Robert Pattinson (photos) reckons he knows why the Twilight series is so successful: it’s because they’re super sexy…without showing actual sex. It’s all in the innuendo, apparently. Can’t disagree there. You know you’ve been wondering whether they’re going to show Bella and Edward getting it on in Breaking Dawn (er, in both the Breaking Dawns), right? Or is it just us.
In an interview with Nightline he said, “[Fans] like that moment before [sex] … the kind of tipping point before it goes over. I mean, everybody likes that. That’s the best part, for a relationship.” He also spoke about how it’s important not to stray into being too old-fashioned. The fans need to see something! Eclipse has Bella and Edward most-def getting close… but not too close! He stated, “If there was a hard and fast decision by both [Bella and Edward] saying, ‘Yeah we’re going to remain virgins our entire lives, it’s never going to happen,’ I don’t think it would be as popular a series.”
Yeah yeah, you know exactly how to keep us hooked!
