Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart Talk Parenting and ‘Breaking Dawn’ in ‘Entertainment Weekly’

Robert Pattinson is revealing secrets of Breaking Dawn- Part 2 — and he says the flick is “stranger than all the other films put together.” His co-star  Kristen Stewart more than agrees.

“Let me tell you, this movie is so weird,” the 22-year-old actress tells Entertainment Weekly. “It. Is. Bizarre.”

There is at least one sweet element at the focus of the final Twilight installment: fans will see RPattz’s on-screen child, Renesmee, as played by 11-year-old Mackenzie Foy.

According to the film’s director Bill Condon, having Foy on-set prompted something “amazing” from both Pattinson and Stewart:

“It really brought something paternal out in Rob, and Kristen was especially protective,” Condon recalls. “I’d have to interrupt them when they were in deep conversation to get going with a scene.”

Stewart agrees that Foy helped her channel her inner-mama. “I loved chatting with Mackenzie,” she says. “I’m always curious about what’s going on in the minds of kids on set. She’s really close to the age I was when I started.”

Renesemee isn’t the only highly anticipated aspect of Breaking Dawn- Part 2 – fans will finally see Stewart as a vampire.

“That’s kind of the huge thing that fans are waiting for – to see the clumsy teenage Bella that Kristen did so well suddenly become this super-sexy vampire who’s athletic and graceful,” costar Taylor Lautner says. “She took it very seriously and pulls it off.”

Condon agrees:

I don’t think you can grasp how major an achievement it is till you see it. Her transformation from high school girl to fierce warrior is amazing. She’s a different species now.”

Pattinson, meanwhile, had more jokes than praise for his on- and off-screen girlfriend.

“Kristen complained about 500 times more than I have,” the 26-year-old said of the uncomfortable contact lenses that the “vampires” wear. “She condensed four years of complaining into a few months.”

But Pattinson may be stretching the truth – at least, according to Twilight star Jackson Rathbone. When Celebuzz recently talked to the actor, he said it was actually Pattinson who grumbled more than his better half. Watch the interview below:
