    Morning Mail! Is Robert Pattinson's Post-Twilight Career Award-Worthy?

    Bel Ami, Robert Pattinson MGM

    Dear Ted:
    Thanks for your thoughts on Bel Ami! Here's the real question, though: You could definitely watch this movie several more times than the Twilight movies, right? Do you think this one will finally prove to people that Robert Pattinson is a good actor?
    —B

    Dear Edward Cullen Who?
    Hmmm, good question, B. I thought Rob's performance as George was definitely better than stuffy Edward Cullen. But you know I love seeing my Robsten together, so the Kristen Stewart connection gives Twilight some rewatchability credit. As for proving that he's a top-notch actor, I'll leave that pressure to Cosmopolis. Only a few more days until it debuts at Cannes, after all.

    Dear Ted:
    I've been an avid reader for years. Being a Humane Society volunteer, I am obviously a fan of the work you do for animals. Anyway, my question is this: Is Lea Michele and Cory Monteith's relationship for real? I know people have asked this, but I really feel like it's for PR. Tell me, were there contracts signed and agents called when these two began "dating"? It all just seems too convenient. Anyway, love ya!
    —Maddie

    Dear Glee-lationships:
    It's not totally PR, Madz. There was no signing on any dotted lines or any behind-the-scenes people brought in to mediate. The two are dating on their own free will; the attention they get is just a cherry on top of their smooch sundae.

    Dear Ted:
    I don't watch Idol, but how about Patti LaBelle to replace J.Lo? Melissa Etheridge? Lady Gaga?
    —Norma

    Dear Insert Judge Here:
    That's quite a lot of ideas for someone who won't even be watching the (possible) new judge fill Jennifer Lopez's empty seat. But I like your ideas, N—Gaga made quite the memorable appearance on the show before. And it's the It thing to do for pop stars to join singing competitions these days (ask Britney Spears or Christina Aguilera). Think she'd do it?

    Dear Ted:
    My rescue kitty Mr. T. and I hope you are keeping up with the no smokes. We want you healthy and around for a long time. We have a question about our fave Vicer Jackie Bouffant. Since he has been mentioned a few times lately, I have to ask: Is everything OK with him and the BF? We hope so.
    —Mr.T and Dwac

    Dear Cat Got Your Tongue:
    You really do love Jackie, sir, because you write to me about him enough. I'll say this much: Jackie's love life is fine right now, thank you very much, and I don't see it changing anytime soon. Why would it? Jackie is ready to live the low-key lifestyle now, so it works.

    Dear Ted:
    Is Debbie Doobie Lucy Hale?
    —Pretty Little Vicer?

    Dear A:
    Nope. Though that's one of the better (and closer) guesses I've seen for our out-of-control party gal.

    Dear Ted:
    OK, so first of all, I read the Fifty Shades trilogy because you wouldn't stop talking about it. Really fun. Not sure how they're going to make a movie of it (it's literally all sex, no plot in the first book). But Lily Collins? The girl is lovely, yes. But she is not a good actress. In Mirror Mirror, she got upstaged by the dwarves. And her costumes. Plenty of other good suggestions have come your way. Anyone but Collins. Give it up. She probably wouldn't do the movie anyway with her sugar-sweet image. Still love you, though.
    —Jasmine

    Dear S&Mirror Mirror:
    Not to mention Julia Roberts (for overshadowing, that is). But anyway, it might not be the most realistic casting choice—the chick's naughtiest streak was dating Taylor Lautner, for Twilight's sake—but I think that's the exact reason why it'd be so perfect. It's totally against type…and can you even imagine how the public would react?!
