1. Pattinson talking about filming his honeymoon in Brazil through monsoon-like rains, which made getting into the mood tough: "It felt like having a honeymoon in England, playing board games instead of making love on the beach." (Via The Hollywood Reporter)

2. Pattinson on Stewart giving birth: "The birth scene is so different from everything else in the movie. For a fantasy series it goes quite far. It's hardcore, it's graphic. There's no other way to do it. It was fun," (via HitFix.com).

3. Stewart on the birth scene:  "She’s literally choking on blood she’s been drinking, literally out of her mind. It was always in my head that she’s been able to fight harder than anyone because of that little bit in her, literally. And at that part I got to play with having venom run through your veins and start to feel the hell that that is, and that’s after a moment of sheer exuberance of looking at your baby for the first time." (via iVillage)

4. Pattinson on playing Edward: "You never really get to play Edward in a way that he's literally so aware of his own helplessness. Either he's completely in control or pretends he is, but here there's no on else around, and there's nothing he can do and he's just desperate. Normally when that happens, Bella comes in and saves the day. But Bella isn't there ... he's totally annihilated by the situation" (via Moviefone)
