Sex scenes in new Twilight movie Breaking Dawn not as wild as new baby birth?
Twihards, brace yourselves. Breaking Dawn, the latest in the Twilight franchise, is ramped to be the most gory and visceral film yet in the series. While we’ve heard that the sex scenes filmed for Breaking Dawn are going to be, shall we say, titillating, Kristin Stewart and Robert Pattinson have confirmed that the birth scenes may have an even bigger impact on the audience.
Director Bill Condon told Entertainment Weekly:
“We shot everything — whether it’s the lovemaking or the childbirth — as potent and powerful as it can be. It will be interesting to see whether there will be people who think it too disturbing for this universe.”
And Kristin Stewart wishes it were even more gory. Regarding the PG-13 issue, the Huffington Post quotes Stewart as saying:
“It’s funny because when [the PG-13 issue] comes up, everybody thinks it’s all about the sex. The birth is really effective, and I’ve heard it really hits you in the face. But what it could have been? It could have been shocking and grotesque, because that’s how it was written in the book. I would have loved to have been puking up blood.”
But in spite of the darkness and gore that will be a hallmark of Breaking Dawn Parts One and Two (the first to hit theaters November 18, and the second to arrive about a year later), Kristin Stewart also says the wedding scene is very powerful. “And it was just so perfect for me in that moment. It was so emotional in such a real way,” she told Entertainment Weekly. In a real way, hm? Maybe she is fantasizing about the real thing with Robert Pattinson and not just the Bella and Edward mock wedding.
For his own take on the sex scene, according to the Huffington Post, Robert Pattinson told MTV, “It’s always awkward in a way if you’re doing it with anybody,” Pattinson told MTV. “It really depends on how it’s staged and stuff. It’s like doing Twister.” Doing it. Maybe he’s just playing down the role because the real Kristin Stewart means so much more to him. We can hope.
