Elizabeth Reaser might play Edward’s adopted vampire mom, Esme Cullen, in “Twilight,” but that doesn’t mean she can’t find the “Eclipse” tent scene to be one really sexy moment. If Twi-Hards thought it was hot in the book, Reaser said, then they really need to see the flick, out June 30.
“The tent scene, I remember that being one of the hottest scenes in the books, so I’m excited to see that,” Reaser said when she stopped by the MTV News offices Tuesday (May 18). “I’m Team Edward, so I can’t relate to [Bella] being torn [between Edward and Jacob], but I mean, come on, vampires are cool! Wolves are super hairy and they smell disgusting, like dogs.”
Reaser said the tent scene ups the sexual ante in the “Twilight Saga.” “The tent scene is sort of a three-way — I mean, it’s a chaste three-way, but it is, nonetheless, a three-way,” she said. “So I do think that ups the sexiness factor in this movie, but I don’t know. The first movie, I thought, was intensely sexy, because they couldn’t touch, and to watch them fall in love was so sexy. And I love that, in the books, they all have great chemistry. So it’s fun to watch.”
Regardless of how chaste the tent scene is, Reaser understands that Twilighters are anticipating it. “I have no realistic idea of what excites people. I’m always surprised,” she said of what fans are looking forward to. “If I were a fan? I’m starting to sound like a sicko, but I would say the tent scene. I mentioned it like five times now. It’s getting weird. That’s my son! I’m happy we’re not really related, so it’s not that weird.
“I’m excited to see the action, like running through the forest,” she added. “I was running on the back of the truck at 30 miles per hour, so I’m excited to see that.”
Robert Pattinson & Kristen Stewart placed numbers 6 & 7 on MTV’s Man & Women Of The Year List! (They’re both #1 in all their Twi-Fan’s hearts though).
6. Robert Pattinson: In 2009, all eyes were on RPattz. Despite only releasing one movie, there were few people whose face sold more magazines, whose every word made more of a ripple and whose public appearances caused such a stir.
Under such pressure, a lot of 23-year-old actors would end up getting into trouble, indulging to the point of excess and disappointing their fans.
But somehow, the uniquely suited-for-stardom Robert Pattinson took it all with a good-natured grin and self-deprecating charm. In “Twilight” and beyond, his future seems so bright that he’ll likely be sparkling for quite some time.
2009 Highlights: We all know Rob had a busy 2009, and everybody had their own thoughts on what he should do after “Twilight.” Few saw his first move coming, however, as he dropped out of the indie flick “Parts Per Billion,” leaving producer/star Rosario Dawson sad but promising the show would go on. In February, he showed up at the Oscars and stole attention away from stars as big as Brad and Angelina. Despite expressing fears that he might become “Twilighted out” while shooting “New Moon” and “Eclipse” back-to-back, he nevertheless got back to work as Edward Cullen.
7. Kristen Stewart At 19 years old, she already has an amazing 23 films under her belt. Yet, Kristen Stewart entered 2009 with a lot of questions: Was “Twilight” a fluke? How would the notoriously press-shy starlet handle A-list fame? And would “New Moon” “kill” her, as she promised?
2009 Highlights: It all began in the snowy mountains of Park City, Utah, where a bundled-up KStew arrived at the Sundance Film Festival to discover that paparazzi were everywhere — quite a difference from early 2008, when she walked down the streets unbothered. The “Twilight” star was there to unveil “Adventureland,” a sweet coming-of-age drama that was well-received by critics and became a minor hit nationwide in April. Of course, 2010 will start out similarly for Kristen, as she’ll be at Sundance next month with two films.
As the “New Moon” hype continued to build, KStew kept her indie cred intact. In March, she played a teenager suffering from a fatal nerve disease in “The Cake Eaters,” a tiny character drama directed by Mary Stuart Masterson. KStew researched her role by spending time with real-life sufferers of Friedreich’s ataxia and admitted that although she had a busy year ahead, she was glad the “Twilight” sequels were all filming so closely together.
MTV is on a mission to get the fans most burning questions answered. Here, they answer questions about Stephenie Meyer:
Kellan Lutz tries to sneak in some Cullen love; plus Jamie Campbell Bower and Edi Gathegi.
When you think about “Twilight” and the soon-to-release “New Moon,” there are plenty of words that come to mind — but they probably don’t include “big hugs” and “sexual white chocolate.” Well, that’s about to change.
As we continue this week’s “New Moon” Stars Answer Fans’ Burning Questions, a Cullen, a Volturi leader and a nomad take the spotlight, answering queries straight from the lips of Twilighters. Read on for some revealing answers, as well as a good laugh.
Jamie Campbell Bower Q: Have you been able to meet Stephenie Meyer yet?
Campbell Bower: Yes, she’s fantastic. She’s really lovely. I got to meet with her a couple of days before we started filming and spoke to her about the characters and stuff.
MTV: What kind of notes did she have for you?
Campbell Bower: [We spoke about] this idea that [the Volturi] are fairly cultured and very civilized. They’ve been around for 2,000 years, and [Caius] has got this deep-rooted anger in him. That was about it. I mean, we literally just sat down. She didn’t give me any specific notes and such.
