“Rob [Pattinson] and I have jammed quite a bit (on the set),” he says. “Miss [Kristen] Stewart is quite a guitarist and singer herself. Nikki Reed is actually a fantastic songwriter and she is an amazing singer, too, but it’s hard to get her to sing. I think I’m one of the few people that’s ever gotten her to sing. I badgered her enough. On this last movie I was teaching Ashley [Greene] a little bit about the ukulele. Kellan [Lutz] is actually taking up the guitar…We always had a good ol’ time [playing music together on the set.]“
Of course, the good times couldn’t go on forever for the Twilight cast and crew, who have wrapped filming on the final chapter in the saga, Breaking Dawn — Part 2. “The last day of filming was bittersweet, it was surreal,” Rathbone says. “It was about three in the morning. It was wet, it was very, very cold. When they called wrap, the core Cullen clan was there and we just all kind of looked at each other and were like, ‘Man!’”
Still, the Twilight cast hasn’t said their final goodbyes just yet. When asked if they had a party, Rathbone said with a laugh, “We had a couple! You can’t have just one for finishing Twilight. It was quite the experience.” And lest we forget, there are still the red carpet premieres for both Breaking Dawn films. “Ask me again how I’m doing after the last premiere and I’ll probably be even more sentimental,” he says, mimicking a cry. “Ohhh, I miss those guys!”
“It’s definitely sexy,” Jackson Rathbone told us at Leeza Gibbons‘ Dare2Care Pre-Oscar Cocktail party of Edward and Bella’s highly-anticipated onscreen love-making. “It definitely qualifies as shmexaaay.”
“It’s a PG-13 movie, but also it is what it is and it’s a union,” Rathbone said. “They are consummating their relationship and they don’t just do it once, let’s put it that way.”
Hear that! Robsten go at it more…than…once!
Rathbone also assures us we’ll be seeing lots of that signature Rob and Kristen chemistry in the flick.
“Oh yeah,” he laughed. “It sizzles, man. It sizzles like bacon!”
I’ve got Breaking Dawn baby news for you!
Nope, none of the stars are expecting a new bundle of joy (at least not that we know of), but…
Jackson Rathbone tells me that the cast is very impressed by screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg‘s treatment of the much-talked-about birthing scene in B.D. “I think people are really, really excited and surprised about how tastefully it can be done,” he said at Spike TV’s Scream Awards.
Nikki Reed echoed Rathbone’s enthusiasm. “It’s intense,” she said. “It’s really intense.”
“I play a pivotal role in this, because this is what Rosalie has always wanted, you know what I mean?” she continued. “So, I’m working really hard. I’m with my acting coach every day, three hours a day…I really care about this and I want it to be good.”
Although they’ll be shooting both B.D. movies until next spring, Rathbone and Reed know that saying goodbye when they wrap won’t be easy. “I’ve had an amazing time working with the cast, and the fans have been incredible and so supportive of all us,” Rathbone said. “It’s going to be sad.”
“It’s not ending for a long time,” Reed said with a big smile. “But I’m going to be sad and here’s why: I’m working with really great people, people that I love. I’ve worked with some really talented directors. I’ve traveled all over the world with the series.”

In the interview Jackson discusses the Breaking Dawn script saying that how “Renesmee was made” is in the script!! He also talks about where Breaking Dawn Part 1 will end, asking the fan sites where they think it should be.
“Rob is an incredible songwriter,” Rathbone says. “And he plays piano and guitar.” One of Pattinson’s roughhewn ballads appears on the original Twilight soundtrack; a second is available as an iTunes bonus track.

New Twilight hunk Xavier Samuel has told how he and Robert Pattinson have formed the world’s hottest guitar band.
The Australian, who plays bad boy Riley in Twilight: Eclipse, says he plays guitar with his co-stars Pattinson and Jackson Rathbone to help relax.
But sadly for Twilight’s legion of female fans, they have no plans to take to the road.
Speaking about jamming with Pattinson, Samuel said: “We do play together when we get the chance. Especially Jackson and Rob (Pattinson). They play the guitar but we’re not going to start a boy band or anything like that.”
Growing up in Adelaide, Samuel sang with local band Hyatus, then called Degrees of Freedom.
But he now wants to concentrate on acting, saying: “I don’t have any aspirations of becoming a musician or a rock star or anything like that but I take the guitar with me because it helps me wind down.”
