Pattinson, 25, and Stewart, 21, have starred in the "Twilight Saga" series of films since the original "Twilight" vampire romance movie in 2008. "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 1," which opened last month, was the No. 1 film at the box office over the five-day Thanksgiving period, according to an estimate from distributor Summit Entertainment. "Breaking Dawn — Part 2" is set for release next year.

Extra office space in Santa Monica
Mike Judge, creator and star of the animated comedy "King of the Hill," has bought a Santa Monica house from Richard Taite, chief executive of the Cliffside Malibu rehab facility, for $4.45 million.
The two-story contemporary Mediterranean, built in the mid-1970s, features three stone fireplaces, custom ironwork, wood-beam ceilings and mosaic tile work. The four-bedroom, 41/2-bathroom house includes a gym in its more than 3,700 square feet of living space. There is also a detached office-guesthouse.
The animator and voice actor, 49, created and stars in MTV's "Beavis and Butt-Head." He has won two Emmys. Judge's films include the 1999 satire "Office Space."
The property, which Taite bought in 2009 for $3.6 million, had been listed at $4.895 million.
Dawn Robertson of Keller Williams Beverly Hills was the listing agent, and Joseph Tourtelot of Coldwell Banker Malibu represented Judge, according to the Multiple Listing Service.
Moving a short drive away?
Professional golfer Fred Couples has listed his second home in La Quinta at $4.195 million.
The Spanish-style villa has a courtyard with a fountain. The nearly half-acre site has mountain views, a swimming pool with a spa and a fire pit. Interior features include limestone and wood floors, arched windows, a great room with an oversized stone fireplace, a wine room and two master suites with stone fireplaces and terraces. There are four bedrooms and 41/2 bathrooms. The roughly 5,200-square-foot house is being sold furnished.
Among community amenities are two fitness centers, a swimming pool and a private golf course designed by Tom Fazio.
Couples, 52, uses the house as a place to relax at the end of the golf season. He joined the PGA Tour in 1982 and the Champions Tour last year. Among his wins are the 1992 Masters Tournament and this year's Senior Players Championship.
He is selling because he plans to build a custom home in the same development. Public records show Couples bought the property in 2009 for $3,047,500.
Janine Stevens of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage in La Quinta is the listing agent.
