The good news is that we’re only a few weeks away from the November 21 release of “Twilight” — the bad news, folks, is that also means there are only a handful of “Twilight” Tuesdays left.
And since the greatest fireworks shows always end with a big bang, this week is a good one. First off, be sure to head over to the Movies Blog for a major announcement about how you can join Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Catherine Hardwicke at an exclusive MTV “Twilight” event. Then, take a look below for our final installment in the “Twilight” Stars Answer Fans’ Burning Questions series.
Now, for the final time (well, before the sequels, anyway), read on to learn about RPattz’s desire to join the Wu-Tang Clan, Ashley’s desire to kick Barbie’s butt and the shocking truth about which castmember runs like a mountain goat.
Q: “If ’Twilight’ is a hit, what would be the coolest thing about being in a blockbuster?” – Puppy Love
Ashley Greene (Alice Cullen): I want an action figure. An action figure would be really, really cool.
MTV: Are there any plans? Have you heard anything?
Greene: There’s been talk. Hopefully, [the film will] do well enough that all that stuff can come out, and they’ll have posters and action figures and everything. [To Jackson] Would you want an action figure?
Jackson Rathbone (Jasper Hale): Sure, why not?
MTV: What would you do with your action figure once you got it?
Greene: I would put it up on a pedestal, with stuff around it. The funny thing is if they came out with an action figure — they did such a good job at making us look the part — that my action figure wouldn’t even really look like me as a person. But it would be cool to have it, as a character.
MTV: You could have her hang out with Barbie.
Greene: No, it would kick Barbie’s butt. It would not be like Barbie.
Q: “What can you tell us about Robert’s music?” – Alice
Kellan Lutz (Emmett Cullen): Actually, we would go out a lot in Oregon when we were shooting. There was a little karaoke place, a bar next to the hotel where we were staying at. We would go there every Thursday, and he would just play and rock out. He is an amazing artist.
MTV: Robert has two songs on the soundtrack . Could you tell us anything about the lyrics?
Lutz: No, I could not! Because that is his passion, that is his baby. He told me, he was like, “Do not!” He would come to our house and he would play for some of our friends, and when we were all hanging out he said [in a bad RPattz voice]: “Do not repeat these!” That was a terrible Rob impersonation, by the way.
Q: “There’s a lot of stunt work. Who is the worst at it?” – Wolf23
Nikki Reed (Rosalie Hale): I could tell you immediately, but I don’t know if that’s, like, the nicest thing to say.
Reed: He’s asking, “Who would you say is the least athletic?” We’ll have the same answer.
Lutz: Let’s hear yours — go ahead.
Reed: No, let’s say, “One, two, three,” and then say it.
Reed: One, two, three …
Lutz and Reed: Rob.
Lutz: Yes! Awesome.
Reed: Rob is the least athletic person.
Lutz: But he runs cute! His running is cute — and I rarely ever say “cute” as a word.
Reed: He runs like a mountain goat.
Lutz: They’ll tell me, Emmett, to run in front of him to block him out, so he looks cool.
Q: “Team Edward, Team Jacob or Team Switzerland?” – Andreanna
Taylor Lautner (Jacob Black): Um … Team Switzerland?
MTV: Do you know what that question means? Could you explain it? [Editor’s note: This question was asked before Lautner began shooting the film, many months ago.]
Lautner: I don’t. [Laughs.]
MTV: Well, the fans divide themselves into whether they think Bella should go with Edward, Jacob or Switzerland — which means in between, since Switzerland is a neutral country.
Lautner: OK, gotcha. That makes more sense Considering that I’m Jacob, I definitely would have to say Team Jacob all the way.
MTV: I love that you heard the Team Jacob option and still went with Switzerland, even though you’re Jacob.
Lautner: Exactly. [Laughs.] I just thought it sounded interesting.
Q: “Cam, do you and Robert stay in character and hate each other between takes?” – Yasmine
Cam Gigandet (James): Very much. [Laughs.] No, not at all. No, definitely not.
MTV: What would you guys talk about between takes, before you had to turn it on again and start slamming each other in the face?
Gigandet: We would spend a lot of our time talking about our work and the scene and any ideas we had — that was how we spent most of the in-between time at work. If we went to dinner or anything, it would be about our lives, I guess. What do friends talk about?
Q: “Kristen, is there a Bella moment that reminds you of yourself in real life?” – Ken
Kristen Stewart (Bella Swan): I think going into high school for the first day. The line “suffer-in-silence type” — some people get the wrong idea if you’re quiet and you’re just not the most gregarious person. [They think] that you’re self-involved, rude, possibly, sometimes frigid. I get that a lot from people that don’t know me, like online. All you guys think that I don’t smile ever. It’s not true. I do smile sometimes. But walking into high school, for sure, is overwhelming. I’m not the type of person to just stroll in and be like, “Hey, everybody! How are ya?” So, I could relate to that.
Q: “If you could play any other “Twilight” character, who would it be and why? – Amal
Christian Serratos (Angela Weber): Oh, jeez, that’s such a hard question. I’d probably do one of the bad vampires — not necessarily in “Twilight,” but in the entire series. Maybe even James or Victoria. [I’d want to] play kind of another character, kind of a badass.
Q: “Rob, do you like Arctic Monkeys?” – Jen Elias
Robert Pattinson (Edward Cullen): Yeah, I do kind of like them, actually. Not that much, but I like some of their songs.
MTV: What’s your favorite song by them?
Pattinson: I don’t know them that well … probably their first one. What was their first song called? [Editor’s note: We think Rob is referring to “I Bet You Look Good on the Dancefloor.”] I’ve completely forgotten what it’s called. They’re all right.
MTV: Who is your favorite band?
Pattinson: At the moment, I’ve really gotten into hip-hop again recently. I’m reliving my childhood. I’ve been listening to a lot of Wu-Tang Clan. I always wanted to be a rapper when I was younger. That’s always what I wanted to be before I started acting — that’s what I wanted to do, was be a rapper. I didn’t have the right physicality about it — I’m not very threatening.
