What was it like to shoot Bella's gruesome birth scene? You have to help cut the baby out of her (the child that's crushing her from the inside), and then watch Bella die as she gives birth.
I read the script before I read the book that describes the birth scene. I was astonished at how this is portrayed. It was terrifying going into it on the set. I just couldn't believe we were going to have Bella give birth to a half vampire, half human child. It was also one of the most incredible scenes in the movie. I guess there could be a great R-rated or even NC 17-rated version of a few scenes in this movie, including the birth scene and the honeymoon!
What was it like to film the wedding scene? Are you a big let's plan a wedding kind of guy?
A wedding that big does seem like a bit of a hassle. I was just doing interviews with Kristen and she got really annoyed with me because I said the groom's role in a wedding is basically to be there as a prop!
Wait, now we're mad at you!
Seriously, it's a clear indication of whose day it is when you, as the guy, are standing at the end of an aisle and the whole congregation turns and looks at her. You're also in the same suit as every other guy. I think any guy who tries to get involved in the organizing or planning of a wedding, or even has an opinion about any of it is kind of ridiculous. It's all about what your future wife wants to do.
So, no big wedding for you... someday?
I don't really mind a fancy wedding. I just don't want to wear a silly outfit. That's what guys think about… we don't want to look dumb.
Quick guy question: In these Twi-films, Edward doesn't seem to mind the fact that this hot guy, played by Taylor Lautner, is always looking out for your woman, Bella. Would this fly with you in real life? You know, the best guy friend who is always around your girlfriend?
No way! I'd be like, "It's time for you to hit the road." I don't think I'd be happy about the situation. I'd ask, "Why are you always hanging around? I don't even want to know why. Get out of here!" Taylor Lautner: I'll Never Get Tired Of The Screaming Girls
Are you ever going to release any new music?
I can handle doing movies. You can always blame it on someone else. I can handle the criticism because there are hundreds of people who work on a movie. But when you put out an album, there are people who will judge just you. The day any of my music would come out, I'd probably be on the Internet wanting to shoot myself if people hated it. I could put the music out under an alias, but that's also very embarrassing if you get caught.
Describe the last time you played Edward in the upcoming The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2.
It was pretty incredible. It was freezing cold out in the woods for two nights of shooting. We did one final scene out there and that was the end of the Twilight films. We had wrapped the last movie. But, it doesn't really feel like the end yet. The press tours are huge. When it's finally over and I talk about Edward for the last time… well, I'll be pretty sad. I'll miss the guy.
