Let the long-lead press previews on ‘Breaking Dawn’ begin! And in that breath, never say Kristen Stewart isn’t devoted to her role as Bella Swan.
With two lush, juicily airbrushed covers of Entertainment Weekly on newsstands, Stewart delivers some commentary on the final two parts of in ‘The Twilight Saga,’ which -- SPOILER ALERT! -- means those who don’t want to know more details should stop reading right now.
In regards to the hotly anticipated envisioning of Bella’s wedding to Robert Pattinson‘s Edward Cullen, Stewart was overwhelmed by how far she and her costars have come.
“There was a certain point when I walked on set, and I saw everyone from the entire cast sitting there in the pews, about to do their bit,’ she said of the wedding scene. ‘And it was just so perfect for me in that moment. It was so emotional in such a real way.’
Speaking of real -- like, really real -- the staple question about the film is its depiction of the major marriage consummation scene and graphic birth of Bella and Edward’s vampire daughter, Renesmee.
‘Everybody thinks it’s all about the sex,’ Stewart said, bemoaning how these events will be treated on film.
‘The birth is really effective, and I’ve heard it really hits you in the face. But what it could have been? It could have been shocking and grotesque, because that’s how it was written in the book.”
‘I would have loved to have been puking up blood,’ she added.
