New Moon, the sequel to the popular teen fantasy drama Twilight, had its premiere Monday night in Westwood, CA. The Hollywood Gossip got some candid shots of stars Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson, who did not walk the red carpet together, despite (or because of) persistent rumors of a real-life romance budding between the two.

The two stars had plenty to focus on alone, with the thousands of screaming fans that showed up at the premiere, many of them camping out as early as the previous Thursday to secure a front-row seat.
"You can't really prepare for something like this," said Robert Pattinson. "I don't know how the Beatles felt, but this is kind of..." Screaming fans interrupted Pattinson's train of thought.
"I think very few human beings can ever get this same feeling," he concluded.
New Moon opens in theaters everywhere tomorrow, starting with advanced screenings beginning at midnight tonight.
