Peter Facinelli: Vampire Contacts Were 'Awkward'

"The Twilight Saga: New Moon" star Peter Facinelli had a difficult time shooting scenes with fake contacts.

The Cullens are a family of vampires and their eyes are supposed to look gold, so the actors wore contacts for the film.

"It's like looking through a pin-hole," the actor, who plays Dr. Carlisle Cullen, tells "Extra" at a screening of "Everybody's Fine" in NYC Thursday.

Since the contacts affected the stars' peripheral vision, Facinelli says the scenes were "awkward."
