Although Robert Pattinson has been a sex symbol to millions of women, Pattinson recently revealed that he was intimidated by his sex scenes with Kristen Stewart in Breaking Dawn.


According to NME, Twilight Saga actor Robert Pattinson told the German website TVMovie.de that he was intimidated by his sex scenes in Breaking Dawn and his body, as compared to that of Taylor Lautner. “I felt very uncomfortable,” said Pattinson.  “No, a fear had rather something to do with Taylor and his fantastic body.  Jacob, as a werewolf, has bared all already in the last two films. And to be honest, I can’t keep up with him.”

Despite how Robert Pattinson felt about his body, Pattinson also revealed that the sex scene with Kristen Stewart was the only time he didn’t feel like a vampire.





International numbers weren’t immediately available, but once they come in, Deathly Hallows 2 should also be able to claim the top launch of all time at the worldwide box office.


The previous record domestically belonged to Warners’ The Dark Knight, which opened to $158.4 million.


Deathly Hallows 2 was a box office giant out of the gate, earning $92.1 million on Friday alone, including a record $43.6 million in midnight shows. The pic grossed another $42.8 million on Saturday, falling only 53%.


Other records set by Deathly Hallows 2 domestically: Largest opening day ever, and the largest opening for the franchise. Previous best was Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 ($125 million).


Sentiment was running high as Potter fans rushed to see the final title in the franchise. They weren’t disappointed, and gave the film a stellar A CinemaScore. Females made up the majority of the audience at 54%, while 55% of those buying tickets were over the age of 25.


Deathly Hallows 2 is the first title in the franchise to be released in 3D. While 3D upped the film’s earning potential, only 43% of the opening gross came from 3D theaters, another reminder that moviegoers in North America are opting to see films in 2D and avoid the extra upcharge.


That didn’t hurt IMAX, though, which played Deathly Hallows 2 in 274 theaters. IMAX theaters supplied $15.5 million in revenues, a record for the large-format exhibitor.


Deathly Hallows 2’s overall box office glow fueled a great weekend overall, with revenues up as much as 37% over the same weekend last year.
Paramount’s Transformers: Dark of the Moon became the first film this year to jump the $300 million mark, grossing $21.2 million over the weekend for a cume of $302.8 million.


Disney’s new kids entry Winnie the Pooh met expectations in its debut, grossing $8 million in its debut. However, the film only placed No. 6 for the weekend, coming in behind fellow Disney/Pixar pic Cars 2, which grossed $8.3 million for a domestic cume of $165.3 million.


Sony Pictures Classics’ Midnight in Paris is now Woody Allen’s top domestic earner of all time, grossing $1.9 million for the weekend from 706 theaters for a cume of $41.8 million, surpassing the $40.1 million grossed by Hannah and Her Sisters.


Breaking Dawn


‘Twilight’ fans have received an early treat: A new clip of the wedding between Edward (Robert Pattinson) and Bella (Kristen Stewart) has hit the Web.

In the 15-second promo from Breaking Dawn: Part 1, Bella is seen from behind walking down the aisle in the middle of the forest as Edward waits at the altar under a stunning arch of flowers.

Bella’s wedding dress appears to be long-sleeved and fitted at the top; blue and white crystals adorn the top of her veil.

When it came to the dress, Stewart said she had little say. “It’s such a big deal,” she told MTV News last year. “It’s such a big decision. I have a little hand in having a decision–or having an opinion more–but I think it’s pretty much up to Stephenie [Meyer],” author of the best-selling book series.

In the book, Bella’s dress is described as old-fashioned with a contemporary twist. “You look like you just stepped out of an Austen movie,” Bella’s mother tells her in one passage.

Stewart said she had no doubt the dress would be “beautiful.” 

Summit Sues to Identify Who Tweeted ‘Breaking Dawn’ Pics

The wedding scene “was like a real wedding, in that it was stressful,” co-star Elizabeth Reaser – who plays vampire matriarch Esme Cullen – recently told MTV. “It took a lot of planning, a lot of organization. That was stuff we were all dealing with [and it was like] you were planning a real wedding.

“And the nerves … I mean, there was an added element of nervousness when we were shooting it, maybe because there were helicopters and people jumping out of trees with cameras, but it was definitely a heightened couple of days on set,” she continued, referring to the paparazzi who were trying to snap photos. “It took several days to shoot, and at a certain point you don’t want to be in a corset anymore.”

Nevertheless, Reaser said: “It was really magical, and vampires aren’t supposed to cry, and that created a real obstacle for all of us vampires. Seeing Kristen walk down with aisle with [her movie dad] Billy Burke. I mean, seeing Billy Burke killed me. I understood in that moment what it’s like to be a parent and seeing Kristen and see her really be nervous and see Rob really, really be nervous, and the two of them [together with] the families coming together; it was an emotional day for real.”

A longer clip will be played during the MTV Movie Awards, which air Sunday, June 5 at 9 p.m. ET. Saturday Night Live‘s Jason Sudeikis is host.

The Twilight franchise is up for eight awards, including Best Movie, Best Fight and Best Kiss.

Breaking Dawn: Part 1 hits theaters Nov. 18. Part 2 is slated for theaters on Nov. 16, 2012. It will be the last big-screen adaptation of Stephenie Meyer‘s vampire saga series.
