This August Vanity Fair photograph for a feature on the women of Twilight: Eclipse reminds me of that American Beauty overhead shot of Mena Suvari on a bed of red rose petals. With the exception of blonde Dakota Fanning in the middle, they’re fairly unrecognizable with their 40s crimson gashes.
In the behind-the-scenes video below, Fanning cops to being sweet 16. She and New Moon and Eclipse co-star Kristen Stewart became best friends on The Runaways. Nikki Reed says the Twilight books “suck you in,” without irony. Julia Jones plays werewolf Lea Clearwater. She does have a great head of hair. Bryce Dallas Howard–who has finally shed her baby fat to be as rail thin as every other starlet– plays an “evil vampire.” She used to intern at Vanity Fair. For once, Vanity Fair vet Stewart got the day off.
