In case you missed our previous coverage, here’s video and complete transcripts of the Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, Taylor Lautner and The Cullen (Peter Facinelli, Liz Reaser, Nikki Reed, Jackson Rathbone and Ashley Greene) press conferences. There were moments where he threatened to just actually get the camera himself and film it. He always had a camera wrapped around his neck and he was documenting the whole process. It was a scene, towards the end of the film, in the midst of the big battle, and it was raining and cold.
I have so many people who have a lot of opinions on what I should be doing and that’s hard.
I find myself resisting a lot, but I think it comes across as being a rebel or cocky or arrogant.” Charlie Bewley: ”I’m constantly evolving as a person in everything — career, friends, geography, lifestyle, and relationships.
All of a sudden, I was thrown into this group of boys and, for me personally, I was a tomboy growing up, so it felt really familiar. Alex: I think the hardest scene is the scene she was talking about. What I like about it is that it has brought us to pop culture in a way that’s never been done before in film. I’ve been working for about 10 years, and Alex and Julia have also been around and working.
I have a younger brother, who’s about the same age as some of them, so there was something that resonated, initially. I had never read the books before, but I actually had a very good friend of mine tell me about this role of Leah Clearwater. We were running and it was raining and there was about a foot of water. And, the scene that they used, where we run up to Jacob, if you look at me, I’m in the back with a smirk on my face because they used that take, the moment after me slipping. What I like about it is that it’s finally brought us to a place where we’re not always playing with the leather and feather. It’s up to the media as well to accept us as other than being just the mystical figures and speaking with accent all the time. The kids are more accepting of us than anything else. Julia: What excites me is that we’re being put in front of children and people who are in the process of defining their ideas of what Native Americans are.Chaske: All over Native country, we’re getting feedback and they’re saying, “It’s about time.” We’ve got mad support from our people on the reservations. And, it’s also a little pressure because we have to be role models now. I was not there for very long, but that experience was so great because I was on set with Josh [Brolin], and with John Malkovich and Michael Fassbender, who is an incredible actor.It’s something that scares me as well because that’s a big load to take on. Chaske: Statistically, we’re not supposed to be here. She and our young son are killed, early on in the film, and that’s what motivates Jonah Hex. And, the timing was awesome too because I had come off of Eclipse and then I had done a play.During the press conference they all talked about what it’s like getting involved in the franchise, how they got cast, what making the film was really like and so much more. It was chaotic and physically demanding because you were freezing and wearing very little. That was the challenge, but after a certain point, you just enjoy yourself because really it doesn’t get better than that.Like we’ve done for the previous coverage, you can either watch the video of the press conference or read a transcript after the jump: Julia: You know, it happened really fast. You’re with a bunch of great people and in a gorgeous place, doing what you love.I just keep going and going until I’m happy with everything.” ”I think monogamy is really unnatural.I’m not saying I’m a whore, but I’ll definitely say…I don’t think being with one person — especially throughout your youth — is that good for someone.But, over the course of filming and some of the press that we’ve been doing, it’s like home. She said, “They’re going to make a movie out of it, and it’s you. And then, when I got the call for the audition, all I heard was, “You have an audition on Monday for Leah Clearwater in Twilight,” and I had this visceral reaction. My background is in dancing and I feel like I’m really good on my feet. You’ll be able to dig into the floor better and you’ll get more traction.” So, we had to cut the corner and everyone else did it great. I think that’s probably the most valuable aspect of the way that Native Americans are portrayed in this film. It’s not quite normalized to most people who grew up watching most Native movies, like Dances with Wolves, Geronimo and all of those.This is going to be your role.” That’s something you hear, and it just goes in one ear and out the other. My heart started beating really fast and I had to breathe. I told the rest of the cast, “All right, you guys, it’s slippery out there. I still feel a lot of adults and the media are trying to figure it out. Have you heard from any of the tribes and, in particular, the one on which this was based?Julia: It is so gratifying to hear from people who look up to you and see you in these places that they never thought they could ever dream to be. You really feel like you’re opening up people’s minds, who otherwise thought that they couldn’t dream big. We grew up on reservations and it’s a third-world country there. At the end of this experience, I was like, “This is what I want to do.There is a lot of poverty, a lot of alcoholism and lot of drug addiction. This is exactly the kind of thing, these are the kind of people, this is the type of set and this is the feeling that I want to have.” So, I had that in my mind, at this point when, all of a sudden, opportunities started coming as a result of Eclipse.
