Nikki Reed caught some flak from the media and the Twilight fan community this week, when excerpts of her interview with Seventeen magazine came out and she admitted that the cast members are “not all best friends.” Well, when we had the chance to sit down with the one and only Rosalie Hale we asked her to elaborate a bit, before we all jump to conclusions about strife on the set.
“It’s easy to take any simple, honest, not-negative statement and make it negative,” she said of the quote. “If you think about it, this cast has had so little drama. The press tries to take whatever they can and make it into something, even if it’s just a really silly statement. They’re like, ‘Oh my god, that’s bad!’ But if you think about it, what I was trying to say wasn’t bad at all.
“I was just saying that there’s so many of us, we’ve grown up together, and when people are like, ‘Oh, you’re the Brady Bunch; all 15 of you probably have dinner together six nights a week,’ no, we don’t,” she continued. “That doesn’t mean that we’re not friends. The question that I was asked that day was, ‘Do you think you guys are going to be friends after this movie?’ And I said, I just don’t know. But not in a bad way. There’s just so many of us. I was like, ‘I don’t know, maybe we will, maybe we won’t.’ ”
Today, Nikki was trying not to get the reaction to her quote get the best of her. “When there’s a lot of positive there’s also negative, and I guess it comes with the job,” she said. “I just happen to be really sensitive towards it, but I have to let it go because sometimes people want to do that.”
