JUSTIN CHON CAN’T WAIT TO MEET HIS NEW CO-STARS
www.mtv.com: “The cast is so big now,” said Justin Chon, who plays “human” Eric Yorkie. “Seriously, it’s like an army. You really don’t get to meet everyone.
“The premiere is going to be wild; it’s gonna be a zoo,” he laughed, sounding for a minute like a super-fan. “I want to meet Michael Sheen!”
This week, we interviewed “Twilight” veteran Billy Burke, who also said he has yet to meet Sheen, Dakota Fanning or Bryce Dallas Howard and is eager to do so later this month at the Los Angeles premiere.
“Recently, I had met all the wolf pack, but I finally met Tin[sel Korey] and Bronson [Pelletier] maybe two weeks ago,” Chon said. “And I was like, ‘God, I feel like I already know you, but this is the first time I’m meeting you!’ That is so wild.
“I haven’t met [Dakota Fanning] either, because they’re Volturi and they shot a lot of their stuff in Italy,” said the 28-year-old actor. “I’m always in Forks.”
KSTEW: “I’M A REAL LIFE VAMPIRE”
www.news.popstar.com: Kristen Stewart opens up in a new interview about how her life is really no different than the vampires she runs alongside in The Twilight Saga. Using words like “sad and desolate,” the actress opens up in a raw interview, comparing her isolated life to her onscreen love with Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson). Also find out why Kristen wants to avoid movie star status like Angelina Jolie.
Comparing her fame to the life of a vampire, the actress says her life is “sad and desolate” similar to Edward Cullen in The Twilight Saga: New Moon (2009). Stewart also went on to tell Contact Music, “Edward is actually a really good parallel for fame. As a vampire he has a sad, desolate life and fame is the same.” The actress who must constantly hide in the shadows of her own life feels a strong connection with the isolated vampires in Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight Saga.

TRANSCRIPT OF MEXICO CITY INTERVIEW WITH KRISTEN AND TAYLOR
www.twilightpoinson.com: This videochat with fans was also a press conference. They wanted a press conference entirely made by fans, no media. It’s a little hard to make this transcript because the translator’s voice was in her way, and mind you, her translations were not very good. She translated some things incorrectly and Taylor and Kristen couldn’t understand her, so in some questions they just answered another thing completely.
“We’ve been here for 12 hrs but it’s been really good” Kristen says, and the questions begin.
Online Fan asks: “Who are you fans of?”
Taylor says he’s a big fan of Kristen. Kristen says she’s a big fan of Taylor. Audience goes “awwww”.
“What is it like to be a girl who loves a wolf? What is it like to play a wolf? What real life things do you use for this performances?” actors can’t understand the horribe translator, translator asks fan to reformulate her question, fan asks “what is it like to play a girl who related herself to vampires and wolves, and how has thing affect your life?”. Kristen says “To a certain extent it’s hard to play these characters. We were actors before making this movie. The fact that he’s a vampire defines pretty well the situation and the relationship (people Lol), and it’s easy to be in her shoes. There’s other interesting creatures and characters. But Jake is totally the best! (she tells directly to Taylor, they laugh awkwardly.
Taylor: “the series has impacted my life in a huge way, for instance, I’m in Mexico right now (audience cheers). He says he wouldn’t be where he is if it wasn’t for Twilight. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to visit you guys”.
Taylor: “Personally, I wasn’t a fan of books or reading. And I started reading Twilight and realized that the story was amazing.”
Kristen: “Yes, and characters were easy to relate to. In this production literally everyone was so immersed in reading the books, and obsessed. They didn’t just read the script.”
Taylor: “We’re also promoting the books”

NEW MOON STARS ANSWER FANS’ QUESTIONS
Jamie Campbell Bower
Q: Have you been able to meet Stephenie Meyer yet?
Campbell Bower: Yes, she’s fantastic. She’s really lovely. I got to meet with her a couple of days before we started filming and spoke to her about the characters and stuff.
Q: You and Nikki [Reed] are my favorite characters/couple. I loved how you played them in “Twilight.” Will we see a bit more of their relationship in “New Moon”?
Lutz: “New Moon” doesn’t really focus on the Cullen family enough. [Our screen time] is just like the kitchen scene in “Twilight,” with the family when Bella comes in with Edward. We try to gravitate towards our significant others as much as we can in the scenes that are allowed. With “New Moon,” there aren’t really too many scenes that we can show Emmett and Rosalie’s relationship.
Q: What is the last thing that you Googled?
Gathegi: What was the last thing that I Googled? [Laughs.] Kellan Lutz.
MTV: And what came up when you Googled Kellan Lutz?
Gathegi: Sexual white chocolate. [Laughs.] Onesies and M&M’s, that’s what came up. Bear Claws, Emmett Cullen — I could keep going.
