Vampire bed scenes aren’t that exciting and fun as it looks; just ask Rob and Kristen.
The Twilight leading lady, 22, revealed the not-so-sexy reality behind Bella Swan-Cullen’s most anticipated love scenes with Edward Cullen. She explained:
“[The director] Bill [Condon] kept saying that he wanted to make this one feel like you’re very much inside of the experience. Like you’re there, you’re sort of a part of it, which is odd. But to do that we had to look directly into the camera instead of at each other.”
She also shared that the direction of Condon made some of their moments on-set a tad bit awkward. She exclaimed with a laugh:
“It was awful! I was like, ‘Bill, you’re depriving me of this experience. We’ve been waiting for vampire sex! What are you doing?!’”
In another interview, the 26-year-old Pattinson also exposed his biggest dilemma when filming the scenes: the whole of the cast and crew just standing around watching them do their thing. He shared:
“Vampire sex is supposed to be the greatest sex in the world, and then everyone turns up on set and they’re like, ‘OK, well, uh, what’s your thing?’ It’s, like, completely crazy!”
