One of the most anticipated scenes in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 1? The long awaited wedding between Edward (Robert Pattinson) and Bella (Kristen Stewart). And considering how many people went to see the movie in theaters this weekend, plenty of people have now gotten to see the action for themselves. (But for formality’s sake, consider this your official SPOILER ALERT.)
We’ve already told you about why the Iron& Wine song that plays during the ceremony held special significance for some of the cast, but Stewart and Pattinson also tell EW about some of the things audiences didn’t get to see. For example, the moment when Pattinson channeled another actor while filming the speech he gives at the wedding to his new bride. “No one was there really,” he says. “Just a bunch of extras. And for one of the takes, I went into a total Christopher Walken impression. I don’t know why. [Director] Bill [Condon] said, ‘What just happened? Why are you suddenly playing this like Christopher Walken?’ And I just couldn’t get out of it. It’s one of the weirdest things that’s ever happened to me.” He laughs. “I wish it happened more often.”
Another scene, featuring the Denali cousins (important because of their role in Breaking Dawn — Part 2, out November 2012) coming over to congratulate Bella and Edward, apparently didn’t make the final cut. “A little tiny piece of the scene made it into the movie,” explains Stewart. “It was the last thing we shot, at 4 a.m. We did my close-up last, and I was laughing — literally laughing! — just looking at these ladies. All of a sudden it seemed so ridiculous to me, like, who are all these people at my wedding?”
“That scene just went on and on. It felt like forever. I loved it,” laughs Pattinson. “I always like the scenes where Kristen loses it.” A bonus feature for the DVD, perhaps?
LA Times: Robert Pattinson cheers ‘Twilight’ director Bill Condon
Reviews for “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 1″ might have been, well, mixed, to put it kindly — as of Sunday evening, the movie had a 29% fresh rating on the website Rotten Tomatoes. But the film’s director, Bill Condon, has at least one very prominent supporter: the movie’s star Robert Pattinson.
The 25-year-old English actor, who plays Edward Cullen in the series, had nothing but kind words for Condon, the fourth director to sign on for a “Twilight” film and the man who will conclude the saga next year when “Breaking Dawn — Part 2″ is released. He said he appreciated what the filmmaker was up against: a tonally challenging narrative, a special-effects-intensive production and pressure to meet outsize fan expectations for the first half of the finale of the franchise adapted from author Stephenie Meyer’s bestselling vampire romance novels.
“It was a massive undertaking, much bigger budgets and huge expectations, since it was the last one in the series,“Pattinson said of the production. “There was much more pressure than the last one.”
Pattinson said he felt that Condon had a point of view with the film — Condon told The Times that he wanted to marry melodrama and horror in telling the story of Edward’s marriage to Bella (Kristen Stewart) and the fallout from the unplanned pregnancy that happens soon after. The actor also enjoyed Condon’s humor, which showed up both on-screen and off.
“It’s very easy to become cynical about stuff, especially where you are doing five movies in the series,” Pattinson said. “It’s a very sentimental story in a lot of ways, and I’m an incredibly cynical person. Bill would always have a great explanation for why it’s not ridiculous and it’s not corny. It was great to have someone on set who could convince me of those things.”
Pattinson said that from the beginning, the shoot was a challenge. The six-month filming schedule for both parts of “Breaking Dawn” kicked off in Brazil, where Pattinson said “everything went wrong.”
“Just the fact that he didn’t get overwhelmed within two seconds was a big deal,” Pattinson said of Condon. “We were in Rio [de Janeiro] for one day. Two cameras broke down, a crane broke down and everything was crazy. There was no crowd control, and he stayed perfectly calm. Bill was really thrown in the deep end, and we came up with really nice stuff. It was really pretty and nice.”

Filming a Real-Life Couple (Pattinson and Stewart)
Condon: It was entirely a relief. I can’t imagine doing those scenes with two people who don’t like each other. But did I have to adjust the way they make love to each other? No, it was really good.
Rosenberg: I created the sex scene and then Bill let the actors go, and I don’t think Rob and Kris needed any help with how to perform. [Laughs.]
