One big difference between the ‘Breaking Dawn’ premiere campers, and the folks farther northeast downtown at Occupy L.A.? The Twi-hards have a clear set of demands: ‘Twilight,’ ‘Twilight’ and more ‘Twilight’ -- and if you would cap that with a little Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner on the red carpet before ‘Breaking Dawn -- Part 1' premieres at the Nokia Theatre, everyone would go home happy.
The ‘Breaking Dawn’ fans, who’ve been camped in tents gathered under a larger tent at L.A. Live since Wednesday, got some extra entertainment Sunday morning: Supporting cast members, including Cullen family patriarch Peter Facinelli, vampire Jackson Rathbone, werewolf BooBoo Stewart and Denali vixens Casey LaBow and MyAnna Buring showed up for a breakfast-time autograph session and photo fest ahead of Monday’s big event.
The ‘big three’ stars will hit the scene Monday evening.
Twilight saga author Stephenie Meyer also showed ahead of the red carpet for the first time, handing out 600 pre-autographed copies of ‘Breaking Dawn’ and delighting fans, some of whom thanked her for friendships that had resulted because of her books.
‘They’re really kind to each other, which I love, and all very excited,’ Meyer said in a video interview Sunday, ‘and looking pretty good for having slept on the street.’
The Ministry of Gossip will have the premiere’s official live-streaming video from the red carpet starting at 5 p.m. PST -- so either bookmark this post or come back to the Ministry later to see KStew, RPattz, Taylor and more from the red carpet in Los Angeles.
There’s a premiere in London’s Stratford district Wednesday, and the movie hits U.S. theaters Friday.
[For the record, 6:11 p.m.: As commenters Andrea Lavigne and Candice Davis point out below, this post originally mixed up details on roles played by Jackson Rathbone, Casey LaBow and MyAnna Buring. Should be right now! No excuses, just blushing bright red right -- now back to the live feed and Twitter!/cdz.]
