Q: In "New Moon," Rosalie is the one who tells Edward that Bella has died. Do you think that Edward had a right to know, or do you personally think it was none of her business to tell him?
Reed: I am always going to come to Rosalie's defense and say that she wasn't just trying to hurt him. I mean, he is her brother and she does love him. She felt bad for how she has treated their entire relationship, and maybe it was her way of taking the initiative and wanting to be the one to break the news to him. She wasn't lying to him; this is what Alice thought and what she told Rosalie. So Rosalie felt the need to break the news to Edward.
Q: What is the one question that you hope you never get asked again in an interview?
Lutz: Do I wear boxers or briefs? I think it's such a funny one, and there's always someone — and they're usually older than 50 — who asks that question.
Q: What is the one question you wish were asked more often?
Lutz: Well, I'm really into charity work and telling people about that. It's always hard to get to that answer [during an interview]. Talking about the charities that I'm involved in, helping families and kids, is really something that I'm involved in and really near to my heart. Just showing love to molested kids and giving them a birthday and telling them that God loves you and it's OK to have fun and smile, to give them a stuffed animal and watch them be happy. I wish I could talk more about the charities that I'm involved in and that we have so much opportunity in the end to make a difference out there.
Q: Have you bought anything exciting with your "Twilight" earnings?
Gathegi: I bought a plane ticket home to see Mom. That's exciting!
Q: What does Mom think of "Twilight"?
Gathegi: Oh, she loves it! But Mom is not the perfect gauge, because she's Mom. My mom is very deeply religious, but she loves "Gone Baby Gone." I'm throwing F-bombs everywhere [in that movie]; I'm killing people. And she's like, "That's brilliant!" But I live beneath my means, because that's important. As an actor, you never know what is going to happen. You don't know when your next job is going to come. I mean, I'm doing all right now, but after "New Moon," I don't know. So you have got to prepare. It's an unsteady lifestyle, and you have to be smart about the money that you make. You might need it later on down the line.
Do you hear that song playing in the background?!

Nikki Reed: The biggest difference? Well, I know the similarities — it's an ongoing love story. I guess the action increases and the excitement and visual stimulation. But I think "New Moon" really revolves around this intense love triangle, and with "Eclipse," it's more heightened.
MTV: What's your favorite scene in "New Moon"?
Reed: Anything that Taylor Lautner is in. Seriously, the kid is — he's not a kid, he's a young man — but he's incredible. And I'm not saying that because he takes his shirt off in every scene. [Laughs.] Seriously, you forget that he's half-naked in every scene, because he is so incredible. He makes this film amazing.
MTV: Tell us about your favorite new character to join the franchise, who wasn't in the original film.
Reed: All of the wolves. They bring a very obvious warmth. To see people actually interacting and wrestling and touching each other and rolling around in the mud and being a bunch of boys? That was a nice addition. Because the vampires are all very ... cold. It sounds super cliché, but there was a lot of interaction, a lot of human interaction [in "New Moon"]. It was nice.
Here is a little of what she learned while there:
There were themes (musical) created for for each character. IE one for Bella, one for Bella and Edward, one for Jacob
To reflect the confusion in Bella’s mind after Edward leaves, at times the “Edward” and “Jacob” themes are “blurred” together to help created “subliminal confusion” in her mind
Jacob’s “theme” features electric guitar. Alexandre used a guitar that sounded very similar to an Indian sitar and Chris jokingly reminded him that Jacob is Native (Indian) American not Indian from India
The score will not featuring any of Carter Burwell’s score. (I’ll expound more on this decision in a later post)
And the most important info: Chris wore a lot of olive and tan. He was in full on DILF mode with cargo pants, striped socks (i love a good sock!), some sort of olive sweater and a leather man purse. Work it Chris, WORK IT!
She has so much more info and deets on meeting Chris, so PLEASE go to Letters To Twilight and read her whole account.
Billboard has a great, LONG article on the New Moon Soundtrack (read the whole thing here). Here are some of my favorite parts from Billboard's write up:
...Each song is exclusive to the soundtrack, as-yet-unreleased, and most were written specifically for the movie, remixed or given new lyrics to fit the film's themes. "I was very inspired by the John Hughes movies of the '80s, which made me listen to indie rock bands that probably weren't meant for 13-year-olds: Yello, the Psychedelic Furs, New Order," says music supervisor Alexandra Patsavas, who also produced the album, as she did for the soundtrack to "Twilight." "Hopefully we can create a similar moment in time for 2009 teenagers."
As for the film itself, there's more music in it than "Twilight"; it features roughly 20 cues, Weitz says. "The movie has a lot of spots for music and a lot of spots for score, and we're trying to ride a very delicate balance and not make it wall-to-wall carpeting," he says. "I think there is a threat to modern film in that there's not enough silence. And so it's very rare you actually get to hear the entire song played out." The one song that does play in full during the film, he says, is Yorke's "Hearing Damage," which underscores a fight scene.
So to address the question fluttering in a million teenage girl hearts: Why does Pattinson not make an appearance on the second soundtrack?
The answer: He didn't want to. (Sorry, girls.) "We asked if Rob wanted to do it, but his music is kind of his private stuff in a way-as opposed to this huge public dazzle on him on the moment," Katz says. "We wanted to respect that. If he comes to us on the third one and he wants to do something, then we would obviously be delighted."
Here's to hoping Rob contributes to the Eclipse Soundtrack! *raises glass*
Have you heard anything about this before?
Let me know what you think!

So, are you going?
"New Moon" trailers have established fairly clearly the basic premise of the film: Edward leaves Bella. Bella is sad. Jacob helps Bella feel better.
For anyone familiar with "Twilight," they know the central love story surrounds the human Bella Swan and the vampire Edward Cullen. It is the onscreen interaction between stars Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson that fans are paying their good money to see — to the point, Bella's aural hallucinations in the novel have become visual onscreen, so that the two can have more screen time.
So fans were a bit concerned when they saw what looked to be a kiss between Bella and Taylor Lautner's Jacob Black in the second theatrical trailer. As a quick spoiler, in the novel Bella and Jacob do have an almost-kiss, but it is interrupted.
We asked director Chris Weitz if he fudged the book a bit to sneak in a full kiss between the most present "New Moon" stars.
"I can assure you we're staying very, very close [to the book]," Weitz said. "No one will feel that I have betrayed Edward and Bella's relationship."
