What’s life like in the Twilight bubble? The Twilight Saga: New Moon star Nikki Reed opens up about being chased by paparazzi (“maybe Britney Spears was on my plane?”), her character’s back story in third film Eclipse (“We went back to the ’30s, Jack Houston played Royce, my fiance”), and whether she would have picked up Stephenie Meyer’s books back when she was 13 (“I don’t know if I’m supposed to say this, but probably not … I was a really cynical child”). Oh, and one last thing: she admits she’s Team Jacob. “I’ve been through my share of Edwards,” she says.
Reed also takes a moment to clear up some misconceptions about controversial film Thirteen, where she portrayed a nasty badass teen in a picture that was described as loosely autobiographical (she also co-wrote the script). “I wasn’t sexually active, but yet I was doing interviews where I said that I was. That’s what Thirteen was: it was shocking, because we were so young and because I wrote it.” For more stunning admissions from the 21-year-old actress, watch the full episode of Off the Cuff With Peter Travers.
