11-year-old Mackenzie Foy joined Kristen and Rob, along with co-star Taylor Lautner (who plays Jacob Black) on the new cover of Entertainment Weekly, where they talked about the role of the half-vampire half-human daughter in Breaking Dawn Part 2.
“They were amazing with her,” Director Bill Condon revealed about Kristen and Robert working on set with Mackenzie. “It really brought something paternal out in Rob, and Kristen was especially protective. I’d have to interrupt them when they were in deep conversation to get going with a scene.”
“I loved chatting with Mackenzie,” Kristen says. “I’m always curious about what’s going on in the minds of kids on set. She’s really close to the age I was when I started.”
Robert admitted that having a young girl on the set was a big change for the cast. “We’re all around the same age and we’re really not polite to each other anymore,” he says. “You’d have to tone it down when Mackenzie was around. She had a little swear jar, and I think she made 850 bucks or something.”
Kristen even joked about the similarities that Mackenzie when it comes to looking like her and Rob. “Even our hands look similar,” Stewart says. “It was kind of strange. But it’s funny how it actually helps. It’s like, ‘Oh, hey, you look like me, kid! Come on!’”
