'Breaking Dawn' Director Bill Condon: Give Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart "Some Respect"
Entertainment Weekly released its Fall Movie Preview issue today, which wouldn't be complete without some massive ink (and the cover) dedicated to the final installment of the Twilight franchise, November's Breaking Dawn 2.
Oh, and, of course, the little, tiny cheating scandal actors Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart found themselves entangled in this summer got some major page space, too, with the magazine pumping director Bill Condon for some information on how K-Stew's public indiscretion with Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders may affect the movie if at all.
“The fact is, these are actors playing parts, and maybe it’s not such a bad thing that people be reminded of that,” he told EW. “Both of these actors gave heart and soul to the Twilight movies, not only during shooting, but also by navigating so graciously the whole life-in-a-fishbowl aspect of the phenomenon. Above all they have always shown great respect for the fans who made these movies such a success. Now it’s time that some of that respect be returned to them.”
The magazine released a few teasers earlier this week and last month of newly minted vampire Bella with daughter Renesmee, and as far as the promotions for the movie are concerned, Summit plans to plop both actors together for the massive press rounds they'll embark on this Fall.
"While it is studio policy not to comment on the personal lives of actors, Summit is moving full-steam ahead and looking forward to this November's opening of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2," the president of worldwide marketing for Summit, Nancy Kirkpatrick said.
In other autumn movie news, the magazine chats with the team behind Steven Spielberg's Lincoln where the director admits to calling star Daniel Day- Lewis "Mr. President" on set and Ben Affleck deadpans about his "really humiliating" 70s-era hair for drama Argo.
