Taylor Lautner in Pop Culture Movie Moments of 2010!

A few times a year, movies are able to transcend their basic purpose as escapist entertainment by making their mark on pop culture, from fashion and hairstyle statements to quotable dialogue, controversial themes and memorable performances, capturing the zeitgeist, or spirit of the times.

Here's alook back at 2010 and the movies that got people talking:

'Valentine's Day' (February 12) – Director Garry Marshall's ensemble romantic comedy may have fizzled at the box office like a bad date, but all eyes -- and tabloids -- were on cute couple Taylor Swift and Taylor Lautner, who dated briefly as a result of working together.


'The Twilight Saga: Eclipse' (June 30) Twi-hards continued to line up in droves, beginning with midnight screenings, to drink in the third chapter of the Stephenie Meyer vamps vs. werewolves saga this summer. The world got plenty of shirtless shots of Taylor Lautner, not to mention the big-screen 'Twilight' parody 'Vampires Suck.'

Kristen Stewart admits Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner and her characters are messed up!

Kristen Stewart may be the envy of women around the world as the on-and-off screen girlfriend of Robert Pattinson, but they actress admits their “Twilight” characters are a little wacky.

Speaking about the “Twilight” film adaption of Stephaine Meyers books, the actress told Zimbio: “Our movie is’t perfect”.

“None of our characters are perfect at all. They’re all so completely crazy and messed up and that’s why they go well together. They don’t make excuses for their weirdness and they accept each other for who they are.”

Kristen also talked about her favorite scenes from the recently released “Eclipse” in which Bella, Jacob and Edward are hiding out in wilderness in sub zero conditions. Arch enemies Edward and Jacob have to put place their differences aside during the intense scenes.

“To shoot the scene felt good because she’s always wanted Jacob and Edward to level with each other finally,” she said. “It’s funny that it takes place while she’s sleeping in between them.”
