Within a few minutes of Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner taking the stage on The Oprah Winfrey Show today, the host compared the group to The Beatles.
While anyone born before 1960 is likely rolling over in his/her grave right now, listen (below) to the response these stars received on the talk show. Defeaning does not begin to describe it.
Once the screams died down, Oprah started to grill the Eclipse cast. She had to ask Robert and Kristen about their relationship, of course, which prompted the following exchange (and subsequent, ridiculous tabloid cover):
Pattinson: Kristen's pregnant.
Stewart: He really loves to shock people because he thinks it's funny. No, we've actually had this conversation. He's having the baby.
Oh, those two.
As for what Lautner is looking for in a woman, he told the adoring audience: "Loyalty. "Honesty. Really important to me is somebody who can totally let loose and pretty much be themselves and have fun."
Stewart was asked about the character of Bella Swan and said: "I can also completely relate to the fact that she's totally awkward, but that she owns it and she's not going to say anything she doesn't mean."
Other topics touched on during an interesting hour of television:
- How Taylor bulked up for his role as Jacob by eating beef patties all day.
- How Rob wanted to be a rapper when he was 14.
- How Kristen REALLY likes her cat.
- What it's like to be part of this franchise, as relayed by Pattinson: "It's not really about you. So, it never really goes to your head and you can kind of participate in it. It's about the fans themselves. A lot of people, they just like doing Twilight-related things."
