This Week's Issue: Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart share how they really feel about Edward and Bella in 'Breaking Dawn'


After playing the parts of Bella Swan and Edward Cullen for so long, is it any wonder that Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson can get heated talking about their characters? When EW sat down with the two stars and their director Bill Condon to talk about the upcoming Breaking Dawn Part 1 (in theaters Nov. 18), the penultimate chapter of the Twilight Saga, the 25-year-old actor spoke frankly. “Look, there are a lot of moments when Edward sort of acts like a p—y,” Pattinson said. “You can quote him on that!” Stewart laughed.

One example from Breaking Dawn? [Spoiler Alert!] When Bella is gravely ill, due to her pregnancy, yet still wants to spend time with the third prong of Twilight’s love triangle, Jacob (Taylor Lautner). “My wife is dying, I have completely f—ed up my life and hers, and Jacob’s like [To Bella] ‘Hey, baby, you don’t look too bad to me,’” Pattinson said. “And I’m just sitting there, like, with a bucket collecting [Bella’s] vomit. That really wouldn’t happen. I should have thrown the vomit at him.”

Pattinson also has some tongue-in-cheek criticism of his character in relation to the highly anticipated flurry-of-feathers scene. “I wanted to have it as a line so much,” Pattinson told EW, switching to an American/Edward Cullen accent. “I bit through all the pillows. Every. Single. One,'” he laughed. “And then he’d start crying. By the way, that’s what he should be ashamed of in the morning. All those beautiful pillows! Egyptian cotton! ‘I ruined this bed!'”

And then, of course, there’s the wedding scenes, which truly affected Stewart, much to a teasing Pattinson’s amusement.

“I could see her getting sort of emotionally affected by it and I almost didn’t want to stay at the end of the aisle,” Pattinson said. “I wanted to go down and say, ‘Stop being ridiculous’ [laughs].”

“I wanted to run down the aisle,” Stewart said. “I was literally pulling away from Billy [Burke, who plays her father]. Now it’s a trip to watch the wedding scenes especially. It was so volatile and emotional — I was being such a crazy person.”

For more with Stewart, Pattinson, and Condon — as well as exclusive images from Breaking Dawn Part 1 and this year’s Fall Movie Preview — pick up the new issue of Entertainment Weekly, on stands Friday, Aug. 12.

    Twilight is sh*t. I’ll be happy to never see these two actors again when it’s over.

    • Doug

      its a good story that bad acting and a horrible fan base has f**ked up.

      • neng

        I just know the movie is going to be a let down to the books just like HP 7 but is better than nothing .. can’t wait for the TV show!I am an Air Force and single at present .I need a woman who can love me back ..I also uploaded my hot photos on M’ilitaryloves .C óM under the name of cnuaw22..It’s the largest and best club for seeking Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force, Police Force, and the admirers of those who wear the uniform.I just hope you don’t mind me being a soldier …Please Check it out!I’m serious.

      • Danny

        a good story???!!! HAHAHAHHAHAHHAHHAA, have you tried reading those books? They are garbage. It makes me sad that this Mormon c*nt has gotten rich off writing romance novels that any other b*tch in America could have wrote in their sleep.

      • charlotte

        What’s with the sexism, Danny? I’m sure you can express your thoughts in a more intelligent manner.

      • Amber

        You’re probably right, Danny, any other of us b*tches could have written it first. Unfortunately that one wrote if first, so I guess I’d better get over it. It is pretty standard teen angst stuff with vampires thrown in. But that doesn’t really explain your hateful talk. I agree it’s stereotypically girly young adult material, nothing special. Although the sparkling is a nice touch.

      • mary

        How about those wolves? Bad acting, …..NO…..

    • emma

      I hope Twilight never ends but only as long and Edward and Bella are a part of it.

      • Ceci G

        I agree with Emma , I wish ” Twilight Saga ” was not coming to it’s end!!!!!

      • Robsessed

        Yeah same here! I love R.Pattz so much!!!!

