E!’s Five Things You Need to Know About Eclipse Junket
Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner have been doing major press for Eclipse since Saturday, and sorry Twi-haters, they aren’t going to be done anytime soon (the film comes out June 30).
With a hundred new interviews and blog posts a day about our favorite stars, we’ve decided to narrow down some stuff we’ve learned so far.
Here are five of our favorite tidbits from the stars over the weekend:
Rob and Kristen want to get married and have babies: Sorry, they may not have said they want to tie the knot and have mini Robsten’s together, but the idea of a traditional family is something Stewart wants eventually.
“Yeah, sure,” Stewart said when asked if she believes in marriage, unlike Bella. “Whatever you want to do. I’m not ready to get married, but I have a pretty great family and I’d like that, too, someday.”
Pattinson then went on Today this morning and said that he doesn’t like the idea of settling down now (he just wants to be able to go out somewhere on a date), but he may have children on the brain. While at the Twilight convention Saturday night, R.P. said he wants “his kid” to play him in a movie about his life.
Taylor Lautner knows his abs are exploited: Tay doesn’t love always taking his shirt off. He told us at the Eclipse press conferences that it’s “awkward” being the only one half-naked on the set, posing and flexing his muscles in almost every scene. But that doesn’t mean he’s going to demand to be covered up in other movies he does.
“If I love the character, I love the story, and the character requires me to be shirtless, or if it requires me to lose thirty pounds, I’m ready to do it,” Taylor said.
Robert Pattinson just saw Twilight last week: It’s not unusual for actors to get after-the-fact awkwardness and opt out on watching their finished product (Johnny Depp never watches his movies). Pattinson isn’t that extreme, but we were surprised when he announced he saw Twilight for the first time on TV a few days ago…and he still didn’t totally get it!
“Even when I was watching Twilight the other day, now that I’ve seen it, you do need to read the book to get it. I was like ‘What?!’ and I’m in it!
At least he read the books though! Well, not all of them yet. Picking up a copy of Breaking Dawn is on Pattinson’s to-do list.
Kristen Stewart still avoids Rob questions, but might let up after Breaking Dawn: Reporter: “There’s so much speculation about you and Rob. You said last year that it was all ridiculous and all press created.”
Stewart: “Someone’s tape just ran out. I’m just saying.”
But there may be light at the end of the are-they-or-aren’t-they tunnel. Said reporter wouldn’t let up and asked: “Do you think all this speculation will continue until the series ends and then people will finally know one way or the other?”
Kristen’s response: “Probably. I think probably, yeah.”
Taylor’s not into love triangles; Rob is a little Edward: The focus of Eclipse is the love triangle between Edward, Bella and Jacob, but the stars claim three-ways aren’t their forte.
Lautner said he’s never been on the losing end of a love triangle or any triangle for that matter, saying, “I would not want to be in that situation.” Pattinson added later on that he definitely wouldn’t want to be in Jacob’s situation. “Then you’re just the guy that broke up the couple.”
But R.Pattz said he can’t entirely relate to Edward either. “Yeah probably,” Pattinson responded when asked if he’s ever fought for a girl like Edward does for Bella. “Yeah. But I don’t know if it was about love. [Laugh.] it was more pride.”
