Kristen Stewart Talks ‘Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 2’ Sex Scenes
Twilight: Breaking Dawn — Part 2, the final installment in the Twilight saga, features Kristen Stewart, who plays the series’ star, Bella, as a vampire, which means she has super-strength, lightning speed, and a whole lot of sex with her new hubby, Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson). While the scenes may be a necessary component to the film, for her part, Stewart finds the whole process of filming terribly uncomfortable.
The film’s scenes rely heavily on close-ups of the actors’ faces, and in an interview with Conan O’Brien, Stewart used self-deprecating humor to mock the intense scenes in which she is featured.
“It’s nice to see your own reflection while you’re making shcm-exy faces …. It’s aboslutey absurd actually,” Stewart told O’Brien.
“It’s got me now thinking I want to shoot myself, just my face,” O’Brien then said.
“I want to shoot myself,” Stewart replied deadpan.
Breaking Dawn, Part 2 has been generating considerable buzz, not only for Stewart’s frisky scenes, but for its ramped-up action set pieces and twist ending. This last look into the series also stars Twilight staple Taylor Lautner as the werewolf Jacob, who is oft-shirtless as per usual, as well as Michael Sheen, Kellan Lutz, Dakota Fanning, and many, many more. The last four Twilight films have accounted for over $2.5 billion in worldwide box office grosses, with Breaking Dawn — Part 1 pulling in over $700 million. Early tracking suggests Breaking Dawn–Part 2 could eclipse (get it?) this hefty haul.
