Would you trade in what you have now for that?
Nikki Reed: “I don’t believe in regretting things, so I don’t want to say, ‘Yes, tomorrow I’ll just walk away.’ I love what I do but I have moments where I envy my brother a lot and I envy what he’s doing. Yes, definitely, just to be taken care of and to not have to be an adult and to just be carefree and to not deal with articles written about whether or not you can be the most beautiful person in the world and scrutinized by 20 million people, and worry about your weight or your this or all of the superficial things. I’m still a kid. That is one thing I’ve learned how to say. Like after turning 20, I decided I’m still a kid. And before that I was like Miss Adult. And I’m a kid now. I’m sitting in an interview, I have my shoes off. I don’t know if I’m ready for all of this. I don’t know.”
Do you think it’s all hitting you now just because of how big Twilight is and because of how much you’re being examined?
Nikki Reed: “Yes.”
Is that why you’re thinking you could trade this in for something a little simpler?
Nikki Reed: “Yes, in a lot of ways I think that. …You know, I feel like that a lot. Since Thirteen and stuff there’s been a lot of pressure on me to be bigger than I needed to be.”
You’ve had your life examined…
Nikki Reed: “Yes, I’ve been put under the magnifying glass a lot and for a lot of these kids who haven’t done – I don’t want to sound like I’m insulting people so I’m not going to name names but a lot of our cast had never done anything before this and this is a really wild ride for them. And by the way, I am super appreciative and super grateful for all. I am. I’m not just saying this and hoping that you write it. I do think it’s really awesome. You know, actors will sit around and bitch and complain about, ‘Oh I hate this. I hate that. I hate the attention.’ No, we all like a certain amount of that and it is validating. It makes you feel like, ‘Oh, good or bad, at least people are noticing or paying attention or writing about it.'”
Exactly. But there’s also a limit to that.
Nikki Reed: “Yes, and this has been one of those movies [where] there’s been a lot of that.”
And then there’s going to be more, so at least you’ve been building up a little bit thicker skin from this one.
Nikki Reed: “Yes. And I have to say one thing. If it weren’t for Kristen [Stewart], this would have been a lot more overwhelming. But Kristen and I are best friends and so to have her along, not along… I mean I’m supporting her in this. I don’t know mean have her along, you know what I mean? To be a part of it together…”
You’re there for each other.
Nikki Reed: “Yes. It’s great. We’re going on tour next week and just because we’re really good friends they’ve paired us and that’s really good. It’s really cool to watch somebody that you love and care about do really good work. She just did this movie called Welcome to the Rileys in New Orleans.”
That’s where she plays a stripper?
Nikki Reed: “Yes, and I stayed there while she was shooting and I was there. She’s actually coming back for two more days on Monday and I’m missing all of my press next week so I can just go be with her, just because like that’s what life is about, you know what I mean?”
If you don’t, you’d look back on it and regret you weren’t there.
Nikki Reed: “Yeah, man. I know this sounds so silly but I just made it to Celebrity iTunes playlist and they wanted to know…and honestly, we have short-term memory. You just remember recent events and just being in New Orleans with her and sitting in the middle of nowhere while she’s shooting scenes and with my iPod and listening to music. My whole playlist came from that, or from Michael Angarano, one of my best friends and her boyfriend and my rock. He’s here with me all day. We are like that little triangle, you know what I mean? It’s so cool, it really is so cool.”
And having Catherine Hardwicke being the director also had to help you. You know each other well, so was she another part of your support system?
Nikki Reed: “Yes. You know, especially in Twilight there was a lot going on. I mean, she was the director. Any answer you would get from me would probably be the same from Kristen or Robert [Pattinson] or whatever. She was the director. Her and I, there’s this funny little misconception that floats around since Thirteen like, ‘Oh, Catherine basically raised you,’ or ‘Catherine is your step[mother].’ No. No, I have a mom. I have a mom and even though we made a movie about all the mistakes she made as a parent called Thirteen…”
Nikki Reed tackles the role of Rosalie, a beautiful vampire who puts fashion models to shame, in the movie version of Stephenie Meyer’s bestselling book, Twilight. Reed is absolutely stunning, though not a blonde like her character in Twilight, and the actress went to great lengths to transform herself into Rosalie in order to satisfy fans of the book. And if all goes as expected, Reed will have to go through the process of becoming Rosalie a couple more times (if New Moon, Eclipse and Breaking Dawn movies are given the go-ahead). Reed’s ready to do so, even though it’s a rather arduous process.
