"New Moon" Takes Over Los Angeles: A Complete Look
Making for one of the most-anticipated red carpet moments of the year, the stars were out in full force at the premiere of Summit Entertainment's "The Twilight Saga: New Moon" in Westwood, California on Monday evening (November 16).
Held at the Mann Village Theater, the film's stars including Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, Taylor Lautner, Ashley Greene and Kellan Lutz all turned up to greet their screaming fans.
Joining Rob, Kristen and Taylor on the red carpet were fellow stars including Dakota Fanning, Peter Facinelli, Elizabeth Reaser, Christian Serratos, Emilie de Ravin, Edi Gathegi and Jamie Campbell Bower, as well as author Stephanie Meyer and director Chris Weitz.
Meanwhile, other celebs making their way to the evening's fete included Jennifer Love Hewitt (with Jamie Kennedy), Emma Roberts, Julianne Hough, Joan Jett and 50 Center, among others.
Due out in theaters on November 20, "New Moon" author Stephanie Meyer recently spoke with Oprah about watching her work come to the big screen.
"It is crazy surreal," Meyer tells. "The first time I met any of the actors, we had a dinner kind of just to get to know each other, and they had all been doing test shoots for hair and makeup and costumes all day, so they came in costume to dinner."
Stephanie continues, "And all of a sudden, Carlisle [Peter Facinelli] sits down across from me, and it freaked me out! It's so weird. You have those moments where you're so used to it, and then you'll be sitting there in the cafeteria, and there's 150 extras milling through a scene and who knows how many people involved in the filming, and there's this huge crowd, and you look around and say, 'This is all because I wrote that dream down.' It's very hard to process. ... Weird."
