Robert Pattinson Scared of Sex Scene

Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart in Breakin Dawn - Part 1Robert Pattinson was "scared" when he had to film a sex scene with girlfriend Kristen Stewart

The 25-year-old star and the brunette beauty performed a raunchy scene in which they break the bed in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1, and the actor admits he felt more distracted looking for his cue rather than romantic.

"I've never done a sex scene where it's kind of scary because you think something is going to fall on you! There was a whole stunt set up with three guys, who do all the explosions and things, all lying under the bed. I spent the whole time looking at them for a signal. It was funny, though!"

The British actor has taken Kristen to the UK on a number of occasions, but the US-born actress is "always amazed" at how many people go to the pub during their lunchtime. "I probably spend more time in the UK than Los Angeles, but I've been so busy traveling with work that I don't really know where I'm going to be based full-time yet. She's always amazed by the fact that it is totally acceptable to go to a pub at lunchtime over here. I don't even do that."


Jennifer Lawrence: Hunger Games Stars Hotter than Twilight Actors

Jennifer Lawrence in The Hunger GamesJennifer Lawrence says her male Hunger Games co-stars are "hotter" than the Twilight Saga hunks.

The actress - who plays 16-year-old Katniss Everdeen in the eagerly anticipated novel adaptation of the Suzanne Collins trilogy - admitted Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner from the vampire film franchise are good looking but says her loyalties lie with her co-stars Liam Hemsworth and Josh Hutcherson.

Joking about a Twilight / Hunger Games feud, Jennifer told Access Hollywood, "Since the feud is now out in the open I'm going to have to go with our guys as hotter than the stars of Twilight. Obviously Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner are gorgeous but I have to go with my boys."

Robert Pattinson’s Alter Ego Battle

Robert Pattinson in Bel AmiRobert Pattinson admits his Twilight character would not approve of his Bel Ami alter-ego.

The Hollywood heartthrob is famed for playing Edward Cullen in the vampire franchise and he admits his character in his latest film, Georges Duroy, couldn't be more different from one-woman man Edward.

"I guess there's something quite fun about Bel Ami, going from Edward to playing some guy who pretty much abuses women to get money out of them. Edward so wouldn't approve - and I thought that was a funny irony. But the story, independently, is great, so I only thought about the irony afterwards."

Robert also says George has no redeeming features about him as he doesn't care who he hurts: "He just doesn't have a conscience. He's content to do nothing and thinks everything should just be given to him. But if someone slights him, or directs any insult at him, the most overwhelming energy grabs him and he turns into the absolute devil. It's like in Giant, when James Dean builds the entire empire to say, 'F**k you.' He's exactly like that but without any redeeming characteristics. The whole story is these people trying to beat him down into remorse, and just as he's about to touch it, something good happens to him again."


Michelle Trachtenberg Could Have Been Bella Swan

Michelle TrachtenbergBuffy the Vampire Slayer alum Michelle Trachtenberg recently revealed that she could have portrayed Bella Swan in Twilight, had it not been for scheduling conflicts.

Trachtenberg, known for her roles in the vampire series as well as Gossip Girl, opened up about the opportunity: "There was definitely interest here and there because there's only so few pale girls in Hollywood... I guess schedules never worked out."

She was, however, quick to point out that she doesn't have any regrets about turning down the role, which later went to Kristen Stewart: "I already have Buffy. I've already done the vampire thing."

When asked about how her life and career would be different if she had taken the part, she would rather not think about it altogether: "You're not living in the moment and you're looking negatively at what you're doing now."

Kristen Stewart to Play Snow White

Kristen StewartStorybooks and Kristen Stewart are a perfect match. The dark-haired beauty is filming her last Twilight film even as we pine away for the release of Breaking Dawn, Part I, but the end of Bella is just the beginning for K-Stew. The actress has signed on to play Snow White, another raven-locked storybook heroine.

Stewart will play one of the titular roles in Universal’s Snow White and the Huntsman, one of two Snow White movies currently in the works.

Producer Palak Patel is hoping to set a new tone for the old fairy tale with the casting decision. She explained it all on Twitter: “Clearly, [Kristen Stewart] isn’t right for the upbeat, song-happy Disney version of the character, but this movie is going to be dark and gritty.”

Then, it sounds like K-Stew really is the perfect choice. Stay up-to-date on this and other movie news when you follow FilmCrunch on Twitter.
