Breaking Dawn Press Conference at Comic-Con With Robert Pattinson

Robert Pattinson Talks Shirtless Anxiety and More With Kristen and Taylor at Breaking Dawn Press Conference

Before taking the stage for their big Breaking Dawn panel at Comic-Con, the movie's biggest stars — Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, and Taylor Lautner — did a press conference with reporters about the film. As usual, the close-knit trio brought plenty of laughs as Rob revealed ideas for a new Twilight film, Kristen lamented having trouble working with kids on set, and Taylor talked about his big imprinting scene. Here are the fun highlights:

On the most secretive scenes to film:
KS: "The wedding, definitely. It was Secret-Service-style insane. The crew was completely inconvenienced. No phones, no emails . . . but I was like 'If this dress gets on the Internet, I'll die.' I had a Volturi cloak on, that was all we had to cover up, it was really funny."

On whether Breaking Dawn is the end of the Twilight Saga:
RP: [Laughing] "Breakfast time! Twilight, Eclipse, Breakfast Time . . . I guess you'd have to talk to Stephenie really."
Bill Condon: "It's the end of the Bella/Edward story I think. But there are so many different characters, I'm sure she'd want to revisit them sometime."


On their favorite scenes to film:
TL: "I've always been able to choose one, but this one I can't with this movie. There's so much going on in this movie and all of the characters are dealing with their own little things. It's impossible for me to choose. Jacob changes so much from the beginning to the end, so it's hard for me to choose."
KS: "There's a scene with me and Charlie at the wedding that I love so much. And also with Renee. I really love them."
RP: "The birth scene is so different from everything else in the movie. For a fantasy series it goes quite far. It's hardcore, it's graphic. There's no other way to do it. It was fun."

To see what scenes made them nervous and what it was like working with kids on set, just


On fans getting access to footage:
KS: "We didn't know when we were being photographed and stuff, that was always a weird experience after the fact."
TL: "A lot of the movie takes place inside, so most of the time spent in Baton Rouge on a stage. Breaking Dawn is very intimate, and they did a really good job allowing us to be creative. We really didn't have to focus on being distracted on this movie."
KS: "They protected us!"

On filming in Brazil:
TL: "I wasn't there, but they told me there was an extra that looked just like me . . . and then they showed me a picture and even I thought it was me!"

On relating to Bella's emotional roller coaster:
KS: "Really, with everything I do, it's hard to take myself out of it. I'd been building up to these moments for four years. This one has really cathartic, impactful, huge life moments and they are very rooted in a reality that I can completely see myself in. Anyone who reads the book can imagine it. I do feel like it's very close to the book, but we also sort of added in some bits. There are some surprises that surprised me too."
BC: "There's no bigger Twilight fan than Kristen."

On nerdy things they've learned about each other:
KS: "Breakfast time!"
KS: "Taylor can dance! He can move his hips better than I will ever dream. Literally. He can move."
RP: "That's not nerdy, that's awesome!"
TL: "You're right, I can do that one. In the hair and makeup trailer, breaking it down."

On what scenes they were nervous about filming:
TL: "I was pretty nervous about imprinting. I was given an X [where Renesemee would be] on a wall, and I had to walk into a room on the verge of killing this baby, and then stop twist and imprint on it, whatever that means. Stop, twist. and imprint. It was challenging. I spent a lot of time talking to Bill and to Stephenie [Meyer]. What exactly does imprinting even look like? It was tough so I sure hope it comes across alright."
RP: "Embarrassingly, the thing I was most nervous about was to take my shirt off. So much of the books are about Edward's body . . . I think in the book it's mentioned every three pages."

On the most awkward scene to film:
KS: "I couldn't pick up the kid sometimes. We had Mackenzie Foy, who is an amazing little kid. Like the coolest kid ever. Smarter than me in a lot of ways. Then we had these other girls to play the younger version of Mackenzie. They're all great, awesome kids, but I'm awkward, I can't handle that. I look ridiculous picking them up, they were bigger than me in some cases!"
RP: "We had an animatronic baby for one bit . . ."
KS: ". . . And to read the books, and it's such a great scene, and then to know . . . "
RP: ". . . And to see that it's Chucky from Child's Play."
KS: "And it had hair! And it's a newborn baby."
RP: "I bet you've never seen a baby with a wig on it!"