      • joan

        i agree…excited because another twilight to watch on but sad to think that its come an end…we all love robert and krestin

    • jackie

      I’m not a huge fan of Twilight, but if you’ve seen Kristen and Robert’s other movies, they’re actually pretty good actors.

      • charlotte

        I have a lot of problems with Twilight as a story, but I find the two leads endlessly amusing in interviews.

      • Kimberly

        Thank You! I have been saying that for years now! Kristen: Speak. Robert: Bad Mother’s Handbook. For all of those haters out there they need to watch those movie and shut their mouths.

    • Horror fan

      They should honeymoon in Alaska, then the vampires from 30 Days of Night can find them and rip their throats out. You know, like real vampires do.

      • JR

        and you of course know all about real vampires, right?

    • nina

      hey just because you dont like twilight doesnt mean you have to be mean to the actors

      • mary

        I agree with you. There’s no need to be rude. Remember the saying “If you can’t say anything nice don’t say anything at all” Don’t bother to reply unless your a fan. Keep your negativity to yourself.

  • Monty

    Que up Harry Potter 7.2 vs Twilight 4.1 arguments…………………………………………

  • lisa

    OMG! spoilers was this authorized from the studio or some hacker. ill be glad when this trash is over and done with so EW can report other entertainment news.

  • J

    Well u still have more than a year
    so shut the f*ck up and get used to it

    • Danny

      Who are you talking to? The actors or us? We don’t have to get used to anything.

  • j

    I love how much disdain they have for their characters. You can tell they hate being a part of this. As well they should, this series is an embarrassment. At least they’re almost done!

    • Zturk

      all the way to the bank

    • Princess Leia

      all three of them are turnoffs. – Characters or real life. That is no way to act about the series that gives you the expensive whatever off your back. Although it is true.

      One thing Dan, Emma, Rupert and Tom did that was classy, is say though they want to expand their horizons they wont ever forget HP for what it gave each of them.

      • jackie

        I understand that you don’t like Twilight. But why the hell are you comparing Harry Potter to it? They’re nothing alike except that they’re both based on books. Christ.

      • Cecilia

        Rob Kristen and Taylor have said numerous times that they are very grateful for what the Twilight saga has done for them. Its fine to make fun of something you have a personal connection with. they’ve been playing these characters for years so they have a right to say how they feel & poke harmless fun once in a while.

      • Princess Leia

        when your target audience is gullible young girls I find it tasteless to use the word P__y. And yeah if you say ” Oh my character is such a Dork, but I love him. ” fine that is making humor and hamless fun. And they do act very immature all three of them for their ages. And I do not hear appreciation very much. In fact I havent heard it at all.

        Look around you. Why the Hell am I comparing HP to Twilight. Cause media outlets said ” OH Twilight is the new Harry Potter, Look out Harry there is a NEW Vampire in town” bunch of BS. Twilight is nothing more than a fad. And that was not responsible reporting. That was money grabbing. As is this stupid series.

      • Danny

        RPatz always looks scared when he is around her like he’s afraid of p*ssy. I think he was more honest when he made out with that Jacob guy at the MTV movie awards. This is a gay love storyline, Bella is just in the way.

    • JB

      Haha, Robert and Kristen not liking the books or characters are the reason I like watching the movies. Little traces of their disdain come through, and it’s awesome.

  • ‘Lish

    WHY ARE YOU PEOPLE READING THIS ARTICLE THEN?!? I’m so sick and tired of people hating on Twilight. You people make no sense. All you ever know how to do is be negative all the time. It’s beyond old. DO US A FAVOR AND READ SOMETHING ELSE THEN, YA ~!@#$%^ GERBILS. Have a great day!

    • madison

      get over it. and by the way it makes perfect sense. there are so many great, well made movies out there, but here is our generation, captivated by maybe the worst books ever written and an awful film series that continue to earn millions of dollars every day due to girls like you. grow up. people won’t stop hating twilight because it is a pointless fad. even the actors hate it but aren’t stupid enough to leave because of the publicity and fat check they get after every movie. you actually life this ****… you’re the one that doesn’t make sense

      • Caroline

        You’re reading an article about something you don’t like and Twilight fans don’t make sense? You know what, it doesn’t matter how much the haters hate on Twilight because the fans are still gonna love it and go see the movies and swamp the actors with love and attention and you will still be a bitter asshole.

