"I have a strange variation of things in my house on display, I have a suit of armour (from Snow White and the Huntsman), I have a pink G-string from (stripper movie) Welcome to the Rileys... I have the rings that she (my Twilight character Bella) wore throughout the series." Actress Kristen Stewart keeps at least one prop from each of her films.

Forget about Bella and Edward Cullen. Sure, we were fascinated with their love story as the Twilight saga unfolded on-screen — but did you ever wonder what might happen if the vampires maybe weren't the stars of the show? Hollywood.com got the chance to chat with actor Chaske Spencer, who plays werewolf Sam Uley in the franchise, and Spencer came up with his own version of Twilight starring his werewolf character. From a werewolf wedding to the werewolf bachelor party, this is Sam's love story as told by Spencer:
(Italics are Hollywood.com's insertions.)
Title: Fifty Shades of Hair
Setting: We’d stick to Vancouver. Vancouver is gorgeous. I love Vancouver.
Part One: Boy Meets Girl
Once upon a time, there was a guy named Sam Uley. He was dating this girl, Emily. They were really having a great time. They were parking, making out, and just having a great young lovers' time. But, next thing you know, he started to change because those damn Cullens started showing up. He didn’t understand what was going on so he went to investigate, and he came to find out through legends and other tales that he happened to be a werewolf, and he hated it.
Then one day, he just flipped out. He broke up with and broke little Emily’s heart because he fell in love with her cousin. But that didn't last long. He breaks up with the cousin. And she becomes devastated because she ends up becoming a werewolf. Next thing you know, he’s back with Emily.
Now it's Emily's turn. He accidentally slashes her face during a shape-shifting period. And she forgave him. She probably has some codependency issues, maybe some father issues. But she gets back together with him and they live happily ever after with him until the Cullens show up.
Next thing you know, his boy Jacob is starting to shift and Jacob just screws everything up. He fell In love with Bella and Bella is in love with Edward and we get caught up in the middle. Sam would just assume they all move away and Jacob get over it because he liked his life before that. It was very peaceful. But no, he’s got to go in and do his job to protect the treaty, honor the treaty. Once he's done with Jacob and Bella's drama, it's back to Sam's love story.
Part 2: The Bachelor Party
Now back to Sam and Emily. They decide to take the next step and become husband and wife, but before that can happen, the boys must celebrate. And where else do boys go for some adult entertainment than a strip club?
I think we would probably go down to Seattle and hang out at Deja Vu on an off night. When it’s not crowded, we’d rent the whole place out. We’d stick to the humans as strippers. It would definitely be a party. Maybe rent a jet and go to France or something.
Of course, Sam would want some Volturi to show up to liven the party.
Part 3: The Wedding
There would be a lot of KFC, orange Sunkist, and probably a lot of hip hop music. That’s how we’d throw it down. Then we’d have the Cullens over. Everyone would be happy. Now that we are all bonded and friends now, we’d have a good throw down. There would be horseshoe throwing, shape shifting, seeing who can outrun each other. And Sam would pick Paul as his best man. All the folks would be there. It would be something out of like Guns N' Roses "November Rain."
Part 4: The Birth Scene
That would be cool to have little wolf kids running around. But there wouldn't be a birth scene like in Breaking Dawn - Part 1. That would be gross. I don’t know if I could do that. I have a hard time with births, just watching them on the History Channel. I’d probably cut right through it. You would just see her holding the kid.
Part 5: The Epic Battle
Of course a Twilight spin-off concludes with a good fight scene. There would be a lot more fighting. There would be a thousand more fights. We’d take on everything. Then somewhere along the way, it would just turn into a whole different film all together. Let’s throw some aliens in there too. They come down. In one scene, the wolf pack goes against the aliens and we all had to fight in the Egyptian pyramids. The the volturi and all the other vampires from all over the world come come in at the last minute to save our asses. We think we’re down, we’re getting beat. But the vampires come in and help us save the day.
