The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1 opens in wide release Nov. 14 and in just one week Twilight fans will be able to catch Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart get very intimate on the big screen. Robert Pattinson gave his fans a glimpse of what they'll experience when he discussed the details of Breaking Dawn sex scenes to Parade Magazine.
Pattinson revealed that filming the highly anticipated sex scenes was difficult for him on a variety of levels. From a production standpoint, Pattinson explained filming scenes in the ocean was especially tricky given the size and strength of the waves.
"We show romance in the bedroom and also in a nice ocean setting. It was impossible in the waves. We were trying to kiss each other and we misjudged the strength of the tide and so it was absolutely one of the most difficult things I've ever had to do in my life. There were big waves and Kristen and I were standing on boxes tied down to the shore. God, it was absolutely impossible. One thing I have to say, we shot those scenes in the Caribbean, so the water was warm."
But who cares about such technical challenges? Fans want to know about the chemistry between him and recently confirmed girlfriend Kristen Stewart. Was it as good for him as it was for her? Apparently not, as Robert Pattinson expressed he felt a huge amount of pressure given the success of the series, and it ended up being a bit awkward.
"I think the more comfortable you are with each other, the harder it gets to do any kind of really intense relationship scene. You're kind of thinking, 'I don't want to embarrass myself in front of this person. I know what she's thinking now,' so it becomes ridiculous after awhile. Watching other people have sex is never going to be that spectacular anyway. It's a strange thing when there's so much hype about it. You are like, 'God, I hope this lives up to it.'"
It's no secret Pattinson bulked up for the role as Bella Swan's husband — he sports a six-pack — in Breaking Dawn Part 1. Pattinson admitted to Parade he isn't too keen on working out like co-star Taylor Lautner, but said he felt he owed it to his legion of fans.
"There are so many descriptions in the book of Edward's statuesque body — it's all made of marble, blah, blah, blah. I managed to get through the entire series without taking my shirt off the whole time. I was like, 'Nah, I'm not taking it off ever, and I'm not working out!' Then, when we did Breaking Dawn, I thought, 'It's the last one, I might as well.' So I kind of worked out to bulk up a little for those scenes with my shirt off. I stopped literally the day afterwards. I find it very boring to work out."
