Original cut of honeymoon scene too racy for PG-13
Kristen Stewart has revealed that the original taping of an intimate scene in the upcoming “Breaking Dawn Part 1” received an R rating and was redone to be PG-13 friendly. The star of the “Twilight” series plays Bella Swan, a human who marries the vampire Edward Cullen. The controversial scene was part of the couple’s honeymoon.
The 21-year-old, featured on the cover of the December 2011 issue of Glamour, told the magazine, “It was so weird, it didn’t even feel like we were doing a ‘Twilight’ film.” The series most popular with young teenagers as always been about young love, but never so racy as to be rated R.
“I was like, ‘Bella! What are you doing? Wow! What is happening here?!’ It was very surreal,” Stewart continued, the details of the scene in contrast to Bella’s normal behavior. After seeing how risqué the sex scene came out, it was re-cut to conform to a PG-13 rating.
The “Twilight” series is based on the novels by Stephenie Meyer. The first three films have grossed more than 1.8 billion worldwide.