      • JR

        Sorry, Madison, but based on the box office and the fandom throughout the world. Please note the facts here… it’s easy if you’re honest with yourself. You, and every other hater of this saga, whether it be the books or the films… or even the actors… ARE THE MINORITY… and it’s blatantly obvious this upsets you.

    • Javadude54

      Yo mama’s a gerbil, sucka.

    • dee

      This isn’t a Twilight fan site sweetie, get used to it!

      • Cecilia

        Yeah but it is a twilight article and a page that you opened on purpose just to say that. Kinda sad on your part huh? Let fans be happy! why ruin a comments page by hating on the movie/actors/fans? The movie is Still gonna come out and will Still be crazy successful (for a reason) and Still have more fans than many other movies that you watch so why not just give it a rest & move on?

      • Danny

        the same reason I won’t let Justin Bieber or Jersey Shore fans be happy, Cecilia, because you are all morons who ruin everything for everyone else by worshipping this garbage.

      • madison

        I’m sorry but Harry potter actually has more fans than twilight. Everyone knows that. Not to mention Harry potter fans are far more intelligent then “twihards” because they can actually READ and differentiate well-written literature from crap.

      • m1

        ALL Harry Potter fanatics are intelligent?

  • sally

    Twi haters go find somewhere else, its getting old
    I love these two, cant wait for the movie
    I love how these two dont gush over their characters, it makes them more real than anyone else in HW

    • Zturk

      The article is titled so that one of the main actors is insulting his character by calling him a p—y so why wouldnt haters read an article that they thought was agreeing with thier own views.

    • Princess Leia

      oh yeah… Rob, Taylor and KStew are everyday people. And especially down to earth in Hollywood. Are you kidding. They act like middle schoolers every-time they attend a award show, That Twilight always wins for some reason???

      • jackie

        Give me an example please. How do they “act like middle schoolers every-time they attend a award show”? Your grammar is absolutely terrible, by the way.

      • madison

        I think princess leia’s referring to how socially retarded they are when they accept awards…or speak at all in public

      • Princess Leia

        Terrible? because I accidentally said a award show instead of an award show. My…My..such drama queens.

        Stephanie Meyers writing is terrible so I guess you would recognize bad writing .

      • JR

        LOL… and this upsets you why? Actually, Kristen and Rob are VERY different from the normal Hollywood star. They are honest – not stuck on themselves – and… well… you see, Princess… it’s like this: They’re all that and will be around for a very long time. :-)

    • dee

      As i stated above.

      • Aisha

        I love kristen stewart and i think she will love me too. Because the way you act u are giveted and all so special i wish i could see you, you know how much i love you too

  • krisbian


    • JR

      Ditto… I love her, too… and she is cool. But given you’re a Krisbian, maybe my love for Kristen is slightly different then yours. :-)

  • StewyFan

    OK, well … I’m gonna be in the minority here and say how much I am looking forward to BDP1. I am a huge fan of Robert and Kristen. May not be the biggest fan of the book of Breaking Dawn, but curious none the less. This sounds like a fairly funny interview, which is what is always expected of Robert.

    • charlotte

      I’ll say this, I am totally looking forward to the craziness of Breaking Dawn. For the sheer over-the-top factor, I think it will be massively entertaining.

      • Danny

        I can’t wait until he rips out her uterus and she gives birth to the vampire baby and he eats the placenta and then Jacob imprints their baby daughter so he can have sex with her one day. that is so cooool!!! oh and religious too! Thanks Stephanie Meyer , you really represent the Mormon faith bc Joseph smith was a pedophile too!

  • Necro

    Please get a life, those obsessing over this tripe franchise, including EW bloggers.

