Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner get handprint ceremony at Chinese theater
Kirsten Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner had their hand and footprints immortalized on Thursday, November 3, in a ceremony at Grauman's Chinese Theatre.
The theater has been busy this week with Mickey Rourke getting his prints in cement on Monday and the Alvin and the Chipmunks having their print ceremony on Tuesday.
The "Twilight" saga stars join Tom Cruise, Elizabeth Taylor and Jennifer Aniston in getting the honor.
"There are a few moments that mean just so much, it's really even hard to explain," Lautner, who plays the werewolf Jacob Black in the film, said during the event. "This is definitely one of those. This is really like a dream. It's such an honor."
"This is incredibly scary. I also forgot how hot LA was, I shouldn't have worn a suit," Pattinson, who plays vampire Edward Cullen, joked. "This is such an incredible honor. How young we are it's kind of ridiculous and amazing at the same time."
"It's all thanks to you guys who drive the franchise forward," he added. "You should all come up here and put your hands in!"
Stewart, who plays Bella Swan, said "No one said we had to make a speech or anything." She added, "This is so crazy for us."
"The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1" depicts the wedding of Swan, a human, and Pattinson's character, vampire Edward Cullen, and the consequences of their union. The film is set for release on November 18.
The previous three movies, the first of which was released in 2008, have grossed more than 1.8 billion worldwide. The second part of "Breaking Dawn" is due to be released on Nov. 16, 2012.
