Twilight’s Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart arrived right on schedule in Brazil’s party capital — Rio de Janeiro to shoot the key honeymoon scene for Breaking Dawn. They join a bevy of stars already there on various “work” related projects.
Taylor Lautner, who plays werewolf Jacob, was also rumored to be making the trip, but didn’t take the same flight as Rob and Kristen, who traveled together.
Brazilian celebrity magazine, Revista Quem, reported that Pattinson, Stewart and Lautner would arrive in Brazil today (Friday, Nov. 5) to begin filming scenes, and they appeared like clockwork.
Fans snapped their photo in the New Orleans airport as they headed for departure. Judging by the photos they flew commercial, as they almost always do.

Sergio Sá Leitãohad, President of Summit Entertainment’s Brazilian partner, RioFilme’s earlier confirmed their planned arrival and then backed off.
After saying that Rob and Kristen would be in Rio, he later tweeted that reports of their imminent arrival are “baseless.”
But he was clearly trying to keep rabid fans at bay.
Revista Quem (“About Magazine” in English) seems to have the full itinerary for the “Breaking Dawn” shoot.
It reports that the historic Lapa District in downtown Rio will be closed to the public on Sunday (Nov. 7) for initial shooting on “Breaking Dawn.”
From there, Rob, Kristen and crew will reportedly travel to Paraty, south of Rio and film in the Paraty-Mirim area.
Between shoots, they will hole up at the Copacabana Palace hotel, which is used to celebrity guests and has massive gates and enough security to protect the Queen.
Filming will supposedly wrap, sometime between November 12 and 15.
The magazine is pretty tapped in to Rio happenings.
Revista Quem is owned by the Brazilian conglomerate O Globo, which also owns one of Rio’s top daily newspapers and Brazil’s no. 1 television network.
Among others making the Rio scene, Black Eyed Peas hottie Fergie was spotted on a Rio beach yesterday with husband Josh Duhamel.
Josh is there filming “Fast and the Furious 5” while Fergie and the Peas were playing in concert a few hundred miles south in Florianópolis.
Paul Walker, Vin Diesel, Ludacris, Tyrese and Jordana Brewster, who was also spotted on Rio’s famed Copacabana beach, are also there filming “Fast and the Furious.”
