Twilight Actors Old Enough to Drink - WP
The supernatural love nest, known in the world of young adult novels and blockbuster movies as "Twilight," has become an incredibly prosperous platform for numerous youthful actors and actresses. The 1987 Kiefer Sutherland flick "The Lost Boys" confirmed that the vampire look could become more "rock star" and less "creepers with capes." Now these drinking-aged "Twilight" performers will continue to prove that box office bloodsuckers can also be sexy suckers for love in the 5th installment, "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2."
Before howling at full moons as the shape-shifting wolf Leah Clearwater in the incredibly successful romantic fantasy "Twlight" film series, the beautiful Julia Jones had many amazing accomplishments to be proud of. Jone's exceptional education stemmed from her attendance at The Boston Ballet School as a four year-old, and later continued with her attendance at the first and oldest public school in the United States (the Boston Latin School), and then later followed by her graduation from Columbia University with an English degree. The "Twilight" actress also made time to put her tantalizing looks to work as a model for a few fashionable brands like L'Oreal, Esprit, Levis, and The Gap.
Playing Jessica the gossip queen in the first four "Twilight" movies upgraded Anna Kendrick's Hollywood profile and lead to some super diverse work. Most notably, the "Twilight" alumni actress Anna Kendrick became Natalie Keener, the game-changer that went toe-to-toe with George Clooney's resistant-to-change Ryan Bingham in "Up in the Air"–grabbing an Academy Award nomination no less. Anna Kendrick's youthful exuberance also came in handy by adding sugar and spice to "Scott Pilgrim vs. the World" and "50/50."
If you want to hear a really big understatement, how about saying that the "Twilight" series has been rather good to actress Kristen Stewart? Becoming the leading young lady in all five "Twilight" movies eventually led to Steward being paid a remarkable upfront sum of $25 million for "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn"–Part 1 and Part 2–along with some profit sharing percentages of the gross of both films. Kristen Stewart has also since starred as two popular ladies of pop culture: singer Joan Jett in "The Runaways" and Snow White in "Snow White and the Huntsman."
Performing his role as the supernatural lover boy, Edward Cullen, in every single "Twilight" film has brought British actor Robert Pattinson instant recognition, everywhere from the movie industry to his local grocery store. Pattinson made "Time Magazine"'s prestigious list of The 100 Most Influential People in the World in 2010, and interestingly enough he managed to play both Reese Witherspoon's son in "Vanity Fair" and her lover in "Water for Elephants."
