“The Twilight Saga: Eclipse” may have sweeped the MTV Movie Awards tonight, but we’re here to bring you some—perhaps—even more important information related to “Breaking Dawn.” That’s right, we’ve got wedding scoop straight from the mouth of Robert Pattinson.
We caught up with the man better known as Edward Cullen after his Movie Awards win for Best Male Performance. While he was still reveling in the excitement from taking the Golden Popcorn, he was willing to look to the future and tell us how awesome his upcoming onscreen wedding is going to be.
“It’s very pretty, very sweet,” he said. “Hopefully it will be good.”
Apparently that adorable-looking walk down the aisle was all Kristen and not as much RPattz, he admitted.
“I didn’t really do much other than just stand there,” he said with a laugh. “Which I guess is what most guys do.”
And he had nothing but glowing things to say about his on- and off-screen lady love and her performance.
“She looked amazing,” he said, adding that the dress looked amazing. “She got to do the whole walking down the aisle and everything.”
Elizabeth Reaser (aka Esme Cullen) spoke with MTV at the Sundance Film Festival in Utah over the weekend and admitted to being afraid of Vampire Bella. She also gave lots of praise to Mackenzie Foy (aka Renesmee Cullen).
During a break from the “Breaking Dawn” set in Louisiana, Ashley Greene answered some questions for MTV via e-mail, hitting on subjects like working with Miley Cyrus, her most anticipated Breaking Dawn movie scene and what it was like to see Kristen Stewart as a vampire.
MTV: 2011 is shaping up to be a big year for you, coming off all the “Twilight” exposure and now having some prominent roles in “The Apparition,” “LOL” and a bunch of other projects coming down the line. Does 2011 feel like it’s going to be a particularly big year?
Ashley Greene: Definitely. I’m very excited for it. While it will be sad to finish filming the last installment of “The Twilight Saga,” I’m grateful to have so much to look forward to. There’s so much going on and so many wonderful opportunities popping up for 2011, and somehow I feel very Zen right now — I’m in a good place!
MTV: Do you have any goals for the year beyond what you’re already doing? What would you like to look back on at the end of the year and say, “I’m glad I accomplished that”?
Greene: “Twilight” and my upcoming projects have given me an amazing platform. I’m looking forward to doing as many diverse projects and roles as I can fit in this year! I’m also looking forward to continuing to make strides with mark’s m.powerment campaign; it’s important to me that I use my voice to inspire my young, female fans to pursue their dreams, just like I did. I’m so thankful for everything in 2010 and am extremely optimistic and excited about how much more can be accomplished this year.
MTV: What “Breaking Dawn” scene are you most excited to film?
Greene: Most excited to film and see would be the big fight sequence against the Volturi. As a cast, we like to do as many of our own stunts as possible, so it’s fun and challenging to shoot those scenes. Jeff Imada, the stunt coordinator, is such a blast to work with as well. I’m learning so much from him.
MTV: Tell us about Bill Condon’s style on set. How does he differ from prior “Twilight” directors?
Greene: “There’s no way to describe what it’s like working with Bill Condon except incredible! He is so professional, patient and a fantastic leader. I get excited going to set every day knowing I get to work with him. Each director has brought such a different energy and perspective to the films. Bill is very relaxed and authoritative, in a good way. I feel very comfortable working with him.
MTV: Kristen Stewart said at the People’s Choice Awards that she filmed some scenes as a vampire. What was your reaction to seeing Kristen as a vamp?
Greene: Glad to have her officially join the Cullen family!
Yesterday we released a brand new list of fresh new people who were added to the Breaking Dawn movie cast! (Click here if you missed it. To see all their pics click here). The only thing is, Summit didn’t state which supporting roles these new cast members would take on. Luckily, MTV has made an attempt to figure out who could be playing which character:
The 36-year-old actor best known for his work in “2012″ and “X2″ is a dead ringer for the balding, middle-aged attorney James Jenks that Bella deals with several times over the course of “Breaking Dawn.” He has a fairly important part in the story, so it makes a lot of sense that an established actor would be cast in the role instead of a newcomer, like some of the new vampires were. Keep reading after the jump to see the other seven actors cast and which of the remaining roles—Isle Esme employees? J. Jenks and associates? Volturi posse?—we think they’ll be playing.
A seasoned actor thanks to roles in “The Wire” and “Treme” who seems to match the vague description given for Jenks’s in-between man Max. He is described as having “crinkly black hair” and “dark skin” that was “smooth and perfect,” a contradiction to his teeth that were “white and straight.” Though his age isn’t given, it can be assumed that an older man (like Wendell) would be working for Jenks, and not someone younger.
Nahuel is described as having skin that is an “impossibly rich, dark brown,” “warm teak” eyes and hair that was “black and braided, too, like the woman’s, though not as long.” Amadou Ly might not have that hair in the pictures we’ve seen online, but the 22-year-old Senegalian actor definitely satisfies Nahuel’s description in every other way.
It seems very likely that Hispanic actress Carolina Virguiez will be playing Huilen, who is (based on the information in the book) probably in her 20s or 30s and is described as a “small olive-toned female vampire with a long braid of black hair.” Since Huilen is Machupe, an indigenous inhabitant of south-central Chile and southwestern Argentina, Carolina seems like a perfect match, but she also could be playing Kaure, a Brazilian employee at Isle Esme described as being “a slight female” with a face “creased with lines.”
Kristen Stewart talks Breaking Dawn updates and about the fact that she hasn’t met her & Robert Pattinson’s onscreen daughter, Mackenzie Foy, yet. In the last video – Kristen is asked if she is aware of what a Krisbian is! Check out her responses!
“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.”
The “Twilight” gang loves Chris Weitz. There’s no doubting that. In the run-up to the release of the Weitz-helmed “New Moon,” Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner spoke effusively about working with the director, even hoping he might reprise his role behind the camera for “Breaking Dawn.”
Weitz ended up declining the opportunity to bring the final book in the vampire series to the big screen, but he remains flattered that the cast supports him and even has a bit of advice for “Breaking Dawn” director Bill Condon (“Dreamgirls”).
“That’s very sweet,” Weitz told MTV News when reminded of how the cast has championed him. “I think that’s because I was the last person who directed them.”
Weitz, who led “New Moon” to more than $700 million in worldwide box-office receipts, is confident that Condon is the right man to step into the director’s chair for “Breaking Dawn.” “I think he’s terribly talented,” Weitz said. “I know him, he’s a solid citizen, great guy, very smart. I think he’s going to do an amazing job.”
His one piece of advice? “Think carefully about babies clawing out of people’s stomachs,” Weitz said in reference to one scene in the book, going on to refer to an even more famous scene in 1979′s “Alien.” “[Director] Ridley Scott sort of did it.”
Weitz added with a laugh, “Kristen Stewart giving live birth through the stomach in 3-D! I’m there. I’m paying.”
And he’d be happy to pay for not just one film, but two. It has long been rumored that “Breaking Dawn” will be split into two flicks. That’s a move Weitz endorses.
“The book is big enough that it would warrant it,” he said.
