The characters in the “Twilight Saga” have been through a lot. In [movie id=”420622″]”Eclipse,”[/movie] due June 30, Kristen Stewart says the trials and tribulations faced by Bella, Edward and Jacob are about to come to a head. And, things are going to get really real, really fast.
“There’s a moment right before the big battle happens; Jacob gets emotional and crazy, and he’s gonna try and hurt himself and fight,” Stewart told MTV News about one of her favorite scenes. “And [Bella] gets to a point where the only way to save him is to kiss him, and what surprises her is, she’s not only able to do it; she can clearly see that he offers a really desirable path that, before, because she was so obsessed with Edward … she just had to like nothing else. She had no perspective, and so it’s a moment.”
Jacob making a strong case to win over Bella makes the supernatural “Twilight” characters seem more human than ever, Stewart said. “If she’s ever reeled, it’s that moment, and then two seconds after, she has to go talk to Edward about it, and he’s heard everything,” she said. “So it’s a little bit more … it’s just not as fantasy. It’s like a little bit more real. These are real people dealing with real problems; they’re not just vampires and wolves.”
This real issue all stems back to the flick’s overarching love triangle , which becomes more intense in this film. “The love triangle is real,” Stewart said. “In [’Eclipse’], she is just older and a little bit more [wise]. Now you really believe her. It took awhile for her to know herself well enough to make a decision.”
