Kellan Lutz Talks about the 'Birth Scene" in Breaking Dawn. Maggie Grace is Irina

Let the countdown begin. Cameras are pretty close to rolling on Breaking Dawn.

"We start sometime in October and go all the way through to late April," Kellan Lutz says. "I just did a [wardrobe fitting] and a contact lenses test."

As for that much anticipated, hard-to-imagine birthing scene...

Lutz cracked, "I think they should show it and have Emmett in the background laughing."

Joking aside, Lutz says he knows what director Bill Condon has planned for the potentially gory sequence. "I love the way that they're showing it," he said. "I really thought that was going to be really a tough thing to show."

Screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg recently told us the birth of baby Renesmee won't necessarily be gruesome. "I don't think it's about the amount of blood you show," she said. "It's about the intensity of it. It's on their faces. It's all from Bella's point of view when you're seeing what's going. It should feel visceral. I think it's going to be pretty intense." Marc Malkin for E!

Can't wait for Breaking Dawn to start filming. Almost all the Cullens are done with wardrobe fitting...all set for pre-prod and rehearsals. Soon Baton Rouge will be the place to be.

Less gore and more Edward and Bella please.  I can't wait to see Rob and Kristen's look for Edward and Bella for BD. Giddy!
