"Gossip Cop’s inbox was hit by a flood of questions today concerning an interview “New Moon” director Chris Weitz gave to Empire magazine. A purported “version” of the interview posted on a site called Reel Loop included an alleged “quotation,” attributed to Weitz, that appeared to confirm that co-stars Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart are a real-life couple.
Here’s what we now know:
- The Empire interview is real. What’s actually in the pages of the magazine and on Empire’s web site come from comments Mr. Weitz gave during Comic-Con.
- The final passage Reel Loop “quotes” is complete fabrication. And we’re told Weitz himself is troubled by that, but more about that in a bit.
Here’s the controversial passage:
“Oh, one last thing, I was so joking, New Moon is straight up for the ladies. Jacob is naked during the entire production. Yeah, it was awkward for a bit but we all got used to it. What we didn’t get used to was Javier, the food cart guy. Homie was pant-less…and underwear-less when he served us scrambled eggs. If Kristen Stewart wasn’t dating Robbie, she told me that she would ‘fix his ferris wheel like a drugged-out fairy’…I don’t know what that means either.”
Gossip Cop can confirm what many “Twilight” fans concluded – Chris Weitz never gave those comments. " For the full story click here .
