This fall's final installment of "The Twilight Saga" will leave fans feeling bitter-sweet. While excitement bubbles with the anticipation of seeing "Breaking Dawn - Part 2" finally grace the big screen, it wavers a bit with the realization that the cast has put away their golden contacts for good. When MTV News caught up with Kristen Stewart, she told us what her last moments on set were like after filming "Breaking Dawn" reshoots.

Keeping true to KStew's honest nature, it wasn't filled with teary-eyed goodbyes or a final empowering line from the script. Instead, she injured herself. "The very last thing I did was step on a rusty nail," she said, "before a big promotional tour, running barefoot through fake woods."

That's pretty typical Stewart behavior if you ask us.

"I know! It was literally perfect," she continued. "I was like, 'I need to do this on a 'Twilight' set before I had to go wear heels in front of the entire world and have people go, 'She's just ridiculous with the heel situation.' It's like, 'No, I promise you I actually hurt myself again!' "

The filming for both parts of "Breaking Dawn" wrapped back in April 2011, but director Bill Condon revealed reshoots were in store for April 2012. On the film's official Facebook page he wrote, "Rob [Pattinson] and Kristen will be there too, to pop in those gold contacts one last time."

But with the rest of the cast absent and the glitzy wrap parties over, Stewart said the final filming felt a bit anticlimactic. "I also wasn't there on the very last day that Bill finished. I think he had a few pick up shots. When they wrapped me and Rob — you know, people clap for the actors when they wrap because they wrap before everyone else — it felt so ridiculous. We were like, 'Why are you guys clapping right now? Yeah, good on you, too.' " she said as she began clapping and mimicking the confused look on her and Rob's faces.

"I came back to set to do the same for Bill," she continued, "and he was like, 'I have to come back tomorrow to shoot, like, Volturi feet running through snow.' And I was like, 'Oh, damn, bye.' "
