The buff actor, 26, had a front row seat with all the other Cullens, and he’s bubbling over with excitement.
“I’ve been waiting for it,” he tells me during the DKNY Sunglass Soiree at The Beach at Dream Downtown in NYC. “I read all the books. What I get the biggest kick out of is knowing what the fans are really going to love, so when we shoot a scene like that, like the marriage and the arm-wrestling scene for Kristen [Stewart] and I, I just love when you bring this idea in your head – ‘cause you envision how the scene is going to be shot – and then it comes to reality, and you’re really in the moment and you feel alive and interjected with it. And then you step back, and you’re like ‘the fans are really going to like this. They’re *really* going to like this.’”
He adds, “It was cold as heck that day, but it was beautiful. It really was. It was really special seeing Stephenie Meyer in the back, crying, because this is such an important scene in the movie, the book and the series, and in all the fans lives for them to see it.”
Hm, what was so beautiful about it?
“It’s a wedding, and these forbidden loves finally become one. The lion and the lamb becoming one, which is truly special. I’m all for marriage. My brother got married – I got teary-eyed at that. I think it’s special. I can’t wait to hear the music that’s going to be laid behind it. I think everyone’s going to love it.”
