Gory birth scene in ‘Breaking Dawn’ was funny to film, say ‘Twilight’ stars
London: ‘Twilight’ stars have admitted that the birth scene in ‘Breaking Dawn’, which may have been a gory moment for fans to watch, was full of laughter while it was being filmed.
Ahead of the release of ‘Breaking Dawn: Part One’ on DVD, bloopers from the film have been released showing the stars of the film finding it difficult to keep a straight face. The video begins with Robert Pattinson, who plays vampire Edward Cullen, biting his onscreen wife Bella’s arm as he attempts to turn her. However, as soon as the British actor pulls away from Kristen Stewart’s limb, he is seen spurting fake blood from his mouth and laughing. This wasn’t the only part of the scene that made the cast giggle.
In probably the most tense part of the film, where fans are unsure whether Bella will survive the ordeal, Taylor Lautner, who plays werewolf Jacob Black, found it very difficult to stay serious.
“Sometimes it was hard to keep a straight face,” a leading daily has quoted him as saying.
“There was one point where she stops breathing and she’s out of it and I have to give her CPR. There was some moments during that where we just couldn’t keep straight faces because she’s just like dead. Her lips are closed and suddenly I’ve gotta wrap my whole mouth around her lips and give her CPR. It ended up working but it was funny at moments,” he added.
