Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner thrilled thousands of fans in Los Angeles on Monday night as they turned up for the premiere of their highly-anticipated new film, “The Twilight Saga: New Moon.”
“It’s so amazing,” Robert told Access Hollywood’s Shaun Robinson of the fan reaction at last night’s premiere, held at Mann Westwood.
When asked what his first reaction was when he stepped out of the car and onto the red carpet, the British actor revealed that nature took over.
“I kind of black out [for] like five minutes before. I’m not thinking anything. My brain is obviously releasing endorphins or something,” he laughed.
And co-star Kristen, who turned up in a floor length, strapless Oscar De La Renta gown, said she just wanted to go reach out to the masses.
“It’s crazy,” she said of the amount of fans who lined the streets at the premiere “I thought this was so cool because… I got to go talk to the fans.”
Taylor said 2008’s “Twilight” premiere was impressive, but “New Moon” took things to a different level.
“I was really surprised with this last year,” the 17-year-old, who donned a Calvin Klein collection suit for the event, said. “[That] premiere was crazy and this time, it’s times ten. It’s great.”
At the premiere, Shaun took the opportunity to show the cast a collection of dolls modeled after their “New Moon” characters, and Taylor in particular was shocked to see himself in plastic.
“Oh my!” he said. “That is so bad. Hide that thing right now! I do not want to see it. This is very embarrassing.”
But he quickly took a liking to little Jacob.
“This is fantastic,” Taylor said, cuddling the toy. “He’s just going to sit on my shoulder [during the interview].”
As for Robert, he had a very different reaction to his Edward doll.
“I have long hair?” he exclaimed after seeing the toy. “Who does that look like? It looks like an ‘80s pop star or something.”
