It's called Mattlin Era
You’re quite the triple threat (actress, singer, designer). Did you find this foray into jewelry to be a daunting process?
“No, I’ve always had a desire to design. My great grandmother on my father’s side was a jewelry designer and my grandmother is a ceramic-tile muralist; very much a pioneer in her own right. My whole family is filled with artists, actually — my brother is a painter, my dad is sculptor, and my mom is a beautician. I love creating and I wanted to make something tangible that I could hold and wear. Designing jewelry is a totally different form of expression. I actually do this all myself and someone later helps me draw to scale. When I got the call to do the collaboration with 7 For All Mankind, I was so excited. The phone call came at 8am; by 2pm I had a ton of drawings already done.”
You and Paul sing and write songs together. Does he also get a say in the jewelry line?
“With the first collection, I was constantly bouncing ideas off of him. He loves to be involved in everything I do, down to what I wear everyday. We bounce everything off each other.”
What’s the inspiration behind the collaboration?
“It’s all about love, so it just fits with what my life is right now. All Paul and I write about is love, so parts of about 20 little love notes I wrote are engraved on some of the jewelry.”
David Cronenberg's latest project with Pattinson
However, despite the difficulties, Cronenberg’s new project has been green-lit and is set to star Robert Pattinson in the lead role, along with Julianne Moore, John Cusack and Sarah Gadon. Filming will begin in Toronto and Los Angeles in July of this year.
Pattinson has been attached to the project almost since its inception and, as was the case with Cronenberg’s 2012 thriller Cosmopolis, it’s largely thanks to the involvement of the highly bankable star that Maps to the Stars has received funding and is heading into production.
Noticeably absent from this cast list is Viggo Mortensen, who was attached to Maps to the Stars for almost as long as Pattinson was. It’s likely that the project’s spell in development limbo meant that Mortensen ended up with scheduling conflicts that prevented him from staying committed, as the actor has since signed on to produce and star in Argentinian director Lisandro Alonso’s new drama.
Hmm, Edward or Caius?

[Maddox's] subsequent book, “Mission: Blacklist #1,” is the basis for the new movie. He spoke recently before an audience of students at Oklahoma University, from which he graduated.
“Somebody wants to make a movie about my story – it’s very exciting,” Maddox told the crowd of about 300 in Oklahoma Memorial Union’s Molly Shi Boren Ballroom, according to a campus report.
Maddox said he has already met and gotten to know Pattinson, and is more than satisfied that the “Twilight” hunk will be playing him in the movie.
“He’s a great guy. When they brought his name up to me, I had never heard of him before,” he said. “I don’t believe in vampire movies and stories. I just didn’t know who he was.”
Maddox said he wore the same blue shirt for months while he searched for the Iraqi dictator near his hometown of Takrit. The shirt has a bigmouth bass embossed on it, Velcro pockets… and bloodstains.
“I’ve still got it [the shirt.] I think Rob is gonna wear it in the movie,” Maddox said.

He wins the only 'Breaking Dawn, Part 2' award
"I put on a little weight," he joked to MTV News after the show. "I turned 21, recently, a couple months ago. The drinking just ... it was overboard. Metabolism stopped. It just went straight to the abdomen."
But Taylor planned the stunt because, you know, it's so hard to say goodbye to yesterday, and he just didn't want to take the award too seriously. "One, I was so shocked to find out that the award was being televised. I was like, 'Wait, Best Shirtless Performance is gonna be on TV?' So I was like, I had to do something funny," he said.
