Robert Pattinson är livrädd för att spela pappa i Breaking Dawn!

Robert berättar om sin ångest över det kommande slutet på "Twilight"-serien, vad han tycker om att kyss scenerna mellan Kristen Stewart och Taylor Lautner, och mycket mer!

What are you looking forward to about “Breaking Dawn” being shot back-to-back as two films and of Bill Condon directing them?

I’m glad that it’s Bill Condon. I love his stuff. I haven’t seen the script yet but I am fearful about the series’ end. It’s such a great security blanket. It’s like a net. You can afford to make mistakes when you have another “Twilight” film to make. After that, I guess you’re on your own.

I’m glad the “Breaking Dawn” films will be done together. Because otherwise, it’s quite hard to fit another film in-between each one. Like what happened in “Eclipse”—having to get your mind back to where it was before. I had about a week of preparation time. It was quite stressful in the beginning. With the two films done together, you can just stay in character the whole time.

In the tent scene which is already the much talked-about thing in “Eclipse,” your vampire character is of course cold, body temperature wise, while Taylor’s Jacob drives home the point that he’s literally hotter.

It’s sort of an odd scene. It’s quite difficult. It’s incredibly depressing for Edward (laughing). It does make him seem incredibly unattractive. But I never really got it in the first place. It’s like having some freezing cold person next to you (laughing). It’s horrible.

Taylor told us that you were always cracking up in that scene.

I was in a very strange room when we were shooting that scene (laughing). I kept getting obsessed with the idea of the word “thoughts” with an American accent. It sounds like “farts.” I couldn’t get over it the entire day. The opening line was, “Can you at least keep your thoughts to yourself?” I’m sitting in this tent and every single time, I laugh over that line. Taylor got to the point where he was like, “Those words don’t even sound the same. It’s not funny at all.”

I think I was tired. I find all this stuff where we have to boss each other all quite funny. Considering that we’re in teen-girl magazines and stuff … Taylor always has his shirt off. And I’ve got my little quaff (laughing). We’re trying to act all macho. I thought it was really funny.

Talk about the dynamics between the three of you now that Jacob gets to kiss Bella in this movie.

It’s weird. Not only do they do the kissing scenes—they never do it when I am even on the set. I have the day off. You genuinely feel like someone’s cheating on you. Then you come back to the set. And almost always, it’s after one of their scenes where I suspect them of doing something. It just so happened every single time—I would come into work being like, “So how was it?”

Can you set the record straight—your Edward character is a 100-year-plus-old virgin?

I think he’s … how old is he now? He must be 109 or 110. There’s an arguable point with another vampire in Alaska from the first book. It’s briefly mentioned. But I can’t remember if it’s actually fully explained if he is a virgin or not. I think the fans like to believe he is.

Since these “Twilight” films are fantasy/romance/thriller dramas, may I ask which love stories inspired you?

I have to sound really cheesy and say my parents. My parents met when my mom was 17 and my dad was 26. They’re still together. I grew up in an age where everybody gets divorced.

But in terms of film, I’ve always liked despairing, painful love stories. I think that’s probably because I’m still young. There’s a Godard film called “First Name: Carmen.” I’m not even going to attempt to say the French pronunciation. I always found that to be one of the most truthful and inspiring love stories I’ve seen on film.

How uncomfortable is it to be acting with contact lens on?

You can’t feel properly. You can’t sweat. If you do anything to sweat, everything starts breaking on your face. You can’t even psyche yourself up for a scene. I don’t know how people do scenes with contact lenses on. I just find it impossible. The Edward character is about restraint and restricting yourself about everything. He’s not a very effusive person. A lot of the performance should be done with your eyes but then you eliminate that ability by putting the contacts on. Whenever I do other movies in which I don’t have to wear contacts, I breathe a sigh of relief.

In “Breaking Dawn,” you become a father and Bella becomes a vampire bride. Do you have tips for Kristen on playing a vampire? Do you feel that you’re mature enough to play a dad?

