The Cullen Family Cast Talk About Experiences on 'Twilight'

Peter Facinelli, Jackson Rathbone, Nikki Reed, Kellan Lutz, Ashley Greene and Elizabeth Reaser discuss about their physical transformations, bloopers, embarrassing moments and many else in 'Twilight'.

Counting down to the release of "Twilight" that is less than two days away, MTV has posted a written interview with some of the vampire drama's cast ensemble. In the interview which reportedly took place at two different occasions, the actors who act as members of the Cullen family in the film, Peter Facinelli, Jackson Rathbone, Nikki Reed, Kellan Lutz, Ashley Greene and Elizabeth Reaser, sat down to talk about their experiences during the filming.

Discussing about what they have to go through for their portrayal of the vampire family, Facinelli recalled, "We did, like, a week of testing all the different kinds of makeup. The makeup team was phenomenal, and the actors were very patient...The makeup was part of the transformation. For me, it was 'blond in a bottle.' That took a good day at the salon." He then added, "...some of us had to go back to the salon more than others."

"With the touch-ups, with the roots, it was a lot of high maintenance, but it was a fun transformation. It was fun to see myself looking so differently with the contact lenses, with the light skin. I remember getting washed up at the end of the night and someone had seen me, and they didn't know I had just played Dr. Cullen all day long, and they were like, 'That was you?' So that was fun."

Beside the transformation, Facinelli also gushed about Robert Pattinson's embarrassing moments. "You'll have to ask Rob about embarrassing moments," he said. "His baseball stuff was embarrassing. [Laughs.] He had never played baseball, so it was very awkward for him to squat. It was basically fun yet painful to watch him go through that. But he finally got it, and he looked great at it. To his credit, he had a week to learn to play the game."

On the other hand, Reed told the story about one particular incident during the filming when Ashley Greene hit a cameraman with a baseball. She also revealed that all of the actors who portray the Cullen family have been signed for three "Twilight" movies, since when they make the deal, the fourth book hasn't come out yet. The complete interview can be read at MTV.

Putting together Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson as unlikely lovers, Bella and Edward, "Twilight" is adapted from Stephenie Meyer's bestselling novel of the same name. It revolves around seventeen-year-old Bella, her mysterious vampire classmate, Edward, and their 'breaking barrier' romance. Directed by Catherine Hardwicke, it will blast off in the U.S. big screen on November 21.
