Kristen Stewart and the Twilight Saga were the big winners at last night's People's Choice Awards.
The 20-year-old actress beat the likes of Julia Roberts, Jennifer Aniston and Angelina Jolie to win Favorite Movie Actress, while Twilight Saga: Eclipse, the latest installment in the vampire film franchise picked up three awards, including Favorite Movie. Surpassing The Social Network and Inception for the gong, Eclipse also won Favorite Drama Movie and Favorite On-Screen Team - for Kristen, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner - at the event, which was held at Los Angeles' Nokia Theatre.
"Thank you so much, I've never been to the People's Choice Awards before," Kristen said.
Eminem “scared himself” with the extent of his drug addiction.
The rapper admits he only gave up taking illegal substances for good after he relapsed just weeks after an almost fatal drug-taking session in late 2007.
“I had overdosed in 2007, like right around Christmas in 2007. I pretty much almost died. You know, I pulled through and went home and relapsed less than a month later and I literally shot back up to the amount of pills I was taking, shot right back up to where I overdosed. Kind of I scared myself, like, ‘Yo! I need to, I need help. Like I can’t beat this on my own.’ The things I was putting in my body, my tolerance got so high. I got to the point where I couldn’t even count how many pills I was taking.”
The hip-hop superstar has a 14-year-old daughter Hailie, his child with ex-wife Kimberley Scott, and two adopted girls Alaina, the child of Kimberley’s sister, and Whitney - Kimberley’s daughter from a previous relationship. He is also the legal guardian of his younger half-brother Nathan.

Eminem says he felt like Bugs Bunny during his stint in rehab. The rapper, who just launched his latest album Relapse, admits his worldwide fame left him feeling like a cartoon character when he checked into rehab in 2005 to receive treatment for drug addiction.
Marshall Mathers told BBC Radio One, “When I landed myself in rehab in 2005 I felt like I wanted to reassess everything. I remember sitting in rehab thinking, ‘Is this what it comes to, really?’ So when I got out I knew I needed to pull back from the spotlight because of the fame thing. I was like Bugs Bunny in rehab, Bugs Bunny walking in the room. The second you walk in the room…There were some people who were as supportive as they could be, some people that were like, ‘I don’t look at you as Eminem. I’m seeing you as Marshall.’”
Eminem recently revealed he wanted to kill himself at the height of his problems. According to him, he just wasn’t taking care of himself, and at times wanted to just give up. “I was in a dark place. I wanted to pull back from the spotlight to reassess my whole career. I got sober but it was pretty rough. A couple of years were bad for me.”
