“She’s like 110 lbs? It’s no big deal,” Taylor originally said of holding Kristen. But he changed his tune after toting her around for a full day of shooting Eclipse.
You’d think 20-year-old Eclipse star Kristen Stewart, at 5’6″and about 110 lbs, would be as light as a feather for co-star Taylor Lautner, 18, to carry around — but you’d be wrong. Even with his karate training and new muscles, “it was hard … it was painful,” Taylor confessed to MTV!
“There’s a scene where I’m carrying her, and it’s also, like, four pages of dialogue,” Taylor explained. “We filmed that scene ALL day long — did the wide shot, did my close-up, did her close-up, the back shot, everything!”
“We actually had plans, a rig that was basically going to carry her, and I was just going to pretend that I was carrying her,” Taylor continued. “we got there on the day, and the rig didn’t look very natural. They were like, ‘What are we going to do?’ and I’m like, ‘I’ll just carry her. She’s like, what, 110 pounds? It’s no big deal!’ Boy was he wrong.
But, that’s not the only situation Taylor was bracing himself for. He also wanted K-Stew to punch him! “I wanted her just to give me a shot, let her punch me once, and we’ll be done,” he said. “Of course, we couldn’t do that, so it was some major technical thing where I had to stand there and pretend I’m getting punched and then … we had to have her fist punching a bag. It was very technical.”
