Taylor, Kristen talk 'New Moon' love triangle

LOS ANGELES "I haven't stopped working for two years but I feel like I'm at a really good age to do that," said Kristen. "If I suddenly was told to go home tomorrow, I'd be like released from the army and wouldn't know what to do with myself."

Kristen is spending time all around the world promoting "New Moon." In the film, her vampire love, "Edward Cullen," played by Robert Pattinson, exits her life. Entering it is werewolf Jacob Black, played by Taylor Lautner.

"That forces Bella into this deep depression that only her best friend, Jacob, can bring her out of. So then Jacob develops this relationship with Bella and that starts this love triangle," explained Taylor. He then adds that, "there's also a lot more action in this one now that we have werewolves."

When asked if Bella would be a friend if she were real, Kristen replied: "I would totally want to be friends with Bella. I don't know if she would be my friend. She's very wrapped up in the world of werewolves and vampires. I mean, yeah, she's awesome. I would totally be her friend but she's sort of an introvert."

Taylor had to gain weight and muscle to play Jacob this time around. But he did get to lose something, too: his wig.

"I was so happy, it was the best day of my life," laughed Taylor. "The last day I filmed with my wig, we ripped that thing off, held that thing up in the air proudly and picture-wrapped that sucker and it was gone."
