Robert Pattinson On 'Breaking Dawn' Sex Scene: It's 'Pretty Ridiculous'

How do Bella and Edward follow up their bed-breaking, marriage-consummating, feather-strewn sex scene from "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1"? With love-making that "Twilight" star Robert Pattinson calls "pretty ridiculous."

"It's just because you're kind of shooting stuff to be PG-13," Pattinson, who plays Edward Cullen, said in an interview with Australian talk show hosts Kyle and Jackie O (via Us Weekly). "It's just trying to think of inventive ways to make something sexy. It can't just be a normal sex scene. It's supposed to be about, like, the greatest vampire sex you've ever had."

As Twihards know, Bella (Kristen Stewart) and Edward are the same temperature in "Breaking Dawn Part 2"; following the traumatic birth of the couple's daughter Renesmee, Edward turned Bella into a vampire to save her life.

“We really tried to keep the first 'Breaking Dawn' sweet," actress Kristen Stewart said earlier this year. "It’s about self-discovery. But in the second one we just wanted to be animals. We’re not human any more. How do you do that? We tried and they told us it was R-rated stuff and we were like, yeah, let's stop."

Not that the sex scene in the first part of "Breaking Dawn" was without controversy. Edward winds up breaking their marriage bed during the particularly lively hook-up.

"I wanted to have it as a line so much,” Pattinson told EW last year. “'I bit through all the pillows. Every. Single. One.' And then he’d start crying. [Laughs.] By the way, that’s what he should be ashamed of in the morning. All those beautiful pillows! Egyptian cotton! ‘I ruined this bed!'"

Pattinson was in Australia as part of the "Twilight" press tour, but without Stewart by his side. That led to some pretty heavy brooding, as illustrated here. (Take this, Sad Keanu.)
