“Rob and Kristen are actually a couple in real life” ~Breaking Dawn Set Designer Richard Sherman

I was loving the idea that Architectural Digest wrote a feature about the set design of Breaking Dawn. It’s not a long piece but it still took me a bit of time to get to the second page.

Good thing I did so I didn’t miss this epic quote about Rob and Kristen!

AD: What was it like on the set?

RS: Everyone had a good time. The three main actors are all very fun to work with. Kristen is quite serious. Rob and Taylor are a little bit wild. Rob and Kristen are actually a couple in real life. When he’s with her, he’s a little more restrained. When she’s not around, like most guys when their wives or girlfriends aren’t around, he’s a little looser. Taylor’s a kid—he’s 19—so he was bouncing all over the place.

 

The rest of the article is worth reading too.

Production designer Richard Sherman chats with AD about the sets for the fourth movie in the vampire series, starring Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, and Taylor Lautner—with a cameo appearance by a house featured in our January 2011 issue

I love the discussion of how the production designer combined elements from the house in Brazil, sets constructed in Louisiana and special effects.

A fun bit:

ARCHITECTURAL DIGEST: How did you choose the Bernardes + Jacobsen house for Edward and Bella’s Brazilian honeymoon?

RICHARD SHERMAN: We looked at pictures and found a house we loved. But two days later we learned it was going to be blown up because it had been built illegally. The next morning I got on a plane to Brazil, hopped on a boat, and went through countless islands along the coastline south of Rio. It took us four weeks to finally find the Bernardes + Jacobsen house, which had a tropical modern interior and was located near Paraty on the coast that we liked.

 

“I have become a total Kristen Stewart partisan. Like, I support her.”

This post on The Awl about Breaking Dawn had me cracking up when I wasn’t nodding in agreement. A few of my favorite lines:

Mary: It was a super elegant dress. The lace panel in the back with hundreds of covered satin buttons.

Natasha: The lace panel almost down to her flat ass killed me! I want a back that long : (

Mary: It was coccyx cleavage.

Rob and Kristen, dancing around a room

From @EW

I was rehearsing with Rob and we were sort of dancing around this room, trying to do this scene,”  Stewart tells EW. “I put on Iron & Wine’s ‘Flightless  Bird, American Mouth’ and I just became instantly emotional. Rob couldn’t handle it — it got weird! But I was like, ‘oooh, this is perfect.’”

Wish I could see this bit of rehearsal magic.

The @nytimes asks: What Will Bella Wear?

I’m going to do my very best to avoid the big remaining spoiler that is Bella’s wedding dress. My plan is to see Breaking Dawn on November 18 in the afternoon which means I’ll need to stay away from Twitter once the midnight showings begin.
