Ashley Greene Hopes Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart Drama Doesn't 'Taint' Twilight

When Breaking Dawn: Part 2 opens this week, Ashley Greene hopes fans can concentrate on the big screen action – and forget about the off-screen drama surrounding the film's two main stars.

Of course, over the last several months Twi-hards have been enthralled with the ups and downs of Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson's all-too-real breakup due to her cheating scandal and eventual reconciliation.

Asked if she thinks audiences will be affected by the couple's issues, Greene, 25, tells Seventeen, "I don’t know. Hopefully, it won’t taint it and people will still be able to enjoy the movie. I think a lot of people see us as our characters; I really want them to still be able to do that."

Breaking Dawn: Part 2 Trailer: Bella Becomes a Vampire

Bella is back!

After spending half of Breaking Dawn wasting away due to a very complicated pregnancy, Bella Swan (Kristin Stewart) has crossed over to immortality.

In the newly released trailer for Breaking Dawn: Part 2, Bella is now a vampire. "After 18 years of being utterly ordinary," she says, "I finally found that I can shine."

Complete with red eyes and pale skin, the transformed Bella is seen caressing her love Edward (Robert Pattinson) as he tells her, "[You're] so beautiful. We're the same temperature now."

The short clip ends with a frightening shot of Bella stalking a deer in the woods. There will no doubt be more action for the vampires – and werewolves – in Breaking Dawn: Part 2, which hits theaters on Nov. 16.

One month after Nikki Reed tied the knot with American Idol alum Paul McDonald, it appears the pair are still firmly in the honeymoon phase.

"The first year [of marriage] is not the hardest. Gosh, if this is the hardest, then it’s gonna be easy breezy," Reed, 23, told PEOPLE Thursday at Wired Magazine's 7th Annual Store Kick-Off party in New York. "Even under the most stressful circumstances he and I are such a good team."

And they're in no rush to expand their family any time soon.

Before Breaking Dawn – Part One hits theaters on Friday, raise a glass to the popular franchise with a specially shaken Twilight-themed cocktail.

Bartender Jason McGrady of Seattle's Sazerac Restaurant, inside the Hotel Monaco, was so inspired by the series, he mixed up a handful of specialty drinks inspired by Stephanie Meyer's series.

And there's a local connection.

McGrady's restaurant is located in the closest major city to Forks, Wash., where the Twilight series is set, and fans pass through Seattle when they come to take Twilight-themed tours in Forks, he says.

"One of the most important parts of my job as a bartender is keeping up with what's current and what's hot," McGrady tells PEOPLE. "And in this part of the world, Twilight is definitely hot."

(Note: Spoilers follow)

There's actually good news for everyone here. Twilight fans can rejoice that Breaking Dawn – Part 1, opening Friday, is a breathless, faithful portrayal of so much they've waited to see: Edward (Robert Pattinson) and Bella's (Kristen Stewart) wedding, honeymoon and their darling, matricidal little bundle of joy.

Twilight haters can delight in the fact that it's the beginning of the end.

As a fully recovered Twi-hard for whom the book Breaking Dawn was a breaking point, I get it. Years have passed for fans waiting to get to this moment, the inarguably gorgeous, wildly over the top nuptials of Bella Swan and Edward Cullen, and here, Part 1 doesn't disappoint.

Since playing Alice Cullen in the Twilight saga, Ashley Greene has dated a pop star, traveled all over the world and graced the covers of some of the biggest magazines – but the actress says none of the glitz and glamour has changed her.

"I have the same friends and family and the same kind of foundation that have kept me grounded from the very beginning," Greene, 25, told PEOPLE at Monday's Breaking Dawn – Part 1 premiere in L.A. "That's probably the only thing that hasn't changed."

Other things, however, have been altered in Greene's life since taking on her coveted role beginning when she was 20.

Costars said she was easy on the eyes when she turned heads in a dazzling white wedding dress.

But not everything Kristen Stewart wore while filming Breaking Dawn was easy on her eyes.

When the Twilight actress made her vampire transformation for the second part of the saga's final installment – the first of which arrives in theaters Friday – it wasn't the fangs she had to get used to … it was the amber contact lenses all of the vampires wear in the film.

"That is one thing I can't wait to say goodbye to," Stewart, 21, tells MTV News of the eyewear accessory. "They just kill you. [They give you] dead face."

Taylor Lautner tries to stay away from reading about himself online, but his efforts are rarely successful.

"It's tough because sometimes you'll just be on the Web and things pop up or you get emailed something from a friend," the Breaking Dawn – Part 1 actor, 19, tells PARADE. "It's definitely impossible to avoid stuff about me sometimes, but it's pretty important to try."

Most importantly, he dislikes seeing things written about himself because they are usually false.
