After meeting and greeting throngs of fans waiting for hours outside the San Diego Convention Center, the stars of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2, Ashley Greene, Kellan Lutz, Nikki Reed and more, headed to Hard Rock Hotel’s Float Lounge to party.
While some (like Peter Facinelli and new dad Jackson Rathbone) skipped the red carpet, newlyweds Reed and hubby Paul McDonald walked together, and the former Idol contestant waited patiently, sipping a drink while his wife did interviews. When she finished, he snaked his arm around her waist, then Reed gave her hubby’s butt a little pinch before heading inside the party, where the couple mingled with fellow guests.
Lutz seemingly started the night with dessert: he was spotted snacking on frozen yogurt inside a VIP cabana, though he later grabbed a slider from a waitress’s tray.
Facinelli and his on-screen wife, Elizabeth Reaser, spent the night hanging out together and drinking. She let loose, draping her legs over her male companion, posing for Facinelli’s camera and later climbing atop one of the club’s raised fire pits. He didn’t manage to lure any other party guests up there, though he certainly tried, an observer says.
