Fans of the Twilight movies are hitting theaters to catch the latest installment Breaking Dawn Part 1. So how did the stars get into shape for their near naked honeymoon scenes?
Robert Pattinson who plays the vampire Edward admitted that he felt intimidated next to co-star Taylor Lautner’s ripped physique. He wanted to look good in his shirtless honeymoon scenes in Breaking Dawn so he eliminated candy and beer from his diet for a while. He also spoke candidly about his workouts with off screen girlfriend and movie co-star Kristen Stewart.
“Me and Kristen went nuts working out, because we hadn’t worked out for any of the previous films,” he said. Before the shirtless scenes in the movie, Pattinson made an effort to avoid empty calories and exercise more. The changes were only temporary though. Pattinson admits, “I had good abs for, like, two weeks. As soon as I didn’t have to be shirtless anymore, my good diet habits were gone immediately.”
Kristen Stewart is on a strict diet in preparation for Breaking Dawn, the fourth movie in the Twilight saga. According to the L.A. Times, she’s swapping veggie burgers for cheeseburgers, and also cutting out other greasy favorites. “I eat disgustingly normally,” she told People. “So, right now, I’m trying to not put so much butter in my food and stuff like that.”
“I want a cheeseburger so badly,” said Stewart. “But I have to be a vampire in a few weeks.” In the Twilight universe, vampires are known for their ethereal looks and willowy figures. Breaking Dawn director Bill Condon suggested that Stewart lose weight as part of her character’s transformation from mortal to undead. Production begins in November.
