Michael Welch may play Kristen Stewart‘s suitor in the smash-hit Twilight series, but in real life he’s devoted to gal-pal Marissa Lefton.
Interviewed on Film Festival Radio, the actor dishes about his long-term relationship.
“Our five-year anniversary is coming up,” he tells host Janice Malone. “March 8 is our technical anniversary. We dated three or four months first before we, like, made it official.”
Michael—who reprises his role as Mike Newton in The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, opening June 30—also describes his fantasy date for marking the occasion with Marissa.
“After five years you don’t always really put on the old romance after that long period of time. But I’ll try to let her know how special she is to me all the time,” he says.
“As far as something to do, we’re going to Paris. I’ll have to brainstorm and come up with something really special for Paris.
“Maybe a hot-air balloon while I sprinkle petals all over her face and feed her chocolates and then I’ll paint chocolate all over her body and then get a can of whipped cream with strawberries while we’re over Paris at sunset while in our hot-air balloon.
“I’m gonna make a call or two to get that into motion.”
