He added to People: 'I love them with all my heart. I am praying that we can get through this together.'

Rupert also commented on Pattinson’s presence while shooting the film, joking: 'Yeah, there was occasionally a guy in the shadows in a baseball cap on set.
'Rob and Kristen are both very down-to-earth, very nice people. We all became very close friends.'
