The latest round of talk-show musical chairs continues for the cast of "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2" as co-stars Nikki Reed and Mackenzie Foy stopped by "The Ellen DeGeneres" show today to chat about the film franchise's finale, due in theaters November 16.
As any Twilighter can attest, Mackenzie's on-screen alter ego, Renesmee, goes through quite the evolution in this conclusion, aging from a newborn baby to a young child in a manner of weeks (thanks, vampire blood!). And for the young starlet playing the adorable half-human, half-vampire wunderkind, it made for some surreal moments on set.
"It's kind of weird because it's not my body," Mackenzie said of the special effects used to paste her face onto different children—and props.
Taylor Lautner's well-chiseled torso isn't a new sight for fans of "The Twilight Saga"—they've been drooling over that six-pack ever since the 20-year-old bulked up for "New Moon." And, as a shapeshifter, Taylor's used to losing his clothes when he morphs into his wolfy alter ego. But, as it turns out, Taylor doffs his top (and bottoms!) in a much more interesting fashion in the film franchise's finale.
During our recent MTV First: "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2," Josh Horowitz asked the cast to offer up their favorite scene from the final film, and co-star Kristen Stewart relayed this gem: "My favorite scene in the second part of 'Breaking Dawn' is probably when he takes his clothes off in front of my father," she said, pointing to Taylor.
"That's an amazing scene," Taylor agreed. "I still had to take off my shirt, but at least it wasn't rid—no, it still was ridiculous. I took my pants off."
MTV News' Twi-Fight Saga continues with round five, in which 4 of Stephenie Meyer's vampires will do battle for the title of No. 1 "Twilight" character. Each round a "Twilight" expert will weigh in on who she thinks will take the entire tournament. Today, Elena Raines of Twilightish shares her pick for victor.
We're down to the Final Four, and I don't think there's any question who will be advancing to the next round. On one hand we have Edward vs. Kate. While we've gotten a glimpse at Kate in "Breaking Dawn - Part 1," fans won't get a chance to appreciate her sassy attitude and her bad-ass vampire gift until seeing seeing "Breaking Dawn - Part 2." But even after seeing the final installment of "The Twilight Saga" myself and watching Kate gallantly defend the Cullens, I can safely say that that my vote is for Edward, and I'm certain the fandom will agree.
The end is near—not only for one of our favorite film franchises, but also for MTV News' hotly contested Twi-Fight Saga, in which 64 of Stephenie Meyer's vampires, werewolves and humans have been battling it out for the title of No. 1 "Twilight" character.
The Final Four is officially underway, and it's all vamps, all the time. You may recall that Fork's finest (a.k.a. Charlie Swan) was the last human standing in our Elite Eight round, and well, he finally fell at the hands of newborn bloodsucker Bella. (And this, after she showed up mom Renee in the second round!)
Clearly, this is Edward and Bella's tournament to lose. Mrs. Cullen now faces brother-in-law Jasper, while Mr. Cullen hopes to best Denali coven dame Kate, who should definitely win some kind of honor for being the longest-lasting bottom seed. (We're still scratching our head over how she beat Emmett...)
The one "Twilight Saga" scene Robert Pattinson would like to reshoot out of the entire series is probably not the one you'd expect. There are many iconic moments in the vampire film franchise, and the first kiss between Bella and Edward is definitely towards the top of the list. But, as it turns out, Rob isn't as big a fan of that scene as we are.
When he, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner sat down with MTV News for MTV First: "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2," one fan asked which scene the cast would like a do-over on. Rob admitted that he wants to try out the first kiss scene again.
The Elite Eight round of MTV News' epic Twi-Fight Saga is winding down (seriously, less than two hours to go, guys!), and if you're still undecided as to which of Stephenie Meyer's characters deserve your vote, perhaps you should take a gander at this here video. Because when we caught up with the cast of "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2" recently, several of the stars delivered impassioned pleas for their favorite vampire or human (if not themselves).
Unsurprisingly, Kristen Stewart was pretty certain her alter ego Bella Swan had this one in the bag. "I think I've proved time and time again that old Bella represents and comes out on top," she said confidently. "Done. I've got it."
But Bella better watch her back, because it seems several stars have a sweet spot for her sheriff father, Charlie Swan, whom she's facing in the Elite Eight.
In a scene that sounds reminiscent of a certain "Twilight" moment in Port Angeles, actress Christian Serratos let her Twitter followers know that she's on the hunt for a fabulous frock for the upcoming "Breaking Dawn - Part 2" premiere on November 12 in L.A.
(If we've learned anything from the movies, Christian, don't leave the store in the dark by yourself!)
With "The Twilight Saga" coming to a close, our own Josh Horowitz sat down with stars Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner to take one final look at the series during Thursday's MTV First. Be sure to check it out!
It was the beginning of the end last night during our final First dedicated to all things "Twilight." But before you dissolve into crying jags with only your Edward Cullen body pillow to wipe your tears, there's plenty to celebrate. Like, you know, the fact that we got an entire 30 minutes with Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner. And they did and said a lot of things. A lot of cool, fun, awesome, vampirey, werewolfy things! And we have a few favorite moments—five to be exact. So check them out after the jump and be sure to leave your own faves in the comments below!
Robert feels up...Taylor?!
During a segment in which Josh Horowitz asked the cast to reflect on a number of the saga's most memorable moments (vampire baseball, anyone?), Robert admitted that the tent scene in "Eclipse" ended up a bit handsier than the script directions called for. Mostly because he kept slapping Taylor's, um, manpecs. "I remember grabbing your boob all the time in this one," Robert said to Taylor.
If you tuned into last night's MTV First: "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2" featuring stars Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner, you not only got a sneak peek at their hotly anticipated November 16 release, but also a first look at (listen to?) the clandestine screenplay for follow-up "Breaking Dawn - Part 3." Never mind that it was actually penned by MTV News' Josh Horowitz and clearly not sanctioned by series author Stephenie Meyer.
And despite its unauthorized status, the trio was willing to do a cold read-through of the script—a read-through that, if we're being honest, went off the rails quite quickly. In fact, the cast didn't even make it all the way through their sides. But it's okay, because the screenwriter has given us permission to post the scene in its entirety. Check it out after the jump!
"Twilight" stars Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart cut quite the freakish form on Halloween when they showed up to a fete at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery wearing bizarre transparent masks, which looked like props straight out of a slasher flick. Though Kristen later changed into a more conventional disguise—a pink bobbed wig and sunglasses—we couldn't help but ask the duo what was up with that when we had them in our studio last night for MTV First: "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2."
"Oh yeah, I look awesome," Kristen said when presented with the photo of her and Rob at the party. "That's not fair. That's actually a really weird [photo]."
Poor angles aside, Kristen spilled that her get-up was an homage to one of her favorite movies. "I love 'Closer,'" she said of the 2004 drama starring Julia Roberts, Jude Law and Natalie Portman. "If you've seen that, that's one aspect of [Natalie's] character. She changes a lot in that movie, but that's one part, yeah."