Kellan Lutz Q: You and Nikki [Reed] are my favorite characters/couple. I loved how you played them in “Twilight.” Will we see a bit more of their relationship in “New Moon”?
Lutz: “New Moon” doesn’t really focus on the Cullen family enough. [Our screen time] is just like the kitchen scene in “Twilight,” with the family when Bella comes in with Edward. We try to gravitate towards our significant others as much as we can in the scenes that are allowed. With “New Moon,” there aren’t really too many scenes that we can show Emmett and Rosalie’s relationship.
MTV: So is it all about sneaking in glances to each other and maybe holding hands at a certain point, that kind of stuff?
Lutz: Yeah, I guess we sneak as much as we can in there. It’s really how [director] Chris [Weitz] lines us up and what’s better for the lighting, what’s better for the camera. I’m much larger than Nikki, so I don’t want to block her light. If they put us together, great — but then again, Rosalie’s character is more of the standoffish one with Bella, versus Emmett. It’s fine either way, so he’s really happy when he gives the radio to Bella for her birthday and the big hugs and stuff.
Edi Gathegi Q: What is the last thing that you Googled?
Gathegi: What was the last thing that I Googled? [Laughs.] Kellan Lutz.
MTV:: And what came up when you Googled Kellan Lutz?
Gathegi: Sexual white chocolate. [Laughs.] Onesies and M&M’s, that’s what came up. Bear Claws, Emmett Cullen — I could keep going. What did I Google, in all seriousness? Indian restaurants, that’s what I Googled, because Rachelle [Lefevre] and I [were] planning to go to an Indian restaurant in Vancouver, so she asked me what kind of Indian restaurants I knew. I started Googling some that I wanted to potentially hit up [while we were shooting "New Moon"] for comparison.
MTV was able to catch up with Eclipse hottie Jackson Rathbone and he dished on RPattz, Eclipse, Jasper Hale and more!
MTV:Out of the new characters joining the franchise for “New Moon,” which is your favorite?
Jackson Rathbone:My favorite character in “New Moon” that wasn’t in “Twilight”? I guess my favorite character in “New Moon” is a collective — the Volturi. It’s one of those things that’s really nice to see, these decadent older vampires that run this vampire society, if you will. I think they’re an amazing group of actors that we were able to get for the film, and they are very scary and intimidating. They’re all perfect — I mean, Dakota Fanning is a terrifying Jane; absolutely terrifying.
MTV:You guys have all spent so much time together over the last few years. When the cameras stop rolling on set, what do you guys talk about?
Rathbone:Between takes? We just kinda talk about regular things, you know. We’re all normal people — we’re not vampires in real life. Between takes, we’re talking about music we like or what we plan to do once the filming is done. I always bring my guitar with me and my harmonica, and Nikki Reed, Rob and Kristen and a lot of the cast are very musically inclined. So, a lot of times we’ll just be jamming between takes, to blow off some of the emotional intensity and have a little fun.

*Screams Louder*… this is almost too much Twilight: New Moon goodness to take in! Cannot wait!!!!!
New Moon’s Taylor Lautner talks about the wolfpack with MTV!
Lucky for us, Taylor Lautner also revealed a scene in the movie that is not in the book. MTV reports:
“And speaking of Jacob’s friends, Lautner also told us that one of his favorite scenes in the “New Moon” movie is something that didn’t occur in Stephenie Meyer’s novel. It’s a moment revolving around the newly glimpsed character of Quil Ateara and his smoothness with the ladies — or lack thereof.
“I loved shooting the scenes with Embry and Quil,” he revealed. “Tyson [Houseman] plays Quil, and he’s just kind of a funny character.
“Me and Bella — I’m sorry, Bella and I — are working on the bikes, and Embry and Quil come in,” Lautner explained of the scene. “Quil’s checking out Bella [and trying to be smooth] and is like, ‘Hey, I’m Quil. Quil Ateara.’ It’s a really funny scene, and the two were really great in it.”
MTV has a great article with a list of reasons why females are so in love with the vampires of ‘Twilight’ & ‘True Blood.
Here’s an excerpt:
“Newsweek spoke with psychologists, authors and gals like you and me to get to the bottom of our desire for the undead and, not surprisingly, the answers were as varied as the fanged-ones we love.
Edward Cullen (above, far left) is practically the perfect boyfriend. He’s a kind-hearted musician. A granite-bodied heartthrob. A chivalrous protector. And a deadly killer capable of stopping your heart in .53 seconds flat. Yet, tweens, grandmothers and every woman in between inexplicably crave this dichotomous character.”
1. They’ve got skills
“It’s fang, penetration, ecstasy,” says Laurell K. Hamilton, bestselling author of the “Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter” series. “Our readers know that vampire sex is somehow going to be the very best sex a woman has ever had.” I guess we’ll have to take her word on that one. Adds “Southern Vampire Mysteries” author Charlaine Harris (whose books were the inspiration for “True Blood”), it’s so enticing because “they’ve generally had centuries to practice.”
