Lindsay Lohan kicked off her guest-hosting stint on late-night comedy and chat show Chelsea Lately by poking fun at Kristen Stewart. The Mean Girls star, who ended her 90-day, court-ordered stint in rehab earlier this week (30Jul13), taped her appearance on the programme as vacationing host Chelsea Handler's stand-in on Thursday (01Aug13), and in a teaser clip posted online, she takes aim at the Twilight star.
Discussing the actress' altercation with a paparazzo while walking her dog earlier this week with a panel of comedians, Lohan quipped, "She said, 'You're a piece of s**t. You don't deserve to breathe the same air that I do.' I'm just excited that Kristen Stewart finally showed some emotion."
As the studio audience whooped and cheered, Lohan insisted, "I think she's awesome," and added, "I'm a Kristen Stewart fan," before stating, "I will say this, ofcourse she hates photographers - they caught her kissing a married man in a Mini Cooper."
Stewart's romance with Twilight co-star Robert Pattinson ended last year (12) after she was caught in a car park clinch with her Snow White & The Huntsman director Rupert Sanders.
Kristen Stewart lashed out at a paparazzo during an outing in Los Angeles on Monday (29Jul13), unleashing a foul-mouth tirade while hiding behind a trash can. The often shy Twilight actress confronted a videographer who was filming her out and about with her dog, and hurled a string of expletives in his direction before saying, "F**k off. You’re a piece of sh*t… you don’t deserve to breathe the same air I do.”
She then refused to come out from behind a screen covering a number of industrial garbage containers until an assistant arrived to rescue her in a car.
Stewart has made no secret of her hatred for the media attention in her life, especially after she was caught on camera kissing her married Snow White & The Huntsman director Rupert Sanders, while she was dating her Twilight co-star Robert Pattinson.
The publication of the kissing shots led to the breakdown of her romance with Pattinson.
Pop star Katy Perry reached out to Kristen Stewart to give her side of the story after she was linked to the actress' ex-boyfriend Robert Pattinson. The Twilight co-stars called off their relationship for good earlier this year (13), following Stewart's so-called "indiscretion" with director Rupert Sanders last July (12), and Pattinson was subsequently photographed hanging out with Perry, sparking rumours of a blossoming romance.
Now Perry has revealed she knew of the gossip, and contacted Stewart to assure her she is just friends with Pattinson.
She tells Britain's Elle magazine, "I sent her a text message saying: 'I know you've seen all this stuff but you know I would never disrespect you. I'm not that person.
"'I'm just trying to be a friend to him...'"
A representative for actor Michael Pitt has shot down rumours suggesting he is dating Kristen Stewart following her split from Robert Pattinson. The actress parted ways with her Twilight co-star Pattinson for good in May (13), less than a year after Stewart admitted to an "indiscretion" with her Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders last summer (12).
A U.K. report emerged on Sunday (14Jul13) alleging Stewart had struck up a close relationship with Pitt after meeting the Boardwalk Empire star during Paris Fashion Week in France, but his spokesperson has moved swiftly to dismiss the claims.
The publicist tells Eonline.com, "While we do not comment on our clients' personal lives, please know that there is absolutely no truth whatsoever to this rumour that Michael Pitt and Kirsten Stewart are dating."
Pitt has previously romanced model Jamie Bochert.
Kristen Stewart has struck up a romance with Boardwalk Empire actor Michael Pitt following her split from Robert Pattinson, according to a U.K. report. In May (13), reports suggested the Twlight stars had called off their relationship for good, less than a year after Stewart admitted to an "indiscretion" with director Rupert Sanders last July (12), and now the actress has been linked to Pitt.
Editors at Britain's The Sun report the pair met at Paris Fashion Week in France last month (Jun13) and became close.
A source tells the publication, "Kristen's not over Rob but she's getting there and Michael's helping her through it. She vowed to throw herself into work and be single this summer. But when she met Michael last week, they hit it off. They both hate the spotlight and are smart bookworm types."
