Contact lenses "make Twilight star a natural vampire"

By Emily Tait

Robert Pattinson has revealed that his Twilight star Kristen Stewart is a "natural vampire" after she puts in the contact lenses required to play the part.

The pair are currently filming the remaining two films in the Twilight series, based on the book Breaking Dawn.

Scenes in the new films require Stewart's character Bella Swan to transform into a vampire - something she achieves thanks to makeup and coloured contact lenses.

However, Pattinson said that his female co-star is a natural once the outfit goes on and she interacts perfectly with his character Edward Cullen.

He told MTV: "It's like she wanted to do it the entire time. It's really funny, it's like a completely different environment on set when she's a vampire and when she's not. I think she's going to do it really well."

Last year, Pattinson revealed that coloured contact lenses help him to get into the brooding mood required to portray a creature of the night.
