Kristen Stewart has finally had her say about her ex-boyfriend, Robert Pattinson, scoring the role of Batman.

The actress seemed thrilled that her Twilight co-star will take over the role from Ben Affleck, telling a reporter; "I feel like he’s the only guy that could play that part."

Superhero movies are showing no sign of becoming less popular, with the characters getting rebooted and rewritten as long as studios (*cough* Disney/Warner Bros *cough*) can keep making money.

The Batman, starring Edward Cullen himself, is due to be released in 2021 as a Bruce Wayne remake, because we really need more of those.

Pattinson spent many of his post-Twilight years talking about how much he hated being in blockbusters, and accepted parts in low-budget, indie movies.

The actor has recently been spotted in Timothee Chalamet's Henry V Netflix flick; The King. Robert playing such a famous character seems, well, out of character.

While at the TIFF film festival this weekend, she spoke about her ex's new role with Varietysaying she was over the moon for Rob.

"I feel like he’s the only guy that could play that part. I'm so happy for him. It's crazy. I'm very, very happy about that. I heard that and I was like, 'Oh man!' It's awesome."

We're glad Kristen is supportive of her ex-boyfriend, especially after they were photographed together for the first time in five years last summer.

Maybe they've repaired their relationship following their dramatic split? Who can forget the cheating scandal with her Snow White And The Huntsman director, Rupert Sanders.

Cast your minds back to the white wood panelled house from Twilight, the iconic supernatural tale of a high school girl falling in love with a (monotonous) vampire named Edward Cullen.

Bella Swan was a misfit character who spends a lot of time cooped up in her room, which is later visited creepily by Edward. The 2008 movie launched the careers of Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson.

Luckily for any die-hard fans of the franchise, the iconic home was set in rainy Washington State and is now available to rent on Airbnb. 

The famous house is referred to as the Twilight Swan House on the app, and was featured as the home of Charlie and Bella Swan in the films.

The charming 1930s home is located in downtown Saint Helens, a quiet neighbourhood, and is within distance to the riverfront and only a short drive away from Portland.

You can literally recreate all of the most memorable scenes from the infamous flick, which spawned three other films in the series and was adapted from the books by Stephanie Meyer.

Do we all remember Bella's bedroom being visited in the night by Edward while the protagonist was asleep? Wouldn't that seem extremely creepy now? It 100 percent would. Jus' sayin'.

There is a two-night minimum label on the house, with discounts applied for one-week stays or longer. The house costs a cool $330 per night on off-peak days, and $440 per night on Fridays and Saturdays.

It's pretty steep to stay there, but bear in mind that you'd be renting the entire gaff. That means you're better off getting a massive gang of Twilight addicts to head on the experience with you, and to lower the price.

As Jess says; "Need to get my twilight bitches together for the trip of a lifetime."

The fans have spotted the house online, and needless to say, were extremely excited about the possibility of sleeping in the home of their teenage obsession.

"Will be taking myself on a date of ultimate and complete pleasure there, see ya," wrote Ellisa. Power to you, girl.

We feel like we're 14-years-old again, foaming at the mouth to get our hands on a sparkly vampire or an overheated, long-haired werewolf. The hormones were RAGING.

"What if we kissed in Bella Swan's house…I'm just kidding…unless?" another fan wrote. These people are deathly serious about this house, and you should be too. It's our adolescence in building form.

The house sleeps ten guests, according to their Airbnb description, and has five bedrooms, five beds, and one bathroom. Some fans on Twitter were highly stressed out by the idea of five bedrooms and only one full bathroom, as were we.

The Airbnb owners are Amber and Dean, and are superhosts. That's a good sign that this isn't a hoax. We wonder if the house is a lil bit chilly, for the Jacobs to cool down, or if the heating is on blast for Edward?

Finally: A moment of silence for how hilarious the scene of Charlie meeting Edward was:

Hollywood is notorious for it's lack of consideration for the importance of equal pay. Actresses have continuously lost out on wages to male co-stars who are contributing the exact same or less to the project than them.

Robert Pattinson has now weighed in on the gender pay gap in Hollywood, claiming that he'd work without pay if it meant securing great actresses. Um, we heart?

The actor signed a #MeToo 'behavioural contract' before signing onto a Netflix original project out later this year. The King also stars Lily Rose-Depp and Timothée Chalamet.

Most famously, Michelle Williams was paid EIGHT TIMES less than Mark Wahlberg for All the Money in the World, and earned just $1,000 for the reshoots. Bear in mind that Mark isn't exactly Oscars material, yet he was given $1.5 million.

The highest-paid actress of last year, Scarlett Johansson, made $198.5 million less than the highest-paid actor, George Clooney.

High-profile Times Up activist Jessica Chastain was given roughly $1.75 million for The Martian, while Matt Damon allegedly earned as much as $25 million. Wow.

