“The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1” is coming to theaters… only 15 more days until the world finally sees the highly anticipated steamy sex scene between Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart) and Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson), which was originally so hot and heavy the movie earned an R rating.
Director Bill Condon finally speaks out about the infamous sex scenes to calm down Twi-hards, claiming those scenes, which were re-cut to fit the PG-13 rating, are more about romance and less about the physical aspect of Bella and Edward’s relationship.
“It’s almost clinical the kind of strict guidelines [the MPAA] have about anything that appears to be — how do I put it delicately?” Bill asked MTV News. “That appears to be, let’s call it thrusting. In fact, you know, it was so much more about romance than it was about hot-and-heavy action, so it was a very kind of simple adjustment to make.”
When asked about how uncomfortable it was to direct such an intimate scene, Bill confessed that it became quite easy and fun because Robert and Kristen already knew each other well and were pretty comfortable.
“It’s probably most weird for them I would imagine,” Bill said with a laugh. “The thing is they are so comfortable with each other so they made the whole thing — it was kind of fun.”
Kristen would most likely disagree. The 21 year-old actress told Glamour UK, the sex scene was weird and surreal because her character gets really wild in bed. We cannot wait to see THAT.
“The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1” hits theaters on November 18, 2011.
