Full Sex Scene Could Be Featured On DVD

The sex scene saga is just one of many Twilight controversies, both on and off the set of Breaking Dawn -- Part 1. Now devoted fans of the franchise could get a sneak peek at extended footage of Edward and Bella's honeymoon that ended up on the cutting room floor.

Now this is what we call a "special feature!" Twihards may get the chance to view a very grown-up version of Edward and Bella's long-awaited sex scene once The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn -- Part 1 hits retailers' shelves on DVD.

Bill Condon, the Academy Award-winning lensman behind the number one movie in America, set off buzz around the water cooler when he removed a "really intense" sex scene between supposed real-life lovers (hint, nudge, wink) Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart (in character as Mr. and Mrs. Edward Cullen) initially featured in the first installment of the two-part Twilight finale. The first cut of Breaking Dawn was given an R-rating for what Condon described as "thrusting" during Edward and Bella's simulated lovemaking. The director in turn removed the raunchy scene in order to secure the current and more favorable PG-13-rating.

"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," he told MTV News of the move.

But Melissa Rosenberg, the screenwriter who adapted all of Stephenie Meyer's Twilight novels for the big screen, told the network that she hopes the extended version of the honeymoon sex scene will make its way onto Breaking Dawn's DVD release. According to Rosenberg, "there was a whole section before the wedding with Charlie, Renee and Carlisle and Edward, kind of a back-and-forth, but it just slowed everything down. But there are some nice things in there."

Rosenberg added: "...These are things that will show up someday."

By show of hands, how many Twihards would be interested in checking out the more explicit version of Edward and Bella's lovefest? Don't be bashful now. Show yourselves!

My grandkids enjoyed the Twilight books and I did as well. I admired Stephanie for having her hero take a 'marriage before abstinence is best' attitude no matter how "old fashioned" it might be. I saw the movie with grandkids ranging from age 6 to 16. The younger ones thought is was funny that Edward was tearing up the bed whereas the older teens (who know everything anyway and have to put up with adults who know nothing) had to use their imaginations. As far as the scenes that met the floor of the cutting room, if the producers wanted to print an "R" rated version with these missing scenes at the end of the movie after the credits, I would not have a problem with it. At least they could send the younger children to bed or out to play so that they would not be exposed to the out takes. I for one still believe that intimacy between two adults is not a spectator sport.

IM REALLY HOPING TO SEE THE REAL VERSION OF THE MOVIE (THE RATED R VERSION) IT REALLY GETS UNDER MY SKIN THEY CHANGED IT. I WAS 18 WHEN I READ ALL THE BOOKS. AND WAS EXCITED WHEN THEY CAME OUT WITH THE MOVIES. IT REALLY MAKES ME MAD THAT NOW THEY'RE SAYING IT WAS MADE FOR THE YOUNGER CROWD. I BET MORE PPL MY AGE WAS READING THE BOOKS BEFORE THE MOVIES CAME OUT. AND AFTER WATCHING THE MOVIES THEN SOME OF THE YOUNGER CROWD LIKED THE TWILIGHT SAGA. I BET MOST OF THE KIDS THAT LIKE THE MOVIES CANT/HAVENT EVEN READ THE BOOKS. THEY SHOULDNT HAVE TO CHANGE ANYTHING IN THE MOVIES. IT SHOULD BE JUST AS IT WAS IN THE BOOK. IF THAT MEANS LITTLE KIDS CANT WATCH IT AT THE MOVIES, SO SORRY. IF THEY REALLY WANNA SEE IT THEY COULD WAIT TILL IT CAME ON DVD AND THE PARENT COULD DECIDE FROM THERE.
