Kristen Stewart: Bella and Edward's Wedding Was My First

Kristin Stewart on Breaking Dawn's Wedding

She’s joked about the tight security surrounding the filming of the much buzzed-about wedding scene in Breaking Dawn Part 1, but Kristen Stewart says being a part of the actual experience was more dramatic (and fun!) than she expected. “This was my first wedding. It was insane. And odd,” she tells W magazine. “The wedding dress experience was a huge deal. I tried on one version of the dress, and it was like tweak and tweak and alter and tweak and change, and then it’s done,” she explains of the Carolina Herrera creation she wears. “Huge deal.”

But choosing the wedding dress wasn’t the only major life experience she tackled while filming the series. “For me, it was ridiculously dramatic,” she says of the Breaking Dawn movies themselves. “I get married, give birth, the baby has an incredibly accelerated growth rate we’re all very concerned about, and I say goodbye to my dad for the last time ever. It was all big — I could never go, Whew, I’m losing this character.”

And that also meant she had trouble saying goodbye to Bella in the end. “I’d been anticipating that end-of-Bella moment. I was going, Oh, my God — I wonder how I’m going to feel,” she recalls. But it didn’t truly hit her until the very end, after the wedding was just a memory.

“We needed to film one more sort of honeymoon scene and we went to the Virgin Islands,” she says. “After that scene, my true final scene, I felt like I could shoot up into the night sky and every pore of my body would shoot light. I felt lighter than I’ve ever felt in my life.” Tomorrow, Aug. 13, is Bella and Edward’s wedding day! Are you getting married then, too?

Jennifer on

I don’t think she’s giving away much. 75% of the people who go see the movie already knows what’s going to happen.

Rob on

She’s gorgeous!! The interview depicts how normal and sweet & lovingly awkward she is. ( in a very good way…]
i cant wait to see this movie!

Sarah on

Her talking about how she felt after filming was truely finished, sounds like she was/is glad to be done with the character. Would like to know what she really means by her comment.

Bon on

Lauren…thanks for the giggle…your reply to Dawn was classic!! Bravo for common sense!

Anne on

What details are you referring to? We all know what happens if you’ve read the books

Heidi on

Can’t wait for the movie!!!! Read all the books and own all the movies so far. I love escaping into all the fantasy. Everyday life is hard and exhausting at times…that’s why movies are so much fun. They let you escape for awhile:) Escaping with some beautiful scenery and actors is always fun:)

Catherine on

Not really excited to see this movie at all!

Krista on

Love the books, but hate the movies. The acting is just bad! As nice as it is to look at RPatz, he isnt very good in these movies. That being said, I’m still looking forward to watching the last two!
