Bill Condon says that the vampire sex in Breaking Dawn Part 2 was “easier” to figure out than the vampire-human sex in Breaking Dawn Part 1 (yes, I’m bring you all the hard-hitting news in this post). “All we know about vampire sex is that it’s really, really good in a way we can’t even imagine. So it was more abstract.”
The director – who is an absolute delight to chat with – credits Rob Pattinson for coming up with the vampire sex scene’s most pivotal lovemaking move. “Rob had the absolute best idea for it,” he says. “He was like, ‘you know what her real erogenous zone is that I really want to start with? It’s right here on her neck, because that’s the classic place where a vampire bites somebody, so it’s the one place he’s never been able to kiss her before, because he can’t trust himself. So now that he’s a vampire he can finally attack that neck.’”
Bill adds, “It was a great way to get started.”
Um, yeah it was. Now, as Bill was telling me this, my pervy fangirl brain was buzzing between how hot it is that Rob was basically directing where on his girlfriend he wanted to kiss first in the sex scene and how sad I was that he chose Kristen Stewart‘s neck over her arm pit. But you know, beggars can’t be chosers, right?
We’ve seen the vampire sex and are dying to talk with you all about it. Let’s discuss on November 16th, shall we?
With Kristen Stewart talking to VH1 News about her maternal urges, this clip of boyfriend Robert Pattinson talking about his relationship with his father made us all googly-eyed and hopeful about the recently patched-up couple going the distance. Pattinstew babies, anyone? When Kate Spencer sat the actor down, she asked him whether his experiences with his dad — that’s Mr. Pattinson to you — had in anyway prepared him to play a father on screen to Renesmee. After throwing out one of those adorable, baffled giggles of his, he laughed, “Maybe subconsiously? I don’t know!” But then he let the question sink in and replied, “It’s funny, my dad was working tons when I was growing up, so it’s strange that Edward would just be around all the time. Neither one of them work, so it’s an unusual dynamic.” Just when we were starting to feel a little bummed out, he finished with the one thing that made our ovaries ache more than usual when he’s anywhere in the picture. He added, “I would hope that … He’s a pretty good dad so I would hope that his stuff would come into me as well.” Read more…
If you’re like us, you’ve been following this election nonstop for a while — and if you’re like us, you mean the presidential election as much as the Twi-Fight going on over on MTV. Now we’re on pins and needles waiting to see if Kate or Jasper could possibly pull off an upset against Bella and Edward. But we also think it was kind of sadistic to pit the Cullens against any of the other vampires in the franchise. That’s why we decided to make our own little contest here this week — and to make the criteria a little bit simpler: we’re asking you to judge Volturi, Denalis, Amazonians and James’ crew all alike, purely based on their hotness. This is also tough, considering the fact that in Stephenie Meyer‘s mythology, all vampires are hot. But your blood might sing for some more than others. We managed to narrow this down to 20 vamps in all, now it’s your turn! Peruse the pics and vote. Poll closes Monday at 8 a.m.

When Anthony Mackie first told VH1 News about his playing golf with his “homeboy” Robert Pattinson, we were ecstatic about the image of the two in their best crazy-print pants, tee-ing off and shooting the breeze, or insert some other golf-y thing here. So of course when Kate Spencer got the chance to sit down with Rob at the Breaking Dawn – Part 2 press day last week, she asked him about his game. And then Rob promptly shattered our dreams.
“I don’t understand where this has come from!” Rob said, laughing. “I’ve seen him do another interview as well. I’m like, what is this? He’s really deadpan joking about it. I mean, I would love to, but, uh. Unless this has happened without me realizing it. Which is possible.”
Oh, no! Is someone drugging Rob and placing him on random man-dates with Hollywood’s finest actors? Also, is Anthony pulling our leg about HIS ENTIRE FRIENDSHIP with Rob, or just about the golf thing? Because if those two aren’t friends yet, as the Hurt Locker also claimed to MTV earlier this year, we need to set them up. Their dry sense of humor is perfectly calibrated for each other! OR, maybe Rob is the one messing with us (and Anthony) and he’s making up the fact that Anthony made it up.
