Is Nothing In This World Sacred!? Processing The Split Of Hollywood's Least Convincing Couple.

By Joanna Robinson | Pajiba Love | July 25, 2012 | Comments ()


I honestly did not until today truly believe that Twilight stars Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson were dating. So bravo to them for their private approach to their relationship. But in the wake of Stewart's infidelity and somewhat appalling public apology, (appalling in that this seems like such a private matter and I feel awful that she felt the need to make it a public one), I'm left feeling what? Apathy mostly. But if schadenfreude is your thing, please enjoy the batsh*t insane reactions of the "Robsten" fans on both Tumblr and in the comments of this
US Mag story. I'm absolutely positive that Courtney, our Sherpa in all things Gossip, will have a better take on this tomorrow.

Guess Who is the first British TV series to appear on the cover of "Entertainment Weekly?" Okay fine, that should be "which." But you get the idea. (MTV Geek)

Here's a round-up of the "7 Most Iconic Film Stills In Movie History." I dunno that I would agree. I'd definitely put Indy with the golden idol in there. What else did they miss? (NC)

Maria Bamford has a lovely piece on what it was like to shoot an episode of "Louie." If the FX show feels like something you've never seen before, there's a reason why. (Slate)

Vulture asserts that adding a Bane mask makes any villain look scarier. NEWMANNNN! (Vulture)

In this fantastic interview George RR Martin reveals the scene which inspired his entire epic. You have to admit, it's a damn good scene. (Blastr)

Making a damn good scene is Ewan McGregor squeezed tighter than a tube of Colgate into a leather jacket. (T&L)

For all you book and sci-fi movie lovers, check out the first few images of Tom Hanks and Halle Berry in the film adaptation of Cloud Atlas. Not since the flesh ports in eXistenZ have I been so unsettled by futuristic flesh. (CB)

You thought Zooey Deschanel and Natalie Portman invented The Manic Pixie Dream Girl? Ha! Here's a look back at 75 years of cinema's quirkiest fems. Caution, there's a video that starts automatically on this page so get your mute button ready, cubicle cuties. (Death And Taxes)

I stole this series of Abandoned Houses from Julie. Can you imagine the killer Pajiba House Parties we could throw? (100 Abandoned Houses)

The fact that Bill Hader is usually so good at keeping his sh*t together on "Saturday Night Live," makes this clip of him losing it during a dress rehearsal all that much more enjoyable. Also, nice wig, Hader. (WG)

Finally, Christian Bale visited the Aurora Memorial as well as some of the Colorado shooting victims. Puts that Robsten sh*t in perspective, yeah? (ABC)

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

    I'm so excited for Cloud Atlas. Not only is the book one of my favourites, but now I learn that the film adaptation has Ben Wishaw in it. Oh dear god in heaven please please let it be great.

  • lowercase_ryan

    can we take a bunch of those houses and make Pajibaville? Am I the only one that would be interested in that kind of fantastical nonsense?

  • L.O.V.E.

    As the wise Nene from RHOA once said, "Close your legs to married men."

  • celery

    All the pictures posted around this Kstew kerfuffle are making me realize that I think she's a very lovely lady. Her face has a delightful feline sharpness.

  • DominaNefret

    Also, I'm getting Mitt Romney ads across the top of my screen. Are you guys really taking money from the Romney Campaign?

  • Bah! I'm calling foul on the Manic Pixie Dreamgirl thing. 95% of them were in the last 10-15 years. Really? That's the best you could come up with?

  • John G.

    Joanna, I'm starting to get a feeling for what you're attracted to. If I show you this picture, remember that it's just an image, so don't try and break through your computer monitor.

    tighter than a tube of colgate

  • JoannaRobinson


  • John G.

    I tried to warn you. :)

  • lowercase_ryan

    Fanpop? Really? Tiger Beat wasn't enough?

  • John G.

    I can't wait to watch that video of GRRM when I'm not at work. Why can't people just provide goddam transcripts for their videos? I prefer to read anyway.

  • lowercase_ryan

    a million upvotes yes.

  • lowercase_ryan

    I'll just leave this here...

  • Green Lantern


    I LOVE her accent.

  • CMooreVerdad

    where's the transcript for us readers?

  • Bee

    The saddest thing about that video is that poor girl is 25. She needs help... or better books to read/films to watch

  • Puddin

    Damn girl. But she did teach us an important lesson. I now know that I cannot walk into a shop and ask the owner when was the last time he took a crap.