We eat at the local buffet. Settle down. Occasionally I’ll go down to Palm Springs, do a little vacation there. Leave the kids. And Sam just wants to sit on his porch and smoke on his pipe and chill out. They live happily ever after.
The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2 drops in theaters Nov. 16.

On Nov. 16, Twilight fans around the world will say goodbye to their favorite saga as the epic finale, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 2 hits theaters. Twilight fans – self-proclaimed Twihards – are some of the most passionate and driven fans any genre could ever hope to see. Before the final Twilight movie hits theaters with a worldwide event, Hollywood.com decided to get into the mindset of a Twihard by profiling one of Twilight’s biggest fans.
Meet Jamie. A 28-year-old NYC resident originally from Florida, Jamie is Hollywood.com's featured Twihard. We'll be getting to know her and learning all about what a day in the life of a Twihard is like over the next two weeks. We begin by focusing on the first days of her life as a Twihard.
Jamie didn’t want to read Twilight the first time she heard of the book. “It’s funny," she says. "My sister handed me this book that I was like, 'It’s too big. No, I don’t want to read this. I don’t really like reading.'”
After refusing to read it, Jamie didn’t think about Twilight again — until the trailer for the 2008 film adaptation was released. Watching the spot, Jamie saw a familiar face from a franchise she knew and loved: Harry Potter's Robert Pattinson, who played Cedric Diggory in 2005's Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. “I said to my sister, 'It’s Cedric Diggory’s new movie!'” Jamie says. “And she said, 'Yeah, that’s the book I was telling you about.' So now I was like, I have to read this book. I read all the Harry Potter series ... So I go through the first one and I literally just went through it right away.”
After sinking her teeth into the first book, Jamie was hooked. But she hit a snag when it came to reading the second book. Turns out, her sister had lent out New Moon to a friend. Before the time of ebooks, Kindles and iPads, hard copies were the only way of the game. And patience is not quite a virtue when it comes to Twilight fans. “I said to my sister, you have to get it back because I need to read the second one,” Jamie says. “Call your friend and tell her to give it back because I have to start reading the second one.”
Once she got the second book back, Jamie devoured Eclipse... and then came the long wait for the release of Breaking Dawn. “That was hard because you kind of just rip through them,” Jamie says. “And then when Breaking Dawn came out, I went out at midnight to get the book. I dragged my friend who had no idea what it was so we could go get the book. I stayed up half the night reading it.”
Jamie successfully finished reading the entire franchise in one summer. She was officially a Twihard. “It happened so fast,” Jamie says. “Just instantly there was this mysterious guy that you are so into. And I was happy with how [Bella and Edward] ended up [together]."
But anyone with a stake (ha) in the franchise is prone to nit-picking. Even super-fan Jamie, who criticized Breaking Dawn for not completely representing vampire culture. "There were some things missing from the book," she says. "I do love the whole idea of vampires but I did not like the idea that there wasn’t enough mortality. I think that the whole idea of vampires is that vampires kill, and there’s this war going on, so I was expecting a little more violence from the book.”
Jamie understands why, however, there was so little violence (and, based on trailers for the upcoming Breaking Dawn — Part 2, her taste for blood may just be fulfilled). “I knew it was a Mormon woman writing it who didn’t even condone them drinking soda and what have you, but I did expect a little more from that,” Jamie says.
Another one of Jamie's criticism? Since Twihards are insatiable, there can never be too many Twilight novels. “I had hoped that they would’ve had a little more time together as young lovers. [But] then wham, bam there’s this child," she says. "So I think that maybe it could have gone on for another book without the kid, and then they could have had the kid in the fifth book.”
Stay tuned to read more about Hollywood.com's Twihard, Jamie Jamie, as A Day in the Life of a Twihard series continues on Nov. 9.