It’s funny because I’m playing a dad in some scenes in “Breaking Dawn” and I’m portraying one in a movie I’m doing now as well. I’m terrified about doing it. I don’t know what I’m going to do when it comes to those scenes. I’ve been complaining so much about having the makeup on and contact lenses. Kristen is like, “You’re so pathetic. You have to just get over it. Why can’t you just get used to it?” [Now, since Kristen has to wear contact lens, too], I can finally be like, “You will know what it’s like. You’re going to be in constant aggravation the whole time.” Which is great.

We don’t see a lot of guys like Edward who protects a girl’s virtue. Do you relate to him at all? How old-fashioned are you?

I think I’ve become more old-fashioned. I feel like I’m already turning middle-aged now (laughing). It’s quite nice to be doing a series of films that a lot of people think uphold positive virtues. Some people actually think the films are a good influence on their kids.


Stephenie Meyer was on the set of “Eclipse” more often than she was on the first two movies. What was that like?

It’s not intimidating. She’s really nice. She really likes the films. It was strange, though. I didn’t really notice until toward the end of the filming. I was like, “Stephenie has been here every day” (laughing). It was interesting. She’s always open. She would never really come in and push anything on us. She was open to answering questions.

You have a western genre film project, “Unbound Captives,” in development. Why are you fascinated with westerns?

I grew up watching westerns. My dad’s favorite movies are all westerns. I hope that film happens. It’s such a complicated film to get together because it’s not really an action film or anything. It’s a slightly depressing romantic drama, half of which is in Comanche. It will definitely be different. My character is a massive stretch for me.

You play the guitar. How important is music for you?

It’s really important. Incidentally, my sister is a singer and a songwriter. Acting has helped as well because I’ve never really had any particular interest. The only reason I’d start releasing records is hopefully so I get a name in music and have good people who would want to collaborate with me. I guess having a name in acting, you can get your foot through the door with quite a few musicians. I hope I’ll be able to record some stuff just for myself. The idea of selling it—as soon as you start making it—it dies in a lot of ways. It’s too scary at that point. Then everyone feels the need to judge it. But if you’re not making money and you’re doing it for yourself, then no one’s going to judge it.

“Twilight” is very popular with young people, including Jaden Smith. What kind of books and music did you like when you were a teenager?

I was obsessed with a writer called Martin Amis when I was a teenager. I read everything. Every single time I went to a bookshop, I’d see if he has other books. I used to buy multiple editions of his books.
Martin, Van Morrison and Jimi Hendrix—they were my people when I was growing up. I’d obsessively collect all their stuff.

That’s funny about how Jaden likes the “Twilight” thing. He’s like the first guy who’s willing to admit it (laughing).

What has so far been a life-changing experience for you?

My moving to secondary school. I was kicked out of my first school. There is a whole system of the schools in London where I went from one school to another and then to university. Everybody went to the same schools. But I got kicked out. I ended up going to an arts school which was probably the best thing that ever happened to me.

Why were you kicked out?

Secret (laughing).

Gillar ni hennes nya hårfärg? Hon var ju tvungen att få det lite ljusare eftersom hon ska vara med i filmen, On The Road. Jag tycker att hennes andra hårfärg passade henne mycket bättre men den här funkar också bra enligt mig. ;)


Intervju med Xavier Samuel

Intervju Magazine intervjuade Xavier Samuel, som spelar Riley i den kommande filmen Eclipse! Xavier pratar om filmen, fansen, och mycket mer!


BRYCE DALLAS HOWARD: So now that you’re almost on the other side with Eclipse, how has everything been for you? It’s all been a little wild, right?