Pattinson, who found fame after starring in Twilight, told The Sunday Times;

“If it’s a question of me being paid more and getting a worse actress, or me being paid less and getting a better actress, I’ll do it for fucking free." We stan a Times Up supporter.

He also divulged why he never speaks openly about his romantic life, saying;

"If you let people in, it devalues what love is," he says. The actor is currently dating Suki Waterhouse.

"If a stranger on the street asked you about your relationship, you’d think it extremely rude. If you put up a wall it ends up better."

We're guessing he keeps his cards close to his chest, love-wise, since the whole Kristen Stewart cheating scandal. He sounds like a sound feminist lad, one you'd bring home to your granny for sure,

It seems like we can't escape the nostalgia at the moment, from Westlife and Spice Girls to possible Gossip Girl reboots and Sabrina the Teenage Witch getting a Netflix make-over; we're overwhelmed.

Also, what year is it? Because the latest celebrity sighting has us CONFUSED AF. 

Remember when Stephanie Meyers wrote fan-fiction about randy vampires that became a book and then a massively successful movie franchise which attracted every adolescent on earth?

The Twilight Saga had our hearts racing, and our friendships torn apart with our Team Jacob versus Team Edward mentality.

Not to mention the whole drama between the in-real-life couple Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart. Apparently, Stewart was feelin' the throwback vibes too, because she turned up to Taylor Lautner's birthday party.

The pair had an impromptu reunion on Monday, and we're DYING.

Taylor's girlfriend, Tay Dome, threw him a gorgeous surprise party and we really wish our invite hadn't gotten lost in the post.

Kristen and her girlfriend Sara Dinkin were among those invited, according to the MailOnline Taylor wrote a note to his girlfriend on Instagram, captioning it; "Thank you Tay Dome for the best birthday EVER. I’ve never been more surprised in my life."

Can you BELIEVE that it's been 10 WHOLE YEARS since Twilight was released in cinemas? Taylor recently paid tribute to the film franchise by sharing a meme of himself side-by-side with Kendall Jenner, and we cried laughing.

 He captioned the image; "It's been 10 years exactly since twilight was released in theatres. I thought I should take this moment to thank every single fan who has supported the franchise over the last decade but also to thank Kendall Jenner for being my hair inspiration back in 2007."

Gas, Taylor, gas. We just wish Robert Pattinson had joined in the fun, but he seemed to hate Twilight anyways. Remember those YouTube clips of the awkward interviews, with R-Patz dissing the series?

We had to laugh, the poor man was locked in a contract.

At least Taylor and Kristen are still pals? It's so pure.

Well, it's official, this time ten years ago, Twilight bit its way into every teenage girl's heart.

And what ensued was an OBSESSION over Taylor Lautner and Robert Pattinson – don't deny it, you had the posters.

So to mark the very special occasion of a ten-year milestone, Taylor hilariously trolled Kendall Jenner and it's GOLD.

Taking to Instagram, our fave werewolf uploaded a side by side picture of himself and the supermodel.

In the caption, he wrote: "It’s been 10 years exactly since Twilight was released in theatres."

"I thought I should take this moment to thank every single fan who has supported the franchise over the last decade but also to thank Kendall Jenner for being my hair inspo back in 07.’" 

"Thank you fans. And thank you Kendall" – someone give the man a medal because that's hilarious.

Naturally, Robert and Kristen Stewart are dry shites compared to Taylor and haven't yet released anything about the 10 year anniversary – true to form, to be honest.

It was no secret that Robert hated the franchise more than anyone else, so he's probably trying to ignore the entire day.

Although as much as he attempts to distance himself from the movies, they will always be a solid part of our adolescents and the desire to be a blood-sucking vampire.

Happy Birthday, Twilight – and it HAS to be noted that Taylor is still very much an absolute ride.

We can’t believe it’s been ten years since the release of Twilight. It only feels like yesterday when cinemas were full of teens wearing ‘Team Edward’ t-shirts and far too much eyeliner.

The fantasy films quickly exploded in popularity thanks to the complicated love triangle, the soundtrack full of emo music and twinkly vampires.

The Twilight phenomenon was everywhere you looked back in the day when vampires were all the rage. Photos of Jacob Black were stuck to the inside of locker doors. The giant Stephanie Meyers’ books were stuffed into school bags. People got quotes from the movie tattooed on their body, and some even committed to having Edward Cullen’s face etched into their skin forever.

A decade may have passed since we were first introduced to Edward, Bella and co. but people will never let Robert Pattinson forget about playing the famous ‘17-year-old’ vampire.

You’d think the actor would be tired of hearing about the Twilight Saga, but it looks like the High Life star is ready to return to the rainy Forks, Washington.

In an interview with Variety, the actor teased fans about the potential return of Twilight. “The amount of time I’ve spent moisturizing, I am ready to play 17 at a moment’s notice. Ready!” he joked.

The 32-year-old did admit he was speaking about the franchise recently, “I was literally talking to my agent about it."

It looks like we could be digging out our Team Edward and Team Jacob t-shirts from the bottom of the wardrobe sooner than we think.

