Fun ‘Twilight’ facts from Robert Pattinson and Ashley Greene

Ashley Greene and Robert Pattinson

1. Pattinson loves junk food

In “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1,” the fourth in the series, newlyweds Edward (Robert Pattinson) and Bella (Kristen Stewart) finally go all the way. In preparation for the stripped-down honeymoon scene, Pattinson, 25, put in four months of solid work outs.

“Because I very rarely exercise and really don’t like going to the gym, I had to make it extreme,” he says. “I had to cut out beer and cut out junk food, which is basically my entire life, and I had to replace that with going to the gym and working out, basically all day, every day. I went to the gym pretty much at four in the morning and worked out for two hours and then went to work and then ran. It was absolutely exhausting.”

2. Greene gets dramatic

His co-star Ashley Greene, 24, who plays Edward’s sister Alice, also shows a new side in the movie, albeit a more emotional one. As the Cullens’ especially talented psychic, Alice is haunted by frightening premonitions.

“You will see Alice being emotionally tortured and a little tormented inside. She wants to protect and support Bella and the two emotions are in conflict. That was one of the great things of having a saga that gives you [time] to develop your character,” she says.

3. The birthing scene was horrific

In this installment —spoiler alert! — Bella becomes pregnant and the baby is half vampire. According to Pattinson and Greene, the birth scene was one of the most memorable during the movie shoot.

“The director Bill Condon made some really bloody horror movies early on in his career and we shot it like a straight horror scene,” says Pattinson. “I saw one cut, and if you had added some other music and other sound effects you wouldn’t want to watch the screen. They could definitely do a version of this movie for adults only.”

Greene remembers the day as one of the most hysterical.

“We were nervous and didn’t know how to pull this off. It was so intense. You can’t relate to a baby that is destroying its mother. It translates much better on film and it looks good, but when we were filming it nobody knew what was happening!”

4. Rob sings!

“I’m not making a record. … I record stuff all the time but have no intention to release it. People hate actors who release music so much that the majority of people would hate it just because it exists. It’s too personal for me to dirty it with people’s judgement.” - Pattinson, denying rumors that
he is going to release a record

Oh come on, RPatz! How can you neglect the legions of Twihards who would buy three copies each of you doing bird calls if that’s what you felt like doing? We’ll give the man some time and maybe he’ll come around.
