Robert Pattinson Relishes Kristen Stewart’s Contact-Lens Discomfort

Stewart didn't understand why her co-star complained about his 'Twilight' vampire contacts until she had to wear her own.

Aside from ending what has been roughly five years of hard work and incredibly pale skin, “Breaking Dawn” brought a different type of satisfaction to Robert Pattinson. The end of the “Twilight Saga” meant that his co-star Kristen Stewart would finally understand the pain he’s had to endure the entire time they’ve spent shooting the films.

It’s not a great spoiler to say that Stewart’s Bella will become a bloodthirsty, red-eyed vampire at some point during the two-part finale, whose first installment opens on November 18. This has been a long time coming for Bella, the fans and, it turns out, Pattinson.

Getting into character meant a change of eye color for Stewart and some vindication for her co-star. In the nicest way possible, Pattinson explained to MTV News’ Josh Horowitz that knowing Stewart would have to experience the discomfort of his vampire contact lenses was “a great feeling.”

Stewart had her own set of contacts to wear as the human version of Bella to turn her eyes brown, but those apparently did not hurt, unlike the gold contacts that Pattinson had worn since the beginning of the series. “She’s like, ‘I wear contact lenses. Why do you always complain about yours?’ ” Pattinson said.

When Stewart finally did change into her vampire eyes, Pattinson got what he had been waiting for. “When she finally wore them and then was complaining about them every second of the day,” he admitted, “it was kind of satisfying.”