XAVIER SAMUEL: Yeah, it has. It’s kind of like being struck by lightning in a way, because it all seems so improbable.
HOWARD: Eclipse is your first American film.
SAMUEL: It is. I’ve been doing American auditions for a while, and it always felt sort of like sending these audition tapes off into the ether. So just
hearing anything back from anyone was kind of startling.
HOWARD: When we were shooting Eclipse, it was amazing for me to see how the girls all went berserk over you.
These girls were totally losing their minds—and much like everyone else
in the cast who experiences those sorts of things, you dealt with it
really graciously and wonderfully. Were you at all startled by that?

SAMUEL: I mean, it’s kind of bizarre, isn’t it? Having that kind of attention.
I’m not under the microscope in the same fashion that a lot of the
other cast members are, so I think I can slide under the radar a little
bit more, but getting any attention at all is completely new for me.

HOWARD: Well, it’s been interesting to see how these young women have responded to you and your hair and your accent.

SAMUEL: My hair and my accent are sort of my main assets.

HOWARD: I’ve found, just from working with Australians like you and Mia and Sam

Worthington—actually Gus Van Sant, who directed the film [Restless]
I worked on with Mia, also noticed this with Nicole Kidman—that you
guys have such a sturdiness. I don’t know if it’s just the terrain in
Australia or the kind of training you do or the way acting is taught
over there, but there’s a sturdiness that we as Americans could
definitely learn something from. There’s also a sense of gratitude.

SAMUEL: Well, I think it’s the training coupled with the fact that the films that get
made are so few and far between. In Australia, getting an audition can
be a rarity. There just aren’t as many opportunities. So I guess the
mentality is that you kind of give your all whenever you get a chance
to work. When you put that in the American context, where you’re getting a substantial number of auditions a week by comparison, I guess
your strike rate is a bit better, in a way. I mean, being in a film
like Eclipse is such a great opportunity—and there’s a massive fan base with these Twilight movies that you need to respect. So I don’t think I could sleep at night if I didn’t give it my best shot.

Intervjuer, intervjuer, intervjuer

Är du sugen på 14 nya intervjuer med skådespelare, regissörer m.m från The Twilight Saga: Eclipse? Då har du kommit rätt! Om jag ska skriva lite kort(KOOORT) om intervjuerna så kan man väll säga att de handlar om Eclipse! :D Spådespelarna pratar ganska mycket om deras karaktärer också.




Kristen Stewart om att vara känd

Kristen berättar att det även finns fördelar med att vara känd, särskilt i yrkeslivet. Kristen snackar lite om Lindsay Lohan också! ;)

Although opening up the benefit of being famous, the ‘Twilight Saga’ star explains that she avoids Facebook and Twitter because ‘there’s not a satisfied point that you can ever reach’. Kristen Stewart likes being famous. The ”Twilight Saga” actress, who is rumored to be dating her co-star Robert Pattinson, admits fame does make her life easier, especially in her professional life.

”The fame makes my life so much easier where it’s most important to me, because I get to do really awesome projects right now,” she said. ”It looks much crazier on the outside than it is.”

However, the 20-year-old star doesn’t want to court the attention and avoids social networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter because she thinks they are narcissistic. She told Total Film, ”It’s just too connected.”

”They can just basically reach out and touch you. I feel about the most interesting thing about me is that I do these movies. More than that… it’s just complete narcissism. You start giving stuff away – then they’re not going to stop asking. There’s not a satisfied point that you can ever reach, so why start.”

Kristen recently credited her family for helping her reach where she had, and noted she was glad not to find herself in the same situation as troubled actress Lindsay Lohan. She said, ”My family are amazing. I had, like, the perfect upbringing. It sucks for people like Lindsay Lohan, but it’s not her fault that she’s so off the rails – and she’s smart, very smart.”

