Nikki Reed was on Craig Ferguson last night, she discussed Twitter, her friend DJ Qualls, her tattoos and living in Hawaii before filming Twilight.
We rarely see Nikki on these late night shows, and she did a good job, don’t you think?
How cute is this? We already knew Nikki and Jackson were close, but now we know Nikki is actually godmother to Monroe VI, Jackson’s baby boy.
It’s great that cast made such strong friendships. Here’s a picture that Elizabeth Reaser tweeted recently.
E! caught up with Nikki Reed and Peter Facinelli at the InStyle Summer Soiree at the London West Hollywood hotel on Wednesday where they shared their sadness over the Twilight saga coming to an end. On not seeing each other again for Twilight related events, Nikki shared:
“It’s not the last time we’ll see each other, but it’s the last time we’ll see each other in that way and it’s weird to say that it’ll never happen again. It is sad. I’m really sad.”
Meanwhile, Peter joked:
“I’ve been crying every day. We had a big sad sob fest yesterday.”
“He’s just being a man and pretending he doesn’t want to talk about it. We had a big group dinner last night and we were talking about that.”
On the recent scandal, Nikki preferred to not comment:
“I can’t even approach that topic. There’s been so much good.”
Will you cry on the final premiere?
MTV caught up with the cast at Comic-Con and shared a video of them talking about meeting each other for the first time, and what their first impressions were.
After interviewing the lovely Mackenzie Foy, I had the chance to talk to one half of the Cullen family next along with the other fan sites. On this portion we were talking to Peter Facinelli, Elizabeth Reaser and Nikki Reed. Nikki and Elizabeth walked in first, followed by Peter, who as he looked at the fan site ladies sitting down for the interview he said, “It’s the Church of Twilight! I am your Minister”.
After a few more jokes we knew it would be a fun interview. Please enjoy.
Q: How difficult was it for you, as your characters, to work with Kristen as a vampire, as opposed to working with her as a human being?
Elizabeth Reaser: I mean, I think it was a lot of fun. There’s a scene where she almost kills Taylor. And I believed in the moment that she was strong enough. She really was so committed, whether she was a vampire, vampire Bella, which is completely different, and she was scary, she was a real force.
Peter Facinelli: It’s like a whole different person. It was kinda cool. She’s grown to be so mature, and confident and strong. Really, it was like dealing with a different person altogether. Like, Bella is usually weak and frail. Not weak. But frail as far, you know, a vampire looking at her, and we always felt the need to protect her, and I didn’t feel the need to do that. I felt like this was a woman who could hold her own.
Elizabeth: She could kill us.
Peter: She was stronger than us.
Q: But then was it weird for you? Because one day she would be vampire Bella, and then the next day she’d be back to being human Bella. Because you were filming both films simultaneously? Was that odd?
Nikki Reed: Yeah, and not just human Bella; like human Bella falling…
Elizabeth: apart? (everyone laughs)
Q: And then the next day she was beautiful vampire Bella…
Nikki: That was bizarre.
Elizabeth: Yeah it was weird to see her disfigured like that because it looked so real. It came out great.
Nikki: The last one, Part 1 and 2, that was the only time when my character and Bella actually wanted to interact and have some friendliness and a smile here and there…
Q: Fighting for the same cause.
Nikki: Exactly. The dynamic was very different.
Q: Nikki, you made reference earlier in the panel that you’ve kind of grown up together on the set, and we asked Mackenzie this, and I thought it would be fun to ask you, especially with Peter and Elizabeth sitting here. What did you learn growing up (on set) from the other actors that you worked with? I feel like this is something where you benefit from each other, I’m sure.
Nikki: Um, I think it would be impossible to go through every single one (actor) and come with the most genuine answer because there’s so many people, and certainly from working with these guys sitting next to me, and say, Billy Burke, and Michael Sheen. You guys (gestures to Peter and Elizabeth) have a body of work that I really admire. I mean, I remember seeing (Elizabeth’s) Sweet Land and saying “I can’t believe she wasn’t nominated for an Oscar!” So I think getting to work with people like that, you really try to absorb something from it. I look up to these guys, and they also have a great work ethic as well. I think it’s really important when there’s a bunch of us working together to have one person who makes sure that nobody falls off the train, you know what I mean? And keep it together and actually keep each other in line too. It’s been a journey. I mean, it’s been four and a half years, and we’ve all grown a lot. It’s so sad.
Q: And to flip it, is there something that Elizabeth and Peter learned from the younger cast members?
Nikki: I taught her (Elizabeth) how to cook.
Elizabeth: That’s true! I never cooked before in my life, and now I actually make rice and some vegetables.
Nikki: She cooked meals for me.
(Elizabeth shakes her head)
Nikki: You did!
