Jedward steal the show at American Pie premiere

SUPERSTARS Jedward were taking Hollywood actress Tara Reid to kiss the Blarney Stone today, the Herald can reveal.

The American Pie star revealed how they were "like my little brothers" after re-uniting with the madcap pair in Ireland.

She starred with the pair in last year's Celebrity Big Brother and was only too happy to meet up with them in their hometown last night.

Despite the best efforts of organisers, John and Edward Grimes stole the show at last night's premiere of American Pie: The Reunion.

Throngs of awe-struck fans had queued from early on outside the Savoy cinema, just to get a glimpse of the chart-topping duo and caused traffic chaos on O'Connell Street.

"They were screaming even before Jedward had arrived and it was complete pandemonium when they did get there," said a source.

"They were trying to get all the stars of the film to go inside but Tara Reid kept going back outside to pose for pictures with the two boys. She couldn't get over how popular they were in Ireland and loved sharing the limelight with them."

The red carpet was rolled out for leading members of the cast including Seann William Scott, aka Stifler, and the actress who plays Stifler's cougar Mom, Jennifer Coolidge.

But all eyes were on Jedward's pal Tara, who looked stunning in a blue, floor-length Armani gown which fitted her tiny figure to perfection.

She had gotten to know the twins during her time in the Celebrity Big Brother house and they met up again in LA, where she starred in their video 'Wow oh Wow.'

Asked why she had such a connection with them, she added: "I just adore them, they're the smartest kids, they're so talented, I just love them."
