Awkwardness or no awkwardness, the Twilight trio have a movie to promote, and last night Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner made their first joint appearance since The Event last summer on MTV First.
I’m no body language expert, but I’ve studied my fair share of tabloids, and I would say that the interview was just as goofy and awkward as appearances by the trio normally are. Pattinson and Stewart joked around with each other — and, because I know you’re wondering, both joked around with Lautner too. Poor Lautner. Stuck in the middle of it all.
The chat was strictly about Twilight, with the only real mention of their lives outside the phenomenon being when Pattinson and Stewart were asked about their Halloween costumes. Stewart went as Natalie Portman’s character from the film Closer, saying that she “loved that movie.” (I can’t imagine why…) Pattinson, next to her in photos that were shown, wore “a three-dollar mask from 7/11.”
Beyond that, it was full steam ahead on promoting Breaking Dawn. They talked about looking forward to Breaking Dawn: Part 2 and also reminisced on first auditions, catching up with special guest Stephenie Meyer and whether or not they’ve got another MTV Movie Award for Best Kiss in the bag. (Spoiler alert: Yes.)
