Could you tell us about the new Twilight movie, New Moon?
It was fun for me because it was a little more in-depth for Aliceâ€™s character. Itâ€™s more about the angst part of it than the love story as far as Edward and Bella. Edward leaves Bella, so she kind of falls into a depression and gets close to Jacob, and discovers a couple more crazy things about the town. We had a blast filming. We got to go to Italy, which was amazing. It was a couple of us who got to go to Italy, and I was included. It was coming back to the people we got really close to in the movie before so it was like a little reunion. And Chris Weitz directed it, and he was incredible. I feel like the set was so chill and really comfortable, and it seemed like it was all very planned out and very put together so we werenâ€™t going crazy and stressing out. Iâ€™m excited to see it all put together. Iâ€™m really confident that it will be good.
What was the process of being cast for the role of Alice? Were you familiar with the book series beforehand?
It was a really long, tedious process. I hadnâ€™t read the books, but I read them because they wouldnâ€™t release the script or breakdown. My manager told me to go into the audition and to do a good job and not to mess up because the casting directors were sticklers. So, I was like, â€œHow am I supposed to do a good job? I donâ€™t even know what Iâ€™m supposed to be playing!â€ I originally auditioned for Bella, and so I read the first book and kind of fell in love with it. I went in and auditioned and actually they called me back in and said, â€œNo, youâ€™re not right for Bella,â€ so I was bummed, and then they brought me back for Alice. I worked more on it â€“ that was all I did for a couple of days before I went in. I came in probably like five times before I actually got the role â€“ and then I went home for Christmas and literally just had to wait and wait. I thought that I didnâ€™t get it again, and then I got the call that I was Alice and I freaked out and called my dad and mom.
Do you tend to have more guy fans or more girl â€œtweenâ€ fans?
I definitely get more girls. Thereâ€™s been guys â€“ Iâ€™m used to the girls, so with the guys Iâ€™m kind of awkward, I feel like. But, some of them are really sweet.
What do you make of this Robert Pattinson craze? Itâ€™s starting to get to the point where the pandemonium is putting him in dangerous situations. Whatâ€™s your take on that?
Itâ€™s sad for Rob! Itâ€™s a hard thing because we absolutely adore our fans, and he does too, and they helped us get to where we are now so you have to be thankful for that. I applaud him â€“ with my fan encounters, thereâ€™s a process. Itâ€™s kind of like this chisel effect where thereâ€™s one and then itâ€™s two and then itâ€™s five, so I was kind of able to ace it. But he got slapped with 25,000 screaming girls so I definitely think heâ€™s taking it in stride. They love him so much and I know they donâ€™t want to hurt him, but people just donâ€™t realize that when theyâ€™re that many people coming with a force, it can be very dangerous sometimes.
How has it been with the other Twilight castmates? Is there anyone on set that you happen to be closer with?
Kellan [Lutz] and I are very close. I have different relationships with different people â€“ and itâ€™s really great, I kind of get the best of everything. Rachelle [Lefevre] and I have this, like, zest for life. She and I can just go and have a glass of wine and unwind, and we work out together and stuff like that so she and I have that kind of relationship â€“ I think weâ€™re both easygoing, fun people. Kristen [Stewart] and I recently got closer. I feel like in the first film, we were friends, but with our schedule we were never in the same place at the same time. So, with the second one, it was more intimate as far as the amount of people involved. After the first week or two of production, it was just me, Kristen, Rob and Taylor [Lautner], and then Rachelle was there for a little bit. Taylorâ€™s super, super sweet, and Jackson [Rathbone], I adore. I love them all. Theyâ€™re great.
When youâ€™re not filming, what do you do for fun?
I definitely try to make it home. I actually have my family fly out, and I have a couple of Florida friends fly out sometimes, and then I have a best friend or two in L.A. I just try hanging out and spending time with my friends â€“ I try and live a normal lifestyle.
