Sex scene in Breaking Dawn originally 'got rated R'
It's that time of year again when Kristen Stewart has to do her awkward interviews. And the one with British Glamour is going to be a real heartbreaker for Twilight fans. See, the evil censors demanded a re-cut of the pillow-tearing scene cut in order for the movie to qualify for a PG13.
"Kristen Stewart has revealed that the sex scene she filmed with Robert Pattinson in Breaking Dawn - Part 1 was originally so explicit, it was rated R (the equivalent of a UK film rating 15). Speaking exclusively in the December issue of GLAMOUR, she said of the steamy role: "It was so weird, it didn't even feel like we were doing a Twilight film. I was like, 'Bella! What are you doing? Wow! What is happening here?!' "It was very surreal. We [originally] got rated R. They re-cut it." But that wasn't the only scene that was a little strange for K-Stew. The wedding scene, she explained, saw her placed under strict observation in order to protect details of the dress from being released. "I had to be shrouded in secrecy the entire two days of filming," she said. "It was crazy… I was on full lockdown, as if I was wearing millions of dollars' worth of diamonds."
People has a bit more: "Though the actress –, who's currently shooting Snow White and the Huntsman – certainly isn't a fan of such attention, she seems to take it in stride. "People can say whatever they want," she says, calling the interest "totally understandable. But when it's personal to you, it's like your life becomes a product, and I'm repelled by that. I don't like to give away gems that people are gonna be like, 'Oh my God!' So I'll always just shrug it off. In fact, I always find it kind of funny, and not just with Rob." Only 17 when she was first cast as Bella Swan in the Twilight saga, Stewart says she's finally starting to feel comfortable doing interviews, but that it's "a fair assessment" to say she often comes off as shy and nervous in public. "I was young, not expecting it and trying way too hard to be 'not fake,' " she says. And as far as the devotion from her fans, Stewart says it's something she can relate to. "There are definitely people that kind of lose it and get very emotional," she says. "But recently, I met [musician] Jenny Lewis, and I had the most ridiculous experience. I was so embarrassing, I couldn't speak. It was eye-opening, actually."
And, finally, Us has this: "When Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart tied the knot in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1, they may have accidentally sealed the deal for real. "The wedding scene's funny because we used a real priest. So technically we are already married because he did all the things you would do in a normal ceremony," Pattinson, 25, joked during a press conference in Stockholm, Sweden Friday. "So we don't have a civil union in law, but I guess in the church we are actually married." The comment was surprising, given that Stewart, 21, only recently (and accidentally) confirmed her years-long relationship with Pattinson during an interview with British GQ. Pattinson, who was joined by costar Ashley Greene at the press conference, also spoke candidly about the film's bed-breaking, pillow-biting honeymoon romp. "The sex scenes were difficult. The set was crazy and you have about 20 people in the room and someone saying things like: 'No, Bella would not have made that noise. Can we do it again?'" "It was very charged, but a very tender and sentimental scene. It's not a scene from the book, so everyone was nervous about doing it right," he explained. "A ton of other people were nervous. And, Kristen and I were both worried about the shape of our bodies would look on camera. We felt vulnerable." Pattinson added that he likes how Stewart's character "is the one who initiates the sex. It's a different move and I like that it's not so predictable. Bella is already pushing for it in the movie and it's Edward that seems scared." "I've never been able to relate to that fear of sex or sexuality. It's funny that all three movies portray sex as something scary and then, when they have sex in the fourth movie, they have a child with really rather devastating consequences," he said. "I'm not sure what they are trying to say. . .never have sex with anyone ever?"