Jackson Rathbone snackar Breaking Dawn

Väldigt kort intervju men ganska rolig! :D

Movie Trailers - Movies Blog

In a new interview with MTV, Breaking Dawn Vampire Jackson Rathbone (aka Jasper Hale) told MTV that he is pretty excited to reunited with his Twilight cast for the filming of Breaking Dawn -

“I have not spoken to ["Breaking Dawn" director] Bill Condon yet, but I’m excited to,” Rathbone told MTV News last week, when he was in Los Angeles for the MTV Movie Awards. “He’s an incredible director, [an] Academy Award winner. That’s amazing, so it’s just another awesome director to handle the ‘Twilight’ franchise.

“['Twilight' director] Catherine Hardwicke brought a very independent feel. ['New Moon' director] Chris Weitz kind of made it a little more beautiful and elegant and ['Eclipse' director] David Slade’s going a little darker… so I’m excited to see what Bill Condon does,” Rathbone continued. “I really have no idea. I haven’t even seen a script for ‘Breaking Dawn’ yet, to be honest. I’m right there with you, still waiting.”

Rathbone admitted that he didn’t quite know the timetable for shooting “Breaking Dawn,” either. “I don’t! I could lie though! I will lie to you,” the “The Last Airbender” star teased. He then made up this scenario: “We’re filming it tomorrow, all of it in one day. We’re just gonna drink a lot of Red Bulls and we’re gonna have a green screen and go through it; no script even. We’re gonna make it up. You know what? We’re gonna try for all tomorrow.”

Many of the elements of “Breaking Dawn” are still unknown, but Rathbone is certain of one thing: He’s happy that the whole cast is reuniting. “I just wanted the family to be together,” he said. “We grew up [together]. Every time we get to film with one another, it’s like a family reunion.”

Robert Pattinson om intimscenerna i Breaking Dawn


Robert Pattinson is almost as excited as we are to see some racy sex scenes go down in the Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn. But can you blame him? He gets to film said scenes with his real-life GF, Kristen Stewart!

“I think it will be interesting…I’m curious to see what it’ll look like,” the 24-year-old British hunk says in France’s Premiere magazine. “We don’t procrastinate any longer. Bella telling me, ‘I want you to turn me’ and me going, ‘No, no, no.’ She becomes a vampire in this movie. We get married and sleep together…I haven’t read the script yet but I’m sure it’ll be good.”

He adds, “I’m wondering how they will be able to translate this on screen. We’ll end up with a R-rated movie. Can you imagine if we decided to go in and turn Twilight into a hardcore saga for adults with sex scenes and everything?”

Intervju med David Slade

Ja, jag kanske ska varna alla om att det finns Eclipse spoilers i intervjun för de som inte vill veta något! ;) David Slade är så cool! :D


Intervju med Chaske Spencer

With a recurring role in what has arguably become one of the most popular film franchises of the last decade, Twilight actor Chaske Spencer is surprisingly grounded.“I’m glad and very happy that I’ve got to be part of this pop culture phenomenon but at the end of the day it will go away,” he said last week, speaking from his base in Los Angeles.



“It will be a drinking game for the girls who grow up at college, it’s gonna launch some careers and give people a lot of opportunities.

“I’ve enjoyed the ride and I’m still enjoying the ride. I take it with a grain of salt.”

First appearing in the second film of the saga, New Moon, Spencer plays the role of Sam Uley, leader of the wolf pack.

“There’s a lot of physicality to this role and so when I prepare for Sam the book gives me the insight into what I need to go for with the character, but the workouts really helped out a lot. After you’re doing 100 push ups and 1000 sit ups you feel animalistic.”
He is currently promoting the third film, Eclipse, in which he and his fellow werewolves share a lot more screen time.

For those oblivious to the phenomenon, The Twilight Saga began with the best-selling series of novels by Stephenie Meyers.

The tale is spun around lead character Bella Swan, who is torn between love interest Edward Cullen, a 17-year-old “good” vampire, and her best friend Jacob Black, a 16-year-old werewolf who preys on “bad” vampires.

It’s a Mills & Boons-style romance, only with fangs and fur, and it has been embraced by a devout legion of Twilighters [as the fans are known] around the globe.

