Nikki Reed hosts 7-Eleven's birthday (Getty Images)Next week marks the start of Comic-Con in San Diego, and for the first time in several years, there will be no "Twilight" panel in Hall H.
"It makes me super sad, I just realized that," Nikki Reed told omg! while hosting 7-Eleven’s 86th Birthday Beach Bash in Malibu. "I can't believe that chapter of my life has ended. That experience, [and] Comic-Con, have been some of the most memorable. It wasn't that long ago, so it seems strange that it's actually over and so definitive."
That's not to say she doesn't see some of the cast around the neighborhood … literally.
"There's a whole group of us — Jackson [Rathbone], Peter [Facinelli], Kristen [Stewart], Elizabeth Reaser — we all live within a few miles of each other it's so cool," laughed Reed.
Stewart, 23, and Reed, 25, were friends before their "Twilight" days, and although they may not see each other every day, Reed says they have a special bond.
"I'll always love her," she said. "We all developed a kind of bond — it takes real experience and history to create that kind of closeness. I mean, I'm so lucky that I worked with such talented people and wonderful people. I love them."
Reed continued, "We actually were a relatively drama-free cast. People obviously wanted to invent stuff because of the lack of drama. Well, aside, from a few little fights where I told Peter that he wasn't making the right dinner!"
Fortunately, the actress's life with her husband, "American Idol" alum Paul McDonald, is also drama free. The couple is gearing up to go on tour with none other than Hanson.
"I discovered my love for Hanson during [their song] 'Shout it Out.' I thought, 'How did I miss out on them?' What a loser I was," Reed shared. "I wrote them a fan letter. That's how I met them. That's what I do, that's kind of my thing if I like someone's work — a director, musician, writer — I'll write them a letter! I do all my own fan mail, so I know what a great way that is to connect with people."
Reed and McDonald — who married in October 2011 — are looking at possibly buying a place in Nashville where they will record a new album soon. So with everything going on work-wise, are babies on the brain at all?
"I love them, [but] I just have such an understanding and a respect for entering that stage of your life," she noted. "I don't take it lightly. I want to make sure I'm 1000% ready and I'm not sure I am yet. But, if you talk to me in a few months, who knows? Right now, I want to be able to look at Paul and know that we have that freedom of being not parents, especially with music and being on the road."
When that day does come, we definitely foresee playdates with Jackson Rathbone's son!
