Stephenie Meyer recalls filming the climactic birth scene. Watch the behind-the-scenes clip of Edward (Robert Pattinson) trying to revive Bella (Kristen Stewart) as Stephenie explains:
"He was really able to touch the human emotions of that scene. Rob really nailed it,"Stephenie recalled. "It was really powerful. I teared up, several people near me did. It was just a lump in your throat—that moment of thinking you've lost everything and not being able to accept it. It was really emotional."
Yet, as fraught as that life-or-death moment was, we can't help but smile at the quick shot of director Bill Condon fist-pumping when Rob nailed it. Very sweet.
