Those pillow-biting sex scenes are about to get even hotter now that Kristen Stewart’s onscreen alter ego Bella Swan is a full-blown, cold-blooded vampire in the final installment of the Twilight saga.
But if it were up to Robert Pattinson, who plays Bella’s husband Edward Cullen, the bedroom action would get even wilder.
“I would put [the sex scene] the last day of the schedule,” he told BBC Radio 1 of his fantasy turn in the director’s chair. “[I’d] say, ‘Listen, I’ve got to have a closed set. It’s really, really important. No one can see the monitors or anything,’ and then just put like a walrus in or something.”
Jokes aside, it’s not so sexy puckering up in front of the cameras.
“Kissing is harder than love-making scenes, I think,” Pattinson, 26, says. “You can’t kiss like normally you’d kiss.”
Adds The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 star, whose movie arrives in theaters Friday: “You got a one in three chance of smashing someone’s tooth out.”
