And other things, too, but mostly the taint thing, because that was the most amusing part of the interview. Here’s Ashley discussing ‘Twilight’ and Kristen Stewart and everything else you just have to hear about to make it a perfect Monday evening.
Ashley on the funniest part of ‘Breaking Dawn: Part 2’:
“We secretly coordinated a dance-off during a scene! We were all in on it, but [director] Bill Condon didn’t know. [All the vampires] were supposed to charge at each other and destroy each other, but instead we just started dancing! Everyone did it—the Cullen clan and probably 20 vampire extras! It was such an amazing way to end it all.”
Wow. Yeah, not amazing at all. I’m thinking something more along the lines of “insufferably cheesy,” but hey. What do I know? I’m a lowly blogger, and not a titty-baring actress.
Ashley on her ex-boyfriends:
“I certainly have [been in love]. I can still love an ex as a person, regardless if the breakup was bad. I would never wish anything negative on them. It takes more energy to hate them than to wish them well.”
So she can love an ex as a person? Because guys, there’s this one ex I have that I definitely do not love as a person, because the whole point of ending the relationship was to rectify the fact that I somehow ended up with a person who was NOT a good person. And why would I want to love someone as a person if they sucked at it hard?
Anyway, moving on—Ashley on that taint thing:
“Hopefully it won’t taint [the movie] and people will still be able to enjoy it. I think a lot of people see us as our characters. I really want them to still be able to do that.”
Well. I guess we know that Ashley’s not nearly as friendly with Kristen outside of the ‘Twilight’ franchise as she is in it. But hey. We got to “hear” Ashley say “taint.” Isn’t that probably the most amusing thing she’s done anyway?