As well as continuing the love story, Eclipse will include more action and see the introduction of new characters.

“We [the wolf pack] join forces with the vampires and I think the fans are gonna love it, especially the ones who read the book,” Spencer said.

“We’ve got some new vampires coming in: Xavier [Samuel], who I think is a brilliant actor and a really good guy to work with; Julia Jones, she’s gonna play Leah Clearwater. I think she’s a wonderful actress and I’m very honoured to call her a friend. And BooBoo Stewart as well all these great new characters coming in.”

Spencer, a native American, was born of the Lakota Sioux tribe and raised on reservations in Montana and Idaho.

The 35-year-old has appeared in television series, films and on stage, but since appearing in New Moon, many a new door has opened.

“I’m gonna be forever attached to this franchise and it’s a double edged sword,” Spencer said.

“It’s a good thing because it’s giving me opportunities. For me, I appreciate everything it’s done but at some point you’ve got to distance yourself and take other roles where you keep your shirt on.

“I just did a film called Shouting Secrets, a very character driven movie and worked with a brilliant cast and a beautiful script, and that’s what the saga has allowed me. I also did a film called Winter In The Blood in which I pretty much play an alcoholic.

“I’ve been working before Twilight it just happened that when I got this role it’s given me a lot of exposure but I think you’ve got to keep a smart head on your shoulders and at some point back off.”

Spencer said he was grateful to the saga for its portrayal of native Americans.

“This time around we didn’t have to speak with a broken tongue or slap on the leather and feather,” he said.

“There’s character involved here and story, so it was a breath of fresh air … and the fans of Twilight don’t see us as native American actors, they see us as actors, which is something new. It’s a breath of fresh air that when the character’s introduced you have some rock music playing in the background, they’re not looking at you as long-haired native American. They’re looking at you as a werewolf that happens to be native.”

Spencer said that he would return for the fourth film in the saga, Breaking Dawn.

He said that the hardest aspect of preparing to play the part of a werewolf was the intense workouts.

“We hit the gym hard,” he said. “I really liked it though. My body has changed this past year, because I wasn’t that big. I was in shape but I was not the size that I am now.

“According to the book the wolves do get bigger when they’re in human form so I’ve been eating a lot, putting on weight, lifting more and then when it gets closer to game time I start getting cut, running, watching what I eat.

Intervju med Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson & Taylor Lautner

USA Today  intervjuade Tay, KStew och Rob då de var i Chicago.
Robert Pattinson, left, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner hung out after an Oprah Winfrey Show taping in Chicago to talk about their film The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, in theaters June 30.
CHICAGO — Dashingly disheveled Robert Pattinson has an infectious, high-pitched laugh that would never do for his seductive vampire lover-boy, Edward Cullen.

Buff-and-polished Taylor Lautner is pocket-size compared with the looming stature of his werewolf counterpart, Jacob Black.

Casual yet cool Kristen Stewart can be a real chatterbox, unlike her moody Bella Swan, the high schooler in a romantic tug of war between these two supernatural objects of teen desire.

Lucky girl, right? "Yeah, but that's in the movies," Stewart says about bringing to life the modern-day Gothic heroine from the insanely popular Twilight book series (85 million copies sold so far). "I'm just the ultimate fan. If you read a story and you like it andconnect to it, it probably means you've inserted yourself in the story, and I get to do that on the most glorified level possible."
Hollywood fantasy regularly blends with everyday reality for these three blazing-hot rising stars. It has taken a while for a cultural navigator like Oprah Winfrey to zero in on the heat behind the literary-spawned phenom. But on this early May morning, Twilight fever is raging at Harpo Studios as the actors file into the backstage area after taping a show that aired Thursday. The occasion? Eclipse, the third chapter in an already billion-dollar worldwide franchise that arrives June 30.

The actors are unfazed by the shrieking adoration of a largely female audience, many in black Twilight T's — Team Edward and Team Jacob are duly represented — and all handpicked for their passion for the epic movie series based on author Stephenie Meyer's four-part saga.

