Early Tuesday morning, astronomy freaks had the pleasure of seeing a lunar eclipse take place on the winter solstice for the first time since 1638. It certainly isn't the first eclipse to take place this year, however. This summer, Hollywood saw a major "Eclipse" when the third film in "The Twilight Saga" was released in June. So, in honor of this week's historic event, we take a look at some of the castmembers' best quotes about their own "Eclipse."
Everyone was buzzing about that [article id="1642731"]tent scene[/article] and it seems like it delivered. When MTV News spoke to [article id="1639465"]Elizabeth Reaser[/article] about the scene, which [article id="1626713"]Taylor Lautner admitted was his favorite[/article], she had a very interesting take on the whole thing.
"The tent scene is sort of a three-way — I mean, it's a chaste three-way, but it is, nonetheless, a three-way," Reaser said. "So I do think that ups the sexiness factor in this movie, but I don't know. The first movie, I thought, was intensely sexy, because [Bella and Edward] couldn't touch, and to watch them fall in love was so sexy. And I love that, in the books, they all have great chemistry. So it's fun to watch."
Much of the Bella/Jacob love story is chaste, but as [article id="1641791"]Kristen Stewart pointed out[/article] around the release of "Eclipse," she could see why Bella would consider life with Jacob, especially during that epic battle sequence.
"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 said 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."
[article id="1641569"]Robert Pattinson[/article] apparently doesn't enjoy filming action sequences for the "Twilight" movies, but he said he had less of a problem with the ones in "Eclipse." "You're always wearing skinny jeans, a little blazer and a kind of woolen sweater and trying to act like you're tough," he laughed. "You just know it's not going to happen. For some reason, I felt a lot more comfortable with the action stuff this time."
Of course, no "Twilight" movie would be complete without seeing Jacob shirtless, and Lautner admitted that disrobing for this film was a lot easier than in the series' previous installment. "It's better when it's warmer," [article id="1641926"]Lautner joked[/article]. " 'Eclipse' was better than 'New Moon' because we filmed it in the summer. But it's still a little different when I'm the only person on set with a shirt off."
