Why is ‘Twilight’ so popular? We could give plenty of reasons, yet it is certain that the series became a real phenomenon throughout the entire world, having a massive audience especially among teenagers. Now, with Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner reprising their roles for The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1 and The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2, ‘Entertainment Weekly’ comes with a special issue in which you’ll find the first official full photos of the last installment in the series.
The cover itself is rather festive, featuring Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart posing romantically, while another cover shows Taylor Lautner looking extremely hot. In the interview, the three actors talk about Bella and Edward’s wedding day, the brutal birth of the baby, but also about their favorite scenes. “I like the honeymoon scenes because it’s such a massive turnaround in Edward and Bella’s relationship,” Robert admits.
Speaking about shooting the wedding day, Kristen says that, “I never would have thought I’d be affected in this way, but it was one of the coolest things that I’ve done. There was a certain point when I walked on set, and I saw everyone from the entire cast sitting there in the pews, about to do their bit. And it was just so perfect for me in that moment. It was so emotional in such a real way. I literally felt like thanking them for coming.”
In ‘Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn’, Bella and Edward have a remarkable daughter, Renesmee. On the birth scene in the film Kristen says that, “It’s funny because when [the PG-13 issue] comes up, everybody thinks it’s all about the sex. The birth is really effective, and I’ve heard it really hits you in the face. But what it could have been? It could have been shocking and grotesque, because that’s how it was written in the book. I would have loved to have been puking up blood.”
Director Billy Condon told EW that ‘Breaking Dawn Part 1 and 2’ will be far bloodier than the other in the franchise. “We shot everything — whether it’s the lovemaking or the childbirth — as potent and powerful as it can be. It will be interesting to see whether there will be people who think it too disturbing for this universe.”
Taylor Lautner speaks about his so-called ‘privileges’ of filming shirtless in the rain. “Everybody is always complaining to me that I don’t have to wear the contacts, I don’t have to wear the white makeup or wear wigs and all that stuff. And I’m like, ‘I’m the one in the freezing rain and cold not wearing a shirt! I paid my dues in New Moon and Eclipse'”. On falling for Renesmee in Part 2, he says that, “There were many times I walked up to Stephenie [Meyer] and asked her, ‘What exactly is imprinting?’ It’s still a very confusing thing for me, so don’t ask.”
You’ll find more behind-the-scenes details on ‘Breaking Dawn’ and exclusive photos in the new issue of ‘Entertainment Weekly’, on stands Friday, April 29. Part 1 of ‘The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn’ will be released on November 18, 2011, while Part 2 on November 16, 2012.
