One of the most hyped and anticipated moments of the year, with fans camping for days to see their idols, was the world premiere of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1 in Los Angeles Monday evening.
The excitement is even greater when fans see their favorite on-screen couple as a real-life pair on the red carpet. Certainly, Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson didn’t disappoint their thrilled fans as they made a stunning arrival for the event.
Kristen, 24, and Robert, 25, arrived together (just as it was expected) at the Nokia Theatre LA.
The real-life couple who play lovers Edward Cullen and Bella Swan in the film, posed for the cameras with their arms wrapped tightly around one another.
Unfortunately, they had to part as they gave autographs and posed for snaps with their adoring admirers.
Meanwhile, one of the other film’s female leads, Ashley Greene, drew gasps from the crowd by stepping onto the ‘black carpet.’ The actress, who plays Alice Cullen was wearing a strapless red tulle confection, keeping with the apparent ‘blood’ theme.
In an interview this week, Greene revealed that she will always share a special bond with her Twilight co-stars, reports Daily Mail.
‘I think just the relationships that were formed. The bonds that were formed is something that I wouldn’t give up. Twilight is ending, but at least I know those bonds are still going to be there.’
She added that another high point was the connection that the films had with the fans.
‘There’s this feeling that you get when you walk out onto a carpet, especially at fan events, and just seeing the way that you affect these people and how passionate they are about something that I’m so passionate about,’ she said.
Taylor Lautner was another Twilight star that left the crowd in awes.
The fourth installment of the romance fantasy film tells kind of another love story, since Pattinson’s much-adored character Edward Cullen marries his long-term love Bella Swan, played by Kristen Stewart.
In the early released shots from the film, Edward is seen awaiting his lovely bride as she walks down the aisle. The couple’s friends line each side of the aisle, looking back to see the bride’s address.
However, the pair’s happiness is short-lived when Bella unexpectedly becomes pregnant with a half-vampire half-human daughter who prefers sucking on her blood to drinking warm milk.
The rest of the two films see Bella fighting a lethal battle with her beastly unborn child that grows rapidly inside her, feeding off her blood which eventually sees Bella on her death bed.
This forces Edward to make the life-changing decision to either lose the human Bella he loves forever or to finally give into her dying wish and give her the eternal life she has been asking for.
