After five Twilight films and plenty of (on camera) makeouts, Kristen Stewart says shooting a sex scene with her former boyfriend was “agony.” The Harper’s Bazaar UK June 2015 cover girl explains the downside to getting busy on set in the latest issue. But before you go into R. Patz defense mode and/or wonder why the hell she wouldn’t love every minute of laying half-naked with him, there’s more to this story:
I only hate [sex scenes] when they’re contrived. That’s when it’s grotesquely uncomfortable. On Twilight we had to do the most epic sex scene of all time. It had to be transcendent and otherworldly, inhuman, better sex than you can possibly ever imagine, and we were like, “How do we live up to that?” It was agony. Which sucks, because I wanted it to be so good.
I mean, we enjoyed watching. Shall I remind you just how “transcendent” these scenes were?
OK, then. Don’t be so hard on yourself, K. Stew.