New ‘Star Wars VII’: What to Expect
November 06, 2012 5:52am EST
Let the Twilight promotions begin for the last time! With the end of an era nearing as the the final movie of the franchise — The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2 — drops in theaters on Nov. 16, stars Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart made the late night rounds Monday night to promote the final piece. But instead of showing up on one late night show together, the on-and-off again couple appeared on two different programs: Stewart visiting Jay Leno to talk about vampire contacts and Bella relics, while Pattinson chatted with Jimmy Kimmel about his kissing style.
Here's what you missed last night on late night TV:
Late Night With Jimmy Fallon
Fallon played Egg Russian Roulette with Jason Sudeikis.
Jimmy Kimmel LIVE!
Even though the final Twilight movie premieres this month, Robert Pattinson admitted to Kimmel that he will be talking about playing Edward Cullen for a very long time. "I'll probably be talking about it for the rest of my life," he said. And Pattinson even hopes that they will add another movie onto the franchise. On a non-Twilight note, Pattinson explained that he doesn't care that he doesn't get to vote for the next American President. "I don't like any kind of responsibility," he said. "I would vote for people like me to not be able to vote." And for all the girls out there who dream of locking lips with this sexy vampire, Pattinson decided to share his thoughts on his kissing technique. "I have such extraordinarily loud little pecks," he said. "It sounds like I'm walking around in Wellies [rain boots]. My lip is like a vacuum." Does that turn you on?
Late Show With David Letterman
Ricky Gervais told Letterman about the Mormon religion. "Mormonism was started by this guy, Joseph Smith, who was basically a married man, and he came home one day and he said to his wife, 'I just found a bit of the Bible that no one's seen before,'" Gervais said. "She went, 'What does it say?' 'It says I should have other women.'"
The Tonight Show With Jay Leno
While Kristen Stewart jokingly first told Leno that she won't miss Twilight — she quickly switched her stand. "There's a certain tone that Twilight sets for all of us," she explained. "Doesn't matter where we are, whether we are promoting it or on set, it doesn't matter how much time goes on in between. That's now gone forever." Stewart also gushed about the the items she takes from the sets of her movies to remember the time she spent working on them. From Twilight, she took some of Bella's rings, but that's not the most odd item she has removed from a movie set. "I have a strange variation of things in my house on display," she said. I have a suit of armor. I have a pink g-string from 'Welcome to the Rileys.'" Stewart also shared a story about some strange items she picked up on a recent trip to Tokyo. "There were masks next to really weird sex toys next to fish flavored tootsie rolls," she said. "I bought it all."
In addition, Stewart talked about the red contacts she has to wear in Breaking Dawn - Part 2. "It is definitely a dim, tunnel vision, sticky, cloudy, really awfully annoying," she said. "People generally say that they think that our vampires look like they are in pain. They are." Stewart also admitted that she thinks that they made her repeat her some of her physical stunts even though they probably used the first take. That's annoying.
Sarah Silverman played with her Wreck-It Ralph Vanellope doll on Conan Monday night. And when she made the doll talk, it spouted out this sentence, "I have oral herpes." Hopefully that doll doesn't say such things in real life. That wouldn't really be a toy appropriate for children.

Fanning, who also starred with Stewart in Joan Jett biopic The Runaways, spoke out in support of her friend who was snapped kissing the director in July (12) behind the back of her long-term boyfriend Robert Pattinson.
The teen actress criticised the public backlash from the scandal and defended her co-star's right to privacy.
She tells InStyle magazine, "Everyone thinks they have the right to, you know, publicise the struggles and sadness and heartbreak and all of that... It's like, 'Why do you think you are the authority to judge people's experiences?'."
Stewart issued a public apology after the pictures were published and insisted she was "deeply sorry" for her "momentary indiscretion".
November 05, 2012 5:53am EST
A very small percentage of this country is undecided on Kristen Stewart. You've got the Twilight fanatics who live and breath the blood of Bella Swan. And then there's the other end of the spectrum: the loathers of Stewart. Those who hate her vampirious series, her turn in Snow White and the Huntsman, or who fell off her bandwagon following her highly publicized affair with director Rupert Sanders. You either love her or you hate her. And she'll be enjoying the company of a figure of similar esteem in the developing drama film Focus, that figure being Ben Affleck.
