Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner provided some revealing insights into the filming of “Breaking Dawn, Part 1,” at Comic Con.
Ashley Greene, Nikki Reed, Elizabeth Reaser, Booboo Stewart and Julia Jones were also on hand at the convention.
One of the highlights of “Breaking Dawn” events was the extensive news conference involving the Twilight trio.
Kristen, for example, explained the lengths the movie company went to keep Bella’s wedding dress a secret.
“The wedding was secret-service style. It was insane. The crew was completely inconvenienced and grumbling around set,” she said at the “Breaking Dawn” press conference.
“You don’t understand what this means to us,” she said she told the security team. “If this dress gets on the Internet, I’ll die.”
The birth of Bella’s half-human, half-vampire baby was another key movie scene that produced an unexpected reaction.
“We had an animatronic baby, the scene where [Bella] had to be introduced to the baby for the first time,” Pattinson explained during Thursday’s press conference.
“[The puppeteer] is sweating right below my eyeline, trying to [reach] up to get the [animatronic baby's] hand up to touch your face,” Stewart said.
“And then it sticks to your hair and pulls a little bit and you’re like, ‘Ew, get that thing off me! Get me a real baby, this is ridiculous!’ ” she said. “And it had hair!”
“If you’ve ever seen a baby with a wig on …,” Pattinson offered. “[It] looked like a little troll on a stick.”
