The stars, who play Edward Cullen and Bella Swan in the fourth installment of the “Twilight” series, believe too much was cut from the scenes. As a result they may not accurately reflect the graphic book details.
Pattinson, Stewart and Taylor Lautner all told Entertainment Weekly that they were disappointed that more thrusting, moans and even “butt cracks” failed to make it into the movie.
The scene, along with the birth of Edward and Bella’s baby were the most anticipated and talked about leading up to the movie’s debut today (Nov. 18)
Director Bill Condon said he pushed the envelope on the scenes to adhere as closely as possible to the book without jeopardizing the movie’s PG-13 rating. The consequence would have been an “R” rating that would have limited the audience.
“I wanted more from both of those,” Kristen said.
“[The birth scene] is what I’m really disappointed about,” Kristen added.
“In the book, Bella is screaming, ‘NOOOO!’ And I did it like that, crazy and Exorcist-like.
“I was going for this weird mix of turning into the most feral mother you can imagine … I was a nutcase — an absolute nutcase.”
In the film? Nada.
“In the book, you don’t see the actual sex, but they talk about it afterwards and it’s intense as hell,” she said.
“[Shooting the scene] wasn’t the full experience because it was so fragamented. We did little individual shots of his face, my face, his hands. We didn’t really do that scene.”
Rob also saw some disturbing edits in the final version.
“There was a bit too much butt crack, I think,” he said on the Ellen DeGeneres show.
“They didn’t cut the shot or whatever, they just cut the crack out,” he laughed.
“How do you cut the crack out?” asked Ellen.
“They just painted over it,” Pattinson replied.
The movie, which also stars Kellan Lutz, Ashley Greene, Nikki Reed and Peter Facinelli, is in theaters now.