Maybe you loved it, maybe you hated it, but there is no denying that Twilight was everywhere in the noughties. 

Robert Pattinson is known for his melancholy portrayal of Edward Cullen in the hit teenage vampire film series. 

The role catapulted the young star to fame, but Robert revealed on the Howard Stern Show that it wasn't always smooth sailing.

According to the star, the directors and producers wanted the Cullen character to be more positive and smile more, but Robert disagreed.

'If you’re going into a relationship with someone, the way to make it really intense is if you can barely talk to each other, you can barely touch each other, it’s incredibly serious all the time,” he told Howard Stern.

'That’s what teenage relationships are.'

'But everyone kind of wanted it to be, like, ‘No, they should just be, like, happy and having fun. That’s what people want."’

Robert felt the pressure from producers to drop the moody facade that Edward Cullen is known for, and adopt a sunnier disposition.

'(My agents) flew up and were like, ‘You have to do the opposite of what you’re doing now or you’re going to get fired today.'

Robert was even given a copy of Twilight with all the instances of Edward Cullen smiling highlighted in marker.

Robert retaliated by using another shade of highlighter to illustrate the places in the novel where Edward frowned or grimaced.

Magically, he kept his job, and we have the binge-watchable Twilight series as a pay off.

Let's be honest – whether you were a fan of the Twilight franchise or not, it's no surprise to learn that the atmosphere on set was far from welcoming at times.

And if anyone was going to spill those deets, we knew we could rely on Anna Kendrick who played Bella's pal Jessica Stanley.

Reflecting on her time on the set in her memoir Scrappy Little Nobody, Anna revealed that while the stars of the movie attempted to make her feel welcome, weather and general morale kind of prevented it.

"Kellan Lutz is the sweetest guy, but that day I think he might have strangled me if he’d had the energy," Anna admitted while explaining that the cast and crew were attempting to shoot the movie in freezing conditions in Canada and Oregan.

Anna then turned her attention to Kirsten Stewart, writing: "[She] – one of the most committed actors I’ve ever worked with — made a valiant effort to be friendly, but I could tell she was putting her back into it."

"Underneath every word, I heard 'You don’t know, man, you don’t know what it’s like out there.'" Anna added.

It sounds like Anna happily would have sacrificed her part in the franchise had she known what she was in for.

"If you told me I had to be in that weather with no relief, I would have bailed like the little b***ch I am. Extreme cold messes with you," she insisted.

"The elements don’t discriminate. And no amount of ‘you’re getting paid to do this’ matters when your body’s basic survival requirements are in play."

Christ, that sounds like no picnic.

From The Notebook’s Noah and Allie to Titanic’s Jack and Rose, if Hollywood’s good for anything, it’s producing fantasy worthy relationships.

Since Twilight has become the unlikely love story of the millennial generation, it’s no surprise that fans of the franchise are obsessed with each and every detail of Bella and Edward’s wedding.

From November 19 to 20, an extensive Twilight themed auction will be held online which will allow fans to bid on the original props, costumes and set decoration pieces used to bring the vampire saga to life.

Among the 900 items being sold by Prop Store and Summit Entertainment is Bella Swan’s wedding hair pin and sizeable engagement ring.

Since replicas of the ring have sold almost €1,500, it is expected that the real deal will go for twice that sum.

For the truly obsessed, Bella and Edward’s wedding costumes will also be sold in both their clean and blood-stained forms, as will her bridal bouquet and New Moon bracelets.

It was legit the dress of dreams, and came on the scene just before backless dresses became popular.

Well, now it could be yours.

It's been four years since we saw Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 2 on the big screen (WOW we feel old), which means it's been roughly four years since we saw the little vampire-hybrid known as Renesmee.

Mackenzie Foy, who was 10 when filming Twilight, has certainly grown up, and she is an absolute beauty! 

Now, we are not saying she wasn't lovely back in her younger days, but she has grown into a really gorgeous young woman. 

Mackenzie started acting and modelling when she was just three-years-old. 

Mackenzie has also been killing it in her acting career since the Twilight days.

Following her memorable role as daughter of Edward and Bella, the 15-year-old went on to play Matthew McConaughey's daughter the hit movie Interstellar.

Mackenzie won a Critics' Choice Award for her role in Interstellar, and has just landed herself a role in Disney's live action re-telling of The Nutcracker and The Four Realms.

Slay girl!

And now author, Stephenie Meyer, is hoping Twihards will fall in love with another story of star-crossed lovers, Beau and Edythe.

Yep, Ms Meyer is after gender-swapping the characters!

Stephenie and Little Brown Books released a special edition of the novel, which includes a completely gender-swapped version of the story called Life and Death: Twilight Reimagined

In it, Beau Swan moves to Forks, Washington and falls in love with the mysterious Edythe Cullen, who just so happens to be – you guessed it – a vampire. 

And as you can imagine, Twitter went wild following the news:
