LA Times: Twilight' Countdown: Kristen Stewart talks about becoming Bella. "We just read the story a lot and sat up nights talking about 'Last Tango in Paris' [laughs]. We talked about how to find similar dynamics." I... well then. Oh, and how does she feel about the Hot Topic maul tour? "I’ve only had a couple of occasions where I’ve had to deal with the craze. Rome being one, Comic-Con being the other. At Comic-Con, we were entirely separated from them, and that’s how it should be. I know Summit’s trying to promote the frenzy, but I’m going to tell them, 'Yo, you have to protect us from this.' I’ll have big bodyguards."

A few weeks ago Paul Rudd was in Chicago promoting his new comedy, "Role Models." Minutes before our interview, he had to cancel. Family emergency. A few days later, news came that his father had died. Despite the circumstances, Rudd was nice enough to chat with me by phone this week from his home in New York City.
