OK! caught up with Nikki Reed last night, and the Twilight beauty dished on all the details of Breaking Dawn filming! First stop — not Vancouver. “We’re heading to New Orleans first, in just over a week,” Nikki told OK! exclusively at the Swatch New Gents launch. She also shared some set traditions and what her co-stars enjoy when they have a break from shooting!
So first stop is Louisiana and from the sound of it Nikki is exciting for a good “set” cooked meal from co-star Peter Facinelli!
“Well Peter’s like a chef – a super chef. He makes a mean pasta with a vodka sauce,” Nikki shares. “Everyone is so different and the nice thing is we spend a fair amount of time apart even when we’re working, so it never gets weird or funny. Jackson brings his whole band when we’re shooting and they do their thing, Elizabeth and I go to the gym and do fun stuff like that.”
So what about Kristen Stewart?
“Kristen does her thing,” Nikki told OK!.
K-Stew probably wants to spend some alone time with on/off screen boyfriend Robert Pattinson.
Besides working out, Nikki will be extra busy this time around, as she plans to take classes!
“I’m going to school actually while we’re shooting. I’m taking a couple of courses. I’m talking five, but I was just told that two are unavailable so I’m waiting to see. I’m taking a language course, I’m taking a writing course, I’m really trying to take a Greek mythology course and a psychology course. There’s so many prerequisites for this psychology. “
As for her routine between takes, Nikki said, “I always try to stay productive and do things that I feel nourish the brain.”
“I produced a movie a few years ago that just came out with my best friend DJ Coles and things other than shopping and reading weeklies — not that you’re not lovely,” she continued.
Nikki is very excited to begin filming, but she didn’t have the script in her hands until last week!
“It looks really fantastic. I didn’t know how it was going to happen, how much they’d separate from the book, but it’s all there, it’s great. All the really comic moments that Jacob and I have together are all in there. And also, she [Rosalie] really is a sympathetic character in a sense. You get to really understand why she’s been the way she’s been.”
“And to see her interact with a child — if I do it the right way, let’s cross our fingers that I portray it accurately – it’s kind of a really intense bond that we have that I think is really relatable. I’m look forward to humanizing her a bit, if you know what I mean. Wink wink.”
As for the highly anticipated birth scene, Nikki shared, “It’s intense.”
“Once again, it’s going to be a whole other thing to see visually. We have the book and then the transition to the script.”
We can’t wait!