Elizabeth: I was not at the level that you were at, but just even that I would go to the store and buy vegetables and actually bring them home and cook them. None of that ever happened until I met Nikki Reed. But truthfully though, in terms of the work I feel like I was stealing from everyone. I mean, I think Nikki has a commitment when she’s in a scene, and she brings such an energy into the scene, it is unlike anyone else onscreen. And it’s something that is so specific to her. What she did with Rosalie and her creativity, and the way she thinks about the scene and her character, she puts a lot of work into it. And as far as… I’m thinking of the people sitting here, with Peter I’m always listening to the way he talks about these characters, and sort of like stealing his theories, because, again, he’s someone who I really admire, and being in a scene with him, you really can’t half-ass this, you really have to show up and you do the best job that you can, especially because, like Nikki said, we are a team. And you cannot let your team down.
Peter: I think that age doesn’t really matter to me, when you’re working with people that are talented you get inspired. Whether they were younger or older, you do look to the people that you work with and they inspire you in different ways. I totally was inspired by the people in this room, and with the other actors that I work with.
Q: So to take it one step further, have you learned anything from your character that surprised you?
Peter: I always say I put a little bit of myself in every character, but I also take a little bit from the character and I walk away with it after I play it. With Carlisle, I think he taught me a lot of patience.
Elizabeth: That is his superpower.
Peter: No. It’s compassion.
Compassion! There you go.
Peter: That’s (patience) his secondary superpower.
Peter is schooling us in Twilight today…
Peter: He has a lot of patience. He has a lot of wisdom, and he thinks things through and I’ve always admired that in him, and even with my own kids, because Carlisle to me is like the perfect father figure. I always looked at him with my kids, and I learned patience with him.
Q: To the fans, your hair from movie to movie to movie, everyone is always really excited to see the changes, and sometimes not so excited to see the changes.
Peter: Why did you look at me? (laughs)
You know the moments the fans get the promo head shots were like “Oh!” Is there a certain movie that made you think “Wow, I look hot!”?
Nikki: I had some real moments with Peter about this. I was like, “Just be honest”.
Peter: I think you looked good in Eclipse.
Nikki: You did?
Peter: I did.
Elizabeth: Yeah, I think that was my favorite wig. That was the best, when you got to dye. That looked great.
Nikki: I wanted to go with that one and someone else came in and said, “No.” I was a little disappointed, but you always put your faith into the other creative directors there and you believe that they are going to do what’s best. It is really bizarre… I don’t know about you guys (to Peter and Elizabeth) but my process as an actor is that I try not to obsess over what I’m going to look like, I mean I do(laughs) but it’s not the focal point, you know? That was such a priority I feel like for a lot of us in these movies, it was like “What do we look like?” It’s not always what we should look like or what we think we can look like.
Elizabeth: My approach was to always try to simply it. Less of everything – less hair, less make-up, less lashes, less artifice as much as possible. But it was tricky because I had a wig, then I had to dyed hair, then I had brown hair, then I had really dark hair, then I had some highlights…I still don’t know what my hair was supposed to be. I would love to hear what Stephenie Meyer thinks about that. But that’s the weird thing about movies, you know? Sometimes it just gets out of control. There’s so many people!
Nikki: So many people!
Elizabeth: And the next thing you know…you got a thing on your head.
Peter: It’s not your job as an actor… (makes weird hand gestures around his head). There’s a hair person – that is their job (everyone laughs). My job is to bring the character to life; their job is to watch out for your hair. So you’re in constant battles with that person, because you’re, like, “I wanna look good”. They’re trying to make you look a certain way, and I’m like… at a certain point you have to be like, “Ok, that’s their job and you have to let them do their job”. There were times when I looked in the mirror and I looked like a cross between a ‘Ken doll’ and Ronald McDonald.
Nikki: Is that because of what I said that time?
Peter: You might’ve put that in my mind.
Nikki: But you know what? I think it’s fair to say that we switched department heads for hair and make-up for every single film. Which is a really hard thing to do to actors because every time we came in we had a new person with a new vision.
Peter: A new person we had to trust.
Elizabeth: And they had a lot of challenges.
Peter:… and they wanted to always fix the one before, you know, or put a new stamp on what they were doing.
Q: Do you have a personal favorite?
Peter: I like the hair in Twilight because that was my hair and I dyed it. If I had to choose wigs, which was 2, 3, 4, 5…
Not 4 or 5 (everyone laughs)
Peter: There were moments in 4 and 5…
What moments? (everyone laughs)
Nikki: This is a sensitive subject for Peter and I because we’re the ones that sit down in front of people and had people go like, “God, you guys actually are really good looking!” That’s what people say the most about us.
Peter: In Eclipse it wasn’t so bad, I mean it was a little short but if I had to pick I guess I would go with Eclipse. I would go with Twilight.
We’ll have more exclusive content from Comic-Con this week! Don’t forget to drop by
I have so many good snaphots on my phone of last week’s Comic-Con that I feel like a little post is in order. I originally shared this pictures on our Twitter feed @TwilightPoison, live as they happened but if you missed them or if you don’t have a Twitter (you should, because you can see our live updates as soon as they get posted) here they are!
Note: These you can re-post on blogs. Just please link back if you do.
I flew to Comic-Con last week to cover the Twilight panel, press conferences and a few round table interviews with the cast. This is only my second Comic-Con ever, and the second time I’m invited to cover the Twilight promo events in San Diego. Needless to say, I had an amazing time and I really enjoyed seeing the cast together in Comic-Con for the very last time. Bittersweet feelings altogether, I still can’t believe it’s almost over! Can you?