  • Oh my fucking god, is that crazy. You win the found footage award, @lowercase_ryan:disqus

  • Polly Oliver

    Long time lurker and first time poster here but I think the whole Robert Patterson and Kristen Stewart is PR genius. I mean, rumors spread that the leads of the tweenest tween film to ever tween are in lurve after the first movie is released. Boom: instant tabloid fodder. Nobody denies or confirms the existence of this relationship and the tabloids pick up every possible display of affection or accidental touch as proof. Now, the final movie of the series is set to release and KStew suddenly cheats on RPatz with a much older, much married man? I think R's team just negotiated better than K's.

  • By this time tomorrow there'll be a press statement that Lindsay Lohan is now angling to do a project with RPatt, 'cuz that's what attention whores do. In contrast, RPatt's folks will be working on an arty, indie project with JDepp's leftovers (and I mean that in the kindest way, as she's cute with the gap).

  • Ley

    I might have a reason to go to a screening of that last Twilight movie! Might...

  • athena23

    Reading the comments on US Mag is a fascinating glimpse into a whirlwind of lunacy. Needless to say, I love it.

  • laylaness

    I want to say John Cusack in Say Anything...

  • mats19

    I feel like they missed all the serious Hollywood stills that hang in every college dorm room on posters, like Deniro in Taxi Driver...bc if any movie sparks an image instantly in my mind it's that movie and Deniro all bloody on a couch finger gunning... that still will FOREVER be burned into my brain.

  • Pookie

    From what I heard of the affair, there are pictures of the guy walking up to her and then going down of her. For that reason alone I’m on Team Kristen.

  • TheOriginalMRod

    Cloud Atlas... another book I am going to have to read...

  • Ridiculously great book.

  • kushiro -

    My choice would be Slim Pickens riding the bomb.

  • spljt

    If you lean back from your monitor and squint your eyes just right, some of those houses look like mean muppets.

  • Archie Leach

    I dunno, I’d be pretty hesitant to having my family jewels being handled
    by someone that bites her lips as much as the unwashed one does.

  • DominaNefret

    Audrey Hepburn, Especially as Holly Golightly, is the quintessential Manic Pixie Dream Girl.

  • "I’m absolutely positive that Courtney, our Sherpa in all things Gossip, will have a better take on this tomorrow."

    SHE ABSOLUTELY WILL. This summer has been gossip fucking Christmas.

  • Bert_McGurt

    Well, this certainly qualifies as gossip f*cking.

  • Sometimes I think that I care about silly things too much. However, all it takes is a quick perusal of Tumblr to realize that (in comparison) I don't give a shit about anything.

  • mrcreosote

    I'm just happy that GRRM didn't say "Well, I was doin' my sister and I thought 'this would make a great series of books' "

  • celery

    Or "I realized that as soon as I get to know someone I like, they die. Wouldn't that make a great series of books?"

  • lowercase_ryan

    And you thought Katie Holmes was in danger? Scientology's got nothing on Twi-hards. She best watch her back.

  • SeaKatStabler

    Ahahhaa. Maria Von Trapp as a Manic Pixie Dream Girl! Never quite thought of it that way, but... yeah I guess I can see it.

  • Anne At Large

    I thought the MPDG was supposed to change our protagonist's life, help him grow as a person, and then bail out on him. Doesn't she kind of mess that up by sticking around?

  • Anne At Large

    And by being the protagonist?

  • Captain_Tuttle

    It's the haircut & the guitar.

  • DarthCorleone

    As for the iconic stills, the first one that came to my mind was a closing door at the end of The Godfather with Kay on the other side.

  • Bert_McGurt

    Or Vito behind his desk.

  • Snath

    Awww, they were so good together(?). Weren't they? I don't know. When I saw a headline somewhere that said "Kristen Stewart admits cheating on Rob" I thought they were talking about Rod Stewart. I don't fucking know.

  • DarthCorleone

    I gotta admit that I'm tempted to go out and buy that issue of EW, but regarding the word "cult," I don't think that word means what they think it means (LOST?).

  • Jeremy Carrier

    Well, that's it, then. True love is dead. 2012 apocalypse CONFIRMED FOR REALZIES

  • Sara_Tonin00

    The Indie still is good...but not as iconic as the ones on that list. Maybe the list just needs to be longer. I mean, I'd probably put a still from Jaws on the list before Raiders.
