Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson top IMDB STARmeter rankings
By Kim Palacios
HollywoodNews.com: Actress Kristen Stewart of Twilight Saga fame has achieved a #1 ranking on the IMDB STARmeter. Recent weeks saw she and Twilight Saga actors surging toward the top, after several months of a slow upward creep. Co-stars Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner currently rank at #2 and #7, respectively. Even Ashley Greene, who is not concurrently promoting other films, shot up to #15. Also notable are #13 enjoyed by Jackson Rathbone (whose film, “The Last Airbender” released this week) as well as Dakota Fanning, who comes in at #12.
During the months leading up to “Eclipse”, Pattinson’s and Stewart’s IMDB STARmeter rankings had hovered around #6 and #7, with wide spreads separating Pattinson and Stewart from all other Twilight Saga stars. Another interesting fact: the stars’ IMDB Stars seem perfectly aligned, with history showing them staying back to back in the rankings (though sometimes changing positions) and moving in the same direction at the same time.
Robert Pattinson received positive media attention in recent months for films such as “Bel Ami” and “Water for Elephants”; in contrast, Kristen’s media attention was mixed, with her sometimes coming under fire for her comments about the paparazzi while concurrently emerging as a queen of indie and a style icon. Yet, despite different career choices and publicity spins on each principal actor’s part, their star power appears to be most tightly intertwined with “Eclipse”.
From IMDB: STARmeter rankings provide a snapshot of who’s popular based on the searches of millions of IMDb users. Updated weekly, these rankings also graph the popularity of people over time and determine which events affect public awareness.
