Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson Top Our List Of Hollywood’s Highest-Grossing Romantic Couples
Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, when movie lovers’ thoughts turn to romance films. Older folks might think of putting on Casablanca; Gen X’ers, Say Anything. What does it say about the millennial generation that the most popular love story of their time involves a young lady, a vampire and a werewolf?
That’s why Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson land at the top of our list of Hollywood’s Highest-Grossing Romantic Couples. We looked at the top-grossing romantic movies of the last three years. Twilight was by far the biggest box office winner over that period, earning $1.17 billion.
The fact that we get to track the couple’s off-screen romance along with their on-screen love just adds to the overall romance of the films. The couple is reportedly back together after breaking up over Stewart’s fling with the married director of her film Snow White and the Huntsman.
Pattinson is also a member of the 10th place couple on our list alongside Reese Witherspoon. Their film Water for Elephants earned $59 million in the U.S. in 2011. Those aren’t Twilight numbers, but considering that the movie brought in an extra $58 million internationally and only cost $38 million to make, it was a small hit.

It seems that Uggie the dog can add writing to his list of many talents, as he is releasing a book about his Hollywood life, entitled ‘Uggie – My Story’. In it, he dishes about working with Miss Reese on Water For Elephants, and recalls his experiences with RPattz on the same film
Reese Witherspoon: His Water for Elephants co-star loomed large from their first day on set.
“I adored her. On or off screen, the atmosphere between us was electrically charged,” writes Uggie. “Recently divorced and with two small children, Miss W was surely in need of a new leading man in her life?”
Robert Pattinson: Uggie confesses that his Water for Elephants co-star “broke into giggles” over the dog’s loud snoring. There was clearly some on-set jealousy.
“I never really got what the fuss was over Mr. P by the way (or RPattz, as his fans call him),” Uggie writes. “On any given day there’d be hordes of young female humans screaming for him at the studio gates, but the supposedly smoldering biped couldn’t even skateboard as well as me.” Meow!

During our Birthday Special updates a few weeks ago I uploaded a ton of HQs from the Water For Elephants New York premiere, and today I have added the rest of the photos I had from that event – another 140+, all in HQ! I have to admit that I think this look has overtaken the Just Like Heaven premiere as my all-time favourite Reese look – she just looks perfect here, I think! I adore her Jason Wu dress.
I also want to say a quick but big thank you to those of you that have posted comments here recently – I’m just going through them and replying. I really love reading your thoughts on Reese and our updates here, and I appreciate you taking the time to comment. I’m glad you enjoyed our Birthday Special!
Enjoy all the fantastic new HQ photos in the Gallery:

Again thanks to my wonderful friend Maria, I’ve added over 1,200 HD screencaptures from Water For Elephants, as well as over 700 HD caps from the DVD extras. While this isn’t my favourite movie, Reese does look so gorgeous in it – the 1920′s style really suits her, I love her hair and make-up! The screencaptures are just stunning and in perfect quality – there really are so many great shots in there, you’ll want to take your time browsing them all! Big, big thanks to Maria again for helping us out with these.

‘The Artist’ And 20 Other Films Put Costumes On Display
To create the Oscar-nominated costumes for “The Artist,” designer Mark Bridges had to think in both color and black and white.
“Things that you wouldn’t notice in color suddenly showed up when it became black and white,” he said. “A simple beaded flapper dress suddenly became maternity wear.”
The costumes from “The Artist”, a black-and-white silent film, can be seen in all their brilliant colors at the FIDM Museum & Galleries 20th annual Art of Motion Picture Costume Design Exhibit, which is on view until April 28 at the downtown Los Angeles
The nominees’ work stands among other outstanding attire from the past year’s films. There is the pink beaded performance dress Reese Witherspoon wore in “Water for Elephants” and Viola Davis’ maid’s uniform from “The Help,” plus the armor from “Thor,” suits from “J. Edgar” and cowboy clothing from “Cowboys & Aliens.”

Jean Dujardin, Berenice Bejo and cast of “The Artist” have been receiving rave reviews and awards nods for their black and white silent film, but a certain furry, four-legged actor keeps stealing the show – Uggie the Dog!
While Hollywood stars and audiences alike have fallen in love with the pup, Uggie only has eyes for one blond beauty.
“He likes Reese Witherspoon,” dog trainer/Uggie’s owner Owen Van Muller revealed to Billy Bush and Kit hoover on Wednesday’s Access Hollywood Live. “They worked together [in ‘Water for Elephants’] and he just wanted to kiss her every time. He’s in love with Reese.” Owen rescued Uggie – a Jack Russell Terrier – when he was just “8 or 9 months old,” and the pup’s talent became evident very quickly.
“When did you know he had star potential?” Kit asked.
“Pretty soon after I got him because he was very, very smart, paid a lot of attention, loved to train, loved to work,” Owen answered.
Despite Uggie’s growing fan base, Owen said “The Artist” was the pup’s final feature film.
“He’s pretty much retired. He’s almost 10 years old and I really don’t want to put him through long hours anymore,” Owen said. “We were working 12, 15 hours a day in ‘The Artist.’”
Adding, “Maybe little things here and there, a couple of hours or something, would be fine, because he actually loves doing this work, but no more long hours.”
In addition to her successes as an actress and her respectable reputation, Reese Witherspoon is the envy of millions of Twilighters after working alongside superstar heartthrob Robert Pattinson in not one, but two films — not to mention the fact that she’s kissed him too.
When MTV News caught up with Witherspoon recently as part of “MTV First: This Means War,” we asked her the first thing that comes to mind when she thinks of her “Water for Elephants” and “Vanity Fair” co-star.
“I would say [he is] the hardest-working person I’ve ever worked with, honestly,” she said. “[He's] professional, hard-working, so appreciative, more grateful than I’ve ever seen anyone for where he is in life.”
Given the fact that Witherspoon has been in the business for decades and experienced every facet of being famous, we asked her to weigh in on the current fan frenzy that surrounds Pattinson wherever he goes and how it may or may not affect a person.

Water For Elephants
Starring Robert Pattinson and Reese Witherspoon, escape to a world of forbidden love, danger and intrigue for a great night in this autumn with Water for Elephants (2011) released on Blu-ray Triple Play on 5th September from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment.
Water for Elephants tells the powerful and emotional story of two people who fall in love against all odds, set in the alluring and enigmatic world of a travelling circus.
Heartthrob Pattinson (Twilight) stars as Jacob, a penniless and recently-orphaned veterinary school student, who parlays his expertise with animals into a job with a second-rate travelling circus. Jacob falls in love with the star performer and Circus owner’s wife Marlena, played by Academy Award winner Witherspoon (Walk The Line). Against all odds – including the wrath of Marlena’s husband August, the charismatic but unbalanced circus ringmaster portrayed by Christoph Waltz (Inglourious Basterds) – Jacob saves Marlena from an unhappy life and they find lifelong love, amidst the world of the Big Top.
Based on the international best-selling novel by Sara Gruen (#1New York Times) and directed by Francis Lawrence (I Am Legend), the Blu-ray Triple Play is packed with special features including deleted scenes, featurettes and a Robert Pattinson Spotlight.
