"The hair is 75 percent of my performance."
-- Actor Robert Pattinson, who stars as vampire heartthrob Edward Cullen in the screen version of the literary sensation, Twilight. In a Q&A in the current issue of Entertainment Weekly, Pattinson says that for New Moon, the franchise's second installment, he told the filmmakers, "Listen, I need to tone down the hair. Let's make it a little more real, a little bit more...Method."
Pattison's not the only one who understands the power of hair. Pattie has also written about the speculation over how business leaders part their tresses. You can check out Pattinson's "do" when New Moon hits theaters next Friday. --Jessica Shambora
Am I out of it, or what?
Not until last weekend did I hear of the Twilight series. You know it? Twilight is the young-adult phenom that is the sagging book industry's greatest hope since Harry Potter. The last in the three-year-old, four-book series, Breaking Dawn, got a 3.2 million-book run. In the first 24 hours after its release last Saturday, Borders (BGP) reportedly sold 250,000 copies.
