'Breaking Dawn' invades Comic-Con: Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner
We can see Twi-fever on the horizon: "Breaking Dawn" has landed at Comic-Con.
The vampire franchise and its stars, Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner, descended on San Diego's annual comic convention Thursday for a panel discussion about the first part of the series' epic conclusion.
In a loose-fitting white shirt and black bra, Stewart was flanked by her male costars answering burning questions about fan-favorite plot points — like a gory birth scene featuring her and Pattinson.
"I think the birth scene...for a fantasy scene that has kind of a youngish audience, it goes very far," Pattinson said according to HitFix. The actor labels the scene "hardcore" but insists "there was no other way to do it."
Stewart seems in a reflective place about the films, ones that have catapulted the 21-year-old to stardom.
"I've been building up to these moments for four years. I was 17 when I started doing this movie," she said.
As for the standard behind-the-scenes fun facts, Pattinson dropped this gem about Stewart's downtime obsession: cooking shows.
"Kristen literally only watches the Cooking Channel. And especially on set, it's bizarre. She has a TV in her trailer, and it's always on. It's her only diva-ish behavior," said Pattinson.
"And you all reap the benefits," Stewart shot back.