Let’s start from the very beginning. On Wednesday night the cast greeted the fans waiting in Hall H for the Twilight panel the next morning. Twilight had never done anything like this before and even Stephenie Meyer popped up!
See my pictures after the jump.
Last week I attended Comic-Con in San Diego and was invited to cover the Breaking Dawn – Part 2 press conferences with the cast, as well as round table interviews that you will read here next week. Tonight I’m sharing with you the first set of exclusive pictures from the press conference with Jackson Rathbone, Peter Facinelli, Ashley Greene, Nikki Reed, Kellan Lutz and Elizabeth Reaser. I hope you enjoy!
Note: Please do not repost these pictures on your sites. You’re welcome to take only two and link back to the rest. Please help us share this content on its original site. Thank you
Tomorrow I’ll post the first set of pictures from the press conference with Rob, Kristen, Taylor, Stephenie and Mackenzie, so make sure you drop by! I took hundreds of pictures from both press conferences and I really don’t want you to miss them, so i’ll be posting them in four different installments. Don’t forget to check the site next week for exclusive interviews with the cast and a few cool pictures!
ScreenSlam talked to Twilight cast about filming Breaking Dawn-Part 2.
“We’re sort of used to working so intensely together and then being pulled apart and we go back to are own lives and we work on our whole projects, we’re around the world in different places and then we are all sort of put back together for these things, so I think thats whats like a little sad about this, just not knowing if we’re going to be all 30 or 40 or how many there are pull together and placed back here.”
“The Emmett and Bella arm wrestling scene, when we first started this I read all the books, I love that Emmett had finally a big scene with Bella and the arm wrestling scene was just very special to read, I could make to shoot it.”
“it’s been incredible personally to one be apart of something that I love and that I fell in love with is amazing and call it a job, and the fan base that loves my character just as much.”
“Its means everything, I mean we’ve all learned so much, we’ve all grown up so much, probably the biggest thing of me is the relationships and friendships we’ll all take away from this, the franchise is coming to a close but thats definitely not.”
We’ve updated the MTV Movie Awards Gallery with tons of great HQs of the cast on the red carpet, backstage, in the audience and onstage. Don’t miss them!
And speaking of our gallery we just surpassed the 120,000 files mark! Our gallery has had over 10 million hits since we opened it four years ago and it was the first major feature on our site, long before we opened our blog. We started posting files and all the updates from the set of the very first movie. We’ve added everything including the cast’s other projects and their public appearances/sightings and photoshoots. We have also added our own contributions to the fandom with hundreds of scans including Spanish magazines not found anywhere else, live HQ screencaps taken straight from the TV during award shows, and we have personally taken hundreds of exclusive pictures at events, everything from fan events to official photocalls, premieres, press conferences and red carpets in Los Angeles, San Diego, Mexico city, Madrid and New York (Stephenie Meyer once told me at the LA Premiere of Twlight that we had the best pictures ). The gallery is also available for iPhone, Blackberry and Android and in different screen resolutions so you don’t miss anything while you’re not at home. The gallery is also located on a very large server, so we’re never down or slow.
We want to make sure that you find all the pictures that you want (though we stay clear of paparazzi pictures taken during the cast’s time off) and that you share this gallery with all your Twihard friends, so make sure you do! Big thanks to everyone for supporting the gallery, thanks to the fans who share pics with us and those who credit us for the stuff we share. That’s how it works! Keep enjoying the gallery, and expect a new look soon. I think a new layout is long overdue.
Nikki Reed talked to Celebuzz about her new jewerly line, which is her latest project:
“I can’t say who I’m doing it with yet, but it’s very exciting. I drew my own sketches and designed everything myself. I feel like it’s timeless. It feels very vintage. It’s inspired by a lot of the artists in my family who have done creative things. I’ve had a blast doing it! It will be out probably towards the end of the year. It’s funky, but not modern.”
On whether she’ll have babies soon with her husband Paul McDonald, she shared:
“They are more on the brain for Paul than they are from me. Paul is from the South so all of his friends are having babies. He looks at me all the time and goes ‘Should we just do this?’ I’m like, ‘Yeah maybe in a little bit.’”
On vampire Bella she shared:
“I haven’t seen in any clips yet, but I will tell you Kristen [Stewart] makes the most gorgeous vampire– it’s insane. She really does. When we were filming I was just looking at those red eyes — it’s fierce! The fans are going to die.”
On staying in touch with her castmates:
“This is just the honest truth — I see my costars all the time. Kristen and Rob live ten minutes away, so that has been great. They’re great! And Peter [Facinelli] lives five minutes away, Jackson [Rathbone] lives three minutes away. We’re all super close to each other so it has felt like we’re still working together.”
The music video is here!
“I wanted it to be simple and sweet and tell the story of two people and have it be more about the atmosphere,” Reed said. “I don’t know if you notice, but there’s a very specific choice in there with cuts and specific shots that are partial and you can only see parts of our mouths and hands. I don’t want to dwell on the shots of us for too long.”
