It's quite hardcore. It's quite graphic. It was when we were doing it anyway. But there's no way to do it. If you read the book, there's literally no way to do it in any kind of tamed way. So it was fun. It felt like it was brave." CAST AT CONFERENCE (SOUNDBITE) (English) KRISTEN STEWART SAYING: "I've been building up to this moment for five years; I was 17 when I started doing this movie. This one really is loaded with those really cathartic, impactful, huge life moments and they're not all completely fantasy. They're really very rooted in a reality that I can completely see myself in. Anyone who reads the book can image it. Shooting the scenes, I kind of had to let myself realize that these moments will find themselves naturally and I can't let the book punch me in the face every morning to wake me up and give me stomach aches. You have to let the moments happen." CAST AT CONFERENCE (SOUNDBITE) (English) TAYLOR LAUTNER SAYING: "A lot of the movie takes place inside, so most of our time spent we were in Baton Rouge filming on the stage and then we had two months in Vancouver, but "Breaking Dawn" is very intimate and I just feel like they did a really good job at allowing us to be creative and just be with each other and we really didn't have to focus on being distracted and anything like that in this movie."

- Story Text: The cast of "Twilight: Breaking Dawn" hits the Comic-Con exposition to talk details about the latest film in the teen vampire franchise.
The giant Comic-Con pop culture showcase opened on Thursday (July 21) with the stars of the newest teen vampire "Twilight" movie thrilling fans, some of whom camped out for days just to see them.
Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner gave fans a taste of the first of two final installments in the film franchise that has generated 1.8 billion dollars in worldwide ticket sales from three movies.
The fourth in the series, "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1" is the first part of the final chapter in the saga. Stewart, who portrays lead character Bella Swan in the romance movies, told fans at Comic-Con that she has had a difficult time separating herself from the character she portrays.
"This one really is loaded with those really cathartic, impactful, huge life moments and they're not all completely fantasy. They're really very rooted in a reality that I can completely see myself in."
Fans of the films and best-selling "Twilight" books by author Stephenie Meyer, know that in this first part of "Breaking Dawn," Bella and the vampire to whom her heart belongs, Edward Cullen, finally marry. But, of course, there is more trouble afoot for the pair, in what Pattinson said becomes one of the darkest of the movies so far.
"For a fantasy series that has kind of a youngish audience, it goes quite far. It's quite hardcore. It's quite graphic. It was when we were doing it anyway. But there's no way to do it. If you read the book, there's literally no way to do it in any kind of tamed way."
"Breaking Dawn" lands in theaters on November 18.
