Bryce, a new addition to the cast, says she got in great shape for the movie's fight scenes, but she found herself holding back. She says she was worried that if she ruined heartthrob Robert Pattinson
's famously messy hair, she'd be enemy number one with the movie's fans.
"I just knew that, in our fight scene, if I messed up his hair, millions of young women would want to kill me, so I really tried to be careful not to do that," she told Parade magazine
. "Actually, I was more nervous about not pulling my punches because I certainly didn't want to be the one to smack him in the face. In the end, it was fun. But there's a point after which you've been wrestling with someone in take after take for six consecutive hours that it just becomes absurd. You can't help but laugh."
Bryce also says she and her co-stars were subjected to some rigorous undertaking before filming Eclipse
, which promises to pack more action than the first two Twilight
"We all landed in Vancouver and were promptly brought to a facility where we got initiated by doing, like, six hours of fight training. We literally worked on the fight scenes pretty much every day. And then we went to the gym. I think I can say my heart rate is lower. I'm definitely more fit than I was before the film."
opens Wednesday, June 30th, and promises to be one of the summer's biggest blockbusters. The fourth Twilight
book, Breaking Dawn
, will be broken up into two movies with the first one due out in November, 2011.
