Nikki Reed: 'Twilight' Success Changed the Cast

The cast of Twilight stepped out for the black carpet premiere of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn—Part 1 on Monday night. Thousands of fans gathered, some of them had been there for weeks, yes weeks.

Twi-hards have launched the Twilight series from a semi-popular tween movie to an epic, gargantuan trademark. And Twilight star Nikki Reed says that success has changed some of the cast members.

"In the beginning it was innocent and fun," Reed recollects of the early days on set. "We were like one big happy family. It was like being at sleepaway camp."

But when the first movie premiered in 2008, "success came along and changed the dynamic," Reed told reporters. "We're not all best friends, and we're not all going to hang out together after the final movie is done."

Way to break the hearts of fans everywhere, Nikki. Because I'm pretty sure 90% of them think what happens in the movie is real. I haven't seen people go as crazy about a fake wedding since Kim Kardashian's. Hell, even Kristen Stewart says it felt real.

"I don't know, it felt very natural. It felt like, kind of a real ceremony to me," Stewart said.

But Reed says that when the cameras stopped rolling, she saw her costars' relationships fall apart.

"It was very, very sad," Reed continues. "Let's just leave it at that."

But she continues: "Attachments grow when you're working with the same people for so long. People are friends, people fall in love, people get in fights. We're not all robots in that way. Sure, things have gone on, and it's weird to have them be in the public eye."

Reed married American Idol contestant Paul McDonald in October. Hollyscoop asked the actress if she has any plans for a family. "Not yet, just musical babies for now," Reed told us. She and McDonald co-wrote a song for the Twilight soundtrack, Now That I Found You.

"He recorded the music," Nikki explained in the past. " I just sat and wrote lyrics to his music. Then we went in this Saturday, and recorded it with Andre Harris."

Reed says that the two work well together.

"He's really supportive and encourages everything, so he wants to be a superteam."
