Seventeen Mag talks to Rob at the WFE premiere

Rob and co-star Reese Witherspoon turned up at the New York premiere tonight, to talk about the movie and their characters. When we asked Rob what he found most attractive about Marlena (Reese's character, and the woman he falls in love with in the movie), here's what he had to say:

Rob Pattinson: "Just her energy. She's extremely charismatic. Especially for [my character] Jacob, being able to see that is amazing. He grew up in upstate New York on a farm, so you're not going to see that many superstars!"

PS, when we asked him whether he thought it was weird to play a character named Jacob, he said:

Rob Pattinson: "I didn't, until I was promoting the movie. Then I realized I'd set myself up for something!"

And PPS, he showed up at the premiere almost an hour early, so he could talk to all of the fans across the street, take pics with them, and sign autographs. Adorable.

Candids of Kristen leaving Vancouver this morning


Collapse )

Kristen Stewart left Vancouver early this morning, gone for good having wrapped all shooting requirements in Canada. There’s still a little more work to be done though. 

On Monday she was expected back on set in Vancouver where she worked until yesterday and, as you can see, is heading out for a little break before my sources tell me exclusively she’ll work on reshoots in the Virgin Islands where she and Robert Pattinson are expected to polish a few honeymoon scenes before finally closing production on a franchise that has dominated their lives for 3 years. 


More WFE press junket interviews

Thanks Pattinsonladies for the compilation :) 

Interview w/Buzzine Film

One of the most recognizable faces in Hollywood, Robert Pattinson tries to avoid cameras while continuing his successful acting career with new period romance Water for Elephants with Reese Witherspoon. The handsome actor sat down with Buzzine and opened up about the difficulties his Twilight success has caused in his life, his concept of love, and working with dangerous animals on this film.  
Emmanuel Itier:  How was it with working all these wild animals, and has your conception of circuses changed while doing this movie in the sense of how they treat animals?
Robert Pattinson:  I don’t really know how circuses themselves treat animals.  I know a lot of circuses get a bad name for it, but none of the animals we had were from circuses; they were all film animals and stuff.  I know how hard it must be. It must be just ridiculous because it’s relentless…because of the amount of injuries the animals get and stuff.  For instance, with the horses -- to teach those horses the tricks that they needed to know, it took months and months and months and months.  If one of them goes down, there’s no back-up or anything.  It’s going to take another six months to train a horse.  It’s so precarious, running a circus so much.  But working with wild animals, for me, was one of the things which I thought made the job easier.  Even before we started, I was thinking it’s like doing a job where you’re just working with babies all the time, because the babies are going to do their own thing and you just react to the baby.  I mean, if you've got an elephant in the scene and the elephant is kind of doing whatever it wants, it’s so easy to play anything because you suddenly have a trunk in your face or something, and then you've got to just make something up.  No one expects the scene to be totally perfect because everyone has accepted that these are wild animals, and whatever comes will come.  It’s not all like, “The animal's got to hit its mark!” It’s never going to be like that.  It made it very a relaxing set, in a weird sort of way.
EI:  Were there any scary moments at all with the animals?
RP:  There was one with the zebras.  They’re a lot smarter than horses, and you cannot control them.  They’re impossible to tame.  If you tie them down, they just drag the rope out, and if they didn’t drag the rope out, they just keep kicking anything around.  One of them pulled away and ran toward me.  It was part of the scene and I got out of the way.  I found out afterwards that everyone thought I was a pussy for getting out of the way.  Apparently Christoph [Waltz] had gotten in front of Reese [Witherspoon] and other actresses in apparently protecting them.  I was just like, “Really? Christoph was going to risk his life for the scene?  Why didn’t he just get out of the way?”  I watched back the playback and Reese just grabbed Christoph and used him as a shield from the zebra.  It’s very funny, and he’s going around claiming like, “Yeah, I just ran in front of them. [Laughs] The zebra was not going to get past me.”

Latest in 'Breaking Dawn'

Breaking Dawn reshoots/new scenes to be filmed in the Caribbean? 


...but, Lainey mentioned "reshoots of the honeymoon scene"? Who cares! St. Thomas = sun, sand, beach, I approve!

2nd Unit returns to shoot in Vancouver

Newsfic Blog: "Second unit shoot meaning no sound or dialogue by actors. It was stunt work with stunt actors and some main actors. I was able to watch Kristen Stewart as long as I didn't take out my camera.  She arrived with John her assistant and her personal protection team.  There was a set containment woman who spent at least 2 hours wrapping up the set so no one can watch what was going on.  There were at least 12 set containment day workers to patrol the woods and park and prevent people from taking photographs. Kristen arrived, did her work and left after 45 minutes. They were so concerned with someone taking a photo, they had someone ride on the treadmill with Kristen holding an umbrella. It was great to see her run and in her Vampire dress.  She actually has a great running style albiet it was fake running on a treadmill. It was a fun day"

We posted other pics of Kristen from that day HERE

More on the Rio premiere

O Globo: "Paris Filmes confirmed that "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1" will have a premiere in the city on the second half of the years, with the presence of stars of the film. Unlike the release of "New Moon", which brought Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner to Sao Paulo in 2009 only to meet with the press, this time the actors will attend a premiere with red carpet and celebrities in the audience.  According to a spokesperson for the Paris Filmes, which has the distribution rights of movies, "Twilight" in Brazil, is still not decided if the "Dawn" premiere will be in the same way as that of "Rio" and "The Fast and the Furious Five," ie, whether it is the first city to show the film in the presence of the entire cast and the international press, or just be one of the tour's launch film.  In August or September there will be confirmation of the names that will be attending the premiere, and size, date and venue"

"The premiere is confirmed. Although no date. And no detail"

"The campaign launch of BD in Brazil, piloted by Paris Filmes, will be the largest ever for a movie in Brazil"

Old news as new

"The first official trailer for BD will be displayed exclusively by MTV during the 2011 MMA, in June.
And soon be on MTV's website"

Peter Facinelli on the Breaking Dawn wedding scene - "Beautiful & Spectacular"


"Beautiful and spectacular," he said. "It's funny, because whenever we have a big important scene on 'Twilight' [movies], it rains. I was doing the baseball sequence [from 'Twilight'], and it was raining. But you never see it on film," he said of the filmmaking crew's movie magic. "
With this wedding, it rained the whole time we shot the two scenes. But you'll never see it on film, they block out the rain. They put tarps up and you'll never see it. But for us, it was very wet and muddy and cold."
