Radar: I understand that Chris Weitz said for the last movie you guys did Wolf Camp? Tell me about that?
Spencer: Yeah, I like the choice of words, Wolf Camp. It was like a basic training. I had been going to the gym before I went up to Vancouver and just to keep in shape I go to the gym regularly but when we got there it was a whole different beast all together. They got us a trainer, and he had helped out the actors in 300 get in shape. It was really cool, me and the other guys, the wolf guys, we were pretty jacked that we were working out with the guy who was affiliated with 300. I think we were more excited about that than anything else. So what they did is he threw us into circuit training and muscle confusion workouts and we hit it pretty hard for about an hour and hour and a half. First thing in the morning that’s what we’d do. And then we just eat all day. It’s pretty much four to six meals a day plus three to four protein shakes a day as well.
Radar: What about when you’re done filming?
Spencer: I took like a week to eat anything I wanted and then I just traveled to clear my head and took my own road trips. I got back to the gym and continued to work out. It’s different though, my workouts are not like his. Not like the Wolf Camp workout.
“I call it ‘the muffin scene,’ ” revealed Gordon, who plays Jacob Black’s friend Embry Call in the flick. “We all gather around at Emily’s house — she’s Sam, the big pack leader’s, fiancée — and we all just gather around and eat muffins and talk about stuff.”

“I’m allowed to tell people that I play a vampire who has just been turned,” the 14-year-old Canadian actress tells me. “In other words, I’m a newborn vampire. I’m not allowed to say the name of the character.”
So if she won’t say whether her character is Team Edward or Team Jacob, what’s her pick in real life?
It’s Team Edward all the way for Jodelle.
“I just think if maybe Jacob had been introduced first then everybody would like him better,” she said. “It just seems that since Edward was the first one to be with Bella, people want him to stay with her. So, you know, that’s the character that you start to like first! And then Jacob comes into the picture and everybody’s like, ‘Oh, no! Stay with Edward.’”
Jodelle says she’s “really, really excited to meet Robert Pattinson.” As are her friends. “Every single person I’ve told has asked me if they could come to the set,” she said, adding with a laugh, “I’ve said, ‘I’ll have to think about that.’”

IESB: What initially attracted you to acting? Was there someone or something that inspired you to do it, or did you just know that you wanted to be a performer?
Peter: No, I was the opposite of a performer. I was really shy, when I was growing up. I saw a movie called Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid in third grade, and I thought Paul Newman and Robert Redford looked like they were having a really good time, and I said, “That’s what I want to do, when I grow up.” I always was inspired by Paul Newman and Robert Redford to want to be an actor, but I never really did anything about it because I was shy. So, all through high school, I never did a play.
Not until college, did I start to do acting. I transferred into NYU from St. John’s University and started studying theater. I was going to take law because it seemed to impress people in my family when I said, “I want to be a lawyer when I grow up.” One time, I told them that I wanted to be an actor and they all looked at me like I had five heads. The next time they asked me what I wanted to be, I said, “A lawyer,” and I got a lot of oohs and aahs in the family. When you watch movies and you watch Law & Order, it looks so interesting.
The 14-year-old Vancouverite has just landed a coveted role in Eclipse, the third film in the series. Since seeing the first film with friends and auditioning for the role, she borrowed and read all four books.
“I hadn’t heard much about Twilight when it first came out,” she said in a phone interview from Playland.
“I’m home-schooled so sometimes I don’t hear about things like that,” she said. “But my friends were all freaking out about Twilight and I was like ‘What’s that?’”
“Now I know what it is, obviously,” she laughed.

ET: Are you writing for the chemistry between Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart?
Melissa Rosenberg: When I wrote ‘Twilight,’ I didn’t know who was starring in it, so I wrote in a vacuum. There was some rewriting that had to be done when we knew who they were, because I had started with more of a comedic edge and it wasn’t appropriate for those actors and the tone. I lean toward the dark comedy, witness “Dexter.” So, going into ‘New Moon’ and ‘Eclipse,’ I knew who I was writing for. I knew who the characters were and what their voices were. It got even easier with ‘Eclipse.’ [Author] Stephenie Meyer’s created the character’s chemistry; and those two actors brought so much chemistry. I don’t think the movies would have been so successful without those two actors and their chemistry. ‘Twilight’ was beautifully cast.

“Are you the wolf girl?” This is the question Bella poses to Emily in The Twilight Saga: New Moon, and RadarOnline.com reporter Alexis Tereszcuk sat down with Tinsel Korey for lunch at (where else?) Moonshadows in Malibu, CA to find out more about the actress and what the wolf pack guys are really like on set.
Known for the horrific scar on her face, Tinsel revealed that the application took hours and that it was a painful process to go through. She also said that Kristen Stewart wasn’t acting, and that she was really taken aback by the scar the first time she saw her disfigured face.
The fiance of Sam, one of the werewolves, wants her fans to know that she “has a really dry sense of humor,” and she joked about a long grueling day on the set with Taylor Lautner – “Working with half naked guys, it was tough.” Rob Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, and Tinsel will hit the big screen again when New Moon is released in theaters on November 20.
AB: What was your favorite part of Eclipse?
PF: I actually like that, in the book, a lot of the family members are talked about, and in the movie they’re in it a lot more. The books are all told from Bella’s perspective, so a lot of times, when she’s not in the scene and things are happening, you don’t actually get to see them, like the battle scene, for instance. In Eclipse when the whole family and the werewolves are fighting the newborn vampires, it’s talked about and through Edward you kind of get something, but in the movie you actually get to see it, you know, so I like that in the interpretations of the movies, it’s not always about Bella’s perspective. She isn’t always in the scene, and so that opens up the story a little bit. The Cullens are in it a lot more throughout.
