With the official release of “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1,” just a few days away, it’s hard to focus on anything else “Twilight”-related. But here at MTV News we can and do, particularly since we managed to snag an interview with Mackenzie Foy on Monday night at the Los Angeles premiere, where the adorable young actress said she was only allowed to see “bits and pieces,” given a few intense and steamy scenes ,
Never mind the fact that there’s still another year to go before we see Foy onscreen when “Breaking Dawn – Part 2,” opens, we were just excited to talk to her about playing Renesmee, the half-vampire/ half-human daughter of Edward and Bella.
“To be honest, I’m really excited about this part too,” Foy gushed. “I knew that [playing] Renesmee Cullen was going to be a big, amazing experience. I knew that she was going to be an amazing big part to do and I’m ready for it and I did it.”
The blue-eyed, brown-haired 11-year-old admitted that she might look “just a little bit like” her onscreen parents, Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart, and had nothing but praise for how nice everyone was to her during filming — except, of course, when it came to using naughty language. We heard Foy made out like a bandit by charging her co-stars money every time they swore, so we asked her to confirm.
“Yes, it is true! They would say bad words, and I put it all in this little bucket called the ’Swear Jar.’ I don’t really know [how much I made], I know it was a lot but I donated it all to St. Jude’s,” she revealed, adding that no one in particular was more foul-mouthed than any other castmember. “They all swear pretty evenly,” she said.
We moved on to another important question: Like millions of other Twilighters, does Foy think co-star Pattinson is cute?
“I don’t see him as cute,” she said matter-of-factly. “He’s really nice and all, but he’s more of a friend or a brother or a dad to me. … Kristen is an amazing, sweet, wonderful actress and I’m so lucky to be working with her,” she added. “She’s an amazing person.”
And what does she think about Taylor Lautner, her would-be future onscreen love interest? “He is nice, he’s funny, he just loves to be with people,” Foy said. “I loved working with all of them; they’re really sweet.”
Finally, regarding her favorite scene to shoot, Foy hinted that it’s one toward the end of the movie (and likely the franchise) between Renesmee and Jacob. “My favorite scene to shoot was one of the very last scenes with Taylor. It’s one where I’m on him and it’s just really cool,” she teased. “I’m not going to give out details, but it’s a really amazing scene.”
