While promoting the third Twilight installment, Eclipse, in Australia, Kristen Stewart indulged in one of her favorite hobbies — gently mocking her wereboy bestie!
After three films together, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner are about as comfortable with one another as two people could possibly be. Which is why, while promoting their third Twilight film, Eclipse, in Australia, the two couldn’t resist teasing one another like only BFFs truly can!
“Oh my God. That’s so bad.” Kristen, 20, blurted pre-interview with Australian website TheVine after taking a bite from one of Taylor’s now- famous bulk-up protein bars. Taylor, 18, was quick to confirm, “She’s just tried one of the protein bars that I have to eat right now.” Cue the first jab from Taylor: “Are you bulking up? Yeah, you know it helps but they’re pretty crappy.” After Kristen responded, “It’s disgusting,”, Taylor laughed, “I thought I’d share the joy with her!”
The ribbing continued as Kristen talked about wanting to see one of Taylor’s first flicks, 2005’s The Adventures of Sharkboy and Lavagirl in 3D. “I have to see that movie” K-Stew proclaimed eagerly after hearing about a scene where Taylor, who plays a Lycra-clad boy superhero in the film, sings a lullaby. Embarrassed, he responded, “No, no, no. Don’t. I actually had someone over the other day, literally a week ago, and they hadn’t seen it. And they’d heard about that lullaby and they just wanted to see that scene. So yeah I just watched it a week ago.” Kristen continued teasing, “How did that make you feel? Fully humiliated, Taylor laughed, “It made me feel fantastic.”
Teasing aside, these two Twilight BFFs really DO love one another. While discussing their mutual hatred of interviews, Kristen announced that facing the world as a unit makes life much easier. “I can do it with him,” she said. “It becomes really fun together.”
We can tell — and now officially can’t wait to see the onscreen chemistry between these two real-life best buds when Eclipse premieres June 30!
