sort of very classic and traditional and timeless and Kristen looked absolutely gorgeous. I feel like, that was probably the hardest part of finishing these movies, was saying good bye to her.Rosalie, in this movie, is really more of a protector than she's ever been before, so did you kind of relate with that personality trait in her.I guess I did. Her and I have a lot of similarities, I feel. And she's very, you know, strong and unafraid of who she is, and I feel like those are two things that I have tried to, you know, sort of, take from her and learn from. Rosalie and Bella also grow a lot closer in this film, so was it nice to be able to bond that way on screen, finally? It was, because Kristen and I have been friends for so long and it's actually not weird at all to be friends with someone who you're supposed to hate in a film, or have like friction with, we just laugh it off. But, it was nice to actually...it was bizarre. It felt bizarre to be like, hey, we're not...there's no like mean look going on. Right.I'm actually helping. You're asking me a question. You know, I'm doing you a favor. You're asking me to help you up or I'm getting you a plate of food. I mean, it was different, yeah.Right. Now I have to hear about this wedding scene. What were some of the great lengths they went to to sort of keep everything under wraps? Gosh, I don't even know because they kept everything a secret from us. All the dresses were kept a secret even from one another. I didn't know what any anyone else's dresses looked like. It was just...Oh, wow.Yeah, that's just how it is. I mean, it's all a big secret. What was it like then when you saw Kristin come down the aisle in that amazing dress? It was stunning. It was beautiful. It was, you know, sort of very classic and traditional and timeless. And Kristin looked absolutely gorgeous.Was there anything from the wedding that inspired your own wedding? My wedding was much more casual and sort of like relaxed and not as conventional. It was like, you know, hay bales and twinkle lights and no shoes and that kind of thing, which Edward Cullen would not have been okay with. That's true. This one was a little over the top. Yeah, but it needed to be. It was the wedding of the century or whatever. where I needed to be.With Breaking Dawn coming to a close, have you kind of envisioned, if the series were to go on, what would happen for Rosalie in her life and love?Her and Emmit are meant to be, they're not, nothing is happening there. I guess she will get to be a mom, you know, and so, depending on at what age Renesa stops growing and what happens.Right.And there, you know, she'll have that sort of opportunity.What do you think you're going to miss most, once the Twilight Saga is over?I think I'll miss Rosalie the most. Ya, I really love the character I play, I do, I have a lot of respect for her and I feel like that was probably the hardest part of finishing these movies, with saying goodbye to her.
