Put away the garlic and holy water. These wicked-hot guys may play vampires, but we promise they won`t bite.
It`s 5P.M., and Taylor Lautner is the first to arrive at the Venice, California, studio for out CosmoGirl shoot. A few minutes later, his twilight costar Kellan Lutz walks in. The guys high-five and joke about how Robert Pattinson- their other costar- is always late. By 6:30, I`m getting alittle impatient because we`re still waiting for out lead vampite. Finally, Robert tiptoes in, sleepy-eyed and full of apologies. "Sorry, I overslept," he explains in his sexy British accent. He`s so charming that my aggravation immediately vanishes. I totally see why Kristen Stewart`s character, Bella, would want to spend eternity with this guy, vampire or not. As the three actors change into jeans and white shirts, every girl on set finds an excuse to sneak into the dressing room, hoping to get a peek. Then- as if on cue, just around twilight- Rob, Kellan, and Taylor emerge. Check out what we chatted about during the shoot. Q: So how would you describe your three characters? Robert: [My character] Edward is the conflicted and reluctant vampire. He`s a poet, and very deep and profound. He`s just extraordinarily troubled. Kellan: Emmet`s the tough guy, the protector, but he`s a big old teddy bear to his little brother. He`s a goofball, but when he snaps, he`s menacing and there`s no stopping him. Taylor: Well, in the firts film Jacob is a normal high school guy- outgoing, friendly, and loyal. I`m a lot like him in the sequels as his character evolves. Q:Are you at all similar to your characters? Kellan: Rob is definitely Edward. He is so complicated, so poetic... I mean, you cannot help but like this guy! I`d say I`m definitely the protector type. I have six broters and one sister, and I got beaten up a lot because I was in the middle. But then I learned to defend myself. Robert: Yeah, Kellan protects me all the time. He`s like having a globe around me. Really, he`s like a globe of protection! Q:Twilight isn`t just a "vampire movie". It`s a love story. Do you guys like romantic films? Taylor: I really liked Enchanted. In fact, I`ve seen it about five or six times. Kellan: I like the Notebook, Tristan & Isolde, and Romoeo+Juliet. [I enjoy] period pieces that aren`t just about winning the girl but are also about the struggle of class, wealth, and privilege. Q:What about horror movies? Taylor: My friends just introduced me to how great they can be. I really liked hte Hitcher, and Gothika gave me nightmares. Robert: I don`t like that "hiding behind the doors" element when suddenly it`s, "Boo!" I like the more eerie and disturbing horror flicks. One of my favorites is The Exorcist. Kellan: I love scary movies. I think the pure gore movies are pretty funny. It dosn`t bother me to see someone get their head chopped off. Q: Twilight`s tagline is: "When you can live forever, what do you live for?" Would you want to live for eternity? Rober: Uh, yes, I thnik so, especially is I could turn it on and off. I kind of like the idea that I could see what death is like and then come back again. That sounds good to me. I want to have my cake and eat it too. Kellan: I can`t wait for the afterlife, to spend eternity wherever it might be. But it would also be cool to live for hundreds of years and get to see how the world turns out. If I could stay 23 years old for 500 hundred years, I`d probably take the deal. (On the right side of the page:) Robert: I never felt I wa smaking a 'vampire movie,' even when we were ripping each other`s heads off. Taylor: I hadn`t heard of the Twilight books before doing the movie. Now see girls everywhere reading them. The series is huge! Kellan: I loved vampires growing up. I dressed up as one for Halloween three years in a row.
