From Robert Pattinson, Entertainment Weekly Magazine, November 2008
”In the beginning I thought to myself, ‘Because she’s so serious, I’ve got to be really serious,”’ he says. ”I didn’t speak for about two months so I would seem really intense. I would only ever talk about the movie.”
Who doesn’t LOVE early adorkable Rob talking about Kristen? I can’t imagine anyone wouldn’t… So, that’s why I went deep cut for this little gem. Rob’s vulnerability here is fantastic because he’s showing how serious he actually was about this franchise and (more telling, I think), how serious he was about impressing Kristen. Oh Rob… Mission accomplished…
Dedicated Twilight fans might recognize the song that plays during the long-awaited wedding between Edward (Robert Pattinson) and Bella (Kristen Stewart) when they see Breaking Dawn this weekend (if they haven’t seen it already; the film made over $30 million in midnight screenings Thursday night). It’s a special ‘wedding version’ of the Iron & Wine song, ‘Flightless Bird, American Mouth’ that played during the prom scene in the first Twilight movie way back when in 2008.
“Before we even started shooting the first Twilight with [director] Catherine Hardwicke, I was rehearsing with Rob and we were sort of dancing around this room, trying to do this scene,” Stewart tells EW. “I put on Iron & Wine’s ‘Flightless Bird, American Mouth’ and I just became instantly emotional. Rob couldn’t handle it — it got weird! But I was like, ‘oooh, this is perfect.’”
Stewart says that they ended up playing the song for her on-set when they filmed the actual scene, and the rest is Twilight history. Listen for parts of the song to play during the long-awaited love scene too: “I think our composer played with it and you hear the melody throughout the film,” says Stewart.
Everyone is so excited to get their hands on this magazine and of course for the first movie to come out in November! So many exciting things to come!! This video just makes us even more excited! Thanks to @MaryGtwinews!
The real competition may not be between the two rival Snow White films, but between Charlize Theron’s Evil Queen and her fairest-of-them-all nemesis Kristen Stewart.
That quote is from Theron to Stewart at the start of the Comic-Con panel for Snow White and the Huntsman, which begins filming next week and will hit theaters June 1.
The first thing that jumps to mind is that this isn’t the typical Snow White in a dress — this is more Joan of Arc territory.
“This girl has the amazing ability to channel fear, things that people are typically afraid to do, into this really focused, really charged, driving energy,” Stewart told panel moderator (and EW senior writer) Dave Karger.
“She truly does not let her heart cloud her mind,” the Twilight actress added, breaking into a smile: “Also I get to have a sword and stuff, and really cool weapons.”
“It’s important to find out where she came from and how she got to where she is,” Theron said of her Evil Queen, who sports a stiff collar made of feathers and looks ready to plunge that curved dagger into something. “She’s dark. She’s a serial killer. I’m pretty much preparing to play a serial killer, and that’s interesting, trying to ground it and make it clear.”
Sam Claflin, previously seen as the noble missionary in Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, turns up here as the Prince, though the actor hinted he is not the “some day my prince will come” type. “The prince is not as necessarily charming as one would hope,” he said.
Finally, Thor star Chris Hemsworth as the other title character — a mercenary who decides to spare Snow White rather than follow the queen’s orders to cut her heart out, leading to a desperate escape and — eventually — a counter-attack on the wicked ruler of the kingdom.
