Rob Pattinson: Breaking Dawn, Remember Me & more


In a series of press interviews with MTV, Robert Pattinson (and his Remember Me co-star Emilie de Ravine) discuss all manner of things — including love scenes, Breaking Dawn and Bel Ami. Here’s a sampling:

Robert Pattinson, Emilie De Ravin Discuss ‘Remember Me’ Love Scenes

When MTV News got a chance to sit down and talk with the stars of the film, Pattinson was quick to answer that he was more nervous about filming the sex scenes than his co-star. De Ravin seemed a bit shocked by his answer, to which he responded with a laugh, “Yeah, you were, like, fine!”

And according to Pattinson, there was a bit of a wardrobe mishap when Pattinson and de Ravin were set to start filming one of their scenes. He was supposed to be wearing a “modesty patch” to cover his personal areas, but apparently the costume department didn’t have one available for either him or de Ravin. So they ended up having to take half a bra and finding a way for it to stay on his body.

Robert Pattinson On 3-D, Two-Part ‘Breaking Dawn’

While promoting his upcoming film “Remember Me,” leading man Robert Pattinson said he still doesn’t know whether “Breaking Dawn” will be made as one film or two. As to his preference, Pattinson answered that “it really just depends on the script, either way.”

Pattinson also addressed the rumors about “Breaking Dawn” being filmed in 3-D and, as Stewart indicated in an interview for “The Yellow Handkerchief,” was against the idea.

“The 3-D thing confuses me,” Pattinson said. “I haven’t seen ‘Avatar’ or any of these 3-D movie things yet. The idea of it … I remember 3-D movies from when I was a kid, and I can just picture it giving me a headache.”

Robert Pattinson On ‘Bel Ami’ Sex Scenes

“[The film] is like the complete antithesis of what you normally think period dramas are about,” Pattinson said, explaining that the era, Paris in the 1890s, is what dictates the different views on sex. “In Paris, everybody was just going nuts. It was like the 1980s. Sex was a kind of a weapon and a tool, and it’s odd.”

Pattinson added, “It’s incredibly different. The [sex scenes] in ‘Remember Me’ are pretty tender, and in ‘Bel Ami’ there’s something very mercenary about it in a lot of ways.”