On being creeped out by older fans:
RP: "I'm not creeped out at all by it. To be creeped out by it, you'd have to be creeped out by middle-aged women. Different strokes for different folks I guess. [Laughs] I don't even know what that means."

Breaking Dawn posters are everywhere in major theaters of our country!!! Everybody's excited to see the movie! I bet it's going to be blockbuster movie bigger than Captain America and Harry Potter! But honestly, i also feel so sad because I know it's going to be the last of the Twilight Saga. Bill Condon said it all depends on the author Stephenie Meyer because there are other characters in the movie to start continuation of new Twilight storyline. But if Edward and Bella are not the lead characters, what's the use of Rob and Kristen's fans supporting Twilight? The success of Twilight is not solely because of the book itself but also primarily because of the amazing on and off screen tandem of Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart. I really hope Breaking Dawn is not the end of Twilight Saga!

I love the whole series, and am never tired of hearing about them. The excitement from fans will come back when the release of the movies get closer. I think "Breakfast Time" is related to what is next after "Breaking Dawn." It's almost time for "breakfast" after "dawn." I think...:)

I agree with TRH 37. I love the Edward/Bella characters. If it was a Jacob movie with TL. I would never support it.

I thought I heard Stephanie once mention that she would like to go back and write about the Cullens before they became the Cullens and focus more on their relationships with all the other vampire families that we didn't get to learn about until the last book. I think that would be good and interesting if they did that.

Nope, Not me. I'm very excited for this movie., I feel like Kristen., everything they have worked so very hard towards on & in the other movies all comes down to this movie alone. So, Summit better not mess it up. :) I love that they are split in two movies., because that gives more time for each and less hopefully to be cut out from the book., I don't like when they cut to much from the books. I don't like having to wait a whole year inbetween...I see them moving up the Part 2 one...once this one comes like July of 2012....or something. I don't want it to end. But, you can only do so much., if they continue it without more Edward & Bells Story and focus on other characters., it will ruin everything. This Saga is all about Edward/Bella and if they continue it with just Jacob and Renesmee or other characters people will def. loose interest. It would have to be about Edward/Bella and Renesmee's life as a family with the Cullens more., not with the Wolves and others as much. If they continue anything it has to have Edward and Bella and Renesmee in it....but they can't switch the cast on any part....all the original cast has to be in it. Or again, it will ruin everything. :)

I am like some other folks here. I read the books and enjoyed them. I even liked the first movie. But, the hype, time lapse, and obsession has caused me to falter. I think the constant coverage of Rob/Kristen has truly shunned many fans from the actual story and books. JMO I will see this movie at the matinee for $5.00; but, only due to the fact I should finish it out.

I think the Breakfast Time thing was an inside joke with the cast...from what it sounds at least. I have to agree with you likethedirection....I was a huge Twilight fan and was super excited for the last 3 movies but I am not as excited for this one. I'm not sure yet if its because there has been so much time past or something else. I really do want it to all be over so that they can all move on to other projects but I also fear seeing this book played out in film. It was a great book and the last book and I don't want to be disappointed. I feel like I already am a little upset its in 2 parts...just not seeing a good way to break it up since majority of the drama and romance happens at the beginning and the action happens at the end of the book. I like seeing the 2 combined into one movie...its help us drag our husbands to the theater :)

I really wish they didn't wait so long in between movies. I've lost a lot of my Twilight obsessiveness. :) I feel like such a bad fan.

I know there are many many Twilight fans that follow Popsugar but I just am sooo ready for these movies to be over so that there aren't so many posts with these stars. The books were a fun easy read and the movies are entertaining enough but MAN the hype/obsession is bordering on crazytown. (Although maybe I shouldn't talk because I can't get enough of the Harry Potter stars) :)
