'Breaking Dawn' stars leave handprints, footprints in Hollywood

November 3, 2011 |  2:18 pm

Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner got immortalized in a non-vampire fashion Thursday, as the "Twilight Saga" triumvirate left imprints of their hands and feet outside Hollywood's Grauman's Chinese Theater.

"You're not gonna kill us, right?" emcee Jimmy Kimmel asked the massive crowd of fans assembled on Hollywood Boulevard, introducing the bright young things before KStew, RPatz and Tay-Tay plunged their mitts into cement.

"It's because of the unbelievably enthusiastic fan support that … the stars of this film are unable to come out of their homes," Kimmel said. 

"I think this is really cool to be a part of Hollywood history," author Stephenie Meyer — looking incredibly svelte — said of the three stars.

"I'm excited for them, and I'm also very proud of them," the "Twilight" world's creator said. "Their lives have changed so much over the past few years, and they've done it with so much class."

"This is so crazy for us," Stewart said as the crowd shrieked, "I've been so enamored by this business, Hollywood. … I think this is the coolest thing I've ever done in my life."

In a black-and-nude mini, Stewart turned over the mike to a sunglasses-sporting Pattinson, who thanked fans for their consistency before suggesting everyone come up and put their own hands in the cement.

For you fans, we note a signature KStew move: The actress, who arrived in a chic pair of Brian Atwood pumps, changed into a black-and-white-checked pair of Vans to leave her footprint.
