Whether or not you have a date this Valentine’s Day, you can live vicariously through the mysterious Lena (Alice Englert) and charming popular kid Ethan (Alden Ehrenreich) of Beautiful Creatures, the latest supernatural teen romance based on a young-adult novel. The two leads visited the EW studio to talk about why their new movie, which is opening today, is not following in Twilight‘s footsteps. Keep watching until the end for some outtakes from their interview, which perfectly captures Englert and Ehrenreich’s easy, goofy chemistry from the film.
