When it comes to the Twilight love triangle in Eclipse, Robert Pattinson says Bella and Jacob’s relationship is easier, but Kristen Stewart argues that conflict between Bella and Edward is what she loves most!
“Their relationship is so much easier, Bella and Jacob, because he’s just a normal kid,” Rob told MTV News. “Edward’s got to remember, or learn, how to be a normal 17-year-old, because he’s never bothered.”
“[T]he whole thing is him having to accept the consequences of [being with Bella], which means catching up to the same pace of every other 17-year-old in the contemporary world, emotionally and intellectually and everything, and realizing he’s quite a long way behind,” he added.
While Rob thinks the love triangle is definitely complicated, that’s what Kristen loves about it!
“I feel like she goes through so many traumatic events, and when she gets to the end of them, she feels a little bit more righteous than she did before,” Kristen told MTV News. “A little bit more knowing and sort of like, ‘I’ve lived. Take my word for it. I know what I want.’ And nobody ever puts any stock in what she’s saying.”
“Bella’s just sort of the dumb young girl who doesn’t know what it’s like to be a vampire, and it’s not about that for her,” she added. “This whole vampire thing is going to be hard, but she’s a strong girl and she can make sacrifices.”
“What I like about Eclipse is that … she really, actually looks at someone else, and it shatters her ideals,” Kristen explained.
“The love triangle is real,” she added. “In [Eclipse], she is just older and a little bit more [wise]. Now you really believe her. It took awhile for her to know herself well enough to make a decision.”
