Robert Pattinson (“Edward Cullen”) is featured in the December issue of Total Film Magazine, and one of the topics of his new interview with the publication was the lovemaking scene(s) in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1.
According to him, making those movie moments for Breaking Dawn was a bit difficult because the book itself offered little guidance in the way of details.
“It’s funny . . . People talk about sex scenes in the book, but there aren’t actually any. It’s all in people’s imagination. They’re like ‘It’s so hardcore,’ but it always fades to black. It just shows bits of the aftermath . . . You have to show something! . . . You can’t fade to black in the movie because people would go insane!” he explained.
Indeed, you cannot, and since skipping it was not the approach of the filmmakers on this one (because that would be some form of moviemaking suicide), Pattinson also talked about his concern over fan reactions to these Breaking Dawn love scenes. “It’s strange trying to do a singular event which everyone is expecting. At the end of the day, watching other people having sex is never going to be that spectacular. Hopefully it’ll be good. There’s so much hype. You’re like ‘God, I hope this lives up to it.’”
Yes, hopefully so.
