Twilight stars snub UK premiere

Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner are not attending the London premiere of the Twilight Saga: Eclipse.
The lead stars of the hit teen vampire movies will send video messages to the red carpet event on July 1, distributors E1 Entertainment have confirmed.
Heartthrob Robert, who plays vampire Edward Cullen, is currently filming his new movie Water For Elephants in Los Angeles.
But Kristen, who plays Bella Swann and is dating Robert off-screen and Taylor, who plays werewolf Jacob Black, have not given reasons for their no-shows.
Twilight's Ashley Greene (Alice Cullen), Kellan Lutz (Emmett Cullen) and Nikki Reed (Rosalie Hale), are among those attending the London premiere.
When Robert, Kristen and Taylor last appeared together in London to promote the second Twilight film New Moon they were mobbed by fans, but Twi-hards are already in uproar over their decision not to be at the Eclipse premiere.
One wrote on a message board: "Yet another example of how they're selling themselves for the money the films make, yet are in no way committed to them nor want to be seen promoting them."
