Box Office Magazine interviews Kristen Stewart again.
What’s it like working on a film where people are so fascinated by the tiny details? However you and your hair designer decide to style your hair for the wedding, thousands of girls are going to copy it for their own wedding or prom.It’s funny. It’s something you have to put out of your mind while you’re working, or else it’s incredibly heavy, it weighs you down. You want to do something that is clear to you. But at the same time, it makes it exciting, like, “I hope they like it!” I’m also on their level: ’m just as worried about how the hair is going to look. It’s just not normal for other people to be as concerned about something that you’re concerned about on the movie. Usually, people don’t know, people don’t care. It’s unique, really unique in that way. I’ve never experienced that on another project.
You mentioned all the directors you’ve been through. That makes you and Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner the old guard—you know the characters and this world so well. What do you tell the directors when they start?Everyone was so different, it always felt fresh. As much as going back and working with Rob and Taylor and the rest of the cast and everyone else who’d been there the whole time was like picking up where we left off, at the same time we were pretty accepting of the fact that we were going to have different directors on every one. The director, you follow him. He sets the tone 100 percent. I love that. Feeling lost is not a cool thing and I rely heavily on directors. It’s the nature of doing the job—I don’t dictate, he does. Everyone genuinely had different ideas—not even different ideas, they were moved by very different things. The things that got them off about the project were all very, very different. That was interesting to see.

weeks before the film. He's continued to remain tight-lipped about some
details (which will make for a better moviegoing experience, of course)
but he had much to say on the birth scene (his favorite), the highly
anticipated wedding, as well as additional scenes from Edward's point of
view! Warning: This interview contains spoilers.
honeymoon, the birth and Bella's transformation scenes. What was your
favorite to film and why?
There was something that happened on those nights, but specifically the
first night – there was something electric about it, so intense. Kristen
[Stewart] was so powerful. Obviously, it's a very feverish scene
with everybody kind of getting into that mode. It happens on a movie
set sometimes. Everyone gets very hushed, and after and between the
takes everyone's walking around, whispering and not talking – it was one
of those. Kristen didn't get up. She was on that gurney and
spent hours and hours there. That scene is the one I will remember more

Few directors can say they've made films back to back for a beloved franchise. It may be cost effective for most Hollywood studios, but it's a rarity. This century we've had Peter Jackson's three "Lord of the Rings" films, the Wachowskis' "Matrix Reloaded" and "Matrix Revolutions" and, most recently, Gore Verbinski's second and third "Pirates of the Caribbean" blockbusters. Jackson is currently at it again with two "Hobbit" features, but the latest filmmaker to join that exclusive club is none other than Academy Award winner Bill Condon. The man behind acclaimed films such as "Kinsey," "Dreamgirls" and "Gods and Monsters" has jumped into the world of Stephenie Meyer's "Twilight" with "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, Pt. 1" and "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, Pt. 2." The first of the films hits theaters next month and, not surprisingly, pre-release polling shows the interest in the lives of Bella and Edward Cullen hasn't waned since "Eclipse" was released 16 months ago.
I first met Bill just a few weeks after he returned from Sundance and the premiere of "Gods and Monsters" (that was way back in 1998 for those of you playing at home). A lot has happened since then, but through a ton of success on the big screen and co-producing the best Oscar telecast over the last decade (no bias, it's the truth), nothing may have prepared him for jumping on the "Twilight" train. With "Breaking Dawn, Pt. 1" completed and only a few weeks away from opening, Bill was kind enough to jump on the phone this morning and chat about the ride so far.
Congratulations on finishing 'Breaking Dawn, pt. 1' Do you consider this the halfway mark?
Oh, easily, more than that because we shot both movies back to back. I've got a pretty good cut of the second movie so we're in the good 3/4 plus mark. I started this with just outlines, so yeah, almost there.
You see yourself in the homestretch?

You filmed the last two movies a the same time like Harry Potter did, and they’re also being split into two, what did you think about filming the movie and closing such an important chapter in your life?
I don’t know because I’ve never stopped making other films besides Twilight. I want to keep the mentality of being busy all the time. It’s not the only thing I’ve done this whole time, and now it’s over. These movies have been mostly just work for me. Having a different director in each film has helped, because I’ve had to adapt to a different way of working.
Has it been easier to play Edward as time passed by?
In a way it’s been harder because of the nature of the character, who is a vampire. That limits what you can do. You can’t sleep, you can’t eat, everyday is long. You live 100 years and you can’t relate to people, you can’t have an impulse or desire. The danger is to keep repeating yourself after awhile after playing the same character for 5 movies. You have to come up with new things to add. The great thing is that Bill Condon, everytime I was doing a scene and he felt like I was doing the same thing again, he would suggest me to change it and try something else. It wasn’t scary even if we had to do something that was not in the book.
Everybody is talking about the sex scenes...
The book is a great example on how to keep something censored, and at the same time erotic. It plays with people’s imagination. The sex scene is completely on the fans’ minds.But in a way it’s hard because when you do the scene, you need to show things, and not fade to black, or people would go nuts. It’s weird filming something people have been expecting for such a long time, knowing the expectations. I hope we do justice to it.
Do you have a favorite scene in this movie?
The birth scene is so different from the entire saga. It’s so harcore and gory, at least when we were filming it. There’s not way to tame it in the book. That was brave.
With this fame you have and your relationship with Twilight, do you think it will be harder to get the type of work that you really like the most?
Of course. Before Twilight I did castings for so many things, and I was always left on the top 3. They gave the role to someone who was already more famous than me, and I kept thinking how unfair it was, so I thought the only way was to become more famous. But when you’re super famous, you get offered tons of bad stuff, in movies where they’re not even concerned with the cast. And if you haven’t done much work, directors look at you like an unknown and there’s not stigma attached to your name. It’s harder to get some roles sometimes. It’s weird.
What was it like playing a dad? Was it hard?
Not at first. You’re holding a baby, which is not easy to do, but nobody knows how to be a father at first. You can’t prepare for it. It was weird whn Mackenzie Foy had to play my daughter because you start to think: “My daughter is now 11. It’s been two months that she’s been born and now she can talk.” It was complicated to play. But it’s a fantasy movie, so you have to believe it.