Variety reports that Stewart is joining the already cast Affleck in the Warner Bros. con artist picture; she'll be playing a criminal novice who teams up with a seasoned scammer (Affleck), forming perhaps the most polarizing big screen duo in history. Just as Kristen Stewart is a love-or-hate phenomenon, Affleck is the sort who has historically drawn a pretty split public opinion. As an actor, Affleck has earned a good deal of harsh criticism — think back on his post-millennium span: he headlined the likes of Daredevil, Gigli, Jersey Girl, Surviving Christmas. The idea of a Ben Affleck movie was a joke to many. But then, the performer set himself behind the camera, and a new wave of appreciation for the Boston-born filmmaker hit the world. His recent release Argo is a perfect testament to the Affleck love that has come to be.
In short, Focus isn't really investing in safe bets. It's more of a risk-taker. Stewart and Affleck are both wild cards, and their center stage partnership should reap both a whole lot of love and a whole lot of hate.

The Brit spent a wild 15 minutes with his co-stars Taylor Lautner and Kristen Stewart soaking up the atmosphere in the sporting mecca and, as he prepares to bid farewell to the franchise that turned him into a superstar, he has come to realise he will never experience anything like it again.
He tells WENN, "We went to Munich after the third movie and the entire Olympic stadium was filled with fans. It was supposed to be a Q&A (question-and-answer session) with me, Kristen and Taylor and we just stood in the middle of this stadium with 30,000 people just screaming.
"We just stood there for 15 minutes and it was absolutely bizarre; there is no way to ever compute it."
November 04, 2012 1:30pm EST
Reed, a firm believer in karma, refused to steal anything from the set and only accepted the footwear when Stewart insisted on gifting them to her.
And now she has no idea what to do with them.
She tells WENN, "I believe too much in karma but I should've just stolen something! I mean why not, as far as I know we're not making any more of these movies. The only thing I have is my baseball shoes from the first film and I was too afraid to take them and Kristen went back to do reshoots and she brought them home for me.
"I've never worn them because they're covered in mud and I think it's wrong to wash the mud off! I can't wear muddy shoes so they live in a box and I don't know what to do with them."
Meanwhile, Stewart took home the rings her character Bella wears in the Twilight films, insisting they have huge personal value to her.
She says, "They were really important to me. Her mother gives her a moon ring in the beginning which fully and completely reminds me of (director) Catherine Hardwicke every time I look at it. I kept the engagement ring too. Those are extremely important to me. I love those rings."
November 03, 2012 6:15am EST
"I think there are a hundred different avenues that it could go down... but I think if anything else happens to Bella and Edward at this point, I'm gonna be like, 'I don't care, just kill 'em...' I think at this point they deserve their happiness. It's like, 'Just leave them be now'." Kristen Stewart can't imagine reprising her role as Bella in any future Twilight movies.
November 02, 2012 11:00am EST
The Twilight star was snapped wearing a short pink wig and sunglasses while celebrating the spooky holiday at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery with Robert Pattinson on Wednesday (31Oct12), fuelling speculation the couple has reconciled following a summer split (12) due to Stewart's "indiscretion" with married director Rupert Sanders.
And during an interview with MTV.com on Thursday (01Nov12), the actress revealed her outfit was a tribute to Portman: "I love Closer. (It's) one of my favourite movies. If you've seen that, that's one aspect of (Portman's) character. She changes a lot in that movie."
Meanwhile, Pattinson wore a creepy clear mask with bushy eyebrows for the Halloween bash, and the British hunk confesses he picked up the prop at a local convenience store at the last minute.
He joked, "I chose someone who is just genuinely terrifying. It was a $3 mask from a 7-Eleven."
