If you're in any of the Twilight movies you'd better be ready for the insane media frenzy that comes with it.
Taylor Lautner seems to handle it like a champ, even if he's now trying to be incognito with girlfriend Taylor Swift. And we think Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart are finally figuring out how to get a grip on all the attention (it helps that they go through it together).
But what about the other stars in the film?
We hear the pressure may be trickling down to press-tour newbie Bryce Dallas Howard...
We're told Rachelle Lefevre's replacement is taking precautions to be camera-ready in time for her close-ups.
A source close to the redheaded starlet says she is trying to drop 20 pounds in time for the Eclipse press tour, scheduled around the June 2010 release date. The method, our in-the-know insider spills, is a detox cleanse requiring her to avoid all oils—in her system and on the exterior of her body.
"Bryce began her detox about two weeks ago, and it will last about 40 days," says our source with intimate knowledge on the sitch. "She does this twice a year to get rid of all the bad toxins in her body, and of course, as a weight-loss system. She is starting to diet early because she knows the press tour is going to be grueling and that a lot of the media focus and attention will be on her."
Howard's rep denies she is doing this extreme of a cleanse.
"Bryce is not looking to lose 20 pounds," says her rep, Stephen Huvane. "She does cleanse from time to time, but the one you describe is not at all what she has done in the past or has any plans to do."
Still, Howard's pal insists she has started the diet, which prohibits her from consuming any oil products and from using any oil based beauty supplements—including lip gloss!
"It would be hard for the average person to do it, but once Bryce sets her mind to something, she does it."
But Howard, 28, is very careful to keep her diet safe. The insider adds that she has always been health-conscious and was previously a strict vegan, but switched to a vegetarian diet in 2006 while she was pregnant.
"Bryce is always taking precautionary steps for her heath since her schedule is consistently nonstop," says our source. "She can't afford to be sick while working 16-hour days."
We think BDH is a beautiful girl—no need to drop 20 pounds sweetie! For any of these gals who feel stressed just think: You get to work with R.Pattz for years to come.
Take your frustrations out in other ways. We're sure Kristen is!
No wonder Bryce is stressed! Look at the New Moon World Tour Madness!
