US Weekly to repeat “Sexy Stars of Twilight” special issue

By Kim Palacios

hollywoodnews.com: US Weekly’s “Sexy Stars of Twilight: New Moon” special issue was a huge hit with fans when it hit newsstands in October of last year. Dubbed by some as a “bookazine”, the custom edition was printed on heavier (read: collectible-grade) paper with a focus on telling the stories of the films while showcasing a superior collection of pictures of the stars of Twilight. In recent days, talk of the special issue has been revived—this comes in the wake of US Weekly’s announcement that it will publish yet another Twilight-focused special issue: “The Sexy Stars of Twilight: Eclipse”.

According to BarnesandNoble.com (which has the issue available for pre-order), US Weekly editors announced that the issue will contain the following: 7 posters, 160 photos, and exclusive interviews with principal cast members Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, and Taylor Lautner, as well as secondary cast such as Boo Boo Stewart and Nikki Reed.

Speaking of Nikki Reed, reported quotes from her interview have leaked and recent commentary has included rumors of her views on specific members of the cast. Unsurprising are quotes that label Peter Facinelli as the “jokester and prankster” and Jackson Rathbone as “the most artsy, creative, and the most talented”. Indeed, such sentiments have been expressed by other cast before. Newer comments—those getting more attention—are her reported comments about Elizabeth Reaser, Kellan Lutz, Ashley Greene, and Robert Pattinson. She describes Reaser as “the most well-read”, Lutz and Greene as “very driven” (which seems to fit given recent salary negotiation rumors), and Pattinson as “having the best heart”.
