Rob Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, Taylor Lautner & Bill Condon At The 'Twilight' Convention! LIVE BLOGGING!

Sat, November 5, 2011 7:21pm EDT by 7 Comments

We’re blogging live from the Twilight Convention in Los Angeles — follow along with the biggest panel of the day!

HollywoodLife.com gives you an inside look at the The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part One convention at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Culver City, Calif. Finishing up the day is the one panel we’ve all been dying to see: Kristen Stewart, Rob Pattinson, Taylor Lautner and director Bill Condon! (Disclaimer: this isn’t an exact transcription!)
It’s about to begin in less than 10 minutes!
They are setting up the chairs!

THEY ARE HERE!

B: The last shot. rob was standing around all night. Everyone was gettinga little teary. Kristen was getting sentimental but never likes to admit it. Kristen took off running in the wedding dress, yelling, Jacob! I made a mistake!

K: She’s older than me. I was young when I started. It’s funny. I was always worried about her for no reason. She’s perfectly fine. Honest.

What will you miss the most?
R: You guys. We kind of grew up together. I was already a man…but these guys…[laughter]A lot of us have made some great friendships and have gone on this incredibly surreal strange journey together.

Greatest compliment from fan:
B: Never got one.
T: To be honest, we are very fortunate to hear a lot of nice things from you guys. One of the things that means the most to me is this one fan…who tells me I haven’t changed. That is probably the greatest compliment from you guys.

Favorite line:
K: We did basic vows, which mean soo much more. Saying them in front of a whole bunch of people who don’t really know really what is going on between you guys. They aren’t normal. They are skewed. Forever actually means forever. I had never read it like that before.

Happy to get rid of the contact?
R: Was I happy to get rid of them? Yes. Yes, I was.
T: The answer’s yes.

What was the best part about directing these three?
B: You know, the best thing was the first time we met just how this is the fourth and fifth movie and they were more into it than ever. I can’t tell you how seriously they took it. Rob was always pointing things out. It was great, great, great to work with these three. They are all incredible.

What did you think of your wedding dress?
K: I was so relieved, man. There are many things that could take you out of the moment…it’s funny. People keep asking if I had input. I didn’t need it. I never imagined what I would have been wearing. I’m glad I didn’t have to. Ultimately I thought it was very beautiful and I loved it.

Coldest day to shoot?
T: This one is easy. The rain scene in New Moon was absolutely ridiculous. It was 38 degrees Fahrenheit. I was wearing nothing but little jean shorts. On top of that, that would have been bad enough. It was rain tower rain. They took it from the stream. We filmed that scene for 12 straight hours. We had contact lens on.

K: Googly eyes. Literally. They were like swimming around in my head.

Best day on set?
B: The dance scene.
K: Was it the dance scene or the reception?
B: That’s what I meant.
K: One dance matters to me.
R: [Rob shakes head]

What was unexpectedly the easiest and hardest thing about shooting?
B: The scene where Bella gave birth and dies. Once it happened the entire crew got quiet. It was like something real was happening. Once it happened.
K: The birth scene was difficult. I didn’t want to stop it. I kept wanting to push it further.

Best advice your parents gave you?
T: [Thinking] Uhh…they didn’t give me specific advice. My parents have always taught me to work hard. Nothing comes without hard work. It kind of has required a lot of hard work. That’s probably the biggest thing.

TAKE YOUR SHIRT OFF!!! (Crowd yells)

Most memorable thing about the Saga?
KRISTEN! Crowd yells
R: I think the whole thing is a good memory. The one scene I will take away with me is the dance at the end of the first one in the gazebo. That was a really great moment. There were all these little frogs croaking around. It was really sweet. That moment started this whole…uh…thing.

How does it feel to be a vampire?
K: It feels sooo good. She was literally born to do this. I think she is. Definitely.

Have you seen it? What are your thoughts:
B: I like it.
R: I liked it as well.
T: I’m actually really really proud of it. I think everyone involved should be. I’ll use this moment to brag about Bill for a little bit. Sometimes it seems like it would be tough playing these characters for so long with different directors — but obviously this guy is talented as a director but more impressive for me is him as a person. He creates a great mood/environment on set.

What is your dream role?
B: A movie without special effects.
R: Ummm…
K: Snow White.
CROWD CHEERS

Auditioning:

K: I auditioned when I was doing Adventure Land. I spent like four hours in the room with Catherine. I sort of left knowing I had the part. The next step was meeting this guy.

R: I had to do a meeting at Catherine’s house in Venice.

K: The address is…hahaha

R: I read with Kristen for like four hours as well. I remember doing a couple different things. A bunch of different stuff. [says more]

K: Listen, man. You better watch it. This is near and dear.

R: Felt like a much different movie than I thought it was going to be when I first read it.

K: I convinced her it was definitely the right idea.

THANK YOU, KRISTEN. Crowd.

About Bella:
K: She’s known herself for a really long time. You would die for it, but you don’t know why. I can so relate to being so emotional for something… In this one she’s soo clear. She’s the steady finger in the middle of all this chaos. That’s the first time I realized, the whole growing up thing — isn’t about getting married and having a baby — it’s that. So that was fun.

Who do you want to thank:

K: I have to say. This won’t work. I’ve attempted many times. What I really love about this situation is that it’s so not normal. I can’t think of a better metaphor…the reason… [carries on, but not really...sorry]

R: The amount of press and stuff we do, it’s insanely boring. Now people are screaming “pull your pants down” or whatever, it does make it a little more exciting. The Twilight fans — it’s like throw a bunch of people together. I’ve never seen fanatics with such a love for a series. Even Harry Potter. Twilight fans are literally on the verge of being literally insane. It’s like being hit by a tidal wave. It’s been a lot of fun over the years.

they arent renaming them those are all names of Native American ritbes. imdb is a great site but they rely on their members for data. someone was probably trying to be funny. dont worry i just went on and corrected them it should be back to normal in a few days.

I am concerned that Kristen Stewart becomes so painfully and dangerously thin in the movie. As this film has such iconic cult status, it could be a worrying message. I am wondering did she really become this thin for the film or is it trick photography?

Hollywoodlife. Stop writing about justin Bieber and Robsten all the time. You should change the sites name to Twilight and Bieber Life.

Some of the so called fans at this event were so RUDE!! One yelled out Rob your in the closet! Kristen came to his defensive right off but what I found disturbing is that Bill was sitting right there. He is a proud openly gay male and why anyone waste their time comeing to these events,only to be so ignorant!! Get a life!
