"Being able to share with these guys, the fans, [they] are an ever-present, motivating, reassuring thing," Kristen Stewart told MTV News before Thursday's "Breaking Dawn - Part 2" panel. "It's really nice, but when they're actually physically in front of you, if you can get over the blast of energy that's thrown at you, it's the most amazing shared energy thing. They're just as invested in it as I am, and to see that is mind-blowing. I love it."
Stewart's co-star Nikki Reed couldn't agree more about the warm and fuzzy feeling she shares with and for her fans. "Being here with the fans this year has been really special for me," Reed said. "The fact that they're still here four years later and that I recognize a lot of them — I can see that they've cut their hair or lost weight or they're wearing makeup — all those little things are very bizarre, but I feel like I know a lot of them, and I just can't express how grateful I am to have this, because we are at a time right now where capturing someone's attention for more than five minutes is nearly impossible."
Kellan Lutz also shares in the general fan appreciation, but also has a special place in his heart for a very specific group of his fans: "I love the Slutz for Lutz, that started here, I believe," he said with a smile. "That just always cracks me up every time someone has a shirt or screams 'Slutz for Lutz!' It puts a smile on my face."
