‘Twilight’: Kristen Stewart Reveals This Memorable Line of Dialogue Is Completely Improvised
Given that there are five movies in The Twilight Saga: Twilight, New Moon, Eclipse, Breaking Dawn – Part 1, and Breaking Dawn – Part 2, there are plenty of memorable moments for fans to enjoy. But as much as viewers love the action that the films provide, they are often enamored by the dialogue as well. While the screenwriters for the films and Stephenie Meyer (who authored the books) mostly take credit for the dialogue, the talented cast occasionally contributed some gems as well.
Most movie lovers know that there’s typically a ton of footage that gets shot that ultimately gets left out of the final cut of the film. Twilight was certainly no exception. In an interview with Collider, Kristen Stewart, who played Bella Swan in the movies, revealed that there was an improvised scene that she shot that died on the cutting room floor.
Kristen Stewart revealed she filmed some improvised scenes for ‘Twilight’
“Well, yeah, one thing stuck out,’ Stewart revealed when asked if there was a scene that she recalled being cut out of Twilight. “But it was improvisational and maybe really didn’t fit in. It was a scene where we’re just walking and talking and doing nothing. I think that they thought it was outside of our characters which I completely and entirely disagree with, but I’m sad to see that go.”
But, even though the full improvised scene didn’t find its way into Twilight, Stewart revealed that there are a few lines of improvised dialogue that made the cut. “Some of the lines in the movie are improvised which I thought were all going to be cut because they would say, ‘Okay, we’re just going to roll MOS and so just ramble off and we’re not going to use any of it.’ But they actually rolled and some of it is in the movie and that I’m really excited to see.”
Which fan-favorite line of dialogue was completely ad-libbed?
One improvised line that fans will remember comes when Edward climbs Bella up a tree and is showing her the view from the top. Mesmerized, Bella marvels about how the experience feels otherworldly to her. “The one thing was, and this was a tough day too, when we were in the tree and he takes me up and is showing me the most beautiful view, his favorite view,” Stewart shared, reflecting on filming Twilight. “It sounds so stupid to quote myself in the movie, but I remember the lines. I’m not going to pretend like I don’t remember the lines. I say, ‘This kind of stuff doesn’t exist.’ Then he’s like, ‘It does in my world.’ That’s all Rob.”
It seems that Robert Pattinson and Stewart contributed more than just their acting chops to the Twilight movies. We are sure fans are keen on knowing if any of their other ad-libbed moments found their way into the later movies. But, whether they did or didn’t, it is clear that collaboration was encouraged on the set of Twilight.