"It's so nice sometimes, preaching to the converted," says Pattinson, 24, the London-born overnight sex symbol and primary reason for the screams. Thanks to his devoted worshipers, he has been elevated from a little-known Harry Potter supporting player to one of Time's 100 most influential people in the world in less than three years. They were out in force the night before at a Winfrey-sponsored screening of an unfinished print of Eclipse.Afterward, a firestorm of fan Tweets rife with "OMGs" gushed about the much-anticipated sequel to 2008'sTwilight and last year's New Moon.

Once Stewart, 20, painstakingly signs Winfrey's guest book and Lautner, 18, stops practicing his grape-tossing parlor trick, the castmates settle into a buttery leather sofa to talk about such topics as the iconic moments that are re-created in Eclipse, run-ins with other celebrities and what the post-Twilight future holds.

The fame game

But, first, the pain of fame that comes from being on the paparazzi's most-wanted list is addressed. When New Moon opened last fall, barely a day went by without seeing a headline about Lautner and country cutie Taylor Swift or speculation on whether Pattison and Stewart are a real-life couple.

Although, lately, the frenzy has calmed somewhat, judging by the number of Twilight-free magazine covers at grocery checkouts. "I don't know if this is the actual reason why, but we have gotten better at hiding over the last year," Pattinson says.

"That's totally the reason," Stewart concurs. "They just make up a story to go along with the pictures. If they never get the picture, there's no story. We are just good hiders now."

Such subterfuge includes neither confirming nor denying that they are in a relationship. Yet there clearly is some sort of special connection between the two, what with their playful teasing and personal asides. Let's just say it wasn't Lautner who placed a hand on Pattinson's leg during a portion of the interview.

But all three take their Twilight-related duties to heart, whatever they might require. Stewart even leaps up in a panic at one point, fearing she misspelled a word in her salutation to Winfrey. She checks the book: "Believe — ie or ei?"

"I before e except after c," Pattinson responds. She checks. "Oh, yeah," she says with a triumphant fist pump.

Pattinson laughs. "I almost spelled Oprah wrong. I almost wrote Opera."

The actors are keen to know how Eclipse played to the crowd at the screening and are pleased to hear that every element has been heightened: the horror, the romance, the three-way interaction among their characters, the touches of humor that often come at the expense of Edward and Jacob's rivalry — especially after they forge a testy alliance to save Bella from a roving gang of rabid newborn vampires.

Stewart says of Eclipse's positive early reception: "It is a well-oiled machine at this point. We have had a lot of time to establish what this thing is about and a lot of time to consider it. And they gave us so much more money this time. So that is exciting."

Pattinson, looking bemused, quickly clarifies her statement. "For the film. The budget."

Stewart is chagrined. "Oh, my God. No, no. That didn't even occur to me. They gave us so much more money to make the film look good!"

The leads did get raises — Stewart and Pattinson are taking home a reported $7.5 million each plus a percentage of the gross, Lautner gets $5 million — while the production's price tag grew to $65 million, still modest compared with similar franchises.

Yet the few extra bucks seem to have paid off, especially with the effects. Even Lautner's CG wolf alter-ego is more adorable than in New Moon. "Yeah," says the actor, sheepishly. "It was very cuddly. I don't know if that's what we were aiming for."

He waffles over the wisdom of sharing an anecdote about the scene in which the vicious horse-sized beast sweetly nuzzles Bella and she scratches his ear. After a little coaxing, he relents.

"That day I came on set and put on this tight gray spandex suit ..."

"There is dialogue and I talk to him," Stewart explains. "I said, 'How am I going to do this without Taylor?' " So instead of the actress pretending that a massive computer-animated wolf was nearby, Lautner volunteered to be its stand-in.

"Basically, it looked like a Teletubby," he continues about his outfit. "I had this circle on the face but everything else was covered. It was weird. But, yeah, I stood there and would literally bend over ..."

