Summary - Carefree, single and slightly klutzy Bella Swan, is so content with life, that she’s stuck in a rut. So what happens when someone spices things up for her? Will he actually be able to pull her out of it? And more importantly, will she let him? Especially when all she wants to do, is hate him.
Before the first Twilight movie in 2008, I was a much more open person. Now I spend a lot of time looking at the floor in public in an attempt not to get noticed. It can get a little boring. But whatever sacrifices I've had to make as a rising star, my job makes up for it a hundredfold.
I won the Orange Rising Star Award at the Baftas last week. As I stood on stage at the Royal Opera House, I felt overwhelmed – in front of all these industry people, whom I don't just admire, but who are the foundation of what I want to do. It's hard to explain how it feels being in the same room as Kate Winslet. Perhaps it's similar to how a Twilight fan feels on seeing me in person. ( Collapse )
Some people say I'm anti-Hollywood, but I'm really not at all. I just think it's pretty weird to show up at things that you have no reason to go to. To go out just for the sake of it is plain ridiculous.
I've been asked a million times in interviews about being a role model. I don't really like to consider it. I'm aware that people look up to me, but I am myself for myself and not for anybody else. I choose my work impulsively.
I've been walking around London in a hoody these last few days looking at all the old buildings. It's all fine until a diehard fan notices your sneakers. But I can always see a crowd and turn around and walk the other way.
In terms of history, we have nothing in LA. Here you can feel Jack the Ripper lurking around every corner. It's nicer here because there's a sense that I'm a real person. Perhaps I'm more of a novelty. In LA I tend to get people who gawk at me like I'm an animal, take pictures and scream things at me. There's no way of being open in public anymore. There's a five-minute exchange every 30 seconds that prevents me from even buying a loaf of bread at the grocery store.
PS. She knows about the sneakers O_O
If you're anything like the gleefully obsessed "New Moon" fans we chatted with in the days leading up to the film's release, you've already seen Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner's on-screen love triangle play out multiple times. But that doesn't mean you're not going to watch it again and again when the DVD hits stores.
In honor of the disc's release on March 20, director Chris Weitz sat down with MTV News to reveal five things you probably didn't know about "New Moon." Here's what we learned.( Collapse )
Going for the Gold: In "Twilight," RPattz and the rest of his vegetarian vampire cohorts have gold-colored eyes as a result of abstaining from consuming human blood. For "New Moon," the vamps' eyes were clearly more golden. Why'd Weitz have his actors switch to brighter contact lenses?
"It's a more noticeable gold," Weitz said. "I thought that in the first film they hadn't popped quite enough and I wanted to have that sense of otherworldliness carry through more."
The Silent Vampire: Actress Rachelle Lefevre was notoriously replaced in her role as the vampire Victoria following "New Moon," with Bryce Dallas Howard taking over the part for "Eclipse." In "New Moon," Lefevre is seen but does not speak. Is there a connection between her lack of lines and what happened with the casting decision?
"It wasn't so much that," Weitz said. "There was a dialogue scene with her, and eventually that will show up whenever they release deleted scenes. It was one of those scenes that, when you look back at it, it's kind of a surplus to the whole storytelling requirement of the movie. So there was no ill intent there. I wrote Rachelle and explained why that scene didn't end up in the film, and in terms of filmmaking I can't regret it, although I do regret it very much if it hurt Rachelle's feelings."
Why So Torn Up, Edward?: At one point in the film, Pattinson's Edward Cullen appears in a ripped T-shirt, but we never learn why. So ... what the heck happened?
"What it's supposed to be is that he's essentially been wearing the same clothes for several months, and that eventually they've just worn out because, as you I'm sure know, his body is like stone. So he must've rubbed up against something and it ripped," Weitz said.
Our Lord?: In its Italian-set portions, "New Moon" features a significant amount of religious iconography, and Edward certainly suffers a great deal. Is he supposed to be a Christ figure?
"I think that he is in a sense he's doomed to suffer eternally," Weitz said. "He actually thinks of himself as a damned figure, but he's wrong about that. So in some senses, yeah, he is a martyr figure."
Black Eyes: In Stephenie Meyer's book, Edward's eyes go black in Italy. Why don't his eyes turn in the film?
"It's because I screwed up!" Weitz admitted.
Really? He just forgot?
"Well, yeah, I kinda did," he said. "Well, there are two reasons. One is that I messed up. The other reason is that I actually thought that onscreen it would be quite bizarre to see his eyes go completely black, and that it would be more satisfying and less jarring to have that moment of reunion be a reunion with revivified Edward. But probably, the long and the short of it, there are many details that I did not drop the ball on, and there are some that I did."( Collapse )
