturi scenes are a moody medley of tension, fear and careful wordplay. In the movie, however, Felix lays the smack-down on Edward as he tries to protect Bella. Like many scenes, Rosenberg said she needed to up the visuals to take the place of lost narrative nuances. "In the book, at the very end, the final climatic scene is Edward and Bella and Alice going to the Volturi and the potential that they might not walk out of there," she said. "It is very fraught with tension, but the tension is expressed through dialogue, and I wanted to heighten that. I wanted to have that conflict be external. So I pushed it into an all-out-battle, and Chris [Weitz] and the stunt people, along with ['X-Men' star] Daniel Cudmore who plays Felix, did this great action sequence at the end that's just really fantastic."

    Cause of Death Unclear ...
    Although he's a relatively minor character, the death of Quileute elder Harry Clearwater sets off a pivotal chain of events in the "Twilight" world. In Meyer's "New Moon" novel, Charlie Swan's friend dies of a heart attack. In the movie, the sight of vixen vampire Victoria kills him. So why the switch? "Well, in the book, Harry Clearwater's heart attack is mentioned as something that happens offscreen, although it plays a crucial part of the structure of the books. It's what gets Edward going to the Volturi, after he calls Charlie and then Jacob answers and says, 'Charlie's at a funeral,' " she explained. "That launches the entire third act of the movie. ... That just gave me the idea 'Stephenie doesn't specify what causes the heart attack,' so I decided that it could be caused by something startling him. It could be caused by fear. That was a way to keep Victoria alive. It was a way to keep Charlie and the danger of the hunt alive, and that's where we get a really great action sequence with Victoria that blends together important parts of the movie and important parts of the book moving forward. So I particularly like that."

    The Love of Laurent
    Sadly, fan fave Edi Gathegi doesn't get much screen time in "New Moon" and dies quite quickly. Rosenberg told us that if she had one regret, it's that she would've liked to delve deeper into the nomad's motivations. "Yes, we had to pull out some of the backstory, because it really just came down to conversation. Laurent was in Alaska, trying to be a vegetarian briefly, and all of his relationship with the Denali clan," she revealed. "A lot of the backstory for Laurent had to be pulled, because it just slowed everything down. I wish we could have gotten more of that in there."

    People Magazine, December 7, 2009 has an interesting feature...

    Interview with Chris Weitz after opening weekend of New Moon

    “ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: What was your biggest fear going into [opening] weekend?
    CHRIS WEITZ: I didn’t have any particular fears. The tracking numbers were enough to indicate that I wouldn’t be letting the studio down. But if one could imagine their biggest fears, it would be complete rejection of the movie, by the fans. What I’ve realized over the last week is I won’t necessarily get good reviews for this movie. Having swallowed that, this was made for the fans, and if you don’t get it, then you don’t get it.

    Did the negative reviews surprise you?
    Nothing surprises me in terms of reviews. Having been a reviewer myself, there are only two ways to spin this story. You can either be the one guy who says this is a great movie, or more likely, take a more jaundiced view of the whole thing. And given the media blitz that has accompanied New Moon, it’s rather unsurprising. I do wish there was more appreciation for cinematographer Javier Aguirresarobe. I think he’s a genius and I think he made something beautiful.”

    Melissa Rosenberg talks about David Slade and Eclipse

    Saw this over at Robsten Lovers

    SCREENWRITER Melissa Rosenberg says British filmmaker David Slade is the perfect director for The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, the third instalment in the vampire romance series.

    Slade, whose previous credits include Hard Candy and 30 Days of Night, completed filming Eclipse at the end of last month.

    The 40-year-old is ideal for tackling the emotional struggles and choices in the story, says Melissa Rosenberg, who also adapted Stephenie Meyer's Twilight and New Moon books into films.

    She said: "I think David [Slade] brings an intensity that's really great for Eclipse.

    "His films of the past have leaned towards the dark, and this will obviously be PG or PG-13, so this won't be quite that dark, but he intensity.
    "He ratchets up the tension in a way that is just really artful and I think this is the kind of movie where that has to happen because things really come to a head.

    "I just think he's really going to do something interesting with this movie. I really am excited about it."

    Speaking in Sci Fi Now magazine, Rosenberg (pictured) explained: "The third book is about the triangle and this is the episode where Bella chooses between Edward and Jacob. She's chosen when we start the movie but then she had to go through a process of elimination.

    "She starts by choosing from a teenage, immature place but then we have to break that down and she really has to look at that and she has to make that choice from a very mature place and really look at the consequences of this choice.

    "The whole movie is about choices and consequences and I think that requires some very delicate handling. I think it comes to looking at both of these guys as viable options. It's really about 'Who am I, and who am I going to be' so finding that answer will require some exploration.

    "I think that takes a director who is able to get inside a character's emotional battle, because she's going to be wrestling with this the whole movie and I just think [David Slade] has access to that. He has access to that struggle and is going to bring that out in these actors."

    The Twilight Saga: Eclipse is due out in the USA on June 30 next year and in the UK on July 9.

    Meanwhile, the franchise's second instalment, New Moon, is about to rise on the big screen. It comes out on November 16 in the USA and on November 20 in the UK.

    5 Fun Facts about Ashley Greene

    When she signed on to play vampire Alice Cullen in the Twilight series, Ashley Greene didn't realize what she was getting herself into. "There are so many fans, paparazzi everywhere. It's kind of nuts to go from 0 to 60 in a year," she says. "We haven't gotten used to it. I don't think anyone does!" And though the media is speculating about onset romances and catfights, "It's so not true," says the New Moon star. But here are five fun facts that the 22-year-old Jacksonville native will stand behind.

    1. She is a daredevil

    "I had a great cheerleading squad, so I got into tumbling. The kinds of moves where they throw you in the air and you do a back flip and they catch you. Looking back, I could have killed myself! We fell a lot," she says. "There was one time they didn't catch me. That was not fun. Another time, I nailed my jaw on someone's shoulder on the way down. My coach was like, 'You alright? Get back up.' "

    2. She graduated from school early to move to L.A.

    "I was in all honors and AP classes, so by the middle of my senior year, I had all my credits. So when the opportunity came to move to L.A. I went," Greene says. "Still, my mom was insistent that I come back for the cap and gown ceremony!"

    3. She's close with Kellan Lutz

    "We have game nights on the weekends. We always do Taboo, Pictionary and Clue and we always battle on the Wii. He always beats me." But costar Peter Facinelli says Ashley has won at other games. While filming The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, due out in 2010, the cast found it harder and harder to go out without getting mobbed, "So we ended up eating in more and playing games at each other's apartments. One night we even played the Twilight Board Game," Facinelli says. "Kellan Lutz bought it. So it was me, Kellan, Ashley and Xavier, who plays Riley in Eclipse. And Ashley won. But her character is clairvoyant so I think she had a little bit of an advantage."

    4. She has a tiny purse addiction

    "When I first got paid for Twilight, it was more about making sure my rent was secure for a year. There was no guarantee that the second, or third or fourth movies would get made. By the second film, I went a little crazy with bags. I bought ones from Gucci, Marc Jacobs and Burberry. I felt a little bad at the time, but I don't regret it. I've used them to death!"

    5. She has one weakness: Cheez-Its

    "Cheez-Its are my vice, so I never buy them myself. Usually someone else is buying them for me and they're like, 'I know you love them.' I will eat a whole box. I have no self control," she says. "But I can't live life not enjoying food. So my solution is to get baggies and zip locks and Tupperware and give myself only one portion to take with me during the day."
