VIDEO: Peter Facinelli Dishes on Wigs, Romance and His Many Wives

The Breaking Dawn star jokes with his onscreen wife, Elizabeth Reaser, about their experiences on set


Considering he plays a blood-sucking vampire in the Twilight movies, Peter Facinelli has a surprisingly large number of things in common with his character. He and Carlisle Cullen are both protective fathers, as well as loving husbands.

Luckily, the actor (who's married onscreen to Elizabeth Reaser and offscreen to former 90210 star Jennie Garth) doesn't have a problem with his two women getting along. "I mean... you work with tons of people," Facinelli, 37, tells iVillage. "I've had lots of wives and lots of girlfriends."

In the latest Twilight sequel, Breaking Dawn - Part 1 (in theaters Nov. 18), Facinelli and Reaser's onscreen vampire "son" (Robert Pattinson) marries his human girlfriend (Kristen Stewart) in a lavish, uber-romantic wedding scene. So, which of their Twilight costars is the most romantic off camera?

"That's a tough one. I would say you," Facinelli tells Reaser, 36. "You are very romantic."

"Yeah, I think I try to hide it, but apparently I'm not hiding it very well," Reaser agrees.

Watch our exclusive video interview to find out why Facinelli will definitely not miss wearing a blond wig for his role and how he and Reaser developed a special shorthand during filming.
