“Twilight” saga star Ashley Greene had an extra bounce in her step Sunday night, when she attended the Teen Choice Awards. For the first time, she had been nominated for something by herself – Choice Fresh Face Female – an award she would take home before the evening was over.

When we caught up with the 22-year-old beauty on the red carpet, she was eager to talk about getting some recognition – and the work in “New Moon” that seems certain to raise her profile even higher.

“[The only thing I’ve been nominated for until now] is just ensemble,” Greene said. “Oh my gosh, it’s so cool. I got the phone call, and I was like, ‘Are you serious?’ It’s exciting.”

Transformers director Michael Bay recently said this about Megan Fox: “She says some very ridiculous things because she’s 23 years old and she still has a lot of growing to do.”

He continued, “You roll your eyes when you see statements like that and think, ‘Okay Megan, you can do whatever you want. I got it,'” he goes on in the Wall Street Journal.

What are some of the things she has said? See below:

“I would never date a girl who was bisexual, because that means they also sleep with men, and men are so dirty that I’d never want to sleep with a girl who had slept with a man.”

Meat’s not green, says Emily Deschanel in her latest PSA for PETA. The meat industry is responsible for more greenhouse gases than all forms of transportation combined, according to a recent report by the UN on Climate Change.

“There is no such thing as a meat-eating environmentalist. Now-a-days being green is very fashionable — especially in Hollywood,” Emily says. “While I think it is terrific to recycle and drive a hybrid, you can have an even greater impact on the environment by making one simple choice: don’t eat meat.”

“Fight climate change with diet change.”

On Tuesday, North Korea announced that it would try American journalists Euna Lee and Laura Ling – Lisa Ling’s sister – for “hostile acts” and illegally entering the country.

The official Korean Central News Agency said, “The illegal entry of US reporters into the DPRK (North Korea) and their suspected hostile acts have been confirmed by evidence and their statements.”

The agency also said that the pair, who work for California-based Current TV, will be granted consular access and will be tried according to international law. The agency did not, however, specify their “hostile acts,” although South Korean reports are saying they could be tried for spying.

The situation also tries relations with North Korea, which is planning to launch a communications satellite that the US believes is just a cover for long-range missile testing.

CBS may soon decide to pull the plug on “Guiding Light,” the longest-running daytime drama in television history.

While no final decision has been made, the network’s deal for the Procter & Gamble-produced drama-the least watched of the eight daytime serials currently on the air-ends in September. But if CBS does drop “Guiding Light,” it likely would lock in a decision within the next month, people familiar with the matter said. That would give writers a chance to tie up storylines.

CBS also would need to finalize new programming for the daytime hour that “Guiding Light” would be vacating.

Although she’s previously been quoted saying that she wouldn’t mind giving her daughter Nahla a sibling, she told Jay, “My mind wants another child, but my body is saying something else.”

One thing is for sure. She has absolutely no plans to wed her baby daddy and beau Gabriel Aubry. After giving the host a definitive “no,” she added: “The answer to that is never going to change.”

He loves to Google himself

Robert Downey Jr. has revealed that he loves to Google himself.

“I love all that shit personally. Sorry. I love just it. Because it’s a hoot. Some people overstate their support, like they know you,” RDJ said. “Other people are busy doing something else and just want to go on this chat site and say some despicable character assassination, which I honestly think they kind of nailed it. I do have that shortcoming. It’s really fun.”
