The more I get to know of things that this almost A list mostly movie actress from a huge, no longer in existence franchise, the less I like of her. She has had experiences with the same sex several times. Many times. She has no issues with it and moves from one sex to the other seamlessly. Does not mean she is sexual, she just has no problems having sex with men or women. Anyway, one of her co-stars shares something with her that many of her other franchise co-stars did not. Yes, that is a clue. Her co-star is also an actress. Probably B- list; mostly movies, but with as high of a name recognition as our almost A lister. Several years ago, our B lister confided to our almost A lister that that B lister prefers women, or at least she thought she did. She had been on dates with boys but it had primarily been just hand holding and kissing and she felt nothing for them. Her female friends though were another story. She lusted after them, but because of her age and the way she had always marketed herself, she did not think it wise to get involved or even experiment with women until she met our almost A lister. The two began an affair that has lasted a few years. Only when the almost A lister wants it though, which is only when she needs something from the B lister or needs some attention or just wants to f**k with the B lister's head. Our almost A lister is good at that. That is a monthly occurrence. The B lister is in love with our almost A lister and our almost A lister takes advantage of that. A lot. Mostly just by using the B lister or getting her involved in sick jokes and pranks. One of the jokes was so bad that our B lister lost out on a very very good part that ended up getting another person an Academy Award nomination for the role.
Since when is anyone in Twilight anything like "almost A list"?
Since Twilight became a billion dollar franchise.
A franchise built on a group of C-listers. Name one actor/actress from the cast that can open a movie on their own.
You really don't understand what A List is, do you R5.

How much credence can one give to illiterate babble?
A-list is people like George Clooney, Will Smith, or Julia Roberts. People that can get a movie made just by being involved in it. Their name on a movie can (but not always does) sell tickets. Name anyone from Twilight that can do the same.
It's about name recognition.
And what kind of recognition do any of them really have, beyond the movies' fan base? Twihards are not that large a segment of the general population.
And yet we are constantly talking about them on DL and rarely if ever does anyone seriously ask "Who is Kristen Stewart?" when we do.

That in itself does not make anyone "almost A list". DL is not the world at large. I'm sure that lots of people outside of the Twilight Zone have heard her name, but I doubt that anyone outside of that realm gives her much thought, or would be interested in seeing a film because it features her or any of the others from the cast.
R12, my speaking of someone does indeed render that person A list.
R13, if you were Sidney Korshak, I'd agree with you.
The BI called her ALMOST a-lister. Not an actual A-Lister.
And yes, KStew is not A-list but close to it. She might be A-List name recognition but not in A-List in the truest sense.
But as a note: Entertainment lawyer, for example, never categorizes them correctly. He goes by who he likes or whatever. This is why most of his BI are shit. I wouldn't believe anything out of his site.
r15 is right, Entertainment Lawyer has a whack idea of who is or isn't A-list, B-list, etc.
You're all barking up the wrong tree.
A-Lister is Jessica Chastain. Not sure who her B-List co-star is...
Send in The Help...
The Help wasn't a franchise, R17. What have been famous franchises with female leads lately other than Twilight?
I doubt Jessica has psychopathic tendencies.
KStew and Dakota. Role Dakota missed out on : True Grit.

We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
