‘Twilight’ Stars to Be Immortalized at Grauman’s Chinese Theatre TODAY!
‘Twilight’ stars Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, and Taylor Lautner will have their hand and foot prints immortalized outside Grauman’s Chinese Theatre today.
Ah, Grauman’s Chinese Theatre! That most venerable of Hollywood landmarks! Home to the hand and foot prints of many a star! Jimmy Stewart! Bette Davis!… The cast of Twilight?
It’s true: According to The Hollywood Reporter, Twilight stars Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, and Taylor Lautner will be joining the noble ranks of those Hollywood greats immortalized in front of the Chinese Theatre. And it’s happening today! In just a few short hours, the three of them will undergo the cement-soaked ceremony that will induct them into the elite club of 250 actors and entertainers who have had their hands and feet preserved for all time. The prints, I mean. Not their actual hands and feet. That would be gross.
Now, I know what many of you are thinking: Is this honor they really deserve? Well, that’s a whole ‘nother can of worms. Personally, I don’t think any of the three of them have the acting chops of, say, Meryl Streep (who made her prints on September 25, 1994); but then again, the same can be probably said of the Harry Potter cast (Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, and Rupert Grint stuck their hands, feet, and wands into cement on July 9, 2007). But Twilight DID become a huge phenomenon, and that was largely due to the movies and their cast. Sure, the books were popular before Hollywood went anywhere near them, but without Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, and Taylor Lautner (and his abs), it’s unlikely that the series would have gotten as big as it has. And that, as they say, ain’t nothin’.
In any event, The Hollywood Reporter will be livestreaming the event; tune today in at 1pm ET/10am PT to watch Hollywood history unfold. Do you think the cement will sparkle in the sunlight?
