Kristen Stewart was worried. Capturing Edward Cullen's proposal to Bella Swan in last year's "Eclipse" came with all sorts of potential hitches. A teen girl and a 100-plus-year-old vampire deciding to get married? A scene that legions of fans had been anticipating for years and which they'd undoubtedly scrutinize? Stewart didn't want to mess it up.
"Well, to decide you're gonna marry someone at 18 is a pretty hefty decision. And I didn't want to look stupid," the actress told us months before the film hit theaters. "I didn't want it to look like kids getting married. You know what I mean? I wanted to be, like, 'Oh! Wow! I would say yes too.' "
"Oh, wow" neatly summarizes moviegoers' reaction to the moment, because the proposal scene was picked as the #2 "Twilight" moment in our fan-voted poll. The ultimate winner will be announced today, just hours before the debut of "MTV First: Breaking Dawn - Part 1," our exclusive interview with Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner. At 7:56 p.m. ET, the three stars will introduce a never-before-seen clip from the upcoming film, which arrives in theaters on November 18. The interview will then continue on MTV.com for a full 30 minutes.
Until then, take a trip back in time and relive that beloved proposal scene. Hear, once again, Edward announce, "Isabella Swan, I promise to love you every moment forever. Would you do me the extraordinary honor of marrying me?"
What do you think she answered? Right. And what do you think Stewart thought of the whole thing? "You try to do it for real, and it felt good," she told us.
Be sure to tune in to "MTV First: Breaking Dawn - Part 1," which kicks off Thursday, November 3, on MTV at 7:56 p.m. ET, followed by a Q&A with Kristen, Rob and Taylor on MTV.com!
