Words on the street are, Nicole Kidman will be sharing screen with “The Twilight Saga’s New Moon” star Robert Pattinson in “Bel Ami”, but the story apparently turned out to be not a 100% true.

Eminem returned to the spotlight Sunday, spitting the lyrics of his name-dropping singles “We Made You” and “Crack A Bottle” from his hit album Relapse at the MTV Movie Awards. But not long after his performance, he stormed away from his seat in the auditorium when Sacha Baron Cohen, dressed as his flamboyant character Brüno in angel wings and a barely-visible thong, descended on wires and landed face down in the rapper’s lap. Bodyguards pounced and Eminem’s entourage made its exit in what was the most outrageous moment of a night of filled with irreverence. Other examples: host Andy Samberg spoofing box office hits like Slumdog Millionaire (which was nominated six times but came up empty handed) and Star Trek, Amy Poehler accepting the Golden Popcorn trophy for the best “WTF moment” and Forest Whitaker singing an operatic rendition of Samberg’s Emmy Award winning song “D- in a Box.” But the night belonged to the film sensation Twilight, which picked up five awards, including the top prize for best movie. After Shia LaBeouf handed out the best fight award to its stars Robert Pattinson and Cam Gigandet for their tussle in the vampire movie, Pattinson also picked up the award for the best breakthrough performance by a male. Later, he and costar Kristen Stewart teased the crowd by nearly reenacting the kiss between their characters Edward Cullen and Bella Swan while accepting the award for best buss. Stewart also won the prize for best female performance. “I was just about as awkward as you thought I was going to be,” the flustered star said at the podium. Other winners included High School Musical 3: Senior Year’s Ashley Tisdale, who won in the female breakthrough performance category while her costar Zac Efron (see photo) won for best male performance. Jim Carey won for best comedic performance for his role in Yes Man and Heath Ledger was posthumously honored for his legendary performance in The Dark Knight. The best song from a movie went to Miley Cyrus for “The Climb,” which was featured in Hannah Montana: The Movie.
Efron, Kiefer Sutherland and Triumph the Insult Dog presented former MTV Movie Awards host Ben Stiller with the MTV Generation Award, honoring the actor for a career of “selling out box offices without selling out.”

Having made his way back to the States, “Twilight” hunk Robert Pattinson was spotted visiting a studio in Venice, California on Saturday (May 9). Sporting his classic style in a plaid shirt, jeans and ray-ban sunglasses, the Edward Cullen actor stopped inside for a short while before finishing up and heading out to his nearby car. Interestingly enough, actress Emmy Rossum also paid a visit to the very same studio – looking as if the pair may be teaming up for a new movie.

But, it’s not all work and no play for the two. We are told that they have been going out in downtown Vancouver and are getting rave reviews from the locals. There is one restaurant in particular that they have taken a liking to – Glowball Grill & Satay Bar, a restaurant that offers West Coast Regional cuisine that is influenced by flavors from across the globe. A restaurant source said, “Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart have visited us about four times and Robert really loves our Global cocktail. It is a mixture of Martini, Vodka, Alize and fruit juices. He had several of them the last time he was here and he left in a very good mood. Robert also enjoyed our special spaghetti dish which we make with Kobe beef meat-balls – he has ordered it each time he dined with us.” “All the cast members who visited us were very friendly…Robert seemed like a very chilled-out guy and despite the fact he is well on his way to becoming a huge star he was very polite and well-behaved,” says the source.
