The pressure of staying within the parameters of a PG-13 rating led actor Robert Pattinson to later describe his sex scenes with on-again girlfriend Kristen Stewart in Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 2 (out in November) as “ridiculous” in a recent interview on Australia’s “The Kyle and Jackie O Show.”
Here’s what he said:
“It’s just ’cause you’re kind of shooting for this to be PG-13, so it was kind of trying to think of inventive ways to make something sexy,” he said. “It also can’t be just a normal sex scene, it’s supposed to be about, like, the greatest vampire sex you’ve ever had, so a lot of it was just close-ups of me and Kristen’s faces. But there was no one else there, so it was trying to give a face of ecstasy in a tight frame … we were just sitting there by ourselves. The cameraman was laughing at this.”
That backs up what director Bill Condon said last year about keeping the first Breaking Dawn film toned down:
“It’s almost clinical the kind of strict guidelines [the MPAA] have about anything that appears to be — how do I put it delicately? That appears to be, let’s call it thrusting. In fact, you know, it was so much more about romance than it was about hot-and-heavy action, so it was a very kind of simple adjustment to make.”
Personally, we’d love to see some R-rated action from Bella and Edward. But we guess that’s what Fifty Shades of Grey is for, seeing as how it was originally inspired by Twilight.
