Twilight Author Reflects On The End
As the excitement builds amongst Twihards for the release of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn -- Part 1 tonight at midnight, author Stephenie Meyer reflects on the ending of her beloved series.
With The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn -- Part 1 hitting theaters tonight at midnight and Breaking Dawn Part 2 set to be released next year, author Stephenie Meyer is getting sentimental about the end of her ultra-successful series.
"It's interesting to be done and not done," Meyer told reporters at a recent press conference "There was that final night of shooting and yet it doesn't feel like the ending yet. I'm not sure what it's going to be like. I'm going to miss seeing the kids."
The notoriously shy author, whose Twilight books have sold over 100 million copies worldwide and have been translated into 37 languages, had shied away from promoting her first three movies. This time around, she came out of her shell to attend the world premiere of Breaking Dawn on Monday and even appears in the movie!
"I've been hiding out for a few years, which is fun," she admitted.
"I didn't want to be on camera and Bill (the director) was, 'Come on! It will be so great,'" she says of appearing in the wedding scene of Breaking Dawn. "When Kristen [Stewart] came down the first time she looked at me for a minute and it felt like a real wedding. It was awesome."
Meyer had a brief appearance in the first Twilight movie in a dinner scene, however she has become more involved in these last two movies and even has a producer credit on both Breaking Dawn movies.
What does Meyer think of the Twihard fans? She undoubtedly likes the fans, just not the name. "I don't really like 'Twihard.' It sounds awful," she tells E! News. She does, however, like the nickname "Robsten" that fans have given to Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart.
"I guess the Robsten's are really funny to me," she admitted. "You know, because they care so much about that relationship. It's just, I find it amusing."