Reed’s been acting in films since bursting onto the scene in Thirteen, a powerful coming-of-age story which she not only starred in but also wrote. Well-spoken and passionate about where she wants to go in life, Reed told me in our interview she’s working on more writing projects with hopes of eventually taking a seat in the director’s chair at some point down the line. But for now, Twilight promotional duties are keeping her busy.
You’re playing a vampire who’s one of the most beautiful women in the world. So, when you got the script did you go, “Okay, I can do this.”?
Nikki Reed: “No! You know, the only person that makes me feel like the most beautiful woman in the world… [Jokingly yelling to Kristen Stewart’s boyfriend in the next room] Michael Angarano makes me feel like the most beautiful person in the world! But I should really learn – we’re in a state right now, you and I – where I still don’t really know how to approach that question. Maybe in like a year down the line I will have like a set answer.”
“I don’t know what it is. You know, I’m flattered. I’m flattered that I got put in that position but, you know, when you’re dealing with a situation where like Edward and Rosalie are kind of described as like the most breathtakingly beautiful vampires and the fan base – you have lots of little girls. I know that he fills those shoes really well. They’re a perfect fit but, you know, I have kind of a feeling that like maybe if there were like 7,000 fan boys that were like the age of 13, they would be screaming over me. [Laughing] So I don’t know. God, it’s really awful.”
You’re right. The fan base is predominantly young females.
Nikki Reed: “Yes. The majority, it’s undeniable, the majority are younger girls and that’s why like Kellan [Lutz], Taylor [Lautner] and Jackson [Rathbone], any of the boys walk on stage and they sneeze and people are like dying over them. [Laughing] And I sit there and I’m trying to be really articulate with my answers and sound like someone intelligent, at least when I’m responding to questions. And then most of the time they’re just like, ‘So you’re playing Rosalie, the most beautiful person in the world…’ And I’m like, ‘Yeah.’ I just want to look at them and go, ‘I’m sorry.'”
Ashley Greene: “Yes, it’s incredible. For someone to be that passionate about something and to be passionate about your character, it’s amazing.”
Was there a book or a movie or something from when you were younger that you felt that passionately about, like some of these kids do about Twilight?
Ashley Greene: “No. I mean it’s like the Beatles and I’m not…”
You’re way too young for that.
Ashley Greene: “I’m too young for the Beatles but that’s, you know, talking to my mom and stuff like that. But it’s like, you know, Elvis Presley. I think I was too old for Harry Potter. I’m like, ‘Did I miss everything?’ I loved Hanson a lot.”
I’m not sure you should admit that.
Ashley Greene: “I was also like 12, but yeah, I missed this stuff. But that’s what’s kind of more incredible about it to me is that they are that passionate. You know, my career obviously I’m very passionate about it, so it’s really nice that they share that with me. Because, you know, everybody wants something to love that much.”
Absolutely. And speaking of your career, has Twilight been a real launching pad for other projects?
Ashley Greene: “It has. Yes, that’s the other thing. It’s opened these doors. It’s great. I filmed actually after the wrap of Twilight I filmed Summer’s Blood in Canada and I’m in the midst of filming something called Skateland which is a movie that’s set in the ’80s which was fun to do. And I’m like I look so much like my mom whenever you’ve got the hair, Farrah Fawcett hair and makeup, so I sent her a picture and that was really cool. But, yeah, you know the buzz helps but people are just more confident in hiring you, and I think I’m more confident in myself and it helps. It shows in the room and I’m kind of like, ‘I can do this. This is what I want to do.’ And then just generally, producers and directors that want to meet you because you’re part of something that’s predicted to be kind of a big thing.”
Ashley Greene: [Laughing] “I wasn’t going to say that but it’s okay if you do. But yeah, they want to meet these people. They want to meet us and so that’s been really, really helpful.”
