‘New Moon’ Panel At Comic Con Brings More News

July 23rd, 2009 // Leave a Comment

So the New Moon stars have been busy all day long, chatting about the upcoming movie and as we speak, Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner are fielding more questions.

Earlier this morning, they talked about the upcoming Twilight sequel during a press conference. Then, the gang returned for today’s New Moon panel, as reported live by Robert Pattinson.com and Zap2it. As it turns out, fans were excited about Taylor’s buff physique, but not as keen on Kristens black hair that she’s sporting for her role in The Runaways as Joan Jett.

A big crowd-pleaser was a clip of Taylor taking off his shirt. Just before, he informed the audience, “I worked really hard to transform his body…I hope you guys are pleased when you see the results.” And from the reaction he received, they sound pleased.

Fans had an opportunity to answer questions, which resulted in everyone learning that Kristen was riding on a fake motorcycle and despite her hard-rocking look, she has no interest in riding a real one.

Also in attendance at the panel were Ashley Greene and director Chris Weitz. Ashley confessed that she brings her optimism to her role as Alice Cullen and loved the experience of shooting New Moon.

Chris joked that Rob is cold to the touch while Rob admitted that he’d love to star in a comedy, but only if he could play an idiot. To sum up the experience, Weitz probably said it best when he told the audience, “No deaths, happy for that. Kristen sprained an ankle. Taylor did every stunt he could do. Rob just stood there and looked good.”

Nuff said.
