After Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, and Taylor Lautner hit Oprah‘s stage at Harpo Studios to tape the Twilight episode, they immediately sat down backstage with USA Today to discuss (and of course not discuss) they’re lives and the Twilight experience. They only posted this photo from the article, but a giving fan shared this adorable one from the paper’s front page.
There’s no reason Kristen and Rob would answer the relationship for USA Today after they would only tell Oprah Winfrey off camera, but the reporter gets the answer in body language. “Let’s just say it wasn’t Lautner who placed a hand on Pattinson’s leg during a portion of the interview,” writer Susan Wloszczyna shares.
But Taylor did get a little big of action on set if only a little nuzzle. In a scene in Eclipse where Jacob is transformed to his CGI wolf self, he nuzzles Bella and she scratches his ear, but Stewart was actually scratching Taylor’s head in real life.
“There is dialogue and I talk to him,” Stewart explains. “I said, ‘How am I going to do this without Taylor?’ ” So instead of the actress pretending that a massive computer-animated wolf was nearby, Lautner volunteered to be its stand-in.
“That day I came on set and put on this tight gray spandex suit. Basically, it looked like a Teletubby,” Taylor shared. “I had this circle on the face but everything else was covered. It was weird. But, yeah, I stood there and would literally bend over …”
“I would actually pet his head,” Stewart says.
More from Robert Pattinson after the jump.
Rob (someone got a haircut!), who was doing some errands with his bodyguard and a mysterious
script in his backpack on Sunday (May 16), says he struggled with
Edward’s proposal scene. “I was dreading the day it was coming,” he
says of the scene that was held until the very end of the shoot. “The
first time I read the script, I thought, ‘This is impossible.’ ”
References to “promenades” and sharing “iced tea on the porch” as
Edward explains how he would have courted Bella in the old days felt
strange. “It’s so earnest. I finally convinced the producers that you
can play it with a bit of awareness of not being a fictional character.
I’m not trying to be part of a Gothic novel.”
He sounds like the proposal was actually more difficult than the sex scenes in Bel Ami.
“They’re not like typical love scenes at all,” he shares of his sexy next flick.
