Nikki Reed Covers 'Seventeen' December 2011

Nikki Reed Covers 'Seventeen' December 2011

Nikki Reed takes the cover of Seventeen magazine’s December/January 2011 issue, on newsstands Tuesday (November 22).

Here’s what the 23-year-old Breaking Dawn actress had to share:

On the Twilight cast, behind the scenes: “In the beginning, it was innocent and fun, and we were like one big happy family – it was like being sleepaway camp. And then success comes along and changes the dynamic. We’re not all best friends, and we’re not all going to hang out together after the final movie is done.”

On people’s misconceptions of her: “I got typecast as a party girl when Thirteen first came out. The funny thing was, I was a virgin, I didn’t do drugs and I barely drank.”

    I like how honest she is about the cast not being best friends. Refreshing.

    What does she mean when Thirteen came out she barely drank? She shouldn’t have been drinking AT ALL! She was underage. I’m not gonna give her a pat on the back because she didn’t go overboard.

  • ag

    She sounds really bitter. All her recent interviews are about how the cast are no longer friends. I wonder why…

  • loleech

    wow. for someone who apparently has moved on and is blissfully newlywed she is sounding bitter! ALL her recent interviews people talk about how she changes her demeanor, the way she glances even at the mention of twilight!stating her opinion where everyone can see she’s talking about someone/something there, and she does’nt mention it by name.

    Girl, you’re gorgeous. whatever happened,happened. smile and STOP talking about it.

  • What is she talking about? Success came along and Kristen took Robert away from her? And obviously she’s the only person who can handle fame? As if!

  • loleech


    I couldn’t say it better myself.She had everything to let thing go and stop being, you know…a bitch. part of me feels really sad for her :(

  • looker

    She looks like Kate Middleton’s sister.

  • Lol

    It’s interesting that all the cast always talk about how friendly they are with each other. But Nikki always says the opposite.

  • Melissa

    Hmm sounds interesting…who is she feuding with I wonder?

  • Si

    I dont keep up with this… but wasn’t she BFF with Kristen?? Is this all for Rob?? …. That must be weird shooting together…

  • Sue Denim

    I think it’s refreshing and interesting but ultimately very unprofessional. I like her for some reason because she’s gorgeous and a talented writer but I feel sorry for her. She seems very lost and I don’t think her new husband will fix her insecurity issues.

  • Sue Denim

    I just wanted to add that Nikki seems to still be friendly with Kristen and her family so she might be talking about someone like Ashley and/or Kellan (although I think they were always famewhores tbh…).

  • jacqueline

    Is she still friends with Kristen? Because I remember in 2008 they were always together, they kissed in one photoshoot, I think they were best friends, then all of a sudden they stopped hanging out… if their friendship ended because of a guy, that’s the stupidest thing they could’ve ever done, no guy is worth more than your best friend, BUT maybe one of them screwed up big time… we’ll never know, I just miss seeing them happy together.
    And now a lot of the Twilight fans are hating on her saying ‘she’s doing Seventeen shoots while Kristen is featured in way more important magazines…’

  • speaktruth

    Her and Kristen are still friends guys. She talks about it how they are and how great Rob is. I don’t think there’s any resentment toward them at all.
    I think it’s natural that with the explosion that Twilight experienced that some of the cast has changed. Ashley, for instance, seems to think she’s the star.
    From what I’ve seen, Nikki is really mature for her age and probably doesn’t want to surround herself with famewhores. Paul is a great guy, which you know if you watched him on Idol. I think she’s making decisions to better her life. The comments may come off as bitter, but I think she was just being honest and didn’t mean them in a mean way at all.

  • speaktruth

    With her comments about 13, I think she’s just sick of constantly being stereotyped as this wild child. When promoting the movie to media, she was told to say that she drank and had sex, etc. when, in reality, she didn’t.
    As I said before, I think she’s just trying to be honest and let her true self shine. I respect her a lot for that.

  • janiece

    @speaktruth: I totally agree with you. I think Nikki and Kristen may have had some type of falling out when Kristen started dating Rob, but I think it had more to do with Kristen dumping her ex-bf (Michael something) for Rob that Nikki had the problem with since her, Kristen and Michael were all friends. Regardless of the reason, it doesn’t seem like Kristen and Nikki have any animosity towards each other. Sometimes friends just grow apart and become different people. If anything, Nikki probably doesn’t like Ashley, which is understandable.

  • ALSwendy

    I admire her honesty. She talks about heartache as well in this issue. Saying she fell in love while filming Twilight I assume that someone is her ex-boyfriend Robert Pattinson. And that the end of their relationship was very very sad. I feel for her. She’s at a better place now with her husband, happy for her.

  • Jen

    It’s kinda refreshing that she’s not pretending that all is well and dandy, I can’t help but think that she’s only saying it to get attention and stirr things up.

    She and Rob were never boyfriend/girlfriend. Hooked up? Sure!Dating? Maybe. Relationship? NO!
    Rob only used her as something to entertain himself with, while he was waiting for Kristen to break up with Michael. Everybody knows that .

  • KayJay

    It’s really is funny bcuz during her wedding to McDonald, she barely invited anyone from the twilight cast. HELLLLLLLO! There’s something there. In that sort of group, there are bound to be ups and downs wiv people but the fact that she’s saying this now makes hr sound bitter. Can anyone help me, WHO IS SHE BEEFING? Is it ASHLEY, ROBERT OR MORE LIKELY KRISTEN? I guess we will never know. But for God sake, why is she talking now behind their backs?

  • AlSwendy

    whatever helps you sleep at night. I doubt somebody she was just hooking up would be devastated after a break up like she was over Robert. Just because it doesn’t fit your idea of who Rob would date doesn’t mean they weren’t BF and GF. Not everything is a fairytale with an evil witch getting between the prince and princess. Sorry!

  • sally

    I love and respect her for honesty. It’s refreshing. That’s what celebrities these days need b/c they all seem recycled and act like puppets.

    More power to you, Nik!
