At its heart, The Twilight Saga has always been about sex. Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson, know that I do not blame you for this in the slightest. Edward, being the fictional creation of a Mormon author, insisted on waiting until after they were married.
The sex scene in Twilight: Breaking Dawn - Part 1 has been cut down so the movie can be given a 12A, it has been revealed. The British Board of Film Classification advised producers to edit the "graphic sight of Edward thrusting while he lies on top of Bella" to avoid the film being given a 15 certificate. As a result, the film was classified '12A'.
The former lovers and co-stars had an intimate scene in the saga but it wasn't as comfortable as you might expect. You might assume an actor filming a sex scene with their real-life partner would be things easier - but Kristen Stewart has insisted that's not the case. The Twilight Saga actress had to get intimate with co-star and then-boyfriend Robert Pattinson during the fourth instalment of the blockbuster in Which sucks, because I wanted it to be so good.
One of the many reasons why sparkling beacon of male perfection Edward Cullen is so reticent to ravage his love Bella Swan in the Twilight movies is because he doesn't want to hurt her. Vampires with their super strength and all make intimacy of the penetrative kind complicated. And, for that matter, rather dangerous — in the moment, even, before the whole soul-draining vampire baby comes to term.
With a fan base dominated by teenagers, the final chapter of "The Twilight Saga" may elicit a lot of gasps and screams from the audience. And it'll have nothing to do with blood sucking or werewolf violence. Talking to Entertainment Weekly"Breaking Dawn" director Bill Condon said that he isn't whitewashing the graphic sex and birth scenes in the big screen adaptation of the epic novel.
If Kristen Stewart made any mention of Robert Pattinson in news stories linked to her the sole condition of a drinking game, she'd be on a waiting list for a new body, never mind a liver. The two actors made a generation of teenage girls swoon when they starred opposite each other in the Twilight saga as Bella Swan and Edward Cullen, a sullen female human and sparkly vampire abstaining from love-making respectively. In an added bonus for the fandom, Pattinson and Stewart dated, until shortly before the release of the final installment in the franchise, Breaking Dawn: Part 2.
Registered in Ireland: The Hollywood heartthrob - who recently rekindled his romance with the actress after she cheated on him with director Rupert Sanders - says shooting the intimate moments between their respective characters Edward Cullen and Bella Swan in the vampire movie was not easy because they had to look sexy while still making the movie suitable for a younger audience. Speaking about the scene in 'Twilight Saga: Break Dawn - Part 2', Robert said: "The sex scene in this one is pretty ridiculous as well, you're shooting stuff to be PG, you're trying to think of things to make it sexy, it's supposed to be about the greatest vampire sex you've ever had. You try and give a face of ecstasy; guy's faces I don't think are really designed to do that.
Happy tenth anniversary, Twilight! In looking back on the films, it becomes impossible not to see all the backwards notions around sex and virginity the films and books were feeding our romance-crazed young minds. Nothing good, certainly.
