Entertainment Weekly is making us salivate over new Breaking Dawn images and interviews in the latest issue that hits newsstands tomorrow.
But if you're like us and can't wait even 24 hours, we'll give you a sneak peek of what's inside the mag. We'll tell you why Kristen Stewart wanted to "puke up blood" after her birthing scene and reveal which stars (yes, plural, E.W. is giving us two different options) made the cover...
Duh, the cover prize goes to Kristen and Robert Pattinson, who are gently touching foreheads and looking more in love than ever, and Taylor Lautner, who gives us a deep stare and hints of his totally ripped biceps.
Inside the mag, Twi-hards will be delighted to find pics of Robsten nearly undressed and embracing under a waterfall, Lautner running in the rain and various castmembers showing us some skin.
For fans who have waited eons to watch the wedding and birthing scenes in Breaking Dawn, Stewart reveals to the mag, "It was one of the coolest things that I've done."
But, K.Stew also says she wished the movie, which had to keep a PG-13 rating, would have been as gory and graphic as the novel.
"The birth is really effective, and I've heard it really hits you in the face. But what it could have been? It could have been shocking and grotesque, because that's how it was written in the book," says K.Stew. "I would have loved to have been puking up blood."
But one scene Kristen thinks they got just right? The honeymoon, which she tells the mag, "feels like a real love scene, not necessarily vampire-y, which is good."
"We shot everything—whether it's the lovemaking or the childbirth—as potent and powerful as it can be," says director Bill Condon.
Condon also discussed his impressions when first meeting the film's stars.
"Rob was the biggest surprise to me—just getting to know him," says Condon, who also notes that Pattinson is the least like the character he plays. "You spend time with him and you think, 'God, I hope you get to play this incredibly smart, funny guy that you are.' Taylor is just a complete natural, a born entertainer. And Kristen, she's just hugely talented. I think she's one of those people who will not fit into some kind of niche, but mold a career around who she is."
And Kristen, too, felt good about her collaboration with Condon: "I really am so satisfied with the entire experience this time around," she says. "I really feel like we went through something, and it was captured. Who the f--k knows how it will turn out, but that's how it felt. We ended on such a high note, and that was the whole point of this one—to reach a state of exuberance."
Perhaps K.Stew's exuberance has to do with the fact that her onscreen romance with Pattinson has fully blossomed in her real life as well?
R.Pattz hints at their relationship, dishing to the mag, "Having to spend so much time with people...It's just nice when you like them. There is a real bond."
Uh, we'd say a "bond" between these two is a little bit of an understatement!
Thanks E.W. for the pics and interviews, but we're ready to get to the real show, it's officially time to start the countdown until Nov. 18!
