This job can be very difficult sometimes. We practically need to file for worker’s comp after this one: We’ve gathered every quote we could — from Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and a couple of special guests — about the Breaking Dawn sex scenes. Beginning with the latest, from KStew in her cover story for Glamour U.K.:
“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.” — Kristen in Glamour U.K.
“You just get lubed up and jump right into it! Everyone always says it about sex scenes in movies — it’s really awkward and blah, blah, blah — but it is! You’re playing Twister.” Robert to MTV News
“The sex scene was never described in the book, so every single person who read it had their own idea in their mind. The entire time we were filming it we thought, ‘We have to make this look spectacular to everyone.’ And we were thinking how to meet people’s expectations. But also you worry about how you’re going to look. … I always tried to think about positions where I could tense the muscles, and suck in my belly.” — Robert in Mexican mag 15 a 20
“In the end, I didn’t feel like we had filmed a sex scene, because we were both so uncomfortable and insecure, and because it’s something very subjective. … There’s times when there’s weird close-ups, and everybody has such high expectations for these scenes.” — Kristen in 15 a 20
“It feels like a real love scene, not necessarily vampire-y, which is good.” — Kristen in Entertainment Weekly
“I wanted to have it as a line so much, ‘I bit through all the pillows. Every. Single. One.’ And then he’d start crying. By the way, that’s what he should be ashamed of in the morning. All those beautiful pillows! Egyptian cotton! ‘I ruined this bed!’ ” — Robert in EW
“It’s kind of interesting, as well, having to do it in the context of PG-13. We had some really interesting ideas about it. … You can’t do blatant. That’s all been done in other stuff anyway, like saying, ‘You just do it really, really fast!’ … It’s kind of incredible. I saw a prelim of it. [Bill] has really, really good ideas for it.” — Robert to MTV News
“We shot everything — whether it’s the lovemaking or the childbirth — as potent and powerful as it can be.” — Robert in EW
“Honestly, fans should get ready for some vampire sex because it is going down. It has been four years in the making, the pent up, sexual aggression, It’s about time!” Jackson Rathbone to Celebuzz
“You know it’s not going to be an R-rated movie, so it’s a great challenge. How do you have the experience without having to be too explicit about it. I think that’s not a hard thing to do. No one wants to see — no one needs to see a full-on sex scene to have the incredibly intense experience that they’re making love, you know? And it’s more romantic. The same with the birth; I think it’s very visceral, but it doesn’t necessarily need close-ups of certain things.” — Bill Condon to Movieline
