Despite the fact that the last Twilight movie came out like, three years ago, people still want to talk to Kristen Stewart about it. More specifically, they want to talk about THAT sex scene – the ONE time Bella and Edward finally get down to business after thousands upon thousands of pages and all hell breaks loose. Basically he leaves bruises all over her body and she ends up pregnant with a half demon spawn that nearly kills her before ripping its way out of her body, leaving Edward to finally consent to turning her into a vampire (as she wished all along) in order to save her life. And yes, I read the books – THEY WERE SO GOOD (in that “holy shit, how can this be so awful?” kinda way). So what was it like filming that pivotal scene? “Grotesquely uncomfortable” and absolute “agony”, apparently.
From Harper’s Bazaar UK:
“On Twilight we had to do the most epic sex scene of all time,” says the actress of the infamous rough-and-tumble romp, which left their character’s bedroom in shambles. “It had to be transcendent and otherworldly, inhuman, better sex than you can possibly ever imagine, and we were like, ‘How do we live up to that?’ It was agony. Which sucks, because I wanted it to be so good.”
Well… I mean, what did she expect? It’s a book about a damn vampire shooting his immortal fluids into his barely-out-of-high school girlfriend who seems to have no sense of self outside of him. It was hardly going to change the world.
As for KStew’s thoughts on nudity…
“I just even question when a fairly established actress finally does a scene on a movie when she shows her boobs and she hasn’t done it up until this moment,” Stewart says. “And maybe she only did it for the prestigious part and it’s okay for this time because it’s classy, and I’m like, ‘Oh God, thank you for revealing to the world your treasure.’ ”
I don’t… really get it? I mean, I do get what she’s saying, but for someone who’s apparently a self-described feminist and rants on about Hollywood’s sexism problem, I think she’s focusing her criticism in the wrong area, but whatevs.
Here are some other pics from the shoot of Kristen looking pretty, though wholly uncomfortable:
