LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- “Twilight” stars Nikki Reed and Rachelle Lefevre paid a visit to Access Hollywood, where the stars dished on their male co-stars, who always cause the Twi-hard’s blood to boil.
“Quite frankly, I’m tired of being asked about Rob [Pattinson],” Nikki joked.
According to the British-born heartthrob’s co-stars, there is a side of the actor that the public rarely hears about – and it’s not his good looks or dreamy hair.
“He’s really talented, he’s really smart, he’s really musical, he’s an intellectual, he reads,” Nikki told Maria Menounos. “That’s the side that I wish people would [ask about.] I don’t know if anyone necessarily even knows him…that side of him.”
Rachelle agreed, saying Robert’s new superstar status hasn’t affected how any of his fellow “Twilight” co-stars treat him.
“We got to know him in a different environment,” she explained. “I don’t feel any differently about Rob than I do about the rest of the cast.”
Except for maybe Taylor Lautner, who they both admitted to being “in love” with – at least when it comes to his acting chops and career tenacity.
“Taylor’s my fave!” Nikki exclaimed when the topic turned to their co-star who worked hard – packing on pounds of new muscle – to reprise his role of werewolf Jacob Black.
“I already adopted him, back off!” Rachelle playfully snapped.
New ripped body aside, Taylor’s co-stars said they admire him for his drive and passion for the project.
“His commitment is unbelievable,” Rachelle told Maria.
“I would’ve ran away… I would’ve been terrified. He had to screen test again,” Nikki said of Taylor’s struggle to keep his role in “New Moon.”
“He’s such a man,” Rachelle noted. “He was so grounded, he had so much grace.”
And when it comes to reports of romances brewing between fellow “Twilight” cast members, Nikki and Rachelle said it’s all just gossip.
“We’re such a scandal-free, uninteresting cast,” Rachelle said.
“Which is pretty amazing because there are so many of us,” Nikki added.
“New Moon,” with newly cast co-star Dakota Fanning, is slated for a November 20, 2009 release date.
