Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner both kiss and tell

By Kim Palacios Among “Eclipse’s” most-anticipated scenes are those in which the Bella and Jacob characters kiss, resolving sexual tension that has been budding for Bella since “New Moon” and for Jacob since early in “Twilight”. The actors fielded, literally, dozens of questions on the topic from journalists during multiple press appearances in recent weeks. When compared to her early comments on kissing Robert Pattinson, Stewart’s less-than-glowing comments on kissing Lautner prove that her scenes with the vampire came out on top.

It was a long time ago, but “Twilight” and “New Moon” promo found both Pattinson and Stewart gushing about their kissing scenes. “I get to kiss Edward Cullen,” says Stewart with a big smile in this early interview with MTV on what she loves about Twilight. Pattinson often expressed similar sentiments when asked similar questions earlier in the life of the films.

Contrast Stewart’s early talk about Pattinson with comments about kissing scenes with Lautner. Stewart has said repeatedly that Bella/Jacob kissing moments were “hard” to shoot. Lautner also spoke of how their friendship made the scenes and their aftermath more than a little awkward.

Most curious is the inclination of both the stars and observers to write revisionist history. Early on, when Stewart and Pattinson were not busy denying a romantic relationship comments, conveying the chemistry between them flowed freely.
