Some media outlets are focusing on how fans are taking their favorite "Twilight" stars Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart's breakup, but their co-stars also had something to say.
According to Celeb Dirty Laundry, "Breaking Dawn Part 2" co-star Taylor Lautner, 20, who plays the role of Jacob in all the "Twilight" films, is reportedly disgusted with the whole cheating scandal, even though the whole cast were given explicit instructions to keep their mouths shut and not get involved.
"He looked up to her. He's dealing with it in a businesslike way because it's easier for him," the source said.
Judi Shekoni, who plays Zafrina in the upcoming epic finale "Breaking Dawn Part 2," commented on how she thought the scandal would affect fans and "The Twilight Saga" at the "Miss Me" album release party by The Songbirds.
"I think that Twilight is so big that nothing can affect it. I think it's going to be a huge success and I think that everything that was shot will stand for itself," Shekoni, 30, told Celebuzz.
"Twi-hards are completely and utterly in support. Like on my Twitter, everybody just talks about how excited they are for the film to come out.
"They're constantly talking about how they can't wait for the premiere, so we have so much support that I think it's undeniable it's going to be a huge success," she added.
Marisa Quinn, who plays the role of Huilen in "Breaking Dawn Part 2," also spoke.
"We had a warm-up last year at the Breaking Dawn: Part 1 premiere and it was so much fun," she continues. "It was one big party. And you know all of us got along so well on set that every time we get reunited it's just a blast."In regards to how the "Robsten" split may affect the film, the actress said, "I'm just so excited."
Quinn added, "I think by then that's several months away and they [Pattinson and Stewart] are just such professionals and ultimately they're amazing human beings. They're wonderful people, and I think that it's all going to work itself out."
Actress Christian Serratos, who plays Angela Weber (a mortal pal of Stewart's character Bella) in the five "Twilight" films, Stewart's fling with the married father-of-two isn't something that should affect ticket sales, reported US magazine.
"Of course people are fans of us now, but I think above anything, they're fans of these characters," she told Us Weekly at the Viva Glam magazine September issue launch party in Hollywood July 31. "I don't think anyone's really gonna give a sh-t. They're gonna see the movie; it's going to be awesome."
"I support anyone who's in love," explained the 21-year-old actress, who recently went blonde.Serratos said that she hopes they can work things out.
Director Bill Condon recently shared some words with Entertainment Weekly about the events surrounding Pattinson, 26, and Stewart, 22.
"The fact is, these are actors playing parts, and maybe it's not such a bad thing that people be reminded of that," Bill Condon tells EW. "Both of these actors gave heart and soul to the 'Twilight' movies, not only during shooting, but also by navigating so graciously the whole life-in-a-fishbowl aspect of the phenomenon. Above all they have always shown great respect for the fans who made these movies such a success. Now it's time that some of that respect be returned to them."