  • Johanna

    Woooo!!! Breaking Dawn is going to be huge! I’ll be going on opening night with all the girls! Here come the girls! (Girls, Girls, Girls, Girls) OH YEAH BABY!!! :)
    Treated myself to a Thai massage today that felt sooo good and afterwards, people kept stopping me on the street to say, ‘Oh my God, you’re glowing.’

  • Carla

    You know men when it comes to Twilight, they become such little babies!
    Robert Pattinson is so cute and gorgeous! Sorry, guys. But I had to say it – he is so damn cute! Even though I’m just a few years older than him, I’d love to be a cougar for him! So far, unfortunately, I’ve been dealing with men with no backbone, who make promises they cannot keep. A lot of men can’t handle a strong woman. I won’t cry for all the hunger in my heart. I’m dying to have a baby. In fact, my biological clock is already ticking and I don’t know how to describe it. It’s just becoming a physical need now :)

  • Doctor Who Fan

    I just know the movie is going to be a let down to the books just like HP 7 but is better than nothing .. can’t wait for the TV show!

  • A

    Oh please! You get a life….if you hate this ‘tripe franchise’ why are you posting on an article about Twilight? Go somewhere else please. There is nothing wrong with Twilight. Some people like and some don’t. Just like every other movie in the HISTORY of time.

    • carly

      Except its not like every other movie in the history of time… it’s much, much worse. I mean I’ve actually read these POS and breaking dawn is by far the worst (if thats even possible). they spend the whole freaking book building up to this ‘fight’ that’s supposed to be huge….and it never happens. like ok stephanie meyer thanks for that one! just build up the climax… and then nothing. honestly how the hell they are making this into two movies i will never understand. there. is. no. plot. they just want to milk the franchise as much as they can before it ends. im sorry but people will always hate twilight. you just have to deal with it.

      • Michelle

        I love people who claim they’ve read the entire Twilight saga but they believe the books suck and are terribly written. Guess what? If I read a book and don’t like it, I sure as hell don’t go buy and read the sequels. Duh.

        I bet half the people who claim they’ve read the entire saga are just BSing. It’s the internet after all.

      • carly

        hahahaha oh trust me i’ve read them. but back when in first came out and no one gave a crap about it (including you Michelle). i was 12 and stupid as **** for thinking that series was good. that’s the thing about twilight 75% of of its fans are 12 year old girls who think that this is what a healthy relationship is like. the other 15% is made up of 45 to 50 something year old women. so anyway when twilight got popular i decided to reread the first three (breaking dawn wasn’t out yet) and realized they. are. horrible. the writing quality is bad, the relationships are creepy, bella is pathetic, and so on. Honestly i can’t even forgive myself for the tween obsession i had for it. The whole series is a joke. Not to mention the fact that Stephanie Meyer stole practically 3/4 of the story from other vampire books that came out wayy before hers. It’s trash. But hey if you want to fill your mind with trash, go ahead. I’m just tired of EW covering it, but I guess they have to to keep the tweens like you happy….unless you’re a 50 year old mom

      • A

        No i don’t think we really do have to deal with it…the franchise has made more money than you could ever even dream of….it doesn’t really matter what anyone thinks anymore. If you don’t like it…that’s your issue…but coming on here to post on a Twilight related article when you don’t like the series is pathetic….Twilight haters need to realize that you only make yourselves look stupid by coming on here to complain…you all have a bad case of sour grapes…don’t you have anything better to do?

    • reallyseeyou

      This comment I agree with. Just stumbled onto this site and as I’m reading – I’m wondering. Don’t any of you have anything better to do that sit around movie bashing?!

      • Aisha

        The movie is so good i have been been waiting for breaking down part 2 and i knew it will be intresting .kristen and robert and the most beautiful lover in twilight

  • Michelle

    Love these two. Their take on their characters is always funny, especially Rob. As for the typical EW trolls who come here and bash Twilight, haters to the LEFT. Your comments aren’t even funny or clever anymore.

    • Aisha

      This story is pathetic it so intresting i wish it true