"I would actually pet his head," Stewart adds.

Pattinson, meanwhile, struggled with Edward's rather formal proposal to Bella, which reflects the fact that although his vintage vampire looks 17, he hails from the turn of the last century.

"I was dreading the day it was coming," he says of the scene that was held until the very end of the shoot. "The first time I read the script, I thought, 'This is impossible.' " References to "promenades" and sharing "iced tea on the porch" as Edward explains how he would have courted Bella in the old days especially stuck in his throat. "It's so earnest. I finally convinced the producers that you can play it with a bit of awareness of not being a fictional character. I'm not trying to be part of a Gothic novel."

When Pattinson finally watched it, however, he was pleasantly surprised. "It seems different when you see it."

Their profiles have grown with each film, and celebrity status does afford them the chance to mingle with their own idols. Although, more often than not, the other stars are the ones bedazzled as they request autographs for their Twilight-crazed kids.

"I took a picture with Ron Howard last year at the Oscars," Pattinson recalls. "I thought it was the funniest thing. I asked, 'Is it for your kids?' He said, 'No, it's for me. I want to have it on my phone.' " Making the situation even odder: Howard's daughter, Bryce Dallas Howard, is in Eclipse.

Alas, Pattinson has yet to run into his favorite, Jack Nicholson.

Stewart pipes up: "I have."

Pattinson: "What? When did you meet?"

Stewart: "At a screening for Into the Wild," her 2007 coming-of-age drama directed by Sean Penn. "He was exactly like you think he would be."

Pattinson, sounding peeved: "You never told me that."

Lautner joins in. "I didn't meet him but I sat next to him at a Lakers game."

Pattinson, utterly exasperated: "What?"

Life beyond 'Twilight'

Next subject. The three are actively trying to ward off post-Twilight typecasting by doing solo projects in between. Stewart and Pattinson, both bookworms and drawn to art-house fare, earned OK reviews but underwhelming ticket sales for their two recent releases, the girl-band bio The Runaways and the romantic melodramaRemember Me.

But they continue to be in demand for more mature roles. Stewart is psyched to be a part of a big-screen version of Jack Kerouac's On the Road, which starts shooting in August. Pattinson recently wrapped his work on the London set of Bel Ami as a 19th-century social-climbing rogue opposite Kristin Scott Thomas, Uma Thurmanand Christina Ricci. Does he bed all three?

"Yes, but they're not like typical love scenes at all," he says.

Adds Stewart: "They're all a little weird. A little edgy. And a little nude." Chuckling ensues.

Meanwhile, Lautner — a natural athlete who played a high school track star in the box-office-topping ensemble comedy Valentine's Day— seems to be angling to become the next big action hero with upcoming roles in the thriller Abduction and Stretch Armstrong, a 3-D adventure based on a toybox muscleman

Did he ever own one of the dolls, whose limbs could be pulled and elongated like taffy? "I don't remember having one at my house, but I totally remember stretching that sucker."

Then there is the next Twilight feature, Breaking Dawn, opening Nov. 18 next year. The fourth and presumably final book is so jammed with life-altering events — a wedding, first-time sex between Bella and Edward, a grotesquely painful birth — that there has been talk of doing two films back to back. And it might even be in 3-D. But the actors can confirm only their involvement.

What has been decided is that Breaking Dawn's director will be Bill Condon, the filmmaker behindDreamgirlsand Oscar-nominated screenwriter of Chicago.

Have they met Condon, who already posted a letter on Facebook reassuring fans of his appreciation of the material and that the film most definitely will not be a musical despite his résumé?

Lautner nods yes.

Pattinson: "When did you meet him?" Lautner: "One day." Stewart: "Did you have a meeting?" Lautner: "No, no." Pattinson: "I literally met him three nights ago."

Stewart, in a mock snit: "Well, he obviously doesn't want to meet me."
