Nikki Reed designs jewelry for 7 For All Mankind
Posted on Wed, 08 May 2013 05:30
With names like James Franco associated with the brand, it is no wonder that Nikki Reed jumped at the chance to collaborate with the denim mavens at 7 For All Mankind. The stunning and super-candy Twilight actress revealed that hours after getting the call from 7FAM, she was already whipping up sketches based around one of her favorite themes: love. The newlywed (her hubby is singer-songwriter Paul McDonald) definitely has romance on her brain. She recently teamed up with her man by creating and performing original, romantic songs (such as "Now That i have Found You"). But she proves that her creativity does not stop at the big screen or via your iPod by hands-on helping 7FAM designal a five-sneak peek line of baubles ($48-$84), which are available at 7FAM boutiques and 7forallmankind.com.
The jewelry incorporates sterling silver, Swarovski crystals, and rose gold, and they've thematic names like "Starry Knight Earrings" and "Humility Necklace." We chatted with Reed via phone to discuss how jewelry-making runs in her blood and why we may be seeing her on tour with the Hanson brothers soon.

Posted on Fri, 05 Apr 2013 20:32
Renny Harlin is directing the $70 million-budgeted film for Nu Image/Millenium.
Director Renny Harlin has found his Hercules in Kellan Lutz. Lutz, one of the more popular co-stars of The Twilight Saga, has signaled to star in Hercules 3D, Nu Image/Millennium's big-budget take on the Greek demigod. Harlin (Cliffhanger, Die tough 2) is directing the $70 million epic, which is aiming to shoot in May in Bulgaria.
"It takes more than a good physique to painting the most legendary, mythological personality in history - and Kellan has precisely that, personality," Harlin tells The Hollywood Reporter. "He is not afraid to explore the strengths and vulnerabilities of the character, and he impressed me with his ardour and heart."
The film is one of two high-prodossier Hercules films being created by Hollywood studios; the other is an MGM/Paramount co-production to be directed by Brett Ratner. Dwayne Johnson is playing the hero in the rival project.While exact plot details are being kept under wraps, Hercules 3D will have at its centre a love story between the son of Zeus and the mortal princess of Crete, who was promised to his older brother despite her love for Hercules.
Sean Hood, Harlin and Giulio Steve wrote the script. Producing are Les Welden and Danny Lerner, who also teamed to produce Millennium's recent action hit Olympus Has Fallen. Avi Lerner, Trevor Short, John Thompson and Boaz Davidson will executive produce.
"Kellan has the look and charisma that Harlin envisioned for the character," says Davidson. "Renny had him in intellect from the start, and we're really excited to have him on board.” Lutz played Poseidon in Relativity's 2011 epic Immortals. He is repped by Innovative Artists, Zero Gravity Management and Morris Yorn.
"This is a breakout role for Kellan and a chance to grow and shine as an actor," Harlin says.

Stephenie Meyer on Twilight, feminism and true love
Posted on Mon, 11 Mar 2013 22:02
Stephenie Meyer's subconscious has a lot to reply for. nearly 10 years ago, as a young mother in Arizona, she had a dream about an average teenage girl and a beautiful male vampire, sitting in a meadow, missing in conversation about the difficulties of tinheritor relationship.