Stewart issued a public apology to Pattinson after her involvement with Sanders was exposed last summer (12) and the pair was said to have reconciled. The ordeal ended Sanders' relationship with wife Liberty Ross.
A representative for Elvis Presley's granddaughter Riley Keough has denied rumours she has started dating Robert Pattinson following his split from Kristen Stewart. The Twilight couple parted ways for good earlier this year (13) after briefly giving its relationship another try following Stewart's "momentary indiscretion" with her married Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders.
The British hunk sparked speculation of a new romance after he was photographed driving in Los Angeles on Sunday (30Jun13) with a woman purported to be Keough - but now a spokesperson for Stewart's former Runaways co-star has shut down the claims.
Her rep tells JustJared.com, "Riley isn't dating Rob. And I can confirm that Riley was not photographed at all this weekend."
Keough, the actress daughter of Lisa Marie Presley, was last said to be engaged to Magic Mike star Alex Pettyfer, although reports suggest the couple also split in early 2013.
Rupert Sanders, the filmmaker who wrecked his marriage to model/actress Liberty Ross by falling for Kristen Stewart on the set of Snow White and the Huntsman, has signed on to direct the movie adaptation of Frederick Forsyth's thriller The Kill List.
The movie masterminds who brought the film chronicling Thor Heyerdal's 1947 Pacific-crossing adventure to the big screen are set to hit the high seas again for the fifth Pirates Of The Caribbean blockbuster. Kon-Tiki directors Joachim Roenning and Espen Sandberg have boarded the Disney franchise for a new movie that is slated to hit cinemas in July, 2015.
The Norweigan duo reportedly beat out Snow White & The Huntsman's Rupert Sanders for the job of directing Johnny Depp.
Action adventure movie Kon-Tiki, about legendary explorer Heyerdal's bid to cross the Pacific Ocean on a wooden raft, landed Ronning and Sandberg Oscar nominations for Best Foreign Film.
Bad news for Twilight fans: the franchise's stars Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart have reportedly broken up. People reports the news that after over three years of dating, the duo has called things off entirely after spending the last several days apart.
Just a few weeks ago, the couple appeared to be operating smoothly. They were spotted out together in New York City following the Met Gala earlier this month, and then reportedly flew back to Los Angeles together.
But, it's in LA that things reportedly started to go sour. Stewart reportedly didn't take part in Pattinson's 27th birthday celebrations on May 13. "He had friends over at his house, but Kristen was not part of the celebration," a source tells People. "For the past few days, they have not spent any time together."
This rumored breakup comes nearly a year after pictures revealed Stewart carrying on a hot and steamy affair with her Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders. She openly apologized to Pattinson for cheating on him, and the two seemed to be reunited for several months. "I'm deeply sorry for the hurt and embarrassment I've caused to those close to me and everyone this has affected," Stewart said in a statement. "This momentary indiscretion has jeopardized the most important thing in my life, the person I love and respect the most, Rob. I love him, I love him, I'm so sorry."
Unfortunately, it doesn't sound like Pattison and Stewart were able to get back on track after that scandal rocked their relationship.

Twilight couple Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson have called off their romance, according to a U.S. report. The Hollywood stars have decided to go their separate ways after three years of dating, reports People magazine.
The split news comes after Pattinson allegedly pulled out of celebrating his 27th birthday on 13 May (13) with Stewart, who is said to have planned a party for him.
Just days before the British hunk's birthday, the pair appeared to be going strong as they partied together after the Costume Institute Gala in New York on 8 May (13) and they also flew back to Los Angeles at each other's side on 8 May (13).
Their on/off relationship has been dogged by scandal - the actress stunned fans after admitting to an "indiscretion" with director Rupert Sanders last July (12). The ordeal ended Sanders' relationship with wife Liberty Ross and led Stewart to issue a public apology to Pattinson.
