Nikki Reed on how her own maternal instincts came out after filming scenes with Renesmee:
"Elizabeth Reaser will tell you that I'm very maternal because I cooked for her. I love children. I do. I don't want any right now. I'm not ready. But I love being around them. Mackenzie, by the way, is like the most professional. I know it seems like sort of an obvious thing to say because we should say that about her, but I'm constantly impressed with her ability to sort of cope with everything and how normal she is and how normal her mother is. My apartment was across the hall from them, and I think that was sort of done on purpose so we could bond and spend time together. I was alone, single and alone, while we were filming, so I would spend almost every night cooking with her and her family. I think it totally changed the tone of the set. There was a child around, so we all had to behave ourselves."
