The Breaking Dawn hair worked for me but don't go patting yourself on the back, Rob! Find someone in the fandom that doesn't love Edward's wind-blown, tousled, bronze locks in the books. And if you find them, I'll ignore them.
More on this below Mr. Sexy Smolder...
Los Angeles Times did a profile on Bill Condon and Rob had a couple of quotes in the article. Here's the excerpt:
To bring such heightened material to the screen, Condon said he looked to both Vincente Minnelli and Alfred Hitchcock, hewing to tradition for Bella and Edward's wedding and honeymoon, skewing more graphic when depicting Bella's pregnancy, which is destroying her from the inside out. Through a combination of prosthetics and CG, Condon transforms his dewy brunet into a gaunt, skeletal version of herself.*SPOILERS* regarding the sex scene after the cut!
"She needed to look like she's dying or the story doesn't make sense," Pattinson said. "It was great that he went there." (Tink: He SO went there. Shockingly so. It's perfect.)
Pattinson says he felt a kinship with Condon from the moment the director came to visit the 25-year-old actor while he was shooting the period love story "Water for Elephants" in Los Angeles.
"I had my hair cut really short, and he said, 'Oh, you should have your hair like this in the 'Twilight' movies.' I thought, 'OK, I already like you," Pattinson said with a laugh. (Tink: *scowl* I'm not even going to get all book-anal right now because Edward's BD hair was better than I thought it would be. It was sexy! HE was Mr. Sexy.)
"Especially since so many people worried about my hair. It was all they cared about. The hair and a six-pack." (Tink: Ok, Rob...I don't care one bit about the six-pack but the hair is a sensitive topic. That's why you keep cutting it and resisting the sex hair, isn't it? You like to torture us and you don't like trademarks. So stubborn. *pouts*)
Condon had a particularly unique approach to Bella and Edward's big love scene, which for fans is a culmination of years of repressed desire. Rather than do a straight-away shot of the young couple's first night in bed together, he opted to show the majority of the scene in flashback through Bella's memory of the encounter. (Tink: This was beautiful...)
"It's the reason I'm directing the movie," Condon said of the sequence. "To me the memory of first sex — savoring the smell, the taste and the touch was more interesting. And it plays with people's expectations. You don't get much in the beginning and [people may think], 'Oh, that was it?' To set up a disappointment and then give them more seemed like fun."
His decision seemed to go over well with the 7,000 people in the audience at the Nokia Theatre Monday night, where that soundtrack that Condon had been so carefully fine-tuning two months ago was often drowned out by the sounds of teen girls' screams. (Tink: *bitchface* I think I can count the number of teens around me on one hand. Sure that's exaggerated but you guys get the point.)
It was a moment Condon says he won't soon forget.
