Camilla Belle Condemns 'Twilight' 'Nonsense'

Camilla Belle Condemns 'Twilight' 'Nonsense'-photo

Do the Twilight franchise's troubles extend beyond its revolving-door policy toward its cast and crew?

In the latest issue of Nylon magazine, 10,000 B.C. actress Camilla Belle—who's been known to share a good time or two with Twilight hunk Robert Pattinson—claims that the movie's stars were put through a grueling "media training" process.

Certainly, a young woman who, as a 19-year-old, acted out a semi-incestuous father-daughter relationship across from high intensity actor Daniel Day-Lewis in The Ballad of Jack and Rose knows about grueling process. And that's what Camilla Belle did.

So she has a right to speak out against grueling where she sees grueling.

"My friend Rob, for that whole Twilight nonsense, the studio was having them take all these classes," says Belle, 22, who's currently thought to be dating 19-year-old Joe Jonas. "It was the most frustrating thing in the world because they want you to speak like someone else, not yourself. It's so silly. And I would be frustrated, too."

Well, to be fair, the media training might have been necessary. Suddenly being thrust into the spotlight no doubt led to a situation where Pattinson, 22, felt a certain degree of nervousness.

And, given that he's now making $12 million per Twilight flick, RPattz can afford to act like it doesn't bother him.

Besides, being made to attend a few media-training classes can't be nearly as irritating as having middle-age rocker women trying to foist their underage spawn upon you.

    [quote=Camilla's a fake]She really needs to shut up. This girl would use anyone if she thought they could make her more famous (hence, the reason she's dating Joe Jonas). I reall hope her career amounts to nothing. She doesn't deserve success. i was thinking the same thing, she is just using them to get attention. i say it works. the first reason i read this article is because its abt twilight. there was another article abt rob and her and i read that too cause thats abt rob, and i only know her cause she is rob's friend otherwise I wou'dn't even know "camilla belle".

    It is pretty standard for movie studios (and record labels) to send their actors (and singers) to media training before promoting their latest projects. This is not a secret. And, Rob has said in past interviews that the studio sent him to media training and that his manager kept getting calls saying the training "wasn't taking" because Rob insisted on being himself. What media training is good for is to help the actor learn how to create soundbytes...we all know that most entertainment TV shows only run 3-4 minutes of an interview, so the training helps the actor focus on telling their story succinctly instead of rambling incoherently. When media training goes overboard, it tries to sap the personality out of the actor and make them a shill. Neither Rob nor Kristen appear to have allowed that to happen...and thank goodness for it. Genuine interviews are fun to read and watch.

    And by the way, is ridiculous have all those teenage girls screaming and crying over a guy who doesnt' even know that you exists, and frankly don't even care! I'l would love to have a chance to talk to him and try to understand why the hell is he an actor, no, even better, ask him why the hell he wanted to play Edward? He read the book, he know what the book is about, he knew what the vampire represented and how he is right? he should be prepared, or an advice: DON'T MAKE THE SEQUEL. OK? than you wont have girls screaming AT you as you said in an interview. Please!!!! somebody send him that! Please! Looks like someone has very strong feelings about a certain actor, it is a very fine line from hate to love.

    Gee, these screaming tweens. I crack up at one reporter's description of his reaction, of being "bewildered" during those planned mobbings. That's probably why his former "magical forest" hair was standing up on end--natural reaction to all the hormonal hysteria.

    They also implanted GPS chips in the Twilight stars' skulls during these "training sessions." LOL!

    haha.. "kristen is a pot head" that is random, but probably true. have you seen her dad? she totally smokes with him yes- isn't it coincidental that rob and camilla have been photographed together, she mentions him in this article and she just happens to have a movie out/coming out from Summit entertainment, the same co. that released twilight? COINCIDENCE? I don't think so.. that's just good PR :) letterstotwilight.com

    Taylor Lautner is much better, Kellan Luntz is better... the real actors in that movie is Niki Reed and Kristen Stweart (specially Nikki, i love her movies)... But "Rpatz"... He suck!

    why camilla is giving this information? is she part of twilight? we all know that she is a friend of rob but does she have to act like she had an authority? she's so desperate of attention. even if she cant avoid the hounding of the paparazzi, she doesnt have the right to comment. poor girl....

    Whatever media training the Twilight leads got, I'm glad they didn't listen. Everyone can see right through fakeness, and they are a delight to watch and hear because it feels real. If they are acting they need an award because that is the most charming and refreshingly honest interviews I have ever seen. To me Camilla Bella doesn't even have the pinky finger of charisma and truth that the Twilight actors show. Their interviews are as enjoyable as watching them in the movie.

    Camilla is talking about Rob so she can get her name in the news for her new movie. Rob, she isn't really your friend. I honestly don't believe the studio or anyone else could "make" or try to "train" Rob Pattinson to do anything he didn't want to do...that's what makes him so cool. His interviews were very natural and real. However, if it's true the studio gave them classes on how to do interviews then it could explain why Kristen seemed to freak out every time someone asked her a question. Perhaps it wasn't covered in class!

    you're supposed to be in character, so it shouldn't be any surprise that the studio expected him to change his presence, speech, etc. people expect a character...not what we see from of the actor's real personality
