With the final two releases of the Twilight film series set to premiere within the next eighteen months, fans of the saga (affectionately known as Twihards) are not the only ones bursting with excitement. Actress (and envied gal pal of Robert Pattinson) Kristen Stewart and the film's director Bill Condon sat down with Entertainment Weekly to talk about their building anticipation with the to-be-released films.
Stewart, known for her frank discontent with the media, opened up to the mag saying that the final film which is set to be released in two parts was "one of the coolest things that I've ever done...it was just so perfect for me in that moment. It was so emotional in such a real way."
Condon took The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn global in a worldwide shoot that tests the limits of a PG-13 rating, and sees the characters of the series moving on from high school and growing up. Condon adds "We shot everything — whether it’s the lovemaking or the childbirth — as potent and powerful as it can be. It will be interesting to see whether there will be people who think it too disturbing for this universe.”
One who wishes that the restrictions of PG-13 were not placed on the franchise is Stewart who would have loved to have portrayed the graphic childbirth scenes as true to the book: "It could have been shocking and grotesque...I would have loved to have been puking up blood."
Stewart appears on the cover of this week's Entertainment Weekly alongside on-and-off screen beau Pattinson, with a second cover featuring the other Twilight heartthrob –Taylor Lautner. The final two films are set for release in November 18, 2011 and the following November respectively.
