Kristen Stewart: The ‘New Moon’ Breakup “Kills You”

By: Betsy Waldman / August 26, 2009

In a new interview with MTV, Kristen Stewart dishes on the intense acting that fans will get to see in the second Twilight flick, New Moon, when it hits theatres in November.

On the toughest scene to shoot: “New Moon” is riddled with all of that. I think it’s the one book in the series that I was intimidated by — in a good way. That’s the best feeling to start a movie with. But probably, my favorite line in the book is when I have to say to [Jacob], ‘It’s him; it’s always been him!’ Like, I have to say that. Yeah, it killed me, it killed me.”

On the difference between Taylor’s relationship with her character: “It’s such a different relationship; it’s like entirely original.”

On the breakup scene: “Yeah, and just like everything in our movie, it’s such a heightened version of reality. It’s like, people don’t just break up [in the "Twilight" films] — they break up and it literally kills you. It’s not like you just say, “Oh, I’m really depressed and crying.” Everything is supposed to be a fantasy version of that. So I always had a really hard time figuring out, “Am I doing enough? Do I look like I’m going to die?”
