Rob & Kristen (from Access Hollywood on TV)
Rob vs Kristen on “Are You Really Married?”
Humbled by Grauman’s honor
Kristen Stewart said the experience of playing Bella Swan, who follows her heart in the upcoming “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1” film was one emotional rollercoaster.
“It would have been alarming if it wasn’t… I had to actually force myself to really have the experience and take the ride as it came, rather than building up to every moment that I’ve spent years with,” Kristen told Access Hollywood’s Shaun Robinson on Thursday about the experience.
“I had to trust that I knew all the things that I wanted to add to it, and just expect them to come. (To herself) Stop thinking, or else you’re going to look back and go, ‘Wow — I never really got to go through that,’” she continued. “It was really emotional, because at times, it felt like how this job should feel, which is like, ‘Wow — I kind of had a real experience there.’”
One of the biggest moments in the Bill Condon-directed movie was the wedding scene, which Kristen said was filled with gravitas.
“It didn’t feel like I was getting married, but it did feel very ceremonial.,” she said. “I felt like something important was happening for sure. Also, I guess the only difference is that it didn’t feel entirely about me. It really felt like, ‘God, you guys, it’s finally happening.’
“It was cool,” she added. “I guess maybe that would be the same at your wedding, I suppose. It did feel good, definitely. It was a genuine feeling of accomplishment.”
Robert Pattinson is blaming Kristen Stewart for the wedding night scene that, before it was re-edited, nearly earned “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1” an R rating.
“What were you doing?” Access Hollywood’s Shaun Robinson asked the Brit on Thursday afternoon as he promoted the November 18-due film.
“Weird stuff… It was gross,” Robert laughed. “No one wants to see that kind of stuff.”
When Shaun asked what director Bill Condon left on the cutting room floor, Robert suggested it was things done by his leading lady – K-Stew.
“It was more the noises. It was Kristen’s fault, really. I was just doing standard stuff,” Robert replied, trying not to look like the guilty party.
“I was just kind of going through the motions – breaking the headboard, I just kept breaking the headboard repeatedly,” he carried on, laughing. “Kristen was just over the top. It was just too much… Her wig [was] falling off.”
Before the bedroom scene between Robert’s Edward Cullen and Kristen’s Bella Swan-turned-Cullen, the two characters had to marry and the Brit said filming the giant nuptials was a day he’ll remember for a long time.
“It was really sweet. There was a big build [up] of excitement because there were a lot of new cast as well who came in and everyone knew it was a big deal,” Robert said. “There were all these paparazzi helicopters flying around, so everyone was kind of excited. But, it looks a lot prettier in the movie than it was in reality.”
And Robert continues to insist – even though none of his cast mates support him on the matter – that the man who married Edward and Bella on screen was the real deal.
”[He] was a real priest and Kristen’s going around saying it wasn’t a real priest,” Robert said. “It was a real priest. They were wrong, they weren’t paying attention, they were just thinking about themselves.”
While a giant, on-screen wedding can sway an actor’s feelings in real life, Robert is pretty firm on his beliefs about walking down the aisle.
“I don’t feel like marriage is that big a deal,” he told Shaun. “It just seems very simple… It’s like having a big birthday party. It’s like, if you wanna throw a really elaborate birthday party for your girlfriend, it’s kind of the same deal.”
