- … And my all-time favorite picture I got that night…Ashely Greene the GORGEOUS Alice. Alice has always been my favorite character. I know, I know, I’m a huge Edward fan, but he’s my crush, she, to me is the most interesting character. And Ashely plays the part perfectly. This is her signing MY ticket. I told her she’s always been my fave, and she was very kind to look up and pose for this pic. She is seriously even MORE gorgeous in person than on film, or even than in this picture. I think she’s the most beautiful person I’ve ever met. Okay, maybe I have a girl crush on her too…just a little one.
- Ashley and Jackson posed together for the press. It was a really great moment, wish they had turned around!
- [Charlie Bewely] talked about how it’s always more fun to be the bad guy. He grabbed Ashely’s neck at one point, like he did in New Moon. And talked about how it was joining the cast post first movie.
- [Peter Facinelli] answered a question about what they (the actors) like about Twilight fans, and he simply said “Everything. We know when we are on set that we are making these films for you. We think about you all the time. If it weren’t for you we wouldn’t be here and we know that. We love, love, love our fans!” Then Ashely said “This has been the biggest crowd we’ve had so far, so thank you Salt Lake City!” That got a huge roar.
- [Jackson Rathbone] He did some banter with Ashely. He did also say that the one scene he wishes they had filmed was Jasper and Alice meeting. So he and Ashely kinda acted something out about them meeting. It was pretty funny (My camera had died by then, I was SO sad!)
- And of course the gorgeous Ashely! She answered one of the first questions, about what was hardest about being on set. And she said the getting up at 5 am for a 7 am casting call to go sit in hair and make-up for an hour and a half. All of them are there for a really long time, and most of them wear wigs, which takes even longer to place and get secure.
In this film there will be dancing at the wedding and I guess there’s a really cool flip lift that Jasper and Alice do that they were the ones doing, not their stunt doubles. So be sure to look for that!

REPORTS | INTERVIEWS:
The horror movies were right: Vampires do make women scream.
More than 1,000 fans of the “Twilight” movies, most of them women and girls, screamed in delight Friday night at The Rail Event Center in downtown Salt Lake City, as five of the movie series’ cast — four relatives of undead teen Edward Cullen, and one member of the ruling Volturi clan — blew kisses from the stage and took questions from nervous teens.
In a 25-minute question-and-answer session, actors Charlie Bewley, Peter Facinelli, Ashley Greene, Jackson Rathbone and Nikki Reed talked about what they like and don’t like about being a vampire, how they reacted when they learned they landed their roles, and whether vampires could beat werewolves in a fair fight.
Greene, who plays the clairvoyant Alice Cullen, said the worst thing about being a vampire was “two and a half hours in the make-up chair.”
Reed — who plays Alice’s sister, Rosalie Hale — agreed, adding that the actresses weren’t the only ones who suffered. “It sucks for the guys, too,” she said.
The good part about being a vampire, joked Facinelli, who plays the patriarch Dr. Carlisle Cullen, is that “you get to live forever. … 350 is the new 250, so I feel good about that.”
“You sparkle in the sun,” said Rathbone, who plays Alice’s husband, Jasper Hale. “It makes you feel like David Bowie.”
All five actors said their vampire characters would prevail over werewolves. “Werewolves are just big overgrown dogs, really,” Rathbone joked.
For the fans — some of whom braved a snowstorm the previous weekend to snag free tickets — the event was a chance to see the portrayers of their favorite characters in the flesh.
Sometimes the line between reality and fantasy blurred. Fans were as likely to yell, “We love you, Jasper” as “We love you, Jackson.” Rathbone happily acknowledged both his own name and his character’s.
The event was the last stop of a five-city, five-day publicity tour for “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, Part 1,” which opens nationwide Nov. 18.
“Salt Lake, you’re our biggest crowd so far,” Reed told the fans, who screamed at the news.
Reed even played with the crowd’s reactions. “What would happen if I said Robert Pattinson?” she asked, and the mention of “Twilight’s” star bloodsucker elicited more screams.
Before the actors took the stage, three musical acts with songs on the “Breaking Dawn” soundtrack — singers Matt Hales (aka Aqualung) and Lucy Schwartz, and the band Sleeping at Last — performed short sets of mood music.
Hales introduced one song, one he wrote for the movie and performed with Schwartz by saying, “We’d like you all to imagine you’re about to give your immortal soul to a very pale English person.”
The “Twilight” fans could imagine that, and again they screamed.
