Twilight Saga’s Kristen Stewart: ‘The sex scene in ‘Breaking Dawn’ is so steamy we had to have it re-cut’

Star opens up about getting down and dirty with real life partner Robert Pattinson

Twilight star Kristen Stewart has revealed a raunchy sex scene with onscreen partner Robert Pattinson in the forthcoming movie ‘Breaking Dawn’ had to be cut because it was too steamy.

The lead actress who plays Bella in the Vampire movies is dating lead star Pattinson [Edward Cullen] in real life. She said the first time the couple filmed the scene, things got so heated that it had to be completely re-cut.

She told Glamour magazine:

It was so weird, it didn’t even feel like we were doing a Twilight film. I was like, ‘Bella! What are you doing? Wow! What is happening here?!’ It was very surreal. We [originally] got rated R. They re-cut it.

The saga’s first sex scene received some heavy editing before the rating was eventually reduced to PG-13.

Meanwhile, The Joy Formidable are among a host bands who feature on The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1 soundtrack which is out on November 8. The movie will follow in UK cinemas on November 18.

It is the first part of the fourth and final installment of the Vampire series. The second part is due for release in late 2012.
