On Halloween night they presented themselves outside the Beatrice Inn in the West Village, a speakeasy-turned-restaurant-turned-low-key bar with a tough door policy.
Last fall, Mr. Doyle returned to the same space on his 26th birthday. It had the same name but was now Graydon Carter’s third restaurant, in a ”soft opening” period. In the back helping him celebrate, Mr. Doyle said, were Sienna Miller, Rob Pattinson and Kristen Stewart, Paris and Nicky Hilton.
“Rob and Kristen basically hosted my dinner and invited like 40 people, intimate, and most of them were Beatrice regulars,” he said.
She exclusively told omg!: "Kristen and Rob are incredibly cool, they deal with things in quite an admirable way, I think.
"People forget how daunting that kind of attention can be ... I don’t know if [staying out of the limelight outside of films] helps or hinders them, it’s such a personal choice and there’s no right way or wrong way.
"What I love about them is that they tend not to comment on anyone else's private lives and that’s why people who work with them don’t comment on theirs."
And while there were fans queuing outside the set to see the pair during filming, MyAnna says their fame was never an issue on set - or even mentioned.
She said: "I can’t remember anyone talking about it ... it was never an issue on set, no one could get on set! You had to have special access – it was like Fort Knox.
"We had a few people queuing outside who had placards telling us that we were doing the ‘devils work’, so that was kind of interesting… but the majority of fans are just so lovely."
MyAnna joined the cast for the final two installments, and despite being a latecomer, she says there was never any separation between K-Stew, R-Pattz, Taylor and the rest of the cast - no matter how new you were.
She added: "There was no separation, everyone just got on, it's a really nice family. I think Bill Condon (the director) has a lot to do with that, he’s very inclusive ....
"He made it feel like we were all part of this ensemble and there wasn't really a bad egg there."
Weinberg agreed that the actors were not egotistical.
“When you walk into a big film like this with big stars like this, you wonder how they’re gonna be ... how they’ll respond to you,” he said. “It would be a disservice to mention only the Top 3 (Stewart, Pattinson and Lautner) because the rest of the main cast were also just genuinely nice. You hear other people talking ... about how everybody’s nice and all that, but on this movie, everybody really was. They were amazing people. For them to have so much success at such an early age and still be so grounded ... to me, it was amazing to see. It was an honor for me to meet all of them and work with them as human beings.”
Odom, a self-confessed “hopeless romantic,” says he believes the appeal of the “Twilight” series is its timeless romance element — and the chemistry between Stewart and Pattinson made it a hit on-screen.
“(The filmmakers) really got it right with Kristen and Rob as far as the casting went,” he said. “There’s been such an overlap of how iconic the characters are, but also how iconic Kristen and Rob are — both on their own. When together, it became bigger than anyone could’ve imagined.”
Without a doubt, fans just couldn’t get enough of that on-screen romance between Edward and Bella. But what about their off-screen one.
“It’s a movie within a movie, isn’t it,” Weinberg laughed. But, that’s as far as we could get. “You know, I tend to stay away from commenting on other people’s relationships,” he added. “You know, they’re both wonderful people, and I wish ‘em all the best.”
