Between The Walking Dead season premiere and Halloween coming up, this week’s linkdump has all sorts of zombie stuff in it. Let’s kick this off with the very unzombie-like Kristen Stewart. But maybe that’s because she’s more into sparkly vampires instead of zombies. Of course, if the Twilight vampires and warewolves weren’t such wussy bitches, Kristen’s character would be a vampire or warewolf by now.
First, let’s give you the complete guide to surviving the zombie apocalypse. (New York Magazine)

Remember that story last week about Kirsten Dunst not taking a movie role because her breasts were too big? Well, the director of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo said he didn’t give the lead role to Scarlett Johansson because her breasts were too big. (Film Drunk) Well, he’s right about one thing: Guys would all be waiting for the nude scene. However, I don’t follow his logic about ScarJo’s breasts being too big for the role. Maybe we’ll just have to agree to disagree.
