Kristen Stewart recently revealed that there were several near death moments for not only her character but her as well during the ‘New Moon’ filming. It wasn’t the stunts either that had Stewart so close. The film was extremely emotional for Stewart and had her experiencing a heightened version of reality.
“Like, she literally is going to die; she’s going to stop eating and be done,” Stewart tells MTV about Robert Pattinson’s character Edward leaving her character – Bella. “And the only thing that brings her out of it is this lightness [Jacob] brings.”
In ‘New Moon’ Jacob (played by Taylor Lautner) tries for Bella’s affections. However, Jacob doesn’t get the response from Bella that he’s looking for. “But probably, my favorite line in the book is when I have to say to [Jacob], ‘It’s him; it’s always been him!’ Like, I have to say that. Yeah, it killed me, it killed me.” Stewart explained.
“Just like everything in our movie, it’s such a heightened version of reality. It’s like, people don’t just break up – they break up and it literally kills you,” Stewart adds. “It’s not like you just say, ‘Oh, I’m really depressed and crying.’ Everything is supposed to be a fantasy version of that. So I always had a really hard time figuring out, ‘Am I doing enough? Do I look like I’m going to die?’ ”
