‘Twilight’ May Look Sexy On-Screen, But The Only Action On-Set Involved ‘Runny Noses’ And ‘Hail Globs’
As we noted last week, the highly anticipated Twilight franchise appears to be far steamier and sexier than the books’ tween fans may have expected. And a profile on the film in yesterday’s LAT suggests the series’ author Stephenie Meyer may be just as surprised. Described by the article’s author as “chaste,” the Mormon mother of three sounds like the near opposite of director and “troubled-teen expert” Catherine Hardwicke. But as the article reveals, no matter how hot and bothered we felt after watching the teaser trailer, the actual action on set wasn’t putting any of its gorgeous cast members in the mood:
Slathered in pale vampire makeup with alternating doses of sun, rain and “hail globs the size of golf balls,” actors huddle in a heated ‘fire tent’ and stuff Kleenex to their cold, runny noses; they exchange rubber boots for Adidas just before the cameras roll.