Made his name in entertainment industry by directing elaborate, award-winning commercials
Grew up in the Fulham section of London, England
Made feature directorial debut with adventure thriller "Snow White and the Huntsman," starring Charlize Theron and Kristen Stewart
While he was an accomplished commercial director in his native England, it was an illicit affair with an American movie star that thrust Rupert Sanders into the spotlight. Sanders first made waves in Hollywood when he directed "Snow White and the Huntsman" (2012), a modern and dark retelling of the classic fairytale about an evil queen (Charlize Theron) determined to kill a young princess (Kristen Stewart) who was deemed the fairest in the land. As was often the case with big-budget films with big-name talent, Sanders' directorial feature debut was a blockbuster hit. Unfortunately, the shocking news that he had an affair with the much younger Stewart overshadowed the film's success, making it a kind of tainted product. The tryst heard 'round the world went public in July 2012 after incriminating photographs of Sanders, a married man with two children, and Stewart, in a relationship with her "Twilight" co-star Robert Pattinson, surfaced, showing them in a number of comprising positions in secluded spots around Los Angeles. Sanders wasted no time issuing a public apology to his wife and children, yet the damage that the cheating scandal inflicted upon his personal life lingered, and no doubt made it difficult for him to regain the public's respect as an actually promising filmmaker.<p>Rupert Sanders was born on March 16, 1971 in Westminster, London, England. His mother, Thalia Sanders, ran a doll's house shop in Fulham, and his father, Michael Sanders, was a surgeon. Sanders, who had a degree in graphic design, launched his career directing television commercials for Nike, Adidas, Xbox, and Guinness, as well as a commercial for the video game "Halo 3: ODST" (2009), which won awards at the Cannes Lions International Advertising Festival. With his commercials creating major buzz in his native England, he landed a meeting with American producer Joe Roth, who gave the first-time film director his biggest break yet by offering him the 2012 epic fantasy-adventure "Snow White and the Huntsman," based on the German tale by the Brothers Grimm. A modern and decidedly darker twist to the classic fairytale, "Snow White and the Huntsman" which ultimately starred Charlize Theron as the evil stepmother queen, Kristen Stewart as the princess who is unknowingly threatening her reign of terror, and Chris Hemsworth as the man whom the queen orders to kill Snow White. The movie also featured Sanders' wife, Liberty Ross, a British model who played Snow White's mother.<p>In spite of receiving mixed critical reviews, the film was a commercial success, reportedly taking in more than $380 million worldwide. A few months after its release, however, the film's popularity was quickly overshadowed by shocking news that Sanders had had an affair with his female lead, Stewart. At the time of the affair, Sanders, who was 41, was married to Ross, with whom he had two children. Stewart, who was then 22, was in a longtime relationship with British actor Robert Pattinson, her "Twilight" co-star in five blockbuster films. The scandal spread like wildfire the summer of 2012 after <i>Us Weekly</i> published incriminating photographs of Sanders and Stewart making out in various public places around Los Angeles. Reportedly taken on July 17, the photos showed Sanders and Stewart parking in a rundown area where they were seen "kissing like crazy," according to the paparazzi photographer via <i>Us Weekly</i>.<p>A day after the scandal broke, Sanders issued a public apology to his wife and two young children. In a statement to <i>People</i> magazine, the director said, "I am utterly distraught about the pain I have caused my family. My beautiful wife and heavenly children are all I have in this world. I love them with all my heart." Stewart issued a similar public apology to Pattinson, calling her fling with Sanders a "momentary indiscretion." Sanders' wife, after being blindsided with the news, went on a Twitter rant before closing her account with a succinct, "Wow." While news of his illicit affair seemed to have faded months later, Sanders rekindled controversy once again after the September release of the DVD version of "Snow White and the Huntsman." In the director's commentary, Sanders reportedly gushed over Stewart's performance in the film, saying she was "amazing" and "flawless."<p><i>By Candy Cuenco</i>
