Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner are sharing new "New Moon" insights with MTV, including details about their love triangle storyline, new scene secrets, and what Kristen had to say that almost "killed" her.

In November, fans will finally get to see Bella's long-awaited relationship with Jacob Black emerge onscreen in "New Moon."

"It's such a different relationship; it's like entirely original," Kristen said. "They're light; they actually have fun with each other. Edward and Bella are always so strange, you know?

In the second film of "The Twilight Saga," Kristen's character delves into a deep depression when Edward leaves her.

"Only [Jacob] can bring her out of that rut. Like, she literally is going to die; she's going to stop eating and be done. And the only thing that brings her out of it is this lightness [he] brings," she continued.

And, of course, Taylor's character, Jacob Black, undergoes quite a transformation himself in the movie – changing into a werewolf.

"Jacob's thing is he actually can transform in midair," Taylor tells MTV. "So I got to do these really cool stunts where I got to actually run and then they'd hook me up on wires and I'd jump up in the air and then I'd come to a jolting stop and have to hang there for a bit. That's what you saw in the trailer, actually. That was a lot of fun. I get to do a lot of cool stunts in this one."

Out of all the movies in Stephenie Meyer's series, "New Moon" intimidated Kristen the most.

"I think it's the one book in the series that I was intimidated by — in a good way," she explained. "That's the best feeling to start a movie with. But probably, my favorite line in the book is when I have to say to [Jacob], 'It's him; it's always been him!' Like, I have to say that. Yeah, it killed me, it killed me.

"Yeah, and just like everything in our movie, it's such a heightened version of reality," she continued. "It's like, people don't just break up [in "The Twilight Saga"] — they break up and it literally kills you. It's not like you just say, 'Oh, I'm really depressed and crying.' Everything is supposed to be a fantasy version of that. So I always had a really hard time figuring out, 'Am I doing enough? Do I look like I'm going to die?'"

Meanwhile, Taylor's favorite scene in "New Moon" is where he gets to put his foot down (or should we say, paw).

"My favorite [scene] was — well, we call it the breakup scene — but it's the scene right after she sees me shirtless and I've cut off my hair, all different for the first time. I have to tell her that we can't be friends anymore," he said.

"He attempts to break up with me," Kristen adds, "but it doesn't work out."
