When you think about [movie id="369646"]“Twilight”[/movie] and the soon-to-release [movie id="414921"]“New Moon,”[/movie] there are plenty of words that come to mind — but they probably don’t include “big hugs” and “sexual white chocolate.” Well, that’s about to change.
As we continue this week’s “New Moon” Stars Answer Fans’ Burning Questions , a Cullen, a Volturi leader and a nomad take the spotlight, answering queries straight from the lips of Twilighters. Read on for some revealing answers, as well as a good laugh.
Jamie Campbell Bower
Q: Have you been able to meet Stephenie Meyer yet?
Campbell Bower: Yes, she’s fantastic. She’s really lovely. I got to meet with her a couple of days before we started filming and spoke to her about the characters and stuff.
MTV: What kind of notes did she have for you?
Campbell Bower: [We spoke about] this idea that [the Volturi] are fairly cultured and very civilized. They’ve been around for 2,000 years, and [Caius] has got this deep-rooted anger in him. That was about it. I mean, we literally just sat down. She didn’t give me any specific notes and such.
Q: You and Nikki [Reed] are my favorite characters/couple. I loved how you played them in “Twilight.” Will we see a bit more of their relationship in “New Moon”?
Lutz: “New Moon” doesn’t really focus on the Cullen family enough. [Our screen time] is just like the kitchen scene in “Twilight,” with the family when Bella comes in with Edward. We try to gravitate towards our significant others as much as we can in the scenes that are allowed. With “New Moon,” there aren’t really too many scenes that we can show Emmett and Rosalie’s relationship.
MTV: So is it all about sneaking in glances to each other and maybe holding hands at a certain point, that kind of stuff?
Lutz: Yeah, I guess we sneak as much as we can in there. It’s really how [director] Chris [Weitz] lines us up and what’s better for the lighting, what’s better for the camera. I’m much larger than Nikki, so I don’t want to block her light. If they put us together, great — but then again, Rosalie’s character is more of the standoffish one with Bella, versus Emmett. It’s fine either way, so he’s really happy when he gives the radio to Bella for her birthday and the big hugs and stuff.
Q: What is the last thing that you Googled?
Gathegi: What was the last thing that I Googled? [Laughs.] Kellan Lutz.
MTV: And what came up when you Googled Kellan Lutz?
Gathegi: Sexual white chocolate. [Laughs.] Onesies and M&M’s, that’s what came up. Bear Claws, Emmett Cullen — I could keep going. What did I Google, in all seriousness? Indian restaurants, that’s what I Googled, because Rachelle [Lefevre] and I [were] planning to go to an Indian restaurant in Vancouver, so she asked me what kind of Indian restaurants I knew. I started Googling some that I wanted to potentially hit up [while we were shooting "New Moon"] for comparison.
