15 days before the release of 'Breaking Dawn Part I', the 'Twilight Saga' trio leave imprints of their hands and feet outside Grauman's Chinese Theater during a Hollywood's Walk of Fame ceremony.
Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner have officially left their mark in Hollywood. On Thursday, November 3, the "Twilight Saga" trio cemented imprints of their hands and feet during a Hollywood's Walk of Fame ceremony held outside Grauman's Chinese Theatre.
On hand to introduce Rob, Kristen and Taylor were comedian Jimmy Kimmel and "Twilight" author Stephenie Meyer. While Jimmy joked, "Taylor will also be putting his abs in the cement," Stephenie delivered a few touching words about the three leading stars of the vampire movie series.
"I'm excited for them and I'm also very proud of them," Stephenie said. "Their lives have changed a lot in the last few years and they've done it with such class and an amazing ability to just stay balanced and stay who they are, which I think is a really rare and amazing talent. ... I'll never not be grateful for what they've done."
Afterward, the trio took the stage. Kristen, who wore nude halterline cocktail dress, said on the podium, "I've been so enamored by this business - Hollywood - I think this is the coolest thing I've ever done in my life. This is insane that I'm doing this and I think they should start talking now."
Stepping in next was Taylor who thanked fans for their support. "There are a few moments that mean so much it's really even hard to explain. And this is definitely one of those," he said before Rob, who donned an Armani suit, took over and joked, "I forgot how hot L.A. was, I shouldn't have worn a suit."
The actor famous for his portrayal of Edward Cullen in the film franchise continued on modestly, "Thank you guys so much, this is such an incredible honor. How young we are - it's kind of ridiculous and amazing at the same time."
Held 15 days before "The Twilight Saga's Breaking Dawn Part I" opens wide in theaters across the U.S. on November 18, the ceremony lasted around 15 minutes. The hand and footprints honor lands the trio among the likes of John Wayne, Fred Astaire, Elizabeth Taylor, Clint Eastwood, Meryl Streep and Jennifer Aniston.
Aside from screaming fans, all three actors have their family joining them at the event. Kristen's father John Stewart, Taylor's parents, Deb and Dan Lautner, as well as Rob's parents, Claire and Richard Pattinson, were all present.