On the other hand, Rob’s “incredulous” expression is one of our favorites, so maybe more people should make up harmless stories like this:
Kristen Stewart plays a mom in Breaking Dawn 2, which IMHO, is even more fierce than being a vampire (but I’m a mom, so I’m probably biased). She totally nails the ferocious, feral mother thing in the film, and told me that it was the “one thing in the story that I took to.”
Says Kristen, “I’ve always thought that I was going to be a mom, but so so so far down the line. I’m not the type of person that’s like, “Oh, I can’t wait!” And I’m not hugely into babies, I don’t melt over the baby thing. But there’s something about protecting your own that is just absolutely ingrained me. I know that I’m gonna probably be a mom.”
As for that instinctive protective mom vibe, she says, “I definitely felt that. It was one of my favorite thing about playing this part, how animal she gets.”
In true Kristen fashion, she responded to my compliment about her onscreen mothering skills with “Cool! That’s f*cking awesome.”
Kristen also said she currently feels like a mom to her two dogs Bear and Bernie.
More clips from my interview with the Breaking Dawn cast will be up Monday, including Robert Pattinson talking about his alleged golf habit and director Bill Condon on Rob’s vampire sex moves. Thanks for watching, guys!
Having seen Breaking Dawn Part 2 (you guys!!!) I was particularly touched by the scenes between Bella and her daughter Renesmee (played by Mackenzie Foy). She’s protective to the point where she’d sacrifice herself for he daughter’s safety, and Kristen Stewart plays the maternal vampire with raw, realistic emotion. When we sat down to talk at the press junket yesterday, we discussed the she feels maternal about in her own life.
“I do have two dogs,” says Kristen. “I adopted Bernie when she was a bit older so I feel like she’s kind of a roommate. And Bear is my child. I raised him. He was handed to me through a car window with one hand, on this movie actually.”
Cute, huh? Bernie seems to be a new addition to Kristen’s dog family. And a girl, too! (I assumed Bernie would be a dude, but I guess it’s short for Bernice?) On Monday we’ll post the second part of Kristen’s answer to our maternal question, in which she gets serious talking about her mothering instinct and her tangible desire for kids. Stay tuned!
Happy Friday, VH1ers! We’re dedicating today’s episode of Very VH1 to Breaking Dawn. Join us as we discuss yesterday’s Breaking Dawn – Part 2 press day with fellow Twilight fan, Taryn Ryder. Watch the show below at 2PM EST and click on the comment icon in the upper right hand corner to participate in the chat!
Seeing Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner get to make fun of my old pal Josh Horowitz one last time is reason enough for me to hope for some kind of weird spin-off movie one day, far off in the future. This can’t be the last time! But until that strange day comes to pass, we’ll instead wax nostalgic about the live stream that happened tonight, with a look back at the stars’ sweetest moments on the Breaking Dawn – Part 2 MTV First. In no particular order.
1) “The actual end end for me felt like the end,” Rob said seriously, before cracking himself up over the absurdity of that statement. Does he mean the last scene they shot? The last time they did ADR? Or the last scene in the movie? Who cares, as long as he keeps laughing like that (see above).
2) Which of them is most like his or her character?
If any of you Twi-hards read our own Kate Spencer’s live tweets from the Breaking Dawn – Part 2 press conference today, you know that the stars of the Twilight franchise are in rare form today. And we’ll all get to witness it for ourselves when Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner sit down with MTV’s Josh Horowitz for another MTV First installment live at 8 p.m. ET. Watch along with us and share your reactions to the live stream by tweeting us @VH1Celebrity. We’ll use your best quotes (and squees!) in a post later.
For five years now, there’s been one big event that truly marks the beginning of Twilight season: The premiere of the first video from the latest movie’s soundtrack. Last night, we saw the premiere of Green Day’s “The Forgotten,” the first single off Breaking Dawn -Part 2‘s disc. It combines a lot of the elements we’ve seen in earlier Twilight videos — clips of Edward and Bella, beautiful forest scenes, that filter that makes everything look like an old home movie — while also being very Green Day. You’re not going to see Billie Joe and company strolling about in the woods, even if this song is rather emo. Instead, they’re performing in a concert and a recording studio.
Other acts have taken a more literal approach to the videos accompanying the saga. Does that work better for you than the detached concert thing, or is it all about the music? Take a look at four other quintessential Twilight videos and then vote for your favorite below.
