The birth scene in "Breaking Dawn" gets pretty creepy, and it sounds like the baby stand-in used on set didn't help.
In the upcoming “Twilight” installment, Bella (Kristen Stewart) gives birth to her child with vampire love Edward (Robert Pattinson), and it turns out Stewart and Pattinson were totally creeped out by their onscreen kid.
"We had an animatronic baby, the scene where [Bella] had to be introduced to the baby for the first time," Pattinson explained at Comic-Con, according to MTV.
As a result, Stewart didn’t exactly have a maternal moment filming the post-birth scene.
"[The puppeteer] is sweating right below my eyeline, trying to [reach] up to get the [animatronic baby's] hand up to touch your face," she said. "And then it sticks to your hair and pulls a little bit and you're like, 'Ew, get that thing off me! Get me a real baby, this is ridiculous!'"
Says Pattinson of the baby stand-in, "It looked like a little troll on a stick."
Here's hoping no one has nightmares after watching it. "Breaking Dawn: Part I" bows on November 18.
